  1. i was trying to point out that some people take more offence to abuse that is directed towards you that attacks your personal or physical features, this could include being bald, overweight, skin colour, big nose or what ever, now i am only guessing that the umpire would of got a lot more offended being called a bald pouf more so than being called a yellow maggot,
  2. is it just me or do we have way too many hbf and bp hibbo, salem, lewis, jetta, stretch, j wagner, Jordon, lever, petty, kk, hore, nietchke, fritz and now jones melk, maynard, hunt, baker and j smith also have played there and I would also say omac is more a hbf than a fb that is a starting 18 with 2 on the bench, side full of HALF BACK FLANKERS
  3. look at the top sides they all have good small forwards, we have 1, who now struggles with injury and form RICH won it with 3 genuine small forwards and have since recruited even more that year they played ADE in gf who had E BETTS and C CAMERON in their side WC won it with W RIOLI , J CRIPPS and L RYAN COLL have J DEGOEY, J STEPHESON( more medium size but have same skills and leg speed) J ELLIOT GEE have this year added G MIERS, and plonked non other than G ABLETT with him and now sit on top of ladder GIANTS not so much but still have T GREEN HAWKS had C RIOLI, L BRUST, P POPPY in their prime in their good years M WALTERS and J CAMERON have both had outstanding years and have helped lift their sides up the ladder this year last time MELB played off in a GF in 2000 we had J FARMER who kicked 76 goals that year and won AA Now look to the bottom half of the ladder and there are not as many good small forwards among the bottom 10 teams (except maybe ess , tippa and fanta) though I do like Gresham, Brust and papley So while I understand we also lack in other positions, but can we PLEASE draft or trade for some ready made SMALL FORWARDS who kick goals
  4. this is exactly what we need to do DeeSpencer , you are so on the money here look what geelong bought in speed, small forwards, goal kickers lets just say we draft a rozzee, stephenson type with our first pick a willie rioli or liam ryan type with our second or third bring in a free agent like a Jamie Elliot, coniglio we wish trade in some leg speed, outside types like Langdon , tippa, all of a sudden we are quicker, less predictable, have some xfactor, and different ways to score GOALS a jeff farmer type player would be perfect
  5. most umpires couldn't give a stuff about being called a maggot, d head, idiot, [censored], ect, its when it gets personal is when it goes to far, not just umpires, anybody really, shouting abuse referencing someone's physical features is nasty and can upset some people, being called a bald poof, if that what was said, can have the same affect on someone who is racially abused
  6. why not, if he committed, 1 yr contract on a performance based salary, he would solve our second ruck problem, get the boys to get around him a bit, and just let him play, no big contract pressure, you play well you get rewarded, if it don't work out so be it, invest little for a potential high reward,
  7. this is a disrespectful thread, calling a young man who tries his guts out for his club a potato, the worst player in the league, is weak as pis, while I admit he is out of form, there is no need for these insulting untrue comments, give the bloke a chance, let him try find some form in the vfl, give him a go up forward, bulk him up a bit, he has played some good games and has shown ability at times, you are not the worst player in the league if you have played 70 odd games of afl football and still only 23 yo.
  8. a quick classy small crumbing forward is more of a need imo
  9. they all go up for a mark, spoil each other, have no crumbers at feet of packs, run into each others space, dont put themselves into dangerous spots or help the ball carrier. whats jeff farmer doing give him a job who is our forward coach?
  10. can someone please teach these blokes how to crumb off a pack, garry lyon mentioned it and i have noticed all year and it is getting worse front and square ffs
  11. we need speed, x factor, goal scoring ability, crumbing ability according to footywire out of contract 1. tippa ess 2. jamie elliot coll surely we will make a play peter wright, also ooc
  12. tipa or jamie elliot, surely we make a play at one or both of these blokes, both (i think) ooc, even if we dont get one it would keep both of our arch enemies honest
  13. Spot on, and is one of many problems we have, surely one of or both of chandler and garlett come in. We lack crumbing skills in back half as well, as soon as ball comes off a pack, it is grabbed by a opposition player
  14. Give keilty a go, at least he gives us options Play petracca, from goal square
