Melb - Weid + 34 to suns

Suns - 22 + 43 to melb

Melb - 22+42+43 to dogs (1618 points compared to 1161 for Darcy)

Dogs - 14 to melb

Melb - 14 + 2022 1st (18) to Freo

Freo - Cerra to Melb

 

Nice idea. Can't trade 3 first round picks in 3 years. That might stop it? 

$s shouldn't be a problem as he will be taking less than Freo offered to get to Melbourne and a club in contention.

The one thing I know about the MFC recruiting team is that we're targeted and strategic. 

If we're going after Cerra and have the money for him (which we clearly do) then we'll find a way to get him across. 

Might involve losing a couple of lesser players (Weid, Sparrow etc) but we don't go out on a shooting spree like Norf. 

If Cerra wants to come to us, we'll find a way.

From Sam McClure article.

While Cerra is said to be extremely impressed with Melbourne’s presentation, he is also excited at the proposition of playing alongside Carlton duo Patrick Cripps and Sam Walsh.

Carlton propaganda. Disregard.

Getting rid of Sparrow? Crazy. Great game against Brisbane and will only get better.

my word, the reporting on this is bad, even for footy journos.  basically tweet/print any random thing they think of

We won't get it done without Jackson going to Freo.  what utter nonsense!   we don't have a first round pick - we didnt the last couple of years going in to the draft either did we?  but look at Kozzi and Bowey.

If we want him enough and he wants us enough, we can get it done.  he would have to accept unders from us though.  would be a massive, the kid is a future gun

And then we have to pay him ........probably overs .

Probably Nathan Jones & Nev Jetta are close to retiring so that may give us $$ room, but.......Jackson, Rivers ,Jordon, Bowey ,Sparrow start to move into bigger kids $$$

We spend our time developing younger players e.g. Chandler, Sparrow, ANB, Jordon, Bowey , Rivers, Jackson and then just throw our development away for a "might be".

Isn't it amazing that a player at another club is always better than what we have got . Our Midfield is the last area needing strengthening. ( Our 3rd best midfielder is playing on a wing, our ex Captain has modified his game to play compatible football inside our structure)

Given the age profile (and upside ) of our current list there is a lot of improvement to come and this GROUP is compatible

Some sensible observations here. Would be nice to get Cerra. But not at the expense of what we already have. In the meantine, there is a premiership to be won.

Us Melb supporters are so use to discussing potential trades rather than playing finals this time of year, that we have fallen into our usual habits. 

How we go Fri, and then hopefully in a fortnight, might also have an impact on players wanting to come to us.

True, but gut feel is it wouldn't be draft picks we would trade anyway.

Fair bit to play out in this story IMO.

Surely we aren't going through all this effort to have a meeting with him and not think we can pull something out of the hat.

Yep, I reckon he's coming.

Can’t stand hyperbole like this!


So, by this logic, Fremantle wouldn’t accept Clayton Oliver for Cerra?  How about Petracca?  Maybe we could package Rivers and Kossie and throw in a first rounder??

Jon Ralph trying to fill his Twitter profile with definitive statements to make it appear that he is ‘in the know’.  On reality, he sounds like a fool.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
