  1. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    I think you’re being polite with the word shocking RGRS. 32 behinds under the roof?
  2. NHL

    Two great games back to back on TV this morning. Late drama in both with the Flyers and Avalanche keeping their respective series alive heading back home for game 6.
  3. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    Low scoring scraps are back.
  4. Welcome Johnnie Walker (we all need you!)

    Southern Comfort for me.
  5. A Day at the Races

    The DL trifecta works for the first time. What a battle that was down the straight. Very brave by Le Romain and we almost had a $10 winner in the tri. Showtime third by a nostril, phew.
  6. A Day at the Races

    Didn’t that rattle home Macca? Proved the last start win wasn’t a fluke. Nice odds for Seabrook, I thought Long Leaf was a winning chance but was stuck 3 wide the trip and had nothing left in the straight.
  7. A Day at the Races

    Lol, bolter alright.......maybe Trapeze Artist gets rolled and we still end up with the right combo. The former Japanese ( Satono Rasen) galloper creates some interest in the All Aged. Now with Waller and hasn’t won under 2000m.
  8. A Day at the Races

    Spot on Macca, I thought the horse would rail up and go whoosh, like the first two in Dothrakis race. Edit: I meant in the the Holy Snow Race.
  9. A Day at the Races

    Dothraki loomed as the winner but as the caller noted the horse’s run stopped quickly. Plenty of racing left to make amends.
  10. A Day at the Races

    Winning selections are in so here’s the final piece of the puzzle. Selections for 2nd and 3rd: 8. Tom Melbourne 11. Showtime Hartnell was the other obvious choice but I couldn’t fit 3 into 2 and wanted to add some value, not that it would make much of a difference anyway. As @Macca stated previously, members can add extra runners if they choose to do so.
  11. Training 19/4

    Anyone heading out for the session this morning?
  12. Training 19/4

    Honestly can’t remember 2 of them, the other was Garlett. Maybe Max was frustrated and decided to give a bit of a spray to the nearest players and they themselves were disappointed with their efforts they didn’t want to face him.
  13. Round 5 Non-MFC Games

    What was the conversation all about during the review? Something about kicking in danger and indiscriminate kicks causing damage. Was that the ump talking to a player?
  14. A Day at the Races

    It’s on Sunday Wadda. Race 7 3.50pm. I’ve looked on a couple of sites for odds but they’re not showing yet.
  15. A Day at the Races

    You’re up around Ballarat? I’ll flick you the old owners pass to head down to the track and get the Zephyr over the line. I also like the Best Bests so far. Maybe, just maybe they will salute to lift the mood on Demonland this week.
  16. Training 19/4

    Good point, when Roughead marked the ball in the last quarter on his own about 30 metres out from a pass that came from the boundary someone posted Wagner had a few words to say to Lewis. I didn’t see that but sitting at the bottom of the Ponsford a few of us noticed Max getting stuck into three teammates and the gestures indicated that those players weren’t in the right spot leading up to the play or filling the hole like they should. The disappointing thing out of all that was that all 3 players turned their back on him and walked away without even acknowledging Max. We slumped back in our seats wondering if there was any care factor after that.
  17. Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 5

    Advice heeded ET, at least his last para is more appropriate for this thread.
  18. Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 5

    Is this where we have gone wrong? Our players buy their own PS4 and X-Box consoles. If you know the Toiges so well can you give us a hint on how to beat them on Tuesday?
  19. NHL

    One way traffic in the Penguins game yesterday. They should close it out at home in game 5. Leafs V Bruins about to start, looking forward to this one.
  20. Richmond VFL v Casey Demons - Round 3

    I think you’ve lost your Neal-Bullen magnet Werridee. He’s not in this or your senior team.
  21. A Day at the Races

    Ha Ha Macca, I thought this would be easier than trying to find a best bet. I have 4 horses down for the place at the moment, hoping binman picks one of them so I’m down to 3.
  22. A Day at the Races

    Best Bet: Randwick Race3 No.2 Dothraki Current odds: Tab $2.70 Ultra consistent gelding. Only one unplaced start in the last 5 and that was by only 3.9len. The dangers I came up with in the race are Burning Passion (3) and Bolero King (8). Dothraki beat both of them home last start carrying 59kg. He carried 2kg more than Burning Passion and 6kg more than Bolero King on that occasion. He meets them much better this week at the weights and for that reason I make him my top selection. Respect for the top weight also coming back from 2 Group 1’s. The Zephyr has accepted at Ballarat on Sunday. Race 7. Very surprised they would choose to run the horse at 1000m. I will have some mail by Sunday for those that would consider a buck or two on him. Remember, still on a 17 run losing streak. 🏇🏿
  23. Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 5

    I don’t think it sounds right either. You would assume we would announce a squad after Saturday’s training session or at least by the time the Casey squad is finalised for Sunday’s game.
  24. Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 5

    Last Sunday was definitely a massive kick in the guts for us supporters. Maybe from here on we can generate some positive discussion on how we can beat the Toiges. IMO, we should look at trying to stop Cotchin and his influence rather than putting all our eggs in the one basket with Dusty. Selection will be interesting and it looks like we might have an idea of the changes when Casey play on Sunday. The below is from an article on the MFC website earlier in the week. Both clubs will submit teams on Monday night and won't be required to publicise squads of 25 in the lead up to that deadline.
  25. NHL

    Vegas Golden Knights sweep the LA Kings. The Golden Knights became the first NHL team to sweep a Stanley Cup playoff series in its inaugural season. Bravo!! The games were a lot closer than the series score suggests. Four 1 goal victories to the Knights. Caps get back one on Columbus to keep the series alive and it looks like the Wild are up against it going back to Winnipeg 3-1 down.
