TBH he has his detractors, and may be the tallest small forward going around but I'd back him to kick more goals than Weideman every day of the week........and by a fair margin.

If the Dees have no intention in trading for Ben King. I can see the Dees adding Jenkins to the list as he will come cheapish!

I would consider Levi Casboult before Jenkins.

As I said to a crows mate:

third round pick? They pay his entire salary 

fourth round pick? We go 50-50

fifth round pick? Whoever gets him pays him

No for me....

$800k per year, thinks he's a star & plays bruise free footy.

Looks for the easy kick every time & Goodwin, I presume, wouldn't what his style of game at the Dees. Very athletic & mobile but someone needs to grab him & change the way he plays & he could be effective......backline may suit him.

Grossly overated.

I think JJ has upside, he reads the play very well for a Fwd and it would allow Tom Mc to do what he does best and get on his bike. 

I wonder if there were the same reservations about recruiting Garlett when we did. Just for a minute imagine if JJ snags 30 goals for us, Tom gets 45, and Melk gets 25. That's a good spread, plus 20+ for Bailey, and hopefully Weid.

Wouldn't mind him, but he's on a large wage. Unless Adelaide paid more than 50% of his wage, I wouldn't go anywhere near it.

Yep and that's a fair point and a really valid reason to stay away but i dont think its all doom and gloom if he landed and we negotiated a lower pay scale which he said he is willing to take.

Says he would take a pay cut to get out of there!, i'd take him for $500k a year, hes effectively replacing Tim Smith.  We need scoring options and this bloke is one.

I agree that we are in need of another KPF until either Tom's toe gets better, Petty comes on, or Weid's is found after being MIA this whole season.

A pricier upgrade on a rookie listed player thats for sure. I'm slightly coming around to the idea of him especially after saying he'd take a massive paycut to play at another club. On a side note though, would we be paying anything in terms of picks for him?

Adelaide being Adelaide will certainly want pick/s, can’t hurt to ask what they’d let him go for and how much of his salary would they cover? Could be similar to the Watts trade where they cover a part of his wage 🤷🏼‍♂️

Agree.  Here's hoping we'd be asking the right questions around him re money and any potential picks. Can't imagine Adelaide would have much bargaining power given how bad their relationship is with Jenkins now.

He'll be 31, not chasing, not tackling, not crashing packs, bobbing up on twitter and SEN whilst playing for Casey.

I don't care if he cost 500k or 5k I don't see the appeal.

Take the chance with an athletic junior or state league player and save the cash for a shot at Ben King if Weid or Petty don't work out.

27-29 maybe but 31 years old, no thank you. Plus he’s a seagull crab.

Surely.. we are better off backing Sam Weideman in than chasing JJ 

He's a million years old and doesn't even play as a key forward. 

at least Weid has some talent and a future at the level if he can put it together.

It might just be me, but i feel that Weids doubts his own ability. Someone at the club needs to sit him down a continually show him his games in the finals last year.

He sure as [censored] has the ability, time for him to truly believe in himself, step out of his passive shadow and become the assertive forward we saw in September last year.

Baffling when they already have Stanley who is a better player.  They need a real ruckman, I guess that's why they went hard after Goldstein.  They could actually do worse than Preuss.

The age factor is there but let's say we got him very cheap DS and Weid (just speculating) is a bust after another 8 games or so of trialling in 2020.  No Bull Smith.  We are starting to plumb the depths a little in terms of support for T-Mac in the KF stakes.  And what if he Tommy doesn't cut the mustard in 2020 or incurs a new injury?  Not saying he will and hoping otherwise but need to look at the  "what ifs".  Especially MFC luck with injuries, anything's possible.

If we got two reasonable years and an improvement on what the Weid brings at the moment?  All stats point to a fair upgrade in comparison.  Might be the difference between a bounce vs a slim finals shot next season?  Two years max on small coin and we have some KF depth/insurance.  Maybe a win win?  Normally i wouldn't even consider JJ but beggars can't be choosers and in JJ's case there's no begging.  He wants out!...

    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

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. 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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    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

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place.

    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?

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday.

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
