We were winning when Hogan left. Your war cries won’t get the job done. 

If we want to have any strong chance of keeping this list together, we simply have to win serious games of Football 

half the Competition would love nothing more than to rip our list apart. 
They don’t want the MFC to succeed. 
 

Hogan was/is a talented boy who won’t make it long term in this league 

It was sad to see him go, but it was the right decision. 
he is not the core we need to fight for

Petracca: "I love the club" "It's pretty special that Jack is a one club player"

Demonland: He gone

Despite having the superstar image, Trac always seemed to me as a real needs to be loved player. As long as we keep winning, i'm sure he will get a enough love from the club and fans.

That was a no win situation for Trac. He was in a set up. He knew it going in and no doubt so did the club and his manager. He stayed to script. He was no more nervous or unconvincing in his responses to last time he was on the show. Will get better but a long way to go as a media performer.

I don't know what people expect from him. He hasn't knocked back an offer from the club or anything like that.

Does anyone know who Trac's manager is. If its Paul Connors beware. He is Ollie's manager. I will not forget the Judd debacle.

You do also realise that he represents the player, he is the players representative to clubs to discuss with them how he wants to proceed, he is not making the decision for the player...

Judd made his own call and with the help of Connors used Melb to get a massive pay packet at a two bit, poo box club. Seeing Judd and his wife’s ways of making money since, the way the Dees (a three bit, poo box club at the time) were used as leverage is not surprising even if annoying for us.

From the horse's mouth:

Asked whether he wants to be at Melbourne beyond his current contract, he replied: “Yeah, I do. I love the club.”  He later added: “Being a one-club player is pretty special.”

I watched him live on AFL360 and 2 things occurred to me:

1. Pettacca seems happy.

2. Mark Robinson is the least intelligent person to ever be on Television in Australia. It’s impossible for him to get through a sentence without saying 2 words incorrectly. He’s oafish, rude and unbearable. I can’t stand that show, and haven’t watched it in years because of him. We have some very smart, articulate people in the football community, and it’s mind boggling that he somehow ends up getting so much work. He offers nothing.

In Trac's situation, unless he's made the decision or is about to re-sign, it would be remiss to declare his never leaving.

Clubs winning, strong relationship with Goody, getting marquee opportunities (Afl360), in our unofficial leadership group, best mates with Clarry & Salem and now mentoring Kozzy & Spargo. The signs are great.

Am I reading this wrong or is the fact that CP5 used to have a poster of Scott Pendlebury on his bedroom wall and Collingwood made a complete @rse of their last trade period the two things driving this narrative ?

People (usually driven by the media) make such a big deal about the club that players supported as a kid. Sure we'd all love to play for the Dees but if we were drafted by Fremantle you'd probably be a Docker through and through.

Although if the Dees then came knocking with a mighty big cheque ...

People need to stop getting sucked in by lazy journalism. I've said it a million times and i'll say it again - outlets report provocative crap like this for clicks.

clicks = dollars.

Why don't we just tranfer the whole Team over to Collingwood. they want Weideman, Petracca, Oliver and they are sniffing around 

Kossie and Spargo.

The Television Media are in a beverage filled stupor over a Club they, unless the mums and dads told them, have never even heard of, let alone had to study conscientiously, so at last, in line with doing a job, just have to actually work creatively and not just heresay.

I watched the start of Christian's segment but, as much as I wanted to watch our boy perform well on TV, I had to change channels because I could not stand Robinson's dumb, insulting and offensive questioning of Christian's future intentions.

Should this happen again, Christian should be primed with a quick, pithy response such as "you'll be the last to know", or "I'll let you know when I know" or "my contract is my business so please don't ask again". Or better still alert Whately before the show to control the mouth on his left.

It might hurt Christian's media career on 360 but so what? He is a smart boy and will do well wherever he goes post footy. He doesn't need drek like Robbo.

I just watched his spot on 360

Robinson really is cringe worthy to the point of pure anger

The definition of gutter sport journalism 

I haven’t read a HUN for nearly 2 years, i feel much cleaner. 
 

Good to know that Kozzie eats Coco Pops before a game

One of Earth’s greatest foods

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
