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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football
