WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - BAYLEY FRITSCH

Recommended Posts

It is just plain fun to think that we have the best 'true' medium forward in the game. Only Heeney would be a direct competitor but that thought just makes me dream of what Fritsch would be like in a fully functional forward line... oh... wait... that wasn't a dream... that was 12 goals in 3 finals!

:goody2:

Anyway, just for gloating's sake; top selections from the 2017 draft, reordered roughly as I might pick em, but very casually.

Angus Brayshaw

Aaron Naughton

Bailey Fritsch

Zac Bailey, Cameron Rayner, Adem Cerra

Tim Kelly, Liam Ryan, James Worpel, Charlie Ballard

Spargo and Petty also respectable mentions.

 

Demonland needs a Jason Taylor emoji.

Oh Dear.

Well, I'm not the first and won't be the last!

I wonder if there might even be a repeat of the 'D Cordner' (Denis & Don, of course) situation with the Brownlow votes one day.

I never had that problem with Allen Jakovich. He's a forward and I reckon somewhat comes with the territory.

Yes of course, but sometimes… it less a burning and more an immolation worthy of scripture and legend…

His tackling and forward pressure has come along nicely

Tracing around those big ol’ letters and getting high on texta fumes.

Fritta’s mum just rocked up: let the fun begin! 🥳

When Pauline saw this she said, “I think I’m gonna cry” and I said “stop, you’ll make me cry!” And so began a chain reaction and suddenly Bayley had an additional half a dozen mums. 😁
 

And two brand new Giant Fritta heads!

One of my favourite Demons!

He's had a quietly good season so far despite not tearing a game apart. Hopefully this is the weekend he comes out firing and kicks a bag of six or seven. 

Side note - He becomes the first player from his draft year to hit the 100 game milestone which is a terrific effort!

Well done on 100... no one would have seen your career trajectory and highlights package coming, least of all your grand final performance.

 

Anyway... glad he snuck through a goal tonight...

Marbol and Bayley are the only two left standing... kicked a goal in every match in 2022...

got a shout out by the commentators at one stage when he was in a contest around the 50m arc

"hair-raising? he's played 100 games and never had a hair out of place!"

Mr. and Mrs. Fritta loved the hair-raising reference on the banner. They had a choice of either that, or High-Flying. They chose wisely, since Fritta loved it too. 
Scott (Dadda Fritta) was so pleased about the fam (14 of them) being invited to raise the banner, he sent us this message this morning. Note how he signs off. 😁

Honestly, this is so heartwarming. It’s easy to forget in the context of billion dollar tv deals and million dollar contracts that these are just people, with families.

It means so much to them, and only means more as they get further into life and realise how lucky they’ve been to be involved in the way they are.

It's a yes from me

I must say the Bailey Fritsch had an excellent 2022. 55 goals and 5th on the goalkicking table behind Curnow, Lynch, Cameron and Hawkins. He has steadily improved and notably his goalkicking accuracy has improved tremendously. 
55.22. An excellent conversion. 
All the practice which seemed to dessert him in game time finally paid off and he’s become a strong part of the team. 
Whilst I’m sure he rather be competing and winning the GF, he can hold his head high.
Congratulations to Fritsch on an excellent 2022.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
