Current list of delistings and retirements above. So far only two who would potentially interest me, pending on how we go in the trade period.

Shaun McKernan as ruck insurance for a year if we trade out Preuss. Probably a bit early to only have Jackson & Bradtke as ruck depth should Gawn go down, so McKernan could be of some cheap value here.

Marley Williams as a small defender. With Jetta seemingly on his last legs and the jury still out on Lockhart and Chandler as small defenders, I'm hoping we can find someone in the trade period. We missed out on Saad, but maybe we can get Jordan Clark from Geelong or Lachie Ash from GWS in a Preuss trade? If not, then Marley Williams could be worth a look. Provides run and is a clean kick of the footy. Not sure how he measures on the no d-heads policy, but sometimes you just need to take the best available.

Chandler laid 9 tackles in his one AFL outing as a small forward - that's a seasons worth for Melksham and Fritsch combined.

No point now that Hogan’s gone...

Lockhart, because I can't pronounce the other blokes name.

Nah to both especially McKernan makes Oscar look like a star.

Not sure whether we will entertain a Delisted Free Agent pick. None so far really standout.  Brandon Matera? Mason Wood? Marley Williams? Hardly showed the intensity in their games to warrant another chance despite their talent. 

Dees might use 18,19,28 and 50 in the Draft and then add a further rookie pick 10.  (get list to 44).

Reckon if Andrew Phillips gets delisted we'll pick him up, but that could be about it.

Go to the draft with Picks 18, 19 and 28 and 1 live pick in the rookie draft. Though if we can package two of our first three National Picks together for a higher pick then we'll do that and take two rookies instead.

cedric cox requested a trade to WA and received no interest, wouldnt mind him for a year or two off HB even if he still pursues a move west after that.

ronke is still OOC too at the swans and could be an alternative small forward option for 1 yr see what he's got

eggmolese-smith is also ooc still at richmond and has done some nice things off hb there but its a hard side to crack, i guess he'd have his eye on houlis spot from next yr on

Surely Mason Wood gets another go somewhere.

I think Lewis Jetta would be a good fit for us. 

Unless he sees his life in Melbourne after footy I wouldn't have Lewis Jetta for what is probably just 1 year.

Mason Wood might be the worst footballer in the AFL. If another club picks him up they should fold.

The MFC is not responsible for where Lewis Jetta sees his life after footy. He fits our needs and, if he were to join, we would pay him for his services.

So are you offering him a 2 year deal on good enough money to relocate his family?  Because I doubt he's coming for 1 year on minimum chips.

That would be in the negotiation. He is clearly on the edge at WCE, who are yet to offer a contract, and he would likely have to move to get a regular game of AFL.

My point is it is up to Jetta to consider if he wants to relocate, not the MFC. We need to look after ourselves. However, in saying that, we would be potentially attractive in that he would be a good fit for us and he has family playing at the club.

Billy Gowers would come close.

Wood has some talent. Can recall him kicking 4 goals against Sydney including the winning goal a couple of years back at the SCG, and he was too much for us to handle in a game against North in mid 2017 at the MCG (not the Hobart debacle that same year)

He may be the worst player in the league but he's not the least talented if that makes sense?

Really tough call but I'd probably just go Gowers over Wood because he has this local footy legend style about him I find endearing. Wood looks like he can run, jump, mark, kick and he showed a lot of promise up until Sydney offered him a big deal and from about that moment on he's lost the ability to do anything.

Definitely would consider Pittard as a depth option. Really baffled he was among those let go.

Pittard is a bigger turnover merchant then Tmac, Tmac turns it over because he is trying  to do the impossible, pittard turns it over because he can't kick

Playing SFL is Marley.

People are muffed by the expectations of Petty for us (from many in D/L ) either in defence or attack saying pretty negative things about him!

But I am certainly extraordinarily and completely amazed by one or two D/L ers with a desire to recruit Marley Williams.

Not only dies that make it his third Club he butchers  the ball Even more than any one on our list but is rather error prone.

I would compare him even unfavourably with Josh Wagner!!!

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    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 19

    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

    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
