Goldfinger is on Ch 9 right now A key baddie is [censored] Galore. Appropriate in my book for this thread because JW has played like a [censored] for most of his career.

Just end it Roos.

I am whatever you like to label it ET. Just horribly disheartened at the lack of sustained effort from a guy who could do great stuff, but chooses not to.

Maybe he is what he is and supporter expectation is/was too much.

You see it how you do, and that's ok with me. I see it as not a matter of expectation being over done (at least in my case), but as potential not being given a chance by a lack of willpower / courage / determination.

Just my take on it, but I view the sum total of the career so far as a [censored] galore effort.

Just imagine if Champion Data recorded stats for "shirking the contest."

:unsure:

Thank Christ he's McCartney's pet project, alongside Toumpas.

All true - but Natanui would have retreated back to his native WA within 4 years of being drafted - guaranteed.

At least Wattsy stuck by us and signed a long contract during the height of our incompetence.

Watts was off to Carlton, once Roos was announced he signed on. Watts along with others still haven't worked that it's up to them to perform on the field. The coach can only do so much.

* toddy as list manager chose toumpas, instead of stringer or wines.

* sacking Neeld early, I'm suggesting that if JW was looking at moving, we would have got some compensation. with NC taking the coacjhing reigns before the end of season, then with whispers of Roosy coming in, things must have changed with watts.

should hav let Neeld go till seasons end.. he would have cleaned out the list, even more.

improved players during the time of Neeld : Nathan Jones, Dunn, Grimes, Jamar,

# the warraiors of the outer, all those supporters who have left this once grand club over the past 30 odd years. left out in the cold. gone to new warmer homes within the AFL family.

Do yourself a favour and wat Nic Nat tonight. His 2nd efforts and pressure has been huge! He pressures and tackles hard.

These traits i have never seen Jack Watts do.

I looked at Nik Nat's so called 'beauty' tonight against a very weak St kilda side.. He had 16 possessions-nothing sensational. 3 goals including a lucky one off the ground, 4 tackles - nothing to write home about(JW had 7 last week), ONE mark , one mark for a bloke his size! (Jack had 8). He attracts attention because of his hair style and his leaping ability. Let's see how he goes against the Hawks next week.

Jack's been fine/improving in the second half of the year, and has started to look like a different player. Another pre-season with McCartney and Goodwin and who knows. He isn't the Nick Riewoldt Mark 2 that we'd hoped for, but he's handy with ball in hand - which is more can be said for a lot of our players. I'd take Watts over Howe or Grimes any day of the week.

If he's part of a mega-trade, fine, but hard to see that trading him alone would gain us anything much.

He was omitted. It says it in big letters right after his name on the team sheet.

Not was not rested, not managed, and is not sick. He was dropped.

If he was a bad as you like to emphasise, why is he the first named emergency? I still think that he will play as a last minute substitution for Jones (and ultimately play a big part in our win today)!

You forgot, he's playing in a side sitting 2nd on the ladder. Means he won't get anywhere near the same level of criticism for his performances. In a winning side everyone's contributing, in a losing side its who can we blame.

Didn't obviously see the extreme pressure acts and 2nd efforts he put on? Like i said i have never seen Jack hit the contest hard as what Nic Nac does.

cannot believe some are still suggesting they would still take Jack over Nic Nac. Typical delusional Melbourne supporters.

Jack Has been a major disappointment in his career. Some need to accept that he is just a good ordinary player and thats it. We have tried jack in every position on the ground and to this day we are still asking questions in whats his best actual position because he clearly can't Perform a simple his role probably to justify that he can settle in the one position for the time being.

Watch him on game days and he stands and points to other players when during games he himself can't Perform properly and puts in [censored] weak efforts. Could only imagine the younger players would be shaking their head at him.

It never ceases to amaze me that some of you blokes focus so much on Watts. There are plenty of other players performing below expectations or hopes, but with the recent exception of Toumpas no one looks at their draft and says their NikNat equivalent would have been so much better.

CBD im not sure being named as "emergency" at the MFC is something i would br crowing about right now. I've seen the likes of Bail/N Jones and many other NQRs on there as well over the last few years.

I hope we win today but my head says GWS by 80 plus. I might need to have some of whatever you"re having for breakfast

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    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
