Unless you’re the Suns and you’re given a priority pick to keep mates together...

I did think of that, although no one says Rowell is asking for that.

Have we convinced Martin yet? I’m not a huge fan but I can see him being a staple if he comes on board.

Martin

Bennell

Tomlinson

Langdon

All these guys are quite simply a massive injection of the outside speed and class that we have craved for so long! 
Why split any picks if you bag 4 players like this? Tell the other clubs to stick it and get some very good kids.

I hope we’re backing ourselves to convince Martin to join us.

I am sure we have tried and Bennell may help if he is mates with Martin.

However, all the signs currently point to Martin joining Visy mob.

With a year to run on his contract, James Harmes signing of a 5 year contract is evidence we are freeing up some room in our cap to make a big play this year. 

I believe the Dees will take Martin in the PSD and trump Carlscum with Bennel also coming as a DFA.

I hope not. It's big $$$'s for someone that has never really done anything.

I believe Martin can be a very good player. He will go to another level which ever club he lands at. He is only 24 so has plenty to give.
 

I would expect he plays half forward with stints in the midfield. Capable of easily being a 40+ goal kicker.

Just a gut feel or something you’ve been informed? Players normally end up where they want to go, at $1.5mil for two years, he’s going to end up at Carlton. Anyone who hopes differently is going to be disappointed.

Where did the $1.5M come from?

Has it actually been reported?

It would stretch Carlton just as much as us you’d think. 
I think it’s a load horseshit.

Hope this true. I also believe that he will go to a new level in a different environment.  Would mean our trade period has addressed most of our run/skill levels concerns.

I wonder if North are regretting their pick trade now that we could land both Bennell and  Martin?

I gotta say for the rumoured coin he’s asking for I would be passing on him. I don’t know if Melbourne is playing games with Carlton, almost trying to rule themselves out publicly so Martin doesn’t nominate a stupid amount of money and then we swoop. 

I’d say I’m 50/50 on him, if we get him then great. I won’t lose any sleep if we pass on him though.

I believe is my gut feel! No Sauces! 😂 

The Dees have a 5 year plan to win a Premiership! I think we are heading into year 4 or 5. They will pull the strings they need to achieve this success!

We sacrificed Pick 6 and $$$ to land May. We paid overs to get Lever, trading away 2 first round draft picks! We will do the same with Martin $$$, however get him for free... The Dees will and should be ruthless in there approach. The time is now!
 

Langdon, Tomlinson, Martin & Bennel along with Picks 3 & 8 is a significant step in the right direction.

What would that have to do with the pick trade?

That pick wouldn't be used on either of them.

Meaning that we’ll be an obviously better side and win more games with those two players added (should Harley ever be fit again), delivering Norf a worse pick than they were expecting

I'm not sold. Potential is such an ugly word. At 24 he should be established, and when he puts a big price on his head and noms a club, I say let him go there. Daisy MKII.

He hasn't had a single game in his now 6-year career where he's been BOG or at least turned a game on its head (e.g. Daniel Rioli).

Send Daniel Rioli to the Suns and see how many games he wins off his own boot. Martin is a gun and comparing him to Rioli is an insult.

Dunno about an insult but you're right, players like this are icing on the top, they don't thrive in bad teams (cue 'why is he coming to Melbourne then' comment).

Fact is good players are better in best teams because the better quality players in the team are opposed to the best players , so they will get a lesser quality player to oppose them in the opponents team

Because he's not coming, it's quite simple really. 

People need to actually start accepting that he's never coming to us. He's hellbent on Carlton and that's it.

    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

    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

    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
