  1. McKenna i agree with (but got a 2 year contract so probably best not to break it after one year of injury). Vandenberg i like (just needs to kick better). Plus i believe someone else posted recently stating that Vandenberg's leadership off-field has been first class and i'd suggest that is why he was retained. Obviously both may be in trouble at the end of this year if they cannot get back on the park.

    Originally i didn't care, but the closer it gets the more excited i seem to be :)! Looking forward to it and especially seeing the young talent on the park for the first time (Spargo in particular).

  5. Preseason Training - Week commencing 11/12/17

    I dislike the sound of it. Hopefully doesn't need a clean-up for something like a small meniscus tear. I'm sure we will find out soon enough.
  6. Yet to debut . . .

    I have a good feeling about Spargo. Reading all the draft reports and how he would've gone higher etc etc i can't help but feel like he may get a game early (but i think i'd like to see some of this potential in the pre-season competition/intra-clubs first). Fritsch is the other i could see playing too.
  7. Preseason Training - Week commencing 6/11/17

    Anyone know if Balic had an injury that would influence his running? The facebook post said he was at the back with the ruckmen in the running.
  8. 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
  9. Josh Schache

    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..
  10. Trade rumours

    Believe he signed a new contract this year and he took a pay cut for his love of Essendon (~$750,000/year).

    Burton sounds like an absolute [censored].. I hope he walks to the draft and they get nothing.
  12. 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).
  13. 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.

    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/

    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
