Oliver's football resume to date:

-3× All Australian 

-4× Best and Fairest

-2× AFLCA player of the year

-Premiership player

It's insane to think that this guy is barely half way through his career.

Add 150 more games, maybe a Brownlow, another 2 B&F and another 3xAA (excluding all his Premiership medals) and much as I hate to say it...move over Robbie Flower. That Gawn and Petracca are in the same team at the same time is nuts. We have to win at least one more premiership and hopefully 2-3 more with these guys in  our team.

Goody's done far more walking than talking

I reckon we need a vote. Something like ‘Is Goodwin the right guy’.

Just throwing out there. Oh, wait.

Pfft my table was way closer to the stage. Besides she’s brunette whereas I’m more an Oskar Baker shade of red.

Jordon wasn't dropped, he was clearly hampered by his knee injury from r19.

Goody:

Winning after winning 

Tough and brutal

competition 

We finished 2nd but in the end after the finals, disappointly if hurt 

Wanted to do it for Melbourne faithful and enjoy a win at the MCG 

Aim to create winning behavior and culture of success 

Last 2 weeks analyzing what needs improvement 

+10 consecutive wins 

+growth and premiership of Casey (!!!) Mark Corrigan ✅

ways to get better - culture and game style and adding VFL talent

Need to put pieces together to get back to the top

I look at the top 10 and think what a group of talent like Iv'e never seen before.

Sure Goody and Dees have some issues but with hard work and smart recruiting I'm looking forward to 2023 to watch this list grow again. (Someone here a while ago predicted LJ would be 15th - close at 14th) ahead of only compromised layers. Dissappointing end to an heroic 3 years with us. But best wishes to him)

And Clarry as a once in a generation talent .

I’m sure some will never accept it, but it’s crystal clear that the coaches really value what role players like ANB (8th tonight) bring to the club.  It’s not all about the commonly talked about stats.

True that.

However it doesn't mean ANB is not also in the" bottom 6" and is  not as good as role players in the Premiers " bottom 6"

Clarry is a Champion.  Absolutely one of our greatest players ever. 


Trac runner up and deserves high praise for another sensational year. Well spoken young man. 

Mayzy getting third is great recognition for his role and his backline leadership.  Love his speech.  Relaxed after a few “reds”.

If they "lowballed" Jadyn surely it means they can't balance their books .

Paying $600,000 for Grundy?

Imagine the list carnage if they'd had to pay to keep Jackson. 

They were already stuck with Weideman for another year and no one  else wanted him( unlike Hunt)

Geez Loiuse..

You make tough decisions early so you don’t end up doing a Collingwood who will be paying around $700K next for players not on their list

its clear we don’t see Hunt as part of our plans and the coaches expect Bowie etc to replace him next year

Surprised to see ANB above Langers. His work rate is obviously highly rated.

I think it is more the role he plays where he helps the backs out and yes, uses his workrate to link through the middle. But he also does some disruption around stoppages for CO13 and CP5. Not to mention allowing CP5 to pizz off forward sometimes by himself as he follows his bloke.

I actually think it is a problem to have a FORWARD have that much responsibility that isn’t to getting in the right spots for us to move the ball and hit dangerous spots in the F50.

Next year, we need to tweak our web and the direction to our forwards so we actually have players coming at the ball carrier. We also need to up our pressure again but let’s not get into it in this thread. 

This thread is to celebrate our Demon God Clayton. May we all live in eternal damnation and evil fire at his altar.

Amen

Both can be true. He played VFL after being omitted from the afl side, that’s dropped. But it was injury related.

I think his form started to tail off a fraction before injury anyway. He’s our fittest mid, I believe he even beats Langdon on training gps, but it’s a long season for still a young player.

Demonland voters have once again picked the same winner as the Club - and in this instance have the same Top 6, albeit slightly different order.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
