Rival clubs circling Weideman

But you realise they need points to match the bid that will come for Darcy as a father/son selection. He will probably be selected at 1 or 2 and the Dogs need points to match, they won't actually be using their first round selection (pick 19/20)

I do mate, i just think the dogs could get a far better deal than 33, 38 and 57 for pick 17 or 18 from another club. It would be a steal if we could get that trade done.

I don't understand the Gunston move he only has 1 year left with his bad back. Why waste a player on the list? He's signed on at the Hawks until 2022 isn't he? I don't think he would get a game.

HF: NEAL - BULLEN, MCDONALD, PICKETT

F: SPARGO, B.BROWN, FRITSCH.

Their is no one he can replace he will spend his time in the 2's. Keep Weid if they think McDonald is cooked but I don't think he is cooked he's got a couple of years in him especially if that barracker not supporter dopey Dazzle thinks he's cooked then surely he has more years in him. Know nothing clown. Eventually Jackson can take over the CHF\ruck role if McDonald isn't up to it.

Don't understand why you would go after a 30 y.o with a shot back, he's a 3 time premiership player who would not have the hunger to come back and put his body on the line.

AF do you see Petty, Tomlinson, Lever and May in same backline come 2022?

I don't see Tomlinson down back next year. Petty, to my mind, has surpassed him for that role. 

Not sure where he fits in to be honest - he won't (shouldn't) get the wing back. Perhaps he ventures forward and competes with Tmac for the CHF role.

Do you mean he'll play fwd?

For me, Tomo was quality then got injured. Petty took his chance in a backline with May and Lever. Not a bad backline to play in.

Ditto pretty much my thoughts as well gents. Lets give him 1 more, get him to live with resident psch Chocko and see if we can make him a vital part of the machine

Picket

Have a look at some of Weids' games this year I just did and I can understand him not getting a berth

His skills attack and body language are extremely poor

I  really wish he has some upside but I cannot see it and his whole year has been poor

I am sure it would be on the agenda, but easier said than done

Agree he is doing a very good job, but if say Tomlinson is back and Weid leaves and a key forward goes down, Petty is the next one they would try.

Letting Petty establish himself as a defender is essential for his confidence as an AFL player - I wouldn't move him for 2022.

I am sure, in our current club mindset, Petty, like anyone on the list, would be putting in 100% into any roles he was asked to play. 
 

I was wondering if anyone knew if Tomlinson had ever spent any significant time forward, or in any other role?  As I recall he was recruited as a wingman to complement Langdon.

Agree with this Redleg.

Additionally, a lack of interest from other clubs was a motivating factor for TMac over the preseason and this year - I’d hope this would also be a motivating factor for Weid next year. Prove them all wrong.

Cats would be pretty interested in picking up a FF who could slot in to their  forward line and be given time to settle like their current one was.

He is needed here and we should be considerate of just that.

His defensive efforts were disappointing this year.  It was either poor aerobic fitness due to his injury and time off his legs or it was his attitude.  I suspect it started out as the former, and the club were hoping he could build game fitness by playing, and it ended up as the latter as there was no excuse for the insipid Collingwood performance.   

His upside will only be known if he has an uninterrupted preseason.

Not sure you can '"surpassed" him. Pretty sure I read that Tommo had only been beaten once in a one on one contest since being moved back

Nonetheless Tommo's fitness and endurance means that he can be played in a number of positions. Petty has already demonstrated he can do that as well.

And people shoudn't forget we have been blessed with few injuries so have spare capacity as it were is a good thing.

We are lucky to be in such as spot which is why if Weideman goes its not the end of the world.

the cats play Henry, Stewart, Blic, Kolo and Henderson all 190+ with speed and lockdown by touhy, o'connor and bews and it works. so yes i can see them all playing together, 

grimes, astbury, balta(rance), vlaustin is a similar scenario

Forward Sam Weideman remains the Dees' highest priority re-signing for next year with the key forward out of contract. – Callum Twomey

Sam Weideman is widely tipped to depart, so the Dees could have some additional draft capital. They currently do not have a first-round pick, which will make it harder for them to get deals done in the trade period. - Edmund? SEN

so which will it be hmmm

I can see Tommo slotting in at Full back and May moves to the Smith/Hibbard role. Leaves Salo, Hunt,Bowie, Rivers for the otehr 3 spots in the 7. Lever can float and not have to worry about a tall. May can pick up 3rd tall or small. Petty and Tommo can lock down.

May, Tommo, Lever

Salo, Petty, Bowie

Rivers/Hunt

    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

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
