    Origins/meanings of Display Names?

    I will reveal the meaning on my death bed...
  2. Hunt is highly regarded by Goodwin and co. - how do I know this? (Considering this isn’t coming from a board member I ‘know’ nor talking to staff at training...) Because they played him against Sydney after being out for an extended period. They rushed him in because he’s a point of difference or just better than similar players we have. He will earn his games this year that’s for sure. The wing/HBF will have some pretty handy players fighting for spots; Lewis, Jones, Stretch, Fritsch, KK, Salem, and Smith with Hore and Wagner behind those above. Some will have to find a place elsewhere or stay at Casey.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Well, snorting ice cream will do that...

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    How much ice cream do you have to eat to get as drunk as that?!
  5. Following around the best players in the game would have helped. And, I harp on this a bit, but he was in his 5th year on the list... As a former rookie listed player, he has had no pressure and plenty of time to develop and be ready for his moment.

    Gary Pert?

    You’re amazed? There were reports the AFL were not consulted. There were reports internal staff were blindsided. There were reports that this was less a board decision and more of a Bartlett decision. And yet it is amazing that there is negativity...

    Lewis Giving It Everything in 2019

    Interesting how some of the worst reactions are for those who didn’t read past the headline... If you do this kind of thing, I won’t punish you - the cosmic forces of karma will get you back and real soon. Today? Let me know how it got you back...

    Gary Pert?

    @Colin B. Flaubert - My consternation over the Pert appointment was the process which I have heard (outside of Caroline Wilson’s word) was old Melbourne; rushed, the board not fully supportive, the AFL blind sided. I am most definitely supportive of the club and hope he does well, but I hate that Bartlett has allowed even the perception of this kind of amateurish behaviour with one of the most important decisions a club can make.

    AFL Draft review: Melbourne

    I am an old cynical person about this now - if any one of these players plays more than half a season in 2019 (or even 2020) I would be surprised... We really should do a draft review of 2013. Wait. Wait... Nah, let’s wait a year to do 2014...

    Not as simple as that; we used some of the collateral (ND46) from that trade to trade up to get James Jordan at ND28. So add Jordon and the cost increases by a Bytel...

    One of the biggest actresses in the world wore the red and blue and came to Melbourne training. It’s a good thing. You would be he same flake that would bemoan Eddie being able to finagle the same for his team... It cost us the price of a jumper and we got Natalie effing Portman in it! You can nickname the stunt. There you go, that will make you feel better. Jeez.

    Contract Extension Looms for Goodwin

    That would effectively be a 6 year contract from now... Gotta be irresponsible, surely...
  13. All good points, especially the one about hitting Hawthorn recruiters in the face with a skillet...
  14. Just leave the nicknames to @Petraccattack...
  15. That’s the spirit...
