I honestly struggle with the loyalty thing. If my employer did to me what was done to these guys, it would inspire very little loyalty in me.

That is why 'loyal' was in quotation marks, guys.:rolleyes:

Was just mentioned on SEN that Hurley is 50/50 to be at Essendon and Melbourne is a massive chance due to the Simon Goodwin relationship.. Giddy up!

...so not a reporter then. :-(

The man bun puts me off...

I'm sure training as a group would be beneficial for him. I'm sure his angst wouldn't have been with the players. 

Until he signs something IMO there is no significant development.

Hate to be bearer of disappointing news.  Channel 7 is reporting that Hurley has started training with the core banned players, (which he has refrained from up til now).

A significant development suggesting he will re-sign with EFC.

If he and Hibberd are a 'package' and will stay together or go together then we could almost cross him off the list as well.

If true good on them for being 'loyal'.

We all move on. I am sure mfc will strengthen our defence with an experienced player.  Full confidence!

Proves there was something going down which took till 15th June to sort out (cure) and someone had to do something about it quick. So C7 sniffer(sleeping) dogs pulled their collective fingers out  and were informed about  no smoke here anymore. Big powers at play in Bomberland  Some hell of reports to be read one day.

Pretty sure that same vision included Melksham returning to train with that same banned group? Unless they merged the two stories to make it seem that way. 

Butttt if it's the first then not entirely sure that hurley training is enough to say he is a bomber next year

ESSENDON would receive no free agency compensation pick if Michael Hurley walked out to one of a growing list of AFL suitors.

The All-Australian centre half-back remains unwilling to commit to the Bombers.

Essendon could have cashed in on Cale Hooker’s departure by securing a free agency compensation selection in the top handful of national draft selections.

But is understood if Hurley left as a free agent, it would be as a delisted free agent for which the club receives no compensation.

So no trade required, although it could be a good move to trade for him rather than go through the court process and setting a worrying precedent.

So it would be good to acquiesce to the outrageous demands of dodo, and sell the farm, rather than take a fantastic player for free?

 

I think if you were to join our recruiting team, That would be the worrying precedent.....

The precedent would only include those who have been banned for PEDs I would presume, hardly a common occurence

Im not sure this is such a good thing. In a way it makes it harder for Hurley to walk . It mean his old club, which he is bound to feel some allegience to, will get nada if he goes. A fcat, that should he go, would be bound to cost him friendships. If he's angry enough and wants to go then great but if he's waivering then this set up would probably lean him into staying.

Why would you feel any allegiance to a club that looked upon you as a guinea pig at best ??

Id burn down their club with glee before re-signing with such !!

This  old club stuff...just bullshlt that EFC want anyone and everyone to buy into

I would like friends who gave me advice that was beneficial to my overall wellbeing, not friends who had other allegiances and vested interests like the ones who have been around in the past.

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
