Are we still going for Polec or is that off the table?

Merrett is there any substance in it?

We still after Ben.Brown and Isaac.Smith?

Who else are we after ? Tarrant, Hurley maybe?

Out of interest, who would be your preference out of Cameron, Brown and Wright?

Brown Cameron's on too much and Wright hasn't shown anything.

Mihocheck and Gunston

Both would be good but it wopuld have to be Gunston kicks more goals. Can't see Collingwood letting Mihocheck go.

Would definitely look at Hurley as the linkman/swingman if possible

Apparently Saints and Bombers are into Caldwell from GWS. I hope we throw our hat in the ring if he wants to come home to Vic. I’m a fan, got potential to be a well rounded midfielder.

Would we go big for Jeremy Cameron? 

I think not only do we need a big forward, we need a big signing! need some way to sell some hope to members that 2021 is gunna be better.

Essendon probably thinking the same think at this point. I don’t know why we wouldn’t at least make a pitch.

Talented but being a touch underwhelming for mine and it's a harder sell to crack our midfield than the teams chasing him. I think we'd have to trade someone out to show him a path to games (and to free up the cash and picks). Probably cost our earliest pick this year and more, I'd probably rather give JT a chance in the draft

Agree. If we can shed some TPP by moving on some players that in my opinion are surplus to our needs in Tmac and Brayshaw, we should go hard for Cameron.

I think there is no question that Brayshaw will be on the table if clubs ask about him.  Cameron is a good player, I doubt we are in the mix for him but who knows the Giants need to start worrying about losing young players that are early picks due to paying to much to keep players, they might be prepared to lose Cameron and keep 2-3 developing players instead of these kids looking elsewhere.

Agree on Brayshaw, not certain on cameron. I know he is a good player but would prefer someone with a bit more aggresion. That said would be happy to do that swap.

Mihocek is out of contract so if Collingwood can't afford him which they can't unless they move on someone they can't just "not let him go" because he will just join another club that will give him a payday through the pre season draft and Collingwood get nothing. If we move on Preuss and Tmac we will have enough money for Cameron, that would be my play. Not keen on Ben Brown at all because he wouldn't fit well with Weid, both are immobile full forwards, we need a mobile CHF to go with Weid. If we can't get a Cameron or Gunston I'd be fine with backing in Tmac to slim down and take back that position.

SEN reporting Carlton are "keen" on De Goey and have room for one more big name after Williams and Saad.

What an efficient period that may be for them if they can get them all over the line. Although i am sure it would create some cap issues. 

Hopefully we can pull off another missing piece of the puzzle this period. 

Which teams below us on the ladder are you most worried about for 2021?

Collingwood would rather [censored] in their hands and clap then allow De Goey to walk to the old enemy

Polec no go.

Nothing heard about Merrett.

Smith a very good chance to be a Demon. Brown a chance, but not a big one yet - Price is reasonable, but injuries a barrier.

Don't know we'll do much other than Smith tbh. We apparently just don't have the wriggle room atm.

If we're right at the edge of our cap, surely we're doing everything in our power to jettison some of the deadwood elsewhere? Just cannot see how this list recovers to even challenging for a decent finals position with the pieces we have now. Seems like extremely poor list management if we've backed ourselves into a spot where we cant even make finals with zero room to bring quality players in during the off season or even shed players that aren't required.

I don't know if we're right at the egde, don't know enough specifics, sorry! Just know we don't have the space for a big fish type of player currently. I mean, there could be a player that requests a trade out that we don't see coming, but as far as I've heard we're more looking at decent free agents atm rather than any particular big trade target. I only ever hear a few bits and pieces tho, so quite likely there's plenty going on I have absolutely no idea about, this time of year everything is a bit up in the air somewhat.

My opinion is that the feeling is the improvement will come more from off field things next year.

Disappointed re Polec. Do have any info re what blocked that move?  Was it the money he wanted, what North wanted in exchange or just a lack of interest on our part?

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
