Langdon would certainly compliment our side. But the player we need is Brad Hill. If the club thinks this list can get a flag then Hill is our man. Quick with elite skills. Also elite endurance. Wouldn’t give up pick 3 for Hill alone but we need to chase him. 

Im not convinced Collingwood will get Langdon. They apparently have their own cap issues. If we go for Langdon I wouldn’t be trading him for Brayshaw. At best it’s be an even deal. At worst he plays at 2018 levels at freo and we lose out big time.

I'll be interested to see how we negotiate with Freo as well after the rubbish from last year.  I can't see them attempting to do us any favours, although finishing on the bottom means we possibly hold all the cards in terms of him going into something like the pre-season draft.

Could you tell me the last time a wanted, quality player stiffed his former club and went into the preseason draft to go to a near bottom team?

That wasn't really the point, Moonie. It's more around how they try to stuff us last year with Jesse, but this time we have more power. I'm sure a trade will happen if he wants to come here, but we have more leverage this time.

What is this "more power" or "leverage"? Is it that he is OOC and can 'potentially' come to us in the preseason draft? If so, then it is on point. 

But I'll move on

Very ordinary player tonight. The knock on his disposal is correct. On tonight’s performance, a Pick around 30 is about right. 

On tonight’s game Zak Jones is a better player, he’d be worth about a Pick 25.

Langdon wouldn’t get a game at the Pies. Phillips & Sidebottom are both much better Wingers.

To be honest I think Freo will play hardball but he won’t attract anything more than our second rounder.

For Mahoney it won’t be. That’s one thing you can bet on.

We can’t trade our first round pick this year. The only option is if we trade pick 3 for 2 picks, one within the first round, then on trade the other pick. 

We must use a first round selection this year, unless the rules have changed?

If we pay more than a 2nd rounder then it’s daylight robbery. His kicking is very ordinary.

As much as I dislike said player, this makes a lot of sense.

2nd round picks will range from #19 to #36 (excluding academy etc players)  A very wide range!   

Our 2nd round pick will be around ~20-22.  Hope people aren't saying we use that as 'the second rounder' for Langdon!!  

Would much rather use it for someone who is a proven goal kicker of any shape or size.

is Baker our langdon already in the system?

Maybe and I am getting excited about Jordon, who is continuing to develop very well. Also Sparrow to come back and Nietsche ( sorry about spelling,) who was spoken about by players in pre season as being very talented.

IMO unless we are targeting a champion, we should try and find a FA or two and use our draft picks for top end talent.

Can’t recall any FA’s we have picked up.I think you have more chance with a disgruntled player possibly not getting a run, than one merely going for money.

I personally don't like Langdon as a player and i wouldn't be giving up anything significant for him. he runs all day sure, but he's not a very good kick at all, makes average decisions and while he'd probably fit in, i don't see him being a regular in the best 22 or contributing in any meaningful way to improving this side to the point it can challenge for a flag. 

Brad Hill on the other hand... Speed, class, skills

Probably said this 3 or 4x's already, but this guy is not going to help us improve to the levels we're all hoping for in the future. 

Besides his tank & a bit of pace, i don't see anything else to suggest he's a talented footballer. I really hope we look elsewhere.

    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

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
