Dylan Shiel



Recommended Posts

I don't think anyone wants to get rid of him because they (we) think he's rubbish. It's more about the fact he has currency and is surplus to our needs up forward. If he can develop into a genuine midfield role I'd prefer to keep him, but I don't see it - he's more of a forward flanker type, something we have an over-abundance of.

All I hear on here is CURRENCY....."Quick trade them while they still have CURRENCY".....People on here want to trade one of the best full back in the AFL because he has CURRENCY??...and are scared that he MIGHT leave after next year....FMD...

They want to trade our leading goal kicker because he now has CURRENCY.....Last year two of our best forwards missed half the year through injury but now Howe is surplus?????

Gezzz....This trade week(s) is just so over rated it's not funny and so is the draft....

when did people fall out of love with Jeremy Howe?

He was our bloody leading goal kicker this season in an area that the ball rarely came down into and when it did it was kicked atrociously?!

Will be much better with some key forwards on the park to take much of the focus off of him.

Get a clue people.

No ones fallen out of love, but at that stage nothing was taking place.

today things are moving, & our in comings are reshaping our midfield look.

Howe needs a swift kick up to get him into a fresh perspective.

Agree

I support the club not the player - don't get me wrong love Frawley and he's a gun.

THis club will remain a [censored] kicker until it gets ruthless in all aspects of it's operations

absolutely, there has been a culture at Melbournefc for IMO about 15+ years, where the tail has been swinging the dog about. this has to stop. players will learn.

I was talking about Howe, I wouldn't trade Frawley unless he said he was out the door and even then I'd do my utmost to keep him.

Yeah Howe may have been our leading goal kicker but our team was [censored] and we have Clark, Hogan, Dawes and Watts to play there. Howe is one dimensional, can't do much through the middle and is an average set shot. I don't want to throw him away for nothing but I wouldn't lose sleep if we gained something decent for him.

It's pretty funny, I got the same response two years ago when I said we should trade out Jamar while other teams would still be willing to give us something good for him, now we try to give him away and no one will take his contract off our hands. People weren't happy when we traded Johnstone or when McLean wanted out either (before he decided to go I thought we could only have 2 of McLean, Moloney & Jones on our list and thought he was the weakest of the 3 anyway.) it's called good list management and knowing what you have, what you need and how long your assets have before they start to depreciate away.

Agree, Doc. Naturally, I'm more than happy to trust Roos and his team. If they think Howe is too good to give up, then so be it. But they'd be stupid not to look at a deal like Howe for Shiel. It won't happen, but we have to be ruthless and open to these types of trades.

It wouldn't be a straight swap, if we were to involve Howe in any deals regarding Shiel, it would be Howe and pick 9 to GWS for Shiel.

It's a reasonable trade, not saying we should be looking to get rid of Howe, but to get a guy the quality of Shiel - we'd have to give up a player of some quality, no doubt.

Howe and Pick 9 to GWS for who? So we trade a top 10 pick and a Howe (a dead set golden goose) for some GWS punk? lol dont ya love trade period.

I'd love trade period a lot more if we did that trade. If Dylan Shiel was in this draft he'd go pick 2 if not pick 3 or 4. You'd be getting a certain 200 gamer who can burst from clearances, kick goals, pretty much do all that you'd want from a midfielder and he'd do it right now. If it took Howe to move back up those spots then that's what it would take. Howe has a great highlight reel and some pretty unique aerial talents but more games than not he doesn't contribute to winning.

A lot of crazy trades get put up in trade week. But trading pick 9 and a guy in Howe who hasn't cemented himself as an AFL player for a guy who could be described as the best young midfielder GWS have (considering they've had the top 3 and more picks in the last 2 drafts and preselection) is not crazy. Shiel is no punk.

Yeah, it would be a massive win for us.

It's a hypothetical of course, but it would be a dream to land Shiel, no doubt.

GWS seemed reluctant to give up Tyson last year and Shiel this year, for good reason.

I think if we could use pick 9 to get Shiel this year, we should try and do that, but it appears unlikely GWS will let him go.

Purely from a marketing perspective, I'm sure Demetriou would love Howe in GWS colours taking mark of the year. Offering Howe plus pick 9 for Shiel would be an option they would look at plus they have surplus midfielders on their list.....wishful thinking I know but the Dees are on a roll at the moment!

I dont think Blease has much currency and Shiel is worth more than pick 9 imo

I'd rate Shiel around P5ish I would have thought. not up there with the Jeager O'meara's or Jack Martins.

I think Howe on footy ability + his drawcard ability in a new frontier, would clamber up to Shiels value.

Win-win then, isn't it Yeata? ;)

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
