Sam Frost - Contract status

At the start of the year he would have been regarded as around 18-28 in the rankings. I suspect he has now moved to the 14-18 bracket.

We seem to be having this problem with a few players not necessarily having linear development.. ie Brayshaw and Tom Mac. Nice problem to have IF they continue on the upward cycle. With improvement in his disposal Frost has the ability to get to the 10-14 bracket.

You're understating it. According to the Demonland Player of the Year, he's currently our 7th best player and we all know that as a group, Demonland is never wrong.

Point taken however I would like to think that his ranking this year reflects our terrible form rather than his underlying ability.

Frosty brings something different to our back-line, pace.

So long as he curbs his ability to run himself into trouble, he is worth having in the team everyday of the week compared to SLOMAC, and twice on Sundays.

If true we are chasing Keath, i wouldn't mind seeing him come in at the expense of Oscar.

I wouldn't mind seeing Donald Duck come in at the expense of OMac.

Can’t move him on quick enough, as far as I’m concerned.

Surely Frost stays after his best season! 

Although it is tempting to throw more first rounders at Adelaide for Keath. Get him, and that's three or four first rounders plus Jesse Hogan for our three tall defenders (not to mention about $2m per year). 

Makes even more sense when the team's strength is its forward line.

we have not seen the best of frost, keep him. i would try him on a wing, his speed and height would be an asset there.

Just clueless.

Frost still has Frost moments, but he gives us a different dynamic down back with his speed and dash. If we have a Lever and May fit and healthy next year then Frost will go up another level. The big improvement for me has been his intercept marking.

Closing in on 100 games next year so another experience defender we need down back.

Must re-sign asap.

Maybe he prefers ANB at CHB.

Anyone got a list of the other players out of contract at the end of this season?

There's a really good pinned thread at the top of the board.

I am not anti Frosty but I am amazed he hasn't copped the flak O Mac has.

He's not a bad player, but he makes a lot of turnovers which go over the umpires hat.... But he's not alone there.

Frost is out of contract and playing good football. He is driving his own price up and probably the interest of other clubs. 

I can't see Melbourne keeping him. We have May, Lever, Jetta, Hibbo, OMac is cheap and we look better with Lewis in there somewhere. Probably bring in a fresh defender.

Other than speed and unpredictability Frost also competes with his direct opponent.There are  many, many examples of his second and third efforts and scrounging ground balls to advantage,

Compared to Oscars insipid contests give me Frosty everytime. Show him the money Please.

Reckon he would be a good wingman; reckon he is an asset at CHB. If he didn't have to double-team when OMac is in the team, he'd be a helluva backman across a whole game rather than being exhausted by the third quarter time after covering his own man and that of OMac for the first three quarters. Frosty is developing a style - it is just unconventional; he is going to be even more effective in the future so sign him up now.

Wasn't there media coverage just a couple of days ago confirming Jones has renewed for one more year?

Addendum: A quick web search suggests that Jones has yet to sign on but has apparently been offered a one year deal by the club.

He worked on his game to be able to run fast and then kick short. He may not always hit targets but its obvious he listens to what he needs to do. I am glad so many are wanting him to stay.

Frost is deadly. I love his speed, aggression, tackling and heart. I'm rapt so many others on here want him to stay at Melbourne. So do I. This is a thread that is SO refreshingly optimistic and much needed at this point in time.

Really?? Wow close on our most improved player and in a Carnage year, I'll take Frost anyday of the week. PACE, RUN, INTERCEPT MARKING, HAS SOME SERIOUS X factor. Other clubs would love to get him and if we turn our backs and Blink. Bang he will be gone. Time to resign PRONTO

    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
