    Phantom Drafts - 2018

    Agree with Norm here - no need to go small. Pick two mids or one mid and a tall with those picks. Pick Bedford as your small later on.

    2019 Fixture

    We played Port Adelaide at the MCG in Round 1, 2013 and were humiliated. I’m not talking about revenge but it’s time to put them in their place.

    I want to report them for poaching!

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    People have been asking that the thread be closed from as far back as page 2. Probably a good thing the mods didn’t listen back then.

    This name sounds interesting - Bigoa Nyuon 18-May-01 195 84 Dandenong Stingrays Rowville Junior FC Rowville SC The name sounds Sudanese and since he comes from the Dandenong Stingrays which is in the MFC Next Generation Academy zone, he could be in the same category as Toby Bedford is in this year. One worth watching in the future.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Grand Final

    After reading this excellent piece, I’m wondering how it’s possible that so many people were wandering around the city last night wearing red and blue scarves and with big grins on their faces?

    Tony Sheahan also reporting that Collingwood is working to secure May and also looking at a deal for Beams.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Grand Final

    Has Clarrie gone in for that shoulder operation yet? Will Bernie get selected in the hope of winning his second premiership flag in 6 days?

    Post Match Discussion - Elimination Final

    Also beat the Cats last week in the VFL and if Box Hill wins today then we play them in the Prelim next week. First the Cats and then the Hawks, both in the National and the State comp.

    Round 23 Non MFC Games

    I wouldn’t be discounting the Dockers. They have an unpredictably dual nature in that they are the competition’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde: usually very good on their home deck but they go shockingly when they have to travel away. Barring the local derby games, Freo are 7-3 on their home ground this year. Their scalps include both Adelaide teams and earlier this year they nearly knocked over the Eagles at the venue. I’m backing them in to upset the Pies.

    Casey Demons v Williamstown - Round 21

    Beg to differ about Wagner being the emergency. He filled that role only recently and needs the match fitness. I think it’s either JKH or Wagner to play at Melbourne and that Spargo will be given the two week’s rest.

    2018 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch

    Clearly, our list management and recruiting people aren't as obsessed with early draft picks as were their counterparts ten years ago. They already have managed to pluck out two category B rookies for development at Casey including young Bradtke who at 18 years and 205cm seems perfect for that sort of role where he can patiently serve his time as understudy for Maxy. History shows there are still some good prospects in the 30-40 range and here's hoping our people can snag some more Fritsch/Spargo types this year.
