    Go and get Gaff!

    Gus was pretty cut up on the podcast today as well. People need to respect what he's going through.

    Go and get Gaff!

    No one says it means nothing more than this post here. Gaff should consider himself extremely grateful if any Brayshaw is willing to forgive him, let alone accept him as a team member.

    Go and get Gaff!

    Totally agree. I don't know why there are people who think Gaff is straight to Melbourne, like what he did means nothing. Gus and his family have to come first.

    Those are the kind of punches that can kill people. 8 weeks is nothing compared to what Brayshaw is going through.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    I've never had doubt about Goodwin. He's super intelligent and has massive passion for the club. I couldn't be happier with his coaching performance. Playing group has been developing the past couple of years and while we were really bad in that last game against Collingwood last year, I think Goodwin has really lifted the sights for our playing group this year. Of course that's just my opinion.

    Think he just said we're going to play our best or our brand each game and where we sit in Round 23 is where we sit. The psychology seems to be working so far, I think. Though it will be the next 3 games that test whether we've improved from last year or not.

    Melbourne in the past would have brought that game down to the wire but instead we got a relaxing afternoon at the 'G. A victory next week is crucial, but based on today's performance I'm confident.
  8. Come on, bringing in two extra teams whilst reducing the season rounds is taking the comp backwards. So unfair on so many levels.

    This club kills me

    You're forgetting the club sending members finals reminders just before losing to Collingwood last year to miss finals by .5 percent. Tonight's game hurt almost as much. Perhaps more.

    MFC Cactus for the rest of 2018

    It's not just that we lost. It's the way we lost. The circumstances. Queens Birthday was a massive Day so there was no question about whether the players would go in unprepared (9 day break) or under-estimating Collingwood (Pies were in good form and the occasion overules it anyway). One injury to Jake Lever was enough to cause problems, but not to get comprehensively smashed like we were. We can forgive bad games earlier without Viney and McDonald when MFC was finding its feet, but this was after a 6 win streak, on the biggest stage. Collingwood were well below us. Couldn't we be at least competitive??? I can't explain what happened, outside of lack of experience, the Pies being Amazing, and us just being an Average Team. Far from the Flag contention glory we'd set ourselves up for. To think if we'd won we'd be 2nd on the ladder and then to not even come out and fight for it - shows we are WAAAAAY off being competitive with the best teams in the competition.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 2

    No idea. But there has to be a reason for it. It's every game now. Opposition get a run of unanswered goals every match. We shut off.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 2

    Lions still kicked 7 goals to none between 3rd and 4th quarter. Main issue with the Dees still not addressed and Goodwin deflected an answer on it in the presser when asked.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 2

    I stopped watching when it was scores level or an equivalent in the last quarter. Only 5 minutes left on the clock. I bet heavily on Dees at the line of 22.5 points, I am absolutely floored we got it. I wish I kept watching the end... I really missed out.

    Mentally Fatigued by Our Own Club

    A failure we can learn from.

    Heaven or Hell?

    St Kilda had their chance for a Flag in 2009 & 2010. Dees haven't even been in the finals since 2006. We were the first club, suffering the longest flag drought. If there's a movie featuring an AFL underdog, it should be about us. St Kilda is my second team so I understand the appeal. But my heart beats true.
