Jacko Trac Clarry????

Theres now a list of premiership players who are going to look very attractive to opposition teams, who will have salary space or other attractions.

WA is a very atractive location and possibly cheaper with opportunities to get better return and n and nvestments.

BUT if you want to be part of the most significant ccesful TEAM and be remembered far beyond your playing career you may have to make some sacrifices.

Just look at Dangerfield  who has a profile as an important ndividual but has failed to get that elusive flag he wanted. Yes he has a great life in Geelong back home and is more than comfortable but he has not achieved the ultimate prize that all players want.

while the Premiership is the ultimate prize I am sure Swallow , Bowey and others will not be recognised as great until they are multiple winners over a long career. 

Jacko has only just begun and I am sure he is something special but so was Jesse Hogan.

Good luck to the negotiators

Swallow ?

It must be a fun life, waiting for someone to make a spelling mistake on a forum, so you can call them out.

Well done to you
 

Don’t take it personally, 1964_2. 
Actually, forget what I just said… DO take it personally. For it’s flattering to be pulled up by Demonstone as he only pulls up the best. 😁
Yes, he’s pulled me up a couple of times, and I’m a proofreader! But I’m proud to say that I once caught him out on an error. Alas, it was in a PM so everyone will just have to take my word for it. 😉

Just an attempt at levity, 1964.  Don't take it too seriously.

The problem is Demonstone that some posters do take it more than seriously. For some it can be confidence sapping.

I am a ( partially reformed) pedant. There are two reasons for this. First, I realised that fat fingers or too many vinos led to careless mistakes by my good self so ......... you know ..... glass houses etc.

Second, I realised that some posters ( just as in the general population are poor spellers)  and really are unable to do anything about it. So why (possibly) lessen their fun in posting?

Nowadays I am pedantic only toward posters who I really like or really dislike.

I like LJ I really do. The kid has not put 50 games together and we are already getting our knickers in a knot. 

He is learning his craft with an all time 5X AA ruckman. He ain’t going anywhere in the next few years. After that and a few more premierships I’ll happily exchange him for 2 top 10 draft picks that Meth coke will offer us ala Tim Kelly style. And we can rebuild once more. We will have Mac Andrew’s and Jeff whites Xbox by then anyway 😂😂to cover our ruck stocks.

Ok who are you, and what have you done with the real BBO?!! The BBO we all know and tolerate. This is too sensible, and even borderline sweet, to be him.

I actually thought you meant Sparrow. Both seven-letter words. Both begin with S. And both a type of bird!

Me to.!!We all know how good Luke Jackson is and how much better we expect him to become, he has shown that he is a team oriented player that isn’t afraid of hard work. He is an MFC Premiership player who appeared to really enjoy our success, to my mind he is a stayer.❤️💙

Running back to Perth didn't work out too well for Jessie - I think Luke knows he is in a very special place right now

The core of this premiership team can enjoy sustained success and get handsomely paid too along the way If they stick together

Plenty of examples of characters that chased the $$$'s only to be disappointed - its not all about money IMO

"...The core of this premiership team can enjoy sustained success and get handsomely paid too along the way If they stick together..."

...and set up for life after footy too if they play their cards right and make sensible financial decisions.  The world is at their feet.

The the AFL can then truly claim to be an international competition.

The boy's only 20 years old.

Plenty of time to make big dollars after success at the dees.

No rush.

GO DEES

That shouldn't stop Dogga getting a just reward for his ability at his craft irrespective of age. I am sure the extensions over the last year or two were appropriate and fair. The 100% resigning would seem to indicate this.

Of course our Premiership  makes our players even more valuable but there are ways teams of players can be rewarded bonuses along the way. 

If Dynasties like Hawks Cats Tigers can handle this I have no doubt the Dees are well equipped to reward our players the right way  and to maintain longevity of success in the process.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
