  1. ??? This make no sense. All capital cities have fluoride and it is monitored to be at levels too low to affect brain function. Apart from that his statement was only a little off the mark and made a lot of sense on some questions.
  2. The Harmes deal is testament to the hard work and loyalty that the player has put in. If he plays out the contract and he shows no sign of being fragile, it could well be great value for money for what his type of player is worth in 5 years. I think Harmes would be a great choice of captain because he came up through the ranks and earned his place. There is no need to put extra leadership pressure on Max, he already has a high media profile and mumbles his opinion at every chance anyway, he is already a leader on the field. I am sure that May will not play out his contract and is on much more money. Leaver is younger and will be better value. The May-KK deal is very poor list management.
  3. Our window is closed with these numpties running the MFC. Tomlinson was the worst player in the GF and has struggled to be in the best 22 all year. He is only OK at a few things but not great anything. Offering Frost, our best defender, more money would have been better value. Elliot is fragile and overpriced we would get better value out of Butler. Langdon is OK but not top tier and won't make up the difference for the team to be successful. There are about ten players at Freo I would rather target. May is an overpriced spud that no other team was gullible enough to want, yet he is the most secure player on our list. MFC is stuffed. Everybody sees Melbourne coming.
  4. An interesting analysis. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-28/the-data-says-afl-grand-final-might-be-closer-than-you-think/11549510
  5. It is essential when you have a coach with little coaching experience and who seems out of his depth on gamedays. As I understand it Goodwin's main job is to deal with the media so it does not interfere with the football department.
  6. I would not build false hope, at this point there is nothing to write about. I don't usually read them, my issue is why are they paid to be written in the first place. I do not see a positive from them. Why does Demonland promote them at all? Is it just for those desperates that have blind faith that we can win a GF in the preseason?
  7. really sick of the BS the propaganda arm of the MFC churns out. AVB is over his injuries, Preuss can be an effective forward, Brayshaw better for a poor year, Goodwin can do the job.. etc The only heads that roll are the ones that we can afford to get rid of. They should start with the hyperbole riddled publicity department. Not worth reading until the team get on the field next season and prove something. The team is not helped by believing the BS and the expectation puts more pressure on them and makes supporter disappointment worse. Just shut up and get on with the job, we will all see the results.
  8. I have many times and I can not see the MFC being successful with his guidance.
  9. More proof of why Lyon never had a successful career as a coach. He does not read the play or players very well. Both of these players would cost too much. We need to use pick 2.
  10. Overpriced is a telltale yardstick when judging list management, which is the question you asked. Is this your attempt to be confused and rude? Our window is shut and we need a careful rebuild. Our back-line zone is weak, one dimensional and unaccountable.
  11. Tomlinson will be overpriced at least $600,000 + a year. For that sort of money I would rather keep Frost and pick up a hungry prospect. Pruess is ordinary and was overpriced and only insurance, Vandenberg was signed for 3 years and has not played a game since. May and KK were overpriced. Nobody is enough of a sucker to want May. May is the most secure player on our list and he is getting old and struggles to get out there. Our captains do not lead by example anymore. Viney is no longer a first string midfielder and struggles in any other position. Jones is getting older and slower and will have a season next year like Lewis had this year finishing at Casey. We have no balance in our midfield and are top heavy with in and under types. We have no balance in our back-line with too many intercept defenders and only Frost who can make a defender accountable one on one. Our defensive zone sucked last year and was easily beaten. We are short of run through the midfield and wings. Lever has been overpriced for his efforts so far but at least can play if he is fit.
  12. To lose Frost would be another example of appalling list management. Frost was our best and most consistent defender last year. I notice that nobody is interested in poaching May or O Mac unfortunately. We are going to have to put up all next year with the excuses of players getting use to the new coaching staff and game plan. Tomlinson is more of what we have heaps of and only really insurance if May and Leaver are as productive as they were this season. Tomlinson is overpriced, a waste of money and will not solve anything. This team will need a rebuild after a poor season next year. MFC is stuffed.
  13. The fact that Hawthorn want him is enough reason to keep Frost. Last year, we had the worst draft-trade period in living memory. We generally don't get our draft picks right and our mature recruiting is pitiful. Hawthorn may be the best at these things going around.
  14. I agree Max would be better to concentrate on his more important job of ruck and should be in the leadership group. Max will talk lots in the media anyway and offer his opinion at every chance, like he did this year. I think someone a bit blue collar with a good work ethic like Harmes would be a better choice for captain. Don't want to see May, Leaver or Jetta in the leadership group because they struggle to get on the park and do not lead by example. Leadership group should be guys like Salem, Frost, Petracca, Brayshaw and anyone who stepped up in a poor year on the field. We have had strong leaders and that did not work and they did not rise to the challenges this year. Jones will have a year like Lewis had this year and Viney is no longer a first string midfielder and needs to show more versatility if he is going to be a help and hold his place.
