Other than May, Max, Hibberd, Jack and Trac and a special mention to Lockhart you can take your pick on who you want dropped but Fritter, Hannan, Picket, Jackson and TMac can all go . Basically that's our forward line and Weeds also. They all as far as I'm concerned should be playing netball and still would't even get the round ball. Most of this team are soft co..s. Jones is also finished. Sick and tired of these blokes jogging around by themselves with no attempt to assist. Make a statement MFC or your doomed to remain as could have beens.

I don’t know if I’d leave Brayshaw out just play him where he played so well in 2018 in the centre .

Dropping some players might make a small, one off statement, but as has been the case for 18 months, it's not going to fix us.

Only proper change across our coaches and players, will fix us.

(But I'd start with dropping TMac and telling him he doesn't get gifted another game until he earns it).

You start with Harmes and Brayshaw, then fritsch and Hannan, work your way to tmac and Jones.

Some pretty bad body language on the bench Jones Brayshaw and Goodwin there is something going on there 

Bring in Bedford, Jordan, Bennell, Rivers, tomlinson.

 

I'm sick of seeing same names producing the same crap

Agree.

But a few have to go:

Jones - too slow 

Harmes - out of form

Hannan - when he is bad, he is awful

Pickett - not ready

In:

Rivers

Bennell

VDB poor skills but at least gives 100% aggression 

ANB 

Dropping 5 or more rarely works!

TMac on borderline

Keen to understand Lockhart? 

I thought Lockart was pretty good. He showed a lot more competitiveness than people on 7 times his salary !!!!

The damage was done when the ball turned over around 1/2 fwd, centre because of poor decision making/skills not AFL level. The resulte was a grey swarm going down the ground and the defenders got overwhelmed.

Tom Sparrow can play so let’s play the kid at half back. Harmes on ball. 

Vanders for Jones.  

Fritsch to play wing/forward, Gus out.

Oscar - useful against slow moving sides but just badly exposed against teams that move it, go back to Smith.

Lets play the kids even if they can't play that well. Need to look to next year and get games into these youngsters. The kids from Port killed us plus Boak. No use playing the same blokes that keep on doing the same pathetic things. I'd rather us lose with at least kids having a go.

There are a few others who are in that same boat too.  We've got a fit list - give others a run and show some of these guys that they need to perform to keep their spot.

I think I want TMac, Brayshaw and Jones out, to be replaced with some sort of group of Bennell, vandenBerg, Tomlinson, ANB and Hunt.

That's before we consider fitness issues with the next game in just six days and another one four days after that.

I'd give Harmes Brayshaw's spot in the middle first, before dropping him. Don't drop him on the back of a game he played in defence. He's not a defender. Goodwin should know that by now.

Ditto and that's just a start but:

Tom - plodder. Is it a coincidence we played pretty well without him?

Oscar - two shocking games, one of them particularly cringe worthy against a first gamer

Hunts finished mate.

I'd be getting games into Bedford instead. At least he shows defensive pressure unlike Hunt. Hunt is like Hannan.  Kicks your 2 or 3 goals one week then goes missing 3 weeks in a roe and averages about 5 touches..

I would definitely pay Sparrow back.

He's not a natural mid.

Harmes is a better bet as a mid/tagger and should have gone to Boak.

Tommy Mac's career is over...I hope everyone can see this now.

He's been shot for the last 18 months and no amount of wishing will change that.

Injury or form, it doesn't matter. I can't see him coming back from here.

He was the fresh player, didn't have the short turn around...

Hannan unfortunately puts one arm out way too often for my liking.

He won't straight line the ball...has the talent but won't use it.

Hunt was done the night he got knocked out...he's never come back from that.

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot
