  1. Good stuff. Even if he is cooked by that last year, it smooths the salary out and sets us up to have a real crack for the next few years.
  2. Thanks, wasn’t aware of the 28 days. We might have been on track until the last few days where a few cases popped up. Oh well, can’t complain. Unlike those still in Vic, if things remain the same we can have a BBQ or get to the pub and watch with some other Dees fans.
  3. To any other Queensland based members, what are the chances of WA downgrading Queensland from “low risk” to “very low risk”?I’m guessing bugger all after a few recent cases popped up? Im tossing up getting a ticket on the minuscule chance we get downgraded sometime in the next 2 weeks and don’t have to quarantine.
  4. Block the blocker. Sounds silly but I know exactly what you mean, Schache was very important. Also, we can’t let Naughton fly for marks like he did last night. He had a free run at it waaay too many times. Hopefully May is 100% fit in a fortnight’s time.
  5. I would have been confident with any other opponent, but it’s a genuine 50/50 against the doggies. It’s a pity Brisbane couldn’t finish them off last week. In saying that, it’s a big match up with star players everywhere, even the neutrals are excited for this one. Can’t wait.
  6. I stayed off the footy sites all week because I was so bloody nervous. I don’t know why I was nervous, we looked the clearly the better team from the opening bounce. It feels amazing to not just beat those bunch of [censored], but to absolutely embarrass them.
  7. Brayshaw is growing into the wing role. He was excellent tonight and is an underrated one on one player. May kept Daniher goalless for the first time this year. Sparrow was superb. Rivers did a lot of small scrappy things that broke up Brisbane attacks. TMac isn’t quite there atm, but will likely stay for structure rather than risk Weideman who has barely played and has been poor when he has. Smith had a tough job tonight and stuck at it well. He is borderline though for Hunt or Hibberd.
  8. Easily the best Melbourne side of my lifetime. As much as I fondly remember some players from that early 2000s side, we currently have 3 of the top 10 players in the game, 2 of the best defenders in the game and a lot of young talent to round it out.
  9. Selfishly, I hope they decide to play in Queensland, but I reckon our best shout is Adelaide in terms of our record there, the climate, the travel etc. Obviously that doesn't apply if we host a game against Port, although that would be a power move to beat them at the Adelaide Oval 🤔
  10. I’ve got $1 in my Sportsbet account, but I do have a pending bet on Luke Jackson at $15. My account has a pulse.
  11. I don't recall that Moloney incident, anyone got any footage? As for Viney, it all comes down to what Sam Collins has to say. It looked bad, but judging by his reactions, I'm not sure there was much pressure on there at all. Silly either way from Viney to put himself in trouble,
  12. Bowey looked right at home, although the test will come when he actually has to defend as Gold Coast offered nothing today. Oliver’s 1st half was top shelf, even by his lofty standards.
  13. The title on that MFC link says “Dees to head to the Gold Coast” even though it’s venue TBC?
  14. Petracca needs some serious work on his disposal, which has been atrocious for most of the season. What happened to the bull last year that would use his strength to break tackles and give himself the time to compose before kicking? This year he is rushing it straight onto the boot and the results are not good.
  15. You can have one bad performance against one of the poorer sides, it can happen, but the pattern of performances against good opposition vs bad opposition is damning. We are clearly a better football side than previous years, but there are still some serious issues between the ears. I don’t know why I hadn’t already, but I turned it off as soon Jack Viney mentioned “learnings” in the post game interview.
  16. A draw is far from a disaster (the result that is, not the performance)
  17. I know I'm in the minority and this won't be popular, but I believe the future is 16 a side with shorter quarters. The game was invented over 150 years ago, and it wasn't invented with 18 aerobic beasts in mind that can clog up every blade of grass on the ground. I'd rather a couple of drastic changes to "reset" things rather than all these confusing rules like zones coming and going every year. There you have it. Give me your best.
  18. 6 - Petracca 5 - McDonald 4 - Petty 3 - Gawn 2 - Oliver 1 - May That was tough, but I really feel like Petty deserved special praise. That was his best game in the seniors. Hibberd and Pickett were both fantastic as well.
  19. Wines may have had 30, but every single one was under extreme pressure. I reckon Viney was very good tonight.
  20. Speaking of tennis, it always [censored] me when they just toss their sweaty gross towel behind them after every point. Not sure how it’s become the norm for the ball kids to ferry them their towel after every point of a match.
  21. Pressure and intensity way off in the first half, and got we deserved from a side outside the 8, yet again. Pisses me off, we are a better team than previous years, but the same old soft underbelly is still there.
  22. Can’t buy a clean clearance. Getting what we deserve.
  23. Can’t believe the comments about Jackson’s consistency. He has been super consistent, and has barely had a bad game. If anything, he’s lacking that massive break out game that would seal the deal. I have comfortably ahead of Jordon and Rivers, who have both also been very good this year.
  24. I would have loved a more commanding performance. Failing that, a scrappy win with some dubious umpiring was my second choice, just so we could hear the sooking from the Essendon fans. Honestly, they complain every week. They are something else.
