Trade and Free Agency rumours

If we are only using 2 picks I would think they will be very high picks. I expect us to be aggressive in trying to get our trading done early to give us the best possible chance of moving up the board. 
I wonder if the JHF to Port has made it more urgent to get our deals done. I assume North will want at least one pick at the very pointing end of this years draft to be part of the deal. Given how difficult top 7 picks are to trade for JHF trade could make the market a lot more competitive. 

I think we will use more than 2 picks.

Would have preferred LJ stayed with us and we wouldn’t have had too go down the Grundy path. Sooooo what would happen if dockers and eagle’s cannot come up with a fair deal and LJ decides to come back to us, because he wants us too get a fair deal I hope, he’s got Kates phone number😁,can he do that or does he have to go thru the draft? Far fetched I know, has it happened in the past, I cannot recall it happening. Go Dees

Bedford, Hunt, Jackson, Rosman +/- Baker out.

Grundy in. Chandler promoted? 

That’s 2-3 main list spots as is. And 3 rookie spots.

Baker, Hibberd and Melksham could all be redrafted as rookies rather than main listers so there’s plenty of flexibility to add more players or lose more players.

I’d go to the draft with at least 2 main picks and a 3rd pick that we can use or not use depending on the strength of the draft

I’m assuming he can still sign a contract with us.

Just as context the points value of #13, Norfs comp pick #20 and Freos future first is at least 3k in total. That’s assuming Freo win the GF (unlikely) so it’s possibly more.

So we can make a play for just about any pick in the first round if that is what Freo end up offering us. But using all three picks for 1 player seems like a  huge gamble.  

Much rather ( assuming we get the above picks for LJ), we try to use #13 and Freo’s F1 and make a play for  #5 from Adelaide or #4 from Essendon.  

You feel like both clubs will need to bottom out some more and given the talent next year could end up with two early first rounders.

I thought the same 

Hunt went for effectively “absolutely nothing in return” !!! 

It worse as Jones is 22 in February.

5 years older than Hunt and he retired of his own volition, yet Carlton now get a higher pick than us for Hunt.

We lose Hunt who played 40 games in the last two years and Carlton get more for a bloke who was retired for a year.

It's an absolute joke.

They got what the rules at the time prescribed.

We might have got overs in true value and the Hawks unders in value, but that was the formula.

Now we don't know how the decision is made.

That said, do you agree with my point?

Contracts probably similar, both 3rd round compo. Honestly this isn't the kind of thing that gets me worked up ...

Zaine Cordy going to the Saints.

Wonder if Dogs will look at Tomlinson.

Don't think they'll need another backman after getting Liam Jones.

They don't have much else.

Probably only Keath, who has been injured a fair bit.

My old man just messaged me to say apparently Peter Wright has requested to be traded and that we're interested.

Has anyone heard this or has the old fella gone off the deep end?

Cornes isn't backing down on the Kozzie rumour (which he made up). He now believes Kozzie will move to an S.A team in 2023 saying what Lamb said yesterday was 'a lie'.

Just a way of him saving face, it buys him 12 months. He's a prat.

Name some  outside Mids ( other than draftees) who are avslisble in trade at the moment than WSWS.

Realise finishing is very important but the ability to get the ball and run is also super important!

    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.
