If he plays like he did in the finals, then Jesse will be a distant memory.

Big futuregir Sam

Love his commitment skills awareness of Team responsibility and faith in the Club.

Big year for Sam 35/50 goals.

Like any Dees fan will never forget that Elim Final and the super performance from all and Sam's bog.

Breakout last few games in 2018.

Interesting. I was thinking of Steven May as Hogan's 'replacement', as he was the main part of the trade deal. I had expected the Weid to continue his improvement in the seniors regardless of who he played alongside.

Vs Geelong last year:

12 Kicks, 12 handballs, 7 marks, 3 goals, 4 tackles...

He's going to be a gun...

I'm really hoping for a forward line of TMac, Weid and Hunt next year.

I think that was just about my favourite piece of footage all year.

Lol at some of the comments in the clip. Some never miss a chance to pay out on Ablett. I do like the one about looking for a cheapie over the top rather than providing a shepherd for Danger.

Scary to think what Weid may become.

Bub, don't you remember that bloke with the bad body language who used to play in the forward line.

No, not the blonde haired guy, the other one.

Fantastic moment in a huge game.  Well done Sam.

The surfy skulks away and the bald has-been tries but fails for a cheap shot.

A pivotal moment for the game, the team and the individual.  GO WEEDS (would never have thought, 50 years ago, that I would ever ever say that)

Just prior to that he tried to get the easy ball then he tries and fails with a cheap shot.

Love how the Weed goes about it.  no fanfare, no talk, just head down work hard. his agility and aggression improved last year.

still a lot to work on but the signs are good.

It sums up where Geelong are at, and what the inclusion on Ablett has done to their team.

There's two ways of looking at Ablett in that clip.  The first being that he was really in the perfect position for the "cheap" one over the top, but Danger was too slow to acknowledge it, and tried to do too much.  Had he (Danger) got the hands over to Ablett, he was in a world of space.  But, it was Danger's immediate response to do the individual thing that saw him get crunched.

That said, had Ablett put that shepherd on, Danger was also in a world of space (he would've blown Nibbler away).  Ablett's selfishness cost them as well.

While a lot of what happened on the night can be put down to us just dominating the Cats from the first second, that passage of play goes right to the core of what's wrong with Geelong in general.  It's bloody marvellous.

Back on topic, Sammy's just a nice boy who can play bloody good footy.  My love for him grows by the minute.

A great night indeed SWYL. A crowd of 90,000 with at least 60,000 Dees fans in attendance.

I honestly think there were more Dees than that. After the siren and after the song had been sung twice there were only about three small chunks taken out of the crowd.

Yes. We can be a big powerful Club again with sustainable Hard Work

to see the MCG full making so much noise that night was a beautiful thing and we should strive to be there every year

It is our home 🏠

No doubt we're starting to mobilise but we're a hell of along way off being a power club.
That game was 12yrs of pent up frustration released and we were all there to blow the roof of our own dung heap right off.

Yep. And a lot of them were not Members, but the opportunity is there, with hard work. 

If 40,000 rolled up we would be in trouble, but that didn’t happen

I’m going to be very unpopular here and say i’m not convinced.

He is good at ground level but in the air I don’t see it.

Even in that final the marks he took fell to him and he didn’t take them cleanly.

i’m hoping it’s a strength thing and he proves me wrong with a greater upper body.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
