If we don't split the pick with gws could we trade a future first and our second rounder for pick 9 (gws has Essendon pick). Gws Do it so they don't have to use a high pick on matching a green bid and we do it to get 2 quality young guns on the list this year. We are gambling on our self to finish higher next year. Just thinking outside the box

I honestly think that a trade involving Pick 3 will happen on the last day. I say this because there are several teams that want our pick for various different reasons. I imagine we'll be negotiating with most clubs to get the best outcome possible. We should win this trade because of the high amount of interest involved. GWS want it, West Coast may need it, Freo may like it, and so could Essendon.

Edit: Personally, I think Essendon would rather take Picks 5 and 9 to the draft. If they get them.

Essendon could end up with 5 and 9, for Daniher (9 in from Papley to Carlton).  That would be the perfect pair to split the pick on. 

Your forgetting the dedoro factor

I’m surprised that something that smells so much like A rs e hole (and starts with ‘D’) got through the filters here...but I know what you mean!  He certainly has an overblown sense of worth....

Seems the most enticing for us if that eventuated. We would have to add to that deal though, maybe pick 22 if we can use our future second for Langdon. Bombers would be asking for our pick 3 and future first instead I'd imagine, but even then I'm not convinced the would prefer that to 5 and 9.

Exactly. I can't see a 'split' scenario that would be likely as it currently stands. Will be interesting to see how this unfolds though.

Why would Essendon want pick 3 any more than we do?

We have secret info that picks 3-15 is an even talentpool and no other club knows it🤦‍♂️

In the end, GWS will have Pick 3. 

I’m hoping we trade it to GC for Ben King and then GC on trade to GWS...

Terry got Jack Riewoldt after splitting a pick.

On the other hand we missed out on Kelly.

Quoted from my posted in another thread.

"GWS finishing higher than expected makes the pick split a bad option. Mahoney said on radio today that Pick 3 is on the table if we received an offer of two top 10 picks. If that's what we're demanding, 11 and 18 won't cut it. If we can get one or two top 10 picks it'd be worth it though. Would love to land say Flanders and a Stephens or Weightmann.

Regardless, I'm happy we're going to be drafting in the first round again this year. It's been too long and has contributed to our massive drop off."

I can't see that article linked either, but I'm assuming it has excerpt from Mahoneys interview this morning where he stated two top 10 picks would be value for splitting pick 3.

I want Ash and Stephens. Getting involved in Daniher talks and securing 5 and 9 would land us both of them. Not sure how we get it done, we’d have to sacrifice several other picks going out as well

I don’t understand the dislike for Mahoney. He worked the loophole which landed us Clarrie. For that I am eternally grateful 

What loophole was that? I know we picked the Swans Academy player (Mills?) and the Swans matched the offer so we then picked Clarrie. I don’t class that as a loophole though.

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.

dude that's the most ridiculous post I think I've ever read on demonland.  and that's saying something.

stretch has basically no currency yet you think he is worthy of a 1 pick upgrade in the top 5. lol. Yes, he is worth an upgrade. An upgrade from 75 to 74 perhaps.  geez, I hate when school holidays are on.

Crazy talk, indeed.  Would happen if they really wanted someone and didnt think their pick (which will probably slide at least one place) would get them.  Who knows?  No one else appears to have enough value to split the pick, these guys might just, and Dodoro is not known for rationality...

just a hunch, but i get the feeling the reason we want to split the pick, is  we are keen on weightman, more than anyone rated above him and i hope this is what happens, i also hope the club is keen on gould, if we get weightman and gould and it costs us pick 3 i say do it.

lets just say we end up if picks 9, 10, 22, 40

9. weightman

10. gould

22.  one of worral, tahney, day, or taylor

40. pickett

we take the best 2 small forwards, a skilled medium forward and a aggressive good kick back flanker

jetta may gould

salem lever jordon

langdon brayshaw petracca

worral mcdonald elliot

weightman weid fritz

gawn oliver harmes

    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

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot
