  1. I'd wager it's some kind of walking clock.
  2. 3 way tie at work for the footy tipping, talked a mate into tipping the Dee's to go for the win...
  3. I differed from a position in La Trobe Melbourne's space science course for 12 months to earn some money at the local pig farm. That was 13 years ago. My god I have lost some money and bragging rights over those years. Although I do remember one year I was given 5 goals in against Collingwood for us to lose by a point on Queens birthday and then because of that result only given 3 points in later in the year and we drew. 2 boxes of Tom Scully's (because MELBOURNE were BITTER) Maybe I should have differed my decision to barrack for Melbourne, even thought twice about the enormous (and painful) chest tattoo. It's hard to justify "Every heart beats true" can mean anything else, can't change now. What's the youngest you can get a kid tattooed in Thailand...🤔🤔🤔
  4. I went to use this excuse last week when quizzed on our poor season but truth is that accounted for the first 5 or 6 rounds not now We miss Vandenberg and Melksham, where's the mongrel
  5. Taking the second born to his first MCG encounter today. Weather back home is perfect for chasing meter plus Murray Cod and they seem to be landed every night at Mulwala so I'm sacrificing a lot for this weekend. Please just make it happen...
  6. Surely we can see it's the wing/outside mid that needs to be filled. Hill was at both end of the ground all day on Saturday. Jones and Brayshaw on the wing are to slow. Baker gets lost to easily in the early stages of his career. We need speed. Polecc, Saad, Milera, something like that... Jayden Hunt onto a wing?
  7. I love the 3 word player analysis, without a word of a lie it and the changes thread I actively look for but I think these are the wrong way around
  8. Couldn't be prouder. Would rather lose and show some heart. Get angry, show something. Fly the flag. Hunt is now forever a demon regardless
  9. If your as bitter as you are optimistic then I pity your friendship circle
  10. Spot on about being out of position, and Petracca. The bloke was drafted as the best midfielder in his year then developed as a power forward, then we wonder why he has "no tank" Put Gus in the middle and develop Petracca as the mid he was destined to be. Send Viney into the forward line to apply ground pressure.
  11. It's a bit like watching Collingwood and Carlton, you are thrilled that one has to lose but unfortunately one has to win for that to happen
  12. Kind of ironic, last time we went over there our season was on the line, circumstances couldn't have been any more different. Not sure what I honestly expected back then but I think we were all shocked at the result. Things have gone down hill since then. Not sure what to expect tonight. I am taking my son for his first AusKick tonight. Alot has changed since my first kick of the footy through to his; 8 (unfortunately I think that's about to be 9) Prime Minister's 10 Melbourne coaches (even sadder) 5 different names for Kardinia park 34 players on our list were born 4 clubs were invented 13~ John Farnham tours (difficult to quantify) 22 Marvel movies 14 Professional Darts Corporation world titles for Phil Taylor 7 F1 titles for Michael Schumacher 7 V8 super car championships for Jamie Wincup (1 for Mark Winterbottom, go Frosty) 23 confirmed nuclear detonations Pluto was officially dropped as a planet 0 Melbourne premierships The sun will come up tomorrow regardless, we will have our time in it again, would be nice to have a win to accompany my inevitable hangover though
  13. Has anyone seen the movie Haggard, you need to get a hold of Falcone he invented a reverse microwave
  14. Harsh on ANB in my opinion
  15. It's frightening how hard this hits home
  16. Is this confirmed? Can't find anywhere
  17. Here we go again. Very excited for the upcoming season. For the first time in a long time I have genuine expectations for us. Even last year I still felt was apart of the growing process. Growing is done. Let's make teams afraid to play us, the same way we used to dread coming up against highly skilled and ruthless men like Hawthorn, Geelong and recently Richmond. Let's take anyone, anywhere, anytime. One man falls? Another steps into his place. Every game is earnt, every inch is fought for. We are all proud now of our club, let's make others envy us. Nathan Jones and Jack Viney. Go Dee's.
  18. I can't remember where I heard or read this but it definitely stuck in my mind. Hutchy's Croc Media are going to make a bid for the next deal, and then on sell bits and pieces and they will offer their own version of "kayo" I can certainly see it happening, and they will have to sell off bits and pieces to the highest bidder to pay for it
  19. Can't wait for a night Grand final, it is inevitable and I for one welcome our new night time slot overlords
  20. Disagree, I thought Oscars kicking has improved out of sight
  21. Geez Plough is the worst commentator I have ever heard. I mean there is some bad ones but geez he sucks
  22. I played a game of cricket in Corowa yesterday (Not that close to Shepparton but similar weather conditions) We have to take turns umpiring and while I was umpiring the bowler had to leave the ground. It was hot. 100 run win secures a home final, our Grand Final is on the same time as our round 1 game against Port. Hopefully they allow a small radio out in the middle.
  23. This is an interesting point. My uncle works for the Sydney Swans academy (who have 2 Issac Heeney clones coming through in the 2020 draft, you heard it here first) and he said that they look for at least 1 elite attribute. He uses Watts vs Scully as an example. Watts never really had entered elite attributes, rather was very good at everything. He says that is why he is now just an average footballer. Scully on the other hand had elite running ability, so it might have taken him a few years to reach AFL standard fitness but now (up untill injuries at least) his elite running capacity started to show through. It doesn't matter what skill you have but to make it you must be elite in something. Vision, contested marking, tap work, fitness, speed, goal sense. I think that is why Hunt will make it, his line breaking pace is genuinely elite in the competition. It is a skill that is hard to teach and not many people posess.
