  1. Impossible question really. However, if both were fit Tomlinson would clearly be in front for reasons of experience and consistency of performance . Most would rate him as a “better player” Kk has been cruelled by his concussion issues. One can only hope that he successfully overcomes these in order to show what he is capable of

  3. There's a list of MFC Royalty, if ever I saw one! Emselle & Townsend were both great Rovers. I seem to recall that they weren't both able to get on the park at the same time for long periods. First one of them had a long-term injury. And, just as he was returning to the field, the other one hit the long-term injury list. Anyone else remember that? (Or, is it just the Old-timer's disease kicking in again??)

  5. Dunkley’s form was good enough as a 19 year old in the VFL to get drafted mid year and then good enough at Casey VFL to get promoted for AFL games (granted with a very deep injury list). All off the back of no AFL preseason yet people call him guaranteed not to make it and it assumes a yard stick of not getting senior games in 2020. He seemed to lack a yard but naturally knows how to find the ball, connect play and kick a goal. Assuming we are blessed with a more balanced list this year I suspect he will ply his trade in the mid field for Casey and be ready to seriously push in 2021 as you wou

  7. Funny you should mention Bruce Andrew. I am in possession of a small booklet called "Australian Football Handbook". Its author is Bruce Andrew, Secretary of the Australian National Football Council. Dunno how old it is (as it doesn't have a print date), but the types of kicks that Bruce lists might give some clue to its age. The kicks listed are as follows: The Drop Kick, The Stab Kick, The Punt Kick, The Torpedo Punt Kick, and (I kid you not!!), The PLACE KICK!! LOL Bruce begins the section on this kick by saying "This is the most accurate kick of all --

  10. I am interested in who people think are the 'Core"players should be in the team week in week out. A number of these are evident but I am sure we all have different views. Looking at the list as it stands at the moment and trying to envisage a team is an interesting exercise. To my mind we have a group of core players that will be selected week in week out as long as they are in form and fit. These guys are established players in the team that have a solid background of work in their portfolio and are expected to do their jobs. The second group I have are the players that I call borde

  13. KK isn't much suited to a wing. In fact, he plays his best football when at half back. First game against Geelong this year he played the whole game on the wing for a terrible return of 5 disposals for the game. Next week against Essendon he was just as poor. Tomlinson is miles ahead of KK in terms of playing that suitable wing role.

  20. We have this kind of discussion every year coming into January. The reality is seen when we play games. I think the beauty of the list now is we have a bit more young talent coming through but like all lists there are some obvious candidates that could probably be moved on at the end of season... KK may not make it to the start of the season, Baker, the Wagners, AVB if he cops any more injury, Hannan the same..Brown probably has one season in him, particularly in Bradtke starts to show something. ...of course apart from the injuries the ball is in their court to show why th

  21. Crazy game yesterday, thought Shanahan coached well in the first half and despite the ridiculous call on Garland in the 4th we rallied to get the win and go 13-3. Regardless of what happens it’s been a great season and return to the playoffs. Tipping Comp was a lot of fun again this year. Unfortunately I missed out on top 3, the long term goal remains to get on that honour board Bring on the playoffs!

  23. It is iffy. His use of the footy in the Geelong final was extremely poor to the point where people were discussing him as an outside chance of being dropped. However, he’s clear best 22 and offers things to the side others can’t; eg - tackling, big brute of a bloke, contested mark inside 50; known goal kicker.

  25. I knew him and his wife at the local shops, seeing them often. And saving a table for them many times. I had to look him up, to remember his surname. So I think I got the spelling wrong from the internet, somewhere. He was a really nice old man. I moved away, shortly before reading news of his passing.

  26. Congratulations to Charlotte and Jack. Fantastic news and all the best to them. But did I miss something? As far as I can tell their baby's gender hasn't been made public so she may just as well create havoc through the centre in the AFLW.

  28. Jeff White was a very good ruckman but he had hard hands and was a woeful pack mark, it was his greatest weakness and Max kills him in this aspect. Sure Jeff could occasionally use his great leap and soar up for a chest mark on someone's shoulders. Credit where it's due, he was a great kick, particularly for a ruckman.

  30. Last post on this from me. His previous prediction was 100% incorrect. What are the odds, eh? Drafts are generally predictable to those who take an interest by the week before. I have no doubt that list managers talk to journos. I also have no doubt that a so-called anonymous source on a fan forum does not define us as any more leaky than the Roos era. Claiming otherwise is just shitstirring. Over and out

  38. I'm interested in whether you posted that you were "digusted" with our drafting before or after it was leaked to you. Also keen to hear your explanation for posting inside info from a club official on a public website if you're so concerned with leaking?
