Who?? Does this guy play for the Dees?

The winger you have when you dont have a winger.

Hope he recovers and has a great pre-season Love to see him play next year.

Considering the club went out to trade in another best 22 wingers doesn’t fill me with confidence about how they rate his chances of recovery. 

I hope I’m wrong for Kade’s sake.

i can't believe he has a 3 year contract. Did we do any due diligence, or did we just stick a contract under his nose? Surely the fact that GC17 basically threw him at us should have been a massive red flag.

I would love nothing more than to see him fit and well and playing good football next year, but I can't see it happening. A settlement prior to the draft would be a good result for all parties.

Ridiculous isn’t it. 

3 years to someone with Concussion history 

Last Summer was very loose. We paid for it Big Time

Anything from GC is a red flag!  May another and he was a captain.

I think the decision will be made prior to the mid year draft. Wonder if it will be the same for AVB and J Smith.

No way can a club carry three very long term injuries. The flip side is that it denies three VFL players a chance at the big time.

This is one of those 'high risk, high reward' trades that some people complain we never do.

 

If it comes off, we've gained a gun player as the steak knives in the May trade.

If it doesn't, people criticise the risky trade and bemoan us not taking a safer route.

I really liked him in his first couple of seasons but looked a mile off that in the games he played this year. Lacked the intensity to compete.

Still hope he can return to his early form and become a handy half back or wingman which we need but realistically it is unlikely.

I reckon he plays his best footy across half back. The small times that he played wing this year he just looked completely lost. With Hibbered cooked, I would like to see him go back to half back and utilise his kicking skills.

dazzle - presumably you watched him in previous seasons, which I didn't.

As a half back is he accountable, as well as being a good kick?

when he debuted for gc17 he looked like an absolute gun in the making

unfortunately concussions have absolutely robbed him of not just his development but seemingly his drive

it's extremely disappointing that he doesn't seem to be recovering as we expected him to do, and there's little doubt his career is in trouble; here's hoping he's able to recover

Plays the quarter back role perfectly fine.. ability to defend first but also peel off to provide run and his kicking skill to am advantage.

Hope that was essentially one year off allows him, as it did with Nev, to make a full recovery and return to his best.

This is the reason i clicked onto this thread, im hoping someone who ACTUALLY KNOWS something can give us an insight....

how severe are the symptoms? Do we have any time frame? was he doing any contact work towards the end of the year or was he just working on fitness or nothing at all? is that bad that he has been written off? 

Look at paddy mccartins case, this is no joke so people questioning his drive and commitment with out knowing are idiotic.

As for calling him stake knives and a waste.... do you remember when he actually nominated this club? For me it was finally a time where we where beginning to become some what of a destination club, also people that know more about him know he is a very talented player so 300k a year really isnt surprising....

I don't think anyone is questioning his talent, more his ability to get on the park. It's fairly common knowledge Gold Coast wanted him off the list and that we were happy to take him on, possibly given how Brayshaw came out the other side of his concussion issues. 

There was an article on the MFC site recently saying he intended doing a full preseason, so he may be back to full fitness. Whether or not he plays again is another thing, but I'm pretty sure everyone wishes him well and to be back on the park.

GC didn't offer him a contract, I wouldn't say GC rejects nominating us makes us a destination club.

There are 3 ways you can pay overs for an existing afl player

1) give away too many or to valuable draft picks

2) pay the player too highly and jeopardise your salary cap

3) offer a longer contract to the player

I think it is clever list management to get players in without breaching 1 & 2 and just give them an extra year on their contract. You basically give away nothing and potentially bring in a talent. If it doesn’t work out so be it but there is the real chance of bringing in talent for nothing.

KK could still well work out. Might even be in his 3rd year...

    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

    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
