  1. Spargo? Really? For mine, won’t make the grade. Was fair when the team was playing well last season but very ordinary this year. I have concerns over Weideman’s future with us. Hasn’t put in at all in the few games he has played this year after looking like our saviour against Geelong in the Elimination Final last year. I don’t mind Tim Smith but The Weed has it all over him in terms of potential. Have fat Eddie and his cronies been in his ear? Do Goody and the boys know something we don’t? There was that ridiculous $650k contract talk In April shortly after which he is back at Casey. He is apparently not injured so should be our FF.
  2. Sorry Kyle. You probably deserved a bit better that us mate. Not even an hour into your MFC career and some of these so called “supporters” labelling you already. Good luck son.
  3. Come on. At least 6 of our injured would get a game at any other club. That’s more than a quarter of the team, all A Graders, not playing. Chop a leg off a racehorse and see how it goes.
  4. “Obliterated”? Ah well. I guess I will just take my enjoyment from my backyard bbq lunch and a cold beer or three in the glorious 26 degree Brisbane weather then? Days like this serve to remind me why I moved up here.
  5. I feel quite optimistic today. We played our best football of the season last game in some brilliant passages. If a few more handballs stick to their targets and the goal kicking is fine tuned, absolutely we can win this. We should have beaten last years premiers relatively easily last week in the city with the biggest home game advantage in the comp. Back home, we can put the GWS “Gunna Win Soons” to the demon sword.
  6. Thanks mate. You are indeed most welcome. Appreciate your support. 👍😂
  7. These blokes are paid to kick the football for a living and surrounded by others who are paid to coach them. The first consideration in solving any problem is identifying it. If a couple of hundred of us armchair critics on Demonland can see it, why can’t the “professionals”? As an aside, Christian still has that self-anointed superstar persona yet to be knocked out of him and FCS keep him away from red cordial.
  8. The leaderboard sadly highlights the form of TMac and Petracca. A total of 6 votes between them which is equal to Jay Lockhart’s total and 20 behind Marty Hore, both first players.
  9. Errrr... it’s “You’re”, “Hawthorn” and “we’re”. Guess English grammar isn’t taught in Grade 4 in Panama? Maybe get mum to help.
  10. Watching Cats v Dogs. Tuohy just kicked in from FB. Didn’t play on. OOB without being touched. Nobody even near it .....THROW IN! That sums up the competency of umpiring at the moment.
  11. Point taken but the “higher standards” don’t necessarily have to be from his team mates. Players can rise to the standards set by the opposition also.
  12. I played footy for a club (many years ago) and there was a guy in the twos who played in the BP. He was a reasonable, steady footballer who was never outstanding. He'd played in the twos for about 2 years when we realised that we were going to have a late "out" in the senior game one Saturday so put him on the bench. Well, he came on late in the first quarter off a half back flank and was very, very good. He never left the senior side after that and even ran 4th in the comp B & F a few years later. The point I am trying to make is that there are some players who play better when the players around them and the standards of the game are higher. They rise to that level when the opportunity arises. I reckon Oskar may be one of those.
  13. For me, it seems to have merely taken some of a coaches tactical options right away and replaced those with an awful, game changing he-who-must-be-obeyed type law. I fail to see how it has improved the game and from my perspective, has made the game less interesting. This seems to be a classic case of changing something because those that have the power to do so, can. It hasn’t improved the game one iota.
  14. Ya think? Thanks for that golden snippet of what is clearly highly confidential insider information......
  15. Spine: Hale Pace Morecambe Wise B. Hill then we could justify calling our team a bloody joke.
  16. I tend to agree unfortunately. I have a feeling this might end badly for us. The words of an old boss of mine keep ringing in my ears: "nobody ever gets caught first time".
  17. Apparent minor offence, likely common assault. If the offender has been released following interview pending a summons that tells me:that he has no criminal history for similar offences (or he would have been bailed). He will receive a good behaviour bond. This type of behaviour happens numerous times over any given weekend right around the country. Fools turn into “Beeroes” after a gutful of grog and want to punch somebody else. If that outrages you, I’d like to see the response to something serious like murder, rape, armed robbery, child sex offences, drug importation and multiple fatality vehicle collisions. Save the “outrage” for the victims of the low life’s that commit or cause those incidents.
  18. Putting Oscar in with ANB in the team leaves us a man short. They only have half a football brain each.
  19. If Brown was at Collingwood/Giants/Geelong he'd be near on kicking 100 goals a season. As Petraccattack said, we don't have anyone, (except Salem) who can deliver it as he requires it - out in front whilst on the lead. We actually HAVE competent forwards but they are either completely bereft of confidence, still nursing pre-season niggles or both. Garbage incoming disposal hasn't helped either. Petracca for example, has the skill set to be our DeGoey but lacks the commitment, confidence and focus to carry out that role.
  20. Wow. All I can hear in here is crickets. No probs. Big mail on a roughie first up in Brisbane. I’ll hang on to it then! I have backed it at $34 but it’s in to $21 now.
  21. I like pretty much all of your suggestions d-t. The only change I would make is Hunt to a back pocket where he can run in straight lines and use his speed to move the ball more quickly from defence.
  22. You are correct. Serious dissatisfaction with one coach in particular.
