McDonalds @ MFC

Recommended Posts

Not the food establishment, but I was wondering how long (continuously) has a McDonald been on the MFC list.

I think it is since 1995, or thereabouts. Can anyone with a thirst for research find out? Have there been other continuous surnames with such a time period? Smith would have a chance.

Also how far back do we go before a McDonald was not named in the team? Perhaps when Junior did his hamstring in his last year...

Don't forget all the hungry jacks. Lost a few to Port Adelaide but Viney is still tracking for round 1.

Strictly speaking there would have been a few weeks in 2010 after James McDonald was delisted (contracts end on 31 October) and Tom McDonald was drafted on 18 November 2010.

very observant and caters to my pedantic nature! I see that as continuous based on each year on list. Does anyone know how far back McDonalds go? Surely we have an amateur historian amongst us.

"Kroc's first McDonald's restaurant opened on April 15, 1955, at 400 North Lee Street in Des Plaines, Illinois, near Chicago."

Surely we count in seasons. If Junior was on the list in 2010 and TMac came on board in 2011 then that counts as consecutive time I reckon.

Anthony McDonald started in 1997, so I'd say we've had a McDonald on the list every season since then.

It's probably fair to say that Viney was the only Hungry Jack... the rest were more Wimpy than Hungry Jacks.

Joel MacDonald was with us at the end of 2009.

Oops - missed Dees in Oct post above.

Sorry - it was actually Springvale Rd and High St Rd Glen Waverley- that store you mentioned was built much later as it was a BP Petrol Station at that time. (I grew up in the area).

Yes, you're correct. I lived off High St in Malvern and remember hitching eastwards to Monash Uni down High St nearly 'all the way', turning right at McDonalds. That was a very long time ago. Anyway, thanks for the 'refresh'. :mellow:

I really hope we maintained a good relationship with Joel MacDonald when he left the club. The company he founded, GetSwift, last week announced a deal with Amazon and the shares skyrocketed. His personal wealth is now about $150 million. I'd like to see GetSwift as a sponsor of the club!
