  1. Absolute belter of a guernsey. Even my aint supporting wife had to admit it is the best of 'em.
  2. I wonder what evidence there is for the supposed good list @ the baggers. Surely footballers with brains and heart would have pride in their performance. Meh, overrated rabble. "We're coming" - we're waiting.
  3. Almost regardless of his form, almost, Sam offers the MFC team structure more than Ben Brown - hell, Mitch Brown does too. Whatever skills Ben has displayed in the past, in a frankly pretty putrid Norf outfit, they are invisible in a 2021 game structure. Even the the Norf brains trust (an oxymoron if ever there was one) recognised it. Nothing to see here from a tempo destroying selfish player. Sam is team oriented; Ben is Oscar Mac with a crap haircut.
  4. The problem for JKH, and Stretch for that matter, is that they fall somewhere between AFL and VFL standard.
  5. Is this part of an ""up you Hungry Jacks" from the Scottish restaurant?
  6. I was 10 years old. Great uncle Bill was always able to get tickets in the days when you had to buy a series ticket. The pre game at the old MCG Hotel was the first time I'd ever sat in a front bar anywhere. As for the game itself, I'd always loved John Lord. It seemed unbelievable that a bloke as bald as grandpa was actually playing footy. And the revolting Gabelich clocked him - boo. Don Williams was a favourite though with the brycreemed, slick back hair and white ankle bandages. Sadly, the game is a mist. I remember celebrating but didn't that always happen? I mean Melbourne always won. So imagine how shocked I was 12 months later and they didn't make the four!
  7. The problem for Jeffy is that the version most people want in is 2016 not 2018.
  8. Freo?? FFS. What player with any brain at all would sign with that shower and play under Lyon? No matter how much cash they shoved at you.
  9. Wow, hold the front page. Millennial does drugs - who woulda thunk it? Clear him to Port.
  10. I think Hugh has been disappointing at the Aints. Only his first game for the year on Saturday and didn't do much. Bit of size but pass.
  11. Bit of unfair criticism for Judd here. You gotta remember he was captain at Meth Coast where Cousins, Gardiner, Chick etc all knew a thing or two about celebrations. Respect.
  12. Watts may be unique in that by one move he has improved two football teams.
  13. Personally I hate Friday nights. The weekend's over and no footy.
  14. Lewis is the most over rated player on the list. Sure he's got a history - but that's in the poos and wees. He is an exemplary pointer and we cleared Jack Watts to make room for that skill. He can make at least one glaring, goal conceding stuff-up per game and we dropped Bernie Vince to allow him room for that statistic. Maybe we could drop Jones and Viney for his captaincy skills?
  15. I reckon the Doggies were pretty upbeat about heir list post 2016. The Tiggies are certainly fizzing this year. Keep calm and carry on.
  16. Fritsch is a couple of years younger than VdB was when he was drafted and a completely different body shape and playing style. Smith is a risk.
  17. I suspect the issue for VdB and similar mature age recruits is the lack of body conditioning when they physically mature. A part time footballer, and part time worker, will be behind an age group peer with a full time commitment to fitness and football. And that's exacerbated with a larger body. I spoke with him at the Hall of Fame dinner last year and with a degree of sadness he said that he thought he was "cooked" back then. Kudos for the character in trying to get himself fit and live the dream but he looks on borrowed time.
  18. Grenville vs Grave Danger must have been something!
  19. I know that it was a different time, but wasn't Grenville Dietrich the North Adelaide go-to man in the early 80's?
  20. An anti-MCC rant might be understandable if the MFC were not a sporting section of the cricket club. But it is. And was in the halcyon days of Checker and Norm.
  21. It's hard to imagine anyone on the MFC list that the Aints wouldn't be chasing.
