    Finals Week 2 - Non MFC Game

    Yes a Sam Weideman goal kicked after the siren, but as a result of a miss-kick out of the goal square by Jeremy Howe.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Elimination Final

    That will be a good problem - means that Melbourne will have won the first game, against Geelong, and he may have contributed to that win, and will be in a position to deal with that fatigue problem in his second game that you’ve raised

    Changes v Gold Coast Suns

    Yes, and in the after game coverage with Darcy and Richardson in the Melbourne rooms, Hogan was standing in the background the whole time laughing and joking with a group of young supporters, which seemed good of him to give them so much of his time post-game, and he seemed happy!

    Sponsorship Problem?

    Why the enquiry about Jackson and the CEO position on the Sponshorship thread? Seems to be taking is all off at a bit of a tangeant and derailing the thread topic.

    Top 10 Exciting Demons

    I think you'll find he was having a bit of a shot at most other posters, including the poll, mis-spelling his name as David Schwartz instead of Schwarz.

    The 2018 Fixture Thread

    McLachlan's comment about Carlton being allocated 4 Friday night games: "There's clearly a bit of risk in them if you took the end of 2017 (as a guide on their form next season) but I think Carlton are building a strong team and they're well coached." The inference from that comment would be that in contrast, Melbourne, despite coming off 12 wins and finishing ninth, are not building a strong team and are not well coached, therefore warrant only 1 Friday night game! And giving Carlton 4 games is based on the AFL's somewhat subjective and speculative assessment of Carlton's "strong team", being "well coached" and how they'll go next year.

    Are we still starting up new threads about Jack Watts, even now that he's gone?

    Richmond 2018...are they the Bullogs of 2016

    I assume you mean will Richmond 2018 be the Bulldogs of 2017 when things went pear shaped for them, rather than will they be the Bulldogs of 2016 in your heading, when they won the premiership? But yes, potentially...

    To do that would be Misson Impossible.

    Nathan Jones Media Conference

    Calls for an 'apology' from the club? "The club apologises for winning 12 games this season, being two more games than last year, which in turn was three more wins than the year prior, etc. We sincerely apologise for such progression from just two wins for the season only a few years back..."

    To make out at the highest level? I'm sure with his good looks that the ladies provide him with plenty of opportunities to prove that.

    Tommy Bugg Graffiti

    I noticed Bugg making that 'titanic' pose after his goal last week, in front of Jack Watts, as a bit of a send up of Watts's celebration of his own goal the previous week, mimicking the same stunned facial expression.

    All The Goals Round 12

    It was great post-Watts-goal TV footage showing Taylor Adams, having made those unsuccessful Melbourne vs successful Collingwood remarks in the week prior, slumped on hands and knees and puffed out after a futile, distant chase of Watts, looking down at the ground dejectedly.
