    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

This means there are no more uncontracted players.

Today is the closing date for F/S nominations and have yet to see anything on Brown so not sure we will be taking him on a F/S basis.  That doesn't mean we wouldn't draft him, just that we are not committed to do so.

Based on recent mix of 36 senior players and 6 A rookies we now have two senior list spots and two A rookie spots

 

**************************************************************************************************

Original Post (Nov 2022):

Re the chart:

  • Senior draftees added: Jefferson and Adams as Senior List players. 
  • A - rookie draftees added:  Sestan and Verrall
  • Games played has been updated.
  • Chandler is now officially a senior player.
  • A new addition to the chart is the 2023 draft picks of which we have 2 x F1 and 2 x F2.  Time to death ride Freo all the way in 2023. !!!

Assuming the 2022 mix of Senior/A-rookie players, we have no senior spots and 1 A-rookie spots.  However the club can change this mix to what is allowed if it wants to add a senior player eg a DFA ala Dunstan last year.  Otherwise we keep the 1 A-rookie spots for the SSP and mid season draft or not fill our quota of 42 players.

Quite a talented list of potential 'Milestone' games in the 2023 H & A season:

  • 200:  Hibberd, May, Gawn, Grundy
  • 150:  Neal Bullen, Harmes, Langdon, Lever, Salem, Brayshaw, Oliver
  • 100:  Spargo

If 150 games is the 'sweet spot' for an AFL player at their peak, we are there!!

In terms of 2023 contract renewals the potential outcomes are:

  • Retirements:  Hibberd, Melksham
  • Non-renewals:  Dunstan
  • Trades if requested:  Jordon, Neal Bullen.  Note:  Both are Unrestricted FA's so they could go to a club of their choice and we take the AFL compensation pick.
  • New contracts for most of the other players, particularly Rivers.
  • The special one is Kozzie's signature, hopefully sooner than later for 4 years ie his FA year (or longer) but would settle for 2 years.

alphabetical except for adams, gonna have to delete the whole thread and re start it, cant handle that ahaha, kidding love ur work luci, a great reference point all year long. i'd have a strong watch on harmes throughout the year if he continues to get moved around positionally he could seek a move, and ditto tomlinson again so we may less less uncontracted players depart than expected, big years required for 3rd year rookie Deak Smith, also chandler and jordon will want to keep taking steps forward. and where do dunstan and schache fit in come eos will be interesting too. definitely a flag list there tho!

Thanks LH great effort as usual, I would love to see you take over the MFC site, you leave them in the dust. A bit worrying that we have five Premiership players contracts expire in 2023.!!

Thanks DC Yes I think that I subconsciously left Hibbo off. That’s a lot of talent that we haven’t tied up though.

Of the 6 premiership players OOC this year the one I'm keen to see signed is Kozzie.

My guess is:

  • May will get a short extension likely on less $
  • Hibberd will most likely reitire
  • Jordon is an UFA so can look for opportunities elsewhere and probably will if he doesn't get regular game time.
  • ANB plays an important role but at some point we need to develop someone that can replace him
  • Rivers is important but we have others to step in.

While it would be good to keep the premiership list together, I feel some need to move on to refresh the team and make room for those pushing for selection at Casey.

imv we would be fine if any of the last four or even all four, moved on. 

On the bright side none of them would be re-contracted on big $ so the sal cap isn't really an issue on keeping them.

Kozzie is the one!

Didnt know there were half a dozen required players OOC this year.

Strewth.

No need to worry.  I'm sure the club has it all under control and we will see new contracts for who we want to keep rolled out in the coming months.

Based on recent media McVee's and Rivers' contracts are in discussion, Jordon has put off negotiations and Kozzie's contract is looking encouraging.  Chandler turned down offers from Adelaide two years ago so doubt he will go anywhere else now.

Its interesting that there is no news on Neal-Bullen.  He is an Unrestricted Free Agent so can go to a club of his choice if he chooses.

I don't mind if we lose some players be they in or out of contract as we need to find room for the up and comers.  This will mean some established players will find new homes.  C'est la vie for a club with good drafting, excellent development and on field success.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
