HI WYL Bennell was already in mate!

And not sure I was into bashing.

Just don't like his contribution so far.

You want to check the site again!

Sure you were Bashing....You want him top line in 3 weeks...Varcoe was trash until last year.

It is a matter of opinion what constutues "bashing",

However if I give my opinion that I do not believe Bennell has what it takes, and you believe it is "bashing", well so be it.

As I said before it is only my opinion Right or wrong.

Thank you Master.

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 Rad Russian is back.

Some interesting times ahead.

I believe Robbie Campbell also played a half in the Casey Reserves last week. Would be good if he could step up to the plate sooner rather than later...

You're bashing.

And four goals against Port last year not enough for you to see the kid has obvious talent to burn?

Thanks BB I knew someone would find the game I missed.

Was on a cruise at the time.

Yes I know it is a tough life but someone has to do it.

Now back to Bennell so that I do not "bash" him again what would you say constitutes a "good " game for him tomorrow?

Not being a smart arse I would just like to know your thoughts.

Yes it is a matter of opinion, and i am allowed to think yours is way out of line.

Jamie Bennell will be a very good player, i will wage a six pack on it.

And if you continue to "Bash" him on here i will continue to pull you up.

As an old timer you should have more wisdom, a later bloomer is usually by far the better player.

Darren Cuthbertson was a legend for 2 weeks in 1991.....I would hope Bennell is remembered in terms of years rather than days.

Carry on.

HaHaHa!! After all that Bennell Bashing, Jetta is in! :lol:

Golden stuff Guys, you made me laugh during a rubbish Friday work day....Thanks.

Let's hope Jetta plays a game like he did in Darwin last year....WE NEED YOU NEV.

Bennell Bashing,,,? what a good Idea. I wonder if Beamer has invited him away to his boxing camps? He needs to do some ring work, to get his self belief Up.

I like the potential of Bennell, with his running game. But the trouble is It's always running awayfrom. Not running Into the contested ball situation. you wouldn't exppect him to do this all the time as he can be so damaging when he has the ball, But he Must learn to win his share of contested ball as well, to be a Team Player.

Old Dee isn't far off the money, perhaps deciding his whole career in the next 3 weeks is a little off.

But people on here have massively overrated Bennell so far, he has shown glimpses of talent amongst huge chunks of going missing, spattered with glimpses of not going when he should.

After a few weeks of terribly soft team efforts coming to ahead against WC, Bennell was one of the 3 'softer' blokes dropped. Good on him for going to Casey and playing well, but he is lucky we copped these injuries, and this is indeed an important time for him to show something, and grow from being dropped.

The Varcoe comparison is an apt one, I said the same thing last year, I hope Bennell can improve like Varcoe did.

I hope it doesn't as well, having seen him at Casey a couple of times I think he is some ways off AFL standard yet.

I think a game this early might set him back a bit.

However, no Martin and he is probably in for better or worse.

Our team is young O.D. Jamie has plenty of time, But Tomorrow would be a great start, our list is now being really tested as our top 2 draft picks are out along with Jordie & Frank Grimes.

Jamie will be raring to go i predict ... tomorrow we really need our captain working overtime. I hope he relishes the opportunity.

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.

Don't think it is fair to say to Bennell "3 weeks or that's it."

And Dunn did nothing in his first three years. I would argue he has played half a season of good footy and half a season of decent footy.

He's going to find it difficult to keep his place when everyone is fit, but that isn't because he isn't developing, it is because of our talent.

Bennell will be a very good player. Please bookmark my call and feel free to bag me in a few years if I'm wrong. He can have moments of sheer class. Yes they are few and far between at the moment but younger players are clearly more inconsistent. He probably has as big an upside as any of our youngsters and I for one, feel more excited about this guy than most. He'll be good, very good.

Saying he'll improve or become a very good player is one thing, predicting he'll burn in september is as stupid as saying the next 3 weeks will decide his career.

Aaron Davey is a very good player, hasn't got a kick in September, Leon Davis has had one exceptional season and then didn't get a touch in September.

Bennell is softer than both, and hasn't shown anything near what either of those 2 showed in their first 10 games...

Looking forward to seeing the indigenous five (Davey, Jurrah, Wonna, Jetta, Benell) all out there together tomorrow.

Correct me if I'm wrong but this would be the first time all 5 have been in the senior side together, yeah?

Could make for some really exciting footy.

Reason for edit: Just realised there was a thread for this already... exciting nonetheless.

Hey i put a six pack on it so i reckon he will be a gun....2 years ago did you predict anything of Varcoe?? personally i just thought his shoulders would fall off & he would just retire.

The Brothers take longer to mature.Bennell is not big, but is fast with skills...if you think that means he is soft as butter go for your life. Bennell is not built like Lethal Leigh.

Ah, you've had it hard.

I'd like to see lots of chasing, forward pressure and see him make use of his exceptional pace. Just needs to play his role tomorrow.

Varcoe hasn't been that good this year IMO. He's building slowly though.

I hear what your saying but alan johnson he is not. Johno was hard on himself and would will himself to go where angels like Bennell fear to tread.

Bennell will be a very good player, but zIf we don't make him learn to "Go", then he''s shown too many times consistently over a 3 Year period now, that he won't. Thats why he's now being dropped, because the selectors are getting impatient with Him,,, and Morton.. We have other players Now demanding those spots in the side.

Over to You,,,, Jamie.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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

    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.

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.
