The big-bodied All Australian recorded another podium finish in this year’s club best and fairest underlining his important to the club’s defensive structure upon which its success in matches is so dependent.

"Another strong season from the Demons’ backline general, who finished third in the club’s best-and-fairest. Retained his place at full-back in the All-Australian team and was the first defender to hold Lance Franklin goalless this season in the Demons’ qualifying final loss. But he made headlines for the wrong reasons mid-year after his part in a restaurant scuffle with teammate Jake Melksham. Has another year to run on his deal." - Herald Sun

Steven May was huge for us again this year, he held the defence together despite a number of injuries to other key backs and apart from a major off field blunder was unbeatable on field. He is a real leader and competitor on field and I hope he can stay that way for another 2-3 years. I love the way he plays the game and he will enjoy having Grundy and a fully fit Salem out there next year so we won’t be so predictable.

Sadly blotted his copybook though. That fracas was a bit of a turning point - in the wrong direction. 
 

I love his play and his onfield standards. But I don’t think he had listened hard enough to the famous advice from Vandenberg.

The best recruit our club has ever brought in from another club. Ever.

Is worth a debate, my love for Jeff White remains strong, May hasn't topped Jeff yet, we had many good years from him. May has Moloney, Powell, Bizzell, Vince, Cross, Lewis etc. covered though. Of the current crew, Lever and Langdon go pretty well, Hibberd hardly shabby.

Best in my lifetime.  Jeff was great, but Steve May was a key plank in taking us to premiership glory and I think that tops Jeff's very respectable contribution.  Him still wanting to bury the Bulldogs with minutes to go in the final quarter of the GF speaks volumes about his competitiveness that helped get us there.

Jamie Shanahan and Anthoney Ingerson were also pretty decient recruits down back from other clubs, but May is bloody awsome.

Elite.

When you look back over the years we have had a lot of success with players coming in from other clubs at critical times and our current bunch are no exception.!!

I loved Carl Ditterich and the bunch of North Melbourne players that RDB bought over with him but Steven shades them all.!!

Had another great year and was a rock down in defence again. His mid year concussion and then drunken fight were a low point and set the club on the wrong course which was disappointing. Still a great year by May. His game against Buddy in week one of finals was possibly the best game I've ever seen from a defender. He absolutely embarrassed an all time great that night, and Buddy is still stuck in his back pocket months later!

Your old school, hard nose player that has to learn a bit of humility.

Love the bloke , he’s a gun and let’s hope he has learned his lesson.

hopefully it’s nothing but noticed he was in SE Asia with the GF while the majority of the team was at Nibblers wedding.

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    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
