Patrick Dangerfield

Recommended Posts

Sauce Dazzler?

That sounds positive if true.

Source maybe B. Vince?

I preferred the story that you were under the family couch at the time Dazzle. Would have loved to see his father's reaction when he heard an unaccounted for "YESSSSS!!!" coming from under the furniture upon hearing Roos speak.

Thats hilarious!

we have salary cap space for a big play at someone from Adelaide - but will it be Dangerfield?

Sloane would also be nice (if we can turn his family around from being Prendergasted)

Because it doesn't work that way, he only has his service record at Adelaide. If he moves to another club he goes back to year one.

...but I do think you are right, the thread is pure fantasy.

All the trade stuff would be pretty much worked out prior, if not they make a phone call. No biggie.

Yep, just ask Freo. Worked well for them with Clark.

Pick 3 & Toumpas would be very tempting for the Crows.

Toumpas will be a pretty good player when he gets over his niggles & Brayshaw has the potential also.

Danger is pretty awesome, but would he want to come to Melbourne?

Danger has knocked back big money from Essendon & Geelong in the past.

Is there any evidence AT ALL that Dangerfield wants out?? His name gets mentioned every trade period and all you hear from him is how much he loves the Crows and how he is encouraging others to sign on etc...

With Sanderson gone, presumably Dangerfield stays - surely that was the point of the exercise from the Crows' POV?

Well if part of the allure we had of nabbing him involved signing up Goodwin, Adelaide have basically nullified our plan with a master stroke that should see Danger stay at the Crows.

Pricks.

I know it's a cut throat business, but is there ANY club this year that isn't trying to completely [censored] us over in new and exciting ways? Colonwood and Druggies with Clark, Adelaide with succession plan, Freo and Geelong with Frawley (arguably the former will help by increasing his contract though), GWS with their condescending comments on the priority pick, etc.

Yep and if Freo had of offered a decent pick like we did it would have been done day one.

So the theory is that Ricciuto was instrumental in Sanderson getting the chop and his best friend Goodwin was over in Adelaide talking to the club.

Ricciuto owns a pub in Adelaide with Walker, Dangerfield and Sloane and several players including Walker were critical of the coach in their exit interviews.

What does this tell you; well I'd say that Goodwin will be coach and we haven't got a chance with any of the players.

Back to the drawing board.

Jokes on Adelaide then when he leaves next year and all they get is pick 10.

Clubs need to wake up to free agency. Why settle for one compensation pick when other clubs will pay overs in a trade? Thankfully Roos has his head around the concept. I'm sure if he could do his time over he would've traded Frawley last year

So why didnt he trade him? Dont tell me he believed his BS about waiting to see how the team went. In FA times you have to strike early and hard or you will be [censored] around by selfish players and managers

It could work out OK if the Dangerfield thing falls through. Pick 2 & 3 in the draft could snare Petracca and Brayshaw or allow us to target Cameron. Plenty of other fish in the sea.

As for Goodwin - Meh.

Easier said than done though. Do we trade Nate Jones this year if he doesn't extend his contract?

I'm not. He doesn't have any contacts.

Source is my uncle, works in the SANFL, has done for the last 12 years, knows a lot of the crows boys. I have mentioned info from him previously on here.

He said Dangerfield had a meeting with the club about extending his contract and to see if he was open to begin talks, he said he wanted a clear blueprint of how the club planned on winning a premiership before he would consider re-commit, the club is aware of offers to Dangerfield from Victorian clubs already being on the table, he said that some of the trade deals he has heard are quite good when compared to the potential free agency compensation that might be on offer next year, Sanderson wasn't 100% against the idea.

Basically suggesting they have panicked and believed they needed a change to try and convince Danger to stay.

Just so you know I have at least one contact who can find things out ;)

The best result would be to keep our early picks, bank some salary cap room and then land Dangerfield as a Free Agent in 2016. He is a Restricted Free Agent, so it will be difficult for the top Victorian sides to outbid Adelaide.

Has he now? Can't remember him being a FA in the past.

I know the cats are working towards getting him next year.

Danger & his manager don't knock back meetings with other clubs, including Melbourne.

I'd say it hasn't been him rejecting big money, but rather that a deal hasn't come along that satisfied all parties, but most would be open to it.

[censored] Danger.

I wish the AFL had the trust that we could this time around build a dynasty on our own. Trust that we have the right recruiters, development coaches and players to provide the perfect environment for young players to thrive. Of course I completely get that we've had ample opportunity in previous drafts/years and we've got it so horribly wrong. But I don't care to wait now. I don't want to offer the world for a bonafide star of the comp who was brought to life by another club.

I want us to do it ourselves for once.

I want us to be ruthless in our objective to draft the best two mids of this year in Petracca and Brayshaw, (insert any other player out recruiters believe have star qualities) And inject maybe a ROK, Malceski and Lumumba to add to Cross, Vince and Dawes who were not stars of the comp but who tick the box as teachers and players who will actually nurture and mentor young players unlike Sylvia, Moloney and Frawley in recent times.

I understand there's an argument that the MFC can't be afforded anymore time to 'rebuild' and need immediate improvement. But there is risk in everything. Every trade. Look at what has happened to Clarke.

It's only my view. But I see us as being extremely lucky to have another opportunity and crack at potentially nabbing two of the best mids in this draft and developing them RIGHT. I don't want to hear one post bring up our past failings because the variables involved are now completely different.

It's time to unearth our own stars of the competition.

Petracca

Brayshaw

Viney

Tyson

Salem

Hogan

Under the tutelage of potentially:

Cross

Jones

ROK

Malceski

Vince

Dawes

Lumumba

Vs

Scully

Trengove

Morton

Gysberts

Blease

Strauss

(Who were drafted by a completely different recruiting group headed by possibly the worst recruiter of all time)

Under the tutelage of:

Green

Moloney

Sylvia

Frawley

Jones

Etc

We have been given a golden second opportunity to have a shot at getting it right.

My thoughts anyway..

Who mentioned anything about free agency? It was mentioned in a article a few years back after he made those comments about Tippett leaving the crows.

    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

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season.

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
