The Jake Lovett Thread



Recommended Posts

Now didn't Healy have a son that was meant to be "the best of the lot" according to Schwarz..?

No?

I recall hearing that somewhere, but I've no idea of the kid's age.

I remember hearing the same from someone else, seems to have disappeared off the radar.

Maybe not such a bad thing if he is a F/S chance.

Brett Lovett - one of my all time favourites and very under- rated. Hope his son has inherited his good decision making, coolness under pressure and ability to find space. Didn't he come to the Dees from the Hawks?

My favourite demon ever (apologies to Robbie)

Interesting to see Peninsula turning out some decent players. First Lachie Whitfield and now Lovett. I think the last AFL player they had was Stewie Lowe.

Did Nathan Jones go to Peninsula? David Hille was also definitely a Peninsula boy.

awesome.

would love to build a father-son dynasty like the cats.

That would be good, but a premiership dynasty, with or without F/S, would be far better

if hes anything like his old man...

one of the most underrated players of all time, just a smooth mover and much like Robert Harvey he was almost untackle-able.

If my memory serves me correctly Brett may have even finished top 4 in the Brownlow one season?

Absolute gun.

One of my all time favorites - Brett was as slow as treacle - but was courageous, strong overhead for his size, great decision maker and his number one feature - never ever lost his feet.

I’m sure Melbourne would have had people watching Jake for a while now. Apparently did quite well playing school footy for Peninsula and has looked relatively comfortable in his few TAC appearances for Dandenong.

Was good for the Stingrays last weekend (19 touches off the bench) and looks very solid in the contest. Neat left foot kick (8 of 9 kicks were effective). Followed up the contests well too. Looks a very good inside mid prospect at this stage, and he’ll have a chance to help Dandenong into another final on Saturday.

Yep, Brett was slow like Sam Mitchell is slow. One of the best readers and users of the ball I've ever season. The people that matter have a very high opinion of Jake's future.

anyone remember the 1994 final against and Carlton when we shocked everyone and won. from memory Brett played on Greg Williams in the centre and was BOG. very skilful footballer by hand and foot. often played on bigger guys down back as he was so good one on one.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
