  1. Trade rumours

    I won't be surprised if Hogan leaves. Why would I be? I am a melbourne member and am used to these sorts of things. I will however be extremely sad. I am excited by the likes of him, trac, Brayshaw, Viney and others forming the nucleus of a side for a long time. my odds of him leaving, 65%.... (hope I am wrong).
  2. The Big Dance - Grand Final Day, 2017

    Just feel like we were not far off it. We had injuries, and we dropped some early games which are hard to justify. If not for those two things we would have been in it dor top 4 position and maybe a chance to build momentum to a decent run in finals.
  3. Trade rumours

    I reckon Hogan is definitely NOT a sure thing to stay. if he left, what we got in return would need to be evaluated before i could go crazy. i won't be shocked if it does happen.
  4. 2017 Post Mortem

    Just so very Melbourne..... shattered. Not sure when I will or come close to letting the frustration go....
  5. Round 23 Non MFC Games

    Port to overtake swans on %? if Tigers win well, They could overtake giants on %? swans finish 6th....port finish 5th....if we make it play them in Adelaide?
  6. Post Match Discussion - Round 23

    I hate reading predictions of easy wins on this site. Can't remember a game I have been to where I felt assured that we would take care of business, too many times I have been let down. Without dissecting the game in detail, I do wish we had a player like Travis Boak or Callum Ward. Leaders, hard, ruthless. Jones and Viney are great, but we need more. Feel flat tonight. Hoping we make finals but expecting we won't (just my fear)
  7. Round 22 - Non MFC Games

    Is a draw a good outcome?!
  8. Round 20 - Non MFC Matches

    Hawks loss is good for us. Another one removed from the race. St K winning is good for us IF we can win next week. Achieve that, and the odds will drastically improve for a finals campaign in 2017. Lose and we are cooked.
  9. Looking ahead ... the Path to September

    Looks like there are 2 spots in the 8 that 5 teams could claim (Saints, Dogs, WC, Dees and Dons - maybe Hawthorn too...if they beat Richmond today....??!!) Bulldogs have giants next week. Essendon have Adelaide. Saints have us. WC then have giants following week. Dogs have port. Then dogs have hawks in last round, saints have Richmond and WC have adelaide. if we win next week we should really be right in it and looking ok. Is there any chance 2 wins will be enough?

    It's because I love the club that I feel so unloved right now. The loss to North hurt so much. But I stupidly thought we may sneak today. How stupid. I feel let down over and over again! The magnitude of where we sit has really hit home. I feel defeated but will be at the game next week hoping and praying I have it wrong. The off season is going to hurt like hell if we don't make finals. No matter what anyone says about improvement and injury, from where we were a fortnight ago, finals were in our hands. They still are, but only just. Win all games and we should make it. Lose one and were cooked. Surprise me Demons. But this time make it on the upside please.
  11. GAMEDAY - Round 14

    Just about keeled over due to stress. so bloody happy right now.
  12. Round 13 - Non MFC games

    What's interesting is that we should have three teams from last years 8 not make it this year North, Hawks and Swans..... will we take one of those three places?
  13. Round 22 - Around the Grounds

    Was just looking at the round next week. Is there any circumstance (assuming we win) that the GWS match is of no consequence to them? Am I right in saying that Hawks playing last match will ensure this won't happen.
  14. Around The Grounds - ROUND 21

    We want Geelong to win today don't we? Just to give the best chance of them having locked up a top 4 spot pre our game?
