2022 List and Contract Details

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.

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

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

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.

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!!!

    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

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

    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
