With the pick we've got for Kent, can we package those together for Carlton's first pick?  Or will Carlton need to hand over their second rounder as well?

Someone get SOS on the phone.

I wonder if Preuss on board we'll see more of Maxy up forward in the same vein as Mason Cox?

I truly believe Pruess is more then capable holding down main rucking role for longer periods if it mean Maxy could stay up forward for longer periods of the time and snag a few goals here and there.

Good luck Pruess looking forward to seeing what you can produce in tandem with Gawn.

Similar attributes to Gawny so if we can get him on the program that Gawn’s on he will be a beast !

Not saying he can’t kick goals or mark but we really need to work on those attributes so he can be more than just “Gawns back up”. He could become a dangerous tall up forward with TMac & Weids while being a very handy option to Max Gawn in the ruck when Gawn has a rest or plays up back/forward.

If he followed a similar trajectory to Mason Cox when playing forward we will be unstoppable next year.

Particularly now that you have to start someone in the square.

You should apply for a job at the Dockers.

GREAT trade for a quality ruckman. Now he just needs to train with Maxy over summer and get super fit!

Yeah, fits perfect. A hat tip to Mark Jamar and his work with Gawny, and also "Preuss or Preuß is a German surname derived from Preussen, the German word for Prussia"

Max Gawn's busted toenails on his Instagram are a good enough reason to trade for a big ruck. Liking this.

Not convinced he and Gawn will play together, especially against the best sides. But the ability to not over do Max through the season is vital. Got to keep your best players fit and healthy through the season, they are the ones that matter come crunch time.

Perhaps the biggest get.

I spent a good part of the year worrying about Max going down.

Every time I saw him in a heap on the ground, I would look to see if he got up without a limp or injury.  

We were seriously exposed without a backup ruckman particularly at finals time.

 Just hope that Preuss has what it takes.

I actually think Maxy could go the other way and move more towards the backline. Not as a 1 on 1 defender but similar to what he did this year and really play as lose man filling holes. If BP (my nickname contender) can hold his own as a forward then switching them depending on the game situation could work very well - it's something that's not been seen at AFL level either.

All for this. The Demons looked awesome when the Germans ruled: Schwartz and Neitz. We now have Weidemann and Preuss.

Plus Wagner and Fritsch. You could possibly throw in vandenBerg, too, although perhaps that's Dutch.

SHH. Fritsch is our secret weapon. And, please, VDB is Dutch. Call a Dutchman German at your own peril. I made the mistake when I was 15 and got a lecture about the bombing of Rotterdam. I had to point out to the demented Dutchman that I was born in 1950 and had nothing to do with it.

Maybe North see Daw as being Goldy's successor (the next NicNat)?

It is a point of interest but I'd reckon, given his young age he has not developed into a 'ruckman' just yet and this is supported by his rugby background, as well. It often takes a tall to become a ruck after several years - just look at Max, and Tangles, and Keenan, and Stynes, and O'Dwyer, and many others, as examples of this longer and bumpier road to ruck skills. North, as well, are not great in recent years at developing players to their short-term advantage, either; it was not a good place for him to start his transition to Aussie Rules, I guess. Not everyone is going to be an early, fully skilled Polly Farmer, NicNat, Gary Dempsey, et al.  For me, the point is that he has potential in buckets to get fully match fit, developed, or becoming a KPD, KPF and ruckman. To assist Max to enjoy a long, injury-free career, he'll be just fine for the mighty Dees!

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
