WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - BEN BROWN

Good news.

Given he's out of contract and North have contributed to pushing him out, I would have thought pick 23 (which is now pick 25) is about right.

There are no certainties in football and there's no certainty this is going to work for us, but I like the move and I think there's a strong chance this will make us a better side in 2021 and beyond.

Look forward to yelling ‘Sideshow’! As he takes a mark and nails the goal from 50 many times at the ‘G!!!

A good nickname is multi-dimensional with a degree or two of seperation. 

With that in mind, I think his nickname should be 'Bobby' as in Sideshow Bob and Bobby Brown.

HUGE get. I don’t think some on here quite realise how important this is.

For years we’ve had no issues getting it into our forward 50 but conversion has been the issue. This guy is the answer to this massive problem we’ve had.

The only query was whether he was okay injury wise but our medical team has given him the tick of approval so it’s full steam ahead.

What a signing he will be, great stuff Dees!

He's also going to be a decoy forward to some extent, at least. This is also very good; it will reduce the onus on the Weed and Fritta so they can get stuck into it as alternative targets as BBrown leads out or moves to space just a little, dragging one or two opposition defenders with him and with his mobility, speed and possible distance achieved from goal, congested gaps will disappear leaving space, space and fewer oppo defenders. It is all very good news. Now, for the midfield clearances ...

I dunno @Cheesy D. Pun - a good nick name never needs a walk-through explanation.

If we had him in 2018, dead cert's for the premiership!

To be fair mate. This one was common knowledge 

Your modesty is admirable good sir! However, in all honesty, the Smith to Dees move was also pretty much common knowledge and expected by all and sundry, until he did an 11th hour u-turn.

I reckon that pick is overs for him, something early 30's is his range, hopefully the pick we get for Preuss will be the Pick 30 GWS received for free agent and we on trade that.

Next year's second round pick... that would (or should) be in the 30's.

Agree. Fritta may benefit with a few more chances as a result of this.

Our current pick 25 will end up sliding to 35-40 with all the free agency picks and academy bids, I'd rather give that than next years second rounder where next years draft will be stacked with talent.

Fair point. My thinking was that this might give us some more leverage when it comes to further trades this year (I assume we're still looking at a winger and possibly a small forward).

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    PODCAST: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week. Binman will do his regular stats files segment for the game against the Bombers and will also preview the upcoming match against the Dockers. He will not be taking any questions. I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    For 3 quarters the Demons ground out a lead against the Bombers in tough wet conditions at the MCG before putting foot down early in the last quarter eventually winning by 17 points and putting them firmly back in the hunt for September action.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
