Ok, so getting back to footy... This is second hand info, passed onto me by someone who has spoken to family of players. Harmes has been chased by North this trade period. Roosy has been mak

For those interested I am hearing that we’d be very keen to have a chat to Adam treloar. If the pies are willing to pay a decent chunk of his salary we’d see him as a fit on the opposite wing to Langd

So we don’t like Rohan and we’re not getting Martin. That’s a real laugh in (and unless you were around in the early 70s you simply won’t get this).

You lived through the 60's and remembered them; how dare you!

Oh god, it's incredible isn't it. i guess the difference is my information doesn't come from facebook and bigfooty for whatever difference that makes. 

No Facebook's information is better then yours, what have you revealed that hasn't been reported by 300 million other people already.

I am hearing that the rest of the trade period is starting to come into focus for the MFC now that there has been more detailed discussion on a number of situations involving players.

I understand that we have a bit more clarity on what might be on offer for both Hannan and Preuss and that marks a way ahead for us on a couple of other deals.

I hear we are looking more closely at Phillips.

Going by reports, it would be Andrew Phillips from the Dons.

Edit - CHF said it was Tom, which could well be true, but we've also been linked to Andrew Phillips to fill the spot McKernan would have.

My last post was the most solid I have heard from a usually reliable person. I will stress that it is still only A RUMOUR.

I would rather not at this stage as I have witnessed how others have been jumped upon and have had to defend themselves.

I will post further if anything more solid that a whisper comes up.

I don't think people are too fussed if things don't eventuate. Only when they're speculative statements delivered as fact.

We are looking at a few avenues to do this both during the trade period and during the draft with pick swaps. Best chance of it happening would be during the late stages of the trade period when there is a lot more clarity.

If we do not get into the first round during the trade period I would not be surprised.

Definitely understand why that's not an appealing thing for you, but don't let it deter you from posting in the future, your contribution is valuable and appreciated.

People, let’s not forget that this thread is for rumours so you can’t get bagged for anything you post that doesn’t turn out. 

For instance, nothing frightens Ricky Nixon who tells us that -

Tom Phillips from Collingwood just been linked to a three year deal at Hawthorn talks going around he will nominate Hawthorn. 

• Stefan Martin from Brisbane after nominating Bulldogs talks two year deal for him.

• Nathan Vardy talks he will stay at West Coast despite trade talks.

• St Kilda have officially ruled out Adam Treloar leaves it for three club race for him Bulldogs strongly interested also hawthorn and Carlton interested talks Dogs set to make huge play for Treloar talks going around Western Bulldogs the only side with the interest with huge salary cap space for him out of all the team’s interested in him.

• Tom McDonald still linked to Essendon talks that deal will most likely get done but talk is Essendon wanna drop down his wage to get that deal done. 

• St Kilda coming out saying they want Nick Hind to stay talks Essendon set to make huge play for the speedster to add more pace to the forward line. 

• Jye Caldwell deal is done deal after he nominating Essendon from GWS talks Essendon are waiting on discussing on nice deal and Jye and involving picks with GWS as well.

• Jackson Hartley from GWS after nominating Adelaide talks they are discussing picks to get that deal done talks Adelaide suggested early second rd pick. 

• Shaun Higgins from North Melbourne talks Geelong were going to offer pick 37 return talks North Melbourne they don’t want pick 37 for him they want in return round pick 25-15 mark in return for him.

• Jack Higgins from Richmond to St Kilda talks St Kilda still showing strong interest talks Richmond now trying to lure him to stay at the club after Higgins and his management are keen to see interest from other clubs also talks Carlton and Hawthorn still showing strong interest in him.

• Chad Wingard despite talks of him he has told the club he wishes to stay at Hawthorn.

• Peter Wright from Gold Coast two minute Peter looks strongly likely to nominate Essendon after he is showing huge interest in the club.

• David Mundy looks set to sign one year deal at Fremantle.

• Andrew Phillips from Essendon back up ruckman has been linked to Melbourne talks Dees very keen on back up ruckman for Gawn.

• Matthew Suckling talks he will stay at Bulldogs dogs very keen on him and he’s very keen to stay at the dogs he’s told the club he’s very happy at the club.

• Kyle Dunkley looks set to sign at Essendon with Josh that deal will get done only if Josh will sign at Essendon they have told Josh about Kyle.

I have to say however, that Ricky might be running out of steam. Nothing much new or controversial here.

Pretty rough on all fronts. 30K - 50K new cases a day, and it's no longer abstract. 2 of the 3 in our household have had a week's isolation waiting for test results after being in prolonged contact with Covid cases. Scary and unsettling. Now all locked down again, all work cancelled, smallish govt $$ handout, but not the same. People generally struggling (mentally), and heading into winter isn't helping. Sorry to be so gloomy. As for riding, limited to 1 km radius/1 hour. But still better than last time where there was no riding at all, so I'm managing to knock myself around riding up and down suburban streets.

Feel for you mate. Crazy times. Do you do any training on an indoor trainer. I do a session on Tacx with some mates every Sunday night. Ones in London 2 in Melbourne, me in Sydney. Connect on Zoom and ride the same course together on Tacx. You’re welcome to join.

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
