Head scratcher if true. We basically fielded our best back 6 yesterday minus Jetta and we conceded the most points since round 3. Defence isn’t the problem.

Is it a coincidence that anyone who plays as the Adelaide’s third tall defender seems to be a gun... Adelaide’s gameplan and back six set up seems to be a great place for 3rd talls to stack up possessions and intercepts:

Lever

replaced by Doedee

replaced by Keith.

 

On Keith; if he wanted to come to us and it wasn’t a first round pick... yes- never turn away quality.  But like everyone here I believe that it’s far from a priority.

The club is lost. Its sick, its in no mans land. Fancy showing interest in Alex Keith.. hey here is an idea.. show some interest in someone who can run and spread and has lovely skills.

The club is spiraling out of control at the moment.. better get out of this spin, otherwise we will crash land and the recovery will be horrendous.

Heath has been a depth player.  He looks good and plays his role because of their system so is apparently in 'AA' form for just two months.

Put him in our, very different, system and every chance he becomes another depth player.

Walk away.

Lol.

Next up, there will be talk of trading picks to get Sam Day (the free agent not currently getting a game at the Suns).

Not setting the world on fire.... 

Rarely in the best however rarely goes a game without kicking a goal.

My first thought is there isn't much to this. He's probably one of 20 out of contract players we have interest in across multiple positions.

Any time you can upgrade a key defensive spot even if you've got money and resources tied up in that area already then it isn't a bad idea to try.

Frost is out of contract so we'll have to either sign him or a replacement anyway. Is spending an early 2nd round pick and an extra 100-200k a year on Keath over Frost a good idea?

Salem, Melksham and Weideman have all signed on. Lewis and Garlett are going. Jones maybe 1 more on a veteran money deal. Oskar Baker the next priority and you wouldn't think he'd break the bank. So if we've our salary cap in decent order there should be some cash to go after some players.

Hey guys, can pretty much confirm there's not much substance to this. The club would look at it for the right price (contract and trade wise), but at this stage this all at the doings of his manager who is trying to ramp up negotiations for his client. Not surprising Tom Morris is involved given the tone of his articles about the club since being basically shunned.

Obviously I'm a random on the internet so take it as you will, but that info was passed on to me by someone who has got much right in the past. Cheers!

Are we trying to reduce oppositions to the point where 7.15.57 is a winning score?

Haven't heard anything solid at this stage, just the same sketchy whispers you guys would have already heard .

Hard to know exactly where our priorities would lay given how the season has panned out, needs nearly everywhere.

Not that I can mention other than what I said in the post. Just someone who has passed on good info in the past and I have no reason to doubt. The old someone who knows someone. I get that that probably doesn't cut it, but that's the internet I guess.

Victorian-born Keath is reportedly being offered big money from Melbourne while Hawthorn is keen on Greenwood, according to an AFL report last month.

‘Big money’? Pull the other. It would certainly have to be below or on the AFL average. Big money in comparison to the average Australian wage perhaps, but not AFL players wage.

The only reason why i can see us going for him is to replace OMAC.

If that is the case, then i thoroughly encourage it. Maybe Frosty might just end up on a wing after all!

    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
