That's a different argument. He's got currency now, so if we have to give up something good to address our deficiencies, then it's worth discussing.

 

So give away a potential10 yr key forward  that will create further decencies. 

Pedersen has 1 year left, so what happens when he retires

True. Kelly may have gone past him, but Shiel has been doing it for years now. 

I'm very intrigued by the Shiel comment though. @Brayshaw Self, is he on the table or is he seeking a trade? Bizarre, if they've put him on the table.

GWS are yet to decide if he is available but there are discussions about a trade for a top 3 pick at the moment.

Just passing on what I hear. Nothing is set in stone yet as the season is still going. Just because things don't happen doesn't mean they were never happening.

And just because you 'hear' something off Facebook doesn't mean it's fact, which is what you are trying so hard to pass it off as.  Keep trying though, you throw enough darts then you'll hit the board at some stage.

I forgot that this thread was called trade facts.

Mate, I'm literally passing on second hand information from AFL club staff. I don't think you've grasped the concept of this thread.

AFL club staff?  Right.

I heard that the 'Bont' wants out and has nominated the Dees as his club of choice if we can get the deal done.  Sick of the party culture.

Get it done, Dees.

Why are you being such a c*ck?

Sheez.

Trade 'rumours'.

I'm with Wiseblood. This is a piece of crock. The notion that GWS would even consider trading an established star in Shiel for a top 3 pick is ludicrous. They are in their Premiership window now, and Shiel is a key component.

The line "GWS are yet to decide if he is available" suggests that your source is someone trying to bignote themselves.

As good a place as any, though I'd be very surprised if anything came of it. Still ...

"It is understood the Suns sought out Melbourne assistant and Level Four coach Jade Rawlings for a preliminary discussion. It is not clear if the 39-year-old will be formally interviewed. Rawlings has been the Demons' backline assistant since 2012 and has developed a strong resume through stints with the Brisbane Lions and Richmond, where he was caretaker coach for 11 rounds in 2009.

Because it's complete and utter rubbish.  It's not a rumour, it's garbage.

Shout out to @Lucifer's Hero who is never far away from a like when someone takes a pot shot in my direction.  Good to see you, too.

There is a good chance that by the time next season comes along they, the AFL, will have changed the Rules so much, that outside speed won't be anywhere near as much in demand as what it is this season. A little tinkering in the middle, like no nomination, could possibly make crowding out further a reality and reduce congestion in close, thus speeding things up, only cleaner.

Aside from this we don't deliver well inside 50, do we?

The way you reacted to Brayshaw self's couple of posts is not far off Satys approach mate - whether it's rubbish or not it came across as being completely OTT.

Oh, that's low. Almost too low from you, Steve. 

OTT or not, it was still garbage.

Watch this space. The game is becoming a congested slog as players lurch from one contest to the next, broken up each time not by clearing the ball but by the umpires stepping in to put everyone out of their misery. Will be interesting to see what if anything the AFL and the Rules Committee do.

For the moment, I don't know that I'd be putting all my recruiting eggs into insiders only - even if we did just see the Bombers bundled out because of a lack of them.

Wasn't Andrew Daff a doctor at the club? I reckon Jane02 might of been confused with what she heard.

No guys, I know Dr Daff's sister and he is currently working for Richmond and is not acquainted with Jane02. Jane02 got her info from  Gaff family memeber who happens to be a health professional (note I did not say doctor). What Gaff wants and how West Coast play it may be different. I am sure MFC are aware of Gaff's interest but whether they can make it reality is a different matter.

I thought the response from The Wise One was a fine bit of satire, equalling in response to the spirit that was suggested by the statement that this thread is for 'Trade Facts'... lol

Maybe this thread should be renamed 'ridiculous trade rumours' ???

Seems to me that any rumour here is (at very best) speculation and more often than not, full of bs and should be taken as such

But I like the party culture bit, that's a club I'd like to be a member of. What's that quote by Groucho Marx about not sure they'd want me as a member?

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
