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

Our own Lachie Hunter thread has understandably gone cold.  Heard he might be seriously considering the warmer climate with a 2020 Preliminary finalist.  He is a gun player, no doubt, and will be only 26 yo when the 2021 season starts.

If it's the Suns, then it makes sense why they are not interested in the expensive Treloar.

Not a Preliminary finalist ... implication is Brisbane.

Sorry didn’t see Preliminary Final mentioned. Just assumed Suns as that was the rumoured likely destination.

This is absolutely rumour only but my Geelong contact reckons they have been in constant dialogue with Alex Rance for several months. Shaun Grigg is the conduit. Rance is currently living in Portarlington and keen to have another crack in the AFL.

Could be complete BS as the text I saw claims interest in Isaac Smith is only a smokescreen...

I have heard whispers of a possible trade.

Nothing confirmed ( a long way from it) and information is very thin. I did hear it from two different people.

TMac/VdB packaged with a 2nd round (this year or next) for their first round 2020.

No idea where this originated.

For who's first? GWS or Essendon?

With which club?

That would value both players as only a few spots upgrade in the draft. Obviously if true, a player hoped for in the draft and salary dumping.

That would be Williams compo pick 10? Adelaide have GWS's first round pick 9

Or the Cameron one

Would be a shame to lose AVB but I would take that deal and run

I wonder how much of the salary we’d be taking into next year for the package

Need 10 or lower to get McCrae  if that's the target.

Cameron might get matched, in which case Cats may meed to give up 13, 15 and maybe 20. Or a 3 way deal, eg cats get Jezza, GCS get 13, 15 and 20 (which will get pushed out further with academy bid matching), GWS get 5

Daniher at pick 7 is a joke. Cameron is worth 5, easy.

i imagine AVB is on decent coin coz sydney offered him the same length deal at the time iirc?

with jones going on, already a stacked midfield and sparrow and jordon pushing through i have no issues with him leaving and we all know where we stand with tmac, but giants dont seem too keen? favouring jesse

5 and change I would have thought. Cats got two 1st rounders, p24 & p37 for Kelly, p57 & a ‘20 third round pick in return. Cameron is getting close to a mill a year with a trigger for 6th year. The length of deal probably means they could match as there’s theoretically room to load in back end of deal.

A fun read!

I like this time of year when the rumours run thick and fast.  Whilst I’m sure many/most won’t pan out, none of them seem outside of the realms of possibility.

Sounfs like Sydney are very keen on getting a tall forward in.

Is that because buddy is fading fast?

Would be surprised if he went across the other side of the country, being a local boy, unless there are no other offers.

Wow, would be a decent pick up for the dogs.

Any other info you're heading @demons11. Any word on Brodie Smith? or other tid bits you got?

I am assuming our moves will be based on if Tmac stays or goes?

If you’re asking questions and want serious answers, might I suggest that you don’t ask on a strictly rumour thread.

    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
