Some suggestions....

Pick 12 & Cale Morton to GWS for Jaegar O'meara. This is first preference.

or

Both Scully compo picks to GWS for Jaegar O'meara. Second preference.

Pick 12 to ADL for Rory Sloane or Patrick Dangerfield.

Both Scully compo picks to WC for Andrew Gaff or Scott Pendlebury end of next season. Fist preference Gaff. Smaller price tag.

Warnock & 2nd round pick to Hawthorn for Xavier Ellis.

Dream away, why not. But Ellis; FFS what does he bring to any team?

Not much of interest on offer from clubs at this point as per usual, further compounded by clubs probably not wanting (through any premature delisting) to give GWS any free players.

Perhaps this year we could just use pick 12 for Dangerfield and do a Ellis Warnock type arrangement to bolster the midfield remembering the return of Grimes to that area. That leaves the two compo picks for a bit of dealing with the Suns next year for McKenzie & Toy who will be 3rd year players and cherry ripe by the time they reach us?

While I like the idea of making an offer for a big name player like Goddard this year, I also like the idea of holding on to our draft picks this year and make a big play for players next year. While next years draft is considered to be much stronger and deeper I think the club could look at trading our first two picks and compo picks next year. This would put the club in a position to get Jack Viney as a 2nd or 3rd rd selection and then with the traded picks look at getting a Goddard, Pendlebury, Gaff or any other quality player available.

Lol at some of the spuds being suggested on this thread- who said Nason haha I almost choked on my chocolate milk! People we don't have to trade for trades sake. I want to trade for someone who will be worth it- and that doesn't include grandpa's who are over the hill and have only one good leg left (Lake). Discuss players who will make an impact and are available, or don't discuss any at all really.

Sloonie, there is a place for afl pensioners in some teams as temps. Those that add depth or temporarily fill a list gap whilst kids grow. Joel Mcdonald has been one we've enjoyed for a little while, who has given us good service. If he was 6' 4" tall, he would be quite handy for 2 years up forward.

GWS are getting Junior, Cornes, Power, Brogan etc for 1 playing year to fill the Gap as they wait to add more mature players next year. These talented players will teach and hold fort briefly. And maybe Hall for 1 or 2?

If we could get Leigh brown to pull on the boots as playing coach for next Year, & another part time year (2013), I'd be rapt. At 29, & 146 odd games he'd be worth it, to guide and protect our young. And show the spirited ways.

Bate and Warnock are the obvious 'outs' from the Demons who might have some currency elsewhere. MacDonald might get an offer from a club looking for a mature body, but I would think the trade would be more to faciliate his career move than to get value.

We aren't going to get a star in return though, obviously.

Fully understanding that we might have him on the list for two years, see him play 8 ordinary games, and then drop him, I think Lachlen Hansen in exchange for Bate to the Kangaroos isn't too bad an option. Possibly one 'not really AFL' for another, with no real value generated, but considering Bate isn't playing for us at all it is hardly a loss.

Warnock there might be some more serious interest in. I much prefer 'boosting' picks than getting an extra mediocre pick. So something like Warnock and our second round (pick 36) for a late first round would suit me. That said, it would count on a club in need of a fullback having a second pick comparatively early as a result of other trades - I think most clubs would be reluctant to give away their only first round pick, even if it is replaced by 36. So the hypothetical would be something like Hawthorn making a surprise trade for GWS pick 15, then trading us their pick 24 for Warnock+36.

Also, for those still looking at O'hailpin, I'm afraid he can't be traded away from Carlton. There's a special detail in his contract, called the S'anta Clause.

Booboom ... excellent!

Back on topic, article in the HUN today, suggesting that we won't be very active. Too early to bring in the older experienced players, and we don't have enough trade bate on offer.

You suggested Nason, right? :P

No, it was me who suggested Nason actually - I also suggested Farren Ray, Goddard and Dawes; and I stand by my suggestions. Nason didn't have a great 2nd season (I believe he had some issues with his shoulder maybe?), but his 1st season was not too shabby at all for a first year player - 225 possessions and 14 goals, I know you seem to be into the hard at it, physical style of player (Bennell must drive you crazy), but I believe there is also room for smaller players that bring different skill sets - and it has been suggested we do need a good crumbing forward.

Ridicule others all you like, but in the wash-up it doesn't matter what any of us here think as it all comes down to what the brains trust at the MFC want and what they are prepared to give to get it.

I find it hard to believe that we will do much in the coming trade week.

we have only a couple of players that appear to want to change camps i.e. Warnock and Bate.

Bate has a contract so little will happen there unless the offer is good.

Warnock is uncontracted and he could sit out till the later draft.

There does not appear to be too much on offer so not a lot to chase.

Also I reckon Neeld will want to form his own opinion on the list before he makes many changes.

I fully expect to be bored as usual.

PS why is it that a lot of Demonlanders believe you can trade an ordinary player for a good one.

If you want someone good you have to put something good on the table.

If we think a player is ordinary what do you think another team sees them as?

If you cannot get a game with a team that finished 13th you must be ordinary!

Fair amount of outgoing at Fremantle, Bulldogs, Port, GC, Brisbane, Essendon and North and maybe a couple more from Geelong in coming days. Remembering that GC have to trim their list a little (by 2 ?).

I think the likes of Bate, Warnock will find new homes and along with Scully there is three outgoing net changes.

Don't agree with that - the Scully Compo picks put us in a great position to be very active. Also pick 12 is useful - do we really need another solid good player like Gysberts, Tapscott or Strauss? I think we need stars and we need to fill specific gaps - I'd trade pick 12 in a heartbeat if it could do either of those.

What about Robert Eddy ? has big game experience is a tough kid is only 23 has played in 3 grand finals now and could be the in and under boy that we need. Many will laugh but I dont mind him as a footballer. Issues with a broken arm this year and the fact Ross Lyon is a gigantic [censored] didn't help him. Also can kick goals if pushed forward as he brings forward pressure.

And he lacks vision: "No point luring a 28-year-old if he is done and dusted when they are their real premiership window in three years."

I'm of the belief that a 28 year old is what we need to help guide our playing group so that we are well positioned in that premiership window.

Robert Eddy is a SPUD. Won't add anything to our playing list.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown.

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening.

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
