I can't work out if he is serious or if he realised that everyone knows he was wrong and is now just continuing to post nonsense as a joke to keep us entertained.

To be fair SWYL is not the only one that doesn’t know what a wingman looks like.  The AA selectors don’t either.  To compensate, mongrelpunt run their own rankings, and publish the latest ladder on Tuesdays.  The standings after round 7 were

Amon has too run a lot more both ways to impress me as a genuine winger  those heat maps show him around the same area,  that is my point  

Not hugely damaging in his present role

this is good info re amon

but it's misleading re langdon as it was as at round 7 (ed's worst game) where ed dropped from #1 to #4

round 8 langdon was superb and amon had a relatively quiet game

as you are subscribed to mongrelpunt can you post the round 8 table when it comes available?

I’ll post the top 10 when it’s published.  The scoring is a mystery to me as they use stats and votes. @The Mongrel Punt would you be able to elaborate what stats are used and how the voting works?

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…

Sorry mate, I think you're way off in your assessment of Amon. He's a pure wingman and was in the AA squad, Langdon wasn't.  A very strong case could be made that Amon was ahead of Langdon last season. 

We've got an amazing system at the moment and in premiership teams your average players look better than they really are. Amon slots straight into the starting 18 and room would simply be made for him. 

I'm not remotely interested in how Amon is going in a Port Adelaide side that has been struggling a lot. 

Amon is icing on the cake sort of guy. Port will ask for a first rounder, but due to leverage, I think a 2nd rounder and a future 3rd will get it done. A 2nd rounder (Around pick 30-35) isn't enough.

I have already said that Amon is worth a Serious look, but if you think he was a better winger than Mr Ed last year then we simply disagree. 
i am watching the games, stats are often misleading. Langdon is the Pure Winger

Amon would need to learn 2 way running in my view

You're definitely entitled to your opinion. But obviously the AA selectors thought he was better than Langdon. But regardless, at the very least he was in the mix for AA so that put him in the top 3rd of our list. 

I agree that stats aren't everything.

I often disagree with the AA side and the Langdon omission to me was laughable. 
We all saw how good he was last year. He has set a new level in the game. It is a joy to watch Mr Ed in action. I seriously don’t know what the AA selectors were using as their Template. 
Flags are more important anyway

Formula remains my own, but I use a combination of disposals/efficiency/metres gained, inside/rebound 50s, score involvements, goals,, turnovers, as well as player ratings every week decoded by the writer reviewing the game. 

They go in with the special herbs and spices every week to give a score and we get the cumulative amount.

Hope that helps

st-kilda-to-talk-with-power-free-agent-amon

"Sources familiar with Amon’s situation said that he would talk to the Saints, while Hawthorn and reigning premiers Melbourne are also among the clubs to have registered an interest in him.

It is unclear how the Demons could possibly accommodate Amon, however, given their imminent salary cap squeeze and the fact that they wish to re-sign star young ruckman/forward Luke Jackson and free agent gun Angus Brayshaw."

Reading that it looks like Saints are the front runners.

He is an Unrestricted Free Agent which means Port cannot match an offer as he is not one of their top 25% paid players..

Like with all player rating systems I can totally comprehend the herbs and spices but the rest is just a mystery.....

We  may not be able to match the Saints in money but with Melksham and Hibberd likely to retire or be delisted there must be some good coin there and if we win the flag he will be coming to a team with prospects of another flag before he retires.

Just on this - not sure how many of you watch Port games closely, but I am not sure how he would fit with you guys given the role he plays.

From where I sit, you play Langdon on one side of the ground and rotate Jordon with Harmes, ANB, and Brayshaw in the past - all these players have significant defensive sides to their games that Amon simply does not possess. He is a great runner and will work into the rotation to clog up space, but he is not a ball-winner in contested situations the likes of the three I listed. I am not sure he will be one to keep his width and spread the defence the way the others do. Sure, he can be taught, but to pay overs for someone that will play a role that four others already on the list can play... seems a little out of character for the current Melbourne team.

Far be it from me to tell you blokes about your team - I know how much attention to detail there is on this board - but I watch the wingers pretty closely across the league, and on face value, he does not appear to fit in with what you're doing at the moment.

Anyway, happy to be corrected

Only really seen him play a bit,  not paid much attention to the kind of player he is, if he isn’t guaranteed a starting 22 spot, would he want to come to the club?

If we got him, who would he replace in the best 22?

 

I reckon we are keeping our options open in case Brayshaw decides to leave.

I posted the same earlier and have my doubts on his contested ability. I see him picking and choosing whether to contest.

Surely the money he will want will be difficult for us with our current needs.

    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

    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

    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

    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.
