Jack Watts

Recommended Posts

Could not agree more, it has become so tiresome. We know his strengths and his faults. He plays a good game and the Watts support crew come out in force, reminding others of their pro Watts opinions. He plays a bad game and the Watts haters are back louder than ever questioning his intestinal fortitude and whatever else. Lets be satisfied in watching his improvement and recognize that this young man has shown character and fortitude in dealing with the criticisms, scrutiny and public pressure. I thinks its a remarkable that he is still in the game, still wants to play for the MFC, and has been able to keep smiling throughout.

thats what I grew into, in my younger travels; when friends start to associate with drugs, & then pushes come into the group & they steal your jumper from under your nose, & you catch them wearing it 2 weeks later... what is a man to do but embarrass them, & fight them to get it back from them.

when they tell you your dead, they'll shoot you, they're s only one response appropriate to them; do not miss !

what are you talking about cb

Michael Long is high character. was a catalyst to winning Premierships & is loved by kids.

Roger Merrett was popular amongst the kids. & was a multi Premiership player, not just well liked.

Dermie is a multi Premiership winning player, & has huge character,

Long was a dog of a player. Still have not forgiven him for the cowardly hit on Troy Simmonds and for a hit behind play on Ricky Jackson out at Windy Hill.

I'm not sure what just happened...

some people trying to take the high ground; now that JW's appearing like he may become, a player just yet...... after the pain we've all been through, since just before he was recruited...

some SA's want to try to be the holier than thows, & trying to paint others as if they didn't want JW to succeed.

more soft trash from the north. 'see I told you so', 'we're the king of the castle'... & all that childish twaddle. from those who Dare Not.

He's been a diabolical dud. To rate him "incredibly highly" is utterly nonsensical.

Thankfully, it looks like he'll reach his potential, which is so far from his draft selection it's not funny. Nonetheless, we're grateful for small mercies.

He's a mistake. But he's a mistake that's becoming a valuable entity as we move forward.

Booooo!

Confidence and self-belief are key to him and he's slowly starting to believe in himself.

At the champs he knew he was good.

He needs to know that at this level and he'll break the shackles.

McCartney is doing an outstanding job, I'm looking forward to what will unfold in the coming weeks.

Not to mention I never sit at the footy. I've been standing on the members steps for 30 years.

Waiting for them to grant you admission? ;-)

Close thread.

We're done here.

We're not done here. We'll continue to laud Jack's improvement or comment on his poor performances. That's the way it goes on a forum.

Fingers crossed he keeps up the good form.

Part of me thinks Demonland wants to praise Jack Watts because we appear to have a new whipping boy in Chris Dawes.

Maybe there should be some sort of ceremony for handover of whipping boy status.

Any ideas BBO?

I think Jack realized his career was on the line when he dropped himself to the Reserves & is now aware that his attitude towards the team and his game needed adjustment.

He always had the talent

I get that - I was being facetious. I just wanted to have a break from the enigma that is JW.

I agree on your second point.

I am sorry to have a go at Watts, but his performance today was quite simply terrible, how many turnovers did he do....hard to believe

First quarter kicks it into the man on the mark from a kick in...it's been a long time since I have seen that happen, probably under 10's and second or third term when he had it on the members side just outside the 50 with Hogan streaming forward with a 10 gap on his opponent and Watts ignores him and kicks it straight to a north melbourne player....it's a [censored] joke

If you read carefully it is said that a large number of players were ill - too many to leave them out,

Given Jack's major turn around recently, and the (apparent - I haven't yet been able to see the game) poor / insipid performance of him, and as I understand such regular contributors as Nathan Jenes and Bernie, maybe give some consideration that some were not physically up to playing but had to.

To anyone who has ever had flu or flu-like viruses, would you feel like or indeed be able to walk let alone run around on a footy field for 2 hours at peak performance level?

I know someone who knows the Watts family. I was with him at the game with yesterday and it was touch and go whether Jack would play. He was being assessed right through till game time. However I was also told it was more a migraine than the flu for him.

So that's his excuse for kicking it into the man on the mark....bizarre.

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
