Zero second. Efforts.  JVR is closer to a call up

And that is the problem with him and Daw if they are out of reach they don't chase, they stop unless it goes back to them.

Agree re Weid he needs to cultivate an intensity and attitude that it’s his forward line, could have lined up a North defender with a fierce tackle in the 3 and just wandered in… 

Hard to teach a nice man to be a mongrel. 

If he doesn't have it now he never will.

JVR has incredible ground ball skills for a big man. Hits the contest with intensity and gathers cleanly. Good in front of the sticks too. I'd say we have found one here but with Taylor at the helm I think we knew we'd have the goods.

Wish he had some like his grandfather Murray he would own CHF but then again I don't think he would play many games the way it is umpired now....

Weid kicks 6 and still gets pummeled on Demonland. Of course.

 

Did you watch?   I could have booked bobbed up on the half forward flank for a couple.    North were atrocious.    As noted, weid doesn't do enough without the ball

Doesn't matter what Weid does, some Demolanders will smack him for something that they perceive he didn't do.

Weid has 10 marks and 20 hitouts, Demoland: 'Oh but he just doesn't hit the scoreboard!'

Weid has 6 goals, Demonland: 'Oh but he just doesn't do enough other stuff!'

Far out.

The Weid is an interesting player. i saw the last half live and was, like a few other posters a little disappointed in his output, and was surprised he kicked that many (6). So why is he marked more harshly than others ?  I think its because he could be so more effective if he started marking a lot of the marks he spills. He gets his hands on a lot of kicks but drops so many....it gets frustrating, probably for him as well.

If he was as good as you say he'd be in the side.  He's not, and there are VERY good reasons at least 3 guys are ahead of him at our club

JVR very impressive. Good mark and his 2nd efforts were very good. His contest and tackle to get the holding the ball in the 3rd quarter showed his potential. Sometimes it’s how you play without the ball that shows your ability. I think he will be managed at Casey this year but is definitely ready to step up if we need him.  
 

Woey jnr also showed his run and composure with the footy. 
 

Bailey Laurie is a small forward (creative half forward) in my view and today showed his ability.  A goal from 55 and another smart snap showed his love for a goal.  Probably shapes as a backup to Spargo at this stage.  But he again is another player who could step up to AFL level if required.

Nowhere did I say he's a gun. The point is there's a ton of Demonlanders who will put him down no matter the output.

Sure, Brown and TMac (albeit only just most of the time) are ahead of him, but who's the third? You're surely not suggesting JVR (who is yet to debut) are you?

Not being able to get to more than 1 game a year if I'm lucky, I can only watch on TV.  I am pretty neutral on Weid but one thing stands out on TV and was visible again in today's game.  When an opponent has the ball coming out of defence and Weid can see that he won't cut his run off, he makes no effort to do so.  Weid is probably right, he'd wouldn't effect the player 99 times out of 100.  But surely he should always go at him.

Justice must not only be done but seen to be done.

Mitch Brown, mate.  That's why he's in Perth ahead of Weid

Ok.

Also though, he had 6 goals, 19 disposals, 6 marks and 3 clearances today. Good on him.

Just don't understand why the focus always has to be negative with Weid.

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    THE CURSE by Norm Smith’s Ghost

    Melbourne’s fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worst on the day the Anthony Albanese was elected as Prime Minister. Since that fateful day, Steven May pinged his hamstring early in the match against the Dockers, Harry Petty came off the ground in consecutive games feeling the worse for wear, it was revealed that Tom McDonald’s foot was in messy shape, the Herald Sun exclusively reported that two years ago, Demon committee members exchanged emails critical of the team after it lost a game by 5

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan

    THE COMEBACK by Whispering Jack

    How will Melbourne react to losing a game after such a long time since tasting defeat? That question is on everybody’s lips after the complete collapse of the team in the second half against Fremantle last week. When Bayley Fritsch missed his shot at goal 23 minutes into the second term, the Demons were 30 points ahead but from that point onward they were comprehensively overwhelmed as their structures fell apart all over the park. Unlike what occurred on a number of occasions during their

    SURVIVAL MODE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons managed to survive a day of challenges that in many ways mirrored their AFL counterpart Narrm from the previous day but Casey emerged undefeated from their Round 10 encounter with Frankston at Skybus Stadium. Like the Demon seniors they were undermanned and lost players due to late withdrawals, went through an arm wrestle in the first quarters, took over the game in the second to set up a big lead before a late goal gave hope to their opponent and limped through a last half

    DEES-MANTLED by George On The Outer

    Well the streak has finally ended, but in the worst possible way, when Fremantle absolutely dismantled Melbourne to record an emphatic 38 point win. This ended the 17 game winning streak of the Demons, but worse to report was that Melbourne led the game by nearly 5 goals in the second quarter, before the Dockers banged through 10 straight goals. In fact they kicked 13 goals to 1 from that point just before half time. So what happened?  Melbourne aren’t accustomed

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca
