Agree.

I watch Jordan get the ball a fair amount, go back look for options, ignore options, then wait and surprise surprise kick it long into forward pocket.

if he kicked it to Charlie 3-4 of his possessions, then we’d end up with 3-4 much better possessions going int o our forward 50!

Part of JJ is that he is not forceful enough about moving the ball and Spargs leads are probs oh so quiet he doesn't give enough sound or direction to the kicker. The Lachesis should be over all this and change it instantly.

selwood looked like a player retiring in the last quarter last night and he gets to go out on the highest high. he was a [censored] to play against and a massive sook but he was a world class leader and a tough combative warrior so fair play to him

He's a f!@g, and the thought that he may have played his last game makes me feel warm inside.

No more small forwards or small defenders for me 

We have Hibbo Riv Salem Hunt Bowey D.Smith and Mcvee

We have Kozzzy Spargo ANB Bedford Chandler Laurie AMW 

Currently oversubscribed in my view 

I’d like to bring the ruck/forward option to replace LJ, plus another skilled speedy midfielder (like a Chad Warner type) to run and provide good entries into forward 50.

Our small forwards are ordinary apart from Kossie. We definitely could improve that part of our list. 

Another winger would also be desirable.

It goes to show that you need strong leaders to win a premiership.

??? Pies linked to Mcstay, Tom Mitchell, Fiorini, Hill , Frampton ??? How do they pay for DEGOEY and still offer $$ to offer clubs players.  Surely most of the Grundy dump goes to pay for Mcstay.  (How much were the Brown brothers getting … assume it was fairly basic contracts).

Cap increases by about $600k next year. Pies have few players in their prime. Grundy money goes a long way.

So glad we can do them a favour.

Does the Hawthorn fallout include Karl Amon looking somewhere else other than Hawthorn?

He'd certainly be handy to pair with Langdon's run, Bowey and Salem's ball use.

Does the Hawthorn fallout include Brad Hill looking somewhere else other than North Melbourne?

He'd certainly be handy to pair with Langdon's run, Bowey and Salem's ball use.

Absolutely not worth the cost unless the Saints payed a massive portion of his salary - Could we get him for a 2nd round pick and 600k a year for 3 seasons? It's comparable to Amons salary offer, however the sticking point is the pick trade difference.

I'm still a fan of us taking on Jack Bowes contract, restructuring it and getting that pick 7 from GCS, and playing Gus/Jordan on the wing again.

Hill has looked shocking at the Saints, genuinely scared of contact

There have been those moments, but you can't just point to them and label the whole 2 seasons shocking. He's also looked fantastic at times, thrived at half forward and on the wing when their mids were actually winning it and using him. 21 disposal average and would be better utilised on an mcg wing with our structures and ball winners.

Hey mate. Has there been any word yet on next years salary cap? I haven't heard anything which is strange seeing there's a trade period coming up. Where did you hear $600k? Cheers.

Definate No  NO NOOOOOOO!

I suppose his foot skills wouldn't really fit in. Here I was thinking we need speed and good disposal added into our best 22. Apparently we just need grunt on the wing.

Edit: Just to reiterate, I'm in favour of getting jack bowes, pick 7 and 13 and keeping gus/Jordan on the wing. But as I said, if the club is so keen on Amon, why not Hill?

I’d like to keep that money set aside for a 5-year deal out for Zac Butters at end of 2023.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
