Trade rumours


Big T Mac

Recommended Posts

Lever to Dees, Trengove to Dogs, Kelly to re-sign, these are certain. 

Hawks are making a big play for Whitfield and are waiting for Board approval to be able to offer up the player that will be required to possibly get the deal done. If the Board approves, it will be Rioli & Duryea for Whitfield.

Rioli?  I think they'd be lynched by the fans if they did that.

Tom McDonald played a few good games as a forward and it seems people now believe that Weed should be moved on? If I have learnt anything from my time at demonland it's that posters put way too much weight on a few good performances from individuals

If his first half against Box Hill didn't show you why he was rated so highly then I can't help you.

Lol.

I saw Bruce McAvaney looking at real estate in Western Sydney so it must be true. He said the region was special but I think he was exaggerating a touch.

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.

Only when they refer to your comments that are OTT, insulting to a poster or are high horsed about something.  Don't know why you signalled me out - others respond the same way to similar posts but whatever.

..tbh I'm surprised anyone tracks the likes to their own posts, let alone likes to other people's posts about them but whatever.

He is a key forward 2 years down.  Give the kid sometime. 

Stupid and ridiculous comments on here

How is Charlie Curnow going ? Some  Posters on here seem to think potential is more important than reality. That is rediculous!

Different circumstance and traits have allowed Curnow to show 'more' than Weideman at this stage.

I don't know why that's so difficult to see.

If you were to ask anyone at the club, they'd say the same thing and I'm sure they would have expected to see Curnow play more regular footy than Weed early on.

Context is everything in this argument.

Weideman will be much better placed to play more regular football next year but I don't think we'll see big inroads made until 2019 from Sam.

Ah the normal anger/tanties that get thrown in the thread about trade rumours is bloody hilarious.

I read some, think utter shite and move on. I enjoy the crazy left field "rumours".

if people don't post where they heard/got the info I hold it as .01%, if they post it as I heard it from a second hand source, 1%.

If they have proven good info before 10%.

That way I'm not going to be annoyed if they don't come true.

Makes this thread more interesting.

So because one player has developed a little quicker than another, then you get rid of them?

Yep you sure do or you dont select them in tbe first place as projects

This club has zero ability to develop players and  should leave it  to those who have shown that they can

Only a different opinion to you

I'm happy for a difference of opinion but you need to have a basis for it. 

The players weren't developed well in the past but the calibre of the kids we have and how quickly they are developing in the last few years would be the envy of most clubs.  In conjunction with this you have also seen more experienced players get better also.  

If we take your thinking Gawn would have been delisted after his 2nd year.

Hunt and Jetta said to say hello and thanks for not being the list manager when they were recruited.

Lachie Whitfield has apparently just signed for two years with the Giants.

Here is the confirmation, DJ.  http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-09-13/gun-giant-extends-his-deal-until-2020

He has extended to end of 2020.

Constantly baffles me to see posters get so worked up about a "rumours" thread.

Especially if the poster is relatively new to the place, let them build up credits or demerit points before writing them off.

Wow.

You're okay to let Weideman keep spudding it up until 2019 now. 

Don't get me wrong, I wish him all the best fortune for a successful and long career at the MFC but your double-standards and contextualisation of the current circumstances only leads to hypotheticals of which the above post is chock-a-block full of.

If Whitfield stays then I reckon Kelly goes. What of Connor's management staff told a friend last week that kelly would go to North. Another Connor leak 

Can you rephrase that OD, I have no idea what you are trying to say.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    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
