The first goal of the game? The centering pass on the left? He had his moments (selfishly had a shot from outside 50 late). 

Unsighted after half time, when the game was on the line. Major pass for me. Let’s not waste money on this guy past his use by date.

13 disposals today, 9 of which were uncontested. Never looked looked like impacting the game, along with Stephenson, which was a major reason Collingwood only had 3 goals till three quarter time. GWS mopped up time and time again. His days are numbered. 

So the fact pies only had 20 inside 50’s to half time had nothing to do with that, almost our whole list must be past there used by your logic. He has been one of these better players in the 2nd half of the year and would be a major asset in our fwd line over the likes of spargo or anb or anyone else you could mention

We should definitely go for this guy. Won’t cost a kings ransom. I’d say he’s a reasonable chance to leave given the cap issues Pies will face.

Tom Browne just said that we've offered Elliot 3 years while the pies have offered 2. Also said other clubs like Bulldogs and Hawthorn will chase Elliot hard also in the next coming weeks.

Interestingly he also said that Melbourne have a tight salary cap space at the moment.

The race for Jamie Elliott now includes hawthorn and possibly north and dogs. Pies have tight space, Melbourne can’t pay overs either. Demons in good position. But will become major talking point

Just click bait by Tom.  One day after the PF and his phone has lit up!?? Gimme a break.  He has no idea who else (if anyone) is coming (the give away highlighted below)....

  • Channel 7’s Tom Browne is reporting that the race for Jamie Elliott’s signature has heated up, with Melbourne not the only club interested in the Collingwood forward.

Elliott, 27, is out-of-contract at the end of this season, and with the Pies’ year now over, more clubs are in the hunt for him.

“The race for Elliott has heated up this morning,” Browne told Channel 7’s Game Day.

“Melbourne are offering three years, Collingwood are offering two.

“My understanding is this: multiple clubs, with money, are interested in Elliott.

The main ones would be Hawthorn, potentially with salary cap space, also the Bulldogs and North Melbourne, so I think there will be a real race for Elliott now in coming weeks.

In fairness, Tom Brown was the the first one to call the Adam Tomlinson interest at the start of August on Talking Footy. And also the Ask Jones to St Kilda as well.

Whether you want to believe him or not thats up to you. But he's got a lot right then wrong.

Tom Browne is in the Sam McClure basket of casting the widest net possible. The more you say the more you seemingly get right, it's an absolute journalistic farce. Half these journos have already ended up with egg on their faces from players re-signing that they were signed sealed and delivered to other clubs. 

The key words there by Browne are "multiple clubs" "with money" - which could mean literally half the teams in the comp, and he'd be happy to take the credit if Elliot lands at any of the clubs he mentioned. Don't believe anything it until it happens.

This doesn't necessarily mean we've got a tight cap. It just means there are others we would prefer to pay more.

I could be wrong, but that's my take.

So who's our Stephenson and De Goey? Maybe Petracca is our De Goey, but I don't see a Stephenson-like player on our list currently.

Totally different players. Stephenson brings blistering pace. Fritsch brings foot skills (but only if he's forward of centre, otherwise he's a turnover merchant).

We do not have pace like Stephenson anywhere. The closest we come is maybe Hunt, Frost or May. None of them are natural forwards though.

If it’s true we only have 2 x A Graders (Max and Clarry) then it begs the question have we overpaid our B Graders and others based on potential? We have quite a few who are only VFL standard  and would hopefully not be on big coin.

When you sign blokes like Braydon Pruess to a 4 year deal worth 500k a year then yes it begs the question.

Max, Clarry, Lever and May are all A graders.

Based on 2019, many on Demonland are saying Clarry doesn't qualify, so really it's just Max. 

However, if you've watched the grand output of these players, it's not unfair to classify each of them as A graders.

The funny thing about all this is that most people think it happens all of sudden.  Interested parties would have been in contact for months and aren’t all of sudden throwing their hats into the ring.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    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
