I don't know why his preference is relevant 

The Bombers will find out this year.

I said it a little while ago. But I believe Harmes 5 year contract (possibly back ended) was done early to free up space to take Martin...

I'd love jack martin at the club, however I'd much prefer to have cap space and be in the picture for those 2020 free agents. [censored] that list looks amazing

Previously cold to occasionally lukewarm, I'm now fully in support of poaching Martin from Carlton. The surprise inclusion of Bennell has left me ravenous for more, a return to my lower socio-economic youth when at Christmas I would tell myself that presents didn't matter - until I unwrapped the very first gift, and then instantly bored of last freebie and caught in the grip of a capitalistic frenzy would be immediately desperate for fresh stimulation. Who gave a [censored] if the parents couldn't afford it?

Take him at pick 2 and pay what we can afford.  Maybe around 350-400k

Wanted to play for Carltank? Bad luck pal, its a draft

Keep up. He nominates a contract amount which must be agreed upon. We can't give him 350 if he has nominated 600

Or $800k, if Blues can afford it and they know we want him.

If he doesn't want to play for us at a reasonable amount, make those scum bags pay through the nose.

I heard from someone in the know at Carlton that they will front load at 800k for the first year and offer a five year deal.

 

He is not coming to us.

Has he actually nominated his salary yet? When does he have to?

In my opinion if he isnt worth 800K per annum, he must be close. I wouldnt be surprised if he really turns it on next year. Although we have many irons in the fire, Martin is close to a sure bet as an A grade player.

Probably im wrong but I think he is fit now and ready to fire. Much more likely to play 20 games than Bennell. While costing a lot more than any other PSD player, if we have the money, I hope we go for it and act like a big club would.

Didn't  this scenario happen to us years ago with that backman from Sydney.???. Put a shitload on his own head so we couldn't pay and got to the tigers.  Thought the afl should of canned this loophole  by now, if you ask for $800 a year, they should make sure that player gets it for the contract years. If ya that desperate to get out of a club, bad luck pal.

Jack Martin has attracted 10 times the amount of headlines through this dummy spit episode of wanting to get to Carlton, compared to his entire playing career. Talk about melodramatic. Avoid.

I'm happy with Bennell, someone who wants to be at the club.

He nominates a 2 yr salary from what I understand. So if Carlton offer him a 5yr deal with the first 2 at $800 and the next 3 at $300 lets say (ie $500k a year) we are unlikely to match the first 2 yrs at $800 (he is under no obligation to sign 5 yrs)

Darren Gaspar. It was about 300k - huge at the time.

Quoting the famous "The castle" line "Tell them they are dreaming. He wants 5 years at a million a year  for many club wanting him in the pre season draft.

It's not a million per year mate, just a million for the first year on what would be a heavily front loaded contract to ward off potential suitors.

He doesn’t want a million a year, probably more realistically 600-700 and no doubt performance bonuses.

But he can and likely has structured the deal with 1Mil for the first year. Exactly what everyone predicted.

That number would force us to back end a lot of money and harm our chances of retaining Oliver and Petracca on good deals and then likely cost us player/s down the road.

What a [censored], happy to see him go to Carlton and chew up their salary. Absolutely no where near worth the money he is demanding.

This is where the AFL should institute a rule that says the average per year is what cold be matched. It its 5 years for 600k AVERAGE per year, that is what clubs should be allowed to match, not the heavily front ended number. If another club will pay 600 per year for 5 years............

Rule worth considering imo. 

He would have been nice, but we dont need him.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
