Our midfield is probably already the best in the comp and thats with all the elite young talent yet to play anywhere near 100 games of footy.  The improvement to come will be scary.

If you add in Gaff to that....   whats the level above scary?

Very Scary??

In terms of keeping the current group together under the cap (and adding Gaff), what’s the value of a Premiership medallion or two to a player? Financially post-career? Emotionally?

Didn't someone say on here the other day that the salary cap per club increases by 2M p.a. from 2019?

That could accommodate an uplift in Tmac, Brayshaw and Gaff.

Let's aay 750-800 gaff, +200 p.a. for Tmac + 200 p.a. for Brayshare that leaves 600k P.a. for the rest of the group. Would that provide a CPI lift for everyone? Not sure what the base is.

I find it interesting to read speculative posts on who we can afford and who gets what etc, when we are not privy to the club's  list payment information.

Don't give up your day job, I did speak to Jason Taylor today but it was about Austin Bradke

On Gaff, we don't seem to have issues with outside run at the moment, but this is first season Gaff has consistently played inside as well, out of necessity

We would be silly not to enquire, I just don't want us in a bidding war

As a matter of interest, what’s the vibe with Bradtke?

FWIW I asked some scouts about him and they said he was a completely unknown quantity

Yet fellow students at his school say he is as naturally talented as the King twins, [censored] both expected to go top five in this draft

What’d Taylor say?

edit: it is ABSURD that who’re if it doesn’t have an apostrophe in it gets censored...it is an actual word ffs

That's why I just make it all up mate and use approximations. Because I have no idea but you can at least get where I am coming from.

It's not actually. Unlike the contractions "they're" or "we're", "who're" should be written "who are". :P

Seriously, if we added Gaff to this group...

Wow.

Wowee.

We are 7-3 and footy is so good at the moment...  but its hard not to get excited about the possibility of Gaff coming to us.

It really feels like it will happen,  or that its at least very realistic.   

2019 (and beyond) midfield

Oliver - Viney - Brayshaw - Petracca - Jones - Salem - Hogan - Gaff - Fritsch - Spargo - Harmes - ANB 

Scary!   Like the Geelong triple  premiership teams who had a midfield that batted 12 deep that was unstoppable, and untaggable...  but ours would be even more dangerous due to the likes of Hogan, Tracca, Spargo and Fritsch who could go forward and tear a game open.  Oliver will soon prove to be a dangerous goalkicker too who can rest forward and menace teams.. the evolution is coming.

Even if we dont get Gaff we will still be downright frightening. 

Yeah, get excited folks.

Previous to this year he lacked inside work. He’s now doubling the amount of clearances per game compared to last season and averaging two more contested possessions per game.

Finally caught up with my source this morning who told me that Gaff definately wants to be a Demon next year. I pressed for a bit more but that’s all he would give me.

Yep, really. That narrows down the field of probably sources considerably (by 50%).

Now, does anyone have a list of every male connected to Gaff and the Demons (somehow) by let's say 2 degrees of separation and work backward.

It should only be about 25000 people.

personally I love this kind of stuff. Jusr remember that If you reveal that source  it will printed in the Sun the next day..

I have a doubt about it though. Mainly because  he's in a premiership contending  team right now AND  if he wins one with the eagles wouldnt it make more sense to him to be chasing $ rather than flags?. Can see him going to the saints if the eagles win this year.

Well, if my memory serves me correctly the 'he' is doctor operating in the Brighton area. That should narrow it down a bit.

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
