LATEST POSITION FOR CONTRACT RENEWALS UP TO Novemeber 8

Updated for one year contracts for Hibberd and Melksham

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The Original post of this thread on Nov 26, 2021 was:

The list for our next Premiership 🎏🏆 tilt is:

image.png.c7ea0056cd90a355e1302134a738d547.png

 

At the excellent suggestion by @La Dee-vina ComediaI have identified the Premiership 🎏🏆players.

Draftees added are: van Rooyen, Howes, Woewodin as Senior List players and Moniz- Wakefield as a B Rookie.  This gives us one list spot for a senior player if we were take a Delisted FA or and A Rookie in the SSP draft or the mid-year draft.

Note that Jordon is now officially a senior player.

Milestone games in the 2022 H & A season could be:

  • 200:  Melksham, T. McDonald
  • 150:  B. Brown, Salem
  • 100:  Hunt

In terms of 2022 contract renewals:

  • Most of the 2022 OOC's will sort themselves out. 
  • However, Brayshaw and Hunt will both be Restricted Free Agents (See edit below).  I can't imagine that either will want to leave and we would get comp draft picks if they did.  Of interest is the length of Brayshaw's contract given that his contemporaries have long terms. 
  • Jackson is said to be in contract discussions.
  • And of course, we would all love it if Oliver's contract is extended next year rather than wait with much angst to his RFA year of 2023.  Can't see him wanting to leave.
  • I love all our players and don't like to think of departures.  Nonetheless, next years list management could be challenging as those OOC in 2022 are either Premiership 🎏🏆 players or have yet to play a game.  The exceptions are:  Baker, Bedford and Smith.  Hibberd may be a retirement depending on how the youngsters shape up.

Overall, it is a very stable list for the next few years and is a list that can go back to back.  

Edit@old55has advised that Hunt and Weideman will be 'Unrestricted Free Agents' so have reflected that in the table with 'FA'.  With Brayshaw it is a bit harder to tell whether he will be an RFA or a UFA.  The difference being that with the former if there is an offer to him we can match it.  With the latter it means we can't.

Late Edit:  Judd Mc Vee added to the A Rookie list. 

The  only list spot we have left is one B Rookie.

Thanks @Lucifers Hero - tremendous work!

I'm speculating that Hunt and Weideman will be Unrestricted FA because I think they are unlikely to be in the top 25% of salary.  As you say, it's hard to tell whether Brayshaw would be in the top 10 money earners or not - I think he's be right on the cusp.  It's probably interesting too whether say Petty would be RFA or UFA on the basis of his long-term contract.

UFA would be my guess old55, just like Frawley in 2014 who was an UFA as he was not in top 25%

Thanks LH that is a mighty effort, very Demon like. How did we secure our Cat B Rookie?

As our NGA player we nominated to match a bid on him in the draft.  As no bid came there was no need to match and we can automatically take him as a B Rookie without him going into any other draft.  

That happens later today but I've assumed that it is a fait accompli.

Interesting that the players with the highest numbers of games under their belts are largely from other clubs. 

There are two reasons for that.  Age is one factor ie those with more games are older.

But significantly a large number of our top players have missed a season (approx) through significant injury:  Gawn, Lever, Petracca all had ACL.  Salem missed a lot for thyroid and concussion.  Brayshaw, concussion.  Viney, foot.

Great credit to them to come back and become A-level/Elite players after those setbacks.

@Lucifers Hero - When the club re-signed Kade Chandler, he posted on Instagram "2 more years of this, this and this!" with some random pictures of Dees players. 

A few weeks ago the club submitted a list to the AFL of Rookies to be upgraded.  Jordon was on it, Chandler was not so remains a Rookie.

However, he cannot remain on the Rookie list after 2022, having been there for 4 years.  I would expect the club will do the same for him as they did for Jordon in 2021- during 2022 renew Chandler's contract, extend it a year and place him on the Senior list as part of the 2022 draft.

Thanks for explaining that LH, Taj and MW are the icing on our cake and we still have a live pick left to snare that elusive ruckman.

Just checked and Judd McVee already on the list.😀😀😳👍👌. We are seriously banking young talent, Mark Williams is going to be very busy.

The concern would be many of our bigs aging at the same time with Tomlinson, May,  BBrown,  and Tmac having just a few years left in them. The easiest player to draft is a mid but key positron players aren't that easy to find as b take more time. We will need to try and poach some again but without top end draft picks to trade this will be challenging. We may be left with a few holes in the list in future years if Weideman and Van Rooyen don't come on

Hopefully Weideman gets a full pre season this year and next year, then judge him!

when you look at the list and ages, we have great coverage all over the ground for next year. If the young kids continue to improve, and we have a good run with injury, adding in the belief instilled by a great final series and a flag, 2022 should be another great season.

When you work through our three finals matches, pretty much every player had one or more very good games, so team and individual belief should be sky high. Add the guys knocking on the door like Hunt, Tomlinson, Jordan, and Melksham puts us in a fantastic position!

Hard to be anything other than happy with our off-season, feels like Xmas has come early for Demonlanders. Not only did we take the players most mentioned on here as the best options for our picks, (JVR and Howes) but we got both Woey and AMW with AMW coming as a B rookie, the only way we were going to get him after taking 4 other players. Just brilliant list management, and we got more picks to trade or trade up again next year!!! Wow!

We also nailed it on need:

KP tall JVR tick

Quality Midfield depth Dunstan tick

Also able to play wing, tick with Howes and Taj

Quick developing small forward/wing with great skills AMW tick

Lockdown defender Judd McVee tick

The final piece is a train on raw ruckman as a category B rookie or in the mid-season draft. 
 

It’s really hard to be anything other than impressed this year. Exciting times!!!

Still a bit of work to do on 2022 expiries

It's been a quiet few weeks since Sparrow news...

From 22 lists, I reckon the priorities are Jackson, Brayshaw, Spargo and the two most recent draftees Laurie and Rosman and contracts will happen in due course, if they choose to stay.

For the others it will be a case of wait and see and take their chances getting into the best 22 or look for another club.  Would dearly love for Hunt to stay but fear he is not on the priority list.

Chandler will be upgraded to the senior list.

Not sure about the rest of the rookies.

M.Brown, 31yo, 196cm 

M. Gawn, 30yo, 209cm

M.Daw, 30yo, 195cm

B.Brown, 29yo, 200cm

S.May, 29yo, 193cm

T.McDonald, 29yo, 195cm

A.Tomlinson, 28yo, 194cm

Thats a lot of height heading towards the twilight of their careers. 

We will need to focus more on bringing in some height through draft and trade over the next few years.

I would particularly like to get some young rucks in to learn from Stafford, Gawn and Jackson.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    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

    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
