Dunkley has just formally requested a trade which if the dog do a trade with ess they will get another 1 maybe 2 first round picks which would mean I think they would be even more happy to except the above trade.

No way, Dodoro will offer pick 92.

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

People talking about our culture, that from Dunkley is a massive indictment on the Doggies supposed culture.

Well...... apparently Mahoney will not last beyond years end, Tmac for Polec, both McDonald's want a trade, club wants pick 9 for McCrae, we're after a young quick Saints player and some still think Burgo is leaving soon...

From a semi-reliable source, well, er... not really

Mahoney has been given a demotion and has applied for a job with another club

TMac clearly close to being traded  

OMac obviously going to be traded or delisted  

Wait and see what we do with trading to get up the draft ⏸️

Trade period is still going (Saints player) ⏸️

Widely reported Burgess was nearly poached. Crows balked at his enormous contract, Dees have held him to it  

It's weird, I've not seen you one single time reply to the massive amount of correct info I've posted.

Perhaps one day when you contribute something other than snarky comments about people on the internet you might just become a useful poster here. Until then tho.... 👋

Jeez champ. You’re just so childish at times it’s cringeworthy.

Why didn’t you either comment on his post or simply ignore it?!

Apparently some can change the goal posts while others, like @Dr evil, can't.

Gotta love trade period.

Bing on a footy unrelated topic. Are you still in Francais?  If so how are you holding up. How is it over there? Things are looking pretty tough virus wise. How's the riding going?

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.

Serious question - is that what you’ve heard?

I rate Mahoney - I’d be disappointed if this is the case.

I'd trade places with you if I could.

To paraphrase PJK-I'll be off to Europe!

The last time I was in Paris people were generally struggling mentally anyway. I think they always do.

Ricky Nixon has dumped more rumours tonight than the Democrats have dumped random votes for Biden in the American presidential race. Here they are -

• Jeremy Cameron – Talks between the Cats and Giants have come to a grinding halt, with GWS insisting on receiving players – not picks – which makes sense given the mass exodus from there.   This is the usual stand off around a player such as Cameron. GWS have said they want two players in return for Cameron believed to be Esava Ratugolea and Sam Menegola ... GWS have put four year deal on table to Sam Menegola.

• Three Victorian clubs are sitting back watching closely on the Jeremy Cameron deal they are the obvious Carlton Essendon Collingwood.   All ready to trump up with a better deal than what Geelong can…….so does Geelong trade Ratugolea and Menegola……I would definitely not trade Menegola…..now way 

Essendon talks strongly going around pick 7 will head to the Western Bulldogs in return for Josh Dunkley talks Bulldogs keen to use pick 7 and try and lure Adam Treloar to the club defiantly watch this space round this deal.

• For me St.Kilda the obvious place for Treloar where he can contribute to them finishing above Collingwood again this year.

• Saints boss Simon Lethlean says that contrary to reports Jack Higgins has not made any intentions of a move to St Kilda (that might be true but he left off the part that they have had discussions with him at length……might want to get in quick because Carlton real keen ... real keen.

• Sainter Seb Ross now linked to a three year deal at Essendon. 

• I hope it’s not true that Carlton have offered Zac Merrett  the most ridiculous deal I’ve ever heard of 6 years at 900+ ... just a little warning if true Carlton don’t spend up too big on Cripps backups and lose the lad back to WA 

• Daniel Talia – Essendon in to him, as source believes he could be on the move as Adelaide look to gain currency for him now rather than dealing with a potential free agency hassle next season. Crows footy boss Adam Kelly, however, says he’s a “required player”. Contracted until 2021 despite Essendon has offered him two-three years on table for him after he wants to return back home to Victoria.

• Harry McKay – Essendon made a play at the key forward, but neither Carlton nor McKay are entertaining a move. Contracted until 2021 and he wishes to stay at Carlton next year.

• Matthew Scharenberg – Had been mulling over a return to his native South Australia after falling out of favour in 2020, but has since been delisted so will definitely try to earn a lifeline with the Crows. Delisted free agent.

• Josh Thomas from Collingwood linked to three clubs Gold Coast Sydney GWS showing interest around him the last couple days talks going around he could be set to stay at the pies next year.

• Jayden Laverde only one club the last 24hrs have questioned his playing movements is believed to be North Melbourne.

• Shaun McKernan – Will sign with the Saints as the news I broke 2 weeks a go and lots of Saints fans saying it wont happen….BANG. Delisted free agent talk is one-two year deal on table.

• Brandon Matera three clubs the last 48hrs having been expressing interest in him talks believed to be Adelaide Hawthorn West Coast showing interest in him.

• Mason Wood been linked two clubs Sydney and Carlton as delisted free agent. 

• Jake Carlisle – Had fallen out of favour at points, but Brett Ratten has since claimed he will be offered a new deal. Hawthorn tried desperately to get him across after Hawthorn offered him three year deal talks Carlisle will stay at St Kilda talks two years have been offered to him from St Kilda.

• Nick Hind – Essendon are making a play at the small forward as a replacement for Orazio Fantasia. Out of contract, not a free agent.

• Jack Lonie – Fell out of favour at points in 2020 looks likely to seek a new home – although St Kilda want to keep him. Carlton and Collingwood came knocking last time he was out of contract, but the Western Bulldogs are reportedly the most interested club this time around. Out of contract, not a free agent. Western Bulldogs have asked to meet with Lonie this weekend. 

• Paddy McCartin has been asked from Essendon to have a discussion with them two clubs showing huge interest in him believed to be Carlton and Sydney talks David Teague is absolutely wrapped with Paddy in the meeting with him.

• North Melbourne Coach - Michael Voss been linked to three to four year deal as coach talks North strongly keen on Voss and he has had fair few discussions with the club personally I don’t think Michael knows what way to go.   Also talks that Gary Ayers and Mark Williams have also had chats with the club as well but Ross Lyon no interest as he has an eye on an Ess or Coll etc.

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

• Tom Hickey looks set to nominate Sydney from West Coast three year offer on the table to him talk is he’s told the west coast players he wishes to be traded.

Jordan Clark linked to a three year deal at Fremantle talk Geelong is trying put a deal on the table for him to stay at Geelong.

• Ben Brown after nominating Melbourne he has passed medical for Melbourne that deal will be done now that Melbourne got the results back talk four-five years on table for him.

• GWS have asked Essendon the only way Jye Caldwell deal will get done would see a late 1st round pick to see that deal done.

• Lachie Shultz looks set to stay at Fremantle.

• Three clubs showing huge interest in Peter Wright is North Melbourne Essendon Collingwood Collingwood still front runners for him as far as doing a trade but sources close to Wright tell me he’s a mad Pies Fan and prior to him getting drafted Collingwood said they’d nominate him but they didn’t and this is a strong reason Wright aint super keen on them at the moment 

• Tom McDonald the last 48hrs GWS have shown interest talks going around two club race for him now is between Essendon and North Melb 

• GWS will trade Zac Langdon to West Coast for pick 54.

• Jack Stevens from Geelong been linked to North Melbourne talks Geelong keen offload Stevens pay him out for next year talks could force him to retire depending offer on North Melbourne.

• West Coast officials set to hold Zoom Meeting with Alex Witherden.

• Two clubs race for Luke Dunstan from St Kilda are Carlton and Adelaide.

Wow, what a post Pinball.

Most interesting to me, is the fact that the same clubs are bidding on nearly every available player, with seemingly no problem with their salary caps. These clubs have also recruited heavily last year, obviously offering lucrative contracts to get their new players.

How do they have so much cap room?

I thought Collingwood were interested in Tommy? No mention of Phillips I think he will be part of the deal that secures Tommy.

    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

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    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
