  1. no heads were banged, no heads were shaken. nanny comments in the media. soon you will all be following soccer. Oh hang on, they're all half stupid by the time they're 21, because of heading that round thing thru for a goal.
  2. Spot on gonzo, & mummy tried to get lower. But Tippet had nowhere to turn, & he tried to lower his body, or head rather. It was a sort of 'snuggle move', by the Tipper. They are trying to totally sterilise the game. Let men be men, & let women be women, fcs.
  3. If thew Chinese don't like our 'longtime' monika, then we can look elsewhere, for our finances.
  4. Trying to get mummy sited for a couple of classic tackles. Leave the game to the men Caro. Its gone backwards in recent years, because of politically correct nannies trying to cottonwool the game. no heads were banged up Caro, leave the game be contact. There will be some brushes.
  5. Absolutely deefella. we have to have a strong finish to this season.
  6. Port are going to become the Dragons. just ask Caro. Kochie's Dragons
  7. Cloke concerns me, the opposition big guys have confidence against, & look forward to playing the Deez. Because we traditionally don't physically crunch them. They look forward to playing us, to get their mojo going. And their stats up. I'm not sure Dunny will get the job 'done', as it were. So Frosty with his speed & height (can play tall), may be needed for Cloke, &/or Grundy venturing down there. So I think Dunny can take Moore, or Oscar could take him.
  8. it wasn't a throw of the elbow or anything it was just a block. & not a deliberate action but a reaction. from surprise & defence. There was no force in it, at all. We should fight it, get it down to a fine.
  9. Gerards always got a soft spot for the Dees. Even if he doesn't show it. But his best memories by far, are up in Sydney, surf & all. Bit like Schwarta, some years back. IMO the footy dept is working well... we are seeing results. But it will start to show on the scoreboard, soon. When it clicks, & we get confidence individually, & team wise, we will launch.
  10. confidence my dear Bbo, he has now shown he will 'go' when he wants to... so now, when they all start to click together, we need this side to have a kill. to get the blood on they're lips. I just hope it isn't 'hardwik' we kill off. but do want to win that game. please Dees, lets put the sword to e'd's club, & leave them Buckley's chance.
  11. yep, frustrated I couldn't get the video feed, but I heard it on radio. clearly frustrated the commentators as well.
  12. good points Prb. The ability of these guys to run thru the game is a concern, Re how many we have in the one team. I wonder if ANB has a superior capacity to Wagner, at this stage? On the MCG, we need more pace as well, compared to Hobart.
  13. wouldn't be against Pedo, 'run with' on Grundy all game. Gawn to rest in pocket, between ruck duties. Frost or Omac in defence? Brayshaw's gotta be in,,, Garlett if fit, straight in. Grimes for maturity. & Its time for ANB. So INS; Brayshaw Garlett, Grimes, Pedo/OMac, -------- Outs; Vince, AVdb, Frost, Wagner, emerg: ANB, Pedo,
  14. The culture of the team & list is changing for the better... But, the culture of 'the club', is the same. That is the culture of the support base, that effects the players over periods of time, wearing down the gains made, like the waves on the beach, lapping at the sand.. This is how the team culture starts to "eek away", time after time, after its been repaired. This is what I've been aiming at. The constant erosion of our players meanness, & hunger. The same thing that makes Us more 'squeaky clean', than all other AFL clubs, by FAR. IT is this ^ , the reason why we continually turn our players into "bruise free". And this Is the reason why players who are confident in they're own abilities, won't come to the 'squeaky clean' Melbourne footy club, unless for huge payouts. Its a bad career move for the same reasons. .... no success. 'bruise free' choir boys, (about a sliding scale of 5 years) after whichever past-coach has just re-fired our passions & deesires, then left us.
  15. Thanks Farmer, great post. Anger is to often thrown about at others, out of frustration, or contempt for a differing position. This club needs to get fierce, aggressive about our footy, & against opponents of us. Not of our own. IMO positive criticism's OK, for reason to achieve beneficial change. Many here just find lashing out irresistible. that is anger. and needs managing. ---------------------------------- About the weekends game,,, wow. I missed the1st Qtr, but heard the scores.... Then the fightback... fantastic to be able to fightback, & too hold that aggression thru the remainder of the game.
  16. no, no no no. lets not get too .... he put the elbow up with no force... it was not a "thrown elbow" ... somewhere between a block & a reach, with no force. Yes. you should always be able to put the forearm up as defence. but you should have to bare the responsibility of over doing it. So if injuries occur, the careless player should miss the same 'injury time', as the casualty.
  17. ins/ pederson/oMac, garlett & brayshaw. outs/ frost, wagner, vandenberg
  18. When I was a kid Melbourne & Essendon were both on 12 Premierships apiece. And had a rivalry like something fierce. We were a fierce club... but little did I realise at that time, that we were changing from 'within' at our head of business offices. T The environment that had Power over our club was changing in a way that would take us down from the great 'fierce years', supplied to us by 'Checker Hughes'. Which we IMPORTED from Tiger-land. Enter the fierce attitude from 'Checker', together with the MCG's pulling power to attract players who wanted to play on the 'G', & we were a Power in AFL footy. ..... the ridding of 'Smithy', rid the club of this Fierce attitude. It slowly withered on the 'vine', as we went along like a ship without a rudder. Now it is only recorded in the history books, that this 'RednBlue' once feared jumper, was a once a Power house of a club. I feel so sad that its once strength, over in the North, is now killing it kindly. >>> Here, is a little tale which the modern 'Northeners' can soothe our players with after the teams Losses, over in the northern social areas.
  19. Te attitude that afflicts our players once they've been here a little while is a too refined culture. the same attitude that doesn't want our players to rough up opponents. Our club does not suffer any player being a bit wayward, a bit rough, a bit dirty, any thing like these. Its like our club is too 'churchy', 'too religious', too squeaky clean. & too much a pushover on the field.
  20. The list isn't the problem... the problem is the culture that infects our boys once they arrive. that softens them.
  21. They don't dislike the Melbourne Footy Club, they dislike the 'holier than thou attitude', that has taken this once great club hostage. The smugness & attitudes found in the stands. these are what hurts us all.
  22. This ^ ^ ^ is spot on, but these are the symptoms that show, because of the Chronic Illness that has left this club bereft of diverse patrons & ideas. Its 'inbred minded' club culture among its patrons. Mostly, those left are well off & over the other side of the ground Nth, & have a denigrating view off all that happens around the place. A superior holier than thou attitude. = choir boys, who end up wanting everything easy. = reflection of the things valued by the support group in contact with players after games, IMO. this club is dying because its grass roots support base has been gradually slowly squeezed out over the past 5 decades. that same 5 decades where money & investments have become 'KING of all DEEsires'... amongst Dees players.. more important than winning & the Pride that comes from winning Premierships... No these guys are winning all the time win lose or draw,,, with the pride they receive/feel after games And people wonder why our players play soft for big money. And then laugh after losses !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why care when you are on easy street & you get your mental 'back & shoulders' rubbed after games by all & sundry.... top career guaranteed to follow. .this is a big part of why this club has lost its HUNGER & fearsome tenacity to win, & grind opponents down. Why we are only 'Front Runners' when we are talented, & under produce, in the AFL.' This lack of regular success also happened at our Club, shown in the numbers, before 'Checker' arrived at our club & changed it, & since 'Norm Smith' was gotten Rid of... by those 'Politically Correct' quietly spoken types, that have taken over the North. .
