This is so disconcerting, being an actual AFL club of substance. Kudos to getting another up and comer signed on longer term.

His aggression/arrogance grew with his confidence this season, he was really into English and Schache during the grand final.

When was his contract due to run out? It doesn't actually say how much longer he's signed on for. 

 

Gun player BTW, will be a key pillar of our backline for years to come.

I reckon he was contracted til the end of 2022

Good luck to any opposition team kicking a winning score against Petty, Bowey, Salem, Lever Rivers, Hunt,    etc and of course May until hopefully his 38th birthday. Honourable mentions to Spargo, Langdon, Oliver, Neal-Bullen, Brayshaw and all the other 'team' defenders who help out

The amazing stat this year as noted on the finals discussion was that if Dees kick over 65 points they win, such is the effectiveness of the defesnive stratgey and personnel.

Love his aggression and the “don’t mess with me or my teammates” attitude. The good thing is that he is not alone.

Good get!

What do we think he’s on. My thoughts would be about $400k per year. They’d have to factor in how good he could be in 2024 and 2025. He could be on as high as $450k if they think he could be a 550k-600k player in those last 2 years?!

fantastic result - this will take him through to free agency, i would expect?

by the time the end of 2025 rolls around he could be well primed to take over from lever as our tall backline 'general'

you would imagine both the crom and the pear would have been in his manager's ear about getting him home to south oztraya - he is EXACTLY what they are both missing from their current line-up

He did an excellent job on Hawkins in the Prelim when May went off with hamstring issues.  If he puts on a bit muscle, learns a few more tricks from May and in due course can replace him.

Contract renewal is for 3 years 'til end of 2025.  By end of 2025  May will be a smidgeon under 34 (January birthday) if he is still playing.  Petty will be 26.  

Great signing not just now but for future list planning.

 

Edit:  Just noticed that he will be an RFA at the end of the contract.  Imagine if he has another premiership medallion or two and will be 26; at his peak.  Will be in huge demand.  Oh well.  Let's make hay while the sun shines with him and the other premiership youngsters.

He would probably prefer you to talk about his aggression towards players who are not in the top 10 softest players in the entire league.

The way that he stepped up and hit the ground running shows the quality of our development team and Harrison’s character, he grasped the opportunity and exceeded all our expectations.💕❤️💙

I still think there is a chance he might end up forward, he is a really good contested mark when  he makes that his focus. 

But regardless, he has been sublime this year. His timing to leave his player and commit to being an additional spoiler, has all the ear marks of a young Lever. And that touch of arrogance is great to see.

Really happy with this extension. Now we just need Turner to come along too. Lever, Petty and Turner post May. I'd be completely happy with us targeting another KPD in the first round this year, if we think they're good enough.

We want that second wave of elite talent continuing to come through underneath Petracca, Oliver, Salem and Lever.

Since you game style relies heavily on excellent defence, I'm happy if we keep nurturing those sort of players.

Reckon this bloke can be an All Australian in three or four years.

Great contested mark. Tough. Great spoiler.  Good disposal especially kicking. Will become  a better handballer with more experience.

Incredible talent identification by our recruiters.

How goals did he have kicked on him since he came into the side?  Couldn't have been many.  Can't remember him getting outmarked too often either.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
