  1. May trade ...shocker??? Interesting to hear why...hmmmm
  2. Anzac Day & QB’s are ours so didn’t have that financial bonus in 2019 ??
  3. If you honestly believe that ...you are stating that the club you support is both dishonest & morally corrupt...god help us if we don’t have a good 2020...I can’t even begin to think of the the vitriol that will be posted 😩
  4. Absolutely...I am confident of next year & regard my membership as just a way of supporting the club I choose to follow ...unfortunately in life sometimes things don’t go the way you wish but I could never support another club
  5. What it says to me is that our club is an attractive proposition to someone who could basically go anywhere. Please don’t say he’s coming because of $... you have to have passion & belief in the club you are coming to. He would have been made aware of what happened pre-season & must obviously see & understand what has actually happened with our playing list . Whether we like it or not ...we will never be privy to all that has gone on & I am fine with that but appointments like this tell me that the club is working very hard to give us credibility & stability for the future.
  6. Hannan spent half the season out...can’t believe that Garlett played worse than last year...Spargo hopefully second year blues...McDonald well documented & ANB a front runner...good when the team is good. No earth shattering news there.
  7. Venders has basically had his heel rebuilt...can’t pin this on Misson ...no one can predict how any injury will stand up to the rigours of AFL football. Vanders literally doesn’t walk a step more than what he is told to. Because of the nature of the injury I worry we won’t see him again which will be a tragedy not only for Vanders but also for the MFC. Clubs take punts on players because if they come off ...it’s a big win. Right now you have Hogan with his foot ...done, Kent with a quad...done, Tyson with a calf & other injuries...Ben Reid ...gone again ...& there’s plenty more. I for one don’t regret re-signing Vanders & hope we see him at some stage in the red & the blue !
  8. What an amazingly insensitive post...no wonder Sam went to some dark places if he was reading this type of thing !!
  9. Sigh...such predictable negativity...I would imagine they would completely understand the vagaries of Business ...matters that are sometimes just out of your control no matter how smart you are or how much talent you have ...I’m sure they can see the bigger picture ...to quote an oldie but a goodie ...”Rome wasn’t built in a day “ !
  10. In a prelim final...i saw in person our team get thrashed and humiliated. Tonight on the couch I saw a very young team who pretty much had travelled from the Gold Coast with a stop over in Melb to pick up a few players head onto Perth and play 6 days later. With most predictions of thrashing’s and mental scarring ...we got a team that played three and a half quarters, but inexperience and lack of class just showed in the end. We were by far the better team and I was pretty happy with Petty and Baker ...the continued form of Lockhart and Hore, def Max’s best game and also thought Brayshaw, Oliver, Hunt, Harmes and T McDonald continued to also improve. Frost and O McDonald were def not disgraced and others that are probably not best 22 but because of injury are in the team....were probably the difference between winning and losing. If we hadn’t had such a bad start to the season we would have probably been quite happy with the result. There were some appalling umpiring decisions and some appalling shots on goals but whilst i am extremely disappointed I am also extremely excited. ou
  11. Possibly still recovering from preseason major ankle surgery & problems with knee ? Like many of our players he is having his preseason in the season
  12. I spent over $2000 to watch the prelim final ...get over your self ...I don’t regret a cent ...first game ...always going to be up against after our preseason...21 more games to go !!!
  13. It is a game we should and will win. However I envisage the way the team plays this Saturday will be far different 5 or so games into the season. Suspect we will be a bit rusty and may take a few rounds to run into form and settle the team down. May will be another inclusion next week and as per Lever when he first came in, will take awhile to settle into our back line structure. In saying all that, we are a very good team and would rather have us playing our top footy later in the season. I’ll take any type of win in the first part of the season.
  14. That is factually correct & not a rumour
  15. He has only played 8 AFL games...give him a season training & playing with Max & I think we will see why
  16. I did ...sorry...should have just agreed with you !!
  17. It definitely is not a coincidence....
  18. Scarf is cool ....sort of a hexagonal stripe & 2 logos ...
  19. Paid for 2 Trident memberships...received Membership packs but no cards. Apparently they tried to get a lot out by xmas & it was a “bit of a stuff up”
  20. Very well written post ...I enjoyed reading it ...you will forgive me however if I value the opinions of people involved now with a plethora of medical expertise at their fingertips etc....but hey ..as everybody says ...it’s an opinion based forum...I will be extremely surprised if at least 90% of those rehab players are not available by Rnd 1 ....we shall see . On a sad note ...Sam Docherty has just done his ACL again....tragedy !!!!
  21. Actually have listened to quite a few expert opinions from AFL fitness gurus off season & they would probably disagree with you ....if they are not getting the running into their legs then you have a valid point so Lever will be def having an “interrupted pre season “ but other than that and as most are players with 3 or more preseasons under their belts ...we are not looking too bad...I am happy to take the opinions of posters that are actually at training & will reserve my judgement until I see the players “up close & personal” ...until then I can’t see the point in continually deriding certain posters ...I mean what is the point ....don’t read them or get down to training yourself & post your “first hand” opinions...just saying !!!
  22. JH has considerable issues & that is a fact. Considerable issues. As has been mentioned several times ...what he has had to face as a very young man ....completely understandable so no criticism there... whether he achieves his enormous potential at Freo...we will see. I only wish him well but the MFC are here & now so as much as I hate losing such a unique talent...we will be fine without him. I have a quiet snigger ...when he was at Melb ...always the “go back to Freo” issue & “don’t need him with the emergence of Weid etc & plenty of criticism about his attitude..kicking etc .. now he’s at Freo....”the salvation of the Freo footy club ” I think it is a “win win” for both clubs ...only time will tell who did the better. I thank him for what he bought to the MFC & unlike the defection of Scully”, I will move on pretty quickly & acknowledge the classy way MFC dealt with this .
  23. Spot on....there are a lot of people close to Jessie who wished he was staying in Melb....however I wish him well as he has gone through so much as a young man, but I am SO glad Melb did the deal.
  24. Might be a reality check for Hogan ..he wanted to explore his options ..we ok’d it & explained how we would use the picks we got for him ..Freo didn’t value him enough ...I now feel whatever happens in the future ...he doesn’t hold all the cards !!
  25. I remember posting re Balic (who had lived with Bennell ) that we should stay away from Balic ...shot down in flames on here & where’s Balic now ...absolutely don’t touch Bennell !!
