One of their young flag players has prematurely retired - Metropole?

Nic Nat only a season or two. 
Darling yet to front up. 
Kennedy - final year?

Is Hurn still playing?

Exactly they'll be [censored] for a while, why would he go there?

I love Dogga and think he's absolutely one of the top young prospects in the competition. While I think he'll probably stay for at least 2 more years, it actually wouldn't be the end of the world if he left.

He'd require two top ten picks, which is a bounty that would either put us in pole position to land Ben King (if it's this year). Or give the best recruiting manager in the country 2 cracks at finding elite talent. Neither of those scenarios is concerning (though I'd love to see dogga in the red and blue of course).

It's just so good to finally feel like the best club and not be adversely affected if a young gun leaves.

Smoke and mirrors. He will sign 3-4 years. The one I am a little concerned about is Clarry only signing on for another 2. I have said it before I would have signed him on for the time that we signed Viney on for and signed Viney on for 2.

Clarry signed on for two years extra (2023) at the same age as Trac signed on for two years extra. The next year (2021) Trac signed on for 7 more after already being contracted for the 2022 season anyway. Don’t be surprised if Oliver gets a 6-7 year extension this year early in 2022 even though he’s already contracted until the end of 2023. It’s all salary cap management at the end of the day. Clarry and Dogga are priorities.

Yeah, two top ten picks and a prime steak not steak knives minimum.

Completely disagree DM 

To lose one  of your players you st RV building a dynasty and to be ready to take over from Maxy roiled be hard to take. 
One crazy Demonlander ( he will know who he is/was) posted a similar sentiment after we lost a game in 2020 ( or it may have been 2019) saying we round get XXX on the trade for Clarry.

As events have proved there is only ONE Clarry and he is so special he just may be our greatest player ever ( if Trac doesn't claim it). Some players are harder to replace than others and we know why. No one comes near their best and they are match winners! They take over games and NO ONE can challenge them. Eg The Granny.

Yes Clarry has solved his issues with handball and disposal etc. and is now the elite player who he always  looked he would become. Maximum impact and ferocious attack on the ball with an over the top attitude NOT TO LOSE.

He often goes his hardest in the last quarter but to be fair it's all the time.

So saying 2 picks will replace Dogga is far too simplistic he is special and a champion who wins games already with his unique competitive style Great ball skills and pace that 199cm players don't have and his team first attitude plus he rarely if ever fumbles. 

We don't know how it will be if we have to replace Dogga ( like Clarry) but you don't know how valuable he is until you don't have him!!

Thats why Eagles were bloody lucky they got Josh Kennedy for Judd but that's rare rather than the norm.

He never said 2 first round picks would replace him.

He said that it's pretty much a starting point if Jackson decided to eventually go back to WA.

Draft picks aren't guaranteed in becoming a success but every player has a starting price.

Following on from what @Deez Man said I agree with him regarding Jason Taylor. You'd easily back him to unearth another Pickett and Jackson if we dod net two 1st round picks. That gives me comfort. 

In all of that, I doubt Jackson is leaving anything soon.

And if Eagles were on the bottom  it could be a disaster.

He and Clarry are major priority signings and the club absolutely knows that.

I hope Jacko truly is not homesick, as that will be the major reason he would leave. Having 6 or so, fellow WA teammates at the Dees won’t hurt.

We could find the salary cap room for him if needed.

Chill guys, Jacko ain’t going anywhere for at least 2 years.

If he did indicate he wanted to go home, a prudent agent would advise him to do two more years in Melbourne, get another flag, spend 2 more years developing with the games best ruckman and two of the best mids, then watch your value skyrocket. 
 

I think the whole homesick thing is petty overplayed these days. I actually think he’ll be a 1 club player.

DD he said " he'd require two top ten picks " and I'm my world that means exactly what I have understood .

Apparently there is something in that that makes that mean something else  to you? 

Not  querying JT nor underestimating Jim in any way but thsts not the argument.

I was likening a D/Lander previously writing Clarry in a similar vain and our Flag proved don't underestimate how good our players are. Dogga is a great talent and I don't think he is going anywhere soon ( yet) as he openly speaks so highly of Maxy and the Club.

His team ethic is fantastic and loves the boys snd wii relish the WA boys just joining us.

I believe a realistic payment and contract extension will be sorted.

Clarry maybe also this year if possible. 

We are growing as a Club towards the best we can be each decision that is made.

    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
