2 big key forwards who don't get a lot of the ball and don't offer any defensive pressure. It's just not going to happen.

When has it ever been the job of the key forward to apply massive amounts of defensive pressure. Weid and Brown are there to make sure we kick more goals than the other team and therefor win us matches of AFL football.

Let's give it a year to see - worst case Weed would be great at CHB Weitering-style.

Hmmm I don't know. When did Richmond win 3 flags in 4 years and when has there not been a 100 goal kicker in over a decade.

Jack Riewoldt laid 27 tackles from 21 games in 2020.
Tom Lynch laid 23 tackles from 19 games in 2020.
 

Definitely not elite pressure numbers.

Big men have a role to play, but it's secondary to making aerial contests and kicking goals.

Mmmmm,** I often think of Hawkins, Franklin, Kennedy, Darling, Westhoff, Lynch, Brown and Reiwoldt as high defensive pressure forwards, and when I do, I slap myself in the face and remind myself what the [censored] they are there for. 

1. If you can, mark it...do your best to kick straight.

2. If you can't, halve it

3. When you halve it, as much as possible do it in favour of your forwards.

4. If you can't do that... (we have metrics on your aerobic capacity)...gas yourself out in the first 15 minutes of Qr1 with intense bursts of speed (not looking at you Sam Weiderman) and do feck all for the rest of the match.

5. Slap in the face...Scratch 4 - use your body to smash the backmen physically, stretch them, dummy lead, allow your smaller forwards to wreak havoc.

 

**I concur fully.

What ever the case maybe I can see the filth knocking on Weidemans door next year.

Why?

Does Sam Weiderman love collingwood?

or is it just. a. lovely. romantic. link.. that only certain people above the age of 50 'fondly recall'. as though the boy has always wanted to go home?

actually, it's pretty [censored] hilarious, this notion of just doing what your parents and grandparents did, irrespective of your current circumstance, and the people you as a mid 20yo care for and have formed relationships with.

Look, I understand @DeeSpencer's concerns, but this doesn't need another thread. This discussion has been had, at length, in the Ben Brown thread.

I think it's relatively clear we're going for Brown to partner with Weid, not to replace him. If it doesn't work in 2021, DeeSpencer will have a field day reminding us all about this thread, but I'm with the vast majority who believe the Brown-Weideman forward combo can work.

I think (hope) we'll see more of this Weid now we have another genuine key post to give him the freedom to roam.

 

His tackle nailing Dangerfield near the boundary at around the 1.50 mark still gives me goosebumps.

I love the Weid and think he will become a great player for us, but I had to laugh watching his highlights....if the Ben Brown highlights were anything to go by some posters would have us believe that that was just more staging for frees and lots of double grabs.

You've only put from 6th to 15th.
Look at the star-studded 1-5 for Pressure Acts this year!

We already have number one, so if we can get Jonathan Marsh or Max Lynch into the team, the 2021 cup is as good as ours!

2 of those guys are ruckmen, the other 3 all played a varying amount in the ruck at times. Tom McDonald had 33 pressure acts against North in a game where he rucked a decent amount and also when North's backline were a mess at inviting pressure.

Anyway you slice it, a forward line of Brown, Weid and Jackson is pretty hard to nullify.

I hope we can get another crumber to help out.

Backline sorted.

Mids sorted.

Frwd line sorted.

Go Dees.

That will not be the case. Nathan Jones stayed during the dark periods because he was confident of a turnaround. This is the challenge when you are inside the machine as your view is skewed. 

Viney is staying, loyalty is one reason but he is confident of future success. I hope that he has chosen well.

The area that it leaves us vulnerable in is ground ball rebounds, so we really need to compliment Brown's signature by bringing in a competent small forward to partner with Kozzie.

Mark my words cat will not win a flag with dads army, GWS made a grand final 2019 where are they now, I will tell you how next year goes, with a full season with full games, Geelong top 4 halfway through next year, then form will go slowly done until they enter finals in top 4 but no one is afraid to play them, the walking sticks will come out, just as it did the second half of the .GF.

    THE STUFF OF NIGHTMARES by Whispering Jack

    Please don’t talk to me about Melbourne’s lack of ruckmen last week at the Adelaide Oval. Or the discrepancy in the free kick numbers. Those things might have played a role in the way that the game unfolded but if you focus on them, then you are missing some truly significant pointers as to how the rest of the season is going to pan out for the Melbourne Football Club and in particular, on what happens on Thursday night when the team plays against Geelong at the Cattery. Here are some of th

    NO CONFUSION by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took more than half a game to crack Port Melbourne at Casey Fields on Saturday but when they finally did so, they were merciless and in the end, they took no prisoners.   What made Casey’s 58-point victory win so remarkable was the fact that even after late call ups to the Melbourne team that traveled to Adelaide deprived them of key players from their goal to goal line, the less experienced replacements all made meaningful contributions to the side’s overall performance as

    DOZEN FOR THE DEES by George On The Outer

    Melbourne stormed to its twelfth win for the 2022 season after finally putting the Crows away in the final quarter of their clash at Adelaide Oval. The 29-point victory was by no means an easy one for the Demons who went into the game without a recognised ruck and a forward line with a solitary tall. With a patched-up structure of Sam Weideman and Mitch Brown in the ruck, it was not surprising to see Adelaide dominate these contests.   However, despite 48 hitouts alone to Adelaide’s Re

    REMINDERS by Mel Rundle

    For those of us who were at the Adelaide Oval to watch Melbourne’s first defeat for the year on that fateful evening in May of last year, the moment at which the final siren blared is still seared into our collective memory. A victory stolen away by a combination of factors including our own hubris, a frenzied crowd that seemed to control the minds of the umpires, some dreadful kicking for goal and a touch of plain bad luck. Perhaps it might have been the team’s training regimen that provid

    TURNING ON THE HEAT by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed north to taste some Queensland sunshine and despite having to leave out skipper Mitch White who was stricken with the flu, they had little trouble in turning on the heat and disposing of finals contender Gold Coast. The Demons were dominant from the very start with exciting young key forward Jacob Van Rooyen on fire early and Mitch Brown destroying the Suns with his marking and leading despite his erratic kicking for goal. By the time newcomer Ryan Valentine goaled w

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored 25

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan
