Apparently if Stringer stays, Crameri goes, and if Stringer goes, Crameri stays.

Yes yes, bit of a Jeff about him, we got Jeff for peanuts, he might not be that expensive, I think it would be the kick up the ass he needs, Macca will get him back on track, a marriage break up can have a  devastating effect, he can get back to his best, I would ask what they want for him, then see if it would work, never say never.

Nothing to do with being dropped, lots of rumors involving his ex and another player but that was on the back of Jake not being the most upstanding citizen either. Some suggestions are that he needs to leave to be able to sort out the issues.

Not sure if were the place for him, he's not known for his pressure game (he can be great but on a very occasional basis) and hasn't got the tank to move too much further than the Fwd50.   

There were rumours his ex was dating JJ, which is totally false. He and his ex separated 2 months after the birth of their second child, after being together since high school. Rumours have it that he cheated on her. 

He has a lot of personal issues, and maybe this has been the cause of his dramatic drop in form. Apparently he is a bit of a [censored], and his teammates don't like him much. Not sure how I feel about him coming to our club on the back of this, but there is no doubt he is talented and maybe a change of scenery might really help him recapture that form.

Wouldn't identifying Geelong/Essendon mean he's identified that North/West area to visit his kids and probably doesn't want to spend time in gridlock going from east to west playing with other clubs?

aami stadium / mcg is hardly east

I'm sorry if you can't get around the paywall, but Beveridge confirms in this article that they ARE trading Stringer and that it's in the best interests of the club.

I don't think we will be a part of this trade at all, but it's still huge to think that they are trading someone so flawed, yet so talented.  Reckon someone like the Bombers will pounce on him and stick him in the forward line with Daniher, which will have BT frothing at the mouth.

Knowing Essendon's arrogance they will probably only the Dogs a 2nd rounder plus some muppet like Gleeson or Mitch Brown.

Wouldn't be surprised if they Cats made a play for him.

I had a few beers recently with someone who coached Stringer in recent years, not Bevo. Confirmed he needed to leave the club due to personal, ex wife issues. Hence not all surprised to see where this is going.

Also of interest, thought was Boyd was better when interstate as his mindset issues are heavily influenced by family being closer every week.

Undoubtedly he has talent and at his best would enhance any team: unfortunately as has been discussed at length, getting the best consistently out of talent isn't one of the MFC's strong points so I really don't know if he would be a good get.

But it does sound as if he needs a change of club.

Sounds similar to Jeffy, needs a change and came good at MFC...

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
