    AFLW 2023 Round 1 v Collingwood, Friday 1 September @Ikon Park

    Campbell didn't get much of it and dropped a couple of marks but was worth it just for letting Harris run around creating carnage rather than having to second ruck. Good signs against a mid-table side, keen to see us play contenders again.

    AFLW 2023 Round 1 v Collingwood, Friday 1 September @Ikon Park

    Until half time this was regrettably looking like a good prediction. Then whack x8 and it looks like we're an attacking juggernaut.

    AFLW 2023 Round 1 v Collingwood, Friday 1 September @Ikon Park

    M, F, or Other, the biggest vulnerability we have is not getting a big enough score to cover the good work of the defenders. Here's to Campbell as second ruck freeing up Harris to kick goals. Also enjoying Paxman's rebrand. Why come up with an entirely new first name when you can just sub in...

    Colin Carter – Football’s Forgotten Years

    Agree that pre-1897 VFA games/goals should be noted on player records (albeit separately), but the problem is getting confirmed lineups and totals. Even for all the good work done by Mark Pennings in his books, I still don't have the confirmed name of every 1896 MFC player let alone the years...

    Player Watch #6 Brodie Grundy – is not a forward

    Agree with this, it might not be what they were aiming for but if it inadvertently keeps Gawn fresh until the end of the season then it's been worth every cent. It's like a higher stakes/shorter-term version of when they recruited Melksham as a defender, realised it wasn't working three weeks...

    Universal Love Melbourne memories

    The handbrake went on with force after we beat Port. Given how easily we beat Freo for win #4, imagine how much we'd have needed to cheat to lose in that game if McMahon hadn't kicked his goal after the siren.

    Universal Love Melbourne memories

    Anyone else go to the Freo game at the MCG later that year when we briefly stopped tanking and won them by 10 goals? 13,000 is the lowest MCG crowd I've ever been in, and it felt it. I stood in the same line to get a hot dog as Jordie McKenzie.

    Universal Love Melbourne memories

    McKenzie was the only player who came out of 186 with any credit, then they declined to award B&F votes for that game so he came out empty-handed. Also tagged Brendan Goddard into the ground when we were complete pox in early 2012, then just as you thought we might win a game... scoreless last...

    Mega Thread General MFC Discussion Part III

    Hello internet football friends, as you may know I released a book a couple of years ago about the 1964 premiership and its unfortunate aftermath. It's reached the end of its life in bookstores but I've snatched a few copies before they can be pulped Alan Partridge style to sell directly at a...

    Player Watch #12: Lachie Hunter – one of our best value trades ever?

    He might have been suspended, but not before treating the AFL inquisitor like a dickhead. Very enjoyable. Possibly assisted by previous experience undergoing questioning by the authorities.

    Colin Carter – Football’s Forgotten Years

    I can't comment on the book itself, but I'd reluctantly accept VFA premierships being counted in the 'senior premiership' tally as long as they were clearly separated from VFL (e.g. the team has won 11 senior premierships - 2 in the VFA, 9 in the VFL. And in this case Port can have all their...

    Before they withdrew due WW1, Melbourne's zone for 1916 was meant to be: Commencing at a point at the junction of Victoria-street and Elizabeth-street, thence easterly along Victoria street and Victoria-parade to Hoddle-street; thence southerly along Hoddle-street and Punt-road to the River...
