Just how lucky are we to have Jake Lever at the Melbourne Football Club?

His clutch one on one contest wins and strong on field leadership were crucial in his great game against the Hawks:

- 19 disposals 

- 13 marks

- 10 intercepts 

- 3 score involvements 

- 6 pressure acts 

- 322m gained 

... and 96 per cent game time. The most in the team.

Love the pod guys-one of the highlights of the week for mine.

My 2 points for this week that I would be interested to get your thoughts on:

1) Surely Melksham has cemented his spot for the rest of the season regardless of whether Fritsch, TMac or Grundy play again. He used to cop heat for putting on no defensive pressure and only being an offensive minded player who was ineffectual when the opposition had the ball but the roles he has played this year nullifying the oppositions intercept marker has been a great transformation in his game and important going forward for the team.

2) Tomlinson although having his colours lowered yesterday is also a lock for mine. Plays a sacrificial role and allows lever to do what he does best. On Brownlow night when Lever gets the 3 votes for yesterdays game he can thank Tomo for that.

When Hawthorn beat Collingwood recently, there were great wraps placed on Mitch Lewis, Jai Newcombe, Chad Wingard and of course James Sicily.

I'd like to hear the panel's view of Melbourne's performance yesterday in light of the fact that three of their star players from that game were missing - out injured.

Milkshake has become one of our most important players. Kicks goals (should have had 5 yesterday) and his shut down role on the oppositions best rebounding / marking defender has been key. Do the panel think we could play a forward line of Smith, Fritch, Melksham and JVR as the only real tall? I do not think Tmac, having missed so much footy both this year and last year will be the hero a lot of supporters are pinning there hopes on.

Andy, I just heard you say that we haven't put four quarters together in 2023, where in 2021 we did.

I'd love to know which game we played four quarters in. We didn't even manage 3 great quarters in the GF. Maybe the prelim against Geelong and the Brisbane QF. Prior to finals though, I don't recall us putting together 4 quarters.

Maybe that first Bulldogs game in 2021.

Suns game? Adelaide late in the year? Have no stats in front of me.

Maybe the Suns game, but the Adelaide game was a complete slog, where we banged on late goals to get it out to 7. Fritta went berserk.

And haha love the multi tasking.

@binman If Melbourne win the flag this year I put all down to your extreme confidence. Your confidence makes my optimism look like 1159pm on the doomsday clock!

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
