The Karl Amon Thread



Recommended Posts

Perhaps we are worried we will lose Gus or want to keep him down back. There is no doubt the opposite wing to Lingers can definitely be improved. 
Never stop getting better.

Lol he was pretty much nominated as an All Australian wingman last year mate..

With more than 100 games now in the bank, Amon played every possible game in 2021 and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. He led the club in kicks on the season and was right up there for disposals, inside 50s and centre clearances, rounding out a career best year which saw him nominated for All-Australian selection and recognised as the club’s most improved player for the year.

Fair call. But watching him ACTUALLY Play, he is not a Wingman

I take little notice of the Selected Sides or The Football Record 

Langdon is a true Wingman…

I must say I have never really noticed him.

Internet shows him as midfielder, 68 games, 33 goals, 181cm , 26 yo.

Where would he fit in?

I must have missed those games

He is far too small to play wing in my opinion, maybe that is why he struggles to play consistently at Port 

Definately worth a look though, particularly as an FA

Let's face it SWYL, no one except Robbie Grey plays consistently at Port.

Perfect fit. We need two things - a wing and another A-grade mid. Both of which would be luxuries. But to have two attacking wings in Langdon and Amon, provide a lot of drive forward. We have two exceptional kicks down back in Salem and Bowie, who can help utilize both wingers. Speeds us up, and that makes us harder to stop up forward. Amon is massive for us. We get him, and good luck to the opposition. We pretty much control all areas of the ground if we can land Amon.

I admit that my memory is deteriorating, but I'm sure we chased Amon a few years back. Maybe it was around the time we got Langdon?

Very interesting if true. It shows that we may have more salary cap space than we think and that we are looking at all avenues to keep the flag window open.

A beautiful kick of the footy. Pure.

All day for him

Side note: Lingers on one wing, Amon on the other woweee

Classy little player. Interesting whether it is us who are interested or whether it is his agent pushing a connection to the Dees. 

Saints apparently interested and his mother works there

We went fairly hard at Cerra last year, wouldn't have done so without some room to move.

Couldn't think of a better type to come in.  We need midfield depth, but with Sparrow/JJ/Gus, etc we need some outside skill, especially a left footer

After getting Dunstan for inside depth, Amon would be perfect for the outside.  Depth might be harsh as I reckon he is good enough to be in the 22.  

Get him for free and we are laughing! obviously he needs to fit into our salary structure.  i.e. he gets a lot less than elsewehere

Pitched for Isaac Smith after Langdon's first successful year - selected Rosman when that fell through. Brayshaw lauded for his defensive wing role. But are we aiming for dual attacking wings?

A class left footer with good pace on our wing will suit us great 

Brayshaw and JJ have served well as utility players on the defensive wing but they aren't pure wingers, Amon still fills a need

A gun whose best is ahead of him.

The problem would be salary - 650k won't be doable for us.

    NIGHTMARES OF NARRM by Whispering Jack

    Narrm Time has arrived in our city as the Melbourne Football Club takes the name Narrm Football Club as part of the 2022 AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round. This week will see the reigning premier pay respect to the region the club calls home — the land of the Wurundjeri people and their culture, language and memory. The team will wear its indigenous guernsey designed by Wurundjeri/Dja Dja Wurrung artist Ky-ya Nicholson Ward and what better way to wear it than with a win over North Melbourne Football C

    WESTERN SUNSET by George on the Outer

    It was the top of the table Demons who inflicted their highest ever defeat of the Eagles, thereby ensuring that the sun has finally set on their long dynasty out West.  The final margin was 74 points but it was the final quarter barrage of seven goals which definitively signalled to the meagre West Coast opposition and supporters exactly who was in control.  That was after a similar six goal to one opening quarter, but hey … why not boo and complain about every decision that went aga

    ON THE RAMPAGE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons had it easy on a windy day under sunny skies at the home of the VFL Kangaroos at Arden Street on Sunday. They caught the hapless Roos who were badly depleted by injury on the hop and disposed of them with little trouble. It was the second time in consecutive seasons that Casey inflicted a 100 plus points defeat on the Roos who had no answers for an opponent on the rampage. When the game started, Casey was without three important forward line components in Mitch Brown, Ka

    RISING TO PHOENIX by William from West Perth

    On Sunday, when the Melbourne Football Club returns to the scene of the club’s most famous victory of the 21st Century, the feeling out there on the ground will most certainly be different. The dying moments of the night of 25 September, 2021 at Optus Stadium marked a team rising to the level of a Phoenix, bathing in the cheers and adulation from an adoring crowd in the wake of their premiership victory after so many years of hardship and desolation. This time around they can expect a main

    TO THE SWORD by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons closed off their game against the Southport Sharks with a comfortable 30-point win off the back of a monster six goal opening term in which they put the Southport Sharks to the sword and kept them scoreless.  Despite losing Toby Bedford to AFL medical sub duty, Majak Daw and Bailey Laurie, the Demons still fielded a strong list of 13 MFC players and also managed to blood two more local newcomers in Tyler Edwards and Tom Macrae after adding four debutants last week.

    NO HEAVEN FOR SAINTS by George on the Outer

    Just when St.Kilda thought it was heading toward Saintly Heaven in Season 2022, it was brought crashing to earth quickly by the ruthless Demons machine. It wasn’t a long drawn out process before the Saints discovered how fragile they were. The Demons simply took the game apart in the first quarter piling on four goals against a paltry three  behinds. Even when Membrey was going to score a major right on the ¼ time bell from 15m out in front, he failed to bypass the outstretched hands of Har

    COVID PROOF FENCE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne fans breathed a sigh of relief last Saturday when their team managed to beat Hawthorn and the Covid19 outbreak that left it without coach Simon Goodwin and five premiership players – Luke Jackson, Kysaiah Pickett, Tom Sparrow, Harrison Petty and Alex Neal-Bullen. The 10-point win was meritorious not just because the Demons overcame the loss of the coach and key players but also due to the way in which they survived the tension surrounding the club in the 72 hours leading up to the

    YIPS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a bout of goal kicking yips and a last quarter Box Hill Hawks comeback to record a thrilling 7 point away from home victory on Sunday. With senior affiliate Melbourne fighting a Covid breakout and some injury concerns to their listed players, Casey turned to youth and called up locals Zac Andrewartha, Matthew Johnson and Harvey Neocleous to join Matt Buntine, a local product who was part of the inaugural GWS Giants list.  The team made a slow start but took co

    DEPLETED NOT DEFEATED by George on the Outer

    With Covid 19 ravaging the club, forcing the absence of five players from last week and some more premiership players still sidelined or returning after isolating, it was certainly a depleted Melbourne side that turned up to front Hawthorn in their Round 7 match up at the MCG. Normally, when a team loses ¼ of its soldiers, you would expect a less than favourable result but after the Hawks opened up a 2 goal lead in the opening minutes (and indeed, it could have been more) the Demon machine

    NO COMEBACKS by The Oracle

    Q:  How do the Hawks come back after being 32-0 early, leading at every interval and then conceding nine goals in the last quarter to lose to the Swans by 41 points in the comfort and safety of their second home down in Launceston? A:  If they’re playing the Demons at the G off a five-day break, there are no comebacks. They simply won’t come back! That’s the short form preview of the Melbourne v Hawthorn match up at the Home of Football this weekend. That is not to dismiss the you

    TIGERS OUTPOINTED by George On The Outer

    Normally when one side outpoints the other, it is because of an emphatic victory.  Against Richmond in the annual ANZAC Eve Blockbuster, the win by Melbourne was anything but emphatic, as they managed to miss the “big sticks” an incredible 22 times!   The groans from around the ground as the Demons failed to put the Tigers away, eventually turned into ironic cheers for each successive point on the scoreboard. However, this irony from the fans was only possible because Melbourne had compl

    MOMENTS OF DOUBT by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons maintained their undefeated run and top spot on the VFL ladder after a bruising game against Richmond VFL at Punt Road yesterday but it wasn’t without its moments of doubt. The team was greeted by clear windless weather and sunny skies at Tigerland, a far cry from the prevailing conditions at their fortress in outer suburban Melbourne at Casey Fields. Things looked very bright in the  early part of the game when Jimmy Munro got things under way with the opening goal from a
