    The Many Sides of Jake Melksham

    His marking on the weekend stood out to me. Hadn't seen him clunk them that well this season but he really committed and took some beauties on the lead and contested. Will need more of this going forward.

    Hibberd Ruled Out of Cats Clash with Quad

    My thoughts exactly. I think he's got himself in the perfect position to make a real impact at AFL level this season and prove himself. Also is currently is best place to replace Vince/Lewis in near future with very similar attributes. Hope he gets selected tonight and really proves himself.

    Hibberd Ruled Out of Cats Clash with Quad

    Yup this. Hibberd is so important with his use of the ball rebounding out of the backline. It will be Wagner to replace him who when playing with confidence can really use the ball well. I thought he was unlucky earlier in the year to be dropped. He showed real improvement with his contested work, tackling and competing in the air. He's still no where near the player that Hibbo is but he is certainly the best replacement to keep somewhat of the team structures down back and not unsettle things too much.

    vanders launches long bomb from the middle

    think the main worry would be fitness. Even when he was fully fit he'd tire at the end of games with all the effort he puts in. Hope he can build up the tank and push for selection close to finals!

    Can't believe people are forgetting about Travis Johnstone....

    Brayshaw is fast becoming one also.

    Mr Jones

    You would have thought we lost the game on the weekend and Jones was the main reason... I agree with @SPC this is an odd thread. Unless he starts stringing together really poor games I don't think this is really a discussion. He had a really consistent first half of the year and since has played more of defensive role in the midfield blocking the oppositions midfielders while Brayshaw, Oliver, Trac and Viney win the ball. His disposal has never been elite by any lengths and neither is his speed but he's still best 22. The discussions about how MFC moves forward with Jones should be left until next year and post finals campaign/run to see how he can compete.

    King: Oliver can be Dee's Dusty

    These types comparisons/hypotheses get thrown up so frequently to players without much sample size. It's great click bate! That being said Oliver was a terrific mark at jnr level and while I certainly want him spending most of his time in the midfield I do prefer the swap with Petracca from mid to forward then I did with Trac/Hogan. It gives the midfield more balance and seems to allow better cohesion in the midfield with who is winning the ball at ground level and who is playing the outside mid role.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 17

    I'm confused. What makes him a good replacement for Nev? I wasn't aware that he had any time spent playing down back....?

    Round 17 Non MFC Games

    The reliance on the medical condition of the player who has been hit high is a newish thing yeah? Would Tex not be in line for a week or two in the past without taking into consideration concussion or damage etc?

    Round 17 Non MFC Games

    Anyone else think that Eddie's was a goal? I thought Stewart swiped but missed it. Didn't see the ball change rotation in the slow mode. Edit: saw that replay just now. Probably touched.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 17

    I don't think JKH has necessarily been in better form then Baker. I think its more about the role they want to fill, based around forward/half forward pressure which JKH at the very least provided last week. With Baker I understand he has speed and has strung together a few decent games at Casey but you can see he is still very raw and needs to work on his defense and positioning. We saw what happened last time we brought in a 19/20 yr old too early and I think against a fired up doggies outfit Oscar might get a bit lost on the wide open MCG. Listening to Rawlings on the podcast last week he still sounds like he's developing well but not there yet. I was surprised to see JKH selected.

    Round 17 Non MFC Games

    Was about to say the same. He is so f####ing cunning. The master at creating free kicks. The toughest body that flops at the perfect times.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 17

    I guess the FD liked our balance last week. In terms of players who can play mid/forward and apply that pressure and spread that Stretch did last week I don't think JKH is a bad option. I'm glad we didn't pick Baker who clearly isn't ready. Who else would you pick to play this role? Kent isn't there yet being rusty in his first few games back. Only other I can think of is Bugg and I don't think he has enough dash to play on a wing. JKH isn't slow lol. He'd be as quick as Spargo or ANB. Not slow
