  1. The noise at that point was incredible.
  2. I don't think we're fit enough.
  3. Cats were third at the end of h&a last year
  4. I've been to manuka a couple of times and it's a great little ground. It would be perfect if there were 7k diehard giants fans to give it some atmosphere. There's generally 500 Melbourne supporters, 500 giants and the rest are neutral meaning it's kind of a weird atmosphere. You feel like you're in the minority in actually caring about the game.
  5. I reckon this is true - we were the best in the comp by an absolute mile last year. Don't have to be as dominant as last year to still be the best team!
  6. I always run with "Melbourne invented football and built the MCG". The second claim is a longish bow but there's no space for reasonableness in footy arguments
  7. Hmmm interesting. So does that mean you can't say "politician x is hopeless" or "the umpire has no idea" or even "I hate Essendon"?
  8. Are they? What's the difference?
  9. Better than standing on the Gary Ablett terrace directly in line with the kick!
  10. What do you mean by this? That any criticism of anyone should be avoided?
  11. Scotty Thompson breaking his toe sunk us that year.
  12. That was 2016 second last round. Needed to win to have a mini-elimination final in the last round at Kardinia. Think Hogan missed a sitter or two. Got done by 100 pts the next week anyway. Ahhh the good old days!
  13. No doubt monistering them in the clearances will lead to numerous wasted entries that will build angst amongst the faithful, but surely we'll get it done.
  14. As repeated over and over, Melbourne has high fan to attendance and fan to membership ratios. We are not, and never have been, a fair weather supporter group. What you in fact asking for, is for us to be more fair weather - higher attendances in a post-flag year where we are in premiership contention again. And you can bet your bottom dollar we'd be accused of being fair weather had our attendances skyrocketed this year.
  15. Interesting. Thanks ftb. Also looks like a bit of rain in the arvo/evening which seems to deter some people.
  16. Ftb what's the crowd going to be this week? Or is it too early to tell?
  17. When you say the support was better, do you mean it was noisier?
  18. I spose you lose a lot of kids, oldies and country people with the night games. It's also amazing how much the weather seems to impact people going to the footy. And then there's covid - I had two mates that would've come on Sat but had covid. I actually reckon there might've been more than 60k dees at that elimination final. Which begs the question how many come out of the woodwork for finals.
  19. Well ftb you were right last week so I trust your judgement. Why does Sat night draw so poorly?
  20. Let's give howey and his mates what they deserve in September.
