Only thing that can stop us is injuries.

Its our 20th year anniversary of that great comeback of 1998.

We need to make finals this year and win at least one. For me that would at least partially make up for missing finals last year. We were cooked last year and would have got flogged in the finals, so finals and a win is a must!

Even listening to a few of our injuries, think we are better placed to cover them, and make finals!

I am certain I read an analysis that showed that, statistically, we were far, far worse between 2008-2016 than we were throughout the 70s.

Without GWS, and if you include having finished equal last on wins with the Saints in 2014, we would have "won" 4 wooden spoons over a 9 year period.

I recall at least 3 or maybe 4 years in the 70s when we won 4 games or less out of 22 in a comp of 12 teams. They were also different times where there was no TV coverage of lowly clubs, just to add to the humiliation. 

Losing repeatedly twice a year to some pretty ordinary mid tier teams felt far more debilitating than being one of 2 or 3 clubs out of 18 that has struggled. 

Naturally l agree that both periods were dark years for the club. I suppose the recency effect makes the more current experience more memorable. 

Also Unlike today, you got no draft pick "rewards" by finishing last. You simply finished last.

Yeah but that debacle against Fitzroy. Not even our Geelong embarrassment topped that.

$3-4 million of extra spending inside our footy department should solve that problem.

Barring a shocking run with injuries if we don't make finals this year, I think President, CEO and Coach will all be under massive pressure.

And so they should be ... we cannot accept mediocrity as it has appeared so often. Radical change is what we must be striving for every season and the Club officials have been responsible for these outcomes. I'd like to entice Paul Roos back to the Club as coach, ASAP.

President and CEO, doubtful. Coaching team, sure. PJ has worked magic. You can't understate how bad a position the club was in when he arrived. We had actually taken a step back from the days of Dimetrouhsbjwkcjshs saying our "brand is worthless". How the hell do you fall *backwards* from being worthless?

We have to expect to make finals every year, that’s the base line for any power club. 

When these clubs don’t make finals it is seen as an aberration that must be addressed quickly. 

For too long The MFC has focused on survival 

In 1965 the Tigers stepped on to the MCG and we slowly stepped back. 

Time to reclaim Demon land rights

Return of the Roos? - Good name for the campaign. May the force be with you.

Since football makes more money than cricket there, let us stay there. Or else see how they survive without us

MELBOURNE finished 4th in this years JLT comp and Richmond finished 4th last year, so I take that as the 2018 flag is ours.

And we won an AFLX premiership, making us the greatest top 4 preseason team ever. 

 

But i digress from the fascinating stat of what we do in 10 year blocks.
