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.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record... trade pick 3 for Ben King.

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.

    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

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

    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

    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?

    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

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview.

    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.
