Go and Get JUH


Bigfoot

Recommended Posts

Why are we not in the conversation for JUH?

Hawks, Pies, Tigers, Dons and Swans all circling. Why the heck aren't we throwing the kitchen sink in the ring. Petty is likely to leave. TMac and BBB on the brink of retirement. Gus forced out of the game. We will have plenty of room in the cap.

Go out and get Jamarra Ugle-Hagan!!!

Every club will enquire. Its Round 1, much to go under the bridge before JUH signs anywhere. I think it's 50 50 him leaving simply because of the size of the offers that are going to come. Tiges are unlikely to be attractive, nor are Hawthorn or the Dons. I'd say if Sydney go hard he'll go there, after that we're as good a chance as any.

Let the media circus begin...

FWIW We do have a potentially more budget-friendly player in a similar mold in the making. One that so far is a hell of a lot more efficient in front of goal.

2023

Jamara - 35.35 (23 games)

JVR - 28.9 (20 games)

Now of course Jamara has been able to perform better by being released further up the field, terrific marking as a lead up forward creating lots of inside 50's etc. But JVR is a better and more willing tackler and performs well in the ruck so far.

What a dream it would be to have both!

First: Merge thread. I think there's be three of this exact thread already! :D

Second: JVR is better than JUH.

Third: Wouldn't mind having them both because I think they'd complement each other very well, but it would be awkward that to get him we would have to pay Ugle-Hagen double.

Fourth: Ugle-Hagan isn't the player our structure needs most urgently.

I remember Kelvin Templeton coming across to Melbourne as a champion full forward.

I think his goals per game average at Melbourne were pretty similar to his career average. Just got him banged-up. When going, easily in the best 10 footballers I've seen play the game.

The encumbent club has one big advantage in signing an existing player in their final contract year but it devalues as each week passes.

Injury !!

Do you take the 7 x $1M deal now or wait until season's end for the 6 x $1.25M but risk getting far less if you do an ACL.

Raises the question of whether players should be able to sign with new clubs during the season as happens in NRL

I’m wondering how high and long Landers’ would be prepared to go?

5 years, $1.25 million a year?

10 years, $1 million+ a year?

 

What figures would be the top end you’d be happy to go?

    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
