Morton or Toumpas

Recommended Posts

Should we wait 100 like with Watts? Or 150 like with Sylvia? Because even they showed more in their first 20 games then Toumpas has.

why don't you waste your time & take out your anger by bagging cCameron & bPrenderghast, instead of a young kid who is struggling at this point.

have a go at a 24 yr old, not a boy in a mans game, who has just ticked over 21... he has 18 months in my book to look like an AFL player.

He will never be ready

Timid.

WYL i was as timid as any rtimid kid was ever, it was knocked into me by bigger, meaner, & older individuals who were just cowards & another who just wasn't interested.

but I had one thing inside, which I hadn't recognized at that time. it got me thru & helped me grow up eventually, without any family support of note. it kept me alive. & gave me a chance. it gave me resistance & durability.

This is just a sad sad thread.

Morton or Toumpas. FMD.

Stop drinking and posting or at least i hope that's the reason for starting such a pathetic thread. I actually feel pity for you.

Stop embarrassing yourself.

i am fine. I just don't see the point in having faith in a kid who aint going to make it

You do realize that after 10 seasons we are still putrid on field

10 consecutive seasons.

I do. But I don't see the need for a Morton or Toumpas thread.

It's the last I'll post and view the thread SWYL. Reading what you guys are posting is plain sad.

We're all angry and [censored] off but a thread like this isn't the answer.

You've posted in excess of 24k times and this is where you're at?

I blocked Olisik a long time ago for good reason it would seem.

Round 22 2013 agaisnt adelaide i remember thinking that toumpas could be something

Even last week the way he applyed himself defensively when compared to his teammates was promising

He has shown glimpses

Toumpas is truckloads better than soft[censored] Morton, you've got rocks in your head if think otherwise!!

Would like to see him stay in and play vs the Doggies. He and Stretch really got thrown to the wolves the last 2 weeks vs two powerhouse teams chock full of big bodied experienced players

Terrible effort by the selectors

I think it's pretty much a gven that any thread in which SIR WYL's posts take up about a quarter of the discussion is not worth reading.

I'd much prefer Toumpas over Morton. Why? Because he's on our list. You support players who are on your list. That's your job as a Melbourne supporter.

Im sorry, but did people actually watch the game yesterday? And dont give me nonsense about his 'defensive pressure'.

The kid is scared of the ball, the contest, whatever you want to call it. If it comes into his possesion or even worse, when he has it, he immediately gets rid of it at any cost. Watch his eyes/head dart around.

Has rarely taken the game on. Hasnt got great speed. Isnt a great kick.

So what is left for him? This isnt an AFL standard player.

Hips or no hips, he has had time to show something and hasnt.

Its a bust. Its time we move on.

So you want to compare a 20yr playing his second yr to a late 20s who played for 7-8 seasons...

Judge Toumpas on his merits ..

At least Morton showed some promise early and played some good games in his first couple of seasons... I've always been a toumpas fan but I can't defend him any longer, just don't think he'll make it. Not once have I watched a game and thought "gees toumpas was impressive today"

Also gets brushed off in the tackles very easily guys. I'm starting to think he's too nice and won't ever have the grunt for it, similar to Watts, but with ought showing anything elite. Such a shame.

This isn't "glass half empty" stuff, it's just stating facts. Toumpas is yet to display any AFL-worthy traits.

If this changes, praise the Lord (or whomever).

We just have not been able to pick some kids who are competition dominators despite our early picks (although Hogan may be the start). No point in bagging those who were picked - we picked them so we wear them. If you look at the top teams and go back in the drafts you we see they had a couple of stellar years with picks (even crappy late picks) which set them up for future success. If for example Petracca, Brayshaw ,Stretch, ANB and vanders become stars................

And then when your team is already well on the way and you 'tin' a Selwood or Rioli it does not get much better. And on top of that you use not so good draft picks to pick up guns like Kennedy and Richards and others...............

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
