  1. Nice argument. Well argued. I am from the "take your pick to the draft" belief and absolutely love new untried talent, but you are correct, especially with Melbourne (consider Jack Watts), we heap unrealistic pressure on them and they rarely deliver. You've got me almost agreeing with you but I love Oliver and I still am more than happy to go to the draft. As you say its my "belief system"
  2. If a good coach got hold of him ( hopefully ) in our system and set us up with Frost, Lever and May as the three talls I think it would work well. He has really developed his punch and has good closing speed. He has also become much more reliable. He has learnt this year to leave his opponent and help be the third man up as well. He had very good results against some very good footballers. He has had one and a half years in the senior team where he has gone way past Oscar and can be rightfully proud of this years output. Apart from his on-field dust up with May I think he understands better how we want him to play and for us there is an upside as he can develop further with confidence as a regular team member. If he goes elsewhere it will take him a while to settle in as he is unpredictable and will spook his new teammates at times. Much better for Frost if he stays, much better for us if he stays.
  3. Well I accept my comments were against the common flow of the thread and were over emotional but I get sick of most threads where a player looks like he might move and posters go "yes, yes, yes" without really thinking through the consequenses. I also accept that he is a better player than Ben Ken was but is he that much of an upgrade on Kent who had good potential but couldn't and still can't get on the park? We have spent the last three years "importing" talent and now as a result when Frost says "I've been the best defender this year, show me the money" we can't. Yet were throwing money at another "import". I certainly want success for the club but the last two years of getting in May and Lever for NO success I think may have caused rumblings within the group. Personally I think it might be time to pull our heads in and go to the draft and develop our own talent. Lastly the first two comments were just attacking me for having an opinion. pretty poor posts but Moonshadow I liked the humor, yeah I'm pretty .. no very boring when I talk footy, after all I barrack for Melbourne
  4. If we think getting Elliot is in any small way going to improve our side or be the answer to any of our woes then we really are in trouble. $600,000 for a bloke that will add about as much as Kennedy from the Pies did a few years ago, just stinks of desperation. Elliot isn't worth a pinch of s##t. The fact we've even attached our name to him means we are f##cked. We have no idea how to play money ball and we are gone, game over, forget it, walk away.
  5. Beautifully put. I couldn't believe during that whole time how we were the only club being hung out to dry. I actually liked the priority pick and the way the clubs managed to never win more than 4 games, or they would go on and win at least 7 or so. Not one team landed on 5 wins throughout the period of time there was a priority pick on offer. I hate how the priority pick is now at the discretion of the commission. Just corrupt. Why should those gooses get to choose. Play little tin pot gods. ###ck them. Either there is a formula that gives the club a priority pick or scrap it. This competition is getting less equal by the day.
  6. This is all very excellent from Gil. I'm sure just as he came out for those thousa..... hundreds of GWS supporters to make sure they kept their man he'll be feeling for all us MFC supporters and will go out of his way ( AFL approved extra cash for game development ambassador style role ) for our Petracca and now he's going to stay at Melbourne. Thanks Gil. A real peoples person. One for the supporters.
  7. Don't tell me we're going to lose Petracca. It'll probably end up being Langdon in and Petracca out. And no better off in the draft. Yeah great MFC. Just so long as we sign up ANB and JKH and Oscar and Stretch. Yeah well done. Hoorah. Can we sell some more home games as well so I don't have to turn up anymore.
  8. I'm not sure Petty will make it. but he us our back up tall. Definite no to Carlisle.
  9. No, no, please no. There are better options out there. He is not a good footballer, looks okay in a well drilled team. Knows when to lead etc. He would be an abject failure with our game plan. If we fix up our game plan you will know it because Weidemann will become a good player and all of a sudden worth what he was asking early this year. Put Weidemann in the Collingwood forward line and teach him the system, the leads etc, and he would become a star. Look what Stephenson did to us on Queens B'day. He would have kicked 10 if he kicked straight. Just a well drilled team who pantsed Goodwin with a game plan that isolated the quick Stephenson against one of our slow back-men. When considering a player you have to weigh up if they will fit into our system and Elliot would just get lost, then injured, like all the others who don't get given clear instructions. We are a rabble and it will take men with leadership qualities to right the ship. Elliot doesn;t have them.
  10. Yes, think Mitch Robinson now at Brisbane. I'm not sure he suits us as we have quite a few slowish brutish types but he would be a good pick-up for sure
  11. I feel sad that Jones has such a minor impact on games these days. He's been taken away from his normal 'in and under' role and has probably (with over a years evidence in front of us) gone backwards. I know Jonesey is a limited footballer but the coaches seem to want to highlight his weaknesses rather than his strengths. Gee it's a hard gig for a bloke like Jones to play wing, he's not super quick and his disposal although improved is nowhere near elite. He still wants to get the ball around the fifty and kick the inspirational goal, it's become his thing like Dunne kicking torps to no-one in particular from full-back. And yet I think he's only kicked a handful of goals all year. I mean what are the coaches doing. As a further contrast look at a bloke like Stephens who has obviously struggled but when given the right role showed emphatically he can still play. As for the captaincy, for mine, it should be one player only, dual Captaincy "out".
  12. "Success comes from within" surely you should know that with your name and avatar. Your not a fraud are you?
  13. Yes trade for sure. We need KPP intercepting backmen that cost a ***king bomb. Corner the market.
  14. Turn Tom Mac out for three weeks, send him North to dabble his toes in the Gold Coast surf and bring in Pruess. For gods sakes Goodwin we need to see what he can offer. Try to turn Stretch into a tagger. He is fit and can run well and his body, although not super strong, is just about fully mature. Otherwise he is lost to us. We need to make better players with the players we have got. Send Jack Viney with Tom Mac North for some rest and toe time in the gold coast waters, he's giving us nothing and the whole team balance is out with Jack and Jones in the same team. Send Spargo back to the VFL for the rest of the year and play him in the guts to try and toughen him up otherwise he is just going to become the whipping boy of Demonland which is really unfair for a young kid in his second year (some of you ought to be ashamed). Bring in JKH for a good 3 weeks and then lets see what we've got. I think he could be okay. Lockhart as well. Stop playing Fritsch back. He is a half forward flanker. Play him there Goodwin and be done with it, your ruining him.
  15. They're not fit enough. Salem has never been elite fit. His kick around the corner that went straight to Pendlebury then straight back in for a goal wouldn't have happened if he was fitter. It was lazy football. When you aren't fit you make bad decisions, you give up easier. Half Collingwoods team are in there because they are fit enough. Look at a bloke like Greenwood No-one could go with Hoskin-Elliot yesterday. Clarry and Max are fit and keep going all day. Get rid of Misson now and get in a good conditioning and fitness squad and I'm sure it will all turn around.
