The Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti Thread

Recommended Posts

Interesting that he has been out of contract for so long. Always assumed that Don's would sign him on (and I still think they will). Has struggled for parts of this year and famously struggles to score if the dons aren't playing well on the day..  but still would offer some pace/spark that we need up forward.

In a high contested team that thrives on forward half pressure, he would be a great fit. Adds pace and can kick straight 😂

Hold the phone: a small forward that goes missing when the rest of his team does? wow!

Would think it's a contract issue (money level and perhaps term)...

Surprised that he hasn't had the pre-signing form improvement that so many MFC players experience.

may as well give the Bombers a little salary cap problem by making an offer. Garlett's money is there to be used.

So how do you rate Hunt or not 'small' enough?

Or you just prefer a bit of negativity

Did i set your "disrespect alarm" off again Saty?

He is no more a "Small" than CP5. In fact he is taller.

Surely you must have known that.

Or do you just like a argument?

P.S. Dont bother, we already know the answer.

Saty. I admire your red and blue blood through-and-through attitude, but a guy is allowed to express an opinion without it being construed as a knock (“negativity”) on every player on our list, surely.

Dons would surely get his signature before end of season, their supporters would riot.

But if not, would absolutely go for him without hesitation! Inside 50 pressure and goals, absolute gold for our needs.

Facts M8. 

Look at em.

They're good for ya. 

We're the least effective forward-line in the AFL. 

No amount of training you attend will change that.

Would take him gladly if he was open to leaving. He’s the type of pacey small forward we need and a big upgrade on the likes of Spargo, Nibbler, Hanna etc

you're right but it would be fun making an open play for him and seeing the bomber fans sweat.

As I mentioned before at the very least it would play a little havoc with their salary cap.

You’re right Saty. After Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti’s performance today I’d rather Hunt.

Cherry picking individual games isn't a sound method for managing a team list. But I guess you knew that.

I’ve seen him play like this more than once. I believe he tore us a new one when we played them. In fact he’s done it to us numerous times. Today’s just another example of the quality player he is.

Same Height as Petracca at 186cm. I’d hardly call him a ‘small’ forward. He doesn’t play as one either.

Who would you rather Spargo, or Tippa?? Other than Jeffy who I still rate, he is an upgrade on any thing similar. And No... Hunt aint really a Forward !!

    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

    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.

    AINT THAT A CRYING SHAME by The Oracle

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
