    That's good to know. Do they like you?
  2. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    Those of us who remember the Truth newspaper know that it was a shocker. But it's hardly surprising when you read this entry in Wikipedia about its proprietor, John Norton. And we think the politicians of today leave something to be desired! (It will take 5-10 minutes to read the entry...but it's worth it. Particularly the reference to his "performance" in the NSW Parliament.)
  3. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    And has the added advantage of being directly relevant to the Melbourne Football Club thereby bringing this thread back on track.
  4. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    You weren't working in this place, were you? Greatest headline ever. Bar none.
  5. Preseason Training - Week commencing 11/12/17

    Based on other comments on Demonland in the last week or so, I would have thought it's a straight swap with Jordan Lewis.
  6. Max King back at Melbourne

    As well as compensating for the lack of father-son options, I seem to recall that all four NSW and Qld clubs are allowed academies to encourage locals with a view to boosting the stock of draftable NSW and Qld kids. This is not just about getting more locals into the side for the sake of it but also to hep overcome the "go home" factor which has been really problematic for the northern states.

    Um, I don't mean to be picky, but on 11 December you've posted that the Women's training will be on 9 December. Something's amiss (pun intended).

    The Northern State academies were also created to compensate GWS and Gold Coast for the perceived unfairness of older clubs having access to father-son prospects which the Giants and the Suns won't have for the foreseeable future.
  9. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    Not quite. The owners of SEN (and some other media assets) is the ASX listed Pacific Star Network. A couple of weeks ago Pacific Star Network announced that it had formed some sort of agreement with Croc Media (a joint venture maybe?) and that Craig Hutcheson would be the new CEO. I'm not sure if that deal has closed or whether Hutcheson has taken up the CEO role yet. The end of the Schwarz and Marco show may or may not be unrelated to the changes. However, as annoying as some people find him on air, Hutcheson clearly has an eye for sports media and appears to have been very successful growing Croc Media over the last 10 years.
  10. Harley Balic is settling in nicely.

    Can you expand on this? Why does Watts' departure lead, in your view, to an expectation that the midfield will be more attacking? I don't understand where you're coming from.
  11. Sponsorship Problem?

    Serious question: Did being a MFC member give you any benefits when buying the car? (such as price discount, cut-price servicing, etc)
  12. Harley Balic is settling in nicely.

    Why? What's that got to do with how he plays football? If you were saying that about a player who is homesick, I'd understand it, but now that he's home and that potentially depressive scenario has been removed, why is it now a concern?
  13. Sponsorship Problem?

    Fair point. Do they operate any retail brands? I note, also, that as far as I can tell, AHG didn't market to end users and quite frankly, I couldn't see what value sponsorship had for them either.
  14. Preseason Training - Week commencing 4/12/17

    I think non-contact might be more appropriate. Possibly even enforced by a Court order.
