    Marc Murphy at the Dees.

    Carlton owe us - and big time. They got Ron Barassi, Greg Wells & Earl Spalding . We got Vin Catoggio and a couple of 'could be's' who quickly showed they were 'won't be's'. We don't need broken down 29 year olds. Aim high - we're a club of destination - chase the big names who are in their prime.

    Peter Jackson's Replacement?

    Cricket does not now get the TV coverage that it once received. I can remember seeing regular reports and even live coverage of Sheffield Shield matches. This doesn't happen now. How many of us could name the best players in each State team, or which ones are pushing for national selection? And when less cricket is shown live on TV interest in the game will dwindle considerably. Recent on field bloopers and general boorish sledging do little to enhance the once popular sport.

    What a huge difference a few wins makes. Add increased skills and a much more positive supporter confidence and you've got, for the first time in years, a 'destination' club. We can attract 'top' players, the likes of Gaff and Sloane who would slot straight into the team. Gone are the days of hoping we can 'jag' a couple of 'depth' players at other clubs who might, but probably won't, cut the mustard. We are joining the Geelongs and Hawthorns who couldn't care less about the annual draft and who have simply waited for 'lesser' clubs to develop young talent before plundering them. How sweet it is!

    Jake Lever injury - Confirmed ACL

    Obviously Adelaide don't have a memory as long as mine. The mongrels pinched Scott Thompson when he was just hitting his straps with us. No suggestions from them that he was a traitor for leaving us. And I wonder what they think about Gibbs going to them from Carlton.

    Changes vs Bulldogs

    Knowing that if they're playing well at Casey they will get their chance. There's bound to be injuries or loss of form. Hawthorn, Geelong and other 'successful' teams seem to be able to keep 'fringe' players. Part of a successful club culture I guess.

    2017 Player Reviews: # 32 Tomas Bugg

    I watched Rodney Grinter hand out more than a few 'punishments' over several years. Whilst 'stupid' behaviour, we still loved him and appreciated the intense pressure he applied.

    The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    If it wasn't a former MFC champion we wouldn't be having this discussion. The few times I turned them on their inane, childish and uninteresting topics of conversation were interspersed between long segments of advertisements. Having said that, the method of their dismissal was disgusting.

    Top 10 Exciting Demons

    One surprising absentee from the list is Jim Stynes. I would think that his revolutionary ruck style, incredible endurance and the number of successive games he strung together, would earn him a place on the list. Of course winning a Brownlow in a landslide would also point to this.

    Max Gawn Contract Extension

    An inform Max Gawn gives our midfielders a great chance of gaining clearances from centre bounces, boundary throw ins and ball ups. You don't give up an advantage like this. We don't have many! Sign him up. Quickly!

    Farewell Jack Watts

    I wonder if the perceived 'poor' pick 31 for Jack Watts might have been influenced just a tad by Jones and significant others coming out and listing his weaknesses? Didn't make any sense to me as a wise strategy at the time. Still doesn't.
  13. 14 pages of comments on Harley Balic is incredible. How many games has he played at Fremantle? Just as well we're not expecting an Ablett or a Dangerfield.
  14. We are a sad lot! With all respect to young Balic, he's hardly a household name at Freo, as indicated by the number of games he's played for them. I look at the players linked to other, more successful clubs, and shake my head in wonder. Apart from Lever - and what a great get he will be, if we get him - we are still not a destination club.

    Farewell Jack Watts

    I can't for the life of me understand why Jones, Goodwin and Mahoney would make negative comments about Watts if they intend to get rid of him. It's a bit like putting an ad in the paper if you're selling your car. 'Clutch slipping, engine running on 3 cylinders, brakes dodgy.'
