Tom Brown just said we are offically linked to him as is St Kilda and Bulldogs.

- Also said its Hawthorn and the Dees are 2 clubs linked to Brad Hill.

-Ed langdon also linked to the Dees.

Looks like we'll be busy come trade time! I like it!

 

Hawthorn linked to him is very bad news. Wouldn't surprise me if Clarko has done the scumbag Croad move and sent Hill away for 2 years in order to get one of the picks required for that O'Meara trade at the time, before welcoming him back.

Stats aren’t too great but gets a game for gws so must be decent. 

If he is quick with a huge tank he will be looked at. But I am not sure of his kicking skills. Anyone?

If we have Pick 3. I think we trade it for Hill and Langdon. Pull the trigger on that one...

And we definitely go for Tomlinson to play back with ‘May Day’ and ‘Lever to Beaver’. Versatile player! He would be a great get.

I want Frost to stay.

Had his best year with us and can get better.

Saved a stack of goals this year and if he can eliminate a couple of mistakes a game, he is a very valuable player for us.

His speed is the thing for me, he mitigates one of our big weaknesses down there in leg speed, i think the more games that he, may and Lever play together the better Frost will get.

Now that Coniglio is signed up I'm sure Tomlinson will be on the way out (just not enough $), given he's a free agent and won't need a trade he's well worth a look. I do think the giants play him out of position, I'd be trying to turn him into a Tom Lynch from Adelaide, a far roam high half froward (not really a 3rd tall and not really a wingman). Plus he has the potential to back up in the ruck as well, not for huge stretches of the game but to give Max a little rest.

I'd do that... but it sounds like Hill is a fair way down the track with the Saints, who are throwing large amounts of cash at him to get him to sign.  I can understand that with Jack Steven potentially going down to Geelong, but it also means it prices us out of the market.

Langdon will have to do, but I'm happy with that.

Go nuts for free agents imo 

good idea but the better ones come at a price.

If we can land Langdon and Tomlinson plus use pick 3 and 20 on young players I for one will be very happy with the outcome of this trading period.

I see no reason to trade for Langdon which will send Freo into apoplexy but we need to play tough if we are going to get out of this eternal rut the club seems to find itself in.

If we need salary cap space I would consider trading Brayshaw butI live in hope we can see that late 2018 form again...boy was he good !!

Big yes from me. We’ve had a crack at him before, so clearly rate him. 

We never pick up free agents, only lose them. Instead we trade and harm our picks. Time to start loading up on free agents.

Tomlinson is durable, has good running power, is tall and versatile. I’d offer him 600k and play him as a lead up tall forward.

Tomlinson is a walk-up start to our best 22.

I am happy to go after any available player that makes our team better.

Especially when they don't cost 2 first rounders or a top pick in likely the best draft ever, and aren't borderline obese and unprofessional/haven't done an ACL already.

No no and no. Both coming of career best seasons I can see this blowing up in our face. Different team different structures.

And with his height and marking he offers an alternate kick in option. Max on one flank, tomlinson the other with a kpf in the guts. Opens the whole ground up. Port ripped us a new one a few years back with the same setup.

    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
