  1. Wasn’t he pulled out of the AFLX series this year for a knee clean-out? https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/coupler.foxsports.com.au/api/v1/article/amp/afl/melbourne-star-tom-mcdonald-ruled-out-of-aflx-tournament/news-story/27f0fc38237c52de4da69ea3ae3083f2
  2. Stick a fork in us.... and one in my eye.
  3. Foxtel did it for a few AFL games in the early 2000s. I recall being at a friends place watching an AFL game and pressing the red button on the remote to turn the commentary off and change camera angles. It was a bit clunky but definitely could have been refined into something quite good. Below is an example of how it looked with the rugby. The audio could be changed to commentators off but still with crowd noise on and I think their was an option to have the umpires audio feed as well. Cannot believe with today’s technology that this is not possible, as always, it’s about the money.
  4. I’d say this means he is playing:
  5. fourteen, Fourteen, FOURTEEN! 🙄
  6. Don’t know if it’s been mentioned elsewhere but congratulations Jack Viney on 100 games. Let’s hope he turns it on. Reminds me of:
  7. Here’s the tape for those brave enough to review it. https://m.afl.com.au/video/2019-03-23/skipper-drops-a-sitter-pays-full-price Tom Mc looked like he was 60 out when he passed it to Jones who was about 45 out directly in front.
  8. No, Clarko would have whinged to his old mate Gil to sort it out for him. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/clarkson-meets-with-afl-boss-as-campaign-continues-20180514-p4zf89.html
  9. On this point, I watched several of the other games from Round 1 as well attending our match and watching the first 3 quarters of our replay. The broadcast of most games showed the benches several times with the runners holding up various signs with some fairly obvious meanings (such as Port with their “10” speed sign indicating 10 minutes left in the quarter). Either our signs were not shown on the broadcast (and I was behind the interchange at the actual game so I couldn’t see there) or we didn’t have anything other than the runner and a sign to indicate player numbers for rotations. Anyone know what we were doing signal wise for plays or tactics? (If anything?) If we’re not running with any kind of signal system from the interchange bench could that have contributed to our poor showing?
  10. 4 more years. https://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2019-03-19/goodwin-signs-on-until-the-end-of-2022 https://www.melbournefc.com.au/video/2019-03-19/coach-signs-on
  11. He’s gonna need some help in the ruck if he’s wearing that thing. Use the Force, Paddy!
  12. If I die at our winning Grand Final I have advised my fellow Dees tragics to go full “Weekend at Bernie’s” style with me for the duration of the celebrations.
  13. Lee Gaskin is from Adelaide so that explains him. Who knows why Barrett would pick them. But seriously, most people on the AFL.com list are the Who’s who of “Who?”
  14. If we win the Premiership then this needs to be put up 50ft tall on the side of a building in the CBD.
  15. Here’s how I’m seeing this having come about. Credit to The Oatmeal
