If Ben Brown doesnt play the rest of the year



Recommended Posts


Weideman to half time v pies. 2 handballs. 3 fumbles. Zero scores. Zero tackles.
Weid is getting the nod, and got the coach and us supporters backing. But I’m starting to lose hope and the Weid has to step up. 
Brown might get the call up after the bye.

MIGHT ?? Must play for the rest of the year, no ifs or buts!

Weirderman’s last game until round 17, at least, thanks. BBB can’t possibly be worse than this.

I am a huge Weideman fan, but enough is enough. After the bye, Ben Brown plays for the remainder of the year.

Honestly it seems like Weid is invisible out there...

Does he have the worst leading patterns in the league? Almost always out of position

Almost always seems to have no separation from his man

Yes to BBB for mine. Let's give him a shot

Weideman has absolutely no presence as a forward target.

Needs to be dropped. Give Brown the rest of the year to see what he can do.

This part. If Ben Brown plays, defenders swarm because he’s such a threat.

B Brown may not have set the world on fire in his three games but if he got dropped after the form he showed, Weideman must be dropped now too.

0 marks, 0 kicks, 1 tackle.

The lack of goals is bad enough but it's the lack of contest. Brought the ball to ground once I think, and only because he was so far behind he had to spoil rather than try to mark. Outworked in the air, non-existent on the ground.

It's time for us to make the switch and plan for and play with a TMac/B Brown forward line from here on.

Both have had a block of games now and both have been mediocre. But I think on form and maturity I would want Brown in there after the bye to see if things click. I think Browns big body will be invaluable in finals. Weideman is not attacking enough for me at the moment.

Brown has way more of a presence and attracts several defenders. Weid is lost at sea.

Easy swap for mine. We have Jacko as a tall who can also provide ground ball pressure.

Yep. I agree. Lucky for us we have had this season to weed out the 3rd best forward. Weideman isn’t up to it. 

Today simply answered part of the main query for the team all season - who is the 3rd forward (even T mac was in doubt at the start of the year).

Today we learnt finally Weid isn't it. So now its over to either of the Browns to take theuir chance.

Ben Brown holds marks and makes the opposition nervous. 

Weiderman does not. 

Tmac also plays better with B.Brown then he does Weiderman

At least Bbb can hold a mark. Does weid use to much hand sanitizer before the game?

Cant take a trick marking.

Bbb should not have been dropped.

At least we know where we stand with SW now.

All the best for him. I wish it were different but its not sadly.

I remember when Weid was tearing up the VFL, and it was mentioned that due to Majak’s form, we might want to play him before Weid.

Rightly, Weid would be infuriated if that happened.

Right now, BBB would have the right to be annoyed if he doesn’t get another crack. If you have two steady efforts and a mare (even in that Carlton game, there were two occasions he got his lead cut off by a teammate) while working in a new system vs. Weeds four to five consecutive shockers, then a meritocracy should give you another chance.

And if BBB doesn’t fire, give Mitch Brown a run. We are six years in and the bloke is still playing like a skittish pony. I expect it in year one, but he’s still playing like a first or second year player.

Strange though that he can do so well in the twos.

But yep he looked lost today.

I dont know if hes lost speed or times his leap poorly but he just cant hold on to the ball.

Talk about butter fingers.

Hes played over fifty games now and is not giving a good return so I really think his future at the club may be in jeopardy.

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. 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. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme

    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
