    WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - CHRIS DAWES

    I feel really dirty about posting this: Rumour from Facebook (make of it what you will) "GWS have also sparked interest in Chris Daws who have offered to double his salary for a move up to Western Sydney. It's understood pick 12 or 13 would be offered for his services." Surely he's not worth a Pick 12 or 13? There's debate that he's even worth 20. I suppose though GWS have so many picks at the pointy end that they can afford to splurge a little on experienced players.

    If this is the case, you and I have very different definitions of the word 'confirmed', sir.

    MFC Starting Lineup Round 1, 2013

    Nevertheless, it's a massive improvement on what took the field this year. I hope this draft/trade period will be look upon in future years as a rebirth. When we got rid of the chaff and started to recruit FOOTBALLERS.

    Please don't say the source was the Facebook trades page. Having said that, I wouldn't be unhappy with this. Petterd hasn't shown much in a while.

    Latest murmurings of a crazy time

    I just read on the Facebook trades page that there is a 'mini-free agency' period from 1/11 to 13/11, which means that delisted players can be picked up as free agents with no compensation going to the previous team (assuming this info is correct). Would this not mean that we're better off trying to trade Cook now, assuming we do want to delist him, to get something rather than nothing?

    Pick 20 options

    To be fair, he did say he 'heard it from a bloke...' so it's not like he's quoting it as fact. Although his comments afterwards indicate that he believes it to be true. I agree though that it doesn't sound plausible.

    Watching R9 V Carlton

    I was kicking myself that I didn't watch that one live. The next day I plonked myself down at the pc and streamed it on the bigpond site. Crappy quality but man it was a great morning. The wife even took the baby to the in-laws so I could watch it in peace and yell and scream. Man that was a great morning. Couldn't believe Garland.

    Schadenfreude for Adelaide

    As I understand it, a deal hasn't been reached yet with the Swans? So if they can't come to terms and he decides to nominate for the draft, wouldn't GWS just go "yep, we'll take him"? Not sure GWS will be suckered like we were on Ball. Happy to revel any other club's misery regardless, we've sure as hell had enough of it around here.

    Pick 4 Options

    I really think this is spot on. I'm not sure that he's 100% to blame, especially taking the whole Bailey 'lack of development' era into account. Lets see what Neeld and Mission can get out of him before we throw him to the dogs (no pun intended). Edit: Holy crap I just realised my first ever post is one agreeing with Olisik. There is no hope for me.
