Disagree to an extent. A lot of deals are done before trade week.

Players often nominate the club they want to go to before trade week as well.

I wouldn't be leaving everything to trade week, or you end up with other clubs' scraps.

Some of the best deals are hatched and executed much earlier in the season and at good clubs are kept quiet until they are announced during trade week. Buddy Franklin is one example.

youre probably right irt the T$ deals...and "agreements in principle" but some deals go south left and all over the shop once certain catalyst trades evolve and cement and then theres opportunity etc.

Little id suggest is truly sewn up til it starts unfoldind. So many variables !! imho

Clearly some deals are done late in trade week, some early and some even before it starts.

As they say nothing is final til the papers are lodged.

OK, so now Beams might be going to Sydney, and the word in the media is that the "sick dad" story is secondary to the money.

Beams is EXACTLY what we need.

Get to work boys.

A bit like Mitch and his sick grandma.

Or choosing Geelong because his Mrs got into a course down there.

After we paid for her course in Melbourne.

Interesting development, if true. I'd prefer we took a younger bloke like Shiel before a bloke like Beams.

Collingwood would demand picks 2 and 3. They're hopeless.

I still can't believe how they're already discussing what they'll trade pick 23 for on BF forums. Um, news flash, the reason the deal hasn't happened yet is because we ain't giving you our second rounder. Otherwise the deal would be done by now.

Why should we pick him up? So he can get depression, retire, and then go to whoever he wants for basically nothing?

Now that Collingwood is officially not dealing with Brisbane, do we try and recreate the Clark play from a few years back? (Hopefully with better results).

Logic being that I just can't see him going back to Collingwood after all this has transpired. GC and GWS probably favourites, but we have the picks that could satisfy Collingwood...

Just a thought.

I thought he said his dad wanted the brothers playing at the same club.

I would trade pick 2 and 23 for him. That's a bit better than the Lions' offer.

The whole reason they declined (stupidly) is they want a high pick AND a ready-made player in the Aish/Hanley/Redden/Mayes mould.

Good on Brisbane sticking to their guns.

3 and 12 would get it done for Beams.

Except he'd practically be training next door to the Magpies and wants to go to play with his brother.

Yeah, I get that, doesn't hurt to offer.

Beams is exactly the type of player we need running through the midfield.

Agreed 100%. I'd love to have him here, and he'd know Dawes & Lamumba. Collingwood would agree to picks 3 and 12 as well, I'd reckon.

But he seems pretty keen on going to Queensland... just have a bad feeling about intercepting that desire after the entire Clark debacle... it'll take a while to get over that one.

i agree. Beams doesnt want to stay in melbourne. It will be interesting to see what happens next. Does he play with the pies for 1 more year then walk or does he have a year out.

I would be cautious targeting him if he really wants to go somewhere else, look how that ended last time!

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error. The pleasing thi

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt
