This bloke is a very well articulated man!

We are all happy now that we've got Lever but it's going to hurt next year when we don't have a first rounder in a top draft and that could have been avoided.  

Well that didn't hurt the Hawks when they won 4 premierships. they didn't have the first rounders because the New teams got them all so they had to go out and buy Free Agents.

Daisy,

You must have those same pigs flying around you that OD has!

I could not imagine all those East Melbourne captains in Clarendon Street having their views of the gardens disrupted by a football ground Tut Tut!

What they had is super stars of the game and where a destination club. We have neither of these so not apples for apple as they say. We play finals and a few others emerge like Oliver and that may change but it hasn't yet

Just have a bit of Faith. Good things come to those who wait. We have waited long enough , so it is our turn.

Picks after the top 10 are overrated these days.

Free agency has completely changed the landscape. We've got an outstanding young core of Hogan, Petracca, Weideman, Viney, Oliver, Hunt, ANB, Lever, Salem, Brayshaw & OMac, plus others who may still come on like Harmes, Stretch, Balic, Johnstone. 

We don't need heaps of draft picks in the next 2-3 years, we need free agents and ready to go players to fill needs. 

I've got a feeling the Watts movement is a part of that with someone like Gaff a FA at the end of the year. It's time we put all our eggs in the winning a flag basket.

The Crows were desperate for Gibbs. This time Carlton went to them not the other way round because they realised this was the last year they'd get any real value for him as a 29yr old and they had players they wanted to bring in and are rebuilding. Last year they didn't want him to go and so demanded a ridiculous 2 first rounders. This year they initiated the trade so I therefore have no doubt there could have been a three way negotiation so they effectively got what we gave for Lever which I have no doubt wouldn't have required our first rounder next year. 

 

If that's the case, then either Adelaide or Carlton would have received something significantly less, or we gave up a required player. So what would have been a fair 3 way trade?

The Gibbs deal was more dependant on the Cameron trade than the Lever deal.

PJ confirmed what we had already heard in a couple of other interviews Tommy Mac will play forward next year.

Given his super endurance I wonder if he could play a Nick Riewoldt type role. 

He also appears to be a much better set shot at goal than field kick. Suggesting a plugger or Dunstal stay at home type role.

These two strong qualities don't really seem to compliment each other.

Interesting about the new HQ.

Docklands is out of the question too much a green field site.

Stake Holders ie Council and State Government has a big say in what is available.

PJ said they are looking for a CBD site close to The "G"

Now unless it is The "G" or a redeevlopment of Yarra Park to incorporate a new training, Gym and Social facility, I cant think of any CBD site close to the "G" that could handle it

MFC used to own a magnificent terrace house in Jolimont Terrace or thereabouts. We sold it back in the 90's if not before when realising non core assets was in vogue. Pity we did not re-invest the money in a HQ but that fails the modern Business 101 test.

Not sure I would call Docklands ... "greenfield" ... the first sod was turned there over 30 years ago.

FWIW Toorak (or Prarhan ) oval would be my pick. Not sure who owns/uses it these days and how the sharing rights would work.

DJ have you been there recently?

It is a very small location that has no room for development. At a recent AGM this location was raised and PJ said it was a no go zone for a variety of reasons.

Well Tilly,

The HQ he refers to is not just an Admin building. It's the whole box and dice. Football, Training, Gym, Pool, Medical, Admin and Social Club. Jolimont terrace wouldn't house a 1/4 of the staff needed to run a football club.

Listen to PJ. he was the one who called it a greenfield site I presume he was referring to Barassi park under the Bolte Bridge.

Toorak Park is not the CBD, PJ was referring to. And not what you call close to the MCG

The big thing I got from this mornings conversation was the PJ is gone at the end of next year.

So who is the replacement going to be?

We have been very well served by PJ I do not want to slip back to some of the other dills we have had.

They did talk about a succession plan, and I gathered that was referring to all major positions.

You know what we are known for now?........... No Leaks Demons

Two pick 10s for Lever ?  You wouldn't hesitate to get a proven 21 year into your club.  He's worth at least pick one, if not more.

Some bleat and all I think about is Lever, Hogan, Petracca, Viney, Oliver, Brayshaw, Hunt, and Salem growing together.  We're the envy of the competition yet some can't see past losing a probable pick next year in the teens.  I'm glad I'm wired differently to some of you.

These two will be happy to be on the same side.

If you want an insight to Lever read this excellent article by Emma Quayle back in 2014.

It shows his determination, his leadership, his preparation, his drive, and his competitiveness.

We've got a guy with the same type of steely resolve as Viney joining the club.  They've already had a boxing session in Richmond together.  What price do you put on an individual with these traits ?

Anyone have any idea how important Luke Hodge was to Hawthorn's success ?  It's guys like Viney and Lever that help clubs become great.

And here's another quote from PJ;

"There was (just) one club making one offer at the end of the day, (and) I think that does say something." 

Amazing that some would think it was because of the public flogging we gave him.  The sensible ones would put it down to the fact that most clubs would know what Jack is about, and wouldn't touch him with a barge pole.

Hope you are right Saty.

If he is leaving in a years time then the replacement would want to be recruited soon if He/She is to be around before he leaves.

Sounds like it might come from within the club. The current 2IC or someone they will get in to be the 2IC next year and step up after that is my guess

    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.

    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 t

    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

    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

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi
