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 de

You are kidding? Trade Oliver? Wow. I don't think you'll ever come back from that.

This is where you're going wrong. At the end of 2018 Port finished 10th.  At the end of 2019 Port finished 10th again.  This year they finished 1st at the end of H&A.  I dare say you wouldn't

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.

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)

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom. That stat

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h
