Geez, tough offseason for Norf...

North should rightfully demand the number one pick for him. Anything less is a lose for them. The AFL need to do something here. First Jackson, now JHF. Murmurs about Pickett. The draft was meant to be a means to even the competition, not a nursery ground for homesick boys. North have every right to be pee’d off about this, the same with us and LJ.

Gotta change the contracts for first rounder draftees. The top kids get drafted to the struggling clubs and want to leave straight away. A number one pick leaving after one season is not good for the game. 

not much that can do unfortunately, he is still contracted

judging from how unhappy jhf seems at north, i wonder if this could be the first time we simply see a player refuse to play for a year

Cam McCarthy sat out a year before moving from GWS to Freo

It’s already happened a few years back. Can McCarthy at GWS requested a trade to Freo in his home state of WA. It was rejected. He then returned to WA and sat out for a year. The next year he requested trade again and GWS traded him to Freo for stuff all. 

Players hold too much power and it’s ruining the game.

I reckon the Cam McCarthy trade is a cautionary tale for anyone thinking of going down that road. Looked a decent player early in his career but didn;t look the same at Freo. Sitting out the year was a bad idea i reckon

these 1-3 year players tho...demanding trades after they've played less than 50 games! pfft...try less than 20!!

Ssh, we may be interested in Finn Callahan, who we looked at in his draft year, but he went far too early for us and he was a Dees supporter.

Whether there's any truth to the rumours or not, I can't see Port prying Pickett (say that three times fast) away from us if they plan to land both JHF and Rioli this off season.

Probably no chance this year, unless we could add a player to Bedford and a good pick. Even that probably won’t get them interested, unless he could convince them he will leave next year.

If we're not we should be.  I know from a GWS point of view he was offered an extension beyond the standard 2 years he signed as a first round pick.  He hasn't signed that extension...

I wonder what it would take to get them interested, if we could get him interested. Bedford is a small entree, before the main meal.

Maybe we should help Port out and give them one of the first round draft picks we get for Jacko so they can package that up with their existing 1st pick to get JHF.    All we'd be looking for in return is Georgiades.

We'll have more leverage next year when he's OOC.  I doubt he does a JHF and asks to be traded in-contract.

I'm drooling at the thought of this. Was very impressive in his first game against us. Showed incredible poise and footy smarts way beyond his years. Can't see any chance this year with GWS likely losing Bruhn and Taranto but I hope we stick with it for '24. Would fit in perfectly on the wing.

Maybe GWS are offering Finn as a salary dump for pick 5….. I hear his base wage is backend and they are up to their ears in salary cap issues re signing Hogan.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
