  1. Can we leave Joel Smith in Perth with a note 'Free to any home, otherwise throw out'
  2. Firstly, how the fudge did Brad Miller get selected, and in the backline ?
  3. I don't think Bedford's 5 or 6 disposals warrants AFL promotion. He was barely sighted No small fwd for Casey based on the weekend would warrant selection. Jones, Melk and Bowey are the only running players that deserve promotion, and based on needs, it could be Melk then Jones.
  4. This is not a change of personnel but rather a thought towards change of tactic. Is there any logic in getting on the front foot and sending Harmes to DeBoer to stop the usual tag of Oliver. Tag the tagger out the game. I feel Harmes could negate him and win on the offensive side. Thoughts ?
  5. Forgetting but not discounting the defensive needs of our fwds for a moment, If we were to stay a mobile fwd line with TMac and Dogga as the main talls. I would keen to have a look at arrangement with Declase rolling through there and would like (an invested) Melksham too. I feel that would add a level of connection and skill to the fwds that is dearly needed.
  6. Jones & B Brown could be considered based on their game today and our needs. Bowey is going to be a really really good link up player. He may not break into the defence this year though with this being his development year, watch this guy in 2022 after another preseason and year in the Demons system. His ball use and vision is classy. Rosman was solid on the wing. Vanders got better as the game wore on. Melk was ok and creative. But lets talk about Declase. He got better and better and better as that game went on was in everything in the second half. He reminds me of outside-mid version of Jeremey Howe, covers the ground with ease and a player that our AFL team would weaponize.
  7. AO crowds this year, removing the showdown, crowds are approx. 30,000 people. at 55K + capacity, how the &^&%$ is so difficult to purchase a decent seat. Whine over...... On the Hill it is :-)
  8. trying to get 2 tickets and they want $90 a ticket for shizenhouse nosebleeds !!!! Standing on the hill it is ($40 each)
  9. I follow all the steps and don't even get Q sections as an option. Been trying for 20 mins and it feels like no free tickets are left. M31 and M35 behind goals want $28 each after following advice above. (M32-34 not available now) Minimal other sections shown are more expensive $50+. [censored] this BS system.
  10. wholeheartedly agree, as good as a stable team would be, a freshen up is needed for Geelong.
  11. Lets not wait for losses, anytime by the end of the week would work.
  12. Melksham (at his best) in 2018 was very important to how well we played and our set up of attack on the score board. Not the be-all, and end-all of that campaign, but important. Cant live in the past however so if he can get that back (with what is hopefully a reasonably normal 2021 season), that is huge for us. If not, he must be dropped and other players provided ample opportunity to shine.
  13. Steve Hocking may not be able to remember signing it off. Seems to the flavor of 2020.
  14. Can anyone clarify please? With respect to comments about potentially bundling pick 33 plus ?? to the doggies for an upgrade, is that even allowed? The 33 we just received from Adelaide was originally the Doggies pick.

  16. knowing Dodo at Ess...... he'll probably offer pick 79 and still want something in return.
  17. Didn't he have repeated issues with his big toe at some point. Could that have taken the edge off his spring an agility a bit causing his stagnation ? His turning circle now is about as good as a Mitsubishi Magna.
  18. Roos joins panel ? Panel receives no applications ? Roos takes job ?
  19. very skilled player that struts around nowadays in his own world, but worse yet, by the nature of his play he displays a lack of confidence in his team mates. There is a ball getter, and then there is danger (I should be the only one with the ball)
  20. #44 is not a footballers bum dot .......period. Clearly does not have a football brain and how he gets a game, let alone on a list is unfathomable.
  21. Confirming your hope..... You're wrong.... chill time. So many interstate players that are not playing in their native towns remain at their new clubs far outweigh the odd couple that want to shift back.
  22. Don't have a suggestion though this is an interesting situation. Given we have no other picks to really bundle up and move 28 higher (exclude 97 as it is valueless), this articles says Melbourne are 1 or 4 clubs hamstrung and cannot trade future picks on Draft night unless a 2020 first round comes back to us https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/afl-draft-2019-future-picks-2020-draft-indicative-draft-order/news-story/9d34c5ddb8cc52e6b8b52310da7979dd This simple means either we are taking someone at 28..... or some other creativeness will be required with 10 to move 28 up.
  23. Yes his kicking leaves a bit to be desired but his ability with follow up and win ground ball is unquestionable. Still it's a risky move at 3.
