Ffs mods kills this fu&($!)n crap threads now 

This thread has more merit then the Brayshaw thread.

Brayshaw has bigger upside, kicks goals and has more potential in other positions. But let’s not let the facts get in the way.

I agree with you on this Oli, but seriously doubt we'd get enough for him on the trade table.

Viney is a very limited footballer, compounded by his tendency to get injured. Brayshaw is in a form slump, whose best far surpasses Jack's.

If it was up to me Viney would be stripped of captaincy straight away and I'd be looking at potential options.

I will give him the benefit of doubt that he hasn't done a full pre season in 4 years. This is his chance this summer. He must change his game style and get rid of the rugby union [censored] that he tries to pull off every game. 

I am hoping he gets that burst back into his game that made him a great player back in 2016.

As my starting mid, I am still having Oliver, Petracca and Brayshaw/Harmes as my go to.

What do we with his old man then? The Brexit Irish Backstop for Northern Ireland would be easier to sort out.

We sacked James McDonald and it took years to recover any sense of leadership and stability.  Sure let the asylum decide to commit another crazy act.

Agree with this except benefit of the doubt  point. Personally I feel wholesale changes are required and to get talent you need to give up talent. Usually best place to give up talent is where you can afford to. 

Agree on starting mids. Would also like to see Salem given a run through the inside.

We should look into this for a few reasons

1. Our plethora of inside midfielders which are pushing others out (eg Tyson, Brayshaw). This will continue to happen

2. List balance, we need more outside midfielders and currency to bring them in. Viney will help us get there

3. Vineys inability to play on other positions, he is 1 inside mid recruit away from being pushed out and made redundant like Ollie Wines has

4. He is a free agent next year, we should try get value for him while we can

5. Rumours circulating of him being favourited by Goodwin and possibly causing a rift

6. His ability to stay on the park. We struggle to even get half a season out of him.

7. Jones re-signing- surely we only have enough room for one player bombing inside 50

8. Doesn’t defend

If there ever was a time to trade him it is now, and if we draft an Anderson or Rowell, someone will need to make room.

Hi old man does nothing as far as I can see. Spends a lot of time leaning on the fence at the paddock.

What is his real job?

There is one stat that stands out to me re: Jack and his importance to our side.

In the three finals last year, he averaged:

23 disposals, 6 tackles, 8 clearances, 16 contested possessions and 4 inside fifties a game.

When the pressure was on, he rose to the occasion, and that was off the back of an injury interrupted year.

He didn't set the world alight this year, but then who did?  Not many to be honest.

I want blokes in my side that can step up on the big stage, and Jack has shown that he is more than capable of doing that as a leader of our club.

Not a chance unless it was a clincher to seal a deal for a marquee must get 'missing ingredient' star player and possibly the difference between making a GF or not.  Or maybe a few!  eg;  Jeremy Cameron or Tim Kelly.

Oli, I think you should take your own advice. In 2019, Viney played 21 out of 22 games.

There are rumours that his good mate Ollie Wines could be traded for the right offer.  I think it is highly unlikely but it wouldn't be the first time a club traded their captain.

He is our least flexible midfielder so needs more strings to his bow as it limits Goodwin's game tactic options.  So i wouldn't mind seeing him spend large chunks of a game forward.  This gives others the opportunity to play midfield who are equal to or better than him.

Viney needs a top notch preseason to regain his form and if he doesn't regain it, that is the time to discuss what the options are.

I'm in the camp that he relinquish the co-cap to focus on his form and to broaden his game.

Viney will be fine, in fact all of our inside mids will be fine, when they’ve got legitimate options on the outside to shuffle the pill out to. Anyone would look hesitant and try to do too much if they looked up and saw ANB, JKH and Stretch etc as primary give off options.

Watch the intensity and congestion of this weekend’s finals and then come on here and say we should trade Viney. Sheer lunacy.

Read the latest article on the MFC website - he said he hasn't done a preseason for 3 years.  not that they were interrupted, that he didnt really have one any year.

what happened 3 years ago you ask?  he won the BnF

Lol every time I look your randomly posting complaining about me and not discussing footy or the Dees. Very boring life indeed. Your Obsessed about me mate.

Im sure most people would find discussions about trading Viney more interesting then discussing me :)

Yep and if he cracks the sheeeits then trade out to potential suitors, I don't care at what pick either..

Limited player with limited impact .. almost a throwback to the sixties and seventies when getting the ball and roosting it were the rage.

    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.

    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

    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. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
