Hunt is gone, which is pretty sad, especially given he will leave for an unused pick. Injury got him at the wrong time, otherwise he’d be a premiership player. Again, we better be picking up some players from other clubs to replenish this depth. 

i would bet we'll bundle the pick with something else to do something

I’m not my happy about this move at all. Yes he’s not in our best, but he had what most players didn’t and that was raw pace. 

So did Frost, but the club was happy to let him go in the name of cleaning up back half turnovers (which were a bigger problem then than now tbf), so I wonder if this could be similar in a way?

Frost was something else. His body worked faster than his brain. He had athleticism and was skilful, unfortunately couldn’t combine them at the same time. 
 

We tried to keep him on the cheap - prefer he stayed in the squad ahead of others tbh.

 Nah, backline has done just fine without him I reckon.

I don't get this move from Hunt unless it's purely about contract length - did we offer him 1 year only? He was playing 1s pretty much all year and last year and I think he is going to struggle at the Eagles.

Gut feel is it might be about next year's plans. Perhaps Bowey was going to be ahead of him next year, or maybe we've got someone in the pipeline to play half back? Sounds like Eagles had been into him during the year, and there was a rumour the Hawks had as well, so talks were happening a while out it seems.

Lowball over from the club so had no option, more money and longer contract at the Weagles

He is also going to a lowly club. Maybe he is going back to losing  most games next year. Like when he started?

It’s amazing how chuffed the Eagles fans are with recruiting him. I don’t think he has ever been particularly highly regarded by opposition fans, but he is a superstar all of a sudden if you read social media. I really like Hunt, but he has serious limitations, they revolve around decision making and ball use. He was a very late bloomer and wasn’t really rated at Brighton Grammar, until his senior year. His pace set him apart, but he just lacked a little footy nous

Not if we offered him a Contract, which doesn't appear to be the case. Would much rather keep, definately!

You have a truly bizarre taste in footballers. You like a guy that gets it 10 times and can run quickly, but you don't like a guy that gets in 10 times and is an elite kick.

I reckon about the only one you've got right, PF, is Clarry, and Blind Freddy would have got that one.

That's your first mistake, footballers are commodities that are to be bought and sold 😛

Oh and they're also role models and not entititled to lives of their own. Whenever I see player X out having a beer I wonder why he isnt training at that exact time.

Oh and why don't they care as much as we do when they lose? Based on no proof whatsoever. 🤣

I had a pic taken with that commodity tonight and I told him I was sad and he said “why’s that?” and then I remembered I was a little drunk and just said “never mind.” 😁 I got pics with many of the commodities and in all of those it’s smiles all round but in the Jayden pic, nary a smile to be seen. 🙁

It’s about freeing up cap space and at the start of the year, he was unfortunately one of the players in the group that were potentially going to be let go.

    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
