Very similar average disposal number to Nathan Jones and a lot on DL calked for Jones to retire. 

Where to from here for Jack? 

Gets caught way too often.

Chance for him to show

Chance for him to show something different now that his old mans and Jones shadow are not hanging over him. Will be a better play IMO. Want to see him do smarter things and involve teammates more rather than doing it all himself. Tends to hunt and get his own ball rather than like Jones demanding everyone gives it to him these days. Lingering injuries have also scuppered him this season. Hope he gets a solid full pre season in.

Viney 3rd in the B&F is a solid indication of how the team went in 2019. 

He had a very average year. He is a tough unit, i admire that, but his skills were very average 

I don’t know why he is Captain, i hear him on the Demon Podcast and he is just a big kid. That is fine, but i think we can do better in the Leadership Department. He needed to lift the team in 2019 and i didn’t see it

interesting 2020 coming up

along with Oliver handballing to someone's feet and Viney getting caught with the ball it does say something about the coaching staff and their Band F voting.

A very underwhelming performance in a totally underwhelming year.

I hope we get to rate Goodwin in this activity

Take your point but as I understand the award the votes by the coaches are heavily weighted to team contribution,adherence to gameplan etc.

If Viney's efforts were so valued by the coaches it suggests to me that they set the wrong KPI's for him.

Stella year for Jack.....3rd in the B & F.

Congratulations!!!

I thought him very ordinary , yet finished 3rd in B&F ?? We also finished 17th under his and Jones leadership.

Needs r=to follow Jones and relinquish the Captaincy. Max to Captain in his own right!

Put the B&F voting in perspective.  If he had that season in 2018 he would have finished 13th one vote in front of ANB.  About where his season was imo.

I hope he bulks back up to return to the scary beast that he can be, ala 2018 when fit as per photo, as opposed to the skinny easily tackled runs out of energy version of 2019.

Needs to start eating properly again. Feel like he hasn’t played to his potential since we heard about the ‘fasting’ he does. 

Would also like to see him used purely as a tagger which would create a bit more variety in our centre square make-up. We’re a bit vanilla in there at the moment and a different approach from just one of the very similar type/style players would be worth looking at.

He’s not super slow at all. Albeit I feel he lost a bit of pace this year like most of our team.

Not sure there are (or have been) too many specialist taggers that have ever been super quick. If they were they wouldn’t be taggers.

Cameron Ling was a great tagger – not quick – as one example.

Was our arguably our most important player in last year's two finals wins. That was after how many weeks out? 

He is a proven performer with a pre-season under his belt. It's all he needs. Is a limited player, but his one wood at its best is almost unmatched.

    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
