    Round 18 - Non MFC games

    I nodded off on the couch at quarter time watching it. Woke up with two minutes til half time and thought I’d awoken in a parallel universe. Saw every minute of the third quarter though and they are absolutely dominating. A better side would be up by 40 now. Hope they finish the job. Sydney falling at this hurdle is massive.

    MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - Round 18

    I’m really nervous about this game, but only because of its value to our finals aspirations. It’s the most important of all those remaining on the schedule considering Geelong are one of our key rivals on the ladder. I’ve seen this Geelong team fold to pretty uninspiring teams a few times this year. Talent for talent, this game is quite winnable.

    The Many Sides of Jake Melksham

    Great article. I didn’t know Hibberd and Melksham were such close mates before they came. Obviously they’re grown adults, but still being able to walk in to the club together would have taken the edge off the nerves. Because I’ve become a spiteful footy supporter, my favourite part about all this was that Melksham was Watts-level (or even greater) whipping boy at Essendon. The fact that he’s come here and become an important member of the team and even pretty popular among the fans gives me great morbid pleasure. Suck it, Essendon. Hope it stings. When he’s going he’s an such enjoyable player to watch: a reliable contest winner, gets the ball to boot very quickly, and is an absolutely fantastic kick. He won’t always fire which is probably what separates him from the very best, but no doubt he’s an asset to the club. Congrats Jake on the 150!

    Hibberd Ruled Out of Cats Clash with Quad

    We’ve had umpires down to training before as well guys. It’s common, not the sign of a conspiracy. YIKES IT’S A SHADOW!!!

    Hibberd Ruled Out of Cats Clash with Quad

    So he’s definitely talking about Marrara Oval, where we spend 4 hours s year, and there’s absolutely no chance he’s talking about our training ground, where our players spend a dozen hours a week, which was recently described by a Demonland member as being rock hard? I’ll never understand why people choose the conspiracy theory over the simple and logical conclusion.

    MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - Round 18

    This seems to be the most unlikely of all the suggestions. Has looked well past it whenever he’s played this year.

    Darwin game to be dumped?

    Do you understand the difference between anecdotal evidence and actual research? This is not the first time this week I’ve seen you call on your very narrow personal experience to draw a very wide conclusion.

    Hibberd Ruled Out of Cats Clash with Quad

    I think Hibberd’s actual defensive “craft” (I hate that word) is what will be missed most, and why an actual defender needs to take his place. This is why Hibberd is an important player - he’s effective in both the attacking and defensive elements of the game. Melksham, Fritsch et al can assist with the rebounding, but they’re not true defenders and I’d say will almost certainly be found wanting when the play demands solid defence. It’s a conundrum.

    Hmm. Maybe I am underestimating his drive. Oh well, we’ll see how we go.

    Goodwin Presser 18/7

    Staggering that Goodwin would use words in a press conference. What was he thinking.

    Hibberd Ruled Out of Cats Clash with Quad

    It’s probably a controversial opinion but I reckon his ball use when at full tilt (ie creating run and drive) is often sub-par. I’ve seen him kick it directly to the opposition as often as not. I honestly think Smith or Wagner can cover that aspect of his play. It’s his contested work and support for his teammates in the back half that I think we will miss.

    Is Hibberd irreplaceable? He’s a good player, but I don’t see this one hurting anywhere near as much as losing Viney or Lever.

    Yes, probably best you don’t mention Gawn or Oliver 😁

    Opportunity for Wagner or Smith. Obviously either would be a downgrade, but not so significantly that it’s a game changer in my opinion. Injuries happen. No point getting too upset about it.

    Jason Taylor Resume

    Every single club has those coulda-woulda-shoulda moments. If a club manages to find some absolute jet at a pick in the 40s, it usually means every club has passed on him at least once, including the one that took him. You might say “we could have had Cripps/Brown/Whoever” - but so could just about everyone. There will always be wins and busts in the draft. Taylor’s strikerate is as good as anyone’s.
