Oh no please the Pies have been duding us for decades with their cast offs.

We got them back with an overpaid Woewoden though.

Take THAT, Collingwood!

Elliott absolutely fills a need for us.

Would be an excellent recruit.

I celebrated Collingwood’s loss just a little bit more because I thought it’d enhance our chances of landing him.

Could be the reverse RB, if they had won the  flag he would be a premiership player and could then look to build up hi super somewhere else. Now if he stays at the Pies he could win a flag over the next couple of years. If he leaves for the second bottom team a flag is a remote chance. Take the two year deal and win a flag seems a better option to me.

Just what we need. But, the lengthy injury interruptions and with this brief current stint making it the perfect timing for him and Collingwood to help him secure a longer contract elsewhere, add the fact it's our bogey recruit from team. I am on high alert!

They don’t know lagwagon?! They sound very uncouth. 

I will have to check. Not sure what they all listen to! I'd say Nickleback but I'd be showing my age. Then again, I'll see how I pull up from the Bris Lagwagon gig in March - I might actually be old (It's been a long time since I was in a punky mosh pit (ironically probably Lagwagon @ The HiFi))

Enjoy mate, last one I went to was The Bronx at the Corner couple of years ago. Fing loved it and the crowd is aging with me so was all good

Has Tom Browne ever been right about any trade story he’s broken? Genuine question.

Cast your net wide enough and you're bound to catch something. So long as he says Collingwood or Melbourne are likely, but Hawks are "Showing Interest" (ie. asked once about him), and then Elliot stays or goes to one of the clubs mentioned, he can say; "See, I reported it!"

In fairness he was the first one that broke the Adam Tomlinson to the Dees way back in early August and also said right from very start that Congilio would be staying despite strong offers.

Unless we were in with a chance to land someone like Papley we should absolutely take the risk with Elliot.

Was at the game on Saturday watching him closely. He reads the play and presents incredibly well. He's slippery and constantly puts himself in dangerous positions. Strong mark for his size and when the ball is turned over he puts pressure on the opposition.

He would fit into our best 22 nicely.

And also allow us the luxury of not playing other smalls/mediums who might not be ready for AFL just yet YB.  They can continue to work and hone their craft at Casey a little longer and show us their potential there before getting a lucky window call up through injury, suspension or poor form if they've earned it.

Greater depth will also mean spots in the 22 are harder to come by putting pressure on those in the 22 to maintain their performace.

Something we found out was sadly lacking this season with a stack of games being gifted (yes often through injury necessity) to players who clearly weren't in form and/or able to take the step up required at AFL level.

Its all and well and good to have interest in Elliott, but is there a Plan B? Who knows and i hope and i dont think its to much to expect that there  are other irons in the fire..  but its clear we have a need for a small forward, its imperative we get a good one,  if its not Elliott then are we all in on Spargo / Chandler / Bedford?

My guess is that Collingwood will come to the party and give Elliott the three year contract that he wants. We should be after someone like Sam Gray who might be more gettable.

Didn't cost them a flag. However, Stephenson had a betting habit when he was drafted. Pies knew it and withheld most of his pay to keep him under control. He had a weekly stipend of about $100 first year. Unfortunately they couldn't stop his friends from starting accounts on his behalf.

The BOG in the WAFL kicked 6 and hit a lot of ground gets And is 186 cm so may mark well also 

He might need to be taken with either 13 or 15 or whatever they end up if we split 2. Elliot would be a bonus also so don't give up Langdon for run and Tomlinson for  versatility defence forward or ruck (not Wing) need a faster running player Msy e turn Butler into that type as I am not sure we have any one speedy enough for Wing.

If a 3 year contract at the pies is the issue a simple solution is 2 years + one year option based on playing a certain number of games in year 2.  Onus is then on him to stay fit and uninjured.

And if we take him, we should do the same: 2+1 option.  And make his contract a flat $ plus a $ per games played component.  Sensible risk and salary cap management.

Yes. Gray or Butler would definitely appeal

Goody on SEN:

“He’s an incredible player and I think we’re one of many clubs that would be interested in Jamie,”

“We think he’s got a lot of talent and he’s someone we’ll pursue. Like many clubs, we’d love him at our footy club.”

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    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
