Re: Stef Martin

I think Martin has dreams that he can kick and I rarely see him hit a target, not the only one mind you.
He's going through the Paul Johnson phase where he thinks he can do anything so he's trying a bit too hard atm. In this case though Stef can actually play tall so he belongs out there unlike PJ. Give him a chance to work on his kicking and he'll be a great asset to the team in due course.

Re: Stef Martin

Stefan Martin 2011 Review:
Todd Viney said:
Stef was one of the real finds for us this year. He developed really nicely as a second ruckman, when Mark Jamar went down with injury. He stood up and was fantastic for us. Overall, he developed enormously this year. But he’s still got a lot of improvement and needs to keep working on his kicking, contested marking and work in the forward line. If he can keep improving like he did this year, he will be really exciting.

Article: Attack looms for Martin

On himself:

At this stage, it looks as though I’m going to be playing as a forward for the majority of the game. And then I’ll be playing ruck for a smaller percentage of the game.
On the group:

The whole playing list has generally dropped a little bit of weight. That’s been due to a little bit of change of diet and a larger volume of running.

The goal is to maintain our strength or increase it. I don’t feel any less strong than I did last year, but I’m a bit lighter, so hopefully that works out.

MFC Website: Martin gains momentum

ETIHAD Stadium might be a bogey ground for Melbourne, but one Demon - big man Stef Martin - says he enjoys playing at the venue, primarily due to his basketball background.

Martin, an elite junior basketballer before joining the Demons, said the ground lends itself to players who have played both sports.

“I like the ground. It’s a bit smaller and it’s indoors and the conditions don’t affect games too much, which I like, personally,” he told melbournefc.com.au...
