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.

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
