Why do we give any credibility to the opinions of this pumped up little rat ????

Agree. Just another ex player trying to still be relevant.

I think there is a legitimate question about the direction footy is going about how successful teams with multiple key targets will be. I don’t think losing hogan would be the end of the world. We’d get a lot in return. But I also don’t think we will lose him.

I’m not one to sensationalise, but do we honestly think he’s the answer at FF.

Trade him for two first rounders while he has some currency !

Trade Hogan?  GTFO.

worth a discussion if you think we can cover his goal scoring ability with Weideman and improved mid field kicking.

So what do we get in his place. Two first round picks ... I like the idea but we all know it's a lottery. We also save a lot of money that allows us to go after Gaff.

Assuming you go for a trade or an ontrade of the two picks who do you trade for.

I'm neutral but I would be disappointed if the list committee wasn't doing the SWOT analysis.

You have to look at where we have trade currency and Hogan is where it's at.

Geez calm down Overexaduration do we have another Key Forward waiting i don't think so right now Weidemann is not up to it. I personally think he is carrying something but once on the field your expected to perform. I don't know why they didn't rest him last week to be honest. I would moving on JKH. Why they continue to play JKH i have no idea he is not up to hit. If they would have played Kent instead as bad as we played we may have got over the line.

I'd take 3 first rnd

so would I but no one is going to offer it unless you want to take it over three years.

BTW I would want two first rounders in the first 8 before I would think about it.

What a depressing thread!

why.... we need to talk about how we win a premiership so all things should be able to be discussed.

People on demonland reveal their lack of knowledge about football quite often. 

They are done through:

trade hogan

trade petracca

play pederson

to name a few

To quote Darth Vader "I find your lack of faith disturbing".

To trade him now is a mistake.  His too-often misses of set shots really makes my blood boil, but not enough to trade him.

Petracca on the other hand... I might be warming to this idea.

I agree on discussing what would be helpful, I just don't like the hysterical premise.

The season's not over, we need positive solutions now, not next year.

Maybe play Hogan strictly at half forward and in the middle next week?

Said this a while ago. We have glaring holes, need class, but no one wants to give anything up for quality. We need to be creative. I’d offer Hogan, Kent, Hunt, Garlett for something decent (2-3 players or picks.

    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
