  1. Long time member, infrequent poster! This is a long shot but because I'm getting all sorts of grief from mates for claiming it... can any Demonland brethren who were player sponsors in the mid 2000's remember a post draft debrief we got from Craig Cameron and Craig was asked why we overlooked Eddie in the ND. CC said their medical staff thought he'd be injury prone. I'm starting to think I dreamt this?!? Oh. well. What a career he's had.
  2. Hird would never put himself in a 'live' position that would generate hard questions. What happens is really up to Holmes but I'd suggest she is comfortable with her existence and position in the journalistic world and is evidently a Hird groupie based on the her defence of him in regard to an Age editorial and her mantra that she deals in facts. Facts are hard to establish when the truth is deliberately hidden and that is what convicted Hird and his players. IMHO if the ABC were fair dinkum they'd have Gerard Whateley doing this interview, not a lightweight. Therefore I won't waste my time watching it.
  3. And lots of interstate sides. The AFL truly hate us.
  4. Starting to look like the same fixture year in, year out, with a bit of tinkering. Commercially it's disaster except for QB and Anzac eve. Thanks Ch 7 for freeing my Friday nights....every cloud has a silver lining. Loosing GF side in Darwin! I'm a 0% chance of fronting up for 3rd trip to Darwin
  5. Such a [censored] bloke and a fraud. Talks about respect and the sanctity of the day and then whines as soon as he sees a threat to Collingwood's financial interests or limelight. Compares Anzac day to Xmas....WTH? Support the additional focus on the commemoration of the day, including it's lead up! Stop being a pathetic, swollen, little, red gnome.
  6. This has surely all come about as a result of being unable to attract the 'A' grade midfielder? So we have to develop our own but I plead ignorance in regard to how we'll now use those picks in a "shallow" draft?
  7. One thing I hadn't realised about Brock until after he left Melbourne was how disinvested in the game he is. Pedigree and talent are only two small parts of the picture that will make a successful career of footy (or many things actually) and Brock at some point seems to have said it's all too hard? His donation to the MFC was a great gesture but was it to cover some missing part in in his application to tasks?
  8. That was a little frightening to consider a week ago but I'm over it already. As it stands right now Lumumba can make our footy club better and Clark couldn't.
  9. Bail was one of the few who could get forward in space and kick a goal last yea. That's value adding.
  10. Punished for playing in ordinary sides obviously. Personally I find it more unfathomable that he only won one Bluey!
  11. I don't think there's any greater proof of the blokes influence as a footballer and his example to be admired in saying that he was the reason I came to support Melbourne. Swept up in the fervour of the run to the finals in '87. Well played Robbie. Legend!
  12. Why KC? And I ask because I assume as others have that this has a fair bit of MFC in it, or would I be off the mark?
  13. Yes from me. I'm also happy that the day after Greg Swann shot his mouth off about Melbourne's compensation for loosing Frawley that Mahoney has come out and announced that we are into Merrett.
  14. Haven't had a Parma there but did have a meal at the Night with Roosy and it was excellent. It's a great renovation they've done down there.
  15. The Ted/Denis governments have been awful. Its taken them until 3 years to get a major project on the drawings board and no one seems to be able to prove why it's the go-to project? Seems like it is because it can be privately funded? Napthine has spent the last 2 years spinning. Compared to the can do that Kennett brought (like him or not) this lot deserve to be one termers....and that's saying something because I'm far from convinced about the alternative! The last 4 years have sort of confirmed for me that State politicians are the dregs.
  16. I reckon Melbourne have made enough mistakes without recruiting a bloke who's name may as well have been Dayle Mistake.
  17. I'm looking on the bright side of this. It'll bring much greater joy to see Norf go down with the TV cameras honed in on the little sook.
  18. I'm going and for the B & F going with Jones Dunn Tyson Vince Jetta
  19. CBF reading this whole thread but I noticed a lot of people weren't so much offended by the fact they dressed that way, but that they posted the pic and how it went from there? What's that about?? If you think it's OK to go for laughs based around a theme of paedophilia then have a good look at yourself. It's completely wrong. Nothing to do with PC and we shouldn't loose sight of that just because it's 'Mad Monday'. Same standards apply across society, they're not different for those we put on a pedestal because they kick a footy.
  20. I don't get my call on every player right but I'm gonna dine out on Stef's success this year.....exactly as I called it. Brisbane gave him the responsibility of the No. 1 ruck roll (even if forced) and he did the job, as he did at Melbourne.
  21. Even though I voted tot retain we can't have a bloke in the side who is patting opponents on the back after tackling them, as I saw him do a few weeks ago. Yes, his biggest issue is his lack of intensity and it's the fault of the MFC that it hasn't been removed.
  22. A great human being. Much respect. RIP
  23. For all his good attributes Jack has one flaw he needs to fix ASAP and it bloody irritates me that players get to this level and have this issue..... HE'S ONE SIDED! He tried to kick once on his right foot on Saturday night and it was a roller. Was also run down because he couldn't get on his left side. No player is complete if they can't kick at least competently with their non-preferred foot.
  24. I reckon you'd be right if you book a cab or VHA/B car to get you there? You might have the option of leaving early as well (hope not) but if you do stay to the end and have to hot foot it it'll have been worth it!
