Demonland Player of the Year - Round 15



Recommended Posts


6 Jones, who is far and away our best player, perhaps outside of Clark

5 Sylvia, who only needs a hypnotist to tell him he's playing Richmond every week

4 Blease, who is going to be an absolute jet

3 Nicholson, whose kicking can really let him down

2 Jordie McKenzie, who I hope is going to be okay after his big knock

1 Spencer, who uses his big body better than Jamar does around the ground.

Seriously, how are people putting Martin in their votes? Is it a plot to somehow increase his trade value? We sucked every time he went into the ruck.... To be fair to him, we were awful all day....

Haven't seen the game, but the stats say he was one of our best.

6 Jones

5 Nicho with an unusual 83% DE

4 Dunn

3 Watts even with 3 clangers still had 82%DE and made good decisions

2 Martin

1 Spencer

Sylvia's opponent had 10 more disposals than him; his DE was 52% - just not good enough with his talent!

6.........

5. Jones (The crude agricultural up-country hacks/kicks when he tries for distance are a real blot on his game. Stuff you only see in park footy. )

4. Trengove

3. Sylvia (The absurd attempted kick off the grounds are just stupid; 2 missed, 1 2 cost a goal.)

2. Nicholson

1. McKenzie

Ed: the tiges first goal came after a Sylvia kick off the ground

6. Jones - heart of a lion. Runs & gets the hard ball

5. Sylvia - the class is apparent. Can be damaging. does not stagnate with the footy.

4. McKenzie - like Blundstone boots. Not flashy, but tough, reliable and gets the job done.

3. Dunn - liked his grit, good kicking (long and strong) and was unlucky in several "free kick" incidents.

2. Frawley... sure Riewoldy kicked 1.5 but goal was from a soft free kick and Frawley marked him all day

1. Nicholson ...loved his run, pace and competitive spirit. This kid can play. Maybe a role on the wing and not Half back next week.

What happened to Magner? Injured? Presumably subbed out - 13 DT points.

Subbed out after having less than 5 disposals in 2 and a half quarters and absolutely shanking a set shot for goal.

6- Jones: Not as good as he usually is, but far and away better than anybody else on the team.

5- (Now I'm struggling) Sylvia: Seems to be working harder than he did in the first half of the season.

4- Watts: I'm a huge Watts fan, but his disposal did let him down at times. That being said, he is the person who's hands you want it in when the ball is in our back half. I also loved seeing him go in really hard and thought he was harshly pinged for holding the ball.

3- Spencer: Much better than Martin was in the ruck. A promising performance against a likely AA Ruckman.

2- Howe: Can someone please teach him how to kick?

1- Nicholson: (See Howe)

He often played on Shane "Titch" (178cms) Edwards. He was outmarked 2-3 times by Edwards. Edwards setup a few more goals. Watts turned it over 3-4 times & often went with a 15 metre sideways pass. Dunn was much more effective in his getting the ball outside our defensive 50. Watts kickouts were "agonising". He did 4-5 good marks & competitive efforts today but a back sweeper on a small fwd. Please. Maybe a real test for the No.1 is getting it inside our fwd 50.

footnote: Compare to Deledio. Deledio is quick, dangerous and wins the footy to create and kick goals.

watts was clearly hampered by a leg injury today. was looking to get off for the last 5 minutes of the first half but couldn't because the ball was in our defence so much. he will make mistakes at times, because our players don't work hard enough to get into space, and he has to try and manufacture something. needs to tighten up at times, got led to the ball a bit today, but he definitely wasn't running like normal after half time.

"footnote: Compare to Deledio. Deledio is quick, dangerous and wins the footy to create and kick goals. "

Watts had a bad game. But to compare Deledio to Watts? Deledio is a 10 year player, lifetime member of the club, he's at his peak. Watts is just starting out, don't like the comparison.

6: Jones

5: Sylvia

4: Watts - sorry to you detractors but we (my friends and I- one of whome is a former MFC player) thought he was good.

3: Nicholson

2: Martin

1: Frawley

And a special mention to Spencer.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
