Trade and Free Agency rumours

I disagree - he has excellent pace and a big tank. You'll see him in the top 5 or so endurance runners at the club, as well as the fastest top 5. His big let down is his kicking, in spite of him kicking a few ripping goals.

Having a game tank for 4 Quarters is a different thing, being under pressure and executing. He has excellent speed that will suit the big grounds, but at the moment he flashes in and out of games. 
His field kicking will sharpen up when his endurance matures

We'll have to agree to disagree. I have no problem with his tank, now or down the track. He flashes in and out of games because he's a small forward, like our others do. He's learning and improving how to impact games. I think the only thing that'll stop him being a serious MFC player is his kicking. I have faith in Chocco to make inroads.

He has played about 4 games and shows a lot of promise. 
Why would he ask for a trade?

Because he is in his 4th year and only played 4 games.  He may think he deserves more opportunity.  It happens all the time at premiership sides.

I dont want him to go,  but reality is he might think he is deserving of a best 22 spot.

Always about Bedford. He has raw talent that needs to be trained, would be very disappointed if he didn’t become a serious MFC Player in future. 

Last week seemed uncomfortable in the crowded play/ pressure game, needs to get stronger and develop his running attributes to burn of his opponent and get into more dangerous positions like a Charlie Cameron.

He's showing promise but on last weeks form he hardly impacted.

Richmond picked up Lynch as a FA at about this stage in their window… exactly what we need but sadly I can’t see where a top-tier, free agent key position player is coming from

I think there maybe a small exodus from Norf and GWS.

That will make Heppell, Hopper and Hooper, surely a law firm in the making

Not as good as the 72 Swans with Dewey, Cheatem, and Howe…

But that usually happens to players that have plateaued, Bedford is still learning a very important role, so i would be very disappointed if he looked for other opportunities

It usually happens to people who think they aren't getting opportunities. Il be disappointed to.  But if a club comes to him and says we will give $450 for 3 years and your starting Mid.  I recon he would entertain that

Surely if Jackson leaves then we are right into Zuhaar! 

Said this in another thread, but I would absolutely go after him without hesitation. 

He's a bull of a player and would add a bit of spunk and X factor to our forward half.

Posted (edited)

Article from afl.com highlights rival interest in Deven Robertson, who was once the target for demon recruiters before being selected with the first pick in the 2nd round of the 2019 draft by the Lions.

"THE STRENGTH of Brisbane's midfield has seen ball-winner Deven Robertson come under rival interest ahead of the off-season.

And he's among a number of Lions who have been in and out of the side this season who have garnered attention from other clubs.

Robertson is contracted for next year at the Lions, but that hasn't stopped clubs enquiring about the West Australian as a trade option after five senior appearances this season."

 

Edit: sorry for font and spacing, cut and pasting messed it up and hard to adjust on mobile.

We don’t need inside mids, so Bruhn and Taranto are not required for us. 
 

Obviously it’s all about keeping our top talent together during our window, looking to improve our bottom 5-6 if we can

You overlook the forward role Taranto plays snd he would only get better with classy mids and forwards  around him. 

Mids that specialise up forward and add goals to your score are worth gold/s !!!!

If Taranto, Hooper and Bruhn leave you might as well close up the gates at GWS

Be warned Yze

i mean a Green, Greene, Coniglio, Ward, Whitfield, Kelly is still a top 8 midfield

Ward might retire? Still some quality players in the midfield. Not much down back or fwd. and Kelly & Whitfield should be dominating right now and they are far from it. Something smells there

Ward at the end, Greene is a brain fade away from being locked up in a Thai jail, Coniglio is on a $1m to be HFF, and Whitfield should be a milk carton he goes missing so often. 

Kelly and Green…

Bruhn = 75% chance a #demons23 player 

The most underwhelming reaction to being drafted, ever:

Tim Taranto, Jacob Hopper, Bobby Hill and Tanner Bruhn have all been floated as candidates to leave the Giants, but salary cap issues and a willingness from the club to “reset” amid a mini-rebuild should reportedly see all four leave.

Richmond and Collingwood are among the Victorian clubs have shown interest in Taranto, while Adelaide, Richmond and Geelong have been linked to Hopper.

Small forward Hill requested a trade to Essendon last year but is most likely to join the Magpies, while Bruhn is looking at a move back to Victoria, with the Cats thought to be keen on the Geelong Falcons product.

gws-giants-exodus

The price they pay for giving million dollar contracts to a handful of players most of whom are not pulling their weight.

It is a mystery why GWS keep drafting midfielders when they don't have room for them in the side or cap space a few years later.  They try to play them in other positions, the kids don't like it and go home.  Rinse and repeat!  Meanwhile they are deficient in key positions.

Why would we go after an inside mid when Brayshaw can't get a game there.

Bruhn will help our sal cap but we have a bunch of players competing for that spot and a few more yet to debut.

    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.

    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.

    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
