Trade and Free Agency rumours

Oh fair enough mate, apologies. 

I genuinely thought you just threw that out as wishful thinking. 

Naughton to Dees is something I would not have expected at all.

I have no idea of your history but thanks for the rumour. 

It's a weird one because we've been so bad for so long you almost don't even consider the club would be appealing for high profile players. 

If Naughton was to leave the Dogs we'd definitely be number 1 on the best options.

There is a known partying culture at the Dogs - I wonder whether that has anything to do with it.

What do people think about Darling?  sounds like he has made a few waves at WC and they may be open to trading him.

has got a big contract which i wouldn't take on, but if they would pay part of it, maybe an option.

just think we need a big marking/crashing forward.  not a Gunston type.  Waterman is another at WC who has a bit of potential but maybe not big enough.

Think the Fwds work chasing and possible of getting are:

Darling - WC 

McLean - Syd (can't get a game)

Hogan - GWS ( would fit nicely i think)

Ratugolea - Geel (can't get a game)

Georgiades - Port (has been dropped 3 times this yr)

Henry - Coll (Dropped, and pies heavily linked to McStay put him further out of favor)

These are the ones id like us to look at,  some will be wanted and contracted by their clubs but still worth a look, Lobb is the other one, but i really don't rate him and he doesn't want to ruck

First rounder that was in the Jackson/Pickett draft.

I know we certainly showed interest in his draft year. He's an outside players who's got speed and power with a clean kicking skills. 

Had a break out year last year playing wing/half back and received a rising star nomination. 

Could easily slot in on a wing or half back to utilise his kicking skills.

Been thinking the same names. 

Geogiades is the most intriguing one for me, he looks a natural forward with his leading patterns and he can mark in contests.

But is he a No 1 forward? 

Henry and McLean I just haven’t seen enough of.

Have heard a rumour from a good source - A 3 way trade involving Naughton to Demons, Jackson to Freo and Lobbe to the Dogs. Watch this space.

If we lose Jackson?

Would be great to get Naughton, would be a huge addition to our forward line.

If we can get Naughton then we're still on track to complete The Tiger Dynasty Model:

Win the premiership. 

Lose to the Pies because of a lack of key forwards. Acquire Lynch in the off season

Win the next two premierships

 

I could live with that 🤷‍♂️

Georgiades is the player I'd be targeting. JT had him in our sights on draft night, so the interest was there. But unless we change up our game plan of ignoring leading forwards, a player like Georgiades would be under utilised.

It seems like a big bodied, bash and crash style forward is what our coaching dept would want. Not many around, and they generally get banged up.

Yes, unfortunately, I agree.

If that is what we continue to value, we shouldn’t bother getting a younger player, we should just target mature bodies and [censored] them for three years like we are doing with Brown.

I watched plenty of Mclean in his draft year, he's not the answer for us.

Would be fine as a developing backup, but there's a reason he went in the rookie draft and not the national.

A fair bit behind the other key forwards of his year due to weaknesses as a player and not missed footy/injury.

My wife’s convinced that she heard the commentary team mention something about Naughton leaving during the Dogs Dockers game yesterday. I missed it and it was well before I read @chook fowler’s post.

He’d certainly improve our forward line in multiple areas. Naughton’s contested marking is much publicised, but he is mobile and good with fwd pressure as well. Could the Dogs afford to lose him with JUH & Darcy being the part of the future fwd line?

I hope you’re right! 
 

We won’t lose a game for 4 years with Naughton as our key forward

    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

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
