Say what you like about Selwood, but he’s been a champion player, who has set and driven standards from the day he was drafted to Kardinia Park.

Players like he Hodge, Hayes and Kirk are a rare commodity who change clubs.

Would have loved to have had him

Agree, he has been a champion player no doubt. His record shows it...

And did you see Selwood give Jonesy a friendly pat on the back when the ball went out of bounds.  I think they enjoy the contest,

I totally understand and agree with @Pennant St Dee that Selwood is a champion and future hall of fame player who should be respected. 

However there is a strong distaste for him especially amongst the players especially within games. Every week I see players giving it to him. I even noticed Sparrow give him a nice shove after getting him in a tackle where he was called for throwing the ball.

It might simply be that he talks a lot of [censored] out there or the well known narrative around him milking/playing for free kicks but in the heat of the game as others have mentioned these things happen. It's all part of the game.

Only one I don't love is when a defender is beaten in a forward marking contest or gives away a free kick and while his man goes back to take a shot another opposition player will come and really rub it in. Unless there is malice I don't really like it.

Yep, an absolute champion and an exceptional leader. Would also have loved him at the Dees.

That said, I do get a kick out of seeing his face when we beat them.

Agree, I dislike C.Scott and Selwood intensely but if I was a Geelong supporter I'd love them.  Scott's press conference after last weekend's match was very good.

He was involved in plenty including  many of their chains forward, particularly off HB.  Without Selwood they probably lose that by another two or three goals.

While his slippy arm raise is annoying it still works after all these years and so many players still haven't learned or at least try to attack him lower at the hips.

There is by-play in every match.  Some teams more than others.  Joel dished it...Kozzie gave some back.  Kozzie may well have dished it out first after that half time goal and we just saw the retaliation from Selwood thinking he initiated it.  Who knows who cares.

Regardless, good competitive stuff that builds rivalries i reckon.  And one is definitely building here.  I for one am loving our matches against the Cats since we rolled them twice at the end of 2018 and again on Sunday.

You beauty Newc!

Yes his press conference was a ripper wasn’t it. He was honest in his answers but without being cliched. He was interesting to listen to and entertaining. It is a difficult line the coaches have to walk, particularly with the emotions still running high, but he seems to be able to do it.

I think Viney has also had a bit of history with Selwood. I remember the story of when he spent most of our victory against them at Kardinia Park whacking into Selwood in 2015. After Selwood had to get patched up, Jack's priceless and facetious quip was 'Why do you keep bleeding?'

We didn't roll them TWICE we last at Kard Park by less than a goal then beat them in the Elimination Final.

great player but he's ducking and playing for high free kicks is a big part of how he will be remembered by a lot of fans.

They have who can run the slowest races at athletic carnivals?

If so does that mean Jones finished behind seleood?

Huge Selwood fan. One of the best captains I have ever seen, and has single handedly - on numerous occasions - dragged his team kicking and screaming over the line for victory.

But my daughter and I went to see the final v Geelong in 2018, sitting near the boundary. We witnessed his whinging, playing for free kicks, and getting stuck into opposition players after the ball had gone. I can't help but be impressed with him as a footballer and skipper but can't stand all the other c**p he goes on about.

    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

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev
