The Trade/Draft Rumour Mill

That is correct.

If you bring in Daniel Cross, that leaves us with no openings.

Any word on Magner?

I would doubt we would use 57 on a Rookie Upgrade. If we only want 2 from this draft then moving on Pick 57 to improve 40 would be the way to go.

Primary targets acquired I'd guess.

But I have a gut feel we have some trade-outs planned this week.

Won't be fringe players either - got to give to get. Contracted players with currency would be fairly easy to name.

Frawley for an early pick? Dawes for another player with pick swap? A fully fit Mitch Clark for a very high pick?

No point being in this draft after pick 40 apparently.

Above is long distance unqualified opinion.

Just updating my previous post in this thread, piggybacking off rpfc's Contracts Thread...

So from the 2013 primary list we've lost: Sylvia, Gillies, Davey, Rodan, Macdonald, Davis, Tynan and Sellar.

That's 8 spots opened up (not worried about rookie list at this stage).

Hogan comes onto the list, leaving 7 spots.

Michie comes in a trade, leaving 6 spots.

Vince comes onto the list for our compo pick, leaving 5 spots.

Dom Tyson comes in via trade, leaving 4 spots.

Taggert, Jetta and Nicholson all remain OOC, and can be delisted to create extra spots if needed.

We must use a minimum of 3 picks in the draft.

If we happen to upgrade Clisby off the rookie list, it will leave us with 3 spots, but also counts as one draft pick used from our minimum of 3.

We currently hold draft picks 9, 40, 57 & 94...

We have the 2nd pick in the PSD & also in the Rookie Draft.

Dopey's going to come in and ask a silly question. Apologies in advance. As well as upgrading Clisby (leaving three spots), could we use two picks in the ND and then one in the PSD? Or do the minimum of three picks have to come from the ND?

I doubt we'd have to use 3 picks in the national.

The AFL surely could not have a rule dictating where sides used their picks.

Frawley for no picks, Dawes is invaluable to improving our culture and Mitch Clark is exactly what we need - now we are improving our mids.

We have enough youth already on our list and enough young quality already coming in this year.

Experienced players like Frawley, Dawes and Clark are absolutely necessary.

Living up to your name with the above.

A sure way to ruin whatever momentum we have would be to trade Dawes, Frawley, or Clark.

We have got enough kids.

Mate what the hell are you smoking? The club isn't going to trade a bloke (Frawley) who wants to be in the leadership group, says he bleeds red and blue! We just picked up Dawes last year!! And he is do committed he is paying for his own altitude training with the same bloke you just offered up in Mitch Clark..

I know people like to think out of the box but, that thinking almost destroyed this club.. Ie delisting a captain in McDonald, letting Cam Bruce move on to Hawthorn, disrespecting Green by starting him as a sub as captain..

Some of these posts on here make me laugh..

I agree that there is little urgent need to trade now that we have Hogan coming in plus Michie, Vince,Dom Tyson and pick #9 (Freeman?) all bolstering our midfield stocks. The idea of offloading Dawes, Clark or Frawley is ridiculous. So far we are travelling well and if there is opinion that there is no depth at the back end of the draft, we could do a lot worse than upgrading Clisby who IMO would hold his spot in our backline.

Surely not, but just as surely they would make one up on the run if it suited them. ;-(

How is Cross 'no longer required'?

We picked up a replacement for Sylvia and two kids with 14 games experience.

Cross would be more than handy, and he would be cheap.

I will be very disappointed if we don't get Cross.

We need to improve our midfield. Dramatically. Not just maintain it.

Thus far, we have one experienced mid coming in (Vince) and he is simply replacing one departing (Sylvia).

We need another experienced mid IMO (ie, Cross).

Interesting article on the AFL site:

White to Pies a done deal
Sydney Swans big man Jesse White will get his wish of a trade to Collingwood, after the clubs agreed to a three-way trade that also involves West Coast, reports Fairfax Media.
The report says the trade could be made official as early as Monday, with the Magpies to receive White and pick six in the NAB AFL Draft, the Eagles picks 11 and 31, and the Swans pick 44.
I am confused in what does Sydney get? The Eagles are darn keen on using 31 to get Yeo; willing to go from 6 to 11 to get it done.

Sydney will get pick 44 for Jesse White. And Buddy cap space. Eagles are confident they will get the player they wanted at 6 at 11 anyways (multiple reports that it's Sheed).

Swans get 44 for White

Woods get White and pick 6, and lose picks 11 and 31 which go to the Eagles for 6........I think! Seems unnecessarily complex to me, but who am I to judge.

    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

    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.
