Delisting/Out of contract targets



Recommended Posts

Callum Brown and Issac Chugg from Collingwood delisted and worth a look.

Brown has shown it at AFL level for periods and would be handy depth on the wing which is an area we are shallow in.

Chugg is similar type player too.  could be good cheap options

Brown played some excellent VFL footy off half back as a smart, skilled distributor  this year, but his combination of lack of size and not much speed doesn’t really appeal. I don’t think he’d hold up on a wing.

Chugg’s a fairly unremarkable half forward, I think we’ve got enough of those as is.

haha, was very good in the VFL, purely as depth in position.  could even put them on the rookie list

would rather we take a punt on someone from outside the afl system, if he's been deemed not good enough by the pies then theres probably a reason for that and we're better off looking elsewhere mature or 18 for some untapped potential

Has Daniel Turner already been upgraded off the rookie list? If not I suspect he would also be a candidate 

when he signed it was 1 yr rookie 1 yr senior list set up

The point is depth,  getting someone from outside the AFL system mean starting from scratch.  its purely for coverage!

Sign him on a rookie contract for 2 years whilst our kids develop and then de-list, if we're lucky he takes his chance and becomes out 2nd wingman.

Franky Evans kicked 30 goals in the VFL for the cats this year. Won’t be replacing Stengle, Miers or Close any time soon and Ollie Henry potentially coming in as a mid sized forward too.

If we want to replace one of Spargo or ANB with a small forward with a touch more  size who in theory can be more of a marking target/crumber and kick more goals he fits the bill. 

I think he’d be a nice option rather than another year or two of Bedford still not quite being up to it or giving us anything different to our first choice options.

Kicked 5 against Casey which is more than some entire teams did!

I missed that, but also no proof it’s a done deal, and that came before the Rioli stuff. No reason we couldn’t table a similar offer and save him moving states.

Any interest at all in Jackson Nelson as a lockdown defender, Hibbo replacement?

Delisted by WC, 26yo, 100 games, has some size at 187cm, reputed hard trainer and good character.

Yup, I like this.  He has also played defensive wing at times this year for WC.  Is a versatile player for nothing.   

Narkle is another player id look at,  he has something,  consistency is his issue but has had some big games at the top level.  Probs not the type of player we need and he probably wont go to a club where he might not get a game,  but if cheap enough worth it I think.

We're trying to improve our list not make it worse.

I haven't seen much of Callum Brown but he looks so slightly built. Does he have a decent tank? I just can't see much for him other than a Caleb Daniel type distributor role off back. Can't see him running through an AFL midfield week after week.

He’s either 90% of Spargo at half forward or a less upside version of Bowey as a half back

Daniel Howe from Hawks is also a good depth option for our backman stocks.

98 games, 26yo played 9 games this year.  20 games under Clarkson last year.  Clearly not in Mitchels age demographic.

I don’t mind him. He’s not great - always lacked a little speed or skills, but we could get him fitter and doing a job. He was one of the covid nightclub guys which would’ve put him off side at the eagles.

If they sign Hunt looking for speed we could get Nelson for free, give up some speed but get back a little more skill. 

He might be the best half back I’ve seen available so far.

    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

    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
