And we need probably both to show some old fashioned Mongrel which Im sure that they will be more than willing to do!

I remember the lily livered soft garbage from the 88 GF 

NEVER EVER AGAIN and if players go out as result so be it!

Yes. We older Gen remember the absolute Humiliation that Whorethorn threw at us that day in ‘88. 

You cannot read about that stuff, nor ‘87. You had to be there, and 31 years later we still wonder if we are going to make it. 

Meanwhile excluding ‘88, Whorethorn have won 6 more Flags to have 13 on display. 

More than the MFC

So Lewis is dropped... Who is his replacement?

You're spot on here, mate.  Not only that but the 50 metre penalty was a soft as they come with Walters going down like he'd been shot.

Lewis is doing far more positive than negative for our side and there's simply no chance he gets dropped.

Hang on!

Thread derailed! My entire universe has gone skewiff....Sir and Wise agreeing???

I know.  I'm as surprised as you are that SWYL has finally matured in his views.

He probably won't be bothered, but I reckon he would have a case.  What he did was no worse than the pushing, shoving and blocking that would go on around the stoppages during a game.  Or he could ask Michael Walters to pay it, as had he hit someone else who doesn't have a pea heart it wouldn't have even been a 50 metre penalty.

From the vision shown on television Lewis connected with Walters' arm: the rest was Hollywood.

I don't see how this equals May's hit from behind on Higgins on the monetary scale of things.

Then again, what hasn't been mentioned is before May hit Higgins they were involved in a contest and landed on top of each other. You just see there's 'involvement' between the two as the camera follows the ball further into North's forward line. I would guess Higgins delivered a snipe or two at this point and when May got up he retaliated. 

It amazes me that the sniper who starts a conflict, if his victim strikes back, is treated as the innocent victim and the retaliator as the aggressor and the fall guy who pays the fine or who gets rubbed out: witness Hogan against Lamb last year...

Bernie has the same Finals experience, coming into September as Jordan Lewis does he?

 

So amusing. We still like Choir boys to represent the MFC arond here. 

When i was at School Big Carl would lift the elbow at least 3 times a game. Playing for Melboune and against us. 

September is a tough month, as it should be

Bernie? Choir boy?

Lost me on that one....

Nope, but they are both aging, and need rests.   Just like thoroughbreds need rests from work, they all do.

Bernie back this week, and a week, Or 2, off for Jordan, is how I would plan it. 

71/2  weeks to Springtime.

nowza time to rest those weary legs,   before we get serious.

No time for a rest. Work is to be done. 

Bernie is an asset but he doesn’t have the Finals experience of Lewis. We need him out there.

you have no idea; rest is required for the older and the younguns, from time to time.  All your mantra of 'work to be done' is just wishful thoughts based in nought.

just like saty, based in nought.

 

We need Bernie and Lew in September, and we want them fit and fresh.   To aid the likes of Fritsch, and Oscar, etc.

And we need to recruit more maturity, as these old codgers age.

Bernie doesn't need it, as he is mature and smart anyway.   It's Not about stats swyl,  finals stats;,,  its about composure, & that is mostly in older minds.

All the talent in the world is useless without it.

Holidays LoL...  being professional means doing the smart things to get the most out of the team, and the list. Resting bernie the last 2 weeks hasn't hurt us, but will advantage us for the next 6 - 7 weeks.
Same can be said for Lewis.

IMO Bernie's legs look fitter than Lewis's ,,, so I reckon Lew would reap more rewards than Bernie,  from a rest.

It will help us, moving towards September.

 

There is no point having a handful of 30+ Yr olds, with massive game numbers,  and then 3qtrs of a list all under 60 games.  

We need to give games to our young, where we can, and at smart times.

Lewis was bought in because of his September experience

not to sit in the Grandstand. If we don’t make Finals that experience is useless.

afl.com says that Lewis fined $2000 for a stray elbow! Rule of the week!  What is a stray elbow? The word stray is not in the rules. The word elbow is not in the rules so how can that be?

I don't know if you realise yet swyl, but this week and next week are NOT September... that's still 7 weeks away.

Freshening an older player up in July, is the prime time to do it.

I think we will play finals no matter in 2018, with or without Lewis, or others.  We are far more than a one man band, and we will make them without Maxy, if need be.

 

The trick is to rest those who need rest, drop those who aren't earning their place, and to promote those who are ready.

Hopefully Keilty gets a shot now, before we get any closer to September.

August is NOT the time to experiment with players and with form.

 

July is our last chance to find a Lever replacement.

It is now the 'Clarkson' free after he complained to Gil over a morning coffee.  Might add Hawks were/are one of the worst offenders.

Sometimes umpires pay it sometimes they don't.  Remember the first rule of umpiring:  If it is a 50/50 call penalise Melbourne!!

You got that wrong, LH. Terribly wrong and moreso because it is a frequent, week-to-week  outcome right across the ground. The first rule of umpiring is: ' IF IT'S A 30 (OTHER TEAM) TO 70  (MFC) OR HIGHER, (MFC) CALL, PENALISE MELBOURNE. FURTHERMORE, IF THE MFC ARE GOING TO SCORE FROM THE DECISION, IT IS MANDATORILY A PENALTY AGAINST THE MFC.'

You should have checked with Razor Ray before this post, as he would have put you right. Any doubts, ring Gil for a confirmation. 

Now, the second rule of umpiring is: ????????? (Fill this space.....................)

So, take a risk on Keilty and whomever else against one or more of Dogs, Cats (away), Crows (Away).

That sounds like good risk free experimentation to me.

I sure hope you have an inside line to the upper echelons of the AFL exec and can, for sure, say that they've already conspired to ensure MFC limps into the finals.

We are limping now since Lever went down.

We entered the season limping with regard to TMc and Viney...  when all those 3 got together, we hit our straps.  Then Lever went down.

We have been battling to find something that will work  at half back since that time.  Since then Oscar started to struggle a bit and Harry Petty experiment didn't workout.

 

So to imply we are traveling well,,, and we should not take any risks now, in July, is crazy.

Now is the time to try to get that back pivot sorted out, as best we can.

 

Personally myself I would bite he bullet and send TMc back to CHB for this year, and play Hogan & Weide, up forward, and Pedo where required.

I actually thought Frost played well and i know he can be a bit meh at times, but i actually like the look of our backline a lot more now that hes in (i.e. since Lever went down i haven't liked it). I'd happily play him the rest of the year.

No we don't,,, we need his experience in September.  not as much Right-Now...   and we want him physically and mentally fit & ready, in September.

 If we cannot get to September without Lewis,,, then we should not be there anyway. 

 

We have the players, 'young maybe';  but they have to learn to steer the ship themselves,,, and put the things they've learned into actions.

I'd rather them try that now without 'Lew' for 2 matches,,, and bring back Bernie now, and play Jones as defensive mid. Him and Bernie keeping a close eye on our back-half.

 

We need that experience your talking about,,, for 8 weeks, starting in August.

 

What we need now is 'runners', and some added speed.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees.

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t
