    Agreed, and have thought so since day dot.

    What if I want less information and no tickets? Where should I head then?

    Mystery Injuries

    I'd prefer a bit more honesty. I'd love an occasional Dropped (spud) or VFL (Captain's back)

    How do I vote? What do I do? Just tell me how I can ensure that Tom McDonald wins as he should.

    Vanders raring to go

    My mum knows next to nothing about footy but she and I had a good old laugh every time Vanders got the ball in both of the finals we won last year; even she could see he's good at everything other than actually handling the football. Lucky for him he's amazing at that stuff because he can't kick or handball worth a damn.

    Congratulations Max

    Congrats on your fiancee letting you wear those sunnies alongside a backwards-facing pink cap Gawny. The odds were definitely against you there...

    Dees List Envy of Competition

    'May have'? Our premiership drought credentials cannot be beaten, and that's a fact. Also, I don't care for their beginning a sentence with 'But'.

    Vote TMac's Goal

    Tom McDonald's goal was the most concentrated moment of pure unadulterated joy I've ever felt as a Melbourne supporter…but I guess I'm biased.

    AFLX Revamped

    AFLX is terrible. I preferred AFLs I through IX.

    Tom McDonald Presser (14/12)

    It would be a very Brad Scott move to spy on a publicly recorded media conference.

    Tom McDonald Presser (14/12)

    He's a ripper. My favourite player, as you may be able to tell from my avatar. The best forward Melbourne has had since Neitz, and one of the best in the comp. Any club who played their best defender on Jesse Hogan last year when they had a chance to put him on McDonald had no idea. It's going to be a challenge this year when every club sends their best to Tommy right from the outset; but one of the best things about him is his running ability. He gets up and down the ground so much that very few defenders can handle both aspects of his game. Goes alright kicking for goal too.
  15. This is the best day of my life. It's even better than the day I read we were the best Victorian team in the league…back in 2007, when I was young and happy and didn't know what I didn't know. In the words of Bob Seger, "I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then."

    Best of 3 Grand Final

    AFL: "Let's nix the drawn grand final cos it causes too much trouble and it's hard for everyone to back up the big day. Also who cares about tradition!" Also the AFL: "Hey kids let's have a best of three grand final!!!"

    Pre-Preseason 2019 Update

    When in doubt, go with the one that makes the AFL look the least competent, so…I guess "neither of us is right" is right.

    Pre-Preseason 2019 Update

    I remember reading an article years ago that mentioned our anti-hamstring-injury expertise is the best in the world. But that's about it.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 21 Cameron Pedersen

    Pedofacts goes out with a (relatively) very good winning percentage with the MFC. Very underrated for us, and I wish him all the best for that and many reasons more.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 16 Dean Kent

    In the first year of Roos' reign, I felt that Kent was the best of our young guns. He's still on the list, and that says a lot. I hope he stays. But if he goes, it's not cause he's a bad footballer that's for sure; if he were he would have left some time (anytime) in the last 5 years.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 17 Sam Frost

    After a great 2nd half of the year as a defender, could Sam Frost be our much-needed wingman? His relatively poor disposal says no. His pace, versatility and improved kicking skills say…maybe?

    2018 Player Reviews: # 13 Clayton Oliver

    Goes very very well but his 2017 was better. Hope the shoulder surgeries bring back that superhuman hand balling ability rather than the simply elite handballing ability we were forced to endure this year.
