    The Dordogne is a cool place, visited it a few times when holiday. Welcome to demonland.

    Also in Perth (Not sure that counts as ex-pat) Watched most of the games this year on the iPad (Telstra) as we don't have foxtel, i'm also too lazy to go to the Western Dee's tv functions, though I should.

    Tom Mitchell out for the season

    I wonder if it will affect his leg speed, not that he was tat fast to start with. I remember Nathan Brown was never the same after his break. Though I'm not sure how the two compare in severity? It will severely dent their chances this year as they transition from their older players to the next group. Scully will be interesting as I think he was taken on as a longer project and not expected to play a lot this year.

    8 Reasons to Get Excited

    When in control you always look faster. When you notice real speed are individuals breaking out of packs and accelerating away. Though more places dont run with it but handpass/kick to advantage to get the break.

    Pert's Plan to Make the Dees an AFL Power

    I remember a debate many years ago. What is more important, the money that we pay as a membership or the marketing list a members to sponsors. I think if you have a MCC membership you should get a MFC membership at no extra cost, but no benefits. The list of x thousand more members is far more valuable than the current payment amount. We don't rely on membership directly to run the club if you look at our overall turnover. But more members allows us to get better sponsorship deals etc which creates higher revenue. It will also push us up the membership tally and get us more exposure and bigger games.

    Have they said where the free kick would be taken from? It could be the goal square.

    Best of 3 Grand Final

    The Eagles CEO likes the idea. https://thewest.com.au/sport/west-coast-eagles/best-of-three-afl-grand-final-series-worth-looking-at-says-west-coast-eagles-football-manager-craig-vozzo-ng-b881024500z It appears to have been first raised by Pyke after the Crows loss. Maybe if they played better on the day he wouldn't have had a whinge.

    Only less physical sports have "play offs" as the player can recover. Football codes, like ours, rugby and grid iron you can't back up a GF intensity over the multiple weeks and have a good quality game to watch. Beside if you know your going to loose the first one, imagine the losing side going in preservation mode and benching their best players for the following week as a spectacle.

    2019 Fixture

    It think it was just the timing of ANZAC eve and the decision of Pies to no longer help us out. The flip is 2020 both will be home games. Plus we do play them as a home later in the year.

    AFLX squad

    We won the first one, thats all that matters, no one will remember who wins the rest. Cause we'll be the quiz night questions answer "winner "Melbourne" I think it was important last year to build confidence. It also helped us in practise some precise kicking and the run to break zones towards the forward line. The format is not that taxing on the players compared to a traditional preseason game. The downside is you can't use them to refine your game style is the real thing.

    Tom Sheridan

    As a DFA I think he worth picking up. Not sure why Freo no longer wanted him, considering who they gave 1 yr contracts too. Handy depth player but could surprise us in a settled role.

    Gee, why did he wear our hat.
