and Red that will have absolutely no relevance to  Jay's ability to get back on the paddock  ( for starters ) , consistently  and into the 22

That was not my point BB.

Isn't SPC's avatar Nathan Brown?

Correct Nasher, my boo boo. On a closer look it is Doggy Brown, not Harmes though they look similar.

I like JKH cos he has a crack but he's not good enough. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I'd be looking at re-launching his acting career if I were him.

Gotta feel for the lad as it seemed like he was in contention for a rd 1 spot. It's going to be really hard for him to work his back into the team halfway through the season but best of luck to him.

Jay has plenty of talent and is only a 24 yo . Playing for Casey last season he  strung a number of games together and produced his best form by becoming a ball magnet with 30 plus possessions in games and ended up playing a number of games for Dees. IMO  he handled himself well and deserved his promotion.

I hope that he does receive the 2 year extension where it will give Jay confidence .He deserves it.

Rookie List possible Depending upon how last half of year goes.

Hope he can get through as I really feel he has improved since mid-season 2018.

Deserves a break of luck.

Feel for the kid with this injury, as it seems like he's been working hard to break back into the ones. As said above, he racks up massive possessions at Casey but just can't seem to help fading away in the Dees.

I consider JKH mostly pointless from a list perspective, but skip back just one page and everything being said now has been said before. Someone mentioned he'd been on our payroll for more than half a decade, and when framed like that it's quite the jolt. He's survived longer than pick 4 Jimmy Toumpas.

We have no room for sentiment anymore - unless he comes back with a vengeance this year, there will be no extension.

Not sure why you added the "pick 4" bit. Adds nothing.

Ladies and Gentlemen ...you can't keep them all.

For all his efforts, and credit to the lad he's given it a good go, he at his best is among our top 30. perhaps. He has lots of competition from some with more upside and more tricks in the bag.

Skuit sums up... it's all been said before. 

I wish the bloke a full and speedy recovery but just don't see him as being a keeper.

Cheers

To me JKH is an improver this year. He just misses jumping through to that edge of hardness in my book, and i think it's just around the corner. Good luck for the rest of his season. If i was his coach i would be making him wanted, because i know it helps.

I thought he was a chance for round 1. His JLT form was quite reasonable. While he is not in the best 22 he is a good depth player and deserves his place on the list. I hope he comes back strong.

Like Harmes, JKH has improved each season.   Not by huge margins, but significant anyway.

He has two way running and a tank, but isn't fast or particularly damaging. In general he is competing with ANB or the wings, however the 6 6 6 may mean pace on the wing becomes an important weapon, rather than playing a defensive winger. Also, with Lever back, we may be even less inclined to play a defensive winger because he is such a good reader of the play. 

 

The was a role for him last year

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The
