  1. 2018 Membership Thread

    ‘Noting less will suffice’ sadly sums up the expectations of we long-suffering Dees supporters.
  2. Best MFC team in last 50 years

    Nice post. This should keep us going through summer. Need to find a spot for Shane Woewodin, 2000 Brownlow medallist.
  3. Trade rumours

    Excellent work. We just need to get Toumpas involved in all this and some trade that results in Cameron Ling no longer haunting the TV commentary.
  4. Changes versus Collingwood

    I agree with you about Watts. However, listening to the odd response by the coach in the post-match media conference to a question about how Watts went at Casey makes me think he was none too pleased.

    Two observations. As woeful as our performance was, one small positive was that we matched GWS on the scoreboard after the first quarter. Secondly, Melbourne seems to have struggled forever with windy venues. We are always disadvantaged kicking into the wind, but rarely kick a bagful with it.
  6. GAMEDAY - Round 17

    Plus we have to put up with high pitched squealing nonsense from Ling.
  7. How's everyone coping?

    I'm also having the curious experience of noticing blokes seemingly play much better on the replay than during the match itself. At the MCG I thought ANB was ordinary until Sunday night on the replay when he popped up everywhere. Similarly, Cam Pedersen lifted his game from poor to ok come replay time.
  8. AFL Round 16 - Non MFC Games 2017

    Unduly rough play. One week reduced to nothing, cause they're playing Melbourne next week.
  9. Interim Captain

    Old McDonald He's got the form.
  10. Where to go for useful insights

    Diabolical starts indeed. Sitting back in my Paris hotel this evening - adds an international gloss to a few additions - I decided to quickly check the stats on our quarter by quarter cumulative scores to round 10 this year. They tell the story: Q1 21.31 Q2 42.27 Q3 44.27 Q4 42.25

    Works both ways. Hogan and/or Gawn play and we probably would have won by more.
  12. My 3 word player analysis V Richmond

    Frost - really impressed me ANB - racking up possessions It's been so long since we had such a strong team, yet we've lost 3 in a row. The suspensions and injuries are having such a huge impact. And Collingwood have played Essendon into form.
  13. Changes v Essendon (Round 6)

    = nil all draw as the umpire would have to wait for ever for us to nominate our ruckman.
  14. The Petracca v McCartin debate reprised

    Thanks for alerting us to this well-written, thought provoking article WJ.
  15. Dusty to Hawthorn

    The fact that many don't 'think before they post' is one of the attractions of this site!
