Recommended Posts

Forgetting for a moment all the trade and FA compensation minutiae of how these circumstances arise, if you were the football manager for these clubs would you pull the trigger on these deals?

 

Geelong viewpoint  - Would you trade Tim Kelly and Pick 11 for Pick 7 and Pick 15?

Carlton or Adelaide viewpoint - Would you trade Pick 1 for Pick 4 and McGovern?

Port Adelaide viewpoint  - Would you trade Pick 9 and Pick 10 for Pick 5 and Fremantle’s 2019 2nd rounder?

Melbourne viewpoint  - Would you trade Hogan for May and Pick 10?

GWS viewpoint  - Would you trade Lobb for Pick 11?

GWS or Carlton viewpoint  - Would you trade Pick 4 and 2019 1st rounder for Shiel?

Gold Coast viewpoint - Would you accept Pick 9 for May?

Geelong, Yes. Wouldn’t want to but you would.

Carlton, yes. Not sure on Adelaide, don’t know enough of the draftees

port, once again, don’t know enough but they prob would cos of the supposed great SA talent

Melb, reluctantly yes, but rather keep 5 and swap 10 if that’s what you mean by May and 10.

GWS yes, and I’d chase Preuss.

Carlton yes, GWS... not sure.

GC, Yes as I’d want a complete clean slate sort of like the lions did a few years ago.

Yes.

Carlton or Adelaide viewpoint - Would you trade Pick 1 for Pick 4 and McGovern?           

No. Would take Walsh or Lukosius. McGovern overrated.

Port Adelaide viewpoint  - Would you trade Pick 9 and Pick 10 for Pick 5 and Fremantle’s 2019 2nd rounder?      

No. Would insist on the pick 4 they’re getting for Neale. Port want Isak Rankine. 

Melbourne viewpoint  - Would you trade Hogan for May and Pick 10?   

No. For picks 5 & 10 only.

GWS viewpoint  - Would you trade Lobb for Pick 11?         

Yes.

GWS or Carlton viewpoint  - Would you trade Pick 4 and 2019 1st rounder for Shiel?       

Yes.

Gold Coast viewpoint - Would you accept Pick 9 for May?    

Yes but only with one or two decent mature players thrown in to sweeten deal. Frost and/or Tyson.

Hmmmmmmmmm...

Geelong - won't play finals again for at least five years, Kelly is already 24, so trade for the draft picks

Carlton - should keep pick 1, because in about four years time when the Blues are ready for their next rebuild, they'll be able to trade Lukosious for two top-10 picks. But seriously, Carlton people are surviving solely on the hope of some superstars giving them a core they can make a rapid recovery from, so the remarkable gun forward is what they need. Think Matthew Richardson for Richmond.

Port Adelaide - hold 9 and 10. Just because of the apparent curve of talent in this years draft still holding very strong past this point, and the possibility of a steal.

Melbourne - No, I'd want to end with May and a better pick than 10.

GWS - Yep, take 11, need to clear cap space anyway after SOS botched up the list management.

Carlton - Effectively two picks in the top 5 for 1 player who is very good but not team-changing, nope.

Geelong viewpoint  - Would you trade Tim Kelly and Pick 11 for Pick 7 and Pick 15?

Yes. Cash in.

Carlton or Adelaide viewpoint - Would you trade Pick 1 for Pick 4 and McGovern?

Yes but only just. Get more value.

Port Adelaide viewpoint  - Would you trade Pick 9 and Pick 10 for Pick 5 and Fremantle’s 2019 2nd rounder?

No. Without being Port’s list manager I would say they should hold these.

Melbourne viewpoint  - Would you trade Hogan for May and Pick 10?

If that’s the absolute best on offer then yes. 

GWS viewpoint  - Would you trade Lobb for Pick 11?

I’m gonna say yes, Lobb is more suited as a forward and the Giants could use a quality hit out guy. Maybe trade it for Pruess and another pick.

GWS or Carlton viewpoint  - Would you trade Pick 4 and 2019 1st rounder for Shiel?

GWS - Yes Carlton - no

Gold Coast viewpoint - Would you accept Pick 9 for May?

No, without May GC becomes a Crèche. Would much prefer a 1st rounder and an experienced player that can improve us right now.

Geelong viewpoint  - Would you trade Tim Kelly and Pick 11 for Pick 7 and Pick 15? Yes, that would be a great result in a strong draft. 

Carlton or Adelaide viewpoint - Would you trade Pick 1 for Pick 4 and McGovern? Adelaide yes, Carlton no if they think they can get Shiel.

Port Adelaide viewpoint  - Would you trade Pick 9 and Pick 10 for Pick 5 and Fremantle’s 2019 2ndrounder? Yes, if they are keen on one of the highly rated SA kids.

Melbourne viewpoint  - Would you trade Hogan for May and Pick 10? No, I would want Kolodjashnij too if we only get pick 10. First preference is to keep Hogan. Second preference is for two first round draft picks. Not really keen on May.

GWS viewpoint  - Would you trade Lobb for Pick 11? Every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Who would give pick 11 for him though?

GWS or Carlton viewpoint  - Would you trade Pick 4 and 2019 1st rounder for Shiel? GWS yes, Carlton would need a late first round pick to come back.

Gold Coast viewpoint - Would you accept Pick 9 for May? No. The AFL will ensure that GC receive a pick after their first round pick next year if May leaves as a free agent, which could well be pick 2.

Contradiction?

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
