Trade and Free Agency rumours



Recommended Posts

Gunston would make sense if we didn't have Fritsch. 

But we do. 

And if people think Gunston would replace Brown or T Mac, they're kidding themselves. Because the bulk of his goals come from marks on leads. And we simply don't have the midfield to provide that. I know that's Ben Brown's wheelhouse as well, but his advantage is his height at 200cm and arm reach to bring ball to ground. Gunston can't do that. Imagine having Fritsch, Gunston and Ben Brown all playing. The ball would be run out of our 50 before you could blink. 

The only way I see it happening is of Goodwin made a complete overhaul of the way we enter our forward 50 and adds players with skill through the midfield as well as on the half forwardline. 

But I also don't see that happening.

Where has all this Naughton talk come from? Is it just wishful thinking or was there rumors in media or on footy forums? He would compliment our forward line perfectly with his size and aerial ability. If we could turn Jackson into Naughton it would be the biggest coup in recent memory!

Hallelujah.  Maybe like many he thinks Beverage is a weird grumpy old man.

Contracted Adelaide defender Fischer McAsey has been touted to join Carlton at season's end, with the Blues looking to bolster their key defensive stocks.

McAsey, an East Brighton product, is currently signed to the Crows until the end of next year after turning his back on reported interest from Victorian clubs early into last season to re-sign on a two-year deal.

 

Keen suitors in the 21-year-old would be tempted to ask the question of McAsey given his current placing in Matthew Nicks' pecking order, having not featured at senior level since 2020.

Pick 6 in 2019 and at 198cm.  Must be a real bust if he cant get a game with the Crows

With that height and presumably a few pre-seasons, wouldnt be the worst thing we could look at. Were we ever into him last year?

Just read news clip from leigh Montagna about st kilda trading out some older players to reset their list.

maybe we could be interested in a few players ie Tim Membrey, Jack Billings or jade Gresham for our forward line

Membrey maybe fills a need. They will keep Gresham. They have a lot of meh players

Sloppy headline on the SEN website today. I'm sure SEN would love it if every player in the competition were to be linked to a trade. It could be talked about endlessly. But the headline is not quite what it seems.

Fancy staff at Craig Hutchison managed SEN being unable to read and write.

We could build a dynasty at Casey with some of those names.

I read a headline this morning: "St. Kilda Should Trade Stars". Almost choked on me cornies. 

you'd think, considering that their only genuine star is their captain, that there's not gonna be any stars on the trading block

They are the the epitome of a club with either crucial key pieces or deadweight. No trade bait.

After watching our game vs Richmond on Anzac Eve, I'm convinced Max King would fit right in.

And what about our Collingwood game? 😉

Talked to someone I believe today, and they said a few interesting things, coming from a Pies perspective. Firstly, they didn’t think Dogga was that good. Said he was ok. Secondly, they thought Grundy would be worth at least a 1st rounder, mostly because of the salary he is on. Also said if Dogga was worth 2 1sts and I was saying I didn’t think Grundy was worth one 1st, that wasn’t realistic. I talked about it being a salary dump & he agreed the Pies would be paying $ for him to move (& he grumbled about Treloar). But he still remained firm about the 1st rounder. Hopefully he is wrong, wouldn’t want to give up a first for Grundy!

I don't believe Grundys trade value is in any way connected to his salary, when a club is offering to pay 1/3 of his salary for 5 years they can't demand much in a trade, essentially we're doing them a favor. 

they need Grundy to go to sign their other targets and re-shape the list the way Fly wants, i reckon a second rounder gets it done

if we end up with two firsts for dog, plus extras, i can completely understand one of them being moved for grundy

I made the same argument about a second rounder, but he wasn’t having any of it. He did mention wanting the money to go after one of the GWS mids though, can’t remember who it was though

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
