Round 17 Non MFC Games

Recommended Posts

I can see the Saints smashing Carlton tonight. Harry Mckay having a strong game, which just piles more pressure on Bolton.

Carlton are in a horrible state. Its so bad that it's not even amusing to make fun of their supporters anymore 😕

... and we've been there!

I reckon Walker will just get the 1 week.

Incident will be deemed as medium impact as the Geelong bloke came back on and didn't have concussion.

That’s what I was thinking unless he has some delayed concussion, MRP Always ban the outcome not the action 1 week at worst

Reminds me of our game against the Blues. Sitting with niece...an ardent Blue, during the last QTR she asked me if Melbourne could stop.She said it's not funny any more. I also conveyed...I knew that feeling.

Bolts is nutted.... walking dead.

Why the hell does Tom Hawkins smile and laugh so much after every goal he kicks? Bloody ridiculous, surely it's not that great an achievement Tommy

Was a very good game to watch last night.

Didn't seem to be over umpired and the game flowed. The break aways on the scoreboard followed by Geelong reeling it back added to the excitement in that it wasn't your classic arm wrestle where only a few points separate the teams.

Just wondering if anyone knows why it felt so open as a game? Was there a particular tactic or was it just luck.

Yep,

When a team is down, you expect to see the wheel turn, however it took a very long time for our club to turn things around, Carlton arguably are taking even longer than we did. Gold Coast and Brisbane similarly, although the Lions look ok in the next couple of years.

Free Agency has not helped the plight of supporters at the base of the ladder, one bit! But again it's not easy for the players to be smashed for so long either.

It's a key reasons why the MFC has to take on some opportunities with Free Agency (like Gaff etc) because they are the free hits that we get whilst we are seen as a destination club on the way up... and it's why your list managers are probably the most crucial member of the football dept.

Manipulation by umpires is why

23 years... 1964 to 1987... and

2006? (cannot remember but I think that was when we were last in the finals) until ???.

That's a long time by any measure

care to expand. I didn't really notice the umpires other than the strange free kick to Ablett in the centre.

I agree with your comment if we are measuring as 'ultimate success' i.e in terms of premierships. However if we are talking in terms of a team and their likelihood to front up to a game ... or a season and not have any hope except for the following seasons draft.... all supporters want a premiership, but we are sustained by watching our teams play week to week. Fronting up knowing that the odds see you getting flogged by the opposition .... sustained periods of that scars clubs and supporters! 

I haven't got a lot of doggies supporters as mates, but how would they feel at the moment, on one hand they got a premiership, but the success was so short lived that the premiership might actually feel bitter sweet. They are now seen as 'one hit wonders' and every subsequent season to that premiership has been deemed as a massive disappointment... and it's not like built towards a premiership at their peak, they fluked it on a 4-5 week hot streak!

FYI (Kardinia Park): I live 20km from this dump and refuse to attend our games there (every bloody year) on principal.

I have Platinum/Legends mship which gets me into all MCG and Etihad games.

But not K Park.

I go to all other Vic games and at least one interstate games each year. 

Our cheer squad get shafted - placed on a flank as seats behind the northern goal (non Cats cheer squad end) fetch a premium.

If you roll up and expect to get $25:GA you may be disappointed. Even though it won't be sold out they'll tell you that you need to pay $35 min. for a seat.

They treat opposition supporters with utter contempt.

Furthermore, night games can be dangerous for visiting supporters. Their supporters have spent all arvo in the pubs.

I urge all MFC suuporters to boycott this game.

Yeah that will help, let’s not turn up

Carlton by 27 tonight. 4 score reviews in which 2 will be incorrect. Charlie Curnow to dominate and kick 7. 

If you own a rent-a-crowd business, you’ve done well this week. 

Saints reduced tickets down to $13. Wait for an hour before the game and I'm sure you will be able to snap them up for $5. Bargain - maybe not. Yawnfest coming up.

I am very wary of foods in KL (seriously), 2 years ago i ate something whilst there, that gave me stomach cramps for 3 days and i needed 2 week long doses of antibiotics. 

Pity. Because KL is a cool city

That's a shame ..the food in Malaysia is pretty good but after a while you can get tired of it. The fresh produce is great value at the local markets.

Must say my favourite for Asian street food is Vietnam ... the flavours are so wonderful.

If want to live on the wild side try India ... have been there a few times now and lived on the street food without problems. Mind you sitting in the gutter watching the pigs scavenge nearby as you munch on your puri can be a little off putting for newcomers 😎

West coast $2.50 to beat the pies with Kennedy and darling back seems very good odds

Taylor Walker only gets a week suspension. A bit light.

Of course he did.   They had to have him back to play us.
