  1. he is a baker, not a butcher!
  2. Most of the reason for the accuracy is most of the goals are from the goal line after getting out the back. Even against the hawks their goals early were largely the outnumber behind the footy, even though we have implemented a back stop, which has made us harder to score against in the past 3 games.
  3. Probably the best win by MFC in my lifetime, had no right to get within 10 goals after the two 15 goal thrashings the weeks before from the saints and Geelong. We got rolling after that win and were clearly the 2nd best side in the comp by seasons end, the best side North who knocked us out, lost to about the 5th side Adelaide in the GF though after kicking 2.12 in the 2nd quarter!! I fear that may have been our best chance for a flag in 98!
  4. Phil Gilbert! We did get Jeff White and the prince Scott Chisholm from Freo!
  5. Actually, if he is fat as everyone makes out, he should have floated!!
  6. The last team to win a Pink Lady game. Most of the team is long retired, sadly one no more. Godfrey did kick a goal, so it may have been the goal you refer to Praha. Led by 2 points at 3/4 time and won by 24 so spot on DZ! Adelaide from memory finished on top in 2005?
  7. Had forgotten about the original's almost got them a premiership with Goddard, Ball, Kosi and Riewoldt, plus the trade advantages to get Hamill, Gehrig, Powell etc...
  8. It was one of the original cause games so I do think it has a bit more meaning than most and knowing a number of BC survivors who attend it clearly has meaning for them and their family and friends. The country game on Sunday however (even though I lived in the country for the past 16 years) is proof of the never ending cause game!
  9. Haha, I agree every week there is a "cause" game. Save the Bilby can't be too far away and if Tassie get a side, it will be "Devil appreciation week" every week with the exception of "remember the tiger round"! I was more curious as we don't like to play in Pink (could argue we don't like playing much in red & blue either I guess!).
  10. I note that it's the Pink lady breast cancer awareness game again this week. Wonderful cause and not trying to denigrate the occasion, but has Melbourne ever won one of these games? I know we were close against the bulldogs in 2010 when the umpires wearing pink socks probably cost us the game and a couple of other times, but I don't remember us ever winning any of these matches? Just wondering if anyone can confirm if we have?
  11. Yeah I have used that also, but like yourself I've found just using the Vroom vroom site generally finds a cheaper alternative.
  12. Yep, agree they didn't play Holland and Hay but to the media this didn't happen, the kreuzer cup never happened and the fact Hawthorn got buddy and roughy was irrelevant. Collingwood tanking the last 9 games from memory in 2005 to get Thomas and Pendlebury never happened! They forget even our tanking to get Sylvia and Mclean in 2003. I wont even start with Carlton…. Only Scully and Trengove were obtained by tanking according to the media! Such tools I guess though some coaches have been near the bottom, irrespective of the approach and reason for being there and have still won a flag soon after. Collingwood only had 5 wins in 2005 also under Malthouse and were second last only a drawn game above Carlton, similar to the hawks that year.
  13. Haha, if your brave enough to admit it, here is a link to various discounts etc... including the sporting globe with MFC membership. I generally recoup most of the cost of membership from New Balance discounts! https://www.melbournefc.com.au/fans/offers/sponsor-offers Cheers
  14. Clarkson was .5 off the bottom in 2005. They only won 5 games that year, won the flag 3 years later!
