    Interesting point you make FCD.
    Millward did well (I feel) to recruit Mann as a utility player from the Storm. He had a tough first game at fullback against Sharks and we then brushed him and he never really found his feat despite some solid cameos from the bench.

    Point being, better ‘coaching‘ may have provided quicker development of this player to compliment the smart recruiting here, resulting in a) better option in the centre position and b) no needed to buy costly replacement when Widdop left.

    History lesson now.

    I have to say I'm a little troubled by this article. Did McGregor agree to an interview with Weidler that would drag his family into a public media soap opera?

    I genuinely feel sorry for his dad and the loss of his mum. Many of us know this feeling, including myself and my better half. We are no different to anyone.

    There's so many questionable points in the article but that's the nature of drama. Blaming the fans is a classic.

    Meanwhile, Cronulla were belted today. In his presser, coach John Morris apologised to the fans.

    Has McGregor ever apologised to the Club's greatest stakeholders?

    Yes..

    He borrowed my JetSki a few years back, and when he returned it he said sorry for not refilling the fuel tank.

    Empty words though at the end of the day.. This was back when fuel prices were sky high.

    Seriously, how many people in Melbourne actually use a JetSki?

    Here in anti-covid land it's t-shirts and shorts. What's the temperature in the purple state?

    There are a surprising number around.. Port Phillip bay, the Gippsland lakes & lake eildon are great spots for an obnoxious stint of jetskiing..

    Were 18 degrees today down here..

    I’ve got a tank top & shorts on, complaining about the heat..

    I have made many visits to Melbourne and lived there for six months in the 1980s.

    It was a November morning when my feet hit a cold lino floor that I decided to move back north. That, and finding that any RL coverage was impossible.

    I still have many of the same friends in Melbourne Good folk... but shit weather, AFL zombies.

    Dementia runs deep within my family tree.

    It certainly awaits me.

    I just wish it started 7 seasons ago.

    True.

    I could boast to my son I've seen saints win more than 11 in a row, making me luckier than my old man.

    0 top 4 finishes since Bennett left
    A measly 2 top 8 finishes since Bennett left
    7 out of 9 times finishing in the bottom half of the comp since Bennett left

    Griffin is no Bennett. I'm not incredibly confident that he will necessarily have us in the top 4 right away, but that should be our next goal. I feel as if he is confident in his ability. His coaching statistics tell us we are in at least for some improvement. Can't argue too much with the club's decision.

    Mary withdrawal is a bit like coming down after a really bad meth induced psychotic episode.

    The giant four headed lizard who usually lives across the road and eats stray garden gnomes turns out to be an old electrical substation.

    It’s like seeing the world for the first time.

    Some of the younger kids have never lived without Mary as head coach. They will need special counselling as they adjust to happiness and a world without excuses.
