We've done ok to upgrade our class and X factor with McAdam and Billings in and Harmes and Jordon out.....got so many grunt players it worthwhile trading in a bit more skill

I think this assessment is good. Upgrade in quality for both assuming Billings is fit.

A worry that McAdam is 28yo and only played 50 games. Am I missing something?

I'd rather have Billings than McAdam.

And can we have both?

The Billings method probably will lead to less scoring opportunities in comparison to other methods.

But when it doesn’t work as planned - straight through the middle

Billings has kicked 108 goals and 123 points in his career. For a skilful player he’s a dreadful kick for goal and his field kicking doesn’t stack up either.

We’re getting McAdam - 72 goals, 40 behinds for some forward line depth. 

If we had faith in his body he could do Hunter’s job but we don’t need another Hunter.

Of the perennially injured saints players I’d prefer Dan McKenzie who was looking like a very handy quick wingman before his body blew apart. 

An other day an other sook from you

Definite skill upgrade on Harmes and Jordon, but he doesn't have the work rate of either of them. Horrible yips in front of goal, and he will have to do a power of work in the pre-season to convince me he has the 2-way running demanded by Goodwin. My hope is that one of Woewodin, Moniz-Wakefield or other will take the Hunter wing, and Billings might be fighting them or Spargo/Chandler for a spot.

Happy to be proven wrong.

Absolutely rapt with this pick up. i reckon he's going to find his way into our team for round 1 and stay there. he's an upgrade on Spargo in every measure, he's got the kicking skills, but he will be 10 times more damaging and will slot more goals

My key takeaways; Paul Connors rates us. He doesn’t rate St Kilda. 

He makes a lot of cash from the Dees. He manages some of our best players. 
Also nice of him to acknowledge that SOS woke up in time to chat to Melbourne 😂

A lot of Dlanders were on the Jack Billing’s bandwagon early 👍 I wasn’t aware of our interest until late today. Looks like another good pickup., certainly helps cover some of our depth concerns, hope he is as fit and firing as his manager suggests.

Welcome to the MFC Jack Billings I hope you get a clear run at it at the Dees we could certainly use more skills in front of the ball, look forward to seeing you out on the G next year.

I think I'm right in saying he was a mature age recruit.

Played his first game at 23 IIRC

New babies will be created after his exploits on the field are realised and celebrated in around 11 months time.

Great bit of late business by Lamby and Co.

    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

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
