He’s 100% on the radar and I can confirm he’s been seen in and around Melbourne. #ETtradebreaker

Facebook says we offered Tyson but it was rejected.

But, you know, Facebook.

If that was the case, then i am glad they rejected it. Tyson is worth more than a 3rd round pick, Preuss not so much.

Laughable!  Lewis will be gone in 12 months, Jones not long past that.  Tyson has an important role to play in this side over the next few years.

tyson is a best 22, second rotation inside midfield / first winger for us at the moment

With an ageing midfield North would be crazy not to take that deal, not that I want to lose Tyson.  If the fb post is true, maybe our offer was Tyson plus a draft pick and North baulked at that?

Just realised Preuss is in contract till end of 2020.  So we must really want him to effectively trade him out of his contract, so maybe it is a simple player swap...

...North will want overs...

Garlett & 43 for Preuss & 63 sounds reasonable to me.

Have to be prepared to pay a little overs for someone who has 2 years to run on a contract.

I love the idea of us aquiring Preuss. Our midfield could be coming into a decade of dominance and our season would be derailed with the current back up ruck stocks we have after Max. I'd be willing to pay the bloke huge overs to sit down at Casey and be the raininy day rainbow should big Max suffer and injury next year. The benefit to Casey and the developement of our midfield brigade at Casey would be so beneficial.

How many years was Jonathan Griffin back up to Sandilands? The big fella is STILL going, while Griffin finished his career on 97 games in a decade-long playing career as second fiddle 

Some blokes are more than happy to be role players eeking out a long career as a result

Preuss is an imposing figure, he can more than hold his own. Therefore we should be emboldened by Mason cox's performance in having confidence that one of our duo can be a strong marking forward for 70-80% game time. Lever and May allow Gawn to rest forward reliably instead of in defence too.  

Hogan, VDB, petracca given more time in middle as bulls as Weed TMAC & Preuss is enough. Then we alternate a new small forward in there with spargo, hannan and melk.

It was reported that he met with Melbourne on his own initiative late last week to sound out his options.

How could we even get him? We have no first round draft picks, and you know GC will want something big in return.

Yeh I have no idea to be honest. I'm just repeating what I have read.

Would be nice to have him, maybe Jason Taylor and Todd Viney can work some magic?

The club has made some good trade deals in the last few years but we really need to start nailing free agency if we want to make a serious tilt at a flag.

After yesterday, this seems like a much better idea.

Not that Max played badly but the Eagles worked out how to play him. Having either Vardy or Lycett go with him when he floated back or forward shagged a lot of our game plan. 

Preuss will be a definite starter of he is willing to pay a role that necessarily isn't first ruck for 100% of game time.

I have backed Tyson.

But after the prelim deesaster, Tyson for Preuss sounds like a fair deal. 

We need more speed and run, and delivery, from our mid-sized players.

IMO, we cannot play too many, not with speed and high disposal quality.

(Re Steven May)

What do you think is most important to the GCSuns, at this point for their club ?

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
