Rookie (1/10)



  1. Harmes is an absolute liability tonight. Has he had a clean effective disposal? Some of the handballs to each other are absolute hospital balls to zero advantage. Combine that with the umpiring again it’s so hard to watch.
  2. Put that one down to Petracca, Hunt and Selection Panel. For the 2nd week in row Petracca absolutely disgusting by foot inside 50. Butchered multiple easy chances to deliver the most basic of kicks. <50% DE again... Hunt, absolute momentum killing last quarter. All the praise we've given him for playing such a more composed, mature role this year slowing down hitting the right target and taking the first option - gone in a matter of 3 awful game losing blunders holding the ball. All the old habits are back, and the same inept forward setup.
  3. Re-watch the game... Brayshaw was sensational as the defensive wing. Don't recall him losing a single one on one, and his 1% efforts were fantastic. He did everything you could ask him to do without the football. Daisy Pearce was on the money all game, that he was doing a brilliant, thankless job on the wing.
  4. As someone that's gone through 3 ACL tears, 4 surgeries and the subsequent recoveries playing footy, 6 months is definitely not "plenty long enough." 9 - 12 months would usually be the minimum to have sufficient nerve and vascular growth through the graft (ligamentisation) to achieve the strength of the original ACL and also provide the brain with enough information about the strain you're putting on your knee. At 6 months unless you're rocking some incredible quads and have one of those rare recoveries, you're taking an enormous risk of redoing your knee, or as is often the case, doing the opposite knee through unconsciously favouring it through a hasty recovery.
  5. Was out for the day, watched it on delay so avoided Demonland - and boy I’m glad I did; the response to a win on here, and the first game of the season is genuinely sad. We were like 1-10 on clearances after the first, so won clearances for the rest of the game. Out defence was fantastic, and the transition out of it for most of the game was also great to watch - Rivers, Hunt, Langdon; even Spargo and Kozzie having decent runs. The link up will only getting better as the season goes. Yes there were fumbles, so did both teams - and so has every game so far. Yes we dropped marks and missed goals, but so has ever game so far in round 1; 29 behinds Tigers v Blues and 20 Pies v Dogs. Lighten the [censored] you sad miserable pessimistic old bastards, footballs back and we’re on the board!
  6. Wow... I had legitimately forgotten just how good he looked marking it overhead with confidence - monstered some of those opponents. Good jump, step and could actually sprint to contests and for those marks... Watching that it's hard to believe it could be anything but an injury (long or short term) that has derailed him.
  7. At no point during that entire game, did Melbourne ever look in the slightest bit like they had a plan or tactic... Watching turnover after turnover turn into a Port Adelaide kick to kick training drill resulting in a F50 mark and goal crushed me... I want to cry it’s that hard to keep watching this team fail with the absolute basics, and doing it for 4 quarters...
  8. Thanks @binman ? Have gone for quality over quantity over the years... particularly enjoy Joeboy’s contribution each game day, and I was irked! Just to stay on topic: Brayshaw - Barbieonions the ball butcher
  9. This would have to be the worst 3-word player assessment I’ve seen in years of stalking this forum... SMH
  10. This year would have been even harder without watching Max dominate his role at times. Am with all those that want him made Captain. Congrats - hopeful more plaudits and jackets to come in a long, illustrious career!
  11. I find a reason to despise these AA teams every year. The fact Hawkins made the side (lucky to be in the top 40 players in the league) and Fyfe Captain does it this year.
  12. As a Queenslander, no. After our improvement last year my partner (Collingwood supporter) and I chose to get Interstate memberships and fly down to Brisbane and Melbourne to see more of the football. I’ll be going back to using my spare time and money on holidays I don’t return depressed and disappointed from. More gutted and disheartened than any of the 30+ years I’ve supported the club 2bh ?.
  13. To those that talk about he would have to spend 40%+ of the time at FF, and doesn't have the speed for the position. Given the Melbourne method is to bomb long and high inside 50, usually to about 20 - 30m out, wouldn't this be exactly the type of person we want sitting at FF? There were times the big fella man handled Kruezer in the ruck and in marking contests. He lost out a couple, but for the most part he competed or brought it to ground. I also recall his intro in the NAB was 2 marks on a strong lead, and careening into a big pack... again, exactly what we would ask for? While again not quick, I saw a tall bloke that was unafraid to throw his body-weight around to win a ground ball in the centre. Something that Melbourne have been criticised for inside 50. Surely they can play in the same team, while he might not get any quicker, the endurance can only improve, and I've been encouraged by the way he plays.
  14. Jones - Can’t hit target Viney - lost his tricks Gawn - gives it everything Oliver - kick the football Brayshaw - leave in middle Hore - better than most May - won his battles Lever - will only improve  Fritsch - look better today Salem - something wasn’t right Frost - missed his dash Hibberd - past his best Baker - deserves another chance Harmes - only composed mid Petracca - untapped potential frustrates Hannan - had little involvement Weideman - given no chance Spargo - coughed up regularly Garlett - physicality is embarrassing Hunt - only moving target T. McDonald - useless legless liability  Wagner - little to commend
