    Injury List - Season 2019

    I think it would be remiss of any medical department to blame it completely on rotten luck. Although luck may play a small component, the current recurrence of acl's seems to be particularly high. Especially with acls that seem to be innocuous (simple change of direction) rather than a heavy knock on the knee. From the reports it seems like docherty's knee was innocuous and I would be disappointed if the Carlton medical department went through the exact same recovery program as the first time with acl's. I would be looking at increasing recovery time, building up more strength in other parts of the knee, taking mandatory breaks. This is from a completely uneducated opinion. And west coast took am extra long approach to the recovery with niknat but he still did his. Although they did say that they were planning to him breaks throughout the year which didnt seem to happen.

    Injury List - Season 2019

    Just saw docherty has done his acl again. Terrible news but I really hope we let Lever take as long and slow as necessary so something similar doesnt happen to him

    Training - Wednesday, 5th December 2018

    Honestly I think we're missing a creative small forward who can make goals out of nothing. Sure we had melksham, spargo and neal bulleen in there but garlett is the best reader of the play. Saying is he's not a goodwin type player is not true as well. He was in the team at the start of the season and was dropped due to poor form. He didnt light it up at casey but was still recalled which shows goodwin rates him. I think we can all admit that garlett had a poor season and he hasnt had the same standards that he has brought to mfc every year since he joined. If garlett can recapture his early 2017 form where he was on track for a 50 goal season. It wont be a question of whether he can please you enough to make the melbourne team but more a question whether he can make the AA team.

    Good to hear about stretch. Really hoping he can nail preseason and push for one those wing roles we seem to struggle with next year.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Wouldn't be surprised. Would explain the massive unders we took for him. Let this sink in. GWS traded Boyd 1 year in for pick 4 and griffen and they were offering pick 6 and another later pick for griffen. Boyd had and still has not showed a quarter of the potential of hogan

    Official New Rule Changes for 2019

    I'll bite mr know-it-all. How do you prevent players blocking the ruckman if no one nominates as a ruckman?

    Rumour File

    Not sure where you would get that idea from. Just last year we offloaded a former no.1 pick for cheap because we couldnt get consistency and we struggle to get consistency out of petrecca. While i think we've improved from the underdevelopment of players I think i'd only rate Hawthorn as a club who are able to turn player's careers around (and even they fail sometimes - dayle garlett)

    Pretty obvious you dont watch much of GC if you think May is similar to Pederson. Theres no way GC would accept a 2019 first round pick as they would get a higher pick if they let him go for free agency. They only way a deal would be completed is if they got a high draft pick this year.

    Farewell Dean Kent

    Id say it would probably be the security of a 3 year contract. Cant see us offering close to that

    Farewell Dean Kent

    I think we should focus on the inconsistent players on our list (Petracca) before we try to grab inconsistent players on other lists and make them guns

    Angus Brayshaw

    Just wanted to send some brayshaw love. Thought he was really important last night. Mightve been a coincidence but when he went off with the knock the hawks were all over us. He comes on gets that scrappy kick to set melksham up.

    Spare Member Barcode

    Coming from interstate and would love an extra barcode. Happy to return the favour and give my barcode away in later weeks (maybe not the grand final if we make it)

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 23

    I defended you when everyone was attacking your unpopular opinions about Gaff yet here you are attacking someone for expressing their opinions on a player. Its a forum where people are free to express what they want. Just because you don't like it doesnt mean he doesnt have a right to express it.
