Potential Trades [Warning: Reading this thread may self-destruct]

Strippers.

Wouldn't recommend it. They're as ragged as they come over there.

Edit: Is ragg-ed a word? Maybe I mean haggard.

So far I have heard

Lumumba for Clark

Robinson for Blease

any others?

Haven't heard of Robinson for Blease but I am not adverse to the idea. Robinson and Garlett could head up our Entertainment Committee!

Hi All.

I would just like to let everyone know that my post regarding Kennedy was a genuine post from a good friend/source. You can check my history in 'topics'. I started a thread in June stating that Frawley was gone and the club understand this. This was way before anybody thought he was actually going. My source has always been on the ball, so I will back the information I was given in. To the mods, please leave this thread up.

Thanks guys,

Go Dees

Collingwood are stalling this whole trade period. Why cant we just trade Clark for Geelongs 2nd rounder and then ontrade it to H when/if they get their [censored] together. Why are we letting their own deals block our Mitch Clark deal

I'd rather HL push e'd in the moosh & bath him in the Yarra... that should do it just fine.

then we can pick him psd

... for Varcoe ffs.

no way, he was off 'No Doubt', to speak to others players, in the middle of trade week.

we need to open an office there, its a good idea.

If Bucks met Varcoe in Bali, who is there for Roos to meet in Hawaii?

that ones next year CBDees

give us time... to get the word about.

We'll need our third rounder for Stretch, would've thought...

We are committed to use our Round Three for Stretch: no options!

This is a disaster for all concerned. Clearly it disrupts the grand plan. I am unaware of what MFCs plans, whether that is to cover with another player or change tact. Truely aweful news. All the best to JT, his injury us now very much career threatening.

I will still unriddle at weeks end.

If the grand plan was all dependent on the Trengove deal then the club ain't as well run as I had thought, so in theory the deal to land a star could have also been scuttled by Trengove telling the club he wanted to remain and not be traded, or would have we lent on him?

It was also stated in the original claim that the plan would see us end up with:

"2 A Graders plus pick 2 which you would assume is being saved for Brayshaw "

but clarified to include:

"Also pick 2 may need to be downgraded slightly, but only to a level that Roos is still likely to get the player he wants"

If these claims are true then the Trengove deal falling over shouldn't mean the deals are off, surely at worst it would mean we now have to give up the downgraded pick 2 to complete the deals which I am sure no-one would object to if it resulted in us landing and I quote:

"The 2 players would enter our list as the 2 best players on our list"

Is it fair to ask if GNF is using the Trengove deal falling through as a way to back away from his earlier claims after some disquiet re the riddles and guessing games?

Think it's pretty obvious why everything would hinge on the Trengove deal, as shown by the almost unanimous comments that "2 and 3 is overs" for Kennedy.

2 and 12 (or 3 and 12) would have been a very different kettle of fish.

Or fowl.

I can see logically why it would be included in the deal but to allow the deal to hinge solely on it seems fairy diabolical considering the guy has hardly played for 18 months, had recently experienced pain again, you would expect any club would do a thorough Medical before taking him plus he still has to agree to the trade himself, you'd hope they thought of a scenario for if the deal did not go through because of these issues it was never a straight forward trade

Don't let us get you down, we're Melb fans and have been a little battered recently. By recently I mean 8 or so years.

You would think pick 23 trumps pick 25 for Greenwood and we would have more cash and opportunity to sell to him. If he's the best mid on the move we should be having a go.

My only hope is that we might be waiting for the Lumumba deal to go through first and then we pounce. But it seems it's all part of one big deal that will go through at the same time so we may miss out.

I think if we could land Greenwood, in addition to Lumumba, Garlett and Frost and taking picks 2 & 3 to the draft, most would call that a win and we would have improved our list.

Saints mate has little info from within and was sure they would take Petracca with pick 1 if they kept it. Mentioned Stanley to Geelong and he seemed a little thrown and agreed that made their need for a KPF more desperate.

Conclusion, who knows.

If Mitch Clark to Geelong is problematic, and he is determined for a start at a new club (for health reasons); then surely we should be looking at dealing with St Kilda or Western. Just think of the potential deals that could be generated with these clubs. Then of course there are also the Roo's, Crows, Dockers, etc who should be interested, even the Pies.

and I'm pretty sure his medical advice didn't say he had to play for the Cats!!!

Of course Clark doesn't have to accept the club the Dee's organise for him, but neither do the demons have to accommodate a trade, leaving the draft or pre-season draft as his remaining option to continue an AFL career - which of course will likely see him wearing 'three colours"!!!

Our most likely scenario is we take pick 2 and 3 to the draft and trade pick 23 for the best 23-26 yo, experienced on-baller we can get. That will give us a better balance in terms of age and experience. 23 is not a bad pick given the no of F/S before it so good chance of an excellent 'slider' to be picked up.

I understand that. I also conceded the Roos appear to be satisfied with with the Pies offer.

But if he is the best mid on the move and all our other plans have fallen through the club may try to muscle in just as the Dogs may try to do with Frost.

We have the better pick and could offer more cash. I guess there is the bit about us being rubbish though so he may not be interested but nothing is final until the paperwork goes through.

Had a closer look at possible use for pick 23. Swans and Hawk first live pick is 58 and 43/59 respectively. Earlier picks gone on F/S and O'Rourke. Swans have sal cap to manage and Hawks want to get back earlier picks (they have put some players up for trade to do this but it appears none that interest us).

Would imagine our recruiters have been working the phones since Trengove deal fell thru so maybe Swans or Hawks are the best chance of getting a good trade for a B++ on-baller.

Or! Port may be looking for a low 2nd round pick to get Ryder deal over the line and that may release one of their on-ballers. A B++ player from any of those 3 teams would be a good get I would think.

I can't understand Hallahan wanting to go to gc17.

He won't be in their first, second or third midfield rotation.

They've offered him a three year deal on decent money, something he wasn't even close to getting at the Hawks. I'd jump at it too.

Anyone for a last minute deal that looks like this:

Our pick 3 and 23 to Adelaide/Gold Coast for their pick 8/9 + A grade player? We still get the DL faves of Brayshaw and Lever but a ready-to-go-now player (instead of drafting for #23)

Glad I'm out for the day rather than refreshing DL every five min.!

    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

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

    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

    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?

    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

    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
