It's KK47 or I riot.

Mur doc - I like what you say there. Kelly? We'll have a place on our list for him.

I'd even give him the number that is popular down here at Lorne which is #69.

Players wear it with pride and attitude.

Hopefully number 1 will get a rest for a year or two. 

I agree, I’ve thought the #1 jinxed for years

I saw on, I think it was instagram that Oliver had changed his username claytonoliver16 and Wagner had changed his username to 13 before promptly changing it.

Why the hell would Oliver change numbers?? 

And who would give Wagner a lower number??? He didn’t even play. Maybe 13 for Casey for Wagner?

I've got no real issues with giving No.1 to the right player, but alternatively, we could put it to one side and say to Jessy "we will just leave this waiting here for you when you get sick of Perth and loosing every week"

Good question, I am not sure.

Perhaps rather a Jinx.

Aside from Dennis Cordner way back in the ether, there have not been many great successes at the Club in this jumper. Certainly not in the last 50 years. 

For me, Jesse's time in that jumper was a disappointment.  And it spent a considerable amount of time in the locker.

Sorry, but I don't understand where you are comming from with either of these statements.  

Jessy's performance for a guy of his age would be top 5% in the league for a key forward.

He had practically one season out of 4 or 5 where he had a stuffed back and a dog of a year last year (but still played 10 games).  Asides from that he has played around 20 out of 22 games per season.

Personally I'm just disappointed that he isn't performing for us in it as both he and the team hit peak maturity and performance.

I like the idea of May in number 1.

Reminds me of the days of 98 when Shanners was the full back. He will be always a Saint historically but I always had a soft spot for him.

I'd give the all important 23 to May, the 12 to KK and 16 to Preuss.

I think I’m happy for the FD to allocate how they see fit and I’ll just learn to love it.

theyd have to expand the locker sizes no way those two boys r gonna be able to live side by side for the next 4 years without getting in each others way. theres a reason the reserve ruckmen r always in the high lockers no one is around them!!

May has been told by Goody he may play forward. So No.1 is obvious but no pressure.

1 May...... Mayday.  That's your nickname

I recon Weid deserves a higher jumper number of his choosing.  Also sends a bit of a message that 'you da man'!

I'd be reluctant to give him 1 though, unless he had his heart set on it.

Leave the numbers alone.

Hurrah moving from #48 jinxed him!

    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
