Brilliant news! Trac is a star and will still get even better as our team improves.

There’s real loyalty at our club and it’s started at the top, Jonesy and Gawny have led the way, Viney, Salem and Trac have followed. It’s great for club stability now and our future, something great is building!!!!

Not to mention Lever restructuring his contract to allow the club to manage the cap a little better. There's real buy-in from the players which is a huge component of trying to achieve success.

The money Roos got from us was well spent. I shudder to think where we would be if he hadn’t come across. 
Maybe you don’t remember 2012-13 so well. 
never forget the Foundations when rebuilding 

May the Curse be lifted….

Yep...we.would not be where we are now without Roosy coming in.  He built the base line into the culture.....Effort, Defence and winning or at least evening up the contested ball.

Sure, he was only there for the contract/dollars but he instilled the above while there and the rest of the pieces are now being put in place.

I had no idea Burgoyne was "interested" in us back in 2009 ish.

He probably made the right call in fairness to head to Glenferrie.

 

I believe he met with us, and proceeded to say thanks, but no thanks.
And yes, he DEFINITELY made the right move. He would have been looking elsewhere (and with less currency) after 3 years of the clown show we had become.

No idea who those guys are.  That it is a man is still a disturbing image.  

No more comment from me - don't want to derail a great thread.

Amazing deal, glad he’s a demon for life. Personally I was never in any doubt as his enthusiasm for his teammates isn’t something you can fake, he genuinely loves playing for us. When he kicks a goal I swear I see in his eyes the kid he was before he got drafted saying “I’ve got the best job in the world”. 

Looking forward to more Trac highlights!

How nice is it that players are now staying instead of heading elsewhere. 

Look 7 years is risky and over the next few years I do not want to hear it being bought up like Grundy is copping now. Hopefully we have some success.

But credit to Christian the last 2 years he has finally worked out what he has to do to become that elite player. 

Now clubs can back off and sucked in, he is a demon for life.

A super-talented Demon shaping as a legend for the Club, like Robbie. Does the heart good. 

CP strikes me as a rapidly maturing, well balanced guy from a strong family, Can play a bit too. He will succeed Gawn as captain. We had a pretty good (Swiss) Italian captain a while back, by the way.

If the money is to be believed in the papers: 6mil over 7 years.  ~900K per year. that is not bad.  

In 3-4 years we will be thinking he is getting paid well below his market value as the salaries and TV deals increase over time post covid

Rusty,  I know it is meant in jest but I have a problem with that image.  A man spanking a defenceless woman isn't funny to me.

Just FYI LH the MAN he is spanking is Dean Ambrose aka Jon Moxley

Watched his interview on AFL360. Very impressed.

A far cry from the joker and pest of his early days. 

 Captain material.  Wouldn't be surprised if he succeeds Max.

I've been thinking about this a bit lately. It's Petracca or Lever for mine. The more dominant and team orientated Petracca has become, the more he's come into captain calculations for me. 

Lewis also floated it on 360 last night.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    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. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    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. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
