  1. Something else i think worth mentioning is that the more changes that are made the more difficult it will be for the players to find the "cohesion" they so clearly lack atm.
  2. i agree, but it's not going to happen (Brown/2nd tall).
  3. I think vandenBerg is needed for tackling pressure. if vanders has to be dropped then ANB should come in. i want Jones in for his ball-use and accurate goal-kicking. I also think Fritsch and Hannan are too similiar — one or the other for mine.
  4. This ⇧. Lockhart was terrible. So was Hannan. Lockhart ⇨ Jetta. Hannan ⇨ Jones.
  5. A "Proud to Belong Guernsey" with Nev Jetta's number on it will some day be mine. A great idea from the club -- mementos are good.
  6. So I was a little off: they didn't so much give the world to Collingwood, as give us nothing. Same result though. I really am over this game. Incidentally, at the other end of the conspiracy theorist spectrum is naïvity.
  7. ...which is the actual reason why supporters yell "ball" and "fifty" and whatever else.
  8. I agree. They both have excellent skills and usually make very good decisions. These attributes could be vital against Collingwood. In concert with our awesome line-breakers in Hibberd and Hunt, our rebounds will be very damaging. Damn i'm happy to have Gus back!
  9. 6. Cameron Pedersen — Epic. Today he showed what a "utility" can do: everything! 5. Michael Hibberd 4. Nathan Jones 3. James Harmes 2. Tom McDonald 1. Jake Melksham
  10. Last year, when it looked like we were are real chance of making finals, facing Carlton in round 22, we lost the free kick count 5/20. Yeah... 400%. No team can overcome that. "No finals for you!" I unhappily predict that Collingwood in round 23 will get as many free kicks as they need to beat us. Why? Because Melbourne don't generate strong television ratings. "AFL" is a corporation selling an entertainment product. A few years ago (Hinkley's first year, i think) Port Adelaide were red hot and every chance to grab the flag. When they beat Collingwood in their first final, Gil said "that cost us a million dollars". The next week Port were put out by Hawthorn on the back of some truly outrageous umpiring (anyone remember those last few minutes? i do). I was a Juventus fan when Serie A exploded. It shocked me deeply. I denounced my team and fairly quickly lost interest in Football. It is well worth noting that the Serie A referees who were done for match fixing would never have gone as far as AFL umpires go week in week out. Our game has become deeply corrupted by its too-close relationships with television and gambling corporations. It's not hard to see... if you care to look.
  11. it happened right in front of me. Salem was penalised for "holding the man". i heard the umpire clearly.
  12. it's all about the hair. so long as Spencil keeps his wild-man hair-do he will be a gun. no doubt about it!
  13. yeah, nah. Big Spencil will hold his own. I believe!! and our mids need to fire every game.
  14. That's better. VFL standard at the moment. *being cheeky.
