not sure of where Petty will end up but not on a wing !!!

Either CHF or CHB or FB or FF depending upon our key position players and who performs and also maybe as a swing and versatile key.

Lets just hope he  can overcome his injury if not in 2020 but ASAP.

Sorry, poorly written. I meant playing Petty back would release Tomlinson onto a wing.

If we take Parish over Oliver we don't get near finals If Smith and Spencer don't get injured against Richmond we probably win and play finals  If St Kilda took Trac instead of Mccartin we s

There seems to be a common misconception that Oliver isn't overly quick.  Oliver's pace for an inside bull is superb, we just don't see it enough.  But if you watch him closely his burst speed is very

Delist a versatile, 197 cm, 20 year old who showed plenty as a key forward at the end of last season? Thats going to be a no from me.  Cheers.

After his first few VFL games I thought he'd be a very good defender but he did have a habit of taking front position and getting worked under it if not marking and is a bit one paced. But I was pleasantly surprised by his forward stuff last year. Either way there's certainly a spot for him and I'd like to have him locked away for at least another year soon.

Also I've haven't watched the injury updates lately, has Burgo provided any kind of time frame?

Won't replace Jacko As both are very different types of player NO ONE plays like Luke he is a freak and a complete X factor on ball and up forward as a floater.

Will be Key position back or forward

As much as I love jackson and I recognise how good he'll become as a ruck, he's kicked 3 goals in 6 games. Petty kicked 3 goals in 1 game.

That's my point DrD Petty "will be a KP either forward or back " not Jacko as you are thinking from my post 

Jacko will be a ruckman plus mid on ballers plus forward who is versatile because if his range of skills and remarkable athleticism.

Of course Petty if at CHF or FF full time will kick more goals than Jacko but how many Jacko gets AND score involvements May not differ a great deal in total.

it seems like 35 is going to be too deep for some clubs franchises (e.g. gold coast) to get down to, so 40 might be an okay number including both full list and rookie list (not that there seems to be much differentiation these days between the two)

given that the minimum amount of draft picks used is likely to drop to two, i'd say that'd be seven off our list before any trading even takes place

likely candidates:

  • nathan jones (retirement?)
  • charlie spargo
  • toby bedford
  • michael hibberd (retirement?)
  • kade kolodjashnij
  • aaron neitschke
  • oskar baker
  • marty hore
  • kade chandler
  • corey wagner
  • josh wagner
  • austin bradtke

that's twelve - personally of the seven who'd go i'd nominate:

  • kade kolodjashnij
  • aaron neitschke
  • oskar baker
  • kade chandler
  • corey wagner
  • josh wagner

as six likely certainties, then it comes down to what the decision is retaining experience (jones and hibberd) vs height (bradtke) and smalls (spargo, bedford, chandler)

It's interesting the only players advocating for the smaller list sizes are the ones that are on the biggest money, that thinking comes from a greed stand point,they would like to see less players so their pay stay the same.

The AFL hierarchy is the one advocating for smaller list sizes to reduce the tpp

North Melbourne currently have 17 players out injured.  35-17=18....  I hope the AFL realise that would be a bad decision BEFORE they make it, not afterwards which is the norm.

17 out of 46 = 37%

37% of 35 = 13 players

35 - 13 = 22 players..................no probs

but seriously, a club would be able to add vfl players (or others) temporarily to their list when they dropped to a certain point

Guessing nothing less than a 60 goal season is acceptable from Petty then if that's how we're rolling with the maths...

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
