  1. AFL Trade Whisperer @AFLTradeWhisper · 5h #whispers Jye Caldwell will nominate St. Kilda, with negotiations continuing on length of offer. A great get for a young, building Saints...
  2. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-04-12/victoria-coronavirus-state-of-emergency-extended-to-may-11/12143168 Mr Andrews said the state of emergency was now due to expire at midnight on May 11. It had been due to expire on April 13. So, May 12th at best, for the next training report, lads. Hope you’re all ok
  3. Merry Christmas Demonlanders. Many thanks to all involved in running this forum. May the boys create heaps of magic on the field in 2020. Go Dees!
  4. MELBOURNE Pick 3 Luke Jackson declared to foxfooty.com.au at the draft combine that he wanted to play Round 1. But considering his preferred position (ruck) and the fact a dual All-Australian (Max Gawn) has worked so well as the solo ruckman in recent years, it’s hard to see him getting an opening-round debut against the Eagles. Same goes for Kysaiah Pickett, who has a sensational highlights package but is very raw — and likely to still be very raw by Round 1. But Melbourne’s Round 1 bolter could be its Pick 32 Trent Rivers, whose kicking and decision-making during his draft year was outs
  5. Agree with many , this kid can be anything. Gotta love Preseason at Demonland, hope rules! https://afl.draftcentral.com.au/player/trent-rivers/
  6. As I have posted before "The year we had to have" has allowed Pert the opportunity to go thru the entire organisation, an 'Off Field' rebuild. So much support now for Goodwin that hopefully he can prosper and with that more wins and a stronger culture.
  7. Together with Dr Peter Brukner (world-renowned Australian sports medicine clinician and researcher) What an awesome world leading Medical & sports science combo!
  8. MFC has locked in Harmes, hence eliminated any threat of losing him at end of 2020. Maybe backended the contract to free up salary cap space for potential short term future deals. Glass half full or half empty.
  9. FWIW - Got it from the very top of medical today. They were asked to have a look at him and believe they are a chance to get him right. Still a 50/50 proposition once the loads begin

  11. Wikipedia - Early life[edit] Elliott lived in Dongara, Western Australia before his family moved to Queensland. His father died when he was a teenager and his family moved to Euroa, Victoriawhere he played for the Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup. In 2011, he was invited to play two games for Collingwood in the Victorian Football League (VFL).[2]
  12. Josh Mahoney chat this morning on Trade radio https://mde.whooshkaa.com/show/9121/episode/441739.mp3 Im a fan of this trade but my gut feel(FWIW) after watching & listening to him after his chat at Collingwood yesterday is that he will stay there.
  13. "One of these is Adelaide key defender Alex Keath. Keath started the year in what was bordering on All Australian form before probably tailing off a little in the second half of the season, but still appears to be a quality option in that part of the ground", quote. https://www.theroar.com.au/2019/08/27/all-cake-no-icing-three-offseason-strategies-to-fix-the-dreadful-demons/
  14. Melkshem is one of our better finishers and will make a difference up forward once he returns (Hopefully only a few weeks after the bye!) Go Dees😂😂😂 B658BC78-E5C3-414D-8C32-4E6846DB0FF5.mp4
  15. One of the positives to come out of the 'Year we had to Have' is the new game style that is more defensive based. We have only been playing this style 3-4 games, hence IMHO this is what Harmes was referring to. Even though we had a good run in the finals last year, the prelim & the first few games of 2019 our game style, as we all know, was so easy to score against. Without the form & injury disaster that has been 2019, would we have adopted this new plan 'B' that will hold up better in finals??
  16. It’s on now. Steve May speaks so well. Gawn is always a laugh
  17. http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2019-02-15/misson-enters-his-final-chapter Will be interesting to see the eventual new fitness setup
  18. The Flip side is that they were all carrying these injuries into matches hence limiting performance in some way. It may take 3-4? games to get our best team on the park but at least they may all be in a physically better place by the pointy end of the season. Go Dees!
  19. 100% agree. He has a steely resolve and love the quality of the person. His potential is huge considering the Talent he has around him at the MFC this year. He has mentioned in the past how he'd love to play in the style of Alex Rance but was limited due to the young backline at the Suns. How exciting!

  21. Dunstall sat there on quietly on fox footy post match whilst the Roosy and King talked us up. I thought he was stewing that Dees would be up against his beloved Hawks next week. Then he said that was the toughest MFC outfit he had seen in the 20 years as a footy commentator!
