He's clearly got some talent but it's a sh*t level and he just stands out because he's got serious strength and height. No chance but kinda bloke that would kick bags at local level like his uncle Damien for Shepparton.
His uncle was an absolute freak. Saw him kick 12 straight years ago when he played for Ardmona. The Yze's were ridiculous at all sports they played up here in Shepp.

The bush cats have barely kicked 12 between them since he left. Didn't know there was a shepp poster on here

Would be a pretty fun finals series, but imagine this...

We finish third, and have to travel to face Port Adelaide in a qualifying final after they smacked us at Adelaide Oval earlier in the year. Against all odds we win one on the road. Meanwhile, the first placed Doggies go down to fourth placed Richmond.

It's prelim week. Melbourne v Bulldogs, Richmond v Port. Both the home sides win and set up a Dees v Tigers GF.

Or, option B:

- we lose a home prelim against Port; and then
- we lose a home semifinal against Fremantle; and then
- we crash out and finish 17th in 2022.

They won't beat port over at Adelaide oval

I would much prefer the game to have us at 10-0 and the Bulldogs at 6-4 tbh

Would be even better if Treloar had a shot after the siren to win the game and missed, then they interview him and he breaks down because Collingwood didn't want him
I'm surprised they didn't do a piece on Treloar this week comparing his bravery to the Anzacs.

That would be incredible television

Love the Friday nights , the only concern is the consecutive 6 day breaks heading into round 11. f’ed us in 2017 when he had a similar run and picked up a heap of injuries. After last year though it hopefully won’t be an issue.

Inspired by something I read on the stats board, I'm trying to think of players who have moved between Melbourne and other clubs during the past 30 years or so. This is all pretty much off the top of my head, so I'm sure I've missed a lot of obvious ones. Feel free to add:

Adel -> Melb: Lever, Ingerson
Bris -> Melb: ???
Carl -> Melb: ???
Coll -> Melb: ???
Ess -> Melb: Heffernan, Moorcroft, Hibberd, Melksham, M.Brown
Freo -> Melb: White, Michie, Langdon
GC -> Melb: May
Geel -> Melb: Byrnes, Gillies :grimacing:
GWS -> Melb: Frost, Bugg, McNamara, Tyson, Tomlinson
Haw -> Melb: ???
NM -> Melb: B.Brown, Daw
PA -> Melb: B.Pickett
Rich -> Melb: ???
St.K -> Melb: ???
Syd -> Melb: ???
WC -> Melb: Irving, Turley
WB -> Melb: ???

Melb -> Adel: Thompson, Meesen
Melb -> Bris: Owen, Moloney, Johnstone
Melb -> Carl: Heaver, Spalding, Bugg
Melb -> Coll: Howe, Dunn
Melb -> Ess: ???
Melb -> Freo: Hogan, Farmer
Melb -> GC: Warnock
Melb -> Geel: ???
Melb -> GWS: McDonald :'(, Scully :mad:
Melb -> Haw: Frost
Melb -> NM: Tyson
Melb -> PA: Bishop, Walsh
Melb -> Rich: Miller, Pettard

Yeah definitely a few obvious ones. Off the top of Mt head
Bernie Vince, Peter vardy but Clint bizzle is a huge one imo, also Jordan Lewis and Robbie Campbell but I don't think he played a game.
