Would you take Jeremy Howe back?



Recommended Posts

No, and for a few different reasons. His position is not a need. He wouldn't come dirt cheap in terms of salary. Injuries are really affecting the back end of his career.

Nah. He was a jerk when he left. If it wasn’t for us choosing him as a speculative pick he’d still be taking hangers somewhere in Tassie.

what a [censored] you are. Give the guy some credit for becoming one of the best defenders in the game.

Meanwhile we're loving steven May even though he left gold coast because they were bad and literally the same reason Howe left. 

Peoples blinded loyalty affects their logic. So how is May's decision any different.

I'd take him back. He is one of the best defenders in the game. Just because May and Lever are ahead of him on current form doesn't mean that he isn't a great player.  All of this talk saying that he is past his prime etc. is way too harsh considering his injuries. Maybe he isn't the greatest bloke off the field, but to me he interviews well and doesn't seem like a tool. Using the phone incident as an example is barely a hanging offence. I think people are just too proud to admit that they would have him back. 

 

I think he is a very good player, but he would struggle to get a game in our team, so why spend money on aging surplus?

He basically plays the exact same role as Lever, except Lever is 6 years his junior and a far superior on field leader. 

There are far better options out there if we are looking to add players to our list at the end of the season.

Whatever one thinks of him and the circumstances of his departure, where would he fit in to our lineup and game plan?

Certainly not current beat 22.

Im a one eyed supporter. What can I do. It blinds my logic.

Nup, [censored] him.

He walked out. He’s constantly injured. We’ve got his position well covered now.

We’re winning this year off the back of good culture, our team hasn’t really changed. Why mess with positive culture by bringing him back?

If he improves the team, for sure i would. But he is getting injured a little too often now

Half Back is a Speed and precision position now. 
He may have to watch our success from the Grandstand

I don't hate or even dislike Howe.  I have no emotion, as I'm not invested in him.

That said, I couldn't care less what some supporters feel.  It's inconsequential to me.

Why do you care what others think ?

because as an intellectual person it bugs me when people don't use basic logic. 

p.s. you're on a supporters forum so of course you care what some supporters feel.

I'm interested in observations and information I may not know, but I couldn't care less about how they ''feel''.

Haven’t heard May say a bad word about Gold Coast since he left. Same can’t be said for Howe. 
Howe has carried himself like a [censored] since he left us.

I wouldn't automatically rule out a player that will be 32 next year, but in Howe's case his body has been ravaged with injury.

 

Wow, I didn't realise he was that old...

He had a great injury free run there for a while but the last few years haven't been kind.

Collingwood's list is looking worse than I thought with Sidebottom on the way out and Pendles nearer the end than the start and Howey struggling with injury also near the end.

I would take anyone back except $cully but he's done. For free (or close to) as a backup yes, but not for any serious price.

Screamers massively overrated considering most were turned over immediately or came when we were 82 points down.

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...

Exactly there's a reason we got rid of him. I still remember Roos having a crack at both Howe and Watts during the break of a night game vs Sydney. You could tell he was exasperated trying to get these guys to adhere to the structure and team rules.

May returning home leaving a cultural wasteland to be close to family and friends, without bagging his old club.  Howe bagged the club that got him out of Dodges? Ferry. He left to play as a forward and then played as a defender. And did I mention he went to Collingwood!

One wears a Red and Blue jumper the other wears a Black and White jumper. Pretty simple observation to me.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
