With Geelong forming a dad's army with Higgins and Smith, maybe we can pry a quality young player out that may be starved of opportunity either this year or next. Maybe Clark? Would love for them to fall off a cliff with an ageing list and then lose their young talent in the process.

Smith is a double agent, Alastair Clarkson has sent him to Geelong so he can age their list, a young player will either get delisted, or not get games, and rot on the vines. Smith is finished, he's disposal efficiency for this season has dropped by a whopping 8% from his career average, that is the first sign of a ageing player, who can not run all day and execute his skills at a high level. This season he would play a great game and then not fire a shot for the next 4 games. higgings is 32 he had a few injuries this season, his body is finished, he will breakdown.

Jed Anderson from North is still out of contract. Pacey midfielder. Anything going around about him @Dr evil?

His management are telling teams he's staying at North Melbourne. not sure what the hold up is on his extension but he's not gettable at this stage.

What's a bigger disaster for the cats, signing Smith, (who i still believe is coming to the Dees) and losing Menegola. or not starting Dangerfield in the middle at the start of the 3rd quarter in the grand final?

I am either missing the /jk tag or else you believe ISmith could still be headed our way - do you still think this? If so, interesting. What would make that series of events occur?

@Dr evil besides Sideshow Bob joining us, do you have any updates at all on who we are targeting? Love your work chief

Mahoney reckons we are done with Brown likely to be the only trade IN and likely to get 3 or 4 players traded out. 
 

FFS. WE NEED OUTSIDE RUNNERS.
A WINGMAN (Phillips) AND MAYBE ANOTHER PACY SMALL FORWARD (Hind) 

We must push the button now or we may go backwards again

@Lord Nev thank you for the update. If we're looking at Treloar, would Tmac to the filth be apart of that deal do you think?

I don't think we're looking at Treloar. Haven't heard anything to suggest it.

You'd have to ask Dr Evil about that one.

Anyone know of any good trade targets? 

Yes let's get this back on topic hey?

The ruck/forward role was interesting from Mahoney. We've interviewed a few potential prospects already. I'm guessing Shaun McKernan is one. Wonder who else We've spoken to?

Yeah i certainly did find that interesting. felt like he was putting the message out to managers of fringe players who play that role who might be looking for another club. I can't imagine it being anyone better than fringe as we wouldn't wanna take game time away from the big 3

Doesn’t Ben Brown solve this as a third option? McKernan makes sense also.

Brown doesn't ruck.

Agree. It will take a lot of guts to come in for this role, especially when you have Weid, Brown Nd Jackson already ahead.

I'd imagine if no options come forward we may keep Mitch Brown for another year?

Purely guessing:

Nathan Vardy (likely stays at Eagles if Hickey goes to the Swans)
Max Lynch - out of contract Collingwood ruck
Sam Hayes - 3rd in line to ruck at Port
Callum Coleman-Jones - Tigers could dump him for poor behaviour
Majak
Wylie Buzza - delisted by the Pies

Yeah you might be on the mark with some of those names.

Is Mason Cox an option..maybe as part of a two way package deal?

I doubt it, I think we'd want someone cheaper, with a bit more appetite for the ruck and probably younger (which goes against McKernan)

Somebody once said that reasoned debate is the foundation of liberal democracy. If that's true, the entire civilisation is suffering an existential threat. And, in case anyone is not aware of it, the alternatives are all worse.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    PODCAST: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week. Binman will do his regular stats files segment for the game against the Bombers and will also preview the upcoming match against the Dockers. He will not be taking any questions. I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    POSTGAME: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    For 3 quarters the Demons ground out a lead against the Bombers in tough wet conditions at the MCG before putting foot down early in the last quarter eventually winning by 17 points and putting them firmly back in the hunt for September action.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
