  1. Footscray is basically token Western Suburbs these days given the gentrification. Out here in the boonies, Melton & Bacchus Marsh WB heartland, that's where you'll find toothless/shoeless doggies fans. Doug Hawkins lives just around the corner from me and I see him regularly grabbing a coffee.
  2. I live out West and it's mostly doggies fans out here. My best mate's wife who I despise is a doggies fan has given me irrational hatred of them as well. Apart from that, most seem ok.
  3. No way we trade Gus. Richmond have shown the blueprint in that you don't need superstars to win flags. Culture and selflessness win flags and Gus is central to that for the Dees.
  4. Big no from me. There are at least 3 or 4 players I'd rather have a medi-sub. If anything McStay going down for Brisbane and having no forward to come in and retain their structure shows the importance of picking players on merit rather than romance. Would love to see Jonesy holding the cup, but I'd also love to see any Melbourne player holding the cup.
  5. I think Bailey Fritsch is an example of what could have been with Jack, although I believe Jack has more natural talent. Jack was drafted to a club that had no idea how to develop talent, which clearly evident through the fact only three players on the list at the time went on to have meaningful careers. Had Jack started his career with the formation of good habits, strong role models and most importantly a genuine enjoyment for the game, we would be looking back on Jack's career in a very different light.
  6. Can't wait for Essendon fans to somehow turn this into some kind of AFL/Umpire conspiracy against them.
  7. Probably get a tattoo somewhere. I'm 34 and don't have one and never have been interested, but this seems like a better time than never.
  8. Or worry about some extreme scenario that statistically shouldn't happen but always does for us?
  9. I thought Gawn played a really good game. He got toweled up by Natnui last year in round 1 and I was worried it might be a similar showing last night. I thought Nicnac started stronger but Gawn outworked him as it went on. He got some good taps to advantage.
  10. Checked the Rising Star odds and we have three players in the top ten with Jackson, Jordon and Rivers. Jackson is now outright favourite to win. I reckon Bowey a chance for a nomination. We've also got Pickett, Petty and Sparrow doing really well. Lots of a good youth coming through which I think doesn't get highlighted much compared to bombers and such.
  11. Does Bowey remind anyone else here or a Salem with speed? Great kick!
  12. I don't know if anyone else here saw the game they played in Perth against the dogs in the wet, but they were absolutely awful. Tried their chip/possession game and got pulled apart. Hopefully same happens against us. If that is anything to go off, we should win comfortably.
  13. I'm taking OP's word for Bedford, so I have no skin in the game here. Based on what he says could potentially play the ANB role of forward who rotates through the middle.
  14. Can we update the ladder on this thread so I can enjoy seeing Richmond in 12th?
  15. As another poster said, I think it just comes down to the way they play. There was some poor free kicks yesterday, but they have a habit of playing in front and they are usually the team being chased.
  16. To be fair he was played in the forward line. Sounds like he may have a future as a mid.
  17. TMac has had as many quiet games as Fritta yet seems to be getting less criticism. He's playing his role very well and probably could do the defensive stuff better, but the reality is he is one of the most underrated forwards in the comp. I was calling him "5 Chance Fritsch" at the start of the season, but he's straightened up his kicking very nicely.
  18. Bloody hell. Real victim complex, us lot.
  19. I liked Ben Brown when he got the ball but he just looked seriously unfit. Happy to go with Weid until he is moving a bit better. Can't recall him getting any separation on his opponent.
  20. Are they running a big discount at the moment?
  21. Privacy coins like Monero are next to untraceable if used right. Most darknet markets don't accept Bitcoin anymore and will only accept Monero as payment because of its private ledger.
  22. Who'd have thought we'd have such a high profile fan!
  23. I personally don't think Bitcoin is the answer to your security question as it has positioned itself more as a storage of wealth. Something like ethereum which is more energy efficient (and apparently the 2.0 release will be something like 99% more energy efficient than the current) is definitely better placed to be a possible candidate for those use cases.
