Well I must say it will be a shame if Essendon are decimated by the loss of a number of players they would probably wish to keep. First Saad, now Daniher. Who next ? Let the dominoes fall and the

Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of ****wits. Worst club in the history of mankind. It’s beautiful.

If Fantasia, Daniher and Saad go, then with compensation picks and traded picks , you can guarantee that our first pick (23) has dropped further. This is exactly why we traded out of this draft t

It looks like the Lions offer to Daniher will get Ess an end of first round comp pick at best.  So Ess now make demands of Lions to improve offer to Daniher or they will match to force a trade. 

Its time someone stopped their stupid ambit claims that disrupt the whole trade period.  Would love to see Lions call their bluff and let them match and threaten to walk away.

God the herald sun love getting Hird's father involved. The bloke only played 4 games for the dons. Now he is trying to blame David Evans. Seriously your son stuffed up and trusted the wrong people. 

My issue is I don't care if what was taken was illegal or not it was morally disgraceful what they did to the players. 

 

Maybe he needs one of those 'I did nothing wrong' T-shirts which are currently in vogue in state politics?

"Money For Nothing"
 

I want my—I want my MTV [4x]

Now look at them yo-yos, that's the way you do it
You play your footy on the MCG
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and your chicks for free

Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

I think that doesn't help Daniher or hurt Essendon though. Lions are probably paying way under what essendon can afford, so if they put the offer in at whatever it is, and Essendon match.. To me that equals Essendon winning big time as they get Daniher for a long term deal for way less money. So although i agree with you that it would be good to let them match as a stuff you, in this case it won't work (it would be a gift).

If Jeremy cameron was a restricted free agent (hypothetically) on the other hand and say he wanted to go to geelong for 50-100k more than GWS was offereing and GWS said no we are matching. Then that is a situation where i can see it [censored] GWS up as they are meant to be super tight on salary space (although surely with williams gone this isn't so much the case, but worst comes to worse they pay cameron more than they wanted to and they may lose another player later :).

Chicks for free? Sure you didn't mean to post this in the Jesse Hogan thread? Although his "chick" cost him 8k.

From what I read the issue with the Brisb offer it is for 3 years with a low base (and a lot of add-ons which is not unreasonable because no-one knows how many games he will play).  But the AFL FA comp formula of secret herbs and spices doesn't consider the add-ons. 

I would think the AFL and the PA would step in and arbitrate before Daniher is forced to stay at Ess. 

Lions calling Ess bluff to walk away would be to force them to be reasonable and not make ridiculous ambit demands of destination clubs and waste everyone's time.

Essendon start negotiations by asking for Curnow.

Carlton agree but ask for some loose change late draft picks, as they really value having a mature body in the midfield...

 

I mean, really, Saad for Walsh, Curnow or McKay is like... well, it's like trying to trade a very handy mature player for a young potential superstar.

They can have Curnow, He can replace Daniher on their injury list.

What is the point of contracting players long term to a club they don't want to be at? Recipe for disaster, I'd reckon.

Yesterday, the last 3 teams left in the comp were all members of the cat family. Essendon, currently undergoing a crisis of culture, have decided to return to their true culture plus embrace that winning feline feeling, as the Essendon Cheetahs. Make Great Drugs Again.

I reckon he's talking about Dodoro, head list manager (and unliked by all clubs except for essendon)

He is teflon. Rutten goes before him. Dodoro is an 'Essendon person'. Expecting Hird to be in some role soon.

I hear Mitch McGovern might be part of the Saad deal...not quite Curnow, Walsh or Mackay but he's probably ok for them.

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    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

    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
