Rookie (1/10)



  1. I don’t mind this tonight, sure, you can pick holes in our forward delivery, our kicking at goal, and the fact that the umpiring cooked us. But to be within a kick with 10 minutes left. And then We were on the wrong end for about 5 minutes. So we lost. This should give us something to work on leading into finals. Win 3/4 on the way home and we are guaranteed top 4. We can do that, based on tonight’s effort. All these people saying we’re no good, we’re still good team. Capable of winning a flag… let’s see how we go…
  2. Sitting in the stand today, you could tell in the first couple of minutes that we were off. Unsure around the ball and not running hard enough to cut off their outlet kicks.. We were lucky to only be 4 goals down at half time. The extra handball we kept giving was poor, and mixing it up in the midfield didn't stop us getting flogged in the middle. After half time, our running improved and our skills improved. North did drop off though, and we can't play like that against top 8 teams.. Kozzie live is amazing, and Fritta with his tail up is almost as good. I never watch us live on TV, and today wasn't enjoyable up until the last 5 minutes when I was confident we weren't going to throw it away.. nice to win at Bellerive, sick of losing there by under a kick..
  3. All this talk of "tough season" and "odds were against us" is just rubbish, every club has had it rough at some point this year, if not all year. We were flogged last night, and should've lost by more, in a game that dictated if we played finals or not. We shouldn't be happy with where we are on the ladder, and a coach that says, or even intimates that, should be sacked. Goodwin's comment after the game reflects that his aspirations are less than the supporters, or where the clubs should be. He seems happy that after setting the bar extremely low in 2019, that a few more wins translates to some level of contentment. Supporters can't be happy with that, and should rightfully be asking the club to explain how this season can be categorised as anything else but another dismal failure.
  4. For all the hand wringing and finger pointing, I'm just a bit flat. We were beaten by a better team today, one that plays a lot like us. Regroup for the saints. We need to win that game... we could afford to drop two on the run home. We've just dropped one.
  5. I hate the cats. But you play whats in front of you, we were poor in the first quarter especially, but to get within a kick, after 1 game in 3 months. I thought there was a bit to take out of it, yeah the season is shorter, but there is still a long way to go..
  6. I hope the pies do make it. Just so we can beat them in the first week of finals..
  7. Can't believe I got up at 5am to watch that tripe. Probably a good thing I'm in the States, where nobody cares about "footee". Although I will probably see a Richmond guernsey today.. I wish we showed more fight than that last quarter. That was horrible. The next 4 weeks will decide our fate for 2018. We need to (and should) win all four, but if we can't kick goals we can't win games. I think if we end up 4 and 5, we are toast. Our run home is tough. That said, we are one win behind where I thought we would be after 5 games.. But the way we've lost the last two can't be tolerated, and shouldn't be tolerated by supporters who have been through a lot of carp in the last decade..
  8. If you look up "much maligned" in the dictionary you see a picture of this guy. My two cents worth is I hope he stays, but will also be happy to see him leave and kick 30 odd as a 3rd tall/high half forward for any once else (probably except for the filth and the drug cheats), because I think that will be best for Jack, most of us hope/dream he can turn around another wasted season (by most measures) where is talent remains unfulfilled and next year he will take a game by the scruff of the neck and dominate like we've always hoped he would. But there are others that think that he's had plenty of chances, and burnt plenty of bridges. The reason why Jack is so polarising is because he epitomises MFC since he was drafted, not quite there, living off hope and potential, dreaming the best is yet to come. This period has also caused other fans to be bitter about mistakes made, draft picks missed and gameplans exposed. Jack has been the whipping boy for them as much as he has been the beacon of hope for others. I don't know what the right thing to do is, but I hope whatever happens, there isn't another thread like this next year, equally glass half empty, as it is glass half full.
  9. That hurt. Not a wasted season. But expectations were set high following great wins. Only to be completely shattered by shocking losses. Not much to do now but bemoan missed opportunities. I will say, nothing from the club at all. Nothing on twitter. What's with that? Surely they understand the pain we are all going through? Even a small acknowledgment of the season and a "thanks for your support" is warranted, surely?
  10. I know I'm late to the party, and I don't normally come on here and vent, but my God, that was probably the hardest loss I've had to get through for quite some time. I'll be hoping Eddie Betts kicks 10 tomorrow, and we know our fate by 3/4 time. A bigger part of me is pretty sure that the Weagles will show up and smash them, condemning us to the finish the season in Richmond, nobodies friend. Tonight I wish we were really [censored] again, winning two games a season, at least we were consistent, as opposed to this season, the theme song for this year should be Tuckers Daughter. Go Dees
  11. I love those ladder predictors, the teams up the top now always seem to go through the rest of the season undefeated and the teams on the bottom only manage one more win at home. That said, I had us in the top two as well, but the way this season has gone so far you might as well flip a coin 81 times...
  12. Wow. I hate the shitfish more than most. But a poor 3rd quarter is the reason we are going to be percentage out of the eight at the end of the round. For mine, the next 3 weeks will tell us if we are going to play finals. The tiges, the bummers and the dawks. Win those 3 and we will play finals. Win 2, and its 50-50. We've got a young list that's been talked up in in the JLT to fill space and time. I'm angry because i thought we should've won today. Same as last week. Calling for sacking this bloke and dropping that bloke is rubbish. It's done. Move on. Go Dees.
  13. Over 100 pages might indicate that some on here drink their own bathwater just a little. I think Howe for Kennedy and 2nd Round is fair, and sadly Jimmy for a third rounder is also fair. Toumpas never really stood up when he had the opportunity this year, particularly after his "breakout game" against the saints. If we were on the other side of this we would probably argue that pick 50 is too much to give. Howe plays inconsistent, yet highlight reel football and will no doubt be in the top 3 for MOTY again next year, and we will miss him when that hppens. Kennedy will bring more consistent football and hopefully will have a 30 goal season playing off half forward, and I think will exceed Howe's match output before we play the filth on QBD. This isn't the worlds best deal, but its not the worst either, we definitely didn't get poled, boned, skewered or bent over. Negotiating isn't just sitting in a room thumping your fist and shouting at the other bloke until he gives you want just to shut you up. I think we did the best with what we had, and it would seem we aren't done with trade week yet.
  14. good to see some people have written off the season after 60 minutes of football. calm the fark down. seriously.. its the whizz fizz cup in the cauldron that is North Ballarat.. I'm happy with a win, nobody getting hurt, there were some good performances out there today, and there are also a few things to work on.. you doomsayers better not watch us against the Essendon thirds next week, if we don't win by 15 goals, you'll be cutting up your membership cards!!
  15. Heard Roosy more than once talk about that we need a mature player. "Supporters want to see improvement now". Flys in the face of the notion of taking two picks to the draft. He's been banging on for ages about getting pick 3, he will trade it out for something... Probably keep pick 2???
