    Training - Saturday 12th January, 2019

    Throw in Goody and Chaplin to the extras group as well - having just gone for a lap around the tan post-session

    What's up with Gus?

    I was talking to someone over Christmas who would know, they seemed to indicate there was a calf issue, but then again they didn't even know for certain... I agree completely with everything already said around that we're not exactly entitled to know everything that's going on - but it definitely speaks to the manner in which MFC communicates these things

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    We all do mate. This is one of the last, and most critical, pieces in the puzzle to becoming an elite high-performing operation. I look at what Cricket Victoria have done with Junction Oval - and I know that there's always politics and timing that get in the way of these things - but wow, what a missed opportunity that was! Even the bloody Saints are now getting their act together back in Moorabbin!

    2019 Fixture

    Saw this widely reported as well - which as a general rule, when it comes to fixturing, means it's fairly probable ...but this would also be great! Would like to see this become a regular fixture too. I think we can expect maybe one Thursday night and I would hope Travis Auld took note of our August and particularly September crowds in rewarding us with some prime time slots. And on a side note, please no more Carlton Friday nights FFS!

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    The impression I got from GB's B&F speech was that they were close to securing an alternative site, not in Yarra Park. This isn't based on anything just what I read between the lines in the speech

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I think Jesse's foot is a lot worse than has been speculated thus far. He was out of contract at the end of 2019 and would've needed to negotiate a new deal and/or entertain offers from rival clubs, potentially at a time where the full extent of his navicular injury has come to light. There is definitely an element of Jesse making hay while the sun is still up for him in the sense that he can satisfy all the other off field elements he was after, whilst absorbing a bit of a haircut to his $ and years. This is not THE reason but A reason for this trade for mine

    He just did a live cross for The Trade Table on Ch.9 - must admit that I was pleasantly surprised with his attitude towards the trade. Seems like he feels the need to prove himself all over again which is healthy. He's a massive wrap on Goody - sounds like a sit down with him is what convinced him to come to the MFC

    FMD Dodoro did a deal

    Rumour File

    Their members for a start, potential future players and their respective managers, let alone players they already have on their list. Thanks also for re-iterating my thoughts in the end

    Rumour File

    Probably, hopefully.

    Rumour File

    How much of this is now just the so-called 'optics'? Geelong need to be seen to be playing hardball and not rolling over. They know they have a captive buyer for Kelly and he is dead set on getting back to Perth one way or another and will inevitably make it back west. So they need to be seen to take full advantage of the situation. If Kelly leaves in a year's time (along with Gary) Geelong is cactus and their midfield cupboard is bare, ex-Dangerwood.

    Odds on Dodoro squibbs the Shiel trade

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Lloyd has absolutely no idea. Not a single thing he has gone with as 'fact' has eventuated so far this trade period

    I'd back Mahoney in

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    The purple headed warrior is reporting that Fagan is in Perth personally attempting to seal the Neale deal. Could still be more to play out yet

    Told myself that there's no [censored] way I'm staying for this! And yet here I am...

    Hoges as a defender? Pert's feet are barely under the desk and match committee is already leaking

    Tony 'two phones' needs a win as much as anyone this trade period

    Jesse is back in Perth now. Interesting to see what, if anything, develops over the next couple of days

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Regardless of mail Fremantle and Peter 'tinker' Bell seem to be butchering everything they put their minds to so far this trade period. The potential Neale trade looks like it could fall through this week

    Rumour File

    There was talk that Jack Steven was gettable, with strong interest shown by Geelong among others. I had seen that MFC had inquired also but seems like StKFC have quashed the possibility of that happening

    Demonland Podcast Featuring Peter Jackson (17/10)

    Does he grow tired of hearing junior staff members refer to him as "Peeeeeeteeerr Jaaackson" when they think he's out of ear shot but actually he isn't?

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    From what I've seen/heard you couldn't get a better bloke to be around a footy club and it looked like he'd built some good relationships with seemingly everyone at the MFC. Sad he couldn't crack the 100 club game mark after coming to us when we had barely any redeeming features except a coach who showed some faith and went after Dom. He definitely helped to bring our inside midfield game up to AFL standard in the early Roos years from the basket case it was prior to that. Found himself on the outer a bit this year, both figuratively and literally, and struggled to break back in despite playing 17 games. Battled manfully through injury setbacks and interrupted pre-seasons and I hope he can find a clean slate at NMFC and reach the potential he showed for us back in 2014-15. Go well Domma.
