  1. Is that Bernie Massie, left of Don Williams?
  2. I remember in the good-old, bad-old days we had Melbourne - Masters of the MCG and Melbourne Greatest Ever Exponents of Perfection Football displayed across the northern and southern stands in perpetuity. There was a third one l have forgotten.
  3. Amazing that umpire Marais Erasmus did not award a 50 metre penalty against Patrick Cummins for showing obvious dissent in last ball before lunch.
  4. He means ladder position/ home v interstate finals...
  5. Reminiscent of David Neitz's hit on a Hawthorn player, circa 2004.
  6. Like Stonehenge: https://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/carlton-and-essendon-mocked-for-pregame-mcg-tribute-that-only-reinforces-sad-reality/news-story/d7fec666cd46c359460cb864f6167865
  7. Their loss record aginst us in finals since pre-war is almost perfect.
  8. Watch Collingwood try to "ginger up" the new boy. I think he has a bit of the Neil Balmes about him...
  9. Buddy is moving around ATM like Talos from Jason and the Argonauts.. https://youtu.be/dD9qc44oMqU
  10. Oscar Baker Jeremy Howe Luke Jackson Sam Weidemann Jayden Hunt Sam Frost Toby Bedford Jessie Hogan Brayden Preuss Have l missed anyone? It is quite a list.
  11. They just have to be unpicked, like we were. They get overlappers sprinting hard from concealed rear formations as soon as they have a ball-winner. From that set-up it is guard to stop them. We need to counter their ploy with our own Oliver's army-style formation: https://youtu.be/gIej8Kg4Prs
  12. I was just waiting and waiting for someone to say this. It was a seriously selfish moment, papered over by the fact that we won the '21 premiership and the correct dribbling of the ball. If he had missed that goal it would have been a very bad look. Still, saying all this Fritta is a serious class act. Now, onwards to Kysiah and his penchant for spoiling JVR and Gawny's marking attempts.
  13. At one point Kozzie flew for a speccie in front of MG when he could have stayed down for the spoils. This has been a repeating pattern, with KP continually preferencing goal of the year/ mark of the year. We are going nowhere until Melbourne gets back to tem first.
  14. 8 wins in a row. I used to dream of 8 wins in a row against Carlton.
  15. Stay DOWN Kossie at 3 27. That is your captain you got in front of. TEAM FIRST.
  16. Why BBB wasn't put straight back into the Ones instead of having to do Re-Accreditation 101 equally so. He'd had a great start to the year... can surely bolster our (against top sides) pop-gun attack.
  17. The rumours - previously published here, and not denied by anyone at the club were that BBB had run over the coach's cat. Unfortunately this scenario is appearing more and more plausible each week.
  18. Not to mention the manufactured game day experience. No 'crowd' anymore.... just loud announcers and music controlling the messaging. Just watch Everton's last game in EPL, by way of comparison.
  19. That is not correct. There are friends, family, potentially carers, the whole sporting community, not to mention ambulance-chasing class-action lawyers as players in these tragic events. This is the prime reason the AFL is now bearing down big-time on head-high collisions and tackling. I dare say the current form of the game will be obsolete in twenty years time, when the full impact of head trauma is better understood and appreciated by sporting parents and the community in general.
  20. It only takes the flimsiest pretext to follow a team when you are a kid. Ie Getting taken to an International v seeing Ron Barassi on TV shows.
  21. Slightly off-topic, but well worth a mention! Overnight saw my team Everton def. Bournemouth 1-0 to narrowly avoid relegation from the English premier league. What then is the Everton / Melbourne connection? On May 16, 1964 my father took me to see Everton (then a top Div 1 team) play Australia. In spite of Everton smashing Australia 8-2 Everton, Everton became my team from then on. If my father wasn't so anti-Australian rules l might have been taken to junction oval (the previous Saturday) to see my first VFL game v Saints. Despite winning the flag that year Melbourne were soundly beaten by a rising St Kilda. Crowd comparisons were interesting: the Melbourne game drew 35,000 whilst the international at Olympic park drew 32,500. PS We walloped then in the August re-match, 8.7 to 5.7, but the crowd - at the MCG - was only 33,000.
  22. Hand of God is right. It's a Malcolm Blight on our game, and if you scan across KAYO over the weekend there are plenty of nonsensical calls and gift goals awarded by Hollywood umpiring. And what happened to push-in-the-back? It's a lucky dip which way the umpires call it. Won WCE a premiership couple of years ago and gave us a fright (Johanssen) in '21.
  23. Getting sucked into the contest: i know this is an asside, but Steven May (gloating about who was in the flag 18) and Ed Langdon's (Collingwood are a one trick team) hubristic behaviour last year tarnished our team-first ethic. And it's mighty hard getting back on that pedestal.
