Im so over it now and while i think its a hard decision for a young bloke and the money is going to be too good to refuse, i cant help but think it was one of a number of things that derailed our season.

Its really disappointing though..  Draftees should be signed to 4 year contracts when drafted.

The media really went after us this year. Had to overplay everything to get clicks, because we as reigning premiers are not a Collingwood, Carlton, Richmond etc who gets enough interest / clicks just out of any kind of standard news story.

So all of the “Goody behavioural issues”, “Bartlett board fighting”, “10-0 - won’t lose a game all year”, “Milky punch”, “Jacko leaving”, “have the wheels fallen off” stories were exaggerated and no doubt a constant distraction and waste of energy for the club/players.

Ruck Rover

Starting 4

Gawn , JACKSON , Oliver , Petracca

Did we even try this once? 

this is the issue with Goodwin. Is our “method”, “focus on pressure, defence”, “repeating the basics” that important that we couldn’t even try this for a couple of centre bounces at an appropriate time? (Ie vs Nth, West coast, or when 50 points up against GWS or Bris)

The only difference is we are a better club now and never put Dogga in front of the media.  
But I’ll leave it there. Most will understand. 

Are you suggesting he will never design rockets? Which could be an issue given he has ambitions of discovering other planets

What a load of nonsensical drivel. Covered all bases and hypotheticals in one minute. 
 

Bring back Tom Morris and his [censored]-eating grin.

That is weird.  Blicavs plays ruck/midfielder/relief ruck. It looks just like the role he has at the dees. 

Does J Ralph really think if that was what he wanted we wouldn't tweak the role for him. 

Feeling eerily similar to the time Howe left us because Collingwood promised him a role change only for him to assume (and thrive in) exactly the same role he played at Melbourne.

This is actually really good news - saying no preferred WA club which gives us some leverage.

If true, this may be Jacko’s method of looking after us. Rather than the speculated, “I will sign with Melb for 2 years, if Freo don’t offer up the fair picks” 

Good news. Go your hardest Freo & WCE - who wants him the most?

He’s too broken. Also you’d end up paying overs for the name. Give us picks or someone younger/reliable/impactful.

edit: sorry, this was in reply to a separate post re. Fyfe

I think it’s a ploy by Jackson’s management to gain leverage; if you don’t agree to a trade, we’ll go to the PSD and he’ll land at the eagles for no return.

Jackson will not nominate a preferred club, and is fielding offers from both Fremantle and West Coast - leaving Melbourne to strike the best deal with one of those clubs.

Massive if true wow 

No more Grundy in the profile pic? Gone cold on him? Or just pumped about our new gun full fwd Harry Petty?!

Luke not nominating Freo May well be a good thing for us but I’m not so sure. For two reasons. One maybe Freo have gone a bit cold on him giving his recent form. If they are not willing to pay him the big bucks then it’s going to be harder for us to get the big picks. 
The second reason is yes WC coast have pick two and pick 20 which in my view is about right for Jackson but that’s nearly all their draft capital this year and they have massive gaps all over their list.  I don’t think it makes sense for where they currently are with their rebuild to waste their picks in Luke. 
It would appear Luke had done the right thing by us but let’s see how it pans out.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
