    Yeh depends on how you want to look at it.

    Im going with glass half full, you seem to be more of a pessimist?

    Tmacs body has been breaking down since he hurt his back midway 2021. He's had several issues with his ankle and a number of surgeries on it. It's plain and clear that this is now affecting him as he can barely turn or break out into a gallop. It was embarrassing watching him in both finals.

    Brown knees are just simply cooked. There's no further explanation needed.

    In some good news generally players in their final years play above expectation, so fingers crossed we can actually get something out of one of these two next year.

    Or they coast through the emotions knowing it's their last year knowing that they'll be pulling the socks up at VFL level.

    Professional sport is often a game of centimetres. Everything done or not done can have enormous ramifications on the result.

    Clarry is my favourite player so let me put that out there first. But I agree with Selwood and Cotchin, that what he did was just dumb. Getting Cripps off the ground, in that last quarter, could have seen us in a PF and maybe even a GF.

    It was not the time or place to be a nice guy. Cripps, imo would not have done the same. His scragging and occasional  hard physical acts, show a determination to win at all costs.

    Do we forgive guys who don’t go when it is their opportunity? Collingwood is in the GF. Look at how many of their players are prepared to hurt opponents. Maynard, Cox, Adams and Mihocek often snipe and even Pendles, yes Pendles will “innocently “ hurt players and even Nick Daicos gut punched a Giant and buried Daniels head first, which put him off the ground in the vital last few minutes.

    Winners are grinners. Ask our Coaches if they are happy with Clarry’s gesture. Ask his team mates.

    No, for me it was a dumb act, from not one of our brightest.

    Agree 100% red.

    You have to use up every little advantage you can take in a game even if it's the small percentage as you say. This was a cut throat final and our season hanging in the balance. Oliver needed to say something to the umpire. There is a blood rule for a reason and why he didn't decide to call him out to the umpire is mind blowing. 

    We're just not a ruthless footy club unfortunately. People can say what they want about Selwood and Cotchin but their success record comes of the back of setting a ruthless standard on and off the field.

    When you have Jack Viney the only one willing to fly the flag against Maynard by himself the week prior then that speaks volume in itself.

    Interesting comments from Tom Morris regarding senior players acknowledging they’d like to see some fresh voices around Goodwin:


    Players sound like they're bored of Goodwin and the same game plan that he's been running two years straight and are simply wanting fresh voices. We've ran with this coaching structure since the end of 2020.

    Big off season coming up for Goody. If he doesn't make changes he could easily lose the players

    That's not correct.

    Players can retire and agree on a lesser sum, for not having to do all the training/playing and that agreed amount can then be brought forward to free up space for the following season. They don't have to be paid in full.

    If the club is forcing a player to retirement which in this case many are hoping for then the player absolutely has the right to receive majority of his payout excluding incentives because it's the club instigating the decision and not the player.

    Player doesn't have to agree to the decision especially if they're still in contract.

    People saying that getting rid of them will free up money are wrong.  The Players don’t just walk away from contracts and not get paid.  They have a year left and I dare say both will see out their contracts, unless an agreement is reached and the funds will still be included in the TPP.

    If they walk away from the club it means there is an agreement between player and club that they're paid out in full of every cent remaining of their contract.

    So yes, it would free up cap space immediately.

    A grade is a bit of a reach for 22 players

    it’s a term thrown around too often to describe players. There’s no harm building a list with hard working competitive B graders who play 200+ games and having four to half a dozen A graders to ice the cake.

    Hardeman is a great worker, runner and foot skills are pretty good but can’t ever see him being A grade

    Well said 👏

    If Tmac stays and gets a game in the seniors then it's season over before it starts

    I would prefer him spending the whole year down at Casey educating and developing our younger forward crop.

    But I agree, if he plays it means we've been absolutely decimated with injuries 2019 style.

    One plus for Melbourne about father Adem’s appointment as Richmond coach is that it frees Noah up as a potential father/son draft prospect without the added pressure of having his dad at the club. 

    The rate he's going he'll be lucky to get on an AFL list.

    Top age next year so still water to go under the bridge but he'll need to put in a big off season to put himself into draft calculations.

    There is stuff above from Nudge that has come true and stuff that didn’t come through, that’s nothing unusual.   Not every rumour put out there comes off but it doesn’t mean it was never a chance of happening.

    It’s called a rumour page for a reason and not a fact page 



    Haha okay mate

  12. Retire Brown. Can't afford to carry a player that is constantly missing games each year due to cooked knees.

    I'd happily trade/retire McDonald but I think he stays purely for depth and being a long time servant of the club they'll want to do the right thing by him.

    I can’t say — as in I don’t know. But we can all hope and dream! But I walked away with knowledge that either Dees or Saints were gonna have a big big win this off-season, as that’s what I was lead to blv, but fact club are trying super hard is enough for me as I have faith if they have a plan, they’ll execute.

    This you as well? Strike rate about at about 0.2%

    Demons have something cooking… had one of the most heartwarming wry grins I’ve seen in a LONG time last night —- in response to a question about how we’re gonna fill these list spots & why were no longer in frame for pick 4 — suddenly I feel warm and fuzzy inside…


    Lets hope it wasn’t just to perk me up a bit.. keep an eye on the headlines folks!



    Aren't you well known on here over the years for completely making stuff up and having a zero strike rate??
