Does Kade make the grade, or will it be Chandlermonium

I was really happy for Chandler he settled straight into the game he showed his toughness and as Dazzle mentioned his elite kicking skills inside 50, he worked hard and was relentless in a fast flowing game. He really should have nailed that shot after the siren but did enough for a starting 22 next week.!!!

Just watched the mini package on Kayo. Plenty of highlights from chandler. Blocking kicks off the mark, goal assists, tackles and slotted a nice goal off his left in the 3rd. only blot was the missed set shot but their were worse misses on the night.

You have to reward that performance. He should be given a run of 3-4 games from here.

really impressed the way he threw his weight around against in contests against much bigger players.

The impending Pickett suspension should see him get a good run of games in.

So @DeeSpencer, Kade just scored an AFLCA vote for his performance, in the resounding win against a rated opposition in the Swans:

9 Clayton Oliver (MELB)

7 Christian Petracca (MELB)

6 Ed Langdon (MELB)

6 Brodie Grundy (MELB)

1 Lachie Hunter (MELB)

1 Kade Chandler (MELB)

 

Surely his value is up above the $2.00 Mark now?

Given a fair run at it, Kade has settled admirably with his confidence growing weekly. Now the radar is set he is delivering offensively on top of a sound defensive game. Given the degree of difficulty, he kicked some clutch goals against the swannies. Refreshing to see some new faces up forward this season. May the goals keep coming.

Hit a record high of $2.45 after the coaches votes, but has now settled at $2.25.

Work rate, strong hands and good tackle numbers are all positives. Hitting the scoreboard well. Decision making with the ball seems to have settled down.

Would still like to see a bit more speed and pressure.

From around the 0:57 mark there is some great behind the goals vision, showing how far Chandler ran to get on the end of the chain for his 3rd quarter goal.

That play and his subsequent goal swung all the momentum back in our favour after Sydney got within a kick.

What a brilliant video! Actually outlining some of the great running he does. 

If you don't know now you know!

Some people should be embarrassed with their cringeworthy posts in this thread and lack of footy knowledge

In the first three games this year Kade is ranked elite in 6 different categories according to greg Stafford.

Outstanding young man who has played brilliantly in a very difficult role as a small forward.

Has become a lock in our best 22 imo.

Just works so hard for the entire four quarters constantly pushing up the ground.

Has become a real asset for the team.

Even if didn't get the goal or even a possession, it still would of been impressive because he was prepared to do hard gut running with 100% commitment even though there was only a possibility of a goal or possession

Fast becoming a favourite of mine. He is one of those players who is always nipping at your ankles. Chases, harasses, tackles then gets up and creates an option moving forward and kicks goals. I’d love to see a bit of mongrel in his game and get in the oppositions face occasionally. Not sure that is his style tho..

A little more mongrel, or even arrogance, and I think he could be our version of Tom Papley - who most opposition supporters hate but Swans fans love.  Papely makes most teams nervous but then can bring his teammates to life running around like a excited toddler after he kicks a goal. If Chin can bring that into his game he'd also help the likes of Kossie because there's automatic extra attention paid elsewhere.

He is what he is and we should be happy. He’s tough and hard at the contest. That’s good enough. 
Mongrels are born. Don’t believe you can suddenly develop Mongrel. Toby Greene was born that way. No one coached him to add the mongrel component.

First three rounds this year Chandler is ranked elite in the following categories:

  • Goal Accuracy
  • Goal Assists
  • Score Involvements
  • Tackles inside 50
  • Kick Efficiency
  • Marks
  • Ranking Points

My mistake, its seven categories that he ranks elite for.

Just so happy for him. Did his time. Never complained. Was always just so happy for his senior teammates. Improved his craft and now he’s flying. You just love to see that! 

This.

On the subject, check out his reaction in the background when JVR got his holding the ball free prior to his third goal. Great stuff.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
