Jeremy Cameron



Recommended Posts

i think it's a good thing that the newest franchise have put a line in the sand

cameron has been their 'marquee' (albeit low key) player for a long time; as recently as midway thru this weird season they were saying that there was nothing to see, he was staying, etc. etc.

you can imagine that the change of his intentions threw them for a loop and completely disrupts their plans

hope they make jeerlong pay thru the nose

Sounds like Geelong will give up their three 1st round picks and get a future 2nd back for Cameron. A case of Free Agency not going to script!  Geelong were committed.  GWS knew it.  Good on

I have no issue with either Cameron or Geelong here, but the Free Agency thing clearly isn't doing as intended.

Which is exactly what the AFL wants.  Gil referring to the upcoming GF as the dream match up. Teams like us, Norf and the Aints get further and further away from any chance of a flag every season

Fantastic news for the competition. And it wouldn't completely surprise me if Geelong decides that they've all of a sudden fallen out of love with Jeremy.

I was also thinking that if GWS get Ratugolea (who reportedly they want) they are less likely to want TMac.  And we could be waiting for GWS trades to do North (or other) trades.  Just guessing but we and other teams could be held up by GWS matching.

I don't care LH imo it is good someone is  prepared to stand up to the likes of Geelong.

With GWS matching it means the timeline is no longer in the FA period and falls into the Trade period ie until November 12, more than two weeks away.

It has the potential to hold up a range of other deals with GWS waiting to know what picks/players it gets back so it can decide list needs and whether to use those picks for other trades eg Preuss, TMac etc

Yep, I reckon this'll hold up trades for us.

Why do Jeelong spell their name with a “G” is more the question...?

George, Giants, Gypsies, Gents ...

How do you pronounce this letter: G?

Gee as in Geelong.

Agree with the posters saying that it's likely to hold up our trades. Could work for or against us, too soon to tell so not much point in working ourselves into a state of angst.

I'm happy with Giants matching. It may cause a few delays but not only does it mean Geelong don't get a freebie, but it will bleed them of at least one and possibly two of their first round picks. Giants don't want to draft 7-8 kids in one hit so will try and pry a young talent like Parfitt out of the cats. If that fails, which I think it will, it will mean they have plenty of 1st and 2nd round picks and could be open to swapping one for a package deal we can offer. There have been a few permutations thrown around here, but a future 2nd, Preuss and Avb - or whatever is the latest mail is - could get us back into the first round.

The AFL will compensate themselves very highly for Cameron, no doubt. 
If Joe is worth Pick 7...

No, he will now have to be traded, so no compo pick involved.

Unless we get involved as a third party to help facilitate.

GWS want fair compensation for losing Cameron, they won’t be fussed if the entirety of that compensation comes from Geelong.

Hope the Giants bleed Geelong dry in any Cameron deal.

So glad they matched the offer  (was no doubt engineered by AFL HQ).

Surely you couldn’t be suggesting that the AFL, Gil’s AFL, would be involved with any shonky underhanded manipulation  of the rules, to favour one particular club?? 😮😮😮

Good point.  We are well placed to facilitate as Alex McDonald is player manager for Cameron and TMac (for whom GWS have apparent interest) and Preuss is off to GWS. 

Hypothetically, I could see a trade where we get a 1st round pick from Geelong and send a combo of Preuss/TMac/player x, to GWS and they get other pick(s) from Geelong.  Player x could be Vanders, as it puts him closer to his family and family business in NSW.  Pick 15 from geelong, anyone? :cool: In my hypothetical it would more likely be 18 but one can hope.

If gWS can't get their 'preferred' players from geelong (Parfitt and Ratugolea) Vanders and TMac would be similar position players.

Would TMac + Pruess be a better outcome than Hogan + Ratugolea (if the trade goes via WA / Clarke etc)

For GWS, I’d say yes

So many options.  Apparently Menegola has said he is happy to go back to Freo so Geelong can deal hm and Clarke to Freo but maybe they would want Freo's 1st round pick in return.   So many options...

Hopefully, the Cameron trade gets done quickly so it doesn't hold up everything else.

    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,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    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. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    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
