  1. I've been thinking about the compressed fixture lately and wonder if it could possibly be the way back to a fair and even competition? It would require an absolute revolution in the way we do footy. For decades the AFL has prioritised profit over an even comp but this could be a way to even the comp and increase profits. If we scrapped the preseason comp and started the season on the first weekend in March and ended it on the last weekend in August there'd be 26 weeks of regular season. If you compress each round to 5 days you could fit 36 rounds into the 26 weeks. Every club could play e
  2. Don't bother with the minions, we need to organise a meeting with the umpires boss and one man rules committee. Hope Clarko can find time in his schedule.
  3. It's possible alright, I grew 8 inches between my 18th and 19th birthdays. I want from 5 foot 8 to 6 foot 4 and grew another inch before I was done. It had ruined my junior sport before i had the spurt. Had heaps of trouble with my knees and back from the age of about 14 and found a doctor when I was 17 who finally gave me a diagnosis after many failed attempts. He noted that I was 5 foot 6 or 7 at the time with size 13 feet and he just laughed and said you're going to be tall. After the spurt my knees and back were fine
  4. If I've set it up right you can make multiple selections but please limit your choices to 2 for obvious reasons. It's up to you how you base your vote, either your dream combination or who you think we'll pick. I voted Serong and Stephens but I've changed my mind several times and probably will again. I think Serong would be a walk up start as a small forward in our 22. According to reports he's strong overhead, good on the ground and loves a tackle and a goal. He could also provide a midfield rotation with time. Stevens provides the class and run we desperately need to develop to hopeful
  5. Cal Twomey's 2019 Phantom Form Guide: Post U18 Champs Cal Twomey's post champs form guide for anyone that's interested. Differs quite a bit from some of the bigfooty draft watchers. I believe Twomey bases his more from info he gets off recruiters so he's worth listening to.
  6. With Puckapunyal next door we're more army than navy
  7. Guilty as charged. Grew up there. Makes me a "Seymoron" as my sister in law called me without realising the joke.
  8. Four Seymour boys out of the 7 you mention there Hemingway. Seems you're a bit biased toward the southern end of the GV. Is there a lion lurking beneath the demon.
  9. Not sure to be honest DV8, got all my treatment at St Vincents Hospital and I mostly remember doctors talking to each other rather than me. Only time I've ever lived in an upstairs bedroom was that year dc, not the best year I've ever had.
  10. Every break is different. I broke my tibia in my early 20's, the break started just above the ankle and went on a sharp angle through the bone and finished just below the knee. The break was several inches long. I was in plaster up to my groin for 16 weeks, they took the plaster off and I still couldn't weight bear. I broke it again the following day while swimming. The second time they kept me in the plaster for 20 weeks. It was another 3 months before I could run again and even then it was only straight lines. Missed 2 years of footy with that injury.
  11. Bart Simpson's horse Duncan had the racing name furious d. It seemed fitting as I often get furious while watching the demons.
  12. Not that long ago our list was thin in the Bluey placings, we've come a long way.
  13. I think something like this could be the plan too robert, but it depends on Preuss' form for it to work. Max averaged about 85% game time last year, all of it in the most physically demanding position on the ground. If Preuss is up to it I could see him and Max splitting the ruck duties 50/50 and Max spending 30% of the game playing forward. It would considerably lessen the load on the big fella and prolong his career. Preuss could spend 25% of game time forward and that gives us rotations for Tmac and the Weed. It also gives us the flexibility to throw Tmac onto a wing for a spell and ma
