Leverage is a double edged sword. Who has a top 20 pick on there list, out of contract that wants to play back in Victoria? If we offer him a 3/4 year deal on "reasonable money".

Who has no leverage?

However, we do the right thing. We offer up a trade - Why - I will let you work that one out.

I'm not convinced GWS & GC would get involved in the Pre-season because of list reduction placed on both clubs. Plus Im not sure even if they did - they would want to pay "reasonable" dollars for a kid that would obviously want to play in Victoria. If we had a "deal" in place say 3/4 years and an acceptable amount to Jacobs - I reckon he would be ours.

They could just say we'll draft Jurrah and you can draft Jacobs - if we had a particularly good relationship with them then this trade might happen. But Jacobs would have to want to come only to us - unlikely, other Victorian teams could be in the frame - Geelong, Essendon, North etc., then ort may actually be able to get real trade value.

The key is to secure Jacobs with a fair deal 3-4 reasonable dollars. Wonder what Jarrah would be on? 300-400K. Why not offer Jacobs what Jurrah was on - no net gain no net loss for us. Houli-Dooley we would have a chance.

BB he is actually still contracted at trade period. He is still a Melbourne listed player. I dont think it will happen, but it can happen.

No Leverage means we have no leverage, MFC have not renewed his contract or discussed renewal until after March 2013. We can not offer something we do not have. To renew his contract we need his agreement and he has stated he can not commit until after March 2013. After the court case then we can deal but before that we can not offer his services so we have nothing nadda, zilch, zero.

Port would have to agree to give up their player Jacobs now for the possibility that if everything comes out okay in court and if Jurrah wants to continue to play AFL that they can have him sometime in March - April 2013. An offer that I am sure they would jump at, they would be mad to not do it.

Yes we can put an offer to Jacobs and Port but we can not use Jurrah as leverage or bait. I don't understand how I (and numerous others) can make it any clearer for you.

am fully aware he is technically stil on our list. I even mentioned this on several other threads. But as he can step aside and walk into the draft of his own accord we have no real call on him.

There is also the situation whereby had he signed a new contract he would be untradable unless he was to agree to it. Why would you sign with club A only to go to B when you could do what you like ( or need ). Mind you he could have donne that had it been his want to provide compensation to a club that had provided much for him.

He didn't , hasnt , wont ...take your pick. Matters not for what is...IS.

Much of what many suggest here is purely fantasy based upon their "wished for" , or "what might be" with no real recognition of what IS.

There is no trading Liam for theres no certainty he will go anywhere next year. Hes getting off the train.

He can go straight into the draft.

And that is if he even wants to play AFL next season.

He may be happy to just play SANFL.

Only 1 club would take him in the draft and that means we have as much leverage as a plastic fork trying to lift Fat Phil - NONE.

First we put the offer to Jacobs. (full-stop) If he agrees to come back to Victoria for 3-4 years on reasonable dollars say $300-400K - we have a deal.

Then we put the offer to Port - if Port dont accept it thats their problem not ours. We take Jacobs in the pre-season - no big deal to us. We have our man.

GWS or GC have to both reduce their list - I suspect this year neither will want to enter the pre-season draft. Plus - They are having enough problems keeping the Victorian kids they already have. Why create more problems for yourself. (Hi Josh, Hi Jonathon) Why would they want another on their books? Especially one that we would already have a deal with and we would request to be put on our permission to train list.

Jacobs can go into the ND too. And GC or GWS could keep room for a pick in the PSD - I would if I were their list manager.

And 'deals' and 'permission to train' lists mean something to drafts?

What I find odd is that - to you - it is as easy for us to get Jacobs as PA to get Jurrah.

It is much more difficult for us to get Jacobs than for PA to get Jurrah.

Yip but why would he - no certainty. We would have a deal in place 3-4 years @ 300-400 K.

What like they did last year? GWS passed on all selections GC took a Tassie kid. Plus you would have to pass on a very early pick. Dont forget both must reduce their list.

And 'deals' and 'permission to train' lists mean something to drafts?

Are you sure about that? Club dont like grabbing players for long-term deals if they have already committed elsewhere

Depends where Port want to put Jurrah on their list. Primary or Rookie? B)

I think Richmond is the biggest threat.

Im 99% sure they have secured Chaplin & Knights, and they are talking to one of our boys (who shall remain nameless at this point) Think they have their hands full at present.

Lets see. Many deals get talked about not all come to fruition. Where there is a will there is a way.

And an idiot on the other end of the negotiating table.

My question would be "why was jurrah not recontracted mid-year"

Even out of form he was less of a list clogger than most

You have to be kidding given the situation Jurrah has been in.

He hasnt been out of form because he has hardly played this year. Not to mention struggling with the pre season training.

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
