The clouds seem to have aligned on the Jenkins rumour. 

Unlike several of the fantasy rumours we hear at this point in the season, this one actually makes sense.

I can’t see this one being true, I’m pretty sure he’ll die if he walks outside of the goal square at Adelaide Oval.

Well, I guess it makes sense.

We are in need of a small forward.

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. 

Big novice when it comes to trade time so excuse my ignorance but...

Hill is a must get.  Langdon i have no idea as i haven't watched him closely at all really.  We are severley lacking in this player type and skill set though (Hill).

Im not sure why we are re-signing depth players when we are in dire need of two quality outsiders, a genuine KF & two small forwards.

We can't wait and hope that rookies will just miraculously fill these key roles with such a narrow window available.

Surely there's plenty of dead wood or surplus depth players that can be traded and/or delisted to free up the salary cap, improve our coffers and go on a shopping spree!??

Brad hill has asked for a trade back to victoria for his wife (she's from Vic).  Announced by Lyon on the news.

Jenkins is a spud, who is huge but has no presence on the field and not what we are after.

We all Know Freo are crap to deal with , whether we are late to the race or not they will drag it out to suit themselves, it will all come down to the offer that is made. Freo wont care if its hawks or Melbourne , it will be the best offer for them.

I may have missed something since, but that's not what Lyon said at all as far as I've seen.

“Brad’s playing super football … we have a strong working relationship and respectful on both sides,” Lyon told reporters.

“We empathise and try and put ourselves in all our players' shoes. But at the end of the day we have list managers and football sub-committees that get to work on those types of situations when they arise.

“I’m sure we will deal with the situation when it arises.”

Robbo reckons Saints are leading the race at this point.

I’m pretty desensitised to the utter shitfulness of this club. That being said. If this crap season means Hill overlooks us as a designation to instead go to [censored] St Kilda,....I will be displeased.

 Hill is exactly the player we are crying out for.

i sincerely hope the club has their ears to the ground and is ready at the drop of the hat to clear a salary or two off the books, irrespective of how many games they've played at the club, in order to match or even exceed a bid that the Saints are offering (Could be Frost, Jones, Garlett etc). I'd rather Hill and 2 more young draftees on minimum afl wage that wont even play a game, than 2 seniors on 350-400k who we are still waiting on whether they can make it, or if they have another year of afl standard footy to give.

I wonder if it's all tied in with the news that Jack Steven will probably be off to Geelong this year, and how much cap space that frees up for them. We might actually be outbid by a far bigger amount than we can possibly make up.

St Kilda could offer him a lot more cash, our salary cap is getting stretched. 

 

I thought Mahoney said last year there was space for another big fish this year?

Has the Club (as opposed to journos) revealed that our cap is tight?

We should have some room. After we signed Lever Mahoney said there was room for another. We got May but lost Hogan. So realistically money should not be a concern.

Agree on Jenkins. Downhill skier and gets the easy ball. We don’t need him.

So what can we give up to get him here ? Is it better than the Saints or Hawks offers ?

Sure we may not be able to pay him the most but he would get the chance to train in the best facilities, with the best medicos, in a team that consistently makes the finals and plays numerous blockbusters in front of big crowds.

In the interview he says his partner is from Melbourne and they may move back to Victoria in future to start a family. He said it's not happening now and the rumours aren't true. He's not asking for a trade and his manager hasn't spoken to anyone but Freo. Usual straight bat stuff, as we're still in the season and he's contracted to Freo for 2 more years.

I don't think we'd get both him and Langdon, but one of them may be gettable and a good result as long as no first round pick is involved.

Suggested yesterday that Stevens goes to Geelong, Kelly goes to Free and Hill goes to the Saints with swaps of late draft picks. No good for us but seems a good fit with 3 players who want to play elsewhere.

If we get pick 2 please take Noah Anderson and do not trade it away for anybody

Would we be happy to get Landon for our 2nd pick, currently around 21ish? is that what we are thinking? its a bit hard to get a feeling on what he is actually worth?

Only problem is Stevens is old and not worth the value of the other 2.

Im not saying it won't happen, but I doubt it will happen as you've put "late picks involved" only

    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

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
