As a defensive forward, not a mid.

He's not proven at any senior level as a mid so shouldn't be brought into the conversation yet...

Merely talking about him as depth. Would have played more than just the 2 games if he wasn't injured IMO, but even still, breaking through for senior games in your first year qualifies you as being listed as 'depth' in my books.

Sparrow debuted in his first year, then missed the second half of the year with injury.

 

He debuted due to a decent injury list, and only debuted as a very late inclusion in the side.

He can't really be considered depth at this stage, although that could change next year if he improves.

Guess 'depth' is one of those words everyone has a different interpretation on. Happy to agree to disagree, seems a common thing in footy!

To me, if you've played senior games you're depth. Coming in when there's injuries is almost the definition of depth really. Can understand where you and others are coming from, it's just different to how I see it I guess.

There’s more than one way to swim a lap.

Trade pick 3 to GWS for picks 12, 14 and a decent player. Along with pick 20 (likely Langdon) there’s more than enough cachet to go a long way to addressing the outside midfield problem. 

Four inside midfielders is not an excessive number. Ideally you want a balance of four inside and four outside in your rotation. 

Hi Rangey/ Matsuo,

Oliver, Brayshaw, Harmes, Viney. Swallow will get more inside game time in 2020, Jones is only of value as an insider. A leaner, fitter Trac will play in the guts too.

7 potential inside mids.

0 potential outside mids ATM, at best maybe Baker. Langdon is B grader, pick 21 indicative of this

Given Jones has just re-signed and cannot be traded, I'd say the player there of biggest trade value (apart from Oliver) is Gus or Viney. I've come around to that scenario rather than trading Trac.

I asked for a direct quote. You quoted Tim Brown. And you’re talking about maturity. Please. 

Who is Matsuo?

Yeah, I'm gonna tap out now. Have a good one.

Pick 8 is too much for Laird even with the second rounder back. He’s a back flanker.

possibly

i reckon it's what adelaide would expect for a dual all-australian best and fairest winner in the prime of his career

we're also getting amon out of it in this scenario

You said Petracca would get us a pick between 8-15.

You then went on to talk about how Petracca hasn't finished top 10 in the Bluey.

Now you're saying pick 8 is too expensive for a 25 year old 2 x All-Australian and reigning BnF winner.

Given he has 2 bros and a lot of extended family there, I for one am shocked!

Edit. But i'll start the ball rolling: Gus + 21 for Cerra and Langdon.

Not that I think Nixon is right but there is so much noise around Brayshaw that just seems to not stop. Would be disappointed to lose him though Pick 3 that is still young and although his putrid 2019 his absence would leave us too thin in the middle of the ground IMO. 

Unless we could really over-capitalise on the trade I'd say no deal because he's worth more to our team and list than his true worth atm I think.

Agree Big Kev, but that's just an indication where we are as a footy club.

Not surprised at all like a few others as Gus played unhappy this season & with all his family in Perth, a move there makes sense.

Good luck Gus.

Mahoney put that rumour to bed a few days ago on trade radio.  I'm inclined to believe him, especially if Nixon is the one spreading the rumour.

If his old man takes up the Dockers CEO job I could see this coming to fruition one day - but not yet. 

Of all the media I’ve seen of all the Brayshaw’s, they seem like a family with really strong values and I reckon Gus will honour his current contract with us. 

Having all the kids close by is something a lot parents would love but others like the Brayshaw’s probably prefer they grow from experience of the ups and downs of life rather than the cuddles from mum and dad or his bro’s in Perf.

    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

    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
