    Sorry I know it wasn’t directed at me but I couldn’t remember the trading they did in 2015 draft to get Oliver so l looked it up. Melbourne gave up Pick 6 Pick 29 and Our 2016 first round pick which ended up being pick 9 Gold Coast gave us Pick 3 (that ended up being 4) Pick 10 and Pick 43 So that all looks pretty fair pick wise to both clubs but we ended up with Oliver so it is a monster, monster, monster win to us.

    2018 Player Reviews: # 44 Joel Smith

    Agree. Joel needs a full, injury free pre-season and then a consistent run of games early in the season The Club obviously rate him and it would be fantastic to see just what he is capable of

    Official New Rule Changes for 2019

    I think this rule change has been overlooked. It could be huge for us and anyone else with a tall, dominant ruck. Gawn, who generally gets first hands on the ball, will be able to do a quick, clearing handball to our mids. He should be even more important next year. Preuss at 206cm could also be handy and Bradtke is same height (?). This could inadvertently be the biggest of all the rule changes for us. I look forward to hearing training reports over the summer as to how they practice for this change Get on Maxy for the 2019 Brownlow

    Rumour File

    Someone with a better memory than will no doubt correct me but I thought it was actually Ferguson who said no I’m not leaving.

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    It could be a very short tenure for Peter Bell if he walks away from this trade period without their two B & F winner in Neale or Jesse Hogan. The pressure is on them. They will cave

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Well at least this confirms Jesse’s foot is ok. He should put it up Peter Bells end

    Farewell Dean Kent

    Good luck to him. He can’t knock back a 3 year contract. Hopefully he gets over his injury woes and plays some good footy just not against us.

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Yep then Jesse can say "I was always happy to stay at Melbourne, I love the city and the Club for standing by me during some difficult times" or "its been a difficult few years for me and coming back home with the chance of a new start can only be a good thing"

    The Kade Kolodjashnij Thread

    I understand what you are saying but Spargo was pick 29 and Fritsch 31. There were 47 picks after Fritsch (Jarrod Garlett - Carlton was pick 78) so neither were late picks

    And Kelly can commence Operation Get Extra Zero on Contact before Saying No, No, No to North.

    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    Yes fwiw the footy journo I know through work mentioned that while there were always divisions within clubs there are more than the usual group of unhappy campers at Freo. It could be an interesting ride for Hogan if he ends up there
