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.

Sounds like Tom Browne is just guessing who the other clubs are and other outlets are just running with it as fact. Business as usual then.

    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

    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
