Back in 2017 when we started the season with 5 wins for the first time since ‘95 hardly anyone said we were any good. In fact the common refrain was that we hadn’t beaten anyone of quality. Weird how they’re salivating over Egobourne.

Well hopefully after they go 5-0 this week we can bring them back down to earth on ANZAC Eve with a thud.

normally the sides that finish top 4-6 are slower out of the gates and this year was the shortest pre season gap between from one season to another in afl/vfl history especially for geelong,tigers ,9 weeks less than non finalist from a normal season.

Obviously seen what a great job Peggy has done. I expect to hear in the next few days that Goodwin is dating a junior staffer and the HUN will have photos of them walking the dog in Elwood. Petracca will run out this week covered in tatts and will appear in a TV ad for Tradie jocks.
Can't be stepping on the Homey Badgers turf ...

Hah hah hah hah. Dudbourne. FFS. Do people ever learn anything ? They've sharpened up their ball movement (which has been terrible the last few years), but they've got little to nothing up forward and are almost exclusively relying on short kicks to small forwards to kick a score. That's got a limited future - especially against well co-ordinated backlines.

Spargo, Neal-Bullen, Jones, Sparrow, Langdon, Tomlinson, Jordon ....and others. Please, give me a break.
I'll judge Dees when they have played some decent sides, they are the only team atm to have not yet played a top 8 side....
they have also had 21 players that have played in every game.

Not sticking up for the GoDeez, but people levelled the same criticism at us at the start of 2017.

Geez I hope WCE flog Scumwood tonight. Scumwood winning would actually benefit us more, but the thought of ending their season, the turmoil etc. that would follow, is just too good to not wish for.

Well, Jonathon Patton has decided to retire immediately.

Wow. Talk about a career gone wrong. Next superstar key forward, cruelled by injuries, then cruelled by his own idiocy. All done.

I said to Gillon McLachlan that I will be using this platform to promote those equity issues every single chance I get because it is so important to do more. We have got to be better. It is as much about being a female president as it is being president of the mighty Melbourne Dees."

I'm sure those are the words every long-suffering Melbourne fan wanted to hear.

Sounds like the mind is already away from the job & they have run for the position for all the wrong reasons.

Is she somehow related to the goal umpire with the nice arse? Chelsea?? :peepwall

Knowledge, skill, talent, conviction, application, appetite for the role, should always be the precursors for any role. Not whether it's female or male or we need to " equalise " just because it's not fair otherwise.

Farkin Wet Coke. Think they'd take their collective hand off it at home, bunch of flamin knob jockeys.
