  1. So we have one of the premier forwards in the present game! Well down MFC. Good hands, hard to match up on, works at his craft, kicks straight, loves to lead. I can see him getting on well with Max. Seems to have similar natures. Not aggressive, though determined and maybe a bit of character. Hopefully fits into our team of comraderie and connection. Would love to see some aggro and ruthlessnes, perhaps others can bring that, We are looking a tall team, with most of them quite agile. Bring on the craft, Go Dees.
  2. I am the one sitting next to Blair, dark hair. Which one are you moose? @MrMoose Brings back memories. He also played for E.Malvern as the full forward. Couldn't run easily, but was always kicking goals.
  3. Would love to see the AFL/MCC decision makers let us use it occasionally. The ground keeper could indicate when the surface is good, during minimal game weeks. The session should be private/closed., (no security risks) as we can't have closed sessions at either Gosch or Casey. The argument for the other clubs is, why not allow them to use the number one ground and our spiritual home sometimes, as Gosch's is sub-standard. Allow us to get some home ground advantage, like the majority of clubs have. Some of our home games are interstate and at Marvel, which adds a bit of a b
  4. Bring him back to the MFC. Get Burgess to work with him physically and Gawn to motivate him. Set him up as an assistant coach if he can't crack it. He did get to observe Hinkley's methods.
  5. Great to hear them talk about wanting to make finals. Not just making up the numbers, but wanting and voicing, top of the ladder. I remember them saying in 2018, that they did not talk about finals. Goody said, "no fluffing around, accepting close". Heard no fu.k.ng around at first. Thought I heard Oliver say he wanted to thank him "self". He said he wanted to thank Soph. Both made me chuckle.
  6. I've attempted to contact the administrator via the "contact us", for them to help delete the mis-information I wrote. Thank you for the heads up Ethan. Much appreciated.
  7. A dunny with a view would be mint. Put a few in a row, rooms with a view. We could be MFCSS, Melbourne football club [censored] storm crew. Put some of them up on a pedestal, the top shelves, create a pooing (pecking) order and they can urinate on the club from upon high. Just joking, supporter bitterness comes and goes like the tide at the sewage works. We could be a river to the people.
  8. I want to see training facilities that are equivalent to the other clubs.
  9. On a walk in India, a women ahead stops on the path and drops the deuce. I was shocked and somewhat disgusted. In Paris they are finding semi discreet places (the walls near the Siene). The aroma fills the morning air. Similar to the lanes near Aussie hotels. In Australia it is an illegal act. The club could have a zero tolerance policy and set good examples to the community.
  10. MFC the destination club, you to can squat and use a tent to train out of.
  11. Quite often the other ovals are used by, soccer and rugby teams. Therefore no direct route.
  12. The start was about someone trying to embarrass an AFL person, with photo of public urination. I indicated that the urination is flowing down at Gosch's, on a regular basis and they should be embarrassed by our amateur facilities. I finished by indicating that we have a sideshow of training facilities and could go hubless. A truck and a tent, no wonder we underperform!
  13. Was thinking, they could take the training on the road, with the truck and tent system. Invite the juniors and seniors, and include workshops for the local coaches and administrators. Would not be much different to what they do in The Alice. Become a modern community club by showing off our drills and procedures to the grass root AFL (inner suburb, outer suburb and regional area). Give back to the many.
  14. They don't use it and it seems they aren't instructed to use it by either elders or the leaders. Probably 4 mins if they ran! Takes me the 10 mins.
  15. You are right, though, I have not seen them use either or return to Aami Park. It would mean a ten minute disruption to the group, They choose to hold it or let it out "bush" style. Need a porta loo on site. A proper change room, a secure place to keep their personal belonging and some sort of shelter for all staff and players during inclement weather, should be the minimum of facilities. There is no effective place for physio work. A place to sit down, talk and to review video immediately, I thought, would help. Then get out on the field and repeat. (Especiall
  16. It is, as a victim of drug (alcohol) fuelled exuberances it is revolting. Lived in a tourist/holiday town. Regularly people came near or in the front yard to urinate when they are [censored]. I'm sure the drug takers have done it without any discretion. Though, the issue is a zoom photo of the MFC player squatting or at the tree. We need facilities.
  17. In some states, you can pass on your own car.
  18. It embarrassing for the club, the players, the AFL, and myself, that our players are always urinating in public. I find myself having to look away and pretend I didn't notice. Sets a bad example. The law says you can't. With substandard, facilities we will be an irrelevant club!
  19. Gold Coast coach Stuart Dew in urinating video, reportedly deliberately leaked The link is to indicate urinating in public that the AFL are embarrassed about. Down at Gosch's paddock there are no facilities. I have seen numerous players urinating in public. Squatting or behind trees is the usual method. Why do we have substandard training facilities? Nearest toilet is a 4 minute walk away. A ten minute disruption to the group. Someone could easily expose the MFC players if they felt very vindictive. Ten in the morning is a better look than o
  20. Agree with the sentiments. I don't know the answers. Hoping those who get paid, do!
  21. Not sure if I want to influence them! I will let them do their jobs. Hopefully, they do what they believe is the right thing. The Bartlett spray would indicate that they are not to happy. Keep progressing MFC. We are getting closer.
  22. Thought the word this week was, "ruthless". Ruthless to me, means "putting them to the sword". We had the chance and stopped. We really are softies. I heard Lever talking about ruthless, he kinda indicated, it was in the preparation, the process. I'd like to see us show no mercy in the game. Petracca can swing the momentum, as can Oliver, Viney used to be able to. I thought we played keeping off well. Though, when it came to going, we couldn't transition to fast again. Need to work on their tempo and rhythm. They aren't on the same page! Good backline again.
  23. Had a chance to prove we are ruthless. What did we do? No effort or desperation, back to doing just enough. Fourth quarter blitz, get our game going in case we make finals.
  24. Roped the dope. Ess, had the impression after the first, that it was all too easy. Now to see if ruthlessness is in our game. We should go on with it and win the next two quarters. Mids working well, the team finding space, great pressure and tackling. Liked that we tried a different game plan in the first and then got into our fast style in the second. Need to be able to switch it up during the quarter.
  25. Noticed on last nights Fox AFL program, video of Freo training in Cairns and the dogs on the gold Coast. Hoping the acclimatisation helps Freo, and the dogs do a FIFO on Sunday.
