  1. Mark Williams burnt the new recruits birth certificates?!?! (listen right to the end) He certainly is a different unit.
  2. Trac Oliver May Langdon Gawn Salem and Viney close.
  3. I think our list is actually ok. It's all above the shoulders for mine. When we play poorly, it seems to me to be the effort, composure and concentration of our best 10 or 15 players (the ones who are automatic selections if fit) that cause it, not the ability of the players who were in and out of the team all year. Get the players heads right, and I think we'll improve.
  4. I can never understand the blaming of our fringe players after a calamity like last night. Very few players at all would get a pass mark for that performance, but I feel way more let down by the 10 or so players that take home 50% of our salary cap than by the guys that we all know are 18-30th on the list. Weideman. Melksham. Salem. Lever. Fritsch. Brayshaw. Viney. PETRACCA!!! Oliver. They were all woeful. If our best players turn it up like they did last night, what hope do players like OMac, Spargo and Smith have of changing things?

    I’ve seen Melbourne do it also. Not sure how it’s arranged. Maybe the hone team get dibs or something. Quite common to see though.
  6. So after a game where we get smashed around stoppages, smashed on the spread, smashed in transition, and smashed in skills, let's blame a guy who's 6'4. Makes sense.

    The umpire calling advantage on AVB when clearly he didn't want it was appalling umpiring. Melksham's movement on the mark was an obvious 50m as there has been all year. My family and I could not believe what we were seeing. Incredibly dumb.
  8. I’m pointing my finger at everyone under 6’2. Skills, setups, defending, missed tackles. Beaten comprehensively by an mid-table at best team.
  9. I disagree that TMac (or whoever our number 2 big forward is) should be measured on how many goals he kicks. In our team, the 2nd tall forwards job is be too dangerous to allow the 2nd defender leave him to double team Weeds, to not ever be outmarked and to do some ruck work. Any goals is a bonus.
  10. North Melbourne currently have 17 players out injured. 35-17=18.... I hope the AFL realise that would be a bad decision BEFORE they make it, not afterwards which is the norm.
  11. I could be on my own here, but surely using the Port game as evidence that LJ, Weeds and TMac can't work is not super clever. The whole team played terribly that night and the magnitude and manner of the lose simply cannot be attributed to playing 3 talls in any possible way.
  12. I noticed that also. Looked lower back related maybe? Just didn't move smootly. Played ok though.
  13. Interesting to hear the commentators go on and on about AVB’s push and how it needs to be stamped out of the game, but when the little guy from Adelaide charges and bumps May well after the ball goes out of bounds they celebrate it. Kinda sums up the commentary all night really. I think they wanted blood and were very disappointed Melbourne won.
  14. As soon as Covid starting affecting the season, my hopes for this season greatly decreased. We are not a resilient club. There is something wrong with the culture in there somewhere and it’s been that way for a long time. An abnormal season like this was never going to suit us.
