Who do we realistically target for a trade?

Yep. Best suggestion yet. Whitfield fills our biggest need. I don't think Shiel will leave them either, so they will remain in cap trouble. We don't have the picks though. The only plausible scenario is if Hogan is on the table. That would seem unlikely. Hogan seems settled  in at MFC according to the media.

Just you think it's safe to come out, along comes a thread on Gary Rohan.

They are either joking or have no idea.

Port will listen to offers for Wingard becuase they believe he will leave as free agent in search of a new challenge.

Ring em up and remind them we gave em Toumpas, Watts and Trengove so it's only fair we get Wingard in return. [censored] it throw in a second rounder that they can use on finding some more top talent from other clubs.

Go hard for Whitfield now. Another failed year for them. We're hopefully on the up and challenging for the next few years now. We play our home games at the MCG and have the only list that rivals GWS', and Whitfield is exactly the sort of player we lack. When Lewis goes at the end of 2019, Whitfield will be a great replacement off half back. We could play Whitfield on a wing or off half back, releasing Salem and/or Fritsch. I think Lever will allow Fritsch to play further up the ground anyway, but Whitfield's ball use and transition running would be the perfect addition to our cake.

He's contracted and we have bugger all draft picks, nor player's of worth that we would consider trading.

FA is our best bet for the next few years, imo.

Think we'd be in serious cap trouble too if we got him! He's a 800-900k minimum player. Every club in the league would want Whitfield. Absolute gun.

Yes, and the club has indicated it has cap space for a big fish

Based on our offer to GAFF I’d say we can make a fair offer to Whitfield without too much issue. The challenge would be how do we get him I a trade??

If we put in a half decent performance on Saturday, then we will have players banging down the door to play at Melbourne. We won't have to sound them out, they will sound us out.

Probably, but performing in Perth will have top players recognising that we are  a genuine Top 4 side and flag certainty in years to come.

I like what they are doing up there. Pick up Neale and Wallis and they would worry a lot of teams next year. Their midfield will go from average to strong.

Who knows really. I've heard rumours about Tyson, Weid, Bugg and Kent all potentially looking at other options.

For me i'd look at trying our best to get 2nd and 3rd rounders for Garlett, Kent and Tyson if they want to go and trade the picks up. If the Weid rumours are true then that's your first round pick right there.

Agan i think it would be tough cap space wise because he is already on 800k and every victorian club will be in for him

Problem is that we would only get a third rounder for Kent. He would be worth so much more if he could stay fit. Do we bite the bullet and take the third? I would rather keep him.

I agree.  Why are the Cats chasing him? Bizarre in my opinion.

This is another weird one. Why top up with players and then trade out one of your more promising players? Surely you would try for another shot at the flag. Completely goes against what they did last year.

Chad Wingard is on his way to Victoria if the rumours are correct.

Can play, would be a very handy acquisition.

Looking for outside class, this guy has it in spades.

...and the bonus for him is he won't have to play against Viney if he picks us.

Wants a long contract on $1m a year.

Won't defend, chase or tackle. No thanks.

Why would any club keep scully over Kelly? Scully is gone. I hear he has an ongoing, high inflamed  wallet injury and would be a liability to any club that picks him though.

Kelly was pushing for an exit and only signed a bumper deal instead of the proposed long term deal. He wants to come home to Melbourne, Scully on the other hand is more being pushed out so GWS can keep their other stars just like Shiel was.

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th
