How about a potato cake?

Crab stick even? (An aside but who eats crab sticks, they are disgusting but my wife could eat 10 in a sitting if I didn’t shame her so badly (not that there is anything wrong in publicly shaming my wife for her food choices)).

We're in the best position possible going into last day of trade period.

Two extremely valuable picks are on the table if the right offer pops up.

We'll be sitting back, cross-legged with cigar in mouth knowing that if nothing comes up, we go to the draft with two top 10 picks a year after making a prelim. 

Added to that is the fact that we've addressed a problem area with the additions of Langdon and to a lesser extent Tomlinson. No longer will we have to play inside midfielders on a wing. 

And this is all without mentioning the fact that we have a pre-season with Burgess coming up. One of the most highly respected fitness coaches around.

I'm putting a cheeky $20 on us for top 4 next year.

Dees.

This kind of optimism had no place in demonland. Are you a new supporter? ?

Only top 4? Where's your faith? Chuck a gremlin on us for the flag.

What about this from left field.

Offer Swans 8 for Papley and Tom McCartin.

That gets Daniher done. 5 & 8.

We then do 3 to GWS and get 6 and someone like Caldwell.

GWS get Green and whoever they want at 3 .

We fix small forward problem with Papley, key forward problem with McCartin and add pace/skill with Caldwell plus another good player with 6.

Well I can dream can't I?

Picked up Tomlinson and Langdon to fix our wing issues. Pick Green at 3 in the draft, force GWS to match bid which will leave us able to get 2 of Young, Ash, Sarong, Stevens or Kemp.

Only pick Green with 3 if he's worth pick 3. They may let him pass, with the knowledge that the rank of available draftees moves up a spot. 

However, if they do match a bid at 3 they'll use up pick 6, which means 8 moves up a spot.

Herald Sun reporter Jon Ralph told Fox Footy’s Trading Day that list managers had flagged to “watch this space in the next 24 hours” regarding Melbourne.

Very left field Bombshell; 

But I hear a whisper of secret dealings in the background.

Pick 3 & 2020 2nd round pick (Hawks) to GWS for Pick 6 and Whitfield (gives GWS salary cap space).

Angus Brayshaw (allows us to help pay for Whitfield & Papley) to Freo for Pick 10.

Pick 8 to Sydney for Papley.

OUT - Pick 3, Brayshaw and 2020 2nd rounder.

IN - Picks 6, 10, Whitfield & Papley.

Demons serious 2020 Premiership contender!

Sydney love McCartin and have him pegged either up forward or down back for the next decade. Will take a lot more than pick 8 for Papley and him.

If this was even a remote possibility, which it’s not, I’d go help Angus pack.

Yeah well we can't trade any other 2020 picks now we've traded our 1st rounder so you stumbled at the first hurdle.  More detention for you.

Anything is possible! But yes I am probably dreaming. ?

Whitfield had a very poor Grand Final playing wounded. He declared himself only 50-60% fit after the game. Quite selfish I think!

If I were GWS I would trade him. There going to have a Pick 3 & Tom Green (Top 5 rates) come in this year! 

Whitfield allows the Dees to mix up the wing and midfield positions. And we get that elite kick we are after...

Can we only trade one 2020 Pick?

If you trade your future first rounder you have to retain picks in the other rounds (we currently hold Hawks 2020 2nd round).

You can trade any or all of future 2nd round on, as long as you retain a 1st round.

This is to stop desperate clubs selling the future farm.

All I can say is, we better not be planning a big name trade, we better have it sorted ALREADY. If we don't use picks 3 and/or 8, or pick 8 in some combo to secure a needed gun, that has to be the stupidest trade of all time.  One first rounder for a first, second and third rounder. FFS.

I reckon it would be awesome for us to trade pick 3 for a second round pick and proclaim it is a sign that we will take risks and resort to unconventional means to improve.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
