  1. Who plays in JLT v North Melbourne 24/2?

    I reckon it will be a hit out for key structural elements, plus a look at newbies and fringers. lock in: T Mac, hoges, Garlett add 3 more for forward group lock in:, Petracca, Jones add 3 of midfielders lock in Lever, Jetta and omac, hibberd add 2 backs lock in Gawn, add some runners. Then in JLT2, run the best 25 as a lead in to the season

    Something I really liked: when the game was open we ran and played with flair. When things got tough, we got tougher. We actually played a range of footy styles (evident by the changing score lines across the night). This bodes well for the season, as the ability to change gears and do what needs to be done at the time may be the big step-up, rather than in past years having one style for every occasion.
  3. The Elephant in the Room

    I thought you were talking about that Preuss idiot from Norf! It is our away strip, and it looked the business! Ps, it is also a winning strip...

    Rapt we won. A good hit out for a few of the boys. Nice to see a mix of established talent with some raw newbies. Plenty to like. No injuries reported (phew!)
  5. Anyone get along today?

    NFI: no [censored] injuries
  7. So the maggots will run out of puff around round 19, be behind the play most first quarters and struggle to turn up in round 23?
  8. AFLW: Rd 2 Vs Adelaide at Casey

    Scrappy early, skills wise. However, as the confidence improved, so did the quality in all facets of the game. Looked a well coached unit, today. Well done Dees!
  9. Maroochydore training camp

    Yeah, saw it was an attempt at humour. About as funny as Donald Trump....
  10. Maroochydore training camp

    Fark! Can we just shut up about the camp thing? Kid gets knocked out in a match sim, hope he is OK. Its a tough game, and I want the Demons to play it tough.
  11. Jones Forward?

    Think of the game as one of rotations: Midfield, secondary zone, bench. Bernie and Lewis rotate centre-back-bench, Trac, Jones (Hogan, Hannan) rotate forward-centre-bench. Stretch wing-centre-bench. Oliver and Viney as almost pure mids (on ball - bench). Etc. Provides lots of options, and also leadership on every line. With Lewis and Lever coordinating the back half, Jones could add some valuable leadership forward if needed. So I'm not against him spending time forward as Trac rotates into the middle. I don't speak to him, or for him, but in the pics posted he seems to be going OK for an old bugger with bung calves....
  12. Maroochydore training camp

    Any reports of what they have been doing so far?
  13. Revenge is a dish best served cold ....Wish list for season 2018

    The best revenge will be winning 3 flags in a row, playing the best brand of football, and having the AFL being forced to give us a decent fixture, Friday night games etc because we deserve it, and the public demands it.
  14. Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    But were they delivering what was wanted for the firsts? JT9 came back into the firsts and was too slow. Being in the bests at Casey is not always going to reflect what is wanted or needed for a particular role in the MFC team. So the idea of ‘form’ based on how someone goes compared to Casey players is different to ‘form’ based upon how someone goes relative to the AFL role required.
  15. Jake Lever

    Blight is about as relevant as a dog thurd on the lawn. I did not read any arrogance into his statements, only a 'calm confidence'. The fact that everyone else at the club is singing his praises, lining up to work with him or off him (see Drunkin's comment re Dec) and you get a sense that we have spent our money and draft picks well. If he improves our back half, and makes others work harder to get a gig, even better. 2 goals a game better? Could be more - both his ability to intercept mark and redirect us out of back half pressure, the change in structure with T-Mac forward, but also the overall leadership and pressure on others to meet and hold higher standards.
