Trade rumours

Freo are planting the Hogan story, and they will continue to plant it every year. They know he is a gun, and they know how badly they need him.

It's smart of them to do it. Some players get awfully upset at even the possibility of a trade - just ask Jordan Lewis. The only thing we have to worry about is whether Hogan is enticed to go, or whether the club is being vocal with him about how valuable he is to us.

Lever wont be part of any trade for Hogan.

Not for one minute do I believe that Hogan will request a trade, but it is fanciful to think that it would involve 4 clubs. We'll deal with the Crows on Lever as a separate trade. What we get for Watts may be part of it, but there is no way in hell should the Gibbs to Adelaide deal be part of it.

That would be one of the worst deals of all time - trade a seasoned AFL footballer who has his flaws but arguably one of our most skilled players to the filth for an upgrade of 4 picks in the Lucky Dip they call the National draft. Then we flip that plus something to Adelaide for a bloke who just polled the same votes in the Brownlow as Oscar Mac and as far as I'm concerned is not a KPD - Wow I just give up 

I agree, cant believe some of the trades I have read on this forum.

The idea of Hogan going is in the main preposterous. Its so far fetched its silly.

The sheer magnitude of its ridiculousness makes it ideally suited to circus week.

Crazy things happen. This qualifies.

Am hoping it doesn't. I'll feel better at 2.01 on the 19th of next month.

Trade Hogan!!!!!!!!!!!!

This can longer be called "the silly season", it is the [censored] in the head season!!

I totally agree BBO. I also just tuned into the thread. Trade Hogan?.......shirley your joking!!......for what?!   Hes one of the best forwards going around......he took forever to sign, but then he did. So then what is the actual friggin point of these contracts then??

Id be staggered if he left. (we even let him smoke)>.

The Club can't afford to trade Hogan. The supporter fallout would be catastrophic and detrimental to our membership numbers. The rumour is mischievous 

Yep, no need to worry about how we'd fair the year after, the place won't be standing once the members get through with it

I'll say something that may seem unkind but read it in context.

If Hogan were to seek a trade home this year, after signing a new contract and then  having the year from hell, in which the MFC have supported him 100%, I would regard him as an ungrateful person who I would then care little about.

HOWEVER, that is not the case and he is going nowhere. He apparently loves the club and his team mates and he continues to have my full support in both his recovery and his football career, with the Dees.

Bit disappointed that we seemingly don't have any interest in Devon Smith. Good pace, dangerous forward, wants more midfield time and could be used as that "outside" player I would have thought.

Has apparently already invested in some nice  Bellarine real estate...a certain new [censored] I have been told, we won't get a look ? in....

If it's true it does sound a little like mark neeld. There are literally petitions being sent to the club to keep jack. Especially considering we're unlikely to get much for him

We would get a lot for him if it was his initiative.

Other clubs know that he's being pushed out so they know that they don't have to ask much.

I really think we'd accept Watts for a 4-pick drop from 10 to 6 if it would help us land Lever more easily. Massive unders, but it might gets us what we want. We're in a lousy position to demand much for Watts (who is not damaged goods like Stringer), and this may well be as good as we are likely to get.

Should Roos really be saying anything? He chose goody as coach so should be backing in his decision not a good look 

He should Pizz off back to the media 

It is not his place to comment

Just very very disappointing

    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
