    The Other Preliminary Final

    Pies were very good against West coast in Perth too.

    Esprit de corps

    There's a lot to be said for accepting your vulnerability, putting aside your ego etc. Everyone has vulnerabilities, while the old "macho" culture will tell you they are a sign of weakness and you should bury them acknowledging them and being open about them in fact make you a mentally stronger person.
  4. Not the move I would have made. I don't like messing with a winning group or taking in an injury prone player. Hope it works out for us.

    MFC - the original owner of the MCG

    We split from the MCC in 1981 and incorporated as our own entity. This was due to the FC constantly having to rely on the MCC to sign off on releasing funds to sign players etc. We rejoined as a sporting section of the MCC in 2008/09 under Stynes/McLardy but still exist as an independent entity for financial reasons. That's my understanding, someone else may be able to confirm.

    MFC - the original owner of the MCG

    The MFC is a sporting section of the MCC so it is one and the same.

    Oliver doesn't care if you don't like him

    Yeah I was more referring to those flopping in marking contests and throwing themselves back when feeling a tackle trying to milk a free

    Oliver doesn't care if you don't like him

    Yep Mitchell initiated the contact, Oliver was just standing there. What about the Hawks players diving forward in marking contests as if they'd been shoved in the back? Or flying over our players as if on ice so as to make out their legs were taken from under them? Or diving headfirst into our tackles so they could get a free for high contact? What about the fact Oliver gets scragged at every single stoppage so has to compete for the ball with one arm half the time? Why is there no media coverage on that?

    Oliver doesn't care if you don't like him

    He braces and bumps back and they keep niggling and getting stuck into him off the ball all game. He lets the bump knock him to the ground and he gets a free and they stop harassing him and he can play footy

    Oliver doesn't care if you don't like him

    Agreed, Hawks players were flopping and diving all over the place on Friday, I guess the difference was Oliver got a free for the most part the Hawks flopping was ignored. Except Rougheads who lead with his head and acted as though he'd been kinghit before the goal in the last quarter

    Giving out barcodes to people who never post on this site will just see your tickets up on eBay within minutes for ten times the price.

    GF Ballot Barcode

    Yeah you're probably right, I guess it depends on which order they release the bays in. You'd assume priority 1 get ground/2nd level first and once that's exhausted they move to the upper levels. When we got seats to the GF in 2000 we were up the top of the old Ponsford Stand. No idea what the allocation was like then though, my dad organised all that as was still a teenager.

    Our supporter stereotype

    As far as stereotypes go, it could be worse. I never understood why being well off is meant to be a negative? I guess you need to be a Richmond or Collingwood supporter to understand.
