You responded to a comment about what the Dees should he concerned about.

And you basically said should be concerned about Viney dropping the ball after taking the tackler on.

Your interpretation of the rules shouldn’t concern the Dees
I was being sarcastic. Clearly didn't make it clear enough. My bad

No. He's an uncontested marking forward only. We have known this for almost 10 years.
Brown did take two contested marks on the night and averages 1.3 a game on the season.

But the problem is with the amount of ball directed at him those numbers are still low.

Then what’s worse is when Brown doesn’t take the mark he is often comprehensively beaten so Melbourne’s crumbing forwards are then left out of position.

Add to that Brown is rarely taking uncontested marks on the lead, and his range seems to have dropped to 45 metres.

It is a major problem but I’m not sure if Melbourne are brave enough to try an alternative this late in the year.

Why the 10+ posts specifically about Viney over the last few months?
There are a couple of clearly anti-Melbourne Lions posters that inhabit the game day threads. Weird.

It used to be a little tribe of Weagles but they’ve mostly disappeared, much in the same way a cheesecake left alone with NicNat would disappear.

This is the moment the ball is coming in before Pickett kicks the winner. Carlton are man on man with no spare players back to help defend.
Horrendous coaching and on-field leadership to not not have some numbers behind the ball then.

Dees also have more mids pushing forward with no opponent to be seen.

This is how teams are beating up. Evident last week when you guys stepped up your pressure and tackling in the second half. I agree with Carlton being done but they’ll be up there for a while after this season.

I think Catlton should go after Gawn and move TDK in defence... Structurally that is where they are breaking down...

After watching Weitering get destroyed by a cooked Melksham I never want to see his name in the same sentence as Steven May ever again. FMD imagine getting dominated by JAKE MELKSHAM
See not even Melbourne supporters understand Melksham. It’s like his game was specifically for Essendon supporters. He knows what we like. 😍

Carlton players need to attend Collingwood training on how to finish the last 2 minutes of the game

Fantastic game in which we just fell short against the reigning premiers at full strength.

Lots of positives for us as our pressure was off the charts but we just butchered the ball by foot to much but that can be brought upon by the Demons fantastic pressure.

If we play like that next week we are a massive chance of beating the Pies and one of Kennedy / Hewitt / Cerra and / Williams would be a massive inclusion.

Good win Demons in the end though but i saw enough signs to be happy for next season finals or not this year.

Hewett isn't an A-Grader. Has had a good year, but is not an A-Grader.
He ended up on your list because he isn't an A-Grader. He was expendable.
You are entitled to be wrong, George has elevated his game this year being played in different role he isn't the 20 touch defensive tagger you had he is now a 30 touch 4 centre clearance beast who has been every bit as good as Cripps.
