That makes sense.

Playing with your mate Eddie Betts doesn't seem like a strong enough reason to completely dispel talking to another club

Wonder if MFC knows this too and is the reason they said if he's not interested neither are we?  May and KK would have been the first people they spoke to

Nailed it much? I couldn't imagine an inconsistent footballer with unfulfilled potential getting along with a serious full back for a captain that demands accountability and players knowing their role.

When you’re looking at players of the ilk of Bennell, Martin and Murray there’s always going to be some risk and I’m not sure whether any of them necessarily entail taking cheap risks. I would be very surprised if a Goodwin team took a risk with any one of the above three but if it did, a reformed Murray might be the one.

If you were going to take a risk you want maximum reward.

Bennell is the only one of that group that could give that.

I agree Jack that there's inherent risk and it's probably greatest with Bennell because it's behaviour and injury.  But to engage that risk is probably one third the price of engaging the lesser Martin risk (and lesser potential)

I hope we'll take the well trodden path of simulating the Premiers and take a risk.

There’s no question that Richmond took a risk with Sydney Stack and that it has paid off to date. I think it worked because the Tigers put in a lot of research and due diligence and then, in conjunction with Stack and his supporters, put in additional effort to make it so. A lot of follow through is needed to reduce risk. If we decide to go in that direction, that’s what’s needed irrespective of the price being asked by the player or his manager.

i'd forget about him

  • way over-priced (even on an average year basis)
  • doesn't want to even engage with us
  • will highly upload 1st contract year to get to carlton

only suns might be able to call his bluff as they have a point to make......we shall see

I don't really want him, and it appears the clubs in the same boat, but a heavily front loaded contact would be better for us. Easier to manipulate our cap for just this year rather than next. Our salary cap crunch will come trying to re-sign everyone for beyond next year. If the bulk of a hypothetical Martin contact us paid 'up front' so to speak that would be ideal.

A very big difference between Stack and Bennell.  Taking the off field issues out of it, Bennell has barely played footy for 3 years.  I dare say the persistent lower leg issues would also cause him to lose a bit of zip.

I think it’s pretty clear that every individual instance is different and the risk is different in every case. Mental and physical fitness are all taken into account in the analysis of risk.

I suspect that the club made a decision on Martin based on his asking price and isn’t pursuing him because of that so yes, we are probably looking elsewhere.

He's what we need, would be thrilled if he chose Melbourne to take the next step - however quite injury prone so a little wary of the price-tag.  Funnily enough his recent GC highlights package shows him mostly kicking goals against Melbourne and Carlton. 

These highlight reels a bit better:

Welcome, but that makes absolutely no sense. Players don't demand to go to clubs by insisting that their club of choice take their mate in too.

Unless you’re the Suns and you’re given a priority pick to keep mates together...

Perhaps Melbourne getting Martin for free was part of the AFL Suns assistance package. i.e. helping us without the optics of helping us

    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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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

    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
