I really hope they keep michie

On the one hand I agree with you bin, but on the other, a decision not to renew his contract would indicate to me that our Footy Dept. has confidence that it can improve our list by cutting him free and replacing him with someone new. I'll stick fat with the Footy Dept. on that one.

Who was the imbecile that gave Terlich a 3-year deal? Extremely poor foresight.

Terlich has never had a 3year contract.

He had his initial two year contract for 2013/14 where he came 3rd in the Bluey in 2013 and played 14 games in 2014. Then received a two year contract for 2015/16 at the end of 2014.

I agree he should have only got a one year extension, but the constant talk of him ever receiving 3 years is simply misinformed.

So how come he's contracted for next year?

Both vandenBerg and Harmes have been upgraded and will be officially placed on the club's primary list on Friday.

We await a decision on a contract renewal for Viv Michie which must be done by the end of this week if he's to remain.

I think that Michie is gone, as if he were to be re-signed it would likely have been announced at the same time as Harmes/Hunt.

If Terlich were to be paid out, wouldn't he have to agree to it?

When Evans was paid out of his contract Roosy said he was surprised to see Barry leave, but wasn't surprised to see Evans give it away after being offered a rookie contract. Evans was apparently content to walk away from professional football. What if Terlich wants to stick around?

They can. But you'd of thought they'd do that with Hunt before Michie.

Hunt has just signed a contract.

'They would have done that' - To be more accurate.

Why would you delist Michie and re-rookie him when he's just played 11 games for us this year when we could have done the exact same thing with Hunt who's yet to debut?

Point I'm trying to make is, if the plan was to delist someone and re-rookie them, you'd of thought that would be done with Hunt rather then Michie.

We could always do it with Terlich? Delist and re-rookie so we're still honouring his contract. Believe we did this with Juice and Meesen a few years back when they were still in contract but we needed senior list spots?

Well then we have to honour his contract

But he might be happy to get paid out and get on with his life. He can get a paid gig at a local league too.

The club will obviously tell him that they have no intention of giving his senior games next year. Then it is up to him how he wants to proceed.

It's a delicate situation and it needs to be handled gracefully or it will put a lot of our players off side. You can't just dishonour contracts when it suits you. It has to be done with both parties mutually agreeing to the decision.

Not sure what you're basing this on? His disposal and decision making at Casey and the seniors has been good. He's not an elite kick, but very few are.

..in fact only the elite are, by definition.

Good call to promote Harmes. He has the competitive edge.

Hunt is an absolute punt. He has pace BUT gets it 7-8 times a game in the VFL. Highly speculative. Rookie place was best considering last 2 years.

Must keep Michie. He put together 3-4 good games in late 2015. I have him on the wing in Round 1 2016 if he has a good preseason.

It is good to see midfielder Harmes promoted.Hunt will be an asset if he can overcome ongoing injuries.The Dees will probably de-list one or two players. In the kiddie draft we must get players that are ready to play seniors next year and are capable of putting pressure on

Watts and Dawes. One of our weakest is the lack of a back up ruckmam. Mason Redman would be a good late round pick up,he is a small mid.If the rumour is correct re Prestia for next year perhaps we have enough mids.

No doubt Terlich may well harbour the desire to stick around but let's be realistic for a moment. As a listed player with his age and experience, he failed to get a senior gig once this year while others around him who have subsequently been delisted managed to get game time. With the list expected to be stronger in 2016, I can't see any of the coaches reassuring him about his prospects of playing anywhere other than in the VFL if he remains.

I know there is an argument for not breaking written agreements and avoiding the stigma of a club that dismisses its loyal servants summarily but negotiating the early termination of inconvenient contracts is part and parcel of commercial life (and how often are we told these days that football's a business?). I'm of the opinion that in all probability, negotiations are going on that will result in a mutually acceptable payout of Dean Terlich's contract which will be announced at or before the next list lodgement date. Viv Michie might also be a casualty as well.

In the end, the club will have pick 50 restored and it wouldn't surprise if it kept another pick to pass on and perhaps even go into the season with five rookies (one of who might be a father/son). Sometimes, funny things happen behind the scenes at this time of year.

No dean is a good vfl player, it's a good idea have a strong Casey to develop to young players in a strong side, anyway the draft is sallow what's the point in pick a kid outside the top 40 you have to keep him for 2season, only need to give dean 1 more season, unless there are any delisted free agents the club wants.

    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.
