Thanks-- RR , struggling badly to get a worthwhile playing list fit. I will beat your mate HT in the tipping though.

Take care - already looking forward to next year.

Been a long summer,Lets get this party started!

Twitter is rampant. Jude Bolton it seems is not impressed with some draft tactics. (UFL)

He has referred back to J.Northery / Richmond drafting David Williams,after Melbourne delisted Williams after he also suffered a LTI. (1988?)

Williams and MFC had hoped to re-list Williams after making an agreement with that player,until Richmond broke an unwriiten law in that clubs dont white ant in these cases. I suggested he suck it up, as there isnt anything that can be done about it.

Team DeeVoted wishes him well at his new club. (at 32 he is now talking about walking away from the game)

So ... 16th it is after yet another loss, this time to Scarlett. Pretty ordinary but the Rovers plan to bounce back bigger and better in 2013.I hope all coaches can put any minor spats aside from the year and get involved again next season. Some seriously good footy minds right across the group.

Ps. Ryan Griffen you just gave me 47 reasons to put your name down as my second open keeper for '013. Awesome display!

Pps. Thanks to Jackattack for your patience in running the show. You took the hits on the chin and deserve kudos for your handling of some tricky disputes.

Cheers all,

RR

Ah shi* I only just saw this! Apologies, I picked him up as soon as I saw him delisted due to my forward line being weak, and kinda being extremely optimistic and hoping he makes a return next week!

On another note, I snuck another win this week! Bring on next week and hopefully the return of Franklin!

It was all tongue in cheek. :)

I wont need him, (not injured) but when I seen you have drafted him, It reminded of what happened to Williams and a good excuse to reflect back and post it for some banter. I was just kiddin'

Good luck to all the remaining teams. for me UFL is drawing closer to the end.

Hardly true, with hit outs being a category I can never win, frees being so fickle, you could have 4 points ahead of me without even knowing it, it's always a bit of luck, having said that I am quite happy with my team on the track and adding a playing Franklin to it will help but there is no need of a miracle, you definitely have a good line up and barring injury it will definitely be a close matchup!

I figured as much! I had never heard of Williams, probably too young to pay much attention to it, but i often wondered what would happen if say this year we delisted Bartram to put him on our rookie list and someone picked him up instead!

Also don't leave UFL, keep in it, it's good for a laugh, and really posting in this thread is pretty much the only thing I look for now days with most people on the other threads very negative, unimaginative and really much like most of our performances this year haha!

Some will probably remember (older supporters) of what happened.

It went something like this, David Williams was a young Brad Green type, leadup forward, that was capable of kicking a bag of goals,solid mark, and a reliable kick. He was showing a lot of promise , Williams started under Northey.

Williams had his seasom cut short with a serious knee, MFC decided to delist him, so they could use another player to fill in.

Both parties agreed, and MFC would relist him at seasons end. (1989 - 1990?)

Northey had left MFC, and was now coach of the Tiges. Northey knew how valuable he could be. so the Tiges drafted him. *Up til then teams had a sort of handshake agreement, in these cases, not to poach.

When Williams found he was dratfed by the Tiges, and the plan with the Dees backfired, he said he only wanted to play for Melb.

MFC wasnt too happy with Richmond either.

He never played AFL again, and went back to playing country footy. end of history lesson :unsure:

I am not sure if any Team would abide by the old handsake agreement these days, Richmond / Williams might have killed that.

But any player in the draft is open season for anyone to draft. ie Bolton to MM lol

someone else may know, but I think this lead to being able to have a player put on the LTI list,and bring in a rookie.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
