He joined on Sept 27, but he’s definitely been here before; he referred to @Fifty-5 as “old55” in another post recently, when 55 dropped the “old” years ago. I’m guessing Range Rover or poster of that type. I could probably do some sleuthing to get to the bottom of it, but I can’t really be bothered.

That is the bloke I was trying to think of RR.... ppffttt

It's been obvious we are more in favor of getting a good deal for him now than trying to convince him to sign up long term

I don't think that is obvious.  For all we know the MFC may have been keen convince him to sign up long term, but he made it clear that was not an option.  So there was no point in us pressing it further.

We never were...I'm pretty sure of that too.

Again...what we start with.... do whatever....to what we need at finish.  The numbers ...just a means to an end. Irrelevant otherwise.

Lynch was a free agent.

And so are uncorrected players.

Im not sure what your point is.... you're arguing technicallites in the rules ie unrestricted, restricted, uncontested but you've missed the fact that regardless of a players contract status under the current rules the majority get to where they want to go in contact or not

Im keepimg teack of the Tim Kelly situation to confirm all the power lies with the players and fa no matter what categoriy you technically sit in fa is alive and well in the afl.

It will be interesting to see if the afl have the balls to address the imbalance and let clubs trade players before they are fas.

Ie the hogan situation, sheil etc to maximise value

Uncontracted and restricted/unrestricted free agents are very different things.

An uncontracted player must be traded, either for picks, players or a combination of the two. If an agreement can't be reached then that player has to nominate for the draft and hope no other club picks him up.

A free agent can walk to the other club without a trade, however often the club they are leaving will receive a compensation pick from the AFL.

While your point that most players reach their destination is correct, the two types of contract situations are very different.

anything less cannot be an option. they are rightfully asking for more than pick 5 for Neale and Hogan is worth more again.

Unless it’s pick 5 and a good player such as Cerra, Langdon or Brayshaw

off topic slightly but re Tim Kelly of Geelong

what is the "stand out" period these days. Used to be a year. Not sure if it has been changed.

By stand out I mean if you leave or refuse to accept an offer etc how long before you can join another club and do you have to rejoin via the draft etc.

cheers

Not in a million years would I trade pick 5 for Steven May. Jesus! What a disastrous outcome that would be.

I'd rather take a punt in the draft with talent that high, at least you'll get a decade longer out of them!

Are you perhaps suggesting that we have yet another crack at a tall King?

Can you clarify - is it a site guideline that if one changes their username that one must indicate this in a sig block or in some other fashion? It's not addressed here: http://demonland.com/forums/guidelines/

Why are you asking me a question that you provide the answer to? 

I didn't say it was a site rule posters who change their name should indicate they have done so (however they choose to do so - another way might be to just to include their the fact it in a post).  I wouldn't have a clue. I'm not a moderator or DL rule expert.

Does it matter? Not in the scheme of things, no. But from a personal perspective i find it useful to know a posters history in terms of their content and previously expressed views. It provides some context and a level of accountability (eg a poster contradicting a previously strongly held view). This is particularly relevant (to me i might add - i can't speak for others) if a poster who is ostensibly 'new' to DL begins their posting history by bagging other posters. 

I also think it is just good manners and yes respectful behavior. Others might not - as is their prerogative. And as i noted in the post you quoted this view informs my assessment of the credibility of the posters and what they write.

The other point is that from personal perspective i'm bemused as to why anyone would change their posting name and not be open about it. I mean what is to gain? But again each to their own

Two genuine questions to you Superunknown. Have you previously posted on Demonland under a different name (or names as the case may be)? And if so what was your previous name (or names)?

The era we belong to thinks that way dc but the the current crop do not. It is all agents and communication by social media and  email. Face to face communication is the last option.

IMO sad but that is the way the world is in the 21st century.

yes pick 5 is slightly over for steven may but if it means oscar mcdonald is no longer gifted games then I'm all for it. 2 birds, 1 stone!

imagine playing richmond next year with frost and oscar mcdonald pitted against tom lynch and jack riewoldt. f#$k me dead! lever is a 3rd man up defender. we need may.

Absolutely spot on. Not to mention Kennedy and Darling! Defence is a major impediment. As Collingwood found out a lack of a key defender can cost you a flag!

That seems certainly true at this stage. But it doesn't mean that MFC weren't keen for him to stay originally but for example required him to commit to a longer term.  When he refused that then we'd be foolish to publicly announce why or scream 'stay' and instead explore options.  We'd just say what the club has indeed said.

I think he has requested a trade to freo already before flying overseas, up to the clubs to sort it out now, both parties have agreed to keep things quiet. He'll go, just the negotiations and outcomes to follow.

    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

    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.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar
