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.

Sounds like Rick has run out of nose beer.

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.

Everyone loves rumour speculation during trade period about our club. CHF is presenting it perfectly. 

Take note @Dr evilat the way @CHFconsistently states, "I am hearing" and at no stage has stated "player X is 100% coming to our club, nobody needs to worry". 

I would have thought the difference in posting style is fairly obvious. 

Nobody is going to pot you if you post information in the right manner. It's pretty easy really.

Rubbish. The reason people like @CHF have to hold back is because a small minority of posters on here are threatened by posters with information, for whatever reason. So they create a standard where everyone but them must have every bit of intel they post come through. I’ve spoken to 10 plus posters with information that used to post it but don’t anymore and they always name the same few posters as the reason.

Haha, unreal. 

I've been reading and posting on this forum for years, as many have, and there have been countless posters who have shared what they've heard and stated it plainly and clearly. Prefacing what they post by stating it is indeed second hand info. 

Posters like that are appreciated by the vast majority on here and if a troll or two put them off for posting that info then I don't know why they post on forums. 

The vast majority wouldn't have said diddly squat to you either. And your info was appreciated by the vast majority before you made your bed by responding to individual posts on several occasions stating in bold that Smith was 100% signed, sealed, delivered. 

The problem is yours and yours alone. And whoever the posters were that msged you, they either made the same mistake you did, or their tolerance for questioning from a select few trolls is not where it needs to be on a platform like this. 

@CHFshould know that whatever info they share is appreciated by the great majority, and as long as they keep sharing what they've heard, without jumping the gun early and making silly statements several times, they will not be bothered by the great majority.

I've said this before, if you're coming on a football fan forum and you're not taking every single thing you read with a grain of salt, you've only got yourself to blame. and if you're getting upset or annoyed at posters for getting it wrong, grow up. 

I almost never share the intel i get on the public forum anymore because it's genuinely not worth the BS that comes with it.

I got to know Ricky  years ago, pre sniffing. Played basketball together, he was ok, a bit of a joke. He would walk down the court telliing the ref how much more he knew about the game than him. He walked in the shadow of some genuine stars at Calton. Success with his Top Ten concept went to his head, literally. Some many people started hanging off his every word. Take it all with a grain of salt now.

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 making a few calls to him trying to entice him over with his preferred role of being a run with/inside mid. Don't know how much he considered it, wasn't told, but Harmes had been pretty disappointed with Goodwin during the year for not communicating.

He had a meeting with Goodwin yesterday and apparently put it all on the table a bit. Made it clear he wasn't happy with where the culture was at and that there was different rules for different players. Goody didn't agree with all of it but at least heard him out and it was apparently a pretty productive meeting.

What's come out of that is Goody has told him he won't be traded and that next year he will go back to a run with role where he drifts forward. The feeling from the family member was that it was an improvement from what they've seen with Goody's listening and they put it down to mostly Richo's influence and possibly a bit of Yze's.

Not exactly earth shattering news, but thought I'd pass on to try and get us back on track a bit.

I can absolutely believe the framework of this,  but I always have a hard time believing the concept that:

"Goodwin thought that the MFC was best off having Harmes play down back this year, but because he complained Goodwin promised to change our entire onfield balance by shifting him back into the mid field." (Paraphrased obv)

Making that change as part of a larger coaching season review, I can believe. But not knee jerk based on one convo, walking out thinking to himself "Oh no, I just signed Viney for 5 years, and now I promised Harmes midfield time. What do I do?"

If true tells me all i need to know about Goodwins mismanagement and people skills

At least he appears to be listening and taking counsel

    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

    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

There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs.
