Are we done now?

Recommended Posts

Give sam Murray a go. Nothing to lose. 

Also would like to see what small forward we could get but based on JM trade radio we aren’t looking at one cause the forward line was good in 2018 and they HOPE it will work again in 2020. That’s scary.

would you trade for Murray (pick 96 or whatever exchanged for pick 102) or wait for the PSD? Cannot see the difference but perhaps there is some reason.

Agree on the small forward but I suspect his comment was reflective of there being no one available. Sounds a little silly though given we were after Elliot. Ah.. the world of spin.

Are we done?

Lefty, let me introduce you to my mate Josh. With pick 3, next year’s first, and 26 still live, he laughs at the idea we might be done.

Lefty, Josh. Josh, Lefty. :mahoney:

There is still plenty of time left to get involved in a few deals.  There is also plenty of time left for something to crop up out of left field - teams scrambling to fit under the salary cap or looking to improve their hand at the draft.  We can sit and wait for a good deal to arise... or go to the draft with what we have.  It's a win/win.

Going by what Mahoney is saying, we are not finished.

I must have heard another interview then. Sounded like we were.

Didn't sound like either, it was the one question Kane and Terry didn't ask!

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.

5 years for Langdon

I heard that while i was riding my bike almost fell off when talking about the forward line.

Going by JM we are done, unless they are contemplating still splitting pick 3.

I would definitely trade for Murray but he has been delisted so I don’t think there is any need to trade. 

Spin along with lies is the biggest thing during trade.

You would hope we are still looking for a small forward but we r Melbourne so most likely not.

What about rookie spots? Aren't they all included in the same list now? (Can't remember what the exact changes were)

Smith and Walker gone as far as rookies go.

understand but if you do a no lose trade then you keep your options open for the other delists whom we don't know about.

Is he actually "delisted" as at today? I assume he has just been informed that no contract will be offered as formally his contract runs for a few weeks yet.

I like the way we have performed in this trade period. The recruiters have obviously done their ground work on both Tomlinson and Langdon over the past 12/18 months and they got the trades done with a minimum of fuss. I think these two have improved our list despite the loss of Frost. 

No idea if we will move on any other players this trade period but I could see that once the dust has settled and the draft starts, if we still have pick 3, we might trade that at the beginning of the draft if there is a deal to do with a club that has a couple of later first round picks.

Smith and Kielty delisted, Walker (cat B) retired.

Rookie A list: Lockhart, Dunkley, C Wagner, Chandler
Rookie B: Bradtke

So if Stretch and JKH go we've then got 5 spots and can use them in any combination of 3 main, 2 rookies or 4/1 or 5/0. 

My guess is we'd take 4 draft picks and then have someone prelisted (Murray) similar to Corey Wagner or train on for the last rookie spot.

I'd imagine we look for another Cat B player as well depending on club finances and who's available. I like the idea of adding an Irishman.

Think we are still keen on it. In Mahoneys trade radio interview he mentioned it was important we maintained our draft position, both this year and next, as part of todays trades to set up for the remaining period of the trade period.

Richmond are giving away Dan Butler for a late pick. Carton & Saints in the running. Carlton have now pulled out because of the Papley trade. With Garlett delisted why not go for Butler until we have other small forward options available.

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.

I honestly thought we’d already delisted JKH, the club could seriously not see anything in him beyond the season just gone.

Article says he is delisted.

I wonder if we threw Stretch and pick three at GC for a player and a later first round pick, who would we be able to get?  I know there were rumours around Stretch going there.  A drop from third to fifteenth should warrant a pretty good player.  Maybe convince Martin that his future is with us?

Happy to offer Murray a rookie spot. See if he really want to work hard and earn his career back. 

Weve already had a great trade period. Tomlinson and Langdon fir frost and late picks. Addressed our needs. 

And we have pick 3 to hopefully get a gun

Hoping for one more snag, maybe Yokozuna’s mail comes to fruition about an exciting forward prospect. 

Interestingly, a few player managers were interviewed on radio leading up to trade week and they predicted this trade period could see a record number of players switching clubs. Unless they extend it until March can’t see this happening so far.

    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.

    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,
