Another day,  and no news.

Doubt Brown is coming to Melbourne, would have been confirmed by now.

Ridiculous logic. He's not staying at North and he hasn't nominated any new club yet. Maybe he's going to nominate for Elon Musk one way trip to Mars?

Watch Geelong turn their attention to Brown now, now they can't get Cameron for free...  🙄

This logic implies Brown is a FA, which of course, he's not. I think the Cats will get Cameron regardless. They see a gun forward wanting to come to them, they get the deal done. Smith and Higgins will cost them nix. Why would a GF team with 3 late first rounders refuse to trade for a gun key forward that fills a need? Brown would be a compromise on what they could get. We don't have that luxury, unfortunately

This is a strong possibility with reports that GWS are matching the Cats offer for Cameron. 

That’s just so that GWS can get more in return for Cameron and they have said all along that if they aren’t happy with the compensation pick that’s what they would do. The geriatrics want cameron and will do a deal. 
 

Their members expect him to be at the geriatrics next season given its been made public. Don’t stress.

Yeah maybe.

Or maybe there are other clubs besides Melbourne after him and in that case we will likely lose out.

My logic is flawless.

I understand the GWS side of the equation and it would have been negligent of them not to do this.

I'm not sure Geelong want to have to give up what they're going to need to now to satisfy GWS.

Brown will be a cheaper option for them in terms of what they have to give up.

I'm not saying it will play out that way but it very well could and is the most likely stumbling block for us getting Brown now.

No matter what happens with GWS matching i guarantee you there is ZERO chance Geelong would back down from their commitment to Cameron.

Probably not but at least they don't get him without having to pay GWS compensation out of their own pocket.

This has been the biggest issue that many have with the Free Agency model that is benefitting clubs like Geelong.

Agree.

As much as i dislike the Cats you can't deny they are a well run organisation and will get the job done.

No need to worry this if from the article on the AFL site put up just now:

 

“Cameron's agent Alex McDonald confirmed on Trade Radio this week that his client had no intentions of returning to the Giants and was set on a future with Geelong”. 
 

Can u imagine the supporters backlash if he doesn’t get there. It would be more feral than usual.

Agree but the formula would have given them a mid level first rounder I assume.

If trading with Geelong they must want a player as well

By your logic, he's not going anywhere because he hasn't announced it yet.

Pretty big offer by the cats and now matched by gws for a 24 goal forward. I don't think gws really want him at his asking price but the cats have committed to him and gws have called their bluff. Awesome 

Wow, may need some popcorn for this one, ladies & Gents🤔

Geelong have 3 first round picks don't they? Probably can work a trade for a player with one to a 3rd club.

If we are going to trade out Pruess and the 2 Macs we will need to bring in a tall. Brown may as well be it.  He is good on the lead Our forward line is like a dogs breakfast no one except the opposition backs seem to know where ours mids are going to kick it.

If we trade out TMac &  then BBrown gets snaffled by the Geelong $ 

We are stuffed

Why would Brown want to go to a club who views him as their second option when there are other clubs that view him as their first?

In his very limited exposure under Goodwin this year, I saw Baker playing an expanding game and thoughtful form benchmarks that cast aside the 'ginger ninja' cacophony, replacing it with a concept of 'predator' for the ball, for space and for the opportunity to run with that ball to good effect. When our team realises this attribute, he's going to be a target in space, early and rampant. Don't ya reckon?

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
