  1. Farewell Jack Watts

    I heard that it's a few of the Melbourne players who were close to selection, but playing at Casey, were disgruntled (best word i can think of) that jack was playing ones and not doing the non-negotiables that Goodwin preaches. Yet these melbourne listed players at Casey were doing them, but not getting rewarded. If this was true surely talking to Jack and changing habits is the first action, if he didn't change after repeated discussions about them, then for team morale I'd understand the trade. In the end it's done and i think we would've been too top heavy, and perhaps still are if we want Weed in the team. Hopefully we make finals and beat port in the first final
  2. The Josh Schache Thread

    Thinking if we hadn't of gone for Weid in that draft (a mid or Curnow instead) then Schache would be of interest to us. But how would we know the number 2 pic would turn out like this and possibly be available at say pick 10..
  3. Trade rumours

    Believe he signed a new contract this year and he took a pay cut for his love of Essendon (~$750,000/year).
  4. Burton sounds like an absolute [censored].. I hope he walks to the draft and they get nothing.
  5. Trade rumours

    SEN said that 20-25 would be fair for Watts. Be interested to see what we get for him (although still in shock that we are throwing him away).
  6. End of year delistings

    Just read this article and at the bottom it says: "Adelaide Crows fans feared their club had made an error when Bernie Vince finished third in the best and fairest in his first season with Melbourne before winning it in his second after being traded in 2013. But a few years down the track the compensation this year’s premiership favourite received — the 23rd selection in the draft which they used on now All-Australian midfielder Matt Crouch — looks more than worth the early pain." http://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/former-coach-says-mitchell-trade-cost-swans-premiership/news-story/b2bab3c1dc017b01e565e98f094b3b95 I wonder if we would still make the trade now, and i wonder how much more footy Vince has left at him at the top level.
  7. Josh Kelly

    Hawks getting Lachie Whitfield according to shane crawford (didn't know where to post it) https://www.sen.com.au/news/2017/08/24/is-a-giant-midfielder-on-his-way-to-the-hawks/
  8. Match Review Panel Farce

    Vision is up. I can't see anything untoward at all, but we accepted it. http://www.melbournefc.com.au/video/2017-08-14/vfl-christian-salem-incident
  9. Doping in Sport

    SEN had someone on talking about this around 630am yesterday and they said that Gatlin appealed the 8 year verdict to another body who overruled their verdict (hence he came back 4 years early, which meant he wasn't to old and able to compete). So from the sounds of that, they were trying to finally clean up the sport and whoever Gatlin appealed to overruled them, so their hands were tied. Very unfortunate
  10. Where was everyone?

    Especially when you consider that we had 5k more than the pies 22,927 Pies vs WC
  11. Key Positions

    I really want the recruiting staff to work on Hogan's second efforts and pressure in general. I can't really remember him laying a tackle.. I want him to make opposition players scared to have the ball around him. I'm sure it will come (well hopeful)..
  12. Tommy Bugg on report

    I'd actually love to see the club come out before the tribunal and say we don't stand for off the ball sniping. As a result, we are giving him a __(3-6) wk suspension and if the tribunal does less then he loses out and if the tribunal do more then he doesn't. but it puts us in a good position :). And then it would really make the tribunals decision interesting then wouldn't it..
  13. Port Melbourne v Casey Demons

    what do we have? 13-15 injured? someone pointed out before this weekend we had more injuries than GWS. Add bugg (sus), viney and Tyson to that.. i think we have good depth, but too many injuries.

    Apart from the crappy scheduling and injuries, what stood out for me was our poor kicking ability/efficiency skiils in general. I think we knew we were an average kicking team, but we had covered it well until now. Tonight without Jones, Watts, Salem and Garlett (all i would rank in our top 5 best kicks) we looked decidedly average in skills.
  15. Changes v Weagles

    If watts was rested (i.e. with sydney match in focus the week after), then our forward line would be Pedo and Tmac as the talls. I don't mind that given they are both in such good form. Anyone heard if Kennedy is back for them? really hoping not.
