I Hope Please GIF

I'm hearing he's keen to stay. Settled in really well with the group.

Both WA clubs have sounded him out, but it's believed he will stay.

Smart move to not extend at this stage

Ok, so getting back to footy... This is second hand info, passed onto me by someone who has spoken to family of players. Harmes has been chased by North this trade period. Roosy has been mak

For those interested I am hearing that we’d be very keen to have a chat to Adam treloar. If the pies are willing to pay a decent chunk of his salary we’d see him as a fit on the opposite wing to Langd

“Flighty”. That’s a huge  call Nev!! In fact that’s a put down of a kid who has looked anything but !!!!

That requires a sauce to show your credibility 

I've said many times where I get most of my info.

You and your mates can't keep trying to question my credibility if you wish, not my problem.

There could be many reasons why he hasn't agreed to an extension yet. Only one being he is contemplating going home. I hope and pray that's not one of them.

You need to think things through a little more Nev. You are dismissive in saying it is "not your problem" , yet it was your choice to lay an unnecessary and unsupported slur on a young man.

If you're so sure about your info, why are you so defensive? You don't have to prove anything to anyone on the forums, or even post it really.

Uncle BBO I took that to mean he is flighty about whether he is going to stay or go. I don't think that's a slur if that is what was meant. I choose to hear what I want to hear and in this case I'm listening to Pennant St Dee and look forward to hearing about him signing an extension sooner than later. I know some might find that somewhat ironic given I mentioned someone else's observation that he hasn't signed an extension yet. BB won't let him go now anyway.

my mfcss says that until such a time that any player signs on the dotted line they're inevitably leaving and only after they sign an extension with us will they break down with a long-term crippling injury

we'll all be rooned, said hanrahan...

not sure whether to reply to this with a laughter or crying emoji

"Slur"...? Righto.

One day if you want to talk footy instead of always trying to have cracks at me; let me know.

Gross incompetence. Why hasn’t Ned Guy been sacked already?

I dont think those deals are just Neds doing. I think Eddie, Bucks etc are all in on the decisions.

If he gets the flick imo he will be made the scape goat.

Eddie and bucks should be shown the door to if Ned gets the flick.

It's not a lock. 'Flighty' was the word I heard that described where he's at. Not saying he's gone of course, but it's not totally safe.

I hope your info is wrong.

We ought to be livid at the club if Jackson wants to go home. Develop him for 2 years so West Coast can reap the benefits.

There were plenty of great VIC prospects available to us such as Serong, Young, Day etc... who were not flight risks.

I think the value gain we realised this trade period from recruiting then trading Preuss, the great deal we got for Hogan, and general trade craft recently, indicates if Luke decides to head West, then we’ll have a well developed strategy to ensure we improve our team in the process.

Why, that is a risk you take when drafting top end talent from other states.  You need to hope your program can keep them.  There would be no question the WCE would be chasing him as a replacement for Nic Nat.

The info wasn't that he was going, personally I think he's more likely to stay, it was more that it's not a lock just yet. The thing in our favour is that Yze is a fantastic communicator and relates really well to players from what I've heard, he's already working with a couple of them specifically, so I think his influence could make a big difference to our group.

And if we can perform consistently as a team for once in many many seasons that will help to. I cant remember a more important or critical season for our club.

No we need to start heading to the top with all these kids, this one is, if not the most important years in the clubs history.

No more #$&@ just get out there and win, win, win, we may stumble at times all clubs do, but 2021 is the time, we come back from all the hell over the last 56 years!

End of story from Ricky Nixon as he sums up the past coupla weeks -

Well done Western Bulldogs not only the big winners yesterday but also traded in an honest respectful manner unlike others .:..big flag chance 

Whilst everyone will bag Collingwood let’s let the ladder decide who’s right & wrong next season 

Geelong ridiculous deal which could haunt them for a long time 

Essendon tick
Melbourne tick tick 
Carlton tick 
Nth Melb tick 
Bris tick tick 
Port tick 
Adelaide tick 
StK tick & 1/2 

WCE Freo GCS GWS Syd backed their lists hence time will tell

Jackson has been at the club less than a year, with most of the season spent on the road in the hub. Let’s give him a chance to settle into some normality of life in Melbourne (fingers crossed), playing at the MCG week in week out, hopefully for a team playing finals. I’m almost certain he will extend if those things are true.

Jackson isn't going anywhere in the short term. like Jesse he'll get chased every single off season by both W.A clubs but so will Rivers and Kozzie. any half decent interstate player is going to deal with that most of their career. 

Everything i've heard about LJ is he's incredibly happy at the club, excited for the future and the club thinks we've got ourselves an incredible talent. 

I personally think LJ's first 4-5 years are going to be mostly flashes of brilliance with a gradual build in strength, fitness and consistency before absolutely exploding onto the scene and ripping a season apart. gotta keep expectations in check for the young man but he does look the goods

    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
