Would you take Jeremy Howe back?



Recommended Posts

I loved Jeremy Howe when he was with us but he has really not conducted himself well towards the club that gave him his chance.

I hope he does regret leaving one day

Hahahaha   No

Yes, on minimum wage as a forward for Casey reserves.

I absolutely wouldn’t, the bloke has done nothing but have cracks at the club since he left.  He deserves to finish out his career in the bottom 4 (hopefully with no crowds watching).

When was the last hanger he took in a Melbourne jumper?

It was the last time I took any notice of his contribution to the Demons. 
 

He is the epitome of a selfish player.

Anything he can do in the forward line*, Fritsch can do better.

Anything he can do in the back line*, Lever can do better.

*Except of course take a speccy. I'll give him that.

Not even if he begged.
Took my kids down to watch training back when he was playing for us.
Most of the players couldn't have been better with them.
Howe however couldn't be bothered giving them the time of day.
Far too full of himself for that.
Even back then.

3 things I learnt that day that stuck with me.
Colin Sylvia and Jack Watts were brilliant with the kids.
Howe is a [censored].

Wouldn't take him back but only on a cost v needs basis. Still a good footballer but at 30 odd is surplus to our requirements.

It seems forgotten that the year before he left we tried to shop him to GWS for a draft pick. Top ten I think we were aiming at. He didn't want to go there.

Not having a crack at OP but why would we want him back? His position in the team would be in an area we are currently quite well served. He’d be surplus for our needs. 

I don’t really have anything against him, I was disappointed we didn’t try harder to keep him but it really did annoy me when he openly said one of the reasons he was happy to be going to Collingwood was to play as a forward. Did nothing as a forward for the Pies, got moved to defence and suddenly commentators were hailing the move as genius. 🙄

I would take him back. Great player, still has a couple of years left to run and I think it's reasonable to think that if we end up in the situation with Lever and May out at the same time we would be struggling with Tomlinson. Tomlinson is doing well right now but I'd argue so would Oscar McDonald or Sam Frost with the way the team is playing. Knowing we had Howe down there would give me more comfort. He would be good for depth and would increase the competitiveness for players to get a spot, and keep it. Very nice problem to have

Really don't care about the past, he was younger, more arrogant and could see way more upside with the Pies. Thought his comments for Jones' 300th were very nice and says a lot about him as a person.

A hypothetical.... Let's just say we continue along the path we are currently on and win the flag or come bloody close. Collingwood decide to trade out players with currency wherever they can for their rebuild. Collingwood are open to trading out Howe. Would you take him back?

Leave him to the beer-snakes!

Haha NFW. We have the best defence in the comp without him and with 3 potential A.A selections in it.

left for his reasons, like Gerard Healey left when he was needed, 

No

Yes, Healey's departure was a classic example, despite his unquestionable ability and efforts with the MFC.

It was always my opinion that we were happy to trade him because he was one of the few we had with trade currency at the time and he probably wasn't the greatest for rebuilding our culture. So I saw him as sort of pushed to go and we didn't try very hard to keep him. The issue came though when he chose Collingwood and they chased him, instead of Gold Coast (iirc). So the deal and currency for him lessened but we were stuck. 

And no, I wouldn't want him back.

I was about to go into ‘systems’ and ‘people that are not able to follow those systems’ but I won’t waste my time.

No we shouldn’t get Howe. 

And if you think we should, you should feel bad and remorse. So head down for the rest of the day...

In a medium sized defender I think Rivers is the archetype - fast good disposal courageous and selfless.

Howe's main game is the hanger on a hapless fwd who got a rubbish delivery.

 No thanks to Howe.

    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. Were th

    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
