    "I think it is more reasonable to "copy" where the Bulldogs are going, rather than trying to emulate a team that has been labelled by some as the greatest of all time.

    This team, had the fortune to get it right and have early picks, in a couple of super-drafts. Then, they had the fortune after this stockpiling, for the league to introduce 2 expansion clubs that prevented teams underneath from rebuilding quickly." Oct 2015

  1. Can the AFLPA issue an injunction for the incarcerated to avoid breaking rocks.
  2. Boot Camp 2017 cancelled by Players

    Says a lot about both the playing group, the leaders and the coaching staff. There is obviously a trust issue that the playing group perceive the FD as having too much brawn and not enough brain; while the coaching staff will question the resilience of the playing group. Cant believe that this wasn’t mediated before union intervention. Something stunk with the Watts scapegoat saga. But a rotten stench is thick now. Roos the man-manager was underrated by our supporters. I remember many wanting Goody to takeover before Roos’ 3rd year. If I was opposition I would sledge us till the cows are locked in the shed.

  3. Wattsy's 150k is the antithesis of stabilisation I would have thought. What's that. 300-400 memberships?
  4. Best MFC team in last 50 years

    Northey Coach. How B Lovett can not start in the 18 is beyond me. How G Lovett makes the squad is beyond me.
  5. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    BS. If Jack Watts left Melbourne a year of so ago, we would have labelled him a "traitor". He stuck fat when we were siht. We should stick fat over his temporary plot-losing in the pre-season of 2017. The supporters who have heavily questioned Jack's off-loading, have some idea about: - LOYALTY being a 2-way street - VALUE. Pick 31 and negative $150,000 gets you absolute carp in this game. - not blindly following 100% what the club spits out. The latest is that "he had trouble accepting feedback".
  6. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    One day, MFC supporters are going to stop whinging about: fixture, Etihad, injuries, luck, umpires, Etihad, Buckenara, Etihad, handball, compensated interstate games, Etihad, the bounce of the ball; the MCC waiting list etc... Grow a pair, and realise that we reap what we sow. Surely Barassi’s ‘If it is to be it is up to me’ does not pertain to the MFC, or us supporters. Thought of the day: It is only 2 train stops from the G to Etihad.
  7. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Hardly any Friday night games in 2018. Surely somehow connected to Jack Watts.

    Hard to keep your eyes open when you yawn so much. i can now add incorrect to irrelevant.
  9. Farewell Jack Watts

    You guys once laughed at Richmond.
  10. Farewell Jack Watts

    As opposed to Hogan’s professionalism in WA smoking darts. Setting standards? My arze.
  11. Viney's Foot

    It passed the ultimate fitness test earlier this month: dancing one leg on Wattsy’s grave. Only serious. pTGR
  12. Farewell Jack Watts

    First, the poll should be changed to "Do we trade Jack Watts for pick 31 and salary discounting for 2 years". I realise he didn't have the "eye of the tiger". I realise he aint someone I'd go to war with. The whispers now are that "he couldn't accept feedback inside the club". But if Goodwin's/club is 100% honest, they stated that he should explore his options, and if the right deal came up, then the club would have a look at it. What the club really meant was "he is gone, we will take the best deal we can get". The leadership may have even gone to the club and gave a green light for trading him, but again, the deal has to be right. It wasn't. For a club that may push in 2018/19, I'd rather a player that can play multiple positions (forward, pinch-hit ruck +/- back), as a relatively mobile tall; even if he was considered a 'depth' player hereon...than pick 31 and some salary. The great thing that Port did, was have the strength to say here is pick 31, and by the way, you will pay part of his salary. That is pushing a bargain to its limits. Something we cannot say we did. No balls in negotiation....no brains either.

    I must be delusional. Gibbs at 29 = Lever Gibbs at 29 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Watts
  14. Farewell Jack Watts

    He is already on 300k (200 + minimum) per year in 2018 and 19.
