Trade and Free Agency rumours

Could we be bold and make a play for Logan McDonald who has just been dropped for a GF?

Another WA boy,  but might be a vulnerable time to strike??

Rumour alert: Liam Henry is in melbourne hanging out with Clarry!!!!

I think that's because he's mates with Kossie. Would make a dynamic duo with him.

20 years old, re-signed a few months back, dropped for one game (albeit a Grand Final)... Not gonna happen.

What is the source of this “Rumour alert”?

My niece was at a pub in Hawthorn last week and several footballers walked in - she's a mad Pies' fan, but recognised Clarry, Bowey, Ginny, Bianco, Brown and a few others. Just having a few quiet ones...

Including Henry?

Henry JVR Spargo

Fritsch Max Kozzy

That forward half with the addition of ANB, Chandler and/or Ben Brown is getting more dangerous.

Long Island is a great hidden spot.

How about Mornington Peninsula vs Geelong & Bellarine Peninsula!

I'm still thinking you get a slightly larger home maybe even suburb in Moggs Creek (or 30 mins from Geelong) vs what you get in Melbourne for the same money!

Cats definitely have a salary cap advantage, and I'm standing behind my convictions!!

Logan McDonald or Hayden McLean - either be great, and fills a need

He got dropped because he didn’t touch it for a half and hasn’t looked any good apart from when he played on Tomlinson and Lever.

The Swans are developing him slowly and he’ll be ok, but he’s not really the answer. Reckon he might come in to the 22 still as well. Not sure Reid’s across the line either

Or Larkey at North if Clarkson can't disentangle himself from the Hawks racism report. Will throw North back into chaos which we should try to take advantage of (i know. I'm a horrible person)

I blame the game plan not Jordan. I observe players across the team doing the same thing, so it must be coaches instructions. I thought that was the central problem in our loss to the swans in the finals. 

I agree. 

Eddie Langdon’s bounce totals took a massive dive this year, he clearly wasn’t running it nearly as much either.

Theres 2 big factors:
1. No bounce off half back. The winger should get the ball via hands or in so much space they have to take it on.

2. No Tom McDonald at chf hitting up.

Not to say that JJ doesn’t have to improve. You can’t be as risk adverse as he was this year. But he was a product of a slow system.

JJ’s run and link by hand was very strong in 2021. He’d often be involved multiple times in the same chain.

Tomlinson did a medical at the Bulldogs according to Mark Stevens.

With salary dumping all the rage at the moment, it will be interesting to see how this plays out if he does move. Do we pay the dogs with a later pick to take his full salary on? Is it that much of a burden that we would give up draft capital? Or do we pay 100-200k of his contract and get a token 3rd or 4th round pick? Or given the dearth of Key Defenders on the market and that he's contracted, do we drive a hard bargain and try and extract a 2nd round pick from the dogs?

Our key defender depth will be whittled down to Turner and Joel Smith in the absence of any replacements which has me concerned.

Great fit for the Doggies. Fingers crossed this happens for all involved.

1. Demons get salary cap space and no doubt an extra third round pick.

2. Bulldogs get a KPD that they desperately need.

3. Tomlinson gets a chance to be best 22 in a team who will challenge.

Perhaps bulldogs pick 37. Lobb will most likely require their 2nd round pick, 29, and their next one is a pick in the 60s. Futures obviously an option as well.

I still don’t see how Tomlinson has any positive trade value. He was that bad this year and even his Casey play looked so limited (output was good but it didn’t look good) that I think it will cost a pick to move him.

Just thinking out loud here but does a Tomlinson for Josh Bruce straight swap make sense? 

We don’t need Tomlinson. Dogs don’t need Bruce. Neither of them recovered well from ACL’s last year. Both might turn it around with a fresh start.

    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.
