Might be handy on the bench.

Bit of an understatement? Was one of Hawthorns most instrumental outside running link up mids in their 3peat, arguably as damaging and momentum shifting as Rioli was.  Won b&f in his first year at Freo,traded for a pick 23. A player of proven high quality, same age bracket as Gaff. An ideal replacement if Gaff choses North

He's wortha second round pick or higher. Would trade Freo Garlett and a 2019 first round pick for their 2018 2nd and Hill. We're talking 14-18 for 22-24 i believe.

Is Bradley a relation by any chance?  :)

Certainly worth a few phone calls

I wonder if any others want out at the Shockers?

Trouble at Mill?

Worth a call but no need to trade next years first round and Garlett. I don’t care that we’d receive a second round pick back. 

Freo could be interested in Kent but I’d much rather keep him. Maybe a second round pick by itself could get it done.

Fair enough. I just wouldn't think they'd accept a second round pick or a collection of fringe players. I thought perhaps another goal sneak named Jeff might tempt them again

Dare I say it, but those in the trade Hogan camp (not I) could be emboldened by the temptation of Hill & a first round pick for Hogan.

Now that we’re a destination club, we don’t need to give up anyone or anything of value to lure required players from less competitive clubs.

How do I know this?

I’ve obsrved it for years. For 12 years to be exact.

 

It's a passive approach though and risks not addressing an immediate hole. I hope you're right though.

Why wouldn’t he just go back to Hawthorn? Or just ask for a trade to West Coast if he hates being at the Dockers so much, seeing as it was a “go home” trade only a year ago. 

I’m with Ross - seems a rumour pretty unlikely to be true.

just as a sidebar...im not really inclined to believe anything from Ross :)  He's probably shocked his side are shizen too ( we're not though )

If Lever was worth 2 first rounders. An injury prone Hill and a first rounder would be massive unders IMO

Brad Hill for ??? We can’t really offer anything. Perhaps

Hill and Ffc pick 55 for

Kent & MFC pick 30 

but I’m stretching here. I actually think Kent will show his ability over the next 3-6 weeks. 

Kent has an opportunity over the next (hopefully) 5 weeks to cement his place; alternatively to cement his boots.

Over to you, Dean.

I think we can’t trade our future first round pick because we’ve done it twice since future pick trading started.

Doubt we could trade Garlett interstate. No way Garlett leaves his son behind. I reckon he’d retire before that. But who knows!

Good footballer, but doubt he'd leave WA. He moved home to be with family and to play with his brother. He also left a successful team to move home and play for a sh*t team. He would be mental to ditch his family not long after!

Reminder to all on here again that we have no first round pick this year and are not allowed to trade next years first round pick. I'm sick of seeing trade suggestions with first round picks mentioned. Unless we trade Petracca, Oliver, Brayshaw or Hogan, then forget about it!

Hell no soft as butter. Could only get a kick at a beast of a team like Hawthorn shown up at Freo. We will get Gaff don't need anyone else.

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the
