Love Robbie Gray but at 31yo start of next season if you look at the Lewis & Mitchell trades he would be worth peanuts on the trade table.

Pick 51/87 or a trade for Garlett should get it done...

...and yes I'm not serious but I don't think Port are either.

Robbie Grey + pick 10 for Pick 5 would do it, we get Grey for 1 or 2 years, and PA get a shot at a SA gun

Buckle in for a long turbulent ride through the trade period.

Marcus Adams nominating Brisbane complicates matters for us because it will impact the Neale trade and make Collingwood more keen on May.  The Hogan and Neale deals are linked, however much we might want them to be separate.

The KK deal will probably be linked to the May deal too.

Lobb apparently nominating Freo only complicates things further.

Gaff not going to Norf probably means they are less desperate to move Preuss on for salary cap relief.

I expect we'll be stalemated on the Hogan, May, KK and Preuss deals until other clubs resolve their deals.  The only things we might hear progress on are the ones we don't want to hear like VDB and Kent.

Strap in for plenty of poster pre-trade hysteria.

I can do Bells job for him right now... 

Trade 1: 

Neale to Brisbane for pick 5. 

Trade 2: 

Pick 5 & 2019 first to  Melbourne for Hogan & 2019 second

Trade 3: 

Pick 6 to GWS for Rory Lobb and a second

Trade 4: 

Pick 5 to GCS for MAY & KK 

 

I think Losing Neale would mean that Freo will be finishing around the same mark again next year even with Lobb & Hogan. 

But for years to come once their young mid guns mature with that forward line they will be very good.

Lobb isn't going to get a top 10 draft pick.

Sounds nice but won't happen.

Freo have already said a single 1st rounder is not enough for Neale and who can blame them when he has finished 1, 2, 1 in their BnF over the past 3 years.  Then there's no way they will want to trade both top 10 picks this year - they will want to retain one for sure and that means doing some later pick deal for Lobb - and they only have 6 and 79 right now.

Lobb & a second which would value him 12+ which I would say is about right.

Forget the points.  They can't be used to value every trade.

Geelong Cats have traded Lincoln McCarthy, Rd 3 (54), Rd 4 (57) to the Brisbane Lions for Rd 3 (42), Rd 4 (60

Getting in deeper.  Brisbane's pick hand weakened further with this trade and they now have 5, 23, 54, 57 for Neale and Adams.  Brisbane's future picks will have to be on the table - they'll be banking on improving next year too which is very reasonable.

Oh you know, might be a quirking idea to keep someone we’ve put a lot of time into developing as a one on one defender as a rookie and like, hmmm avoid MORE list turnover. Just a thought though, don’t let it get in the way of the spring clean out attitude.

Well they do know best at the end of the day. Personally thought there might have been enough for a rookie spot but that's an armchair opinion. 

Dion’s club mentor, one Neville Jetta was delisted and re rookied....and what a disaster that turned out to be.

Is there a way we can package up pick 62 and 65 to one of the clubs looking to accrue points? I could probably work it myself, but the hard bit is knowing which clubs want the points and what they’ve already got.

Looking at the chart, I think if we package them up with one more lower pick (pick 50), we should be able to get in to the top 30, which would be a decent result. I don’t know if there are any buyers out there though. In: Preuss, top 30 pick. Out: Kent, Tyson, pick 50.

Off the top of my head - Sydney, Pies and (I think North) have a father son.  I think Brisbane have an Affiliated Academy player.  North have an NGA player.  All those are points based.   But I think Syd and Brisb have already traded themselves into a position to draft those players. 

So North and Pies the most likely candidates for a pick upgrade package.

Also, we might take Toby Bedford as our NGA so we might keep points to draft him rather than use a 'real' pick for him. 

 

As an aside, we might be keeping our really, really late (80 +) picks to draft our rookies T Smith, Keilty, depending on how the trade period works our/how many players we want on our senior list.

North have a father son (30+) and an academy (5-15). But if they were going to give us the better pick they probably would've done it by now.

Collingwood have an academy (10-30), a father son (20-40) and even another later academy. Could be an option but they might not have many list spaces.

This draft is very shallow, teams won't want to give up good picks for trash unless it's a huge point win.

I think our best option is to wait until draft night and do some live trades. Use picks in the 60's to move up a few marginal spots with the better 3 picks we already have to get 3 players we want.

Then fill the list with extra rookie spots or delisted players. Guys like McKenna, Flippers, Max King and DJ never really gave us anything. We aren't losing ground if we replace them with similar gambles. Sure it would be nice to replace them with quality but give me the best 40 players we can find and worry about the last 4 spots.

Those 2 picks are worth 213 points or around pick pick 55, so maybe we could get a lower 50s pick but it won't be anything brilliant. These type of deals are the back end (steak knives) to other player trades, or will be the ones that get worked out after the player trade period finishes on Wednesday - there's an extra 2 days for picks to be traded.

Pick trading can continue after the Trade period deadline and also at the Draft so there's no rush.

The AFL scrapped having to use picks for rookie upgrade @Lucifer's Hero - anyway it doesn't really matter because they are the last picks so it's academic - could be pick 128 and 144.

Are you sure the need for picks to draft rookies to the seniors list has been scrapped?

The last I recall is an existing rookie can play in the seniors without waiting for a LTI to be 'upgraded' during the season but they aren't a listed player as such (ie very different contract) unless drafted as such.  Hence the use of pick 80 + and agree they could be pick 128 or 144 etc. to draft them.

Would be happy to learn more.  Cheers.

12th October wrap up.

8 delisted/retired. 36 spots 

Vandenburg resigns 😀

2 traded out. Kent and Tyson. 

1 traded in. Preuss. 

Likely trade in Kade Kolodjashnij.

?? Hogan hopefully he stays and tears it apart in 2019.  Likely retain  

xx Steven May. Not considered given Hogan to stay  

Keilty upgrade to senior list  

Back to 36 spots.  Need more pace and run. Another ball winning Midfielder for depth.  Need backup small defender as backup for Jetta.  

Probably:  

+1 delisted free agent

+5 draftees. # 36  46  54 62  65

+2 rookies.  # 15, 33

can't see us picking up a delisted free agent or 5 draftees. It will be a slightly more empty list than previously but thats not a bad thing because instead of paying 40 blokes a more spread out amount we have 35 blokes who are paid a little bit more and perform a lot more than the other 5 spots would.

Bedford wont be drafted with a pick therefore most likely picks 62&65 will be towards him when a bid comes so only drafting 4 players is a pretty decent crack in a strong draft and with KK on the way too and maybe, a very big maybe on Ben Long from StK.

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle
