  1. I’ve just learnt he received zero Brownlow votes. Either bin that [censored] award or rename the coaches votes to the Brownlow. It’s a joke.
  2. One of my all time favourites. I remember way back when he and Bennell were being written off, I could see something in Nev, and absolutely loved the career he carved after getting rookied. As CB said. Should’ve been AA. If they actually picked lock down defenders. That last quarter he played a against Carlton a few years back, winning one on ones all over the place then the n in the final seconds v Kade Simpson. The height of his powers. Surely he stays on in some capacity.
  3. Lucky it’s in Perth. There’s no way we could rebuild the G by Saturday.
  4. Carlton have nice top end talent that’s selling a dummy to people thinking it’s an easy fix. If Voss does Stephen Bradbury his way into the job, it’s too bad McRae took what Voss really needs, Leppa. Carlton lack any defensive system, combined with or because of a lack of 2 way runners. That is going to be no easy fix, you reckon Teague wasn’t aware of it the whole time? They're wasted money on flankers as others have pointed out, instead of hard workers to compliment what they have going for them. Cerra would be a handy addition to their (any) midfield, will he make a big difference there? I’m not convinced at all. The other problem Carlton have is the teams around them will get better. They finished on the same points as Hawthorn ffs, in a pure development year for the Hawks. Essendon, GWS will hold if not get better, Freo should improve, and they’ll drop points to teams falling down the ladder that are better than them, Richmond, West Coast, Geelong… Apart from Geelong it’s a pretty vibrant top 8 that may take a fair effort to crack into in the coming years.
  5. Doesn’t bother me. I learnt a long time ago to enjoy what I do have. Don’t worry about what I can’t have. But I genuinely feel for those of you that are feeling it and not getting to witness it in person. You’ve done the hard yards and deserve full enjoyment. Take heart that this team looks like it could give you a couple more chances to enjoy it in person.
  6. I need to sleep for 24 hours. I’m more nervous about this [censored] thing than I was about the prelim.
  7. My news is a 3 way trade Clark to Freo Cerra to Melbourne Ron Barrassi to Geelong
  8. Absolutely medals for anyone that played during the season. If the Melbourne Football Club wins a premiership then the players that represent the club won a premiership. “Cheapens” nothing. If anything it’ll add more pride to the players playing for their mates that didn’t make the 22 on the day. The players on the field on the day have that memory and archive footage for life. Jones, Jetta, Hunt/Jordon getting a medal won’t change that.
  9. Last week he learned us that the Cats beat you up inside, nothing surer, it’s their DNA, it’s what they do. Next minute, they don’t lay a glove on us, in a bruise free prelim. Him getting it wrong is my favourite media watch.
  10. Hope he goes to a rival club that needs good forward tackling pressure. I kid I kid. Good luck to him. Kinda serious.
  11. Caro wants us punching on outside kebab joints like Sydney Stackhat and Cassius Coleman-Jones.
  12. I’m high risk, pneumonia nearly killed me 9 years ago, if I get covid I’m cactus. A bad cold would probably do me in these days. My brother wants to come and watch it, but I used the above as an excuse to say no. I’d rather watch it alone, I’m going to be a nervous wreck, I don’t want to ruin his day by blaming him for every goal against by not following my idiotic superstitions. In a perfect world I’d be with my uncle and brother at the G. But it ain’t perfect so I’ll just enjoy what I can do. Of course if we lose, I invite anyone with covid to come and sneeze in my mouth.
  13. Would Goodwin be the first coach to win a flag coaching the entire season from the bench?
  14. Just needs to add a middle finger to it as a sign to shock the opposition.
  15. You know what else they all have in common? They’ve all developed or gotten better under the current successful regime. Weid, with a better pedigree than all of them has not improved at all. I’d give him a one year cheap contract if he wants it, simply because it’s a hard position to recruit for. And I mean cheap. If he doesn’t take it that’s fine. Luke Jackson will be clunking them up forward next year. And a red hot Gawn can also go down there whenever needed. We’re not as light on as most think. Gotta buy a couple of years to draft or poach Brown/Tomald replacements. Weid unfortunately isn’t it.
  16. Mitch Clark nominated Freo. Plus the other examples already given means it’s not always, at all.
  17. Songs to sum up my thoughts and feelings between now and then. Wednesday: Led Zeppelin - Bring it on Home Thursday: Beastie Boys - Do It Friday: Dillinger Escape Plan - When Good Dogs Do Bad Things Saturday: Deftones - One Weak Sunday: The Smiths - Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want Monday: Strapping Young Lad - Hope Tuesday: Leprous - I Lose Hope Wednesday: Opeth - Hope Leaves Thursday: Eminem - Believe Friday: Mastodon - Crusher Destroyer Sat Morning: Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
  18. Apologies if I’ve missed it, but why only Carlton? If it’s true that they’re all he’s interested in apart from us having a cheeky crack, why them? Why not, you know, a proper club? With a coach, CEO and any semblance of direction. I was baffled when Saad and Williams went there, wanting to go there now seems like absolute madness to me. Why aren’t Hawthorn or North an option? Why aren’t Richmond moving some deck chairs to replace old deck chairs like Cotchin and Edwards and the injury prone meatball? Have I missed something?
  19. Not enough love going round for Kozzie I feel. If that was Cyril on Friday night people and commentators would be losing their [censored]. 3 superb goals, doesn’t waste a possession and his first involvement was sublime. As Dazzle said, 40 goals in grade 2. 2nd year goals: Wiz 36 Betts 21 Cyril 21 Koz already goals ahead and a superior fitness base, the possibility of surpassing them all is realistic. And that’s crazy. Edit: I haven’t read the game day or post match threads yet, savouring them to fill in the days. Not enough love in the media or wider football world I meant.
  20. Lever’s already got a statue kicking Ratagalouie’s arm.
  21. For pure skill, Yze from the city end pocket, checkside v Freo? Almost impossible. Neitz ending McCabe. The Wizard of Waverley place. Neitz from about 65 on the members wing. Jeff White v Bulldogs. Jones v Geelong. Every Jakovich goal. Oliver on the boundary at Adelaide oval. Watts v Collingwood. Dom Sheed v Collingwood. Every Max Gawn goal.
  22. Will he still be eligible for the Rising Star after he’s won a Norm Smith?
  23. Do Geelong and Port play for bronze?
