Demons Re-Sign Corey Wagner?

Recommended Posts

Melbourne

Restricted free agents: Nil
Unrestricted free agents: Nil

State of play: The Demons haven't announced it but Corey Wagner has re-signed for another year, in a bid to prove he can be a long-term player at the club. The ex-Roo and pre-season supplemental selection period signee made 11 senior appearances in his first season in red and blue. Co-captain Nathan Jones was also a free agent and was locked away on a new one-year contract last week. As for potential incomings, the link between Melbourne and Giants unrestricted free agent Adam Tomlinson has strengthened in recent weeks to the point industry sources believe he is certain to become a Demon. - Marc McGowan

I wonder why the club has chosen to re-sign players but not announce it yet??? I know that Alex Neal-Bullen has signed a two year deal but it has not yet been announced by the club. I wonder why?

Yeah, seems weird, maybe saving it for either the Bluey or to cushion the blow when they announce players leaving?

Or avoiding fan outrage on social media.

He is a rookie no issue with him keeping that spot for another year.  His brother needs to be off the senior list though

I reckon Corey is worth another look for sure.  he is ~21yo and runs all day. has plenty of mongrel in him too

suspect his older brother might be in trouble though.  he has not come on in the past 2 years

I don't mind Corey and I think in a performing side he would be similar in terms of usefulness to Hannan last year. As for Josh Wagner, I have him firmly in my delist box.

Corey is a goer and handy depth.

Won't be much more than that as he lacks the quick reaction time that the really good players have.

Just that hair off...

Im a fan of Nibbler as my sig suggests, but i am positive his re-signing wont be much of a blow-cushioning if one of our better players leave.

It's hard to really judge these signings until after the trade period where you look and who came and went and how we are placed for depth but it is what it is I guess. I don't think he has the skills or decision making to be a regular but I guess his speed/endurance is decent and he did a couple of good things towards the end of the year.

This is the massive signing we will announce after we have shafted ourselves during the trade period!

Another VFL level player continues for the not-so-mighty Demons. The team should be relegated to the VFL. I doubt that they’d beat many teams there! Maybe Frankston.

A bit harsh. He's a depth player that is cheap. If we can get all of Langdon, Tomlinson and Elliott watch us rise up the ladder.

If they want 2 keep him y don't they demote 2 rookie & free up another spot. If Wagner improves then promote him if he doesn't delist  We hang onto ayers for 2 long. JKH 7 years for 39 games as an example.

The following players are VFL level or below VFL level:

Jay Kennedy-Harris

Both Wagners

Baker

Bedford

Bradtke

Chandler

Jordon

Keilty

Kolodjashnij

Nietschke

Preuss

Sparrow

Spargo

Stretch

Walker

Sparrow

The MFC will not win a premiership until it recruits and develops elite players like those of Richmond, Geelong, Collingwood, West Coast. We have chosen poorly in the past year and developed some potential elite players poorly. Max Gawn was just about our only elite player this year based on performance. The catastrophic drop to the bottom of the ladder had a reason. We just don’t have the cattle.

Laughable post. Your forum name clearly is appropriate.

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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. That should never have happ

    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
