I really hope Jackson and Bradshaw re-sign - this whole thing leaves a bit of a bad taste after the fairy-tale that was last year.

That said, I have every confidence that JT will turn whatever compensation we get into (at least) two very good replacements for them.

 

The club needs to make a statement about the two players currently sucking the mojo out of the group. What the ... is going on pls?

Yeah they are human, it must be getting to them by now. 

Online reports say Brayshaw’s management is in Melbourne this week to work with Melbourne on a new deal beyond 2022. The sooner that is done the better. As for Jackson, I think 4 weeks out from the end of the season, the Club has the right to ask him to declare what he is doing next year. They don’t need to announce it. However, it may actually be a weight off his shoulders and allow him to play some decent footy before finals.

If they don't need to announce this, maybe it's already happened?

Both I guess. It does seem funny that it would put Darcy in a tradable situation. 

 

There's media whispers that Freo's clearing the decks to make room for Jacko is upsetting some of the natives.  Longmuir thinks Lobb will be at Freo next year (though I wouldn't expect him to admit that he's a trade target, but he did seem genuine when he said it), so I do wonder if Darcy might be in the mix being a Vic boy. 

I'd trade Jacko for Darcy if it came to that.

100% Grazman. If he's a good fit and helps prolong our successful period then I couldn't give a stuff about losing a generational talent.

For the here and now he's a better ruck, a better contested mark and a better forward target.  It would release Max to play more time forward (where I think he's actually our best tall forward).

Doubt we get Meek as well, but we could get a Blake Acres or a future second round draft pick to trade for someone like a Kieren Briggs or Matthew Flynn (considering the rumours of Grundy going to GWS)

if so then an aware coach wouldnt play him!

One, the coach might not be aware. I certainly haven’t telegraphed my plans to move jobs before I had to.

Two, he might not care. Even when I’ve quit jobs my bosses have all made sure as [censored] they get their pound of flesh out my notice period and why would footy clubs be any different?

Playing football isn’t like a typical job. It is played out in the public arena, where a brand is built.

And if he has indeed ‘checked out’, that says a lot about him competitiveness and commitment to his teams, while playing for a team that is 2nd on the ladder and in a match against an arch rival 

Mate, football is a job like any other, public or not. We fans think it’s way more than it is.

You're not suggesting this is acceptable are you? 

In that case he's got a notice period of 2 months to go and the company is better off walking him out of the building.

Oh I think it’s just human nature. 

and plenty of companies do exactly that.

I think by memory some past Demon player didn't want to sign on like Jackson . This player was dropped from the seniors. The player might have been Rivers ( the one who went to Geelong) or it could be the midfielder who went to Carlton. Does anyone else know of this occurrence ? Yes I am suggesting Jackson gets dropped at the end of the home and away matches if he hasn't signed. Brayshaw should be played up forward thou he is a good backman . I also thought we were going to turn Rivers into a midfielder like Hodge ex Hawks.

    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

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
