Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

I have been wanting to do this for a few weeks now after not wanting to do this last year - it would be even more depressing...

But I want people to see how sick this list is when compared to a middling AFL team like Collingwood/GC/Adelaide and not just those teams around us at the bottom - so 'AFL Calibre' amounts to 'AFL average.' This comes into play especially for the Rotation Mid and the Not Good Enough groups that I am basing on whether they would get a game in a middling team like those above.

I have split the list into 6 groups - the first three of which are AFL Calibre and the last three not there yet, most likely won't be there, and 'not enough info.'

The AFL is 'midfielders league' and so the AFL Calibre groups are:

ELITE MID - N Jones

ROTATION MID - Viney, Tyson, Cross, Vince, M Jones

POSITIONAL ROLE PLAYER - Watts, Dawes, Frawley, Dunn, Garland, Pedersen, McDonald, Grimes, Howe, Jamar, Jetta

The next groups are:

POTENTIAL AFL CALIBRE - Hogan, Salem, Trengove, Kent, JKH, Gawn, Spencer

NOT GOOD ENOUGH - Byrnes, Clark, McKenzie, Blease, Strauss, Nicholson, Evans, Tapscott, Terlich, Fitzpatrick, Bail

MORE INFO REQUIRED - Toumpas, Clisby, Michie, Riley, Hunt, Barry, Harmes, King, Georgiou, Westrupp

Analysis

We don't have enough AFL Calibre players to compete with middling teams but even more disturbing is the lack of midfield depth that struggles to compete against these middling teams.

I umm and ahhed over a few of them and you can argue around the edges with Bail, Trengove, and McKenzie but the premise is sound; with only 17 AFL Calibre players and only 7 looking destined to join them in the next few years our list is not in a great shape.

But there is little wonder Roos' ceiling of improvement has been hit at this low point with only 17 AFL Calibre players (and some of them out of form) to work with.

He is going to need a couple more summers like the last one and his continued work with the list - since Roos took over he has added 6 AFL Calibre players through recruitment and development.

I like the premise RPFC. Malthouse and Clarkson have both said that you need 30 AFL Quality (Calibre in your terminology) players to be a realistic top 4 chance. We clearly have a way to go.

You've mentioned the middling teams. Have you done the analysis on where their lists sit? This will save me doing it over lunch and adding to the discussion for debate! An analysis of the top teams would no doubt have 30-odd in the AFL Calibre and few in the Not Good Enough Category, with most of the 'not there yets' in the Potential or More info (i.e. first year players / rookies) lists.

Collingwood:

ELITE MID: Pendlebury, Beams

ROTATIONAL MID: Swan, Sidebottom, Ball, J Thomas, Macaffer, Blair, Young

POSTIONAL ROLE PLAYERS: Grundy, Maxwell, Goldsack, Lumumba, Witts, Brown, White, Elliott, Reid, Williams, Cloke, Toovey, Langdon, Frost,

---

POTENTIAL: Fasolo, Dwyer, Kennedy, Adams, Keeffe, Sinclair, Seedsman

NOT GOOD ENOUGH: Clarke, Lynch, Armstrong, Karnezis

MORE INFO REQ: Broomhead, Ramsay, Scharenberg, Freeman, Oxley, Martin, Yagmoor, Gault, Mooney

So the wash up is 23 AFL Calibre Players, including 2 of the top 20 and another couple in the top 50.

Only 4 players that I'm calling not good enough, plus a healthy list of Potential Players and 2 top-10 picks in the "More Info Required" list.

I'll tackle Hawthorn a bit later.

Is it your opinion that the players are not AFL Calbre players, and what is your criteria for reaching this conclusion, number of games played, Brownlow votes, Demonland opinion, haircut? Byrnes has 2 premiership medals in his drawer at home, Clark has retired (just making up numbers), Fitzpatrick was being praised from the mountaintops at the end of last season on Demonland

Can we have a bit more meat?

Maybe a "no longer good enough" category for Byrnes & Clark would suit you better. Mario Bortolotto has two premiership medals at home as well ! Doesn't mean he's currently "good enough". Byrnes is obviously past his peak.

Hawthorn:

ELITE MID: Mitchell, Hodge,

ROTATIONAL MID: Lewis, Burgoyne, Hill, Sewell, Smith, Puopolo, Rioli,

POSITIONAL ROLE PLAYER: Roughead, Suckling, Gibson, McEvoy, Duryea, Whitecross, Cheney, Birchall, Lake, Gunston, Breust, Stratton, Schoenmakers, Ceglar, Shiels, Spangher,

---

POTENTIAL AFL CALIBRE: Langford, Litherland, Simpkin, Hartung,

NOT GOOD ENOUGH: Hale (slightly controversial - but I believe the end is coming quick for him), Anderson, Garlett,

NOT ENOUGH INFO: O'Brien, Lowden, Kelly, Grimley, Hallanhan, Woodward, Sicily, Brand, Ross, Wanganeen, Willsmore, Webster, Heatherley, Tatupu

That's 26 AFL CALIBRE, and you'd be pretty confident in declaring the 4 potentials as the same. Only 3 Not Good Enoughs, but I'd suspect a few of the more info required players won't even get a chance to show their stuff at AFL level.

How many games would our firsts team win in the VFL?

Our firsts team would obviously be dominant at VFL level, simply because the gap is huge and growing.

I think you've approached this pretty well 'rp', might have a couple in different columns but the wash up is pretty right.

The middling teams you mentioned are all on the way up as well and it points to the need for further assistance if we are to be competitive in the short to medium term. If the AFL is serious about levelling up the competition then we would need at least 2 PP's this season, one tied to our position and another end of first round. We could then look at seriously trading in some talent without effecting the its balance and need to bring in future stars.

Pretty close to what I think RPFC.

My only criticism would be that you have been a little generous to M Jones

His quickness and boldness just outweigh his skill issues, but I can understand the view that he is not good enough. I think that Mid Rotation was the group that fits him the best.

Thought long and hard about him too 'old dee', but he would probably be a decent depth player at one of the good clubs. He does work hard, get a bit of the ball and has a bit of pace. Trouble is with us he is just about a walk up start rather than depth.

A bit of a 50/50.

Clark is retired and Byrnes about to be retired - for the prurposes of not having another group I put them there.

As for Fitzpatrick - I was never 'praising him from the mountain tops' and when some on here were saying he is better than Dawes my eyes were rolling and I was negatively judging their football knowledge.

And the meat is the thread - the discussion - it's not meant to be in one post.

Who do you disagree with?

You need to read this properly 'Sat'...neither Roughead nor Birchall are elite mids. Roughead could be argued as a rotational mid.

So where would you put them?

Potential, not good enough or not enough info?

Im not here to argue the positions, because its a good perspective of where the club is at. but regarding the whether or not roughhead or birchall are role players, they still contribute to hawthorns total number of afl calibre players, so it doesn't really matter what they're categorised as.

I think you are overating Nathan Jones calling him an "Elite" mid! Very good yes, elite not yet!

Just my view!

I wouldn't call Jones an elite midfielder. If he were elite, we'd win more of the ball out of the middle.

Dangerfield is an elite midfielder.

But it does if you have mixed categories, does this mean that players who are not positional role players, or mid rotation or elite, are necessarily not AFL calibre.......I would give you a perfect example, if we all saw Zac Dawson for the first time and knew nothing about him, most would be horrified, he is slow, can't kick, etc etc so most would say not AFL calibre but I bet Ross Lyon would disagree.........it is all relative, if you are on an AFL list you are an AFL calibre player.....another let's delist these spuds topic in another guise.....ho hum

at this stage MJ looks a bit of this & a bit of that... needs to pull himself up out of the blancmange. I sense he has it BUT. can he lift.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
