Hi Turner, 

A pretty good one. The man who’s job it is to have that conversation with Kobe. Happy to own that statement.

Who's in contention for that list spot??

Why wouldn’t you list him with Casey Demons (where we can keep an even closer eye on him and he would be training/playing with senior list players)? I am sure Casey players are outside our cap.

May still happen CBDees. However the club think it best that he goes to Stingrays and that is what they will recommend. He will definitely not be offered a spot on our list.

We have a few spots open Dazzle as Hore and Nietscke will be on the inactive list. Daw and Smith to be announced soon. The latter they have big wraps on but as a half back flanker not wing or half forward apparently Goodwin loves him.  Will keep a spot for mid season draft but may not use it as “ there is not much out there”

It’s interesting that he still played in the VFL practice match (kicking one of our few goals as well). I hope the club does look at ways to keep him in our system to keep an eye on his development. This doesn’t have to be the end of the journey for Kobe and the Dees.

Any word on where young Kobe will play this season? Will he have a run at Casey or head back west?

Thanks Dazzle. Hopefully he has a fair rip in the WAFL and we'll see him come back next preseason

I follow Kobe on Instagram and his story came up and it got me thinking he doesn’t post about Melbourne anymore..

Then I noticed he doesn’t follow the Melbourne Instagram and any of the boys that I can see (only follow the indigenous boys) anymore 

 

has there been a falling out?

Not sure, but I know the club told him at the end of preseason that he’d be considered for the mid year draft. Obviously we took others mid year instead. Fallout may have occurred as a result of that? Speculation though. Would be sad for the Farmer family to have fallen out with the club.

You seem like a very sad and bitter man. Imagine being terribly offended at the idea of parent buying a pizza for a child after not being picked on a sporting team, and then calling others a snowflake? Boomers don't appreciate irony like we do I guess. Laughable stuff, can't wait till your generation is the hell out of my parliament.

Reading into it a bit much I reckon guys.

Don't know about you, but I'm pretty picky with my insta given the way the algorithm works for the feed, and I've definitely 'unfollowed' people from previous jobs or that I don't know that well anymore. Doesn't mean I had a falling out though.

In one of the Facebook MFC groups that I am in, Jeff's partner voiced her frustration and displeasure on there when Kobe was notified that we wouldn't be picking him up at the start of the year. A few pointed out that sometimes it just comes down to being simply not good enough and on exposed form didn't really show much.

Still didn't take it well though. If she felt like that, I wonder how Jeff felt.

Every player from the 2000 Grand final was happy to comment except:

Farmer declined to be interviewed, telling foxfooty.com.au he was “not interested. Happy living the quiet life.”

 

 

Just watch Robbo's interview with him a couple of weeks ago. he is a Demon through and through.

I hope the fact that he failed to make the cut at Melbourne hasn’t soured relations between Jeff and the club. He always seemed pretty happy as a Demon.

I mean if it does, it can’t have been that strong in the first place. I’m sure Jeff understands how it works and that it’s not personal.

What makes Bedford a small forward and not Spargo and Chandler? Is it his race?

He’s not Eddie Betts but Spargo has some forward craft - can crumb, can move through traffic. He’s a pretty standard forward flanker. Melksham is a different type of player, he has enough forward craft if it wasn’t for his lack of pressure.

ANB isn’t an AFL level footy iq player but he does have rare physical gifts to play the high half forward. He’s 5% smarts, skills and tackling from being an effective team man. It’s certainly now or never though. 

Not really relevant to the thread title, but what a difference a successful season makes (other than Melksham’s lack of pressure)

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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 th

    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
