  1. A game plan! A system that doesn't involve hit-and-hope balls kicked to the top of the square. Or a system that doesn't press too far and leave opposition running into open, easy goals. Where the midfield are not bees to a honeypot and no one plays outside... Other than that. Players played in correct positions. Team selection based on form/fitness.
  2. Good kicks include Flower, Stretch, Grinter, Lyon, Bennett, Jakovich, Davey, Yze, Watts, Salem, Johnstone, Schwarz, Robbo (latter years), Charles, Farmer and Warren Dean.
  3. Deakin is a better name than RMIT, Skuit. You've been out of the country too long! 😋
  4. We'll finish the home and away in fourth spot, win two finals and then I'm not sure what happens!
  5. Saty, with sports photography you'll need to take your camera off full automatic mode, use a fast shutter speed and use aperture priority mode. Otherwise you're only hope is to fluke a good shot!
  6. Not sure its as black and white as this Saty! Posters here are not necessarily fanboys but observers. His running capacity is superb and he does continue to get in the right positions. However, his ability to tackle and/or kick (perhaps when fatigued) is very poor. No Melb player misses more shots from 15-20 metres out on the run, and no Melb. player currently on the list has so many missed tackles. These are the areas, if he gets right, could mean he is a very dangerous player and great asset to the team.
  7. Wonder if clubs think Gould won't be able to keep the weight off and won't have the running capacity for AFL? He looks like a natural leader and a natural footballer.
  8. Heard over the past how we don't leak, blah blah. If Jackson and Pickett are the first two chosen someone in the football department has leaked! My NTP criteria is recruit elite ball users that don't mind getting their hands dirty. Kind of points to Young, Ash or Stephens...
  9. The low ball drop is a delight. Definetely a Hibberd replacement. Be interested to know if he could make it into the midfield. Salem, as an example, has struggled to make that transition.
  10. Big statement I know, but Kemp looks like a combination between Bontempelli and Pendlebury. Very exciting prospect. Ash is hard to go past as well.
  11. Fair bit of shooting the messenger here. In the AFL media you are encouraged to make provocative statements. The fact that Cornes does this regularly shouldn't mean we all get our knickers in a twist... Cornes hates Goodwin, Cornes never coached, Cornes is a [censored]... He's just a guy with an opinion. No different to us. Relax.
  12. The veil of negativity on this site has become contagious. It's bad for your health. So get off your computers, and go outside, play with your grandkids, or something...
  13. I didn't like losing Frost one bit. Pace, strength and unpredictability are not bad traits. I like Langdon (despite the ponytail) and to a lesser extent Tomlinson who should be running into his prime. The pick swap with Norf was a bit like a rich woman from Brighton wanting to spend more after maxing out her husbands credit card! Buy now, pay later. Let's see what our two first round draft picks bring. Taylor won't be trotting out: "we picked the best available..." this draft if we are serious in trying to address our gaping holes . Would love there to be a surprise in the PSD, but those don't happen to Melbourne!
  14. A million dollars badly spent... 3 x 350,000.
