Are we joking about Brayshaw? He needs time in the seconds to get back in form.

No you are not watching or seeing his team efforts They are in front of you on the screen or at matches Watch him do the 1% ers as well snd support for the backs and forwards.

Weideman - 2 timely goals

Gawn - Mr. Butter fingers

Pickett - slight form slump

Harmes - looked dynamic again

Petracca - quiet 2nd half

Jordon - important goal early

Spargo - season best game

May - a complete game

Salem - surprise kicking errors

Jackson - Not a forward

Lever - setting intercept records

Brayshaw - better than previous

Oliver - enters Brownlow favouritism  

Hibberd -composed yet bullish

Langdon - surprisingly quiet game

Melksham -some untimely errors

Rivers - what a jet

Hunt - needs to lift

Neal-Bullen - salvaged his career.

Petty - confidence boosting game.

 

Very good DrD but leave Jacko alone he is rucking  about 50% and performing and we are getting Gawny both forward  and back who influences the game as long as he doesn't drop the marks!

His rucking is superior to Gawn at the moment

Re-watch the game... Brayshaw was sensational as the defensive wing.  Don't recall him losing a single one on one, and his 1% efforts were fantastic.  He did everything you could ask him to do without the football.

Daisy Pearce was on the money all game, that he was doing a brilliant, thankless job on the wing.

Fantatsic post on Brayshaw summed up his night.

Can debate on him cease, its just not fair or accurate as to his value defensively for the team. Plus has a great football brain and decision making capability(can't have too many of those). Sure he fluffs it sometime but let's move on. Langdon Oliver Brayshaw - best centreline in the AFL.

92% efficiency last night…

Not a comment at you Demon17, but I am sure some posters just look at the disposals count to work out best players…

Fascinating post game interview showed Lever had practically lost his voice, such was his shouting and directing during the game. Richo commented on hearing it all night leading the defence or just helping tie it all together with his defensive team mates.

All good. I was referring to some earlier games but gee he was great last night.  He and Spargo might just be the 2 smartest footballers in the team.

For sure the IQ is there, but what about most natural? I can't make up my mind, torn between Oliver and Kozzie, and would entertain arguments on another half dozen.

don't get me wrong, i love jackson in the ruck. But not in the forward line and I don't like Gawn in the fwd line either. If you can't kick straight you shouldn't be in the forward line. That's my personal belief. It's too much of a momentum swinger.

Good. only criticism for me would be too nice on Gawn and Pickett. Gawn dropped a lot of marks and has been doing some dumb things like with 50 seconds to go in the 3rd qtr he has the ball at half forward and he wants to slow it down. Wrong decision .Ended up getting called to play on and turning it over and potentially giving the dogs momentum at the break. 

Pickett was the pickett of last year. Fumbled and missed 1 or 2 easy goals. Time to slow down again and do the basics well first.

I understand the commentary around Brayshaw. I think he has been extremely poor the last few weeks and is lucky to hold his spot. Tonight he was much better but usually he is a liability on the wing due to his lack of leg speed. And his kicking skills have been way off. But credit where credit is due, he was efficient tonight. 

Ummmm ?‍♂️

Its a fair comment. Luke is great in the ruck because he is suberb at ground level.

But then we are lacking a key forward a lot of the time. Max doesnt always go frwd and when he does he often misses goals.

Luke up forward isnt really impacting the scorboard either.

Not sure of a solution but since we are having our best season for  a long, long time Im not too concerned .

On Gawn , when I watched again I noticed the marks more, so you have a fair point, but the 1st quarter clearances with which we had a brilliant quarter, seemed in no small part to Max who was tapping much better than the last few weeks, also while he fluffed a few kicks I was well impressed with him picking the ball up and taking it on, seemed more on, hence my comments.

Pickets did more 1%ers than I could count and at one stage split the contest with four dogs. That and two bounces while running down the wing with a tackler in hot pursuit had me frothing at the mouth. So on your 2nd point I demur, he did basics well, just missed a couple of moments for goal, but his pressure was a part of the win.

If every player lived up to the standard set by D'land posters, the team would literally get 4,000 possessions in a game.

lol. please. you can't say that Brayshaw is quick. I don't trust these stats at all. Brayshaw is a plodder and my eyes tell me that. If he has pace, then he certainly doesn't use it defensively. As Connor McGregor would say, he's stuck in the mud

People who don’t appreciate Gus’ role last night don’t appreciate football. 

I've been 'harsh' on him for a long time but he was fantastic last night. He's gotten better almost week by week in the wing role and showed a different type of talent against the Doggies.

His game last night, after first disposal, was as good as any that Tomlinson has played. Fits in well with the boys down back.

May not be quite as solid on the bigger beasts as Tommo was but has more strings to his bow in skills.

Either way a great duo to pick from.

Maxy's been getting criticism on here when he lead us like a legend; and you use this line on my comment about Gus, who was good at best! Misdirected.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
