My grandmas toaster told me that Kent for balic could work out for everyone. I tend to agree. Kent has seen others leapfrog him, and balic is a kid trying to get back to his home state, never really settled over there. 

I've always liked toast and Kent for Balic sounds like a good trade to me.

Just had a chat with Dr.Turf about the whole Watts trade at work. Said he spoke to Rocket Eade and there are big rumblings about Hogan involved in a 4 way trade with Freo/Carlton/Adelaide/Melbourne. In summary, Hogan to Freo Lever to Dees.

He said he hopes not, but that's what he heard.

 

Absolute rubbish that we would entertain trading Hogan to acquire Lever! ?

Completely agree. Turfy was gobsmacked when he was telling me. He wasn't confident, but that's what he heard. Just thought I'd pass on the info of the chat I had with him]

It would be staggering without doubt. 
Do you not think Dr Turf ( and brother ) just might have some handy lines of info ?

I am sure that there are a few around who have 'handy lines of information' but we are talking about Lever here not Sloane! Hogan for Lever is paying way 'overs' and not even Prendergast would have contemplated such a trade! ?

I dont see it as likely either if for the Lever/Hogan aspect. That is if thats all there really is to it. 

Its always been my concern that Hogan is EXACTLY what Lyon needs at Freo...and right now

Freo have pick 5.  Ive not the time right now to sit and work on a convoluted  trade-around but Im not dismissing the idea out of hand. Not until 2.00pm on Thursday the19th

I'm starting to get concerned with the amount of Hogan to Freo rumours that keep surfacing. Where there is smoke there is fire. Many website and papers coming out this rumour from a similar angle.

 

They're mostly coming out of the Freo camp. There may be some truth it to but I dont think we'd be looking to offload Watts if Hogan was on the way out.

Regardless, while I'm admittedly in the "Trade Watts" camp, if there's any inkling that Hogan won't stay long term, it would be a mistake to offload Watts unless there is talent coming directly into the forward from his trade. There's no doubt that trading Watts stands as a huge risk.

If Hogan did want to go I'd be looking to use the picks we get for him to get Lynch from GC.

I highly doubt he's leaving though.

Agreed. We already paid 2 x first rounders for Hogan and since then he's proven himself at this level. If we were gonna lose him then that deal would be one I could well and truly live with.

Maybe l misread it. However the day comes that Jack does leave, the Watts critics will regret it and the simple minded ones that bag him constantly won't know what to do with themselves. 

The critics wont regret anything...

I hope and think if he is traded to another side he will prepare and play to the level as expected.

His best football is elsewhere and not at the MFC. No one loses out of this trade. Win MFC-Win Jack. 

If Jack has a tremendous 2018 at another club. It does'nt mean he would have had a tremedous season at the MFC.

I think talk about Hogan being traded is BS...

But if it was on the cards. The Dees would already have had conversation with a key forward recruit.

Tom Lynch would be the man...

This thread is about rumuors so if Hogan was to go. I would think this is a fair scenario;

Fremantle IN- Hogan

Melbourne IN- Lynch

Gold Coast IN- Pick 5, Freo first round 2018

Dreamin'

Don't forget who owns the Suns. Lynch is a current Captain and contracted for at least another season. 

The AFL's investment is looking desperate at the moment. A new coach will come in and Gil will make sure this doesn't happen. 

I can't possibly imagine any trade that would compensate for Hogan going. As a very gifted key forward, a very very rare commodity he's worth a hell of a lot more than an intercept backman no matter how good Lever is. 

The draft would be no good to us and I can't think of a player who would fill the hole. Can't see why the Club would offload JW in these circumstances. 

The place is gone to hell if this happens. Will put us back years structurally. No forward again.

Wonder if this is going on in the background whether they would consider Stringer. Would he be an upgrade on JW? I'd rather keep JW but I certainly wouldn't rather get rid of JW and have no one. 

I choose to think it's all crap until the trades are finalised.

Can we all Agree that a Hogan trade would need to be at min 2 first round draft picks , and in this supposedly shallow draft pool  picks 1-10 standouts. I dont see anybody on the Freo list that they could trade out to gain the required 2nd draft pick.

not gunna happin , cappin

Gil has no say in Tom Lynch's career. If he wants to move clubs he will. If GC Suns want something for him they will trade while he is under contract. The ball is in Lynch's court here... If the Suns hold him to serve his contract. Good luck too them being compensated when he walks. Gil will have to give them priority draft picks.

Lever wont be part of any trade for Hogan.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
