Short of being his manager or his old man I’m sorry DazzlerD but that’s not something you or anyone else can know definitively. Until the bell rings the stock exchange is open. 

Suit yourself bro..

Get both of them - one on each wing. They are both exactly what we need. So long as we hold our first pick, I would be all for us getting Brad and Stephen Hill. I would even propose trading Angus Brayshaw and our second round pick, for Brad Hill and Freo's first round pick. Although, I don't think Freo would be silly enough to do that. Might be able to get a future first off them though.

Langdon is the Docker we want

Agreed.

Was Hill the hawk in trouble off field after a GF?

Article backing up what i said earlier.. if Brad Hill ends up asking for a trade request it will be at Hawthorn and Hawthorn only.

why does he want to leave after wanting to go home and play with his brother and his team are on the up?

sounds like Denham BS to me

His girlfriend is from Victoria and she’s homesick.

There’s nothing conclusive in that article at all. As Brereton mentioned - Hawthorn may have other more pressing list needs. Things change. Plenty can happen between now and October.

Traded for pick 23 a few years ago. Is playing better now than he was then, but is also a few years older. Our 2nd rounder should get it done.

If the club is serious we should be doing everything to try and convince him to come over. Get his brother too as a free agent.

Keep gunning for Langdon as well.

Greg Denham just said on SEN he wants out of Freo and will be seeking a return to Victoria for the 2020 season. No club yet specified.

Triple premiership Hawk wingman, Freo B&F 2017, exquisitely skilled smooth mover. And still only 25yo. 

Statistically 2019 is shaping as the best season he’s put together as well. Showing absolutely no decline in his output.

You’ll have to mount a pretty strong case as to why we should go hard after this player given his skill set is exactly what we need. 

Start the bidding at our second round pick thank you very much.

And cue the negative Nellies in 3 - 2 - 1 ...

”He’d cost too much ... “

”He’ll only go to club X, Y or Z”

”Overrated ... “

”Off field problems ... “

Etc etc etc. Yawn.

No way. Too much baggage. He will end up walking away.

Not worth the oxygen. Ed Langdon is one of the only players that will come to us for next year because we have put work into him. We have messed up our hopes with a big fish unless we can blitz the second half of the year!

Hawthorn will now be assessing their entire list strategy moving forward. They have not taken quality kids at the draft in several years and now have an ageing group with holes in key positions they need to fill. Not convinced at all they would prioritise Brad Hill over other concerns, nor have the cachet to do it on terms that would satisfy Fremantle. He is under contract. Bell will demand a late first round to early second round pick or they will keep him. 

Hill’s girlfriend being in Melbourne is the primary reason for wanting to return to Victoria. He can compromise and come to the mighty Dees. Send Goodwin, Jetta and JKH over there to have dinner with him at a nice restaurant in Cottesloe, invite Wizard Farmer as well and let the brothers pump up the tyres of the red and blue. 

We can do this!

JKH?? For what? Get a VFL standard player to try and convince a gun AFL player only to be delisted couple of months later.. 

Lol management at its best...

We'll bring JKH to be his little bus boy, to wait on him by hand and foot.

I'd get Brad Hill with a second rounder, but there's no need for the attitude at the end of your post. Just post your topic and engage properly.

I like you as a poster when you stay on topic and don't bait or get baited by others too easily.

Fair enough AF. Was just pre-empting the usual Wallys who turn their noses up at everything I post regardless of content.

either hill would perfectly suit our system, but as others have said the balance of time and effort put into ed langdon clearly has us chasing him, whereas the hawks have put in the work to recruit brad hill back for at least 18-24 months

if stephen hill has decided that he wants out as a result of his brother also leaving, i'd happily have him if we can't get brad, even though he's four years older and clearly prone to injury

The one who's spent a whole team of time injured and might not have the soft tissues to play a lot of footy on the wing or even half back might not suit us all that well!

I'd only want Stephen if he's a cheap free agent and only after getting one of Brad Hill or Langdon. 

Brad Hill is the better over all player but even with Langdon's sloppy skills I'd be very keen on him. Stronger at the contest than Hill.

Either way, let's get a fair dinkum wingman so we can use Fritsch, Baker, Hunt and maybe KK through the flanks and build a running game.

The exact type of player we need (I’m aware he’ll never be a Dee) just moves to so well and doesn’t stop running all day. Beautiful user of the footy too.

I’ve heard Fremantle have agreed with Hill to let him go at the end of the season. It will open the door to allow them to enter the race to sign Tim Kelly.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
