Seems like Langdon to the Dees isn't as simple as it was few weeks ago if reports are true in him touring Essendon facilities.

Hoping we don't miss out on him.

He tours Essendon and sees magnificent home that they have to themselves...  Two full size ovals and great rehab facilities.

Tours Melbourne and sees Storm players in the Gym and Soccer being played outside... Takes a 10 minute walk to our totally misshapen training oval, while probably dodging the dog faeces on it. MFC sells them its great coaching team of..... um....ummmm............ " Hey Mr Langdon, you can also see the "G" from here matey... LOOK OVER THERE, thats the top of light tower 4".

We have no more hope to sell him than the Bombers, and our so-called home is a bit of a joke compared to theirs.

All comes down to the contract, both in money and length. If we can only offer the same then MFC will miss out IMO.

pepetides don't need more outside run, so much ado about nothing - due diligence to tour the facilities, and most people / experts still expect langdon to get to the dees

if they were to get him it won't help their inability to win the ball at the coalface and they - like us! - have a fairly dysfunctional forward set-up, a host of injury-prone players, and a midfield prone to bombing it to no one in particular

if they get him, so be it

Small update from the HUN:

Would already have a designated locker at Melbourne and his new jumper laid out in the changerooms. The Demons have been into Langdon all year and will resume talks with Fremantle about a deal. Will be interesting negotiations after Peter Bell got cranky with the Dees over Jesse Hogan last year.

Interesting how things are reported. If I was Peter Hill, I’d be more annoyed about the Dees circling a contracted (and important) Freo player all year rather than any trade from last year.

The Hogan / May (pick 5) deal seemed fair for both teams at the time, and this season has proved this.

Langdon and now Tomlinson are two quality players who will be nice inclusions to our list next year. Langdon's disposal is still a little shaky but its on the improve. Tomlinson isn't going to take over games by any means but he will be solid and consistant playing a role we are in need of as a marking target through the middle of the ground who can run and spread.

They have no reason to be annoyed when that's exactly what they did with Hogan, time and time again.

Riiiiight totally not talking about the same club which has been able to land Steven May and Jake Lever in previous seasons. I'm sure great facilities are nice bonus' for players, but if Gold Coast had the best facilities on planet earth im sure as hell not going there, no matter the amount of money.

Quite correct.

As much as I would normally side with @ding, we have successfully landed 2 huge targets the past 2 years. Only injuries have stopped those trades being seen as a huge coup for us.

Lets hope Mahoney continues his good work this year.

No, i wouldnt want to play at Gold Coast, but we arent comparing us v GCS are we...? 

The clear point i was making was the contrast in positions between what we have to sell as far as facilities go, V what the Bombers have. Any comparison is heavily stacked in their favor. 

We landed both Lever and May largely because of the size and length of contracts, which is the other point i was making. We paid dearly for both. They certainly didnt come here out of the kindness of their hearts. If we get Langdon it will most likely be because we offered more than the other suitors did.

No, we paid market rates 

May is actually on less at the Dees than he was at GC17

We gave up pick 6 and handed a 27 year old a 5 year contract on big coin. If that is not paying dearly, i have a nice bridge in Sydney to sell you :) 

Im not saying i  think he was a bad pickup ( i like having him in the team as long as he gets rid of the brain fade/suspensions), but we certainly didnt get a bargain. Lever trade however.................

nothing is set in stone until the paperwork has been signed off on.

Im hoping this gets done pretty easily, but the official sign and trade period hasn't started yet.

    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

    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.

    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
