  1. I would have loved for him to play just one game for MFC. His raw emotion when we won the G.F last year was a lovely thing to behold. Good luck Warrior, you have done yourself proud with your achievements, I hope the next chapters of your life are fantastic. Cheers P.F

  5. It's true, he met with a group from Freo on Saturday at Black Rock (not Mordialloc ) and told them he's decided to stay. The whole group were so distraught they then went and lost to Carlton. True story.

  7. Looking at the disposal stats for Weids game on Thursday would be completely unfair to him. He competed hard, and in ruck contests I felt he was at absolute worst 50/50 with his direct opponent. He used his body, did teams things, to me it looked like a much improved version of Weid and certainly something to build on.

  9. After watching that Goal Celebration on Thursday Night, it is very hard to see LJ leave this year. He is winning footy with a bunch of mates, that all work together. That would be a huge bond to break, regardless of monster offers across the border. The MFC will also offer a very nice package We are in a window of Possible Greatness, LJ is a big part of that, Max isn’t getting any younger. If he does leave at years end, i will be sad and a little shocked Mates stick together

  13. Please see my comment above. I was responding to the poster complaining that Majak didn’t do this earlier so we could pick someone up on the mid season draft. I have nothing but respect for Majak and what he’s overcome.

  17. Thanks for those pertinent stats Dazzle. I was at the game and thought BBB played an excellent first quarter. Particularly as Brisbane was pressing hard at the time. In fact, I thought he was in for a big one but, as you say, he faded. Not all posters understand that stats must be read and considered within a context.

  24. Was hoping he would get a look in with Max out. Showed some real promise and played some very good games while at North. Great that the club gave him this chance and hope he isn't completely lost to the club & game.

  25. I think it was still a good indication that he had 2 early shots on goal in the first quarter. The 4 marks in the first quarter alone and 7 disposal still a great starting point which is why I think he was certainly busy in that quarter alone. Finished with 1.3 for the night which to me looks like he's slowly getting back into the groove of hopefully hitting the scoreboard better in the next few week. 2 weeks in a row now he's had 4 shots on goal in each. His form is reminding me of last year when he came back into the side. Just slowly starting to get back into the swing of things.

  27. Fwiw, i watched the replay with a focus on our talls. They all did well at crashing packs, halving contests knocking the ball to advantage. Weid put his body into contests like we haven’t seen before, he competed cleverly in most ruck contests. BBB looked better and worked harder too. jacko is doing fine at plumping his value. I suggest wer go unchanged until MAx is right, the smaller forward setup with different use of the talls seemed to work well for us.

  30. He’s a top 3 handballer in the team too. Can use both hands and understands how to handball on the up. If he can break even in the ruck, crash packs and fire off a few lovely handballs he doesn’t have to hit the scoreboard.

  31. I would call the three of you out for your inherent sexism here but I'm sure you'll just respond by telling me you're not sexist and you just don't like Caro. Of course, I'd rate the chances of you using these words to describe a male journalist at 0.5%.

  34. Scott went on and on about what a good guy Stewart is and not once did he say "we all hope Prestia is ok". Shows you exactly what kind of club Geelong is. Putrid. You want to see remorse? Have a look at Chandler's reaction to his tackle. He was almost in tears and he reached out to the opponent to check he was ok. That is true remorse for a far less intentional act!

  35. Gleeson makes a case that Stewart should have been referred directly to the Tribunal and no grading scale (careless, severe, high) applied thereby leaving it open to the Tribunal to consider the circumstances stewart-s-strife But the MRO/Football Manager rating leaves it open to the Cats to argue that it wasn't 'severe' based on other cases. Can't see the AFL now arguing it should have been rated 'deliberate.' Showing my cynicism but could it be that the Footy Manager was looking after his twin bro by rating it at all. On a related note, while Stewart was apparently upset at 'letting the team down' and supposedly a real good fellow I haven't seen an apology to Prestia or a reference to Stewart checking he was/is ok.

  38. Good luck Majak - so sorry that injury hit at just the wrong time when a replacement ruck was needed for Max. Still your contribution to the whole team effort in Perth for the 2021 finals campaign was invaluable, providing a valuable foil for Max in trying drills and scratch matches. Thanks for your contribution.

  39. You of all people should not be bagging out others in this thread. Have you forgotten about the absolute twaddle you trotted out earlier in this very thread? You couldn't even adequately explain what you meant. Then complained that you were being picked on. If Jackson does leave and Cerra is on our list at the end of the 2022 trade period I will bow down to you as King of the world and pledge my life to you.

  41. Jeez you're hard task marker Nev. If you're judging key forwards on effective disposal as main key criteria then I must be doing it all wrong. Currently working part time in the development league club and I know the coaching staff and AFL recruiters value far more bigger key stat indicators for young developing key forwards such as work rate being the top priority, and the number of contest they're able to get to and from. Coaches will absolutely put a premium on that if your work rate is high the goals will eventually come. I've seen a big Improvement in his work rate and I think eventually the goals will come. Prior to the Pies game I thought his work rate had been poor and hadn't McDonald not been injured I reckon he was close to being dropped.

  42. I'm with you on this SWYL. Brown was a presence around the ground and this debate reminded me of why I like G Lyon as a commentator. He progosticates on what he sees in front of him, with insight as a former great player with a feel for the game, as opposed to say David King who seems to trawl through stats to then come up with a point to make or a theory. Make the facts fit the reality maybe?. No better was this illustrated than the Cats V Tiges call on Saturday, when Lyon smartly called for what the Tiges needed to stem the bleeding, including the move of Baker into the thick of it, and behold it and a few other moves were made by Hardwick. Not a stat quoted by Lyon, just this was how he saw the game strategically. I'm not comparing you SWYL to Lyon btw, just noting similiar appoaches in these instances. Admittedly I'm a big fan of Brown after the fianls series last year, and I think he gets a bad wrap when the ball is dropped on his head and he has trouble. He stays in for the medium term IMO

  48. What I want to see continue is Bedford building a body of work in the role he played Thursday night. He absolutely deserves to retain his spot and could be an important component of the team in this years flag tilt. The other thing is to play Weideman in kahoots with Dogga whilst Maxy' recuperating. Who knows but this could be the circuit breaker role that elevates Weed to the contributor that we've been crying out for. I thought he was far from disgraced as the second ruck against the Lions.

  49. You'd reckon that Port Adelaide might be a bit nervous about the colours on their jumper. Apparently Mr. Frydenberg isn't particularly keen on teal at this point in time.
