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.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
