Could you please ask, what is Jakes role within the forward line and how does his role differ from JVR/Chandler/Kozzie/ANB (both as players and who gives feedback/direction in the forward line)?


Maybe a sneaky 2nd question…. How annoying is James Sicily on field?

Ask him if wants to be a forward coach for mfc after he retires.  He just understands the game so well. The interview after the game his comment about Sicily following the contest line and how he planned to play him was great.

would be curious to know how he found the year-long sabbatical as a result of the peptides scandal effected his mindset and future planning, given that his year-long ban was his first year at mfc

subsequently to that hibberd came in the following year - how much difference did it make having someone who had had the same experience starting at a new club have?

how did he see his transition to being a predominantly defensive forward at the mfc occurring? when he started at the mfc he was a defender / sweeper and a quasi wing before getting dropped and then switching to a forward line player; from memory the break-out game in that role was playing on johanissen from the bulldogs (in the game lever did his knee)

Well done on getting this exclusive interview with Jake Melksham, Andy! Brilliant work! 😎👍🏻

 

I would ask him if he is enjoying his new role in the Demons forward line which seems to be negating the opposition team's primary interceptor and is he keen to play on next season?

 

Furthermore, I would just personally congratulate Jake Melksham that he has now played over 100+ games for the Melbourne Demons and hopefully he can reach 250+ AFL games. I think he is getting closer to that milestone? 🤔

 

On a slightly different topic, I am still hopeful @Demonland (Andy) can possibly lure the very elusive Mark "Choco" Williams to do an interview? I would be extremely excited about that! 😃

Please ask him about fatigue caused by the  Carlton match and the effect on kicking for goal and short kicking for goal in the Hawks match 

thanks

Can you ask him what is his top 5 goals for the MFC?

I will always remember the 2018 SF against Hawthorn and his game winning goal in the last quarter from outside 50.

The way he scored that goal showed me his character. I've admired that aspect of his personality and have had faith in him ever since.

My recollection is that it was his relationship with Simon Goodwin that lured him to the mighty MFC from the Bombers:

Would like to understand what it was about Simon that motivated that decision at the time and if he's noticed much change in Simon Goodwin the person and coach since his time at the MFC.  Also what is it that he's most appreciated about being a Melbourne player and part of the current playing group.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
