Hard tag?? Hahahaha! I can definitely tell who knows their footy on this forum with just 1 post. He gave him a hard tag for 1 quarter and this is how you defend that tagging isn't is going out of fashion! So many dumb posts on here!

Opinion is opinion. If you don't like tagging, then fair enough. But don't give me examples that are false and misleading to others that are reading.

If you’re going to attack another poster for being dumb, a tip would be don’t then go and agree with the substance of the post in your own comment.

i didn’t say Kelly was tagged for the whole game, only that Collingwood used a hard tag. Kelly had 1 disposal to quarter time and Collingwood set up their win in the first quarter. It worked.

I’m also not saying Harmes should tag every week but there are certain circumstances where it makes sense. Just because something is going out of fashion doesn’t mean it should be shelved completely.

Anyway, agree to disagree.

OK. Viney does multiple roles, and it varied depending on who is in the centre with him. Here is one against St Kilda, without Oliver. It's Viney, Brayshaw and Petracca. This is set up for

This is closest I could find:        

Can't specifically say to much but my information comes from someone employed by the club. I don't post everything i'm told, but this will be announced in due course so i'm coming forth now.

So he hasn't signed yet for 4 or 5 years....

Interesting

Fingers crossed 🤞

I am sure I read earlier in this thread that he signed for 5 years, that poster must have been given some false info, who would of thought.

I'll put my hand up and say I got it wrong.

The same thing happened the first time I thought he had signed, he had been offered a contract and was expected to sign and I either took what I was told the wrong way or was misled somewhat. Either way, my fault, and I'll cop it on the chin.

Still waiting on the same posters that are harassing me for this mistake to say thanks for all the info that's been correct, but I get that's not the 'Demonland way'.

Good on ya for owning up mate.

Personally i love that you share your info and i more than understand info can not always be 100% accurate and situations change.

Regardless i support you posting any rumors you hear.

Chook in Perth gets the respect he deserves around here.

The others who throw mud and hope something eventually sticks.... not so much.

C'mon guys. Let's not turn this to another slinging match. 

Good on you for owning up @Lord Nev . Respect for putting your hand up. Though i hope it doesn't stop you from posting further for the future on here.

Agreed, was going to say respect for owning the post that appears to have been incorrect. Then I get named dropped into the ensuing garbage, seriously.

Jay Clark said on triple M that Viney hasn't given a confirmation to Melbourne whether he's staying or going, but the club are really confident he'll stay.

I think Geelong don't want to pay him more then we are offering, they just expect players to go to Geelong because they are Geelong. On Thursday night the cats played the oldest side in history in a final, the last team to play the oldest team in a final was hawthorn in 2018.

Love your work Wise, but I reckon you’re giving Nev a rough ride. Pretty credible poster imo, not sure why you’re so tough on him. Personally I like hearing info that’s well informed but not fully baked - it’s like getting a progress update and helps you understand the approach the club is taking even if the cards don’t always fall.

Anyway, as you were 😉

As long as Viney re-signs for 4 or 5 years, who cares when he signs above the line.

We're all nervous until he does that. 

Could be worse - some of the rubbish posted on Demons fb groups is out of this world!

You must have an awesome life if you feel the need to come on a footy forum and take personal shots at people you've never met.

A lot of poster on here would not have lasted five minutes in the Public bars of days gone by when footy rumour, bluff and bluster were all part of made inner suburban working life bearable for hard working men during miserable winters. Its all part of the game.

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    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
