Good news.

Given he's out of contract and North have contributed to pushing him out, I would have thought pick 23 (which is now pick 25) is about right.

There are no certainties in football and there's no certainty this is going to work for us, but I like the move and I think there's a strong chance this will make us a better side in 2021 and beyond.

Look forward to yelling ‘Sideshow’! As he takes a mark and nails the goal from 50 many times at the ‘G!!!

A good nickname is multi-dimensional with a degree or two of seperation. 

With that in mind, I think his nickname should be 'Bobby' as in Sideshow Bob and Bobby Brown.

HUGE get. I don’t think some on here quite realise how important this is.

For years we’ve had no issues getting it into our forward 50 but conversion has been the issue. This guy is the answer to this massive problem we’ve had.

The only query was whether he was okay injury wise but our medical team has given him the tick of approval so it’s full steam ahead.

What a signing he will be, great stuff Dees!

He's also going to be a decoy forward to some extent, at least. This is also very good; it will reduce the onus on the Weed and Fritta so they can get stuck into it as alternative targets as BBrown leads out or moves to space just a little, dragging one or two opposition defenders with him and with his mobility, speed and possible distance achieved from goal, congested gaps will disappear leaving space, space and fewer oppo defenders. It is all very good news. Now, for the midfield clearances ...

I dunno @Cheesy D. Pun - a good nick name never needs a walk-through explanation.

If we had him in 2018, dead cert's for the premiership!

To be fair mate. This one was common knowledge 

Your modesty is admirable good sir! However, in all honesty, the Smith to Dees move was also pretty much common knowledge and expected by all and sundry, until he did an 11th hour u-turn.

I reckon that pick is overs for him, something early 30's is his range, hopefully the pick we get for Preuss will be the Pick 30 GWS received for free agent and we on trade that.

Next year's second round pick... that would (or should) be in the 30's.

Agree. Fritta may benefit with a few more chances as a result of this.

Our current pick 25 will end up sliding to 35-40 with all the free agency picks and academy bids, I'd rather give that than next years second rounder where next years draft will be stacked with talent.

Fair point. My thinking was that this might give us some more leverage when it comes to further trades this year (I assume we're still looking at a winger and possibly a small forward).

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
