  1. Sponsorship Problem?

    I think the club could sell the back of the shorts to a sponsor for a large sum?
  2. Sponsorship Problem?

    They should try to get the largest Melbourne based company BHP
  3. Rare Robbie Flower Highlights

    If only he had been born to play with the 1950's MFC he would have won 3 Brownlows and had 7 premierships to his name.
  4. Friday in the Rain

    I went to the MFC web site and there is no No 27, maybe you should refresh the copy of the MFC web site which is stored by IE
  5. Passing on Stefan Giro

    List Size For 2013, all clubs (*except Gold Coast and GWS Giants) now operate under the following list sizes. Primary List Size Category A Rookies Category BRookies Total Rookies (Maximum) Total 38 (Minimum) 6 3 9 47 39 5 3 8 47 40 (Maximum) 4 3 7 47 * Gold Coast Suns: Primary List 42; Rookie List 9 * GWS Giants: Primary List 44-50; Rookie List 9 This is from the AFL web site melbourne have 40 on the main list and 4 rookies unless stefan has not played AFL for at least 3 years in any form then he is eligible for the rookie B list otherwise there is no room.
  6. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - HARRISON PETTY

    Some judges have him at selection 22 are they right? If so we did well at 36 to get him we have to back our Football Department who will never get it right 100% of the time. The Football Department will always have a comparisons like Parish / Oliver and Curnow /Weideman where their judgement is dependent on who has the final say in the selection?
  7. Probably 30 years ago a player who was less than 178 cm (5 foot 10 inches) and less than 78 kg would not get a look in at AFL clubs because they were considered to be too small but last 2 years the mindset has changed by coaches and smaller players who put on tackle pressure and dispose of the ball well have become the norm not the exception. Both Richmond and Western Bulldogs have created the current trend with smaller quick players playing a roll in the forward line where tackling pressure has allow the ball to remain in the forward half putting pressure on the defenders to make mistakes which result in scoring opportunities. I am not saying Spargo will make it or not but the Football Department has selected him and we should back their judgement for the time being before criticizing them. If you were told that Charlie Spargo was a top 5 - 10 selection before you knew how tall he was you would compliment the Football Department on their astute selection.
  8. Decoding the draft

    "We got who we wanted" means "Player we expect to get at that pick was gone"
  9. Liam Ryan

    Smith will be upgraded with a pick 64 beyond 47 which we still have. We will be drafting 4 players along with Smith.

  14. Delisted Free Agents

    I think if MFC was going to recruit a delisted free agent it would have done it by now?

    For 2013, all clubs (*except Gold Coast and GWS Giants) now operate under the following list sizes. Primary List Size Category A Rookies Category BRookies Total Rookies (Maximum) Total 38 (Minimum) 6 3 9 47 39 5 3 8 47 40 (Maximum) 4 3 7 47 * Gold Coast Suns: Primary List 42; Rookie List 9 * GWS Giants: Primary List 44-50; Rookie List 9 So that all arguments re-list sizes I have extracted the above from the AFL web site the Suns and Giants now operate under the same rules as all the other AFL teams? There's 36 on the list now including Smith. Plus 4 draft picks makes 40. Plus 4 Rookies makes 44. Yes we will be able to recruit 3 Category B rookies. If a player has played a sport other than Australian Rules in the last 3 years then they are eligible to be listed on the Category B rookies list like the international converts and basketball players but category B players cannot play unless a player on the main list is placed on the Long Term Injury list. Whereas 1 Category A rookies can be nominated after round 11.
