2021 List and Contract Details



Recommended Posts

I can see us offloading Angus Brayshaw at the end of the season.  I think with Jordon and Sparrow plus the young blokes we drafted in 2020 will give the club confidence that if a first round pick was offered for Brayshaw you would take it.  I also think he will be looking for out, he isn't a wing and will want more time in the centre square.

LATEST LIST HERE: 3 June 2021 Updated for Turner and Declase, our mid season rookies contracted for 6 months.  They are replacements for our LTI players Tomlinson and Nietschke. Also updated

we can match salem if he is offered a contract by another club like you, he's a must-keep for mine

Updated for my Equal #1 favourite player:  Christian Salem. 5 year contract.  A demon until 2026.

IMO it looks as though Jones, Jetta, Baker and AVB will be on the chopping block or traded come seasons end. I'd imagine Chandler and Bradtke will be elevated to the Senior list. Joel Smith, Hore and Neitschke are rated well among the coaching panel, so they may get another chance.

Good idea.  'George' is a mod so he is able to edit and update the membership thread.

The chart is an embedded image so it would be difficult to update and keep the formatting.

An option might be for me to have open ended 'edit' facility for this thread but perhaps not technically possible and I copy the latest to the start of the thread.

Or the mods may find a way to copy and 'lock' the latest version to the start of the thread. 

I would like to also keep the updates in the body of the thread so the on-going dialogue makes sense, especially to infrequent readers.

 

@Demonlandwhat do you think the options might be?

Done.

See first post in the thread and let me know if that is what you wanted?

Just remind me to update whenever you have a new list.

Thanks Andy.  That is fine.  A good suggestion by @daisycutteras having the latest and the original chart shows the changes for the year at a glance

I will 'report' any post I make with a new chart.

I thought the same for a while but I feel like the way the players and coaches talk, Brayshaw won't be going anywhere.  I think they've asked him to play a specific role and he is doing it.  If he wasn't happy or the club wasn't happy there would have been opportunities at the end of last year.  The only way I see this changing is if they are forced to play TMac further up the ground (eg the wing) when Jacko comes back and Brayshaw loses his spot.  It's not inconceivable given TMac got many of his possessions in the back half last week.  Although I expect they would want to do this sooner than later if they do it at all.

The coach is as big a fan of Gus as he is of Melksham. Within the walls of the club, he is being praised for the selfless role he is playing, not to mention that he's a highly popular figure amongst his team mates.

That is great but when you look at our list he is one player that would have some trade value and we have others developing that could fill his current role in 2022.  We would be spending to keep a number of players the better you get the harder it is to manage salary cap, I don't think we will be able to keep him when he becomes a RFA.

Update for Alex Neal Bullen's two year contract extension.

image.png.f765db3f053949c3e27d7829561f0d5e.png

Given how well Hibberd is playing he would be good for another 1 year contract.  Goodwin is pretty confident Weideman will stay with the club.

Well done to the contracting team for signing up so many OOC players early in the season and for bringing forward other contract renewals.

Club website says:  "Joining the club as rookies, the duo will provide instant depth to Melbourne’s backline stocks, while also looking to impress at training and secure their position beyond 2021".

I have them as 6 month contracts.

Dr Drake 
Your prediction is based on your own assumption thst Angus is set yo play as a winger for the rest of his career.

He has embraced his move snd team role as a professional athlete should.

And  guess what if he happens to be on that Dias in September with a medal  around his neck your prediction will go out the window.

I would say that he is fulfilling a team role of extreme importance where necessary but this won't necessarily be a career long move as we have Rosman  and now Kye Declese in the wings.

So who else is trade bait you can move on in your Fantasy list management?

My assumption is based around a player that could have value at the trade table that we can cover with other players on our list.

We have locked away Petracca, Viney, Oliver, Harmes add in Jordon all till at least 2023 these are the guys keeping Brayshaw out of the centre square and you are right the club is still searching for another wing.

Will this happen no idea but if the club is looking to get early picks he is a player that can get this and as mentioned we have players that can cover his role.

So what other players or positions do you think we should look at trading Gus for Dr? A/B graders from other Club OR get say high 2nd rounder for  Gus or even a very low 1st if possible.?

You are looking for at least a top 12 pick and I would take this to the draft.

Thanks L H top effort, our List is now complete and I personally feel relieved as Declase and Turner now cover all our potential weaknesses .

Go Dee’s in J T we trust....!!!!

IMO, at the end of the season we'll be saying goodbye to Bradtke, Neitschke, Mitch Brown, Jones, Jetta, Baker, Vandenberg and one of Hore or Joel Smith.  Chandler joins Jordon as a promoted rookie.

That would leave us three senior list spots and two rookie list spots for the 2022 season. Gives us the flexibility to bring in someone via trade or free agency if need be, but otherwise we can just go to the draft.

Another small nitpick LH, but (unless I am missing something???) I make it 45 total - 37 senior, 5 'A', 1 'B', 2 MSR


Love your work and thanks!  👍

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
