    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?

    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?

    Changes v Richmond R5

    I essentially agree with these changes, but I'm not aboard getting rid of Bugg. For me, he wasn't the worst on the weekend and I'm not sure that I'd be bringing in Trengove at his expense. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see Trengove back in the side, but I think Bugg is a good matchup for the Tigers and I rate his game. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt that he can significantly contribute to the side, albeit, he didn't have the most inspiring game on the weekend. I think Melksham needs to go back to the VFL, and Hibberd is the logical replacement (I'm not sure we can carry both Hibberd and Melksham in the same side & in fact, I'd probably suggest we can't carry Harmes/Melksham in the same side), but I get the feeling Goodwin won't be dropping Melksham in the short-term.

    Williamstown v Casey Demons

    As much as I'm not a Harmes fan (I think he's one of our biggest liabilities, especially with his ball usage), his last two weeks have been decent. In fact, on the weekend, I think he's one of the only players who give it his all. I don't think he's a longterm solution, and in an ideal world, I would much prefer him not being in the side, but as it is, between Hannan and Harmes, Harmes offers somewhat more.

    Yeah, wasn't directed at you. I've inadvertently quoted one of your replies!
