I'd be more concerned with Bernie Vince then Lewis.

Overreaction. Have a cup of tea mate.

Anyone not looking squarely at the midfield in that loss is barking up the wrong tree. At clearances and stoppages we were destroyed.  They controlled the game.

I've been off Lewis for a while now but I thought he was actually quite good in the last 10 minutes today.  His marshalling of the defence and his important late touches made a real difference.  He is a liability in that he is of no use when the game is at its quickest but as it slows down and becomes more of a slog he can find a useful groove.  He's not long for the AFL but I thought he did what was needed late today.  Having said that I'd think that when Lever and May return there won't be the same need for his generalship of the defence.

He literally handed them a goal in the last 10 minutes lol

If we're focusing on individual moments, how about getting the free kick marking infringement in front of Roughead with 6mins to go, or his diving mark from the Jaeger inside 50 entry after the Bruess goal with 5 mins to go? That's two inside 50's repelled. And both of his free kicks found targets in Gawn & Hibberd.

I'd prefer Wanger piggybacking Lewis. Then we've got young legs mixed with seasoned football iq

Moving that fast would cause his Wig to fall off

Had a mixed day, mostly an off one unfortunately.  Looks like a fitness issue at this point and seems to be treading water going at about 55% of last year's usual output.  Might need to be managed a little when Nev returns.

Threaded the needle a few times with a change of direction coming out of the square to get us some great ground position but offered very little else unfortunately.

4 Premierships, a B&F and All Australian.  Proud to have Jordy at our club, providing leadership and direction to a very inexperienced backline.

I trust he will know IF/when it's time.

P.S.  Jordy should be on the D'land banner ....in place of May who's done zip for this club so far (assuming that IS May in the middle).

What is the alternative? 

This is what I want to know. I don't want him in the side, but need to know who we'd fill his spot with or what we'd do with a non like-for-like player. Very willing to discuss alternatives. The idea of on-field leadership is great (if it's actually happening), but we're hardly original recipe GWS having to field Power, Cornes, Brogan and Junior to help the kids.

100% Supermercado. It’s been the question for a while now as well. If the plan is to just throw J.Wagner in and expect him to control tempo, hit a composed kick on demand and organise the backline then forget it. Having said that to carry this kind of player for over half a season is a stretch (no pun). 

I can’t see anyone becoming this role player any other way than choosing someone and just sticking them down there for a prolonged period of time, accepting mistakes might happen along the way in the process. Similar to persisting with Hunt up forward.

It seems a trifle, to rifle, a gun. Those who do are without patience. Let him weave his wisdom. He has contributed to many a win. The win today was yet another example. Let that stand. I stand with Jordan Lewis. So should you.

We will be better with him out of the team.  No disrespect to him, its same situation as Vince last season.  We couldnt play both Lewis and Vince.

Now its the same with Lewis and Jones.

If anyone has seen the last 2 minutes of the game video on the afl website. Look at lewis in the last minute. Mcevoy marks it deep in defence, gives it off to a burgoyne who gets a free kick. 40 secs left.  Lewis is further up the field pointing and directing. He guards space himself and has 2 hawks players within his vicinity. He mans neither of them but errs on the side of manning the guy further away from our goals leaving the other guy free over the top. Burgoyne hits him and hawks are now streaming down the field with lewis lagging behind.  in the last 20 secs amongst all the chaos, the ball spills to lewis who manages to fumble, but thankfully it didnt hurt us. 

it just summed lewis up in 1 piece of play. Poor leadership and Incorrect game sense, slow on the transition and not clean.

I'm not saying he wasnt a gun in the past, but he isnt the same anymore.

Regardless of results he will need to be transitioned out of the side during the season in preparation for 2020 and beyond. 

In 4-6 weeks we might see some guys come back. That's when we can talk about what we do with Jordie. Until then he is one of the only viable options we have got back there.

Goodwin more or less assured Lewis of continuous gifting of games in his press conference. 

“He’s earned them.” Something about being a champion of the game  

Far out Goody. Don’t preach the team first rhetoric and at the same time give me this rubbish. 

He’s done. He was a jet, a MIDFIELD jet in a team full of stars many years ago.

He fell off the cliff a long time ago. 

Can’t wait for Lever and May to get back in the team.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
