Demon Forever

Farewell Sam Frost

Recommended Posts

I hope Frosty stays, at a fair price - he had a great year and tried his guts out in all 22 games, which is more than I can say about most of the boys. We need guys who leave it all on the park each and every week.

Sure there's a little bit of Frost Ball, but I think that's a small price to pay for the other things he does. Plus, if some of our boys did their share, the ball wouldn't be down there in the circumstances that it was so often this year.

I'm not convinced Frost can be coached to be anything more than he currently is, which means he cannot play on a wing, he cannot play up forward or on the ball. He's a defender. A very handy defender, but if he was traded for another key position defender, we haven't lost rebound out of defence, we've lost a player that can keep Brown to 2 goals and limit Hawkins impact in a final quarter - which we would want to replace with another player. If we want rebound out of defence, we should be looking at players than can rotate between wing, midfield and half back, or even half forward, players with skill by foot primarily, and just enough pace to evade a tackle. Players that have the tank to gut run up and down the G and help out their key position defenders who hold the fort/outer rim of press

I think you are too fixated on the running aspect of his game. I am happy for him primarily to be the number two defender and nullify the Browns and Hawkins.

One paper says we have lowballed him, while another quotes his manager who says we haven't offered him anything as yet but things look positive. 

I don't know who to believe, but it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Maybe we offered him a performance based contract, $10K for every effective kick.

Clearly Frosty thinks he might be better off taking the $400K upfront than work on his kicking 😄

If we offer him a performance based contract on pure exhilaration he would be our highest paid player.

Maybe not on exhilaration, but on heart-rate there would be no contest!

I would be sad to see him go. I actually think he could do alright in the forward line, crashing packs and putting the pressure on. He showed glimpses in the last game at the G when he got moved up there

His kicking is to unreliable to become a forward

Sadly that puts him on a par with the rest of our forwards.

it's barely reliable enough to have him in the backline

this eulogizing of frost surprises me a bit tbh

he's no better than a 'good, ordinary' player, not the star that some are making out

he has a dip, the #frostball drives me to distraction, and for every two good things he does i reckon there's five genuine wtf moments

Classic Melbourne.

Frost is no super star but at least we gets on the park each week and provides us with some run and dash which we severely lack.

He looks really good galloping out of the backline with ball in hand

 

 

 

until he turns it over and it goes back over his head for a goal.

I won't be too upset if he goes, he's only depth when we have a fully fit list so depends what we get for him

He took a mark directly in front and kicked it further away from goal than towards it. He is what he is.

Frost is a liability, as long as he is in best 22 we aren't going anywhere. Not to say he isn't in our best 22 however, just that if he is we wont be challenging for a flag.

DISAGREE  a host of other Dees who HAVE CONTRACTS are as useful as an Ashtray in a motorbike

FROSTY BIG KEEPER IMV

we are 17 so only GC can trump us for Langdon

He just puts his price out there. Freo can have some steak knives if need be. Stretch/JKH or similar.

Hawks could get trumped by 8 odd clubs for Frost.. very different

This gets brought up every year and it never happens. Supporters like to think they'll get something for nothing but clubs are far more intelligent with their dealings with other clubs, especially ours.

I don’t disagree with that, so do you think adding another unreliable kick would help

The video is cut short. After he won the free kick he promptly kicked the ball out on the full missing a bloke 15m away.

makes for a good video grab though

He's improved since this. We'd be mad to get rid of him.

He'll be our best defender within 3 years I reckon.

His disposal has improved steadily this year.

100% agree. Yes he is entertaining, frost ball and all and I do love his dash out of the back line. But let's be honest Frosty leaks goals and plays an unaccountable defensive game at times (defending in front, running off his man etc). He is a run of the mill key defensive position player. 2nd rounder to swap for Langdon.

Yeah let’s trade a player who has SPEED because we have soo many other players who are fast. He is obviously surplus to our needs. 

Bloody [censored].

Frost definitely improved this year and was certainly top 10, maybe even top 5, but we finished 17th. Anyone saying they'd be shattered or what have you, if he left, has completely lost touch with reality.

He still gives up almost as many goals as he saves.

If Sam wants a better offer and we can get a more solid best 22 player in, pull the trigger.

This from the Hun

SAM FROST

Melbourne has seriously lowballed the out-of-contract key defender, who looks certain to reject that contract offer and join a third AFL club. It emerged last night that North Melbourne — following Scott Thompson’s retirement — could overtake Hawthorn as a suitor with both clubs targeting key defenders

Excellent
