i think Laurie has shown enough to warrant a few more years in the system.

Reasonably high draft pick with some class, nice distributor of the ball, shows poise and good decision making, also kicks goals.

To me he looks like a much classier version of ANB or Spago.....We need connectors and i am sure we will look better in following years with guys like Bowey and Laurie actually showing some care in delivery.  

Poise and class is something we severely lack....Last week it felt like we had one bloke that did not panic with ball in hand....Salem.

The AFL website is reporting that Joel Smith is closing in on a 2 year deal.  I think that will be the longest term he has had thus far so good on him. 

A month or so ago it was reported that Bedford had been offered a new contract but no news since.  Not sure if that means we are waiting to announce it or he is considering offers.

After his recent performance I wouldn't be surprised to see Melksham get a new contract.  I read somewhere that he would like to stay.

Thanks LH, No one wants to leave apart from LJ possibly, must get space for a couple of talls desperately need a forward and ruck to complement this great list off ours.!!

ps(Melksham and Hibberd deserve another year).

Not sure Hibberd will get one.  We have a few defenders who need to see some hope of breaking into the team in their own right rather than wait for an injury.  It may depend on what happens with Hunt and Tomlinson.

Who takes Hibbo's spot next year if he retires?

Depends on match ups:  Turner, Tomlinson for talls.  Hunt, Bowey, Rivers for small/mid players.

Updated for the much deserved contracting of Joel Smith for two more years.

Not many left un-contracted now.

Anxiously awaiting news on Hunt 🤔😟😐

Note:  the latest table is always shown at the top of this thread for quick reference.

With ND35, 41, 53, 63 and 70 available I can see us only using the first three until we know LJ gets us.

I think Baker and Rosman will be delisted and I also think that Tomlinson will be trade with a year left.

I think we will shovel whatever we get for LJ somewhere to get an established tall forward. 

Re-sign Bedford IF we think he will take someone’s role. Then 1 year deals for Melksham, Hibberd, and Hunt.

Looking ahead to end of next season - there are few to end their journey so bringing in kids this year for Melksham and Hibberd will hem us in as kids get guaranteed 2 year deals.

No dramas if we don’t get that key forward, just upgrade the picks, move money forward to next year, and try again next summer. Brown and TMac will be fine for 2023 IMO pushed by JVR (Weideman back up ruck competing with Smith or a cheap back up ruck from wherever).

Retire: M Brown, Daw

Delist: Baker, Rosman (train on)

Trade: Jackson, Bedford

That’s 6 list spots. Plus Hunt is every chance to find a home elsewhere if he isn’t signed yet.

Wait and see: Hibbo, Melk

Seek to move on Weid and Tomlinson but good luck finding homes for them.

We must sign Bedford the rest of the uncontracted players can and should leave, maybe Hibberd can stay on if he is happy to start the year in the two's.

Back 7

Lever, May, Bowey, Brayshaw, Petty, Salem, J.Smith

I would expect all those out of contract to be gone unless Hibbo decides to go around again. This assumes Jackson and Bedford choose to go. If Bedford goes we must retain Chandler in contract. Unless someone offers overs we must retain Tomlinson for defensive cover, if we choose to shift Petty forward or if May’s role changes if Hibbo retires. We need to develop some more kids and we can’t pay more for borderline 22 players like Hunt, Melksham.

I thought Chandler signed a 2 year deal with one year on the senior list.

Don't disagree but are you thinking of replacing them with similar level players or simply getting their salary off the book so we can prepay a few of the higher paid players.

For example we could take Ellison on a minimum contract and trade Tomlinson thus perhaps freeing up around $200k a year.

Weid would be harder

Would appear that exit interviews for fringe players post Casey GF will be tomorrow given no list change announcements today?

assume today was mad monday for most, probably exit interviews tomorrow/wednesday

Here’s my prediction for our initial off season moves. 

Delist: Baker, Melksham, Rosman (re rookie?)

Retire: Daw (Rookie) M Brown (Rookie)

Rookie Elevation 2023: Chandler


Leaving: Jackson

Possibly Trade: Bedford, Tomlinson, Hunt, Weideman

With Chandler probably being elevated from the rookie list there are three free primary list spots with Melksham delisted (maybe not) and Jackson leaving.  It’s likely we need one or two more to leave, depending on what we get for the Jackson trade and the possible movements of Bedford, Tommo, Hunt and Weid. We can also go into next year with less rookies and take one or two more onto the main list with Brown and Daw likely to leave. 
Hibbo showed enough to choose to go around again although I would really like Bowey playing seniors regularly next year. 

IMO our needs are, one senior ruck (apparently Grundy) and at least one developing ruck (more if Weid leaves), a KPF, quick skilful players with x-factor. 
I would prefer to keep the backline trio of May, Lever, Petty together so would look at trading out Tomlinson to help get a KPF. If that doesn’t happen then JVR must play next year with Petty forward and one of Smith, Turner or Tomlinson stepping up into Petty’s spot. Turner looks likely.
As crazy as it is to say given our paper thin rucks stocks and misfiring KPF if I could have one player in the league join us it would be Shai Bolton, we simply don’t have enough out and out game breakers to complement the hard workers of our midfield.

Updated for Rosman's delisting and M.Brown's retirement.

Shame for Rosman.  Delighted Mitch went out on a Premiership high.

Edit:  Tomlinson is contracted to 2024.  I will fix info in next version

Agree LH Rosman good size, long kick can take a mark, just injury prone and couldn’t get a good run at it.!!

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    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

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    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

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    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

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    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
