Not an A grader (at the moment) but, fmd, I'll take any midfielder at the moment!

Will be an A grader.

Averaging 21 touches in his 2nd season, and would comfortably be our 2nd besat midfielder behind N Jones.

Huge chance here for the Dees to land a great young midfielder and a legitimate ball magnet

He can play, gets the footy and his disposal's good.

Make him an offer he can't refuse.

If he refuses it, somebody else overpays.

But what if Melbourne is the one overpaying? :P Wouldn't "an offer he can't refuse" technically be more than what others offer?

Definitely one we should try hard to get, as well as Anthony Miles he never gets any game time and is pretty decent ball winner. After watching the Swans dismantle the Crows today I would love for us to go for one of their fringe players such as Bird just to bring that culture that they have. Just an incredible side who are so tough that is exactly what I want the Dees to be one day.

Luke Parker?

Question is "why" come to Melbourne apart from Money or for fringe players to "get a game".

Targets as at 8 June:

- Dylan Shiel (GWS) 3years $$$

- Taylor Adams (GWS) 3years $$$

Fringe:

- Maverick Weller (Suns)

- Liam Anthony (Kangas)

- Mitch Hallahan (Hawks)

- Jarryd Lyons (Crows)

- Aiden Riley (Crows)

- Matthew Jaensch (Crows)

In a heart beat.

We should be offering lots of coin on a front ended contract. I don't care if we pay overs the kid can play and would be in our starting mids.

Given he can walk, I'd encourage that (ie psd), but id also be willing to offer trade bait to secure him. It may help get GWS to push him towards us rather than other suitors.

Exactly. If nothing else, we can use our salary cap space to put artificial pressure on other club's salary cap space. ;) Eventually, we'll shake a few from the tree.

And yes, if we can grab some quality midfielders, please... please! Do it, any chance we get.

Question first is would he want to come to us.

For an extra 10k I doubt it but for 100k or more, more than hee would get elsewhere he would have to think strongly about it.

Personally I'd rather us land a player like Adams who will impact next year and still have a 10 year career than a draftee we need to develop who won't help us improve next year.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
