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?

Shoot - missed his career. Was he any good?

He had x factor, could play tall or small and was a champion.

    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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
