Jack Watts - let’s get him back

Recommended Posts

Jack Watts would be laughing at the MFC & thanking his lucky stars that he left.

Could never understand why we got rid of him especially when the year before he won 2 games off his own boot & is considered one of the best kicks in the game......something that our current list of players cant do....

Staggering.....

Yeah, because Port have been sensational since he arrived.

I shouldn't be responding, should I?

And after he finished 5th and gave the speech where he said 'I'm usually sitting down there [censored], I need to do better' he came back out of shape and was promptly dropped for the JLT games.

Football fraud.

Ha you haven't thought hard about this comment have you.

This is the same Jack Watts that came out  publicly last year and said he was hurt knowing the Dees were playing finals last year.

He's played 2 games this year and his own club yet AGAIN have missed out on finals.

Yeah he would be laughing alright ... 🤦‍♂️ only thing that's laughable is your post👎👎

ha ha 

JW has gone to a club that actually cares about him.....JW has gone to a club that has won 6 more games than us this year......

JW has gone to a club that isn't a basket case & he's gone to a club that isn't the laughing stock of the AFL.

Sure he has made some lifelong friends at the MFC & friends he would still associate with, but really......you reckon he misses us.....Pft

Stop pretending like we are some sort of destination club.

Stop pretending like we are some sort of destination club. 

Please point this out where in any form have I remotely mentioned that we are a destination club?

Our club cares a lot about Jack the footballer but Jack the person. But when you are 27 years old and 150 games of experience and still getting a serve to work hard and put in then that says to me a lack of dedication from Jack.

He's goes to Port Adelaide a year after and this so called club that cares about him also drops him due to poor form. Funny that?

You're embarrassing yourself. Good for [censored] and giggles, but I'd stop ahead if I was you.

Ordinary footballer who was as soft as butter. Good luck though. That's where it stops.

NO, he is another player that has an injury just like Elliot. One day in some future century we might consider drafting an uninjured player or recruit. This same player may even be able to handball and kick with some degree accuracy.

Say what you want about Watts, but we currently have two key forwards on our list, neither of whom have played since round 16.

In the past three post seasons Goodwin has presided over the departures of Watts, Hogan, Pedersen, T.Smith and Keilty and has brought in the grand sum of zero tall forwards. Our forward line was a complete shambles this year.

At some point we are going to need to recruit some key forwards who are ready to play. They don't grow on trees, so I'd like to see a list of better options that could be available if we ask the right questions.

Not sure about the laughing but agree with the second paragraph.

He'd be cheap and, if the penny has dropped (for him), he could be a valuable MFC forward asset.

Definitely worth a discussion.

I don't know if you're trolling or not Ron, but I'd be thrilled if he came back to us.  He is strong everywhere that we are weak.  His kicking is as good as any in the league and most importantly he was the number one player in the league for retaining possession with inside 50 passes.  He would love playing off HB as the spare tall/intercept marker alongside Lever and May.  It's his best position and we saw this year how well he plays it. 

As for his contested work.  He went 1-3 against Weed, TMac and The Bull in a marking contest and absolutely destroyed them.  He's not a contested beast, but he does ok. 

Sadly, in my view, this will never happen.  From what Ihave seen from Goodwin, he is almost incapable of acknowledging an error of any sort when it comes to his judgement or his coaching ability.  Even an experienced, successful, confident, proven, successful senior coach would have difficulty coping with an admission of poor judgement and poor leadership re the JW departure.  Gooowin is currently none of these.  Let's hope he us capable of learning a lesson.

Happy memories for me from that match. Was the last time I had a sense of smugness at a Dees vs Pies game.

Must have watched this reply 1000 times mainly to annoy my husband.

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
