Fantastic news.

Huge part of us going onwards and upwards.

Keep him in the forward line with Hoges and we are well on our way.

Well done Tmac and MFC.

Genius move in the end. Interesting that Mahoney stated Tom was drafted as a forward/ruck who then had to play back

Yeah, thats why i suggested it, and OMc was starting to show a bit of something, just starting to show signs of emerging.

I thought OMc needed to have a bit more responsibility, and the rucks both got injured and Tom's kicking was an issue; at that time.

Frost was doing OK. Tommy either needed to play forward, because of his kicking issue, or in the future he wouldn't have been able to keep his spot.

The rest now is history, and a fantastic one;,, and his kicking transformation is amazing.  I heard he worked on it, with one of our coaches, and he has emerged an amazing footballer.

 

Same re Pedo, I was always optimistic for him, and with a bit of faith and some injuries, and his mindset getting better, he took the opportunity, and he is now a true Demon.

His efforts for team and club, i think is fantastic.

He and Hogan are so damaging and complimentary - it is underpinning our flag hopes really. We can get smashed in the middle and still kick a winning score because these two attract a confident transition from our players behind the footy. They know they will get rewarded when they turn the footy over and move it quick.

Which game was it when we first trialled him in the forward line in the second half of a match, and he suprisingly kicked a few and always looked like a solid lead up target? At the time it seemed kind of odd and gimmicky. Oh how times have changed.

I don't remember which game it was, but I wanted TMc out of defence, and the rucks got hurt.  Now I want him to venture back down there, just for cameos, with his newfound kicking skills, and confidence.

And I noticed how our transition thru mid ground improved, with him and Pedo using their size across the middle, which really aided our bringing of the ball thru, and into our F50.

 

We sort of stumbled into it... and then we stumbled out of it, when Gawn came back too soon, and Pedo was dropped.

This year seems we have learnt, that the midfield is better with the big guy up around the wing.

The worst thing about this news is that we get another terrible pun from Matt Burgan and Melbourne Media. "Tommy Gun Locked and Loaded"? You don't need puns for headlines anymore. We're in the 21st century. 

Other than that, great news.

Entertaining interview with T Mac on SEN a short time ago.

• Oscar and the club have started talks on his contract.

• The boys have a tennis, squash and board games club. Beats drinking beers mid-week IMO.

• Was asked about the “ Camp” and admitted he was in the middle of it and could see both sides of the argument. Basically said mountain out of molehill.

Can someone put up a link to this. It was insightful and amusing at the same time. Garry Lyon nearly"... fell off his bike..."  when he heard the new yesterday, so happy was he!

I can see it now

"Careless swipe at squash ball by Hogan dismembers McDonald's golden goal kicking foot - retires from football"

"Diabolical Demons Doubles Disaster: Misdirected Melksham Military Missile Serve Smashes into Brayshaw's head.  Gus out for 10 seasons"

"Cataclysmic Cluedo Clusterfk: Gawn dunnit in the loungeroom. Gawn's penchant from hilarity ends in acting out fictional crime. Accidental Cluedo shenanigans end in Oliver's magical meta carpals being snapped in half. Out for season"

Shut this down now and wrap them all in cotton wool
