and is soft as butter and squibs contests i.e St Kilda game and Geelong game

He did have seven tackles against Geelong, not such a bad effort.

I'll put your comment down to trolling.

I don't think there is any benefit in taking pot shots at a young bloke who has just been cut from a second club and effectively closing the door on his career & dreams.  He was a draft pick

Oh no!!!! A kid in his first year has a bad game!!! Quick, lets all pot him. Flogs

Fitzpatrick was terrible last week, but great this week. Toumpas was great last week but terrible this week. Demonland's Official Conclusion: Fitzpatrick is great but Toumpas sucks.

Tremgove was tracking beautifully at the end of 2011, his 2nd season.

Averaged over 20 touches, and i think came top 5 in the Bluey despite missing 3 games.

So what happened?

Mark Neeld came in

He was burdened with the captaincy

I dont subscribe to the the theory he has an ongoing injury. You telling me hes been carrying an injury since round 1 , 2012?

Anyway hes had 20+ touches the last three weeks so I think the tide might be slowly turning.

He has always looked slow and lacked explosiveness, even before 2011.

Trade him too soft

it is supporters like you that make me want to rip out my hair and never let you into another Melbourne game again.

This kid is the future of the MFC and one of the greatest and natural kicks i've ever seen in my life. Better than Davey's.

He can be slow at times, but after only just a few games i can already see a star in the making, and no, he is not soft

Tell me one squib who is no longer a squib in the AFL? Bryce Gibbs was a squib when he was drafted, still is. And prime example was Cale Morton. Don't kid yourself, this is ingrained in him

Why dont you go and show him how to be harder because it got you to... oh wait..

Gary Ablett Jnr squibbed a contest very early in his career would you call him a squib now?

Soft is not going, reckless courage is Selwood and jones etc.

Some one going but fearing contact, but still going is not soft, yes he ducks his head a little, but he still bloody went and did what was required.

Sorry wrong tread I. Thought I was writing on the morton tread, but please can we wait until he plays four seasons before calling him.a future star, not one person on this site can say that morton was not going to be a future star after his first two seasons everyone is soft at times.

Look forward to seeing Jimmy play next year after another pre season, under a new coach and further away from his hip operation.

Under extremely difficult conditions and circumstances he played his best game for us. That tells me a lot about him.

He will be a good player for us.

I'm shaking my head at these comments of people calling him soft. He went in hard many times vs Geelong and he showed some very good inside work which is totally against what he is known for. There is nothing about him that reminds me of Cale Morton.

He's showed some real confidence in the last few games, and I expect that confidence to grow.

His biggest issue was he didn't get the pace of AFL right away, not an uncommon issue and he is finally getting that and showing us why the club has considered him to be a better prospect than some really good players ( stringer, vlastian, wines, mcrae, menzel )

Where did this 'soft' tag come from? I've seen him put his body on the live several times, don't understand the fascination from people who want 1st year kids to end up with career threatening injuries because they recklessly throw their under matired bodies around

Toumpas is not soft. In the last few games he's put his body on the line several times and showed this. He's starting to get used to the speed of the game at AFL level now and is showing the talents that had him so highly rated. He'll be a fine player for us. people need to quit their bitching about a first year kid with less than 10 games to his name!

For the record, Cale Morton's first season was one of the best by a Demon in my lifetime. He racked up 30 touches and 3 goals against Geelong at their peak. Noone else on our list has done the same. Yes he didn't turn out the way we hoped, but what's the point of bagging him when he isn't at the club anymore and has no bearing on our future?

Great Call... not that I'm the biggest fan and I also think Jimmy will be a far better player, but who else can recall Kade Simpsons first 10 games, I'm pretty sure he didn't touch it in his first 3 games (literally).

Jimmy has taken some time to to pick up the game, but you can just see the poise and class starting to shine through. He is not a hard-ball winning mid, but he does not shirk at the contest that's for sure...I think a lot need to take breath. Yeah Ollie Wines would have been great for us, but Jimmy will be great also.

He is soft, take the rose coloured glasses off

Bloody soft. Alot softer than you sitting behind your computer. This soft kid was so weak that he was seniors football at the age of 16. What a bloody [censored] putting his teenage body up against men!! Now at 18 backing into a pack against the biggest bodies in the comp, knowing us with no voice from his teammates he lowered his head slightly.. Well holy [censored]. Josh hunt weighs 100 kilos and is built like a brick out house and he did a deplorable head drop last year. A three time premiership player.

I love posters who came out with lines like this because it allows me from now on to ignore every post you make. Thank you. Hope your courage behind your desk is in top form also..

might regret these comments in five years time if he becomes as good as most of us think he will.

Where did I say he wasnt a good footballer or didnt have the capabilities to be a good footballer? I'm just stating that he is soft

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
