    Crystal Ball 2019: Predictions for next season

    In the dying seconds of the last quarter of the 2019 grand final, Nev leaves his man, races down field, steamrolls Dusty, picks up the ball and nails a snap from the forward flank to put us in front for the first time - and then the siren sounds.

    Of course its up to Jeff. You had claimed he was finished ("Garlett is finished"). While i was extremely disappointed in Jeff's form last season, i would never make god like statements that a player was finished - i'd leave that to the selectors. I'd be extremely happy if he lifted his game to a level that makes him a best 22 selection. I simply asked if you'd be happy if he proved you wrong this season, that's all.

    For Jeff's sake I hope he proves you wrong ProDee I'm sure you'd be happy if he did. Wouldn't you?

    Contract Extension Looms for Goodwin

    A contract extension is recognition of a job well done so far, and unfinished business. And rightly so. To me, a 3 year extension is the right length of time as it says we believe in what you are doing,, and believe you are the right man for the job, but that with the current squad we believe we should achieve at least one premiership in that 3 year period. If we don’t then we need a new man for the position.

    God we must be bored if we’ve spent 4 pages discussing a visit by an actress some on here haven’t even heard of. Bring.on.the.footy!

    AFL.com.au Dees Best 22

    Given the improvement Frost showed last year, and he ended up best 18 let alone best 22, it would be a harsh call to drop him based on this body of work. As such, I’d like to see Goody give Frost a try on the wing. I think it could be an interesting experiment.

    Phantom Drafts - 2018

    Surely we’d pick the best available players at 23 and 28, and if they happen to be a”fast outside mid and another tall” then great. But no use choosing them if they are not the best available IMO

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I’m sure all players want to be a part of a premiership side. But all players are not solely motivated by this or else there would be no players left at bottom 8 sides. Hogan has “ given up success” because of a higher motivation, which would have made the decision to go so much harder. But as soon as it was evident Hogan could not be 100% invested in the MFC, then he had to be traded. Goody would have seen to that.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I don't believe Goody will want a player on his list next season that isn't 100% committed to the long term Demon cause. Nor should he. For that reason, i believe a deal will be done for Jesse next week.As much as I love Jesse as a player, he now has to go.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    This thread is now getting deep.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I was from the camp that said we shouldn't be trading Hogan unless he wanted to leave. Well it seems he wanted to leave. And to me, given Freo's back peddle, i think this is now a major problem for us. If i was a player at Melbourne, i would not want to be going into battle with someone who no longer wants to be there. And if I were our coach, I'd be telling management to get him out of the club. For this reason i don't think our management are at all happy with Freo.

    Ethan, what has given you this though?

    Go home factor

    The “go home factor” may be real for some, but also a convenient excuse for others who simply want a better deal.
