  1. Aint being dropped - playing his role. I love how opposition coaches now need to stress about matching up against Brown, Fritsch, Jackson, TMAC as talls alone - I wouldnt want that headache
  2. Right on, maybe I'm deluded from years of watching this team however again I felt we should have won by another 3-4 goals. I think we have another level
  3. 2000 we had a brilliant team - gets lost because of how good Essendon was. I know footy was more open back then however we destroyed teams that year on the scoreboard. This is the most complete Dees team I've seen however it needs to make the GF first to be considered the best IMHO
  4. Last time we won a prelim we beat the team who was ageing and on the way down, North. So history can repeat for mine, let's play the cats
  5. All the players are saying it, it's about playing your role. TMac had a role and he played it. Great job Joeboy
  6. Did the job - turned the corner for the home straight. Here we go...
  7. Congrats Nibbler - here is to the next 100
  8. I only fear the bottom 4 sides
  9. Don't jump off, he will be back.
  10. A huge loss although softened so,ewhat as the replacement has been mentored by Burgo. Was always surprised Dees attracted Burgo in the first place
  11. The forward line set up worked well early in the year when the weather was warmer and we were flicking the ball around. In the heavier conditions of wimter a key forward is a must from a structural perspective. Doesn't make it essential in September however
  12. Anyone else notice a fair bit of bagging between our players when shots were sprayed. Player has a shot and others arms go up complaining you didn't kick to me
  13. Salem May Fritsch Trac Lever T Mac
  14. Asked someone the same question yesterday. Was surprised how exhausted Melbourne players looked compared to the Giants players. Also little explosive power displayed.
  15. others need to step up - if one injury impacts your season, you never had a season
  16. May and Lever didn't get votes in the Age? LOL
  17. I remember 10 years ago we had all these supposed match winners and no one to win the ball. Didnt work out too well for us then. I think Oliver's skillset is essential from a team balance, however at a price. Hawthorn and Geelong players sacrified $$ for success - im watching with interest
  18. I always enjoy this thread, shows how different we see the game. Hunt was a liability at several times however such is the need for run off half back I fear he will continue to play there although to me he is a forward. Sparrow and Jones both mixed good with bad yesterday so one of those goes out for Viney for mine.
  19. Plenty of love here - symbolised that 2000 team perfectly, was underrated and rarely lost a battle during that year. Unfortunately his knee gave way the very next year. Lever did look great Monday, May has been mint for the past year, however its after these 2 where the headaches start. Though Tomlinson may be a surprise
  20. I watched it, taking it with a grain of salt TBH. He said it, then took a dig at Max directly which seemed unfounded (although others may know more) and then noted that Dees will be better when injured midfielders get back. Standards are hard to judge unless you are at the club
