WELCOME TO DEMONLAND - ED LANGDON

Recommended Posts

Langdon will probably finish top 5 in Freo's BnF behind Fyfe, Walters and Hill. Not too snappy for play pick 54

No but I wouldn’t overrate Langdon. Freo supporters can not wait to see the back of him.

Yeah sure, 

I work with and have quite a few mates who go for Freo, all of whom rate Langdon quite highly. I haven’t spoken to one who has said they can’t wait to get rid of him. Odd.

Cool. Now, have we booked him a barber's appointment yet?

I’m not sure Christian Salem will require an appointment.

He’ll get the clippers out during the first weights session - just as Langdon does his first rep of the bench press.

I don’t have a brother who is a member,but was going off the comments of Freo supporters on social media and other forums, just seems like he [censored] it up a bit. Happy to give him a go on the basis we aren’t paying overs.

With Cognilio off the market, Langdon becomes one of the better players known to be on the market this off season.

Who, according to the Sun, has chosen us as his club of choice. No it doesn't make it a fait accompli, but it goes bloody close to it.

Pick 20 will get it done. Clean and simple.

I live in WA mate, they are fickle lot over here and turn very quickly on players who decide they are moving.

Eagles supporters turned very quickly on Judd, when he said he was going home. They fail to acknowledge he looked after them when he could have walked through the PSD, which Carlton wanted him to do

I agree with you about not paying overs, pick 21 is about right

This will not be clean, its Freo were talking about here. The Lawyer will want his moment in the sun come November.

He may well do and I expect it to drag on but pick 21 is fair Suns are in salary cap strain having been forced to pay overs to keep young talent so pick 2 in PSD is always there if Bell wishes to posture

We should do to Freo what they did to us last year with Hogan and downgrade our pick 20 and force them to take a later pick for Langdon.

Let’s trade pick 20 and 38 to Essendon for pick 29 and 31. Then force them to take 29.

jeez, you are a punitive bloke aren't you.

I can't help but see this deal as inextricably linked to Hogan's last year. Bell, in a new position came in and did his theatrics for the media, but remember it is a closed market, clubs deal with clubs year in year out, hence good relationships need to be maintained and would be maintained behind closed doors - sometimes you give a little (or what appears to be a lot) and then you get something back in another year.

The problem is that he seems to negotiate, not like a modern lawyer, but like a suburban litigation solicitor from the 1970s who seems to think it’s really clever to not concede a thing and play a game of tedious WW1 style brinkmanship, with the result that no one gets a good deal including, critically, Freo.

Fingers crossed, common sense, commercial acumen, and just general decency prevails here. Surely our first second rounder is eminently fair - get it done early, which allows each club to focus on other potential deals.

I love the idea, but in true Melbourne fashion, I could see Gold Coast taking him instead and we miss out entirely.

Then we should offer up the Wagner brothers to GC for pick 100 in good faith that GC won't take Langdon in the PSD (if that draft actually exists anymore)

I feel as though we've dealt with Gold Coast well over the years, so I see no reason why if the PSD came up that we couldn't come to some sort of agreement with them.

This is not just about Langdon, but can any contract be signed and any trade be formally announced prior to the official trade period, even if the clubs and players involved agree?

    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

    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
