One I haven’t seen mentioned yet: Ben Ronke

Has struggled with injury and been unable to recapture his form of 2018 which compares pretty favorably to Papley and Butler’s this year. Vastly more talented than Spargo/Bedford and would likely come for a third round pick.

Like it mate. Doesn't kick a ton of goals, but tackles a lot so Goody would like him. Out of contract too I think?

I like it. If we try really, really hard over the next few months, I'm sure we can have a list with May, Lever, Gawn and 37 small / medium forwards for next year.

For those who put any stock in Sam McLure's word, see here: https://www.sen.com.au/news/2020/09/22/sam-mcclures-comprehensive-trade-update-on-brown-daniher-crouch-saad-cameron/

He says he doesn't know about TMac but suggests non-Victorian clubs would be interested.

Says Hurley, Cameron and Perryman all staying and Brown going to Collingwood or Hawthorn.

Very ‘comprehensive’ indeed

0 goals from 3 games this year. 9 goals in 13 games last year. Has kicked more than 2 goals only twice, which was the day he somehow kicked 7 against the Hawks and then another game where he kicked 5 against North.

If you put those games down as massive outliers then he's no more of a scoreboard threat than Spargo. Maybe a slightly better tackler but not as clean with the ball.

Butler and Papley are much smarter. They create goals. Ronke's a quick player who just found himself in the right spot at the right time on a couple of occasions.

Is there much hope of Hogan returning?  He has seemed disinterested since he got there, he seemed to love being at Melbourne (who knows why?!).  Would be a good swap for both McDonalds

If his body and mind are both right I'd be delighted to have him back  as long as it doesn't cost us too much.

Like the idea of him and May in the same side.

high end trades dont seem to be our strong suit and I unaware of any one of note who has shown the slightest interest in coming .

On top of that we only have 2 realistic draft pick one in the mid twenties and one around mid forties .I have said previously that we can let 10 go without damaging our list structure .Where does this then leave us .? The Answer is ,i believe, that we spread the load and concentrate on b and c graders of the ilk of Polec and Hooker.They are not champions but are better than what we will let go. I do not see any possibility of Jesse returning but would be ecstatic if proved wrong on this .

I know it'll never happened, but I would love the club to ask the question to a former passionate demon supporter in Tim Tarranto. 

Bulk picks on another inside mid would be such a Melbourne thing to do.

I dunno. Our best 22 squad of demon fans growing up is pretty stacked. Pendles, Judd, Gaff, Prestia. Might have to play him on a wing ?

I think we should have a crack at Riley Collier-Dawkins. I know inside mid isn't what we need but this kid is a big body with legspeed and a heap of potential. If we're been bold and willing to let go of Viney or others we shouldn't be afraid to make a few offers.

Worst case scenario is it keeps Richmond honest and ups what they have to pay him.

 

RCD is one that crossed my mind. Was BOG in the VFL GF last season and looked like he would get games this year but couldn't force his way into the Richmond side. Still yet to debut and may look for a change for greater opportunity. The thing also with Richmond is that they have Baker, Aarts,  Pickett, Stack, Chol all still rookies currently playing that need to be upgraded to the main list so something has to give there.

Brandon Matera just delisted by the dockers. has played some good footy at times, has speed, knows where the goals are and we could pick him up for nothing. 

worth a look?

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
