Anyone heard? Tom/Tom

Recommended Posts

2 Collingwood Tom’s might be available.

Tom Langdon & Tom Phillips

No offical source on this one. It is something like my uncles, best friends brother told me.

Might be an interesting 24hrs.

Interesting. Would certainly change the face of our team a bit with Langdon and Phillips off half back, and Langdon and Tomlinson on the wings. Means Salem could push into the midfield and we could play a more mobile defensive zone.

Magpies cap squeeze casualties apparently.

First round pick goes to Collingwood. Two Tom’s and a 4th comes back to us was the hot tip.

If Mahoney can pull that off he deserves a statue at the G.

Couldn't play Phillips at half back, he's a butcher when not free running and making easy decisions, if anything I think Ed Langdon and Phillips would rotate wing and half forward in the ANB role. Tom Langdon another poor kick, his best work is his intercepting and lock down ability, would be a handy Frost replacement and could reduce the need to play another tall alongside May and Lever. The only way to move Salem is to find better kicks to replace him not worse!

But I don't think either are seriously available this year.

I think the Pies will deal Aish and Scharenberg and try to win the flag this year before moving guys like these 2 on next year to free salary cap space. Trading away best 22 players early doesn't make sense to me. I'd certainly be adding Tom Langdon to the list of Pies to target next year.

Collingwood may accept picks 3 and 8 if we talk nicely to them and maybe throw in a sweetener.

Disagree on the kicking. It depends on the system we are trying to play.

Langdon as an interceptor playing at half back is absolutely on the cards if we were to go him. 

Likewise, Phillips can certainly play half back run and gun. 

They may not be available, but it's not the first time I've heard that they are.

Horrible deal! 

Why would you trade a tip 10 pick for 2 B graders

I'll put it another way, if we wanted Phillips to play half back we may as well just get Sam Murray for free and get the same result. Tom Langdon can play half back but we have Jake Lever (and Hore as back up), he'd be excellent for our backline in a variety of roles but he's not replacing Salem as the efficient kicker every team needs. There's no system of play that doesn't require a good kicker at half back. 

I'm sure every Collingwood player was somewhat on the table given their salary cap pressures next year but if they've found homes for guys like Scharenberg and Aish who are at best fringe 22 they'll move them first. 

The Tom's would be on the table for a price and it's not a price I want to pay. Nor can I understand why we'd trade out the 2nd and 3rd round picks that could form the basis of a deal (along with future 2nd/3rd rounders) to get pick 8.

    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

    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
