    A History of afl.com.au

    The Match Centre back in those days was pretty cool, albeit clunky. I remember being a young 12 year-old and I was amazed by the graphic which showed a 'dot' for a player which would link up with a second 'dot/player' and showed the movement of the ball on the ground. Good times.

    Mr Jones

    I think his inability to hit a target ('teammate') is a bigger concern. His performance has always been overinflated due to how terrible we've been. Now that he has somewhat decent players around and a couple of midfield jets, in Oliver and Brayshaw, his true skill and worth is merely viewable. Genuinely have similar thoughts on Viney. He's a terrible user of the ball and seems to lack many footy smarts. If he wasn't blessed with the surname he is, I doubt many supporters would have the love and devotion to him that we currently see.

    Changes vs Western Bulldogs

    It will, but I wish this team were at a stage where the ins and outs of the opposition wasn't an issue; winning was an expectation regardless.

    Tom McDonald Contract Talks

    I can definitely see where you're coming from. Two years ago if we had have spoken of his potential departure, I wouldn't have been too fussed at all. He wasn't at all damaging coming out of the backline and some of his field kicking was astonishing. Funny how a positional change can make all the difference, ey?

    Tom McDonald Contract Talks

    I never thought I'd say this, but Hunt is close to one of our biggest liabilities when he's in the side (from a skill perspective). Anaerobically, he has what it takes and his speed is something that all clubs would love to have; the same can't be said for his skills. In my opinion, he's at a cross-road. Fortunately, skill acquisition is something that can be worked on, but I wouldn't be suprised if he doesn't form a part of our side moving forward. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he can get himself back, I openly have egg on my face in regards to Harmes because going back 12 months, I openly was critical of him and doubted if he had a place in our best 22.

    Viney’s foot is worse than we think

    Specialist podiatry term IIRC.

    Viney’s foot is worse than we think

    Absolutely it is. I’ll cop crap for this no doubt, but from what I’ve heard there’s actual three to four different injuries in the foot itself. Essentially, the foot is rooted.

    Blast from the Past: Stephen Powell

    Was also one of the best sledgers in the game. The whole handling of the acrimonious situation was just so typical of the MFC. He was easily one of my favourite players in the early 00s.

    Rd 1 Team with Lever

    I agree somewhat with your sentiment. I don't think he's a selfish player, but he's definitely a shocking user of the ball. We have one of the worst midfields in the league for disposal efficiency, I think there's serious concerns about a midfield of Jones, Tyson and Viney which makes the apparent departure of Watts all the more alarming. All of these three are notorious for the infamous 'long-bomb-forward-in-hope'.

    Changes v Richmond R5

    Bugg was my initial thought too, but, physically, I can't see him competently being able to compete with Martin.

    Changes v Richmond R5

    FWIW, when Harmes plays out of the defensive 50, I see him as one of our biggest liabilities. If he's to say in the side, I'd much rather him remain a forward. Not too sure about Hannan - even in the VFL he played as a forward, didn't he? I'm not suggesting it's pointless, I just don't know enough about Hannan to make an informed decision.

    Changes v Richmond R5

    Yeah, I'd run with Vince on Martin - I can't see the Frost/Martin match up being favourable at all. Then (obviously depending on final line ups), have Jetta/Bugg/Melksham (presuming he remains in the side), run with the mosquito fleet.

    Is that a Melbourne FC tie?

    Steven O'Dwyer and Al Nicholson?
