  1. I know someone who did quite a lot of leadership work at Melbourne this pre season. He does a lot of this work in sporting team, not just AFL. His advice was back in February if picking a Captain Lewis was miles in front of others and one of the best astute leadership candidates he had ever seen. happy to have him as a Demon.
  2. From training looks like IN Salem OuT Wagner gawn looks good
  3. Great to hear big Max say he is only 4 weeks away from full training as the usual hammy recovery now he has stared running. Could play in 5 weeks perhaps!
  4. I spoke with one of the staff behind the coaches box at three qtr time, he said they were waiting scan but could be 4-12 weeks.
  5. If we had been offered Lewis for Pick 30 odd 3 weeks ago I'd have signed on the spot! It'll get done, doesn't fuss me now which pick. Either way we win.
  6. If we get Lewis, Rockliff and Hibberd and Grimes, M Jones, Dunn depart it would be an unbelievable trade period and once again would be with no leaking from the Club. this occurs I honestly couldn't care if we only finish with picks above 40-50 this year, even next. It's classic successful team trading, win now, deal with the future then. And when the future comes round, do it well again because your successful. We would become odds on for finals, and players like VDB, Wagner, Kent or Salem may find getting a game much harder. seems low risk for huge reward
  7. Get him. imagine Rd 14 next year, we are 7-6 coming off a tight loss at the G and heading to Sydney to play the swans. It's raining. We must win to stay in the 8. who gets picked from our list for this game before Lewis?
  8. We have momentum, the single greatest asset of any sporting team. Saturday night Port stood no chance because of it, the GC scrappy win coupled with the Hawks effort means we have it in spades. port had it in 2014, ours seems more sustainable, time will tell. Be great to make it, bugger off North.
  9. Max has become an icon, cult hero. My young boy made yesterday's Herald Sun picture running with Max with the beard on from an Auskick setup this week. 20 young bearded kids in Demons #11, sensational for the kids. Max was wonderful with them, he has 20 new fantastic fans, even the couple who weren't Dee's fans, plus parents!
  10. Pretty simple I reckon, we want to win next week. IN HOGAN OUT WEED Pederson was better than Weed, and as good as the kid looked I'd prefer Hogan vs Port, likewise Pederson. No other change unless injury. cheers to Omac for starting to look very good.
  11. Supercoach lock for 4 years now, usually means a lot of possessions and keeps hitting a target by foot!
  12. I thought it might hurt less the morning after, not so. The utter frustration is subsiding though. This was like a classic game of soccer, with one side absolutely dominating possession, tackles, hard balls and yet still being beaten on the break, a quick long ball in hope that the opposition score from. Fark. They did it time and again. Outside of the obvious turnovers by foot, started by Wagners in the first quarter, we paid a very very big price for Watts, Hogan, Stretch, Viney and more being unable to kick reasonably simple goals from 35m out in front. Full credit to the players who simply went again and again. Gee I'd have liked Salem instead of Wagner or Omac in defence yesterday, just for his kicking alone. We are clearly making progress, slower than I'd like, but no doubt on a true foundation of talent, not aging B and C grade players. The saddest thing about yesterday is it had the potential to be the difining win for this young group, something they look back on and refer to for years to come about how they achieved it. It bloody hurts, it would have been worth 4 points PLUS a truckload of self belief, even for us fans. bugger......
  13. We should be much further in front. But they don't even look like scoring.
  14. Yes he made a few blues, but a great five minutes from grimes with some hardball gets and handballs and the big spoil in their goal square. Give him a break.
  15. Have a look at the Sydney weather bom, hours of heavy rain ahead. It's very wet at the ground but the surface is nice. omac was slotting goals with ease earlier so not impossible to kick straight. swans have several no names playing, so with the right mindset we are a chance.
