Farewell Luke Jackson

Technically 13 and 27 is worth more points than 6.

Except that clubs that need points already have then, and this is meant to be a shallow draft. 

Besides we can't trade pick 27, how do we get the Grundy deal done without it?

Being out of contract also limits what you can get. I wonder if we could have been a bit more clever and have had an agreement with Jackson when he was yet to make a decision and sign him up to two with a guarantee to trade him if that's what he decided (which he did). It would have given us some more leverage. I think this could have been one instance given the circumstances  where it could have worked??

The AFL would probably come out and say that we weren't playing in the true spirit of a contract.

I hear ya, just making a call on the comparative worth based on the points system.

He is now the enemy. 

Can't hold a mark,not a ruckmans boot stops and isn't particularly aggressive even though he's mobile with great ground ball abilities. 

Either over rated or a huge upside ...and Bedford's gone  probably Kossie next season if the traditional bland response from the Club is on form.

What a great house they shared must have been

I would hope so.

Right now my emotion is disappointed purely the fact that everything Tim Lamb had said from a stern and honest point of view is the opposite to what has happened. 

Probably why there's a sense of anger and frustration with Melbourne supporters it seem reading social media.

Expect any List manager to talk a big game but at the end of the day Lamb had one arm tied behind his back in terms of what we could get in return.

And who would take picks 13 and 27 for pick 6?

Grundy will come, it'll be 27 and a swap of picks I imagine if Collingwood don't accept 27. 

But that trade is easy and in the peripheral.

There are so many possibilities for us to move up, it's ridiculous.

You've just gotta trust that we've got a plan and there are still a couple of players who may go in Weed and Thomo which will bring in further picks for swapping etc.

Every year we seem to be able to hit our target of moving up the draft and on the back of our reputation of being easy to deal with, I can't see how we're not going to be able to do that given we've agreed to the Jackson trade and there are still two days left.

Pick 27 and F3 (Weid ESS)for Grundy I think.

Wed need to use Freo F1 and 13 this year to chase Cadman if the opportunity is there otherwise I’d bank F1 as well for next year. So is WC prepared to that deal with us and will Norf trump us or give their pick to GWS. Sounds like Cadman has really moved up the draft order and is a possibility for pick 1.

A pretty disappointing result after asking for an AFL draft pick in the top 10 and a first round pick.

We should have received a better result from the Dockers for Luke Jackson.

I feel we have been screwed over.

I think we should be asking for a full explanation from Tim Lamb and the rest of the MFC list management staff as we definitely didn't get a fair trade from Fremantle for a extremely talented individual who is a 2021 Melbourne Demons Premiership player who helped turn the game to defeat the Western Bulldogs and is a 2021 Norwich Rising Star Award Winner.

Just not good enough in my opinion.

Don’t blame Tim Lamb. We had a bad Poker hand to begin with. Jackson was out of contract. 
Freo should have been forced to come up with better picks to close the deal. 
They are forever Filth going forward

I'll go you one better, we need to assemble a panel of former MFC list managers and heads of the FD in the next 24 hrs who understand football and can hold Lamb accountable to his actions. In future they will also bar any trades that can't be justified, this will be known as the concil of MFC trading.

It’s done!  Finally! Bring on the draft and let’s move into 2023.

Freo got a good deal, but also gave everything that they had to give; those expecting more were always going to be disappointed.  For all the talk, it really did turn out that he was always going to Fremantle and they knew it.

Asides from letting him go to the PSD, the club did everything it could.

Not great not bad, we got everything they have picks wise from Freo so unless they trade more players for picks that was it. We could always try combining them in to pick 2 with WC but I assumed freo already tried.

100% spot on,

Whiel I agree we could only get what was on offer (thanks AFL and your terible restricctive rules) although there is a part of me that thinks every other bozo club plays hardball, we should have threatened to send him to the PSD and said pay up or F off and let him walk.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    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
