Gun!

Kill for a player like tippa in our side.

At least he's a genuine crumber and pressure forward with x factor. We could do with a bit more of that.

Tippa is a match winner. We don't have a match winner. 

We don't have a single player who can make something happen out of nothing. Garlett was the closest but I haven't seen that for over a year. 

It doesn't matter that he has quiet games still. Part of that is to do with the fact that Essendon have a game plan that falls apart under pressure, (like ours).

Tippa won them the game tonight. He is a true small forward who provides elite pressure and creates goals and opportunities when there shouldn't be any. We don't have a player like that.

I wouldn't necessarily go after him but if ever we needed proof of needing an elite small forward then that is it. Jeffy was that a few years back, form and injury has lost whatever magic he had, we have to search high and low in the draft or in the lower comps for an excitement machine that will create forward pressure and get those mercurial goals. 

Amazing goal to win the game.

I'd love us to recruit him, just so I can sing that song to myself with betraying the MFC, singing about some Essendon player.

And he run and he runs and he tackles and he runs

He's coming to get ya (boom boom boom) he's coming to get ya ( boom boom boom)...

 

We could definitely do with a player like that.

Tipu is an amazing  player.  Talented  and clever.  I sometimes  wonder just how many of him there are on the field sometimes. 

He wont be going anywhere.  The Windy Hill addicts would storm the castle if ever there was an inkling to allow him leave.

 

Keep dreaming people

Won’t move on now, and his price would have gone up massively in the past fortnight. 

A genuine game turner.

Not consistent enough for mine at the present, goes missing against the better teams too often. If he can work on this he’ll be a gun. Surely we have the cap space, Essendon would want a first round pick and a player though. Gut feeling and nothing else tells me he is Essendon through and through.

All this for a player who'd never have been given a go if Essendon's list wasn't blown out of the water. Goes to show it might be worth taking a punt on a couple of random players that don't fit the usual draft profile.

I'm not sure why we're not one of the 3 clubs as we're screaming for a player like Tippa.

Stunning isn't it, not to mention the similar story for Brad Hill who also looks on the move and we're apparently not in that race either.

We're 17th. You can now expect players to not want to play with us.

St Kilda is 14th and is free falling down the ladder almost every week.... They're in the race. Its got nothing to do with who he chooses, I'm asking why our hand isn't up?

Perhaps we could trade him for Lewis...

Our trade team are some of the best around and Essendon aren't that good at it so I hear.

I don't believe that the clubs listed as circling have not been nominated by the player unless of course we've enquired and have been rebuked without offer.

I think 99% of the time when they say clubs x,y and z are chasing it's either already common knowledge or they're just guessing. 

I'd guarantee that there would be 10 clubs keen on tippa minimum if he was actually gettable. which i don't think he is. i think he's leveraging outside interest to get a better deal at the dons. 

I thought Coniglio was doing the same but he seems to be on the way out

Still unsigned... Would be throwing a decent offer his way.

Langdon, Tippa, Pick 3 & another forward be it senior KPF or 3rd tall. Be pretty happy with that.

It'd be nice to get another Casey player back. I'm not sure why we wasn't drafted at the time.

Showed speed, class and love for a goal (or 3).

    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

    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
