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."

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

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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

    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

    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
