    Our home games

    Each to their own, but I hate the cringe worthy artificial nonsense other teams use after goals. Much prefer to hear genuine crowd support then that rubbish.

    The Steven May Thread

    The rumour came from someone employed at the Gold Coast, who wouldn’t know exactly what Melb would get in exchange for Hogan

    The Steven May Thread

    Don’t shoot the messenger, but rumour I heard was Hogan to Freo for pick 6, pick 6 to GC for May.

    Open Training - Wednesday, 19th September

    My daughter attended this morning, enjoyed the session, particularly pleased with getting some attention from Gus at the end. She mentioned Harmes looked a bit sore walking off at the end, did any other track watchers pick anything up with him?

    The One Question Mark for the Dees

    It wasn’t just the poor goal kicking that kept Cats in the game, there were a number of easy marks dropped inside 50 (Petracca comes to mind) and poor decision making/poor kicks to leading players inside 50. Hopefully nerves played a part in this and they will be a bit more settled this week.

    Open Training - Saturday, 1st September, 2018

    Had placed JKH in the ‘delist’ basket earlier this year, but think his last few games show he has a future at AFL level, though it still might not be at Melbourne. Thought he was a standout at training this morning. Showed a fair bit of speed, which was a bit surprising,, and very good disposal skills, when disposals from a lot of others was sloppy. During the tackling drill he nailed numerous physically bigger players and Viney looked slightly annoyed when JKH wrapped him up in a strong tackle that Viney tried but couldn’t break. Based on recent game and training form, he’d be pretty stiff to miss Friday’s game.

    GAMEDAY - Round 23

    Umpiring is fine, win the contested ball we win, umpires irrelevant

    Go and get Gaff!

    To this point, after the game yesterday on the 2nd deck of the Southern Stand there were 2 Melbourne supporters involved in a push and shove and throwing verbal abuse at each other. They would have been in their 50’s. Not sure how it started but you’d think they would both be asking themselves later how did they get into that situation? How could they make such fools of themselves? What if things had gotten out of hand? There’s a few ‘moments of madness’ that I’ve been involved in that I’m not proud of, but luckily no lasting impact on anyone else. Passion, emotion, excitement, bravado and a whole bunch of other human foibles can result in situations that we regret and wish we could take back.

    Friday Night Lights 2019

    Understand the monetary rewards for the club in more night games, but as someone who prefers to attend games over watching tv, it’s going to reduce the value I get out of my membership. I guess I’m in the minority, but afternoons (preferably Saturday) is the best time to attend. Not only is the quality of footy better during the day due to lack of dew and reduced ball fumbling, pretty confident average scores for day games are well above night games. Day games also are much better for going out with family and friends afterwards to celebrate a win with drinks and dinner and still get home at a reasonable time. Money overrides everything and the attending spectator is becoming increasingly irrelevant.
