Welcome to the Dees Noah Anderson. 

Yeah umm, won't happen if GC get a PP before the first round. Until we're told it isn't so, i would be holding off popping the champagne just yet Dazz.

Don't worry I have already accepted that GC will get a PP. Just a pipe dream.

Bloke will be an absolute star.

Not under Goodwin he won't be. He'll drain all the natural talent out of him inside of 12 months. I just hope that come December, Anderson is at the MFC and Goodwin isn't.

Garbage, did we drain Petracca’s talent or is just not developed as we we had hoped?

Langdon for 2nd round 2019 (circa #21) and swap of 1st rounders in 2020 with Freo. Outside run on the wing  GET HIM IN  

Schoenmakers 25yo who can be picked up as a free agent - 3rd tall or backup for Weid  - Good Eye for the goals  (we need goal kickers)

#2-3 Ash -18yo  instantly walks into wing opposite Langdon  ; big call needed if Rowell was available 

#39 Bergman - 18yo classy youngster from the Dragons    Suits our need to get skilled footballers in  

# 57 - Brodie Newman 18yo  super talent  doesn’t get all the recognition  like an Easton Wood type   Competitive skilled wins the footy 192cm   Allows Salem into a roll in mid if needed

# 75-  will Fordham 23yo  (Frankston VFL) classy skilled midfielder who runs and accumulates OR Matthew Allen - eagles listed but  stars everyweek in wafl (wasted)

upgrade to the list. Dunkley. Lockhart.  CWagner

Gone. 9) Lewis Spargo Keilty T Smith Jkh Maynard Garlett Walker Jwags

Wouldn’t write our 2020 first rounder being off the table for 2 reasons

1. Clubs may value it highly due to our 2019 performance and not rate our chances to rise on the ladder hence giving us good value for it

2.Goodwin and co cannot risk another season like 2019 and would rather front load any talent income possible which our 2020 future rounder can provide.

I would look to trade it for a pick between 4-7 and see if any clubs bite.

if we can do that could look at both Anderson and Ash.

Out

Maynard 

Lewis

Garlett

Keilty

Tim Smith (May retire I heard)

J Wagner 

One of JKH and Stretch 

I’d hang on to T Smith if he isn’t retiring.

 I think we’ll land Langdon. And I’d be using our first hopefully on Anderson.

I would pick Anderson first. Big upside and his style and run makes him the AFL prototype  

But Rowell is ready to go in the midfield from round 1 2020. Suns may go for Rowell as a young leader. Great player. Selwood mould.

Have heard the same thing. clubs not happy but the AFL were never seriously considering alternatives. it was always going to happen.

i do wonder if we desperately want Noah Anderson would we entertain an upgrade. pick 3 and steak knives player to upgrade to pick 2

I just don't agree with compromising the top 10 of the draft for any reason at all. it flies right in the face of the equalisation policies. they should have been given pick 11 and pick 20. so they get 1, 11, 19,20 and then off field assistance and access to state league players without screwing over other clubs.

Jeez we're an arrogant lot aren't we. 

We've been around since the dawn of footballing time and it was only 10 years ago that we received a priority pick from the AFL. What's worse? As recently as 2014 we submitted another request for one with the AFL denying it. However, we did recieve pick 2 as compensation for Frawley leaving that year. For Frawley. Let's just take a minute to think about how other clubs felt about that if we're playing this game? 

The AFL bring in two more AFL clubs to expand the game and there are Melbourne supporters on here whining that the Suns might be taking precious pick two away from us. We've been around for how long and still need assistance in almost all facets. We make a prelim and are so arrogant to think it will just happen again the following year. 

We are a nothing club right now and supporters whining about the AFL giving the Gold Coast assistance are completely contradictory, pig-headed and are in total denial of the state of their own club. It beggars belief.

How about we look after our own backyard you peanuts.

The silver lining is we may now have to really think about our pick without the noise that 1 and 2 are set in stone. That approach has not worked for us in the past.

I’m not a fan of them getting a PP after their first. Should be end of first. They have enough young talent. Gil and co need to put work into player retention.

Bit of talk around that we will try and downgrade our first rounder if it's pick 3 to two later first round picks. and potentially even move on the 2020 first rounder to try and get something else back in the first round. 

i quite like this because i don't think the club is really 100% sure themselves what's gone on this year and needs to plan a little each way, we might rise back up the ladder, but we also might not, so if we can get 3-4 first round draft picks and really boost that young core and keep building for the future as well as add say Ed Langdon i think we are in a good spot. 

I believe Jeremy Cameron is a free agent next year? and lots of talk of him coming back to Vic so may be worth popping pick 3 under the Giants nose and seeing if they're tempted to maximise their value.

Sounds like Tyson Kelly trade. Can bet your money Anderson and Ash go on to become super stars while we are left with players who don’t defend or can’t hit targets

Please, we just need to get Noah to tell GC that he'll be coming straight back to Vic once his 2 years is done.

    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

    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
