Nor is Huge contract offered to petracca. 

He has gone from one of the best players in tbe AFL. To one of the best 5, arguably 3.

Max must be in the conversation for top 5 too.

...and Oliver at 1, we're looking good.

This afternoon the Club tabled an offer to CP that if accepted would essentially make him a Demon for life.  Stay alert as the offer is so attractive, we might get a prompt acceptance.   

The 7 years is correct, however, the $900k per season is well off. Thanks for your support dazzledavey36, as you know from past history, when I post a breaking story it is 100% factual.  

I'm absolutely elated by this. Tracc is a once in a generation player, and to resign him when big profile clubs with even bigger chequebooks are loitering about is a huge endorsement for the direction

As long as Tracc has seen it, it doesn’t matter if it’s leaked. Irrelevent. 
 

Goodvibes has leaked it here anyway 

Journo’s read these pages

If it’s a good deal he will take it very seriously

Hoping this is true. Source? Regardless, there is this effervescent aura that refreshingly permeates above all speculation. I have no doubt that CP, like us all, has a whiff, let alone a taste, that we are finally onto something grand. Get on the train if you haven't already. Stay on it if you are. This is such a good ride...

@Rod Grinter Riot Squad what makes you so sure this isn't a strategic leak from the club? If it becomes public knowledge, it does put some pressure on Christian to sign. If that's the case, I'm not sure it's the greatest strategy, but I don't think we have enough information to know whether it's necessarily bad that there's been a leak.

Wow, we put forward a contract...

Most likely not first offer, not exciting if it has leaked so quickly...

Who gives a [censored] if it is leaked? Hardly information others can use against us

A long term deal for Petracca would be awesome!

 I assume he bumped into trac at a 7/11. 

In any event seems pretty obvious the club would be putting a big offer on the table and working to sign him up for the long term.

Petracca might.

Leaking from within the club is never a good sign. However, we don't know whether this particular leak (if it's even true) came from the club, Petracca's manager, his family or even from within the AFL.

Salem turned his back on FA when the 5 yr deal was put in front of him, Petracca may well do the same.

Might have been clever sequencing from the Dees to sign up CP's two best mates at the club before putting the contract in front of him.

It's been really good work by the club to lock Salem and Oliver away so early (and hopefully Trac soon), it takes the oxygen out of any speculation and allows the club to have singular focus on performing on the field. Brilliant.

I thought he'd wait until next year when he becomes a free agent.

Another poster out it well re Oliver re-signing. They said the offer should reflect that we value him without compromising our list to ensure we are well placed for success. To this end it is irrelevant what Track could earn as a free agent if he is happy with the offer we are able to out forward as it would be to the clubs, and therefore his detriment, if we have to compete with free agent bids and thereby compromise our list in order to retain him.

For mine, if it is true that the club has tabled an offer to Trac it would be on the basis that there is already a common ground on what it looks like in terms of years and $, there would be minimal negotiation, and I'd think it would be announced soon.

Yep. Great point. Offer him the contract we will have to offer him at the end of next year. 

Hopefully he signs it now and we can focus on setting up the rest of the list and for a stab at a free agent.

Emotion aside, if you're Trac why sign now?  He's not out of contract till the end of next year.  Unless he gets injured, his value is going to continue to rise and until we make finals and win finals, we (and he) doesn't know if our current form is a flash in the pan or if we have really turned the corner.

Do you think he can get any better? Maybe marginally. For me, it is more about doing what he is doing week in/week out - which strictly speaking makes him better by being reliably consistent - and maybe kicking some bags. So you factor this in to the offer now, as well as a Brownlow and Norm Smith value capture, just in case. Knock out offer now.

Some players don't like having contracts hanging over their heads. They don't like the pressure it adds to their performance. Then journo's start writing articles and speculate why said person hasn't signed on etc. Better to sign early so you can just focus on your training and football and forgetting all that Fugazi.

It was a very specific post (tabled “this afternoon”) and so I was curious as to how the poster came across the info... did I ask him to name names?

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr
