Demonland has its share of posters who appear to be list experts after the fact. I think it's time for people to show their skills beforehand. I'd like people to predict who will no longer be on our list at this time in 2022. In effect, who' going to retire, be traded, take  free agency option or be delisted. Here's your chance to show the rest of us your predictive skills. I'm not asking for justification, nor am I seeking a wish list of who you might like to see moved on. Here's my prediction of who won't be on our list as at January 2022:

  • Nathan Jones (ret)
  • Neville Jetta (ret)
  • Michael Hibberd (ret)
  • Kade Chandler (delisted)
  • Austin Bradtke (delisted)
  • Aaron Nietschke (delisted)
  • Jayden Hunt (traded at his request)
  • Oskar Baker (traded)
  • Mitch Brown (ret/delisted)

I understand this thread is a future source of reference for the hindsight police, but I’m not writing off players before the season has even begun. Especially the younger ones that should be encouraged.

That's exactly what it's for. (And a bit of fun, to boot.)

I’m not going to speculate on trades of contracted players, there’s too many variables. Who’s going to want T Mc, Gus or Hunt?

I do think Jones, Jetta, Hibberd, Vanders and Mitch Brown all retire.

If that’s the case we might have to keep a majority of the younger guys. 

Smith, Lockhart, Hore, Baker, Bedford, Chandler, ANB, Nietschke, Bradtke, Jordon all on one year deals.

I’ll say Smith, Lockhart, Hore, Chandler, ANB, Nietschke, Bradtke stay on. Baker, Bedford, Jordon don’t.

@La Dee-vina Comedia I agree with your list, however I don't believe Baker finds a new home and am doubtful Hunt does either.

Also think we are in serious danger of losing Clayton should we not become serious finals contenders this year. For everyone's sake, I hope this is the year where it clicks

I can't understand the hatred towards Baker he looked good at the end of the year.

Not sure how anyone could have any real reasonings or predictions on delisting or players to be moved on when the 2021 season is still to play out....

Two poster reckon AVB will be delisted?

tell em they’re dreamin!

Think there is 2-3 blokes that go past him in 2021, the longer quarters will go against him and he doesn't win enough ball

You can't afford to have someone in your starting 22 who is purely there to be physical and give away free kicks

doesnt push ahead of Oliver/Viney/Brayshaw/Harmes/Trac in our starting side and you'd think sparrow/jordon will get opportunities ahead of him too and jones to get to 300. doesn't really do enough anywhere else on the ground to justify selection when we are already heavy on bullocking tacklers who can't kick

Very close I would think though...

I have a hope (not a great one) that we can get another year (2022) out of Hibberd

Brayshaw is a conundrum

TMac will hopefully be traded (the only reason he wont be traded is because he has another bad year or he pushes out one of the other talls which would be another problem in itself)

Baker and Hunt.. no real feel but more likely Hunt goes (did we give him 2 years... not sure why)

On the delists... we haven't really seen much of any of them and therefore seems harsh but that's AFL level footy

Ok, I'm here :)

Nathan Jones (Ret): I think this is almost a guarantee.
Toby Bedford (Delisted): He's had his time to earn a spot and hasn't taken it.
T.McDonald (Delist or trade): Going by how hard we tried to trade him I think he will be gone. Needs to kick 35-40 goals to keep his spot on the list. 
J.Jordan (Delist): Too slow.
S.Goodwin: Sacked before round 8. 
N.Jetta (trade): Trade for a late pick. 
A.Bradtke (Delist)
Baker: Staying on. We're one of the slowest teams in the comp. You don't trade your quickest players when you're as slow as us. Neale-Bullen (traded to a SA team)
Neitschke (Delist and rookied)

Count yourselves lucky
Hore, Hibberd, Vandenberg, Neal-Bullen to stay on for one more.

why would we delist neitschke and re-rookie again? he can just remain as a rookie for another 2 years now that he's on that list.

also that means ur confident in jsmith and mbrown getting new deals im intrigued please tell us more xx

And yeah correction. Mitch Brown (delisted).

You do realise that T-mac had interest in the last trade period? 

Also,  I said Bedford and Jordan were to be delisted so I don't know what you were looking at.

So that's it from the self- proclaimed great sooth-sayer?

  • Jones to retire - oh boy wowee!
  • TMac to be traded - yeah great revelation!
  • Jetta traded - or will that be retired
  • Bedford a 2 gamer to be delisted
  • Jordon and Bradtke who haven't played a game to be delisted
  • M.Brown a fringe depth rookie to be delisted
  • Goodwin to be sacked R8

Way to go out on a limb with some radical unthought of predictions!

This poster has claimed that he is a list management expert who can see things that others cannot see.  I am simply calling him on his claim.

    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

    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
