  1. I was in school around the time symonds was being called a monkey from the stands, i'd never been called a monkey or called someone a monkey as a rascial slur before that, as i said, i was young and maybe it just hadnt happened yet. I dont like wayne carey either, i havent met him, what will you label me for that? I hope i dont upset my sisters young girls next time i see them, blurting out rascial slurs and booing at them. Taking them up to darwin where they're dads from, when my sister was sick and couldnt go, experiencing that with them and a welcoming family was really tuff se
  2. I never boo'd goodes. But i didnt like the way i thought he went about it. What he tried to do i like, the way he came across i didnt. I saw his press conference the day after he pointed out the girl for the first time in the doco, while ignorance is no excuse i only knew it was racist because of the andrew symonds vs indian fans situation, she was a bit young to remember that. He handled that quite poorly, but the next day quite well and put supporting the girl above any other issue, never saw that at tge time and it wasnt discussed around the water cooler. The invasion day line was also
  3. Goes back further than that, back when we hired misson from sydney i think. Mitch Clarke, jack trengove
  4. I thought the rule was you must use a first round pick? The afl can also approve trades.
  5. If we get pick one why not trade it for 2 early picks? Unless the top 3 are absolute standouts and what we need(not another one string contested onballer) Its worked for us before, tyson made us instantly better, salems coming on and hunts a bonus. We now have Preuss through tyson now too. While id love kelly, we were apparently after billings, out of the first 9, kelly and bont were the only one that would make you think about it in hindsight. 1. Tom Boyd 2. Josh Kelly 3. Jack Billings 4. Bont 5. Kk 6. Matt Scharenberg 7. James Aish 8. Luke Mcdona
  6. Watching kk earlier in the year and his last half for casey against collingwood he needs to work on fitness. Leave him at casey, work his guts out, full pre season and hit the new season giving him the best chance to play good footy.
  7. Interesting watching casey with more afl players available this week had much more space in the fwd50 and a clear change in plan and execution. Hopefully its the start of change.
  8. Id like to know if viney is playing with the foot injury still. If he is, we are failing jack and learnt nothing from the past 8 years of ruining careers. If he can rest and return to full fitness he was showing he was next in line after jones, i think he was probably given co captaincy a year earlier than most thought as jones was still in our top 3 but couldnt question that jack deserved it. If he is going to be hampered long term, i would hope jack would step aside to focus on his game without the added pressure of playing because hes captain.
  9. Is my hungover brain correct in remembering that it was turf toe? i recall fremantle dealing with aaron sandilands when he had the same issue. Dont hold me to this but i think he too tried to play through, then rested came back and flared up again and i think he was out for a large period of time. Freo put one of the top ruckman in the afl out for the betterment of sandilands and fremantles long term prospects. modified his training and sandilands came back and was able to play at a high level. When we hired misson most people were excited, he was a vast improvement from the i dont feel l
  10. Spargo is neither the problem or the scape goat, at this stage hes just a nothing. I can see the good things he does, neat kicks that often end up being scoring chains, presents and gets to where he should be and thats it. When he gets to where the ball is he is to often beaten. Doesnt kick enough goals and defenders dont worry about him. I read earlier someone state that hes brendon McCartny's pet project this year. Do track, brayshaw, oliver and our other young guys with big potential stroke his ego as much as if he developes these type. I know he worked close with harmes, but why does
  11. Sorry if i mixed up your comment about the captaincy and riding on todds coattails with someone else. We traded lever to play kpb, there were many quotes around the start of last year from mfc officials. Was he kpb? No, but was always expected to grow into that role. Im stating that todd removed himself from the drafting process of jack and the gws gc issues at the time of his drafting. Im stating that jack being made co captain had nothing to do with todd being employed by the mfc. Im stating that the coaching staff made the decision on the form and leadership that jack had shown, a
  12. While i disagree with oliver, may and dropping viney completely, its amazing how quick i forgot about nev in these discussions. He has been what mfc has lacked since junior.(no offence to jones but his game was very centered on jones's game for a few years) If gawn continues his form and style of play/leadership he qualifies in this catergory too, but has dropped his bundle a couple of games. Players that just produce what is expected of them each and every contest. Too many times we've thrown players into leadership roles after one or 2 good years only to see them lose form. We've tried
  13. Absolutely. Did i state anywhere that we shouldnt review everything? I even stated about his current form and injury history. I called you out on the fabricated tale of viney being named co captain because his father is employed by this club. He had nothing to do with this. His father who is involved in drafting and removed himself from decisions involving his son, and even his sons friend to a certain point. You believe what you like but facts speak for themselves. Lever was traded in for a position as kpb. As evidenced by 2018 early season games where he was exposed one on one
  14. Wow an out of form injury returning contested mid worth less than kpp. Mind blowing stuff. One Isolated comment? Similar comments were being made by media personal, and afl fans alike. I never quoted it as an general opinion, it may have not been yours and i would not try to say it was, but many people were acknowledging his rise as a player and i didnt see many if any fans on here questioning his capacity as co captain at this time. He has not returned to that level as a player. As a leader he showed that in finals last year. Where players and leaders are made. Im not denying he has
