Maybe so - not disregarding that, but I think Oscar's height might work to his advantage in ruck duels.

CLEARLY didnt not watch tonights game. he is a spud and will be making his way out for Steven May.

There is nothing tonight that justify any sense of support whatsoever. He was pathetic. 

You didn't answer the question, may, lever, petty and hore were not available so who would you play instead. And we kicked 1.8 in the last and your blaming Oscar for it??? The forwards lost this game but our backs. Tmac, Hannan, garlett were much worse then omac

Did we sack Todd Viney at half time and make O Mac our goal kicking coach in the second half?

For a lot on here it's just easier to blame the whipping boy then acknowledge the true cause of the result

Oh please, there were multiple reasons we lost. Set shot kicking is one. Oscars terrible performance was another.

Do you think he is a player we should continue persisting with? I have seen him take fresh airs at spoils at least 3 times this year. He is useless, zero intensity, zero footy nous, zero skills. What exactly is he good at besides being relatively tall?

Again, if we drop him who do you replace him with? May, lever, petty, hore?? Because none of them were available. 

We lost because we couldn't convert up forward, it's as easy as that. World I prefer a backline with may, lever, Jetta, hore in it, of course but I'm not having a go at the backline for this loss

Every player had a job to do.

The angst with Omac is not that he cost us the game. It is that in so many ways and in so many games, he has been found incapable of executing his role.

This deficiency has been highlighted for 3 years as we had no other options. We now appear to have better options, while Oscar has failed to develop despite numerous opportunities.

The day of reckoning has now arrived.

that's a simplistic view. we lost because we were the worse side. OMac was part of that. he got beaten in crucial contests, repeatedly and easily. poor game from him, even by his low standards.

I don't think we were the worse side at all. We just didn't convert, we kicked 1 goal 8 behinds in the last, even if we went 4.5 then most on here would be happy. I know a lot blame omac for everything, and I'm not saying he was great but we literally had no one else, and reading on here you'd think he had 10 kicked in him

He's the only player who had an individual topic dedicated to his performance tonight, with calls he never plays again. We don't have better options as they weren't available and if we kicked straight then we win by over 5 goals

With all due respect Red and Blue.......

The fact that you miss the point of this thread entirely seems to diminish the value of your contribution.

Do you not understand the words Oscar did not cost us the game?

I rarely post on this site, the blinkered opinions of many are simply not worth debating.

I travelled to Darwin and saw Oscar's positioning on his player long before the ball was delivered. He has a high IQ, but not for football. This thread is about improving the side, nothing else.

This thread is dedicated to Oscar costing us the game, I'm just saying that's not the case and we had no other real alternative to him. At no point have I said he played a good game, what cost us the game was bad kicking and bad forward play, but that's been overlooked in here

Honestly, I don't see the point in throwing more trash at him, he has been in only because of injuries to both of our first-choice key defenders. When May and Lever return, and with the development of Hore, return of Smith, and even the impending prospect of Petty overtaking him, Oscar's time and role at the club is in a twilight.

Railing against his presence in our best 22 is about as sensible as railing against the continuing of season 2019. We know the situation, we know it will end, we know there will be a new dawn.

Might as well as least let some peace flow in the meantime. Don't cling to bitterness.

Amen. 

I am sure we didn’t go get May because we thought Oscar was the next Scarlett. But May totally [censored] us by being fat and enjoying the [censored]. Let’s hope those shenanigans are behind us now and both May and Lever return soon to bolster our diabolical backline situation. Which lets not forget is also missing the best small defender in the comp in Jetta.

We talk about Oscar and for good reason, but I reckon Tom is on par with him. 

Oscar rarely manages to halve contests, let alone win them, while Tom rarely marks anything, let alone kicks goals. 10 from 11 games is a pathetic return for a player of his maturity. The delivery has been rubbish, blah, blah, blah, but he doesn't mark the bloody thing.

Seriously??? And play who? May was coming back from injury, lever, hore and petty were out. Plus at least he didn't turn the ball over every time he had it out of defence. He was no where near the reason we lost tonight, 1.8 in the last and stupid decisions going forward were

No offence R&B  I was a fan of OMAC and he has his faults. He is not cut out for AFL. He has lost more than his Mojo . and plays with no confidence . His mind is somewhere else.  Punched the ball away from himself when could have taken the mark in the last line of defence luckily it rolled over for a behind. More than most likely will be dropped. Keeps making the obvious. Foot skills are ordinary and has no intensity. He wasn't any better in his first 50 plus games and now he is worse than ever. Sorry Omac  you lost me.

Looked ok and thought he will improve in 2018 however he has gone backwards to a point of no return. Is there a miracle? I hope so but you are asking for the unbelievable.

I laughed when OMac went for a spoil when he was 1 on 1 with Betts. Could you imagine any other full back going for a spoil if 1 on 1 with Spargo?

Not sure why my intial thread got taken down but, so I'll keep this simple. 

Probably one of the worst AFL players going around and its time we see the last of this potato.

With May coming in next week i expect tonight we'll be the last we'll see him in a red and blue jumper.. ever!

Seriously??

We kicked 1.8 in last qrt

You want to hang the full back who was consistently let down by midfielders letting easy ball go into our defensive 50 leaving him  exposed without support

I'm not a big fan of Omac, but you're completely missing the real issue

Have no scientific basis for this, but Oscar appears to have no fast twitch muscle fibres. He has no power. No intensity, no grunt, everything is done at one pace, slow motion.

He was an embarrassment tonight and had been all year.

Historically he's done a decent job on Jenkins, which tells you he's even worse this year than previously. 

No physicality in the contest
No intercepting or strong play
Zero creativity or drive with the ball 

Like so many Melbourne players he did a few nice things in the VFL and was then promoted to a locked in spot in the senior side. At least now he should get the chance to show he can dominate at Casey. Maybe if he can he could have a future at AFL level.

And just to think he has played what over 50 games??? Hnmm reason why MFC are no closer to success than in 64!!

Putrid player!

In the tight games that we have lost over the past 3 years, OMac has generally been the reason.

When we have been easily defeated, OMac has been an opposition 'surety' to ramify forward dominance. 

In the games we have won, OMac has been unsighted except for clangers.

Get him off the field immediately. He is targeted, weekly, by opposition coaches and players as an easy-beat; he is an avenue to goal for all of the teams we have played this year.

Goodwin, we do not need him - and after all of these losses, he still gets a game to weaken our few onfield advantages.

    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?

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

    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
