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.

Please share a lot of whispers about a number of players

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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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
