So apparently we knocked back the offer of pick 6 and GWS 2020 1st rounder.

according to whom? we don't leak, so unless mahoney explicitly stated it it's mere conjecture from people looking to fill content and airtime

Would you do pick 26 (North) & future 1st (GWS), for 3?

My bad, pick 6 was obviously meant to be coming our way too, in this scenario

According to Sam Mclure.... I know he isn't the most reliable.

I assume the Giants may have mentioned it, who knows.

I think we'd want more than that, if they finish well, that pick could be early 20's

Problem is GWS's next pick after 6 is 40

I'd say we are after a player, even with such a small amount of time to go.

Possibly Finlayson

Looks like Bonar will be getting traded today. What if they throw that pick in as well? Not sure what else GWS have to offer, in terms of picks.

Apparently now paper work can be lodged before 3pm (due to tv coverage).

Then why would we use 6 against them, which is what he suggested?

Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't see anywhere that he suggested doing that?

Yep, if North give one of their second rounders 26 or 27 for Bonar, then it could be:

Pick 3 for 6, Pick 27 2019, GWS future first round pick

That would be a robbery. GWS wouldnt even consider it. They need the pick they get back for Bonar to use points to land Green. I’m of the mind that GWS 1st round next year will be worth diddly-squat in next years draft. We should be looking at wrenching out pick 6 and a player for 3

I think the Bombers have picks 30 and 33 from this year too. I think they are the favourites atm

Oh I totally agree, thing is we can play hard ball, we're not here to do GWS any favours.

If we want Green we'll bid for him. If GWS want that out of the equation, pay up!

I agree.

They already have a midfield that consists of Taranto, Ward, Coniglio, Kelly,  Hopper, Whitfield, Williams & Toby Greene.

They've also got Caldwell, Hateley & O'Halloran also tryin to get into the side and they would also be adding pick 3 plus Green this year.

Caldwell is the one I want.

6 & Caldwell for 3. Take it or leave it.

If we have knocked back that offer from the Giants, then I think that's a sensible move from the club.  It's not a great offer really and we have time on our side - we either get a better deal or take two ripping picks to the draft.  That's a win/win in my book.

Giving 6, 27 and next years which will be between 14-18 all for moving 3 spots up in the draft. Turn it up!!

No too risky.  And we don't need another insideish mid.  Unkown quantity at senior level also.  Pass.

If we are chasing a player from them it needs to happen in the next few hours.

Not sure what else we are chasing from them. Even their second rd 2020 is worth next to bugger all.

Of course, but we may not be.  We may have already seen what they have to offer and decided it's better for us to just take those first two picks to the draft.

If we're looking at a player, I'd say it'll come from the list of those younger guys coming out of contract at the end of next year, with Whitfield, Williams and Cameron taking big $ next year they might might have to offload someone like - Caldwell, Hately, O'Halloran, Perryman, Zac Langdon or Cumming, as they won't be able to keep them anyway. From that list the last 3 are all on more than rookie contracts so they'd be the most likely to move now to free up some cap, moving any of this years draftees won't help at all this year because there already on minimum payments. It's why they are trying to move on Bonar, he's contracted beyond his rookie contract but stuck behind a few.

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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
