Jon Patton

Recommended Posts

Anyone the Hawks are interested in, we should also be doing our due diligence on. 

“The General” was on an upward form curve prior to his knee injury last year and word is his prospects of a full comeback at AFL level are better than good. And he’s coming out of contract.

A genuine tall marking target who can kick 50+ goals, bust packs and straighten up the side must be recruiting priority number one heading into 2020. With this type of player and some quick classy mids in the draft I believe we can bounce right back into contention in 2020.

Watch Weid, Tracc, TMac and the Melky Bar Kid walk a foot taller with a fit Jonno Patton commanding the forward 50. 

Risk v Reward is massive with this guy. What would it take in trade to get him? Start the bidding at our 2nd round pick?

“I don’t have the mindset to just come back and play, my mindset is to come back and win a premiership and potentially be an All-Australian forward. I feel if I fulfil my potential I can be one of the best forwards in the league.”

Once someone is linked to a hawks you might as well walk away.. They are so ruthless and just know how to get the job done.

Hawks are also going very hard for Coniglio. No doubt will get him too. [censored].

Wouldn’t Hawks need to fill their quota of first round draft picks taken?

Prefer Jeremy Cameron...

Has the edge over Patton where it counts playing as a key forward (career averages)...

> Marks inside 50 (elite)

> Marks on a lead (elite)

> Score involvements (6.4 per game!)

> Goals (2.6 per game... elite).  Finished 7th for average goals scored per game 2018 (just  behind T-Mac) and presently leading the Coleman.

Free agent.  No brainer.

Good point you make, unless I’m mistaken (can happen) they haven’t used a first round pick since 2015.

Cameron is better than Tom Lynch and he went for around $1.4M back ended as I understand from the reports.

Very serious money

Prefer Whitfield.

As good as he is the greater priority for us is a key forward. Can’t go into 2020 with current personnel in the forward half. 

We will have a top 4 pick to draft a quick midfielder with. Quite possibly pick 1.

 But how come they are always cashed up? Everyone plays for peanuts down there.  O’Meara, Mitchell, Wingard, “he who shall not be named”, McEvoy, Chip, are all on Newstart. Smith, Roughy on the pension?

Cognilio as a FA and Rowell or similar as 1st round pick would help us more than a kneeless, highly priced KPF.

Both those guys would be great but who do you propose we kick the prune to inside F50 next year? What’s your solution?

His knee doesn’t appear to be putting off Hawthorn.

Better delivery inside 50 will lead to goals. Tmac and Weid have had horrid delivery. Games are won in the midfield, the 666 rule has emphasised this. But I guess you knew that.

What I know is that we kicked 1 goal from 28 entries to close out Thursday night’s debacle. What I know is that TMac has kicked 3 goals for the year, Weid 5. In 6 games. But I guess you also knew that.

How is it that Hawthorn are always cashed up and don’t go to the draft in the first round? My understanding is that they have to go to the 1st round this year as they have traded their picks the last few years. It’s amazing how we sell the farm for average players and they get stars for next to nothing.

Thanks for proving my point 

Name one of our mids with A grade foot skills, partic inside 50 delivery? Oliver comes closest, but no cigar. Salem and Fritter are playing back. The rest are average to poor. What hope do our forwards have?

Cognilio and Rowell/Anderson/Young would be a massive improvement going inside 50

Patton can't get on the park, would command $800k pa and cost a 1st round pick in trade. But sure, I'll go with your call.

FMD...

If you think the quality of entries is the sole reason Weid and TMac can’t mark the footy you’ve got rocks in your head. You’re way too forgiving.

Or maybe you’re right and that Clarko is a mug when it comes to recruiting.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
