Petracca on the Move?

Recommended Posts

14 minutes ago, A F said:

So my sister just texted me to say the Facebook pages are saying Petracca and Salem have asked to be traded. Am I a bit slow on the uptake here?

Which Facebook group?

Just looked at a few (mostly garbage ones) and saw nothing.

Aren't they all garbage? 

And waiting for more confirmation. Have asked her again where exactly she heard it.

If 17 post season surgeries doesn’t hinder your preseason, half the team requesting trades might.

We couldn’t even have one day to digest this crapola of a season before trade talk fired up.

It seems a bit of a stretch.  Salem re-signs in March, then without any rumour at all, seeks a trade in Day 1 of the off-season. https://www.triplem.com.au/story/christian-salem-signs-two-year-contract-extension-with-melbourne-130712 .  

Salem said he couldn't see himself not re-signing with Melbourne.

“It got done pretty quickly,” he told Melbourne Media.

“I probably wasn’t too fussed about it, as I knew it was going to happen eventually – it was just a matter of when.

 

I can't recall a big trade coming without months of rumour leading into it...

Agreed. I initially said the same thing about Petracca who said he loved the club earlier this season. Something has to go drastically wrong for you to request a trade 23 weeks later.

Slow on the uptake that the Facebook pages are 99% crap? 

Then yes.

Trac is our Stokes.

We should make sure he knows the glory will be greater with us.

Isn’t it prohibited for clubs to approach opposition players during the season? 

 

Officially yes, however the league lets you do pretty much whatever you want to a degree. It’s easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

My SISTER just TEXTED me to say the FACEBOOK PAGES ARE SAYING Petracca and Salem have ASKED TO BE TRADED.

Everyone have a think about that chain of information.

It’s almost as good as ‘someone told me they heard on radio’. 

Definition of Chinese whispers anyone...

Stuie’s Facebook page..! Bahahaha.

Can we have a rule that rumours from Facebook can’t be forwarded to Demonland? Let’s not lower ourselves to the standards of Facebookers. I don’t have or read Facebook or Twitter for the reason of them being absolute rubbish.

This is all crap. The cats may be “into him” but the chances of Petracca leaving this year are Buckley’s.

Oh Really, who would you rather play with at the moment a Team who consistently plays finals or us "Flash in the Paners"??

Is meeting with Collingwood as well apparently. Not sure if it is him personally, or just his management.

Not saying he's gone of course, but it seems like it's more than just the usual manager posturing.

Rumour of course, so you're welcome to believe or not.

Edit - Apologies, the meeting is happening this week, so post edited.

Another team will turn Petracca into a star.

I would cry myself to sleep if I was a top 10 pick drafted by the Dees and I grew up dreaming about playing for the Dees.

You're on Tier 0 with the club.  In fact I'd trust you more than the club to be honest.

For those who are Petracca fans the good news is that I haven’t heard any whispers of him requesting a trade, and if he had, I would know. #ETthetradewhisperer #Hehearseverything.

I am in the camp that I will keep my powder dry until there is an official word.

I personally don't want to lose Trac, I think he has shown some glimpses of a great talent (just needs to put together a season).

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as
