  1. Call talkback radio! Email Paul Roos!
  2. I'm pretty happy with the appointment. The guy has been a gun at most things he's attempted for a large part of his life. Has now had some time off and is getting back into a CEO role with a wealth of experience and the time to reflect on lessons learned at Collingwad. In spite of that or with that in mind, I don't know... I dug up some youtube videos of him in his previous role to see if there was any change in him between his successful era and less so era for interest's sake. Successful era Pert: Less so, Pert:
  3. I haven’t been following along as much as previous preseasons, but this is yet to be announced as far as I’m aware. Anyone know who’s in? Normally announced after Maroochydoore. If not, thoughts? Viney, Jones captains, Jetta, Gawn, McDonald leadership group. Lewis should be in there because he is a leader, but I like small groups and these guys are as Melbourne as any of us.
  4. I still love Buggy and I hope he doesn't lose his brashness in trying to redeem himself.
  5. Is that for real? Can't believe he's only 31.
  6. No, it doesn't. It shows that if he's collecting the pill, then someone else with decent disposal isn't. The problem is that Tyson's best is very good, but his worst is shocking. I'd rather see him find form in the VFL.
  7. You can argue it all you like, mate. Doesn't make it true. It was like watching Melbourne of old seeing Dom kick it out on the full, to 1-on-3s or that god-awful clearance when he got a perfect tap from Gawn, threw it immediately on his boot and it went 30 metres straight to a Carlton player. If he's getting our highest possessions in the future and disposing of it in the manner he was today, we are in real trouble. As my non-Demons supporting mate said, we were lucky we were playing Carlton today.
  8. The link to more videos on the club's mobile website has been broken for over a year and I've emailed them twice this year to get them to sort it out. The first reply I received was a thank you, it's been forwarded to the media department. The second response was that they're very busy and will get to it when they can. Seriously, it's one link. How hard?
  9. Demon shop doesn't have one. Anyone know if it's possible to buy them? I get a generic cut + paste response everytime I email the club, so this seems a more likely place to get a decent answer.
  10. Dan Allsop thread Good to see him getting a run with Casey after missing out on the Cat B rookie position with Melbourne. Hopefully shows his stuff and gets another shot in the next draft.
  11. Just can't see it making any difference and I'm glad we're not involved for the physical effects its likely to have on the players, even if just looking at the 24 hours of plane travel. The second generation Chinese population is already as interested as any other Australian would be and if we're talking about first generation Chinese then I doubt they'll even notice the game gets played. I see no reason for any section of the Chinese population to take even a passing interest in AFL unless directly introduced by an Australian friend. Agree with you that Guangzhou would provide a better venue, I reckon Hong Kong as wll. I think the stadium they've provided in Shanghai shows how serious the Chinese side is taking the game.
  12. Appreciate the updates for people who can't be there.
  13. http://m.richmondfc.com.au/video/2016-11-21/pick-27-hamish-brayshaw-jrz Found this while googling him to see if he was drafted. Guess the tiges were interested enough to have a highlight reel ready to go? Sucks for him, but an injury free year and he'll be right in the mix for next year's draft.
  14. Have rated Hutchins very highly for his leadership this year. Hope he gets another crack.
  15. Yeah, I stand corrected. Rookie list rules have changed and we don't have to have any if we don't want them. MINIMUM NUMBER OF ROOKIES Rookie lists are now recognised as a key list management tool and designating a minimum number of rookies is no longer necessary as it is purely a club decision. Source
