    I have no issue with either Cameron or Geelong here, but the Free Agency thing clearly isn't doing as intended.

    Free agency is broken and there is no equality. It’s something that used to set AFL a part from rubbish sports like EPL, but now it’s broken and footy has never been worse.

    Cats will win flag next year with Cameron up forward.

    They still need to fit him into a salary cap and usually you have to pay a FA overs to bring them in. Other players will need to go out. I really don’t see what the problem is.

  2. Record against teams above us: 1 win, 5 losses

    Record against teams below us: 5 wins, 0 losses

    Games remaining against teams above us: 1 

    Games remaining against teams below us: 5

    We’ll win 10+ and finish 5th.

    Just a question. How many times, while Goodwin has coached us, have we kicked one goal or less in a half of football. 

    Again, some perspective is needed. In this round alone we’ve seen the following:

    Collingwood 1 goal in three quarters

    Hawthorn 1 goal in the second half

    Fremantle 3 goals in the second half

    Carlton 2 goals in the first half

    Adelaide, Richmond, Collingwood 5 goals all game

    West Coast 1 goal in the second half

    Are all of those clubs senior coaches [censored] like a Goody supposedly is?

  4. Unpopular opinion. In round 1, Weitering kept Tom Lynch to no goals, no marks and 9 touches in a Richmond win.

    Maybe the narrative should be a little more about how good Weitering’s start to the season is, rather than how poor TMac was.

    Although I'd love to see us with a training base near the MCG, I feel there won't be the land required in that area to cater for our growing needs over time. Going outside the 3000 post code to locations such as Elsternwick Park or even Dendy Park could present better options. Neither are far from the city and could open the door for public/private partnership with either local council, schools and sporting clubs.

    I reckon it would be great to have a cafe/pub/function area that overlooks the oval and perhaps the interior of the center for people to look into the fitness and training zones. Sort of a way of it being interactive with the fans.

    I would really love it to be at Gosches paddock (and then rename it to Stynes Park), I just wonder if it too ambitious for a small zone.

    Name it after Stynes? After he nearly destroyed the club though  mismanagement... you’ve got to be kidding me.

    Do we ignore the Essendon scratch match because it doesn't suit the upbeat narrative?

    You’re absolutely right. And we should start referencing Casey games when measuring the success of Melbourne’s senior team...  ??‍♂️

    I keep going back to this but check out his marking stats once he was moved back into the forward line.

    Screenshot_2019-11-14 AFL Tables - Bayley Fritsch - Stats - Statistics.png

    For a guy with stick arms he can sure take a grab.

    Based on his last 7 rounds, he’s a 50 goal a year forward if played there permanently. That would have been good enough for 7th in the Coleman this year.

    Must play 22 games forward in 2020.

    Whelan was drafted in 1999.

    Davey in 2004.

    Aussie 2007.

    Jurrah 2008.

    You've listed 4 players drafted over a 10 year span seemingly as an example of how 'often' we recruited Indigenous players.

    We had 5 Indigenous players on our list this year.


    And two of them were busts!
