  1. It does so regularly during the season on footy matters, so why not now (devil's advocate). So, even unsubstantiated charges, ie no conviction, should result in sacking?? Dangerous grounds there in terms of unfair / illegal dismissal, besmirching character etc.
  2. Will Jack Watts make us pay thread?

    If he achieves success, and if he performs harder at Port than he did with us, then it would at least say something about his lack of commitment to MFC. He could have with greater sustained effort (if he is really that good) turned around at least 3-4 goals over the entire season 2017 which would have seen us in finals (and probably not in Bali ) later in September.
  3. To both of the posters above -- as far as we are all aware, this is as of today, an allegation, as of today totally unsubstantiated. Not even in the hands of any police force......no investigation......no charges..........no hearing. How about waiting and watching without pre-judging?
  4. Nothing to do with luck - all to do with choking and lack of application.
  5. At the risk of sounding like a lawyer, this is at the moment an allegation, not a fact.
  6. Behold your 2018 Midfield

    Still? Presumably now under regular specialist endocrinologist supervision.
  7. Yet to debut . . .

    So if he does make it then he will be all the stronger.

    OMG - the cat is out of the bag. Opposition opposition watchers will be all over this totally surprising piece of information. So much so that if we miss out on the flag it will be on your head, Satryi Maybe, but rarely are all things equal EDIT - in fact never! A couple of new Port players say "hi"! Nevertheless, his best standard is quite lofty: I am sure JV was disappointed at not reaching his heights, but clearly those who matter (plus myself for one) feel even below his best he is still better than the next option. That, surely, is the thought process at selection.
  9. Port Closer than Dees to a Flag says Jack Watts

    Time to move on picket Whatever happens with the Js and Port, we now have a list which we can enjoy watching. IF OUR success or failure depends on the movement of one very talented player whose application did not meet the expectations of our footy department, then the whole structure remains moot. I, for one, want to look forward, not backwards or sideways.
  10. Harley Balic is settling in nicely.

    It may in fact have been another contributing factor in his desire to leave.
  11. Harley Balic is settling in nicely.

    Political? Or are you referring to political correctness?
  12. Harley Balic is settling in nicely.

    Now that is something to really get excited about. SWYL - do you know for a fact that he wasn't? Our club now plays their cards close to the chest, unless it suits them to do otherwise eg with the Watts trade offer.

    Great post Ernest. Hope all read it.....and understand it Good news, though the usual skeptics will call it all a big bad medical error if he doesn’t win the Bluey and the DownLow.

    Many would probably prefer Weid over Pedo, if and when he is ready, but I agree with those who think ‘gifting’ him games early 2017 was a mistake and may have cost us a game or so, thus finals. I hold out high hopes for him.

    I think some here just can’t resist having a go at Oscar. He / him......presumably referring to Salem?
