I can't believe this guy is still only 22 years old. He has absolutely dominated since midway through last year and has probably been our best key defender this year which is no mean feat co sidering the quality down back. 

It only occurred to me when viewing the contract thread that he is tied up til 2025 and will only be 25 at end of contract! Massive upside for this young star has the potential to go forward at some stage and could be captain material down the road.

Loving his game this year.

Yeah every time I see his age I’m stunned, he looks 25+ already so I think of him as older.

He's every bit as good as Max King is forward.

Petty is now our best defender IMO. Lever is our best interceptor, but Petty can intercept almost as well and has become as good as May is 1v1.

The other thing about Harry is he's really calm with ball in hand. There was a great moment down in front of us a few weeks ago at Geelong where he basically feigned 3 or 4 times before calmly kicking out of defence. May and Lever have both been guilty of banging it on the boot indiscriminately this season, but not Petty. A very neat kick and outside of Max, our best contested mark IMV.

Sign him up til 2032!

A Jason Taylor special. I wonder if JT can find us another 1 or 2 forward equivalents in the second round?

I don’t think we can cover him down back so can’t do it this year but if we got griffen logue out of the Luke Jackson trade it could mean we could send petty forward and really improve us as a side. 

 

This is where I think Disco Turner could be massive for us. If he can hold down a defensive role alongside May and Lever, it gives us that flexibility to use Petty as a high impact swingman.

I think you answered your own question mate.

I'd rather keep him back too, but we need forwards, so as a stop gap selection in game or if we suffer injuries like this year, I reckon he'd be very good forward.

Edit. I used to be against moving Petty at all, but I've become an advocate for it as we haven't been able to address our KPF issue and Weideman hasn't come on, and TMac's injury has made it painfully clear we need more KPFs.

If and it’s a big IF we could find a suitable replacement down back Harrison could fill TMacs shoes as he has big engine as well. I was surprised by how much Territory young Petty covers.

Best set of hands in the side at the moment. Petty's enjoyed a good year so far but is still quite underrated amongst many in the AFL media. 

I have a feeling that will change in 2023 if not in the next month.

I’ve thought the same thing AF. I know the club is very bullish on Disco. The likelihood that we bring in a game hardened contested forward in the offseason is only 50/50, so we’d have to have a plan that includes what is already on the list. Brown is always going to be a week by week proposition now and him, TMac, and Mitch Brown are all coming to the end. I’d imagine that Harry’s future is a topic of a lot of conversation at the club.

Star in the making. Will have future AA jumpers and could easily play forward in the future. JT has worked some magic with the steak knives pick from the Jake Lever trade.

He really is turning into something special isn’t he. Thought he was just about our best last night.

I think we have to play him forward, fully understanding that our defence will be weakened. Smith, Turner and Tomlinson need to step up and fill his void.

Petty, JVR and TMac forward of the ball (with Fritsch and Koz) is a massive step up from what we had last night, and is significantly harder to defend.

He’s copping it big time from the Lion Filth online. 
Enough for me to hope Jeelong win next week 

the Lions are a durge club 

Eye Goughers….

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
