JLT Series - Non MFC Games

Recommended Posts

Because I'm a bit bored this week with us not featuring I thought we could get some practice in for the year ahead analysing our opposition.

If anyone watched any of the other games last weekend feel free to post your thoughts.

I only watched a Q & a bit of tonights game and thought the Saints disposal was really poor. Both teams looked average but who brought the standard down or are either not a real threat?

Interested to see how we match up against the Saints next week at Casey...

Conditions weren't real flash tonight, but the Saints seemed to lack a bit of polish while the Blues seemed to want it more.  Having said that, Bolton will want to take any win he can so no doubt he pushed his players a bit more than Richo might have.

McCartin kicked a couple but he looks like an uncoordinated 13 year old who doesn't know what to do with a body that's larger than most.

The bit I saw (and it encouraged me to switch off)- Scummers had flooded back, and the Aints were going laterally back and forth outside 50 before bombing it straight to Liam Jones.  Reminded me too much of our bad old days.  Both sides were scrappy and lacked polish.  Lets see if the Saints clean things up a bit for next week against us.

Collingwood no skill and love the boundary.  GWS are rusty.  Unappealing game so far.

It's the classic pre-season game really.  Both teams missing plenty of their best 22 which doesn't help.

So is Treloar injured? Where's he? Have I been under a rock? They look ordinary without his line breaking.

Interesting Brodie is beating the GWS ruck, Simpson 24-9 but Collingwood can't get their hands on the ball.

Thought Collingwood had one of the AFL's  leading midfields :D

Bucks has this squad going nowhere. Also think they've got a bog ordinary list too.

Could be a blessing in disguise allowing Bucks to get a two year deal in Round 23 last year. Haha. I'll get smashed for that.

As Roosy says, they've got no brand. Okay, GWS are defending well, but they're still playing the boundary hugging style Malthouse was playing almost a decade ago.

We kick more in a quarter than Collingwood do a game. They have got a lot of players missing though. As they always do.

On the face of it, Pies fans will say they were missing some important players.  

Deep down though, they'll be worried.  It's the same old game play with the same old players.  Bucks is too stubborn to change.

Does anyone know how much game time Chris Mayne had? I see he had 2 disposals at 50% DE. It’s better than last seasons 45% DE I suppose.

That’s about 10k per possession for Mayne, isn’t it?

Not bad if you can get it.

I’d just get two touches and go home as well. At least he’s not greedy.

Yes they are missing players, but they are injured, that's their problem year after year the same players are injured, but dunn is more happy that he is at a better team, and Adam is at a club with a better and younger list, does anyone else notice when ever a collingwood player is interviewed, they always refer to being at the best club, even first year players. They are all brainwashed there, that they are a great team and everything is going well and they are happy with Buckley, it's like they are all north Koreans, who can't say a bad thing about their leaders.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    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
