Dylan Shiel



Recommended Posts

Before you all bite my head off im not one bit suggesting we chase him at all.

I heard Tom Browne (yes yes I know..)  mentioned that a prominent Melbourne club has shown interest in Dylan Shiel.

Only reason I bring him up was the Mark Williams connection. In a interview few weeks back Gawny jokingly asked Chocco what would it take to bring Shiel to the Dees and Choco smirked and said something along the line that he was tired up with his contract.

Wonder if it's us that's sounded out his management.

There is no way we would have the cap space and he is surplus to our needs

We would have to offer Essendon our first round pick for them to take up a large portion of Shiels contract. Maybe even first and second. Shiel is on 800k a year. I don’t see Essendon taking up half of his contact for just a first rounder. I can’t see a real workable deal. Maybe throw in Tom McDonald if he finishes the year well, as Essendon do need a veteran forward to decoy for Wright. Even then, the only way I see Shiel to Dees is if Essendon are desperate to get rid of him, and no other clubs are interested in him. But, the interest in Shiel is practical, as he is what we need, and most definitely appears on the outer at Essendon.

Sheil would be a solid player in a good side. He is an excellent kick from stoppages 

But his contract is ridiculous so it would have to be completely rewritten for us to have any interest 

he is doing nothing at Essendrug, but he is not alone

He’s an awful kick, it’s the biggest deficiency in his game. His defensive running is his second biggest issue but that’s an easier fix.

I thought Clarko and Wright had both left Hawthorn.

Surely its North.

No way we should be interested.

A few years ago sure but about to hit 30 and his main asset is pace which will be on the decline soon. His main weakness is defensive running, which is our teams MO, so he’s not a fit for us.

Must admit I have thought about this one 'dazz'...the only way we could take him is if EFC wanted him out and we got him for chips and they paid a big part of his salary. A bit of a Treloar type deal I guess.

Not sure I can see it happening though.

The question is we all know what we are going to get with Dylan, the mystery is what value they would be after from us.I would prefer Tom to finish here and serve the Club if he wants as he tactically of value..in my OP.

Watched him closely yesterday 

He was kicking very nicely. He can play when he wants too

I actually quite like him as a player, just needs to tidy up his disposal, but no doubt Choco would help with that. Ultimately for it to happen and him to come to Melbourne the Bombers would have to accept very little in return, and pay a good amount of his salary. 

I suspect North, St Kilda and Hawthorn would all be interested.

    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

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    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
