  1. Easy fix. We target Maynard 🤷‍♂️
  2. Sad news, like Hannibal Inc, I also had contact with Mark when he was distributing the Robbie Flower DVD years ago. We both worked in Bayswater at the time & being a fellow Demonlander he was more than happy to deliver the copy to me. RIP MarkC
  3. I don’t know Mick Green @ all however I did have a brief random 3 minute meeting with him in Woolworths in Boronia about 12 months ago. From memory Brownlow Medal night 2018. We were both grabbing Munchies before the count & he struck up a chat about the Footy. He was quick to tell me who he was & we chatted about the Dee’s & The Giants. He came across as a super proud Dad & was very excited about Toby’s career. I hadn’t really thought about it much again until the last few days.
  4. I watched the replay on Sunday & thought the exact same thing. Even when Jones dropped his shoulder into him after the headbutt he was wiping his mouth of non existent blood as there was no contact anywhere near his mouth. It was purely for the umpires benefit. He can play but he is a deadset [censored] after that 4 quarter acting display.
  5. Nick Blakey - Emerging Superstar. Played a sensational game tonight. How do we get him to The Dee’s?
  6. I’m with you Ding. Ive got 4 years on you & @ 55 I am starting to wonder if I will ever see that elusive premiership After being down for so long & then finally getting that taste again in 2018 has made 2019 to date agony. Still I have seen us live win 2 Preliminary Finals & know how that felt. I just hope & prey that eventually we all get to experience that one extra week & the ultimate glory. A changed game plan & some smart recruiting & I honestly think we can launch hard again in 2020. You are not alone mate
  7. Nice trip down memory lane Farmer. However It’s now 2019 some 63 years later, the skill levels are far superior & we as a club kick for goal like the little league. It’s completely unacceptable & has put us under enormous pressure. We should of beaten West Coast & Adelaide however due to basic kicking errors we didn’t. Weideman didn’t kick that simple goal from 20 metres out directly in front & we as long suffering supporters & The MFC are now in an even bigger world of pain. Strangely I have seen enough this season in a couple of games to suggest we can &
  8. 25 Metres out directly in front. Its not possible to miss that last kick. Tim Smith’s Miss was just as bad. As for Garlett’s dropped mark in the pocket. Just can’t comprehend how such basic skill errors are possible? The Demons Complete & total embarrassment in 2019......
  9. The injuries were always going to come. GWS can physically do anything they want & we don’t respond. Toby Green knee’s with intent to hurt on MacDonald, then our skipper cops a full on poor disguised punch in the face & just nothing. softest team in the Comp by a fair margin.
  10. Not switched on from the first bounce & yet again No name kids wearing weird Orange jumpers are pushing us around and bullying us like babies. Nothing short of a line in the sand response in the 3rd quarter will do. Screw the fallout & consequences our existence is depending on this response.
  11. 100% Agree with this take RN. That should of been a non negotiable moment with 17 blokes letting Vardy know we are not coping that [censored] as a club. Every chance we would of then gone on & changed the result. Instead the WC arrogance machine just rolled on to a victory they didn’t deserve. I miss Rod Grinter 😡
  12. The game has changed rapidly & we haven’t adjusted. Stubborn coaching is not giving us a chance. Forget 2019. Its Over.
  13. This is Round one all over again. Turning the Ball over. Dominating inside 50’s & being bullied & pushed around by skinny kids. Absolute Joke.
  14. Cold hard fact is it’s been a terrible, disappointing start. We need to respond quickly before the doubts set in. Port Bullied us big time in round one & we seem rattled. Time to harden up & attack 2019 hard. We have the cattle, time to stand up on game day. No excuses.
