  1. Stephen Powell played 2 fantastic seasons for us (2000 and 2002) and is the exact type of midfielder we lack today - a midfielder that kicks goals. Kicked 32 goals in 2000 including 7 over the prelim and GF fortnight. Left the club at the end of 2002 over a finance dispute I believe, which was poor management by us. Can’t make the list due to his brief tenure, but he was fantastic player that was picked up on the cheap (both for us and then St Kilda).

  3. He was a great man, Jim Stynes. Keep in mind that till not that long ago every indigenous player was racially abused by opposition players, supporters, a kind of reflection on how they had been treated since Mr Cook and Co brought on Philips' voyage.

  4. Yes, but the 50% pay cut so far is only for a few months, so his $1mill becomes about $850k. Poor guy... thoughts and prayers

  5. Even if it comes back by Queen's Birthday (which is extremely unlikely) there won't be any supporters allowed in negating the benefits of hosting it.

  6. I don't know how they actually do this or even can practice it at training. So let's see if I can get this right... If we have T.Mac, Weid, Fritsch, Melksham, Kossie, and Bedford playing as forwards, then to get maximum match simulation we would place May, Lever, Hibberd, Jetta, Salem and Harmes on them. Trouble is that we are now playing "half-court" ...i.e. it is all at one end of the ground. And we know that the players don't stick in positions during the game. So to overcome this at training , the forwards and backs get distributed to various other positions around the ground,

  9. Yes, that’s who I was thinking of. Thought they were related, but this thread from BF confirms they were not: https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/jace-bode.182334/ Funny reading the thoughts of posters there prior to him being drafted

  10. From an early post worth putting back up for this topic. Best recycled players that had to have played at least one game for another VFL/AFL team before being traded to the Dees since our last Premiership.

  11. I remember Jimmy Stynes when president, referring to Charles and the club not supporting him enough when he was injured, something Jim was keen not to happen again.

  15. Lovett played with Hawks under 19s and Reserves. But they had a strong team in 85 and he was cut. Certainly a good pickup and probably my #1 recycled player. I do like to addition of Ingo. Ingerson was a great bloke, reliable defender, good mark and spoil. Just the kicking was a bit awkward.

  16. brett lovett was a supplementary or under 19s at hawks, yeah? i don't think of him as recycled, and neither do i with farmer - they didn't play senior footy for any other club before ours i don't think... a few of those listed are before my time, so i'll go: brett lovett would be my #1 if he was considered 'recycled' jeff white brian wilson peter moore bernie vince clint bizzell peter rohde darren bennett anthony ingerson brent moloney peter vardy at #11 who comes in if lovett isn't 'recycled'

  22. Showed promise early on, similar to Lloyd Burgmann. Like so many, able to do some good things but played in a terrible team. The young guys were sacrificed on the altar of mediocrity. So many were Coodabeens.

  23. And thank Christ for that Moon. Even embraced by ScoMo and his mates. Even The Donald. Not a peep from the usual media bottom lickers. Funny how we have half the population who now think that welfare is well.....fair, now they are in the queue or may be. Suddenly free trade can be seen for what it is and protectionism does not look so bad. Economic growth is one thing but humanity is another. If we do not have a society that cares for one another, we do not have a society. Great to hear the AFL and clubs talking as one and supporting the unchanged state of t

  24. I used to drink at Adrian Minton-Connell's pub in Fitzroy in the late 80s and he was a lovely bloke. He married Peter Hudson's sister, Pam and they are the parents of Simon (also a top bloke).

  25. I think we should have always been aligned with Port Melbourne. Same song same colours and not half way to Gippsland where most of our supporters can't or wont get to.

  29. Remember Sid Catlin? This is from Demonwiki... Catlin started 1966 in the Fourths but by Round 14 he was coming off the bench in the last quarter at the MCG as the second youngest known MFC Player at 16 years, 218 days old on debut After winning five kicks in the last five minutes of his debut Catlin was promoted to first rover for his second and kicked 1.8. He played just one more game for the year and missed all of 1967 after suffering a knee injury in an early season reserves match before returning for a solitary game in 1968. He was again troubled by injury that year. In 196

  30. Hore? Miles off being an AFL player and is unlikely to improve much more. Better to blood Rivers and invest for 2021 and 22.

  31. It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast. Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going on when only viewed from an armchair in front of the TV, but there was too much of the “ same old,
