2022 List and Contract Details

Recommended Posts

 

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%

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.

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!!!

Updated for two of our youngest Premiership 🏆 players:  Bowey and Sparrow.  Both have extended for two years until end of 2024.

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.

    NIGHTMARES OF NARRM by Whispering Jack

    Narrm Time has arrived in our city as the Melbourne Football Club takes the name Narrm Football Club as part of the 2022 AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round. This week will see the reigning premier pay respect to the region the club calls home — the land of the Wurundjeri people and their culture, language and memory. The team will wear its indigenous guernsey designed by Wurundjeri/Dja Dja Wurrung artist Ky-ya Nicholson Ward and what better way to wear it than with a win over North Melbourne Football C

    WESTERN SUNSET by George on the Outer

    It was the top of the table Demons who inflicted their highest ever defeat of the Eagles, thereby ensuring that the sun has finally set on their long dynasty out West.  The final margin was 74 points but it was the final quarter barrage of seven goals which definitively signalled to the meagre West Coast opposition and supporters exactly who was in control.  That was after a similar six goal to one opening quarter, but hey … why not boo and complain about every decision that went aga

    ON THE RAMPAGE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons had it easy on a windy day under sunny skies at the home of the VFL Kangaroos at Arden Street on Sunday. They caught the hapless Roos who were badly depleted by injury on the hop and disposed of them with little trouble. It was the second time in consecutive seasons that Casey inflicted a 100 plus points defeat on the Roos who had no answers for an opponent on the rampage. When the game started, Casey was without three important forward line components in Mitch Brown, Ka

    RISING TO PHOENIX by William from West Perth

    On Sunday, when the Melbourne Football Club returns to the scene of the club’s most famous victory of the 21st Century, the feeling out there on the ground will most certainly be different. The dying moments of the night of 25 September, 2021 at Optus Stadium marked a team rising to the level of a Phoenix, bathing in the cheers and adulation from an adoring crowd in the wake of their premiership victory after so many years of hardship and desolation. This time around they can expect a main

    TO THE SWORD by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons closed off their game against the Southport Sharks with a comfortable 30-point win off the back of a monster six goal opening term in which they put the Southport Sharks to the sword and kept them scoreless.  Despite losing Toby Bedford to AFL medical sub duty, Majak Daw and Bailey Laurie, the Demons still fielded a strong list of 13 MFC players and also managed to blood two more local newcomers in Tyler Edwards and Tom Macrae after adding four debutants last week.

    NO HEAVEN FOR SAINTS by George on the Outer

    Just when St.Kilda thought it was heading toward Saintly Heaven in Season 2022, it was brought crashing to earth quickly by the ruthless Demons machine. It wasn’t a long drawn out process before the Saints discovered how fragile they were. The Demons simply took the game apart in the first quarter piling on four goals against a paltry three  behinds. Even when Membrey was going to score a major right on the ¼ time bell from 15m out in front, he failed to bypass the outstretched hands of Har

    COVID PROOF FENCE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne fans breathed a sigh of relief last Saturday when their team managed to beat Hawthorn and the Covid19 outbreak that left it without coach Simon Goodwin and five premiership players – Luke Jackson, Kysaiah Pickett, Tom Sparrow, Harrison Petty and Alex Neal-Bullen. The 10-point win was meritorious not just because the Demons overcame the loss of the coach and key players but also due to the way in which they survived the tension surrounding the club in the 72 hours leading up to the

    YIPS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a bout of goal kicking yips and a last quarter Box Hill Hawks comeback to record a thrilling 7 point away from home victory on Sunday. With senior affiliate Melbourne fighting a Covid breakout and some injury concerns to their listed players, Casey turned to youth and called up locals Zac Andrewartha, Matthew Johnson and Harvey Neocleous to join Matt Buntine, a local product who was part of the inaugural GWS Giants list.  The team made a slow start but took co

    DEPLETED NOT DEFEATED by George on the Outer

    With Covid 19 ravaging the club, forcing the absence of five players from last week and some more premiership players still sidelined or returning after isolating, it was certainly a depleted Melbourne side that turned up to front Hawthorn in their Round 7 match up at the MCG. Normally, when a team loses ¼ of its soldiers, you would expect a less than favourable result but after the Hawks opened up a 2 goal lead in the opening minutes (and indeed, it could have been more) the Demon machine

    Q:  How do the Hawks come back after being 32-0 early, leading at every interval and then conceding nine goals in the last quarter to lose to the Swans by 41 points in the comfort and safety of their second home down in Launceston? A:  If they’re playing the Demons at the G off a five-day break, there are no comebacks. They simply won’t come back!

    TIGERS OUTPOINTED by George On The Outer

    Normally when one side outpoints the other, it is because of an emphatic victory.  Against Richmond in the annual ANZAC Eve Blockbuster, the win by Melbourne was anything but emphatic, as they managed to miss the “big sticks” an incredible 22 times!   The groans from around the ground as the Demons failed to put the Tigers away, eventually turned into ironic cheers for each successive point on the scoreboard.

    MOMENTS OF DOUBT by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons maintained their undefeated run and top spot on the VFL ladder after a bruising game against Richmond VFL at Punt Road yesterday but it wasn’t without its moments of doubt. The team was greeted by clear windless weather and sunny skies at Tigerland, a far cry from the prevailing conditions at their fortress in outer suburban Melbourne at Casey Fields.
