2022 MFC Delistings

Respect for Brown, a good honest footballer. 

In years to come, when you look up the definition of "journeyman" in the dictionary, Mitch Brown's name will be there. Something like 14 years for 79 games (plus 100 VFL games, or thereabouts). 

That is in no way meant to denigrate a fine footballer who tried his best. And that's all any of us can ask for.

Rosman was a great athlete but he didn’t have any footy IQ at all and wasn’t making any progress. 

Shame he didn’t get to play in the VFL grand final though.

Oskar Baker survives the first round of delistings. Can he hang on?

As they say in "Little Britain", the computer says "no!"

Reports Rosman is on the out. Can’t say I understand this when he has had some injuries and only been on the list two years. At 194cms one of the few developing talls we have. Was taken after McCreery and Walker who have had decent years and getting regular games. 
 

Strangely, the post was liked by JVR?

@Demonland

I just noticed that another Delistings related thread was opened a few hours ago on the Trade Board.  While technically it is about Delistings and targets generally it has defaulted to discussing mfc delistings/changes somewhat duplicating this thread..

We also have a Changes thread on the Trade Board.

Can there be some merging of threads. please?

If this thread remains maybe it is moved to the Trade  Board...

Few more to come you’d think. Got a sneaky feeling Goody’s mate Melksham May get another year

I’m told he will as well as Hibberd.

Probably makes sense when you look at the players out of contract next year, most of which we will want to keep. Trade in Grundy and acquire 2-3 players via the draft as high as possible this year, have added depth for another year before the form part of our mandatory delistings I'm 2023.

We need to make more than a couple changes. There are obvious gaps in our list, and if not addressed we will just be making up the numbers again. Too many players stalled in their development this year, and may have, in fact, reached their ceilings. It’s not enough to simply bring in 2-3 kids, plus Grundy. Grundy simply replaces Jackson. Yeah, we have a few to work with in the VFL, but we need to bring in 1-2 more experienced players. Look at what Geelong did! They targeted their weaknesses and get players in. We need to be active in that regard.

Mitch was a great club man and used to give a few of our stars the run round at training.eg Jake Lever. All the best and so glad you finished your career with a premiership. Maybe you could play a few games with the Old Mentonians and enjoy yourself next season..

Time to think about another Irishman; a mobile, tough medium tall. Then we will take pressure off our draft outcomes. Return airfare to a couple of our recruiters, please.

There are over 2/3,000 players around of virtual AFL standard in Australia some of whom  have stalled due to Covid but are ready for a challenge. 

Why spend $10,000 on Airfares on a 30/70 % chance on an Irish " stab in the dark" ?

We have AFL  plus VFL all interstate Style SANFLS etc, to consider.No name is banging in my head but JT and Lamby should have some if deemed that style player is required. 

Could  be an 18 yo bush pig or a 25 yo from a VFL background or even Patrick Dow from the Blues for some outside run as a more needed alternative.

Connor Nash is the prototype you seek but a pacy and classy outside runner better fits our needs IMO at this stage to insulate our draft choices and existing stock to  maintain our on the ball dominance.

Maybe keep this for official MFC delistings but there's plenty others for free agent/target talk.

Whatever has Hore  done since he left us (and being a former HBFlanker of some but not all skills ) who also has not very hard. played any or little footy for Kangas who he went to.

You may as well include Dean Kent in your memory lane of players who really didn't make it with us despite trying very hard. 

our judgement proved correct as we Won a flag within a short period and they failed to shine at their new Club in the meantime.

Interesting on Baker.  Surely he's untradeable, we'd have to put an offer in front of him to make that happen.

Congrats to Mitch.Brown on a fantastic career surprised they didn't give Rosman a rookie opportunity.

Unfortunately I can’t see Oskar Baker getting a new deal.
Likely delisting post the trade period  

I have liked his pace and energy but his skill sometimes let him down. Certainly one of Casey’s best this yearand key player in their premiership. He is too good for VFL footy.  Perhaps still could be AFL quality yet not at the Dees as he’s unlucky to be behind Langdon, Brayshaw and Jordon right now (plus we have Woey jnr and Howes coming through).  Could he be traded for a future 4th rounder?

    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

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    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
