  1. This year would have been even harder without watching Max dominate his role at times. Am with all those that want him made Captain. Congrats - hopeful more plaudits and jackets to come in a long, illustrious career!
  2. I find a reason to despise these AA teams every year. The fact Hawkins made the side (lucky to be in the top 40 players in the league) and Fyfe Captain does it this year.
  3. As a Queenslander, no. After our improvement last year my partner (Collingwood supporter) and I chose to get Interstate memberships and fly down to Brisbane and Melbourne to see more of the football. I’ll be going back to using my spare time and money on holidays I don’t return depressed and disappointed from. More gutted and disheartened than any of the 30+ years I’ve supported the club 2bh 💔.
  4. To those that talk about he would have to spend 40%+ of the time at FF, and doesn't have the speed for the position. Given the Melbourne method is to bomb long and high inside 50, usually to about 20 - 30m out, wouldn't this be exactly the type of person we want sitting at FF? There were times the big fella man handled Kruezer in the ruck and in marking contests. He lost out a couple, but for the most part he competed or brought it to ground. I also recall his intro in the NAB was 2 marks on a strong lead, and careening into a big pack... again, exactly what we would ask for? While again not quick, I saw a tall bloke that was unafraid to throw his body-weight around to win a ground ball in the centre. Something that Melbourne have been criticised for inside 50. Surely they can play in the same team, while he might not get any quicker, the endurance can only improve, and I've been encouraged by the way he plays.
  5. Jones - Can’t hit target Viney - lost his tricks Gawn - gives it everything Oliver - kick the football Brayshaw - leave in middle Hore - better than most May - won his battles Lever - will only improve  Fritsch - look better today Salem - something wasn’t right Frost - missed his dash Hibberd - past his best Baker - deserves another chance Harmes - only composed mid Petracca - untapped potential frustrates Hannan - had little involvement Weideman - given no chance Spargo - coughed up regularly Garlett - physicality is embarrassing Hunt - only moving target T. McDonald - useless legless liability  Wagner - little to commend
  6. Melbourne needlessly rushing, loopy handballs over the top rather than kicks down the line to leading players. Selling teammates into trouble, handballs to stationary players. F50 entries have been woeful once again, but I haven’t seen anything resembling forward structure and leading patterns. Harmes from the boundary seems to be the only player with any kind of composure in traffic. Thank god for Marty Hore. McDonald looks completely out of sorts, and has benefitted Pies more than his own team so far.
  7. McDonald is just awful today... he’s an extra Pie today I swear
  8. Watching Jeff before the first bounce. Kicked it from 35 out through the middle every time. Game time - won’t have a shot. I just don’t understand...
  9. I'm only catching up on Demonland today... Can I ask from anyone that might be closer to the club, why are we playing Brayshaw on a wing? Last year, after what I think were injuries to others, and his own return to football, Gus came back in to immediate effect in the middle, probably underrated even amongst ourselves, and finished up 3rd in the Brownlow - probably deservedly when you go back and reflect on the work he did in there. Come 2019 hes relegated back to the wing, where we always end up whinging about his performances, and where it feels to me like we're wasting one of our biggest talents. Didn't we look our best and play our best last year with Gawn/Oliver/Brayshaw/Harmes(tagging) in the middle?
  10. Couldn't agree more unfortunately RG. A bit like Brayshaw at the moment, they both collect a load of the football, win a lot of their own football, but their disposal has just crucified us at times - either the short hospital handball to a teammate under pressure, the no-look, over-the-head handball to no one in particular, or the long high kick around the body to no advantage or straight turn over.
  11. Wow... just wow. Not ONE [censored] Melbourne player stays down in a marking contest. Are you [censored] kidding me guys! BASICS YOU PROMISED! Basics!!!!
  12. Brayshaw gets a load of football... but how many rushed, pointless bomb-around-the-body kicks has he done tonight that have been to no advantage or straight turnovers. Im getting sick of seeing it... I understand the hundred handballs are tough with Tiger pressure but what about wide spread instead of 0.5m handballs to stationary teammates... The fumbles tonight as well. FMD, what happened to “getting back to the basics.” Watched the half time drill of picking it up off the deck, translated to nothing during game time.
  13. Fritz has been so costly... last year you’d have felt safe with ball in his hands. Once again the turn overs are just absolute basics we were supposedly getting back to tonight have been woeful. As frustrating as it gets
  14. What the hell is going on with our stoppage set up? How are we positioning no one defensive side, you don’t need every player running through. My god some of these problem are things you coach in junior grades...
  15. The uncontested turnovers are absolute killers. We must have had a handful already. Just bombing it from defence and it just comes straight back in.
