Pick 2 for HIll would be a massive stretch, maybe pick 2 and our 3rd for Hill, Langdon and their first (pick 7)? Was that how it was put?

Healy just wanted to know if we would be using out first round pick or trading it I think. Doubt he was thinking he'd get a specific answer, just I think testing the waters on our attitude to trade week. Seeing if Mahoney would let something slip. Of course, he gave them nothing but 😎shade

I spoke to a mate who has a fair bit to do with young Anderson and he said under no circumstances should we trade pick 2. said we will regret it bigtime even if we managed to sign Brad hill or someone of that sort. I wonder if we could role the dice on our 2020 first rounder and a later pick and try and land Hill and Langdon

I don’t think we will get Anderson anyway.  I think GC will get the 1st 2 picks in the draft.

I seriously doubt it. i think they'll get their first pick, an end of first round pick and some other help. i don't think the AFL will like the precedent it'll set to give them that pick.

Dees without doubt need to keep Pick 2.

I know the club is into I think it’s 4th year of a 5 year plan to win a premiership. But trading away an Anderson is beyond stupid. Aka Josh Kelly trade...

Trade a senior player or two and 2nd round pick for Langdon and Hill if we are chasing both. I believe Freo will ask for Brayshaw...

As if the AFL follows precedents and not media spun whims. The whole Pick 1&2 GCS issue has arisen solely because Tiny Cochring brought up player retention and the friendship of those two picks with the Media then promoting it. it's up to the other clubs to kick up a stink to prevent it, not trust in the AFL

And i've got no doubt they already are. i really think they should consider the Mini draft as a solution instead of impacting the 2019 draft. so essentially they get to pick 3 talents from the 2020 pool and offer them up a year early in exchange for a trade. i think that'd net the Gold coast suns at the least 3 very good draft selections in addition to their current one and wouldn't compromise the 2019 draft.

The only way I can see gc17 not being given a pointy end priority pick is if they somehow win two of their remaining four games

AFL will do everything in their power to give them a massive leg up

Could be jumping at shadows there; GC manipulating the media to get some kind of assistance, (maybe end of first round, PP), but pick 2 after their large haul of talent last year seems way too rich.

Pick 2 has to be off the table as we can’t pass on the opportunity of a pick at the pointy end of the draft.

Don’t mind the idea of our 2020 1st rounder being on the table though.

Drop a 2020 1st rounder on the table and back ourselves to climb while hoping we nab Anderson. Thing is our trade period is going to come down to what happens at the Suns. Do the Suns want Anderson or Rowell? Do the AFL want to give the Suns picks 1 and 2 or 1 and 19. Either way that changes our plans on trades. We are, as of right now could be trading pick 20 for Langdon and Freo want a first for Hill. Only way i see it happening is if we trade a future 1st round pick but i doubt Freo bite. However, it is freo and they like shooting themselves in the foot more than we do.

Brad Hill is everything we are looking for and is now in his prime. 

If they give up pick 2 for pick 7 and get Hill I would do it in a heart beat.

There are no guarantees with Anderson and if GC take him, then we don’t need another inside mid like Rowell

Must keep pick 2 at all costs. i'd be offering our 2020 first round pick and our 2019 second round pick for Hill and Langdon, and a later pick or something like that. and bank on us not finishing down the bottom again. 

if we can add in Hill, Langdon and Anderson i think we are in a good spot, especially if we look at maybe a Dan Butler for some forward pressure and a key forward, even a short term solution to support Tommy

    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

    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

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    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
