  1. It was the first hit out of the season, a practice match. They are more focused on keeping to structures, introducing some of the new ideas that they have been working on. Scoreboard is irrelevant, and often, skill execution is the same. This game was a great example of two teams that are expecting to go deep in to September, blowing out some cobwebs, generally going at around 80%, and taking the first competitive step of a new, long season. The players and areas you have criticised are close to embarrassing.

    It sums up where Geelong are at, and what the inclusion on Ablett has done to their team. There's two ways of looking at Ablett in that clip. The first being that he was really in the perfect position for the "cheap" one over the top, but Danger was too slow to acknowledge it, and tried to do too much. Had he (Danger) got the hands over to Ablett, he was in a world of space. But, it was Danger's immediate response to do the individual thing that saw him get crunched. That said, had Ablett put that shepherd on, Danger was also in a world of space (he would've blown Nibbler away). Ablett's selfishness cost them as well. While a lot of what happened on the night can be put down to us just dominating the Cats from the first second, that passage of play goes right to the core of what's wrong with Geelong in general. It's bloody marvellous. Back on topic, Sammy's just a nice boy who can play bloody good footy. My love for him grows by the minute.

    Injury List - Season 2019

    "We may miss a few heading into round one, we're still working towards that but we'll have to wait and see." - Simon Goodwin, 14/02/2019. I'm sure I read somewhere that apart from Lever, all payers have pretty much had an uninterrupted preseason?

    Simon Goodwin on SEN (12/2/19)

    Did you expect something of reasonable quality? If so, more fool you. I gave up listening to SEN years ago. They rarely, if ever, offer anything insightful.

    The last paragraph is laughable. Neepe would've "snapped him up"? Really? Neeld had many, many faults. But I challenge you to provide examples of soft players that he picked up at all, let alone paying a premium for them (via trade).

    If I said to a high school kid to snort a Whizz Fizz, they would know that; A. You snort with your nose B. You do so by breathing in in a sniffing style Dont think you have to be an experienced coke head to know what to do.

    Dees to take on Pies in Scratch Match (22/2/19)

    I think Chook was meaning Draught, as in the Carlton variety...

    I won't be there, so will expect you to post photos and a report thanks DV8. Out of curiosity, what's your residing postcode?

    MFC Family Fun Night - 13/2/19 @ 4:30pm

    I just Google mapped the directions from my place, and the current travel time is 1 hour 30 minutes. I finish work at 4:30pm, so that would see me getting to the ground, at best, at 6pm. If you think for one minute that I'm going to oblige and attend this event, just to get there in time to watch the opening credits of Jumanji 2, then you think wrong. I appreciate that this is to celebrate the 10 year partnership with Casey, so it makes sense to have it out that way. It does put great restrictions on the supporters that can attend though.

    Training - 2nd February, 2019 @ Maroochydore

    When I used to live in Queensland, the only way I would get any information about the Demons is either this website, or the club website. Burgs did a tremendous job at putting enough content up for me to get my weekly fix. Demonland is/was a great way to communicate with fellow Demons. Burgs was clearly passionate about the Demons - you could sense his excitement after a win, and his disappointment when we lost. You could tell he was, in some ways, living his dream of being involved in the Melbourne Football Club from an employment perspective. Even though I now live back in Victoria, I still don't have the luxury of attending training sessions, etc during the week, so I'm again relying on the Club website and Demonland. What I can say though is that my 4yo son, who is starting to become obsessed with all things Melbourne, especially one M Gawn, I love showing him footage and/or photos on the MFC app/website of the players. I much prefer him, at that age, to get his own little Gawny fix from the Club website than an internet chat room. Personally, I think the preseason communications from the club has deteriorated. I'm not going to slit my wrists over it, and the Club isn't going to lose my young bloke as a member, but it is definitely an area that I would love to see improved, as I enjoy the bit of quality time I get to spend with my son when we are watching videos or looking at photos of the players.

    Training - 2nd February, 2019 @ Maroochydore

    I'm with you DD. While a lot on here used to get stuck in to Burgo's efforts, I enjoyed his Maroochydore diary entries. Gave you a bit of a personal background in to some players/staff through music/movie tastes, etc. None of it would win a Walkley, but for light reading about the club I love it was fine. Definitely think it has dropped off this year.

    The thing I find most distressing is that every article that I have read states how many games he has played in his career. 172? It's criminal to think that he's played that many.

    Don't you think if we re-played that game with our list as it stands now that May would take one of those forwards?

    Petracca wants to start in the guts.

    DL, this is a thread from the star of the 2018 season. Interesting that some had their concerns about his pace back then. The other thing I found interesting was that there were a few "starting" midfields proposed. I think you would be hard pressed to find a starting midfield for 2019 that doesn't include Harmes.

    Stay, can you please confirm if Spargo is standing on 2 phone books or a milk crate? Thanks in advance.

    He should know a bit about "the guts" - he has plenty of his own... (joking)

    Weids ready to grab opportunity with both hands

    I wonder the same thing. You implied that I thought the club wasn't prepared for Hogan's departure, and questioned me on this. I think we know who the fool is. Cheers to you.

    Fair shiner on AVB. Every time I look at Fritter, he reminds me of a younger, brunette brother of Max Headroom. Not sure why. Although, I'm yet to see Max and Dermott Brereton in the same room.

    Weids ready to grab opportunity with both hands

    Bloody hell these types of posts give me the sh!ts. Of course the club would have plans in place. Not once have I implied otherwise. We (the ones on this forum) are discussing ideas, as we are clearly no privy to what the club's plans are. One discussion point is about peoples (again, posters on here) thoughts about their expectations of Weid for 2019. I really don't know how many times I have to explain to you what most of this thread is about. For the sake of this thread, I'd suggest you send a PM to me if you don't understand something that I've said, rather than flooding this thread with rubbish or twisted words.

    Weids ready to grab opportunity with both hands

    So clearly the Hawks managed to find a way to cover Franklin's loss, as well as increasing their total goals scored. Isn't that what we are discussing - the level in which Weid can cover the loss of Hogan, as well as where our further improvement will come from? How did Hawthorn do it? Did their KPFs kick more? Did the small forwards? Midfielders? We won't know the level of success of both (Weid's contribution and the team as a whole) until the end of the 2019 season. But it's good to be proactive about it now, rather than scratching our heads at the end of the season wondering why we didn't cover the loss of Hogan better.

    Weids ready to grab opportunity with both hands

    I think you will find the point being with Hogan gone, that some, myself included, are looking to see where the 47 goals could or would come from. With Weed playing more games, then naturally you would hope/expect that a bulk amount of those goals would come from him. From what I can see, the argument is wether or not Weid could provide the same output as what Hogan has. I think he might just struggle this year, so if he can kick 30 (for example), then we're going to be short of what Hogan would've brought us, so we need to find other avenues. The Buddy comparison is great, and thanks for bringing it up. Hawthorn needed to find different avenues to cover the loss of Franklin. They did it successfully, which is the point we are trying to discuss on here.
