Also i think we rate the ruckman Jackson and can get him in the top 10 as well as 2 other mids.

We traded ours out and kept Hawthorn’s second rounder for next year.

As much as I would like this to happen, I will believe this when I hear it from a second source, other than one Demonland member

I don’t. If we play our cards right we have picks 3 & 7 (GWS burn theirs on Green) currently. If we do the deal 7, 8 & 10 get pushed back by GWS/ Freo having live picks in addition to their academy picks

It would only push it back by 1 though? With GWS taking a pick before Greene and then Greene getting matched it would make our picks 8,9 and 11. 

Getting 2 picks in the top 10 is exactly what mahoney and co. wanted with this evenness of the draft, And we get 3 top 10 picks for this year which would be a huge boost for our young talent stocks. would be a win, win, win IMO

Plus you would think that Green would be bid on before 6, so we shouldn’t loose one place in the draft order, in that scenario anyway

I doubt GWS stay at 6 if we trade 3. I think GWS and potentially Freo get a bonus pick through this trade (Someone could bid on Henry before pick 7 which could burn Freo’s first pick).

Is there any guaranteed way of getting banned from this site until November 27?

@olisik can you offer me any advice?

Only need to have an opinion to get banned these days so shouldn’t be an issue. I got a warning point for calling Stretch and JKH champs. Go figure.

With Gold Coast today saying they’d be interested in swapping 15 and 20 for a 3rd top 10 pick, I wonder, if we really are planning on reaching for Weightman at 8, if we’d consider trading it for 15 and 20 ? and hope to still get Weightman at 15 and then getting a bonus pick with 20 ?

Absolutely not, we cant trade out a top 10 pick for 15 and 20.  we need to retain 2 top 10 picks at a minimum IMO.

If you can get the same player at 15 that you were going to take at 8 it would make sense tho?

 

I would rather keep 3 & 8 as well tho but just found it interesting that GC are looking to swap those pics.

We can live trade. so why don't we wait till the night, then when pick 7 goes and we see if the player we wanted at 8 is there. If he is then we don't swap, if he isn't then we consider the swap. But really it's not worth it relative to what we gave up to North to then swap with Gold coast. I.e. say we finish outside the 8 and get pick 9 next year. We traded 9, 26 and 50 for 8. To then give up 8 for 15 and 20 means we gave up 9, 26 and 50 for 15 and 20 😕 (and if we actually finish worse it's an awful trade lol).

Nup, one expected to go top 6 may slide and be available at 8. Take the best available

How about 8 for 10 and 22 from Freo with a promise to bid Green at 3 which takes out GWS pick 6.

Freo then have 7 and 8 and only have to worry about Adelaide and Sydney bidding on Henry - pretty safe I think.

Gives us 3, 10 and 22 - means we basically got Langdon for free.

Don't mind it but I want Kemp. So whatever we get in there that gets us him, would work for me.

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. 

At the time of this post, I didn't think that this was going to happen. But the more I've thought about it, the more it makes sense, and I now think that realistically, it may occur. Fingers crossed.

But Henry is regarded as a mid teen selection. Would Freo do the trade based on speculation that someone would use a much higher pick on him than expected?

Don't bring common sense into it, we have some on here who wanted us using pick 2 on himz before the Priority pick was allocated

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as
