Lewis played some good football for the Demons this year.

Shocker on Saturday but had nearly 21 mates in the first half.

Obviously next year will be it, as falling to ground, speed etc will just get worse.

Trade was worth it!

Not sure if alternative pre season with martial arts training incorporated may improve his balance & strength, for one last season!

 

Absolutely, the trade was worth it, there were three imports who each in his own way, have been  instrumental in the improvement in our on field performances.Firstly they were all great footballers. Daniel Cross in 2013 crossed from Footscray. He brought a  level of professionalism and fitness and this began to be become the benchmark to the club. He was part of the leadership group and remains involved with the club. Bernie Vince, who  reluctantly came to Melbourne in 2013,. He led from the front and never took a backward step. He was our best and fairest winner in 2016. A great leader and clubman. Finally, Jordan Lewis a four time premiership player, acting captain of the Hawthorn football club.  As the MFC website says  "Drives standards and acts as a quality teacher for the club’s younger players".

After 307 games he has experience that no other player who has played for the MFC can match (David Nietz came close). Of course his playing career is drawing to a close but he is still a class act and an  inspiration to our younger players. I hope he still gets games on merit and bows out on his own terms. As a player, he is largely responsible for  making Melbourne become a destination club.

The hysterical label of this thread and inconsiderate criticism of him do little justice to his achievements as a competitor and contributor to our club.

Sorry, this talk of him being totally finished is such utter rubbish.  Yeah he was bloody ordanary in the prelim, but so was half the side.  Lewis was a stand out performer in the Rd 22 game against West Coast and also the Crows game at the Adelaide oval, for just two clutch games that I can think of.  And how many of the younger guys say how invaluable his finals experience was for the Elimination and Semi finals.

It's true, as Bernie somewhat showed this year, that we don't know when his body and mind will fall completely off a cliff, but even if we only get the equivalent of half a season out of him, he'll provide a much better return and investment than anything we would likely replace him with on the list, given we have already have 7 delisted/retired players.

Which may explained the interest in KK???

Not quite sure what the inferance is there.  We are now up to 8 delisted/retired and possibly still a few to be traded.  Obviously we need someone to step up and step into a replacement for the role Lewis plays, but I don't think that would be at his expense.  

That said, I do find the reference to Cross above intersting.  From what I recall, Crossy was keen to play another year, but the club not so inclined.  I guess part of the difference could be that Jordan was already contacted for next year, whereas Cross may not have been.

Nice post Mydee. Hysteria and diatribe are common however. We are a better team because of their significant contributions.

If I were Simon Goodwin/Josh Mahoney/Gary Pert or Glenn Bartlett it would be clean out your locker on Monday, thanks for the 2 years and good luck in the media.

Bruise free, treacle slow, mentally soft and physically weak players don't get to go around talking up their leadership and importance, not if I had anything to say about it.

Lewis and Jones were on the wings tonight . The disrespect Goodwin is showing to the wing position is astounding 

I was laughing my head off at the game when they lined up on the wings.  Coaching staff are in denial.  

Not surprised when Jordan started pointing the finger at teammates when he got beaten back.  He is a beaten man, but still proud.

 

But I don’t blame Lewis.  I blame our decision to recruit him, and 95% of the simpletons that absolutely applauded the decision.  Lazy dumb decision.  Inward looking.  Self-defeating.

 

Clarkson has Hawthorn in the window...wonder why.

A headless chook offers more than Lewis and Jones 

Jones OK first half.  Can’t compare him with Lewis IMO.

 

Not Jones’ fault that Goody does not respect the wing position, like you said.

 

 

 

Frost and Hibberd had to go there when we were at Hail Mary at 3/4 time.

We are not playing finals this season, so why waste valuable game time on Lewis when he will be hanging them up at seasons end. Bring him in against Hawks for a farewell match, then have him down at Casey as an on field coach.

If we are going to lose I would at least like us to be playing some untried players like Baker and Chandler to see if they are going to be useful next season.

Four weeks of being told how much we needed Lewis' leadership, then he unnecessarily decks a bloke inside 50 and concedes a free. The season is dead, give him a token assistant coach position until the end of the year and work on the future.

☝️And some posters keep insisting that Goodwin is a smart guy and will work it out. Yet week after week Goodwin and the Match Committee ‘brains trust’ - a double oxymoron - lose the game for us before it’s even started.

Just wonder if it's time for someone to tap the coach on the shoulder and tell him to ease off the 'players mate' routine.

Whilst I was never a fan of appointing a documented gambling addict straight out of the most toxic football department to ever disgrace the game, I do rate his ability to connect with players as one of his strong suits; shouldn’t impact on match selection decisions  though.

    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

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    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. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    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

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    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

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
