Jordan Lewis suspended for 1 week.

Recommended Posts

I'd rather see us put games into the kids to be honest (Petty, Baker, Lockhart etc), his form has been putrid anyway and his lack of discipline throughout, including the momentum sapping pre lim should see him retire or stay at Casey. He's way too slow and fumbly for the senior side now, if he wants to continue on then let him train Sparrow, Chandler, Jordan, Bedford up at Casey so they're equipped for senior footy.

Plus, he probably didn't want to go to Darwin. Too hot for an older body. It drains what little energy you have left.

Probably an element of truth to that.

I'm sure he'd rather be at home with his family as opposed to flying up for 6 hours and playing a meaningless (in the context of our season) game in 28 degree heat

I get amazed that people only able to see Lewis as good or bad.  I've never been a fan and said so early in his first year but it's silly to suggest he was a bad trade and he didn't bring some good things to the list and team.  He's played some useful footy but he's never been great.

My major disappointment with him has been his complete lack of discipline and on-field leadership.  He's helped "direct traffic" at times and he's offered stability down back but leadership is "do what I do".  He's exceptionally selective if and when he goes, he's given away countless dumb 50 meter penalties (remember the first game last year against Geelong that may well have cost us the game and a top 4 spot), he smashed Cripps behind play leading to suspension and arguably a spot in the 8 that year and he's acted like an arrogant twatt when questioned publicly on this lack of discipline.

On balance I wouldn't change the Club's decision but he should and could have offered a whole lot more.  Many here are excusing his latest indiscretion on the basis he wouldn't have been much good in Darwin, well I argue he could have been exceptionally valuable to the Casey side helping our very inexperienced youngsters learn and progress.  The Club is more than the 22 in the seniors and he has let it down time and time again. When comparing Lewis at MFC and Hodge at Brissy is damning to Lewis.

I think he should stay at Casey for the rest of the year given where we are. With players coming back that's the most likely outcome.

TBH, I can't think of a Melbourne player I've liked less but that doesn't mean I don't recognize some of the good things he's done for us.

Fan,

 

I concede that his kickouts are elite.  I concede that he finger-points very well after the dam-wall has busted against us.  I concede that he comes with some pluses.

The problem is he was always going to make a slow team slower.  The other issue is that that his main brief was "leadership".  How can someone who can't control himself on-field with 50's and suspensions be given a pass for on-field leadership.

You are fence-sitting a bit.  The thing I ask you is that turn the clock back 2.5 years, and what, you would do it again?

 

 

This has and always was an epic fail.  If we wanted leadership, get leadership that makes us more competitive on-field.  I said at the time, Boomer Harvey was the one we should have got.

I don't take issue with what you've said but I'd do it again.  Was Harvey available? I doubt it.  What a shame Hodge wasn't the one we got.

But IMO we were extremely unlikely to win a flag in Lewis's window (2 years) and he offered more than pick whatever in the ND.  He did play some good games, he gave MFC a profile to attract others and many of the players have spoken of how good he is off the field.

From the outside it's hard to tell but I give the trade a bare pass.  As you say and I've said his on field leadership has been disgraceful both in his unwillingness to put his body on the line and his lack of discipline.  I don't see how so many haven't seen it, but we're all different. I hope Goodwin has made a point of him to the group pointing out how his suspensions and 50m penalties have hurt the team and this is not acceptable.

But I won't miss him when he's gone. He's a Hawthorn player (and what would you expect after 4 flags) who used us for superannuation.  Big win for Lewis, bare break even for us.

There, is that strong enough for you Rono?

Agree no point playing him anymore.  no chance of finals give a kid a go.  Thanks for your service Jordon great career  but so long and thanks.   Played one year year too long  which is often the case.

Picks 48 and 66 for Lewis, 57 and 68

That's what we gave up for him. Essentially a drop down the order by 9 spots and 2 spots. Basically nothing at all.

The crux was a 3 year contract. A lot of posters knew that we would get little value out of his third year. He is suspended for one match when it was unlikely he was going to play seniors anyway.

You make it sound like he cost us a pizza box.

What about coin? 600k? 700k?

What about the guy the pushed out?  The '+1' gig really in 2017 and 2018, was the easiest in football.  Watts would have smashed it, and provided plan b, c and d options.

You never know who didn't get the opportunity and security of a spot in the team either.  Not directly related but we had a guy playing for Casey 2nds that is playing for a team that is vying for top 6 this year.

Fair go!

While Lewis is (almost) cooked, he's a 300 game 4x Premiership player who's provided great leadership and guidance to a young team

God help us if we'd managed to draft another (+1) Pick 48 who'd be turning 22 this year and probably playing at East Ringwood

Watts was a waste of space at our place and took us for a ride,  as he's done over there.   Watts is about watts.  and the rest can fest'r...  C'n it time and again,  and we are stronger since his time.

I'm glad Lewis is with us,  even if he came from the Brown and Gold.

He's become a 300 gamer, with the Dees.

Regardless of whether or not he was getting a game this season, I’d like him more if we were winning. I hold him solely responsible for our injury crisis.

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place.

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic.
