The Senior List Jigsaw Puzzle

So... within how many hours will these 3 be delisted?

There were rumours about the playing group being told "8 of you won't be here next year" after one of our worst losses. Who knows if true.

Gore could be around.

Toby McLean is one I rate extremely highly who may be there at around 40. Jack Lonie could be there, would be happy to get Nath Drummond here too.

Talls Dan Howe, Dan Nielson and Brenton Payne could be useful gets in this range too. Oscar McDonald could be around the mark as well.

Touk Miller is one id seriously look at.

I'd have him going a bit higher, but definitely take him if there at 40.

Alex Neal-Bullen another one who could be around the mark.

Considering most the players that will be gone played stuff all games last year, it is simple.

A post match thread on here, god knows where.

Was posted around the time someone said Strauss, Blease and Tappy had all been told in their exit interviews the club would try to trade them.

The Brisbane and GWS losses were easily the worst, but you're right. They're all terrible except the ones we almost pinched.

With only Tapscott out of contract and deadline looming 31st Oct, i can only see him moving on and that will allow us 3 picks at the draft 2, 3. and 40, was hoping we could use pick 53 as well..

If Tapscott goes we will have 4 picks.

7 have gone so far and 4 have joined.

The Jetta upgrade will come in another way. Either LTI or a player going to the Rookie list.

There is no mechanism for this Jetta workaround. It won't happen.

He will have to be delisted and picked in the Rookie Draft.

I hope another 2 are delisted by Friday and JT is placed on the LTI. Great striving point for all the rookies to know that there is a senior list spot if you are willing to grab it Ala - Nev

Who will have to be delisted? If it's Jetta I don't think he is on the senior list. If he is, someone then needs to be delisted and maybe another, for us to use our 4 picks. That is without a DFA or PSD 2.

I have just looked at the club site and Jetta appears with the senior list and only 2 boys, King and Harmes, appear as Rookies.

So if he stays there, we at the moment only have spots for ND 2 and 3. If Tapscott is delisted that gives us pick 40, or PSD 2 or a DFA.

We clearly need to free up some more spots.

Jetta has been upgraded http://www.afl.com.au/news/2014-10-23/georgiou-next-demon-to-go

As a result we are in a tricky situation of having to decide whether to delist more players or just to waste picks 40, 53 and potentially a UFA or pre-season draft option like Port's Ben Newton which would be pretty stupid really given the lack of quality on our list now.

As a result I can't see us keeping Tapscott and it is in our interests to delist one other contracted player (eg: Evans) and also move one other back down to the rookie list (eg: McKenzie) and take a chance that they won't be grabbed by another club, which is a pretty good risk policy given our current standing.

What I don't understand is why this hasn't been done already? I get they have to wait and see what players become available by other club's cullings, but we still should be aiming to use pick 40 and 53 regardless. Is Tapscott away overseas and therefore Roosy can't speak to him personally yet. Ditto Evans.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
