Aint it a thing of beauty, been a Toffee since 1976

You’re a chance. The Van Djik injury has blown the title race wide open. Its anyone’s so why not Everton.

Ancelotti is an excellent manager, strong midfield and Calvert-lewin looks primed. My only concern is defensively. Very dodgy keeper.

Eagles midfield was talked up as close to perfect with the inclusion of Kelly for 2020.

Things don't always end up as the media predicts.

On paper they will look formidable with Hawkins and Cameron but footy isn't played on paper. He'd want to play with greater urgency than he did this season for them to be formidable 

A preseason is a long time in footy.

No guarantees Hawkins, Selwood & Danger all come back as the players they've been this season.

The edge is closer than you think.

It’s good to see a STRUGGLING club like Geelong can land a gun forward to bolster their lineup. 
 

That’s what happens when u play finals consistently and have a good culture and head coach. 
 

Then there’s us.........................FFS Goodwin and co better get their [censored] together next season otherwise we are screwed AGAIN. 

Yep.

They get Cameron, we get Brown.

Its like we're one of the dogs under the table getting scraps.

2021 better be an outstanding year for us.

Something needs to change. You’ve got a team playing in the grand final with this seasons Coleman medalist... about to bring in a former Coleman medalist without even needing to use a draft pick. 

Meanwhile we pay two first round picks for Jake Lever.

That is what it is all about 100%
 

We, the MFC play the game hard or become nothing more than a Feeder Club

This system of Free Agency will not go away. It’s what the players want. 
 

The MFC have to become attractive 

Goodwin and the FD need to get themselves sorted, now.

Agree, rember the talk about the Hawks with Mitchell, O'Meara into their midfield. Buddy and Tippett at Sydney.

The Eagles got Kelly, but gave up a hell of a lot for him, which may hirt in a few years

The comp is is comprised with all sorts of things the draw, FA is favouring the bigger successful no doubt but look at the lions no one wanted to go a few years ago even the mfc prior to Roos era.. you need to find good people off the field & tigers are an example what can happen...

Not even sure we will get Brown or Smith.

One of the issues when we r so inconsistent on the field is that we are NOT a destination club and its been that way for a long time. I cant see it changing soon either unfortunately which will also affect our current player movements.

 

Good players want to go to good clubs with good culture, front office and coaching group.

I admire the bravery of Jeremy Cameron to choose to go to a team playing off in this weeks grand final.

We haven't seen this sort of bravery since Tom Lynch went to Richmond and Franklin went to Sydney.

As an individual, who can blame him for wanting the best opportunities and to be back home, near your work.  How many of us wouldn’t do the same?
As a competition, which it is now not, it is a poor look and result.

Go hard for Ratugolea and Clark, who aren’t in their best 22 and Rat just got further away. Use Preuss in the deal to a minor extent and maybe Tom and to a lesser  extent Oscar become interesting to the Giants.

A big YES on the Clark call, not fussed about Ratugolea.

Clark has future top wingmen written all over him.

Clark as in Jordan Clark at the Cats? Are there any report he wants out or is up for trade? He's a first round pick who's only 1-2 years into his career! Hard midfield to break into down there at Geelong....

Yes, that's the one.

Geelong are linked to Smith (Hawks), Crouch, had a sniff around Viney.  A hard midfield to break in to doesn't get any easier for some of these kids if Geelong continue to look at topping up.  At some stage younger players want to play in the seniors, so while he's a little way down the order at Geelong, it's also $5000 a game in match payments that he is missing out on, could be an extra $100k a year on top of an annual contract, on top of playing more senior games.

The question has to be asked, and clubs like Geelong need to understand that there are consequences for a list management strategy that they have implemented.

Jeez Clark would be a good get. He was brilliant at underage level as a running halfback flanker for WA. Good turn of pace, decent agility, good skills by hand and foot, aggressive at ball in the air and ground level. He could definitely be a wingman at AFL level if his fitness is up to scratch. Don't think we've got the right currency to get him, but you never know!

As for Cameron, he's off to Cats and probably not much to discuss in relation to him.

Serious question, can someone explain how is the competition's fairness undermined by free agency?  Every team has to follow a salary cap doesnt it? Its not as if some clubs have extra dollars to spend, its about effectively managing the resources that you have?

If a player wants to take less money to go to a 'destination club' surely thats the result of the club having other positives to offer other than money.  Isn't that a reward for being good financially, on field etc? Seems more fair than arbitrary zones on a map or academies from which recruit players etc.

geelong have no problems with young players leaving - for multiple reasons. A) they back in their recruiters to steal some stars with late picks, b) theyll get first rounders/top picks in return to reinvest in trades (like gws of recent years but better) and C) theyll just bring back former falcons in two years time when they breakthrough elsewhere as theyve been doing.

Getting Clark across with Sav would be huge, can play off a HBF just as well as he goes on a wing, given hibbos age itd be a great deal

The salary cap is a rort.  I know Geelong pay outside of it, and I'm sure other clubs are in the same boat.  Sadly, there will never be a perfect system.

Salary cap ?  What a joke.  I’d like to see the Cats books. 

The joke is as old as the hills. What you want to see about the Cats is not in their books, that are sterile and clean. What occurs under the table will never be found and disappears like clockwork, keeping all faces smiling.

People were saying Lynch coming in would upset the Tigers. Now they wouldn’t be in a GF without him imo

this signing is massive for the Cats and will keep them in finals for years. Cameron played poor this year as he and others knew they were leaving

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
