  1. I was there that day. I was 12. Can you imagine as a 12 year old how much I loved seeing a bloke kick 11 freakish goals? That game and The Wiz kicking 10 goals in a half in 2000 are the best individual games I’ve ever seen. Both times I just felt privileged to be there.
  2. Farewell Jack Watts

    I’m sad to see Jack go, but not at the expense of this team figuring out that chances have to be taken and that we have to be ruthless to succeed. At the end of the day you can’t change culture without showing everyone you want too.
  3. Farewell Jack Watts

    Do we ‘know’ that anyone else has actually ever enquired towards Jack during his career? I mean it looks like we are giving him up for around pick 30, and even then only one club is keen. That tells you a lot about how the system views him. I also think he got paid overs by the MFC because we didn’t have anyone else coming up and couldn’t afford to lose players and feel even more like a sinking ship. That’s not true anymore. As for him having the best intent for the MFC, well that seems to be counter to the reports about his effort and endeavour over last preseason. Lets not rewrite history here. He’s a lovely guy, but he’s been paid well over market value for 75% of his career.
  4. Mahoney, get away

    Was about to agree with OP, but then not sure we’re talking about the same guy?

    Really disappointed the club couldn’t have got the deal done on Monday - so he could have come to our B&F.
  6. We had Brian Lake and we did not know

    http://m.afl.com.au/news/2017-10-08/flagging-fortunes-how-tom-missed-threepeat-chance I believe the thread is in reference to the above link. Gillies comes across like a total egomaniac. He admits that he refused to come back through the VFL development league and withdrew from playing. He ignored his long history with a recurring injury that may have had a lot to do with why the MFC wanted him to play in the development league. And he waffles on about how Hawthorn wanted him before he came to Melbourne. All it proves to me is that you’ve got to take the chances given to you.

    Reports on AFL site that Lever's been advised not to come to the Crows B&F tonight. First they low ball him, and now they won't even buy the bloke dinner. Classy.
  8. The Big Dance - Grand Final Day, 2017

    I didn't think it was possible for me to dislike footy as much as I have in 2017.
  9. Trade rumours

    Freo are planting the Hogan story, and they will continue to plant it every year. They know he is a gun, and they know how badly they need him. It's smart of them to do it. Some players get awfully upset at even the possibility of a trade - just ask Jordan Lewis. The only thing we have to worry about is whether Hogan is enticed to go, or whether the club is being vocal with him about how valuable he is to us.
  10. AFL Finals Week 3 - Prelims

    The irony of GWS is that they don't know how to play this ground. They are always 25 metres short in the midfield zone positioning. And because they AFL doesn't want to be embarrassed by their lack of supporters they'll get so few games scheduled at the G. It's going to be a real issue for them.
  11. Does Max Gawn work for the AFL?

    I therefore assume you support the right of our brave and proud LGBT soldiers and military personnel to marry whomever they see fit?
  12. Does Max Gawn work for the AFL?

    Everything is a political/social issue. So let's do away with: Anzac Day, Indigenous Round, the Woman's AFL entirely, the Pride match, Multicultural round, our Indigenous mascot, Melbourne's reconciliation plan, and the AFL's respect and responsibility policy. That would really make the game better wouldn't it?
  13. AFL Finals - Week 2

    14,000. Lowest final attendance in 100 years. Slow clap for the AFL. Nailed it. ☹️
  14. AFL Finals - Week 1

    Wow. Isn't that what the rule about lifting your arm up and drawing high contact was brought in for? Wasnt a great night for headquarters. 3rd umpire looked inconsistent, ruck rules are a joke that isn't funny anymore, and then that high free makes a mockery of recent rule changes brought in to stop that.
  15. AFL Finals - Week 1

    I'd like Essendon to get beaten by something in the 186 range.
