Recommended Posts

Greetings, ladies, gentlemen and those with a gender agenda.  

It's still a week until the Draft takes place and we're all looking for something to fill in the time.

Here is a team consisting solely of Melbourne Football Club players, past (mainly) and present and named in position.

PM please (not Stanley Bruce et al!) if you can identify the common factor.  It's fairly easy.

There may be clues.  There may or may not be prizes.

 

B:        Matthew Whelan     Laurie Fowler     Jake Bowey

H/B:   Jayden Hunt     Lynden Dunn     Nathan Brown

C:        Scott Thompson     Brian Wilson     Daniel Ward

H/F:    Aaron Davey     Brad Miller     Brent Moloney

F:        Tom McDonald     Chris Dawes     Darren Cuthbertson

R:        Jeff White     Nathan Jones     Jordan Lewis

I/C:     Steven O'Dwyer     Jordie McKenzie     Joel Smith     Max Walker

SUB:   Michael Newton

COACH:    Simon Goodwin

Quick update before I head out for a few hours.

@Lucifers Hero has the correct answer and, for her efforts, wins a Top Ten Draft Pick.  Spend it wisely, Luci!

It would be good to see more female participants.

Look closely at the OP - there is a clue there.

Not sure whether accidental but there is also a clue in this post...

Third place and the associated Third Round Draft Pick has been snaffled by @La Dee-vina Comedia, thereby just pipping @Mazer Rackham who will have to settle for a Rookie Draft Selection.

As hinted at in various ways, the players in my team all share a surname with currently listed AFLW players.

I believe that @Timothy Reddan-A'Blew has another teaser up his sleeve and hereby pass the baton his way.

That AFLW team if anybody is interested is as follows.  Some surnames are shared by multiple women, of course.

Oddly, there is both a Tarni Brown and a Tarni White!

AFLW is always just another click on the mouse to escape ... sorry but it is true. Would never have known / solved this one.

I knew that team reminded me of something, Mr. Rackham.  This was my attempt from last year.

Behold the very colourful Rainbow Raiders!  I hope you like the centreline tribute to our disco/clash jumper.

And sorry I missed this one @Demonstone. I've just this last hour arrived back from a warm and sunny (sorry, southern and northern Victorians and inland NSWelsh) mid-north coast NSW road trip, tech free.

Congrats @Lucifers Hero, @layzie and @La Dee-vina Comedia, and, unrewardedly, @Mazer Rackham. Such 'white bread' names in the team, I doubt I would have made the connection before any of you, although 'Stone's original clueing is rather generously heavy in hindsight!

So, now, time for me to bat on, apparently!

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
