DazzleDavey36 - I will tell you why it got taken down - it is called "trolling" and if this harmful abuse from you continues I suggest lawyering up because you will need one I would suspect.

Bahahah this has to be taking the [censored]? Lawyering up for what exactly? Saying that he is an ordinary footballer who wont be playing senior football once May and Lever are in?

[censored] spare me..

Dazzle, with all due respect, this kind of crapp is really pathetic.

Whilst Omac has not had a great year and is very low in confidence, he is not the main reason we lost last night or any other game this year.

He looked completely different in 2018, had more good games than poor. Something has changed. I'd rather the club find out what is causing this and fix it. We've burned the development of too many players in the past. 

Have i mentioned once he is the sole reason we havr lost games? No. We lost last night because out inability to take our opportunities in front of goal.

This is a football forum and i dont and never have rated Oscar. He has such low football IQ and has not given me any thought  that he has improved as each year goes by. Slow, weak and panics when left one on one as shown against Jenkins when he got done numerous times for holding the man. At one stage he was manned against the 172cm Betts and yet he chose to spoil instead of trying to out mark him using his 196cm 100kg frame.

There is the usual hyperbolic rubbish on here about Omac.

The reality is that he is not of the required standard.

His athletic limitations are his greatest downfall.  He is frighteningly slow and lacks strength.  He would also have to be one of the slowest on an an Afl list getting the ball to hand or foot.

 I don't blame Oscar, he is doing his best, it is simply a lack of talent, not application.

Full credit to him for eking out an Afl career with these severe limitations.

So where's your thread on our terrible kicking for goal? Or the thread on spilled easy marks inside 50? Or the thread on our poor delivery i50? I would've thought that to be more thread worthy than continually getting stuck into one player.

You stated no one was blaming any loss on Omac and I provided a clear example of a poster who did.

Threads that incite trolling against a single player are by far the worst part of Demonland.

Only getting a game because of injuries.  Not AFL standard much like a lot of players on this list.  Both him and his brother should be in the VFL.

The thing omac hasn't adjusted to this year is the way we've been forced to defend. We had been playing a zone and recruited may and lever specifically to work within a zone structure but they haven't been available so we've gone back to a more 1 out defensive model. Works great for Frost because he needs a job which is why he's improved. Omac didn't have the strength or speed to play 1 on 1 all game but fits in well when all the defenders are relying on each other. Get may and lever back and if he's in the team as well I'm sure omac will play a lot better

Hasn't this been the theme of topics on demonland this year? There are enough threads on our poor kicking for goal and also our connection between mid and forward. Its our year in a nutshell.

In regards to the poster blaming Oscar for the loss then yes i agres with you that we shouldn't  be blaming an individual on last night. I dont believe in individuals costing teams games. Its what goes on in that 120 minutes from a whole  team perspective. Again.. this is not what this thread is about 🤦‍♂️

But RBR he hasn't adjusted to our zone even when we started it from the Paul Ross transition to Goodwin. Its only the past 2 years that the coaching staff have realised this and gone after May, Lever and even Hore to an extent because of their ability to zone off and intercept well. 

I look at someone like Marty Hore who has adjusted seamlessly like a 100 game veteran with his intercept marking and zoning off to give others a chop out. He is s beauty and have loved watching his development ever since he came back into the Sydney game after an ordinary VFL game.

It’s a team sport and games are generally not won or lost by the performance of one individual irrespective of whether they play well or poorly

However, anyone who has played any team sport before will know that when certain people fail to do what most consider to be the basics at a reasonable standard it is demoralising for the team 

- missed goals from very gettabke positions 

- avoiding contact because it’s easier not to

- getting beaten in one on ones too easily etc ....

we see this regularly with our current team and that is the reason we are where we are at on the ladder

Evidence says we made the prelim last year, With omac as part of the zone. So to say omac never adjusted is just wrong. We recruited may and lever so that zone went to the next level. I suspect we only drafted hore because of the injury to lever. It's a great pick up and I'm hoping hore and lever will be able to play together, but he's been given the licensee this year to zone off while they've been giving Frost and omac assignments each week. That's great for Frost because he needs that but doesn't play to omac's strengths

Out bodied every time he's in a contest.

At least OMc keeps out-bodying his opponent,  so he's in front...  keeping his opponent between him and the goal...  Tis just a pity that the opposition keep kicking the ball over Omc's head.!

Maybe he's a forward,  in someone else's body ?

Just saw the score after landing in Sydney, damn I’m gutted.... what happened????

I suspect you actually know where the weak spot was on the field that allowed opposition goals to result -  as the ball passed through it. A tactic many coaches are using when scoring is so vital to save a game against the Demons.

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.

Well said, LG.

Same old problem with Oscar. Amazing it has taken people so long to see what has been glaringly obvious since day1. 

No intensity. Incapable of of winning one on ones.. constantly outbodied. Slow. No turning circle. Can't jump. Ineffective spoiler. No football brain.

other than that he is reasonably tall. Is a neat kick and a good bloke.

do we have mid season de list?

Demonia , I do think O'Mac needs to play in a different position, other than defence and to do this in the reserves. Oscar may be pathetic at this point in time however there are others in the same boat. I don't get the selectors motive not to play Preuss, it is woeful to say he was left out because of the condition up north. Basically we are forced to select a team who cannot play the MCG.

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.

The forwards worked hard, built their confidence, got a handy but well-deserved (and earned) lead in the game against the Crows. Then the Crows began a series of mini-rallies, chipping away at the Demon lead that they were confronting. An avenue to goal was required to improve their scoring chances - and they took it with reliable frequency. Just as several coaches and senior players in Demon opposition teams have done across the past few years.  Our players chip in during the hard, injury-riddled times, attempting to provide gap coverage down back, support and risky teaming across the weaker spots. The balance of the game changes. The forwards begin to see less of the ball and the rest of the team become desperate to get the ball 'down there' for a score. Forward delivery wanes in quality and quantity. Another loss looms large. When just one opposition forward blossoms in a game - but often two or three as a nett effect - the avalanche of scoring freedom results. We lose.

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

Oscar has been the ‘whipping boy’ for all of this year.  Most of the time he was exposed because the midfield defence was third rate.  He had some good games, but was overwhelmed.

In Darwin he was simply not good enough.  Whether he is hearing May’s foot-steps, or whatever, but he was poor, panicked, gave up position, gave up free kicks and was generally looked spooked being out there.

He has busted his guts for the club, and I will not call him a ‘spud’ or whatever.  He has played some good roles and good games in his time.  For that we should all appreciate him.

However, with May available and dominating at Casey, I suspect OMAC should go back to Casey and get himself sorted out.  He actually is a good disposer of the ball, and perhaps if he has a third man up role from the flank he could add real value.  I see Frost acting as a rebounding half back or even winger, with his run, whereas OMac is challenging Lever and Hore for perhaps that role.

Either way, I wish him well, and hope he puts massive pressure on top 22.

    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.

    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 - 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).

    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.

    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.

    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

    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,

The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points.
