  1. Watched that with my Carlton supporting girlfriend. Enjoyed that all round - happy about the good mood in the house and happy that my suspicion that Essendon are pretenders is confirmed. Everyone wins.

    Good on Norf. I remember those days when a H&A win was rare and felt like winning a GF.

    Ready to hate them again as needed, but right now I don’t. Loved that for them. That felt satisfying to me like a Dees win.

    Doesn’t mean you have to keep saying it over and over and over again, especially in the Non-MFC thread. We get it, we all know what happened. You reminding us at any and every opportunity isn’t gonna change what happened so why do it?

    Some people enjoy being miserable. How you deal with disappointment is a choice - I don’t know why some people choose self-flagellation over and over.

  4. Why can’t good medium-small defenders just stay that way?
     

    There is always, always need for competitive, skilled defenders in the back 50. I don’t understand the fixation with wanting to turn them in to midfielders all the time.

    Hopefully the Cats have a few mediocre years to bring Chris Scott back to the pack a little.

    Every year since about 2020 was meant to be the year Geelong finally went off the cliff. I thought we might have punted them off it in 2021 but nope. The buggers seem to just be able to get up again, over and over.

    From now on I’m just going to assume they’ll be a contender again until I see with my own eyes that they’re not.

  6. This mirrors every other game against poo teams like Richmond and Hawthorn. One half of both sides making our eyes bleed, before we cruise away in the second half and win by plenty. Even the West Coast game wasn’t that different except we forgot the skipping away bit.

    Love the Langdon to half forward move. He killed it. Huge vote of confidence in Windsor to play the opposite wing to Hunter.

    I will legit cry the day Max pulls the pin.

    He would suit a different club . Horks or Norf perhaps. I think we've got enough youth coming through and enough middle stage talent to keep drafting kids. Our recruiting has been top notch.

    There will be some free agents coming  up that suit us but our list is pretty healthy (in terms of age spread) .

    Max will be hard to replace for so many reasons .We will need a ruckman at his peak in about 2 years that can take over until Kalani White settles into the role. 27-29 year old maybe.It's a shame Manbag/Bun din't work out but he'll love Sydney.

    Could eaily be Tmacs testimonial year and what a great servant he has been for so long and through so many dark years.

     

    Why would Dusty leave Richmond for Norf or Hawf? I think if he was going to play for a non-contender he’d just stay where he’s comfortable.

    I didn’t see an “arm-wrestle” first quarter at all. I saw us getting completely owned by a side who chose to turn up to the game on time. 

    Do you think the second quarter (score wise basically even) was a marked improvement in “effort”? 

    I don’t. The game looked basically the same to me, we just found ways to score.

    Where was that urgency from the start?

    Sounds stupid given a 0.0 to 5.0 first quarter but I really didn’t feel like the score reflected the effort. It was our usual arm wrestle first quarter but the score somehow didn’t reflect.

    This game was a freak anomaly for mine. I write it off as a disappointing loss that we should have won and move on.

  10. My perspective after last week and this is: what we do against lowly teams don’t matter. Against Richmond, or Hawthorn, or whoever else, as long as we get the 4 points, nothing else matters.

    These are the games that matter. Beating the other top teams matter. We’re a contender in 2024 and we ARE good enough to win it. 

    Love these Dees.

    Potential to cause injury 😂 

    Is that anything like jumping with your knees into someone? I wonder 💭 

    Nobody is getting injured from a glancing blow which was all this was - ridiculous imo 

    Presumably any offence that is punishable by suspension has the potential to cause injury, that’s why it warrants such a heavy penalty.

  12. Hunter is available according to the injury report. I haven’t been following his injury- is he in the frame or will he need a Casey run? He is better than both Billings and Woey 2.0 if he’s fit.

    If not, it’s just May for Hore for me. Woey sub.

    Haven’t been on for ages because I couldn’t deal with the off field drama but I came in response to this news. I’m heartbroken for Gus but absolutely love this photo and it sums up my memory of him for me. Premiership hero and all time great in my mind and my heart. Love you Gus.

    There is a few players doing well that we've lost that wouldn't get a game with us, that are going well else-where.

    Hunt, Bedford, McInerney, Weideman,....one or two others, that I can't think of.

    It shows how deep our list has been in recent years.

    It’s a bit of a stretch to describe Oscar McInerney as a player we lost; he was never Melbourne listed and he spent most of his time at Casey kicking around in the twos.

  15. There’s no way any ruckman with designs on being first ruck - and has the capability - is coming to us now after how the Grundy thing has played out. If that was me I’d be saying Brodie effing Grundy couldn’t get a game, what hope have I got?

    We need to develop some young rucks. We can start thinking of high profile rucks again when Max is closer or at the end.

    trying out for the Comedy Festival there Nash.... not sure if serious.    I would have thought anexchange of role/abilities more fitting.  No ??

    Serious but with about 3 seconds of thought given to it bub. TMac is more likely, in any case I think a role shuffle is inevitable with a hybrid going out and the best remaining options being talls.
