Thank goodness.  Hopefully that means we are closer to locking up the Frostmeister.  No more defenders until 2020 trade period pls.

Reckon? From that article: "Melbourne has seriously lowballed the out-of-contract key defender, who looks certain to reject that contract offer and join a third AFL club."

The Age also ran an article on the Frost situation which had a quote from his manager, who said we hadn't yet tabled an offer to him but preliminary talks had been positive.  

I don't know who to believe really.

Lots of mixed messages ...not unusual at trade time GM..

...."When contacted by The Age, Frost's manager Anthony McConville said he was yet to receive a formal contract offer from Melbourne, but he was confident the two parties were having positive discussions."

Keith of to the Doggies.  Things starting to move a little at Adelaide.  Will obviously ratchet up across the board from next Monday...

ADELAIDE defender Alex Keath has requested a trade to the Western Bulldogs.

The 27-year-old informed the Crows and other interested parties – including St Kilda – of his decision early on Thursday afternoon.

Doggies improving by adding a CHB and a FF.

Huge loss for us.

Who do we have to play as a key defender now?

This was always going to be just banter......Why would he come to the Dees for a start? I mean with Lever, May, Oscar & Frosty he was never going to get in.

Hard to believe after 18 games for the cows this season that they would let him go?

That's bizzare.....

He's about to turn 28 and has bobbed around on cricket and footy lists for years without landing a big pay day. This was his one chance to get the kind of contract that makes over a decade of pro sport worth the effort (compared to his peers). He's taking that chance and the Crows probably can't do much about it.

Adelaide are going to be paying Jenkins and Betts not to play for them next year as well as taking as many top 30 draft picks as they can get. It's as an aggressive a rebuild from a non hopeless team as I can remember and I think it's very wise.

Short term improving, long term has me wondering if Keath and Bruce are actually better than Lewis Young and Schache who might be relegated to the VFL. Or if 3 talls at either end is the desired set up, down back maybe, up forward I don't like the Naughton, Bruce, Schache combination.

Their coach does very well when given 22 adequate players who fill positional needs and play together. Start giving him options or deficiencies and the man goes a little haywire.

That is poor.  Bulldogs force him to cancel a holiday to have surgery that Adelaide didn't think he needed then don't get the deal done.

Does this mean he could walk into the pre-season draft?

 

Could we pick him up for nothing if of course, Gold Coast have no interest?

Apparently Crows have a 2yr low-ball contract available.  So I guess he could walk

Its a terrible situation for Keath:  Crows low-ball his contract but demand high draft picks.  Bulldogs offer him big 3+1 contract but only want to offer ho hum draft picks.  Keath the meat in the sandwich.

We could pick him up but I'd say we have moved on.

Apparently Dogs identified an injury that required surgery that Crows knew about (but their docs said surgery not required).

Injury flared up and he's gone in for surgery and will miss first part of the year.

Dogs didn't want to pay original trade price, and deal has fallen over.

Could be quite a cheap pick up for someone.

Apparently Saints medical staff identified same issue as Dogs and came up with the same outcome

I'd definitely pick him up as a cheap option.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
