Hunch

That is not quite correct. A few weeks ago a fortune teller came into the Salvo's store that I volunteer at and offered to read my palm and she said I followed a team that wore red and blue colours and there was a tall black haired player who had played around 30 games, and  was about 20 years of age that came from the west of Australia and that he would remain at the club for many years to come. True story.

Judd McVee isn't that tall

These "fortune tellers", tarot readers, etc, are actually skilled at what is called "cold reading", whereby knowingly or unknowingly, they are picking up on subtle clues that you (usually unwittingly) give away to them, such as wearing a Melbourne jumper, having number 6 on the back of the jumper, and saying "God, I hope our young dark-haired ruckman doesn't go back to Perth."

He is a high-character kid, and I think he genuinely values his friendship/partnership with Gawny and as long as Gawny is at the club, Dogga will be there too. Hopefully by the time Max retires, Jacko will be fully entrenched in MFC culture and Melbourne city living - I don't think he's going anywhere, for years at least.

Get Dogga's signature long term and lock in Clarry beyond next year and our core is sorted. We'd challenge for the next 5 years if we can keep the core of this list together.

Cmon Jacko sign on. You know you want to play for the best team going around ;)

The reality is Luke while a gun in the making still has a lot of development to go through before going to another club for big $$$. He would be far better off for his own good signing on for a least another 2 years if not the RFA.

Its way easier to perform in a top side like the Dees with the likes of Gawn and our mids than with a rebuilding team without a Gawn.

I am tipping his management will advise him to stay while at the same time negotiating a good deal.

When Barassi left Melbourne to go to Carlton I was a kid and I cried for days. If Clayton Oliver went anywhere but Melbourne Id cry for years.

Maybe a tad misguided, but If he ever left….image.gif.7db2df83362639dab9ca7e4b3ffb20d8.gif

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. 

Completely agree! 

certainly not a given that we would be adequately compensated for the value of Jacko if he wanted to go home

West Coast have a lot of players entering their twilight years. They don’t have a great deal of youth coming through. MFC club on the other hand, we have a dynasty looking list right now. It may not end up that way, but Jackson would be weighing up the present. He’d have to be very homesick to consider leaving MFC. I don’t see it happening.

    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
