Redleg (4/10)



  1. I would assume that was close to the same differential last week with his decisions for & against. He was brutal on us.
  2. Under the Radar is exactly where we need to be leading into September. Then we Launch 🚀
  3. This is guy has been super solid & winning multiple one on ones on debut. The kid can seriously play ….
  4. We got on a late roll in 1987. We were solid for the last 2 months that season but only just stumbled into the 8.... 2021 is completely different , we are ruthless & afraid of No team. Definitely got the Cats 2007 feel about it.
  5. Derm is still living off his 5 time premiership player days from 30 years ago & still sees the Dee’s as the easy beats of the competition in his mind & always will until we achieve the ultimate success. Like BT he’s stuck in a time warp. He couldn’t of been anymore dismissive of Melbourne’s season to date & refuses to accept we are a genuine chance in 2021. He’s just another smug media personality trying to remain relevant. We just need to keep the Lid on, remain humble & just keep turning up each week with the same relentless pressure & focus. The Dermie’s of the world have had there moment, ours is just around the corner....
  6. Very tough read. I remember those 9 games in 91. He was explosive, kicked a couple of bags then did his knee & we never saw him again. Hope he finds peace @ some point.
  7. Such a fine line between Future Superstar & Dud. He got a few touches in the first 3 quarters. Then had a great breakout leading & marking final quarter but couldn’t finish his outstanding work. Had he kicked 3-4 like he should have we would all be having a different conversation. I reckon he will tear the competition apart sooner rather than later.
  8. Probably start Bertram on the ground ahead of Bennell & maybe Miller ahead of Bate. Apart from that looks good 👍
  9. Don’t look back in Anger 🎶 🎵
  10. No dispute on that one. my point was 2018 has not been our only decent year in the last 50 years 🤷‍♂️
  11. Loges 20 odd years not 50 You disrespect the line ups we had from 87-94. Unlucky not to pinch a flag in that era. 98 & 2000 also had decent competitive sides on the park. Just ran into a once in a lifetime Bombers unit. Things might just turn around quickly when we least expect it. 🙏
  12. Easy fix. We target Maynard 🤷‍♂️
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
