    MFC Cactus for the rest of 2018

    True. They were just to good on the day. Let's hope we get another chance at them IN FINALS.

    I think Dee was talking about the Magpie supporter in the wheelchair. The ex Fireman that has MND

    Watts Dropped from Port

    He is a terrific person. When he has been up here in Qld he has all the time in the world to chat to you and fantastic with the Grand Kids. Wish him well but boy he must now know what is required to be a AFL player. Get the bloody ball Jack and use your body more. Big enough, fast enough and all the talent in world but just needs to see ball and get ball!

    Watts Dropped from Port

    We still have a few at our club like Watts that go missing when pressure is on>

    Petracca in a rut?

    Getting his ambitions mixed up with his capabilities.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    That is where our problem lies. To many in packs trying to get ball out with little quick hand passes and as soon as a fumble happens or it gets pushed out wide all our guys are in the pack and away the Maggies went on their own. Doggies did it also but could not sustain it hence we got on top but Maggies to their credit kept it up all game. This is where our on field Generals need to make adjustments. When pressure on we seem to go back to old habits. As I have said before, it is not end of world and we have a opportunity in 2 weeks to show everyone what we can do against the Power. Or I hope so!

    Changes v Port

    Happy with this.Need to realise even when we ere winning easy Hannan, Petracca, Spargo and Vince were not getting much of the ball and poor old Pedersen is just a good, albeit very good VFL player. 5 changes is not that drastic when you have some decent depth.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    Not the end of the world however we have lost badly to Hawks, Tigers and now Magpies with a close loss to Cats. This is my concern that we are unable to match the top sides when they put the pressure on. We MUST improve here or no use being in finals as we will be out in one game. Lot to think about over next 2 week before Port game. Again we lack leadership when we are in trouble. Have said this many times but when the going gets tough our leaders run or plod around by themselves about 10 yards away from any opposition. I am talking mainly about Jones and Viney here. Also in other posts I said Spargo needs a rest. It showed big time today. Other than about 10 minutes worth he just wandered around the ground doing stuff all. Back to the Magoos for him. Has got heaps of upside but needs to get the ball and at Casey he may learn a bit more.He can take the Trac with him. This bloke reminds me of Tilbrook. Big, Classy but no idea and gets ahead of himself.Think he thinks he is better than what he really is. Stint at Casey will remind him what footy is all about. Will forgive Brayshaw, Hogan and others that have had it easy last few weeks for this game but they also need to lift when going gets a bit hard. Maybe a bit of a soft under belly here? Again not end of world but if we do not learn from these bad defeats against the tops sides and finally realise you need to work both ways then we are just making up the numbers. Time for the boys to stand up on a big stage on a Friday night in Adelaide. Can't wait to see the response.

    Changes v Collingwood

    He looked tired yesterday. Depends on whether anyone in similar position fires up today. Also if Melksham is out he Spargo stays in

    Changes v Collingwood

    I will wait until after Casey plays before looking at my changes but Lever a out with Tim Smith and Melksham doubts over them plus to me Spargo may need a rest. Therefore plenty of opportunities for the boys in the Magoos to step up and see who wants to play next Monday.

    Brendan McCartney - Moved to the bench

    And it must be working well as we have given teams hidings since he went to bench. Have talked to him a few times when he has been up here in Qld and comes across as a terrific fella that has time of day to chat. No doubt he encourages and supports the players plus constructive feedback when needed. From all accounts he is a very valuable member of the coaching group and for one I am glad he is with the Dees.

    Changes vs Bulldogs

    The team is finally playing as that A TEAM so no changes unless someone pulls up sore.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, Girls and Boys. We have a serious team here. Enjoy it.

    Hunt is not in the side due to his lack of form and inability to win the ball and deliver it to one of our own players. He was one of the main culprits who just bombed it when winning the ball. He is no doubt one of our better players when in form but can't see him getting back soon. With Garlett you need to remember that only a few weeks ago he basically won us the game against Lions. He has plenty of good footy in him for us and to stamp his papers is plain stupid.In form Jeff is in our best side.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    In the past even under Roos we would have dropped one or two of those so called four easy games. Not now and this tells me Goody and players all on the same page.
