That's a pretty strong message to Craig and Neeld and Co Neeld has made it very clear that no players will get special favours. In principle that is fine .... but no two people are the same - and coa

With regard to Liam moving to Collingwood I think we are all overlooking one point here. Despite being shy and quiet when he meets new people, Liam is very close to Aaron and the other boys and genuin

You're talking about McGuire... Don't remember what he was like when he was a "reporter?"

All these mugs are acolytes of his...

Yep , ed chasing down plugger on crutches

Anything for a story,

As discussed on a million forums , ed cant be a journo and president of a football club at the same time particulary when the story invoves Afl

He may claim no conflict of intrest but 17 teams and there supporters perceive there is. And often perception is worse than reality

I am also unhappy if its true that liams support group " invited" eddie around.

Eddie knows the protocols about getting permission from a club to interview a player.

This doesn't seem to be playing out well at all. Needs clean air, someONE to take charge and agenda pedallars like McGuire swept from the scene. It has seemed up until now that the club has had a good handle on the issues facing Liam but I think it's now time to get him in and draw a line!

According to Mark Robinson on AFL360 tonight, MFC had no knowledge of the Jurrah interview with McGuire until there were sms's getting around that Jurrah would be on the show, and the MFC are apparently not too happy about it.

How does that even happen?

I heard that too. If true, Eddie McGuire is an unethical, headline seeking, scumbag.

Hey Batherus and BHMc, one way to protect a vulnerable person and keep the trash media away from him is to protect the person by keeping the trash media away from him! An hack ex Magpie and the other a Magpie fan... media amateurs. Eddie played them like a guitar.

Given that Rudeboy himself visits these boards Id be interested to know what on earth they were either thinking...or playing at ?

Why would you p!ss off the very people youre hoping and expecting to stand by Liam ?

Who's agenda is being played out here .....I wonder

Whilst I'm not sure any of us are in the position to criticise, not knowing the full facts, I am quite confused by what they thought they were trying to achieve with that interview.

I'm sure it would go against both the club's advice and wishes, and that of his legal team.

Perplexing really, and yeah, it does unfortunately lead to questions of self-serving agendas...

I think we should all relax. By Liam putting in (a very limited) media performance with Eddie, he's cleared the air as best he can, given he cannot discuss the case (for Legal reasons). Liam now has until mid May to quietly go about his rehabilitation and work on getting back into the MFC 22 asap.

If you want to lay the blame with anyone it's with Eddie. He is the one who who knows the protocols. He is the one who did what he did for purely selfish (media) reasons.

The other 2 blokes I continue to believe have nothing but Liam's interests at heart and because he is a Melbourne player the footy clubs interests are parallel. I think you should pull-up a little. As I indicated, the club needs to quickly sort it out.

Sorry, why hasn't the club told Jurrah in no uncertain terms who he can talk to and where. This is a sensitive legal issue. Either the club hasn't done it or Jurrah has gone against their demands.

If the club hasn't done it, they deserve a bollocking. it is unbelievable LJ could come back to Melbourne without that legal advice.

As for Eddie it is a disgraceful breech of protocol.

I highly, highly doubt the club didn't know about the interview.

After all that has happened, I am sure Liam has people surrounding him everyday, helping him through all of this.

They know he doesn't understand Melbourne AFL Media yet, so would be supporting his every decision.

I am pretty sure the interview would have been scripted and filmed with plenty of editing.

This seems to be a pretty good stitch up of the MFC by the four involved. Jurrah, McGuire, Rupert Betheras and Bruce Hearn McKinnon all know the protocols. For Liam to do any media interview at the current time without informing the club is extremely poor.. For Jurrah to be talking to the president of a rival club before he has met with anyone from the club that is paying his wage is a disgrace.

I don’t believe that BHM would use Jurrah just to help McGuire’s rating on his new show. The fact that Betheras made the point of almost blaming personal changes at Melbourne for Jurrahs actions combined with BHM organizing a private meeting with the Collingwood President, and McGuire running a segment on his show about how fantastic he and Collingwood are at working with the remote indigenous communities, makes me believe that if Jurrah is playing AFL next year it will be in a Collingwood jumper.

McGuire was mouthing off a couple of weeks ago that he will be out to get the MFC for poaching his people, I guess this is the start.

I think we can all be thankful that he actually said nothing. I cannot believe that Betheras and BHM would actually sanction an interview of any kind without seeking MFC permission first. Neither are lawyers. They surely must know the implications of even one word would have on his case as pointed out by "needafullback". This is not minding this is just giving in to his Almighty. And please dont tell me that his show is about "cutting edge news and cutting edge stories". Who is he trying to kid.This is bullying at its worst. He would know that Liam is in no position to make these decisions to do an interviews. To say that the Club knew that he was covering the story, well so was every other media organisation. Did he forget to tell them that he was also intending to interview Liam with the connivance of his two minders. I sense a little bit of payback here. EM is filthy on us at the moment. Just a little bit of "oneupmanship". A little dig here and there about the Club letting Liam down. Dont let it ever be said that Melbourne got one over Collingwood. I bet we dont see anything from the AFL or at least openly chastise Eddie. No one tells Eddie what to do.

The Club needs to keep a handle on everything that Liam does from now on. No more media about the subject. Release statements but that is it. It is not going to go away but at least let it die down.

Eddie is copping a pasting from Patrick Smith and K.B. on SEN. He is caught lying and dodging questions. You know when he gets angry that he has been caught. He reckons the CEO Schwabb allowed him the interview. This will be rebutted by CS no doubt!

He will not answer the Question about whether he has a conflict ogf intetrest and would have gone bonkers had anyone interviewed a collingwood player.

Yes yes, we all love a good conspiracy. And as for the line I have bolded, that is an absolutely disgraceful thing to say! Bruce Hearn McKinnon has been supportive of LJ as a friend and as someone wanting him to bring his game to the AFL. Sure he first was attempting to get him into the Pies, but he has stated many times over how pleased he has been with the way in which the MFC has taken LJ under their wing. To say that he is using Jurrah goes way beyond the pale.

If anybody interviewed Alan Didak without Collingwood's permission during his gun slinging days Eddie would have gone absoutely ape $#$t. He seriously needs to pull his head in, I won't be watching his show again - it was awful anyway - I turned it off during the scumbag $cully "interview" - what a liar he is.

Our President Mclardy a couple of weeks ago said that he wanted to have the MFC a top 5 club in Victoria.

Well this story is the start.

We must stand our ground here. I heard Mcguire & Smith going hard. Eddie was backtracking often.

Stand tall Don.

What I don't understand is why the people who have Liam's best interests at heart, would let him do the interview without the club's permission. It doesn't make sense, and I am sure there is some reasonable explanation.

As for Eddie, he is a disgraceful low-life scumbag. Should be ashamed and disgusted at his behaviour, but clearly his enormous ego and tiny brain would prevent him from ever feeling remorse.

He seems to really enjoy sabotaging our club. I hope Melbourne puts a blanket ban on anyone at the club ever doing an interview with this [censored]. Be it on his devoid-of-any-content Foxtel show, or his MMM show.

What a joke.

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs
