it'll be slippery

which is a bonus as the crows will fumble as much as us - lol

... so we should go with Weideman and tSmith as our talls...  as both will be better at ground level than Preuss'y, in these conditions...  unless they rest Maxy, which they won't.

Gotta play Preuss, just allows a complete rethink of our Forward "structure" and upsets their backs when Oliver/Jones/etc just bomb in junk

I'd wait,  until after Darwin.  

Bring in Lever and Preuss,  the following week... if they are both fit and perform well. 

Its time Preussy  'Starred'...  in the VFL,  instead of  'doing well'.

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.

He cost us sweet [censored] all. The guy he pushed out? off the list? back in 2017? I wont even bother looking to see who it was. It was a spud.

The guy who we would have drafted instead of him? With Pick 90? Good one.

We had Nathan Jones as the only leadership in the whole team and had a guy who had played in 4 flags who wanted to come to the club.

Watts? you bring up Watts? you think he could have played the plus 1 role? He played every [censored] position on the ground and he was a [censored] liability.

Oops. That's a thought that you would have been better keeping to yourself.

Why?

Typical comment that is easy to make but hard to justify.

What a con job this import turned out to be.  A guy past his peak, and the best coach of the modern era knew it.  Clarko has turned Hawthorn around and sped them up without a rebuild, and meanwhile a slow team got massively slower.

Lewis was so slow from day 1.  In fact, he slowed drastically in his last 2 years at Hawthorn.  When you're slow you have no other choice but to drop to your knees in a contest or belt the guy in frustration.  How many reportable incidents?  How many undisciplined 50 metre penalties?  His comments about umpire abuse just last week was the antithesis of leadership.  On the field, when we needed him to stand up in some way, in our most important game in a decade, he failed miserably and was universally awarded BOG.

This has been a train-wreck.  The tragedy is though, that if you stripped emotion ("he wants to come to Melbourne....yay") and rhetoric (leadership) away, it was always a stinker of a move.  Problem was that the club and most of our fans over-dose on emotion and rhetoric.

As Cornes said, no other club was anywhere near offering this bloke a 2 year, let alone 3 year deal.  With decisions like this, no wonder 2019 has been what it has been.

 

Leadership?  My sphincter.

 

I called this from day 1.  I love being in the 2% around here.

 

 

 

The team we belted in the finals last year.... While I'd say all agree we gave him 1 year to many, we had to get a player of his ilk into the club. He's let himself down a number of times and if the team was fully fit he'd be struggling for a game. Otherwise your post is over the top and nothing but negative as usual and your ego is hilarious Mr 2% pppfffttt.

I had to laugh at the 2% comment. Is that like a soft, past it Hell's Angel? 

It was particularly funny  given it presupposes TGR was actually correct in his position we should not have traded Lewis in. Which is plain wrong. He has been a terrific addition to the side. Which is 98% of people thought it was good move.

It absolutely has been a good move. As you say he would likely not be playing this season if we didn't have so many outs. That said it was instructive they elected to bring Spargo in instead of Lewis (who plays a very similar role to Salem) for Salem. Lewis then goes and clocks some fella in the VFL. Which is dead poor.

Apart from agreeing with TGR that that act was stoopid i also have to agree with his comments about Lewis on 360 saying Thomas should not have been cited for calling the ump a cheat. What bollocks. I couldn't believe it. He was all over the shop in his attempt to defend his position. No wonder because it was indefensible. If my son or daughter called an umpire a cheat i would be livid. Simply not on and crosses a line big time. Says a fair bit about where Lewis, a well known sniper, draws his lines.

I wouldn't be shocked if the club was similarly dismayed at his lack of leadership and that perhaps that was a factor in the decision to go with Spargo? If so his decision to get himself rubbed out wouldn't have done much to assuage the club's concerns.

I see you're not an advocate for diversity of opinion. There is no telling if TGR is correct in his assertion that Lewis shouldn't be drafted.  It's an opinion and one in hindsight that is easily defendable.  I give Lewis a bare pass but I can fully understand those blokes that think he should never have come to the club.  The fact that Lewis's addition to our list is so debatable actually shows that TGR, being in a small minority, had a lot more foresight than many given his addition was welcomed by most.

Cards I can't find the "worm" but it's a stretch to say we belted them.  My recollection is they were very close in the last quarter, perhaps a goal, and I was anxious (in an attempt to avoid the censor) that we'd lose. This was not belting.  A belting happened in the Preliminary a week later.

And we "had to get a player of his ilk into the club".  I'd like to see the justification of that!  In all the good that he may have done he's certainly demonstrated how to be an arrogant toool and look after your own best interests firsts.  I've seen nothing to suggest Lewis thinks the "team first" ethos at MFC is something he should follow.

Hodge was the player that would have been much more valuable.

Meh I don’t agree it’s been terrific, it’s been just ok for mine. He’s let himself and the team down badly at times and has really dropped off a cliff game wise. It was necessary but hasn’t gotten us over the hump and delivered the leadership to drive the young core to sustained success. 

Hahha TGR on his moped.

That's not the case BB but i see your point.

Perhaps I should have added 'in my opinion'  to my Which is plain wrong comment but in my defence it is a given that it is my opinion i would have thought. An opinion i would bet London to a brick Goody would agrees with given he picked him in his starting 22 all last year when he had other options

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    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. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    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 PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    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. That should never have happ

    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

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    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. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition
