Does it come with a knife? If so I bid $20 and the use of my membership for the first G match of 2019

Dees fans want pick 5 & 6.

Freo fans only want to give pick 5 & nothing else.

What’s the bet it ends up being pick 5 & 13 and everyone ends up feeling like they’re taking their second favourite girl to the prom?

That’s usually how life goes isn’t it ...

Hogan will ONLY request a trade once a deal has been agreed between Melbourne and Fremantle. Which may or may not even happen.

Melbourne has told him (and Freo) we will be holding him to the final year of his CONTRACT if we are not suitably recompensed in trade. 

Hogan will say nothing until this happens.

Yes i agree

As i said earlier the longer the Neale deal drags out the less likely it'll happen

The Neal domino needs to fall first

The thing that amazes me about a large number of posters on this thread is they seem to think that the MFC have a burning desire to keep young Jessie.

From my seat in the outer the FD quite clearly don't.

Have any of you out there considered the possibility that the MFC might have initiated this trade? 

It is entirely possible the MFC did have burning desire to keep JH, but when it became clear he would not extend his contract, that desire was tempered by the possible gains in trading him now rather than being almost forced to in a year.  If I was a gambler, that's were I'd put my money.

I am far from convinced that was the only motivation sue.

What is it that has happened or is about JH that causes that doubt OD?  His behaviour, injury? 

 If so, I'm far from convinced about what has been said about the latter (even though I have expressed concerns about his attitude from time to time).  And as for injury, we would be just guessing.   Or is it something else that concerns you?

May clearly favours us but that could be because we are more likely to get a trade done.  His other suitors are equally well placed to play finals.

The longer the Neale/Hogan thing drags on the greater the likelihood those clubs will ramp up their efforts for May. 

Eddie especially will go after May big time and the Pies list Manager Ned Guy was May's player manager until he joined the Pies last year.

Time is ticking!

Where does this assumption from many posters come from that a player is not ‘invested’ in performing to the best of his ability purely because they haven’t signed a long term deal? 

Hogan is a professional footballer. If anything he may come out and kick 75 goals next season as he tries to impress suitors and stick it right up everyone!

It's not an assumption, it's usually a fact. In relation to para 2 if he kicks 75 next year, maybe the last hiding he got has woken him up a tad.....

Tom Browne saying Hogan will leave this year or next. Not sure I want him in the team when he has one leg back in WA.

MELBOURNE want pick 5 and a future first round pick from FREO

Guessing! I'd be happy with that as a trade though, very much doubt we'd be getting 5 & 6 this year like most want.

Browne also said that Freo had all the advantage in these deals and that we want May more than Hogan... So "in his opinion" it would be pick 5 and a second rounder.... 

I am setting myself up for disappointment here.. We arent going to get what we want

Just shows how far Browne Morris has been shut out by demon insiders.  He now relies on other media outlets or guesses.

Is a demon supporter and early this year he was doing the club podcast, then kept leaking stuff which is pretty low.  Got the boot from the podcast.

Clearly is now a persona non gratia! 

Edit:  Referred to Tom Browne but my post was intended to be about Tom Morris

Good get, mate.

Reckon we'll still get our man here though. I'm sure our FD have an alternative for how we go about getting the May trade done without the Hogan picks.

I’m quite certain Tom Morris was doing the club podcast until he was booted. He’s from Fox Footy, dresses like a trust fund baby and doesn’t shave.

Tom Browne is the lump of wood from Channel 7 who has the presentation warmth of Professor Snape. Not sure if Browne supports Melbourne.

 Don't know sue but there is something missing in the story.

The MFC seems too methodical and calm from day 1. Almost like they started the trade for reasons of their own.

My bad.  I got the two Toms mixed up. 

My post was referring to Tom Morris from Fox Footy who is a dee supporter.  Deserved to get the boot from club podcast and clearly is no longer ITK.

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
