  1. Looking ahead .. the Path to September

    Hah, yes, although that's an even bigger stretch as it would involve Western Bulldogs clawing back about 14% on them.
  2. Looking ahead .. the Path to September

    You'll all be very pleased to know that it's still mathematically possible for Hawthorn to make the 8. It does rely on them winning both games and all bar one of the other contenders losing both their games though.
  3. Changes v Brisbane

    It makes me cringe too, but to be fair to Burgs, he's limited by the pretty bland content our footballers and coaches give him. Our group is one of the least interesting to listen to in the game IMO.
  4. Changes v Brisbane

    Got a nod from Goody in the post match presser too last week. The coach is taking notice! Do you know whether the junior players get much of an opportunity to approach Goodwin or get feedback? I heard the odd anecdote in previous eras about players on the list who weren't regulars in the seniors being almost ignored the senior coach.
  5. You Ready for Tommy Bugg?

    This is my argument for not picking him. The only difference is that I don't think it was having him in the side that was the reason we had mojo to begin with, but his act definitely went at least part way towards us losing it.
  6. You Ready for Tommy Bugg?

    It wasn't just the hit being sub-decent, it was the whole package. He motivated the opposition and played like complete poo himself. It was the most clear case of getting psyched out on the footy field that I've ever seen. So yes, I think his teammates would look at him differently after the fact.
  7. You Ready for Tommy Bugg?

    His teammates are afraid he might hit someone else, fire them up and then shut up shop for the rest of the game. I'm afraid he'll do it too. That's why I wouldn't pick him again this year unless there was no other choice.
  8. Match Review Panel Farce

    I'd love to hear @Sir Why You Little's thoughts. I'll tie the noose in anticipation.
  9. The Jack Billings thread

    I did say almost never happens. Remote enough chance not to waste my breath.
  10. The Jack Billings thread

    Zero hope of prising out one of the Saints best young talents. I'm not sure what the relevance of him being out of contract is: he's not a FA and we ain't going to get him to nominate for the draft, that almost never happens. It would have to happen by the same method as a contracted player: with agreement from the Saints. Which brings me back to my first point: zero chance of prising him out of the Saints.
  11. The Importance of Jordan Lewis

    I feel like this "game not getting any slower" discussion sounds a lot like the discussions had about Daniel Cross. They're not the same player in that Cross was a run all day, truly tough inside mid. The relevance is that Lewis, like Cross, was always slow to start with. Injury might limit Lewis in the latter years, and obviously you can't predict that now, but I'm not sure declining pace will.
  12. The Jake Lever Thread

    OMac is a good player. It's only your stubbornness that prevents you from seeing it now. Agree with you on Frost.
  13. Changes v Brisbane

    Why is Watts required to have a "blinder" for Casey before being considered for selection? Nobody else has that requirement. Surely all he needs to do is demonstrate a willingness to contest most of the time which is what he was dropped for.
  14. Changes v Brisbane

    No change.
  15. Gus Brayshaw

    I needed fresh undies after that hit. His mum would have needed a defibrillator.
  16. GAMEDAY - Round 21

    I normally would, but this place isn't near anything. Can't be arsed with all that driving.
  17. GAMEDAY - Round 21

    So nervous for this game, and to make matters worse, I've got to take my 7 year old son to a birthday party out in the middle of nowhere. Hoping there is 3 or 4G reception there because if I can't at least check the scores I'm going to go mad. So much riding on this game. Come on Melbourne!
  18. If we won the premiership

    Why can't there be an "if" thread without someone going "one week at a time"? You can't tell me you don't imagine Demon Premierships from time to time - mentioning it out loud does not invoke some kind of jinx that automatically makes the team lose that week. Dream on, Demonlanders!
  19. Round 21 - Non MFC Matches

    Sure thing, Greene lover.
  20. Round 21 - Non MFC Matches

    You're allowed to kick the opposition in the face? To me it's no different to an errant spoil where the spoilee accidentally gets one in the chops. Unintentional, but a free kick all the same. No further consequences required.
  21. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - ROUND 21

    My understanding of bulging discs is that the only remedy is surgery and that rest won't help. It's also not painful in isolation as there are no nerves in the discs, it only becomes an issue late in the condition if/when the vertebrae either side of the disc pinch the nerves in the spine. It's a condition that takes years and years to develop but only becomes painful when it comes to a head, but when it does it goes from painless to crippling. I could be talking total bollocks, though, it's just what I remember from a session I did on it once at work. @Webber?
  22. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - ROUND 21

    On selection, Frost has been hopeless for the last two weeks. I'm surprised people are surprised. Can't see them going through the hoopla of naming Brayshaw if he's not playing. Think he'll be joined on the bench by Weid, with two of Harmes, Watts and Maynard competing for the last two places.
  23. MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - ROUND 21

    MONOCCULAR - WE DONT READ OR SEE EVERY THREAD - WE BROWSE THE FORUM AS PER OUR INTERESTS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. IF SOMETHING NEEDS ATTENTION, REPORT THE POST AND ALL THE MODS WILL GET A NOTIFICATION, RATHER THAN YELLING IN A THREAD. That was annoying to type on my phone.
  24. Any chance we're "Tapering"

    I'm not sure if our ability to convince ourselves about literally any bollocks in order to see the upside is my favourite or least favourite thing about Demonland. This thread 😂
  25. Changes vs St Kilda

    ? 37 goals to this point in the season puts him in elite company for a small forward. Of course he's going to be given grace for one poor game.
