Stuff all besides the cap space it'll open up

I’m not sure about that. If a player is contracted and retires as far as I’m aware his salary is still part of the TPP. Possibly the reason both TMac and BBB are going around again.

Nothing, we were the ones that signed him on a long term deal knowing he could be done at any moment.

Medical retirement should mean Gus is taken care of by the league and not salary cap.

The only other thing we should’ve got / should get is access to a replacement player by the SSP.

It’s crazy to have the deadline last week and Gus announced now. Provision should be made for medical retirements before the first bounce of the season proper.

Brayshaw is a young man with a uni degree. He's retiring from footy not life.. He'll get a well paid MonFri job easily. Why compensation?  For what?

AFL/tribunal found Maynards act was legal.

Case closed. Its disgusting what happened but no-one in the AFL cares.

Brayshaw knew the risks but underestimated Collingwood.

I believe Brayshaw was set up in the QF. Maynard elevated himself straight at Brayshaws head.

CEO tricky Gil hid under his desk that week. Maynatd was always getting off.

Its all over now.

I regrettfully agree we'll get bugger-all out of the AFL - a list spot if we are lucky.  On a more general note, surely the AFL in introducing a new rule after the Maynard 'incident' is essentailly admitting some sort of liability.

Frankly my dear I couldn't give a damn what Maynard thinks about anything. I have a strong view about the reckless intent of that incident. I'm not going to discuss it any further. 

I am

Can we request Maynard to be dressed in sackcloth and walked through the streets whilst people throw fruit at him and hurl abuse?

Or take him for a trip to Romsey Manor for a mushroom lunch prepared by Uncle bitters

I always thought it was a pregame set up to take Gus out knowing how important he was to our set up

I presume it opens us up for mid season selections - most likely for #10 and #29

Mid year selections,    JT should get another helper sign the very best young talent, before next years draft, We will not be competing against all the other clubs   not all will have spaces.

No doubt The Filth took out Angus in that game

Premeditated plan executed 

They all loved it

Eddie shouted “Justice”

These are the [censored] called Collingwood 

Young Demons may now understand how much they must be despised and Hated for eternity 

Don’t get me started on The AFL

Different rules for medical retirements and additional special rules for concussion

Not much use getting a top up player now in the sense that there would be few with the required quality or match fitness available. If there were I think the AFL would look favourably

Agree 100% and this is why I’m imposing a media ban on myself for season 24. I will come here and listen to the DL pod and that’s it.

The profound lack of courage by the tribunal to suspend Maynard and the subsequent hypocrisy of the afl to outlaw the act were the final straw. And now the salivating of the populist media over the Joel smith debacle… I can do without the angst.

If he had retired at the end of last season then I think the MFC would have retained Harmes.

Far more likely we would have kept James Jordon IMO

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
