If we want to have any strong chance of keeping this list together, we simply have to win serious games of Football 

half the Competition would love nothing more than to rip our list apart. 
They don’t want the MFC to succeed. 
 

Hogan was/is a talented boy who won’t make it long term in this league 

It was sad to see him go, but it was the right decision. 
he is not the core we need to fight for

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 th

2 year Contract Extension. WELL DONE TRAC!!! ???

Petracca: "I love the club" "It's pretty special that Jack is a one club player"

Demonland: He gone

Despite having the superstar image, Trac always seemed to me as a real needs to be loved player. As long as we keep winning, i'm sure he will get a enough love from the club and fans.

That was a no win situation for Trac. He was in a set up. He knew it going in and no doubt so did the club and his manager. He stayed to script. He was no more nervous or unconvincing in his responses to last time he was on the show. Will get better but a long way to go as a media performer.

I don't know what people expect from him. He hasn't knocked back an offer from the club or anything like that.

Does anyone know who Trac's manager is. If its Paul Connors beware. He is Ollie's manager. I will not forget the Judd debacle.

You do also realise that he represents the player, he is the players representative to clubs to discuss with them how he wants to proceed, he is not making the decision for the player...

Judd made his own call and with the help of Connors used Melb to get a massive pay packet at a two bit, poo box club. Seeing Judd and his wife’s ways of making money since, the way the Dees (a three bit, poo box club at the time) were used as leverage is not surprising even if annoying for us.

From the horse's mouth:

Asked whether he wants to be at Melbourne beyond his current contract, he replied: “Yeah, I do. I love the club.”  He later added: “Being a one-club player is pretty special.”

I watched him live on AFL360 and 2 things occurred to me:

1. Pettacca seems happy.

2. Mark Robinson is the least intelligent person to ever be on Television in Australia. It’s impossible for him to get through a sentence without saying 2 words incorrectly. He’s oafish, rude and unbearable. I can’t stand that show, and haven’t watched it in years because of him. We have some very smart, articulate people in the football community, and it’s mind boggling that he somehow ends up getting so much work. He offers nothing.

In Trac's situation, unless he's made the decision or is about to re-sign, it would be remiss to declare his never leaving.

Clubs winning, strong relationship with Goody, getting marquee opportunities (Afl360), in our unofficial leadership group, best mates with Clarry & Salem and now mentoring Kozzy & Spargo. The signs are great.

Am I reading this wrong or is the fact that CP5 used to have a poster of Scott Pendlebury on his bedroom wall and Collingwood made a complete @rse of their last trade period the two things driving this narrative ?

People (usually driven by the media) make such a big deal about the club that players supported as a kid. Sure we'd all love to play for the Dees but if we were drafted by Fremantle you'd probably be a Docker through and through.

Although if the Dees then came knocking with a mighty big cheque ...

People need to stop getting sucked in by lazy journalism. I've said it a million times and i'll say it again - outlets report provocative crap like this for clicks.

clicks = dollars.

Why don't we just tranfer the whole Team over to Collingwood. they want Weideman, Petracca, Oliver and they are sniffing around 

Kossie and Spargo.

The Television Media are in a beverage filled stupor over a Club they, unless the mums and dads told them, have never even heard of, let alone had to study conscientiously, so at last, in line with doing a job, just have to actually work creatively and not just heresay.

I watched the start of Christian's segment but, as much as I wanted to watch our boy perform well on TV, I had to change channels because I could not stand Robinson's dumb, insulting and offensive questioning of Christian's future intentions.

Should this happen again, Christian should be primed with a quick, pithy response such as "you'll be the last to know", or "I'll let you know when I know" or "my contract is my business so please don't ask again". Or better still alert Whately before the show to control the mouth on his left.

It might hurt Christian's media career on 360 but so what? He is a smart boy and will do well wherever he goes post footy. He doesn't need drek like Robbo.

I just watched his spot on 360

Robinson really is cringe worthy to the point of pure anger

The definition of gutter sport journalism 

I haven’t read a HUN for nearly 2 years, i feel much cleaner. 
 

Good to know that Kozzie eats Coco Pops before a game

    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.

    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
