Think we just have to play him until it either clicks or Ben Brown knocks down the door to kick him out of the team. I still have belief in him but needs to stick those marks and be more efficient in front of the sticks.

Lol here we go again with the new whipping boy hey...

 

So has he kept his spot for next week based on that performance?

No doubt he has talent but he has effectively gone missing for large parts of all the games he’s played this year. His  set shots tonight showed a man devoid of confidence. He’s had his chance and now it’s time to let Ben Brown settle in the side.

So hip wood and Daniher went missing, should they be dropped?  Thought Sam did better tonight (apart from his kicking).  Clunked some marks, made good position (gave that front and centre goal to Kozzi) led solidly.  Keeps his place for mine.  If he finds his kicking boots there is 4-5 goals in him per game.

His oppponent was AA Full Back last year. He competed which provides the fodder for our smaller forwards.

Nup, would think Brown might come in next week.

Just think Weid is clearly the new whipping boy and the reactions to his performances are over the top.

Hipwood was massive in the first half, Daniher is the most unpredictable player in the competition. But I don’t know much about Brisbane’s list, have they got a experienced full forward with three consecutive years of kicking 60+ plus goals sitting back in the seconds unable to get a game.

Again like the win last week against the dogs, when the game was effectively won Weid was not sighted. We know the talent is there but again, if Brown got dropped for a poor sighting against Carlton then it’s time for the Weid to go back.

I did not think he was that bad tonite. Kicking was poor but competed well. If you people think Ben Brown would be better then think again.

I think he would do as well and probably hick straighter.

Yes some reactions are, as you’ve mentioned before sometimes the disposal going inside fifty isn’t great but come finals that’s going to be par for course. I think an earlier poster nailed it when they said “when your only getting x number of possessions you need to be nailing those goals”. His kicking let him down tonight, we know he’s better than that.

Sam has no excuses next Monday. Most likely get Roughead. I'd expect Weid to kick 3+

The Bombres the following match. Similar story.

Yep, I'm just not in a rush to throw him away like some are. He really is still fairly young for a key forward and we need him there to take over from TMac and Brown as they wind up in a few years. He'll be in and out a little til end of next year I reckon.

Crumbs! If Weid had played as well as Hipwood we would have won by 10 goals . If I hear “  Weideman  nearly”  after yet another dropped mark I will scream

Do we trade him now, potentially for a 2nd round pick or do we let him battle away at the Casey Wind Tunnel for a year, by the end of which he'll be out of contract and off to a new home?

If we're bringing in BBB we may as well trade Weid now whilst he has some currency.

 

Weeds is a lock-in. The day will come and he will bag a casual 6! I think against the pies!

I don’t want to see him go either, but problem is as we know is there’s already not enough talent for 18 clubs as it stands. If we go deep into September and he’s not part of it, the offers will come. Still a long way to go this year, as we’ve already seen a lot can happen.

Didn’t see much at all tonight, but I did see him compete to bring the ball to ground against one of the games best defenders. Maybe that was his role, I’m not sure, unfortunately when he finally did take a good reactionary forward contested mark it was touched and then took the late one but shanked the kick. 

Lucky for him Ben Brown has no VFL to get some form.

Weid will have one more match and then Ben Brown will have 4 matches. I reckon they are both aware of how goody will treat them. Everyone gets 4 matches. Melksham may be a special case.

Yeah for sure. I think the club will need to sell him on the future for him, learning under TMac and Brown and taking over across the next few years. Wouldn't blame him for moving on though.

A big issue with Weid is he just doesn't change direction fast enough on his back leads, and we don't find him over the top.

He had a play early tonight with Fritsch had the ball on the flank and I think it went to Spargo then eventually to Sam who sprinted all the way to the pocket to mark outside the Lions defender.

All he had to do was change direction early and Fritsch would've found him in the corridor. He's doing the team thing by making the ground big but he's not doing the smart thing for him by knowing when to hit up at it.

Andrews had 9 intercept touches but didn't dominate the game and Sam had moments when he was body on body or leading up that he looked like he had him beat.

But he has a lot of moments where his momentum is dragging him one way and he doesn't get to contest with any force. He's not the athlete of Jackson or McDonald. He has to get straight lines at the ball. Personally I'd love to see him get deeper forward earlier and lead up at it more. But they want him up the ground doing the team thing.

He tackled pretty well, scrapped for the ball and had a few crucial clean handballs. Wasn't a terrible effort against what might be the games best defender, but just wasn't what we hope to see.

    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
