We've offered Nick Hind a 3 year deal, as has Essendon.

Why, he is average or below on everything except tackles. Less than 10 disposals a game. We already have those.

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

Can't see the attraction.  Mature age recruit who has played about 20 game in two years. 

I would rather Neal Bullen, of whom I am not a fan.

Just looked at Hind's wiki page.  He was drafted by Saints from Ess VFL team so he will probably take their offer unless we have offered overs.

That could go both ways; he's been there and knows what they're like.

someone got bored just sitting around with nothing happening

in all seriousness - NFI why they would consider another St Kilda reject - don't see much appeal with Hind prefer to offer Hannan 3 years tbh

Hind is a below average player. Can't see why we'd bother chasing him and offering 3 years. He plays like a ****ter version of Hannan, but without the leap. Kicks a goal every second game. He's behind Kent and about 15 others for the Saints.

If this is the kind of player we're chasing and offering 3 year contracts too, then we're going nowhere fast. St Kilda stock up on proven talent like Jones, Hill, Ryder, Butler, Crouch, Higgins etc. while we take their discards. So frustrating.

Yes, I know they always look good in highlights...

Much better last season that this season, where he was pretty average. Was having Butler there playing similar role a factor?

Looks very good in highlights.  I wonder how Hunt's highlights would look in comparison when all put together?

The player I was keen on that is slipping away is Witherton.  Although less essentially than a small pressure forward, having Witherton in defence or the wing would definitely improve our best 22.  Looks like the eagles are ready to land him.

Do NOT sleep on Treloar, as I thought when JM spoke to traderadio —We are 100% in this but it’ll ALL depend on TMAC.

 

if we somehow find a suitor by Weds COB, Treloar WILL be a demon. We are his preference which has altered things but unfortunately we’re about $425k short this McDonald must find a home (word is we are even offering to pay a record % of salary) but until Cameron and Saad get done it’ll stay stagnant.

Fingers crossed, cus he’s be the ideal wingman and my info is that he’s happy to play that role which again has altered thinking. However it is still unlikely unless TMac finds a home.

This is also why BB deal isn’t done, for we’d need pk26 for any trade w/pies. Remains prob 15% chance but absolutely we ARE in it.

Couple of nibbles for other players that free some extra space but again we won’t move in those if TMAC doesn’t happen.

Others: mild interest in Vardy, A.Phillips, Xerri & Cox (only if we miss Treloar) & Witherden said no thanks to Vic as a whole. 

🤞

I think it's a bit irresponsible for the AFL to allow the trade/free agency period to begin without giving the clubs an answer on salary cap/list sizes for 2021. clubs are effectively working around their best guesses and with a blindfold on.

The most unbelievable part of this is the interest in Cox (or is it of the Cedric variety)

Wouldn't have thought we'd be looking at Vardy and Cox if we're already tight on the salary cap and looking for what is pretty much a VFL ruck spot? Seems a strange call by the club (Preuss Mk II).

Would be surprised if the Pies accepted pick 26 for Treloar too, even in the circumstances, and even if they do, it leaves us with picks 43, 68 and 69 as it stands. Not ideal.

Treloar will go for pick 80 if a club covers the entire wage

Basically Viney is a Vic.

Todd came here in 1986 and played 12 years or so snd only went back I reckon  fir coaching in SA fir 5 years before he returned to Hawks I think. Then came back to us.

Basically Jack has lived 20 out of 25 years in Vic not SA.And would have been born in Vic in 1994 !

Todd went to Echuca as a player coach, he done his knee in the Frist game, Viney grow up with wines

Disagree mate. He'll leave the Pies no doubt, but IMO these things get over-dramatized in the media pretty often. Clubs will still act in reasonably good faith and a fair trade will be done.

Pick 80 is fair for the player they are desperate to off load, so much so that they are willing to upset the Pies players and fans.

Thanks for the goss mate. 

im glad we are in for Treloar. He is a gun and has speed which we lack. Once we don’t screw our cap to get him I’m keen. 

if pies want T Mac we should be able to work stuff out

    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.

    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

    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
