2021 List and Contract Details

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.

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.

so the question is are Declase and Turner 6month or 18month deals

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.

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 the Free Agency status of affected players.

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 .

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!  ?

fair to say jsmith wasnt the resigning i was expecting at all let alone 4 weeks before the end of the season especially as he was one of the last to get a deal last season when we were tossing up he or OMac. must be playing for a packet of chips/part of his dads compo. particularly with the versatile declase and developing tall turner on board now but oh well fair play to him must be doing something right

As the club is in list management mode, I wouldn't be surprised to see a flurry of contract renewals in the next month or so.

Hopefully, some of the 2022 OOC players sign early extensions especially Jackson and Petty.

    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

    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.

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives.

In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
