  1. If we are guessing: 6 - Jackson, 15 - Langdon, 17 - Dunkley, 20 - Tomlinson, 24 - Rivers, 36 - Pickett, 38 - Brown, 43 - Bennell
  2. When picking a team we seem to aim for 7 defenders and 7 forwards (3 tall, 4 medium/small). Obviously Gawn plays and I reckon the right mix of midfielders would be 4 inside, 3 outside. On that basis... Best 22 (assuming no injuries whatsoever) Defenders: May, Lever, O.McDonald, Hibberd, Jetta, Salem, Kolodashnij Midfielders: Gawn (r), Viney, Harmes, Brayshaw, Oliver, Bennell, Tomlinson, Langdon Forwards: T.McDonald, Weideman, Petty, Melksham, Petracca, Fritsch, Pickett
  3. Lets hope a few of the senior players are joining in...
  4. Paul hopgood was a back pocket from memory?
  5. We should trade pick 22 and our 2020 first rounder for Langdon and pick 6 which Fremantle get from St Kilda. Then we take 2 of Young, Serong, Weightman, Flanders and Ash...
  6. No issues but i do think billy's development was hampered by our obsession with playing too many inside mids. We saw jones and tyson battling on the wings at times when a fit billy was in the twos. Like max said, our contested dominance in 2018 covered over the many cracks that were appearing elsewhere. We ignored the role of the wing and it has backfired massively. Hindsight yes, but astute people realised that 6-6-6 would elevate the role of the wing. Astute we were not. Now a wingman that had all the potential in the world (stretch was an under 18 all Australian) makes way so we can pursue another wingman who has been developed.
  7. We wanted Dew. He would have effectively been a Clarko apprentice due to playing in 2008.
  8. Why would Frost need to tour Hawthorn's facilities? Wouldn't they just say "we have them and your club doesn't".
  9. Maybe this has gone nowhere given the state election result? Hopefully we have at least spoken to the relevant stakeholders. I see that the racecourse itself is being redeveloped but not sure if that includes the public land in the middle.
  10. Interesting. Trying to build stuff in public parks is our go!
  11. Maybe too realistic and practical? Better to hold out hope of being allowed to move back to the 'G...
  12. Agree it looks like Gosch's... Has anyone ever mentioned Caulfield Racecourse as a possibility? In our "heartland", half way between the 'G and Casey and stacks of land in the middle of the racecourse to build a carpark, elite facilities and an MCG sized oval. Could serve as another base for MCC sides, and we know the Melbourne Racing Club is based there..."Team Melbourne" mark II?
  13. Head of player personnel? I think recruiting and list management come under him? I always thought it was totally inappropriate to have Todd in a position to influence football department discussions about his own son. Should have left when Jack was drafted to clear the path and eliminate any conflicts of interest... I remember Donald McDonald left North Melbourne when Luke was drafted...
  14. I think up to 4 senior player spots are available as we only had 39 senior players in 2019. I think you can have 38 - 40 seniors + 6 - 4 cat a rookies (44 total before cat b rookies, which you can have up to 3 meaning lists max out at 47).
  15. Harmes may have laid 9 tackles, but he was caught with the ball 3 times giving away free kicks.
