Redleg, if Melksham wants to play on next year I reckon we would be mad to not keep him on the list. He is exactly the sort of bloke to have driving his team mates in rehab, is a strong leader both on and off the field, and will create competition for spots in our 22 in the second half of the season. If word re McAdam's willingness to work hard are true then I cannot think of someone better than Melksham to encourage him to make the most if his short career is ideal - the bloke who missed years in his prime due to the Essendon doping program, didn't play in our premiership and did his ACL on the eve of this years finals campaign.

We can have that by making him an assistant coach, developing youngsters at Casey and maybe even playing for them, if he is able towards the end of the season.

Go walk through the streets of Adelaide and do the same.  

Is everyone on the streets of Adelaide talking about the McAdam trade?  I knew it was a bit boring there but that is a surprise!

Oh is that what you do, is it? Go walking the streets of Adelaide asking random people what they think of Shane

What's the difference between doing that and big footy??  Just people and their opinions.

Well I guess the big difference is that you’re NOT actually walking around the streets of Adelaide asking random people their opinions on Shane McAdam, and the other thing is a collated list of actual opinions from a large amount of random Crows fans.

Crows fans that don't care about McAdem going won't be on there.  So all you are getting is one side.  The people I talk to which comes up almost everyday at work or social events are not prompted by a forum. 

And some do rate him, but most don't and couldn't care less if he goes

That would be my whole point.  The sample size is one sided

Trav, unless you are a state politician, kissing babies your sample size is small. Even if you are a politician, your sample size is small. 
 

Does SA have a social scene? 😳

And big footy is a bunch of Crows nuffies who think a 50 game player is worth Petty.

Weidemen had played 50 games and kicked over 60 goals at the end of last yr, but not too many Dees supporters saying he is a gun and will make a top 4 fwd line

A bit like Grundy being worth pick 11. Even if Sydney are given a pick back…

And now, see 'Melksham set to play on in 2024' thread. McAdam to be one of his projects: 'C'mon, son; make it hard for me to get back in the team!'

McAdam for a future 3rd round is the right deal. He’s not in Crows plans and wants out. Not in their view of a best 22 player.  

Nor in our B22

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    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
