A minute to go until half time and langdon is already up to 21 disposals and has kicked 2.0

Do whatever it takes to get him to the Dees!

Only 4 more disp for the match, Dazzle. Must be cooling his jets getting ready for landing at the Dees!

Didn’t want to pump his trade value up too much. Good lad.

In all seriousness, I’m not sure what it will take to get this deal done. Peter Bell just seems like a real curveball.

Langdon is our number 1 target. 

Ironic as we could have selected Langdon ahead of Oscar McDonald.  !?!?!?

Some talk Brandon Matera may also look elsewhere, showed this year he was a dangerous small forward. i wonder if we could get him as well?

We need to look at anyone who can tackle and kick a goal.

Butler, Papley, Sam gray, Shai Bolton, Jarrod Cameron, Jack Petruccele.

In m mind we need two of these guys for next season.

Our second rounder, be prepared to walk away if they want more. There's always that Cutler bloke who would cost a lot less.

Its the simplest of trades that really should get done very quickly. He is not worth a 1strounder and is better than a late second rounder. our 2nd pick is going to be around 21ish.. if it gets complicated then it son Freo and its on us. we say pick 21. take it or leave it.

I am a big fan of Cutler, we could get him for a 3rd rounder.

Yeah he is on the Lions list, has suffered from injuries this year and then the Lions going bang he has struggled to get back into side.

Several even.

Maybe because he didn’t want to leave last year? 

FFS. Ridiculous post. Par for the course, but ridiculous nonetheless. 

Right. So he didn't want to leave at the end of 2018 to join a team that was widely viewed as being a premiership contender, but now that we're a basket case he's happy to come across. Some people will believe anything.🙄

How do you know we aren't?  How do we know we have enquired and been told he's not interested?  

You might be right, but in truth, we know nothing.

He didn’t want to leave Fremantle last year, whether to go to Melbourne or any other club. 

You’re currently upset that we didn’t trade for him last year when there is no evidence he had any interest in moving, so you’ve just made something up in your head. 

There is some supreme hypocrisy/irony in the bolded line.

I wanted Papley as well, but he's likely going to Carlton.  Let's see what they pay for him and that might explain why we aren't chasing him.

It all comes down to $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ in most cases. Papley is a very good player, but not worth $750k if that is what North or Carlton might be prepared to offer. I have no info on what the offer might be.

Not sure which is worse us not asking about Papley or being told 'no thanks'.

True.  Who knows what is happening behind closed doors, but after this season, I'd like to think we are leaving no stone unturned in improving our list.  No doubt some players might knock us back, but I think that would be similar to any year no matter where we are on the ladder.  We can't win them all.

As Clint mentioned above, it may be a money issue - Jack Martin may be demanding money we can't afford or are unwilling to pay.  If we are into Ed Langdon then a large chunk of what we have to pay and therefore we are looking at the opportunity to offload others, or we are going to attempt to fill some gaps through the draft.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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
