So back on topic if we are stuck with pick 3, then the Giants have picks 12 and 18 or 19. That's not enough to do a deal IMO. I think we'd ask them to get future picks or players involved to bump that pick 18 up at least to pick 10.

The Giants run of finals success has hurt the chances of splitting the pick.

It has hurt the chances of potentially splitting with them, won't mean we won't be getting creative somehow. This year Freo will need later picks for their NGA guy, next year the Dogs have a very highly rated kid coming through. So next years picks could certainly be in play.

For instance offering the Dogs our 1st next year for their 1st this year and a couple of this years 3rds. Then we could package up our 3 3ds for Langdon, while keeping our 2nd.

GCS priority package makes the split of #3 interesting. 

GWS have #12 and #18. Their 2020 1st round pick will also be quite high.  Hard to find value in there.

However, GCS have 1, 2, 15 and 21.   They may also have pick #9 if they get it from Carlton for Jack Martin.  In 2020 they will have their natural 1st round pick (guessing #1 to #3) and 2020 mid round priority: pick #11.

I would be looking to split #3 with GCS:  2019 pick #15 this year (if they get it) plus 2020 #1 to #3 next year?  Or if they get #9 from Carlton this year - that plus their #11 next year.  Or some other combo.

The point is GCS provide much more fertile ground to max the value of our #3.  Or it will force GWS to up the ante for it.

All interesting propositions, however I still don’t think splitting pick 3 into 2 makes a whole lot of sense this year. If we could turn it into a few 1st round picks next year when a few more players may come onto the market then it could be a decent idea however will come under enormous scrutiny especially if it goes up in smoke. But in reality those picks this year dont look like being valuable trade currency as there doesnt appear to be many of any worth shopping around that would suit our needs.

If anything, splitting pick 3 allows other clubs to bully and hold us to ransom over players that shouldnt be worth that much. Freo especially would see a middle of the range 1st round pick as “value” for Langdon. Or if we were looking at a bigger fish, clubs would be demanding both. 

Regardless of todays news, pick 3 is still no slouch and would seem difficult to stuff up.

My personal opinion,

Out: pick 3, Future 2nd round pick.

In: Pick 11, Pick 18 and Xavier O' Halloran/Jye Caldwell from GWS giants.

So comparing the 2 potential offers for pick 3 (allowing for 2 potential academy & F/S bids before pick 15):

GWS have 13 & 21 - so would have to offer up either players or future picks, but they have academy kids coming through next year as well.

GC have 17 & 22 - and don't really have any players they could attach, so would either need additional picks this or next year. Maybe that was why they got give the mid first next year, so it's on-traded?

Hopefully it just means GWS have to put up a better player.

Splitting the pick with GWS would be a [censored] trade.

Suns want Billy Stretch? Pick 3 + Stretch for Pick 2. Gets Billy where he wants to go, They get mature talent and for only a one pick downgrade. Make it happen Dees. Go [censored] yourselves AFL.

Gold Coast would laugh at us.

GWS need an early pick for Tom Green.

GWS can find it elsewhere then unless they’re gonna add a gun player to the trade. Picks 13+19 isn’t anywhere near enough.

If we trade away pick 4 for a 13 & 19 then i give up. Lets just take pick 3 and be clever about other possible moves.

If we had Prestia we wouldn't have Oliver. Oliver is already a better player then Prestia.

I agree LT - Picks 13 and 19 isn't nearly enough.  It will all depend on how how badly GWS want the pick, and who we can pry from them who would be of value to us to do the trade.

Obviously we aren't getting any of their top end talent, but could we get a couple of players out of them for Pick 3?  We get 13+19, Hately and someone else (I could go through their list but I'll leave that to someone else) for our first pick and go from there.

Or, we may look at what GWS are offering and prefer to take pick three to the draft instead.

Take pick 3. I just dont think we will get the good end of the stick. Giants will not off load good talent to us, they will only sacrifice fringe players to go with basically 2 late first round picks. We will get laughed at now if we swap pick 3 unless sits for a bonafide star.

No. Suns got priority pick 1. So they have pick 1 for finishing last and a pick from the AFL which is pick 2. Demons now have pick 3.

You know i'd just about stomach the farce that the AFL dictated today..................if they come to the party big time when we eventually announce where our new training headquarters will be located (if that ever happens).

I hope that's what we also said to them when we were brought in to HQ only a month or 2 ago.

If the Giants are desperate and offer pick 13,18 and Hately/Caldwell for pick 3 I'd probably take that.

Could then take the two quick players with those picks or someone who slides. Cody Weightman has been discussed as an electric small forward and Luke Jackson from WA is one who is a similar player to Grundy and may slide a bit as ruck men often do.

We've been awful quiet on getting shafted.

Obvious answer is the AFL has our nuts in a vice with cash.

Hopeful answer is part of the Suns rescue package was a quid pro quo with us. Could pick 3 for Ben King be the sweetener? (I doubt it but a man can dream).

You are bang on @DeeSpencer, it's what is not said that matters at times. Some interpret our silence as getting shafted/bent over rah rah rah, - all clubs and all personel are part of an industry that is happy to look after all parties, even if appearances from the outside it does not look like it. 

The AFL still want Melbourne (read ALL teams) to be competitive due to TV rights...

It could be King, it may not be, and I guarantee that there is an agreement for something ie:, player, political, financial assistance, other , hence the carry on as usual stance.

    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).

    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

    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.

    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,

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.
