It's all Jesse Hogan's fault. Or maybe Jack Watts.

If they were still on the list, they'd continue to be the focus of this nonsense freeing us up to debate more important things like whether Petracca needs to lose weight.

Trac is still contracted until 2022. Even if he unexpectedly requests a trade next year i expect Josh Mahoney and co to take a leaf out of the Doggies book and hold him to his contract.

If he did request a trade and we reluctantly had to do a deal what would it take? De Goey plus a first rounder??? ?

If he improved even 1% on his 2020 output and was contracted for a further year we'd genuinely request 3x top ten picks. Might go close to getting it too.

Yes your  right there l was lead to believe at the time.  Someone very close to me introduced me to his brother Julian who manages a few players at different clubs and one of them is at Melbourne. at the time l just assumed the way he was talking that he managed him.  That is  all l can say now.

Yep l do worry if we are good enough to hold onto our best players. Can we afford to keep them ? Time will tell. 

 

His brother Julian petracca is Jake  lever’s manager and he also is Jayden shorts manager

My view is that the club will renew Christians'  contract mid season so the doubters will have another 4 years of agony wondering

Did I say he had committed to the pies did I? Can you actually show this direct quote? You're the only [censored] that mentioned anything remotely of Petracca leaving. Stop trying to put words in my mouth.

Go back and actually read what I was replying to. It actually had nothing to do with Petracca at all but more so that Collingwood will continue to bring in players regardless of what went on during the trade period.

You embarrassed yourself over the trade period when you threw several darts but didn't land any and now you're embarrassing yourself with this post.

Wtf are u smoking matey? I threw zero darts, merely mentioned small bits with a major caveat attached. Only thing I said was def was BBB and he was. Didn’t say CP was pies committed? Then WHY do the silly post at all u silly bugger. Don’t make me go back and quote you. The entire post was moronic so maybe move on haha

How could the Pies possibly afford him?

They just got rid of two very good players because of cap issues.

Petracca wouldn’t leave for less than 750k per year

You're weird unit Nudge. You quoted a post from 2 months ago that I actually forgot it existed..

IMO Pies just offloaded a whole heap of $. Not due to clearing space. Actually due to being well over the cap hence the bargain trade deals for Treloar Stephenson and Phillips. No doubt they’ll be into Petracca. I think Petracca is built for finals footy and if we don’t start making them then he’s a risk to leave. But are Collingwood in a better position? I don’t think so. Not unless they end up absolutely nailing the 2020 draft.

Play finals at the very least otherwise we risk losing him. We can’t expect an A-grader like Trac to rang around waiting for us to get our act together when he would grace any team in the league.

Not much point worrying about it in pre-season though. Let’s see how the season pans out before fretting about his contract.

Personally think its more then that. I don't think making finals is an acceptable level. If we make it and bow out first week then the risk of losing players is still high.

We've got the list to be top 4. It's all up to players and coaching staff to make that happen.

I agree. Finals may not be enough. 

I guess we all have extra reason to hope that the pies flop this year.

   Yes l agree.  However IMO Petrac even Oliver would have to play in a consistently high level as expected for us to have a better       chance of playing finals and finishing at least top 4 . 

  They are the A graders and if we cannot make finals with both of them  sound then l would hate to think  Bda.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi
