• The news that Dayne Beams wishes to return to Victoria and play for Collingwood dominated today on NAB AFL Trade Radio. While he has not yet requested a trade, Beams would like to get back to the Magpies if a trade can be worked out.

• Collingwood still has some waiting to do with defender Tom Langdon, who is yet to recommit to the club. Sydney and Fremantle are going hard at the 24-year-old, and that in turn is delaying Dan Hannebery’s wish to be traded to be St Kilda. Many felt that trade was set to happen today, but Saints fans should still be confident in the deal getting done.

• Port Adelaide traded into the top 10 of the draft as part of their likely bid to land the best South Australian talent in the country. They handed over picks 11, 23 and 30 to Fremantle to get their hands on pick six. The Dockers will likely use these selections to help pick up Rory Lobb and potentially Jesse Hogan.

• Fremantle appear to be out of the running for Dees spearhead Jesse Hogan. Their football operations manager stated late today that the club will be ceasing their pursuit of the dynamic tall forward because, "what Melbourne would be seeking for a trade would not be possible for our club to meet." (In other words, the Demons refused to consider their shake down deal).

• This could change the landscape of the NAB AFL Trade Period, with Melbourne potentially now out of the race for Steven May.

• Tom Scully has announced that he wishes to be traded from the Giants to Hawthorn and has completed a medical with the Hawks.

• When it came to deals done, Dean Kent made his way to St Kilda, and Dom Tyson and Braydon Preuss completed a straight swap.

• The Blues landed another ex-Giant, with Will Setterfield heading to Carlton (along with pick 71) in exchange for pick 43 and a 2019 second round pick.

• Premiership Swan Dan Hannebery joined the Saints on a five-year deal, with St Kilda trading pick 39 and its future second-round pick in return for Hannebery and pick 28.

• Two days remain in the AFL trade period and a few dominos still need to fall before the Wednesday night deadline.

• The likes of Lachie Neale, Jesse Hogan, Steven May, Tom Scully, Dylan Shiel and Dayne Beams are all contracted players yet to land at their clubs of choice.

• Collingwood however, re-signed defender Tom Langdon who turned down offers from Sydney and Fremantle to stay with the Magpies.

• The Western Bulldogs got a trade done, bringing in Richmond forward Sam Lloyd for pick 64.

• Carlton list boss Stephen Silvagni said his club remains open to trading pick one, should an enticing offer come their way.

• With tomorrow the penultimate day of the Trade Period and with teams running out of time to get deals done, it is expected to be a busy one!

• The penultimate day of the trade period saw five players move clubs, with Gold Coast heavily involved.

• The Suns lost midfielder Aaron Hall to North Melbourne for pick 68, a pick that was then traded to Adelaide for a future fourth round selection.

• Pick 68 was then immediately on-traded by the Crows to Richmond for forward Tyson Stengle.

• The Suns also traded away former top 10 draft pick Jack Scrimshaw to Hawthorn for an exchange of future selections.

• Gold Coast landed Geelong defender George Horlin-Smith for pick 59.

• Tom $cully officially became a Hawk, traded for a future fourth round selection (considerably cheaper than his original price almost a decade ago 😀)

One might turn out to be an O'Rourke clone, whilst the other could be so broken down he might need to be taken out back and shot.

Sure. But it cost them nothing to find out...

we traded Pick 4 for a busted Toumpas a few years back

Cost us a lot...

Basically club wanted to improve 3 areas while imrpoving draft hand and did so at the expense of Hogan and Tyson. May and Hogan's impact at each others club will be highlighted all year. The one thing we need is Kade and Preuss to level up and ease the burden. Also 23 and 28 can get us some cracking players in the draft to replace Tyson and Kent.

Hawks, Pies, Bombers, Tigers etc have all improved their list significantly. Will be tough to even make the 8 next year. 

We have bolstered our defence but lost a key forward so break even at best. 

Luckily our list is young and talented so we should see some natural growth. 

Hopefully the Weed has T Mac or Viney as a training mentor. We need the Weed!!

an interesting year awaits

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle
