Welcome to Demonland: Shane McAdam

Recommended Posts

His highlights reel is impressive, but that's what highlight reels are for.

I see he wears number 23 at Adelaide.  If he's keen on that number, there's every possibility it may be vacant at Melbourne at the end of this season.

For a third-rounder as suggested?  I'm in.

McAdam's mooted move to Melbourne also opens up the possibility of a three-club trade between the two SA clubs and ourselves, involving Grundy to Port plus other players and draft picks being involved.

Do we need to trade, he is out of contract and want's to leave?  Crows have no bargaining power here

Unless he's a free agent, some sort of trade would need to take place I think.  (cf Luke Jackson)

Alternatively, he could nominate for the draft but then he would have no say where he ends up.

yeh, im not sure he is wanted like Jackson.  Let him walk like Marting did to Carlt back in 2019.  I just really don't like this, he isn't close to our best side.  And the way he is leaving Adel if true, is messy

Really great sign, on the back of koz resigning, an Aboriginal player wants to come to the dees.

Suggests they have really got the cultural safety stuff right.

Compare and contrast to the crows.

Their most popular player, tex, gets suspended for racist comments about an Aboriginal player and then there is the whole camp nightmare and a loved figure like Eddie betts leaving the club because it the cl7b is not cultural safe.

Again, he would have no control over which club chooses to draft him.  Risky business.

Yes, but that's not the actual case.  A 28 year old 50 game player that has burnt his old team.  Not many lining up for him i wouldn't think.  just hope dees play hard ball and give up nothing for him. he isn't worth anything

I'm far from excited but I guess with both Dunstan and Melksham doing ACLs 😭 there might be a need for the extra mature mid-sized body around. Rarely goes goalless.

It is always hit and miss with the top-up type players;

Dunstan, Grundy, Hunter, Tomlinson, Brown, and Langdon being our recent run, which you'd have to say has given us a great overall result for very little trade cost.

A side thought on this is, if we are already bringing in an additional depth player through trade, just how many list spots do we think we're going to have open? Who is on the retirement or trade out queue already?

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
