    TMacs Toe .... Again?

    I'll remain concerned and hopeful until I see him hit the track and can judge his condition for myself. Can't rely on the club to update us about key injuries when they occur

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Easy to take post shots at the guy. Will remain a favourite even in freo colors. Gave us hope when we needed it. Hard trainer off field coming back in great condition at the start of the last preseason and was leading b and f or close before injury. Can't doubt his commitment to the club and hasn't broken any laws. We have all been on a bender in the past and good luck to him what he does during his break as long as mentally he is ok

    Training - Friday, 21st December 2018

    Doing some match simulation stuff. About 20 on field. About 6 off the bench. Shortened oval with no real tackling or goal kicking. Seems more about running, decision making and ball movement. Of the 26 l counted roughly 8 that would be in our starting 22 which includes May. Doing circuit activities now eg weights, ropes, sprints, bags, short kicking, excercises etc. Looks like fun actually. Good energy around the group. Numbers training are a continuing concern though. 22 mfc staff 😀

    Training - Friday, 7th December 2018

    At the end we had around 15-17 players doing the sprint sessions and I counted 25 MFC staff on the ground or on the fringes. Must have been some very special skill based sprinting they were doing (just kidding!) ... pretty sure I saw Neil Craig talking to coaching staff as well
  6. Lord Travis, you will find there is a group of posters here that don't want to believe its possible that we miss manage injuries and the communication of them ... the usual line is to say you are not a medical expert. Its fair to say none of us are experts on any of the other inner working of the club either but we still post about them. Our track record is poor and many are in denial. Understand we were reviewing the sports science team (Peter Jackson indicated a while ago) but nothing appears to have come if it.
  7. That may be the case DS, but as a supporter / member I couldn't give a rats about what set up there is behind the scenes amongst the journalists - AFL,.com.au, channel 7 or the Bendigo Advertiser for that matter. I'm only interested in how well I'm kept informed by the club. When injury news comes from outside the club first, it creates the perception that we are trying to manage supporter expectation/hide potentially bad news. The club has some history on this. And its not minor news when we are left to guess how the 2nd reco is going to our very well paid recruit for which we paid 2 first rounders.
  8. Why we need to rely on outside media to advise members and supporters of injury issues is beyond me ... disappointing

    Gary Pert?

    Suspect he is ramping up his planning for the new training venue after the win by labour and we will hear from him when they have an update. That's what I'm hoping anyway!

    Peak Petracca

    Track is coming back from a knee op which affected him last season and is in the rehab group. This talk of him needing to pick up his game somewhat is premature. He won't be able to elevate this fitness levels until next season. Lets hope he gets his knee and body right to play round 1 and can build up his season accordingly.

    Training - Friday 30th November, 2018

    Sparrow look the pick of the bunch in the running drills they did at the end i.e. 2 sets of 3 by 300 sprints. Little bit of a gap to Bedford and the others. Not surprisingly, Bradtke was bringing up the tail

    Who’s left?

    Would like all our small picks to have a touch more dash given the rule changes to the game and where its heading. Not sure how many are around in the draft however
