  1. Reckon he would've disposed of them not long after the drive by shooting of his home, if he hadn't already.
  2. What Bin. An interrupted pre-seaon?? 😅
  3. Real good get I reckon. Big question however is..... Has he shed the Man bun ??
  4. Should've given the game away after Freddy got Fingered 😁
  5. Always liked him as a player but I'm not sure he's exactly the type of player we are screaming out for. He is however clearly best 15 or better for us so improves our list and costs us stuff all. He's missed one game in 4 years which was the elimination Final so he's very durable. Very polished in the media, impressive young bloke
  6. Agree, TMac almost as baffling, I reckon he had 2 very good games, the rest were poor
  7. Terribly sad news. One of the great characters of the game RIP Spud.
  8. A very Melbourne like performance. Dominated all the vital stats like clearances, scoring shots and inside 50s and got pantsed.
  9. Agree, it was pretty hard to get enthused by that match at all. Happy though, very rarely do I want Collingwood to win. But then I saw Eddie prancing around and felt ill.
  10. Including May n Lever?? The other names makes sense though re prelim
  11. Honestly, any reporter who thinks Spargo, Omac and even Weid are best 22 doesn't have much credibility.
  12. That Brayshaw could finish 5th shows you just how bad we were this year. Coming off a top 3 brownlow finish his season was probably not far behind TMacs in terms of disappointment of the year . I'd be staggered if he gets 1 vote this year
  13. I knew we would start the season slow due to the preseason but fully expected us to become a dominant team on way to a Grand Final berth at the very latest by midway through the year. I actually wrote our season off after our first win against Sydney. They were awful and somehow we were marginally less awful. I knew we were doomed for the year. I've been indifferent about the season and surprisingly non caring about how bad we've been up until last week against Sydney when I was ropable. The attitude of our footy department with team selection , the pizzweak lazy and selfish efforts on the field , the seemingly dumbfounded look on Goodwin's face who looked like he was out of his depth, pushed me over the edge. Yesterday my heart rate did not change one little bit for the whole match apart from that last 30 second forward foray when my heart yearned for a useless draw. How sad and pathetic am I..... On par with this footy club.
  14. If Clarkson was our coach, Jones would be packing the reef oil and surf wax on his way to Surfers Paradise.
  15. Things just a.... Don't seema... To.... Be goin' right.
  16. What about being scored against in the first minute of a quarter . We seemed to have owned that title a few years back and have welcomed it back with open arms this year.
  17. When they're reviewing recruitment and drafting, find out why they failed to recognise we desperately need outside ball users with pace when all we went for was more of the same hard bodied inside players. Every single one of us on here could see this was a requirement..... How did they not??
  18. x 2. Auto renew Premium Member for 15 years. If it's more of the same after a month I will cancel my membership. It's a lot of money for no reward. I would still attend games but GA tickets only.
  19. I posted this in another thread about the co-captaincy last night, probably more appropriate here....... I remember Jones being blind-sided, but then ``warmed`` to the idea. From the outside looking in, I don`t think he ever warmed to it and there are lingering side-effects on show to this day. I was told 2 years ago by a former player that Viney was more concerned about his own form than being a leader. Maybe he has grown since then but he hasnt exactly been on the park for much of the past 2 years. In my opinion both of them need to go and Gawn needs to be made sole Captain, appointed by the coach. His speech at the BnF last year was enough to tell me he is a true leader, he talks the talk BUT he walks the walk. I don`t think Jones nor Viney are natural leaders. Steven May has shown more onfield leadership (in the few games he has played) than either of these blokes this year. Clean slate next year or its rinse and repeat, bet your bottom dollar.
  20. I'm very similar in age and mindset right now. I've been a Premium member ever since I returned to Melbourne 14 years ago. Out of all the countless disappointments we've had in half a century I think last night was the tipping point for me. Not even in the Neeld era did I consider stopping my membership. $650 a year gets me a pretty decent guitar.
  21. I definitely remember Jones being blind-sided, but then ``warmed`` to the idea.

  22. There are many things high on the agenda but I agree 100% Neither of these 2 have shown any leadership qualities in this insipid year. We are doomed if either one of them are even VC. Gawn Captain with a new VC and scrap the leadership group.....who is even in it this year, I would not have a clue.
  23. I feel we are witnessing a coach who rode on the coattails of all of Roos` good work last year, when we played above ourselves for 5 or 6 weeks before we ran out of steam. Looks lost in the coaches box OR he has lost the players.
