  1. ...but the coach is paid the big bucks to know better. I think we could also add the return of Smith to the list of premature inclusions. All coaches say they will pick players who are fit and in form. None them follow through, it's just human nature...not having a go at him for it.
  2. The backline looks lite on without Enright, Mackie, Lonergan...to name a few they've lost over the last couple of years. It's not easy replacing champions.
  3. Hope he's not working on this winning move...
  4. Sponsorship Problem?

    Where & when did he say he's leaving at the end of the year??? The only thing I heard him say was that he would like to do a handover similar to Roos. I don't remember hearing a particular date or time frame mentioned. ...and I very much doubt he will be leaving unless he has someone in place, he's invested too much to get things back on track. I think you are unduly worrying 'old dee'.
  5. Sponsorship Problem?

    Well, I guess he couldn't be accused of being a keyboard warrior....
  6. Fenceology Predicts the ladder

    Simple really 'Tough'... It's a no lose position. If we miss out he can say "told you so" If we make finals, well as a true Melbourne man he would be happy to be proven wrong.
  7. Quote from the phantom wiki...hope this helps 'puntkick'. "There are times when the Phantom leaves his jungle home and travels as an ordinary man." When he does, he wears a fedora, a trench coat, and sunglasses, and is known as "Mr. Walker". References to "Mr. Walker" are traditionally accompanied by a footnote saying "For 'The Ghost Who Walks'"
  8. Casey Demons 2018

    If they're relying on development league players to build their list 'norm' then the resurrection will be short lived. Hardly a benefit...
  9. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    So now Rodney Hogg is gone.... The last one out with any personality please turn off the lights.
  10. 2018's 'breakout' player

    2 greatest to legends ever to pull on a boot, Barassi & Whitten were persistent umpire whingers... I'm happy for him to have this weakness if it's his only flaw. ...but yeah, he could do with buttoning it up and concentrating on more important things. The game moves a bit too fast these days.
  11. I agree with you 'old dee', you have be something really special if you are short in AFL terms. From the little I've seen of Spargo, he just might be that. His kicking and hands are quite a step up from Kennedy for a start and he's not another Collingwood reject which has to count for something. ...but as you say, time will tell.
  12. I'm happy for them to count kicks and handballs too 'old dee', they can also give us the average age of the list etc. Anything past that is all crystal balls to me...
  13. AFLX is coming (the X makes it sound cool)

    So 'binman', if the FD had their way do you really think AFLX would be part of the mix? I think the problem here is it takes players away from best practice preparation for the season ahead.
  14. Gawn on SEN 16/11

    Yep, and no AFL clubs do a bootcamp...
  15. Gawn on SEN 16/11

    Agree... All good/great clubs have their line in the sand moments (usually a few, not just one). Hopefully this is one of ours and it builds stronger relationships.
