Trade and Free Agency rumours

Clearly happy for Hunt to move on and disappointed in Bedford requesting a trade. 

Weideman won't be traded which makes sense as we need a back up ruck/forward option.

Loved the comment about "there's first round picks and there's first round picks." Rammed home the message Jackson is a generational talent which gives me confidence that we will come away from this trade with at least 1 x top 10 pick. How that happens remains to be seen.

Was reassuring after Jason Taylor got a little bit creative trying to sell Bowey and Laurie as first round picks when we took them in the 20's

Got to feel gutted for north, as much as they annoyed me on field over the years they don’t deserve this. With us loosing Jackson and them Francis, and us maybe Pickett next year you have to seriously wonder why you would bother risking top picks on SA and WA players going forward. Jackson couldn’t have asked for a better culture than what he had in his time, Understudy to Gawn, Grand final, rising star. What more could u ask for.

Mummy and daddy.

My take from the Tim Lamb interview is that we’re going to get Grundy to fill the void left by Jackson, and otherwise we’ll be backing in the same squad for premiership glory next year. He basically ruled Corbett out and we haven’t been linked with anyone else. I know there’s always the discussion around us “not leaking” and having hidden targets but I can’t remember any of our trades not being known by the media in the past several years apart from Pat McKenna which came from nowhere. 
 

I find it a little frustrating (surely Gunston for free would have helped us) but these guys did an incredible job assembling a premiership list so will have to back their judgment.

DEAL IN THE WORKS FOR GRUNDY

COLLINGWOOD will push for a top-25 pick for ruckman Brodie Grundy, whose move from the Magpies to Melbourne is growing closer.

The Demons have been Grundy's tipped landing spot for weeks as Collingwood considered a trade for the big man, who has five years left to run on his deal.

A selection early in the second round is likely to pave the way for Grundy's move from the Pies to the Demons, where he will partner fellow All-Australian Max Gawn in a two-headed ruck department.

Collingwood is expected to pay a meaningful portion of the remaining five years of Grundy's contract, but when the Grundy trade is completed could also depend on what the Demons get back for Jackson.

Apologies if this has already been brought up but, Tarryn Thomas potentially exploring options according to Sam Edmund.

Anyone have any insight on him? Pick 8 and only 22 years old still so fits well in our age bracket, have no idea what you’d give up for someone in his position given he’s had a bit of a turbulent year

Don’t want to Paint it Black but he is clearly running Out of Time. So to Start Me Up, he may need Mother’s Little Helpers. Which given the league’s stance on recreational and performance drugs would leave him Shattered. But in the end  It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But l Like it) !

When the whip comes down Mother’s Little Helpers it could be The Last Time for any Satisfaction

6 minutes ago, whatwhat say what said:

...as first round picks...

True technically, but multiple matched bids ahead of them, so neither was in the top 20 players of the draft class. There’s a huge difference between a high first round pick like a Petracca or Oliver, and a pick in the 20s like Bowey or Laurie. If we’re losing Jackson, we need to replace him with gun top end talent, not mid rangers. IMO neither Bowey or Laurie have shown they’ll even make it long term at this stage, let alone be players who impact games.

They won’t do it with 2 of course but they’re open to split it to get it done. Get a top ten pick if WC split, + FF + 26 for Luke and 42.ABDE49EE-0FFD-4A8F-B486-E10A08043BE8.thumb.png.11930647f6a569ddfa2c700647cac6f0.png

Funny they won't give up pick two. But if he was in the national draft he would surely go 2 or 3 after Ashcroft

If we can turn Hunt and Bedford into Grundy I'll be stoked

TT was clearly out of sorts at North this year. The form he showed in the 2nd half of 2021 was outstanding. He's a perfect fit for us.

If Harmes has been told that he can look elsewhere, I hope that means that we have TT in our sights.

When he said about the coaches being creative with what’s on our list for our forward line I interpreted that as 2 words.

Harrison.
Petty.

Interesting that Tim Lamb referred to us being in "Win Now" mode (or something similar).  That's obviously no surprise but I wonder how much it effects our trading / drafting strategy.  Obviously Grundy very much fits that but if we are after a top 10 pick then who realistically will be ready to go next year?  

Would they pick based on who is going to be the best player or who is going to fit our needs best in the next 3-5 years (but might not have the ceiling of others that could take longer).

Harmes nearly left 2 years ago but time ran out to do trade. Cracks the sads when not playing in midfield  Was furious when Viney came back from injury last year and he went back again.  yes you will not believe me  but I know someone.    Thanks for your service Harmesy  see ya

Yep, that put me at ease knowing that not just accepting unders for Jacko.

A top 10 pick is definitely a starting point.

Good question. Sparrow and Jordon can both play inside mid. Where is Gus going to play? 

From Casey, maybe they will try to groom Chandler and Laurie as midfield/forwards.

I'd be sad to see Harmes leave.

By the looks of things we will be shedding a fair amount of salary during this Trade Period? 

Does anyone have an idea on the value of contracts that Jackson, Hunt, Bedford and Harmes would add up to? I assume they'd equate to over the $1 - 1.2M mark which begs the question who are we bringing in other than Grundy? Or are we looking to make space for a couple of contract renewals?

    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.
