This talk of Adam Saad for pick 7 must surely be posturing.

If we got Michael Hibberd for pick 30 and Melksham for around the same, how the hell is Saad worth pick 7?

Saad's better that Hibbo and not coming off a missed year. His value is around 14-20. Carlton should split the pick 7 and eventually Essendon will have to accept a later pick. But for now the silly stuff continues.

Dodoro isn't actually as bad as people think. The only time he really dug his heels in was for Paddy Ryder and history will show Ryder was probably worth digging his heels in for. 

He turned down a deal on Daniher but it would've been brave to accept losing him before trying everything to keep him.

Dododo losing more of his ‘mind’ with advancing age, that and the massive superiority complex........

Every time ET posts in here I get excited, thinking he's about to post his next big scoop. But to no avail.

I wonder what it would take to prize Devon Smith out of Essendon. Probably too much.

Essendon think Saad is worth more than pick 7 but Dunkley is only worth a late first. They’re all insane

No idea if these are two of the guys Dr EvIl is talking about but a mate told me today that we're interested in Ed Richards and Jack Billings. 

No idea what that means in terms of likelyhood of getting them, but apparently they're two players we'd like to get across if we can. 

i played with sauce and i gotta say he didn't stand out during his draft year, hasn't really dominated a game yet and probably lucky to not get dropped more often, hes been tried at HB, wing and small forward (giving me poor mans hunt vibes and i dont like hunt), surprised he went as high as he did (i think the name helped a lot) and i would probably steer clear, theres better alternatives out there.

Interesting. Billing’s crosses my mind but it’d mean parting ways with a first rounder. Given our supposed interest in Finna Macrae it would mean Brayshaw would have to go you’d think?

Crouch to Saints rules out a straight swap too I’d suspect.

No clue how they'd get it done or anything but yes. a first rounder seems about right and he'd certainly improve the team

Richards would be handy on a half forward flank and an upgrade on Melksham IMO.

Not BIllings' biggest fan, but another lefty with good ball use.

i wonder if egg-smith is looking for opportunity at the top level, stuck behind many at tigerland, along with higgins/aarts

maybe tom langdon to join his brother too?

This is exactly what we should be doing, still early to mid 20's who can apply pressure, tackle and kick goals.

Ed Richards would be handy and maybe he is gettable. Contracted next year but he might be after a change. He moves well but doesn't get that much of it and I suppose he hasn't really improved that much in his 3 years in the system. I'd take him - could go ok on the wing. 

Couldn't see the Saints parting with Jack Billings. Would demand good coin too.

Can we keep the thread on track by not baiting each other?

Be interested to hear whether those two names @Dr evil alluded to are the same two names @Patches O’houlihan has heard.

Simple philosophy really. Everything they sell is pure gold and what they buy is pure rubbish. That is if you measure it by the demand or offer.

Billings would be the perfect outside tonic that we are desperate for. Like @Pulp Fritschon said though, can't see the saints parting away with Billings. They'd want a first round pick.

Richards is an interesting one. Played half back in his under 18s year and was pretty impressive but the doggies have played him as a half forward flank.

Brown and smith are coming, hind I think will as well, and there are two other players who’d walk into our best 22 that haven’t been mentioned on here that I’ve been asked not to name. But I’m sure demonlanders won’t complain when the names are revealed. 

we’re desperate to get young macrae through the door.
 

looking at a similar restructure to our list as the saints had last year introducing a lot of speed to their side 

Man I hope you're legit! haha

Billings is an interesting one. I know Roos really rated him and I think said we might have taken him pick 2 traded for Tyson/Salem. He had his worst year, played fwd a lot and only kicked 11 goals.  he was good last year though, averaging 26 touches.  he is smack bang in his prime but can't get that consistency.  maybe a move would be good for him.

worth a first rounded though after this year? maybe a late 1st rounder.

Still think the right play is to grab Tom Phillips. Would walk into our best 22 on the wing and is a good age bracket to give 6-7 years.  A three year contract deal and offering our 2021 2nd round pick to the Pies gets it done.  Makes sense to the Pies to free up salary room for their other priorities.

Would you do Brayshaw for Billings?

    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.
