Its our right but we are so keen to post our 3c worth it's become a free for all rubbish topic.  We don't  need to read most of the offerings as they are off the mark anyway. 

There's some irony in this post

I wouldn't be surprised if West Coast are the one's that have made the God father offer and have been the team he's going to the entire time. 

Like when Buddy left the Hawks

I think we are all up the Creek without a paddle and the thread is giving me the Schitts.

I heard all the hype about that show and watched the lot thinking "it's got to get better"

Lockdown was a strange world

This is what’s really going on. And why we are so unfussed.

We will walk in pick 2 and probably something else and never look back and Jackson will take the giant wads of cash freed up by the aging list there.

That's why I've been wanting North to finish last. Just in case. Teams pretty much never trade pick 1, but might trade pick 2

West Coast would do it anyway I reckon. They’ll have tons of cap space and it kick starts their rebuild with a known quantity.

 

Freo just can’t get it done

Trading out pick 1 would be a fair bit harder sell to their supporters than trading out pick 2 imo. Pick 1 hasn't been traded away in a fair while

Adelaide -rankine 

G coast - harmes,anb, pick 2 & pick 4 second round pick Adelaide 

melb - Ben king second round pick west coast 

west coast - Jackson 

we have plenty of small half forward types in vfl to cover anb and harmes and frees up some cap 

maybe Gold Coast use a pick on established mid like Tom Mitchell 

would u swap Ben king for jackson?

Educated guess or do you have some solid info to share?

Fingers crossed you are right.

Why would Gold Coast want Harmes, ANB or be interested in Tom Mitchell.

And if I'm GC, there's no way I'm trading Ben King for Jackson. King has committed to the club. He's worth Jackson plus a 1st round pick.

Sorry, no, on a reread that sounded much more authoritative than it should. I have no idea. Just seems to fit better all round.

Whatever happens in regards to trades, it’s clear from tonite and most of this year that as good as Jackson is and could be in the future, he is not dominant in the ruck, or as a forward or as a follower that warrants us going any harder than what we have - let him go and maximise the return while we can

Serious question, exactly what is Jackson contributing to the team at the moment? He's getting flogged in the ruck, can't take a mark and doesn't kick goals. He wants to get paid a fortune to run around like a midfielder, but he's getting 12 largely mediocre touches a week. Not having a third ruck on the list is a major list management failure.

Agree at the moment he isn’t worth a fraction of what we hear is on offer. Is the knee injury hampering him? Maybe but Freo must be wondering if he is what they need. Ruckman take years to mature and learn the caper. He is well down on form and contributes nothing up forward

And if he is a midfielder some of his decision making going forward was terrible. Could of gone short a few times instead of bombing forward, got lucky with the one fritsch mark

Might be a champion in the future but right now he is an ordinary second ruck. Numerous second ruckman around the competition are producing a lot more. I reckon the Weid contributes as much when he has been second ruck.

    A LITTLE MAGIK by George On The Outer

    With the game against Carlton all but lost, there was little chance the Demons could pull this one from out of the fire … with a little bit of magiK!   MagiK with a “K” in the form of Kysaiah Pickett, who miraculously managed to get foot to ball in the dying seconds to secure the win for the Demons. Along with plenty of magiK from Jake MelKsham during the game. Marking the ball while lying on his back, dancing through a bevy of Carlton backmen to score and then marking among three tall

    GREY INTO WHITE by KC from Casey

    The rains came as predicted to Casey Fields on Sunday along with a fair lashing of wind that made for the type of game that you expect in such inhospitable conditions - a grim, dour festival of scrappy football made for strong-bodied sides such as the undefeated competition leaders. And so it came to pass that the Casey Demons were able to trample over Carlton’s VFL side in the final half of their Round 21 match up to maintain their undefeated record for 2022. The victory under grey skies w

    DOWNFALL? by Whispering Jack

    Half a season ago, Saturday night’s Round 22 match up between Melbourne and Carlton would have been looked upon as a mouthwatering contest to determine positions at the top of the AFL mountain in the lead up to an exiting finals series for both clubs. However, this once much-anticipated contest is today considered almost as a consolation event between two of the most disappointing teams in the competition. At least the Blues have some sort of excuse for their downfall — they have been dogge

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major
