  1. Should at least get a game when we only have 22 fit players left by Round 10
  2. I wanted him to get a game mid-season last year before he was injured but the #1 rule in life is never get seduced by the highlights tape.
  3. Should have threatened them with a brutal camp again
  4. The rest of the side is suffering intermittent fisting
  5. The season is rooted anyway, there is nothing to be gained from making the club look like a 2012/13 style circus.
  6. He can guide them in giving away petulant free kicks behind play.
  7. Four weeks of being told how much we needed Lewis' leadership, then he unnecessarily decks a bloke inside 50 and concedes a free. The season is dead, give him a token assistant coach position until the end of the year and work on the future.
  8. In any other circumstances I'd denounce the name Tigga, but in this case I really want them to play a game just for the novelty value.
  9. Probably because they were champions of the club, not a fly-in fly-out player who gave the bare minimum service. I'd have him back if we needed a toilet cleaned.
  10. As discussed in tonight's podcast, on demonwiki.org we've been compiling a list of all the MFC connected players who served in wars as well as the better known list of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. This stretches from the Boer War to the Korean War, and is very much a work in progress so if anyone can shed more light on the service of the players listed below please get in contact via the forum or mfchistory@gmail.com. Fortunately the format copies perfectly from the page (http://demonwiki.org/Players+who+served+during+war) to this forum, so here's the list. The * denotes a non-senior player (e.g. from a lower grade or trained with us without playing a game). A particularly interesting story is the Couve brothers, who both trialled in the 1912 pre-season but didn't play a game and were struck down just 15 days apart during the Gallipoli landings. Players who died during war First World War Player Date Location Jim Bonelli 24 May, 1918 France Cliff Burge 14 August 1918 Villers-Bretonneux, France Alan Couve 26 April 1915* Gallipoli, Turkey Henry Couve 8 May 1915* Gallipoli, Turkey Jack Doubleday 30 October 1918 Indian Ocean Bill Fischer 15 October 1917 Belgium [censored] Gibbs 19 July 1916* France Albert Gourlay 1 November 1918 England Mal Kennedy 2 January 1918 Belgium Frank Lugton 29 July 1916 Villers-Bretonneux, France Jim Mackie 20 March, 1917 Bapaume, France Bill Maxwell 12 October 1917 Passchendaele, Belgium Fen McDonald 25 April 1915 Gallipoli, Turkey Alick Ogilvie 18 August 1915 Malta Leo Rankin 10 May 1917 Wareham, United Kingdom Joe Pearce 25 April 1915 Gallipoli, Turkey Harold Rippon 16 January 1917 France Percy Rodriguez 20 March 1917 The Somme, France Bobby Royle 3 November 1916 France Alexander Salton 10 September 1916 France Alf Williamson 11 April, 1917 Bullecourt, France Second World War Player Date Location Sid Anderson May 20, 1944 Wewak, New Guinea Jack Atkins March 1, 1942 Sunda Strait, off Java Harold Ball February 9, 1942 Singapore Ron Barassi Sr July 31, 1941 Tobruk, Libya Laurie Brady 1 May 1944 Melbourne, Victoria Noel Ellis July 6, 1942 Queensland John Fraser June 1944* Canadian Rockies Clyde Helmer April 24, 1945 Aitapi, New Guinea Derek Mollison 19 December 1943 Rockhampton Ted Regan July 9, 1943 over Burma Beres Reilly July 23, 1943 over Crete Archie Roberts June 6, 1945 Ambon, Dutch East Indies Charles Stewart June 1942* former seconds player - killed in an aircraft accident A.

  11. And watch bad teams get stomped in spectacular fashion like they used to in the VFA. Imagine if you took our 2012/13 teams and added even more open space on the ground - we'd have topped 186 and 190. The benefits when good teams play each other might be worth it, but there will be less than zero benefit for the people that watch their team lose by 25 goals each week. As for full ground 6-6-6 that is just dead-set insanity and anyone who thinks it's a good idea should have to undergo a urine test before posting.
  12. Felt like we're never a good contested mark team, so I went back and looked at the stats and we were second last year behind West Coast. Was a bit of an anomaly considering we've been 11th/3rd/11th/16th in the years before that. 3rd place in 2015 was propped up by Hogan's 47 (third most in the league), and last year Gawn had 55 for third best in the league.
  13. Sydney bloke no effort to raise the hand and collect the ball. That was the second of my 2-0 lifetime record at the MCG. Maybe I should go on Thursday?
  14. Not groundbreaking news that we'd be better with Lever, May and Lewis but I liked this bit.
  15. Still angry about that bulltish 50 against Rivers
