    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Some people do want him traded, or there wouldn't be a thread this size about it. That's their prerogative. But I hope they aren't the same people that get upset with Clark, Howe, $cully etc. We should be doing everything we can to extend his contract as he's a very important player. I said he ''can'' kick 50 in a season. Given he averaged 2.4 in 20 games I reckon that's a fair statement to make.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Are the people wanting Hogan to be traded the same people who demand loyalty from players? Good players don't grow on trees. Especially key position players who can kick 50 goals in a season and play midfield. Ridiculous thread.

    Is Goodwin the right guy....

    You, along with many others, made a ridiculous statement to remove the coach after round 4. You made up facts about him losing the players. You jumped at shadows because you haven't understood the process of building a team. These are all facts. Being called out on them is not as bad as any of the above. Perhaps try and have some faith that the people employed to run the club, even though that might be difficult after the 2007-2013 period. Be clear that the people in charge now weren't there then and Roos/Goodwin have been very open and honest about the process since they've been there. Has what they have said been wrong? Who knows, you might even enjoy the ride.
  4. Who’s worried about us getting ‘credit’ now? Where exactly does people saying nice things rate on the list of what is important? Think about this next time you want to whinge about what media think about us. All that matters is winning.
  5. So the general consensus in the media is that Collingwood and North are bigger premiership contenders than Melbourne? I haven’t got this vibe or seen it anywhere. Do you have any examples?
  6. Haha just some phone issues there. So a lot of media are claiming Collingwood are premiership contenders but none are claiming Melbourne are? Any proof of this? I just find it fascinating why people are so obsessed by what people in the media think about how we might go this year. The same people that most on here whinge about having no idea. It just comes across as being really needy.
  7. ‘It was pointed out to Buckley after the game that the only top team Collingwood had beaten in that stretch had been Adelaide, with its four losses coming at the hands of Hawthorn, Greater Western Sydney, Richmond and Geelong.‘ Selective reporting by someone accusing people of.....selective reporting.
  8. This thread is embarrassing. Are we North Melbourne? First of all, the OP has drastically misrepresented what was said. Second if all... WHO CARES!!!??? Why would anyone in their right mind give a stuff how much ‘credit’ you get from media for winning games of football? We’ve got a strong team playing amazing football and people still wanna have a whinge. Remember where we’ve come from and enjoy the ride.

    Demons on Masterchef (16/5/18)

    Haha oh Jack. There’s always one. I’d love to know how this is a ‘diversion’. Mass exposure to an audience that otherwise wouldn’t see the MFC, great work by the club. If we lose this week though it will definitely be down to that over cooked steak 4 months ago...

    Maybe we just don’t play the MCG well? We’ll find out over the next month.

    Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    Have Richmond named their team?

    You’d have preferred ‘Yeh we saw the 11 goal loss coming’...? That would’ve gone down well.

    That sounds great in theory and I understand what you’re saying. It would be great if we could do that. If we did we would win the flag this year. It’s also nigh on impossible to achieve. I can’t think of 1 team that did that last year. EVERY single week. In Goodwin’s 26 games that is the first time you could say we were very poor.

    The amount of irrelevant information in that post is alarming. Richmond had 5 scoring shots after quarter time last year against Adelaide. The Crows had 30. Was that an honourable 76 point loss? They really faught on after quarter time did they? You’ve worked yourself up into a huff and think yelling and screaming at everyone after a loss means you know what’s right. You do not.
