The footy classified show on ch 9, 9th of July 2018 said they won't talk about MFC till we beat a club above position 10 on the ladder. We suffered for years as the easy beats now we can play, they suggest this. Has it happened to any other club? What is wrong with talking about us? Us fans need to hear what the commentators views are and get some news about MFC. Are we not part of the AFL family? Why ostracize us? I hope it is tongue in cheek, though they didn't mention anything about the Darwin game and they intend not to talk about the dogs game. WOW! If we don't beat Geelong then nothing for us, peculiar.

I find their statement offensive. Wouldn't happen to the bigger clubs.

Saw that as well.

if applied to all clubs will limit the show which could be a good thing.

AFL would love the show as it allows enough breaks for adverts and loves talking about Collingwood. They may not play a team above ten in the run home with their soft draw, so will be interesting

We beat North who are 9th.

Can't watch Footy Classified with that bloke Caro on. 

Watch Talking Footy instead.

But I bet they raved on about Collingwood who have only beaten us out of all the teams in the 8

Yes, breathless hypocrisy.

They only get mentioned when they lose or have a bad game. Anytime they play well they get no credit whatsoever like other sides do when they bounce back.

Wrong.  If you are starting a line of comment at least get the facts and quotes  correct to avoid misinterpretation.

It was part of " good call bad call" .. The quote was " should the MFC be starved of serious oxygen ?" as posed I think by LLoyd.  Hutchy replied it was unfair but understood the issue behind it, and hence no serious coverage on finals was his meaning, unless serious scalps claimed.

Lloyd BTW believes MFC will come good, as said on a recent prior show as does David king.

Talking Footy is for children. If only i was prepared to give News Corp. money I would have Foxtel but alas.

Oh, sorry didn't quite understand the commentary. Not too focused on the show. Easy to misinterpret if not too knowing of their program. How come that was all they mentioned of the Dees? You can see that others heard the same thing as me. Poor media communication, though I apologise for the misleading post. Thanks for the reply and correction 17.

I just watched the first segment of On The Couch with Jonesy replacing Lyon. It was interesting to hear what he said about us and how we were playing, particularly when he mentioned Port. I agreed with everything that he said up until he said at the end of the day Port were the better team on the night. I hope that's not what they really believe. Port were not the better team on the night, we were the better team and we stuff it up. I would've liked to have seen him say more than "we were disappointed with the result", I want them to be &*$# off that they let a game that was in our grasps in every way slip through our fingers. 

The numbers all look good and we can say all the KPI's look good on paper but until they get translated into wins they mean nothing.

Your idealogical resistance is preventing you from accessing a smorgasbord of sport. Cycling, golf, MLB, NBA. Not to mention National Geo etc. Of course, there are devices that let you get it for free...

If she was a 'bloke' she might be taken more seriously. She gets under the skin of many but still one of the best writers in the game.

I hate nitpicking what players say publicly but that stood out to me as well. The tone of his answer was sometimes you have to accept that you got beaten on the day. It was a shrug of the shoulders type of response. I wasn’t a fan and I’d hope if Jonesy watched it back he would word it differently. I don’t want acceptance of any loss by the players, least of all a loss where we were the dominant side from a statistical point of view.

Jesse currently on Fox’s The Weekend Lowdown. Refreshing to see him smile and have some fun. Scrubs up well too does Jesse. Never seen this show before, looked like some lighthearted fun.

When the question was put to him, he would have Nathan Jones as the player to kick for goal to win after the siren from the 30-40m range. 

Touched on his midfield minutes, more stay at home forward now since the return of Gus and Viney into the team.

Anyone else apart from me prefer us to be NOT in the limelight, doesn't agree with us. Not until we have credence.

Yep, willmoy. I'd prefer the Dees' players to stay out of the media - organisations that know how to exploit 'for the glory of it'. The media and the AFL world remind me of an old joke: Q: What do sharks and lawyers have in common? A: Professional courtesy. Media personalities are leeches. It's 'mate this...' and 'mate that...' , '...now show us your dirty laundry in the spirit of good humour...or better still, let us show the viewers/listeners/readers your dirty laundry that we found!'

Yes, can't remember exactly, but Lewis got left holding the bag, when something was said about the Media itself, with that Tiger boofhead

When no one agreed with him.

I thought the footy show having embarrassed Petracca with his basketball skills may have contributed to his poor performances.
