  1. Has he ever finished a game on the park ? The poor bugger just keeps finding different ways to get hurt !
  2. He'd be getting on a bit but we might be able to snaffle him in the mid season draft
  3. Liam Wale-Buxton. Recruited from Vermont in the EFL. Goes alright
  4. Because he can't get a kick mate. There is a chasm between VFL and AFL. If he can't get near it at the lower level, do you blame some for being less than enthusiastic about his prospects ?
  5. This is true but overlooked for the most part. A comparison to Hawkins is instructive. Hawkins, who came into AFL with a much more developed body, didn't become a dominant forward until his sixth season in the comp. In his first five years the only times he really looked like a quality player was when he played on Nathan Carroll.
  6. This article was referred to in the Injury List thread & while mods may consider merging this thread, I think it's worthy of its own discussion. The stats are diabolical year on year and in reading the pre season training reports I didn't get the vibe that things were quite that dire. The comparison with the Crows fall from grace in 2018 is interesting. Would love to see their pre season player availability stats for a deeper analysis
  7. He's obviously not what he once was. Before 7 lost the footy rights to 9 & 10 he was bloody good. When he returned I suspect he had to dial up the "Bruceness" because Anthony Hudson had pretty much spent five years impersonating him and continues that to this day. And it seems the Bruceness has been dialled up further each season. But he loves the game, loves it played well & loves those who play it best. That's not a bad thing even if he goes over the top a bit. His "barracking" was as bad as I've noticed it on Thursday but I don't usually notice any bias. He's cheer-led us in the past too - "The Dees are gonna be something" (we so weren't Bruce, unless you meant something shitehouse). As someone posted earlier, who do you replace him with as a chief commentator ? There's not a lot of obvious replacements. Clinton Grybas left a massive hole in the commentary ranks with his untimely passing. The VFL boys do a good job although their voices are a bit bland. Adam Papalia is my personal favourite - no bulldust, calls the game and calls it well. Aside from that it's slim pickings. At the bottom of the barrel, Dwayne Russell has given me the [censored] from the moment he hit the airwaves. But even he is preferable to the hell that is Basil. He was the reason my daughters first(& only time) heard me drop the C-bomb. He annoys me like no other and has near cost me a TV screen on a few occasions. I nearly hurled the remote at the screen during the tennis ! The bloody tennis ! How can a commentator get you that pizzed off in tennis ? He has a special gift
  8. Was spewing we let Bishop go. 6,5" blokes who can run like the clappers were hard to find back then. Had a solid career for Port & played in their flag I believe
  9. Sure was. Had one real good year. Might have even finished on the podium in the B&F
  10. Think it was 149 and got suspended for the last couple of rounds the silly bugger. Doesn't qualify for this team though as he left Melbourne to return to Port in the SANFL
  11. As I recall the dual membership used to give access to an evening in the MCC at a function with the coach. I think it was when The Reverend was at the helm. At some point after that they re-jigged the MCC/MFC thing & formed 2 categories They also gave a free junior MFC membership which was useful. There are a couple of Demon relatives of mine in their late teens, early 20's who were introduced to the MFC with one of these free memberships I'd imagine there are plenty more so that was a worthwhile promotion When things were really crook and our attendances sucked I used to enter via the MCC, get a passout, then enter with my MFC membership to increase the crowd stats by one. At the end of the day it's not about what you get - it is a donation. Rather than pins and scarves etc I'd rather the club just keep and use the money. How many scarves can you wear ?
