    The Joel Smith idea is the only reason I can see for the selection/defence structure. Westoff was fantastic last week and I suspect will win it for them tonight, as one tall too many. Tyson is a good inclusion if he plays inside.

    GAMEDAY - Round 14

    Agree. I think goodwin will play tyson where he excels. On inside as shown in vfl and huge risk tonight if this is not turned around. I just hope he has the backline sorted. I watched frost play a great game last year at adelaide. May rue his non selection tonight.

    Wines: Dees Midfield Best

    Sorry Dox. My mistake. On the same wavelength though.

    Wines: Dees Midfield Best

    Why on earth do you think that won't happen. History tells us otherwise.

    Wines: Dees Midfield Best

    I feel the pain. haven't they learned to keep the heads down before big games. Think Petracca and Gawn on The Footy Show. Someone else just posted this the otgher day about instituting a media blackout. Viney on last night's Footy Show - Result - We're gone for sure tomorrow night!

    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.

    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.

    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 .

    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.

    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 .

    Peter Jackson's Replacement?

    Chairman Glenn Bartlett is former Managing Partner of Australia toughest Tier 1 legal firm Clayton Utz. I reckon he'll have Gill covered.

    Tom McDonald Re-Signs for 4 Years

    Bif day for the marketing Dept. AND the recruiting team. The sales pitch now to Gaff, Wines or anyone else of quality can be: "... how would you like to kick the ball into a Hogan/TMac forward line..." Sign here!
  23. Give him a break. Kane Cornes tips Dees for the premiership and re-confirmed last Friday again before the dogs game on his SEN show.

    Changes v Collingwood

    No-one seems to be talking about Joel Smith lately in these threads. Can anyone advise thoughts on him as an option?
