Huge signing. Unlike the past 10 years, our young talent is all extended and sticking fat for the journey. Great to see!

Keep working hard Trac and you’ll enjoy success in red and blue with your mates!

I love the use of the plural in premierships. Arrogance and talent can be an exciting mix.

 

Pledging his loyalty to Melbourne, Petracca expressed how important it was for him to remain a one-club player.

“It means everything. The club put faith in me as an 18-year-old kid and drafted me, and all I want to do is repay that faith,” he said.

“That’s by winning premierships and staying at the club for as long as I can."

I cause he sign up he is Italian, what u Skips don't understand is as Italians are the most loyal people on earth, Italian AFL  players really leave there first club

A couple of typos in there but l think we get the gist of your point. 

First hand, l can confirm ltalians once trusted, are one of the most giving and loyal cultures around. 

Once betrayed, stay well away! 

Love what CP5 has done, to return the club's faith in him. 

MFC is slowly building and binding a very high class list for the years ahead.

Wonder, and if ever Mr Connors has tried to incorporate the word loyalty back into one of his contracts.

See, once Trac said the word "loyalty" it was all over...........

Ch 9 news reporting Adelaide were into him. 

Wonder how many other clubs had interests. Oh well crows, thanks for Lever though. 

They wanted him last trade period as part of the Lever deal.

That’s a bit of a myth.

:P

 

Purple made that up on radio, he ask  Mark Ricciuto, if it was true that Melbourne offered 2 first rounders and trac for lever, mark said where do I sign. Purple just makes thing up a bit like a  scattergun rumour maker.

I’ve never heard that one, and it just sounds outright ridiculous.

Adelaide’s list manager inquired into Petracca as part of the Lever trade. I heard Justin Reid state this on trade radio. He said Melbourne and Petracca’s manager swiftly declined.

St Kilda stuffed up SO badly with their first pick. This guy was a no brainer.

You can build a list around him.

Apparently he was thought to be a bit immature, yet all I see is limitless enthusiasm, loyalty and an unbridled team focus.

I absolutely love this kid. I’m pumped about this extension.

Super pumped!

Fantastic news. It'll send a huge message through the talented young group we have.

Just as an aside do you notice that CP5 jnr's neck is thicker that big bucks. Just wait until he grows into the Truck.

How this for timing - I literally just opened my four year old son’s new membership pack.

On the front of his membership card, it has a photo of Petracca. He’s Henry’s favourite player - Henry thinks he’s a real life T-Rex.

On the back of his membership card, it says ‘Consecutive years of membership: 6’.

I signed Henry up as a 20 week old foetus - exact full name and accurate (future) date of birth. Pretty confident he’s the youngest official member in the history of the club.

He’s already waiting for his signed birthday card from the red and blue T-Rex.

I’m relieved he’s committed to this club.

That last line probably covers the feeling of 40 000 others RB

Another positive step forward for the club.  We all know what a fantastic player Trac is, but he is also a terrific person and just the sort of personality you need at the club.  

It's more great news for the MFC and I can't wait to see him tearing it up through the middle this season and beyond!

Interesting

I assume he got a raise for 2018 and then a good amount for 2019 and 2020.

Must have meant that they had some salary cap movement left for this season which is no surprise given the renewals we are facing at end of season.

Well executed by the club and would love to see one or two others signed in the next few months.

How much is the foetus membership?

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
