GWS 1st rounder next year may well be in the late 20s after all the bidding is matched. We should think of the pick number rather than 1st or 2nd round I'd rather 3 for 6 + Caldwell or O'Halloran

If we can leave Bonar out of this and get someone of the type we need instead (or a suitable pick) it would be so much better.

Surely we have some sort of deal already worked out with GWS, otherwise what was the point of them moving down to pick 6.

How about a draft night trade...

picks 3 and 8 to Gold Coast for pick 2 and a later pick

We draft Noah Anderson and all is well.

I’d love Anderson, but considering GC’s main argument for being given pick 2 was to pick Anderson, who is good mates with Rowell, can’t see it happening.

The reality is that GWS has apparently  offered us Pick 6 and their 2020 first rounder for Pick 3.

This effectively gives them two top five selections while we go down three places in the draft order with Pick 6 and could possibly get a pick in the late teens in what looms as a highly compromised draft next year. 

If we were to accept that offer, we would be royally screwed over and our recruiting people would deserve our contempt.

GWS need to work a lot harder, otherwise we take 3 and 8 into the draft or simply split our picks with someone else.

Stuff, gws, why in the hell should we help them?

If our club caves into them, then they should be sacked.

I was all for splitting the pick if gws offered a player up in the trade, but they didn't, so case of bad luck.

If any one at the club reads this DO NOT GIVE UP OUR PICK 3.

What if we can get the same player we ideally want anyway at #6? Or if we don’t have a strong preference between the draft class?

With all the academy selections next year, teams with these selections will need to trade for later picks as points.

I say we take 6, the 1st rounder and a handful of later picks for next year, which we’ll be able to parlay into something of more substance.

We arent trading pick 3 for GWS and their 2020 1st rounder.

Mahoney has made it clear with the North trade he doesnt rate the 2020 draft, which is also the most compromised in history.

GWS 1st rounder in 2020 will be more like a pick 25-30 in a normal draft.

Thank goodness🙂

I’ve changed my mind on splitting pick 3. Now think we should just take best available at pick 3.                                    Also think we should do full due dillegence on Freo academy player Henry for pick 8 and let out interest be known. He is rated as best small forward in most draft articles. He may be a good option for us but even if he’s not it would be no harm to have Freo concerned that we may take him before their pick 10 and in effect  cost them a top 10 pick. Freo will also be concerned Carlton may pick Henry  

Then come draft night, depending on how things fall we could always try to split pick 8 for pick 10 and 22 if we know we can get player we are after at 10. Perhaps a goal scoring mid or small forward. Which ever type we miss out on we can go for at 22. Which means we could get half back in Young at 3 handy midfielder like Stephens or Robertson at 10 and small forward like Taylor at 22  

If things don’t fall our way we just use pick 8 on player we want.

GWS need to get serious. Pick 6 and next years first rounder is a joke. We have pick 3 and they need it otherwise they are going to be using pick 6 on Greene. Our pick 3 is valuable and they will need to offer up a hell of a lot more than anything I have seen them offer so far. They need to convince us to part with pick 3 and so far they are doing a terrible job. But its in their best interests to get serious and offer overs. And they will.

I don’t think GWS have the currency to do a deal that would sate us. Them getting Green and another top 10 this year won’t happen, as a result. 


And that’s only a good thing.

They will have to live trade themselves into something that may tempt us then. Otherwise they will have to use their first round pick on Greene, which would only be down to laziness on their part not to come up with a tempting deal for us. I suspect they will. It would be a failure for them to have to use pick 6 on Greene.

I heard not long ago that pick 3 will head west to Freo, leaving us with 7,8 & 10. 3 picks inside the top 10. 

Cue.. who's your source and all that, but thats from someone who would have a good idea.

7 & 10 for 3 seems like massive overs, surely Big Bell wouldn’t allow that

Not really when we indicate that we would bid on Henry at 8 (as the small fwd we are after) meaning they would loose 10 as a result. If freo did this they would get the pick of the players at 3 ( instead of whats left at 7) and Henry with later picks.

yeah its good for us, but who knows what they might do with 3, they might then split it with GWS.. all i got told is that Freo are right in the mix to deal with us for pick 3.

If true, this would be the ideal result for us. But I agree, I don't think that Bell would go for it, unless we threw in next years 2nd or similar, to make the trade look better on paper.

Also, I doubt this is true to start with, as I heard Henry will not be bid on till 10-15

we can't trade next years 2nd because we don't have a 1st (unless we can get another 2nd before 2020 nd)

Just tell them we’ll do it but only 30 seconds before deadline so they can’t ontrade.

Would it be fair for all clubs if it went 

Melb: Out: 3 In: 7, 10

Freo: Out: 7, 10 In: 6, GWS future 1st

GWS: Out: 6, Future 1st In: 3 

If we are going to bid on Henry at 8 then Freo lose 10 anyway so they would be upgrading their First pick by 1, getting a future first and therefore not having to 'lose' a pick on Henry.

Yep that is what i was thinking. having 3 picks inside the top 10 would be a wonderful result, keeping in mind we wouldn't have a 1st rounder next year, but a second rounder which after academy and FS selections, wouldn't be that much different.

I'm not sure if I'm right about this, but is it ok to trade the 2nd, because it came from the Hawks?

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
