  1. PoorvJimmy Jordon didn’t make the seconds!
  2. Does anyone know if the game is being streamed anywhere?
  3. Was there a detectable rise after the SEN radio Melbourne Membership day?
  4. I saw it today. Mainly newly laid turf. ? transfer game to the scene of our ‘87 triumph, the Western Oval?……..surely not!
  5. I noticed in an email that Penfolds has joined MFC as a sponsor. I tried to investigate the MFC to see what are the terms of this deal, and also whether their were benefits for MFC Members. I could find NO mention of Penfolds on the MFC website. Perhaps I missed it. Couldn't find anything on Demonland, either. So I tried googling MFC/Penfolds and found MFC Members can get a significant discount by using the promo code "MELBOURNE". ( about 18% on certain bundles). Why has there been so little publicity for such a prominent and desirable sponsor? Also ,didn't we have another wine company sponsor recently.? I presume this supersedes them. Surely we should be delighted to have Penfolds on board, and do everything possible to nurture, and perhaps upgrade the association in the future. I just checked again, and found that Penfolds ARE listed with the official partners. So the above is not correct, but I still think a little more exposure would be advisable.
  6. He turns 19 in a couple of weeks....so that might be one reason why his physical development is quite advanced. (compared to the recruits who have just turned 18)
  7. It was such bad luck that the live stream cut out just before interesting questions were asked. Amazing coincidence , really.
  8. Oh darn!! The streaming stopped just when we were getting to the interesting part,discussing the resolution , and questions.
  9. Another interesting revelation at the training/sponsor function was that Joel Smith is going to play forward this season. A pretty hard forward line to fit into. Also , Choco said he has taken over as goal-kicking coach. I’m surprised he wasn’t that before…..but it’d be great if he makes a difference to that facet of our game.
  10. Perhaps they all tried tunnel-ball (like Jack F!??!!)
  11. This is killing me! I really want to know the answer. ???something to do with their first games? Or first season. ??something about Finals? I don't think it's to do with their numbers. Perhaps their playing positions?? AAARGH!!! I can't bear it....but I'll keep thinking!
  12. Nathan Brown exuded sheer guts. I was full of admiration. I think he missed the Bluey by one vote . ? to Jeff White
  13. Flight probably cancelled on the way there,then delayed 3 hours on the way back.
  14. I can’t believe you’re happy to go to Geeelong again!
  15. Brisbane were given a dream start by the umps, with repeated mysterious frees bringing the ball to their forward line. Later, I felt that the rundown tackle on (?) Fitzsimmons in the goal square was either a trip or a push in the back. She managed to get a foot to the ball before it bounced, but the ump couldn't see that so paid holding the ball. Also the pass by West to (?) Fitzy again which was called not 15 metres was a bit rough.It would have been a fairly easy shot for goal. We could have beaten 'em 4 goals to nil! Someone must have alerted the umps at three quarter time that t hey were giving the Dees a rough trot, and they gave us an armchair ride in Q4!
  16. I thought Lauren Pearce did a great job in the ruck, and should be included in the best players.
  17. Is Craig Goodwin related to Simon? They’re both from Adelaide.
  18. Is our goal scorer related to Simon Goodwin? I see he plays for Adelaide in the A League
  19. I was at the game, and it was VERY windy, affecting the standard greatly. So Dees fans shouldn't be too worried about the low standard footy leading into the GF. I have since watched the replay on TV , and it' s not nearly as obvious on TV how difficult the conditions were. Also, i was surprised when one commentator said that North would have the wind in Q4. I'm dead sure it was easier kicking to the Royal Parade end.
  20. I am surprised Gillard wasn't mentioned in our best players. I thought she repelled many attacks.
  21. Norm Smith must be chuffed to be on the interchange with those champs!
  22. I've forgotten whether it has been mentioned in this thread, but a common fault which crops up repeatedly is the following..... "I can't underestimate his value to the team". Really one can't OVERestimate his value to the team, if you think he's really good! He must be useless if you can't UNDERestimate his value! Have other pedants noticed this?
  23. I think that Tomlinson was best in the AFL stat for "one on ones" when he did his ACL in 2021.
