What would it take?

Recommended Posts

I read on Demonland somewhere (sorry cannot remember where) that Carlton mentioned Watts in a hypothetical with MFC and we said he is absolutely untouchable. It did however get me wondering as to what my Demonland brethren would be willing to trade him for.

btw I am expecting responses ranging from the HF line of the All Australian team to a new bugle for the bugle boy but what the hey.

In the words of Star Wars from Obi Wan Kenobi ..." you were the chosen one".

Jack Watts was our messiah. A key fwd with the blone movie star looks. We imagined a Nick Riewoldt type with class, and kicking goals as a premier forward. Jack is now a drifting half back, pushed aside in a contest by Swan, Petrenko and Deledio in one on ones.

Jack has that word POTENTIAL so if we get for a 1st round draft pick, say 12-18 pick would be sufficient.

From Carlton? Chris yarren

Firstly that's not funny, Yarran is crap.

Watts is a gun... he played some real Goddard like football this year.

Would not want to trade him!

I would honestly trade pick 4 and Watts for Cotchin.. thats it

Yarran is very far from crap. Absolute silk coming out of the Carlton backline and probably their most talented player. I'd do that trade.

But back to the hypothetical question in the OP ... I'm on record as saying I'd trade Watts for a package Carlton's pick 11 AND Mitch Robinson.

This must be an example of a Lance Armstrong suspension.

So over rated

Only thing i would consider from carlton would be Murphy and even then i would have to think long and hard.

So we trade our most talented player for theirs?

Mitch "choose the contest" Robinson, you have to be joking.

What part of "AND pick 11" didn't you understand?

Robinson is as tough as they come and while not A-grade, is a definite step for us and would walk straight into our side. Who are you kidding?

Currently I agree, but not sure for how long, J.Viney, N. Jones, J. Grimes, J. Mckenzie and even J. trengove, I could see him slowly being pushed out of our midfield! Optimism, or a few beers, either way I am starting to like the look of our list.

Having said that watts is going to be a star, and is easily our best user of the ball, so give me Murphy from Carlton and they can have watts. Other than that no dice.

Watts is going to be a gun, no matter where he plays, we have no doubt a 200-250 gamer no worries

I just don't see the justification for the words 'gun' and 'star' for Watts given what he's dished up so far. You're seeing something I'm not MM.

Hard to see how you couldn't see the potential in him this year, and I think he definitely benefited from the stint in the back line. I could probably slot potential in front of gun or star but I'm just going all out haha! I guess we just see different things, considering he is a fourth year key position player, his progress has been on the up, I see big things for him and I definitely see him having great potential. Like I said I can see him being a 200-250 gamer no worries, all Australian and if I'm really hopeful a premiership player

Suckling was a rookie and Watts was a pick one investment, which is the footballing tragedy.

The rose coloured glasses that many supporters use to view Watts is one of life's great mysteries. We all know he has talent and skill, but some us also know that he has no appetite for finals type contested footy.

Thanks Biffo. I thought it might be the club's social director. He looked so happy :wub:

If Mitch Robinson ever stepped foot inside the MFC, I would vomit and immidiately stop supporting us.

Robinson would get a game for us agreed, but the tough hard at it reputation he has is not always the case. He does pick and choose in a marking contest, he's not Jonathan Brown or big Mitch who probably for their own and everyone else's safety should back off at times.

I re read it by the way and you were talking about Yarran as a swap not Yarran and pick 11, so my point stands, their classiest player for ours. I certainly wouldn't put Robinson in that field.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
