  1. We must remember that BB is our most accurate kick for goal (closely followed by BF). It should not be underestimated.
  2. There is little point in his going to a mid list club and potentially condemning himself to mid list mediocrity. He can do that in the latter stages of his career when, if it is as successful as we all believe it to be will make him on of the best paid players in the AFL. He has to show that tho consistently in finals and he has to do that in a top club. Neither WA clubs are likely to be that in the next five years.
  3. As l said earlier in this thread, Caro has been a good AFL journalist, but has passed her “use by date”. Nothing better illustrates this than her increasing tendency for partisanship when it comes to Richmond (and her bias against the MFC). Indon’t think she can stand the thought that we just might be becoming an AFL. Superpower, more powerful than Richmond ever were, hence her coverage of thing MFC is consistently biased and offensive.
  4. Happy to keep under the radar, which makes it so much more joyful when we blow them all away in September!
  5. Partially agree, except l think the Cats are too old, and will be (again!) seriously found out come finals.
  6. We will beat them anyway. Cats the most over-rated team in the AFL - also the oldest….they won’t get within 5 goals of us.
  7. Quite. As l said, we select on merit and team structures!
  8. The melbourne way has been we select on merit. It has proved to be successful in the past, at least recently, and in my view should not change it.
  9. I think Caro and Eddie are both as bad as each other. Eddie is the ultimate ego maniac and has no real feel for normal social interaction cos he’s so obsessed with his own ego. The upheaval on social issues and racism at Collingwood since he left can be directly attributed to Eddie’s insensitivity and his self obsession. It was all outlined in the disgraceful facts surrounding Collingwood’s so called “Do Better Report” into Collingwood's systemic racism, which when it was released Eddie amazingly described it as “a great day for the Collingwood Football Club”. This directly led to his being sacked as Pies’ President and his leaving the Board for which Collingwood deserves a great deal of credit. Nevertheless, Maguire continues to push the same insensitive attitudes on Footy Classified on Channel Nine which makes it from my point of view unwatchable, particularly as that Eddie “clone” Ross Lyon is still there as well. As far as Caro is concerned, l think she has been an outstanding AFL journalist in the past, but has well and truly gone past her “use-by date”. It is time for her to retire gracefully before her good name is soiled by those quacks Messrs Mecguire and Lyon. Alternatively, change shows. They are toxic!
  10. Attention getting and re-establishing relevance. Both have failed.
  11. Agree. I think this hysteria around Carlton is totally overblown, fanned by ex Blue-baggers in the media. Still, if it takes space from Caroline Wilson’s relentless propaganda about the Tigers it will be a relief. She can’t help herself that woman. l could list them, but there seems little point. I used to think she was one of the more astute journos on AFL issues, but this year it has become a single minded focus on all things Tiger almost to the exclusion of all else. She finished her summary of last week’s matches by the single sentence on the Dees “l don’t know what to say about melbourne”, and then left it.
  12. David Neitz 195 cm. That should tell us all we need to know…
  13. I agree. I hold no issues with his going to the bullies. It was a rational decision for him. It says something though that he would not have made the Dees GF side. He will not be the only one over the next 3 years….
