Agree that they still trump us, but not by much. Do you know the value/type of Compo pick GC have to offer with pick 4? Ours possibly could be stronger. We still might offer a player as well to sweeten it (even though GWS have said they want picks)

Pick 6 just gets us closer to the mark if we are seriously trying to secure O'Meara...

Unless we've conceded O'Meara and are going at Crouch.

Port may be keen on pick 12 to get the Ebert deal done. Giving up 6 for Ebert would be paying overs, but if they trade 6 to us for a player and 12, then 12 to WC for Ebert it's a better deal. I'd be very surprised if Bate was that player though.

Very happy to see Harrington is as keen on the mini-draft as a lot of us around here. I don't care if we get pick 1 or 2, I'd be just as happy with Crouch as O'meara. I can't see anyone trumping pick 12 and a compo pick, if GWS only want picks. Get it done Tim.

Ditto on Crouch, and don't know that it's worth throwing everything at O'Meara. GC could easily trump 12 plus a compo with 4 plus a compo ... but hard to see us not being second cab off the rank. Though for mine, don't know that two mid-ranking picks on what is supposed to be a strong draft (next year) would be worth it for one potential top 5 pick (e.g. Crouch). We already have Viney, who could easily be top 5 in any case, so with what we have in hand, we would end up with Viney plus 3 first round picks next year - well, as long as no-one else bids first round for Viney under the Father/Son rules.

So, IMHO, player plus a compo would be all I'd be going for - though not sure it would be enough to get us one of the (probably) two under-17's on offer.

Very logical.

I believe the Dee's are going to make a statement and trump GC.

I am quitley confident in snaring O'meara.

Pick 6, both compo picks & Warnock for O'meara & GWS Pick 15???

Nobody interested in this statement?

To me he said we HAVE been talking to mature player types from other clubs in exchange for Bate, Warnock, Maric types ect

Agreed. It looks like we will be getting on the front foot instead of waiting around and seeing what's being thrown around. Target Recruiting. I like that.

I do believe that pick 6 and 12 is massive overs for Brad Ebert, but you are definitely on the right track.

Ebert will be worth imo somewhere around pick 20 or so and Ports second pick is 33 which is nowhere near what is required to get the deal done.

So if they can get a downgrade form 6 to 12 and something else of value, more than Bate imo this could open up the deal

to then be Ebert and WC first pick 23 for Ports pick 12

or something along these lines

Meaning Port get Ebert, Bate and pick 23 plus a few other things maybe for pick 6 not out of the question imo

Heard on SEN O'Halpin keen to be traded. Any interest? He's can be a bit haywire, prone to brain explosions and his kicking is not the best but he his big enough to be the forward we need and takes a good grab. Thought he was teriffic against Wet Coke.

Warnock and Maric for him?

I don't want to see Setanta at Melbourne and if he does come here, I'd be disappointed if we gave anything better than a pick very late in the draft.

Warnock and Maric would be far far too much.

Pick 4 and compo pick is stronger than pick 6 and compo pick. So I don't see why GC would have to come up with a stronger package, they trump us..

Like I said Port would be crazy..

Maybe you're forgetting that the rumour involves GC getting pick 9 in return with O'Meara?

Then pick 6 and a compo pick definitely wins.

Especially considering the compo pick is really after Geelong's pick, as previously mentioned by others.

What has neeld told him?

The truth?

He's had a big, strong body for years now and has never shown he can use it. Therefore you'd have to call him a medium forward. We have Green, Petterd, Howe, Jurrah, Dunn and Sylvia who I think are all ahead of him. Most would say that at the very least 4 out of those 6 are better footballers.

What does Bate do better than any of these players that means he's worth persisting with?

If I were him, I'd be requesting a trade as well.

Not a bad suggestion really....we are in the market for a small forward. 79 goals.

http://www.sportingp...150677-14505841

Avg. 3.76 goals a game. And topped the list for the year in the VFL..as you say.

Our second pick is at around ~39 (depends upon concession/priority picks in play)..

Agree ... also is amed saad ( spelling?) from the bullants contracted to the blues? could be very lively for us in a crumbing role i reckon....

When the heck do we name our delistings??? other clubs seem to have named theirs...??

I'm glad we haven't yet, there is no need to. No sense in delisting someone who might have some currency on the trade market, no matter how small. Better to negiotiate an upgrade of a late draft pick than delist a player and let a club pick him up for nothing (Buckley).

We should have a firm idea of how many draft picks we want to use this draft so it's best to wait and see if we get any offers and move on a contracted player or two before making those decisions. I'm not 100% certain but I believe Warnock, Bate (Maric?) are contracted for next year. If one or two of them moves on I reckon it may provide a reprieve for Joel Macdonald.

Ahhh sorry, I probably wasn't clear in what I was replying to, I was referring to your second point about pick 12.... I got the bit about our compo pick. :)

... and incidentally I agree, I don't know why the other picks would get involved... but perhaps Port are rating the value of Pick 6 a fair bit higher, hence why we trade our 1st and 2nd picks for their 1st pick and their 3rd one (.... and Bate)

The depth of the draft is unclear & considered shallow, Maybe Port think they stand a better chance with 2 picks inside 35. But it still sounds like Maric may need to be added.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
