i don't know why we'd be chasing blokes who can't make their current side

if we're chasing maynard then there's obviously some wiggle room in our salary cap, so i'd rather target:

  1. brayden maynard (filth)
  2. adam cerra (freo)
  3. karl amon (pear)
  4. ben king (gc17)
  5. izak rankine (gc17)

That list doesn't exactly whet the appetite. We can do much better

Would love Trent Dumont on the opposing wing to Langdon. Hasn’t played much this year due to injury, but his past few years he showed a lot playing as an outside midfielder in a [censored] team (North). Watched him closely as I drafted him in a work fantasy league haha. If we could get him cheap, we should definitely do it.

The rest of that list is a hard pass.

You can already tell Rankine is a lazy player, but if we think his attitude would turn in our environment, then he'd add an extra exciting dimension to our forwardline. Really not sure he'd fit into our pressure set up though.

I'd definitely target Ben King though.

rankine has a huge amount of talent, just needs someone to harness it and make him work

Would love Maynard. Why does Amon want to leave? The rest are on too much money. I wouldn't mind Richards from the dogs.

These type of discussions are pointless but amusing. Here's how it goes:

An article is released suggesting we go after some role-players, because we're about to hit the cap in a year or two.

Supporter base dismisses suggestions because they'd rather just sign the best available players. 

Here's a realistic challenge - name some upcoming free agents that would be useful but aren't going to cost 600k+.

It's the moves that lift the quality of our bottom 6-10 players without losing any top talent, that will make the biggest difference. For the most part, anything that happens at the top end is going to require us to lose significant talent to facilitate the move.

the reason why maynard should be our #1 target is that he's a pre-agent

we've adjusted various contracts over the last few years - big extensions for petracca, salem, lever, gawn, viney, harmes - and given that there was talk we were super keen on zerrett and now there's talk that we have been into maynard for some time i would say it's extremely likely that we have a fair bit of salary cap space cleared out as a result, especially with the likes of jones, jetta, and hibberd coming to the end of their contracts

i think it's worth remembering that jetta signed a new contract as a prospective free agent in the wake of an all oztrayan season; he wouldn't be on chump change

Interesting, you are correct, I didn't realise Jetta re-signed in 2017

Tom Morris reporting that Suns eager to find a partner in crime for Ben King. They have pick 3 on offer and also 2 top of second round picks. 

Weid is definitely not worth pick 3 but given they are after experience, who could make way with Weid to get Pick 3 plus one of their 2nd round picks in exchange. The Suns need legitimate experience so someone who could impart good training standards and still have a few years of football left in them. 

I've scanned the list and there really isnt much we can offer them. Doubtful that Jones and/or Jetta would attract any attention. Hard to see anyone wanting to leave as well given our progression. But if I was forced to put up some options that fit the Suns needs I would look at one of Hibbo, Brayshaw, Harmes or Melksham. 

We could then use both of our 2nd round picks to bring in Maynard and still have pick 3 to either take to the draft or cash in on another high profile trade.

I think these are pretty fair assumptions and there very well may be room for a decent player but having a bit of wiggle room is also important.

We're going to have Oliver's contract to sort soon (which will likely be something similar to Petracca), then Rivers, Jackson, and Pickett will make significantly more than they do now.

I'm confident the club knows what it's doing but going after the big fish year after year could land us in Collingwood's situation.

That said, I'd also love to add Maynard.

I can't see GC taking this on with pick 3 even in the conversation. They recently got rid of Peter Wright for close to nothing. I would say that Wright was shown more than Weid's during his career. For pick 3 they would want someone mid 20's who has shown more maybe a Harry McKay or Naughton (they'll probably have to sweeten the deal). What will probably happen is they over offer a declining power forward and get them in under FA (Tmac might actually be a target, Tex, Kennedy, Riewoldt, Hawkins type).

TMac is definately a better fit, but i would struggle to see how we would let him go ahead of Weid. He would have to request the trade, which he may very well do. 

Weid is not worth pick 3 for sure, hence why we would have to sweeten the deal. 2 players for Pick 3 + 2nd or 3rd rounder is probably a more worthwhile discussion. Something like:

Weid + Brayshaw for Pick 3 + 2nd Rounder, Or Weid + Melksham for Pick 3 + 3rd rounder Or Weid + ANB for Pick 3 and 3rd rounder

With the question marks still on BBB, i just cannot see how we would even entertain letting TMac go... This may well change between now and end of season though.

I think Weid would be worth a 3rd rounder at most, Wright went for a 4th round. At this stage, he's probably worth more to us than anyone else (kinda like TMac last year). Packaging him up role players doesn't get to pick 3 let alone another pick. Only way I can see it happening is if Weid is being added as steaknives. Or those suggestions, Weid + Brayshaw might get us a late first rounder.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
