Tomlinson and Langdon are locks. 

 

Not sure if you have answered this one already but was Elliot the second free agent you were referring to in earlier posts ?

Down at Collingwood they call Elliott ‘Basil’ so he could well be the player D11 was speaking about.

As long as it's not Zempilas, I don't care who it is...

I haven’t seen a lot of Greater Waste of Space games to be honest, but Saturday nights game was a Cracker, except for Tomlinson, who was just awful. I hope he just had a bad game. we need real recruits, not the usual NQR opposition cast offs which has been the norm for so long. (Craig Turkey, The Cockatoo Collins twins, Tom Gillies, Shannon Byrnes as a few examples)

Maybe he has checked out of the Franchaise already, which would be a bad sign.

Finals maketh careers, attitude is what we need, the rest can be taught. 

i hope he plays in the Preliminary Final to redeem himself, i will be watching him closely

He's not in the best 5-10 players you'd have in any team, but is a very hand 15-22 type guy, a real role player. He's also not a cast off either, the giants want to keep him but he's been squeezed out because of the re-signing of Cogs and the need to have cash for Cameron and Whitfield next year. Certainly wasn't his best game, but I wouldn't be judging a player off 1 game alone.

That was the 8th final he's played in if that's the only criteria, and he was probably GWS's best in the 2017 prelim.

No doubt he had a shocker, no debate there. But you previously said that finals maketh careers and that you don't watch much GWS, so trying to give some context to what he has achieved in past finals is relevant. If you're just going to argue about the only game you've seen him in, then really you're a bit irrelevant to this discussion.

what a player does season to season is one thing - Form

Club Culture is a cumulative thing, it grows

55 years of no success defines the Club at this point. 

What Tomlinson did in 2017 is irrelevant, his form on Saturday was putrid. i hope he gets a chance to redeem himself

not when a player plays so poorly. his past form is irrelevant in that situation. 

But that is my opinion 

The example of David Warner is rather apt right now. 

His form prior to 2017 is completely irrelevant to his output in the ashes series just completed

Tomlinson played just 56% of the game on the weekend. Difficult to have an impact with such low time on ground.

Yeah so true. If Dangerfield has another poor game by his standards then I don't rate his as a footballer. What he's done in finals in previous years means nothing ey SWYL..

The current group at the club is defined by the time they've been there and what they've done in that time.

That's a pretty ordinary comparison, cross sports normally are, but plucking out a guy who was suspended for 12 months then came back and played badly is a stretch - Smith also was picked on his form prior to 2017, how'd he go? 

Tomlinson played all 22 H&A games, but you've dismissed them and said only finals are relevant, and then only the final that you've watched is relevant. I really hope the footy club put more work and thought into selecting players/trading/drafting than you do!

the players are only one part of the Club, yes  The Engine, but they are an ongoing part of the Club...

72 Years of no success defined The Swans until 2005. those 22 players shall always be the “special ones”

Same goes for Footscray. they went 62 years until 22 players broke the drought.

i look at the big picture. September is a new Competition 

Warner’s form today is irrelevant now as to what it was. it has nothing to do with different sports. it’s pure psychology. he is completely shot batting at Test Level.

Getting back on topic, i reiterate I hope Tomlinson can redeem himself next weekend

”One is only as good as your last performance”

 i believe that statement to be correct, maybe you don’t

In your mind maybe, but the executive individuals at the club - the staff and players are only defined by their own careers.

What happened at MFC in 1965 has NOTHING to do with what will happen in there in 2020.

I know from your posting over the years that this is something you cannot understand.

Talk about contradicting yourself! 

In one post you're saying a club is defined by its past and now you're saying "one is only as good as your last performance"! 

Neither are true.  Have a think about it ...

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    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
