We have the picks 

We have the goal kicking coach

Perhaps Haroldo would prefer life out of the Carlton spotlight...

The most important thing is cap space. I'm pretty sure we don't have much to lure anyone? Unless we lose some players (Jordon, Harmes, another) and find another club to take the last year of the contract of Tmac or BBB ?

Although I'm just guessing.

Did he not just sign like an 8 year contract extension until 2030?

Yep. Don’t let that get in the way of the discussion though 😜

We tried to get him and missed our chance. His contract is too big for us to take on now. We’ll need to look elsewhere or just continue to develop JVR and Jefferson.

No thanks, Choco might fix the kicking but he's not a heart surgeon. Harry looks like he's playing to preserve himself.

I think there’s only three forwards in the game that would be useful to us, Jeremy Cameron, Toby Greene and Rankine.

Not sure anyone else has the tricks to work in our stifling setup.

*on the assumption we still have Kozzie and Fritta

Curnow.

He's an absolute star forward who doesn't get enough credit especially as he is surrounded by poor individuals. 

Would happily pay him a mil a year.

Well down this year though. Bereft of confidence. His goal attempts last night were horrendous.

But he kicked 58 in 21 and 45 last year. He's a very good player and would fill a gaping hole for us. And there aren;t many options out there. Chocco will set him right.

Carlton need to shake-up their list and I reckon McKay could be sacrificed to bring in picks. He might just be gettable. 

Curnow is obviously the better player but he is ungettable. The hoards would burn down Ikon Park if he was traded.

True.

He would suit us well getting up the ground

Incredible that he simply can't kick a drop punt for a goal.

He is also dropping a lot of marks.

It’s probably just a form slump, but it does highlight the dangers of long contracts at big money, if you get them wrong, it can stuff up your list.

100%. He can be a stay at home gun, or a running Centre Half Forward. If he was in our forward line we’d win the flag for the next 5 years.

Mckay. No no no

I would be searching for a Mitch Lewis. Best young forward in the league right now (second only to Curnow imv) 

Gotta find another like him 


Lewis was drafted by Hawthorn with their second selection and seventy-sixth overall in the 2016 AFL draft.

1. Choco will fix him

2. Our midfield will provide much better delivery to him

3. Carlton will be desperate to get rid of him and will pay half his wage

4. JVR and Jefferson will take a few years to hit top gear

5. BBB and TMac clearly on the way out

All adds up to a strong YES

 

Not so sure about point 2.  
Or the second part of 3.

But yes, if the price is right and we get a sports psychologist to screen him first.  Not if he costs us players or too much cap space.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week. Binman will do his regular stats files segment for the game against the Bombers and will also preview the upcoming match against the Dockers. He will not be taking any questions. I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
