* "I still think Freo are up to something. They're not happy losing Cerra and another young midfielder that will take three years will not appeal to them."  — Kane Cornes

* 'Nick Daicos is a great decision maker, his foot skills are excellent, and he has the ability to go forward and hit the scoreboard.'

'He's a well-rounded young man, and stood out among his peers as someone who embraced the group.' — AFL National Talent Head Coach, Tarkyn Lockyer

** BREAKING | Geelong has traded Nathan Kreuger and pick 55 to Collingwood for pick 41.

And in one fell swoop, the Cats achieved what everyone thought was impossible. They managed to increase the average ago of their list!

* "North and Richmond appear a long way apart in any deal for Callum Coleman-Jones. The Roos’ opening move to snare the 22-year-old ruck-forward saw them offer a future third-round pick, but also asked for the Tigers’ future fourth-round pick in return." — Sam Edmund

* "Adelaide and Sydney could be haggling over Jordan Dawson right up until the trade deadline on Wednesday, October 13." — Cal Twomey.

It’s all happening today and Melbourne, which everyone thought would have a quiet time of it, is in the thick of things!

* "I've never seen anything like it, how aggressive clubs have been in targeting other clubs' assistants. There's more movement going on with coaches than players!" — Matthew Lloyd after Ash Hansen, Steven King, Brad Miller, Craig Jennings & others found new clubs. 

* "MELBOURNE pursued unrestricted FA Luke Dunstan, who is expected to formalise a 2-year deal today. Vandenberg & Jones retirements mean he's likely to be called upon at some stage. Had interest from Suns & another developing club, but 'play the kids' threat there saw him pick Dees" — Sam Edmund

* "I don't think the Will Brodie to Fremantle move is going to happy either."  —  Sam Edmund

[Not sure if he means "happy" or "happen" or whether it matters]

* "I think he's a chance at a rookie spot. If he's fit, he's got something to add to a side for sure."  — Matt Rendell on Aaron vandenBerg

* Deal done. Jeremy Finlayson will be a Port Adelaide player next year. The Power will give up a future third round pick.  — Sam Edmund

* "Geelong is interested, there's a number of clubs interested at the moment. I think he wants to be in Melbourne to be near Eddie Betts, who had a huge influence on him at Adelaide." — Sam Edmund on Tyson Stengle

* "I wouldn't say negotiations are as close as what us and Carlton are with Cerra at the moment. But I expect the deal to get done." — Peter Bell on the Jordan Clark deal

* DONE DEAL | Luke Dunstan has joined Melbourne as an unrestricted free agent.

* Four way deal for draft picks

• Bulldogs get picks 23, 44, 45

• Melbourne get picks 17, 37, 47

• Adelaide gets Melb future first round, 33, 75

• St Kilda gets 62, 66, Adel future fourth round — Callum Twomey

Lots happening although the effect appears to me to be underwhelming. This is because we’re not seeing any big names changing clubs, presumably because of the effect that loss of revenue as a result of Covid19 is forcing clubs to rein in their spending. Carlton continues to be the most active club in terms of players coming in with Adam Cerra the biggest name to change clubs (although do I need to point out that he only polled 1 Brownlow vote this year while a certain midfielder with initials LD who polled 11 votes from 12 games is also in the group of players with new homes).

* "Richmond have seven picks under 47, they're in an interesting phase. Do they go again or build for the future? With Tarrant coming in, I think they do a bit of both." — Matthew Lloyd

* "Will Brodie was a dominant junior who hasn't been able to go on with it. I'm really pleased for him, it's a lifeline I wasn't sure he'd get. " — Lloyd re Brodie's likely move to Fremantle

* DONE DEAL The Dockers send future second and fourth round picks to the Suns for Will Brodie, 19, 61 and 69.
 
* BREAKING | Adam Cerra is a Blue! Fremantle receives pick six and a future third round pick.

* DONE DEALS | Carlton has traded Sam Petrevski-Seton to West Coast for pick 52. That pick was then on-traded to the Western Bulldogs for Lewis Young — per multiple reports.
* Collingwood set to move on its pick 22. The Pies set to do a deal with Fremantle for pick 27 and a future third-rounder. That looms as a circuit-breaker for the Jordan Clark discussions — Callum Twomey  

* BREAKING: "There is a lot going on between the Fremantle footy club and the GWS footy club, over a player well known to both of those clubs, that player being Rory Lobb about a potential return to the Giants." — Damian Barrett

Jeffrey Gibb Kennett’s cryptic call to Hawthorn members to essentially close their eyes and think of the club no matter what happens has struck a few nerves among the cognoscenti today. However, after yesterday’s busy day of news and activity, there have been no new done deals and, as the week comes to an end, there are no fish biting on Jeff’s line.

Today might well go down as the day of argy bargy gone wrong - it’s not a good day for state premiers (speaking politically, not about AFL premiers).

* "The haggle between Geelong and Fremantle for Jordan Clark is Pick 19 or 22. You'd think 22 should see it out and we can all move on." — Matthew Lloyd

* "People expected Luke to go to a club at the bottom of the ladder and play games, but he's backed himself. He admits he has deficiencies, but he's excited to get in there and prove people wrong." —  Robbie D'Orazio (Connors Sports) re Luke Dunstan

* "All roads for Peter Ladhams lead to Sydney. Hickey will remain the number 1 ruck, Ladhams will be the forward-ruck, and he'll bridge the age-gap between Franklin and Logan McDonald." — Sam Edmund

* "Hawthorn’s desperation to trade one of its stars for a top draft pick extends to coach Sam Mitchell ringing rival clubs himself in a bid to spark interest. Hawks getting increasingly desperate given there is so far no takers for the likes of Mitchell, O'Meara and Wingard." — Sam Edmund

* "Adelaide and Hawthorn may be locked in a fierce battle to move up the draft order to draft Finn Callaghan." — Matt Rendell 

* "I think there'd be plenty of suitors in Melbourne for him."  — Steven Silvagni on Rory Lobb

* "No one said to Jeff yesterday - ‘You need to put out a letter to members,’ - he just didn't need to do it. He could've just waited until the close of the trade period, but that's the way that Jeff Kennett operates." — Damian Barrett commenting on you guessed it.

North have paid far too much for a kid who has played 9 games in 4 years. Absolutely letting Richmond have their cake and eat it to re: Chol compensation.

If I was North I would have said Tarrant & Pick 38 or we'll take Coleman-Jones in the PSD.

In what is turning out to be a lacklustre trade period, Trade Radio is struggling to come up with very much of interest at all.

* They have only two or three untouchables, that's how badly they view their own list and how aggressive they're going to be. " — Kane Cornes is expecting more to play out at Hawthorn

 * "There's a communal view of who the top group is, but the ranking of that group is in the eye of the beholder. So I wouldn't be surprised if more clubs look to move up the draft. " — Cal Twomey

* DONE DEAL | Patrick Lipinski is traded from the Bulldogs to Collingwood for pick 43.

* "They've been geniuses this trade period, they've got everything done and got the points in for Daicos." — Matt Rendell on Collingwood

* "I certainly think (Hill's trade request) is tied into the Rory Lobb stuff, same management group so there's a little bit going on behind the scenes," — Stephen Silvagni 

* "It wasn't a coincidence," — Rendell

* "It seems inevitable now that North Melbourne won't bid and take Horne-Francis at one." — Damian Barrett

Ho, hum …

* "Adelaide, Carlton, Collingwood, Fremantle, Melbourne and North are the only teams so far that have improved their list and outlook for 2022." — Kane Cornes

* "Watch this space on the Hawks, they are trying to get things done too" — Matthew Lloyd

* "I like the combination of Lycett and Ladhams, I was surprised when Port Adelaide suggested he look elsewhere." — 

Adam Cooney

* The Length of the Trade Period: "There is no perfect length. No matter whether it is one week or three, things can get left until the last minute. I do think a slightly longer period than a week is necessary to allow the dominoes to start falling. At the end of the day you’ll always be going to the final bell. It goes in cycles. Some years where there are big names on the market and others where there aren’t. You have big names under contract trying to move and other times you have wanting to move big names out.  It does go in cycles". — AFL Players Association stakeholder relations general manager Brett Murphy

So they are geniuses for getting enough picks for a father son and trading for Nathan Kreuger and Patrick Lipinski, two fringe players?

Seriously Rendell is a complete [censored] and it makes me angry he gets paid for this dribble when people in Melbourne have lost their jobs due to Covid.

Also completely glosses over the fact they traded out pick 2. With North now likely not to bid on Daicos, they could have used it to choose another player before a Daicos bid which in turn would have required even less points to match.

I get that's more of a 2021 onfield performance issue and they would have been expecting to finish much higher, but any other club would be crucified for that deal coming back to bite them. "Geniuses" lol.

There’s more to come but can you pick the ODD SPOT?

* "You've got the best coach in Australian being paid $900,000 to have a holiday in America before he comes home and coaches another team. I can't get my head around how Hawthorn have fallen apart like this" — Kane Cornes re Alastair Clarkson

* DONE DEAL | The deal to make Jordan Dawson a Crow has been lodged, with the Swans receiving Melbourne's future 1st round pick. — Daniel Cherny

* "Just like their interest in Chad Wingard, Greater Western Sydney has explored interest in Luke Breust over the last day. Would similarly have been willing to use pick 13 in a deal, but like Wingard, Breust has been reluctant to move from Hawks." — Cal Twomey 

* "I can't see it happening at the moment, I think there's too much difference in the valuation from North Melbourne and St Kilda."  — Riley Beveridge on the Tristan Xerri

I have no idea why the media is doing it but every time there’s reference made to the future first round pick Melbourne traded to get selection 17 in this year’s draft is always referred to as “Melbourne’s” whereas other traded future are almost never discussed with reference to the club the pick in question came from. Is this an indication that supporters of other clubs are in awe of us?

I think it is being done to give a reference point, to allow a reasoned guess as to what actual pick might eventuate from it.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend).

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees.

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
