  1. Wayne Carey: Dees Not a United Team

    That was the point of my earlier question. It was well publicised that Hoges and Goody had a meal with Carey, as per Andy’s links. I was wondering whether there was anything beyond that to justify a “Carey is pretty tight with J Hogan” claim, on which to base a query about whether Carey got some possible “good oil” about the vibe at MFC. It would seem not.
  2. Wayne Carey: Dees Not a United Team

    Is that something you know, or are you speculating?
  3. Becoming relevant again

    Whatever the pros and cons of the parking ban in Yarra Park, at least we are in 2 of the 5 blockbuster games at the G during H&A where the parking ban applies. A green shoot of relevance, I guess.
  4. Nibbler was with Viney and Lewis doing some work with Crossy early in the session over near the music box on the Punt Road side. IIRC they seemed to be moving OK, in a rehab group kind of way. Joel Smith kept bobbing up with some nice touches in the main drill, and looks raring to go. Good to see!
  5. Poll: Who Impressed Most in JLT 01

    Agree. Re Harmes, he has always shown he has some nice attributes, but I thought Saturday’s effort was a more assured, mature offering from him than in his previous seasons.
  6. 2017 Player Reviews: # 36 Jeff Garlett

    I see Mark Robinson has him in his SuperCoach team today in the Hun. Playing for Carlton! Does Slobbo know something we don’t? No, let me re-phrase that.....
  7. Preseason Training Week commencing - 05/02/18

    In my limited viewing of training this pre I would say that Max's improved mobility is something that has particularly caught my eye.
  8. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    Agree on both counts. And on the PR side, there was no way this wasn't going to get out as a story.
  9. Word was that Oscar was spotted later in the pool, thrashing his arms around as he managed to propel himself from one end to the other and back. Apparently some were saying that this was another poor effort, as it was clear proof that he had failed in his attempts to walk on water.
  10. Saty, it's like panning for gold on a good prospect - ya gotta ignore the dross and appreciate the nuggets, not the other way round. Keep up the good work!
  11. Nibbler - how good can he be?

    If memory serves me correctly....he finished 8th in the B&F on a votes per game basis (19 games). Suggests he's already up to his armpits in the best 22 of the coaches. Has been a surprise packet, and it's great to see. On the basis of what he's already done against expectations I would be hesitant to say that he's "topped out", and I look forward to more development next season.
  12. Jumper Numbers 2018

    Was wearing it out on the track when I was there briefly at end of session.
  13. Famous MFC jumper number

    #11 - Laurie Mithen. Gun.
  14. If memory serves me correctly... 1997 Doggy Brown 2002 Ryan Ferguson 2007 Tom McNamara 2009 Not Utilised We've made pick 66 our own over the years, although probably with decreasing effectiveness. Red, hoping your prediction comes good, and good luck to the young fella.
  15. Best MFC team in last 50 years

    This thread caused me to look up the stats in relation to Peter Moore. My recollection was he was in that small category of player who Brownlow'd, but didn't win the club B&F in the same year. In 1984 he scored 24 votes to win the Brownlow, with Robbie Flower 3rd on 19 votes. Gerard Healy won our B&F that year, and garnered 2 Brownlow votes. Amazing! Shades of Geoff Raines in 1980 scoring no votes after being raging pre-vote favorite. A rough equivalent in 2017 would be Toby Nankervis knocking off Dusty for the Jack Dyer. Fwiw, like most here I would not have Moore in the team .
