Kennedy Harris was spudding it up at Casey today. Showing Goodwin what he really is like. Wagner had a very good game. I just don’t ever see him translate it at AFL level. Baker had some good moments today. 

JKH has been named in Casey's best for pretty much a month straight by the club's own staff, including today.

Deserves a shot based on that, despite previous AFL performances, as that's what competition for spots is meant to be about.

Yes Baker is a very good prospect for us. I would rather Kennedy Harris than ANB. Wagner was good and Jordan and Bedford will be players if we give them time to develop. Bradke also may be a find but needs a good few years to quietly develop.

Trade GUS!   I don't think so.  He has the yips  however he will need to regroup like many of our personnel in the side and kickstart after another preseason and be prepared mentally for 2020.  Gus is a professional and at the top of his game is a key weapon in the midfield.

Gus was injured today and most likely had to run out a corky in the butt and he was on the ground for a good 20 seconds. 

Maybe he needs a spell.  Why would you want to trade him ?  Who would you get ?   Is he going to be a better pickup?  NOT LIKELY. 

Bring this thread to the fore in 2020 if you need to. Lets wait and see what happens.

Hey mate, have a read of the OP. I know the context might seem different at the moment, but the original suggestion is that we look at trading a very good player to get another very good player(s) who could fill our desperate need for outside mids. It's not a thread designed to suggest trading him because he's no good.

I wouldn't trade him, but his defensive game is weak and a big problem.

I would not trade him. But he looks like he has mentally checked out.

Some have short memories, at his best last year Brayshaw was up there with one of the best midfielders of the game.

Needs a HUGE pre season to get his mind back on task.

I want to know what’s wrong with him and how fixable it is. How do you go from 3rd in the Brownlow to this? As inexplicable as going from 4th to 16th....

2018 is overrated as far as Brayshaw goes. Im a fan but he thinks he is far better than he is. At times I saw him on Dunkley today he looked completely lost. Brayshaw could do with a stint in Casey reserves.

I have read your OP and l can understand your reasoning. In my opinion,  Gus is  a valuable  asset and Whitfield l would say is out of our reach and that goes for many other clubs as well.

  Lever May and Whitfield and a host of our mains stayers  we might be juggling with the salary cap so to speak.

Overrated? So he fluked the whole thing?

He is going through what every other gun player go through in their career and thats a form slump. This is a huge learning curve for him. 

He is a 23 year old who has just ticked over 74 games. Lets at least wait until he hits 25 years old with 100 games under his belt hey?

We need better Coaches to drive a higher level of excellence 

These Kids have all been recruited from the same pathways. Our Coaches are not up to it

17 Clubs did Homework on us last Summer. Meth Coke did it in September and we have completely fallen over as a Club. 

That comes back to the Teachers. 

All the Assistants should walk after Round 23....

Has a player ever gone from 20 Brownlow votes to 0 the next season and yet still played all 22 games? If not, Brayshaw will be the first.

Agree ...we have some very bizarre ideas emanating  from the box.

Gus is a mid. It's  not really that hard...you'd think.

Brayshaw is very obviously carrying an injury, and has been the same all season. 

My guess( and it is only that) is the old OP.  Look how slow he was moving into the open goal, when run down by Dunkley.  This is not a player who is down on form, he is just struggling to run.

For those who think he should be in the middle, think why Jordan Lewis is playing in there instead.  He can run with others at the moment, or more to the point is better able to run with opposition mids than Brayshaw.

Neither should Hannan, ANB and a host of others like Lockhart, Dunkley, even Petty who should be at Casey being developed.  But we have NO-ONE capable to come in to replace from Casey. Only 6 players out of 10 AFL listed in their side yesterday had played an AFL game.

That would raise the question then of management (yet again).

If he has been carrying an injury all year, then why play him when we have JKH, C.Wagner, Baker and more recently Maynard all in good enough form to warrant selection and play his role? And if we're using Lewis as part of the scenario, why wasn't he in the team for a month?

Whether he's out of form or injured, he shouldn't be playing either way.

it begs a question:

Do you run someone into the ground ...or simply play some lucky kid who'll probably get thrashed...but might not.

From my cheap seats it's irresponsible in terms of player management to play Brayshaw if he is so afflicted atm.

He ought not be playing simply because he's bloody useless...the others are a different issue I guess

Brayshaw was solid to good in 2018. A third in a brownlow turned what was a good year, to many calling it a great year, resulting in Brayshaw being overrated. I like the kid and wouldnt trade him, but he has a lot of ground to make up. He looks slow, weak, disinterested, lazy and has been a turn over merchant of late. Are you suggesting we overlook his deficiencies and give him leniency because he is 23 years old?

No....but maybe laying off the kid may help. DL have a habit of finding a kicking dog. Now that Omac is not AFL and Watts is gone, and Petracca has shown a bit,  we have to cast our eyes around.

if Brad Hill & Ed Langdon are gettable, then we simply must put Brayshaw and pick 20 on the table. Maybe something coming back.

 

Put emotions aside, need to address deficiencies and make a big call. Goody has made the call already anyway with Oliver, Viney & harmes in the middle.

There is merit in it, but he isnt on his own in having an ordinary season.. most of them have. We will have pick 2 or 3 you would think,  we add them, we trade and draft smart we have a chance to climb again next year. 

There is aplayer on the list tat the moment, ANB that is by far the worst player to have played nearly 70 games for the MFC. It sounds harsh, and i know  he might try and might be a popular kid, but he does not have one redeeming football feature about him. Its a travesty that he gets a game. If the MFC decide to keep ANB on the list and delist Garlett then im done. and they will.. so im likey done. 

Also bringing Jetta back so soon was sign of desperation and sadly consistent stupidity. The end is coming very quickly for Nev like Jones. The game is too quick.

Brayshaw is a concern, but we have plenty of them, we should be getting rid of the no good, and getting the good to improve. If

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. 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. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public.

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020.

It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle.
