@Dr evil@Lord Nev @Chook in Perth @CHF

Just interested to know if any of you have heard anything around us now chasing Tom Phillips with Smith out of the picture?

Thanks

It's already been reported a few times that we offered Phillips a deal at the same time or roughly the same time as Smith. It's matter of what we have to get the deal done, given Phillips has a year to run on his contract, which was not the case with Smith.

I still think we’d be aiming at 

trade out.  Tmc OMc Preuss

trade in. Brown, Phillips, Narkle 

That would be a winner trade period.

the big advantage of smith was that he was a 'free' acquisition

now we'll have to give to get

if we can still manage to do t mac / o mac / preuss out for brown / phillips we're, theoretically, #winning as we've added two best 22 players for 3 players in the 23-30 range

Players like Phillips and Treloar who are being pushed out by their clubs, will be cheaper trades than their true worth, otherwise they will not be chased and will cause salary headaches by staying where they are..

Narkle, Clark and Constable (is he still there?) are of interest to me from Geelong.

Clark is either staying at Geelong or heading to his home state of WA. Constable is a pure inside mid of which we already have too many. Narkle would be handy

I'm staggered how clubs sign up multiple big names and still keep their cap integrity. Clearly something fishy happening and Gill is doing this:

According to Damo Jaidyn Stephenson is looking for a new home. Would slot in nicely as a high half forward upgrading Melksham.

Something along the lines of Tmac + future second for Stevo + Phillips could be of interest.

rumour and i must enforce RUMOUR

is stepho got caught with a hooker in his room in hub and got in a fight with the club staffer who caught him but they obvs tried to sweep it under the rug and keep it on the downlow but it had to do with why he was dropped midseason

could be well off the mark but thats what ive heard from a mate who has a source in the club ?‍♂️

Would love to have Clark ahead of Phillips and most others named on here, Brown excepted, being the key forward.

IMO we should have a real hard go at Clark. He could play wing or half back and then we can forget some other lesser players.

Pressure is building on Geelong to come up with a pay rise to keep breakout star Sam Menegola beyond the end of the next season.

The 28-year-old had a career-best year in 2020, making his first All Australian squad as the Cats reached the grand final.

But his future will be clouded until he puts pen to paper on a new deal, with 7NEWS Perth’s Ryan Daniels reporting rival clubs are standing by to chase Menegola.

Geelong signed Hawthorn wingman Isaac Smith, who turns 32 in December, on Friday.

As part of their tilt at a premiership they will also add GWS forward Jeremy Cameron and North Melbourne midfielder Shaun Higgins by the end of the trade period.

But while those additions were seen as reasonable given Gary Ablett has retired and the Cats had salary cap space previously earmarked to re-sign Tim Kelly, Menegola’s emergence was not so predictable.

May as well get Stepho and add Jesse to the forward  mix and they could have a two for the price if one hooker Hub  deal If we are Covid again in 2021!!

Blokes a gun, would be a fantastic pick up!

Any love at all for Josh Caddy. If we miss out on other targets like a Phillips, Narkle etc. would we ask the Tigers about Caddy’s availability.  He seems on the fringe at the Tigers but is a proven player and goalkicking half forward.  I’m not sure about his off field behavior but thought I’d raise the question.

    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

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    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.
