Jay Clark reporting that Oliver has re-signed.  No idea of the details but this is huge news for us and a big statement to the team!  I was a bit worried he was going to get offered a truck load

I know Clarry, not super close but enough to know him I can’t ever see him leaving this club, he loves the club and loves the boys and I can’t see that ever changing 

I have so much of my identity tied up with supporting an incompetent football club. I am seriously rattled.

Club twitter just now...

"The club's running unbelievable at the moment – 4-0, couldn't be in a better place. Probably in recent years, when the other teams have got a run on against us, we've been a little bit negative, but we've matured as a group and we're handling it a lot better."

Outstanding news,   Fan, blooody, tastic  news even, shows Commitment on behalf of the player to the club, I hope his reward the other way was more than adequate .   He will want to stay for longer if we win a Granny this year and/or next.

As much as I have criticised Clarry on this site for various things over the years (e.g. kicking scrubbers, overhead loose handballs, grinning after missing easy goals, etc.) and posted heresay about his text message to Cripps last year, I am sincerely happy that he has signed on.

Clarry is a genuine A grade inside mid and we need players like him to finally win another premiership. Well done to all involved who helped him over the line in the contract negotiations. Go Dees.

That is extremely interesting.

The Yze impact seems under appreciated, Hasn’t been spoken off as much as Williams.

Bringing in Yze and Williams will prove to be THE switch that turned this club around 

 

If we believe this to be the case, then Pert probably needs to take credit for keeping our quality players on the list with the review and changes he drove. Personally, I don't doubt he was looking around (or maybe his mgr was for him) but he would have needed interest from a team that will challenge sooner than MFC to have even considered moving and Carlton was never that team - they do however have salary cap room to help drive his price up which is handy. Anyway, excited to have him on board and love the way he goes about his footy. We have an awesome midfield emerging with maturity

Watch this space.  Strong mail that there is another major change in the wind.

Sounds promising ... can you advise if its player related, football dept related, any other category you could narrow it down to?

Don’t know. Maybe it was just all round frustration, but he and Yze are working really well together i am assured, so i was confident he would sign. 

so maybe he is coachable after all.

Everyone is coachable when they are engaged and want to learn. 
Yze was not only a gun player, but part of a 3peat.

Sorry Bigred but I disagree. No Melb fan would ever under appreciate YZE. One of the smartest payers of the Daniher era, a Clarkson strategist for nearly 10 years and was wanting to come home 2 years ago. Rightfully Clarkson made him stay.

Williams is brilliant in other aspects and a great coaching addition.

But underestimate YZe's imact on the way the team is playing?

- Never. Clarry's signature sosays so too.

Tracc on 360- wrapped about Oliver.

Said difference between now and two years ago is we take feedback heaps better and are more mature, whereas two years ago, we may have said 'get stuffed' to feedback.

Sign of maternity for sure, to be able to take well intentioned feedback.

(And in that spirit, it’s rapt, not wrapped - or wrapt as we sometimes see on this forum. Rapt, as in rapture.)

A massive vote of confidence for Goodwin. No way he signs so early if he does not fully support the coach and the direction we are heading.

About time we all get behind the coach

Even higher than that.  I'm saying no more.

Surely it isn’t Pert leaving or anything. Can you at least put that to rest please?

Fantastic news! How good is this to be a Dees supporter at the moment. Perfect start to the year. Key forwards to come in. Oliver and Hunt committing to new deals. Max doing same pre-season. Jonesy to play his 300th on Anzac Eve when we rip the Tigers a new one!

Would the love be so ardent if we had lost all 4 games and Oliver decided not to re-sign. 

Sorry Old Fart but it is amazing to read the accolades and love after a few wins. They better keep winning.

    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. Were th

    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
