Agree on the D line, A’Shawn Robinson was massive bs the run. Massive. 
It was a weakness for us that got turned around as the season went and he and Gaines were the lynch pins. Yes, Miller meant those two could play more run stop and not have to push. But both were great especially across the whole play off run.

 I truly hope we Re-Sign Beckham, Miller also but I don’t think we will be able to afford Miller.

Also reckon the MVP awarded for the season needs to include the most important games for the season - the playoffs

And there is a way to do it instead of just taking the lazy option of separating the seasons

All votes or points could be collated prior to the SB by a panel of 12 hand-picked experts and those 12 can then allocate extra votes (or points) once the SB is completed ... would take 10-15 ,minutes

If that was done then Kupp wins the MVP for the season (in my view) Or perhaps even Stafford (who was very good throughout the playoffs)

Rodgers was a worthy winner in the regular season but again, the playoffs need to be included in order to find the overall winner

It’s always hard. 
The biggest problem is the QB position is the most important. So will always get the nod. But teams plan more for Donald than any other player for us. 
Kupp was insanely good this year and would have been a worthy winner. Kupp was great with Goff, Goff less so without Kupp. Kupp was insane with Stafford, Stafford less so without Kupp. It’s all linked, without all parts neither are great.

Good points but the biggest problem is that they don't count the playoffs (the most important games)

But neither do we with the Brownlow. 
TBH if Henry couldn’t win it last year. No non QB ever will again.

I'm not too fussed if a QB wins it the majority of the time

But you make a good point re the Brownlow so I suppose the same sort of rules do apply.  

However,  I reckon Kupp was the best in the NFL this year!!

The post-season tipping comp has been decided and the winners are DemonDave (and myself)

Well played Dave and thanks to everyone for your participation.  Open to more suggestions but I reckon we've got the points system just about right.  Gives everyone a chance and the backmarkers are never really out of it ...  (cough)

Boom! Back on top baby!!! Triple crown for Kupp, triple crown for Gorgoroth!

You've now won 14 'Virtual' medals ... Michael Phelps like!

It's quite amazing how the years have flown by.  And I believe the thread is the 2nd longest running on the site

So many thirds tho 😬

If OBJ doesn’t get hurt I might have got the margin right in the SB. Ahhhh what ifs… 🤣

Seriously think this is a mistake. He should have stayed retired. I reckon he declines this year.

It's either/or with retirement in my view

Some don't ever want to quit so when that's the case, the mind is right at least

Davante is a big loss but does create a lot of salary cap relief & space ... 1st & 2nd round picks for Adams will probably be used on a couple of WR's anyway (effectively, on way less money)

And apparently, there is loads of college talent in the WR position in the upcoming draft

Still, he won't be easily replaced as the bloke is a star ... now he will be on the end of the Derek Carr passes so we'll see how that goes in that set up.  Reunited from Fresno State

Adam’s turned down more Money from GB to go to Vegas. Blows my mind.

Watson to Browns, 5 yrs 230m 100% guaranteed… still has 22 civil lawsuits against him… ahhhh the Browns make me laugh.

Green Bay were only going to pay him $22Million this year but the Raiders have given him $140Million over 5 years ... which makes him the highest paid WR (ever?)

He'd bought a house there a while back and I'd say the club knew he was going.  Hard to match that kind of money especially when Rodgers is already taking a big slice

Anyway, I'm of the opinion that Rodgers can always find his WR's ... our real issues and weaknesses aren't in that area

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
