    Dom Tyson - what's wrong?

    I rate Dom, seems like I'm in the minority. Thought his footy was really solid up until his arm injury. He stays in for me and good sides will have depth, challenging players to hold their spot.. i have no dramas with that.

    Open Mike with Mark Neeld on Fox Footy (4/9)

    I find it really sad, the whole thing, people who at the end of the day thought they were doing the right thing, it didn't work out, it actually went as bad as it could be, but honestly, i think its time to acknowledge the past but embrace the future., after all they didn't inject players with potentially life threatening and banned substances.

    Training - Thursday 16 August, 2018

    Kent for Spargo is a no brainer. Weed for Hogan Hibbered for Pedo Melk for Hunt

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 22

    nah not sure mate to be honest, he may not and that might be fine, more of just philosophical thought, i think we looked slow again last week, but you always look slow when you dont have the ball.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 22

    We cant carry Weideman, T Mac, Frost, Oscar Gawn and Vandenberg in the one team, against a side that has one tall forward. Vandenberg kicked 3 last week which was a good effort, but if the coaches have the balls, they will leave him out.

    Lyon: Dees in 8 by Default

    You are being pedantic and the fact is you cant get over Neeld or what happened in the past, but you are right actually, its a bit boring and i dont care what you do or how you think so carry on.

    Lyon: Dees in 8 by Default

    boring response, typical response of someone who cant accept the facts. People need to move on from this, get over it.

    Lyon: Dees in 8 by Default

    he is 100% correct and has been for a while about the club and how it deals with expectations. Its been great beating the sides below us and beating them well, it may help us make the finals, but until we stand up, until we find a way, the club will have this permanent brad associated with them. Its up to them.

    Angry & Exhausted

    Im not a big one on starting Topics and this may be in other topics, so it can be deleted or moved. But I'm so angry i felt the need to spew my thoughts out on (e)paper. Its pretty hard to be more angry than R23 last year, but the loss to Saints this year topped that, now yesterday, I've almost clocked the angry stage record. I find it mindbogglingly that there was not this attitude to come out yesterday against the Swans and have this we are not losing today attitude.. that we are going to win and secure a September spot. Where was it? this apathy and let someone else do it mindset was evident from the start. There were lots of players who should be right under the microscope, but i will start without Captain. Nathan Jones has been a brilliant player and Melbourne man for a long time, at his best he has been a very good player and i have admired his loyalty for a long time, but that does not exclude him from criticism. He was missing in action yesterday, the exact time we needed him. He has no killer instinct, it hurts because its true. Gawn looks a bit cooked, we have asked so much of him that its catching up to him. Oliver will get tagged out of more games as he gets better, he is a legit star but he cant be our only driving force in the middle. What was Pedersons's role yesterday? I love Pedo, but may just be that we dont have a place for him anymore. Hunt's selection was curious IMO.. I think if everyone was honest we should all know that Hunt is not the player we think he is.. in fact i would argue he has regressed and regressed pretty dramatically (Yes, injuries do not help) Jeff Garlett looks like he runs away from the ball, you cannot have a small fwd have no tackles or not create any pressure and Spargo is tired, he cost us 3/4 goals yesterday. ANB is a trier and i love him for it, but he cost us the game as much as anyone yesterday, He fumbles and lacks composure when the heat is on. Not good enough at all. Hogan is the interesting one. I love Jesse and i really want him to be a star, but maybe, just maybe he is not the messiah at all and if anyone doesn't think he wont return home to Perth then i reckon you are being had, he will go home. If Freo come hard for him this year, would any of us entertain the trade, what if its a first rounder and a future first rounder? i would consider it. Anyway, im exhausted by this club, and they may well win next week and that would be great but i have been staunch like alot of us.. but its getting to me, i think it means to much to me. Im not passionate about many things, family and friends and footy, sadly the footy is affecting the first 2.. Im happy for this to be torn down and argued against, its just a cathartic exercise.

    Changes v Gold Coast Suns

    i think we need to make September.. so play our best side. no resting for resting sake in my opinion. we make September we get 1 weeks rest before the first week of finals. Dont make september.. they can rest all they like.

    The Clarry Pass

    the goal assist passes were great but i reckon his 40m pass to Brayshaw, members side at Half back to Brayshaw at HF was sublime. in the 4th QTR.

    POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 15

    I have thought and thought about this and for the life of me i cant understand some stuff whats going on, and i am confident enough in my knowledge of the game to raise them seriously, and i am happy for the answers from anyone, i am not being a smart alec, i am genuinely perplexed. ere are my thoughts: We get the ball inside 50 more than any other team and we play 3 talls and 3 flankers We are the only team in the comp that currently does not play a traditional small forward, yet we refuse to do anything other than bomb the ball to the same place and watch our talls and flankers fly for the ball.. now if this is the plan, wouldn't it be smart to say to a small forward, just be at the base oft he pack, it will come to ground, you will get chances, in fact i would go so far as to say that playing as a small forward in Melbourne's side might be the easiest of all positions. you wont have to go looking for crumbs, they will be there almost every time in to goes inside 50. its doing my head in. Goodwin and his "genius" mates in the coaches box need to stop trying to be smart with Tom McDonald and Jesse Hogan. McDonald must play out of the square, Hogan as a CHF (or vice versa) McDonald strength is he leads towards the ball. how can he do that on the wing? Hogan looks like the last 3 weeks his role is to play between the kicker and the pack.. in no mans land. Oscar McDonald has had a good year, but he is still a liability down there..he need support, how they selected Petty is actually mind boggling and i know hindsight is wonderful, but why the rush to play the kid, whats wrong with letting a key back develop like we do with key forwards. And i have been a fan of Lewis, yes he does infuriate alot of fans, but i have backed him in always, but i think he is out of form and has checked out. Last week when there was blue at half time and he was walking off getting IV by Ch7, i hated that, i would have rather him brush the IV off and run in and back his team. that was a red flag for me. I think his time is up, but what will matter is if Goodwin has the balls to drop him. And why one of our leaders and natural ball winning competitors was tagging someone while our other number 1 ball winner was being tagged is beyond extraordinary, and how it took so long for that to be released even worse. Just some of my frustrations right there, if anyone has the answers that would be great. And for whats it worth i have always thought we are a 10th-6th paced side, not because we are no good, but the comp is so even from 2nd-12th.. but we are blowing our chances again of even being 8th.. and that breaks me.

    My 3 word player analysis V StKilda

    Pass Marks: Gawn Hibbo Fritsch Harmes Viney Brayshaw ** (was lazy with disposal - but tried) That's it. Honestly, that is all i can find. i think Salem tried and others as well, but trying hard should be mandatory.
