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)!

Have you ever considered a role in real estate?

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.

What Jack Dyer may have referred to as 'balanced and amphibious'.

it's going to be interesting to see what happens

i'm not sure we'll necessarily look to add a player from gw$

i wonder if pick 6, pick 18 and a future first would be TOO much draft collateral for the franchise to give away in order to get it...

if they came with that sort of offer it'd be pretty tempting

With GWS chasing pick 3 and Geelong also wanting a pick in the top ten, maybe we could try something like this?

Trade 3 and future second(hawks) to GWS for 6 and Caldwell (or another decent player) 

Then on trade 6 and 50 to Geelong for 14 and 17  and hope to get Weightman at 14. 

I also think we should give Sam murray a chance as he will cost us nothing. 

 

IN: Tomlinson, Langdon, Caldwell, Murray, Picks 14 (Weightman), 17, 26

Out: Frost, Pick 3, 22, 41, Future second

I would be setting the bar pretty high for both teams. 

Giants, if you want pick 3, we'd like pick 6 and an established best 22 player, Jeremy Finlayson would help the forward line out. 

Cats because you don't have a top 10 pick we'd like 14, 17 and a best 22 player, 

otherwise just take 3 to the draft grab Young or Serong and get a young gun who's going to play in 2020 and help the side out for the next decade.

yep they're the same deals I was thinking of too. we could set ourselves right up if we managed to pull it off.

Caldwell would be a good get, but I doubt they'd let him go unless they were desperate. would be very happy to get him and pick 6 for pick 3 though, he would add a good point of difference to our midfield.

then we could entertain trading with Cats if we are after a couple of role players like small forwards or a defender, who will likely go later anyway. the good thing is we don't have to do anything. let those teams come at us with all they've got.

Serong could still possibly be around at 6 too, due to his smaller size than the usual inside bulls.

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

He wouldn't come back to Melb, would he?

It sounds like Mahoney has suggested we're after a pretty extraordinary deal, otherwise we're very happy to take pick 3 to the draft.

The longer we hold out and the closer we get to the deadline, the more chance we have of one team panicking a little and giving in to our demands.

Not sure how but I wouldn’t be entirely surprised to see us involved with ESS/SYD/CARL in regards to Daniher and Papley to somehow snag 5 and 9

I heard Mahoney on MMM this morning. He said he is still on the phone this weekend. Didn’t go into specifics but sounds like we’ll be looking at splitting the pick.

It can’t be left too late if a player is involved, as you need time to convince them and work out terms.

Too hard to really determine if we should split it or not without knowing the deal.

Should we split it for a top 10 and late first round; may be. Should we split it for whatever the cats have (two late firsts); no way.

I'm not in favour of swapping pick 3 for 2 first rounders. I'd only consider trading pick 3 if we are able to bring in at least a player (along with a pick if said player isn't worth pick 3 on their own).

Yep ... undecided here as well DZ

Let's just say we got picks 8 & 12 for pick 3.  And then we go to the draft.

You're still holding your breath.  For long periods of time (unless it's an Oliver type)

But if we traded the pick for proven talent I'd have no interest in what pick 3 actually delivers.

Couldn't care less because the decsion has been made and it's final.  You can't have regrets with drafting.  There's no point.

Make the decision and live with the decision.

If GWS manage to pry pick 4 from Adelaide somehow and offer it to us with sweeteners (Additional pick/player) then it’s a no brainer.

”Here is pick 3, take it but leave player x alone”.

My thoughts are if we’re splitting the pick then I’d look for a return of a top 10-15 pick and a player that is either walk up best 22 or bloody close and on the up (preferably will skill and pace in the package). Going to the draft with two lower first round picks is a lottery whereas pick 3 (while still a bit of a lottery) is giving us the 3rd crack at the best talent.

    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

    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
