Who's in for Jack?

Recommended Posts

Jetta or Joel Mac for Jack? I'm thinking either would be a risk, because of their hard tackling... :P

MacDonald for mine, he was named in Casey's best last week where as Jetta wasn't and he's also more of a like for like replacement for Grimes' role, where as Bennell (already in the team) can be used anywhere with Maric & Wonna potentially getting more of a run on the ball in at different stages through rotation.

Jetta for mine. We need another stoppage player. Others can cover the half back role.

MacDonald, we need more backs this week. Grimes gone, and I would assume Bartram running with Harvey as per usual.

Jetta for his work in & around stoppages.

No question.

Good opportunity for Jetta to stamp his name in the midfield, he looks good at Casey so hopefully he can be more consistent for the Dee's. Bennell sub hopefully....

I doubt it or they would have named Gawn as an emergency last night.

All it means IMO is that they needed to name another emergency and it's good encouragement for Gawn to be named.

This bit is certainly right.

I hope Martin and Juice can stand up as it would be unfair to throw Gawn in when he really has just gone from second ruck with plenty of rest to taking on the no1 ruck duties in Casey seconds.

A senior player would be given continuity after a major injury (e.g Petterd look very rusty in early games this year) so given he is just starting his first full season let him have plenty of time trying to handly just getting the tank to be a number 1 ruck.

it will be very interesting to track his progress now Spencer is out.

I felt we would have been better equipped for a Jamar injury about mid year so timing is not great.

Guys I struggle with Bennell however he can play forward or back so I suppose that gives us something.

He has had a number of games now and IMO needs to show more if he is to get a regular spot in the 22.

He has IMO three weeks to show he is more than a bit player.

In three weeks time we will have Trengove back and hopefully Mckenzie with Scully shortly after that.

If he has not shown significant improvement then we should up grade one of the rookies and give them a chance.

So I will try not to complain about him for three weeks.

Some players are going to have to step up massively over the next 4-6 weeks while we slowly get some of our team back. Big opportunity for the likes of Jetta and Bennell who have both been thereabouts in our best 25, also a big load for Stef to bare until the Red Russian is back.

Some interesting times ahead.

3 weeks to render judgement as a player in 2011?

His career?

Jeez...

We have given Bate and Dunn 7 years. With the more celebrated latter having a most average career.

I am willing to give the talented kids time. They will need it, and we will be rewarded for our patience.

Petterd looked rusty early?

Was sub in one and reasonable in the other before being dominant last week. They are his only appearances in 2011.

I am glad you see things I don't.

My comment is that he has 3 weeks where it is doubtfull we have anyone to take his place.

After that we hopefully will have a number of players pushing for a spot.

On past and current form would you play him in preference to Trengove, Mckenzie or Scully?

Add in Blease and Strauss maybe in a few weeks time.

I look forward to seeing something.

I have never seen him play a game where I would put him in the top 10 of our players.

Bate and Dunn had plenty of games in the earlier years where they were inside the top 10.

Just does not do anything for me.

Happy to be wrong.

I live for the day "satyricon".

My memory is that Varcoe had the odd good game.

I have never seen Bennell play above average.

Now I have not seen every game he has played so I may have missed his "good" game.

It is only my opinion, right or wrong.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
