  • Podcast: Draft Wrap Up w/Jason Taylor  

Recommended Posts

I'm gonna try and hold my excitement until someone with some credibility come out and says its being discussed. So far all we have is dear old Demonland spawn 7 pages of speculation off very little more than a single unsubstantiated sentence.

I love this time of year.

Hartlett to Demons

Pick 24 GCFC to Demons

Pick 6 MFC to Suns

Howe to Suns

Dixon to Port Adelaide

Just wanted to bump this from a few pages back for those who might have missed it, because it's such a good solid proposal.

It's a genuine win-win-win - all 3 clubs get what they want, while giving up something that they are either gonna lose anyway (Dixon, Howe) or can live without in order to get a bigger prize (Hartlett, and to some degree Howe).

* We get Hartlett & ND24 and lose Howe & ND6.

* Port get Dixon & lose Hartlett.

* GCS get Howe & ND6 and lose Dixon & ND24.

And I'm assuming that as Prestia is said to be "seeing out his contract", we'll pick him up next year not this year.

Im not 100% au fait with the values ..but the dynamics of the merry- go-round seem to work but for me its too dear

A pick of around 1-12 ought to get Hartlett to us... this deal costs us 6 and Howe for HH and 24...thats far too much imho

Deal is perfect.

Everyone wins.

Effectively we give #6 for Hartlett. We get pick 24 for Howe. That's fair currency.

Hartlett walks in as a Top 5 player to MFC ... and remember Howe's 2015 was average at best. An early 2nd rounder is fair.

I prefer my merry go round SONS...in so far as we'd end up with potentially 2 very good mids..albeit no picks

. I dont mind that Pick 24 ?? whats that worth in this draft ? Not a lot Id say

I see your point, they're definitely not bargains.

But I think they're still pretty solid as individual trades - HH for 6 & then 24 for Howe do pinch a bit.

If we could then get, say, Hrovat (not Melksham) for 24, we've given our midfield a major boost for the next few years.

please... I like the idea within SONS trade...much merit.. just for me , possibly a price either too high..or there might be the idea/opportunity that a side trade goes wanting . Otherwise theryre all reasonable ideas I should think. Not all dis-similar in a way..maybe details

Our illustroius FD have proven rather eot of late in pulling rabbits out of hats so Im intrigued (as we all are I supsect ) as to what magic wil lbe conjured this time around :)

Sorry for the typoday all. This is a very drunken message from bali. But I will tell you what I heard tonight. Ollie wines had his heart set on coming to Melbourne. Todd viney rang him 2 days our from the draft to tell him we were not going to pick him. Basically was told we wanted to pick him but we're not sure if we could let Toumpas slide. Ollie was gutted at the time amd for 18 months after. He won't leave port for anyone now as in his words it turned out for the best for him. I can not answer if it was Todd or neeld who said let him slide, my understanding is it was neeld as Todd called Ollie to tell him prior to the draft. The rumour out of port adelaide is they do not expect Hamish hartlett to play there in 2016. He didn't turn up for the footy trip, apparently we offered a huge deal amd if it isn't us, it is sydney.

Ollie knows Jimmy Toumpas from underage level and he said Jimmy will be a seasoned afl player. As much as he initially hated not being picked by us, he understands that politics played there part, but I gathered that he won't leave port adelaide period. To.orrow the melbourne players arrive,
Sorry for typo. I'm drunk. But that's all I can give for now "

Just out of interest, apart from the comments attributed to Caro and those of an inebriated Generation Dee, has there been any confirmation from elsewhere that Port Adelaide is putting Hartlett up for trade bait?

I was going to say the same thing WJ. There has been nothing at all outside of Caro to suggest there is any legs to this rumour. I hope there is, but there isn't too much to it at the moment.

People who consume mushrooms in bali wake up three days later naked in a cold cell being forced to pay a bribe. Chang the bribe to a contract and maybe we could shout Danger a flight to Bali?

Possibly not. My friends in Adelaide are all but Crows supporters..Only Port devotee is only good for deliberations on Para v Hoffmans v .... :rolleyes:

Still that said , and given the Silly season proper hasn't been heralded in just yet there are jungle drums banging away. They go more to the idea of who WON'T be shifted from PA... leaves us mortals to wonder...that's all really :)

Take it for what it's worth, but a PA supporter on BF thinks that Caro's mail on things happening at Alberton are pretty much on the money.

She is generally on the money with the rumours she puts out there.

I'm interested to see if she elaborates on it on Footy Classified tonight.

Negativity Negativity Negativity

Bernie Vince ,Jeff Garlett, Lumumba and Dawes came to Melbourne so why not?

We have a stable coaching structure and a great bunch of young kids led by guys by Hogan and Brayshaw.

We also have plenty of money.

You are a perfect example of the type of poster on here that struggle to READ and interpret at a basic level. Bernie Vince (2013), Garlett, Lumumba and Dawes have nothing to do with the sort of player my entire post was talking about. I don't even know why I bother on here anymore. You basically read my post and then decided to talk about a complete set of different players.

Also, how on earth is it negativity? It is pure fact. Look where the big players go in recent history. We will have to pay up big. I am hopeful as hell, but be realistic people.

It's negativity because you were saying that no one wants to come to Melbourne .

What if we land someone in this period who wants to come to Melbourne, and is a contracted player?

You are a perfect example of a hopeless supporter who revels in shooting those with a little hope of what may come for their beloved team down in flames and sink the boots in.

I'm sorry but I'm not the type to get pleasure from that sort of behaviour and would rather talk up the team I love.

Well if Danger leaves for the Cats, the Crows will have ample space in the cap (like us), but will only be a short trip down the road (unlike us).

Not necessarily. If the Crows match Geelong's offer as expected, there could be a long drawn out trade negotiation, and the Crows would have to factor in Danger's salary until the trade is done. Can't see how they could sign Hartlett until the Danger trade is completed.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    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. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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
