Jordan Lewis Out with Broken Hand

A bit of unecessary vitriol from some.

I wish him all the best for a speedy 6-8 week recovery, when it's all mended and he's ready to go, he's not amune from a month in the magoo's. Recover your touch son and work your butt off to get back in the side.

So many sh.t supporters potting a bloke who broke his hand and still played over a half of football with it. 

I assume most who are potting would miss a day of work with a paper cut.  

Poor form.

How is he out of form? He Was the highest possession winner against North and one of the main reasons we beat Brisbane. 

Are you basing his drop in form from Sunday when he played with a broken hand?

Timely for selection purposes.

Three year deal if I remember correctly. However I think it was always understood that the third year would see him ease into coaching. That now looks more likely to be sooner. He is far too slow now, broken hand or not. Don't expect to see a lot of him on field in the second half of this year.

Trading lesson 101: the Hawks never give much away unless there is much to be gained (such as a rare commodity like a good ruck man).

Played terribly v Hawks, so did 90% of the team. Played very well v North and from what the club said they were happy with his role v Brissy. He's an important player but for me he's not doing enough. Maybe this time off gives him a chance to get a few other niggles right, and he can maybe lend his experience in the coaching box.

That might be a balanced perspective .

Probably means that one of the serial 2018 under performers like Harmes, Melksham, ANB, Bugg or even Fritsch will be spared the axe.

Tough on Fritsch who was still trying to make things happen in the final quarter against Hawthorn and who has contributed every other week. No argument otherwise.

I have no issues at all that Jordans form has been down. He may have warranted a 'freshener' in the Magoos , but the sheer nastiness from some is not welcome for mine.

Yes I was extremely tough and unfair on Fritsch as he was trying in the last qtr compared to about 18 others.

However, he's having little influence on games apart from the odd nice cameo and may have to make way for Hannan to mix things up. Such is the tough position that is the forward pocket.

Some have Garlett on the chopping block, but he survives purely because he has a proven track record of responding after a horrid performance....and that was horrid V's Hawks.

This is a blow to me.

Yep he had a shocker last week but he's been one our more consistent players at impacting the game early in the season. His ball use is still so much better then a lot of our young players. He more often then not at least makes the right decision by foot even if he misqueues occasionally. 

On the big stage in a heated game its always useful to have cool calm heads who use the ball effectively off half back. A steadier down back that will miss a chance next Wednesday to bounce back after a terrible game.

Was he planning to pay for the pies or bombers mongrel? Sorry could not help myself.

Perhaps sadly Ernest I have got to the point with the MFC that I don't care about the individual anymore. Over the last 50 years numerous playing groups have completely worn away my " care factor for the individual" we have paid top ups to so many end of their time players over the years that my attitude is close to " if you cannot cut it get out of the road and let someone else have a go" 

I am only interested in winners over hill players can nick off.

Brutal ? Yes.

Brutally fair OD.

Bit hard on Bailey. I agree on the other 3 they  need a rocket.

Broke his hand playing footy for our club, all the best for his recovery. 

Agreed.

While I don't want him playing senior footy at the moment, it certainly was not my hope that he is forced out of the team with injury.

Wishing him a speedy recovery.

Perhaps not. 

Perhaps a retirement trip to Paris, a nice little bar and a glass of Ricard/water and ice.

    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
