    Pedersen v Weideman this weekend

    Weid should be in the best multiple weeks in a row before getting a gig, especially if we're competitive at AFL-level.

    We might be in trouble this season.

    I thought the post was pretty reasonable until I got to this. Sure, they might knock us off, but 'it's hard to see us [win]'? Seriously? However, regardless of whether we'd won or lost, I did have some of the same concerns re: how we played.

    Ah, disappointments. The Tigers knew all about the disappointment of narrow losses last year, didn't they? How many close games did they manage to lose last year? It was a few, and resulted in their more emotional members calling radio talkback in a rage, and cutting up the membership cards. (They also won the flag).

    That narrative changes completely based on one kick out of the hundreds in a game. The same people who are bemoaning the end of the world would have been on cloud nine had Gawn's kick not hooked left, and that's what I think is silly.

    You've answered your own question: You love the Dees. Welcome to the fold, PommyRules - it's the perfect time to jump onboard!

    So if Gawn kicks that goal then we're flying and the sky is falling on Geelong's season. Yeah, alright.

    Seriously? We just lost by a kick to the team that finished 2017 H&A equal top.

    AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    I totally agree. IMO the talent pool isn't yet big enough to support a bunch of new teams.

    No White for MFC Clash Jumpers for Season 2018

    Us wearing an appropriately coloured short - rather than the traditional white for away teams - would go a big way towards solving the problem.

    I haven't posted much for a season or two, but I reckon you're still rolling out that same line. Hopefully you're saying that the season after our next flag! At the risk of repeating myself, it's worth noting that every grand final there are people who literally cannot get a ticket, despite being willing and able to buy one. That's what the guarantee covers. Fwiw I have not purchased one over the last decade, and $300 seems pretty steep to me.

    David Schwarz

    What are you referring to as 'dispatches'? Plenty of commentators and players have said Schwarz pre-knee was a star, and that he would have had a career as one of the competition's dominant players if not for the three knee recos. Definitely agree with the posters who've said Schwarz in '94 was better than Oliver's '17!

    What we did 10 years ago, or half a century ago, isn't very relevant. Whether it's a good bet or not comes down to how likely you are to get a grand final ticket if you don't have the guarantee, and how much you care if you miss out. People are throwing around the $1000/$1200 amounts like there's an easy way of nabbing a grand final ticket, but the sad truth is there are many supporters who'd happily pay that in their grand final seasons but miss out entirely. What's it worth to you to be at our next flag?

    Isn't that a core benefit of a membership?

    My understanding is that it's less about gate receipts and more about sponsorship.

    That's great (I'll attend the games whatever time they're scheduled, too), but Friday night games bring in revenue. I've always disliked the idea of selling games and always said that once we were on the rise we should stop. I'm hoping we don't renew the arrangement - or reduce it to one game per year.
