  1. If someone can get through the paywall then we won’t have to worry about the rest of this thread. How most hectic trade period in history will unfold
  2. Could explain why they call the site Zero Hanger.
  3. In the Eastern Football League Premier Division, the B & F was won by a former Melbourne rookie Max King. He tied with a player from Norwood (the Melbourne suburban club, not the one from the SANFL). The Division 2 medal was won outright by another former Melbourne AFL and Casey Demons VFL player, Tim 'Bull' Smith, now at South Belgrave.
  4. Weren’t we sponsored by Hancook Tyres once?
  5. If he’s coming to us, please change his surname to Strong. Or maybe Lloyd Freak.
  6. Strange as it may seem, there’s still one game left in the 2022 NAB AFL National U18 Championships and it’s the series decider between Vic Metro and Vic Country. The game will be played at Marvel Stadium on Thursday September 22 with the first bounce at 4:35pm. You can also watch on the Footy Channel if you have Foxtel.
  7. Fight looms for Cameron clone; speedster into top-two mix amid split picks chatter: Draft Watch
  8. Information on the 2022 NAB AFL Futures game for which Kynan Brown has been selected to play. 2022 NAB AFL Futures to feature on biggest stage
  9. Definitely, until his playing future is resolved. If he does end up going back to WA, we can expect that to be a game changer for Melbourne which will suddenly find itself with a couple of high draft picks. LJ was taken at pick 3 and the club has invested three years of learning into him so that whoever he plays for in the next ten years will have an elite player for 10 years. That’s at least two top 5 picks and a player. If he goes, then I would imagine that the Demons would try to gain Brodie Grundy as well as to pick up a young potential ruckman and one key position forward. Twomey’s form guide has some good prospects within a reasonable range that the club could aim to get. About a week ago I mentioned in the Jackson thread - “Two key players in that draft pick conundrum might be South Australians Isaac Keeler (197cm) and Harry Barnett (202cm) who are both capable of being developed as key forwards or ruckmen. Together with JVR, they would provide us with the next generation tall timber to replace Jackson and cover for the coming retirements of Ben Brown and Tom McDonald.”

  11. From the Mongrel Punt: MELBOURNE V BRISBANE – THE BIG QUESTIONS
  12. What are the rules in the case of an appeal? Don't they have to claim they have new evidence that wasn't already considered by the original tribunal?
  13. Good luck for a win on Saturday night and good weather on Sunday!!!
  14. Of course it would be Stall 64!!!
  15. Someone even suggesting that Lobb be used as part of a trade. Lobb would be 30 by the start of next season.
  16. At least the AFL will give them a bunk up with priority picks that they refused to give us when we were languishing at the bottom of the table and performing just as badly.
  17. Strange about AMW. He was omitted from the Casey side last week because he was being managed. Turns out he has a groin injury.
  18. What’s happened to Ratugolea? He was supposed to be the next big thing but he seems to have dropped right out of the picture.
  19. Mitch has done okay on the rare occasions he’s been given an opportunity. It’s true that he didn’t shine against Collingwood when the team was very much under the pump with multiple injuries but quite a few others also let us down. He came back to the VFL last week and was on fire kicking 6.6 so I think he deserves a chance. The question if he plays is which of the Browns plays the second ruck role and which plays key forward? Or do they have a bit of a merry go round with Weid and both Browns sharing the ruck and forward duties between them?
  20. Even when it’s not about us the HS tries to make it about us
  21. My two bob’s worth - I find it extraordinary that one newspaper is running with commentary in such a tacky way about a defamation case against a rival newspaper.
  22. I just watched the dying moments of the SA v VIc Country game and it was a real thriller with VC’s Harley Reid taking a couple of strong game-saving marks. And yes juniormac, I understood those comments.
  23. I read this interesting match report of our win against Brisbane on The Mongrel Punt
