Jesse going nowhere, boys and girls.

MFC has demanded at least pick 2 and Freos first rounder next year for Jesse. This is why Freo offered Weller and 5, for The Suns' pick 2. This will then be sent to us for Hogan along with their 2018

The club has someone else in their sights big time. Not Lever, that deal is done. I'll let you know if I can find out more

Adelaide would vomit at that. Francis can't even crack a game at the Bombers and seems to have less value than Watts.

Fair enough. Don't know enough about him and was hoping Adelaide would fall all over him being a high draft pick, an SA boy and under contract. I did hear the talent was there just not the application.

Wallace was discussing him on Trade Radio the other day, said he has no tank and the Bombers are worried he doesn't have the mindset to ever work hard enough to have one. Was a #6 pick from memory, that pick is cursed. Richmond did well to trade it for Prestia last year.

Sam Collins from fremantle has been delisted. I'd be keen on him.

he used to help coach some sessions for me at club football 2 years ago. Box Hill Hawks player but whenever I wore my Melbourne jumper to training he said that he loves the dees. Probably means nothing but for whatever it's worth he'd be a good tall backup backman in a defence line that's really shaping up nicely

A few people asking me what mail is about.Honestly not much this year.

Hearing the Watts loot will inform next move. They'd like Gaff and question has been asked. Unlikely at this point but shopping assets like Watts gives us a chips at the table. 

Balic more likely than not. 

Balic yes.

Watts has options galore. Devastated but going.

Any hope that targets will be made available next week?

Lots of talk over in the west that dockers will make a play for hogan. Eagles may look at him but unlikely.

If eagles: darling and a 1st rounder

If dockers: 1st rounder and player but god knows who. 

Have a feeling it may tear its head again. I love JH but like darling at eagles, wonder with what has happened where he wants to be in 3-5 years?

Is Gibson worth a look from NM. Age is other side but healthy and could be rookie listed?

I've been hearing that also, I first mentioned it a month ago. Nixon reckons its a done deal but club denies it and Hogan said no not long ago. Maybe something has changed or they are keeping it quiet? Would not surprise me after the year he has had, but I hope he doesn't go.

I don't see it happening, BUT, WHAT IF, the Dockers offered pick 5 this year, their first pick next year, a player and Balic thrown in and we knew that with pick 5 we could get a particular big Victorian forward in the draft who could replace Jesse.

What would we do then, if that was the offer ?

2 first rounders would be the starting point.

Balic is basically a freebie anyway.

So it would come down to the player involved. No point adding on a depth or bottom 6 player, but if it was Lachie Neale or equivalent then you would have to start considering. Problem is that there is no way Freo would give up that much.

Probably not, but he is contracted and if they really want him as desperately as is being mooted, then who knows.

Matt Taberner and Harley Balic to the Dees for Dean Kent and Pick 45. Freo want more... so may involve a shuffling of picks depending on the Jack Watts situation. Kent is also not keen on leaving Melbourne and acknowledges he had an inconsistent year due to ongoing back and hamstring strains.

I must say Taberner is an ideal replacement for Watts at 199cm and runs all day like a young Nick Riewoldt and could potentially play second ruck. Hopefully we can land both at little cost.

Only happy to trade hogan if it turns into Tom Lynch... freo 2 first rounders plus our 1st rounder next year for lynch fair?

I personally hope he stays at the Suns. They will disband if he leaves. The AFL will stop it.

Is that a guess re Taberner, or have you heard something?

I'd do it if JH wanted to go home for family reasons, but we would need a ready to go forward to replace him, either in the trade or with pick 5, but I don't think there is too many available off the top of my head? Unless you can think of any, maybe Darling? Hope he stays though.

Strong rumours, but Dees keeping a lid on it.

I'd be surprised if we are into Taberner. Goodwin has already pointed out that he sees Hogan and T.Mac as our key forwards, plus we have Pedo and Weid in the wings.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
