No matter what happens with Dogga, I’d still be keen to ask the Swans about the availability of Haydn McLean.  Big bodied 197cm Forward/2nd Ruck. Good goalkicker, good mark.  Behind Franklin, McDonald and Reid as a forward. Behind Hickey and Ladhams as a ruck. Would appeal to us and brings physical presence.  

i really like this, could be a very T-Mac style player, not flashy and plays within his limits and provides a good option.

Haven't seen a whole lot of him but I do vaguely remember him at Sandy Dragons and he could really clunk a mark!

before Logan Mcdonald and Amarti, i remember him being a very serviceable player.  if we can get him for bugger all and not pay a lot he would be a great get, and if a young kid passes him well that's what we want too

What about a nibble at Paddy Dow from Carlton to fatten our midfield depth chart?

The HUN reporting that Carlton are looking at off loading a former high draft pick for salary space so I can only assume it's him.

Last year he almost got there as a realised talent but for whatever reason can't get a game this year (that reason being that he's probably not good enough in Voss's eye)

Finn Callaghan would be a nice addition, has a booming kick. What's his contested marking like? At 192cm he could provide a nice marking option down the wing to help out Max.

Haven’t really seen him in pack marking situations, but has good hands overhead does pretty well in one v one marking contests. Can play a role forward.

I hope we look to top up our list with some veterans who are flag chasing like Goldstein, Cunnington, Boak, Robbie Gray, Breust and/or Gunston. They aren't key forwards but they could be the difference in 2023.

As much as we need a key forward to replace Ben Brown, he has two more years on his contract and the top key forwards will cost an enormous amount in salary cap space and picks. I think we should be looking at getting another gun small forward either in the draft or trade.

But this other player that is leaving is giving you genuine distress.

This player you can’t remember.

I would rather Brodie Kemp.

Not a Premiership player, as was quoted in the post.

And he also stated that it was three "good" players. No offence to Bedford, but I hardly think that anyone would classify him as good.

we want picks.. minimum 2 first rounders. Of course we want a Tall forward, but ideally from Freo we want minimum 2 first round picks this year.

will we?

i would've thought we'd want to replace a best 22 player with another or more - dunno if (likely) late first round picks will get the job done

that said, i could see us getting three first round picks if footscray give up their 2021 first rounder for lobb and flagmantle paying a huge chunk of his 2023 salary

GIVE: jackson + 2022 second round pick
GET: footscray 2022, freo 2022 and 2023 first rounders

from there we'd be in a good position to package one - or two? - of those plus our own 2023 first rounder to get further up in the 2022 draft board

Our midfield depth is a media myth

We're too light for rotations (assuming brayshaw never plays in the guts again)

Our second tier mids in Sparrow and Harmes are among the worst in the comp 

Rate Jordon but he's a utility sort you can put anywhere and is unlikely to be a starting centebounce midfielder 

That wouldn't be the same Harmes that set the Deez on the road to glory in the third quarter of last year's Granny would it?

It's like any player that has had a singular positive impact on grand final is completely untouchable for the rest of their career.. fmd.

I'm still gobsmacked Steven Armstrong hasn't been inducted into the Hall of Fame for his 2 minute heroic in the 2006 Grand Final.

Sorry you had to repeat yourself  @dazzledavey36, I heard you loud and clear the first time, sometimes subtlety doesn’t quite work over the net 👌

    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
