After he was told how good Oliver was. He  did all that was expected of him but you can be made to look a little foolish if your talent identification people are no good.

Yeah like I said in the first place

hes a good 'gets the job done' bloke. we see people squabbling here about payed too much or didnt ask enough constantly on here and elsewhere. I say [censored] that. he gets the blokes into the club and gets our blokes to their destination of choice - unless we are dealing with [censored] (see current Freo regime...) a couple of numbers next the picks are largely irrelevant. get the right ballpark and let's make it happen. no fart arseing around not being happy with pick 7 when we after 5.

I like the methodology and importantly with that so do most people - hence we now have good trading terms with most clubs and aren't seen as d8ckheads who want the earth for their current players but are only wanting to pay for passion pop while ordering French champagne for others!

I think he's a better administrator than a coach. 

I like the way he conducts himself.  While I still think we gave too much for lever, in general he (and the rest of the recruiting folks) has followed the model of several top clubs in not dicking around and just getting the deals done.  This wins us a lot of respect from other clubs and makes them more willing to work with us. 

Overall, I think he's doing pretty well, but of course we won't know the whole story for years yet.

I've been a critic of some of the trades. In the past I think he's been a bit too keen to be liked by the media and to get deals done early often with the justification of having time to do other deals - when at least from the outside there hasn't been other deals for us to do. But my concern hasn't been the direction of the deals simply the value of the little wins along the way.

....

My trading concerns are mainly based around the idea that we had leverage in certain deals where we had players signed on and the opposition had incentive to deal with us. The Lever deal, the Salem/Tyson deal, the Melksham deal even the Frost deal. All moments where I think we gave up a lot and probably could've just got a little bit here or there back.

...

Maybe at the end of the day it doesn't matter and certainly the good of bringing in the right players to improve the team outweighs my concerns. 

...

I am boghled by your first comment.  Do you really think that Josh has bent over in trades to try and get the media to like him?

That's crazy.  He got trades done because he knew what he wanted,  knew how he valued it and didn't argue over steak knives for the sake of it. 

All the trades you mentioned were obviously targeted players. Theft might not have worked out based on the players performance (sadly even though Tyson gave us agreat 3 years when we needed it, he has now been pushed out. And given it was Billings vs Salem/Tyson I'd say we won it anyway).  We might not have "won" them by paying unders but we paid a pretty reasonable price, and got it done. 

Negotiatiors who get win win are good negotiatiors. You get your target, all parties are happy, and you'll do business again. Idon't understand why so meant people rate negotiators based on being able to rip off the opposition.

I think Taylor makes him look pretty good. Of the big-time off field footy department guys, I have Taylor miles ahead. Mahoney's ok though. No howlers yet, but no massive wins either.

He’s been a super important component in the re-branding of this club.

We appear to be a professional, disciplined and respectable organisation now.

Freo on the other hand ...

If trading up to enable Taylor to select Oliver and Weed isn't a massive win then we've got a lot to look forward to.

Of course it's not a massive win. We traded plenty away to move up. With our subsequent results the season after that trade the ending value of the pics was about even. The recruitment of Oliver wasn't on Mahoney.

Previous few off-seasons have been good. Trading up and landing guys like Hibberd, Melksham and Lever is perfect recruiting. This off-season he's talked the talk so far, but we're yet to see any real results. Resigning Vanders was a success. Tyson for Pruess was a neutral trade with no real winners or losers foreseeable yet. It will all come down to the Hogan/May/Kola deals as to whether we can rate this period a success like the past few.

Mahoney, Taylor and no doubt Viney collaborated to engineer a major recruiting coup.

Failed coach who was only moved into admin so they didn’t have to pay out his contract. 

Received a lot of credit in the media for others work (a little like a senior coach) but is only 50/50.

 

The GM football manager in an AFL clubs having a huge difference in responsibilities and reports. I don’t think Mahoney has huge responsibilities in term of the AFL landscape. 

 

He in the seat when we have had a successful rebuild but wouldn’t give him huge responsibility for it. 

Roos and Viney did a lot of the work especially in Roos third year when Goodwin was the coach without the media pressure.

Sorry I know it wasn’t directed at me but I couldn’t remember the trading they did in 2015 draft to get Oliver so l looked it up. 

Melbourne gave up

Pick 6

Pick 29 and

Our 2016 first round pick which ended up being pick 9

Gold Coast gave us

Pick 3 (that ended up being 4)

Pick 10 and 

Pick 43

So that all looks pretty fair pick wise to both clubs but we ended up with Oliver so it is a monster, monster, monster win to us.

Yeah I know that, I was more interested in Dappa Dan's response seeing he said we traded away plenty to trade up.

Again... What are you talking about? You've come to an MFC forum and you're sceptical about the knowledge of other posters?

We had pick 10, and flipped it (with some overs) for Bugg and a slightly earlier first... then traded that first and our following season's first (end result = 2015 - 8 and 2016 - 9) for the chance to pick at what ended up being 4 and 9 in 2015... 8+9 vs 4+9.... There's not a huge disparity there... There was some shuffling of later picks as well of course, as there usually is, but the white meat of that deal was the above pick inside the top 10.

The recruiters went for Oliver very late in the piece. It wasn't some incredible long-planned pick up "Darling" style.

I wanna see Mahoney pull a Howie Roseman before I get super excited. We're lucky we have Taylor who picks up gems late in the draft seemingly all the time. We haven't owned a trade week yet. We've done well drafting. Subtle difference.

You're right Mahoney's a dunce, he thought he was trading up so Taylor could take Walter Payton at 4.  Imagine his surprise when that didn't happen!

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place.

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal.

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview.

Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for.

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.
