  1. Did they used to play down at Macleay Park? Good old comp the Churches, not so sure about the amalgamation with the SE League to form the Southern...

    Go and get Gaff!

    ...the bye round, nearly as bad as preseason. It will be good to be back playing footy again on Friday.

    Delisting, Trade and FA discussion 2018

    I wouldn't be targeting Wallis 'Moon'... I think Tyson is a much better player/prospect and he's struggling to get a game. We need a bit of run & carry/class. Looking for someone to emerge like Yeo has at WC...this is the type of player we need. Who has the skillset but hasn't put it all together yet? Someone to really work with Oliver... The dogs have a kid Webb or Williams maybe another, can't remember who but looked to have the raw talent. I'm sure we like all clubs are on the lookout, that's why Langdon's name is popping up.

    Go and get Gaff!

    Yep, I get people expressing their opinions but I think they're not looking at the bigger picture. ...you can't judge him by a game like Friday night which was a glorified game of rugby in many respects. Nor can you go on the outside player reputation he's often tagged with as this year he's shown he can get his own ball. With the changes coming into the game next year, and they will come the game will open out a lot more and it will be imperative to have runners like Gaff. It's probably our biggest weakness. An open forward line is going to be great for us with Tommy Mac, Hogan and Weid, Oliver will be unstoppable around the ball but we still need class runners bringing the ball in.

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    No, it's a key factor in growth but there's a lot more to it than that. Get the wins but place yourself to take advantage of them, that's the way we will grow. North are a great example of a team who weren't able to translate on-field success to support and memberships.

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    During PJ's time the President and board have pretty much remained in the background. This year they have had to tick off on 3 big calls...selling off poker machine money, selecting a new CEO and developing a new home base. I'm sure many share my trepidation as previous boards/presidents don't imbue me with confidence but with these decisions best of 3 won't win. All 3 must be winners.

    Round 13 Non - MFC Games

    Pretty sure Hocking's super committee are looking seriously into it 'daisy'.

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    Dill's AFL is a little bit flakey for me, I don't put a lot of store in their acumen. For all his short comings AD did have a clue...

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    There was rumours of a rift between Jackson & Bartlett a year or so back. I just hope Bartlett's ego is not getting the better of him here. Melbourne Presidents don't have a good record of appointments.

    Round 13 Non - MFC Games

    What is it with the umpires. They've been instructed to just ball the ball up now and not take time telling players they're moving out backwards (has anyone ever seen an ump throw the ball up or bounce it and run forward). ...yet, they are law unto themselves and despite instructions still seem to what to tell players they're moving out the back. This type of thing has been going on for years now with any rule interpretation. They enforce it one week and by week 3 it's back where it was in the first place. No wonder the game is going backwards...

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    Funnily enough he was the first one to come to my mind...didn't mention him at the time though. Thought he was done with footy. I wonder if the Roos connection played any part? a pity the podcast was before the announcement.

    Marc Murphy at the Dees.

    ...but of course he will be a champion when he signs with us 'Sat'.

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    I'm hoping this will be a good appointment as I'm sure we all are. For those worried about negative inside mail from Collingwood people, we got the same negative stuff about PJ from the EFC people on his announcement. If Pert is as big a disaster as PJ has been I will be a happy man.

    Changes v Port

    I hope not 'rp'...It's not only churlish but just plain wrong. I've just been watching a replay of the game and Tyson was clearly BOG and I didn't notice him waxing with Bugg. Just looked up the club site and the article was written by Ben Gibson, obviously the work experience kid...

    Changes v Port

    There's no way Frost is a safe play...it would be a backwards step to me.
