Are we done now?

Recommended Posts

Is this the end of our trade period?

With the acquisitions of Tomlinson & Langdon and the departure of Sam Frost I haven't heard our name being bandied about amongst any of the other tradable targets. (with the exception of Sam Murray as a delisted free agent).

So are we done now?

Feels like this is how we roll most years. We get our targeted deals done about 3/4s of the way through and then sit back and see if anything else comes up for us. Most times is seems like that's it, but never know. Gut feel is we'll do the pick 3 split, but might not get anymore player trades done.

I’d put good money on us not going into the draft with pick 3.

Agreed Beets, 

We've got Langdon, Tomlinson and still a pick in each of the first three rounds

for Frost

I think Mahoney can't sit back comfortably and wait for teams to come to us.

I wonder if we’re genuinely sniffing around or if this is just Trade Radio needing to fill the hours.

Does anyone have an updated list? Considering 3 picks in the draft, how many spots are left to be filled?

I'm still holding out hope for something in the forward half to eventuate.

No idea if we're done or not, but so far:

  • The in's; Tomlinson, Langdon, pick 26, Pick 50, R2 2020, R4 2020,
  • The out's; Frost, Pick 22, Pick 42, Pick 61, Pick 79, R2 2020, R4 2020

Net effect:

Ins:

  • Tomlinson
  • Langdon
  • Pick 26
  • Pick 50

Outs:

  • Frost
  • Pick 22,
  • Pick 42,
  • Pick 61
  • Pick 79

4 in, 5 out. Maybe splitting pick 3 will be the balancing item?

Forgot about pick 79

My understanding is If we take the minimum 3 from the draft we have no senior list spots available. Therefore if we want to get anyone else in or take an extra draftee, we will have to trade or de-list either Stretch or JKH who are currently out of contract.

Thanks HBG. I reckon that means we're not officially done yet. We've kept those 2 spots up our sleeve in case something else comes up.

So am I FTB but don't hold your breath Good KPF's are rare beasts.

I think we will have to go into next season with the NQR's that we used in 2019.

5 spots available:  4 Out: Garlett, Maynard, Lewis, Frost plus 1 unused list spot from 2019.

2 spots taken:  Tomlinson, Langdon.

3 spots available for draftees or more recruits.

Stretch and JKH OOC and still unsigned so potential for more list spots.

Will shortly update the Contracts thread pinned to front page of this forum.

If anyone has the length of Langdon's contract please let me know.

When asked about the Frost trade he said they looked at it and Langdon as a package and said "keeping our draft hand was important for what we want to do during the trade period"

Sounds to me like we're not finished yet

would be good to have a list of who they are (as they become known)and when is the PSD draft.

Seems that Murray is possibly the pick of the bunch for a one year contract but I must confess to knowing little about who is available.

    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

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
