What’s he worth in terms of a pick coming our way ?

Mid to late 2nd rd pick I’d say.

I feel a bit devastated about losing Frost. Why did we never offer a contract to him and why does he want to leave? 

I mean when Lever and May went down he was there. I thought he did a good job. Ok he may have turned the ball over a few times, but his pace was good and he was a long kick.

Sounds about right given he’s a future Brownlow Medalist.

This is cooked. 

 

In a slow team we’re letting genuine speed walk out the door.

For sure, didn’t think about that. Hell make it three first rounders!
 

PS For what it’s worth, I don’t want him to go

The hawks are really going down swinging. 

A crocked Patton and now Frosty. Topping up only works when you have when you have a talented core group

Hawks have pick 30ish. It will probably be that.

Close enough to his value. Would like it to be 5 picks earlier, but not going to happen.

He cost us an early second rounder, I'd say we'd get a second rounder back.  He's a better player now than when we acquired him.

He wanted to much money.

Hawks fans genuinely believig he’ll be a decent replacement for Frawley. Good luck to them, hope they have some decent heart medication

I reckon he has read the tea leaves that with a fit list he is not in our first team. 

He would get more money and a longer deal at hawks so fair enough leaving

Although it is 50/50 whether the door will be open as he tries to go through it! :D

I'm just being silly of course.  Frost leaving is unfortunate but such is life, this is not going to be some team-breaking disaster. As has been discussed, there are significant upsides and downsides to Frost. Whatever the flaws and even if he is at Hawthorn he'll retain my respect as a player who very often made extra efforts that mattered.

With the magic alternate universe that Hawthorn trades in, I wonder if we'll get more for him than GWS get for Patton?

Gunston would be a player we could look at in a trade.

We could look at him, but I doubt he would look at us.

26-year-old key position player. We are letting him walk out the door. I hope we know what we're doing.

If that’s what they’re offered I’d just say he goes into the draft and we pick him up again. For once using a bit of bargaining power melbourne! 

For me our defence works with him being in there with May and Lever fit. May takes big body #1, Frost takes big body #2, Lever floats as the interceptor, Nev small defender, Hibberd flanker #1, Salem flanker #2. 

Sell it to him Melbourne, make him feel wanted!

Utterly ludicrous we are letting him walk. A back 6 of May, Lever, Jetta, Hibberd, Hore, and Frost is solid af. Instead, we lose both Lewis and Frost in the offseason, bring in some outside wingers but now are resigned to playing a backline with little depth, and OMac or one of the Wagners automatically fitting into the side.

Goodwin and co. better have some chips up their sleeve because they appear to be going all in on Tomlinson and Langdon. We're now set to lose our second key position player in two offseasons. I just don't understand it.

Meanwhile the small forwards we are BEGGING for are choosing [censored] St Kilda, Bulldogs or Carlton over us. It's like we take two steps forward two steps back every year.

Five years ago we couldn't buy a decent midfielder. We had key forwards in Clarke, Howe, and some potential down back. Then we stacked ourselves with midfielders at the draft but suffered down back. Now we've stacked our backline, lost our best forward through no fault of our own, let a key position backman walk out, and bring in some wingers because we need outside pace. Meanwhile, nothing on the small forward front. I don't know what's going on.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    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. But unli

    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,
