  1. Good post. We won on that trade. May will be fine and I really feel for Hogan now stuck under Ross Lyon at Freo. OMac will improve if given the chance with Lever alongside as he showed in 2018 early on.
  2. Great post but you forgot to mention that Preuss can also kick straight unlike others in the forward line
  3. Other upsides include long termers Hore Baker and Lockhart who all seem to be able to hit a target. Unlike some senior fill ins
  4. Well said. Eagles pulled a smart move bringing on hickey late. Could be shafes of the prelim they ate trying ?
  5. 66 to 42 Inside 50's will guarantee that won't happen - I hope. That stat alone is an indictment on someone or something.
  6. The club learnt their lesson with Jack in 2017, start of 2018. The club held jack back to start 2018 because of his approach to rehab in 2017 over the planta fascia issue. This was also depsite pressure from Todd to allow him to play. I trust the club on jack after last year. This is not a comment on jack- he's fantastic, just needs protection against himself sometimes.
  7. Final nail was the Front Bar. That show is perfectly cast and fills the nonsensical void so popular with footy followers, and hell, even my non-football wife loves that show. The FS was mandatory viewing under the Eddie/Trevor Marmalade configuration and drifted after that time of the late 90's/ early 2000's.
  8. Dropping Fritsch from a team with limited skills would be an error at this stage.
  9. Its a shame because he has a serious football brain and doesn't ever lack endeavour. BUT... in the Hawks 1st semi last year his excellent work in short kicking was undone by inability to hit a long target into attack. Trying to kick the cover off as you allude to. This issue has potential to limit his career and/or prevent reaching potential (as is now occurring)
  10. Jeffys last game based on that quarters decision making.
  11. "Butch. I tipped this..." and " This is michael williamson bidding you welcome ...." Great loss.

    Gary Pert

    At the AGM Pert clearly outlined his key objective a growing the club and harnessing the latent support so evident in the finals last year. Current membership seems to be, I think, about 1500 short of 50,000. So far so good despite the club's performance on field in my view. His test comes over next 3 years to lock the increasing membership growth in as a new floor/paradigm.
  13. Tim Smith doesn't appear on the MFC website player listing. Does that mean he doesn't really exist, or maybe in a parallel universe he does exist.?????
  14. Thanks Skuit. Best summary for a while on here. The foundation is in place but will be a rocky ride.
  15. Hawks had Gunston forced into defence in the 2nd 1/4 and no inside mids and the saints beat them by a lousy 5 points. I'll be very disappointed without a win this round against them.
  16. I agree SWYL. Jones hasn't been in our top 4 mids for several years now and last night just exemplified there CAN be a role for him forward for the remainder of the year. Thus having a respectful year for him, but being realistic on his abilities. No room for sentiment necessarily unless your last name is Flower or Stynes IMO these day. I would expect nothing less from Goody as coach
  17. Dermot brereton gave a succinct analysis of tom on sen on saturday crunch time. Basically Tom's a defender trying to be a forward but without a true forwards trick bag. Runs straight at the ball and thats about it. Derm was being fairly honest and instructive and worth a listen.
  18. oliver and gawn are our A graders. And nev on his day which is most of the time.
  19. Yes, and lets pass by on this. Cornes needs traction in the media and has developed this persona as differentiation. If we don't discuss him he's back to the fire brigade.
  20. Squibbing is a terrible word and did not occur here by Nathan. But he did drop a mark at a critical time that would not have been fumbled by Selwood, Cotchin, Pendlebury, Hodge, Hurn, Lyon, Viney(T), etc......
  21. Interestingly DD that's the opinion too of most if not all commentators. 3 of the 4 prelim teams lost, Matthew Lloyd pointed out last night training didn't start till 7 December and he's not concerned about any of last years prelim finalists. The main thing is to grab a few wins and then in second half they should be up and about. Optimistic but lets see. I saw the 2 MCG finals in 2018 - the talent is there for sure.
  22. They had every right to be. At the game we thought we couldn't believe the performance we were seeing and although engrossed in the game spent the time discussing whats going wrong rather than mindless cheering
  23. My reliable information on tmac is that he is meticulous in foot management. He has been known to take a bucket with him socially so he can ice his foot if needs be. Last year this occurred. Does nothing without medocos sign off.
  24. Thanks steve for this. I noticed the limp but the tail wags the dog here and has done for 2 years. Thats not supposition. I have just recovered from PF after 5 years. Soon as i heard the diagnosis i felt sick for jack. I trust goodu takes this in hand. If jack plays this week then we know the answer.
