after listening to the mfc podcast, peter jackson seems to think that we could accomodate a 'big fish' if they chose to come along to us at the end of the year.. exciting prospect.

Updated for the one year extensions to:  Spargo, Fritsch and Petty

Of the major 2018 OOC playres:

  • The McD's have all but signed.
  • After Gus' emotional post game comments on Sunday I would be staggered if he doesn't sign up.
  • I hope the club gives Jetta a decent contract $ wise as he hasn't had the opportunity to earn good dollars having come back as a rookie just four years ago.  He has earnt the right to shore up his family's financial future.  Would hate to lose him.

Edit:  late update for Austin Bradtke - thanks to @red and blue forever

Agree with all of that, LH.

Others who we need to re-sign include:

  • James Harmes, who has had a great year to date.
  • Tim Smith, whose last 2 games show that he can be a really handy player for us going forward.
  • They will make a call on it later in the year, but I reckon Bernie deserves one more year at the moment.
  • Harley Balic is probably in line for another year as, from all reports, he's doing pretty well at Casey.

Beyond those above and the players you mentioned (Gus, T Mac, Oscar, Jetta), I'll be interested to see who else we re-sign.  Does Buggy get another year?  Do we give Pedo another year as well, or do we have enough tall cover now?

I would agree with those comments.

Even then we will still have 11 OOC players this year.  Would be surprised if we let more than half a dozen go and the perpetually injured may be first in line:  McKenna, Vand and possibly Kent.  Also, we need to make calls on the rookies we have had on our books for a couple of years so some of them may be at risk.  Then there are the players who have barely played in 2016/2017.  Not to mention those that fail the NDH policy ie Jay KH and Kent (disciplined last year for drinking when told not to). 

The decisions on these may come down to list management and having 'too much depth' for some spots rather than ability and replaced with types we need more back up for.

So there is a very good chance that Pedo, Vince, Bugg, Balic, Wagner, King continue.

Bugg is mad if he doesn't start looking for another club.

He's on the cusp but it seems he is out of favour. I'm sure both he and his manager are doing the rounds looking at where he would fit on the other lists.

Balic may not be the easy re-sign either if he continues to perform at VFL level and can't crack the senior team.

Good problem to have when players are too good for VFL but can't make the senior team.

Could also see Stretch ask for a trade at year's end.

At least we have the "slowing down" of Lewis and Vince to offer as hope to some of the up and comers.

Why do you say the Mc's are all but signed? Have you heard something other than what we have all heard, that they are in contract talks?

No new news.  I found their interviews on wanting to stay genuine and convincing.   And there is no noise about engaging other offers.

And as mentioned by @Blinkybill in another thread some players have made a pact to stick with the club.  In that thread I noted that I had heard late last year that players are re signing for unders to be part of our (hoped for) success ala the Hawkes..  

So, I just think there is a 95% chance the Mcd's will resign.  Will eat massive humble pie if that isn't the case ?

I agree they will stay, as they have worked too hard to get the chance of success to just leave.   

They seem to be a very united and committed group atm and if given reasonable coin and duration it should be a formality, even if there are slightly better offers out there. Gus should join them in recommitting at some stage of the season.

I think this group of players are very happy together and that is always a factor in extending contracts.

He isn't on our list yet. He has committed to join the MFC

AUSTIN Bradtke will officially join Melbourne as a Category B rookie on November 1 this year.

Re Tom McD.  Lewis said last night he would have been silly to leave.  That goes for all our players.  Unfortunately, we will have to push some out.

That 2018 expiration column writes itself. There would be a large chuck of those players who won't get to put pen to paper and be delisted.

Credit needs to go to list management here, I don't think we have any players under long term deals that shouldn't be. Get Harmes, Jetta, Gus and Omac under contract and you have our core locked up. The others ooc will either perform for another one year deal or find somewhere else to play.

Fantastic list management.

Interesting with Bugg, Garlett and Kent in the seconds and Spargo playing well.

Hard to see us keeping all four.

Dion J is another on the cusp.

The others almost answer themselves save for Balic who may choose to walk if he does not think he is on track for a senior spot.

Update for re-signing of Harmes till 2020 and Wagner till 2019.

Nev and Oscar are in contract discussions with the club. 

A bit concerned that no word of Gus contract talks starting. 

Given some selections/non-selections of late, I would be very surprised if we don't trade out a contracted player/s.  Especially, if we want to upgrade our Draft position.  GCS need experienced players and will have plenty of draft picks to play with.  We have had good draft relations with them (pick trade to get Oliver, even after Howe pulled out of the trade at the last minute) so could easily see trading with them, if any of our players agree to go there.

What with the prospect of DanHan and Go and Get Gaff, coupled with Brayshaw....

    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

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    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

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    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

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
