  1. Sam Frost – 7 As expected, Frost had the job on Tom Hawkins and the much-improved defender was very solid. The Cats forward booted two goals, but both majors came from set-shots where Frost's teammates did not do a good enough job of supporting him. Crucial to Melbourne's finals hopes. i think we are overlooking the simple explanation on Frost, he was more than solid on Tom Hawkins in final last year. As we all know we have been on the wrong side of Hawkins more than a few times over the year. I think Frost will have first crack, he has excellent physical attributes to go with him and allows May to be play more of a Lever type role which was clearly missing last week.
  2. Lots of reading not a lot of posting. I can’t see how Hogan gets to Freo cheaper than what is being offered this year next year. As we understand at best he walks to the draft however I just can’t see Freo being any lower than around pick 4. The challenge for Freo is there well known home ground advantage will win them 5 or 6 games, a couple of surprise results and at 7 wins like this year they finish 14th or 15th. No way Hogan slips through to pick 5 in draft next year, so back to the trade table, however this time Josh Kennedy is a year older and West Coast will be working there numbers to be in the race. My guess this is Freos best chance to land their forward, and won’t be surprised if deal still gets done.
  3. Menzel, makes Jack Watts defensive pressure look elite. If Garlett can’t get a game then I’ll take a pass on his 27 goals cause the rebound will cost us plenty more.
  4. Best read of the last few weeks, and considering the press that’s saying something. First time I have felt we were as important to Roosy in his football journey as he was to Melbourne. Let’s hope there is a few more chapters to this story in 2018
  5. Very rarely post but an avid reader of the forum. Nev’s Game today was reminiscent of the great Gavin Wanganeen, won the ball in the air, on the ground contest after contest. Quite simply watching him today was like watching a virtuoso performance of a master at the absolute top of his game. A must for All Australian.
  6. Not sure Ed Richards will get to our first pick, as it seems he is more highly rated by recruiters than most of the phantom draft "experts". Can tell you that he has met at least 9 clubs already (pre draft camp) and Melbourne on more than one occasion.
  7. Effectively Watts, pick 10 and a third rounder for Lever. Pass
  8. Just an observation for those that espouse that Jack's body of games would indicate that he wouldn't stand up in finals. There would be a handful of games in the last 2-3 seasons where Jack has demonstrated his ability to run both ways and take key marks in defence to save games. He knows how to win, one of the few who wears red and blue who has shown this.
  9. Definitely in the best today, showed why many clubs are currently chasing his services. (Surely the simple fact the multiple clubs are rumoured to be lining up to get his signature indicates that he must have ability - one of the few who pick themselves in a top 8 team!
  10. Think you are being a little tough on a few. Frawley - Jones, one disposal M Jones - Played his role Nicho - Played within limitations Gawn - Presented when required Barry - Showed some glimpses
  11. Was 15 years old, the only time my Pie supporting father ever took me to the footy. Remember standing on a bin in the outer watching my boy hood idol desperately trying to keep not only his season alive but also extending his career by a game and his first finals birth. Through all the gloom that 42 years of supporting the dees has bought, it was this moment, this day that has always kept the ledger firmly in the positive. Nice to remember!
  12. My feeling is that this has been Roos intent all along. Roos does not hide his mantra that everyone plays there role and defence first mantra. If you therefore had a query on one of your key personnel playing long term in the back half it makes no sense to develop a back six including him. I would imagine if he signed a contract tomorrow that we would see Frawley immediately returned to his most comfortable position. If he does go Roos has already started the transition to life without him. Really win! Win!
  13. My feeling is that Dunn has to go back. The only time we have looked dangerous coming out of the back half in the past three weeks has been through Dunn's ball use either switching or penetrating through the zone lines. Not even taking into account the significant difference he makes to our kick in's. It's scary that he possibly is our best forward & back ATM. So Howe forward for mine working as a high half forward not as an inside 50 marking target. Think they will play Dawes as it will provide a structure to make Howe more dangerous. Also think Terlich will make way - think Roos will want to send a message that you play to my ideals or make way. Outs: Terlich & JKH Ins: Dawes & Clisby
