AB asks for trade from Steelers 

Yep, it’s official. Still no obvious reason why but he seems keen to move on. I feel like the Raiders might make a cannonball splash in this pool.

The thing is his contract with the Steelers is pretty big still. 

Niners are keen but are they willing to pay up big for him.

Yeah another 3 years or something like that. It's a bit of a punt at 31, yes he's brilliant and could go a while yet but still a risk. Some new off field issues don't help. 

I'd welcome him of he came but still not convinced he's a perfect fit. Would rather a decent long threat and some serious pass rush this FA.

The Raiders have serious cap room and are desperate for a big fish. Gruden is a fan so would make sense.

Yeah and with Bell linked with Ravens the Steelers could be a very different proposition.

Think I'll be wearing my Patriots jacket to round one, please lads don't creep up and behind me and slap me in the head. Go Pats Go. Been a fan since the Booming Darren Bennett started punting so I don't mind the Chargers either. Pity Drew Brees didn't stay there, their history would of been different and won a title or two. 

Congrats 4KW and welcome to the thread ... look forward to your contributions going forward.

The fella's here just love the Patriots winning all the time too  🙄😁 ... so give 'em heaps!  Winners are grinners.

Foles to the Jags?

Not sure Macca. Definite step up from Bort but probably means no Haskins in this year's draft.

The Giants could get in first anyway (?) 

Here's his Combine performance ...

Yeah sounds like a good fit. I'd like to see him go somewhere with a defense. Wish him all the best of course. I don't know too much about their offense, aside from De Fillippo and him loving each other. Could be awesome actually.

I think the jags are a good fit, but will be interested to see if it lands how he goes.

Rams signing free agents already. 

Sullivan gone, Joyner looks gone, got in Weddle who I’m stoked about, they are hoping to get Fowler to re commit, don’t think Suh is that high a priority unless he take big pay cut.

Rams sign Fowler for up to 14.2 mil depending on incentives which equals the 5th year amount he would have made if Jags took his 5th year option.

Weddles money has gone from being reported in the 12mil over two years to 10.4mil over two years.

It's brilliant. LeVeon Bell to the Jets too. Free Agency/Trade period this year is mental.

Baker has one of the more accurate deep balls going around so this move makes the right sounds. Surely on the up now? :)

Gotta hope his o-line canbuy him time for the receivers s to get down field, but his receiving core is first rate.

Russell Wilson might be leaving Seattle.

Wants a bigger contract than Seattle will give. I hope he leaves and goes to another division 😂

Wilson’s new deal is 4yrs at $140mil, wow. QB money is getting silly.

Great posturing and great result for him. Crazy money but he's certainly a QB I'd want to pay!

It’s getting to the point where I think the QB money is getting silly again. Sure they are super important but O though wilson would rather a good oline to protect him and 5mil less a year. Might even survive the four years.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
