Lockhart showed enough to be close to AFL ready last year. With a preseason now he could be very handy as a backup for Jetta or a lockdown mid.  

Definitely shows we nearly drafted him last year. 

Lockhart probably equal with Hore for best 1st year player.  Hannan Fritsch Hore Lockhart.  Good talent out of VFL and our Casey link is working out.  Mitch Lewis is another one still to watch at Casey

Have no idea what this even means. You are either simple or can't grasp the context of what i have been saying. 

From my first impressions of Lockhart this YEAR, is that he looks a natural footballer. He is surprisingly a strong mark for his size, quick, a good kick of the foot and has good nous of where the goals are.

He is the exact reason why Spargo and ANB are arent getting games and thats a bloody mighty achievement for someone who didnt even do a AFL pre season and spent the summer working as a labourer. 

With more games and experience he will only get better.

You said he is battler. Well i can tell you he's not.

Lockhart has heart. That is the sign of a battler. Battle ready.  He is one player I would be happy to run out on GF day to give 100%.  

DD says never knew Lockhart before March 2019.  Must live in a very dark cave.  Only played a whole year at Casey in the Demons team !! DD either lacks a neural nerve or is just hollow.  Assume both.

I didnt watch a Casey game last year because 

1. I dont give two [censored] about Casey players

2. I have much more important things i prioritize in my life then watch a VFL game. Like playing my own game of footy on a Saturday or spending my Sunday with family and friends. I have a life mate.. unlike you i dont sit on my computer all day scrambling to watch meaningless VFL games.

You will also find majority of people had never seen Lockhart play as some live interstate and wouldnt get live games on tv.

Again you have failed to understand the context of what i am trying to say.

This is the last you will hear from me on this, as i have now come to the conclusion that you're simply not with it.

Anyway my point is Lockhart has a heart and plays that way.  Great competitor like Jetta.  That’s the point.  

Unfortunately ineligible for a rising star nomination (23) as recognition to his start to AFL career.

His stats don’t tell the full story either. He is a smart player under pressure and he doesn’t fumble. Two things we are crying out for.

We’ve found one here.

A lot to like about today's game. Has some natural football smarts, is clean with his hands, and has a piercing kick. Small forward position isn't an easy role to play though. There aren't too many small forwards that play consistently aside from Walters, Ablett, Betts, De Goey. Others tend to be in and out of games, so hope he can continue to develop and play other positions. Spargo and even JKH (in his first season) both looked promising at times but are now in the VFL as they aren't elite forwards or able to play other positions when things aren't going their way

I’d just like to put my flag in the ground and say I’ve claimed him!

Love his composure in traffic, especially around goal. Stands out like dogs balls when other, more fancied, teammates are so quick to dump it by hand or foot when under pressure.

When I watched him against Collingwood last week in the VFL he was 2 steps above everyone else. His speed and power around the contests were phenomenal.

The fact that he is already making a huge impact with NO afl pre season behind is amazing.

Has huge upside.

He played a terrific game yesterday.

He played with the poise of a far more experienced player. If he continues this development he'll be a gun. Kudos to whoever spotted him in the wildlands of Taswegia.

Have liked his game from the get-go: as others have said, he has real footy smarts and keen determination, but also he goes so hard at the footy, regardless of the opponent. Yesterday, there were three occasions that I saw, where he crashed the contest against much bigger bodies.

He and Marty Hore have been great pick ups this year - long term Demons, both of them.

He’s the sort of player that is picked up as a mature age recruit by another club, has the game against us that he had yesterday and we all think “why can’t we pick up a player like that?”

This season we’ve picked up two of those types, Hore and Lockhart.

He also worked hard the other way and intercepted in some plays down back.  Not just the talent.  Bloke is willing to work his [censored] off.  Great signs!

Great first goal.   He could be the small forward we desperately need.

Lockhart is about the only thing keeping  me interested at the moment.  Has kicked some lovely goals already.. has great goal sense.  I feel he may snag a couple of bags this season as he gets more comfortable and our mess of gameplan is (hopefully) sorted out.

If Goody moves him from the forward line I will scream.

Jay Lockhart Man Crush -  Activated

Knew he was going to be a gun player.  And I was right as always.

It is quite hard being a genius. Some days are much harder than others especially with all the pressure that comes with it,  but you do what you can to get by.

@Drunkn167has been singing Jay's praises since he joined Casey.  Jade Rawlings probably kept his name front and centre for Taylor.

I think he may have a similar trajectory to one we did miss in Papley (although he’s no mental giant going by his election day interview).

However we’ve done quite well in this department of late. 

The dogs & pies would be asking why they missed out on Hannan & Hore, while we still managed to get Fritsch & Lockhart.

Not scared to have a ping at the goals

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
