Footy is finally back, and this is what we're discussing?

None of this will happen

If you look at Port Adelaide, they've been nowhere for a long time. They may well win a flag this year. They had a superb 2018 draft by nailing three of their top 20 picks, but the key to their s

  • Demonland changed the title to TRADES, DELIST, PROMOTE

Sparrow and Petty will never be moved on. They are two of the very few young players on our list with the potential to be very good long term players.

The delist column will be much longer if the AFL are able to reduce list sizes. Not sure why either Chandler or Dunkley would get a third year on the rookie list.

I reckon its more likely that the Crows will be interested in Sparrow and Petty than Port.

if they're rebuilding it might suit them to come looking for a couple of SA boys who have been developing in the system for a couple of years already but are yet to get any sort of decent crack at it. they could pick up an inside mid and a key tall who are both ready to play and speed up their rebuild.

Adelaide will be near the bottom they won't give pick 3 or 4 for Sparrow and Petty. Port may have pick 11 or 12. If we can get a pick like that for a kid that won't get a game in our midfield and an injury prone tall I would take it.

SPARROW AND PETTY FOR PORT'S FIRST RND PICK.

________________________________________________________________

Werridee, why would anyone think Port would give up a first round pick for these two? 

P.S. And stop shouting!!

we wont be getting a first round pick from anyone for them. I think you're over rating their value.

Sparrow was a mid second round pick who has played two games. there's plenty of midfielders in the draft, he's not worth that much on the trade table. and Petty was a late second rounder who has played more games but has been moved around back and forward and hasn't really done that much to date. combined you'd probably be lucky to get a second round pick and a half decent player back.

So much is going to change before the end of the year, impossible to get a read. 

whats i would say is 

Weideman, Oscar, ANB, Spargo,  in particular need to step up and cement a spot or they're a chance to be moved on at years end

In terms of trade targets, Darcy Tucker from Freo across half back is the type of player we need. Seen him a few times now and like his style. Tough kid. Great footskills and accurate delivery. Hopefully we might get in his ear for a return to VIC. 

OK.   I haven't watched him play.

Does he have any speed.?  endurance.?   What else can you tell us.?   Skills for other positions.?

Tough halfback or mid. Signed at Freo until end 2021. Elite disposal. He will be 24yo next year so will look at min.3 year contract. We need elite disposal and toughness. Hard to find imo. “Warriors only need apply”

it's literally two games into the season so a titch early in this crazy year but this is the sort of stuff i love pondering...so i'll play

firstly, i would rather get hogan back than daniher - at least one of them can get on the park, even if he looked horrible tonight

who has potential value and best 22 possibilities at other clubs but MIGHT be excess on our list? i'd say there's only a few players that have genuine value on our list that i would be comfortable parting with:

  • viney (free agency compensation)
  • brayshaw
  • preuss (crazy that he has value, but ruckmen always seem to find a home)
  • hunt
  • anb

personally i would say it's either viney OR brayshaw as inside mids, and hunt OR anb as forward options

who needs inside mids? carlton, essendon, fremantle, geelong (regeneration), saints maybe

brayshaw, ollie wines, the crouch bros. could all be inside mids looking for new homes in 2021 - get a first rounder for gus from any of the above clubs and my jaw would hit the ground; i struggle with what he's worth cos sometimes he plays and i think he's worth less than a third rounder on the trade table

who needs small pressure forwards? well, pretty much anyone other than st. kilda and the tigers, who seem to have a heap of small forward types, want depth in this position and hunt has a real bonus of speed in his arsenal

given that anb is an sa boy, i personally think he'd slot in nicely at the crows - if we could engineer it to get rory laird as part of the deal i'd be pretty pleased...it would be interesting if the crows demanded anb and sparrow for laird, which i'd be somewhat tempted to do tbh, but the reality is i think they think laird's worth a first round pick...so......

who needs a ruck, or at least a second option? essendon, maybe sydney with naismith doing another acl, but other than that there might not be much demand for one this year

we traded tyson for preuss and a late pick (which we used to draft hore, who - you never know - pies might want to bring him home as an intercept half back next year as coverage for howe), so it's not likely he has much value - we might do preuss and our second rounder for essendon's second rounder, say, or perhaps preuss and brayshaw for essendon's first rounder, which we use get laird

meanwhile, hore and our third rounder for the filth's second rounder?

net result:
IN: laird, 2020 2nd round draft pick
OUT: brayshaw, preuss, hore

it all comes down to list changes, but if say it is suddenly 35 on the list and only having to use two picks at the 2020 draft, i'd go with the following list changes:

  • Jones - retirement
  • Hibberd - retirement / delisted
  • Kolodjashnij - retirement / negotiated payout
  • Nietschke - retired / delisted
  • Baker - delisted
  • Chandler - delisted
  • C Wagner - delisted
  • J Wagner - delisted
  • Dunkley - delisted

it's going to be pretty brutal if it's a reduction to 35 on the list (worse still if we have to carry kk) and i don't think any of the above would have much value to any other clubs

it's possible the likes of weideman or o mac might have value at the trade table...but for what? if you only have to use the two picks this year, you'd want it to be a future pick, and i don't think either is worth much more than a speculative third rounder...at best

i can't see either having much value for other clubs - if they can't make our side, not sure whose they would be making - so they might both prefer to stay with us and fight for their spot, plus of the two only o mac is out of contract at the end of 2020 anyway

35 players really doesn't seem like enough to get through a full 22 game, 120 min per game season to me, but if the above happened this would be the mfc 2021 list:

  1. May
  2. Salem
  3. Harmes
  4. Jackson
  5. Viney
  6. Lever
  7. Spargo
  8. Gawn
  9. Bedford
  10. Oliver
  11. Langdon
  12. Bennell
  13. Melksham
  14. Hannan
  15. Tomlinson
  16. vandenBerg
  17. Jordon
  18. Rivers
  19. T McDonald
  20. Weideman
  21. O McDonald
  22. Hunt
  23. Neal-Bullen
  24. Fritsch
  25. Sparrow
  26. Petty
  27. Pickett
  28. Brown
  29. Jetta
  30. Lockhart
  31. Smith
  32. Bradtke
  33. Laird
  34. 2020 2nd round pick
  35. 2020 2nd round pick (the filth's)

possible side, based on what we're putting out vs geelong and what we ran with against carlton...

B: Lockhart - May - Smith
HB: Salem - Lever - Harmes
C : Langdon - Petracca - Laird
HF: Hannan - T Mac - Melksham
F: Hunt - Fritsch - Pickett
Foll: Gawn - Oliver - Viney
I/c: Jackson - Bennell - Tomlinson - vandenBerg
Emerg: Sparrow - Weideman - ANB - Jetta

We have only one guy on our list who has kicked more than 35 goals in a season. Once.  

We have abundance of contested mids. 

Viney + 1st rounder for jeremy cameron (via essedon etc) has to be a year end consideration.

Fwiw, in 2018 we were 9-6 without jv.

He's a fantastic player but if there's one team in the afl that can give up an inside mid for a key forward to correctly balance their list, its mfc.

Apologies to all. I was only raising this thread to highlight Darcy Tucker as the type of player we need.  Tough. Elite skills. Good pace.  
 

Salem hasn’t quite developed into a midfielder nor the Birchall-Houli-type quarterback halfback.  I really do hope Salem steps up as our half back this year as he is reaching 24 now (25 soon) and should be at his prime years. 

By the way, I’m keeping Brayshaw,Harmes, Viney, Preuss. Etc.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren.

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
