  1. Having a place in the finals locked up before the end of July. And pretty much every other suggestion in this excellent thread.
  2. I call bulltish. DeeSpencer has reported in today's (ie, a Wednesday) training thread that Viney was kicking on his right foot. I'd rather believe DeeSpencer's eyewitness accounts than a disgraced has-been's tweets.
  3. Is it too much to ask for these two to debut together in a winning team just so the Herald Sun can use the headline "Baptism of Fire"?
  4. Most exciting part about this was reading Viney was kicking on his right! (Great reporting, by the way)
  5. It's a long way to get to Hell, Michigan and back.
  6. Not sure if you realise that facts aren't welcome on social networks in this post-truth world. Consider yourself admonished.
  7. Past performance is the evidence. I hope I'm wrong, but if 'Weideman' was a TV program, it would have been cancelled because of poor ratings. I accept that footballers, like TV shows, sometimes need more time to prove their worth. And like some TV shows, after poor starts they eventually fire. I hope Weideman is like one of those.
  8. I think it means people who object to apostrophes being used when they're not needed, particularly when used to pluralise words such as tattoo and mantra.
  9. And on a slight tangent, if I recall correctly, one year under Bailey I believe we had only three players on the list who had previously been on the list of another AFL club. Brent Moloney would have been one; I can't recall the others. I suspect Bailey had the idea that a homegrown list is better than a Foreign Legion.
  10. https://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/553620/training-gallery-dees-go-indoors (Trying desperately to keep the thread on track...)
  11. Most derailed thread. Ever. Just to get back on topic, it seems training was not "postponed" at all. Rather it was moved indoors. And away from Saty's prying camera, they were prepared to do some competitive work with "shirts on" versus "shirts off". I'm tipping if the club announces a Gosch's paddock training day with half the team with their shirts off, there'll be a larger crowd of spectators in attendance than normal.
  12. I'm curious...would you play White and Ditterich in the same side or not play White? If you play both, would you do so as two ruckmen or have one play in a different position? For what it's worth, when they played with us, I think White was the better ruckman but could not play any other position. I can't recall Ditterich playing anywhere with us other than as a ruckman. I would only pick one ruckman, so I would choose White. Peter Moore can provide the back-up.
  13. And then there's scum. Please be careful everyone.
  14. I was always confused by Jesse Hogan's set shot kicking action. It always looked to me that he was holding the ball as if to kick it on his left (ie, non-preferred) foot. Nevertheless, it seemed to work (mostly) for him. It just made me more nervous than necessary each time he was running in to kick. And a question for those who understand the mechanics of kicking. Why is it that natural left-foot kickers invariably seem worse on their right foot than right-footers are on their left?
