    Training - Wednesday 16th January, 2019

    I don't, but it is all we have, to go on. So based on Ptracca's last season, he is improving, buy at a slow rate... and doesn't get involved enough times and win enough possession for mine, and I'd like to see his 1%'s higher. tackles, etc. In short, I want to see him get busier as a player... call it being more consistent, if that's what you like? Staying more involved in the play for longer periods.

    .... Hopefully this is the start ??? of a drop in weight, and better fitness condition, this 2019 preseason ??? Now Mfc website 2019 info. Cristian Petracca. Height 186 cms. Weight 96 kgs. Aaron vandenBerg Height 188 cms Weight 90 Kgs Vanders is a powerful player. is taller than Tracca, and has trimmed his frame to sustain his body and condition in the midfield... and this info says he is 6 Kgs lighter than Tracca's numbers. Now last seasons "Bluey", backs up where the coaches have our players pegged on last seasons output. 2018 Melbourne best and fairest votes 1/ Max Gawn 657 2/ Clayton Oliver 595 3/ James Harmes 468 4/ Nathan Jones 449 5/ Tom McDonald 433 6/ Angus Brayshaw 429 7/ Jake Melksham 428 8/ Christian Salem 403 9/ Neville Jetta 383 10/ Jordan Lewis 366 11/ Jesse Hogan 365 12/ Oscar McDonald 346 13/ Alex Neal-Bullen 322 14/ Michael Hibberd 317 15/ Christian Petracca 268 16/ Bayley Fritsch 261 17/ Jack Viney 244 18/ Charlie Spargo 209 19/ Mitch Hannan 182 20/ Sam Frost 174 ------------------------------------------- Petracca is so far content to follow other elite sportspeople. When will he show he wants to become a true elite himself, instead of admiring his "elite friends" fromn afar... as they star for their clubs, and chosen sports ? The time IS Now, for young Christian to step up... get fitter, fully commit to his chosen sport, and mature into a fine elite player that he is fully capable of being.

    Vanders raring to go

    It takes the edge off oppositions focus, "at point of delivery execution", when Vander's is hunting them. This is the attitude... we want this team wide. Sinc... apologies, for some recently exited, from the Red'n'Blue.

    Vanders raring to go

    Scott Pendlebury of the Magpies is tackled by Aaron Vandenberg of the Demons during the 2015 AFL round 18 match between the Collingwood Magpies and the Melbourne Demons ... all inspiration, is Vander's. He's like a pig dog. .

    Tom Mitchell out for the season

    Nobody mentioned being an "a$$hole"... prb. You know, both Bjorn Borg and John patrick McEnroe, were both legends to me. As was Pat Cash.

    You know, I'd settle for a fiery Murray Weideman type.

    Tom Mitchell out for the season

    Expectations and feeling entitled, are close allies with disappointment, arrogance, and the whole boom & bust scenarios. We live in hope of that carrot being dangled in front of us... and are taught to want that damn carrot, as we grow from infants. I've given up on being good at losing, & a good loser... and say to hell with that, and... just say it openly, honestly, as you think/feel it.

    Ha, your right I didn't see it. My apologies to PRB. But my stance remains, about our attitudes of our past.

    https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/essendon-saga-allan-hird-hits-out-at-asada-chief-and-government-20160509-goppwl.html It wasn't the players fault. It was the off field leadership. That club should still hang its heads in shame.

    He is Too heavy for his height, in today's non stop footy. Also, this is not good for his joints, particularly his knees and cartilage's. Let alone his back health... and ankles. https://www.footywire.com/afl/footy/tp-melbourne-demons?year=2019&sby=8

    Tom Mitchell out for the season

    Sorry PRB. disagree. they place high value on winning. losing gracefully is OK in amateurs... but not in AFL. We lose gracefully and have done now for 50+ years. Maybe if we had been un-accepting of our losing, we might not have been through our past unsuccessful history? Is our grace when losing... one part of our acceptance of the same?

    Complacency is Dees Biggest Hurdle

    This is the way to look at the season in-front of us... and to get mean, nasty, and Hungry. You can bet that young Viney will doing just that, mean nasty and hungry for 2019.

    Complacency is Dees Biggest Hurdle

    Yes, we've been there and done that before my dear Watson. Last time a change of culture was in the 80's, and into early 90's... before our players became distracted by their own brilliance once again. The 90's we had more collective talent than I can remember in a team, and we managed to fluff it all. I believe the boys were kings out on the town tho... Premiers of the night life.

    Probably, right DD. But can I suggest a nickname instead of truck... perhaps something more like 'Marj'... might suit him better.
