We've got to turn some players over - Scully makes one, but we need at least 2 more vacancies, maybe more if we trade someone in to filla "gap", which I hope we do.

Warnock, Maric, Macdonald, Wonna - all out of contract. Bate in contract but looking for a trade. In all probability at least 3 of them wont be on our list next year.

Out of those five players i'd keep Maric and Aussie....

As you said Scully makes one - Warnock wants out and we're happy to oblige, that's two.

I could easily see Wonna being delisted and then picked up as a rookie. Bate wants to go and it looks like we'll be happy to accommodate if an offer can be made. That's 4 spots and probably enough for this year. We can upgrade Nicholson to the senior list leaving 3 more spots being pick 12, 36 (or whatever our second pick is) and maybe get a player in for Bate or Warnock (Lisle?). That's probably all I'd do for now given the shallow draft pool and given there's no other rookies I'd be too keen to upgrade (possibly Evans?) unless there's another player they have in mind for a trade.

Question - does anyone know if we happen to land Crouch (or O'Meara however unlikely) do they take a spot on our senior list next year? Or do they come on for the 2013 season?

Nicho and Pickles are contracted as second year rookies.

Cant find any mention of him anywhere else.

Are we interested in Alan Toovey? 24. 189cm 89kg. Apparantly hard at it, but disposal, although improving, could be a concern.

Any thoughts?

Also could be very cheap.

Can someone please tell me which players in the AFL have "elite" disposal, that run at 90% efficiency or better. And of all these players that have elite disposal, which of them are up for a potential trade.

Every bloody player mentioned as a trade possibility has disposal concerns. Surely the AFL can't be full of blokes that can't kick or handball???!!! Or is it that maybe the 70-75% efficiency rate is quite the standard (which mean a lot of pur blokes, including Jones and Bartram, are well within industry standard?).

Im pretty sure 80% is quite good, above that is "elite", 90% is huge

non will be on the market

Thanks Jordie. My point is that almost every player has flaws in their game, heck, even Chris Judd is only around the 73% efficiency or something. People's expectation of having all these players on our list with elite everything is totally unrealistic. No team has had it, and I'm doubtful that any will (especially with the game played at the pace it is).

Where we need to tidy things up is making sure that of the 75% of our efficient disposals are dangerous. This can be done.

Toovey is a very good footballer, but the only reason I wouldn't pick him up would be because of his price tag. His disposal, while not 100% efficient, is not an issue. But, I feel that way about Jones, and to some extent Bartram, which is against what is written in teh Code of Conduct for this site!

The latest seems to be some 4 way deal involving Clarke to freo, Jaegar to GWS, Crouch to Adelaide and Gunston to Hawthorn....... AFL not sure about GWS ending up with Jaegar though

Adelaide may be after Ben Kennedy of SA in the mini draft

So what does Brisbane get, you need a five way deal to make this work

GWS looking to keep O'Meara has severely [censored] me off.... i wanted Crouch but this opens the market back up to GC ect.....really unhappy

Don't stress, GWS can't keep O'Meara as they don't have him. They are selling tickets to a mini-draft they can't participate in.

Very keen on Crouch but hoping too much isn't given up for his services (hopefully not both compensation picks). Viney and Crouch dominating at Casey next year would be a sight to see.

AFL have said they don't like it, but haven't said no to it yet. It appears that if o'meara goes through other hands first they can get him back. By the rules anyway.

"The Giants must trade the picks and cannot, for example, decide to use one to select O'Meara for themselves."

Kind of funny in a way . The AFL was happy enough if other clubs got dudded provided it was in line with Vlads grand scheme but Vlad doesn't like it when the same underhandedness is played against Vlad himself.

Got to begrudgingly admire the Dwarves.... they're bloody crafty lol ;)

Adelaide pick 10 to freo

Freo pick 10 to brisbane

Clarke to Brsbane

Adelaide Gunston to Hawthron

GWS pick 2 to Adelaide i think

Hawthorn ??? > ????presumably Adelaide

GWS pick 1 (O'Meara) to Adelaide then directly returned to GWS

Something like this, was mentioned on Trade week radio,

more so that these teams are involved with each other in big trade, with Freo wanting Clarke, Hawthorn wanting Gunston, GWS wanting to keep O'Meara and Adelaide seeing and opportunity to gain something from the Gunston situation and Brisbane actually getting something of worth for Clarke

This is how i understood it and see it

anyone else catch this?

Jordan Lisle? who can tell me about him?

I havnt seen him play but hear he is big and can take marks, doesnt kick a heap of goals though, 5 games in 4 years for the hawks?

I will bid Bate and a 3rd round pick lets talk hawks?

Got most of the following information from this bigfooty thread.

http://www.bigfooty....ad.php?t=880046

196cm 96kg KPF.

Slid to pick 50 in 2008 (Watts Draft)

Played both defense and forward as a youngster. Has huge mits and can take a mark. Has not had much opportunity at the Hawks behind Franklin and Roughead.

Was pretty disappointing in his afl games, but was apparently nervous and usually plays very well at Box Hill.

Rumor - Has not been offered for trade but has been inquired about by a few clubs.

One of those guys who would be worth more to his club than he would get as a trade.

    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.
