We are targeting Maynard and likely to get him.  Its been a long campaign similar to that to secure Langdon.

Assume his Dad ( Peter, an ex Demon ) still works for us at Casey as GM.

What size is this fish? Could it be the elusive big fish we've been trying to land for years? We probably need a riddle here.

Koi?

Just a few ideas for the types of players we need. Take with a grain of salt.

 

Half Backs to replace Hibberd and Jetta:

Ed Richards due to the plethora of half backs the dogs have; Johannisen as a short term fill

Dan Houston and try get him back to VIC, Coffield as maybe a change of scenery would help him

Eggmolesse-smith as a very cheap option for depth who has upside and skill

 

Outside mids to support Langdon:

Liam Duggan, Brayden Ham, Justin mcinerney, Oli Florent (long shot), petrevski-seton as a hybrid mid on the cheap to rejuvenate his career

 

Ball use/forward of centre players:

Jack Billings as a free agent, Rhylee west who we bid on when he was initially drafted who can't get a regular game, Ben Ainsworth, Kane Farrell, Petrucelle, Lachie Schultz, Luke Breust (2 year contract for the experience to help with kozzy, spargs and nibbla)

Boom! Thanks GNF. Many’s the slip between the cup and the lip of course  but massive if it pans out.

Why does he want to leave Collingwood? Langdon wanted to come home totally different campaign in my eyes.

Well... they have terribly handled their salary cap and jettisoned good players in their prime and apparently may need to do so again.

They have an old playing list with most of their better players 27 years old with a heap of others over 30.

Their coach just quit. 

The board are infighting with a large spill on the cards.

He is 24 and probably doesn't want to play his prime in a rebuilding side.

Easy move to make in terms of where we play and train. Wants to play in a premiership.

I think we should give Quinton Narkle a crack.

Hopefully take advantage of Geelong's desire to top up with 30+ year olds and nab a guy who otherwise would be in their best 22.

Has shown good signs at times and maybe a change of scenery would help.

I think we should give Narkle a good 3 year contract.  But what trade bait can we offer?  Perhaps let’s look to trade out a player like Hibberd for Narkle.  Nothing against Hibbo.  He’s 31 so right in the Cats perrrrrrfect age bracket!?!?!

I wouldn't be trading Hibbo he's proven Narkle isn't

Petrevski-Seton is an interesting one - probably gettable for a third rounder, horribly mismanaged by Carlton, ex pick 6 and only 23. Option on the wing and half forward - he's not really a defender or inside midfielder

I really rated this kid early in his career but he's gone backwards tremendously.  He's horribly inconsistent.

The only role I could see him playing for us would be a high half forward or wing which involves a lot of selfless running which I'm not sure he's the guy for.  Maybe a change of scenery & some better players/mentors would help.

You're right with the trade value.  I wouldn't offer anything higher than a late third.

Just re-visiting last years trade with the Lions which so far has been a win - in points value at least.

We gave up:

  • 2021 first pick (currently 18 @ 985 points)
  • Pick 25 @ 756 points
  • Pick 68 @ 59 points 
  • Pick 69 @ 49 points 

Total = 1849

We received:

  • Pick 18 @ 985 points
  • Pick 19 @ 948 points
  • 2021 Lions second pick (currently 33 @ 563 points

Total = 2,496.

The difference of 650+/- rates to around pick 29.

If NGA & Father Sons pop up our 2021 first pick that the Lions own may drop a few spots which makes the trade even more favourable.  Obviously if we drop a few games the difference will drop and the trade doesnt look as good.

So as positive as this has been, it leaves us with bugger all trade currency with our first two picks currently sitting at 33 and 39.

If we're keen to play in trade week, I definitely wouldn't be surprised to see someone like a Weid offered up

Keep trading forward next year's first until we look like sinking back down the ladder in the 2030s rebuild

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
