word i have heard is it's closer to an average of $750k per annum over the course of the three years, so slightly over $2.25m total value, not the reported $2m over three

AFL putting in the extra $250,000........

Gill told us all they want a strong Essendrug

They certainly are looking stronger if you look a little "green"

Fits our needs to a tee. Carries the Daniher name. Would come at a high cost with high risk, but if Darren Burgess isn't up to the challenge of rehabilitating a gun generational forward, then why did we appoint him? (Aside from getting our current list match fit for the rigors of 2020)

Isn't the word that, if he were to leave, it was to get out if the footy bubble of Melbourne?

That being said, if he was available, we'd be mad not to have a go

With Joe Daniher reported to be possibly on the market and being courted by the Swans, I wonder if there has been any thought given to luring him to the Dees?  He is obviously not without some risk however two years ago, before injury, he played 23 games and kicked 65 goals.

He has the height to play back-up ruck, is connected to Goodwin from his time at the Bombers and has a family connection to our club through Neil Daniher. 

Joe could help us structurally by playing deep forward, bringing our smaller forwards into the game and freeing up Tom McDonald to use his tank and roam up the field.

I have heard it mentioned that he has a good character, is popular amongst his peers and a future leader, so maybe good for us off field as well.

What do other Demonlanders think? Do I have rocks in my head?

At the price he'd require (in trade and cash), and with the obvious risks involved, and with his goalkicking accuracy a bit iffy, nope.

Restricted free agent next year, that might make things interesting if the injury situation starts to look less chronic.

Every reason to wait and see, no reason to chase now.

I’m not saying we should get him but am surprised people are so quick to dismiss the idea. 65 goals 39 behinds in 2017 seems fairly accurate kicking to me, and had he kicked that this year it would probably win him the Coleman medal. His trade value is likely to be reduced given he has been out of the game for two years due to injury and the fact he is one year out from free agency. Maybe a late first round or early second round pick would be enough? Lewis retiring and Jones’ pay cut frees up some salary cap.

Also, outside of Jonathan Patton who seems destined for the Hawks, I am not sure there is any other more attractive and getable key position forward options available this year.

Would not been opposed to this if the new fitness guru has a chat with him. Very hard to stop on his day. If he is in a position to nominate Melbourne then it could come down to a salary cap dump.

Are essendon looking at big names or any of our surplus of inside mids (except oliver!)

Rocks I think. My mate an Essendon supporter would give him to us to ensure our continued misery.

Knowing the Bombers, they're likely to ask for 10 first round picks for him and not budge an inch.

That’s become a bit of a classic myth 

Bombers get their deals done, same as most other clubs

Seems like he’s definitely on his way to Sydney, which I guess means Papley is definitely on his way to Carltank

With their interest in Jack Martin, I'll be interested to see how they get both of those deals done with only Pick 8 to play with in terms of first rounders.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
