  1. Depends who is given the FF role. Previously Weideman has been anointed as the Casey spearhead.
  2. Keep the politics off here. Dixon and Barassi were Tories, isn't that enough!
  3. After re-watching the '87 elimination final last night I'd also bring in Todd, but as a medical sub.
  4. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/four-points-the-rise-of-the-bombers- 9th on the ladder and all. Was a great win but but basically an Essendon Bombers advertorial.
  5. In that case what about the AFL.com.au. They regulate the competition then deploy their website to speculate on what lower-team lists and players can be raided by the power clubs. All in a day's work.
  6. Access to a (potential) GF ticket must be the incentive to boost membership.
  7. This was a mini-me version of our 2019 unravelling. Make changes, don't panic, we are still a good team.
  8. A courageous and fair decision. Weidmann has more versatility and has earned another chance. Gawny keep out of his way this time!
  9. So he gets in the AA, or doesn't. Exactly who does the AA team play anyway, and would Simon Ggoodwin and Choco release him to play a midweek fixture v New Zealand anyway.
  10. It wouldn't have been fed to the media unless he was going to play.
  11. Don't let it bother you. Any way to dampen expectations is more than welcome, IMO. BT is tongue in cheek. Let the results speak for themselves.
  12. Keep it up, BT he's lowering expectations beautifully which is exactly what the mighty Dees need at this stage of the race. Same as the guy on Fox who said "We've done nothing yet"
  13. Beware the three-headed monster, a la Dillon, Parke, Collcott. Apologies in advance for historically inaccurate allusion. Allusion 2.0: Lyon, Bennett, Jakovich.
  14. Also, milking a free by gripping the player's hand so he can't get rid of it. Sometimes dangerous and not in the spirit of the code. What year did this abysmal practice start?
  15. Majak will be there, mark it. His journey is inspirational and his time will come during the season. Sam's time is now, he is cherry ripe and will seize the the chance to show his wares.
  16. Melbourne went 0-3 in the last home and homes in '57 and thence completed the threepeat. The last cupplar games are a sideshow if wins have been banked and players managed for the finals denouement.
  17. On ticketek there is only a pay option
  18. This is an 'away' game? ie have to purchase tickets for general membership?
  19. I just checked.... we lost our last three in '57 before going on to smash essendon to complete threepeat. in '64 we got smashed by the scraggers (we had players out) and then beat collingwood x 2 to win the flag. late games interstate this year won't help us. hopefully we will have stored our acorns away by then.

  21. I did that also first time on Ticketeck... it is a bit deceptive .... First purchase an MFC membership then have the ticketeck luxury of 'upgrading' and spending another pile of money on a more luxurious plastic seat.
  22. The curse definitely cost us a flag when we were good enough ie 1987-1991 and perhaps 1998. Geelong and The Saints also missed flags they should have won. None as much as Collingwood though.
  23. Carlton will be right on the money.
