joeboy

Recommended Posts

N.Jones - tired before injury

Dunn - a solid contribution

Hogan - had little influence

Salem - regularly displayed class

Watts - regularly lost contests

Viney - bad habits returned

Gawn - was not disgraced

Stretch - tried but raw

Cross - disappointingly our best

Newton - plodded and watched

Garland - tried but loose

Michie - just lacks quality

Vince - finishing year poorly

T. McDonald - valiant but careless

O.McDonald - showed some poise

Grimes - impressive when subbed

Garlett - was hardly noticed

Howe - sporadic and gone

Jetta - slow and loose

Spencer - insipid before injury

M.Jones - hopefully last game

Neal-Bullen - out of depth

Next year what about a three word positive player analysis win or lose and start off on the right foot and it might just turn around.

It might not be easy but hey.....

No...much prefer the truth!

Well done again Joeboy, an positively accurate summation of the output of each player.

a bit disappointed in the criticism of Viney the guy is usually at the bottom of a pack shovelling the ball out TOWARDS our goals as best he can without a lot of support and usually under a lot of pressure from opposition players. His attack on the ball and tackling of opposition players is first class, he will get better with time.

Viney was in beast mode for a lot of the day, just didn't have much help.

Depressing day for Jones, I really feel for him.

its not a contract year, obviously... that how to tell when melbourne players have a good season, contract renewal time... go you good time guys, you.

I was sat behind the goals and watching him closely, he just doesn't man up and always plays from behind.

Chris Mayne, is a running machine, that guy just does not stop presenting, I'd make a serious play for him just to set the example for our bunch of slackers.

I think you may have been a bit harsh on Watts. He was fourth for 1%'s and third for tackles in the side. He clearly did his share when he didn't have the ball, and that's one of his big weaknesses. Sadly did bugger all to win contested ball which is his other big weakness, but he did make my pick for play of the day with his one contested win. Brought the ball to ground against multiple opponents, controlled it, u-turned, ran to 50 and kicked a spectacular point.

How can anyone be anything but positive about Vineys game today?

I am flabbergasted that you found a way to be negative on this.

Even Cross, "disappointingly our best". What the hell does that mean? Why disappointingly?

And people question how Roos could call supporters negative...

That would've been a ripping goal, so close. His other effort was a fair kick too!

How may of his handballs missed targets then resulted in goals.

He goes very hard at the contest which is great to see. But his skills need a lot of work.

Not as many as Vince, Garland, Dunn, Cross missed handball targets.

Probably, Disappointingly because at his age and the other players in he should not regularly be our best or top three.

Means others are not lifting and good Ol Crossy is still showing them how it is done.

Be that as it may, when only given three words how about using all three to laud the effort of that player rather than using it as further opportunity to lay in to the rest of the team.

It reveals an inherent negativity.

Re Viney, while he obviously has flaws, his performance was overall very positive. How about "head over ball" or "strong all day" or "so much heart".. I could go on.

Paul would really appreciate this post. Finally looking at the positives!

It's his view. Want it different, do your own or don't read it.

I like it, I don't always agree but I don't go asking him to change.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
