Trade and Free Agency rumours

Does the Hawthorn fallout include Karl Amon looking somewhere else other than Hawthorn?

He'd certainly be handy to pair with Langdon's run, Bowey and Salem's ball use.

That would complement us perfectly.

I suppose his foot skills wouldn't really fit in. Here I was thinking we need speed and good disposal added into our best 22. Apparently we just need grunt on the wing.

Edit: Just to reiterate, I'm in favour of getting jack bowes, pick 7 and 13 and keeping gus/Jordan on the wing. But as I said, if the club is so keen on Amon, why not Hill?

Soft as melting butter, you obviously like flakey players!? We are talking about Hill aren't we??

Hey mate. Has there been any word yet on next years salary cap? I haven't heard anything which is strange seeing there's a trade period coming up. Where did you hear $600k? Cheers.

Heard it on either AFL exchange or Sportsday podcast as ‘insiders say.’

odd that it hasn’t been confirmed

As far as wingers go that wouldn't break the bank. I like Lachie Sholl from the crows. Quick, skillful and a massive tank. He is a bit light but we have enough brutes . Melbourne boy who found himself in the twos towards the end of the year.

Obviously he isn’t great at the contest but I’m shocked by how little playing time he got at the crows this year (unless I missed something). Given their stage of development as a side I’d give every possible game to Sholl to see if he makes it. I’m not sure we have the same luxury, but if he was available free of charge he’d be someone worth a look at. He’s a beautiful looking kick.

Averaged 0.82 tackles a game this year.

That ranked him 555th out of 571 players this year for tackling. Of those who averaged fewer tackles, he's the only one to have played more than 6 games and be under 190cm. The only semi-regular non-key position/ruck that tackled less than him was noted defensive hard man, Riley Bonner.

I reckon that's got a fair bit to do with his non-selection in the second half of the year.

my crom support mate loathes scholl almost as much as he can't stand fish mcasey

he considers the latter emblematic of their first round drafting which has been, quite frankly, abysmal

2021: josh rachele at pick 6 (a winner)
2020: riley thilthorpe at pick 2, luke pedlar at pick 11 (jury out on the latter)
2019: fish mcasey at pick 6 (looks a bust)
2018: chayce jones at pick 9, ned mchenry at pick 16 (both classique good, ordinary afl level players)
2017: darcy fogarty at pick 12 (has taken burgess to get him fit enough for afl)
2016: jordan galucci at pick 15 (a bust)
2015: wayne milera at pick 11, tom doedee at pick 17 (probably their last good first round selections)

as we well know, if you get yr first round picks 'wrong' yr up against it to build a good side

If someone can get through the paywall then we won’t have to worry about the rest of this thread.

How most hectic trade period in history will unfold

Can't get through the paywall, but the headline sure looks familiar. We get it every year and trade period always disappoints

Wouldn't be against it. Improvement on the Jordan / Spargo combo. Still wonder why we never put Brayshaw back to his premiership winning position at some stage during the year

We were his 2nd choice but he wants to play more midfield which we wouldn’t offer and also we wouldn’t match the Hawks $ 

Would he still want to go to Whorethorn after the developments  and reported toxic culture?

Can't see indiscretions by ex staff from a decade ago weighing on his decision that heavily. Could be wrong

The reason he is playing 2s is because of his skills and defensive pressure.  And in the SANFL finals when the heat turned up he was very average!

Be better of investing in our list and getting a cheap backup like Phillips,  who I think just didn't fit the right age demographic at Hawks.

    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.
