    Sole Captaincy?

    Jones came 4th in our B&F and is an incredible (and underated) endurance athlete Viney struggles to stay on the park. Stick with the two. There is no downside.

    But Bugg can't be a victim? I think he was alluding to the differing narratives....

    Biggest Draft Steals

    Yes missed that one. Would be a very short list of those who pegged TMac for a key fwd.....

    Biggest Draft Steals

    Both had great careers, just not at melbourne. Jolly couldn't get minutes because Daniher loved Jeff White. Stef had some training commitment issues as I understand it. Todd V and he didn't see eye to eye in more ways than one...
  6. Both Grand Finalists played with two talls - we struggled against them.

    Pre-Preseason 2019 Update

    Or put another way....nah mate, why would we be interested in tin pot sports around the world when we know everything here in Oz with the greatest game in the world. We'll just do what we have always done.....

    2019 Fixture

    The pies won 14 of their games against the bottom 10 sides. That unequivocally assisted them to a top 4 berth and a GF spot. Sure they didn't win it but 2019 will test the pies as their draw is significantly harder.

    Rating the 2013 Draft (afl.com)

    You people have short memories. Our list in 2013 was shite, we won 2 games. Our top 5 in the Bluey were: NJones, Garland, Terlich, MJones and Sylvia. Roos was appointed and knew that we needed to get talent into our list. Kelly was always going to be a gun but taking him was a risk in our position. The chance to get two top 10 players was a chance to get much-needed talent on to our list. We couldn't afford to take one player. It was a deal we had to do. We wouldn't do that deal today.

    Vale Colin Sylvia

    Sylvia Stynes Bailey Broadbridge Wight Flower M Young This club has WAY too many players who depart this life before their time. Don't know if its cursed or what but we need to win a flag to put an end to this....

    Wallace Rates Dees Trade Period

    Didn't they win 14 games against the bottom 10 sides?
  13. @DeeSpencer is right with the use of Gawn. It's self evident the club thought our defence needed bolstering. You are welcome to your view. I don't buy it.
  14. Fair enough. I would say that the footy dept doesn't entirely agree with you. The damning stat is that we are very poor in defending one on ones. This is not related to a lace out pass from a mid but a genuine 50/50 ball between fwd and defender. And we were 9th this year in defence as well as being around 14th for scores once the ball went inside our def 50. The mids are very important but we still need to be able to stop teams scoring when the ball goes down there. Hence Lever and May. May is structurally important because it means Lever, Hibberd, Jetta and OMac/Frost can play their roles while the oppo's key scorer is being held.
  15. I assume you mean Blind Freddy...in any case it's not that obvious to some around here. We have a superstar backline. No need for May or Lever....
