I would’ve thought the best and fairest would be the perfect forum for Collingwood to announce Elliott’s re-signing. Would have had the crowd in raptures and the supporters on a high into the off season.

We’re still a chance but deep down as a Melbourne supporter you know how it’s going to end.

He couldn't get in the top 10 at the B&F that works well for us are the Pies going to pay a fortune for a player that didn't finish in their top 10?

I don't know their voting system, but I'm tipping it would be hard to while only playing 16 games.

E.W. COPELAND TROPHY VOTING SYSTEM

Senior coach Nathan Buckley, assistant coaches Brenton Sanderson, Robert Harvey and Garry Hocking award the votes each match. Each coach is able to award up to 22 votes for each match (no minimum). In the event that two or more players finish on the same number of votes, the player who has the least number of matches claims the higher position. If these players have played the same number of matches, the player who has polled the greater number of ‘high value’ votes claims the higher position. n 2018, Brodie Grundy and Steele Sidebottom were unable to be separated on 203 votes. Their shared victory was the first tied result since 1994.

There was an article yesterday that mentioned he was going on holidays on Saturday and that a decision was likely before then. He again met with his  management and the Collingwood list manager today according to Mark Stevens on Twitter and that Pie insiders were confident. Well tomorrow is Saturday and no announcement has been made. If he wins an award tonight I'd expect to hear him commit on stage. Collingwood like a showcase.

Mark Stevens saw that as  good sign he's staying.  On the other hand he may have been telling Collingwood that he's leaving and waiting for his manager to announce it after he's left on holiday.

This is not the worst scenario. We COULD be dodging a huge bullet with this one. Don't get me wrong Eliott COULD be a massive asset to us if he plays every game and can maintain the 30 plus goal a year but he has never played a full season in his career and has missed 2 WHOLE years through injuries. We already have a cavalcade of perennially injured players. No need to pay overs for another.

Yeah agree with this, also I’m a bit sceptical of players who manage to find their best form just before contract negoation. I won’t  be dissappointed either way.

Gave Jetta a bath that day.

Anyone who thinks he's an ordinary footballer have seriously no idea. In saying that i am not suprised that he has said that..  same person that legit wanted us to recruit Jack Watts back to the club this year after years of raving on here what a superstar he was...

Exactly Nev Jetta is highly regarded on here for good reason. Anyone on here who thinks Elliott is an ordinary player should go back and look at that game.

Agree he is a star. Hard match up. Extremely good overhead for his size and damaging around goals. As we all know it’s the injuries holding him back.

I have two concerns about him, number 1 is his hammies. Number 2 is he is not a traditional small forward, he plays more like a key forward in a small forwards body ie lead up and mark. We need a legit crumber which I'm not sure Elliott is although he is good at applying pressure and retaining the ball inside 50.

Of course I still want him if he is gettable as he is a very good player. But he may not solve our small forward needs.

No announcement at the Collingwood BnF probably rules out the Pies. Given no Dees announcement yet you’d think he’s now entertaining the offer from the lions. Doesn’t rule us out yet but joining a young exciting lions outfit would definitely be something to consider.

The Lions being keen on him is interesting.  They are a much more enticing proposition for players now, but for someone like Elliott, would he want to move out of Victoria?  For a bloke who loves playing at Collingwood and is a Victorian boy, the Lions might make him turn his head but ultimately might not be able to convince him to move.

That's the hope anyway.

Someone posted yesterday that he was born in WA then moved to Queensland and after his father passed away when Elliott was a teenager the family moved to Eurora in Victoria.

There is a Queensland connection and if his brother lives there then that makes a strong connection. The fact that the Lions are coming off a strong season with a lot of hope for the future certainly trumps our dismal season. Sure the Lions could fall from grace like we did and we could climb up the ladder given a decent run at preseason and in-season injuries but the Lions outlook appears brighter. We have the advantage in that he wouldn't have to upend his life but a Brisbane offer similar or better than ours would definitely turn his head.

That is all predicated on him not wanting to stay at the Pies even with a less than optimal deal.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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. 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
