Has OMAC surpassed his brother? (The Age)

Recommended Posts

I believe Omac is the best full back of this century, and probably of all time.

 

(If we keep saying it enough, it becomes true. I've seen it work at other clubs.)

It'll only take one bad match for people to be calling for his head.

To be fair to Oscar he's asked to do a lot more than Tom was. Tom also got a lot more support when he was a defender. Oscar's best was with Lever supporting him and then he's been back to the old Oscar since, but slightly better.

That's what it means to be a younger brother.

OMG i knew the Age has essentially destroyed its credibility in the past few years, but this is the final confirmation if ever it was needed.

Clickbait x 1000

Oscar:  “I think a key to a good finals team is to have a really settled backline that is willing to do anything to save goals, and defend really hard, so I think that’s what we’re building towards.”

And so it was Friday night.  They played and defended with purpose and desperation.  Look forward to more of that this Friday.

And:  "Oscar remains out-of-contract but insists a new deal isn’t far away".   Probably won't be announce until after our finals run.

That can't be right. A demonland poster (whose name escapes me) is confident he us not 'locked away' because he is not best 22 and club are holding odf with a view to trading him.

Sheesh.

Dr cool is getting cooler.

Well, when you're trying to spoil or mark, good positioning is the key.

He's clearly been working on that aspect of the game, if he can now spoil with his 5th vertebrae.

A month is a long time.  Most sheep around here were calling for his head.  Not many of the nervous nellies were sticking fat with OMac.

This.

All the c&$p that went on four years ago about Dunn versus OMAC. It was obvious Dunn would never play in a Dee premiership and OMAC was pinpointed by Roos and Goody as the go-with option. He hasn't let them or us down! Only another 240 games to go Oscar . . . and they'll still be into ya mate!

As a backman TMAC's best was/is better than OMAC's. As a forward there is no comparison.

Click bait from the age. Either that or Cherny simply has no idea.

Did anyone here actually read the article? The title was a bit of a trick. He's surpassed his brother in games played without kicking a goal now.

Tom's settled up forward. Oscar's settled down back. He's developed well over the past 12 months and will be important for our club going forward. Hopefully a new contract is signed soon.

I’m not that fat according to my BMI, but I’m sticking fat for Oscar! 4 year deal soon to be announced!

As a defender it is a reasonable question. Oscar is a better decision maker and field kick than Tom. 

By the end of next year I suspect he’ll be seen as the better defender

    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.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen
