  1. Today
  2. Geez........... who can imagine Robbie on a wing in our 2020 team ?. I remember so vividly watching Flower carving up a wing the "G" when i was a teenager. I loved how the crowd reacted whenever he got the ball..... "Robbieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee". This is what we miss most nowadays... a player who makes the crowd go nuts when he has the ball. We were not a great side then, and havent been for a long time, but thinking of that still gives me chills. Im going to be off my face and full of tears if we win a flag before i die. GO DEES!!!!!!
  3. Making the grand final is the reason they can afford to draft for need rather than best available, because Green will really have to be as good as Cripps to get a game over the next 3 years stuck behind Ward, Coniglio, Hopper, Taranto, Kelly, De Boer, Greene, Williams, Whitfield, Caldwell etc. And even then is he really making them better? If they don't match they'd have to be confident that whoever they take at 6 is super highly rated as well and if that's Young then there's your Heath Shaw replacement within a year or 2 and a major addition to the side. If it's Jackson then all of a sudden they've got a young ruck to play for a decade alongside the best midfield in the league.

    Not having his go-to guy would have made a difference. George Kittle is becoming to Jimmy G what Gronk was to Brady
  5. He told Mike Sheahan it would have been ‘doubtful’ on Open Mike. It’s the second or third question of the episode.
  6. The way i see it. If the club believes his addition to our squad will lead to sustained success over the next 5 years and its discussed with our leadership who agree as it will hit their hop pocket, then admin should then rearrange contracts and get him. We know his price and if his talent is worth that price we pay it, if not we can still say in public we think that price is fine and we are keen to get him onboard, just annoy the Blues . His contract over 5 years is not huge once you take care of the first year,
  7. FB: Jetta - May - Lever HB: Salem - McDonald - Hibberd MID: Langdon - Viney - Tomlinson HF: Petracca - McDonald - Bennell FF: Melksham - Weideman - Fritsch R: Gawn - Oliver - Harmes INT: Brayshaw - Petty - Young - Hunt Depth: Sparrow - Lockhart - Pruess - Baker - Smith - Vandenberg - Hannah - Pick 8 - preseason draft pick 2 With all the doom and gloom that came with the 2019 season, I genuinely think that this club can take a huge step forward this year if we have a solid pre season with a healthy list. Ive been a bit optimistic with my 22 (including Bennell and young before they’ve been picked up and weideman still unproven). This was just to show how good our side can look with a bit of luck and good health. It’s easy to forget how well a lot of these players played in 2018. I am very excited for this season.
  8. If we'd have made it through to the granny in 87, he would've played. He was emphatically on record with this.
  9. There has been none better for the MFC ever since Robbie. And dare i say only a handful before him. Dad turned up to every game during the dark 70's and 80's years. The only reason he did was to go and watch Robbie play. Unfortunately i was too young to remember. God we could do with him in the team now.
  10. Nice clips boys but here's 16 minutes of brilliance. Note he kicked 5goals in the elim including a trade mark hanger and another 4goals in the semi final before getting his collarbone busted in the prelim and then retiring. If anyone should have been nursed to 300games it should have been this legend.
  11. I used to know a guy with only one thumb and 3 fingers for both hands and no toes. Wore tiny kid size boots. He was one of the best high school footballers I had seen and even Hawthorn recruiters admired him. Despite his disability he was also one of the hardest footballers I have seen.
  12. Definitely nominate Green at pick 3. Force GWS to pay for this super talented youngster. If they don’t match? Dees will have picked up probably the best player in the draft as he certainly right up there with Anderson and Rowell.
  13. Just as well he got the new contract done last week. If he tried to do it now he'd have trouble signing AND counting it.
  14. As Bernie Quinlan said at Robbie's memorial service at the MCG: "If we can't have a statue of Robbie Flower here, there's something wrong." https://www.afl.com.au/news/2014-10-13/footy-greats-farewell-demon-legend-robbie-flower
  15. Green looks to have a great left foot. Hope GWS pass him up and we take him. He looks a certainty to be at least a good AFL player.
  16. Stephens highlights remind me of Lord Voldemort.

    Definitely thought the tie was on the cards, would've been a fitting result. I felt Garoppolo didn't seem overly confident stepping up into the pocket & had a lot of off throws, lucky he wasn't picked off a few other times not all his fault but. 49ers were due not too many sides last this long unbeaten
  18. For me Moonie it’s not a case of is he more of an inside or outside player, but that he’s is a player that wants to take the game on and takes ownership of it. We’ve had players in recent years that pass off when running inside fifty rather than take the shot, team rule or afraid of missing? Players having set shots on goal, twenty to thirty metres out with little angle, trying to kick around their body only to miss. It’s almost as if some players don’t want the responsibility.

    Jimmy G made some big mistakes in the second half with Sanders off, was high, should have been picked multiple times but in saying that, his own players dropped a few of his passes. He is essentially one season into his on field career, next two months will be telling for the niners and JG. Cracking game to watch, but f&dk me I hate them both 😂
  20. Just to be safe you better get there an hour early at 3:30am.
  21. I very much doubt Cochrane will play funny buggers with the AFL after being given the most generous of handouts. The whole thing has probably been orchestrated this way.

    A tie might have been a more fitting result as there was nothing between the 2 sides in a riotous affair. I thought Garoppolo was reasonably good without being outstanding. He's had better games this year though so there's upside. Both QB's were about as good as each other today. Whoever had the ball last ultimately won the game so the Niners were a tad unlucky. The Packers go to San Francisco in 2 weeks time and that result will have ramifications with the Vikings & Seattle looming large in each respective division.
  23. He should really be kept out of Harmes way.
