Not sure we were ever really in it.

I have thought all along it was only a ruse by his management to extract the maximum salary.

If he leaves the Crows I will be very surprised.

IMO at a lower level this is Dusty at Richmond all over again.

Why would leave a premiership contender for a team that has not played finals for 14 years

11 years thanks OD...!!!!!!

Heaps of upside in Frosty. Tall, strong units with burst speed dont grow on trees.

 

Fix his disposal, get some more exp and he will be more than handy down back with Hibbo, Lever and Jets =)

To come home. Plenty examples of that over the years.

It may well be a hangover from round 23 Mr. Leg but I just don't see him coming to the Dees.

You can't teach speed. Just look at guys  like Trenners. 

Frost has speed, it is up to the footy department to invest in the areas you can teach.

Happy with him signing on.

As quoted 90% of trades happen when a players out of contract, those players who end up out of contract are delisted.By the AFL rules the club who purchases the delisted player must give up a draft pick ,i.e Fitzpatrick went to the Hawks for pick 84.

That isn't how it works.

When a player is delisted he becomes an Unrestricted Free Agent and can go to his club of choice without it giving anything to his prior club.

That is how we got Daniel Cross.

Hawthorn traded pick 84 for Fitzy because they wanted him to start training with them asap rather than wait until the AFL window opened to get him as an UFA.  So Fitzy was not delisted.

For the best part of 18 weeks he was way more than a depth player.

And I can see him lining up in our back seven (one on bench) from Round 1 and his speed gives him the versatility to play on small and tall which means he can play in the same side as O-mac and Lever if required. Personally I'd be thinking that when we're not playing zone, he should be manning Jamie Elliott in Rd 1.

.......and maybe should have in round 23!!   Ahh...the benefits of hindsight.

Agree he should have been tagged in round 23. 

Elliot did not play in the previous 3 games when we beat the pies and was a sub in the other game we won a few years back.  When he plays, we lose. 

I haven't checked the details but they have won most of their games when he played this year.  Its pretty obvious that he is their most dangerous player. 

I suggest more oversight than hindsight.

Someone mentioned earlier about moving him forward, I know he's a terrible traditional leading forward, but I'd like to see him trained up to potentially be a taller defensive forward. Some teams have had success manning up on the list of Rance, Hurley, McGovern etc. and I think Frost with his speed would worry those key intercept types, they'd have to stay on him as well as he does have the height that demands a tall rather than a mid size player to go with him. 

It would be only in certain games (I still think he's best is as a back) but I think it could be worth a try, if he happened to snag a few goals as well even better, but I think they'd come in the Josh Jenkins over the top style rather than out-pointing anyone on a lead or in a marking contest. Would potentially give us some flexibility if we wanted to change things during a game he could go back and then TMac come forward.

The more I watch the modern game the less positions seem relevant .

Hope he gets it all together next year.

He has some freaky talent but he should be having more impact on games.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
