    WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - CLAYTON OLIVER

    One under-rated aspect of Robbie’s game, and where he’s currently got Oliver covered , was his aerial skill. Unfortunately because Melbourne games rarely got TV coverage (and if they did 10 minutes of one-camera coverage) there’s only a few videos of a couple of famous Robbie high marks. But he took them most weeks, and many better than those on video. He was fearless and sublimely skillful overhead, winning contests he had no right to even get to. Unfortunately this part of his game is not documented nearly well enough. Not a crash the contest beast, but a cat-like leap and balance. There’s not a player past or present that readily comes to mind to compare him to.

    What really annoys me is all the times they’re just replaying the set shot for goal; not the play prior that led to the shot. Is this the most un-useful thing you can replay?

    POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 22

    This looks like one of those internet gags where you start a sentence and then finish it through your phone’s predictive text

    And, by the way, two years in a row beating Adelaide in Adelaide and West Coast in Perth!

    Trengove to Debut for Port

    Trenners now and James Macdonald playing for the Giants are the only times I've felt really positive to ex Demons still playing. Go well Jack.

    This is Collingwood's Grand Final, after all.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 12

    Overall Melbourne 83 wins, Collingwood 147 wins, 5 drawn Well this caught my attention from the Match Preview. Given the historic strength of Melbourne and Collingwood this is quite a chasm in wins!

    I think Etihad Stadium was attacked at Half Time in the Essendon game, and all who were present were dispatched to this strange afterlife.

    Wallace Urges Adelaide to Target Lever

    That was the first ever report by video, and they invented the rules for it on the spot. No umpire saw it at the time. Ultimately six weeks suspension IIRC.

    Hell NO... blues and the priority draft pick

    For those too young to recall, the clear sentiment on here around 2011/12, when we applied, was that if Melbourne of that era didn't qualify for a priority pick, no-one ever would. So just get rid of the pretence of having them. Then Brisbane, who'd played finals only a few years before, got given one the following year.

    MATCH PREVIEW AND TEAM SELECTION - Round 10

    According to Sportsbet we’re already favourites for Bulldogs and Collingwood games as well (not surprisingly).

    Tom McDonald - Ready to Re-sign?

    The same progression worked for David Neitz, and he went OK.
