Might I add in addition to how this helps Weid... Imagine the freedom a player like Brown will create for Fritsch.

Very exciting.

agreed. Its going to be a vary tall forward line with Brown Weid and a fast developing Jackson showing he can more than pinch hit up forward. 

We now really need to get in a couple of small runners to help Kozzie apply pressure.

Reasonably pleased to hear Ben Brown wishes to join the Demons. A bit of positive news!

Let's hope Darren Burgess can get him fit and firing with a good pre-season under his belt.

It will be interesting if he wishes to keep number 50 and wear that at the Demons? I am not against that possibiliity if Ben wants to keep wearing that number even if it is quite a high one. Have the Demons had many players wear number 50? 🤔

The piece we were missing in the players puzzle.

Yze is the Clarkson protoge we were missing in the coaches box

2021 is our year.

I reckon with a good pre season as well you could be right 😉

I’m really happy about this. You have to have a plan to beat the guy. No disrespect to Mitch Brown but he’s not exactly keeping the opposition defence coach up at night. He will definitely make us harder to defend against - which opens the doors for others.

On ya Ben. Can’t wait to yell out ‘Bennnnnnyyyyyy!’ at the G for the next 5 years.

Ben  Brown   likes Melbourne it reminds him of North. Only now it will be Melbourne. Staying close to home.

I won't mind your run up when you have a shot for goal.    I think i will start to like it now.

A good fit for the DEES!

As with most of you very happy with this news and he can only improve us IF FIT. Now for TMac. If he does not get picked up I'd keep and play CHB, May FB and Lever to float as he does best. Lever is not a key position player so Tom back and also fit will, in my opinion make us even stronger.

With all the other moves going on right now, I feel like this one will slip under the radar a little, but will make us a much better side in the process.  I like that we went about this quietly and did our due diligence.

As others have said, Brown is a proven goalkicker who will add a different element to our forward line.  Weid can play tall and I'm excited at the prospect of Jackson floating across half forward.  The big fella will almost be a roaming type player who can pluck marks, do some dirty work at ground level and give big Max a chop out in the ruck.

If we get him over for this years second rounder then we've come out of this very, very well.

I like the name Sideshow, but I wonder what North supporters called him? And Brown's response?

They called him Sideshow Bob

The impact of this acquisition could be huge.

Not many clubs will be able to nullify all of Brown, Weid and Jackson in any one game.

Jackson will likely play up the ground which will probably suit him. This means Fritta will get 3rd or 4th defender, and, if Yze can assist his goal kicking, he could have a massive year. 

Throw in a little stint forward for Petracca...WOW...that could be enough to send cheese platters crashing to the ground off the excited laps of many.

Desperately need another small to compliment the talls. Brown, Weid, Jackson, Pickett are a few great pieces of the puzzle, Tracc resting forward with another Pickett type acquisition will make us a lot more dangerous.

We're definitely making finals next year if he kicks 60 goals.

And his set shot routine automatically allows our forwards time to reset to lock the ball in forward 50.

Loving this signing. Welcome to the club Bluey/Brownie.

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc
