  1. I think Alves had a falling out with Skilton, someone can correct me on that.
  2. Well I'm pleased to hear that. Alves was my hero 'in the day'.
  3. Have seen no reportage of these two since GF. Crackers always talked the Dees down in favour of his beloved North. Stan never really showed the love of the red and blue either, after spending most of his career as a champion in a losing side. Stan's first three games in 1965 had been in the Dees' (very briefly) undefeated premiership team.
  4. We absolutely couldn't handle WCE switching the ball across the ground. They had perfected a keepings off game and we couldn't touch the ball that day.
  5. Will be v interesting to watch 'young turks' Petty and Tomlinson competing for spots with Lever and May over next couple of years.
  6. Clayton Oliver jumper bid now = $6,350!
  7. Three great 'recent' wins against the Dogs. '87 last round to get us into the finals, '94 final where Gazza kicked 10 and last night.
  8. Not sure if anyone has posted this: https://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/afl-great-greg-parke-dead-in-grand-final-tragedy/news-story/b1ba85ae8b0d369039b5e97bb431f35f
  9. Do you have any special friends, family who did not make it to this day? I went to the footy with Ray from Springvale Under 12s onwards for years. We re- connected many years later when Ray developed an illness and sadly passed away. He was a demon FANATIC, and is survived by his two sons and daughter. Go RAY, Go DEES!
  10. In support of your argument would probably be all the Dees who retired early or went to other clubs. Bromell, Barassi, Roet, Mithen, Bob Johnson, Hassa Mann off the top of my head.
  11. Recruiting zones were changed which doomed the dees. Whoever was coach didn't matter.
  12. The AFL should consider scheduling a bye before counting Round 23 votes.
  13. For me it means re-claiming part of my childhood. It would also mean MFC returning to its rightful place as a leading club. Success breeds success, and a win may usher in years of enjoying the Dees as a power club.
  14. Tomorrow 3.00pm ABC radio will be doing a replay of the '64 Grand final.
  15. There was a message to members from Gary Pert yesterday so scroll down where info is given about using your barcode and purchasing tickets.
  16. I think you can buy ONE ticket per membership, multiple tickets (up to 8) with multiple barcodes. That's what I thought Pert's letter meant.
  17. He has the Barassi-esque will to power, I have no doubt.
  18. Hawkins also missed a gimme. It happens.
  19. Worst game/memory was our loss to Hawks in the '87 prelim, a game we're we choked. Bailey Yeats Jackson Eisghold from memory missed gettable shots. Most amazing win/s have to be v North and v South in the '87 finals with an amazing pro-melbourne crowd on each occasion. Special mention v Geelong last round and the Gawn goal.
