I hope I am wrong, and we do need some experience coming in to cover what we are going to lose.  But he screams poor work ethic to me and have heard the same thing about him from within the club too

Adelaide supporters on Big Footy are pretty salty to lose him ...

The clarion call of the overtly negative and unfair.

Allow me to be more optimistic.

I am positive we don't need him.

Shane McAdam is a like for like replacement for Jake Melksham, he is hard at it, can take a mark and can kick a goal. He fills a hole in our list, he has his supporters and detractors will Shane succeed, I genuinely Hope so. If he fails it hasn’t cost us a lot to find out. Good luck Shane.!!!

Very average.  Can kick goals but is lazy and gives away free kicks.  

He is Fritsch cover and that is it.  And the way he is leaving the crows worries me too, just an average footballer who thinks he is better

Why would you not think this has all been thoroughly discussed and evaluated by the MFC staff? Burgess and the MFC parted on very good terms. If there was a serious problem with McAdam’s attitude, it would have been well and truly flagged by Burgess. Obviously the media will beat-up any actual information around something like this. 
 

As for “thinks he is better” what are you basing that on?

If we get McAdam as expected, then that should be it for Melk, as we still have Spargo, ANB and Chandler with Woey, Howes and Laurie to come and possibly AMW and Sestan, if they can take the leap.

It would be silly keeping Melk at his age, with his ACL keeping him out for most, if not all of next season.

Rubbish. I’ve literally just finished reading plenty of Crows supporters on Big Footy who are disappointed to see him leave, and frustrated they couldn’t get the best out of him.

The fact he thinks the advice given to him by the coaching staff isn't applicable to him!

Rubbish, I live in around them.  They are happy to see the back of him!

Go read the Big Footy thread and find out how wrong you are for yourself. 

Is a good reason I never go on Bigfooty

It’s always hard when a player chooses to leave your club it certainly rankles a lot of supporters but also saddens those that wanted him to stay. It’s an emotional issue and we have fresh experience of these feelings.!!

I seldom go there either, but I went there specifically to gauge the reaction of Crows supporters. 

They are not all “happy to see the back of him”. A few are. Many are not.

Average goals per game reads well. He has been described as having pace, good defensive qualities and has an excellent leap and can mark the ball consistently. Kicks the ball straight too.
 

With only 50 games under his belt, he maybe ready to take his game to another level. His age is irrelevant as he was a mature age recruit. Reads very similar to Fritta. We all new Fritta’s ability before he exploded as a forward.
 

Word around the city of churches is they see his abilities and potential too.

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.

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

    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

    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
