I'd give Tommy Sparrow the opportunity to move up to no.2, he seems like a worthy man to continue the Chunk legacy

Wouldn’t he wanna keep the number he wore in a Premiership winning side?

Maybe, but I'd give him the chance if he wants it

I also don’t believe in placing such reverence on any jumper number, despite how respected/adored/long-serving a player was. It’d likely put too much pressure on the player who is chosen to wear that number. Unnecessary pressure. Imvho, anyways. 
But yeah, if Tom wants the no. 2, I can’t see why he shouldn’t be given that.

Interesting Petty has pushed Adam out. I agree and forget that Petty is still very young.

And DUNSTAN.

I haven't really followed him but I'm glad you rate him. Sounds like the club has done well picking him.

He should stick with 32. Think of the fans.

I'm still stuck with 37 on my jumper for big Maxy.

I still chuckle sometimes when I see Spartacus wearing number 9 which I still makes me think of Neitz. It's a big contrast but I'm starting to like him just as much. It couldn't have been easy for him to get where he has given his size.

Yes, Tommy should stick with number 32, it’s his premiership winning jumper after all.  
Cam Bruce went alright and of course there are some famous players from other teams in the number 32: Timmy Watson, Mark Riccuito, Buddha Hocking and Paddy Dangerfield.

I think Nathan Jones should decide what happens with highly esteemed number #2 jumper.

Personally, I like the idea of Bailey Laurie getting number #2 as he used to wear it with the Oakleigh Chargers and number #16 hasn't been too lucky for Bailey so far with his injuries in 2021.

Otherwise, either Jacob van Rooyen or Blake Howes could be worthy recipients of the number #2 jumper.

One final cheeky suggestion is to wait until Tim Taranto leaves GWS and offer it to him when he comes to the Demons! 😁

i would think:
2 - van rooyen (time for a tall to take it over)
21 - dunstan (third second hand player in a row to have it)
22 - woewodin (seems a natural fit)
27 - howes (next available)
39 - moniz-wakefield (continuing the indigenous tradition)
40 - mcvee (next available)

i'm not changing our 22 (+1) from the team that won the premiership, so...

starting squad...
B: Hibberd - May - Lever
HB: Rivers - Petty - Salem
C: Langdon - Petracca - Brayshaw
HF: Neal-Bullen - McDonald - Spargo
F: Fritsch - B Brown - Pickett
Foll: Gawn - Oliver - Viney
I/c: Harmes - Jackson - Bowey - Sparrow
Medi-sub: Jordon
Emerg: Dunstan - Weideman - Hunt

next...
B: Hunt - Tomlinson - J Smith
HB: D Smith - Turner - Rosman
C: Baker - Dunstan - Bedford
HF: Melksham - M Brown - Laurie
F: Van Rooyen - Weideman - Chandler
Foll: Daw - Jordon - Woewodin
I/c: Howes - Moniz-Wakefield - McVee

decided not to leave the casey players in, but you'd imagine mitch white (the captain), james munro, cory stockdale, jack hutchins, cory machaya, tom freeman, and the promising corey elllison will still be key players

One of the more grating aspects of the ‘red and blue print’ era at the MFC was that every nominally key player had to have a famous number. Watts had Norm Smith’s 4. Scully got Barrass’ 31 before it being given to Grimes to remove the foul taste of Voldemort’s departure from the club from the number. From memory, they were pumping up number 9 for Trenners because of Neita and Brian Dixon.

Can’t we just let people make their own history?

I think Woewodin wants to create his on path no 22 will be in the shadows of his father. Father sons don't usually take the number of their old man. Stretch didn't Viney didn't.

2. Vacant (for now)

21. Van Rooyen (swingman, just like Pedersen)

22. Woewodin (old man's jumper)

27. Dunstan (wore 7 at St Kilda. Just put a 2 in front)

39. Howes (number he was drafted. Plus one more than 38 worn by Howe, the extra letter pushes him up a number)

40. McVee (next available)

45. Moniz-Wakefield (worn by a previous hard nut out of the NT)

I have never enjoyed footy so much as of the last six months and have never been so excited about the next season.

I'm sure we all feel the same.

Oh how sweet if this is another decade like the fifties or sixties and we win another 3 or four cups.

Yep, dominated all year, minor premiers, PREMIERS and, most recently, did well in the draft. 
It’s a great time to be a Dees fan!

Lock it in. I like the reasoning and connections where possible.

    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

    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).

    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

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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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
