Langdon, Anderson AND Hill WILL be Demons in 2019 - barring a major hiccup. Langdon is across the line - Suns taking Rowel it’s a Monty.. Hill only talking to Dees & Hawks, fact! But word is our offer to a Freo is far superior (likely 2nd rnd & pick swaps maybe young player). Also some spec around that it may also involve Langdon & Jetta but that’s just too early on to know. Both Brayshaws receiving spec both ways also yet odds are astronomical either gets moved.   

 

Anderson is the light at the end of a shitty tunnel of a year, No chance we are trading the pick unless it’s super deal ie 2 for Hill AND Langdon, even then we’d want a top 15 pick back by throwing in 2nd rnder.

2nd round for Hill? no way they'd except that. They'll want a 1st round pick for sure. 

Does anyone know if we can trade a future 1st this year?

Selective reading my friend? I’d suggest you read EXACTLY what Nudge said, then comment.

Yes - we ALL do! AFL Not compromise another draft for those incompetent buggers.. best they’ll get is start of 2nd round that’s all that’s in rules to give now anyways!!!

I agree with this. The AFL surely realise they have enough young talent. They just need to keep it. A second rounder is far more likely. AFL also need to stop playing with the top end of the draft compo picks aside. Even they might come under scrutiny at some stage. 

There is a theory AFL will hand over pick 2 so they can secure Rowell and Anderson as best mates. Handing over a pick on the premise it has to be used on a certain player is effectively draft tampering. Yes I understand those two are at this point in time the standouts.

No I understand

Hill for 2nd round and pick swaps maybe a younger player??

Pick swaps? Are we talking later picks?

Younger player i assume would be steak knives.

Still think they'd demand a 1st round pick regardless but that's just my opinion.

We'd have to give up a first round pick for Hill but potentially we could trade pick 3 for Hill and their first rounder - around 9. 

then add pick 21- Langdon to the deal and it's a win - win for both sides in my opinion.

Freo are in the Essendon mold of dealing with at Trade time. There is no way they will settle for a second round pick for Hill IMO. I reckon they will want / demand a first rounder.

I always think back to the Salem/Tyson or J.Kelly. If these 2 kids are as good as people say we take one with our pick.

my view of the draft is that after picks 1 & 2 it drops off a little. if Noah Anderson is on the table and the suns don't get pick 2 i think we grab him in the draft. 

if the Suns get picks 1 & 2 i think we trade 3 if there is an opportunity to fill a significant need as in either a big key forward, or multiple outside runners.

I simply dont think we can afford to give up an early pick again, especially if its Pick 2 and we get 1 of the 2 clear standouts in the draft.

I wouldn't trade pick 2, but i would downgrade pick 3 if it meant getting an established player in as well.

if Noah anderson is an option i'd take him over anyone else that is currently an option

Ok, I’m not across it to be honest. Would love another star to come in and play along side Gawn and Oliver.

Yep, there seems to be a drop off after the top 2, so i could stomach it a bit more if it was pick 3 but even then, our last top 10 pick was 2015 and i know you said we might get pick 9 back which is something im still a bit reluctant to spend it.

The Other hand, we get HIll an established player of the caliber we exactly need who is 26years old.

I'd rate Hills value at about the pick 13-18 mark. so i think a trade of Pick 3 for Hill and Pick 9 would be a fair deal. the Dockers may like an upgrade of picks to get it over the line. 

established outside midfielder and a presence in the top 10 is a good result.

Brad Hill will inform Fremantle of his decision to officially ask for a trade as soon as Friday but the Dockers can still cash in on his three seasons at the Dockers.

Hill has every intention of playing in Melbourne next year, with his partner to move back home over summer and the star wingman expected to join her.

Brad Hill set to tell Fremantle he wants to be traded

Freo managed to turn Lachie Weller into pick 2. Here’s hoping we’re a little smarter.

There is no doubt he will want to go back to Hawthorn. The only sticking point is Melbourne offering a better offer than Hawthorn.

Hawks will likely offer pick 7 for Hill and Dockers would jump at it. Hawks would pickup a pacy midfielder to compliment Mitchell, Scully, Worpel, Omeara.  That’s not a bad midfield group.

Hoping the people i'm speaking to are wrong, but i'm hearing the Saints and Hawks are ahead of us in the race for Hill. we are having to be pretty creative Salary cap wise to come up with a financial offer to get him and Langdon and it's looking like the club is prioirtising Langdon over Hill. and the Saints and Hawks have some money to splash.

Hill will nominate Hawthorn, he is not considering any other clubs at this time. Make no mistake, a deal will get done. #ETthetradebreaker. #It’sstartedearlythisseaeonbecausewe’recrap. #Youhearditherefirst. #Demonlandexclusive.

Nah nothing much else. we've left our run a bit late for Hill it seems but Langdon might be pretty close to over the line barring a big offer from another club.

    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.

    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.

    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
