Leadership Group 2016

Interesting selections. 

I'm surprised to see Garland still in there, but it shows how much he does behind the scenes I suppose. 

Massive rap for Gawn to be in there, he has taken huge strides this year (figuratively).

Interesting our Vice captain from last year Lynden Dunn has been left out?

I would have thought he'd be worthy of a place ahead of Garland, especially considering he's VC (presumably for a reason).

From Club Twittter:

Roos: We need a strong leadership group but we also need strong leaders in the team who aren't in that group.Leadership Group

Roos: These six men lead the way in terms of how we want to be as a club.

Captain: Jones

LG: Colin Garland, Max Gawn, Tom McDonald, Bernie Vince and Jack Viney.

Out: Cross, Grimes, Dawes, Lumumba, Dunn

WOW!  Glad to see my smokey tip (Big Maxy) got in.

Nice balance of experience and Youth - 3 of each!. 

For mine we didn't get the on-field leadership when needed from the players that were in the LG.

Very happy with this team.  Very well deserved by the new guys. And great to see Garland back in!!

This is a major overhaul.  Only the Captain kept his spot.  Quite a message by the club.  I think it took some courage for the club to do this so cudos to them for that.

Pretty sure VC is Vince given he was in that position in the team photo and on stage earlier

There will be no VC this year. That's our leadership group as it is.

Any work done behind the scenes is appreciated but right now we need on field leaders, time to deliver.

Grimes is another omission.

With regards to your comment "For mine....when needed...."

Your referring to the players omitted?

Clearly he is an on field leader too. Wouldn't be picked otherwise. 

No arguments from me, great selections all round!

Grimes is borderline best 22, no point in him being in the leadership group if he's never on the park.

We prefer to call ourselves Garland detractors. And I'm mildly disappointed rather than livid.

I wouldn't say clearly, to me Dawes clearly was an on field leader. 

But let's agree to disagree.

Very good decision to put Viney, Gawn and McDonald in. They've played their way in to the role. Likewise taking Dawes and Lumumba out who should not have been given a free ride into it. Not super keen on Garland, maybe it'll help him capture his form of a few years ago but he didn't look the part last year even though he's the first to confess his love of the club

I think the young players being included is important, they're going to be driving this club for the next 10 years, i would have thought Viney is currently a short priced favourite to take over from Jones as captain in the next few years

Even photoshop won't let Tom and Jack get too close just yet.

Though I'm sure it would have been tempting to photoshop some of Gawn's excess beard onto Nat's head. And it seems they gave something of a smile to Col without making it look too unrealistic.

Mahoney and Viney Snr have often talked about the list strategy being a core group of young players coming through together, so having those young leaders in there would definitely be a part of that strategy.

Dunn going from VC to nothing and Garland opting back in are pretty curious.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
