  1. Training 19/4

    Re Max and hot outs: as I recall in his AA year, Jamar won a squillion hit ours but only a small handful resulted in clearances. This is a huge part of the game we need to urgently learn / formulate a plan to use to our advantage. It requires teamwork in the mids and wings.
  2. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    Stormy - why is that more odd? Wouldnt trust the AFL one inch ...... rigged fixture, or rather fixed ire, just for starters.
  3. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    All the focus was on whether it was touched or not: I wondered if it actually after that brushed on the shin of a Swan closer to goal? Didn't seem to review that.
  4. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    The deliberate OOB decisions are even more embarrassing.
  5. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    Are Adelaide missing our #8, or is Dooday covering him well?
  6. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    Great high pressure contest Good to watch - pity about the commentary team
  7. Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 5

    Jordan McMahon? That would be double the number of quarters that our entire team played last week 😡
  8. Where to play TMac?

    Neither Weed nor Lever should be playing with someone tutoring them. Weed should not play until he is ready to stand on his own two feet, then probably as a deep forward with ruck duties. I remain optimistic about him. As for Tom, I like him as a CHF with huge endurance and strength. Also a very handy ruck option. As an aside, just a passing thought - could Weed benefit from time at CHB (at Casey). Our most succesful FF started as a CHB.
  9. Flat Track Bullies?

    Definitely not flat track bullies since we haven’t been able to bully anyone, even Kangaroos or Bears.

  11. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    Some of these play on calls are just ludicrous And on the other side of the argument, how can Frankenstein be allowed to play on whilst the umpire is setting the mark not allowing the man on the mark to stop him?
  12. Shepherding the man on the mark

    Sounds a good ploy. At least worth a try. But even as it stands, if the shepherding player is over 5 meters from the ball he should be penalized, as happens is some marking contests (again inconsistency umpired).
  13. Training 19/4

    Are you suggesting that Lever May be asked to play an accountable defensive rôle? That would be interesting. Do you have any inside knowledge or is it the understandable pessimism resultant upon years of following MFC?
  14. Breaking down the 15 goals to 1

    Can someone please tell me when he has made even one successful tactical move from the box in a match? To mee it seems like stubbornness - ND showed the same traits much of the time. Or maybe arrogance - "I cant be wrong, surely" * certainly should but would remains to be seen # CAN - yet to be proven IMO
  15. Why Melbourne Can't Be Trusted

    Redleg - keep a close eye on the 'jobs vacant' an when the MFC defensive coach position comes up please take it. Use this posting as your reference. Pity the current incumbent (and the defensive on field 'leaders') cant see something so blatantly obvious.
