He is just a player, 2nd or 3rd key forward at best 

You must have very high standards

Will he McStay or will he McLeave?   Hey, somebody had to say it.

To paraphrase Joe Strummer “should I McStay or should I go”… I only hope he remembers to pack his McCluggage.

A back pocket could walk into our forward line this year 

Well....that worked out more than ok in the 64 grand final :-)  But times have moved on I confess.

I just don’t think he is any better than what we currently have. If I had to compare  Ben Brown at his best Vs McStay at his best, I’d take BB every day of the week and twice on Sunday

Would be great if we can grab him… will require a departure though.

3 way deal involving jacko/freo?

McStay is a very handy footballer but he's not the 2nd coming of Tony Lockett....we already have a kid at Casey who will at minimum be the equal of him in the next couple of seasons.

I do like him, works great in that kind of forward line, undecided on whether he'd be a good fit for us. Seems like a Mihocek type which you'd hardly sneeze at but can they be the focal point? It would come down to what happens with our other forwards come season's end I guess. 

Upgrade from Mitch Brown no doubt though!

Don't want to freak anyone out, but McStay has about the same numbers as Sam Weideman except with a couple of extra link kicks up the ground.

He'd be an improvement, for sure, but only an incremental one and I don't think recruiting him would make a major difference for us.

That said, if Weideman decides to move on for a fresh start in a trade, and we then get McStay as a free agent, we would effectively be getting a little upgrade while also picking up Weideman's trade value. Ha! Use that to push ourselves up the draft order and we can pick up one of the very promising key forwards in the draft, and wha-bam we've got ourselves a short-term role filled and a long-term prospect in one go.

We have to get him. I have doubts whether TMac will ever come back and we can’t be held hostage to those circumstances. 

my opinion on him has definitely changed. We need to add him in. with doubts over MBrown's status this off-season, Weid's lack of progress and potential to request a move if he gets an offer of regular senior football elsewhere, Jacko's lure home and TMac's consistency and form issues in McStay you're getting a forward target who is at least on par with the rest of our options talent wise but in a much healthier age bracket and on between 500-600k a year its about 50-100k more than we're paying tomlinson and he's played more casey footy than dees footy since he came. 

Not many alternatives across the competition who are gettable. off the top of my head -one of the giants riccardi/HH/hogan, burgess at the suns who's leading the vfl goalkicking or ratugolea or reid/amartey/mclean at the swans or schache

Schache ?That would be the ultimate  victory of optimism over experience .The rest are ordinary with the exception of Jesse who is head and shoulders above the others .But alas I can only dream of his return.

Schache is less competitive than just about any KPF in the game. Gets out positioned by an empty chip packet blowing across the ground 

I like the look of Riccardi from GWS. Think he is ready to step up

Just read on AFL website that McStay has been courted by some clubs and may go Top 30.

He will be a very good CHB type.

Think  Hardeman.

Harry Himmelberg would take in a heartbeat...He is far from ordinary..... super talented player, forward and back.

I love these comments! Every time he is written off he comes back better than ever.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
