  1. The Elephant in the Room

    Simple carlton wore home strip for the night which meant we had to wear away strip
  2. 2018 Membership Thread

    Agree 100%, I will renew at some stage no rush but really have no desire to watch AFL, take the emotional link to the club you support out the AFL product isn't entertaining, footballers are robotic and over coached.
  3. 2018 Membership Thread

    And like all clubs we have another group of band wagon supporters. They are the group you need to get onboard for large growth
  4. 2018 Membership Thread

    Win that Collingwood game and we are 3000 in front. Need to grow not maintain.
  5. Un-sportsman like conduct

    I read an article recently can't remember where but it was about Roger Federer. I can remember with the now great athlete carried on like Nick Kyrgios. The article goes back to this point and the appointment of a new coach that his No1 think he taught Roger was Humility and respect, respect for the game and people with in the game. The coach was in a car accident and died soon after taking over as coach. It clicked with Roger and he worked hard on what this coach had started and made him the player he is today. Every Junior coach of any sport should get this article pin it to the club rooms give it out to parents. If you don't respect the game and your opponent and be humble in both victory and defeat you don't deserve to play the game.
  6. Gold Coast propped up by AFL

    GWS should have been a Canberra side and Gold Coast a Tasmanian side, I dare to say over the next 15-20 years they both will be
  7. Neville Jetta Article

    Agree, I always thoughts Jetta had something but we continually played him out of position. He was never a small forward, lacked the tank for a midfield roll but down in the back pocket he has become the best back pocket player in the AFL
  8. Casey Demons 2018

    We are extremely fortunate to have access to an suburban oval 12 months a year. To get 3 home practice matches because the 3 teams we play have cricket pitches is a real advantage for Casey, bit extra cash through bar/Canteen and gate takings also helps.
  9. Don't like the words Stress fracture in feet, history says what ever the club and player says add a month. Anzac Eve match return fro Viney
  10. Preseason Training Week commencing - 22/01/18

    Hoping to see Mitch King through the Preseason matches. Saw him play live in the Casey Finals he is a big man that moves well.
  11. Sponsorship Problem?

    Really the season doesn't start to ramp up until after the Tennis we still have 2 months before the season starts. You would like to have this locked away before AFLX
  12. 2018's 'breakout' player

    For the club to go to the next level we need Hogan and Petracca to move close to the elite bracket of players Like to see Billy Stretch as a break out year, show glimpses last season
  13. Maroochydore training camp

    No I think a every supporter wants and hopes the club is successful but there is as difference from wanting to expecting. The mindset of good clubs is they expect to be successful and not hope
  14. Maroochydore training camp

    No we wouldn't as players would be meeting our expectations. Some supporters want us to be successful and not accept anything less others are just passive and are still accepting hype
  15. Maroochydore training camp

    After putting us through 10 years of garbage and then finish 2017 off not only the last games performance but a player lead cancellation of a camp that focused in on mental toughness, we get the right to take little swipes like.
  16. Maroochydore training camp

    Depends if the players want to do it on this day
  17. The issue with that is your hanging the player with out him being found guilty of any charges. It isn't up to the AFL or MFC to be law enforces outside of the game.
  18. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    If our womens side was offered the to do the same camp they would jump at the opportunity.
  19. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    Agree with this and for this to be needed to be addressed at the AGM is a concern. Deal with it in house keep it in house don't let others get wind of a story that should be dealt with and put to bed. Goodwin should tell his sports science team and Dave Minson to take a spell from training this week and turn the clock back to your 100 x 100's, put the balls away and have the flock them to death sessions.

    Thats what i thought. Took them each week they loved going. Hit school they are the only kids in the class supporting melbourne. They stick fat with dad for a few more years and then they understand winning and losing. I hope for your sake we start winning
  21. 2018 Membership Thread

    Disagree with this. Everyone has the right to decide. Essentially over the past 11 years we have had an inferior product. If any business had a product that bad for that long they would have shut their doors. Our supporters have kept this club alive for an extended period, like our players each supporter decides whether they buy in and turn up each week. Circumstances change both my kids now support other teams you try to steer them towards the team you support but they eventually decide who they will support. Them supporting other teams comes down to on field performance easy to convince kids when your team is winning when their not is easy for their mates to convince them to change.
  22. He isnt wrong. Port played finals last season and have added experience players to fill gaps. We havent played finals in 11 seasons and showed in 2017 we still are mentally soft till we can address that we have no chance playing finals let alone a gf. Moving Jack on was a step to address this but only a small one
  23. Nibbler - how good can he be?

    Only difference Rigoni really hurt you by foot, his kicking especially over distance was elite
  24. Nibbler - how good can he be?

    Could he turn into a Cameron Ling type run with player, someone that can stop but also get his own ball.
  25. We have done so much damage it will take a long period of success followed by another one real quick to get the next generation of supporters.
