Oh no please the Pies have been duding us for decades with their cast offs.

We got them back with an overpaid Woewoden though.

Take THAT, Collingwood!

Elliott absolutely fills a need for us.

Would be an excellent recruit.

I celebrated Collingwood’s loss just a little bit more because I thought it’d enhance our chances of landing him.

Could be the reverse RB, if they had won the  flag he would be a premiership player and could then look to build up hi super somewhere else. Now if he stays at the Pies he could win a flag over the next couple of years. If he leaves for the second bottom team a flag is a remote chance. Take the two year deal and win a flag seems a better option to me.

Just what we need. But, the lengthy injury interruptions and with this brief current stint making it the perfect timing for him and Collingwood to help him secure a longer contract elsewhere, add the fact it's our bogey recruit from team. I am on high alert!

They don’t know lagwagon?! They sound very uncouth. 

I will have to check. Not sure what they all listen to! I'd say Nickleback but I'd be showing my age. Then again, I'll see how I pull up from the Bris Lagwagon gig in March - I might actually be old (It's been a long time since I was in a punky mosh pit (ironically probably Lagwagon @ The HiFi))

Enjoy mate, last one I went to was The Bronx at the Corner couple of years ago. Fing loved it and the crowd is aging with me so was all good

Has Tom Browne ever been right about any trade story he’s broken? Genuine question.

Cast your net wide enough and you're bound to catch something. So long as he says Collingwood or Melbourne are likely, but Hawks are "Showing Interest" (ie. asked once about him), and then Elliot stays or goes to one of the clubs mentioned, he can say; "See, I reported it!"

In fairness he was the first one that broke the Adam Tomlinson to the Dees way back in early August and also said right from very start that Congilio would be staying despite strong offers.

Unless we were in with a chance to land someone like Papley we should absolutely take the risk with Elliot.

Was at the game on Saturday watching him closely. He reads the play and presents incredibly well. He's slippery and constantly puts himself in dangerous positions. Strong mark for his size and when the ball is turned over he puts pressure on the opposition.

He would fit into our best 22 nicely.

And also allow us the luxury of not playing other smalls/mediums who might not be ready for AFL just yet YB.  They can continue to work and hone their craft at Casey a little longer and show us their potential there before getting a lucky window call up through injury, suspension or poor form if they've earned it.

Greater depth will also mean spots in the 22 are harder to come by putting pressure on those in the 22 to maintain their performace.

Something we found out was sadly lacking this season with a stack of games being gifted (yes often through injury necessity) to players who clearly weren't in form and/or able to take the step up required at AFL level.

Its all and well and good to have interest in Elliott, but is there a Plan B? Who knows and i hope and i dont think its to much to expect that there  are other irons in the fire..  but its clear we have a need for a small forward, its imperative we get a good one,  if its not Elliott then are we all in on Spargo / Chandler / Bedford?

My guess is that Collingwood will come to the party and give Elliott the three year contract that he wants. We should be after someone like Sam Gray who might be more gettable.

Didn't cost them a flag. However, Stephenson had a betting habit when he was drafted. Pies knew it and withheld most of his pay to keep him under control. He had a weekly stipend of about $100 first year. Unfortunately they couldn't stop his friends from starting accounts on his behalf.

The BOG in the WAFL kicked 6 and hit a lot of ground gets And is 186 cm so may mark well also 

He might need to be taken with either 13 or 15 or whatever they end up if we split 2. Elliot would be a bonus also so don't give up Langdon for run and Tomlinson for  versatility defence forward or ruck (not Wing) need a faster running player Msy e turn Butler into that type as I am not sure we have any one speedy enough for Wing.

If a 3 year contract at the pies is the issue a simple solution is 2 years + one year option based on playing a certain number of games in year 2.  Onus is then on him to stay fit and uninjured.

And if we take him, we should do the same: 2+1 option.  And make his contract a flat $ plus a $ per games played component.  Sensible risk and salary cap management.

Goody on SEN:

“He’s an incredible player and I think we’re one of many clubs that would be interested in Jamie,”

“We think he’s got a lot of talent and he’s someone we’ll pursue. Like many clubs, we’d love him at our footy club.”

    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

    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

    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.

    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
