It will be interesting too see where Angus Brayshaw is with his contract status with the Dees.

I have heard he is linked to the Dockers. Interesting we are into Langdon... 

Angus will re-sign with us. It was suggested by some journo that he may look at a move to Perth as he was apparently on the outer at Melbourne after not being selected in the seniors at the start of the season. Also his brother is here. I love how journo’s join the dots.

Interesting and can confirm we were up to our eyeballs in this kid. Taylor called him on the night to apologise he wasn’t going to be a Dee because Oscar dropped to us. We had ANB and Oscar much higher on our draft board than where we drafted them and Ed was pretty sure he was going to be a Dee with pick 53. Don’t know if he’s keen to come back but apparently he ‘understood’ our decision. Hope that insight helps. 

So what you mean is we rated O mac and ANB as better players?

So you are going to pay out the last year of Lewis' contract?

Bernie Vince hasn't missed a game

Nobody has heard of him before because 4 yrs down the track he is now playing consistent footy

A popular bloke on a fan forum is no recommendation 

Lewis contract can be moved to a non playing role next season.  Vince will retire at seasons end.

Langdon is a popular player among Freo fans as he is a rising gun.  I dont need Freo supporters to tell me that, I can see it with my own eyes.

Anyone can see that if there was an option to poach a rising young gun then the first looked at would be our veterans, especially if their contract can be shifted from the cap. We have enough leadership to cope now. Players can't stay on our list forever, despite the thoughts of fanboys 

Great intel by Dee-licious too. Much appreciated

If QB loss showed us anything, its that we should prioritise a player like this, quick with skills from HB.. has to be targeted.

And for gods sake, never have Vince & Lewis in the same team again.

Correct. I don’t know where they were on our board but know that we were pleasantly suprised they fell that low. And both I feel have now shown they were worth more than their pick. Langdon starting to do the same.

Good, if we're after him would like to screw them over in any deal given what they did to us with Hogan.

I thought we did well for a midfielder/defender.

Be tough to do that, since Cottinwool are into him,  and his brother is playing there.

 

... unless we already made some arrangement with Ed Langdon  &  Hi-Ho,  last year, during the Hogan deals.

 

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.  

 

Freo played hard ball on the  Lachie Neale  deal with the Lions.   Then all of a sudden late in proceedings,  Dayne Beams  had a 180* U turn,  about staying with the Lions...  he came out and stated he wanted to go to back to the Pies,  which did happen... and that facilitated the  Lachie Neale  to Lions deal,  Via pick trades...  which in turn brought the Hogan negotiations back to life...  and as we all now know...  the  Hogan  deal then proceeded.

 

Have we struck some kind of arrangement with Freo, back last trade period,  for  E Langdon  ???...   or even the Pies themselves ?  (elliot) ?

Yes ... Langdon is exactly what we need.  A 5-year deal would be a good offer.

But we will have to give up a good player to get him. Maybe have to offer up a Neal-Bullen or Hannan plus some swap of later picks.    

Still think our odds are unlikely.

Freo imo need to rebuild. We need to ourselves bring in young talent in this years draft, so no 1st round trade this year, but i'd entertain next years first round & this years second round pick for him.

Sure, but I'm more interested in us getting a FA this year so we can get away from giving up 1st round picks.

Coniglio anyone?

Deal with Collingwood at your peril.

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.

    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
