JDeGoo is a very good player. I'd love him but We can't afford him. Everyone's talking up the fact that we want Gaff, I want Gaff but there's no way we can get him without giving up quality. Who we getting rid of and don't say Tyson. He'd be the steak knives that Dom Barry was for Hoges.

Gaff is a free agent.

So he can just wander to any club he feels like. I got no idea on such matters.

No worries, here’s the lowdown:

Restricted free agents have the right to move to a club of their choice, subject to the current club’s right of first refusal over their services. That is, if the current club can ‘match’ the offer from a suitor club, the player must stay or enter the draft.

Thanx pal much appreciated. Still a fair bit to do then to get him over to our side but definately someone we could well do with. Outside run and he gives plenty of that.

Do we really need Gaff?  or would it/we be better, with  a HF/Mid, who has a touch of magic inside the 50 ?

Think StevieJ.

yeaa!!

let's get it to the magic million

You do realise the other clubs play games to up the price of the retaining club

And we should be doing likewise... talk him up DJ.  The pies also want Lynch.  And no doubt, quietly would like Gaff as well.

 

And we should be into all of them,,,, until we see where the lye of the land is.

you don't think De Goey could add anything to us?

scorn isn't your best suit et.

 

So now, Dee Goey anyone ?

 

Forget Gaff, Jordan is the won we want.  the Roos are into him, for good reason... he's a match winner.

This season he’s basically doing what we expected Petracca to do. He’s kicked bags of goals when playing forward (5+6 goal games), and dominated in the midfield on both the inside and outside. We don’t have picks to get him, so pipe dream. Hopefully Petracca gets a rocket and follows De Goeys lead as he should be the better of the two.

Only problem I see with De Goey is that the dude can’t kick straight 

I haven't watched him on enough occasions to debate that, but his recent games suggest he's adequate.?

 

The way I see it is this,,, Gaff has been said to be soft, & too much an outside player,,, in past seasons.  Only this season has he started to get more contested ball, and started to play inside at the bounce, etc.

Why only this year... and is this just a contract year thing for him... I like Gaff, but I want us to look far and wide this season for the right player fit for us...   Prior to us committing our last bit of salary cap space on another medium-speed midfielder.

 

I don't think Gaff's 'quick', by any real measure, but maybe not slow.

SO I wonder how he will add speed and a point of difference, to our midfield list?

 

DeGoey certainly would add some speed, and a touch of magic to our on-ball division, and the list?

 

Surely both would cost us similar, in terms of salary cap numbers.?

I do not think Petracca will ever be a fast Mid. 

I see Petraca as more a power mid, power medium-forward.

But not so, agile and quick.

 

I sense DeGoey is quick by foot, and his footy mind.

So you think Gaff is quick enough, to bring us what we lack in the midfield.

... which I think is midfield speed and agility..

Did you just quote yourself and ask yourself a question? 

I'm awaiting the answer with anticipation although it's probably not something uncommon for Deeluded.

Change of personnel and change of role. WCE have lost their two main clearance players from last year in Priddis and Mitchell to retirement. So Gaff is one of those filling that gap.

Agree he is not lightning but he runs both ways from pocket to pocket and does so relentlessly

As I said I like Gaff... but with our dwindling resources in the salary cap, this deecision is Crucial, to get it right.   We are very one geared.  We are very much a power geared side,,, and i want us to add an extra dimension to our run and carry.

Pace, breaks big games open.

Sure we could get De Goey, just don’t cry that we have to give up Petracca and Brayshaw to do it

We can do it, IF we want to.

Mind you it doesn't have to be DeGoey, but he has that x factor.   Whitfield, Kelly,  and no doubt others can do it.  But do they carry X factor.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
