List changes who do we cut, trade or go after.

Recommended Posts

as a matter of interest, did chandler, c wagner, lockhart, dunkley re-sign as rookies? how does it work with the likes of dunkley, who was signed mid-year? does bradtke remain on the cat b rookie list?

presuming so, i think that means we currently have 3 vacancies on our senior list (lewis, maynard, garlett) and three on rookie list (tim smith, kielty, walker)

if we are able to pull off elliott and tomlinson as free agents, and swap what is likely to be pick 22 (after pointy end priority pick and points matching for green from gw$) for landgon, would we have no spots left on senior list?

who remains out of contract? stretch and jkh don't get new contracts, frost for north's second rounder (what will likely be pick 27)?

that'd leave us with three picks in the draft (say 3, 27, 40); do you have to use three, or is it just mandatory three changes to the list?

and either two or three (2, 20, possibly 38) in the rookie draft?

Don't forget we started the season with 39 on senior list so at this stage with have one extra pick that is 4 picks.

I'm confident we will sign Frost. We will only need a 3rd draft pick if Elliot doesn't sign, I expect Tomlinson and Langdon to sign.

Apparently we must take 3 from draft, or have you named a rookie upgrade?

Yep, 3 from the draft (though they don't need to be open selections)

Jones has good pace, and has the ability to burst away from packs well, but I agree that too often his skills leave a little to be desired.

Wouldn't have been against recruiting him, but I'd say the Saints are offering much more in the way of cash than we would be able to.

I'd go Gaff again. Trade out anyone other than Oliver from our midfield and get what we need to deal with the Eagles. Need better ball users surrounding Oliver and whilst I like the move for Langdon for what he brings aerobically, he's not going improve our ball skills.

I'd keep Harmes as well. A hard running, goal kicking midfielder who is only going to get better. A real success story for our rookie list too.

Petracca needs to step up next year and cement his spot in the midfield. He has the capacity to emulate Martin IMO, but only if he improves his tank.

That leaves Viney and Gus as players that are tradeable for the right price. Both are potentially really good players, but our midfield is too samey and if we want to improve our midfield, we need to trade out one or two.

Cue Demonland flaming. ;)

Oh and I'd trade pick 3 for Ben King. Thanks very much. 👍

We can bounce back quickly with a simpler game style built on hard running and cleaner structures, but on a solid defensive 6 and a predictable but dangerous forward line built around two key marking talls, some zippy smalls and Melksham/Fritsch.

King would immediately improve our forwardline. The guy is a beast and his height makes him very hard to defend against. Will explode next year.

I am huge wrap for him also mate. Shares the same traits as Tom Lynch. Add him and Elliot up forward with Fritta and Melk and already its a potent forward line.

We also snag a 12 year key forward.

Make it happen Jason Taylor!

That's not true. You must delist 3 players. If we take all of Elliott, Langdon and Tomlinson it will only leave us with 2 picks in the draft depending on Frost signing.

Today makes me more determined than ever to delist Spargo and Oscar McDonald.  They would be absolute liabilities. 

To win the big one, you need pace, toughness and skill. They would not stand up.

Add JKH to that list as well, sadly he is a VFL player at best. should of traded him off to carlton a few years back.

Agree. Jkh is unlikely to be retained and has not taken his chances.  Hard to see how he would add value in the GF.   Already on my list.

Though Spargo and Oscar Mcd would be on Goodys protected species list.

Varcoe and McIntosh are the two I would go after. I’m sure our salary cap is tight. Both would come cheaply and be best 22.

We should have started off loading them two years ago, maybe one by one each year?

In terms of the trade period, what will be will be.

Langdon and Elliott would be my priorities. Two big fixers for our system. 

Pick 2 should be retained for someone like Anderson.

Tomlinson not so sure. Only really looked out for him in his last two games, and that’s probably unfair sample for me to judge.

What would excite me though would be if we are able to get AVB and Joel Smith fit and firing. They would be like 2 best 22 recruits in my view. AVB adds so much to our side and I think Joel will perfectly compliment Langdon on the other wing. 

If we were able to get KK fit and firing would be an absolute bonus, but not hopeful there.

Top 8 for sure next year.

I think Petracca needs to step up and hence he should play midfield . If we cannot get Anderson then I would get Kemp. I would trade both Viney and Brayshaw for Gaff plus a third rounder.

Travis Varcoe?

Hell no. His best was 5-10 years ago. We don't need more inconsistent forwards who float in and out of games.

McIntosh I'd be interested in, though. Might free up Salem off half-back.

Not both for Gaff, but I'd trade them both for different prices.

If we look at the premiers and their player mix I can see some glaring gaps in our list and team. Roos wanted big bodied mids but IMO the game has changed and 1 or 2 at most and the need is for speed.

Consider these 6 players from yesterday and their height" Prestia 175 cm, Short 178 cm, Rioli 179 cm, lambert 178 cm, Bolton 175 cm and Baker 173 cm. They are all quick and mobile and kick well. That is 6 players under 180 cm and they win the flag in fact 2 out of 3 and a near miss last year. Also note they play 2 ruckman. MFC have Viney, Spargo, JKH & Bedford under 180

The target is pace, pace and more pace whoever they may be

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    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

    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?

    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

    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.

    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.
