When you are extremely pleased with something it’s ‘rapt’ not ‘wrapped’. 

The difference between ‘too’ and ‘to’ and between ‘their’ and ‘there’ should be obvious unless you have a serious intellectual disability.

I could go on, but as many on here appear to be close to illiterate why bother?

Mate its a footy forum, not a board meeting..

Why are we delisting players who are still make the 22 deep into a hopeful finals campaign?

I'd hang onto all three of Kent Jkh and Tyson unless we are bringing in proven talent and experience. 

I’m finding it a bit uncomfortable calling time on guys who are playing a part going into the most important month of footy the club has had in a decade.

Will be back later.

I don’t think Tyson is in our best 22 come round 1, next year. Especially if we manage to land Gaff. A club will probably sense he’s gettable, and might offer him a nice contract along with guaranteed AFL opportunities and in that case he’d probably request a trade

If you're flabbergasted by Demonland, have a look at the other 17 AFL team fan forums... I bet we sound like Poetry. But on a side note, I too am frustrated when people can't distinguish "loose and lose."

Yeah that one can be a bit frustrating. 

Whike on the subject, why are there so many people in the general public (not on DL) who say ‘quite’ instead of ‘quiet’? 

“Yeah that date shouldn’t be a problem mate, our factory has been quite lately.”

Hunt should be retained. He shows great potential. He just needs to think more before he passes the ball. His position on the field may not be back. Perhaps wing or forward of centre. He’s fast and can kick long and accurately. It’s just his footy smarts with disposal that need improvement.

And some even confuse ‘his’ and ‘he’s’. Including Tim Watson on SEN!!

Hang on. Why are we trading out Tyson simply for a pick? Gaff would come in as a FA. Unless you package a pick you get for Tyson to get a real 'need' onto the list, I'd be holding on to Tyson as depth.

To get someone with more speed and run into the team.  Or to trade up in this draft.

Have to trade something to get something.

Tyson is rebuilding his confidence and his disposal has picked up the last couple of weeks. Aside from confidence possibly getting used to have a little more time on outside rather than rushing disposal.

Bumping his value up.   We have too many inside slowish Mids.   And not any of value to other clubs.

Tyson would be on decent coin as well.

This is the key DL5.

 

And we have to continue churning, to stay near the top of the list pile.   We still have a way to climb to get to the top.

Some of our kids are currently overrated on their output.

Some are just starting to give.

Can someone please tell me if Garlett has a contract next year? If so, do we have a little chat or do we keep him on next year's list? At the moment he is showing little, but there may be a reason (family etc). After 3 game this year he was being touted as the best small forward in the competition, not sure what has happened.

Contracted until the end of 2019.

Hard decision..trade (would we get much) or retain. I think he will want to go somewhere that he gets game time and the game plan suits him.

Our relatively crowded forward line does not suit him in my view.

You would think that our method of haphazardly pumping the ball inside 50 would suit him to a Tee, and it did early, but something not right with him and unless he finds his mojo, he may be a casualty I believe

Interesting on Jeffy. Ross Lyon is looking for experience, could Jeffy fit the bill? He is from WA and provided they absorb his full contract he could be had for a pick in the 50- 60s range.

Update post round 21

Retired. Balic.  Vince (likely). 

Delist Johnstone (re rookie). Bugg. Jkh. McKenna. King.  Filopovic (r) 

Trade - Garlett to Freo pick 55-60 ish

rookie upgrade - keilty

T smith and Maynard stay as rookied

that gives us 7 picks plus a rookie spot 

add - 2 x free agents

add - 5 through draft incl Toby Bedford 

add - 1 rookie

It is a concern that we have not be able to identify / draft or trade-in a capable ruckman since 2009.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
