    PICKS # 23 & 28

    Bigfooty did their phantom recently for anyone that wants a look. https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/2018-big-footy-phantom-draft.1208310/ I'm feeling pretty relaxed about this draft. Times have changed a lot since the BP days. There's a few names in the mix for our early picks that excite me but I won't be disappointed if they're available and we pass on them. Some of BP's picks had me screaming at the screen. Tapscott and Gysberts come to mind as there were players I wanted still available. Jason Taylor has the runs on the board. I'd love Sturt, Williams or a few others with our early picks but if Taylor passes on them I'll back him in. These days I'd doubt the ability of our non selection rather than doubting our recruiting dept. Thank you JT.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Time for Goody to sit down for a serious chat with Jesse. I'd be telling him that we rate him and want him to sign on long term, but our fans have been waiting 55 years and all we care about is a flag. There is no room for egos or mercaneries at MFC Commit long term (at least 2 year extension, so 3 more years) or we'll have to start planning for the future without you. That means games into Weed and no room for you in the forward line. Jesse was All Australian CHB in juniors as a17 year old and I actually think it'd be good for him, no time to sulk as a defender. The evidence available seems to suggest that pick 11 wasn't going to get the May deal done, if that's the case I don't see how Collingwood can get a deal done for May either. He should be available as a FA next year and Jesse will still be tradable, though OOC just like Lever last year. We should still get a reasonable return for him. We haven't burnt May and I see no reason he wouldn't come to us next year. Say what you like about Jesse, strange cat and all that, but he's a serious talent on a football field and he has demonstrated runs on the board as a defender. The worst outcome for us in this scenario, IMO, is Jesse signs long term. Still a fantastic result. We would be rolling the dice with our defence next year but Lever makes it better. We'd also have to find a way to accommodate JH, SW and Tmac in the forward line next year. At a time I think we're hoping to play Gawn forward more next year as well, with Pruess spending maybe 40-50% of game time in the ruck. We'd be unbalanced going into next year but still well in flag contention.

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    4th in the bf and he's cusp of best 22. I don't agree with you and clearly neither do the coaches.

    That was painless. Anybody know which end our cheer squad is at. Got M2 thinking I'd be near the cheer squad but now I'm thinking Hawthorn cheer squad may be there.

    The moment you know when you’re going to win

    It was Hannan's goal for me. i was thinking one more would seal it and when he ran in and kicked it I launched out of my seat and threw both fists in the air. Completely forgot that I'm recovering from shoulder surgery. Finished the game in considerable pain, still sore now, but the smile hasn't left my face since that moment. Go you demons!

    How the [censored] have some of you got through more than once? I can’t get through at all. 2 computers trying for over an hour and no luck. At least it stopped crashing half an hour ago but this queue is endless.

    Been trying for half an hour, can’t get past the queue and it keeps crashing and sending me to the back of the line. Getting very frustrated

    Support Melbourne

    Nothing has changed yet. We made finals and that's great, but it means nothing. 40+ years of the emotional trauma that comes with being a demon is not going to be healed by just making finals. Only a premiership will begin to heal those wounds. A dynasty would go a long way to enabling a full recovery

    Go and get Gaff!

    Yep, got that one wrong, not on my pat Malone there. Happy to admit it and in hindsight very very happy with the result. We pick Wines and Roos never comes and the club is probably still a mess. You on the other hand are pretty much always wrong. Even asking Jones to leave would be a monumental slap in the face. It would [censored] him off after he stuck with us through everything and the younger guys, esp Braysh, would be being told that no matter how good a servant you are we’ll treat you like crap when it suits us. Loyalty is a two way street and your idea would ruin all the gains we’ve made to our culture in the last 5 years

    Go and get Gaff!

    Worst , most clueless poster ever to contribute to these boards. Would do more damage to our club than the forced retirement of Jnr McDonald. There's a saying you should take to heart, "it's better to stay silent and appear a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt."
