    ANB: Lever building to something "scary"

    @Rodney (Balls) Grinter I will say this though - Omacs form early in the season can be attributed to jake lever covering the space omacs man was leading to. I thought omac got more exposed with lever gone and that’s where my original came comment came from. Hibbo and nev are wonderful but they can’t do it all. Other than that we’re basically singing from the same sheet of music I think.

    I tend to agree with a lot of this actually. Especially re: nev and hibbo.

    ANB: Lever building to something "scary"

    I think saying "most teams would be jealous of our back line without lever or may" is a bit of a stretch when Omac and Frost are the two tall's. Talk about rose colored glasses lol ... Frost only learned how to hit a target in his last few games last year. And while Omac is serviceable, to say he is enviable is borderline insanity. Agree we are in a good position now and that competition for spots will indeed be fierce. Also baffles me that some here think the answer to a struggling back line last year was to remove our leading and most accurate goal kicker from the forward line.

    The fact we made the prelim without him for most of the year is quite remarkable really. I hope he isn't being rushed back. Get that knee right Jakey, we need you in September.

    Foxtel Sports aka Kayo

    I live rural near Bungendore in NSW and am forced to use satellite based NBN services. For the most part, it holds its own and only sometimes do I experience temporary drops in picture quality. I normally watch sport on my big iPad, so I can't speak to the quality of accessing the service over my connection via a browser.

    Leverage can be a powerful force. The wrong angle and even the slightest of acute pressure can end in many ways.

    Have been giving kayo a whirl for the past few weeks watching NCAA football. Foxtel has now been cancelled permanently. Highly recommend this service, it's simply incredible.

    How on earth do they have jones on the ball ahead of Brayshaw or Harmes? Meaningless list I know, but seriously?

    Why do you keep using that word? No one here has a problem with Jesse personally. No one is ‘denigrating’ him. No personal insults thrown, only an assessment of football abilities. Telling us we can’t be critical of a football player simply because he once wore our guernsey is simply ridiculous. How somebody finds the phrase “better player than hogan ever was” offensive really is a sign of the times isn’t it. God, you can’t even compare players against each other anymore according to some. You don’t need to get upset on jesse’s behalf unless he has asked you to do so. Guessing he hasn’t. You also have a choice in whether you go out of your way to get offended at something and make it out to be something it’s not.

    Pert's Plan to Make the Dees an AFL Power

    Many MCC members, such as myself, are interstate members. I’m an MCC member and an MFC member, but many interstate members aren’t Melbourne supporters. It’s really no great surprise.

    To suggest comparing two players and having a preference between the two is denigrating Is pretty dramatic mate. They are footy players, we are allowed to have opinions on them,

    You seem easily offended. I agree with the comment. I’d have tmac over Jesse 10 out of 10 times.

    Tom McDonald Presser (14/12)

    Agree 100%. He was criminally underrated last year and look how many goals he kicked after a late start to the year. He will be regarded as one of the best key forwards in the comp if he finds that next level next year.

    Are you actually offended by this? Wow this is a new one ...

    Dangerous thinking in my opinion. Even suggesting to players that they shouldn't get tattoos for this reason has the potential to cause derision and be quite harmful to esprit de corps. Lines needs to be drawn, suggesting to players they shouldn't get tats is one.
