    Most Heartbreaking Loss?

    1987 Prelim taught me to truly hate the Hawthorn supporter base. Never forgive or forget.

    Calling All MCC Members

    MCC member and also an MFC member. I made the decision many years ago when we were close to going to the wall. I could not face the idea of not doing my bit if we had gone bust. I only sit in the MCC for away games and Cricket.

    The Co-Captaincy?

    Thanks for the clarification about the date but I am sure that he was eased out of the role towards the end. Effectively his leadership was seen as the end of an era of struggle for the Dorks and the new broom swept through. Either way I hope that NJ goes a step further than RVB

    The Co-Captaincy?

    I often think of Richie Van den Berg who from memory had the Dorks captaincy taken off him the year they won their 07 flag. A club campaigner who did not quite make it to the promised land.

    Training - 2nd February, 2019 @ Maroochydore

    Yep, Saty, I get your loyalty to the club but your lack of balance in this matter undermines your stance. Last year the camp coverage was first class, this year it is an afterthought. No updates since Saturday? really?. It has been substandard compared to what we have become used to. That is a fact.

    Inside Jake Lever's Recovery

    Incredibly impressed with the young man. Wow what was I doing at 22/23? sometimes we forget how young these guys are.

    I shout it whenever he has the ball; I reckon if everyone did it would be a hoot!

    pretty sure he had one sam. I know at the time that much was made of the support provided to Liam. One of his biggest challenges was walking into a club in complete disarray

    Agreed BBO, it does make one realize what a combination of qualities an elite footballer requires to make it at the top level. We lament all of the players who have been delisted over the past 10 years but it is important to remember that they could all play to a pretty high standard but did not have what it takes to go to the next level. In Liam's case he was the most exceptionally talented player I think I have ever seen but his deficiencies were just too great even with those remarkable talents.

    Bernie Vince talks up Tom Sparrow on SEN

    When did you start watching PD? I would be inclined to agree but am curious to hear from people who saw the teams from the 50s and 60s play whether guys like Barrassi stood out in a great team or if they were simply a beautifully coached team.

    I had the pleasure of watching a couple of games in Tarporley Cheshire courtesy of watchafl last year. I get what you mean about buffering.

    Afl.com’s best midfield

    Sliiiightly off topic but i noticed that at Port a certain J Watts is only classed as forward depth. What a disappointment that young man has been.
