Thanks NMBB, I gave them a call... all sorted. They said something like " a bird team will win a grand final in 2023 against a team of devils" .

They have my credit card details now, for some reason its been totally maxed out.

But worth it for the info
The biggest plot twist here will be that the 'team of devils' is actually referring to Carlton, not Melbourne.

Fly...we're going to set players up for success...

Waits to play the #2 team in the competition, battling for a top spot and debuts a teenager against Brisbane's small forward line without Moore and playing against the likes of Cameron a few weeks before finals.

McRae, "I don't believe in form"

Later on he says, paraphrasing "They're both at their best when their form is good. Cox's form dropped off" 🤣
He's human after all - a key characteristic of humans being the ability to effortlessly contradict oneself with nary a care in the world

Not me, I always thought we had a decent enough list the previous regime just didn’t get the best out of it.

C’mon, nobody since Hafey has turned a team’s fortunes around so profoundly - and Hafey did it when there were only 12 teams.

And our list isn’t that great, even today. In the Melbourne game last night the best two players on the field were playing for them. IMO Melbourne clearly had the better players. But we have the better team - they play as a better organised unit - and that’s on McRae & co.
