    Glen Bartlett Post Season Update

    In stark contrast to Eddie! 👍

    Does Height matter that much?

    If you look at 200+cm players, the ladder position is roughly inversely proportionate to the number on your team! 😳

    Gary Pert?

    Bit hard to expect him on the MFC website! 😳 They would have to remove Basic, Vince, etc first (and add Sparrow)!

    Training - Wednesday, 28th November 2018

    I would have suggested Christian Petracca with that grin! 😳

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    DV8 it is the Melbourne Cricket Ground after all (and we started life as the Melbourne Cricket Club Football Club)! Our secret is to strengthen our association rather than ‘untie the apron strings ‘!

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    Despite the enthusiasm of Binman (which I share), the initial concept is focussed on players and administration rather than a gathering place for the MFC faithfull. There is still a fair bit of concept work to go as I understand and hopefully the patient MFC membership base can end up with a high profile facility next to the “G” which they can own rather than share with other codes. My belief is that it will include components which will benefit the local community rather than merely the Club’s football operations and have a positive outcome for the local area. It is the most appropriate position by a long shot and it has merit on planning grounds which hopefully the Club can elucidate to convince East Melbourne/Richmond that it is a Win/Win proposal!

    As an aside, I spoke with Mick Malthouse today (who lives directly opposite our proposed Yarra Park facility)! He is dead against it! (NIMBY?)
  8. Although Hore seems to have shrunk a cm in the course of the article, it is encouraging that he has also managed to add 7 kg on his frame. If he keeps adjusting his body at this rate, he will be ginormous by Round 1!

    THE 2018 AFL NATIONAL DRAFT

    Weren’t things scheduled to restart again 1.5 hours ago? 😳

    Nice thoughts guys/(gals)! There are a number of requirements either site, including player car parking! I can see advantages in both. 1) Wellington Parade will involve no building over parkland, but conversion of grassland into an oval/training ground. 2) Olympic Boulevard involves building over parkland but no (perceived) alienation of ‘parkland’ as it is already sporting ovals!

    Because the other codes train and play their (and presumably have an administration presence)!

    They didn’t announce it before the election! The East Melbourne Group (of Nimbbys) are using it to pressure the politicians of all parties into opposing it! None of their leaders are likely to vote Green but they are using the process to their advantage as they know that this is the month when the politicians are likely to support/oppose anything that will get them votes!

    Doesn’t need to remain Gosch’s Paddock! Simply swap with the other codes so that we are the one right on Olympic Boulevard (and our new facilities spanning it)!

    No argument on that but the proposal is about centralised administration, gymnasium etc as well!

    He told me that he is a Melbourne ‘supporter’ (but I would be positive that he wouldn’t fork out for a membership or be interested enough to attend games)!
