Trident (5/10)



  1. Pert has given the sub away during his Fox interview. He said we had 8 players 21 and under in the GF team. Seven players aged 21 and under have been named in the 22 and Jordon being the sub makes 8.
  2. From memory I changed my mind within a week, but don't include that. Another dope added to my ignore list. If we win the flag I may just take everyone off ignore. Probably not.
  3. For the first time in VFL/AFL history two players from the same club tie - Oliver/Petracca.
  4. And as for the absence ? I like arguing. What's there been to argue about this year ?
  5. Yes, I'm confident we'll win. Put simply, our best is better. We have three top 10 players in the league, the best defence (historically very significant), they're tough, and our stars are now in their prime. Of course, there are no guarantees, but there are also no excuses.
  6. OK. Good pick up. I still have a funny feeling he'll be named. Probably nothing...
  7. My gut feel is that Jones will be the sub. I don't usually take much notice of the order of the I/C bench, but it seems poignant to me that they've listed Jones first. This is on the back of stating Jones has been dominating match practice. It would also give his teammates a lift knowing he's part of the team. It also gives them the flexibility to name him again if they get through. And going by his form it's not simply charity.
  8. Are Geelong who lost to Adelaide and Brisbane by 10 goals pretenders ? Are the Dogs, who lost to an undermanned Richmond as well as your ''pretenders'' ? Are Port, who've lost to Geelong, Brisbane, West Coast and the Dogs, i.e. nearly every top 8 team they've played ? This year is very close and there's no super team. Anyone who finishes top 4 can win it and anyone who finishes top 4 will have queries against them. Melbourne are no super team and there are queries. We have 6-7 weeks to start playing better football and finish top 4. If we finish 5th we're cooked.
  9. This will horrify some people on here, but I believe we're a better team with Melksham in it. His form has been average to poor, but I'd still have him ahead of Sparrow. Sparrow is a young player worth persisting with, but he has plenty of time. An in form Melksham makes us infinitely better. In: Melksham Out: Sparrow Lots needs to improve and I understand the calls for Brown, they're understandable, but I'd like to see the smaller version for a couple more weeks.
  10. It doesn't sound far-fetched that a teenager gets homesick. But it also doesn't mean he won't stay. And we don't know the context. There'd be players at every club that get homesick that are able to work through it. I suspect more stay than go despite the occasional pang, or lure of home. That said, he's becoming a valuable commodity, especially if he salutes in the RS award. Obviously, we don't want him to go anytime soon, but at least he's worth plenty and rising. However, getting what someone's worth isn't always easy when you're limited to a two team town.
  11. If you don't have Jackson as Melbourne's best player you best give up football.
  12. How come a Richmond team missing Cotchin, Edwards, Lambert, and Prestia - basically four of their best 5 mids - beat them at the G about 3 weeks ago ? They're not ''scarily good''. There are no superstar teams. There were years ago, not now.
  13. It's a conundrum. We have looked better smaller, but I agree re Viney. Also, the one weakness Footscray have is their tall key backs.
