Wonder if they trained today?. About to go into a 3 day lock down up here in Brissie and not much to do. Pity no one can give any info on the training as club certainly aren't doing much.

I believe they are training the house down DD. Sorry could not help myself.

Can have 30k at a boxing day test but can't have several spectators at a standard footy training session... On ya Dan..

Fraser Rosman must have forged his birth cert! He looks 28 rather than 18.

Apparently one days training was enough for this mighty football club after 3 months off.

 

Seems so P2J. Remember my old days  in Melbourne at a local club in the eastern suburbs. One days training, normally Thursday night followed by heaps of drinks, be crook Friday and play well (sometimes) on the Saturday. Sure many of you did this.

The AFLPA was the worst thing to happen to footy.   They are nothing but lazy primadonnas these days.

No surprise that Dangerfield is their president.

A lot of people getting carried away here on the basis of this boys' running ability and height. Don't forget we already have one of these on the list who came in very experienced, holds the 2km time trial record at his old team and has a brute 194cm mature physique. So far he's failed on the wing he was brought in to play on. 

This kids a raw project player. He could be an upgrade on Isaac Smith or he could be a Tomlinson. Time will tell. Of course like everyone I hope it's the former but lets get a bit of reality here.  

Judging only from highlight videos but Rosman looks a different type of player than Tomlinson. He has real speed and is athletic and agile. Tomo will be a key back and not much else I reckon

ill let myself get carried away and be optimistic on this one

He’s going to be a brute. Hopefully we can develop his skills to match the physique. If we do he’ll be a serious weapon.

He joins a long line of recruits nominated to be stars by Dees supporters based on absolutely zero evidence like Warren Ayers, Daniel Breese & Jack Fitzpatrick.

I the case of Daniel Breese injury was his worst enemy and Jack Fitzpatrick was a diabetic and that did not help him reach his full potential.  I known Warren Ayers was into cricket and had no real ambitions to be an elite footballer.

Warren Ayers

Ryan Ayres?  Warren Ayres was a gun cricketer, mainly for Melbourne, and holds the all-time record for most runs scored in District/Premier Cricket as well as playing 40-odd First Class matches for Victoria.

Do you really think they’re not training..?

I honestly can’t tell if this is some sort of higher-plane sarcasm or not.

To put this into perspective, you have to keep in mind that this poster also insists that Trump won the election, COVID-19 is a hoax/no worse than the flu and that there was no riot at the Capitol building this week.

That's not "higher plane".  That's a plane that lacks a pilot and has never got off the ground.

He may indeed not make it but he has real physicality and can take a strong contested grab. His kicking style is a concern but he’ll be working with the best in the business in Chocco. He was a speccie selection for sure but his upside is enormous. All depends on skills development from here. I’m hopeful.

P2J what a lazy comment 

We are getting each training session photos the same day and are on the website AFLW also!!

In case you were not aware 4 years and under come back about 1st  week in Dec and ALL are back  6 Jan.  AFL rules.
 

And if you have been awake most players were given extra programs by Burgo to do separately from 2020 end and over Cmas.

And Ill join you DubDee in the fantasy stakes Rosman Will be better than Isaac Smith because he is about 3 com taller!!

Seriously I think this bloke will be a huge X factor on a wing or up forward or wherever !

And BTW It's Time Tommo yes wasn't great on a wing but we prob didn't make it easy for him like GWS. I thought his switch to CHB a good success and believe he will be a very versatile foot soldier for us over the journey being able To play in many positions and be a solid contributor in most.

Between the virus and training at Casey these reports are now full of nothing. How I long for the reports from Goschs. 

Does it really matter what the training reports say old dee as we are always training well and players are in the best shape of their careers and yet we still manage to stuff up our season year after year. 

To me pre season training reports are just fluff pieces and to be taken with a tonne of salt  

I am sick of hearing about how great our pre seasons are and I am more interested to see how we play this season and to see if it will turn into another [censored] show.

Correct but they fill a gap and I  used to enjoy going to them a couple of times myself. But alas none this year.

In the post above where you respond to P2J, you’re actually quoting TeamPlayedFine39’s post.

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 19

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the
