  1. Highly doubt Preuss will play. Weid will give Gawn a chop out.
  2. True, but some drugs are far more addictive than alcohol. However, not trying to diminish the damage alcohol has done to many in society
  3. Unless you are a football insider, it's impossible to say it was "fine" for 43. You don't think Watts partied with teammates when at MFC? I'm happy with the culture driven push the club now has. I'm not confident it was like that in the past, but I don't know any inside intel.
  4. More technology that will only make human judgements harder to understand
  5. Luce, none of us really know what it is like inside the MFC or AFL bubble (except Saty), so it's quite possible we share some responsibility for Hogan's current situation. I actually respect Niall's journalism and know he's well connected. He didn't claim our environment caused the problems, he wrote "if", which means that it's possible, which it is. Arguably, the same could be said for Liam Jurrah, who supposedly didn't drink before he came to our footy club. The AFL industry is littered with unfulfilled talent. The stiffs here will shout "personal responsibility!", but I've known a couple of AFL/VFL players in the past who got scant support from their club or the industry. The point of the article is that Freo has a major problem recruiting star players with issues outside of football, and there is a reason we were prepared to trade a player of Hogan's rare quality. That's a fair call.
  6. Felt oddly weird seeing Pert in demons colours
  7. @Demonland is there a chance we can have individual posts that quote posters we have on ignore also ignored? Apologies for the thread sidetrack, but I found it particulary frustrating on this thread
  8. Think they may do something to show respect re the killings in NZ. A number of other sporting codes have had min silence or black arm bands or similar
  9. I won't be holding my breath on this, but if Jeffy Garlett was to get his head right and knuckle down, he could have a 50 goal season. Has the ability to do the unbelievable, but goes missing way too often
  10. Resurrected again. After all, it's nearly Easter...
  11. If you think swapping clubs is the reason for Hogan having anxiety, then you really have no idea about mental health.
  12. Agreed. A number of years ago people would've laughed at the thought of Gawn in a leadership position. Remember the $cully China yawn?
  13. Cyril Rioli?? Hunt would be faster than Cyril Rioli in a straight line, but the rest of your sentence is not accurate. Cyril is quicker on the turn, has an amazing side step, reads the play faster than Hunt and is a much better kick, particularly under pressure. Cyril has the runs on the board over a longer career and under much bigger games too.
  14. So if Goody wanted a third tall, who would it be? Both Smiths injured, Preuss injured. Max will play 90% ruck. Keilty?
  15. Surprised he didn't pick himself to win the Norm Smith
  16. You should get a job above Jason Taylor, you're such an astute judge of talent
  17. So he's primed for the start of the season. 😆
  18. It's a reference to My Little Pony. At the time we played like kids.
  19. If your kaftan has a collar you might be right. I'd recommend giving the high heels a miss
  20. Mick thinking we are top 4 is like the tongue kiss of death
