    Changes v Port

    VIney hasn’t played to his best or even that close to it since his foot injury. He is however one of our best players and will continue to improve

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    If Pert wasn’t a good get he wouldn’t be coming, it’s that simple. There’s no way Jackson or the AFLwould allow us to employ a Muppet. For you quoting Collingwood sources saying he’s no good you’re probably the same clowns who said the same about Jackson. HE has a simple task, get 50,000 members and increase our revenue

    Carlton want Gaff the most atm. Richmond and Lynch lol good atm McGovern and Sloane will be playing in Victoria next year. MFC heavily into both but along way to go

    The Game, the Press and the future

    The game suffers from not enough pure footballers. For us guys like Neale Bullen, Hannan, Harmes, et al wouldn’t go close to a game at the power clubs of the 80’s. Nowadays every club has these guys just look at the last two premiers. Add to that complete media saturation and it becomes boring. I’ve no interest in any games involving GWS, GC, Carlton, Brisbane , Saints, North, Freo , that’s almost half the league. Add to that the fixture, the bland stadiums and Foxtel and its no wonder people are switching off. It’s just a giant corporate circus with little of the romance some of us once loved. I stay interested because clubs like Sydney are so good to watch
  5. I think they’re better players and we’d could do with the pace of the first two. Whilst winning by a lot has been fun it hid weaknesses that were exposed on the weekend

    In a team lacking a bit of dash Id play Hunt and Garlett. Too good for the seconds in my opinion

    Hunt was our pace but instead of teaching him to lower his eyes we dropped him and now his season is over right when we need him
  8. I also think we should of been playing Hunt, Garlett and Tyson ahead of Harmes, Spargo and Hannan. But that's just me.
  9. Depends if we get beaten easily or just pipped. Realistically our best footy is ahead of us but you've got to take your chances ala Hawks 2008. Beat Port and we're in the hunt. Lose and I think we're out.

    Watts Dropped from Port

    This is tongue in cheek right? I liked him but he’s not in the seconds of my favourite Melbourne players, he’s not even on the list. The pressure of the best clubs has ruled him obsolete and Ken hinkley has just ruled a line through his name
  11. If we can’t beat Port after this weeks loss we won’t of beaten anybody. Yes we’ve played some great footy and I’m not disappointed but if we want to be respected then this is our season defining game. I’ve no doubt Goodwin understands the importance of it

    Weideman and Frost sound good to me
  13. Beat Port our season is 8.5/10 lose to Port it’s a 2/10

    If we don’t win our season is shot, that’s just my opinion though 🙃

    If we beat Port our season is right back on track. It’s a final for us, plain and simple

    Jake Lever injury - Confirmed ACL

    What an absolute legend. Hats off to a young man who takes life in his stride. He’s clearly intelligent and will become an asset beyond the field at this club. We need more like him

    Changes v Port

    If Petty and Baker play we will get flogged. Pedersen and Smith go out as does one of Spargo and Hannan. Frost, Hunt and Garlett come in. We’re a better side with Garlett and Hunt in form. Frost ads pace and hopefully he can act as the third man up. If we start bleeding I’d switch TMac done back and play Hogan one out in the square. We ran forward and over handballed in close on the weekend. Probably a by product of 6 weeks of flogging sides. It’s interesting to note that against Geelong we basically went man on man in the second half and held them to under 3 goals. Wouldn’t be opposed to playing Port that way. Anyway we’ll rest and reload. Port Adelaide is our first final since 2006

    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    We did but I think Frost and Hunt may well have offered more than Pedersen and Smith. Still Collingwood played at their absolute best which we didn’t.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    HINDSIGHT Pedersen selection just wrong,as was Smith. Needed Hunt and dare I say it frost for some pace in the back half. We got used to winning and found ourselves too far forward again much like the Richmond game. We’re a good side but need to beat Port

    AFL 360 (30/5) - Riewoldt and Murphy

    On current form no one would beat us. If injuries remain scarce and form holds we’ll win the flag in a canter
