If Jesse was to play high Half-forward/Mid, he could afford to lose 6 Kgs IMV,  which be better on his leg joints.  And he would be an absolute wrecking ball like this,  thru the midfield...  where he suited, thru the fat part of the ground.

Needs to do what Gawn did last preseason.

He wont lose any strength, but he will be a lot more durable.

I can't believe how good Sam was. Absolutely insane. 3 goals, 24 disposals, 7 marks, 3 contested, 2 marks inside 50, 4 tackles, 2 clearances 70% disposal efficiency.

I knew he had talent, but for him to rise to the occasion in an elimination finals game, and be one of our best is so awesome for Weed's momentum and confidence going forward. So excited to see how he develops further. Not sure how we fit all of Weed + Hogan + Tmac into the side. 

He's no whathisface, that's for sure.

He likes to get involved, get touch, and he can kick like a mule.

 

 

I've got his Nick-Name...  >>>   Sam  'Sue'  Weideman.

Really really happy for Weid what a Game what a Statement, 3 critical goals and that tackle on Dangermouse was the icing on the cake.

I'd be making sure because his value to other clubs will have gone off the charts in the last few weeks.

I can hear Eddie Mcguire crying from here, missed out on the grandson of one of their greats in our Weeeeed, and also the young kid at the dogs as well.

Great game by weid, so happy to see it, especially loved his aggression.

But to say we can’t fit all of him, hogan and tmac is short sighted in my opinion,

just because the tigers are going well with mainly smaller forwards, doesn’t mean everyone else has too!!

the game changes and develops, and new trends come and go. You just play your style and tactics and if we start the new trend of playing 3 mobile talls, and win a flag, then I guarantee everyone else will Start to ask why shouldn’t we play 3 talls.

Yok.   Maybe for a change WE could be the trendsetters....and Weed, Tom and Hogan are very good below their knees, very athletic for their sizes.

anyone suggesting hogan being traded needs their head read

mobile forwards don't grow on trees and we have not one, not two, but THREE of em!

All very mobile, all can relieve ruck ...... and whence Bull Smith?

Truth be told, I squibbed it and turned off the 3rd quarter... did this happen in the third? 

Also, a few reports of Jetta v Danger... were some of those one on ones in the third??

Thats OK Danelska.

I cooked while watching/listening. such is the roller coaster we've all been on over the past, up to 50+ years for some here.

 

I hope CH-7 repeat the game in full, from the Pre-Game music intro, so I can record it and watch it again. 

Because I missed part of the pre-game, and I was recording 'the Melb Storm' as well, and missed the last part of both games,,, as the recorder ran out of space.   With having the Perth game and last weeks,  still saved in the recorder.

 

Please Ch-7__  replay the match in full, late in the night, so we can all relive the moment.

‘Mr September’!

As a sixty year Demon fan I never ever thought back in my youth that I could even be happy for a Weed to play well anytime, especially in September.

His tackling pressure for such a big man is immense.

No offense to Hoges, but hes quite a lazy player when it comes to forward pressure and tackling. 

Also this is a HUGE HUGE tick for Jason Taylor.

He stood up big time the past few weeks and especially last night. That was a break out game. He’s always showed he could become a threat in the air and was already one of the most aggressive tacklers on the list. Last night he put it all together. Always knew he’d make it, and now it’s onwards and upwards! Weiiiidddddd!!!

If I was his manager I wouldn't let him get stuck in the VFL for half of next year after his performances of the last three weeks.

He's contracted till next year so we're only let him go if we are happy too and the price is right. 

The best part about his last three weeks is that anyone who wants him is going to have to pay because he is a pick 9 showing he will make it: his value is therefore at least pick 9, and personally i think higher. A month ago that value was harder to argue on exposed form. 

I think we'll reflect and decide on what we want to do with the three talls next year and beyond. If we think it can and will work we will hold on to him.  If we think it won't work, we'll decide who we're will get the best value from keeping/trading and go from there. 

Weid will be super important to give Gawn a chop out or a week off and help him look after his body, and I think that's how we'll fit them all in: a ruck, 2 KPFs and a ruck/forward on the bench. The real advantage is that both Hogan and TMac are mobile enough to push up the ground meaning we won't lose too much run. 

 

Gawn is 27, TMac 26, Hogan 23.5, Weid 21. That age spread is perfect for us if we can keep them together, enabling is to replenish slowly. So we'd be silly not to try and hold them together.

How good was Weid!! These KPP types can have these moments. I look to Tom Hawkins in the 2011 grand final or Tom Boyd in 2016 as massive examples.

Weid gives us another aerial threat on the wings now. No longer are we getting slaughtered in the air!

The "Weed" call is already one of those things people are going to look forward to doing when they go to games. Shades of Ang Christou's "Woof" when he kicked it, and Yze's "Ooooze"....

Only one slight criticism of Weed's game. When he took that mark in the goal square with under 6 mins to go he shouldn't have played on. He had a chance to waste 30 seconds which just may have been needed if the cats got a run on from their 2 quick goals afterwards.  Unlikely but not impossible.

Took the kids to the toilet at qr time just after he kicked the goal after the siren.
Pumped up demon supporters had the low rumbling "Weeeeed" call going the tunnels around the food halls etc.

its not hogans talent, its his attitude. weideman is far better for our team dynamic. people are naive if they think that its coincidence we are playing our best footy as soon as hogan left the team. 

It's worth reminding people that there might be more to coincidence than meets the eye. While you might be right, as this chart shows causality doesn't always correlate with outcomes:

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile).

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
