Angus Brayshaw to Fremantle Rumours

Recommended Posts

Oh yeah, absolutely not saying either of them have anywhere near the potential Gus does, more just talking about our spread of depth and how we have a lot more depth in the ball-winning mid category than the outside runner category.

Reckon you might end up surprised by Sparrow. Just my opinion of course, but I rate him as a future player for us. Likely not our best player, but I can see him replacing Viney down the track and having similar strengths with contested work and burst speed like Jack used to have.

I think Sparrow will become the bullocking half forward bit like Vanders was last year. Once henbuilds his tank up then i think he will have burst in the midfield at some stage.

Doesn't find enough of the ball for me to make it as a mid...good young mids rack up possessions in the 2's.

Think Harmes, ANB and Brayshaw when starting at Casey and they were all getting big numbers.

Jordon is a good example of our youngest kid who really gets involved when playing midfield and gets as fair bit of ball.

I would try Sparrow back, his strength on the ground, in the air and leg speed could be valuable there plus he may read the play better with the ball coming at him.

Could also be a tagger down the track, has the attributes.

Happy to be proven wrong about the mid thing, I like a lot of what the kid brings.

It's his first year mate, and he's missed half of it with injury. Managed to crack a couple of senior games though.

Just gut feel, but I think the first few years Sparrow might play more of a half forward role and Jordon possibly half back. I think both can bring some good things eventually.

I follow Brad Green on twitter and he RT'd Ricky Nixon onto my timelime.

Ricky tweeted the following after the Freo Coach/CEO sacking;

"Imagine if you saved one of your best players from walking by offering his Dad the CEO role - hhhmmm I’m pretty Bray Shaw you get where I’m coming from #ChickenGoesBANG"

If this is the case I can imagine some serious sniffing for Angus coming up

Except that Bell is the one likely to be CEO. He is pulling all the strings.

Also Gus is contracted for a couple of years.

However, if we were to consider letting him go to Freo, what would be the payment?

Could a deal be Langdon, plus what they get from Saints for Hill, we then on trade the best pick for another player, say a King from GC. Keep a pick for another player. therefore the deal could be Gus for Langdon, King and another player. Of course it won't happen.

Great time of year trade time, as the possibilities of deals are fascinating, far more so than this season has been.

Brayshaw will have toured the facilities by then and made a trade request. Ok, Bell will throw in a pick 44 to sweeten the deal.

Is that before or after, Bell says they have done a due diligence and changed their mind and don't want him?

I think it was in the Langdon thread where I suggested a trade involving Brayshaw, Langdon and Fremantle’s first round pick was the suggestion. I’d happily retain Brayshaw however if he wanted to leave, I think that suggestion is fair for both parties. Thoughts?

44/25 + Landon valued at pick 20 equals pick 5 in trade value. Valued at pick 15 = pick 4, I wouldn't be so shocked if we caved in for that because Brayshaw told us he wanted to go.

It sets up multiple possible trade scenarios,  if Gus seeks a trade to Freo.

It could involve the Saints with Hill, Langdon of course, maybe GC and King, who knows, but it would be a multiple club and player deal.

All premature at this stage as Gus might be very happy at Dees.

If he's mentally unstable enough to be happy at the Dees after this year, then we might have to lower the value estimations even further :laugh:

Whatever we do, we'll f*** up the trade and get peanuts back. Only have to look at Hogan and Lever deals to know the MFC have no understanding over negotiations. Well do Langdon and offer a pick + Brayshaw or something ridiculous. Hell let's offer Viney and Gus for Langdon now and well throw in our 2nd rounder. F*** off Mahoney

You’re angry at Mahoney over a trade scenario that you made up in your head? That’s fantastic.

If the Dees don’t get bumped on Pick 2 with the GC PP. The Dees will take Noah Anderson.

If this happens, I expect Brayshaw to be on the move to Freo.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football
