  1. La Dee-vina, I just did my update this morning. You need to log into the MCC portal and pay through that. Click on renew my membership and as you've already paid for your MCC (I imagine) it will allow you to get either a MCC premium or just exclusive membership. That should work. Good luck & Go Dees
  2. Trade period has provided alot but this is by far the worst post on Demonland.
  3. He won't be over the life of the contract but as we're getting him in contract - we need to pay him the last year of his GC contract which was over-inflated just to keep him to stay. Melbourne aren't offering him big $, he'll be on less than Lever - he is coming to win a flag.
  4. I had dinner with a friend last night who's brother is in the list management team at Freo. He was adamant that Freo and Jesse had commercially already agreed to terms and all that was left was Melbourne and Freo to do the deal.
  5. Agree but should we win for mine he's straight back in. Joel Smith is in purely to cover the fact WC play 2 huge forwards and will have either Vardy or Lycett deep resting. We can't afford to lose Hibberds attacking ability in playing man coverage on them so we had to play Smith. If we win, neither Tiges or Pies have the same lineup and I'd say there's no spot for Joel so I hope he keeps his head up - he's in my GF team should we be good enough to make it....
  6. Whilst I’d traditionally agree with this Poita, I’m a MCC/MFC dual member and the ‘membership’ is nothing more than a donation. Get no access to any games or anything other than a scarf. Given we’ve never played finals, I’d never encountered or thought about the fact it wouldn’t give us access to grand final ballot but given I’m only a restricted member I’m now stuck because I can’t get into MCC nor can I get a ticket through MFC. I’m a 10 year member who has sat through Gold Coast spanking us at the G, Geelong spanking us in the 150th year game and all the spankings between them. Worlds smallest violin and all that jazz but it’s hit me in the last few days that if we win, I’m next to no chance to go. At 28, it’s a somber thought that the I was 10 at the 2000 and couldn’t take it in and I’m sure all the rich & elite that have jumped on the bandwagon will get tickets before me through corporates or mates in the coming days after we get it done over the Eagles but probably a good life reminder that sometimes life sucks. Im rambling now but just remember not everyone who is asking for a favour isn’t a member or hasn’t been on the same emotional journey as you for as long as they can remember! go Dees

    Jayden Hunt

    Unfortunately with a winning team, they always seem to lose one a year. Generally, it's always lower teams paying a reasonable amount for them too.. I can't count the amount of Tom Gillies, Shannon Byrnes, Viv Michie's we've picked up over the journey expecting quality and getting realistically what we always thought. I think it's naive to think we won't lose someone this year and for mine, Hunt could well be that player. If a lower 6-7 team came with a second rounder for him (picks 24-28), I'd do it in a heartbeat. It's not to say I don't like Jayden but players do become currency and his traits are excellent but his all-round package is a player who runs so fast he really can't do anything other than blast the ball high and long. Let's watch this space!
  8. Drove past the line at 4:45 and they know set up cow herding barricades so people can't cut in like they used too but had it been a straight line like the old days it would've been at the Pullman. The line gets considerable from about 3:30 onwards so given you are lucky and can knock off early I'd suggest getting there around that time (3:00-3:15ish) and you'll be maybe 500-1000 back and a certainty for a pick of Level 1, 2 or 3 seat depending on your preference. The moment you get your seat at 5 and get your card you can bugger off to the pub or for dinner or head home for a while depending on location and arrive 2 and a half hours later ready to rumble
  9. Not even, I was at the game and the supporters were thrilled. It’s just that Demonland is the sookiest place on earth.
  10. Unfortunately I think it's a timing thing with this board. When you've had 2 wins in a row, even bad news gets looked at positively and now after a very disappointing loss - even the good gets treated with disdain. ANB in the salary cap, free-agency era is a player you definitely need. He's a middle round draft pick who tries his arse off every week. He has flaws and does make errors but too many times yesterday he was given a handball with a player already tackling him, or he was free in space before the kick didn't hit the target then putting him under pressure after he'd run to free himself of that pressure. In this day and age you simply cannot have nor afford 22 Petraccas, Olivers & Hogans you need serviceable foot soldiers that won't break the bank but will work hard. Watching this board and reaction to this article stuns me. He had 22 touches and 6 tackles (equal second behind Clarry). He far outperformed Petracca, Lewis, Melksham, Vince & Harmes who are either more highly touted, highly rated or more highly paid. Keep doing you ANB!
  11. They were always stuffed because we couldn't get clean use or move the ball forward - no defence will look good in that scenario. However, Tackles - Omac and Lever both had 0. Jetta and Frost had 1. I don't believe there's any excuse for lack of effort and given Hawthorn had 40 more tackles then us and won the possession battle it doesn't read well. Another frustration watching yesterday was the amount of times we spoiled or attempted too and either didn't clear the danger zone or it went out the back. If you can't avoid the danger, do something different. So frustrating and I think they scored 5 of the first 7 goals from our defensive errors.
  12. Excse my ignorance but I missed this. What happened?
  13. Was disappointed when I first heard but all for it. I along with many last year whinged and complained at Hibberd for a second rounder saying too much and it was an absolute steal. Even Melksham looks good value in hindsight. Draft picks are so overvalued throughout the industry because we see year in year out good juniors not develop and overlooked juniors ala Sloane, Fyfe etc turn picks 30-40 into AA's. adelaide have done the hard work risked the pick and developed him and it's cost us downgrading a first to a second and upgrading a 4th to a 3rd. The more I think about it, I'm just thrilled to have him on board
  14. I think the clubs actually do a good job of only speaking to the players when acceptable. I'd hope Melbourne aren't attempting to speak to Lever at present whilst he has far bigger things to worry about. I think the thing that get's forgotten is the majority of the information we're pushed is fake. The media create a story to comment on it, drum up two days worth of radio, reporting and back-slapping from their other media cronies to move on in 2 days to the next fake story and have no accountability for the dribble. Blokes like Sam Maclure frustrate the bejesus out of me because 95% of their 'reports' prove to be incorrect yet nothing is said of it. IMO too many uneducated, irresponsible media personalities now that it's become more Daily Mail than news.
