    AFL.com.au Halfway Point Grade

    From my point of view and having seen all games and watched quite a few replays it’s a B+. My concern is our defence still leaking too many points. Currently by points conceded there are 9 teams better than us, every other team in the 8 plus Hawthorn and GWS IN 9th and 10th spots. The teams attacking game is spectacular but we leak badly down back. The Melbourne Football Club 2018 is still a work in progress, certainly better I believe than last year but still not an A.

    Demonland Player of the Year - Round 12

    After arriving home from the game last night I thought only 1 player deserved votes. But thinking about the game over night I reckon the 6 below at least tried. As someone above pointed out Max beat Grundy,and my admiration for Fritsch grows every week. 6: Tom McDonald 5: Gawn 4: Fritsch 3: Oliver 2: Brayshaw 1: Lewis

    What the Fritsch

    Looks like a walking cadaver, but sh*t he can play.

    6: Jetta 5: Hogan 4: Gawn 3: Fitsch 2: Brayshaw 1: McDonald Tom
  7. And he’s still greatly respected back at the Doggies. It’s not just Daniel Cross’s playing/training abilities that made him special but his whole outlook on life. I’m certainly glad we’ve still got him.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 10

    I had a quiet laugh to myself when Melksham kicked that goal after a Crow fumble a few cm from our goal line. It reminded me of the sort of things that regularly happened to us in the bad old days, I remember flinching more than once when our ineptitude was exposed in the back half. (Matthew Lloyd and Al Nicholson standing, wrestling with the ball on the goal line and Lloyd nonchalantly pushing it backwards over the line)!

    Peter Jackson's Replacement?

    I wondered if Nicholson would be considered for the post after reading that PJ was stepping down. And yes I really wasn’t a fan either, stolid or dour are adjectives that come to mind when I remember his time as a player. However champion players don’t always make great administrators and no matter how ordinary Nicholson was as a player (110 games!!!!!) he’s kicked a few goals/made a few runs as an administrator. (Is he the right fit for the MFC: that’s another question).

    Tim Watson anti Melbourne

    After attending the game yesterday, and reading comments in this thread about Tim Watson’s anti Melbourne commentary I was interested to view the replay. What I heard was Watson, Bartel and Taylor praising and criticising both teams when they felt. the teams and players deserved it. Watson certainly praised Oliver, Hogan, Gawn and Brayshaw often enough (the praise for Oliver by all commentators bordered on the effusive). That Watson gave credit to StKilda players from time to time is understandable and necessary. I cannot say I’m a great Tim Watson fan, but anti Melbourne commentary - no!
