Recommended Posts

no chance , ZERO , no thanks 

I would think it would be very un proactive to have him back

Water under the bridge, and not even The Bridge, but some crappy little bridge out Paramatta way.

Anyway, unaccountable and injury prone.

No way. 

As for those comparisons to the Lever deal, there is in reality no comparison. Scully leaving was not just about money - that happens every year in football and we need to cut professional footballers some slack. But the fact that his dad was scouting for GWS and getting the trade set up in the background while MFC was doing all it could to keep Scully - that is unforgiveable. The deceit was the issue, not the money.

i think some of the comments here are a bit uneducated. There's no way we would have scully back I agree but did people honestly expect scully to knock back that much money? Especially when we were all very ok with having Lever. And you're kidding yourself if you think money wasnt the main factor in that. 

It's all about that honesty really.  The thing that I think people hate most about  $cully are all the lies.  It's one thing to take the money and run, but he didn't have to lie about it and sell false hope to us for a year.  

As far as I know, Lever didn't lie and neither did Callam Ward.  From what I understand, the way Ward went about it was pretty decent and people respected him for it.  I'd definitely have Ward, but never that turd $cully.

Whoa, when did this beauty of a thread pop up?

He can outside run his way to Punt Rd or the Eddie Centre.

Yeah Moon you are of course right but its a bit like putting off love making to have another drink. 

Wine and women (or men) make the world go around Ernie. Surely a man of your calibre would know this!

It won't happen and I too think player unity is huge at a football club.

That said, if the players and club wanted it to happen and they thought it would help secure a flag I'd be fine, because I'm a mercenary when it comes to footy and winning.  Even though I despise the bloke.

There have been plenty of blokes come to play for us that I hated while at other clubs. As long as they help us win, I'm on board.

Agree about the cultural impact. Although what exactly that impact might be is pure speculation.

Anyway, GWS won't let him go so moot point.

And we would never offer him enough money to play for us, so moot point.

More likely to go to the Gold Coast, they must have plenty to spare salery cap space and ambasitor cash to splash around now.  He'd fit right in with the cheapness and tackiness of the glitter strip.

Hell no.

Looking forward to Melbourne vs GWS in 2019 when Viney, Vanders, Harmes and co. can run through him and leave behind nothing but a mangled corpse.

Probably a no. I wouldn't rule it out solely because of how he left. I would lean towards not taking in Scully because he isn't a great kick, and the last thing we need is another wasteful midfielder. We need midfielders who can hit targets, lower their eyes, and make good decisions. We have a problem disposing the ball effectively into our forward 50. Scully isn't going to help that one iota.

If it's one thing we prove for the rest of this decade, it's that him leaving us for GWS was the wrong move.

We can't do that if we welcome him back. I want him to watch Is rise and have him wish he was a part of it.

Heard him interviewed on the radio yesterday; pretty clear that he holds little or no affection for the Dees.  Talked about how difficult the booing and money bags stunts when he played us was. Feelings mutual. Interestingly he does keep in contact with Max (a little bit)

Im glad the OP has asked the question because it is a good one.

However that doesn’t mean I’m not going to emphatically say no. He’s quite a player and we could use his type, he took an offer we all would have taken but HE LIED. He lied, lied and lied some more. The Ox called him out on SEN and he lied down the phone to him. The Tom Lynch saga, as ugly as it was ended with him telling the football club he was leaving. Tom could have saved a lot of face by doing something similar. I’ll never forget the garbage both father and son were saying at Tullamarine, “Oh yeah just going up to have a look”. I think we all know without being a fly on the wall how his manager would have briefed both of them before that encounter with the media. Give me Jack Watts’s integrity over Scully’s anyday. 

Babowwww.

What makes you say that? I don't think he's the kind of player we need at all. I agree with the earlier comments re: his lack of polish meaning he doesn't fit the bill.

I think the more pertinent question is what makes you say that?

Running machine with speed, both elite anaerobic and aerobic fitness who kicks very well. Fits the attributes we need.

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th
