Who's in for Jack?

Recommended Posts

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.

Just make sure you don't drink them before 2013,,,, WYL!

*Edit::: WYL, I have a thought, I'll wager you another 6 pack of Beer, if you have another, and double it, If Jack Viney comes in to the side in 2013, Bennell will be out. B)

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

You think so....i have watched at least 3 Geelong games this year on TV, and Varcoe has been Dam Solid in each one....he now feels like he is a senior member of the side.

I want Bennell to get to that level. If that happens he will be a gun.

I want Bennell to go and watch Robin Nahas (cant believe I am using him as someone to emulate!!!!).

Nahas has learnt to use his pace and run, unlike JB. Nahas runs and links all the way from the backline to the forward line, JB does not.

JB is a much more impressive lloking player but as of yet has not shown it enough.

He needs to find more of the ball and the way he does that is by running more.

He is never going to be an in and under (although he needs to continue to go when it is his turn) player so use your strengths and run JB!

bennell is still only just turned 21 guys and comparing him to nahas? nahas is like 23. im a big fan of bennell and i think once he builds his engine up he could be vital for us in the midfield. he is very very quick and has such clean hands and amazing below knees! cmon jamie show em up!

Goal against Footscray last year....?? I am with you mate...he will burn in september in the future.

As I said, get back to me. Unlike you, I don't suffer from your prematurity affliction.

It's above his knees and below his neck I'm concerned about. Apparently so is McGrath from the lions, and others.

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

+1

It's ridiculous to claim Bennell's cards will be marked if he doesn't 'perform' over the next three weeks.

To all the Jamie Bennell defenders.

Glad to see you all like him and think he has a long future ahead.

Time will tell if you are right.

I don,t believe I ever said play well in the next three weeks or you are out.

I believe he has a spot guaranteed for the next three weeks (not many alternatives )

If he plays well I will be happy that your faith has been justified.

I will also be happy that we have a good player.

However at this point I just do not see the player that you guys see.

Only one persons opinion

OK guys JB came on for the second half so started when others had played 60 minutes.

Whats your verdict?

I will lead with my chin!

Played the way I expected.

I had hope for a good performance based on your praise yesterday.

but alas the usually bit part player, I must admit he did put his body on the line a couple of times.

Any takers?

    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
