Haha funny you say that... Maybe too many shite tattoos?

I'd have to agree with that.

Doesn't stop him playing some good footy though!

You know what? I've heard some horrible stuff about him, but I also worry that subconsciously I just hate him because of those God awful tattoos. I don't mind a good tough sticker, but he looks horrible.

But, I try to be objective and I think I just really don't like the type of person he is.

Just me, I guess.

I take it you know him personally?

I couldn't care less about his tatts. As long as he adds to our list and the trade is reasonable. The rest is bullsht.

Just me, I guess.

25+ possessions in 14 of 18 games and multiple goals in 7 of them. Add 5 possessions each to Tyson and Jones each game on top of that I reckon.

Would make a significant difference to our side.

Nope.

And you can call it [censored] all you like, that's fine.

I trust the people I've spoken to, and it seems to be backed up by popular opinion.

I won't support anyone simply because they are on the list, or can play.

Just me.

I know some are saying the situations are different and every situation is but if Beams is using his sick father to get out of Collingwood then it's pretty low I reckon. Clark used depression to get out of Melbourne, similar I think. I wouldn't trust Beams if that's the way he does business.

Similar because both seem to have a value system based around money.

I haven't read all of this thread but I think 'Pennant' mentioned something about taking time out to be with his father. If his father is in really bad shape then the only honourable thing to do is to go home, trade or no trade.

Not interested in a genuine A-GRADE mid with 8 years of footy left in him? Ok.

Doesn't strike me as the type to have 8 years left in him. All of those drug fueled finals campaigns would take it out of you.

Collingwood say he wants out for personal reasons but I say there is a reason they don't want him and that is my hesitation - I had the same hesitation with Dawes and my instincts where correct on that one too - way overs and hasn't come close to justifying what we gave up for him. I do like his ability to take out the opposition with brutality which I can't argue with.

If there is one club I don't want to pay overs for a player it's Collingwood. Something stinks about there demand for a high pick and a good young player. I can smell the stench from a mile a way - they are kidding themselves and I hope our guys can see through it.

We don't want beams. He wants to go north. He doesn't want to play for a vic team so i doubt we would want him.

All rubbish

Agreed. He's being severely underrated on this board, partly due to his playing for Collingwood, partly due to the fact that to get him we may be trading Trengove.

You're a complete fool then.

Well the Dees would be fools if they gave up anything close to want they are asking.

Collingwood are on the search for a club foolish enough to give up high draft picks to help them build a talented list and have the done the same thing the last few years to improve there draft position. They're giving up players who might be at the top of there game right now and are excellent bait to hang on the line but these players are more than likely going to trend downwards over the next few years in performance and Collingwood can see that coming.

I'd be way more interested to go and watch a talented youngster drafted at 23 develop than watch Beams. Doesn't get me excited at all and more than anything I reckon he's the wrong fit for our club.

Few things guys, beams is an amazingly good player.

He is worth giving up pick 3 for.

Edit: Collingwood did not want him to leave.

Wouldn't touch him unless we could get his brother down from Brisbane.

Would it be out of order to try to reunite both Beams boys at the club and bring dad to Melbourne?

Yes of course it is.

You realise his dad has cancer. You realise all his doctors, his mates, his support staff are up north? Are you going to help him find a new house, a new doctor, a new support base, new mates etc just to improve the team? Some people really don't think.

It's not just about football you know.

IMO Beams seems more and more risky as it unfolds with the changing messages surround why he wants to leave. If he was of an upstanding character he would be honest with Buckley and Collingwood and tell them of his concerns and deal with them with integrity. If there was a breakdown in relationship not addressing up front speaks to his character. If faced with a breakdown I am sure Collingwood would trade like they are willing to do with Lumumba. That type of player regardless of how good he is should not be at MFC. If it is for the ilness of Dad then the Pies are just delusional, power hungry muppets Let him go to QLD Pies!

thats what I'm getting atmo, Re the issues surrounding his separation from the Pies. Understandable if its his fathers ailing health, but if the Pies are pushing out a great player, Why?

I wish I had something to believe.

The Pies are desperately trying to keep him.

But their actions are obviously quite harmful, and there's no way he'll sty.

Who said the pies want him to go, when it first broke that HE requested the trade it sounded much more like they were spewing!!

Given his dad lives in Gold Coast, not brissy, & he would only entertain brissy's offer of massive $$ & to play with his brother, plus hating Buckley, these were always clearly the main motivation for Beams, not his sick father (who gave him no structure or discipline in life apparently & is on the road to recovery with the cancer in remission). I reckon the fathers illness was a smoke screen for the colliwobbles to 'justify' why a gun who they clearly rate internally wanted to leave their 'club'...... Gee, it wouldn't be like Eddie to push a cover story in the media to protect his love child Buckley & beloved Pies hey?!?

Exactly! This is about 'stuff you Buckley' & getting the biggest pay day possible. If it meant he could play with his brother in sunny brissy, all the better.

I reckon Buckley is just pizzed he never won a premiership & he doesn't value the premiership players still at the Pies, he mismanaged soo many senior players now it's not funny, the noises started with Jolly no?

HL, Swan, Jolly, Dids, Shaws, Beams, Dawes, Thomas etc etc. (a lot of talent there)

These blokes could perform for mad mick without complaint but not bucks.....

Who knows, we land HL & Beams to go with Dawes & we might have Steele & Pendles knocking on our door by 2016! ;-p

Ha! Obviously, we got HL & Garlett coming over with plenty of baggage ;-p

What garbage that no DH thing is! Very subjective in the first place & who says what constitute one or doesn't? Someone may do a DH thing once but otherwise be an awesome bloke. And imo there were plenty of DH's in Sydney when Roos was there starting with big bad overrated bazza & ending in hannebery (at least I think they are DH's but I would be happy if we had players who had their talents playing for us regardless!)

Now...is there any serious talk of Beams being in a trade deal to MFC or is it just stuff made up here?

Who is reporting this stuff and do they have real info or are they just reading 'Demonland'?

    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

    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).

    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.
