Frost's 2019 looks better than it really was because the side around him was so poor. He's not worth what he's asking for. The reports suggest Frost is asking for more money than we're prepared t

Can we accidentally give them O. McDonald instead?

No offence intended Lucifer but I get really frustrated with these kinds of glib disparaging statements about the club and its players. People seem to constantly misunderstand how much of skill execut

Ok. Thought it was both knees. Still a worry & to be shipping out our best defender this year is a Huge gamble, but it’s done now, so we all have to observe and hope it rolls. 

The Forward line... will it work next year?

it’s almost toss a coon....

I guess we need to bookend this affair. 

 Frosty in the poos and wees. 

 

Still don’t think we should have let him go. Lever and may seem to he injury prone and then there’s Omac. Omg help us.

This is going to bite us on the bum- like when we let Howe go - the Collingwood coaches turned him into a star

Typical Typical MFC YEP

Well done Frosty I loved your style

Hope you tear the Dees another one when we play you

Cheers

Uhm no chit the hawks coach will love the challenge, just like Goody would have. You can’t put a harness on a greyhound. So the plan is to turn Frost into a 1 on 1 shut down defender who does nothing else. Strike me pink, innovation!!!!

Ps good to see all the “likes” on Saty’s “gag”.

I can’t see the upside in trading Frost. Would love to hear the club’s rationale behind it.

We barely got anything for him in return aside from a future second rounder in a hopelessly compromised draft, and our defensive stocks just got weaker.

Clearly the club hasn’t learnt it’s lesson that you have to have rock solid depth in your key position stocks. They found out the hard way as a consequence of exiting Hogan and Pedo in the one hit - result was Melksham as our sole key forward in a home and away game.

Now we’re doing the same to our defence. Robbing ourselves of an integral part of our defensive stocks while relying on injury prone players to hold it together.

Let’s wait and see what happens at Hawthorn but at the moment it just seems like a dumb decision. And if Frost does well at Hawthorn it will be a poor reflection on our coaches and footy dept. Very disappointing.

I predict that Clarkson's top up strategy will fail, he won't win another flag at Hawthorn and he won't be coaching there in 2023 after the end of his current contract.

I'll even double down and predict that Goodwin will coach MFC to a flag.

Bookmark it.

I'm OK with this trade: my sentiment is that he'll be worth more to Hawthorn than to Melbourne.  In other words, Melbourne attained more value from trading him than holding on to him.

To start with, the balance of probabilities suggests that Frosty's value has peaked and now was the perfect time to offload him and for Melbourne to attain maximum trade value.

Let's assume that the injury gods smile upon us next season and May and Lever play most games.  This would possibly mean that Frosty spends quite a few games playing for Casey.  In this scenario, he'd have almost no trade value.

Maybe the injury gods will spoil us again, but you tend not to win flags by playing conservatively.

My other sentiment is that it's human nature to overvalue what you current possess.  I hope that our list management can overcome this bias and have made a balanced decision, based on a wide range of information.

We let frost go AND 3 draft picks for 2 picks back.

I'd say we rolled over and he had zero trade value.

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel

    THE GABBA DEMON...STRATION by George

    Melbourne took on Collingwood at the Gabba with its season at stake. The alternatives were a win and a place in the final eight would be on the cards or a defeat in which case the season would be as good as finished. From the very start, the Demons put on a demon...stration of their hunger and their willingness to put everything on the line to win when it mattered.   Right from the first bounce, Braydon Preuss knew that he had to nullify Brodie Grundy. Though his opponent looked tired, h
