“Insert angry post about us getting bent over and taking pick 97 for Frost and Clarkson turning him into the best wingman in the comp here”

And then mention O-Mac.

I swear, if I see another (nearly identical) post about letting go of Frost and keeping Omac... We get it! You're not the first person to get angry about the potential trade and post it. In fact, you're not even the 500000th person to complain!

Frost is absolutely 100% out the door. He wants to stay, MFC don't want him. 

There was an interview with Josh Mahoney  a few days ago on one of these threads from Trade Radio or SEN, can't remember where, but he basically said it without saying it. If you know what I mean.

Yep. I heard it. Talked Frost down basically saying he did well but we had a lot of players out. Something along those lines. Didn’t sound like there was an option for Frost to stay.

Yes i saw that. But nothing is 100% till papers are signed..

At this point Frosty is still in the Red and Blue Corner, terms have to be right before he goes

I have seen this too, trying to find something solid. 

Frosty is in Nashville right now with Max and James Harmes. All smiles

You mean your reliable source hasn't got you to witness the contract? 

I'm shocked.

I don’t think the Hawks are low-balling us. Take into consideration that we haven’t offered Frost a new contract and Mahoney coming out and saying we were happy for him to talk to other clubs. Nothing about him being a required player. 

From the outside he looks like an un-wanted player and certainly not worth the second round pick we’d all like.

Yeah those 11 disposals 4 tackles and 2 goals were definitely looked at seriously as a potential Norm Smith winner 🤦‍♂️

Fmd some people are really simple.

From the looks of it, we aren’t expecting much. We just don’t want him and are happy for another club to take him. It’ll get done whenever the clubs want.

oMac is contracted Frost is not. That's about the only difference in the club's position on the 2.

That being said, frost is a far superior player. Omac is not.

What would the Hawks give us?

Hawks have Pick 11,30,50,87.

Pick 30 is about right I think , 50 is Unders of the back of his 2019.

This is where Mahoney and co need to be smarter when discussing our own players during trade week. Talk them up even if you don't rate them helps drive up the price. We suck at this

I agree, it's a game of poker and Mahoney appears to have the worst poker face of all. Should be talking him up, saying things like he still has a future at Melbourne. 

I feel like we're going to end up with pick 50 or maybe an exchange of picks. 30 is for me too high for him, 50 (should be) unders for him. If they get access to a pick in the mid/late 30s or early 40s I think that would be about right.

Right, because opposition recruiters base their player ratings on a few puff pieces in the press during trade week.

The only thing that might have driven up the price on Frost would have been fewer turnovers and goals out the back, but it's a bit late for that now.

Frost deal getting close and could be done tomorrow.

Most likely we want 30, as does GWS, for Patton.

That is probably the hold up.

Something ain't right with this. Why trade a bloke with X factor for a nothing pick? Goodwin doesn't back himself or his assistants to coach Frosty into becoming a more reliable team player? Frost has priced himself too highly for our salary cap? Or is it something else? If he does go to the Hawks, I bet you he becomes a much better footballer under the tutelage of Clarko and we'll be kicking ourselves.

Asked and answered multiple times. Nothing wrong about it.

    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
