    On the Sunday after the eagles beat Melbourne in the prelim there was the wafl grand final at optus stadium and it was the 1st time the public could have a kick on the ground post game since the stadium opened. Anyway a lot of the publics afternoon was ruined when they trod on the massive turd dom tyson had left on the ground the day previous. Absolute dud of the highest order

    Won our B&F in 2017. Injured most of this year. Been a loyal servant, doesn't shit himself in big games too.

    Was playing out of position. He’s not a winger’s backside. He had some pace early days but for whatever reason he’s all but lost it. That’s the whole point we’ve moved him on. He excels in the position where we can’t squeeze him in- inside mid.
    Kidding surely.

    Tyson would be Carlton’s second best mid by that far it doesn’t bear thinking about.

    Face it. Murphy is finished.

    Murphy is cooked and you lose every game he plays in, he's played in about 1 win in the last 23 games he's played, not having a go but he is a major part of the reason why you're struggling

    Go ask anyone other than a Carlton fan if they want Murphy?

    Ask them and it will somehow prove Tyson is a better player?

    Nice to see some genuine dialogue here (with The Filth Wizard), instead of the usual digs. Well done.

    Yeah, I'm not expert on the Melbourne playing list, but you guys have been saying this over and over again. It makes sense to me. So, yeah, I don't know what these people are saying. I can only conclude they think that "It's a weird choice for Preuss" is the same thing as "It's a weird choice for Melbourne."
    Not weird, see below and also comments by Dees posters (eg above) re need for ruck depth.

    And, in reverse, Preuss was surplus to ruck requirements and didn't want to be there, and we need midfield depth.

    I don't know what preposterous deals were suggested that didn't come to fruition, but this deal is "about right" to my mind, give or take.

    Midfield depth, particularly in inside mids. Contrary to popular belief, we're skinny there. (Cunnington, Jacobs, Anderson, Ahern the main ones. When Jacobs, in particular goes out, we're stuffed. People need to remember JZ is playing forward.

    At the very least, quality depth. I think he'll have a symbiotic effect for Higgins, Jacobs, Ahern, Dumont in particular. He'll help fill Jacobs role (support around the stoppages) if he's injured. He'll allow us to use Higgins/Dumont as flexibly as we need to (they tend to be inside/outside mids) and he'll allow further time for Ahern to develop his fitness base.

    It might be; I wouldn't have Goldie pegged as a great teacher. And, it might be about 'continuing' the learning journey versus disrespecting the previous teacher.

    Tyson is a B grade mid but will be a decent get for North.

    I want to know from Kangas fans why Preuss hasn’t been given more of a chance? How good can he be? His best games look like a combination of Witts and Mumford.

    He trained with Goldy for 4 years. I'd say he's learned all that he could from him.

    Unlike my Demon colleagues I think Murphy has been and still is a much better player than Tyson, but using stats in 2018 to critique Dom's game isn't worthwhile. He was made to play an outside role, which he basically can't. It's why he's been shipped on.

    In 2016 and 2017 he averaged 25 disposals, but that dropped to 20 this year in his new role.

    Dom's got some tricks on the inside, but his ball use can be poor (read infuriating) and he can take too long to make a decision.

    You don't get a thing, clearly. I wasn't getting at that. It's personal development. Sometimes you learn all you can from someone and need to move on so you don't stagnate. Working with Goldy and then Gawn...that's probably the best apprenticeship you could do for a ruckman. Arguable the two best rucks of the last 10 years (HM: Jacobs).

    The resident "experts" stated pretty much the same thing about Higgins & Waite.

    Goldstein and Daw are better.

    Big Maxy looking forward to training against the big body of Preuss. I’m thinking if Hogan stays it might be hard to play both rucks. Interesting to see how the coaches go about it.

    Easy.

    Preuss is the Casey ruckman.
