The Trade/Draft Rumour Mill

Recommended Posts

Now I know it's early for this and this one doesn't even involve our club but I just thought I'd post this as it's a pretty big rumor. Filth supporter mate of mine is the nephew of a current filth board member and he texted me this rumour this morning which is pretty big if true.

Collingwood & GWS allegedly already had early discussions about the following trade at seasons end"

Collingwood trade Swan, O'Brien & their 1st round draft pick to GWS.

GWS trade Patton, Adams & a third round pick to Collingwood

The theory behind this being that the money Collingwood save on Swan & O'Brien (mainly Swan) they can use to match any offers for Thomas as a free agent.

GWS by trading Patton would use pick 1 on Boyd giving them a forward line next year of Cameron, Franklin (who they're confident of getting) and Boyd as the 3rd tall/ruck.

My mate doesn't normally give away to much, so not sure if he was out on the sauce celebrating the win last night, but would be a huge trade if it happened. I know Buckley was apparently a big fan of Adams when he coached or mentored him at junior level or whatever relationship they had?

Here's what I've heard, and make of it what you will...

Carlton are practically demanding a trade of Dunn, Strauss, Davis, Spencer and Bail for Murphy. They were also pretty annoyed that we couldn't throw Morton in there.

If I was Collingwood and GWS, I'd do that trade.

It probably favors Collingwood a smidgen, but Swan and Harry O have the points on the board.

Also, they would be ideal to slot in that sides in addition to Franklin.

Would surely make it difficult to retain youngsters, with so much cap space taken up by buddy, swan, Harry, $cully etc....

Swan with only one or two years left according to him, I couldn't see GWS going for it.

If he doesn't gel with Buckley - as speculated - then he could go for it.

It makes sense for both parties, I actually like the trade.

Swan and Franklin are similar, they'd both be a good fit.

Thought that myself, unless of course the AFL pay a large slice of Buddy's and Swan's wage as promotional players. Coleman medalist & brownlow medalist?

Massive win to Collingwood unless they throw in a set of steak knives to even it up.

All we need now is for Chilliboy to return to the fold and the next six months are going to be sheer bliss!

Just heard on channel 7, that the giants have declaired the number 1 draft pick is on the trade table..... Hmm? Are they saying that there going to tank to get the number 1 draft pick? How can they put a pick on the trade table, that they don't have?

That trade in the OP won't eventuate as Swan won't move. He already stated he will retire in 1-2 years as he doesn't have a burning passion for footy. You'd think he'd rather retire than move to GWS for 1-2 years, so that trade won't happen unless they trade someone else in Swan's place.

It seems highly likely Buddy will end up at GWS under free agency. Here's hoping we can pinch Daisy Thomas through free agency or trade across a Craig Bird, Taylor Adams type with a late first round or early second round draft pick.

Very good point.

Having said that, they just got done by the Bullies by less than a goal.

Can't see them winning a game.

Over at Etihad, Norf are putting the Tigers back into 9th.

GWS would always have been putting their top pick up though. They desperately need some quality, experienced players. The last couple of years have been great for drafting potential stars but now they really need some older leaders.

Nothing like watching Carlton and Richmond get hammered one day after the other, satisfaction!

Hawthorn FC site reports Lance Franklin's manager "very confident " he will re-sign with Hawthorn next year

Probably read off a page of the exact statements that Scully's manager made.

Usually I'd be skeptical about any rumours this time of year but I have been wondering what set Harry O off. Maybe this is it?

Pretty sure I started the rumour that Buckley loves Taylor Adams on big footy a couple of years ago.

Based on a kid I worked with being good friends with him at school, who relayed the info that he was Buckley's pet when coaching the VC U/16 team. Always saying "do this, just like Tay does it."

Also during some brief half-time footage a few years ago to show Buckley's supposed state U/16 coaching "prowess" when still a media darling, he praised Adams multiple times.

After yesterdays game Adams may be looked at in a different light. Round arm punch to Cooney will get him weeks. Hot head.

Anyone heard anything about Mitch Banner from South Freo? I'm from Melbourne haven't seen him play this year but I see his stats over the past couple of months have been consistent. High possessions and kicking goals. 23 years old.

Definitely, would be a really handy acquisition too. Provides good run and clean disposal from the back line.

Wonder what he'd be worth?

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new Football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.  The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
