Same article suggests we should target Bruce Gibbs. 

What are the odds of that happening?

Who's this Bruce Gibbs fella?

He played for Carlton once, like Bryce Doull ( who was a decent defender but had less hair) You surely remember him.

A code hopper like Israel Folau or Karmichael Hunt (only older).

OMG.  Why not just close the club down, or  sell off Ollie, Brayshaw, Gawn and anyone else who could help us get somewhere?

I am 100% certain that GC$ would love to have Clarrie.

i'm pretty sure there would be 17 clubs lining up to get him, not just GCS.

Now they can write the same article on the Pies and suggest clearing DeGoey and Stevenson to the Suns.

1. Paying Oliver a mega deal would hurt the Suns, they have to pay every one of their current players 20% over to stay, they’d lose 4 to bring in one big money guy. Nice idea but it won’t happen.

2. Tom McDonald was the main man last year even with Hogan and we rarely played 3 talls together. We need Melsham back and a 3rd tall cover for Jake. Joel Smith was the plan. The draft is probably the long term answer.

3. Gibbs has lost pace and hunger for the ball, his future is probably as a half back and we’ve already got Jones for that.

4. Langdon is an obvious move and Butler is a nice proposition as well, he’s got that bit right.

How old was Ronald when he left, his playing career was over by then, he went to Carlton mostly as a coach, and why did he because norm smith told him to, if he wanted to coach.

The available range of emojis does not adequately accord with the mirth I am currently experiencing.

I am feeling most mirthsome.

The article didn’t suggest the Dees should trade Oliver, but rather the Gold Coast should target him... there’s a big difference.

If I were in charge of an horrendously underperforming side, I’d make overtures to ANY talented player also

If Gibbs and Lever are worth 2 first rounders, GC would need to stump up 3. Or 2 + Jack Martin.

Last player i would trade.

Yep, we would need 3 x number one picks to even get close to drafting a player as good as Oliver.

This is the sort of article you read in the off season. 

Click bait "r" us.

Why stop at Clarry, why not have a garage sale and sell the whole place?

Yes lets give up our good players to start yet another rebuild😣

 

Now that is an interesting thought. Let's start  a topic anew: Who to trade at season's end - and how much will we get for these players? Or, Who not to trade under any circumstances - otherwise, empty to lists?

I'd start with the latter.

Gawn, Clarrie, Gus, Salem, Petracca, Frosty, May, Jetta, Melksham, J. Smith.

Goddard has always been a muppet. If Melbourne traded Clarry, that'd be it for me.

Goddard is correct, of course GC should go after Oliver, they’re a mess and they need A-grade talent. I obviously hope it doesn’t happen though.

    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
