  1. Point is that surely Dunn would have been retained if anyone had any idea that TMac was a forward AND if he elected not to kick a torp from fullback. Is there a YouTube clip of his famous torp?
  2. Fact is either: Melbourne got them wrong. Collingwood are getting it wrong. Or, their leadership credentials have grown exponentially since they left. Less confusion now.
  3. Lever? You talking about ‘on paper’ and in theory? He is so far from AA it ain’t funny. Easy exercise for you to show the fab-four as if they are 4 aces. But what was the cost? Time will tell, as I said at the time, that Adelaide will ultimately win from the deal...easily. Freo showed us the way to deal (Hogan); whereas we blinked like a nervous teenager with Lever.
  4. Dunn and Howe make Collingwood’s leadership 5. We apparently lacked leadership and an AA and sought the superannuant. Did we get rid of Dunn because of the torp kickin from full back? I’m confused.
  5. Give me this fad over the plethora that AFL and elite sport have offered over the years...like pilates; hyperbaric chambers; and snow running.
  6. MCC and MFC need to dangle a better carrot here. Should be a section for Melbourne v. Non-MFC tennant games to get priority seating, or a tweed jacket, or pipe or Range-Rover key ring.
  7. I will admit that first viewing didn't look good, and most suspected the worst. But those that jumped on the keyboard and labelled him a 'cancer' etc... on the basis that it was cocaine, should really think about getting on here and making edits at best and apologies if they are courageous enough. Jack Watts wasn't the worst thing that happened to the MFC...in fact, if he was playing loose man instead of Jordie Lewis against West Coast Prelim Final, you might have seen a significantly different scoreline at the end. Jordie was BOG for West Coast in that game, that I unfortunately wont forget for a while. A nervous rookie would have done better. Said it for years... Jordie's blood in brown and gold....the only red and blue is the superannuation check...Jordie on field is inferior to Watts. Money is probably the same.
  8. In the current era of trading future picks, you need to judge a trading period over 2-3 years. If we did a Freo last year, we would have got Lever for much less. We need to think about how that trade impacted our recent efforts. Even getting May, trading away a 23 yo power forward with 600 goals left in him should have got us a pick in the top 10 remaining in our pocket. The Lever trade impacted this IMO. I give us a D+ over the 2 years.
  9. Give me May's body language any day of the week. Dustin Fletcher and SOS would have struggled playing FB for Gold Coast. I am more bullish on May than Lever to be honest. As for Hogan, Melbourne supporters have salivated over him for years. His good is very good, but his bad is bad. We don't need a sulk playing deep; and we need instant defensive pressure when things aren't going his way. Hogan will be great for Freo and he will get there. Freo have played us well. They have reduced our expectations (and Hogans) on what we should get for him (and what $$ he should be on). If only Peter Bell was here orchestrating the Lever deal, when we blinked and paid overs; when we actually didn't have to.
  10. Freo bluffing? This has a long way to go till Wednesday.
  11. About time we stood strong. For Lever we blinked before we sighted the other car, and paid overs. Graeme Wright and Clarko lead the industry by a country mile. We need West Coast in a bidding war in 12-24 months anyway. Roos sees Hogan as a CHB possibility to allow Weed and McDonald stay forward in the same team. Might happen in 2019....who knows.
  12. Contrast the way that the Geelong supporters handled Ablett's departure, versus the way our supporters handle Scully's departure. During his time here, we were a rabble. Senior players and staff used to pull Scully down with the "over-training" accusation, rather than seeing that a 19 year old was actually setting decent training standards. Why would he come back here, playing for supporters that really have half a brain. Clarko is on the money. Scully has had his pay-day and will now accept unders. Clarko is reaping the rewards of trading out dead wood when it should happen; not 3 years after.
  13. Bloody Oath Will win Coleman next year.

    As long as we get Bomber Thompson to provide a bit more experience to our coaching panel.
  15. You would be saying that if he was still at Hawthorn getting a game.
