  1. Some classics in the match day thread… My favourite is Picket’s: “Max is not a captain’s [censored]” Soidee ”Clarko, can we get him?” Coobs ”can we sack Goodwin” ”Classic Goodwin” Demonland ”Max having a shocker tonight”
  2. Usually the ballot is held some weeks prior to the GF… meaning people get tickets, their team doesn’t make GF and seat/s go empty… Hopefully… the ballot is run in week of GF and/or people have the ability to give up their tickets if they won’t be used. I would hate to get tickets in the ballot a few weeks prior and take someone’s else opportunity away from seeing their team (if Melbourne don’t make it).
  3. 2000 and 2018 if felt like we got on a roll… This year… it feels much more than that. In 2000, after 13rounds we were 6w 7l 2018 in was up and down - put teams away and then had “Adelaide like” loses
  4. 92% efficiency last night… Not a comment at you Demon17, but I am sure some posters just look at the disposals count to work out best players…
  5. Brayshaw: one of the best 10 touches wingman games you will see
  6. Signs a 7year contract and going soft? ?
  7. Craig, can we get the MFC trumpeter involved?
  8. Betting line was 90 points... North basically had to find players this week to form a team including flying some in Only half heard this; but only 4 players last night are North listed?
  9. It’s a party for all forwards... big and small
  10. Jake Lever proved his value with “that” display of leadership after the Brayshaw free. There is absolutely zero doubt to even to the most ardent that we got the trade right!
  11. It’s scary! We are starting to sound like a professional mature club!
  12. The MCC was a mess... family members totalling 10 gave up trying to work out sitting together and didn’t attend. I got seats (meters from Saty). I got seats for my young children directly behind tall large men. I struggled to see, they had no hope. The men were apologetic and tried to move/help. There was no ability to choose where to sit (or change what ticketek deemed best). Half time tried to get a beer... no tap beer and 3 quarter time they had run out of beer cups. Imagine if a crowd had turned up!
  13. Who said McDonald was done?
  14. Mark will do very good things... we may not see them all, but you can see his engagement at training and his results (and ability to bring groups together for a purpose) are outstanding... Another name that is similar and I thought would be great at Melbourne is Gary Ayres.
  15. Seems everyone is in consensus... Bowey and Laurie level above Rosman has to work harder Farmer has tricks - let’s see how they go in WAFL Forward line is a struggle - don’t judge Brown or Bradkte on this VFL players haven’t had a long preseason Edit: Petty been solid Rioli want to join Melbourne?
  16. Or Essendon to Tullamarine or Port Adelaide to Alberton or Brisbane to Springfield or Collingwood to Melb... oh!
  17. Yep... and not full of any hope or optimism!
  18. The quality of game is exponentially improving each season and nearly each game. The second quarter was the best I have ever seen. Just quietly... how good is it having a key forward!!!!
  19. I love January. Full of hope and optimism.
  20. Out of interest, which club is cutting $3mil from their softcap without doing (at the minimum) an internal review? It's such a nothing story.... Even the eventual Premiers will need to do a review including coaching.
  21. Maybe that’s where the senior leaders went at 3/4 quarter time yesterday?
  22. The games are too close together. Doesn't give Dan Murphy's enough time to restock my house..........
  23. Yep, that’s how drafts work..... maybe Jason wanted to....... Do me a favour and grab Dodoro’s or anyone of your fancy over same time period.... then your are objective......
  24. Elegt.... Its not a 50/50 marking system... it’s also not one guy’s decision. Rookies, >40 in draft have less theoretical success rates. 61% of players play >10 games. Less than 1 in 3 play 50 games. So are they all successes? Would be interesting to have a look at Dodoro, etc “success” or whoever you deem as a replacement... you will be surprised. I don’t read every thread, so probably mentioned elsewhere, the guy 3goals against us this week, Jason wanted.
