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

It's not just 3 spots in the draft for them it's the chance to get 2 top 5 picks. 

27 and a GWS future first is probably worth about pick 12. We paid a lot more (given our likely ladder finish) to North for pick 8. 12 and 6 for 3 is about right.

6 and a future first isn't enough, has to be at least another 2nd round pick.

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.

And 2020 First Rounder

If GWS can't come up with a better deal with pick 6 and next years first rounder, then we should just keep pick 3 and bid on Greene. Next years draft will be compromised so their first rounder will be most likely 15-20. We need more than that offer. I would ask for an additional pick to add to 6 and next years first rounder.

i would doubt that we're keen on a player at this point in time

we very well might end with 3 and 8 at the end of the day but by draft night have a completely different outcome

The entire discussion is based on who we want at pick 3. if our number one choice is likely to make it to 6 then anything else is a bonus. but that doesn't mean we shouldn't play hardball. 

I have a funny feeling we'd be keen on Serong over young, just because he can fill the small forward role and rotate through the midfield.

I'm worried if we give up 3 we lose out on Caleb Serong, who will go 4 or 5. He's a very good footballer. I suppose at 6 we could get Sam Flanders as a similar type player, then Weightman at 8 which is a bit overs for him IMO.

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

Think back to the Hogan trade with GWS.
We gave up more than seemed fair at the time, but in the end we were paying GWS more to make sure they didn't bid on Viney.
If they bid on JV we'd have lost the ability to use pick 4 on another player, so the trade had more intrinsic value to us.

The reverse is happening here with slightly different rules, but the precedent is relevant.

Agreed. for them it's potentially Serong and Green vs Green and no other pics. 

i can see exactly why they're so desperate to do that deal.

Pick 3 for 6 + Caldwell or O'Halloran

NOT 3 for 6 + 2020 1st rounder

GWS want pick 3 and Green with late trash picks, then cough the [censored] up! Otherwise it's Green at 6 only.

Play hard Dees.

100% agree.
We didn't do all this work, and aren't willing to greatly assist (a top-4 rival in) GWS, just to get back a late first rounder next year. 

I also like the idea of North giving our 2nd rounder to GWS for Bonar, then GWS giving it back to us.

Bonar isn’t going to North. Maybe Essendon, which would be 31 or 33.

Nothing wrong with hitting the draft with pick 3 and 8. infact it's a great position. 

i'm sure GWS understand that and we're silly if we aren't demanding a best 22 player along with pick 6 for pick 3. 

we need a deal that improves our side for 2020 for this to be worth it.

Geez if we do 6 and 2020 first rounder demonland will go into meltdown. (Me included). 

Hope it doesn’t happen. Not for that scenario anyway.

Agree. 

Mahoney and co. would've been bent over. 

I have liked their trade period up until now, but this was our chance to play serious hardball and get a gun player.

F**k a late first round pick next year. What a joke.

This. 

If we do this it ruins our trade period imo and undoes all the good work to date this year. 

We need to stay firm and get more for  the pic.

We can trade pic 3 right up to trade night so no need for us to jump at GWS offer. 

Sit back and see if the return increases as we would be in no rush.

I think assuming it's picks only.

i'd be telling them if they can add a pick of 13 or better to add with 6 i'd do it. 

if we can get Weightman at 13 and say Ash and Stephens at 6 and 8 that'd be a good overall result.

No need to after today.  Would only want to swap if we garner a gun player off them with pick 6 and that opp finishes this evening Ox.

To have 6,8 and 13 wouldn’t be bad. Would also push for a future pic just to see if we can squeeze some more out of it. 

We don’t know how desperate gws are.

I suspect they're pretty keen. 

maybe if they did a deal with the Suns for pick 15. we could get thier pick 40 odd as well.

Hoping for pick 6 + a good player before the deadline. Pick swap shouldn't satisfy us IMO.

    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
