OT... you’re obviously not a member of the Biddles Bird Watchers Society if you can’t tell the difference between a Swallow and a Sparrow 😁

Was it a European or African Swallow?

That footy IQ improvement would be a wondrous thing, given the great team that we have now. It really lends itself to a staggering improvement across the field in teamplay and anticipation - both giving good despatches of the ball and getting to where the ball is received. 

Hi Deemns56... watts the bid deal with high IQ... we've had that before, and jettisoned some of IT...

You know, Steven Hawking would have been a lousy AFL player.   I am happy with the likes of ANB & Harmes running amok... and even Peussy playing hard up forward.

Nibbler just tweaked, just checked and strapped it, no issue

JKH just rolled his ankle

Both finished the session

My ingrained pessimism (gained from following MFC since the glory years) had me gasping with resigned horror as I quickly read this as “finished for the season”! 😧👹

Depends upon the size and weight of the coconut.

I think you are misreading 'Deemania's' post.

He said nothing of high IQ, he's talking footy IQ...

Footy IQ is the ability to get where the ball is, to be able to use it when you get it, to use your positioning to assist a teammate , to block opponents, to create opportunity.

...for Pruessy to play hard up forward he will need the footy IQ to position himself, to crash the pack at the right time so as not to give away the free or interfere with a teammate in a good marking position.

Oliver may not be a card carrying member of Mensa but he has a very high footy IQ.

It's an invaluable attribute.

Yes, thanks rjay, that is the thematic that I was attempting to impart.

Partially with you on this, but it is not referring to '...intelligence...' so much but moreso, footy ' clevers ' that assist a higher frequency and quality of gameplay opportunities. Then again, I can recall some super minds that used these aptitudes to make consistently good decisions onfield: Mike Fitzpatrick, Brent Crosswell, Allen Aylett, Beazley, Parkin, .... .... ....

thanks guys... Nah, I understood...  but I made a tangent back to where we've recently been...  to have a smite at some high IQ,  high maintenance players... who WE transported off to another place.

'IQ',  is not replacement for commitment, dedication and plain hard work.  just ask godfrey.  the hard worker... when others wanted to be traffic cops,  or generals, or pick and choose when to 'go',  and when to lye down on the ground.

 

... someone recently said something about, the  "NoN-Negotiables"  in Footy...   and that person is of High 'IQ'.

and one of the greats.

Merry Xmas to young Christian.  and come back to work your butt off, boyo.  literally_

Unsure where to put this query and apologies if it has been answered but do we know what is up with Angus and lack of siting on the trackl. Article on the MFC website today about the traditional Brayshaw brothers 100 x 100s on Xmas day but he mentions he cant participate this year but does not state why. It kind of made no sense to do an article about something he is not doing this year but anyway....

Only bit of info I can get is that it is back related 

When I have watched him run, didn't seem hindered

If back is true, like foot injuries, they take no chances

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new Football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.  The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
