Wish Trenners all the best and hope to see him return to SA and play for Sturt where it all began for him. If not for injuries he would have been a  great player, at least he leaves as a great clubman.

I like to think this year's rubbish was quite different to the rubbish of previous years.

I posted elsewhere.

Thanks Liam, Mitch, Jake. Good luck wherever your path takes you.

Trenners, a very special thankyou for your dogged determination. Thankyou for the love of the jumper. Thankyou for showing others how to apply and reapply yourself.

I knew it would be a long bow getting back but you did. It hasn't panned out but not for any lack of effort.

To all  a thankyou.

Mr Trengove , you have my utmost respect. Good luck.

Thanks for the service boys and good luck. Especially Trengove - like most of the faithful I hoped for a fairytale ending to the foot saga, but it wasn't to be. 

Very sad to see Trenners go. He should be remembered as a terrific and loyal melbourne person. Accepted the big job with Grimsie when the the footie club was struggling. Poor form Neeld. But he has been a great support in the background building the stronger team culture. The others fffhew.

Brilliant BB, beautifully stated.

Shattered for Trenners. Showed so much promise and potential in his first couple of years. He left no stone unturned to try and forge his career after being ruined first by He Who Must Not Be Named and then crippled by that debilitating foot injury.

from all accounts is a ripping bloke too. Best of luck to him, maybe his sister can get him a look in at athletics australia, could see him running marathons still.

Would be great if the club could offer him a life membership despit not reaching the hundred game milestone

None of these departures  come as a surprise, but the Trengove departure evokes a horrible sadness in me. A very, very good young footballer drafted to a total mess of a club, handed the captaincy by a nightmare of a coach, then mongrelled by a smallish long term injury. Footy clubs need good quality people and he is a ripper. 

I know his best is now only state standard, so I hope he finds a good footy life in the SANFL or VFL or some premium city/country league. All the best to a true Melbourne person whose best footy made me a fan. Thanks for your service, Jack.

If there was ever a bloke I wanted to play 100 games it was Jack Trengove.

That family has a serious breeding record.  

We could have done with 3 or 4 offspring running round as father/son/daughter

 

I don't know why Casey couldn't draft him as he is regularly one of the best each week at VFL level? If he could continue to play for the Casey Demons, off our list and salary cap, then hopefully he might participate in a Demon Premiership after all! 

Love to see him hold a Demon Premiership cup aloft and, at VFL level he is an out and out champ and no passenger! ?

Wish Trengove all the best top bloke with one heck of bad luck.

Hullet and White just could never cut it.

Spencer, this guy stayed on this way longer than most clubs would of kept him. 38 games in a decade really makes me wonder?? Then to cap it off when the club needs him to finally make his mark and his career on the line, he stupidly goes and stuffs up off the field, good riddance Jake.

As supposed the leaving of Trengove is anything but unexpected. That he tenaciously clung to the opportunity and kept at it is just a testament to his self belief.

I don't normally care much but this Lad showed extraordinary character.

@Maldonboy38yes..its a bit sad.

I hope that the delisting of Spencer means the club has some confidence in the development of Lachie and Mitch King.

Nice thought but Pedersen is the back up ruck for the forseeable future and l'm affraid the others haven't shown more than small patches of form within games. Spencer (while l love his heart and appreciate his service to the clu ) was repeatedly let down by his body and not able to fill the back up ruck role.

Agree with that, though Spencer was decent as a backup this year for the couple of games he played.

The one amongst them who could perhaps get a rookie spot somewhere might be White. We're over-run with HBF types.

Spencer was unlucky to get injured after he had done a good job in the first couple of games. Had a chance to play at least ten games on the trot.

I don't see this at all... I reckon he (White) is an absolute dud. I'd be shocked if another club took him as a rookie... Slow, lacked composure, was a so called 'good user' yet only ever turned it over... Was the first on my delisting list

The guy was picked by our club, he gave his best, and showed some glimpses early on.

To refer to him as "an absolute dud" is insulting and IMO is more a reflection on the poster than the player.

Thanks guys for giving to the greatest footy club in the world, but especially to Trenners.  If only we could transplant your desire, work ethic and 'never say die' attitude to a few who will, most likelly, remain on the list.

Trenners would be perfect as a development coach who understands what it's like to go through some tough times similar to Matthew Egan who also had his career cruelly cut short by injury. Might also just want to play in the burbs and experience winning again

I knew that Trenners would probably get delisted but I still feel sad for the guy now it's confirmed. Foot injuries just wrecked him and at the time I was fine with him being captain but looking back now it shouldn't have happened. 

Thanks for busting your gut out for us and best of luck for your future.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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
