Howie got his wish to spend more time in the Melbourne forward line.

The hatred for Howe on here is putrid and really sick. Get a grip people, he is a footballer who is clearly being pushed out of his club and he is looking for a another club and contract to secure hi

No way North are interested. He's under 30.

Was 'Handsome Magnum PI' more to your taste?

Well no... It was like one of those anachronisms!! EG The extra in Ben Hur wearing a wristwatch. I think you'll have to do some serious workshopping Ethan. Please note . I can supply authentic monk's and nun's habits ( albeit stained) and a large range of exotic paraphernalia . Workshop it - consider a range of advice and let me know. I'm thinking medieval as a rough guide.

This is just a shocking deal. We did well to get 29 for Toump, but the rest of it is rubbish. Once again we trade with Collingwood and get shafted. It's seriously time to sack the recruiting department and bring in a few people with some vague idea of how to go about the job. First point would be NEVER TRADE WITH COLLINGWOOD!

The noise will be deafening when he tries a 35mtr pass into the middle and blows it after taking a screamer.

Then seventeen other Collingwood players just sigh and look at the coach and the final score....

Toumpas contributed very little in the three years he was at The MFC.

Howe gave us a dozen good games and a lot of wonderful marks.

Neither of them were going to make a contribution that would get us into the eight in 2016 let alone the top four.

Kennedy has joined who knows if he will be any better but one thing is for certain.

If we kept using the same players the the results would not change.

Well, Howe almost certainly cost us Prestia at the GCS. What a [censored].

I've been wondering about that 'Adam'.

If we want Prestia next year we will have to give up our 1st rnd pick plus some.

If he wants to come to us why don't we just do that deal now ie next year's 1st rnd pick plus whatever it takes.

We get him now pay for him later, sort of.

I have concluded either he isn't the one we are after or he hasn't decided to come to us.

Otherwise we coould do the deal now.

Huh? He already stated he was going to play out the last year of his contract. What where we going to give GC? Howe and Pick 6 would not have been enough.

Yeah it would. 6 and 20 for Prestia is plenty. But I agree with you, he wasn't coming home this year. He's a loyal kid, he'll give it one more year.

Mine never quite got over Jurrah leaving.

I don't see Howe or Toumparsefreckle on the Demonland banner, so really,they were not rated by any of you armchair selectors; so who gives a kcuff. 2 bit hacks - no one is going to be talking about either of them next year. Next.....

Well. Well. The HS is reporting: "Howe will play for around $350,000 a year on a three-season deal".

That is even less than we were said to have offered him.

Such a come down from the $600+ his manager was touting!

So he will play for the AFL average salary (excluding rookies and draftees).

He has been bedazzled by the pizzazz that Eddie and co talk up.

Can't help but think Howie has made a big mistake going to the pies.

Anyway, he is gone: an average salary for an average player.

Perhaps I am cynical, but that suggest there may be a side deal ...

i'm sure whoever leaked it to the hun had their agenda

like every other figure that's been quoted by the media over the last couple of months including what we supposedly offered

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe
