Redleg (4/10)



  1. My Foxtel is not working, despite paying full freight each month. Channel 7’s not giving me any love either. I simply cannot believe that, in the 21 years since Woey won it, I cannot watch the bloody thing. I’m about to smash some hardware.
  2. I’m not into censorship, but this thread ought be deleted - it’s disrespectful to a legend of the club.
  3. I love this club. It’s something that only a truly dedicated MFC supporter would understand - it seems young Eddie Goodwin is one of us.
  4. Phew. Sorry to be paranoid - but we’re actually playing for sheep stations here. And I want a sheep station.
  5. Anyone know who’s injured? It’s 6.54pm and I’m panicking (9 mins past the 6.45pm apparent report). As an aside, I’ll kill myself if we lose to Geelong. I just won’t be able to handle watching their smugness after the final siren.
  6. Apologies if this has already been covered, but how can we afford this bloke? I really don’t want to lose any of our required players over the next few years due to cap pressure, Collingwood style.
  7. We seem to better off playing in front of a large, partisan crowd in an away fixture rather than playing a home game before an empty MCG. It's as though we need the adrenalin of the crowd to play with enthusiasm and intent.
  8. We’re 12 wins, 2 losses - one loss of which we essentially won but for woeful umpiring (Crows), and the other of which we should’ve won but for woeful defending (Pies). We’re currently 8 points clear of second place, mid-way the season. Other than Tomlinson, we have no major injury concerns. The team looks harmonious and united, on and off field, and most, if not all, of our key players have committed to the club through mid to long term deals. It seems likely that we’ll finish in the top 4 and, unlike last year, the prelim and grand finals will be held at the MCG (our home ground). In short, I’ve not seen a Demons team in over 20 years of supporting them better placed than we are now. That said, I feel nervous. Almost uneasy. I’ve read reports that Choco Williams might be Collingwood’s senior coach next year, that Yze is in the mix to replace Teague at Carlton. Burgess will be at the Crows next year. Jackson is homesick and will eventually move back to the Weagles. I fear that May or Lever will get injured in round 20. While I’m probably boxing at shadows here (because we’re in an enviable and unusual position), I just can’t relax. It all feels like a house of cards is about to come crashing down. I can’t work out whether it’s paranoia borne out of years of following a team prone to failure, or whether my concerns are real. I’ve also got 500 bucks on us to win the flag at 17/1 (the entire proceeds of which go to my wife, to ensure she watches each game - with some level of enthusiasm). Anyway, it all feels a bit unreal - too good to be true territory. Anyway else feel this way? I’d also like someone with inside knowledge to confirm that I’m completely wrong in relation to the Choco Williams, Yze and Burgess concerns. Cheers, Ron.
  9. Burgess is next level - he is absolutely the reason behind our hard finishing fourth quarters. Players text him to find out the order in which they need to eat their vegetables during each meal - it’s ridiculous. We won’t be able to replace him (with someone remotely commensurate) if and when he leaves.
  10. People can learn from mistakes and life experiences. And then they become better. I reckon Buckley is firmly in this category.
  11. I was loving this season, until this. If Yze or Williams leave this club right now, I will kill myself.
  12. I like Buckley. He’s absolutely won me over, despite starting from a very low base. I’m worried about Monday though - this announcement will mean the Pies have the equivalent of 20 extra players. If Yze goes to the Pies, I will kill myself.
  13. If that’s the case, we’ve got this.
