Some of the commentary on here is genuinely unbelievable. You'd think we'd used pick 1 in the draft on Daw. He's training with the club to see if he's capable of taking a spot on our list th

Spoke to him today. Humble as always, seems pumped to get stuck in.   🔴🔵

We should all be proud of the Club's announcement and receive the AFL's community award in 2021. Anything that keeps him away from Lulie Street it to be highly commended. On an equally serious no

Why Brissie ? We don't play them in Round 1 or early in the season.

Might be better to change name to X only if you keep making posts like this Theo!!!

He's referring to the first round pick we owe them after the season.

Yuck, smacks of desperation. 

Brissie will be licking their lips at the thought of our juicy R1 pick.

Do you know what Archie Smith, Tom Fullarton, Sam Skinner, Connor Ballenden and former reality tv show winner Matt Eagles all have in common.

They are the guys who got games for Brisbane in the back up ruck/forward role whilst Stef Martin was injured last year.

It had no impact on where they finished on the ladder.

So is the plan to have T Mac and Jackson as our stay at home key forwards while Daw rotates between forward, second ruck and bench?

While Mitch Brown is back up if any of the above gets injured.

I'd personally have Brown ahead of Daw (with Jackson being the second ruck) as he has a few more runs on the board since 2019.

..and he probably is, but with several talls out medium to long term he will add depth and options.

Hooray,

Great news,  I was surprised that North would dump half its team let alone Majak.

I thought straight away he was a player that would have an impact.

Luckily it is with us.  The only concern I have is that they don't play him, just like Harley Bennell who was given very little chance at all.

 

Bennell was finished Hello, he had plenty of opportunities, saw it with my own two eyes on multiple occasions at Adelaide Oval in 2020.

Majak will be a handy back up in multiple positions.

i wonder how much of a pre season he's had?

might not be up to scratch for first 4 or so rounds

Read somewhere that he had signed on with some local footy club. Not that it compares to AFL level training, but it’s not as if he sat on his bum since North delisted him. He looks like a man that keeps himself in good shape

well only 4 weeks till rnd1 and yet to start training (AFL wise) I seriously doubt he would be afl match ready

i'm sure he is basically fit and looked after himself, but has done nothing approaching an afl preseason

still, i hope he's not required by rnd1 anyway

You also mentioned Matt Scharenberg which I'd hoped we'd have a look at. Too good a talent to be out of the AFL system.

Although he probably wouldn't help our injury issues right now.

I blv his mental altitude is what’s stood in way but circumstances meant we need a fwd/ruck utility and Majak fits that Bill perfectly as a 5/6th option

The amount of discarded stuff I've resurrected over the years would astound you. I recently saved two wall heaters ($450ea when new), both are in excellent condition and manufactured in 2015. They were missing mounting brackets which cost me $40. They are now installed in a unit I own. The point is; discards can be fixed if you have the nous and the will.

My good lady has brought a few items off Facebook marketplace, two 70s liking side boards, the look grand and were an ok price.

I went to collect them and situate them in the Ute, took me some time, while I was doing so the lass who sold them wandered out of her house to her car. As she opened the boot she said “ the things you find on the side of the road” and preceded to pull out 3 weathered tables she was going to do up and sell for a tidy profit. Made me laugh/sad face.
 

Majak isn’t weathered, he’s still learning the caper. Personally if he dropped a few kgs I think he’d be able to get to a few more fwd contests and clunk a couple more marks.

I would back our current crop of coach's and performance staff to get the best out of him if he has the drive to make it happen. A lot of people think the HB signing was a bust and I get that, but I think it's overlooked that we got him back on the field and if it wasn't for some of his own mental issues he could of had a good future with the Club

Please. We need not acknowledge North possessing any acumen in what decisions they have made. They cleaned out their list to the bones believing in a re build from the ground up. Sort of a scorched earth policy, and Majak was one of the casualities.

Not that I care very much what Tim Watson thinks, but even he questioned whether the Roos were too quick to turf out Daw. So they have not escaped media attention for the decision. I hope Majak proves North wrong in getting rid of him. Serves them right.

And Majak deserves another chance at redemption. Why should he be denied it?

In 2021 I would rather have him playing in the ruck than Bradtke.

Bradke ?? Is he still with us? Must have the slowest development rate in the AFL history.

Has anybody seen this guy recently?

Fullarton has jumped ahead of him and looks the goods as a super athletic basketball convert, however theyre likely to go in with just 1 ruck in McInerney with McStay, Hipwood and Daniher down forward pinching

6'9" 20 year old who has been with us just over 2 years. Not exactly panicking yet.

Just to get this thread back on track. Wander around Toorak, Armadale, Malvern when it's hard rubbish time. The stuff that gets discarded will astound you.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
