Quite frankly, I’m happy for him to sell it.

We simply cannot have another season like this year’s.

Despite finishing 17th, we are (ironically) in the premiership window right now, and we have to go for it - full bore.

Great move - Josh Mahoney is a gun at trading picks IMO.

I love it.

 

He’s a Gun at throwing out valuable second rounders for nothing.

Just out of interest, what was the last positive thing you think Melbourne did?

We hung onto pick 3!! Before that many "Armagedon" moments were the order of the day IMV

Pick 3 to the Giants for Jeremy Finlayson and pick 6 

Pick 8 to the Hawks for Issac Smith and pick 11 

pick 6 we draft Lachie Ash and get some genuine speed 

pick 11 we draft Cody Weightman, small forward with genuine skills and x-factor

overall a terrific trade period.

If GWS don’t come to the table, they effectively “lose” their high 1st round pick on Green (which they could use later picks on). Do a deal with us then they use pick 3 on the player they want and later picks on Green, effectively 2 top 5 picks for pick 3, later picks and whatever they pay us.

Lachie Ash is Jayden Hunt 2.0. Runs away and boots it to no one . Would be a shocking choice at 6.

I'm worried if we give up 3 we lose Caleb Serong, who will go 4 or 5. He's a very good footballer. I suppose at 6 we could get Sam Flanders as a similar type player, then Weightman at 8 which is a bit overs for him IMO.

Rubbish. he's a good kick, shown great leadership, reads the play well and is consistent in his position. you should probably know what you're talking about before you plot players because you clearly have not seen him play.

Have you seen his highlight reel? Almost all his kicks are OOTF/to an opposition player or smothered. Just ran and booted it Into no mans land like Jayden Hunt does.

Not a player I would want to spend a top 10 on.

It's because he tries to kick when running at full speed under pressure. a very easy thing to address and fix up. if that's the worst problem he has he's in a very good position.

Nice PO.  A slight variation?...

👉🏼 Pick 3 - same deal 👌🏼

👉🏼 Pick 8 - to Hawks for Smith, 11 & 42

👉🏼 42 to Adelaide for Jenkins & peanuts ($300k to ensure the Cats have to at least pay a tad more if they want him...yeh what's up pussycat!).

👉🏼 Pick 6 - Stephens (speed, silk & finish!)

👉🏼 Pick 11 - Weightman (small forward with rising star potential).

👉🏼 3rd draft pick (Rookie as delisted FA?) - Harley Bennell

At the end of the day, we are giving away pick 3, the third best young talent in the country.

That's a lot for mine, we better be asking for plenty back in return.

No complaints for me. 

greatly increase our speed and class on the outside

address small forward need 

re-enforce key targets forward 

build on young core

add on field experience and leadership

all major areas of list concern addressed is a success in anyones books. 

don't mind the idea of offering up the future second to the Crows for a last minute hail mary at Alex Keith potentially.

If the rumour of us knocking back the GWS offer of Pick 6 and a future first is true, then I'd say that's a fair indication of us playing hard ball for the pick.

Need to agree to disagree. Hunt has spent years and still does it.

i am in the Stephens camp for pick 6. Dead-set gun. His highlight reel is up there with Oliver’s.

Fortunately the guys who make these decisions don't do so based on highlight reels.

Stephens is a good player though

i'd also be happy with Flanders

Not sure if this has been floated, but what if GWS offered 6 + 40 (Tomlinson compensation) + 2020 1st for Selection 3?

I think it should be a player like most here, but if there is no possibility of getting a player what would it take? 

I wouldn't do that. We probably don't even need pick 40 this year. GWS 2020 first selection is diluted so it won't help us much either. The value needs to be closer to what GWS will receive out of the deal from a net perspective. In effect if we help them out GWS are going to draft 2 top 5 rated players from this draft, they better be willing to offer up something better than that IMV.

I'm with Bonkers. That deal is pants and would rather go to the draft.

Unless we can realise a net gain equal to if not better than what GWS stand to reap they can G.A.G.F......

    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

    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
