If memory serves, isn't Clayton on the lower end for minutes played? Maybe that's changed since earlier in the season though.

Still being managed though T.O.G. And you can tell when it's happening, as it coincides with our flat-spots in the centre.

Another 8 votes from the coaches and hes now sitting 6th on the leaderboard.

Cant wait to see how he goes on Brownlow night.

 On the couch showed a graph with Danger and Martin on 27 with Clarry third on 18.

Will be top 5 of he plays well in last 4 games. 

Needs to work on using his kicking oppressed to turning backwards looking for a handball every time.

So if Martin gets suspended then Oliver may have it in the bag

You know what's funny about this? The one time he didn't do that on the weekend, he got run down in the last quarter..#notfair

Ha ha yeah. Just needs to be careful that he doesn't become so predictable to opponents plus he has a good burst and is a good kick.

i reckon Clarry might be leading the BL by round 8. 

cant get over how good this kid is. how did he build up such a tank in one pre-season where he apparently turned up in not great shape?

46 contested possessions in the past fortnight. Against two big-bodied mid-fields. Insane.

Can someone with Twitter ask Champion Data what the two-week and three-week records are? (This question was asked re. tackles earlier in the year and quickly answered).

One very determined dude we have there.  Willed himself to do it.  Well done Clarrie.

His drink driving was probably the best thing that happened in a football sense as he got the kick up the bum he needed, and worked hard to repay the clubs faith will be scary to see what he can do in 3 years, will be dusty and danger levels imo

We should lend him the club Corolla with some bourbon & colas in the glove-box. Imagine how good he would be with another kick-up-the-bum? Add a few more indiscretions and he'll eclipse Dusty in no time.

Not sure if the umpires are big on the quick handball clearance.

I think Oliver will poll very well. I think he could even be a danger to Martin.

Clarry is just taking the pizz with those numbers

by the way how did he not make the team of the week, do they only put players in from a winning side, had a much better game than coniglio who made the bench

What a great stat - I just text it in to SEN to try and get some media love for him - not that I listen to the show... maybe someone listening can let me know if its repeated on air.

Beware - if Clarrie was getting too close to the bookies' favorite in the next few weeks*, the MRP would be instructed (by the Integrity Department no less) to find some tiny indiscretion (maybe a high tackle they could deem deliberate and dangerous) to ensure that the chosen one wins.   The media and the gaming / gambling industry call the shots at AFL HQ.

* and I do not believe the BS that they always spin about all votes being locked away at Chubb or Mayne etc.  They know. Maybe Gil gets the duplicates.

If Oliver won the Brownlow, I don't think I'd be able to stand the masses' cries of "Stager! Diver!" Gah, I'm angry just thinking about it. But it probably won't happen, this year at least. Will be nice to watch the count with Dees players wracking up some good numbers for once though.

    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

    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
