We have only 3 spots available maybe 4 not sure if we went in2 the season one senior player down???? Either way we need 2 make some smart calls otherwise as it stands we can only pick 1/2 players in the draft if we r committed 2 selecting Langdon & Tomlinson. Surely we need 2 make calls on JKH, Stretch , J Wagner & Vanners. Am I missing any other senior players. I believe ANB is resigned. Ok VDB has a contract but he & KK r no certainties 2 play again. If we delete or trade 3-4 more at least we can capitalise on early draft picks & 2nd pick in the pre season draft.

Yeah its interesting to see where the other delistings will come from:  with 4 outs already in Lewis, Maynard, Keilty and Jeffy, i would expect 3 more, 1 of them to probably be KK, JKH and probably Guy Walker? That gives us 7 spots to fill.

Langdon - for 2nd Round / Tomlinson FA

Leaves 5 spaces.. 3/4 picks in draft 1 x Rookie 1 x Pre Seaosn..

Harsh on Walker hasn't been given a chance yet due to injuries.

Not really. Never really played footy. Persistent and intense Shoulder injuries. Why retain?  It was always a punt.

You can't replace him anyway because he is a category B rookie. He stays on the list for another year IMO.

Tim Smith retired.  It’s been tough as he had signs of being very handy. Young Jake Riccardi from Werribee might be worth a look if we are worried about our key forward stocks.  It’s tmcd and Weid and ... perhaps Petty (appears a natural CHB though)

He'll get picked up for sure, and I'm sure that's an area we'll look at boosting and more than likely with a state league rather than draft. Liam McBean and Mason Shaw are ex-afl guys who have been doing well in the SANFL & WAFL, but Riccardi would be the pick of them IMO (from limited viewing).

Walker's retired so that makes 2 rookie spots & 1 cat B spot along with 3 senior spots plus one extra senior spot because we only had 39 on the list. So if we get Langdon, Tomlinson &  ??? Elliot we def need to move on JKH & J.Wagner.So we can have at least 2 Nat draft picks & 1 pre season pick. More if Vanders retires.

I agree we have to keep on thinking about forward targets.  McDonald and Weid aren’t enough.  We will need another tall.  Riccardi would suit as a 50ish draft pick.  Young Emerson Jeka (great name) from Western Jets  is one to watch.  Saw him play v Casey Demons this year and whilst he only got it a few times, he presented as a strong agile key forward.

This will be a controversial one. I am basing my ins and outs based on AFL recruiter intel I have heard that Rowell and Anderson are uniquely talented and could become stars of the competition within two years. No knowledge of this myself.

Other thought is that we are heading towards a GWS problem where we will have a lot of quality players in the older bracket that will all have their hands out for larger contracts, and so we need to balance the list with more quality youth who are on smaller contracts.

Trades: 

In: 1, 2, B.King Out: Oliver, Salem, 20

In: Pick 11, B.Daniels, X Halloran Out: Pick 3

In: Langdon Out: Hunt, 37

In: Wines F3rd Out: 11, ANB

In: 25 Out Frost

In: F4th, F5th Out J.Smith (heard he wants out due to injury mismanagement...not sure truth of this)

Free Agents: Elliott, Tomlinson, Ellis Yolman, Newnes

Retired/Delistings (senior list): Lewis, Garlett, JKH, Wagner, Stretch

Total: Ins: 1, 2, B.King, B.Daniels, X O'Halloran, Langdon, Wines, 25, Elliott, Tomlinson, Ellis-Yolman, Newes, F3rd, F4th, F5th

Outs: Oliver, Salem, Hunt, Frost, J.Smith, Lewis, Garlett, JKH, Wagner, Stretch, ANB

(We had 39 senior players this year so we can increase that to the maximum of 40).

Oliver is great but doesn't gain enough metres per game or hurt the opposition enough for his level of natural talent.

Cautious but worth a thought.

Hey, mate, hate to punch a few holes in your idea. It's interesting and definitely outside the box, but these are the issues I see arising;

Firstly, Gold Coast would not trade out Picks 1 and 2, and KING, for Oliver, Salem and Pick 20. They want a top 10 pick for King alone. Salem is worth, at best, a late first round pick. In all, this trade would be a huge net loss for Gold Coast.

Freo want Picks, not players, they're going to the draft this year, so they won't take hunt.

Port would want more than Pick 11 and ANB. Pretty sure they wouldn't want ANB for anything more than a 3rd round pick.

If we get 25 for Frost I would be shocked. I'd expect a late 30's pick at best.

Not sure about J.Smith. He may stay now with the change in injury management team.

Good Free Agents, don't know about Newnes though.

Those are just my thoughts, hope you come up with something else soon. It was the good read.

Really good feedback.

For the Gold Coast trade I valued: Oliver (1,15)...he is 22 and his statistics are off the charts (pick 22 value more than what GWS got for Treloar). Put him in the trade value class of Cripps and Bontempelli...he is a preseason and goal increase away from being truly dominant. 

Salem is played out of position, I see him as a Wing/Midfielder. In this position I rate him as worth ~pick 19.

Possibly unders. Maybe take pick 11 and 16 from GWS plus a player and trade 16 and 37 to Gold Coast which would be 6610 points vs. 6912. Would this be too much for just King, 1 and 2? I wanted King as well because I don't want to give up a player of Oliver's quality without having one player who has shown their potential against AFL competition.

25 for Frost and pick 57 equals pick 33...fair call.

This means pick 20 for Langdon. 

Would have too many ins and not enough outs and so maybe future 2nd rounder for Hunt. Freo is losing two wing players in the same offseason...I thought they might want a cheaper replacement there but if they are still in line for T.Kelly they would prefer the pick. 

Wines and future pick for 11 and Hannan? Need someone worth a late 2nd rounder in value. You are right, losing a young captain you need something to sell to the fans, AND not worth enough to get it done. Wines not coming straight back into the team as a fit captain and being shopped currently lowers his value...this is the time to buy him while his value is lowered. 

Newnes is being played out of position. He is a Half forward flanker/midfielder. Peaked in 2016-17 when they played him in these positions and dropped his outputs since shifting out of position in the backline. Saints have too many small forward on their roster and due to his quality he shifted to be their quality ball user even if it isn't his best role. RFA, second round pick compensation would be about right in his value.

Don't agree with all of it, but love that you had a crack. I wish more posters on here would give up their thoughts/ideas on what their ideal trade period looks like, but suspect most don't because other instantly go negative on it.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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
