We keep Hibberd and Omac and move Frost on. 

It doesn’t feel right to me, unless Burgess can make a new player out of Omac

we have to wait and see. Jobs are on the line, so it won’t take long to evolve

Well there you go. Time to log off until march....

I would like to think Mahoney is simply putting out there what is widely known. I wouldn't be surprised to know we're targeting a few others. And we'd want to but that may come out in the splitting of pick 3.

I'm sure we would have enquired about some support for Tom up forward, though it doesn't seem like there is a huge amount on the market this year.

Interested in Tomlinson "if he wants to leave GWS" judging by that article someone posted on the Tomlinson thread he is desperate to stay there. Seems like he'll be pushed out because of cap pressure. Wonder how it goes getting a player who is shattered he's been forced to leave.

I keep forgetting about Hore in the conversation around Frost leaving. We seem to focus on O Mac being a more direct replacement. I'd take Hore over Frost any day. I wouldn't take O Mac. In the balance of the backline if May and Lever play I don't see O Mac playing and with a fully fit backline I would think Hore would get a game ahead of Frost. 

I reckon Elliot's main reason for leaving Pies would be Stephenson and Thomas are ahead of him for the same position. He might get a year more and a bit of cash more from us but I reckon that could be the biggest driver. I still be very surprised if he leaves. 

A third club has entered the picture on Martin. Wonder if it's us. What do people think about him. I reckon he's got a great package but hasn't delivered. Too easily pushed off out of the contest. But great skills and good outside run. GC want a first rounder. I guess if we split pick 3 and gave them a later one it might work. Can't see how Carlton will get Papley and him. Don't think GC will want future picks.

Losing Frost doesn't overly concern me

Losing Frost's leg speed from a team that seems to have absolutely none, worries me greatly

Bernie Vince was openly shattered he was forced out of Adelaide.  Went on to win a Best and Fairest.

So pretty much we're a lock to get Tomlinson and Langdon and are up in the air in terms of Elliott 

We'll lose Frost and Stretch to Hawthorn and Gold Coast and delist JKH

Reading between the lines the right package could definitely entice us to shuffle pick 3

 Mahoney, Re Frost. Little merit given to Frosty 2019 performances cause we got Hore and Omac and overpaid for Lever and May. pathetic.

as a club i love that we don't leak anymore like we used to do

all he's doing is confirming everything that's been speculated in the media, and he's pretty circumspect about all of that too

Just because someone can run fast means nothing. Some of the best teams over past years do not have quick runners but control and pass the ball correctly to their own team mates which then makes them all look quick.

You don't need fast runners (well maybe 1 or 2 guys that have some semblance of pace) if you have a team of players that can control the ball and make space and make the right decisions and don't just bomb it to a contest every time.

Leg speed....have a listen to Brendan McArtney's interview on SEN.  (it is on DL somewwhere) I found it really interesting regarding his insight into how a team can appear to be slow or fast. 

By way of example he was saying that if the team is losing the contested ball the outside players tend to wait around to assist whereas when the team are playing like we did in 2018 the outsides can leave the contest sooner giving them greater space to work in.  I had never thought of it like that before and found it particularly interesting.

* Dees been active throughout the year in preparation for Trade Week.

* Want to add outside run (Tomlinson & Langdon) to play on the wing.

* Re: Sam Frost - great year but

* Re: Pick 3 - haven't had a first round in years. good quality in top 10. would look at deal with pick 3 to split pick.

* Re: Jamie Elliott - 3 year deal offered to him personally.

* Angus Brayshaw staying at the Dees.

* Alan Richardson hasn't officially started but has been at the club every day.

* Only coaching changes so far are Richo & Radford (Casey) and the ones that have know have left. No other changes so far. Sounded as if no other changes would be made which is strange.

* Captaincy will be decided in preseason. No decision on sole or dual yet.

* Tomlinson announcement should be early next week. Langdon still has to officially request trade to Melbourne but sounds like that will happen.

Yes Frost is fast and will burst out of D50 but how many times does he turn the ball over? 

Pretty much every time Frost decides on doing some Frostball and [censored] it up it leaves us outnumbered in defense. 

Petty still developing, will be a better option moving forward, who really wants to pay 500K plus for a player that other need to pick up the slack defensively because he cannot execute the basic fundamentals?

yes but we had nobody who could do that last year so what will magically change?

That's not what was said. Don't understand why Dees fans do whatever they can to try and attack Lyon.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    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
