Twitter confirmed that Neeld advised that he would be delisted at the first list lodgement.

Sad news, possible that we pick him up again as a rookie?

Was Aussie training today?

Does anyone know of Aussie's intentions? If he is keen to remain an AFL player I wonder if we would consider him for a rookie spot if he looks good on the track.

Sad, but not suprised. Wonna has bigger Demons to sort out than the MFC. Good luck little guy. It's time you had some.

It's is sad yes but unfortunatley the hard decision had to be made and probably due to matters out of Aussies control there really was only one decision to be made. Good luck Aussie hope life looks after you from here on in.

Very valid question Armstrong, and one I have raised in the past. I have no doubt Jurrah goes to a different level when Aussie is playing along side of him.

While LJ has played a number of games without Aussie, and played well in some of those games, if Aussie were to return "home", I hope the support network around the club will ensure LJ remains focused.

Agree with what you say.

I will miss the excitement these two bring playing together

If it was a go home factor I can understand but if it wasn't I believe he should of had a year to prove himself.

even though I expected this i am upset he is gone

Dees delist Austin Wonaeamirri

It's definitely sad. It's how list management goes. But in saying that, I can't say I'm happy with the fact that Spencer, Dunn, Bate and Newton will all be on our list (whether it be senior or rookie), but we have no place for Wonaeamirri. If I had to pick one of those five to be on our list, it would be Austin.

Was always on the cards as we need more spots. Unless he wants to go home, I am pretty sure he will be rookied by us, if not taken by someone else first.

How many games have LJ and Wonna played in the same side if it is much more than 5 I would be suprised.Do agree it could impact him around the club though but that is not a reason to keep someone about.

Its a shame when injury and application (regardless of reason) and not lack of talent sees a player delisted. This further highlights our need to draft a quality crumber. Without knowing the reason would hope he gets another chance if that is what he is looking for.

Unfortunately, for whatever multitudinous reasons, Wona was not able to fully commit to the extreme rigors of AFL footy.......simlpe as that really.

I am glad that someone has finally come out and stated that anything less than full commitment just won't go.........are you listening Mr Sylvia?

But as titan says.....I would certainly want him on the list ahead of at least some of those he has listed.

BRFE, I commented on the fact that LJ has played many games without Aussie. But in the limited games they have played together, LJ seems to do things that even for him are freakish. Just watch the Sydeny and Hawthorn games from 2010. I think even Bruce commented in his call that they are like a pair of naughty school kids, that they just do what they want to do.

I'd love to see Wonna stay and play but how can the club give him a contract if they don't know whether he'll still want to be there in a couple of months time. Rookie him see what he wants to do and if he sticks around elevate him.

Agreed. You can't wait forever for a player to prove he wants it, tough circumstances or not.

It's sad that Wonna is going. But we've got to stop this, being scared that if one player leaves, an avalanche will occur. The tail doesn't wag the dog, or if it did we would be the saints.

IF player X has to leave because player 'Y', has been delisted, then we don't need that sort of commitment at the Dees.

Hope he trains in an effort to get a rookie spot.

But it was the prudent decision.

Oh, well.

How on earth can Newton be retained ?

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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
