  1. Welcome Johnnie Walker (we all need you!)

    Jaegermeister is my nauseator. My god, my stomach clenches even thinking about it...
  2. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    This competition is all over the place. Hard to get a bead on how things will pan out. Makes the capitulation last week even more painful.
  3. Dusty tackles etc at training

    By sweeping the fend arm to the side before it contacts you, it throws the balance off and you can tackle the body. With the arm out of play, locking in the arm holding the ball and smashing the [censored] into the turf is the next objective. you know he is going to fend, so practicing the counter should be part of the prep.
  4. Just saw that Johnnie Walker is now an official partner. After last Sunday, perfect timing....
  5. Where to play TMac?

    Full forward, chopping out in ruck, swinging back only if needed.
  6. Training 19/4

    Seems to be the problem most teams have. Considering he gets away with murder by the umpires, too. perhaps it will be a case of tagging in the midfield and team defence in the back half.
  7. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    I didn’t know he is potentially out with a hammy. For the Chinese burns he will need to be over his wrist injury...
  8. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    Chinese burns
  9. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    Ok, Balic for pressure, then?
  10. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    Add Lewis (inj) and that is 7 from the game on Sunday. (Includes emergencies) would suggest it won’t be this drastic, but could see Hunt, stretch and Balic coming in for speed, Probably need one more tall for balance. If they all go back, then that sends a huge message....
  11. Training 19/4

    I know, right? Have to lift my game...
  12. Training 19/4

    Drove past Goshes Paddock between appointments, and it looked like MFC were training (or about to train). Unfortunately, in the interests of staying employed, I couldn’t stop in. Anyone else attend, and can offer some insights? I wonder who looks like coming in?
  13. Changes v Richmond

    Can we pop her on the rookie list? She is awesome, and would play with more heart than we saw on the weekend
  14. Breaking down the 15 goals to 1

    I saw this article. Shows we are a work in progress. The ability to them to jam us up and destroy our forward entry was evident on the weekend. The review would be interesting this week - it seems we have a lot of 'external review' of our gameplan, and if we fail to learn from it, we deserve what we get. We have to learn to respond, and to hold our own structures for our own benefit - not get sucked into their plans. Seems that this change, made after qtr time, made a significant impact.
  15. Why Melbourne Can't Be Trusted

    and 14 our of 26 games we saluted the judges. If we LOST 21 from 26, there would be some value in this stat. On the other hand, it speaks to the way we set up, and the way that Goody is looking to derive his wins. High press, contested ball wins, hard running both ways. He believes this style will win finals. Any system has its strengths and weaknesses. When we play the system correctly, it works. When we jog and are second to the contest, it doesn't work.
