Can you play all of Brown, Tmac, Jackson, Fritsch, Gunston in the same forward line?

Gunston is an absolute jet but IMO we already have our Gunston in Fritsch. Gunston might be cooked as well he has missed the entire year pretty much with a back injury, which is pretty bad especially for an older player. I'd like to see Fritsch drift higher up the ground more like Gunston does, his field kicking exquisite, especially going inside 50 always lowers his eyes.

Agreed, I'd be looking for another small to pair with Kozzie rather than an aging tall

Interesting that during the Demonland podcast Pert was talking about having conversations with players wanting to come here. Said it is very different to previous years and players were saying 'If I've only got a few years left Melbourne is a club I'd like to go to'.

It may have been an off the cuff comment but I wonder if we are looking at someone like Gunston or Bruest who won't be there when the Hawks are successful again

Wouldn’t mind us having a crack at Pendles on a Lewis like deal. 2 years on a playing/coaching role. Might help clean up our midfield decision making

My favourite non MFC player. All class, always has time

I'd be genuinely happy if we had a serious crack at Luke Parker.

29 at the start of next year and the Swans would demand the world for him.

Weid (valued at: pick 30)
Pick 31 (tied to Bris)
Pick 54
Total points value - 1455, equivalent to pick 10 
In exchange for Brayden Maynard.

Remaining assets to trade into the 2021 draft:

Pick 38 (tied to Hawks) 
Future 2022 1st round draft pick (Melb) - will be assumed to be pick 18 by opposition to cover worst case scenario (in their eyes)
Total points value 1450 - equivalent to pick 10

I don’t think he can put contract talks on hold considering he's still contract until the end of 2022.

Collingwood could be trying to extend / re negotiate his contract on a back ended deal, that seems to have worked well for them lately.

Would be a great get but can’t see him leaving.  He is skipper, they are flying and they are a brilliant club

All I’ve heard at this stage is that Barrass from WCE to Sydney Swans will get done on compassionate grounds, and I find it very hard to believe, however, I’m hearing that Harmes is not happy with his “role” at the Dees and will entertain trade talks at end of year.

Fair enough. 

On Harmes, not sure how this can be possible? He's being playing pure mid or close enough to it the last couple games, at the expense of Viney's additional forward time.

losing harmes wouldnt be a bad thing at all for our guts, get gus on the inside and go for that lipinski type on the wing and get more games into jordon/sparrow who are just as capable. would be relatively surprised tho as he is a dees fan since childhood and he's got the big LT deal sorted and he'd definitely like the offfield shenanigans that we know go on

also on barrass, wouldn't be such a loss for the eagles either Hedwards looks a real type at over 200cm and they've still got mcgovern, nelson etc in the short term obviously barrass is a serious star player but if any side has the defensive depth to not notice it'd be the weagles. not sure how the swans pay him tho given their public issues on the coin front especially given aliir just made way in that same role

I'm not a massive fan of Harmes as a player, but he's had so many mixed messages (right or wrong) from Goodwin over the last 2 years and has been frustrated most of that time. Clearly played out of position last year, this year was put more into a role that suits his strengths but was then given very specific instructions on how to play it and what to do; which made it more complicated - and let's be honest, he's the kind of player who needs it simple - and I wouldn't be surprised if that's had an impact on this apparent want for a trade. He was very very close to requesting a trade last year but Yze smoothed things over, as he's done with a lot of players, and he was swayed.

I know Harmes and Goody sometimes have had their moments, but you can't underestimate how much he and his family are invested in the club so I'd be somewhat surprised if a trade did eventuate; although not totally disappointed tbh.

Great Intel mate.

Unfortunately his old man passed away back in March.

It would be disappointing if Harmes has not accepted his role especially as so many others have accepted changes.  The most obvious example is Gus.  Not only has he accepted the wing role he has embraced it and is a real asset to the team.  Viney is spending time fwd,  Oliver is playing a bit more outside etc.  The irony is that all those role tweaks/changes enable Harmes to spend more time in the middle.  

Harmes came as a life long dees fan, a rookie, made a real go of it and earnt a long term contract.  It would be sad for him to go.  He still has a few years to go on his contract so I guess it is his choice to play the team game or to move on.

    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.
