    Harmsey Ready to Wreak Havoc Again

    Sorry but I think you are way off the mark here. Harmes has displayed far more than the two you mentioned combined. The scalps he claimed last year speak for themselves, and when combined with his average possessions and score contributions its hard to argue that he is an unproven commodity.

    I really hope May lines up on Hogan this year and the many months of arguments on DL are put to the test

    Are you suggesting a statement cannot be arrogant because it is a "genuine personal opinion"? What planet am I on today lol

    And I think you mean pastime ... how awkward Feel free to read my comments more carefully. I think you'll find our opinion on UFC and eSports are actually the same. (spoiler alert, I don't like them either). I just don't see the need to cast other peoples interest's as irrelevant because I'm not interested in them. Live and let live is the moral I guess.

    please elaborate my point stands. just because you don't understand the appeal of something, doesn't make it a "silly past-time". its actually quite hilarious watching you older blokes band together like this and aggressively defend your opinions on things you clearly don't understand, or even care to understand on any level.

    nor does a single persons opinion in most cases

    I'm not a fan of either of them actually, but I'm also not arrogant enough to assume that something isn't worthwhile simply because I don't like it.

    Multi-billion dollar global empires in UFC and eSports are silly past times? What cave did you just emerge from after a 25 year nap?

    Opposition Watch: Rd 1 vs Port Adelaide

    I see what you are saying, but don't think it takes a "super human" to be taught to block out distractions and focus on playing your role for the team. In fact if a player can't be trusted to do that simple task, maybe we'd be better off not having them on the list, no matter how talented they are. Pretty sure Goody has weeded out the individuals that fit this profile now (YOU READY, @nocontractrenewal)

    Opposition Watch: Rd 1 vs Port Adelaide

    The game has grown quite a bit since the 90's man. Players weren't expected to be anywhere near the level of professionalism as they are today. Footy ain't a part time job anymore, and players are now coached accordingly. Training isn't just physical anymore, players also have their minds trained. This is why I find it hard to believe that a professional footy player these days would take any cues whatsoever from myself or any other fellow fan of the club. In fact that just sounds downright insane to me. With all due respect, I think your MFCSS is so deeply ingrained that this feeling of expectation from the team simply doesn't compute with you, and your mind is desperately looking for ways to prove to yourself that this will all come undone and we will soon return to mediocrity (which you may strangely feel more comfortable with). Clutching at straws would be a huge understatement here if your honestly trying to convince me that my arrogance could start a chain reaction that would see the Melbourne footy club back on its knee's.

    I get it. My point remains - if players are seen to be becoming comfortable with our position and "believing the hype", then I have an issue. Fans sharing their opinions on DL has no bearing on how the team will perform, therefore it's not up to you to tell people what they should and shouldn't think. Have your opinion (which you obviously feel strongly about), but allow to others to have theirs. I choose to be arrogant and I'm enjoying every minute of it!

    And please accept my apologies for the over-the-top sanctimonious speech I agree with this, and would be concerned if I saw any indication that the players were showing signs of arrogance. The original comment in question was around ET saying he thinks we'll win by 10 or so goals. How have you decided this is "arrogance" and what metrics are in play here? Are we not being a little sensitive here?

    Wattsy may also require surgery to a damaged septum. More to follow.

    Yes. Comments on an internet fan forum have a direct correlation to how the team will perform. The players probably look to DL to gauge how confident they should be and we therefore have a great responsibility of ensuring we never get excited or portray any sort of confidence whatsoever in the boys. Thanks for handing us a round 1 loss with your irresponsible comments @Ethan Tremblay. Calm down and stop trying to be everyone's dad Sydee, we are allowed to be excited and expect greatness this year. Enjoy the ride, or at the very least, allow others to be excited if you insist on being a wet blanket.

    if you are actually offended by this, you live an utterly depressing life and I feel sorry for you.
