AFL TRADE NEWS AND RUMOURS

Surprised no one has mentioned Dylan Stephen’s here. Was an absolute jet on the wing in his draft year before being taken at pick 5. With Sydney having a cap squeeze I think he should be high up our hit list.

Sounds like the Swans are pushing him out. I understand the cap issues but clearly internally they must be very underwhelmed by him.

comparisons with jimmy toumpas in terms of his ability to work hard and defensive accountability don't do him many favours

"Was a big bucks man" - I read that to mean he wanted big dollars, so was not thrilled, but if they mean he was close to his former coach, that puts a different light on it.

If he wants success, surely he'd go for us over the Saints.

Scott Pendlebury apparently open to a move to another club as a player then moving into a coaching role. I am sure it’s more a way in getting more money or an extra year at Collingwood. But hell his footy smarts and ball use would be a nice contrast to our other midfielders despite his age.

There’s an article in the Herald-Sun (no link available) entitled “Moneyball: Follow all the latest trade, contract, draft and coaching news across the AFL” there are some interesting items – 

• Essendon is keen to recruit Gold Coast’s Malcolm Rosas who is seen as a replacement for Irving Mosquito who has left the club.

• Adam Cerra is considered a certainty to land at Carlton with Melbourne mentioned as the only other possible suitor. However, the Demons aren’t in a position to provide a trade. Luke Jackson is out of the question and the club doesn’t have any high draft picks.

• Melbourne is keen to retain Sam Weideman who has received interest from Collingwood, North Melbourne and the Gold Coast Suns.

• Tom Lynch who was told by Adelaide that he wasn’t getting a new contract.

• Hawthorn has offered a three year deal to Fremantle’s Lachie Schultz.

Lockhart is nowhere near the player that Maynard is!

Lockhart will be lucky to be on the list. One year left max, don't see a future in him, while on the other hand Maynard would be in our best 22.

The Gold Coast is a destination that might suit Sam the best. He needs a decent run at it to regain his confidence. The problem at Melbourne is that there’s no guarantee he’ll be able to break into the team with its current set up.

I'd like to see him get another go next year after an uninterrupted preseason. The stress fracture in his hip put him on the back foot.

What have the Suns got to offer as a trade?

Their 1st Round Pick which we could use to get Mac Andrew. Means there would be a swapping of picks involved no doubt.

Where there is smoke, there is fire. Considering we don’t have draft capital for Cerra, why is our name in every article about him? What are we trying to do? Future first no doubt, but if I was Freo Id want more. I guess Hogan > Cerra and Hogan was 6 & 23.

But even if he could get it done isn't the salary cap an issue - esp moving forward?

Depends on what we let go when the season’s over. We also had a lot of guys sign long term deals, don’t know exactly how those deals are staggered within the cap.

I am one who doesn't like to see players go, from Hogan to Watts to Gysberts to Blease and recently Jack Viney and of course I have been proven wrong many times over the journey. I am biased and find ways to like our players more than others. Nothing wrong with that.

But do we need Maynard? I would have thought between Tomlinson, Smith and Hibberd (if he stays for 1 more year) and a developing Bowey we had that half back sweeper spot covered. Maynard is a good player though, white line fever, hates to get beat. I hope we put a high price on Weidemann though because I think we might need him for structure of the team more than Maynard.

I would say mentioning Tommo, Hibberd and Smith all prove we do need him in a roundabout way.

Tommo isn't currently playing and he is more your 3rd tall.

Hibbo isn't currently playing and he is the most similar to Maynard, he is becoming quite limited with his movement.

Smith will likely never play on the sort of player Maynard would, again.

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
