Yeah, have to say it's a strange move from West Coast to begin with. 

Free agent. Doesn’t cost them any draft or player collateral.  He’s got genuine Pace to attack or use defensively. Suits WA conditions. Band aid solution for them whilst they start to rebuild.

Yeah it's more like a proven stop gap solution to help them along in their rebuild even though it might not be long term.

In other words, you've got no idea of whether he did have a contract offer earlier in the year. What's your source?

If he's devastated with being pushed out, I doubt that it's true. And based on the compo pick we're likely to get, WCE aren't paying him huge dollars.

None of your business where I get my information from.  Just because you don’t like what you read, doesn’t make it untrue.  So jog on buddy because you are the only person who has no idea.

Good pickup by West Coast but sad to see him go, was a great servant to the club.

Actually I asked about your source when you first said he was offered a contract and you never replied. So I to call BS and you can jog on. You would be better off to just fess up that you were mistaken.

Was he? Jon Ralph 'On the Couch' a few weeks ago stated that the club had put a two year deal in front of Jayden.

Well if that's what his source was just come out and say that.

or he can keep his source to himself and keep providing information.  He has some form from the past and gets some inside info. if you don't want to read it either ignore him or block him but others like me want to hear it

I totally agree, Layz. It’s always going to be about the club. And rightly so. I’m (almost) always v sad when a player leaves. I regard our players as like sons and I liken their departure from the club to them leaving home. Ordinarily it’s like when my (real) son left home and now lives in Footscray. But with Jayden it’s like when my other son - also real :) - left home and now lives in Warsaw. And no matter how many times this happens… 💔 It never gets any easier.

What do you expect him to say "I'm Jason Taylor's brother-in-law*"?  Just accept that @Demons11 has some solid info from an anonymous source.

* Likely to become accepted fact on DLand now, sorry  ....

Completely agree and I said to Mrs Dw; Smith better be available for 23 games next season because that is who has pushed Hunt out. 

This was always going to be a difficult year considering who was out of contract and the fact we need to find 3 draft spots every year. I will need some convincing that Melksham and Hibberd will  perform at the required level all of next season. To my mind Bedford might of signed for 3 years if Melksham was retired. Essentially we are granting a player one more year at the expense of a player we offered 3 yrs to and who is still very young and raw. Is giving an ageing player one year worth the potential of developing a young player?  

 

We have enough open list spots already. If we delist Melky and Hibberd we are replacing them with picks 50 and 70 on 2 year contracts. Keeping them on minimum 1 year contracts as depth allows them to be delisted this time next year while pick 50 and 70 doesn't allow this option.

Seeing as Lamb confirmed it I can now get the tissues out.

When I signed up here I had Frosty and Hunt listed as two of my fav players. Love watching a bit of dare and dash even though the output was a bit inconsistent.

At this time of year I am keen to hear any inside information even if it is from Bill’s cousin Jamila who overheard it at the supermarket so please keep posting those in the know and even those not in the know but are acquainted with Jamila.

Hunt and Frost were two of your fav players??

Whats your favourite stat? Clangers?

Watching the footy must have been an act masochism for you.

You would have loved the Neeld Era; we couldn’t hit a target…

And so forth…

They certainly are! In general, Poles LOVE Aussies. They think we’re exotic. Let’s let them believe it. 😁

I left a heap of Dees stuff there a couple of years ago - tea towels, beanies, scarves, posters etc. - for my son’s father-in-law who’s sports-mad and who’d given me similar but for Legia Warszawa, his soccer team. He gave some of the Dees stuff to kids in a tiny village and apparently they are now Demons fans, albeit without choice.

I love it when Posters on here demand to know a Source. 
I was told on August 20 that LJ was definitely going, but why say anything, it wasn’t worth the hassle. 
i was also told LJ loves the Demons and has no bad blood at all. 
Trading is now a part of the game. We must get a good deal coming back 

and no i will not reveal my source under any circumstance

aha., Confirming I did not love the Neeld era.

It's hard to explain, my first love is the game of Football (soccer).

Guess they just reminded me of pacey wingers  taking on opposition players and marauding up the field. So I've got a soft spot for players who exhibit a bit of dash and dare. Find it entertaining 

Also with Frosty you never knew what was coming so it was always exciting!

    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.
