Couldn’t agree more.

When May and Lever are back put Frost on a wing. Tall, can run and kick long into the forward 50.

this. I was laughing myself watching this. As were a few dozen people around me.

When I saw Lewis and Jones line up on the wings for the first bounce I almost spewed.  Two slowest players in the true ‘outside mid’ positions.  Do not offer enough defensive capability from there, and certainly offer little offensively.  The barrel must be almost at empty if this is where we are at.

i hoped his leadership would add some value, but hard to lead when you can’t lead by example....

That is what is so worrying.

Having 2 slow, over 30's on the wings in a 6-6-6 scenario is suicide.

Saints had 6 players under 20 games and guess what, they are well drilled, know what to do and where to go and have pace and skill.

Lewis has one thing going for him, his leadership. I thought we would bring him back  to help organize the backline, which is made up of mostly young inexperienced players and out of form players. 

Instead we bring him to play on the wing. He who can barely run, can no longer kick, refuses to tackle or run defensively. 

He is underdone and they played him on the wing. I have no words for the stupidity. 

He needs to retire but until that time he needs to play in a position where he can influence without hurting us with his lack of pace. The wing is NOT his position.

He's not going to add anything to the side playing on a wing. It's the backline, and with a rocket up him to put his body on the line, or it's VFL.

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.

Does he actually do this?

Suggest you ring the club, because they haven't worked it out.

It is actually funny that you pay these guys a sh-tload of money for their expertise and they can't see what the rest of the footy world does.

What do we do with him?

Saw him warming up with the midfield group pre game and thought maybe he will play in the middle in spurts. Then I saw him head to the wing and instantly thought he might line up closer to the defensive 50 so he can be the spare in defence after the bounce which is probably his most suitable role but no, he stayed on the wing and was on Newnes early from memory. As mind blowing as seeing Hibbo go to Membrey at the opening bounce.

Lewis came to the Club a greatly respected player. I, now sense he is losing that respect and the players are not listening to him as they should because his performances have slid. A smart Club would have altered his final year contract from player to assistant coach. It really was a no brainer.

Yep, saw a player in the last Q totally disregard a lead out the back from him.

Looked at him and said to himself no cheap kick for you sunshine.

Went back and had his kick to position...

Look, it is really sad how we have handled Lewis, he is or was a great get for the Club with the experience and knowledge he brought. And it is also sad that another ex Hawk, legend this time, Brereton  just casually turned up at St Kilda to coach their forwards. How did we miss that opportunity.

I think newly appointed coaches grow and learn on the job.  Bux, Hardwick, Richo??? 

But the decision to put 1.5 old slow players on the wing of a big ground, when our speed has been questioned (smart posters questioned this 3 years ago), was absolutely mind-boggling.

He is picking and placing on reputation rather than current capacity.

 

Then when the penny dropped he hides Lewis on the bench for the first 8-9 minutes of at least 2 quarters.  But he puts Fritch on the wing.  Treacle gets replaced by grace.  Goodwin wants slow perfection into our I50.  When a team ain’t perfect (at least 6 short easy 20 metre passes missed their target) GIVE ME bloody CHAOS.

The wings need blitzkreig chaos. Hibbo and Frost should have been tried when we needed the Hail Mary at 3/4 time.

 

Pathetic coaching by Goodwin.  He will learn, but the signs have been there.  Not reviewing the PF when it was a clear sign of what we band-aided, and what was to come?  Finals wins against Geelong and Hawthorn were against relatively slow back-half to front-half teams.  Saints beat us last year, who were THE fastest back-half to front-half team in the comp in 2018.

Maths doesn’t lie.

 

I said when we recruited Lewis, “he will make a slow team slower”.  He has, unquestionably.

 

I can’t think of a worse recruiting decision by a club in my memory.

It is laughable!  Just as laughable as when Goodwin played with no wingmen vs Hawks last year. 

And he had Jones play as a tagger on Mitchell in that Hawks game, just as he had him tag Billings in the first half yesterday.  Jones is not a tagger, is not a wingman and is not a leader.

Let's get to the bye then play the kids.  Can't be any worse than playing retirees-to-be and VFL level players.

And on the MCG of all grounds!

No wonder we can only play well on smaller ovals.

The season is dead, give him a token assistant coach position until the end of the year and work on the future.

Our season is dead now...  not because of the ladder [position,  but because our gamestyle is cooked.  And what we lack to suit  '666'.

Put more kids into the team now...  and keep Lewis in,  to guide them.  No point becoming the new  "9thMond".

 

Make Lewis a decent offer to be an assistant from this mid season...  and stay playing til end of season.  Next season a VFL playing assistant coach to guide new kids coming in.

Keep Brendan McCartney as Player Coach-Performance Manager,  to oversee and to modify our development programs.

 

Pull the other slower legs out of the team now.  And look to trade out at seasons end.   Hit the draft up,  for skilled running Kids with Attitude.

Keep our better leaders in,  to set the tone for the new Kids.

Classic in-between'rs can go.

..................................................

Possible trade outs: 

Hibbo 29+Yrs already,  He may want to go home ?

Garlett

Frost

Hunt

etc.

SO you want leg speed but your potential trades include 3 guys with genuine leg speed. I’m confused.

He can guide them in giving away petulant free kicks behind play.

    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

    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.
