  1. Steven May did well considering the small amount of games he played. Love his polished kicking.
  2. Very sad to hear of Bluey/s passing. What a champion winger he was. When he had the ball it was 'catch me if you can'. Gee he was fast. Even Hunty would pale in Bluey's presence. Of course he was courageous and tough and could he ever play football. RIP my Demon hero.
  3. Gawn and Oliver not All Australian material?
  4. I watched the last round of 2018 V GWS. (In an attempt to lift my spirits!)How we have missed AVD this whole season. What an essential player he was. I do hope that if he can get himself fully fit he will not be delisted. Give him one more chance MFC. Watching borderline players now I realised that some could still play footy. Kennedy Harris was lively and more than a useful player. Oscar played well as he did in the finals, Neal Bullen too played well. What has happened this season? Jetta has been not the Neville we know, Hibberd looked so much fitter and faster than he is this season and Brayshaw was outstanding. Max, of course is the true champion he is. At one stage he chased a GWS player with pace for a good fifty metres even though the result was in our hands. Comments ?
  5. Great video Moonshadow. Wonderful. exciting memories. Was that a very young Nev Jetta at the two minute mark of the video?
  6. I didn't see the game. How did Hunt in our forward zone cost us 4 goals? Name the occasions please.
  7. Brad Green and Cameron Bruce would have to be up there too. Debuted in same year. Green played 254 games for the Demons and Bruce 224.Both didn't miss too many games through injury or suspension.
  8. Thanks for the weather update Docs, 25 is not too bad for footy. Dry conditions should suit us. Here's hoping.
  9. Where did they play 20 games this season? I must have missed some matches.
  10. It certainly explains to a large extent our miserable 3 -9 win ratio this year. 818 inside 50's for a total of just 118 goals. The Geelong game was the worst with 72 entries for just 6 goals.Geelong from 48 entries scored 20 goals! We have created opportunities to score but to no avail. Inside 50's are Melbourne 818 Opposition 621.We have won the inside 50 count in 9 games out of 12 this season. We even pipped Collingwood with this stat yesterday, 118 goals 130 behinds is another factor while opposition have scored166-106 against us.Losing Hogan and a very out of form Tom McDonald are also contributing factors. Melksham would certainly help but our kicking for goal is sub standard. So many missed set shots from 35 metres out on very little angle. Wasn't it opening up old wounds when Weideman slotted the ball right through the middle from a very similar shot he had against Adelaide last week. Poor guy, I really felt for him last week and it was great to see so many teammates rush up to console him. He was absolutely shattered. As the poster concluded , How do we fix it? Over to you Simon and forward coaches.
  11. 6. Gawn Amazing game from Maxy. Simply amazing! 5. Harmes 4. Fritsch 3. Oliver 2. May 1. Brayshaw Apologies to Salem and Petracca.
  12. On what basis did he not deserve to be named? Or have you a personal dislike?
  13. Hope you are not implying that Trevor Barker didn't deserve to be in the Hall of Fame? He was a champion footballer and fine young man.
  14. I was thrilled personally that the late, great Trevor Barker was on the list. I coached the Cheltenham High Football team in the 70's and Trevor was in the team. No, he was not a star but a borderline selection week by week. He was a great kid nevertheless. When I heard that Trevor was playing for St Kilda seconds after he left school I thought that was a fantastic effort, Little did I know he was to become a super star in his own right. So sad he passed away at the age of just 39. Watching some Barker highlights I couldn't help comparing him with the also late, great Robbie Flower. They were both such spectacular fearless players. What do others think?
