I agree with what everyone is saying.  he's a good player and has that burst of speed which is good. But we don't have the money. I would however be interested in targeting Shuey from WCE for a 1 year rental. I think he would be much cheaper and has the finishing that we lack sometimes. And he's clutch in big games.

I really wanted us to chase Shiel when he was up for trade at GWS. He was a stoppage beast with explosive power out of the contest. Thankfully we didn’t and thankfully we have Oliver and Trac instead. 

A bit the same. I thought he was fantastic early on at the Giants and was hoping we could prise him out of there. Unfortunately he was playing a lot better at 19 than he is at 29. Still has talent, pace & power and could be a significant asset in the right environment. It appears that's not Essendon. Economically, it can't be us.

yeah, definitely injury prone. would come super cheaply. he's a significant upgrade on James Jordon but yeah obviously when healthy. Nonetheless, I do hope we get involved in a few raids in the off season. We're a destination club for some good players that are towards the end of their careers.

Shiel is discussed in Point 5 of this article:  six-points  It talks about his strengths being assets at GWS but underutilised at Essendon where his weaknesses are then exposed.

"The simple truth is this: Essendon, a young team that plays a short-kicking game and seems intent to move the ball slowly towards sole tall target Peter Wright, has no use for a player like Dylan Shiel."

He has several years on his contract reported at $800k pa.  If Ess can't use him effectively that is a lot of coin out of their sal cap.  Like other teams that want to do sal cap dumps for a seemingly 'non-essential' player they may be better off cutting their losses and accept an average draft pic ala GWS (Patton, HWSNBN), Coll (Stephenson, Phillips), GCS (Brodie).  If they want a good pick eg 2nd round they need to pay part of his salary for a few years ala Coll (Treloar).

But then it is Dodoro clubs will be dealing with.

We are not one of the teams mentioned where he might be needed.

Now let’s go and comment on how much we need to keep Dogga and Clarry on their respective contract renewal threads.

At yesterdays indigenous jumper presentation, Ky-ya explained the emu footprints were a symbol of moving forward as a club as emus can’t move backwards. I wonder if this is Shiels nickname

Clearly not an example of Shiel be Wright.

Sadly for all of our lols they'll improve in this area with Mahoney running the show.

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

Maybe.  I think Dodoro and Mahoney are separate organisational units whereas at the Dees the two were combined under Mahoney's jurisdiction (until the 2020 restructure when they were split ala Ess). 

A fly on the wall at Ess might be fun if the two need to negotiate what they think is best for Shiel or anyone else.

Would be interesting to see how much of the AFL media would retain their job if they were made to work under a zero tolerance policy for dishonest reporting, and they had to be able to back up everything they report with reliable sources. 

Most just see a situation, make a string of assumptions, and when lightning strikes and their guess turns out to be right they pat themselves on the back for it.

    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
