    Gary Pert?

    2 weeks today. Monday 17th Dec . 6.30 start in MCC Members dining Room. Worth going to to hear Pert. (and Goodwin obviously)

    Contract Extension Looms for Goodwin

    I wonder if its planned to announce at or just prior to AGM on 17th December? Hope so.

    Age Ladder

    Brilliant comment. If you take Lewis out of the team, MFC drop to last or second last in games experience. Every team has outliers, but in Dees case this is more pertinent given Lewis was drafted only a couple of years ago at a late age. Similar impact on av. age too. This table then has a scary upside from the Dees for rest of comp.

    Peak Petracca

    I agree with above. Watching the 2 mcg finals we saw trac exude class and make serious impacts. Not for full games but his huge upside was on display. Key mid size forward is his future and best value

    5th Consecutive Profit

    $1/4 mill buys a fair bit of precinct master planning and options development with costings. Serious investment at this early stage but gets the ball rolling.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 36 Jeff Garlett

    Re-watching the Cats and hawks finals show excellent examples by young Spargo on how a small forward should lay tackles. Cyril had it as well. Jeff Garlett is a long way off this standard in 2018 season IMO

    2019 Ladder Predictions

    I dont believe there will be a drop off. The dees are now made up of hard competitive youngsters with a smattering of maturity that don't take backward steps. They know how good they can be . Witness killer performances in the first 2 finals. Those earlier teams were flaky at times with substanard on field leadership. Not so now. Viney olivet gawn etc won't allow it.

    What’s the go with Essendrug?

    He employs researchers and is fed the stats during the game BTW. My gripe is he just won't shut up. Having watched replays numerous times of the cats and hawks finals its nauseating.

    2019 Fixture

    Having worked and lived in both devonport and launceston, the answer is NONE or very little. Its just a day out is the way the locals tell me. The crowds in Hobart tell the same story. The hawks and Roos are only over there for the cash, and in the Hawks (or "family club") case means they don't have to have even more pokies than they already have sucking $20M out of problem gamblers and the community.

    Goodwin also talks about challenges, lots of 6 day breaks, travel etc. He will just be taking this approach and the self belief of the team will do the rest.

    2019 Fixture

    A lift of 5K in new memberships will help cover this shortfall for 2019 thanks to 2018 efforts. 2020 then with both games at Home could be a bonanza year commercially.

    2019 Fixture

    Supporters of ALL other teams will be looking at this draw and fearing the game against the Dees next year. Incl the Cats at GMHBA. And in 2018 the team show great efforts on the road - this will hold no fears for them in 2019

    2019 Fixture

    The real story here is the AFL scheduling a train wreck for the opening game. It will kill the Blues season from Day 1. I can hear the post mortem now; "...what were they thinking..."

    2019 Fixture

    I think there's an upside to having Game 1 at th G for membership sales at the ground, rather than Dees playing there in Round 2 for the first MCG game

    Wallace Rates Dees Trade Period

    Didn't he watch the finals series this year and see how the Eagles unlocked the secret to beat/neutralise 1 big key ruckman (Gawn and Grundy). Great forward thinking by Mahoney and co with Preuss. This also guarantees we will be watching Big Max as a 34 year old too running around.
