Gaff or Andrew Brayshaw Rumour

 Is Petrucelle an out side mid?

 

Came through as a basketballer/athlete who was a bit of a 'see ball, get ball' type.  Could win the ball in the contest and do spectacular things, but needed to learn how to run in midfield, so probably would need to learn how to play as an outside mid. Has the speed to play the role, not sure on endurance at this stage.

WC used his pace well up forward, and may be reluctant to trade him with the Rioli suspension.

Liam Duggan may be an interesting one as part of a package for pick 3.

Ok thanks for that.

Don't know a whole lot about WC players, apart from Gaff.

You might find a family member might tell Freo Brayshaw he'll be the only Brayshaw on the list after 2020.

Would consider trading 3 for Cerra, Langdon and 26.

22 and 26 to GWS for pick 12

Far fetched but I would do it 

Apart from an excellent first name, what does Cerra, with an additional injury-riddled history, provide our list that fills a great need and diversifies our list? 

I'm sold on the GWS trade though.

Andrew Brayshaw was pick 2 and now has 50 odd games under his belt.

Out of interest why do people say he wouldn't be worth pick 3?

Thanks

Because we don’t need another inside tackling machine midfielder

Cerra is a very good decision maker and ball user. I think he will be a really good outside mid next season

I know you've liked him from his draft year. Has he transitioned to the top level how you expected?

I see he wants to play more midfield minutes next year...

Yes he's tracked as I expect not far away IMO, another pre season and he'll be a regular mid rotating of either HFF or HBF, his ball use and decision making sees him with ability to move to HBF and be important for transition

Didn't make it to us? We chose Spargo, Fritsch & Petty before him. He made it to us, we chose not to pick him. Furthermore, we took Baker at 48, so it gives some clue into the mindset of our club 2 years ago, that we valued outside speed as a 4th priority with only a late pick.

Edit: It might work out great though if the opportune pick of Petty at 38 becomes a mainstay and we address speed deficiencies elsewhere.

Apologies got that one well wrong . Though the Eagles took him low 20s tgat year

Scott Brother 1 is on record saying he can't see the trade happen ans that he'd expect 4 round one picks and a player to trade out Tim Kelly. Seems reasonable. 

He’s an absolute clown , also said Richmond were worse than last year 😆

Rumour starting to grow legs that Gaff could very well be traded this year. Not sure with whom or for what, just heard it's a genuine possibility.

This has been going around for a couple of weeks.  If there is any substance to this surely Geelong would want him as part of the Kelly deal, would still cost West Coast a pick as well say pick 24 and a swap of first round picks.

I have no idea and have zero inside info. But I have this funny feeling our pick 3 is a big factor in terms of other clubs wanting/needing it. West coast need something to land Kelly.

Would 3 and maybe a pick coming back get gaff? No need then to include Brayshaw in the mix.

I'm sorry, but Gaff just does not excite me. He doesn't take a lot of marks and he doesn't lay many tackles either.

And if we land Langdon, the need for him goes down even further.

Would 100% make sense for this to possibly relate to Geelong and/or our pick 3. Haven't heard anything about that though, just that it's a real possibility to happen.

It's sounding like Carlton are the club to get involved to help the Kelly deal to West coast. Carlton has pick 9 which you wouldn't think would work as a straight swap for Gaff but maybe with a bunch of other players/picks involved who knows. I'd imagine it might help Carlton get Papley to them as well....

Regardless it's sounding like it could maybe even end up a similar situation to the three to four team trade last year involving Melb/Freo/GC/Bris where Hogan, May, Neale and pick 3 were used to get players to clubs.

For the sake of team balance though, do you invest a top end pick in a guy that is very similar to what you've already got? i wouldn't be doing it unless we were considering trading out one of Angus or Viney. 

I'd rather just take pick 3 to the draft and pick up Lachie Ash. 

This seems like the lessor of the two evils for mine PO.  However, plenty of talent coming up.  A few alternatives to Ash  (not limited to these obviously)...

- Dylan Stephens?  Did quite well during the combine in the agility and 20m sprint.  Other than Noah Cumberland, no one else finished in the top 10 in both of the above.  Lovely left foot and not bad on the right also at this early stage.  Seems elusive in traffic and happy to roll out on either side.  Ability to shake down opponent in close and has break away speed.

- Some aerial X Factor via Serong or Bergman (1st in vertical jump, 2nd in running vertical jump)?  The latter on his day sounds like he can do the extraordinary.

- Hayden Young? ....who i must admit i know very little about other than some significant wraps on his kicking skills.  Came first in the agility test which is no mean feat.

Gaff, in my view, is precisely the player we need. Given his age i wouldn't give up pick three. But gaff and their first round pick (14?) might get the deal done?

Dazzle has got me sold on Hayden Young to be honest mate so i'm fairly happy with him, 

option B would be to send pick 3 to the Giants and try and get say Stephens at 11, Jeremy Sharp at 18 and Jye Caldwell as well, nice boost in depth.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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

    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

    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.

    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
