    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    It's taken three days for them to determine that's their best offer? What a waste of everyone's time.

    Farewell Dean Kent

    I always liked him when he played, but there's no point matching a 3-year offer to somebody who can't get on the park. Good luck to Kent, but I really can't see much sense in this for the Saints.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I don't see much point haggling over deals like this when we've got bigger fish to fry (May, Hogan, Kolodjashnij, Preuss, etc). We were never going to get much more for Kent than that. Edit: I managed to spell Kolodjashnij correctly on the first attempt, but stuffed up the spelling of Preuss...

    The Williams/Daw comment was obviously (or apparently not), a bit of a joke. I'm aware that North have some very good players, but I don't think that they're in a position that they can't afford to add a couple more big names. I don't have any knowledge of North's current cap situation or whether they've got players who are signed for unders, but I'm sure that there are ways that they could make it work if they were able to get both Kelly and Gaff to commit. Like you've said, players at Richmond have taken cuts to allow them to sign Lynch and Dusty. Who's to say that Ziebell, Brown & Co. wouldn't sign for unders if North had already reached some sort of agreement in principle with Polec/Kelly/Gaff/whichever other names they're trying to lure over? They also could have front-loaded the contracts of some of their current big names to allow them to sign FAs in the coming few seasons. Anyway, this post is all just speculation. What isn't speculation is that North is in to Kelly, and they're confident of getting him at the end of next season. I don't know how they plan to do it and I don't know what they're offering up, but my source is reliable.

    Just passing on what I've heard, but they're very confident that they can manage it. If Richmond can find room for Lynch in a team that has Dusty, Rance, Riewoldt, Prestia and Cotchin, I'm sure North can add Kelly and Gaff to a team that has Marley Williams and Majak Daw.

    They've apparently got a lot more room than you'd think. They've had a "war chest" for years now, but haven't managed to secure a big name. Don't be surprised to see them finally land a couple of big targets in the coming years.

    One can only hope. If they add Gaff, Kelly and Polec, all of a sudden they're looking pretty good. That being said, if Kelly does come back to Victoria, I'd rather see him go to a club like North than to Essendon/Hawthorn/Richmond/Collingwood.

    I've never posted inside info on here before, so thanks in advance for the abuse. I've heard from what I consider to be a very good source that North Melbourne are extremely confident that Kelly will play out 2019 at GWS then head to North on a longterm deal. North were heavily into him last year, but their list management team had the feeling all along that he'd re-sign with the Giants on a two-year deal before coming back to Victoria for 2020 onwards.

    Preliminary Final Time Announced

    There isn't a supporter base that I despise more. As dirty as I feel saying this, if we lose this week, I really hope that Hawthorn go over there and knock them off.

    Finals Tickets

    When you go to purchase the tickets there's a section there that asks for a code, which is the barcode on the back of your membership card (which is the same number that the club would have emailed you this evening).

    Finals Tickets

    Is there a kind-hearted fellow Demonlander that has a barcode that they don't plan on using? I've converted some new Australians into Demons supporters and they are keen to go to the match with me (we managed to get tickets together for the elimination final), however I'd love to avoid the stress of having to wait until the public on-sale. Thanks in advance!

    2018 Membership Thread

    Did all members receive their scarf with their membership pack? I received the membership pack but no scarf, and heard rumours of some people receiving multiple scarfs. Not too fussed about whether or not I get it, but would just like to know what's going on.

    NHL

    Well done to Pittsburgh. As much as I would've like to have seen Nashville win it, the Penguins were the better team.
