Does anyone else think it's odd that we've not been linked to / visibly shown interest in Zak Jones? 

Firstly for obvious reasons, secondly because he has genuine pace (unlike big bro) and plays somewhat unsociably... 

He's asking for way too much.

i wish we were in the hunt for papley, but he's clearly going to the blues on big coin if he goes anywhere

Papley loves Papley. Wouldn't be surprised if he's asked for very big coin.

Elliott is the better player. Papley is a good player, but reckon we need someone with more zip than Papley.

Anyway, he clearly priced himself out of the market and nommed the Blues, so game over.

Elliott, Tomlinson and Langdon covered by Mahoney today. Any other wildcard trades??

It just means we've got those guys over the line. We don't tend to come out and say something and then have it fall over.

I hope we've got more up our sleeve as well.

The way we've signed up about 8 blokes I reckon we will target those 3 in particular and then turn to the draft and top up with kids.

Out of the Tomlinson, Elliot and Langdon, for mine, Langdon will end up the best get. I'm a little ambivalent about Tomlinson and Elliot will need to get on the park more. Happy enough if two out of the three do well. Then we aim to do well with the kids at the pointy end. I'd love MFC to take a punt on Kemp and they may if they have those three in the bag.

I know Mahoney shot down any rumour of a Brayshaw trade however I heard that Angus took a tour of Fremantle’s training base yesterday in Cockburn. Make of it what you will. 

Langdon and pick 7 for Brayshaw? 

Cerra, @Pennant St Dee?

Angus Brayshaw did a tour of Cockburn yesterday. Could he be joining his brother Andrew in 2020? #foreverfreo #AFLTrade

Cheers Dazzle, I had a text from a Freo mate, I’m guessing this is where it came from. Nothing to see here.

Disagee, I think Papley has significantly more zip than Elliott, especially given Jamie's age and injury history. Elliott's the better player close to goal given his marking ability but Papley can do a lot more defensively, up the ground creating goals and can even rotate in to the midfield and be very handy on ball. The combined cost of the contract and draft picks are just too much for him. Him going to Carlton now reminds me of us signing Lever - and not to bad mouth the player or the deal - but it's the kind of big splash move you make once you've finished drafting a heap of talented kids and you can afford a luxury.

Hearing whispers that Jacob Townsend of Richmond is going to be delisted, don’t know much about him, is he done or will he make it to another club?  #ETthetradebreaker. 

His only saving grace is that he played for the Tigers, and it could be argued that their depth kept him out.

But you won't find me using that argument.  I can't see him getting a gig at another club.

I don’t think he’ll get another gig either. After doing a bit more research, I read he was delisted last season and picked up by Richmond again as a rookie after no other club wanted him as a DFA.

Saints have approached nearly every player in the AFL, about playing with them. Those missed have been sounded out by Carlton. 

Saints apparently into Hill, Jones, Ryder, Butler and Howard, as named so far, while Blues into Papley, Martin, Butler and Betts.

I like Rotham as a player from the Eagles. He is going to be a very good player. Plays defence. However, I can see him playing outside midfield/wing and can push forward with his size. He is from WA. ?? 

Ben King, Casboult, Newnes, Farrel (PTA), Zac Langdon, Kamdyn McIntosh, Petruccelle should all be considered.

Sweet mother of Christ. If you’re treating text messages from Freo mates as legitimate intel worth posting you’re contribution to this Board is even more negligible than I ever thought it could be.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
