Weren't we linked to Merrett a few weeks back?

Doesn't seem to be much trade action going on with Richmond, Essendon, Bulldosg, West Coast or Adelaide with player recruitment.

That's because trade week hasn't started yet and 99% of these so called potential trades being discussed right now, are pure fallacy.

Interesting listening to Mahoney. Got his head on that bloke (good).

The last bit was curious. I'd expect Watts and Jimmy to be involved as names thrown up from time to time.

I think Josh (as does the club) already knows Frawley will get 3.

Curious as to what/who we will get from the Cattery.

The Filth seem more co-operative than often before.

Well played Josh :)

Summary of today's Trade Radio talk:-

Guy McKenna

McKenna says he was given no specific reason from the club for his dismissal, but was not surprised by the outcome. His sacking comes after a two-week review of the club's football department.

James Frawley

James Frawley has officially left the Melbourne Football Club, telling the club of his intention to exercise his right as an unrestricted free agent.

Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson has confirmed the club's interest in Frawley. Clarkson said today that the club would see how Frawley's situation plays out this week, but the club was definitely still keen on him.

Mitch Clark

Clark's manager Colin Young has told NAB Trade Radio today that Clark's passion for the game is as strong as he's ever seen. It comes after Clark chose Geelong as his preferred club for next season.

St. Kilda

St Kilda's footy boss Chris Pelchen has confirmed his club's number 1 draft pick is still up for grabs, but no clubs have enquired about it yet. Pelchen told NAB Trade Radio they would continue to entertain offers for a trade for the prized pick.

Daniel Gorringe

Port Adelaide has confirmed its interest in Gold Coast ruckman Gorringe who was pick 10 in the 2010 NAB AFL Draft. He wants more opportunities to play senior football.

Summary of today's Trade Radio talk:-

James Frawley

Unrestricted free agent Frawley will almost certainly join the club when the period opens tomorrow, with the Hawks trumping the Cats for the All-Australian defender's services. He will join Brian Lake in the Hawks' defence, who this afternoon agreed to re-sign with the Hawks for season 2015.

Bulldogs

The Western Bulldogs are preparing themselves for a huge assault on this year's NAB Trade and Free Agency period, with CEO Simon Garlick telling NAB Trade Radio the club was in the hunt for Sydney's Sam Reid and Tim Membrey.

With Liam Jones expected to leave the club for the Blues, Garlick said Reid, Membrey and GWS youngster Kristian Jaksch "certainly figure" in their discussions.

James Hird

Today's trade news was surrounded by the controversy at Essendon. Is he still coach at the Bombers?

Kane Lucas

Carlton is preparing to lose out-of-contract midfielder Lucas, with the club confirming on NAB Trade Radio he's on the trade table. Lucas played just seven games this season.

Shaun Higgins

Western Bulldogs CEO Simon Garlick has told NAB Trade Radio they may still match any restricted free agent offer for Higgins who is expected to be offered a contract by the Kangaroos.

Levi Greenwood

Richmond says it has expressed an interest in out-of-contract North Melbourne midfielder Greenwood, but head of football Dan Richardson expects him to stay at the Roos. The Tigers say they don't expect to trade any of their players this season

Daniel Gorringe

Marcus Ashcroft has told NAB Trade Radio the club wants to keep Gorringe, despite him requesting a trade. The Suns are also still in the hunt for Collingwood's Dayne Beams and Sydney's Nick Malceski.

Ahmed Saad

Saad says he will be allowed to return to training at an AFL club on January 1, 2014. He told NAB Trade Radio he had spoken with several AFL clubs, but did not yet have any commitment from a club to sign him.

WJ - Saad is serving an 18 month suspension for taking a banned supplement. The penalty is slightly longer than the three weeks some people are suggesting the Essendon players served with show cause notices will get

North Melbourne has signed former Carlton forward Jarrad Waite to a two-year deal.

The unrestricted free agent will join the Roos in season 2015.

In more good news for Roos fans, the club has also lodged paperwork for Western Bulldogs restricted free agent Shaun Higgins.

The Dogs have 72 hours to match the Kangaroos offer.

Something thats been confusing me is all the players we have been linked to are either KP players or flankers - where are all the midfielders? Merrett, Frost, Lamumba etc we need mids mids mids

Goes with the Roos philosophy of bringing in tall players via trade and targeting midfielders in the draft

Makes sense too, at pick 2 for example Brayshaw will be ready to play senior footy while Wright and Mcartin could take years

We could trade some backs for mids - potentially (hate to say it) Howe, Grimes or Garland (especially if he doesn't sign a contract soon - his last year before FA). Not saying we should.

It would be consistent with Roos 'anyone is tradeable' and his 'trade/FA' philosophies especially if we are eyeing off GWS mids and they need experienced defenders. eg Frost plus a mid for an experienced defender, afterall GWS need to shed players

After listening to Robbie Flower talk of his joy of playing for the team he supported as a kid, getting Stretch would be sweet, and counter to the cynical mercenary money grubbing dross we've had to wade through in recent years...

I'd say there are smoke screens all over the place, mate. Roos seems to be a master of this. We'll quietly go about our business and you watch. We'll land a decent mid or two this off season.

Nathan Brown talking about the fact the Blues didn't get a compo pick for Waite. Says that it's unfair that Dees will get something for Frawley but Carlton won't.

Then says you can't base it on age…… Half of the compo pick is based on the players age! What an absolute [censored] he is an idiot it is unfathomable that these guys

get paid for this.

Problem is these hacks are speculating because the AFL doesn't disclose the formula. No point complaining about Frawley, the compensation is based on what the Hawks are willing to pay him, and thats a hefty contract. These people need to stop comparing players directly and saying he is worth this or that...

I still think the compensation should also be factoring in what the club that the player is leaving from is prepared to pay to keep the player.... I think that almost says more about the worth of the player than the contract offered by the new club!

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    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
