    No doubt the Christians will stick together “nothing to see here”!

    Round 13 Non - MFC Games

    Neck and neck race between Richardson and Bolton. Buckley after the (hopefully) late season choke 🙄??

    How about midnight Sunday without the lights? Couldn’t be less appealing

    The Game, the Press and the future

    The only “zoning” I could be comfortable with would be requiring all players other than centre square four, and two wingers, being inside the 50 meter arc at the start of quarters and after goals. No mark for backward kicks other than from inside forward 50 arc could reduce the frustrating time wasting clock running especially late in games, and force more attacking thrusts. No mark paid to the defending team at the kick out after a behind until the ball clears the 50 arc could provide more contests. And definitely only a perfectly executed tackle should ever result in a HTB free, thus encouraging and rewarding the guy who goes in and gets the ball. The stacks on the mill crushing the guy who goes in and gets it rewarding the vultures is a source of anger and frustration to me and others.

    Petracca in a rut?

    I guess were it actually relevant to my work, as it is with Petracca, then I would say yes. The brakes need to break.

    Round 13 Non - MFC Games

    Bloody hell the umpires love Frankenstein Last three minutes of third Q - the first a dive that would make the Tiger “world best ever defender” Prancer look an honest man, followed by another real softie

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    No Mr Neeld, we didn't. Do you mean like Malthouse at Carlton? :-( Interesting the wide diversity of opinions here, from disgust to ecstasy. Don't know really what to think, though presumably Peter Jackson has endorsed the appointment, which would give me some confidence.

    Dean Kent on the move... ?

    ^^^????? Does anyone have information as to how many times and how many weeks has he missed through hamstring injuries? Are they the same side? (I know he also missed with a shoulder, but have there been other injuries too?) At his best he is a valuable contributor, but I find it hard to think of him as a reliable half forward, and he seems miles away from becoming a midfielder.

    Playing with no ACL??

    Maybe Webber could enlighten us, but I think I heard that one may get by in straight line running but twisting and turning as in Aussie Rules it is not on.

    Bex (compound analgesic) Bex was a strong compound analgesic which was popular in Australia for much of the twentieth century. It came in the form of APC (aspirin–phenacetin–caffeine) tablets or powder, containing 42% aspirin, 42% phenacetin, plus caffeine. The phenacitan was an anti-inflammatory as I recall that killed off kidneys (and thus sometimes their owners) and was banned maybe in the 1960s

    Watts Dropped from Port

    Being rested to be fresh to take us apart.

    Jack Watts was instrumental in our win last year so surely it was his fault for not being there. Unless we actually win the flag there will be some who will harp on about this. Even then if we win by 10 goals they will say we would have won by 20 had we been to camp. I see they are resting J.W. to be fresh for us

    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    Just a pedantic moment: Pedersen was not really playing as a key forward but rather as a third tall with ruck duties. And I agree that Weideman played the role better than Peds did on Monday, and is the future. Harmes - yes ANB - yes Hannan- probably a bit Trac - sadly, no
