We haven't used a 1st round pick for 3 drafts now (2016 Hannan in 3rd, round, 2017 Spargo in 2nd round, 2018 Sparrow in 2nd round) which means we are not in a position to trade out our 1st round pick in 2019 for Langdon (we we're able to go 3 drafts in a row because we took 2x 1st in 2015 which were Clarry and Weed. 

Collingwood can give up a first round pick, so they are in the box seat at the trade table.

He would be a great fit for us, but the Collingwood FC will find a way to get this deal done.

Unless we get permission from the AFL, which other clubs have done in the recent past.

All AFL rules are subjective and flexible

Knowing them though Moon, we’ll be the first one’s they say no to.

It's interesting that last years Trade and Draft period,  when we were after  sMay...  So were the Pies, big time. 

..... Then,  the Pies mysteriously vanished from the  sMay  negotiations.

I don't think he is actually any good. I have watched him closely since mid last year when rumours started about him coming to Melbourne. His skills are not flash. Decision making isnt either. What do others see that i dont?

Won’t be a first - mid second maybe early depending on his year. Zac Jones is expecting an early to mid second and you’d think Langdon would be slightly behind.

Seconded.

He is fast but lacks in ball use, class and doesn't hit the scoreboard enough as a small forward.

Don’t forget, they have the trading genius in Bell. Will demand at least 3 first rounders for him, just wait

He's not a small forward though. He is a winger that plays high half-forward and occasionally half-back.

Doesn't get the juices flowing for me.  Strikes me as a bloke with a little more pace than our current midfield but slightly worse skills.  I'm not sure it is what we need.

I watched him play as a small forward last year. 

Don't know about this year. Perhaps part of the positional changes are due to the fact that he is yet to do well in any of them.

We should target both Z Jones and Langdon to play on either wing

Then Fritsch can play forward or back and we have a replacement for Lewis

I know it doesn't prove anything but you can see his possession numbers and rebound 50s are higher than you'd ever expect from a small forward. I was watching him closely all season and he was up the ground as much as any of their mids.

he's not a small forward; he's a wingman / rebounding flanker

handy player who breaks lines and tackles well, but has a tendency to spray it of the boot

given that we gave up second rounders for melksham and hibberd, i'd put him BELOW their value, so maybe something like straight third rounder OR our second for langdon and freo's third / fourth rounder could work?

17 disposals to half time, at 94% DE. Very handy.

Edit: 27 at 88% early in the last

He played on a wing last year too.

Yes. 32 disposals at 90% efficiency.  

Why are people questioning his disposal quality???? 

He is a fast skilled wingman who runs hard and tackles hard.  

Definitely do a trade as 

Landgon and Freo 2020 3rd Round

for MFC 2020 1st round pick.

Hogan and our 2018 2nd rounder (or 2019 2nd rounder) for 6 and EL would have been a good outcome.

In: May, KK and Langdon 

Out: Hogan and 2nd rounder

Oh well, sai la vie!

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    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 by George on the Outer

    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. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    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. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    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. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
