  1. Fenceology Predicts the ladder

    Ouija Board says no! But it has Pt Adelaide as 5th yet couldn't beat ANYONE last season and embarrassed themselves in the only final. Seriously?
  2. Jake Lever

    Romsey/Lancefied is a beautiful part of the Macedon ranges. BUT, emphasis is on Jake wanting to come home AND he chose us, being able to go to any Vic club. Bummers would have been more convenient. The other aspect of the article is just how stressed his life has been last few months, yet he turns up to training early in peak condition. Professional. And only 21.
  3. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    Just an out of ratings season fill in.
  4. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    I think the station recognises quality on-air talent. The best example is coaxing back Frances Leach who is able to converse on all sports and his highly articulate - a true broadcaster. KB is another example of a true broadcaster who just happens to be an ex-champion. Lyon and Watson also. I see this as improving the stable, albeit its tough on those leaving and much sympathy to them. The Drive show was a standout weakness for the business. I'd be mortified thought if Hird was appointed.
  5. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Agree. and few 7.25 games on Seven on Saturdays evening will go into Melbourne live also.
  6. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Fair comment and I hear you Hardtack. I was obviously meaning I can't remember ever winning at either Hobart or Sydney venues, whereas as I have seen all recent wins in Adelaide and that could continue hopefully.
  7. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    No Hobart and no Sydney - Swans and GWS both in Melb. That balances some of the other bad news well IMO.
  8. Peter Jackson on SEN 24/10/17

    He was stronger than the above on Watts. He said only 1 club interested, then followed up with "...that tells you something..."
  9. Well done to FD on our 2017 trade week

    Seriously? . 1 team wanted watts. Geelong lost interest. What does that tell us.? Good call by the club.
  10. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    yes it does. and I agree, but the issue for me is the " what if..." The club clearly have a strong view on list quality which I agree with. No finals next year will be a bigger disaster than 2017
  11. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    And the sky might fall too. Confusing post. We have a great list , and strong backlines win flags, but "...if we finish bottom 4..."
  12. Mahoney, get away

    Agree. Terry Wallace did an excellent review on SEN late today describing the whole points process of draft positions values and methodically worked through the Lever deal. A good deal both teams in his opinion. Further he emphasised the view that this rounds out what a finals list now looks like. The club have the faith from hereon. Mahoney and recruiters know what they are doing.
  13. Rd 1 Team with Lever

    Bingo - ish! But what does this say about depth too , missing ABrayshaw, AVDB, Maynard, Hannan ?
  14. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

    A really sensible post and an insight into Mahoney's thinking. As said earlier, they are backing in the talent there now, topping up, allowing Tom Mac flexibility and saying again - destination club.. This stat from MikeAlpha says we have pro rata 4 times as many good Under 22's than we should on average. Mission accomplished. Beating yourselves up over picks or whatever is meaningless and not how business gets done in real life. A key message there I reckon.
  15. Good Win? ... I don't know...

    A terrific article. Thanks RPFC. But as an aside, I hark back to Goodwin's press conference after the Carlton game when he spoke brilliantly and with feeling about his thoughts on culture and what he expects. I think he has what we need, and will develop.
