Quote from the Age  article:

“ One of the aspects of returning to Victoria that excites him most is the chance to watch Romsey play on Saturdays when the Demons play a Friday night game”

It’s a nothing article, really.

That said, I always enjoy reading an article where a Melbourne player is quoted as saying they love the club.

This guy is going to be an absolute gun. But everyone knows that.

His signature was our success in 2017.

Not living in Melbourne, I don't really understand the Romsey comment, so I can only guess that it has something to do with the community in that part of the world.

Anyways, my preferred quote from the article is:   "The footy club is in a really good position and I am just loving every minute here, to be honest."  I know we've all heard it a dozen or more times, and in reality, what else, could he have said (?), but none-the-less it still warms my red and blue heart a tad.

PS  Please bring on the Maroochydore camp, so that we will have some real footy news to comment on.

Just additional incentive for him to win games so we get the odd Friday night game in 2019.

His home town is about 50 mins north of the Melbourne CBD, so he can scoot out of town and go see his mates/family/team play when he can.

Still cant believe we got him.  Best young key defender in the game with a decade of elite footy ahead of him.

Is that a big enough 'fish' for everyone?

I think the comment relates to our multiple Friday night games we are scheduled for....

or not.

Romsey/Lancefied is a beautiful part of the Macedon ranges.  BUT, emphasis is on Jake wanting to come home AND he chose us, being able to go to any Vic club. Bummers would have been more convenient.

The other aspect of the article is just how stressed his life has been last few months, yet he turns up to training early in peak condition.

Professional.  And only 21.

Unfortunately Sue, Collingwood or Carlton could go winless this year (what a delicious thought) and they’d get more Friday night games than us.

And Romsey’s a nice town, not too far from where I live.

Lol, just discussing this with my wife who grew up in and around Gisbourne/Macedon. Unfortunately, Romsey is the backwater of the area known as the ‘inbred’ kinda spot where there’s only four families but relative (pun intended) exponential population growth! 

A little bit ‘Deliverence’.

No slight on Jake, though, what a get for MFC! Carn Dees!

So, Jake has six toes on one foot and plays the banjo?

I think one of the best parts of our recruiting of the last two years is that we got two blokes of high quality (though some of Jordie's on  field sniping might bring him down in some people's eyes) in Lever and Lewis. What's even better is that they wanted to come to us.

It shows we are no longer a cultural backwater like in the days of Beamer's biffs and bruises drinking sessions. I remember is throwing the shop at Luke Ball in 2009 and him bit wanting a bar of us. We got the usual suspects come out and tell us how it was such a huge mistake on his behalf as we had a way higher ceiling than Collingwood (Chortle). It just went to show that the place was rotten and Ball (and Judd before him) knew it.

These days the Balls come to us and not vice versa.

Lever's a good intercept marking 3rd defender that doesn't play on the number 1 gun forward if I recall at Adelaide. He'll hopefully be a great acquisition for our defence.

Now who take Hawkins in round 1? He slaughterd both McDonalds in our last meeting and I can't recall Frost ever winning a duel against a premium A Grade forward?

You can add to Lever and Lewis the recruitment of Melksham and Hibberd, too. Not because they were both superstars, but because they chose us and not as a last resort.

It's not just Hawkins, the big forwards always kill us. Daniher, Ben Brown, Grundy in r23, Roughead and the other bloke in the 23 for the Hawks who killed us this year (edit - O'Brien), Franklin who usually does a number on us.

I guess they're hoping OMac and/or Frost will come on in leaps and bounds this year and have faith that our midfield strength and zone defence will do the trick. We will still be vulnerable to the "one out" or get out long bomb to the big forwards though.

Most of those forwards do numbers on most teams

With no response from the beast to date, one can only assume it has gone to ground in respect 

of the conclusive evidence, and exposure, as revealed by members of this forum, of the debauchery that occurs 

in and around Romsey with the Manor being the central hub and gathering place of all the 2 headed,

wine swilling igor types, but have no doubt , it will be planning some sort of revenge attack on those who 

seek to expose the true nature of all happenings in and around the area.

You have reason to be afraid.
