  1. Jayden is the perfect example of 'break glass in case of emergency'.
  2. I'm comfortable with Hunt as the medical sub. Pretty close to a utility player, can play forward, mid or back. Provides dash and flexibility, and in reality can be brought on at any time if the situation calls for it.
  3. First game, Melbourne V Footscray R8 1994 MCG I don't think it was my first but it's the earliest memborable one. Memorable because it fell on my birthday and we got rolled by 3 points after leading at half time. Lyon kicked 5 goals, Shwarz 3. Bizarelly Illija Grgic kicked 6, seriously, WTF? It became a pattern for the Dees, ordinary players kicking bags of goals against us Best game, Melbourne v Hawthorn 2018 QF I was at the EF as well, which was great, but I hold the QF higher. Mostly because i found myself at Pilgrim bar after the game drinking pints with David Neitz, Brad Green, Wrecker Whelan, Paul Hopgood and Guy Rigoni Worst game Melbourne v Nth Melbourne 1998 Prelim Bizarrely in those days, we had to play a semi final against St Kilda despite beating Adelaide (comfortably) in a qualifying final in week 1. We'd go on to beat the Saints easily as well before running into a powerful North team who'd had the week off. Despite an admiral effort we'd lose by 5 goals. North would go on to lose the GF to Adelaide by plenty, who has magically turned their fortunes around after copping a belting from us at the G 3 weeks prior.
  4. Another incredibly memorable game that one. I was also in attendance. The momentum shifts were jus epic, I was convinced we couldn't get rolled at 3QT holding a 22 point lead after trailing 8 goals to 1 at QT. Probably Travis Johnstone's best ever game, 4 goals, largely from the wing. I can recall his gut running up and down the ground that night, he was completely spent late. Above that Neita jagged 5 and Robbo 4, almost inconcievable that we'd lose. But I'd never forget a little known forward for the Crows after that night. Bryan Beinke played 30 odd games for the Crows and never really impressed, but he kicked 2 goals from 4 touches that night, I reckon one from about 90 metres at a critical stage. A real vomit inducing moment if ever there was one. A long time mate of mine can still get a reaction out of me with that name, bloody Beinke!
  5. Unbelievable game. I was at that one too. Just reminded myself by looking at the stats. Incredibly on top of Farmers 8, Craig Scholl kicked 7 and Stephen Powell 4 https://finalsiren.com/MatchDetails.asp?GameID=1774&Code=4a26c16997776c50679be84b593da78e&Sort=Disposals Desc Footy will never be played that way again. Certainly not in a final. De-fence was the thing seperating the crowd from the playing field.
  6. Great comparison Col. T Mitch get's 40+ because he loves to get 40+ more than bringing his team mates into the game...and winning. Pretty much what stamped his papers at the Swans
  7. 94 and 98 were missed opportunities, but this team is definitely better. Better balanced, better organised and more committed to their roles
  8. Good call DeeZee but they are all a huge part of this. They set the standard that the younger players have had to exceed to win their spots.
  9. Pickett - took his chances Sparrow - here to stay McDonald - will be back
  10. He's small and crafty. Every sport has crafty athletes that aren't blessed with great height, super speed, sublime strength, etc. They use craft, nous, cunning and other things to get through. Think about the great knuckleball pitchers in baseball, or the 'goons' in ice hockey and Ric Flair in every one of his heel title runs. I love it!
  11. Hunt straight back in if ready. Open to Hibberd returning for the Cameron matchup but I'm not convinced that it would actually be a plus for us. Gut feel, no change unless necessary
  12. I am 40 I am patient Best win ever, for now... To be bettered, shortly Go Dees!
  13. Unlikely Tomlinson pushes Petty out, i think. But, Petty would certainly be a decent option to throw forward if need be and Tomlinson is fit and available
