    Mr Jones

    How big's this list? Anyway, I agree with 55 and others that Jones has had a pretty decent season and is well and truly in our best 22 ATM. It's hard to project too far out, but I'd be shocked if he still wasn't playing in the 1s each week in 2019.

    vanders launches long bomb from the middle

    So good! Hope he's enjoying himself

    There is a role for Bugg

    How do you rate it vs Vince's stellar tagging jobs for us a couple of years back, where he was also getting a heap of the footy himself?

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    GWS upsetting Richmond was a pain for us, but the other results went our way.

    Steele Escapes Penalty for Gut Punch

    I'm more peeved that we didn't get a free kick. Also wasn't the only time Oliver got hit at a stoppage.

    Darwin game to be dumped?

    It's frustrating that on one hand we put so much time, effort and resources - financial and otherwise - into winning, and on the other we then sell home games.
  7. Thanks for the link. I've been crying out for half-decent writing about the game - cricket is so far ahead in this respect that it's not funny. If anyone else feels the same, I reckon there are probably more hidden gems linked to from here: http://www.hpnfooty.com/?page_id=22569

    Is Jeffy Garlett just trade bait now?

    It could just be a coincidence, but perhaps his 'demise' started a fortnight prior to that August 5 game. In mid-July 2017 Garlett went on leave due to the death of a family member, and he was in doubt for the Port game on July 20. Garlett gives our team something I think we're lacking, but to get selected - and stay in the team - he's got to work really hard when he doesn't have the ball.
  9. In my view this is an entirely irrelevant question, and asking it indicates you've either missed - or chosen to ignore - the substance of my post. I'll play along, though; I don't know, but I assume that it's Richmond station. Here's a question for you: Given that the proposed Yarra Park training oval is a shorter distance from Richmond station than almost all of the MCG seating, you must believe that it is necessary to move our home games to a ground that is more accessible for people from the SE suburbs, right?
  10. Surely I'm not the only one reading your posts and wondering what you're banging on about. People with little interest in the footy have little interest in travelling into the city from Cranbourne for a training session, regardless of whether that training ground is around Gosch's Paddock or Jolimont station. Even people with a high level of interest in the footy generally have little interest - or little extra spare time to dedicate to AFL stuff - in attending training! In my opinion this whole discussion about whether an extra hundred metres or three of walking to get to training is of importance is a complete red herring. As bb (?) pointed out, if you're willing to go to the 'G to watch Melbourne play AFL matches - and that's the first step for people with little interest in the footy! - then you're going to face the same logistical issues in getting to our proposed training ground. Walking to the Jolimont training oval would be equivalent to walking to the Ponsford stand.

    Top Red Headed Demons

    Interesting career. In 2016 he played 24 games with the Crows - double his previous best season tally - but then got injured, and hasn't played sighted at AFL-level since.

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    Just like Malthouse to Carlton. EDIT: Monoccular beat me to it!

    Petracca in a rut?

    Yeah, if that's accurate he could probably do with losing 8-10kgs, particularly if he wants to play midfield.

    Ladder predictor

    You think we'll lose to Freo in Darwin and WB at the 'G, but think we'll defeat Geelong in Geelong and GWS at the 'G in the final round? Interesting. Squiggle's auto-predict has us finishing 4th on 16 wins, while I tipped 15 wins for us (5th, behind a couple of teams on percentage). I wouldn't be shocked if some results went the other way and we missed out, though - it'll be an interesting last month of footy.

    Watts Dropped from Port

    I'm already confident that Fritsch does more than Watts could be relied upon to do. Watts had a season where I thought the penny might have dropped, but it was a dead cat bounce.
