Can't see him going back to the pies after this. Will be very interesting to see where he ends up.

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

I've just read the post about Beams fathers illness severity.

its gotta be a 3 way deal; or its another player we want the pick for?

Someone on the Trenners thread is stating Beams is close to trade to us.

Even if it happens how the hell would it work with his old man so ill. He should be traded or sit out until he is able to give 100%.

It brings back bad vibes of almost the same thing that happened with Mitch..

Makes me really, really nervous that we'd consider this so soon after the Clark disaster.

I think we all wish we'd never intercepted that trade with Freo. Nice to see Neeld's legacy come full circle as a complete and utter disaster in every single way.

Do elaborate? Is it him scoring 120+ supercoach every week....getting 32 touches and kicking 3 goals.....in black and white.....that bugs me also. Would feel much better if he did it in red and blue though!

I'd like to see Melbourne trade for Beams if for no other reason than to see the massive tanty Greg Swann would throw when pick 3 is included in the deal.

I don't think we're making a move for Beams. It's Danger or someone else that hasn't figured in discussions as yet. I reckon we won't put all our eggs in one basket and keep one of 2 or 3. That's all I can think of - we need to give a few more away.

Or is it the extra 5 - 10 possessions Jones and Tyson will each get because the opposition sends their best tagger to Beams?

If we make that play for Beams, we will have another Clark on our hands. We do not need to be a stepping stone for players, we need to be the destination. Beams will wait out the year at the pies then go to the Lions.

Stevo mentioned tonight on 7 dont discount melbourne going after beams and may involve there pick 3. No way should we do that. I just know he will want to go back home.

There's a rather delicious irony if the priori...Frawley compo pick secures us Beams and [censored] over Swann, especially after his little tanty the other week.

What exactly would be the Lions plan next year to trade him in? They'll have picks with worse currency and will still refuse to trade any players to Collingwood for him.

He won't make it through the PSD to them, and if he does, Collingwood are giving him up for nothing?

AFLPA are pushing to get the time limit lowered for free agency. He will be the poster boy for this cause, sick dad a club that doesn't play nice and Geelongs example of helping a player on compassionate grounds. That and Brisbane will make it happen and get the picks need to make the trade. His management will work the same angles as Ryder's and apply public pressure. Could you imagine the public views of the filth if Beam's father dies. The pies would become bigger social pariah's than the already are, and that would be quite a feat even for them.

Can't see why Beams is Clark 2.0. Different person, different brain, different personal circumstances.

I'm all for learning from the past, but the only thing to learn from that particular past is that Clark is a douche. The rest is irrelevant.

Those who had Beams in their supercoach sides and watched him closely - will be happy to see this trade happen.

Footballers footballer. Goal kicking midfielder, gets his ball on the inside and out. I thought he was Collingwoods best this year.

Exceptional player and extremely unlikely pick 3 would become half the player Beams is.

There's a lot to be said about the character of a guy who chooses money over family.

None of us know the exact situation, I wouldn't be too quick to judge.

These are professional footballers, with a short career that could be ended every time they step onto the field. I don't begrudge them their right to maximise their income.

In any case, not sure what more Beams could have done to get to Brisbane?

But now the cat's out of the bag, hard to see him going back either - though Dustin Martin tried his hardest to leave Richmond and had to eventually back down. On that note, will be interesting to see who calls whose bluff re Griffin/dogs.

I posted this on the Trengove thread and personal circumstances are slightly different but

  • Clark wanted to return to Perth due to homesickness and a sick relative
  • Beams wants to return to Qld due to a sick father
  • Clark made an 11th hour change of heart due to more money being thrown at him
  • Beams father is still sick nothing has changed
  • AAMI Park and the Westpac Centre are the same distance form Qld
  • The Suns play in Qld but Paul Connors has told them Beams wants to play in Brisbane
  • Brisbane have more money in their salary cap and have offered a large pay increase to Beams
  • Gold Coast do not have as much salary cap room and the offer to Beams would not be as large
  • Beams father lives closer to the Gold Coast then he does to Brisbane
  • and Beams father is still sick, if my father was sick the Pies would trade me because they would already have been told I would sit the year out and spend it with my father as I would forever regret not spending that valuable time with him

and I don't care what money they pay me it can't by that valuable time

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    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.

    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
