WOW!  Mahoney misses out on CEO job (to Pert) and now is demoted by Pert to a far lesser job to report to his previous underling (Richardson).  That would be brutal by Pert.  If that happens it smacks more of politics at the top than sensible organisation re-structure.

If the Richo reports to Green (or any individual board member) we have the reporting and accountability all wrong.  I would be very worried by Green's appt to the Board if his role becomes managerial. 

Wait and see what the actual info is I guess. 'Reporting to' can be different to 'managed by' though. It could just be that Green is the conduit between Mahoney and the board? Nothing's official yet anyways.

Update:  I spoke to my contact again this morning and he has re-affirmed what i've already shared  Issac Smith will join the Dees on a 3 year deal - said announcement coming, not sure of

I'll put my balls on the line for ya mate. A few things have already happened, but got some whispers (of varying degrees of source quality) to tide you over. (Need the distraction from the Grand Final

My mail for those interested.    1. Ben brown is likely to be a dee, money isn’t an issue with this deal it’s agreed in principal. We’ve made our pitch now Ben brown is taking some time to cons

I just posted this in another thread but Mitch Cleary said something similar during an AFL Exchange podcast yesterday: Richardson getting a larger role including head of football and head of coaching sort of stuff, Mahoney getting a different role involving list management.

It may well be that a decision has been made in the last day or two (explaining why it's now leaking out) and a formal announcement may be imminent?

Ah cool. Didn’t see that post. 
thanks for the info.

any word on some of our uncontracted players who arent in the clear trade or delist bucket?  Specifically Hunt, bedford, Jordan, Neitschke, Chandler or M.Brown.?

Obviously list sizes will play a part but given re-signings Im surprised Hunt hasnt been raised anywhere - either as trade or re-sign.

Thank you DrEvil for the update which all sounds very Credible and mostly achievable.

While I can respect Goody's knowledge of Brodie Smith haven't we got a defender ( albeit to mind opposition smalls and with run and carry) in Lockhart plus Riv on the other HB flank to Hibbo with Salo hopefully up forward flank way still available.

A third Or fourth rounder Might get a good Draft prospect at say 50/55 or a Wantawsy  speedster from Somewhere or A Tom Phillips or even a Jarrad Polec with a combined 3 and 4 rounder!!

Or am I being a bit nit picky not trusting Goody's  judgement ??

Lots of clubs are very frustrated as not knowing list sizes is making things very difficult. 
Vanders being shopped around 

And our Hawks 2nd rounder at 23 just got pushed out to 25 with FA compo. Possibly 26 if Jezza to Cats compo comes through. And that's before academy or f/s bid matching. It will be 30-35 in the blink of an eye. 

If possible, I'd look to trade it in a  bigger package to move up into single digit number at draft time.

Our 2020 2nd, Preuss, Tmac and future 2nd or 3rd for GWS pick 9?

I'd be absolutely staggered if that's the case and Mahoney wasn't just removed totally. not doubting your intel but it sounds like if that were the case, Alan RIchardson would be the GM of footy, and Mahoney would be in a new undefined role. 

Personally i don't mind it but i can't see Mahoney being kept on, if not in his current position.

Yeah, the person who told me about it said they'd be pretty surprised if Mahoney didn't start looking around if the rumoured changes happen.

My concern with Richo as head of footy is list management during his time at St Kilda was very ordinary from the outside looking in.

He might he good at the rest of it, I've no real way of knowing.

Not sure if Richo will be involved with the list management though. I think everything is being redefined a fair bit. Mahoney could still have a big hand in trades etc IMO. I think it's going to be more about managing the coaches, communication, effectiveness of the footy department. I'm guessing though.

    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. That stat

    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
