    hard to win a game if you kick 5 goals for three quarters ....

    not sure how GA standing room is counted. I assume they monitor the non seating ticketed entrant numbers at the turnstiles. Might be a good idea to arrive around an hour early and I would think you would be ok

    ???? he was ok at best

    makes some sense but if true I would have expected the club to say so... mind you MFC is often failing in the communication stakes these days
  5. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    dropped into the station last week after hearing about it. The program at that time was from Sydney and ARL centric. Obviously they will have some AFL but it didn't grab me at the time
  6. Is Goodwin the right guy....

    doubt it ... perhaps the following week
  7. Changes Vs Essendon

    Lose both tonight and against the Bombers we may as well start to plan for next season. We need to go to the bye at around 7 and 4... lose the next two and we will 2-4 which means we would need to win the next 5 straight. Big couple of weeks on the way.
  8. Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 5

    I must have missed that in his game at Coburg.... boy Goody does love the spin
  9. Where to play TMac?

    Agree BB Hogan is one of the few big men going around who is reasonably good below his knees. If we are lucky enough to have both Weid and T Mac firing (we would need to be very lucky) we would be a very powerful unit. As to how it would work with the current game plan, that is of course a secret known only to a select few of which I am not one. For me I would position Weid about 35 metres from goal and get him to run a number of patterns that were used intermittently as decoy runs and scoring runs. Nothing I have seen so far of the Weid suggests that he has the natural ability to "find" the ball. It would then be up to our skilled kicking midfield to find him at the designated points. ... yeah ... of course I'm dreaming !!
  10. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    Indeed there is my friend. We played our opening game last year down there OD. A beautiful day... caught the old train to Williamstown.. fish and chips on the promenade and then to the ground. Got chatting with some young fellows who played for the Williamstown under 18 comp. They were a pleasure to speak with and it is probably what got me interested in following the Casey VFL team. Port Melbourne is also worth a mention for its famous Burra burger alone
  11. Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 5

    Have a look at this Clint. Seems that you can get general admission with your MFC membership but it could be pot luck getting a seat. There is always standing room in the Southern Stand. cheers http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2018-04-16/anzac-day-eve-match-day-information
  12. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    Agree DD... a very strange set up. It also made it hard for spectators to access the arena itself at the breaks. Also very unimpressed with Punt Road from a spectator viewpoint. Ended up in the old stand which was comfortable but I love the VFL because of the ability to easily stroll around the ground and watch from different vantage points. Absolutely impossible due to access to various parts being denied. Catering came from one van in a crowded area that further exacerbated the squeeze. Give me Box Hill, Coburg etc any day. Williamstown on a non windy day is also an absolute delight.

  14. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    Saty in fairness I don't think you will see much if any complaint about Casey's overall performance on this thread. There was a comment on the game plan by one or two that is a different matter. Just very few positives unfortunately and those that were there have been mentioned by several posters.
  15. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    don't worry they won't be there long. Looks like Brisbane are the wooden spoon favourites at present
