    Round 10 Non MFC games

    😂😂 Quite obviously GW$$$$ and Carlton need to share the first ten picks this draft.

    Port Melbourne v Casey Demons - Round 8

    Thanks for the summation Drunkn and to you and others for their reports on all Casey games. A few specific queries when you get a moment. Petty - how is he developing, what role is he playing and is he close to a call up? If so whose spot would he be competing for? Baker - same questions and how is his pace you mentioned some runs. Were these runs based on super pace or evasiveness and reading the play? Balic - is he a HFF FP type or can you compare him with anyone in the seniors? How is his pace? Smith - last year started on fire as a HBF type until Riewoldt did his shoulder. He hasn’t seemed (from reports) to have regained any of that form. What is his current role? Does he appear to have made a full physical recovery? Has he recovered mentally? Thanks so much

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    Easton Wood also was always referred to in full ...... maybe the morons in the commentary box think he has a hyphen.

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    Yeah. It got that big log off last night, though he does come from the same team as the one man MRP so no real surprise.

    Port Melbourne v Casey Demons - Round 8

    There are thousands of ex AFL players and I would put little faith on what 99.9% of them say

    Port Melbourne v Casey Demons - Round 8

    Haven’t read all the posts but not sure that it is player hate rather than form hate. I doubt if any of us want him to fail or hate him; indeed if he finds his best and his disposal improves we will all be happy. Sounds like a classic Richo dummy spit. Cant see him staying on the list as he doesn’t have any special tricks which a small player in particular needs. (And as one can see from my faves list he has been one of mine)

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    Just looked at the Carlisle Riewoldt hit Cant argue against high contact, high impact and at very least reckless Wonder which way Christian’s roulette wheel will spin on this one

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    Remind me which team did Mr Christian play for. This was always going to happen. So I take it Your Lordship that you are not an alias of Broooose McIvaney. And I agree, a dirty dog and not a defender’s #$&@$#&

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    In fairness they also had to play well enough to squeeze into the 8 first (which we haven’t done forever and a day) But yes, a manic finals campaign and Murphy aside a good injury run.

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    FMD Footscray played like dogs in the third quarter. How did they ever win a flag. PS and the fourth has started even worse for them.

    Bye After a Darwin Game?

    The big difference is the climate, not the travel time .... but then as you. say the AFL would argue only the one point.

    Bye After a Darwin Game?

    IF there was a skerrick of integrity and even handedness at AFL HQ both teams involved in games at Darwin (or Cairns for that matter) would get a bye the following week, so ............

    Round 10 Non MFC games

    Surely the lower placed team winning would always be to our advantage - then it is entirely up to us to keep winning In the first 5 minutes maggots have put themselves in the line of fire at least twice. Now they have been declared sacrosanct (most of the time anyway) they seem to think that players should avoid them without taking any personal responsibility

    Wallace Urges Adelaide to Target Lever

    Did he have that annoying squeak (beautifully described by Wadda We Sing) before or do we have Rod Grinter to thank for that?

    Carey Laid Stevens?
  16. Pardon my ignorance but can someone clarify what exactly is the status of a cat B rookie? Are they totally ours or do they still need to go through the draft in some way?

    Tom McDonald sent for Scans (24/5)

    Added pace, no foot problems, and of course a pretty straight shooter.

    Injury List - Season 2018

    Probably, only as a result of injury, has close to zero trade* value. If fit would give him another year to prove himself again; there are a few ahead of him I would delist. * what is his contract status?

    Etihad to be renamed Marvel Stadium

    Is that Tom and Oscar?

    Need to smash pies and dogs regardless of this result. Carlton were cocky (a) because they are Carlton and (b) they were coming off one on the trot

    Etihad to be renamed Marvel Stadium

    I prefer the MCG! Sadly renaming the soulless concrete box will not make it any more welcoming, nor the viewing any better. Can’t polish a turd.

    Last 2 Minutes: 88 Elimination Final

    I remember the excitement, sitting in the upper deck behind the goal when GL3 snapped what we thought was the sealer, followed by the terror of that last thrust forward by WCE. Cant remember quite when but Alan Johnson kicked a lifting goal earlier in the game. Horribly wet and pretty cold at old arctic park
  24. Not really much of a gamble at all — all potential gain virtually cost and risk free.
