    Congratulations Daisy

    Can't help but love Daisy. Unlike some who have come from relative obscurity to stardom, Daisy demonstrates humility, good sense and admirable values. Congrats to her, her partner and families.

    Thanks Doctor. I don't even know what the [censored] Instagram is - much less an Instagram model. Perhaps a poster could enlighten me?

    Weids ready to grab opportunity with both hands

    My grasp of Mathematics is not so poor. The 5% refers to Melbourne's total goals for the season. ( which was 360 odd) My point, perhaps made with less clarity than I wished ….. and too much claret... was that not only did Hogan's 47 goals need be replaced but also allowance for a 5% increase in total score.

    TEN YEAR CHALLENGE

    There is one name on that list that still causes me to shake my head in bewilderment, disappointment and sadness. Liam Jurrah I still can't help but wonder where he might have stood today among the pantheon of MFC greats if his life had not gone to [censored].

    It has been an interesting exercise watching Weid's development. I was present at some of his earlier games where he didn't seem to have a clue about, as the great Captain Blood would say, "being where the ball's at". However, the club persevered with him and he has developed both physically and as a player. The culmination being his efforts in last year's finals. So what must we expect of him this year? Well Hogan has taken 47 goals with him to Freo. It also seems very possible that rule changes will lead to higher scoring this year. Let's just guess a figure and say 5%. That means we have to find 65 goals for this season. Presumably other players will step up. Nonetheless , Weid as a key forward, should be a major contributor. Is it reasonable …………..likely ……………….or even possible that a young and still developing Weid can kick 40 + goals this season?
