Sure we could get De Goey, just don’t cry that we have to give up Petracca and Brayshaw to do it

Vox Pop: Who would you give up for Dee Goey?

Petracca + a pick or someone else?

As I said I like Gaff... but with our dwindling resources in the salary cap, this deecision is Crucial, to get it right.   We are very one geared.  We are very much a power geared side,,, and i want us to add an extra dimension to our run and carry.

Pace, breaks big games open.

Hunt was our pace but instead of teaching him to lower his eyes we dropped him and now his season is over right when we need him

Why do you say, 'instead of teaching him'?

Don't you reckon we've been trying to get him to use the ball better since last season ?  The coaches of course, would have been working on that with him.

And so we have worked hard on getting ur half back sorted so we use the ball better coming out of defence.  We have been much better at this, in 2018.

But sadly Hunt has not been able to capture his best form, from the wing.

Our depth has miraculously improved from defence, since we recruited Lever, and others last year.

In a team lacking a bit of dash Id play Hunt and Garlett. Too good for the seconds in my opinion

I disagree on Garlett this year.

Hasn't deserved it.  You have to earn it,,, by doing the things 'the coaches' and 'the team' want/need.  Not watt 'you', want to do only.

 

Watt was quick as well, like a fox, unfortunately.

But not so much a 'team' man. just one of the' buoys'.  floated around waiting.   'watt of the wisp'.

 

We want pace, with 'attitude',,, or 'brute', see Danger.   'will of the wisp', not so much. 

I guess that's why we got Spargo, and Baker, both have 'tude'.  But both not what i'm talking about.

 

'De Goey will be hotter property, and I am thinking he's skills are a better investment, than Gaff's gut run.

Petracca vs De Goey

https://www.footywire.com/afl/footy/ft_player_compare?playerStatus1=A&tid1=12&pid1=4041&fid1=S&playerStatus2=A&tid2=5&pid2=4043&fid2=S&type=A

Tracking similarly. Given out scoring options it is reasonanble to suggest we rely less on Trac kicking goals, and so therefore he is given fewer opportunities to score than De Goey.

Trac wins in CP, rebound 50s, intercepts and metres gained. De Goey in goals, i50s, and score involvements.

This tells us Trac is playing more of a defensive role, De Goey more an attacking role.

Is the effectiveness of a midfielder-swingman determined exclusively on their scoreboard impact? I think Trac is have a very solid year. As is De Goey.

Pick 5 behind Petracca and Brayshaw in 2014, has just hit 50 games. We have no first round pick this year and cannot trade next years, so unless we're wiling to trade one of our own young guns (Trac, Oliver, Hogan, Brayshaw) then we cannot get him or Wines or anyone. On the basis, can't see it happening and prefer our youngsters to him.

 

Youngsters with talent grow up and then hell breaks loose on the field. We have a great list. Culture and hunger are missing but these are bubbling now more than the recent (20 years) past.

Dreaming that you could essentially trade Brayshaw for De Goey.

I don't know the difference in market values,,, only the clubs would.   But I do know that a top 10 pick would go a long way towards that end, as trade in part for De Goey.

Now I know we all like Gus, but unfortunately he is a long term risk.  We are not the complete list, that people have been talking about in recent seasons.

 

And I know one pacy player is not the answer, just as Diamond Jim was not the answer on his lonesome,,, back in the 60's.

We need to include about 3 quickish players into our lineup, IMO.   Stretch might be one?   Hunt at present, isn't.

DShiel would go some way to help.

Degoey would be fantastic.

 

Gaff wouldn't, IMO.

 

Buying in, would mean, we have to make some tough (ruthless) decisions with our list.  We have to enter trade;,,, and yes trade some favourite players.

Someone from the Saints admin thought they should have picked Petracca instead of Mc C, the Dees showed interest in De Goey which would have been a win win for both clubs.

So who are the Kangas going to trade to make this happen

Will not be easy.

Hope CW match the payment and sends them broke

Just don't see how Degoey moves without the Kangas losing picks and players

Pies will not lose De Goey IMO.

Pies will lose players to keep him and he will forego some cash, but IMO will not leave.

He will sign a 2 year deal at less cash, say $800k per year, or a longer term one, if he is happy to forego the future offers that may come.

Pies will try and pension Wells off and other players can be moved on as well. Hearing rumours about Moore going as well, but I think he will only go if they get another key forward. Hello Tom, even though the Tigers appear to be the leaders in his chase.

In the normal run of events I would agree but the Tom Lynch factor comes into this. From all reports their cap is running tight, Pendlebury and Sidebottom would be eating up a bit and they had to shell out the dollars to lure Adams and Treloar to the club. Can they find all that money even at 800k for De Goey and still find the cash for Lynch whom they have been openly chasing?

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,
