Pert is fine. Cook has been spoken too

no idea how it went

Another ex player on the Board was my feeling

So you're saying Cook was spoken to about a board position?

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.

That is all i know AF

(Maybe to help negotiate our Training Base) 

I have no idea what the outcome is at this stage

Oliver has now played 90 games in a row, third longest streak in the AFL.

Trac has played 62 in a row good for 11th in the AFL, and Ed Langdon 61 which is 12th.

We have a few iron men in the engine room!

 

The next highest for Melbourne is 28 in a row for Jake Lever, and it isnt it amazing what some continuity can do for a player as Jake is in All Australian form.

Saw a pretty meaningful moment for me during last week's game, forgotten who we played, but two of our tough nuts both together at the same moment tackled an opposition player, with a ferocity that i hadn't seen for a couple of decades.

Ill just leave it up to you who i'm talking about.

After all the constant conjecture and speculation about his future, I am pleased we now have closure.

Good on you Clarry and well done MFC!

Can we just make clear this is nothing to do with Pert's position as CEO?

I believe it's seen as solid.

I've been seeing it most weeks. The ones who consistently get in to help tackle and create a stoppage are Kozzy and Spargo. But overall as you say team tackling has been excellent.

I realise this is easy to say now that it's done, but I was never really worried about this. This is the guy who, when told he needed to lose weight as a junior, just stopped eating. Getting bogged down in details isn't his style. I highly doubt he's the type of person who would want to bother himself protracted contract negotiations to squeeze out a few extra bucks, or to make ultimatums about team success.  

I feel the same will be true when he's a FA in 2023. So long as the MFC open with an offer that is fair and reasonable for a player of his calibre, it will resolve with no fuss.

Great news. Clarry might actually be our best midfielder in a very long time.

Right up there with Greg Wells, Gerard Healy, and in my humble opinion better than Brian Wilson, Cameron Bruce or Todd Viney.

Funny how they all look just about the same age, yet they are not, and ANB and Spargo are sharp shooters.

Funnier still how cocky Clark and miskick Miers couldn't get over being rushed and being caught.

Brian Wilson would love playing in this current side!!

He was a magnificent footballer

FWIW I think Wells and Healey also kicked lots of goals. Healey also played as a forward and kicked 90? One year.

I really do like the intensity and hardness, we are applying all over the ground at the moment.

This intensity will take us a long way against mentally weaker clubs, Our lot seem to believe that there will be support for them if they muck up a handball or pickup.  And it has been there on most occasions .   Not sure I would have wanted to play against this quality of team,   Far too fast, and too intimidating.   But I love watching and supporting it.  Whoever brought this in is to be congratulated. I think the talent has mostly been there, but not the implementation.  Are they just a little bit older and wiser ?

Pretty close there, bushy.  Healy won the goalkicking with 77 in 1982, finishing just one in front of Mark Jackson, who remarkably kicked 76 goals in each of his two seasons with us.

Healey was a true champion's champion, particularly just before he was tempted by Sydney to re-locate. He was doing magical things in the forward line - an immense talent at that point.

I get the impression that Iva has heard or been told similiar things to myself. 
but I cannot confirm that. Pert is the CEO, he is not going anywhere. BC doesn’t want to be CEO at Jeelong anymore, but he has been spoken to by people at MFC to come back home in some capacity. 
That is as much as i know.

may have far more concrete info.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop SWYL. I shouldn’t compare the two,  but getting an elite home base would feel almost as good as winning a flag! If BC were to come on board and help with that in someway, then brilliant.

Would have been nice to have him in 87 and 88.

    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
