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

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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
