Brayshaw and Harmes should feel like there spot is threatend. We need outside mids and neither Harmes or Brayshaw have strengths that are better than Oliver, Viney or Tracs strengths.

Harmes - HFF
Brayshaw - Trade

Good call @Lord Nev. I heard 4 years, you heard 5. Your source was correct. Hats off to you and good result for the club as he is definitely a heart and soul player.  Now we need to balance the m

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Jack's value is once again acknowledged and rewarded. A loyal clubman of the highest integrity (and a pocket dynamo/wrecking ball on field)... Eat it Jack-D

you have no idea lmao so many non classy players win flags, like you gotta have those types every side does but having 22 lachie whitfields (classiest player i can think of) isnt going to wi

As a 60-year supporter of the club, regardless of 'ultimate' (IS it, though?) success, I can't help but have special regard for players applying similar, unshakeable loyalty - with the bonus of a healthy income! - in the relatively small number of years that is their playing life. So I'm in the "Great news!" camp.

36 goals in 135 games; that's something to work on though...

It's weird... Would have been so disappointed if he left, but I feel like we need to make bit changes to our midfield for balance and for me he is the most one dimensional mid we have 

Agree..five years is 2 years too long given his form. Viney is likely to be a 5-10 ranked player at best.

Hope he proves me wrong but I just can't see much upside and his present best is okay without being much more.

All the big guns are locked in .   Despite not making the finals it looks as if they want to be at Melbourne.  Lets hope there is some unfinished business to attend to.

  • Demonland changed the title to Viney Signs Until 2025

On record to say that 5 years is one too many. But clearly we were very keen to keep him so had to do what we had to do to make it happen.

In a time of reduced lists five years should be reserved for the absolute elite. It's the equivalent of an 2018 seven year deal.

I hope the money in the fourth and fifth years is highly conditional.

Simply have to sign JV up for a further 4 years through to end 2024. 

He has the heart of a lion. You just can’t replace players like Viney. 

2016 B&F winner.
2017 runner up in B&F.
Had foot issues which impacted his 2018.
3rd B&F in 2019
3rd B&F in 2020  Leadership award in 2020.

Great news. Jack is a Demon for life. For all the reasons that I outlined.

Viney Limited just check his seasons stats

Jones Finished

Nev almost the same

Max excellent player. Mate heart and soul IS NOT going to deliver a flag, Classy players will

Viney signing reeks of yet another "Panic" by our Footy admin that saw us do the same thing to sign Goody for an eternity!

No wonder we are so bloody average 

Viney 5 years FMD

Dangerfield- still waiting for a flag. LOL.

1 possibly 2 year deal with triggers. Bookmark this for same time next year and see if I'm mistaken!

So you are saying this time next year we will all be wanting Jack to leave PF?

Only your opinion but I admit we have to sort out his style of play and our mids link with and take proper advantage of Maxy's ruck work.

Need new midfield coach to bring fresh approach.

Going by some of the logic being thrown around here of late, the signing of Viney clearly points to Brayshaw being traded.

Yep coz he is a Rugby player nothing more or less, Crazy decision for a limited player!

Or he'd go okay in the ring too. Famechon, Rose, Viney. Not sure of the weight (bantam/welter etc) but I'd back him to last the distance. And that's what we've gone for.

It's not logic it's just lazy approach 

No mid needs to go to from Melb We just need better coaches with our players to utilise our talents .

Don’t be ridiculous, l agree 5 years is to much, but you don’t offer a 1 year deal to a player that just finished 3rd in the b&f

Not sure of Viney's weight but if he was around 79 kgs he would be light heavyweight class

Clearly he does what the Coaches want and we don't see it DJ 

We need a 25% lift from Jack Gus and Harmesy and Swallow given some extra opportunities to blend in fir our midfield to reach its capacity and flag potential ability.

Great news. The most preferred outcome was to have him sign. In saying that it feels one year too long and if five was the difference between staying and going I would have rolled the dice and stood firm on 4. I cant see with the way he plays and his prior foot issues him being valuable in year 5.

"Melbourne confirms Jack Viney will be a Demon until at least the end of 2025. Geelong have known for a couple of weeks he would stay. Goodwin relationship a huge factor."

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
