Would this be our first free agent signing since Shannon Byrnes?

I believe so. We’ve just lost them going the other way. Time we start landing some free agents for no trade cost!

Tomlinson will be a good get for us.

The problem is how we fit these guys into the salary cap and how we manage those coming out of contract this year. 

Someone remind plz if we delist a contracted player for medical reasons I.e Avb or KK, do we take a hit on salary cap with the payout? Cos that's the only way we could land Langdon and Tomlinson ... cant imagine how we get Laird in.

He will be a good get for free. If he works out then it's a win, if he doesn't then we didn't lose a thing really.

True. But that's the same for any player you chase. 

If we do get him in free agency, then I think it's a shrewd piece of business for the club.

Wouldn't think we're currently paying 100% of the cap and need to delist contracted players to afford one. Especially given Lewis & Garlett are gone already.

Frawley, Rivers, Sylvia, Moloney. Sure they’re not really superstars, but we haven’t had any superstars for a long time. In that group is an All Australian defender who’s now a premiership player, a BnF winner, a Rising Star and an unfulfilled talent who was a pick 3.

We’ve acquired Shannon Byrnes.

We definitely need to make more use of free agency. Not saying it was the wrong move, but we gave up pick 6 for May and we could’ve got him trade free as a free agent a year later instead. Our drafting has suffered the past few years and no one (other than Lewis) wants to come our club as we are traditionally weak and Aden now a basket case again. Back to paying overs to lure talent again!

With delistings and retirements we'll lose a fair bit off the cap. Losing Lewis and Garlett's contracts will help as well as what i'm sure will be further delistings + trades. Doubt we'd even be right at that cap at the moment and will probably only face those issues over the next 2-3 years when more of our "better" players come out of contract and start demanding more.

We have removed the Lewis and Garlett contract amounts (amongst others), but on the other hand we've re-signed a number of players (eg. Weid) on what would probably be increased amounts.

Wouldn't think Weid would have got a big increase to be honest. What other players have we re-signed this year who would have had big rises?

Would think any rise Weid (and probably Frost) got would have been cancelled out by the reduction in Jones' new deal. Guessing of course.

Plus Jones is on far less than his previous contract. 

I agree others would be on more too, but we have certainly opened up more room for this off season.

At the time Frawley was a big loss, despite him not bothering too much in his last season.

losing him to Hawthorn and rivers to the cats, demonstrated very clearly the flaws of free agency. Top teams raiding the bottom ones. It stunk (still not over it, it would seem!)

I see the Kangas are into Goldstein, interesting.. 

North are all set to trade for Goldy with their first pick. They get two players for the price of one.

It's the next couple of years that are the tester more than this one IMO.

We have to hope Mahoney manages things well and that we can turn the ship around a bit so weren't not relying solely on money being the attraction.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.
