    Brownlow Medal 2018

    Yes. I truly hate the telecast of the Brownlow. Can’t help myself though.

    Brownlow Medal 2018

    I’m amazed at how well you guys remember who played well in what games. I’ve got a pretty good memory but I reckon I’m doing alright when I can remember whether or not we won the game, let alone who played in it and if they went well. It shocks me every year.
  3. When has anyone said we were guaranteed a prelim? We could get smashed by injuries next year and finish 14. Everyone with a brain is aware there are no guarantees. It doesn’t change the fact that our list profile is still heading in the right direction (towards peak), which maximises our *chances* of doing well. Chances being the operative word.
  4. As others have said, the initial disappointment for me faded quickly. I was through the worst of it by the time I’d polished off my pulled beef and gravy roll when the third quarter started. I’m just excited now and miffed that I have to sit through another long off-season before next year. It’s a month shorter than normal this year though! Regarding leadership and culture change: Jack Viney is about as hard to listen to as any skipper I’ve seen, but his post match with Burgs is worth a go. To paraphrase he mentions that he’s proud of the effort and growth of the team, but that we absolutely have to take our chances when they arose. To me it’s the first sign I’ve seen that there’s more to his leadership than “leading by doing”. I truly think he gets it. This team to me has a track record of learning from its poor performances. It’s becoming cliche when Goodwin says you win or learn, but I think the team’s actions match. Bring on 2019.

    Who was our Mr September?

    I would have said TMac before the game but he was a strong contender for WOG yesterday. Definitely Viney for me though.
  6. I’d say selecting Fritsch as a wing when he’s been playing his best footy off half back since Lever went down, in a cut throat prelim, also qualifies as trying to be clever. And all the discussion was around Fritsch vs Tyson - even Clint himself said in this thread he understood why Smith was picked. I thought it was obvious, rather than left field. Tossing that one in now is moving the goalposts. Anyway, it doesn’t matter now. I still reckon that with the level of pusitude we displayed, we could have picked Dorothy the Dinosaur and wouldn’t have been any better or worse off.

    Casey Demons v Box Hill Hawks - VFL Grand Final

    Yes, I get that. They even wear an MFC like jumper. That’s why I watched it too - I support the MFC and it’s players. Just saying it didn’t cut much, because I feel no connection with that club. I know others will feel differently, especially folks like drunkn who have a personal connection and others that go along and watch a lot, but for me it’s for interest only.

    Casey Demons v Box Hill Hawks - VFL Grand Final

    Disappointing for the boys who have been playing there all season that they couldn’t get across the line. Can’t say I feel too much personal connection to Casey myself though. It surprises me that some are behaving as if this is some extension of yesterday.

    Casey Demons v Box Hill Hawks - VFL Grand Final

    Seems weird watching a VFL game at a big stadium with a few people there.
  10. That may be the case, but Fritsch not getting a touch with the way we were playing isn’t unimaginable either.

    Pies Gone Past Us ??

    Remember a couple of years ago when St Kilda went past us? 😂 I agree with your analysis of the topic at hand.

    GF Ballot Barcode

    The more I think about this, the more it makes me seethe. They’d have a handsome contract with the MCC anyway; they raise an absurd amount of money through this mechanism for a ballot that costs them near nothing to run, that half or more of the entrants end up ineligible to win anyway. I might write the ACCC a letter. Or more likely, just go to bed and wake up finding I no longer give a s*** about this silly matter 😁

    GF Ballot Barcode

    I want my $5 back! How's the cheek of charging $5 to go in the ballot by the way, and running it a week out, forcing 4 teams worth of supporters through the system? Ticketek probably made a cool $500,000 or so out of that little stunt.
  14. You should know by now that on here, if you're not homocidal/suicidal over the result, it must mean you're happy with it.

    It’s the game plan

    Don't think "miss the mark with handballs, slip over, don't bother tackling, and kick the ball directly to Hurn or McGovern every time" are elements of the game plan. The game plan to me is this: Have Gawn tap it down a running mid's throat Failing that, contest the heck out of it If you don't win the ball, make sure the opponent's disposal is under as much heat as possible It's a game plan that stacks up - in fact, it's what West Coast just smacked us with today. We lost today because we didn't deliver the plan and the very good opposition did.
