  1. Buy shares in this mob guys, Zoono. (ZNO ASX). Expected to announce soon that their products which are being tested in Germany, have been found to be effective against this strain of the Corona virus.
  2. Totally agree. OMac looked quite lost and I don't know what has happened to Hibberd but he is a shadow of his 2018 form. Given that, he is on form, a best 22 player. We have a deep list now so competition for spots will be fierce. I think OMac, ANB, the Wagners, Sparrow, Jordan, Bedford, Baker, Hannan, Rivers, Dunkley, Hunt, Spargo, Preuss, Chandler and Bradtke will be support players with a few staring down the barrel of a de-listing/trade. Having said that, I hope a few can prove me wrong particularly Dunkley, Sparrow, Jordan and Hunt. I have read the many comments about Petracca's game and yes, it was a practice match but he looked a class above. The one thing that stood out to me was that the smiling, I-wanna-be-everybody's-mate persona seems to have been replaced by steely determination. The boy has finally become the man. Lets sit back and enjoy the show.

  4. I dunno. Depends on my skill set I imagine.
  5. Is it just me or are there others who thought that Harley was not entirely convincing? Perhaps it was just his personality coming through? Having said that, when on song, the bloke is a gun footballer. I am praying to the footy Gods that he rises to the challenge and puts past issues way behind him. Players with his skill set don't come along too often. Particularly not for free.
  6. A brief history will be fine Chook.
  7. First name I thought of when I saw the thread title adc!
  8. A fully fit list to pick from every week.
  9. Alan Jarrott in for Bizzell.
  10. If it's on the Sunday, it will be the first I've missed since the Maroochydore camp began. Damn it!
  11. Touch of Little Britain's politician based sketch about it.... "After a tough and stressful day at the Club, I decided to take a relaxing drive home. Clearly distracted, I found myself in an industrial area near Dandenong where I had a chance encounter with a chap named Wheezy........"
  12. I think you mean “reckless”. Punching someone in the face or gouging their eyes doesn’t make a player tough. Sniping behind the play isn’t tough. Getting reported isn’t tough, it’s reckless stupidity. As for being hard, Jack V, May, Melksham and Oliver are “hard” players. Nate Jones, Jetta and Gus are not afraid of putting their bodies on the line. That’s toughness.
  13. Unfortunately, he wasn't anyone's boy except his own.
  14. Class act is Jake Lever. Captain material. Will repay us big time.
  15. I want too see big Mummy in perhaps his last game, run straight through Martin, Cotchin and a few others early on. I am sure that would frighten the bejesus out of many of their team mates. In fact if I was Leon Cameron I’d have Mummy talking to the media about his intentions right now! Remember Dusty giving Mummy a snort gesture earlier in the year? It’s payback time. The Bunyip Banger is looking for you Dusty! Good luck!
  16. Nail on head ET. I have it on very good authority that more than one umpire checks the stat count on the AFL website before voting. I know he was ineligible but Dylan Grimes 3 votes? Best defender in the competition IMHO. Stats are a false indicator of effectiveness. The mark of a defender is not how many times they get the footy but how many times their opponent doesn't get it.
  17. Don’t know if it is the Macs but I understand 2 players want out and a 3rd is leaning that way.
  18. After 53 years of following this club I felt like something died in me last night. That was simply insipid. For years, the highlight of my weeks during Winter has been watching the Dees play wherever I may have been in the world. If you guys only knew the lengths I have gone to to not miss a MFC game! At times, it’s cost me a small fortune. I woke this morning with the realisation that I just can’t handle the disappointment any more. It’s too effing demoralising. For now at least, I will step back and concentrate my valuable time on other things and avoid anything football related for as long as I can. I won’t be renewing my membership in 2020 which has stunned my family but my decision is made. If I don’t post again, thanks guys for the humour, fellowship and debate. Take care. PD
  19. Personal pride and the jumper I guess? Oh, and to justify the ton of money you’re getting paid to be a pro sportsman. Maybe it’s about time match payments related to output?
  20. Yeah Dazzle. Clearly played a lot of footy himself and has a solid knowledge of the game....🙄
  21. I see one hero has put the boot into young Dunkley. Gimme a break! Brought onto an AFL list half way through the season at 18 years of age and playing senior footy already. The same 2L also baked Petty. Lot of upside in that young fella.
