  1. Lever on SEN Tuesday 21/11 @ 8:25am

    LOL, took me until bullet point 5 to realise what was happening. Well played, CB.
  2. Rd 1 Team with Lever

    Midfield speed and spread still a major issue. Overabundance of slow big bodied mids.
  3. Phantom Draft Form Guide

    Another one that doesnt have the balls to do an actual mock draft.
  4. What is this power rankings garbage? I notice the Twomey guy on afl.com does the same thing. Doesn't anyone have the balls to predict the actual draft anymore (ie mock draft)?
  5. A phenomenal season with Casey and was red hot again in yesterdays final with another 4 goals. 20 years old, 186 cm, beautiful left boot, fantastic mark, great goal sense. Sitting 5th in the VFL goalkicking. Could be Hannan 2.0, though his upside is even greater. Get him.
  6. Preseason Training - Week commencing 13/11/17

    “They’ve come back in OK shape – some that we would’ve liked to have come back a bit better".
  7. Preseason Training - Week commencing 6/11/17

    Oh true. Nice work @stevethemanjordan
  8. Preseason Training - Week commencing 6/11/17

    Are they training today, or did they come back for one session followed by a few more weeks off?
  9. Best MFC team in last 50 years

    Tingay, Obst, G Lovett, Johnstone, Yze, Woewodin... but no Todd Viney?
  10. Top 10 Exciting Demons

    Jurrah, Jakovich and Farmer all on 28 votes.
  11. Hard exercise, I'm sure many will disagree with some selections and on those I did not include. (and no I didnt overlook Woewodins brownlow medal year, Im well aware I omitted it). 1. David Schwarz, 1994 - Led competition in marks, kicked 60 goals at CHF, dominated the first two weeks of finals. Widely regarded as the equal to Wayne Carey. And he did it in style. 2. Jim Stynes, 1991 - Brownlow medal winner with 25 votes. AA ruckman Redefined the ruck position by averaging 26 disposals, 9 marks and chipping in 15 goals. B and F. 3. Garry Lyon, 1994 - 79 goals, including 10 in a final. Went into the midfield in numerous final quarters when the team needed a lift, and he always delivered. All Australian. B and F. 4. David Neitz, 2002 - 82 goals, AA full forward and a rare Coleman Medal for the Melbourne Football Club. Became a great leader and one of the comps best enforcers and most intimidating big men. B and F. 5. Clayton Oliver, 2017 - One of the greatest seasons a teenager has ever played, culminating in a landslide victory in the Best and Fairest. Became the only Melbourne player in club history to average 30 disposals in a season. 6. Jeff Farmer, 2000 - Electrified the comp, kicking 76 goals including 9 on Queens Birthday and 8 in the Prelim FInal, helping the Dees into the granny. All Australian. 7. Garry Lyon, 1995 - ,Makes it 70+ goals in back to back seasons, and earns his third straight All Australian selection. 8. Max Gawn, 2016 - A dominant season, winding the clock back to the days of the great Jimmy Stynes. AA ruckman and polled 16 Brownlow votes. 9. Allen Jakovich, 1991 - 71 goals in 14 games, it was a record breaking season. Eight goals in the first final, vs Essendon, eliminating them. Fastest player to 50 career goals. 19 scoring shots in a single game. Possibly would have been number 1 on this list if he had played even just a few more matches. 10. David Neitz, 1995 - In just his third season, future skipper David Neitz holds down centre half back with distinction, and is named in the All Australian team.
  12. Famous MFC jumper number

    Number 9 - Neitz, Dixon, Fowler, Alan Johnson Its available with Trengoves departure. Maybe Lever will take it.
  13. Top 10 individual seasons last 30 years

    You are right... I forgot to mention all the goals he kicked that year. To be honest I had forgotten he had pinch hit as a backmen, while playing forward. Thought it was the other way around. Was a superb season.
  14. 20 Great Games

    Melbourne vs Adelaide 2002 Semi FInal A loss unfortunately, but an incredible game. And this, eliminating Essendrug from the finals, Stynes dominating and Jakovich kicking 8
  15. Top 10 individual seasons last 30 years

    Yes that was one of my honorable mentions (which I forgot to list.)... in fact it was the first one. Great season.
  16. Top 10 individual seasons last 30 years

    It was a very good year but overrated. The midfield was deep but very even, he was one part of that machine. Dont rate his season any higher than Rigoni, leoncelli or Powell. Didn't even make the AA team (and rightly so).. Averaged a very low disposal count, lowest ever for a Brownlow medal winning midfielder. Basically he stole the medal. Would easily take any of the 10 seasons I listed ahead of it.
  17. Top 10 Exciting Demons

    Yes he was. Went right over my head.
  18. Top 10 Exciting Demons

    What are you talking about, heaps of people have mentioned him and hes also coming 4th in the poll. Which right now is looking like a photo finish between Jurrah, Farmer and the great man Allen Jakovich.
  19. David Schwarz

    Yes it is. A lot different.
  20. David Schwarz

    Gaz had 18 disposals, 11 marks and kicked 10.4. The most recent player to kick double figures in a final. What a duo they were.
  21. David Schwarz

    What do you mean ' a knee reco'. ..... Schwarz had three knee recos, and came back and won a B and F and played in a grand final. Schwarzs 1994 season was way better than Olivers 2017. And included a dominant finals series. You're showing a severe lack of respect to The Ox.
  22. David Schwarz

    Is anyone here saying he was a superstar? He would have been, no doubt. His 1994 season is probably the best individual season by any Demon of the last 30 years. Maybe longer. Booted 60 goals at true Centre Half forward, and led the comp in marks. Had a brilliant final series, and was as exciting as any player in the league.
  23. Top 10 Exciting Demons

    1. Allen Jakovich 2. The Ox pre knee 3. Jeff Farmer 4. Liam Jurrah Daylight........................... Whoever else
  24. 2018 Membership Thread

    This is pretty silly. Sledging happens every game. Me thinks you've taken it a tad too seriously.
