    Run home to Finals - 2018

    Just remember Geelong starts with a five goal umpire advantage which consists of two dubious frees in front for the Cats and three not awarded to us. It’s a rabid atmosphere there

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    Sorry someone gots to say it Isn’t it amazing how a team full of players who don’t deserve a game because they are VFL standard are now completely in control Maybe they’ve all had what BC had at half time in that GF

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    Last week the Mutts were competitive until half time and then completely and utterly destroyed by Hawthorn in the second half put your money on Melb 40+ (😕)

    What a strange game we had it won inside 15 minutes in the first. so we relaxed and let them back into it. The umpires seemed to me initially to be on a mission not to allow the brand not to be embarrassed, but then unashamedly pursued a reversal of the natural order agenda as a brand-enhancing upset became a possibility. You do seriously have to question whether there is any accountability for the absurd decisions that seem to be being served up to us weekly because our club is regarded as polite and therefore accepting of whatever shisen is dealt out to us.This sadly just won’t happen to a power club and I suggest this more out of sorrow than anger. Was there any examination of that Melksham free last week? (I don’t know - I’m asking) I understand that the game is a difficult one to umpire but there have been so many examples of umpires bending to the will of crowd pressure (not saying that was today but) and making crucial mistakes that surely it’s time for this to be front and centre for public discussion I actually was disgusted today at the frees ignored, overlooked and not awarded to MFC but awarded each and every time to St Kilda Back to the first point, the killer instinct that we displayed against Adelaide seems to have evaporated into the ether

    Sorry BB we didn’t go there and he wasn’t giving free advice to the peasants - possibly would have if asked. He might also have said that we had had a bad day

    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    Going home on the tram after the game on Saturday, my wife and I started chatting with a guy about my age, with his brother. Friendly bloke, interested in the game and like us, a bit subdued about the day. I commented to him that the game reminded me of one in the Peter Daicos era, early nineties , one to which we had dragged all five of our children and with the same thing happening outplayed, outscored and the icing on the cake as we walked up the aisle afterwards was to have Collingwood supporters looking down on us yelling ‘it’s like having all your worst nightmares come true innit ?’ This chap in the tram said ‘ I remember that game I was the coach ‘ He offered me a selfie and a Kleenex Thanks John Northey - a real gentleman and a pleasure to talk to. Just wish we could have met under different circumstances .......

    Round 12 Non-MFC

    What we need is a third umpire review system for general run of play decisions

    Changes v The Blues

    We need to start thinking outside the box the Rules of The Game Committee has already come up with numerous interesting changes to the game and it’s time they considered 19 players on the field to make the spectacle better
