We got those priorities as we lost a potential star mid (let's all hope not) so I am open to spending them on a potential star mid. I don't know Caddy well though... Anyone?

Would love it if we could snare him from under the nose of Essendon as well, would make it even sweeter. Would be great to get him but wouldn't be the end of the world if we couldn't.

The Bombers are finding themselves in nowhere land with an average list with significant deficiencies. They wont be expecting to finish low enough to get early picks any time soon - the picks they wi


Is he worth 2 priorities?

I thought Pick #7 was a tad high for him as I watched him a couple of times and he didn't really impress.

I must admit that in his two games he was nasty, hard at it and has the potential to rattle a few cages.

Ex-Marcellin, ex-Eltham boy I think.

Not worth 2 priorities for mine...

Mid round compo and Warnock would get it done you'd think..

I can still see Warnock featuring in a deal.. if we don't package him up by Monday he leaves for nothing right?

Yes.

But remember people, the PSD is right there and clubs will use whatever they can to maximise there own trade/draft scenario.

Warnock has a lot less value than many see.

Ok get ready to howl me down but we all agree you have to give to get. We offer 2 Queensland boys in Spencer and Bail and throw in Warnock. That would have to get it done and you keep compo picks for 2012.

If they said we insist on compo pick you do that with Warnock.

PS. I really rate Bail.

Depends on how many teams want him, how badly, and where he wants to go.

We'd get a half-decent trade done if Gold Coast & GWS want him, but he wants to get to the Hawks.

Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be the case.

I'd use one compo pick and change on Caddy.

He brings what I expect Viney will, and you simply can't have too much of that.

Ferocious attack on the hard footy, decent skills, and then tested surprisingly well at draft camp, that raised his standing after he was perceived as a little slow.

I have no doubt he'll make it, and he'd be starting 22 at the Dees in no time.

If Warnock wants to get to the Hawks then it could be done as part of a deal that gets Jordan Lisle to Brisbane. After all, we've been very chummy this week and its time to start scratching backs.

Yep. If we get involved in that and end up with pick 30-50ish, I'd be well happy.

It's the best we'll get IMO.

Is there any way we can send that as a suggestion to TIm Harrington?

Anyone got his email address..?

Twitter?

Maybe if I put an ad on gumtree?

Unless Caddy is a serious chance of becoming a jet in the way that Scully or O'meara are, I'd keep my powder dry with the priority picks for a few reasons. Firstly, they will have great currency next year given the strength of the draft, albeit we have to nominate straight up. Secondly, Pendlebury, Gaff and a host of the GCS kids come out of contract next year. Thirdly, some of the GWS kids may already want out by then. And finally, the draft is set to be strong anyway...

Hard edged HFF who gets his own ball, but perceived as 'slow'. Only school footy, but I think he kicked 16 against Mentone Grammar one arvo. I watched him kick 4 against GCS when he was with the Knights.

Definitely looks bigger now, but I wouldn't be moving heaven and earth to get him.

He's not a number 1 pick, but Caddy is worth at least 1 priority pick.

I'd use our "after 1st round pick", Warnock and maybe pick 39 from trading Bate?

That should get the deal done.

He'll be worth it.

I agree with the above

We need more mids to get to the next level and Caddy would be a great fit at Melbourne.

He could rotate with Sylvia through the mid and HFF. We need to make a play at the right price.

The only other suggestion would be a straight swap for Petterd. Like for like.

Get the deal done

Me too. This kid is definitely worth a comp pick plus something. He is a hell of a tough competitor and would be just what we need.

Consider this a howl down. HOWL to you Redleg!

We keep Bail because he is a weapon. I'd rather trade out a compo pick and double combo of Warnock, Spencil, Bate or Maric. Bail stays.

I wouldn't do this b/c bail is the only one who can play his role: fast, tough tagger who can hit the side of a barn; barts is all that w/o being able to hit the barn. I will not forgive bartrum for turning ball over against the saints this year.- he killed us through turnovers and will continue to do so.

I also have no interest in Caddy unless (A) he is a geniune clearance player; (B) he is quick; © he has good skills and d/m ability. If he is not two of these three, then we do not need him. We have 57 HFF's already. I'd trade petterd ahead of bail. And if Caddy Is two of three off my list, then I'd do the deal.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
