  1. Provided he performs to an acceptable level this year he will play in the one's otherwise he will be playing at Casey. I have followed the MFC since 1952 and I have seen great sides but the potential of these players exceeds the 1954-1964 teams although teams don't always play on potential. The 1953 team was a young team which had great potential and turned into the greatest era of the MFC hopefully this team will play with the more fire and passion and convert the potential to the ultimate success in the 2019 season and beyond.

    Supporters of opposition clubs always use some way to justify their club allowing players to go. Bomber supporters said the same about Melksham to feel good about their team letting a player go.

    Casey Demons: 2019

    For those who were not around when the great Norm Smith was coach he believed the best small defenders were midfielders who had run their course in midfield. When MFC recruited Stuart Spencer as a back pocket player he stated to Stuart he was too young to play there and he made him a rover who became on of the AFL's great rovers.

    My Grandson who is 7 ran a 2K in cross country in 8 minutes 54 seconds so it must have been the time of the day.

    I hope you all realize Bradtke is very young and has not played football for at least 3 years otherwise he could not be selected a Rookie B. He will be developed by some of the best development coaches. He played a non contact sport so he will take time to adjust. So right now we cannot judge players like Bradtke until he has played at least 3 seasons of football, James Harmes was judged by many on this site to be taking up space on the list not so long ago. We all should just enjoy the journey to a possible Premiership and not heap praise or barbs along the way. I hope we can win one for all the MFC players and coaches both past and present to enjoy the moment of pure joy.

    WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - TOBY BEDFORD

    I read somewhere that Toby would go around 40-50 in the draft?
  9. I hope he is as good as the other pick 53 we have on our list?
  10. Maybe we can call him Captain Jack

    Players like Gawn and Preuss are midfielders so Bailey Williams may be considered a midfielder?

    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.

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