  1. Ruck depth

    Yes Scott Jones is an option. Perhaps Keegan Brooksby Might draft Hayden McLean as forward/ruck
  2. The Liam Ryan thread

    It’s a yes from me. Pick 36 most likely
  3. 2017 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch

    Yes. It is his grandson. Cats might grab him at 35 ahead of Dees at 36. Probably Cats will take Balta at 22 (if available) and Ling at 24.
  4. Farewell Jack Watts

    It was like the Truman show. We sign off with Good afternoon, Good evening and Good night. History will judge the decision. How it was all done will also be debated. We wish Jack the very best, as a loyal Demon who will one day be back in some way to the club. Go Dees in 2018
  5. Mature Age Recruits

    Liam Ryan yes yes yes. He wont be a 7-10 year player. Look at 4-5 years and has some sensational moves. Worth a punt at pick 36,47
  6. The Matthew Ling Thread

    Thank you STMJ I have posted in the Petruccelle thread that I prefer Ling at pick 29 if available. He is quick. Skilled. Can really tackle and chase. Fits our requirements for an outside wing, but does possess toughness when needed. Can take the game on. Though Cats have picks 22 & 24 so Ling may not last.
  7. The Jack Petruccelle Thread

    Petruccelle floats in and out. A spasmodic player. He is fast. Sure. BUT turns over the footy too much and misses simple options. We don’t need that. Not a smart footballer. Pass!! Prefer Matthew Ling, Lachie O’Brien or Dylan Moore if they are still available at 29.
  8. 2017 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch

    29,31,36,47 Aim for Matt Ling, Dylan Moore, Toby Wooller and Hayden McLean
  9. 2017 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch

    Well done Steve, and agree with all except for Petruccelle. He floats in and out and does not work hard enough to run off the ball. Petruccelles disposal is 50/50 at best. Turns it over too much even when no pressure. For a pacy midfielder, yes you are spot on with Ling as he is as quick and classy and tough. Toby Wooller as a 3rd tall forward should be the priority for us at pick 35-36. Great mark. Good kick for goal. General disposal is excellent.
  10. Who is going onto the Banner?

    Jetta must be in. Now one of my favourites. Super competitor.
  11. Billy Hartung

    Hartung for pick 47. Yes. That’s about right
  12. Trade rumours

    Assume we are done. Wonder if any delisted players are on our recycling radar. None jump out at me.
  13. Farewell Jack Watts

    69% of Demonland survey participants wanted him to stay. I would imagine the less passionate non demonlanders would have wanted Jack to stay. Definite majority wanted him to stay. Sad day but history will judge the results. We all want MFC to succeed and Jack will always be a Demon man. Go Dees in 2018.
  14. Mahoney, get away

    Agree. Mahoney has had some wins and losses. At least he gets it done. Has brought in some very good talent as needed. Sure he paid overs for Lever. Sure we got shafted on Watts trade. But given last 4-5 years, think Mahoney deserves to stay on. ( but then again he has been inconsistent, his performance is sometimes lacking and may not adhere to standards!!)
