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.

Gawn will play well into his 30s (unless he gets a bad injury- heaven forbid!), but the rest have all had injury woes in the past and will start to drop off in a season or two.

It’s also why we need to keep Jackson.

Imo Petty will take over May's role as no 1. KPD at the end of his career. Makes him one of our most important players short and long term

Given he is unlikely to make it as a forward is there and chance the 24yo, 197cm Sam Weideman could make it as a tall back? He is with us till at least the end of 2023.

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.

Surely Moniz-Wakefield should be some sort of priority. I reckon he's showing the most potential of Melbourne-listed players playing for Casey. I also think Bedford should get an extension and you would think Smith as well.

i'd imagine AMW will get the full 3yrs as a cat b given his early signs as we don't appear to have any other zone selections in the next 12 months or so that would be worth displacing him

For the signing of Charlie Spargo for 3 more years.   Signed up until his RFA year.  Love Charlie!

image.png.9955733e852aec321142d005b1cdac47.png

Only 3 premiership players OOC this year to sign up:  Brayshaw, Hunt, Hibberd, Jackson.

I so wish Hunt gets another contract or if not goes as a Premiership player. 

Laurie would be the only other OOC player (excl Rookies) that looks certain to get another contract.  Chandler will be upgraded to the Seniors list.

Agree on Hunt LH he is a true utility forward back wing and now has reinvented himself as a lockdown back, deserves at least two more years.!!

Can we have a line of sight of the cap space?

It would be good to see if we are going over the space or close to in the coming years.

Hunt wasn't a Premiership player, Hibberd was. I would imagine at this stage Hibberd is unlikely to get a new 1-year contract unless he can get over his injuries, play some Casey Football and get back into the senior side (and I can't really see him replacing Hunt at this stage). As it is  we have to find a spot for Salem.

Surely Bedford is a certainty to get offered another contract, and Smith.

The chart doesn't show that Hunt is a premiership player.  It does show HIbberd to be one.

My comment:  "I so wish Hunt gets another contract or if not goes as a Premiership player" was reference to my hope that he plays in a premiership, THIS YEAR!

Such info is closely guarded by all clubs.

What we do know is that all clubs have the same cap, they can spend +/- x% and bank the difference for future years.  And there are lots of techniques to move money around if the cap gets tight or there are spare funds in any year. 

Apropos this, Carlton are said to have plenty of cap capacity even tho they have signed players on mega $ in recent years, apparently by banking the cap in low spend years.

MFC are showing they are very proficient in keeping players and staying within the cap.  Happy to have them keep up the good work as I have no want to know cap details.

I believe clubs have to pay at least 90% of the salary cap every year to their players as a minimum.
I'm actually not sure where I heard this, or if it is even correct. 
Would you happen to know?

I believe it is 95%.  If a club underpays the sal cap by that 5% they can 'bank' two years worth.  They can then pay over 100% eg 105% for two years or 110% for one year.

eg if the cap is $13m and they spend 95% they bank $650,000.  Over two years that is $1.3m 'banked'.

So basically whenever the media say a club has a "war chest" ready at trade time, they mean the club has banked two years worth of 5%?

Essentially yes.  Plus the possibility of sal cap space created from retirements and trades that year.

Not to mention the ability to front-end or back-end contracts of individual players. Lots of moving parts and as we've seen with Collingwood it can come unstuck if you're not careful. Not a job I would envy.

Sorry Lucifers. I was referring specifically to your comment 'Only 3 premiership players OOC this year to sign up:  Brayshaw, Hunt, Jackson.' I read that as as past premiership players OOC this year to sign up and it mentioned Hunt but not Hibberd. I accept your 2nd comment (which you have quoted above) makes total sense re Hunt but you don't mention in your commentary (yiu do in thechart) that Hibberd is a premiership player that is OOC this year. Thanks for clarifying and a note of thanks for all your ongoing hard work in maintaining this chart. Much appreciated!

 BTW do you agree with my thoughts that Bedford is a certainty to get offered another contract, as well as as Smith?

This is the important point plus of course cap space created from retirements and trades mentioned by Lucifers. The potential 110% after 2 years of 95% could help but is more marginal.

Clearly Buddy's contract has created issues at the Swans, as has Grundy's at Collingwood (athough in the case of Buddy it has been money well spent). Supposedly Dusty is on $1.4m a year so clearly him leaving would free up a lot of salary cap space for  Richmond in 2023-24, so I don't think it's just a case of Hardwick's altruism that Richmond is  entertaining the idea.

I agree that being a list manager must be an incredibly clallenging but rewarding job (if you get it right). Gold Coast's stance in 2021 was to contract every player so they couldn't leave, but of course that creates it's own problems, like having to trade most of your draft picks to Collingwood at a discount.

Oops.  Yes, I got Hibberd and Hunt wrong - brain fade. 

I most definitely think Beddford deserves another contract but didn't put him my certainty ie 'must keep' category of this year's OOC players as we have other small forwards waiting in the wings:

  • Chandler: is actually contracted for another year.  He was courted by Adelaide last year but was offered a two year contract by us and stayed.  For the second year of the contract he must be promoted to the seniors. 
  • Laurie:  As a new draftee it is hard to see him not be given a chance at AFL level with another contract.

Kozzie and Spargo aren't going anywhere so where does it leave Bedford?  I agree he will be offered another contract but he will most probably get more elsewhere and become a regular 22.

That is all a bit clinical on my part.  On a more emotional level I love watching Bedford play and he has really taken his chances when selected.  And I never want to see a demon player leave our club.

I can see where you're coming from re Bedford. With every player of course it's just not a case of Melbourne offering them a short term contract and them accepting it. Bedford will want to play senior footy and the security of a long term contract/better money.

Joel Smith?

The other contract extension I think Narrm should be prioritizing is Jacob van Rooyen. He's definitely shown enough to extend beyond 2023. For all the other 2021 draftees it's too early (except Moniz-wakefield perhaps?). I'm still uncertain about  Rosman. He's shown some talent but is not really showing consistency. To  be fair to him, Laurie, (Declan) Smith & Turner the curtailed 2021 Season for Casey hasn't helped, but they have another 10 games plus finals in 2022 to make their cases.

I looked at OOC the list as 'must keep'.  Smith may again stay on a short contract but it would be good if his body could withstand more than a handful of games.

Next year's OOC bring a new set of contract challenges with so many premiership players and new draftees yet to get a chance.

Elsewhere posters have said the club expects to lose best 22 players altho looking at the contracts I can't see who they are likely to be.

But if our players get great development and outgrow the opportunities we have then I wish them well.  They owe it to themselves to make the most of short lived careers.

You have tables to update.

Updating the Tables, of course!

For Daw and Oliver.

Clarrie had one more year to go on his contract and would be a Free Agent.  The 7 year extension keeps him a Demon for another 8 years!!

It is fantastic that he has signed now which eliminates all the FA noise in 2023.  He can just continue playing great footy with no distractions.  He will still be only 32 when this contract expires.

Well done to Clarrie.

And best wishes to Majak.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
