Tom McDonald Re-Signs for 4 Years

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Great news!  He was looking for a bit of tenure so this takes him till 30.  Delighted for all.

Reckon this makes us a 'Destination Club' - simply because of all the talent we have re-signed.  Player Managers will be knocking on our door and we will be in the control seat and can say 'no thank you, no room at the inn!'.  Unless it is someone we really want.

On a side note, in this article Tom says he is over his foot injury https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/tom-mcdonald-commits-to-melbourne-20180605-p4zjie.html

"...What also has McDonald happy is that he has found comfort with his footy boots, revealing the foot problem which had him in doubt for the clash against the Crows was a result of experimenting with the positioning of the studs on his boots......I got a bit sore with it. Since then, I have felt pretty good with it," he said.

Good to hear he can play relatively pain free.

Max Gawn and Neville Jetta say hi.

Just sayin.

Even a broken watch tells the right time twice a day.

All of BP's many failed early draft selections say hi as well.

This is a serious win to get it done so quickly, creates a vibe, not that I ever thought he was going. We would have to be top 4 for destination clubs (Sydney/Geelong/Richmond) if you removed the go home/state factor and just focused on culture/prospects of team success. Adelaide people jump ship pretty regularly, WCE doesn't seem to do particularly well nor Collingwood. Hawthorn has been the benchmark for awhile but their stock price has slipped i reckon.

Delicious 

Bif day for the marketing Dept. AND the recruiting team.

The sales pitch now to Gaff, Wines or anyone else of quality can be:

"... how would you like to kick the ball into a Hogan/TMac forward line..."

What a legend. I Expect him to vice captain under Viney for many years

he commitment and dedication and second to none. I rememeber reading about the hours he would travel for each training session as a junior. 

sets a great example - not good at set shot kicking?  ill practice relentlessly until I am good.

Just checked my phone on lunch break and saw this news. Absolutely wrapped! Huge signing and will be a rock in our forward line for years to come.

Now only Brayshaw is left and we’ve locked away all our stars!

By far the most important part of this is increases the likelihood Omac will extend his contract!

I really like how the Dees have been having weekly positive news stories like this! Re-signings, new sponsors, it all amounts to a stable off-field environment. Keeps us positively focused on the week ahead! Onya Tommy-Gun! Go Dees!!!

How many smiley faces does one need?  For that post I apologize, I thought the answer was none.  But for some it would seem it's "many".

Rounds out the vision nicely.  Good work and highly believable.

Well done Tommy t.

Thanks for being a club man, and most likely, a one club player.

 

Great news, & this is the way to win in September.
