  1. Brown will play between 22 and 26 games for us this year.
  2. Langdon streaming down the wing? I like to see that.
  3. Rivers will be a seriously good defender from the very start of his career.
  4. As a defender whose last name is Cole, I'm not sure I am comfortable with my name being associated with a clearly pointless area of the ground.
  5. Sure. I’m ready to get the hope over for another year and return to normal — dreading every weekend.
  6. Agreed. Everyone's wrist-slitting when he got an injury in the preseason this year had me totally befuddled.
  7. This is not a Steven May thread. This is a Cale Morton, Patrick Dangerfield, Melbourne drafting thread, in that order.
  8. The positive is there is no way any sane organisation could ever try to hide from a year as bad as Melbourne had in 2019. The negative is there is no way Melbourne could ever be thought of as a sane organisation, no matter the year.
  9. Let's face it, we're all pathetic losers for being on this site at any time, let alone in the offseason. Hostility towards Saty and Kev is simply a projection of the dissatisfaction that comes from knowing you shouldn't care about the offseason combined with the awareness that you care enough to read a website but not enough to visit in person. They do, and so they're better losers than all of us combined. Go Dees (at all times, but especially in the parts of the year when the games are being played)!
  10. I'll trust a Goddard 8th way more than a Champion Data 1st-then-daylight. What a crock that was.
  11. I think his parents had something to do with it.
  12. I don't care how reluctant he is, as long as he realises (which I'm sure he does) that the big offers stop coming when you are associated with stinking rabid failure. Welcome to Melbourne, Darren Burgess!
  13. We could do with some stable geniuses at the club.
  14. If I had an all-expenses paid opportunity to advance my knowledge of the particular aspect of the world I've chosen to devote my brain to, I'd definitely not go to Vegas. I might see my way to going to LA or New York though. There's bound to be at least one smart person in those two cities combined.
  15. How can I be a fan when he doesn't play for Melbourne?
  16. Can't kick. Can't kick when he plays, but most definitely can't kick when he doesn't play. Can tackle. Can't tackle when he doesn't play though.
  17. Why would anyone sympathetic to Essendon ever bring that whole saga back up again. The only way Essendon will ever fully recover from the whole doping fiasco is to accept that it happened, they paid for it, and they'll never do it or think about it ever again. Sometimes dead is better.
  18. Yeah. A bad year. This bloke saved our bacon vs Hawthorn last year in the Semi though, so he still has my faith that he can make it.
  19. Wild idea: a good coach would be able to make even rogue players stick to the gameplan.
  20. I recommend you stop using Internet Explorer.
  21. The thing about winning a flag is that it's not even like they're rare. They are won literally every year, like clockwork. Only we can't seem to manage it.
