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.

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

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.

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?

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
