I wasn't aware GWS made a play for him last year. Interesting, could've picked up another Treloar/Shiel/Greene.

I believe they offered us pick 6 or 7 in return for Howe and maybe a later pick.

We also won't get band 1 compo because he isn't a free agent...

He's just put off contract negotiations, according to The Age.

Demons high-flyer Jeremy Howe puts off contract negotiations

For the many highlights he provides, he doesn't actually do much on the field besides that. If we were offered pick 6/7, i'd jump at it. Throw in Grimes and Bail whilst we're at it (though that may lower the pick we get back).

Oh joy, another year of Frawley-esque media attention. Wonderful.

Was the club informed of this news at half-time I wonder?

Big difference here is that he isn't an unrestricted free agent. Plenty of water to go under the bridge.

But it also continues to highlight the need for us to continue to improve. Give Howe every reason to stay and it won't be a problem.

Learn about the free agency rules before you post your golden ticket rubbish Curry. Amazes me how little you know about football.

Oops! Something has changed since this morning! Maybe the manager didn't get the response he wanted. Maybe the club said fine go and chase the market: "Melbourne said they were content with Howe's decision and the likelihood of resigning him. "As a club we are comfortable with Jeremy's decision. Players go about negotiating their contracts in different ways and we respect their right to do so," a club spokesman said."

So be it. I'm over stressing over players who want to move on. I only ask that they give 100% when playing for the club. Franklin was a great example of this. Then que sera sera.

Not that Howe is one of my more favorite players, but if we lose him, i think supporters could become a little disillusioned with the AFL. Especially if he ends up at the Hawks or the Cats, who lets face it, don't really need him to continue to make finals. I think that it is less to do with Howe and more to do with the principle of it.

His manager said today talks weren't on hold... I reckon the age is incorrect here.

Apparently had a chat with Josh and were going away for a week or so to think before speaking again.

Weirdly enough, I could probably tolerate him going to GWS. I reckon their main interest in him is his theatrics, not his game. He's a great way to market the AFL brand in Western Sydney (considering nobody gives two [censored] about GWS currently) and they'll put him on good coin.

Have we all forgotten his numerous ineffective matches in 2014? And Roosy's frustrated spray at quarter time to him and Watts? He's got a lot to learn.

Oh look who's chiming in with another snide remark. You've proven your analytical depth with your sterling '2 comes before 3' argument. Run that by us again Mr.Football, it was so well considered and articulated

change 'band 1 compensation' to 'anything decent in trade from another club' then. Same deal

If a player misses any part of the preseason, and then fails to perform in the season, he gets a 'golden ticket' from some of the weaker minds around here who excuse his lack of quality with an 'interrupted preseason' comment. Watch it happen. Thankfully there were no new recipients from tonights game.

I love his marking but his a one trick pony.

If he decides to leave then it's not a big deal.

Oh yeah I just made the whole thing up. There has never been a player get completely excused for having an interrupted preseason. I must have imagined it. Do you think I GAF what you 'take a liking to' ? If you are offended because I regularly make you look like the goose that you are, just suck it up and try to make more sense occasionally.

Yeah 'agreed'. Solid argument on the issue being discussed which is preseason injuries.

Is somebody making a pointless snide comment? Yes I agree with that. Pathetic

WTF is a sunken chest

You seem to be a little extra frustrated and snappy round these parts at the moment C&B. Had your period come a little early this month?

Fact is that we can match any offer given for Howe, and we have the money to do so. Things are firmly in our favour.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
