Aaron vandenBerg not going - signs a new deal!!!

Recommended Posts

You'd have thought we failed to make the 8 or something with all the players wanting out. Or is it a case of Demon players being highly sort after commodities?

Yes we will "sort" them out.

Would have thought he would not be looking eleswhere after the way we have nursed him back to playing, and rushed him into the firsts.

 

Playing finals should be an attraction, not a repellant.

Could it be that Vanders got a nudge at his end-of-season meeting? Is Melbourne clearing the decks for some serious trade action? I like Vanders, but I'm not sure how much I like him, since he is so often injured, and often goes missing in games. Without any related information I'd keep him for at least another year.

Wtf..... 

Are we the opposite of a destination club? 

We must be the first team to make a prelim yet going to have 10+ senior list changes

Article says he has a good relationship with the Coach and clearly would be happy with his last part of the season.

Article also says he has to help run the family business and it is too hard from Melbourne.

Also hasn't asked for a trade yet.

And if the 10 we get in are nearly all better than the ones who left, your concern is?

Didn’t expect that. 

 

Why??

The article says that his father passed away recently and he’s been running the business from a distance. Moving to NSW might help.

It's quite simple, we want to keep him but offer 1 year with maybe an option on another, Sydney, like the Saints for Kent, offer a straight 3 year deal, which one would anybody take?

A move back to NSW as well

It makes sense that he may want to move.

He has great attributes, but disposal can let him down.

He's a bottom 6 player, so it's no big deal if he goes.

A big overhaul like that could cause a lack of team chemistry. 

You gotta admit it's not ideal losing 25% of your list. 

Unless you're carlton

Are people so heartless as to not see why he might want to move?  

There are real lives to these footballers as well....

I agree but it's probably more to do with stability in our best 22.

So far apart from Hogan being mentioned we don't look like losing those players.

Love Vanders but he's fringe best 22, Kent hasn't played a lot and the others were past their use by.

I'm not sure that cleaning out the bottom half of the list will have a lot of effect on team chemistry.

Adding more than 2 or 3 to the top half of the list could cause problems.

Poor bloke has had a tough year with the death of his father and taking over the responsibility of running the family business from a distance.

It would be a tremendous loss to lose him but sometimes when you are being pulled in two direction you have to make these difficult decisions.

I sincerely hope he stays but would understand if he want to be closer to home.

Agree and if he wants to move back closer to family to assist in running the business then we should assist as long as we get what we want. I have no issues with those that are looking elsewhere. Except for Hogan the others are bottom 6 players or VFL at best. Certainly looks like we are clearing the decks for some serious trade action. Can't wait.

Don't forget posters the nucleas of our side from Prelim game are still there!.
