Foes the MFC or Casey teitter account disabled?

Absolutely poor coverage once again from our pathetic media team.

It’s a VFL practice match Dazzle. 

I wouldn’t expect too much.

Carryover emergency : Hore

Goal scorers : 2 Stretch, T.Smith, Keilty, Gent 1 Preuss, Chandler, C.Wagner, Munro

TEAM

B: WHITE, HUTCHINS, TYNAN

HB: J.WAGNER, PETTY, MUNRO

C : BAKER, MAYNARD, MCCAFFERY

FOLL: PREUSS, STRETCH, SPARGO

IC: STOCKDALE, STEPHENSON, D.COLLIS, W.COLLIS, M.LEWIS, WALE-BUXTON, D.FRITSCH, GAHAN

 

SPARGO: Disappointing, slow start got into it a little bit but is a long way from a senior recall.

BEDFORD: Quiet done a few good defensive things finds it hard to find the ball.

STRETCH: Had a blinder he was everywhere and kicked 2 goals very close to senior selection.

MAYNARD: Nothing to write home about really a few good inside things but he isn't playing near his best like he did a few years ago.

PREUSS: Beat his opponent in Zac Smith but needs to do more around the ground.

BAKER: Just a game done a few good runs but that was about it.

PETTY: A class above Oscar should be in the side. Done everything right.

CHANDLER: A work in progress but showed some good signs.

T.SMITH: After a slow start worked into it Pretty well, missed a few shots but kicked 2.

C.WAGNER: Fantastic game but let's himself down by foot sometimes.

J.WAGNER: Really good second half a solid backman.

KEILTY: After a good start realitively quiet took some good marks.

McCaffery spent the second half on the bench not sure if injured.

Good to see Hutchins at full back as solid as ever don't play him forward again.

I'd rather wait and bring him in when he is smashing the door down, full of confidence.

A backline of May, Lever and Petty is so much more inspiring than with OMAC and Frost in there.

I think some context is required when discussing Petty.

He was playing in a VFL practice match, it's a massive step up to AFL.

I think Petty will absolutely become a permanent fixture of our backline in the future. He's 197cm, agile for a big man and from what I've seen reads the play well and has decent disposal.

But he is not ahead of OMac or Frost yet and should continue to develop at VFL level this season unless we have a ridiculous amount of injuries (fingers crossed).

FYI I'm looking forward to a back 6 next season of:

Jetta         May       Lever

Hibbo       Petty      Salem

Agree, especially when coupled with @WERRIDEE's well known 'love' for OMac and Frost.

I prefer Frost I still like his speed and could be a good match up on Rohan. Oscar gives us nothing.

Thanks to @WERRIDEE for scores and goalkickers. Assume the club might have some sort of bash at VFL coverage once the real stuff starts, but given that the last two weeks have been trial games for senior selection in all but the award of premiership points their commitment to telling people what's going on has been pox.

You can say that again DD.  Our backline would probably be the worst in the AFL right at this moment.

thanks Werridee!

So you would think Stretch will be looked at.  could he play the small fwd/crumber role we are desperately in need of??

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 19

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the
