  1. Bugg

    He has no depth in his kicking and should not be in the team He misses too may getable shots as well.
  2. Clarry better start than Judd?

    Statistics can be read many different ways but the distance the ball travels from hand and foot can also be misleading the other statistic and probably more important is the scoring assists and efficiency of disposal for instance a player who handballs to another play 10 meters away he kicks the ball 50 meters to another player on your side is better than a 60 meter kick which goes to the opposite team. They are both good players but one has been measured on his whole career whilst the other has not even played 3 full season but has won the best and fairest at his club in his second season, when did Judd win the best and fairest of West Coast?
  3. Neale Daniher regressing with MND?

    Hawking had ALS which is a different disease and I have a friend who has MND and he says Neale is doing ok because he has lasted over 5 years.
  4. Sponsorship Problem?

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

    They should try to get the largest Melbourne based company BHP
  6. 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.

    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
  8. 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.

    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?
  10. 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.
  11. Decoding the draft

    "We got who we wanted" means "Player we expect to get at that pick was gone"
  12. 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.
