Other:  Salem.

"According to Champion Data, Salem attended the second-most centre bounces (21) of any Melbourne player against North Melbourne in Saturday's JLT Community Series hit-out in Tasmania, just one less than clearance specialist Clayton Oliver.

Salem gathered 19 disposals at 84.2 per cent efficiency, winning five clearances and contributing two goal assists in a standout performance".

Salem is the quiet achiever - so silky that people just don't notice what he does.

Agree on all counts, but particularly that Lever will be a huge help. Lever's leadership is impressive and love how he looks to set up the back six. The two will need to develop synergy but good signs so far.

I had to laugh hearing Gary Lyon comment a couple of times about the risk Lever was taking zoning well off (in front actually) of his opponent. Der fred. That's his go and why we've got him.

But it does mean we will inevitably leak some goals over the back and that the other defenders, particularly Tmac's younger brother, will have to cover at some stages (as Lever will too of course), which he did at one point where he came in to swoop on a ball that had got goal side (in the last q?). I have no idea how far he came from (which is one reason i much prefer watching games live) but hit the ball at speed and cleared it saving a near certain goal. 

Yes, well on Stats, Lever was our third worst player, better by one point than Brayshaw and by several points  over Pedersen who played half a game

may turn out alright but he's no star just  yet. I want to see Frost

Went with Bailey but Melksham is making essendon fans eat bucket loads of humble pie! For this reason I'm stoked for him that he has taken his game to another level in red and blue.

ANB for me, but there needs to be more love for Oscar.  He showed improvement in the areas we really need (strength and kicking)

In 10 years time some posters will still be spelling Bayley Bailey.

I went with Fritch because the others played to the level that I expected

ie Fritch wasn't BOG but he impressed me as I didn’t have any expectations before the game but I now think he's going to be a gun. Time will tell

All 3 fantastic, really hard to pick.

An in form Gawn is a salivating prospect. If he regains AA this year we're top 4 IMO. 

ANB has been progressing as steadily as any player I've seen in recent times. His work ethic and attitude must be of the highest order. 

Bayley has already made me forget Jack Watts. Hopefully doesn't go missing in JLT 2 because at this stage he's making me slightly moist and I wanna see him in round 1. 

 

I could go on. Noteworthy - Melk looks likes he's ready to breakout to elite this year. As are a few more. We'll find out soon enough.  

God damn I'm excited for the season actual now ...
