Mighty Demon (3/10)



  1. Thanks for this and your other reports. Us o/s supporters need all the info we can get. I have now forgotten about Lyon and won't mention him again. Cheers and keep up your excellent work.
  2. That is what I said. Plus look at the bio of the forward coach and that will explain 2.12 and1.8
  3. No they haven't, they are the same wheels. All the other clubs have improved and we have been treading water. We were the first to have a women's team and should be the team to beat. Probably won't make the finals. Why? What is the one constant re MFCW that has been with the team since the start of AFLW? Clue; read the bio's of our coaching staff.
  4. The women's league has made giant steps forward in it's short existence and it concerns me that the MFC are not aware of the fact we are falling behind and I put this down to our coaching staff. Coaches learn from their previous coaches and in the early stages of the competition, coaches from 2nd and 3rd tier sufficed but now the game needs people of a higher calibre. Not one of our coaches has experience at a high level of football; for example look at the bio of our development coach "The brother of senior coach Mick, John Stinear works as a Development Coach with Melbourne's forwards as well as a match-day runner. Stinear has been involved with the club since the inaugural 2017 AFLW season and has a playing background at Southern Football League side, St Kilda City, where he was part of back-to-back Premiership sides in 2009 and 2010." and you wonder why we can't kick goals. The team list is probably the best in the competition and deserves better coaching; they need to be taught how to handball properly; there is only a handful of girls that can use handball effectively clear congestion with kicks off the ground stop the opposition getting the ball away when tackled etc So for the rest of the year i suggest they get Mark Williams to help out once a week. It couldn't hurt but it might iron out some problems. Most of the other clubs have better game plans than us but inferior lists; that is because they are new to the competition but give them time and they will be better than us. As one of the formation clubs we need to advance instead of stagnating. We won't win a flag the way things are now. Ever.
  5. This is a game that will test our coach. I am still not convinced that he can bring a flag home. I thought he was outcoached in the 2nd half last week. I hope that I am wrong and it is a case of tv watching v seeing live. But every thing is going well and I hope it continues.
  6. I believe the AFL are licencing universities to add a course, Law-AFL- rules and laws, to their existing curriculum. Players are invited to attend for a fee 50% of which will be on forwarded to the AFL.
  7. Yes but he proved not up to it. We lost but we won. I don't remember his name; that's how good he was.
  8. Better include Freo in that list. Unbeaten in their last 10 games inc todays bath of Adelaide. They are a huge threat.
  9. The way women's football is played is different to the men's game. They are not as strong nor as quick. Oh what is the use. The fact is that now there is more kicking off the ground with all teams in recent games than before indicates that this is the coaches instruction. I think they know better than you and me. And it is working.
  10. skills 32 team runamuk. I think barassi league Thanks for doing this again.
  11. Did you read my first post? Basically I said that if some one is on your hammer and you lack the skills to pick up and handball in the one motion then a kick off the ground is the best option. They did it and it worked. So what is your problem.
  12. Paxman and others read Demonland apparently. I noticed a fair bit of kicking the ball off the ground as suggested in the v Suns thread.
