    New CEO - Gary Pert

    Bartlett actually said: "... PROCESS has been going for quite a few weeks..." Not that Pert applied a few weeks ago. Didn't say "..short time...". Just that he achieved a lot in his time there, which he did, especially with where the Board wants to take the club. Very little discussion on it, except Bartlett refereed , as SF says, a non-leaking Board. As if to say the ' experts' were bind sided by appointment and a bit miffed they were not in the loop - that's you Damien Barrett.(who has no idea IMO) What does concern me is the constant sniping by John Rothfield on the non-transparency of the process. Dr. Turf needs to understand its confidentiality that' s most important and on Monday's Footy Classified, Chris Judd gave an excellent summary of his well sourced knowledge of what happened. Worth a listen, taking it up to Barrett.

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    Really good post. The fugazi will be coming from media and others who have no experience and or idea how CEO's are appointed under these circumstances, and the probity issues required. FUGAZI !!!!!!!!!!!!! Move on .

    Watts Dropped from Port

    This post isn't to gloat and i wish Watts well. Just that watching him last week, even in a winning team, I thought I saw exactly what he delivered to MFC. No aggression, slipped tackles and falling over. Not surprised at this selection decison by Power. Unfortunate for him, but early validation of MFC call last year.

    We could miss finals with 13 wins

    Anzac Eve DOES count last year. We were 13 points up at 3/4 time with no bench players left. Were always going to run out of legs. A good effort in the circumstances. QB was an heroic effort as well on a big stage down to the wire. The games were are meant to win have usually been disasters, up to last year. This years 6 game streak now shows major mindset improvement.

    Changes v Port

    Did anyone else notice in the 2nd 1/4 at a centre bounce about the 10 minute markish Jack V gesticulating to T Mac and pointing to the goals which looked like a bake to TMAc about why he didn't kick forward instead of passing off. Waiting for the re-bounce after the scrum Tmac gave it back to jack. Was interesting.

    Changes v Port

    Sitting near the bench on Monday I was close up to a couple of good things Spargo did, getting into trouble, getting out, and seemingly keeping a cool head. That small passage of play sold me in the kid. Although he's been playing like that earlier also.

    Changes v Port

    Exactly. We felt at the game from first bounce they were ' on'. And their outside run showed us up for pace and the rest followed. I was impressed we got back into it after a bad first 1/4. but weaknesses exposed gives Goodwin something to work on for second 1/2. Better now . The pies are the real thing and wer'e not as good as we think.

    Petracca in a rut?

    Smart post. McGuire has done this before; Introducing him as a "...Superstar..." Really? I have felt he has been overrated all year and was showed up in endeavour by Joel Smith, spargo in tight spots , and a few others. I'm not sure what his tricks/strengths are either. Seriously worried if he can make it.

    Tom McDonald Re-Signs for 4 Years

    Can someone put up a link to this. It was insightful and amusing at the same time. Garry Lyon nearly"... fell off his bike..." when he heard the new yesterday, so happy was he!

    Slobbo's Mid Year All Australian

    Correct. Close this thread for irrelevancy. It about New Ltd. causing outrage so we all talk about them. Lets deny our oxygen. And of course Grundy is in - he's Collingwood, the papers main reading audience to whom this team is targeted .
