    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Thanks PD. Based purely on my own judgement, I would not have been keen on chasing May. However, over recent years our recruiters have had considerable success in making the right calls at this time of the year, and only a fool would ignore that. They are paid professionals, and they see and analyse a hell of a lot more than us mere fans. Your post confirms (to me) that it's very easy for us fans to focus on the trees while ignoring the forest.

    Nup. A purgative!

    I'm worried about this increasing trend on Demonland. I literally cringe, and move immediately to the next post, as soon as Dr.D's avatar appears on my screen. 😬

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    This is an all round win. We get the backup for Max which we desperately needed*, North get to bolster their midfield stocks, Dom leaves on good terms with our Club, and he probably gets to play at the top level, in a position where he can have his best impact. If only all trades were like that! And good luck to Dom. He served us very well in a time of need, and he should be proud of his time at Melbourne. Further: who knows what gem Jason Taylor will be able to snag from obscurity with a pick in the 60s; * I think the impact that Braydon Preuss will have will go well beyond being a back-up to Max. I reckon he will surprise quite a few!

    Farewell Dean Kent

    Seems around his true worth to me relative to other comparable trades, and his 'dodgy' hammys and shoulders. Good luck to him. He probably needs plenty of that just to get on the park consistently.

    Fingers crossed that the colt from old Regret doesn't get away!

    No Massive Goalsquare in 2019

    Common sense prevails (which is an unusual thing to say about the AFL).

    Aaron vandenBerg not going - signs a new deal!!!

    Excellent news on an otherwise 'no news' day for the MFC. Thanks for sticking with us Vanders, in what I expect was a very tough call to make. I hope our Club has done some stuff to make things easier for you on the family front, and that we can reward your loyalty with something special!

    Demonland Podcast Featuring Peter Jackson (17/10)

    Great get guys. Many thanks!! I'd love to get an appreciation of Peter's 'gut feel' on how we now rate relative to other clubs against the following criteria (eg. mid table, top 3 etc): Melbourne as a destination club? Club finances (with special mention of the impact of the decision to relinquish pokies)? Club culture? our list?

    Reading this thread over the last few days has totally done my head in ....... and now this!. Bugger me! I wonder if we'll never know the the story behind the story. Doubtful I guess. I just hope and pray that it doesn't have any adverse implications for our Club.

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    I'm sitting here trying to sort out some very complex tax stuff by the deadline that ATO have put on me, as well as keeping a close eye on the trade moves affecting our Club. I'm not sure which is the more frustrating (or important for that matter!).

    .......... or the prognosis on Jesse's narvicular. (MFCSS?).

    2018 Player Reviews: # 45 Declan Keilty

    I think Dec has the advantage of not being a 'one trick pony'. I'm sure I've seen / read that he has gone forward on occasions and taken a telling mark or kicked a crucial goal. Goody likes flexibility in players.

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    Exactly ..... and imo he hasn't 'regressed' at all, but has been 'overtaken' as an inside mid by Viney, Oliver, Brayshaw and Harmes, who are among the best in the business.
