Trade and Free Agency rumours

D4life actually raises a terrific point about Spargs getting space by himself to receive and deliver (or line-'em-up) yet is being ignored by nearly all of his teammates. The 'long bomb' has significantly weakened our team and so many of our players still keep attempting to kick 'that one' that reaches a forward target successfully. Seldom, rarely, almost never occurs.

Spargs may well have kicked 20-30 goals in the 2022 season if the game plan had 'permitted' it to occur. This has to change. Jordan's effectiveness overall is commendable and his kicking to Spargs remains a vital cog in the wheel of deliberation. He can see the more frequent potential, knowing Spargs' is just about our best 'deliverer' and 'feeder of forwards'. It's game plan stuff, once again ... it is stuff that should be better rehearsed and exploited.

Might have to change this thread to "SPARGS THE MESSIAH!"

I just see Spargs, given a fairer shake of the sav by others in the team, as mighty similar (but a little slower) than a young bloke we once had tearing other teams apart - particularly up forward - Tricky Ricky we used to call him and the ginger beanpole did everything he could to get him into the play and off for a couple of mind-bending passes, receives and goals.

ay we're here for the trade rumours, not the depressing 2022 game plan lamentations :laugh:

Yet when rumouring about trades in and out, we must consider the game planning, the talents we have and the opportunities that these possibilities may hold; otherwise, the trading is a waste of Far Ken's time.

I have heard Essendon have some interest in Tommlinson, and with that in mind i'd be having a look at Aaron Francis. we rated him highly in his draft year. 

I think the reason i'd go for this is we'd clear Tommo's cap space which is significant, sign Francis for a much much smaller deal, and retain the key back depth while also getting a player who has talent, upside and may well benefit from a change of scenery.

Doubt we get anything in return for Tomlinson meaning we would need to trade for Francis, I’d expect Essendon as usual will ask for overs probably our first round pick.

I see The Age are suggesting Brisbane's Devon Robertson could be on the move. I remember in that behind-the-scenes video of the 2019 draft we were really into him - he went early & they went with Rivers. If he is on the move, I'd be surprised if Taylor & co weren't having a go.

Pretty sure he’s been desperate to get home since he got drafted. His upside (ok depth) doesn’t cover his downside for mine

Brenton Sanderson seems a loose canon.  His latest conjuring trick: "... believes a player like Cam Rayner, the 2017 number one draft pick, could get caught up in all the trade chaos – given Brisbane need draft points to match a potential rival bid for Ashcroft".

I didn't hear the trade radio session but going on the media report, he had no basis whatsoever, not even an 'I've heard ..." or "hypothetically' but throws a kids name out there.  I get the need for click bait and something to talk about this week but imv it is unfair on the player and family to indulge in such fabrications.

Narkle is out of Geelong, is he worth looking at? Seems to possess talent, just inconsistent.

I heard it, sure caused a stir for no real reason. Really needed to prefice it with the word 'hypothetical'

He has shown good VFL form in the ruck and can kick goals. 

While we all know his weaknesses he needs a fresh start and I really hope he finds one with more senior game opportunities than we can offer him.

West Coast don't stay down for long.  If they can get their list healthy they still have some really good players.

Anyone hear Matt Rendell on Trade Radio yesterday? He basically said there were fitness issues at WC and that a bunch of guys there were 'fat'. Then went on to name and shame. He's certainly of the old school!

I watched West Coast play this season. I don't need him to name and shame. My eyes very clearly showed me a bunch of overweight and unfit players. Nic Nat top of that list.

Like it's definitely true that a lot of their guys were probably a few kilos over where they needed to be, even guys like Gaff who were superior runners couldn't run out games at all. I just loved how eager he was to fat shame.

They certainly gave up on this season very easily and early.  No question that they were completely under prepared for the season. They will fix this, WCE expect to win and will do what is needed.

They started going downhill when in 2020 when some players treated the Qld hub resorts like holidays but that didn't stop  them whinging about being there. 

Then they were bundled out of the finals very easily and it has all looked to hard them since. 

As always, down hill skiers!!

MFC have ruled out trading Weideman.

Another rubbish story made by Tradio Radio!

They should stop throwing names around without any back up. 

It is getting more and more embarrassing for them.

    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.
