It would take me 0.00000004 seconds to accept Zac Williams and 6 for 3. Sadly it will not be a possibility.

i'm a bit cautious though. i'd take about 0.000002 seconds.... pays to be sure.

Didn't they swap those picks yesterday?

Apologies, yes. Was looking for the Report that Dees were looking to swap and didn't check the time of the tweet.

Surprised the Trade Radio guys didn't ask whether Mahoney had anything else planned.

Pick 6 and the proceeds from Bonar / Patton trades for pick 3.
Come on GWS, roll up your sleeves and get it done.

Remember - if our trade with GWS is a pick swap ONLY then we can do it after the trade period ends.

No need to man the panic stations with minutes to go on Wednesday.

They'll need those picks to pay for Green. It needs to be 6 + a good player or 6 + 2020 first.

Dunno why there isn’t more chat here about a split with the cats. Their list manager came out and said there’s s player in the draft they like and the only way to be sure they get him is to have pick 3( or something to that effec). They have 14, 17 and 24 at the min. Prob not what we want but if 17&24 could be turned into a top 10 then happy days. 

We need to be talking to them regardless even if it’s just to force GWS hand.

Think we are still keen on it. In Mahoneys trade radio interview he mentioned it was important we maintained our draft position, both this year and next, as part of todays trades to set up for the remaining period of the trade period.

There's a Jon Ralph article on the Hun website that talks about our pick 3, but I can't get around the pay wall...

No need to talk to Geelong. Taking Green will force GWS' hand.

He basically quoted Mahoney saying we are happy “right now” to keep pick 3 unless a really good offer is made. So we are putting it out there.

I think if we do a swap with GWS, it'll come late in the trade period.

At the moment, even if we did a swap, GWS wouldn't have enough points to recruit Green and whoever they picked with pick 3.  They're well short and probably need a pick in the late teens or a pick in the 20s and a pick in the 40s to have enough points to recruit Green.

They'll get something for Patton but they'll likely have to give up something else before they're even in a position to trade for our pick 3.

I get the sense that we may hold pick 3 until the draft and then look at swapping picks in the early stages of the draft as other club's desires become more transparent.

The problem with trading picks during the draft is you can only trade for picks, not players. So we can't ask for pick 6 + a player, only a combination of picks.

I'd rather we get the deal done before the draft. Push GWS into 6 + Caldwell or Hately.

At that stage it’s too late to be any good to us other than revenge. If there’s anybody in the draft after the first 2 that GWS rate higher than Green then we get another inside mid for what?! To stick it up GWS??? 

Cats are prob in need of an inside mid in that age bracket than we are.

GWS would want to try and get our pick 3 to ensure no one bids for Green.  How about Pick 3 for Bonar and pick 6, we might need to throw in a late pick for points but I reckon GWS would want to remove any club from bidding for Green, means they basically get the 2 players that would be top 10 picks for 12 and 18, massive win for them

We walk away from Trade week with Langdon, Bonar, Tomlinson pick 6 and what ever we get for Frost.

 

This sounds like a sexy option.

I am the first to admit that I'm against splitting the pick but after having a look at the positions played by the top 15 picks in the Power rankings I am coming around to it.

I assume we are in desperate need of an outside mid. Other than the touted pick1the next player described as an outside mid is Trent Bianco who is ranked 14. (Sounds okay but might be too short at 178cm given the number of small players we have at Casey presently)

By the way what in the hell is a "balanced midfielder" as I notice there's a couple of those

No, we get the third best player in the draft at that stage.

Someone who can play both inside and outside I suppose.

We know what BWS can potentially offer up, what can the Swans offer up in terms of player plus pick 5, if they want our pick 3?

Thanks....I thought the same thing but as I had never herd the term before it interested me.

Would also be useful if they listed things like left or right footed and my favourite.... can kick both feet and turn both ways.

Agree, I think if we were to split our pick 3, the Cats would probably be involved. On a pure swap of these picks:

Melb pick 3 = 2,234 pts

Geel picks 14 and 17 = 2,186 pts

If it were to happen, might be some haggling over later picks to even the ledger.

I’m not across the draft prospects but most articles in the media have him around 5. If GWS think young or any other player is a better player or better suits there needs they will not match for Green. 

But at least people will still be able to complain that we don’t have any quality small forwards or enough players who can kick straight.

Would you take pick 5 and Buddy, if they paid $400k of his contract?

Fair enough. I reckon he'd bring 5,000-10,000 memberships to the club alone. And kids still love Buddy too.

Buddy's done for. Maybe good for 40 goals if he could get on the park and had good delivery. At best that would happen for 2020. More likely 12 games and 10-20 goals.

His one remaining weapon is his ability to kick a goal from 55.

Sad because he is a great player and if it wasn't for that ridiculous contract the Swans have he would have retired and assumed his place among the media in 2020.

Pick 3 is worth more than Pick 3 this year! It might as well be Pick 1...

Teams need to pay overs if they want it! It’s not a like for like pick as far as the points system says so...

It is a Nugget of a Pick especially for the Dees (because we have it) and the Giants (because they need it and other teams might want it)!

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.
