WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JACK VINEY

Recommended Posts

Jack is also a left footer, we have no one in our midfield that is a left footer. Can someone tell me of the other top 5 young midfielders that will be drafted at years end that are left footers.

Viney would just be the right player that Neeld would love to coach I reckon and Neeld would know exactly what he is getting. I cant wait to round 1 next year.

I agree with this. Also you could see Neeld was seething about the hits on him and i'm guessing the players would have been also. He is one of the boys, part of the team already and this is a huge factor i reckon, in terms of team dynamics and culture. When he plays his first game for the dees there will be none of the "getting to know" the: team, systems, vibe etc or need to earn respect (he's done that already) that most other new recruits have to deal with. He'll be ready to go and it will be like he has always been around.

I think with Viney we can see he will be a good player. Perhaps he doesn't have the tricks or potential of some others in the next draft, i wouldn't know. But surely a premium must be put on the fact that we can pretty bloody confident he will make it, is a dee already and has the sort of toughness and dare i say it intensity we so desperately need.

To an extent it goes to the argument about picking the best player or the one who best meets your needs. In this case he meets our needs and i for one would love to see a player at the dees who goes 100% at contests and causes the sort of angst amongst opposition players (in his first game against men) that sees a veteran AFL player in his final year risk getting reported and sitting out games.

Horse's for courses and we need this horse.

If we finish higher on the ladder we get a bargin for Viney but our compo pick won't be as good. If we finish bottom 3 we may pay overs for Viney but our compo pick becomes a lot better... Take your pick?

Keep developing the side and win as many games as possible, the draft is irrelevant we are taking Viney and forget the rest for now

This is not my idea. i saw it on this article in the first comment.

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/afl/more-news/draft-joust-to-secure-jack-viney/story-e6frf9jf-1226349309807

but yeah, considering apparently the compo picks can't be used for the father-son rule, what if we traded our pick 3 for a player of high quality (such as the much discussed dangerfield) and then we get to use the 2 compo picks and get viney at a steal in the 2nd round. Not my idea but i saw it and wanted to share it with you guys?

Hadn't thought about that one. That would work brilliantly....yes?

Are people here thick? Its been said 824927 times that trading is done after the f/s bid. How on earth will we trade for dangerfield with a pick thats already used on viney?

Father son bidding Is done before trade week. If somebody bids for Jack we can then decide to either match the bid with our first round pick or pass him onto the team that bids. Once we've decided to take him with our first round pick Its set In stone, therefore we wouldn't be able to use that pick to trade. I hope that makes sense?

If we can take Cale Morton at pick four, than we can take viney at pick 3.....

Viney does look great

Though i will be disappointed if we pay overs.

Yes i know his been in the system 2 yrs blah blah blah, but overs is OVERS!!

if his worth the pick then take him, if he isn't worth it then we shouldn't take him. This is a superdraft.

Also i don't know why people think that its ok coz we have the compo pick, well we lost a #1 draft pick for this compo! so its not a freebie.

I think people are annoyed because we all hate GWS for what they did to us with Scully and we're over being screwed by them, but at the end of the day we are going to get a top quality kid who is going to be that far ahead of anyone else drafted this year it's not funny. He'll be as ready made as Trengove is now.

The best "screw you" we can send Sheedy is Viney smashing Scully into next week when we play each other next year.

Maybe we've dodged a bullet with Scully, the $6 million man for whom you currently wouldn't give $600,000. The compo picks may be far more useful.

Please tell me how on earth you can decide whether a so-far undetermined pick is 'overs' for Viney.

I didn't say he was overs. I said i hope the club doesn't pay overs if it comes to the crunch.

Don't recall claiming that was a fact champ, simply using it as an example as the type of deal that could be made with either GWS or GC to ensure they don;t nominate Viney.

Thanks for clearing that up then.

Champ.

Argh!!! You are so frustrating!!! Stop contradicting yourself- Viney is worth our first round pick. Whether we have pick 10, 5 or 1- Viney is worth it. We CANNOT pay "OVERS" for Viney as he is invaluable to us! How can you not understand that no matter what number the pick we use on Viney ends up being, we will not be paying overs?

He is solid, and he is already a demon. Get this "overs" notion out of your head. And nobody thinks anything is "ok coz we have the compo pick," we all realise this is a seperate issue.

pick 1 IS potential overs, for sure

*unless viney is rated the bets player in which case it isnt

right now Whitfield is rated that though

and to clarify i think pick 3 is his value, people are only upset because we wont gain the small possibility of getting him at 20 which is massive, wait for it......unders

Read rpfc's post about why we won't have to pay Pick 1 under any circumstance, even if we had it.

Pick me! Pick me!

Ok, we need at least 3 elite mids with clearance skills, elite decision making, pace and pinpoint disposal. On top of that we also need at least 2 small forwards with pace and defensive awareness who can also snag a goal.

From there we could do with a 6ft5 CHB gorilla. Sellar need not apply.

Viney is a good start though.

I've never said, or tried to imply that he was the only type of player needed. I try to avoid stating the bleeding obvious. But games of footy are won in the midfield and it's the area that most needs fixing.

well aware of the bidding process, was replying to someone who said 1 wouldnt be overs as Viney is that good ect, i am just saying he isnt the outright best player so isnt the 1 even if we could use it on him.

Don't know much about Whitfield.......Is he better than Viney????? Scully??????

At least we know what Viney is a very good hard nosed player that will get is own ball and is not afraid to mix it with anyone and has skills we need at the moment.

Thats ok. I wasn't trying to imply that you did but after re-reading I can see how you thought that. I for one am rapt to be getting Viney. As I said, he is a good start to our re-rebuild.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
