Seriously?  Papley has become Cyril Rioli during this trade period!  Good player and certainly has pace and skill which we lack but he's not worth a top 10 pick.

Points wise, 12 and 18 are worth slightly more than pick 3 I believe.

After academy selections, gws, freo Rated around or before pick 12 and possibly the hawthorn academy selection you would be looking at pick 14 and pick 21 for pick 3. They would be in deficit. 
Don’t know much about this draft but certain commentators who do say the talent tiers go top 2, top 8, top 30. GWS list manager recently came out suggesting their pick dropping back will make it harder to trade up now, they know they will now have to give up more.

I agree.  I'm not advocating we do it, but obviously Papley is open to the idea of playing for other clubs, so it might be an opportunity for us to sneak under the radar and get involved in the deal.

There's too many moving pieces to try and say that's what will happen though. With bids being matched or not, with the AFL bringing in new 'rules' about parking and trading picks, the leftover points deficit etc. Whatever happens, I still think us splitting the pick is a high possibility, and given our needs and Papley's 'uncertainty' it's a deal we could pursue.

Trade pick 3 for GWS 12 and 18, then use pick 12 for Papley, 18 in the draft.

(Should we be able to convince him to come to us)

 

I just reckon pick 3 is worth more than 12 & 18. i think we would need at least to stay in the top 10 for one of the picks.

Feels like it doesn't it? But points wise, 12 & 18 is worth more than 3 (by a little bit).

Yeah it does and i guess its where the points thing make sit a bit more complicated (im no expert in that field) , i just reckon on face value pick 3 should get you a pick in the top 10.. not sure how that happens. I tend to think we will split the pick now that we missed out on Elliott.

I'm surprised the AFL hasn't forced us to change our name to avoid this type of confussion.

The Goschs Demons has a nice ring to it.

Back on topic. I really don't know much about Papley but here are some of his first half of 2019 highlights.

Interesting how now that we’ve missed out on Elliott, Papley isn’t just looking at Carlton. 

Is his nickname Basil?

Would be a better option than Elliott.

Younger, healthier, and his 37 goals (2019 season) as a 22 year old is more than Elliott's best haul of 35.

If we managed to land Papley and get pick around 9-12 back, it would be the best trade week that I could recall us ever having.

3 and 30 (Frost) for Papley and 9

No chance Hawthorn are giving us pick 30 for Frost.

Hawthorn didn't win premiership after premiership by trading second round draft picks for ordinary players. 

We'll get Frost for a third round at best, but I wouldn't be surprised if Hawthorn offer us a 4th rounder given we low balled Frost.

Minor correction in that he is 23 but still, he is younger than I thought he was.

He will still more than likely get to Carlton, but I'd love for us to get involved.  He is just the sort of player we need.

Agreed but I don’t think Sydney will be keen on giving a first round pick back. If they really want Daniher Essendon will want two first round picks. I still think splitting the pick will get the job done. I’m quietly confident we can land Basil Papley.

If we get Tomlinson, Langdon, Papley and still have a pick in the first round we’ve done very well.

As one of the best small forwards in the game we need to be in the hunt. Our delivery into the forward 50 this year was terrible. We need a player who can capitalise on spilt balls in the forward 50. Whether it’s Papley, Taylor or Butler I dunno. 
 

Hannan will be better injury free, Spargo too panicked, Dunkley/ Lochart still developing.

Yep sorry realised that after I posted

Definitely would need to remain in the top 12ish in the draft is we're giving up pick 3 for Papley. Maybe Sydney split pick 5 with GWS and give us say Papley and 11 (GWS) for pick 3 and 40

Then maybe they trade pick 3 and a second rounder to Essendon for Daniher? Just a thought 

They end up essentially trading Papley and pick 5 for Daniher and pick 18

    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

    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
