    Best of 3 Grand Final

    When will they get the time to play the best of 3 since most grounds have cricket wickets with drop in pitches which require time to prepare pitches to play on.

    Lyon's Plea to Petracca: Be Like Max

    Lewis defended himself in 2003, claiming that he had accidentally consumed the banned substances for the 1988 Olympics. After the supplements that he had taken were analyzed to prove his claims, the USOC accepted his claim of inadvertent use, since a dietary supplement he ingested was found to contain "Ma huang", the Chinese name for ephedrine is known to help weight loss. The highest level of the stimulants Lewis recorded was 6 ppm, which was regarded as a positive test in 1988 but is now regarded as negative test. His sayings are always true even if you believe he took drugs to enhance 1988 performances at the the US Olympic trials not at the Olympics.

    Lyon's Plea to Petracca: Be Like Max

    I watch Garry Lyon train in the old days and he never pushed himself either so he knows what a waste of talent is when you think you can just turn up and perform. One of the great athletes of all time Carl Lewis used to have a saying 'when you are number 1 you have to train like number 2' also Jesse Owens had a saying 'that people say I am lucky but the harder I train the luckier I get' the saying's are basically true but lazy sportsmen blame other things for their failure to get to the top of the heap.

    PICKS # 23 & 28

    The usual criteria is draft the best available but if it come down to 2 then draft for needs first.

    Daniel Menzel

    Reading the Sun article he was instructed to play on the fat side of the ground giving him very little scope to tackle so he played the opportunistic football. It also mentioned that 5 clubs were interested in his services and eliminated St Kilda and Brisbane. I for one think he is a very good footballer but the recruiters and Goodwin have to make that decision not us. Garlett has lost his way due to family problems? If he could find his mojo back then he will regain his spot in the 22 and help us win the ultimate prize in the AFL.

    How many tackles does Hawkins make in a year, in fact other than a select few their tackling was poor at Geelong since they let Chapman, Bartel and Ling go without replacing them.

    Wallace Rates Dees Trade Period

    I think the MFC has done well and added some mongrel to a hard at side with May and Pruess, I think that hard at mongrel was part of the reason Hawthorn was such a good side during their premiership years.

    Wallace Rates Dees Trade Period

    I thought when he was the Richmond Coach he overlooked Franklin, so why would anybody rate his opinion re-recruiting

    May will play better football without the responsibility of being the Captain I believe he will blossom without it since he wont feel the pressure of trying to do something special to lift the team. Teams rarely make Full Backs Captain.

    Andrew Brayshaw

    I think the MFC recruiters had miss givings about Gaff after the incident with Andrew and what effect it may have on Angus, if they recruited Gaff. A happy team is a good team
  12. The player who could be a key forward is Petracca who could do what Jakovich did in the 90's with Preuss in the pocket al la Bob Johnson or Mason Cox. Play him 1 on 1 in the goal square and he could be a sensation

    2019 best 22 and depth chart

    I looked at the players starting in the center square for MFC during the finals not 1 player had played 100 games with Jones and Tyson playing on the wings, I know Gawn played 99 and Viney played 98 but the players like Harmes, Oliver and Brayshaw had played between 55 and 70 games. It is believed that a team needs about 10-15 players over 100 games to win a premiership although WB probably were the exception.
  14. I forgot Xavier Ellis
  15. I have never seen so many Xavier's since Xavier Tanner.
