Would you take Jeremy Howe back?

Is this the interview that you speak of?

It's really not that bad. We came 13th, 17th, 17th, 16th, 13th in the 5 years prior. He doesn't owe us anything. He made himself an A grade quality player because he left Melbourne. Best decision he's ever made. He got into career best form at the pies so he clearly needed a change of scenery. 

Certainly sounds like a bloke who was pushed (not very hard at all)

he couldn’t wait to get out of the joint, that would be the only reason he was pushed....

Just can't see a role for him alas. Lever is our intercept mark in the back line, and Fritsch is our medium sized marking forward. 
While I don't hold grudges, some of his [censored] comments about his time with us have been remembered too. 

Besides we are the future and looking for younger players....so howes about he just stay at cfc.

He's been Collingwooded. The only good players we ever got from them were Peter Moore, Henry Coles and RIP Flash Gordon.

Oi John Dellamarta was handy

at the same time we take players like May and Langdon and just pretend they aren't only here for more money and arguably more success. Get your blinkers off and see the afl environment for what it is.

Yes anyone who wants to come here are heroes.

If you leave for money or to play at a famous club, it’s all personal gain. 


couple of years ago we were a basket case, with these players the sum is greater than the individual.
But if I barracked for freo or gcsuns why wouldn’t  I have right to regard some as less than heroes 

players leave and change for many reasons, I like players and dislike others. 
I did not mind Alves going to North or others leaving after a Iong time with us.

just my opinion

Great player, loved him at the Dees, reads the play very well, and kicks really well on both feet. Loved his speccies - wish there was more of them.

But no, wouldn't take him back. Lever is a better intercept mark, May and Salem are better kicks, and we have a heap of basically untried talent playing at Casey, and he is now very injury prone.

I met him once on the golf course, he was playing with Jared rivers - didn't come across as a DH to me, just a really good bloke.

We wouldn't trade for him because we don't need him now but it's a myth he left for money.  He wanted to stay at MFC with his mates but we didn't want him.  That may or may not have been justified but the decision was ours, he didn't walk out.

Secondly anyone who thinks he's not a really good player is building a rhetoric to lessen the disappointment of him leaving.  He is a fantastic player and had he not suffered injury would probably have been AA.  He's one of my favourite players to watch outside MFC.  Skill, poise and plays the game in the way it should be played.

A very good assessment about the club’s football department’s underestimation of Howe’s ability and his value to the club as a draw card. I think we had issues about our salary cap because I recall something about Collingwood paying him more than the $400k we offered. Whatever, the case he’s definitely repaid them with his service but now, going on 31 years of age and with injuries behind him, he’s going to slow down.

Does anyone know how much Howe’s on?

At least those who are angry at him for his sour grapes comments might get some satisfaction from thinking that his wage is contributing to Collingwood’s current list management woes.

Not sure if the prospect of playing finals was a reason for him moving to Collingwood, but the way things are looking he won’t be far ahead, if at all, during his time at Collingwood on that front either. Melbourne having played finals in 2018 and likely this year as well, compared to Collingwood in 2018 and 2019, and he missed their brief final appearance last year.

    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

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc
