GWS Targeting Jamar

GWS are able to sign Jamar as a free agent at the end of season.

We need to lock away The Russian ASAP because it is obviously important from a football perspective but it would also be good to create some positive publicity around the club.

IMO GWS are more likely to go after Ryder who is apparently out of contract, a lot younger and has a good relationship with Sheeds.

He said he wants to stay at MFC. Offer him what's he's worth to us and if he doesn't take it, see you later! We've seriously had so much bad news in relation to the MFC in the last few weeks I just don't give a flying over anyone that would want leverage off us.

Incidentally in relation to the article with so many payers being free agent at the end of this year why has the article chosen to highlight Jamar? Is there a concerted effort going on somewhere to hover a black cloud over the MFC?

Didn't he just sign rescently?

I thought so also, there was an article doing the rounds before the start of the season saying he wants to be a demon for life, guess he hasn't signed as yet though??

Free agency will be a good addition, and at least with our version of it clubs are compensated. Jamar's getting on, and if he goes and we receive a compensatory pick it's not the apocalypse.

I would however like to see the AFL introduce something similar to the NFL's franchise player tag, where every club can nominate one player each off-season who they haven't yet agreed to terms with, who has to stay with the team, or if they leave, the club that takes them must give them two first round picks.

Russian will stay. He said so at the start of the year and I'll take him

At his word. As for why they lead with Jamar - Melbourne is the story of the week and you have to make hay while the sun shine.

Wouldnt be a huge loss we need to get rid of one of him or Martin anyway I think. We still have Martin Clark & Gawn if he goes. I like Russian but he's had one awesome year and about 8 average ones.

I'm sure we will be able to do a sensible deal with him, besides he's got this weekend to get over yet. Not the end of the world. Gawn, Martin and Spencer in the wings.

Not concerned, time and time again he's said that he wants to repay the faith Melbourne showed in him. I think he wants to be a one club player

Jamar's a bit of a battler that's had one good year of footy. I'll be far from concerned if he leaves. Players like Giles from GWS and Redden at Port have shown that it's not hard to recruit/develop competent ruckman. Redden looked fantastic in his first game, which he may not have played if Lobbe wasn't injured. Jacobs left Carlton for more opportunity and he's very competent.

Mike Sheehan wrote a couple of years ago that it would just about be the end of the road if Melbourne couldn't convince Davey to stay. Yeah, right..

Benny-boy, for me it is all about getting a good midfielder. Just one. We have the structure but no heart. We need a heart. We have the supporting cast; we need a star. If Jamar goes and we can get another decent pick and another potential mid, well, that is fine. We have martin & clark; spencer and fitzpatrick are developing...oh and gawn, who I think shows a bit to go on with. I'd trade almost anyone for one very good mid.

Exactly my thinking.

We don't want to be rebuilding forever, but I think we have at least the raw tools in all positions bar the midfield now.

Jamar has been good the last few years, but our younger rucks have shown the capability to step into the fold, while Russian just gets older.

We may see an exodus of Jamar and Moloney, but I'd only see that as possibly a good thing.

Load up in this draft of all drafts, then develop, develop, develop.

It's going to take longer than we want, and we were promised back in 07, but there's nothing we can do about that now.

Either way we get compensation.

But I would like to see the Russian be a One Club Player with Us...

He's done the tough Yards & I think knows much about the struggles to be an AFL player. This type of person to me should be the type we want to keep.

Stay on Mark.

What is it with clubs wanting our players. Richmond has 2 rejects, Hawthorn have two playing at Box hill, Carlton has 1 playing VFL, Collingwood have 1 at VFL, GWS now has 2 going for 3, Gold Coast has 1 and we offloaded another to Brisbane that is now finished, don't these clubs know we have sucked for the past 5 years.

And this article backs it up:

I think losing Jamar would be in our best interests, as distasteful as it is.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
