Wines Unsure of Contract

If we get Wines we are going 25-0 next season.   This is not hyperbole.

We would have quite literally the greatest midfield ever assembled. 

Melbourne had a chance to pick him up the same year that Viney was picked at 26 in the father and son selection in 2012. Viney and Wines friends from a young age playing junior footy. However as it turned out Toumpas got through  at 4  in Melbourne's selection  and  picked him up instead.  Wines went at no. 7. to Port. I somehow think that he won't pick us if he wanted to leave Port. It's just a hunch. He would be more than handy if we acquired him but I think at the time the grapevine had him going to Melbourne. You would have to ask Todd Viney why we didn't pick him up.

If Todd Viney knows why I would love for him to elucidate us if for no other reason to help us all avoid unnecessarily wasting time on baseless speculation

Neeld asked Wines who would you take if  you were us  and Wines said toumpas

Yes folks it is that sad! 

Haven’t heard that, but I was listening to SEN when they asked Jack Viney who he’d take and he said Jimmy Toumpas.

Oh well, we take Wines and he drags us over the line in a few of the close games in 2014 and 15.  This pushes us up the draft order and we miss out on Petracca, Brayshaw and Oliver.  Essendon won’t accept a later second round pick for Melksham and Hibberd and tell us to take a hike.  Another club pounces on ANB and O’Mac and Tom McDonald leaves the Dees to play alongside his brother.  Hogan doesn’t want to play in a forward line without any support so he departs and Lewis doesn’t sign onto a club that doesn’t even have a key forward.

 

Passing on Wines was the best thing we’ve ever done.

Not a bad argument. Certainly makes us all feel better!

Go on to the BF Port forum.

Some don't overly care if he goes, as his kicking isn't up to scratch.

But, like others, Gaff is the one we need.

On AW tonight apparently we're also into Ed Langdon, along with a couple of other clubs.

[censored] you Neeld...

For all the grief that we have suffered under Neeld, I don't think it fair to blame him for this selection.

And I have also wondered, and I think said on these forums what TPF39 has said below (though maybe not being quite so enthusiastic as his last sentence.

Trac, Brashaw, Oliver  >> Wines alone.

Did that come from the same goose who said we were making a play for Zac Dawson back in the day..

The week before the draft. 

He based it on skills, leadership and training standards.  We shouldn’t forget that Toumpas was a junior star and was considered a top 2 pick all year, whilst  Wines was a bolter who was projected to be a late first rounder leading into the U18 champs.

Theyre kids, it happens- just ask O’Rourke and Plowman who went at 2 and 3.

We should have got Wines over Doupass,however Wines would have cut his wrist playing under Neeld.Doupass was the right (b.s) fit for us. Do we need Wines probably not ,if Hunt and J.Smith hit their straps we might not need a Gaff. Isn't Ginga Ninja quick?

Ok, makes sense.

As you say, Toumpas looked like a good pickup to me at the time.  Standing up as an under 18 and playing well in a senior SANFL grand final spoke volumes to me that he was made of the right stuff... just went down hill from there.  I guess it's a pretty big jump playing SANFL to AFL and different playing in the best team in the comp to slogging it our trying to make your way in the game with the wooden spooner.

The other reasonable defense for picking up Toumpas over Wines in my mind would be that we already had three on ball bulls in the bag at that point with Jones, Vince and Viney, so some outside polish to complement that also made sense from a ballance perspective.

...Probably also expected Trenners to be a hard run all day inside player for us as well.

And Dom Barry... basically half the Port Adelaide midfield squad.

IMO Kent, Frost and ANB should be held onto, on their day they’re all unstoppable 

If Wines wanted to move, and we had the opportunity, I would grab him and not Gaff.

No slight on Gaff at all, but Wines in our midfield,,, with Vince, Lewis soon, and Jones soon enough as well, all will have finished by 2021-22.

That would then leave us inside with,  Viney, Oli, Petracca, Harmes, Brayshaw, Salem, Maynard.

... that inside list, looks a LOT better, with Wines added to it.

Viney, Wines, Oli, Petracca, Harmes, Brayshaw, Salem, Maynard.

Future thinker: like it, agree with your longer-term synopsis. Wines would be a gun, but at some point our midfield would negate the availability of KPPs at both ends of the ground.. 

i also agree with your Gaff perspective- with a team currently slicing through the middle,  is it that necessary?

    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

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. 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.
