  1. Alarm bells started ring inside my head as soon as i started seeing videos of players going at full tilt training 2 weeks after the GF had taken place. Absolutely no down time after the GF to let their bodies and minds relax and unwind after what they had achieved. Players weren't able to go away overseas or interstate due to boarder restrictions to unwind. Completely different to this years preparation in terms of down time as players were able to go on a holiday as the world had opened up again.
  2. Same old AFL rehashing old rules into new ones, they can't help them selves.
  3. That was so 2020, ship has well and truely sailed. Good luck finding a club Harley.
  4. He's gone up a couple of notches in my book. Well spoken Maysie.
  5. I reckon he loves the Dees and knows its the place to be for the next 3-5 years and is only using the Powa as contract leverage. Dogga just took the ridiculous money on offer and jumped at the offer without even considering the playing side of things. Got his Premiership medal 🏅 and thought I'll take the cash 💸 and sail into the Fremantle sunset.
  6. If they haven't worked it out now Rab they never will without going to deep into it, what were the police doing and thinking in regards to patrolling the outside of the ground? Instead of around the playing perimeter of the stadium especially behind the Victory End! Absolute farcical. The safety of the Players and Fans is absolutely paramount, i still dont understand it. Its the attention to detail that has hurt the sport on a number of occasions. Who ever was or is in charge of stadium security and Policing should have been sacked that night.
  7. Unusual but true KITP, pretty sure they wore Ankle high boots in Rugby also. Without World Football innovation AFL Football would be years behind. That was my point KITP. 👉 Certain parts of society just can't handle the connotations of the World game. Don't get it twisted though I love both AFL Football and World Football. I understand people don't like it for whatever reason but tend to voice it with the usual [censored] every 4 years around the same time a certain tournament is being played. Those idiots that ran on the field and caused harm to others Saturday night deserve what they get, lets get that straight. Don't understand the bigotry toward the game to be honest, alot of training, tactical and innovational practices are highly sought after. AFL Coaches, Fitness Guru's, Management increase their learnings to emulate their overseas counterparts. Just go and ask our Premiership Fitness Guru Darren Burgess the amount he has learnt from the World Game.
  8. I wonder what boots all the AFL players wear theses days? I wonder which country and continent the Adidas and Puma factories hail from? Is it still ankle boot lace ups? or perhaps the AFL Puma boot that Jason Dunstall use to promote and never wore and for good reason. AFL, amateur and grassroots players nationwide seem to like the look and feel of the "soccer" designed boots theses days or for the past 40 years. Puma King Adidas Copa Mundials Nike Tiempo Adidas Predator Asics Gel I could go on........ I think the AFL has alot to thank soccer for, because if it wasnt for soccer designed technology, your favourite Demons Clayton Oliver, Christian Petracca, Bayley Fritsch etc. wouldn't be running around in the latest Nike Tiempo's designed and worn by some of the "Enemies" greatest players. AFL takes alot of ideas from the NFL "Yanks" but the players seem to prefer the "Enemies" designed equipment. Im sure those shoulder pads and helmets would come in handy with AFL club logos on them.......
  9. Alice is always good for a trip and for the locals, helps our bottom dollar and as long as we keep winning up there its not an issue in fans and now the clubs book. Good to see the footy department was consulted before the board made its decision. Great news. Well done MFC.
  10. Mine turned up last Tuesday in Radelaide.
  11. Friggen love chocco.🥰 Brings in Kozzie's best mate, stroke of Genius.
  12. Collingwood's Doctor would have been in all sorts then, they had injuries in the 3 qtr in most games they played in this season.
  13. Congratulations Dees Premiers 2022, well done to Mick and his crew. Over to you Men be the first club to hold both the Womens and Mens comps. I hope the respective governments are watching this and give us the necessary funding to build a complex in our heartland all interstate and Melbourne members can enjoy. Our great club deserves this. Eliza West BOG.
  14. The Ground itself is still in use by the Crows AFL and AFLW teams, but the stadium has been torn down for a few years now.
  15. Surely we are one of the best 12 teams in the comp?
  16. They won't waste a showdown for Magic round. 6 of those games are slated for Adelaide Oval. The other 3 game will involve GWS, GC, Norf, etc, 1 will be at Norwood Oval, 1 in the Barossa Valley and the other is still not known, maybe south of the city Noarlunga Oval or regional SA (Riverland, McClaren Vale etc.
  17. Rick Lever was hobbling around in the Brisbane Semi, he wasn't right to play after his calf injury.
  18. Surely Staf isn't rolling around as Forward's coach in 2023?
  19. Those Powa figures are largely inflated/skewed due to the fact they played a home game against the Crows at Adelaide Oval on a Friday Night. That crowd was 20k, if you take that game and play it at Alberton Oval their home ground they would be lucky to get 5k.
  20. Didn't even read it to know this is the biggest load of [censored] I've ever seen.
  21. Apologies they did win one in 2018.
