WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - HARLEY BALIC

I predict he will be the best pick 66 we have ever used.

Just an observation really - one year deal reads to me he has one year to show something - if he doesn't I suspect his time at the MFC may be short lived

Not sure how that can be construed as complicating anything - am I allowed to have an opinion ?

Balic took several leave of absences didn't he, citing homesickness? Maybe the one year contract is simply the club not overcommitting incase there is more to it?

One year contract - will need to go boom pretty quick !

One yr contracts are virtually non existent unless ur are over 30. 

He must be desperate to get back to Victoria so hopefully now he will be settled mentally and we can see the best of his footy and then extend his contract. 

If not it’s a one yr deal.

Smart move

Junk draft pick for a bloke who was highly rated in his junior years, and the flexibility to offload after 1 year if his supposed issues continue.

It's an extremely low risk pick that could pay off handsomely.

I approve of this trade.....😆

I'm excited to see how Balic goes next year. There's only upside so it's another very smart move by Mahoney and co.

Not so sure, pick #66 in 2010 actively helped draft Plugger McDonald

I've heard some not so good stories about him from people in the business, hopefully he can come good for us

You should read the Q & A interview that WJ posted above about his injuries and the isolation a young kid from interstate would experience in that environment rather than rely on scuttlebutt.

I hope it all comes good for him first and foremost.

And if both the club and player can benefit from the relationship then that would be the best possible scenario.

It's a great test for the club.

Pick 66 in 2010 was Paul Puopolo for Hawks. Not sure how that relates to my statement.

Which was traded to them, by us, along with Kyle Cheney, for the pick that drafted TMac.

I said for any pick 66 that we used at the draft,  not picks that were traded to get other picks. No need to complicate it.

Welcome Harley, Do hope that you feel at home at MFC, that you can get the body and the mind right, find the support, have a great pre-season and contribute to a great year ahead for the Ds!  Best of luck!

Hakiyamungu Rafiki. Wewe rafiki mbaya. Good gratious 'rafiki' you are a bad friend.

Change your name to Shetani,  Satan, though its pretty hard to not pass on those stories eh,? lol.

I'm really very happy with Balic and from what I have read only I am pretty sure he will fit in and will play good games for us next year.

Fair enough. I apologise for my (admittedly ridiculous) attempt to score internet points.

I guess there is always the possibility that he only wanted a one year contract if he thought he could within that 12 month period convince the club to extend him on much more financially rewarding terms. (Unlikely strategy , I admit as it's a very high-risk way to proceed.)

That would show some big kahunas.
