We Should Have Taken Freeman



Recommended Posts

Freeman is another Sam Blease.

Salem is alot more consistent and more of a precision player.. personally we already have a Blease, let's develop him into the amazing player he could actually be.

Although it would have been fantastic to have Freeman also and try to turn him into a Dangerfield type of player, Salem is a better fit.

Apparently Hunt could be anything and he's quick, maybe we have a gem in him

Ridiculous call and I'm SO sick of people picking out one factor about a player and then assuming they must be terrible at everything else.

Hunt is skilled but skinny, does that make him another Cale Morton?

I understand the point you're making and I agree with you as far as it goes.

But the main issue is whether we are able to turn Tyson, Salem & Hunt into serious contributors on the field. From now on, it really doesn't matter whether Kelly and Crouch might have been better or not.

We need to focus on making the best out of what we've got. As I'm sure the club is doing already.

Agree

I read somewhere that Freeman loved the hard stuff and is a bit of a clearance machine.

Yet to see Sammy do much other than put the blinkers on, tuck the pill under his arm and run. I love it when he does this however he needs to do it more than twice a week.

I was hoping we would have gotten Freeman but that was based on no knowledge of either player other than reading a couple profiles, watching 2 mins of videos on each and reading some stats. Probably similar to most here.

Still, I have faith that what we did we will out fine, in time

They are nothing alike.

they absolutely are. The reason why they were and are both such high draft picks are because of their explosivety.

Without that, neither would have been first round..

Freeman has poor ball use, struggles with consistency. Sounds alot like Blease to me.

Although Freeman enjoys more of the hard stuff and Blease not as much, they share more similarities that differences.

Freeman has endurance. Blease has none.

Freeman is inside and outside. Blease is exclusively outside.

Blease kicks well off both sides. Freeman doesn't.

The only similarities they have us that they are quick and they play football.

No mine are higher.

rpfc: I expect to win 8 games.

wyl: Well I expect to make finals.

rpfc: [scoff] I expect a top 4 finish next year.

wyl: That's nothing! I expect to see Roos during GF parade!

rpfc: Expecting a loss then hey!? I expect to see Roos at Melbourne Park after the game with the cup!

wyl: Looking small?! I expect to see Roos at the Oscars with the cup running his impressive naked rig up and down the aisles!

rpfc: I could think bigger with my head in a thimble! Roos WINS an Oscar FOR running his impressive naked rig up and down the aisles and then wards off an invasion from a rogue Asgardian fleet with help from a fire-breathing Jack Watts, an invisible Jesse Hogan, and Jack Trengove whose power seems to be time manangement!

Now that is a strange reply.

When did i mention September....You are just stretching the mark rpfc

But then you did believe Tom's lies for 6 months.

You are too nice...AFL is brutal..

We should expect a flag.

You are too nice, a soft touch.

Expect more.

    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
