I am a bit disillusioned with no-one really wanting to join us. 

Why ? You can take a view that come to MFC and you’ll be playing sometime in the VFL… I wouldn’t want that either.

Doesn't help seeing premiership players like JJ and Harmes leaving either.

Think it’s more when cats and tigers and hawks needed big name players in there window they got them. Tigers and cat needed another key fwd got Lynch and Cameron, cats needed a mid got danger, hawks needed key backs got Lake and Frawley.  Why are we unable to get a king or larkey like they would, even swans tried and failed for naughton. where it the story of us making a 10 year 12 mill offer for someone

I’m bored! I liked the crazy wild nonsense people threw up. 😂

My sources tell me that we have struck a deal with Carlton. We are getting McKay and Curnow in exchange for pick 46 and Bailey Laurie.

Is that better?

Or like when Lever picked us over Collingwood and May picked us over Collingwood and Hawthorn

You misread his post. He's referring to clubs that had already won a flag in their window and acquired a big fish.

Why are we giving such a high pick, can't we get Walsh thrown in?

It is very possible we finalise McAdam and Fullarton for later picks and do nothing else this trade period.

I suspect we won't know about any pick upgrade swaps for a while, as there is no need for WC or North to swap now, as it can be done as late as on draft night, just before the pick being chased is used.

If that's the case, why do the pick 14 to 11 upgrade? Even if we don't intend on using the 2nd round picks we threw in, we could have traded them for future picks?

Because other teams were chasing it i.e. Crows and North

Because we feel that we need 11 for future use and some club like Adelaide, wanted it too.

Both those clubs acquired 1st round picks subsequently via trades. North need picks in order to get Pick 1. And Adelaide now have 3 picks in the top 20, which dare I say it, may be used to acquire Petty.

I'm just curious to know what our intentions are for pick 11. Why is it so important to move up 3 places in the draft?

Yeah but they would've gone for pick 11 if our offer wasn't the best.

I don’t think I did, Cats hadn’t won a flag when they picked up Danger or Cameron, nor had Hawks (08 defensive group had dropped off) when Lake went there. Both sides were in contention when those players wanted to move there

Sure Ed Curnow has great running endurance but let the man retire in peace! How would you use a veterinarian at the Demons though? I am sure Andrew McKay would take good care of any club affiliated pooches 🐶

PS - may need pick 41 instead of 46 to get this trade over the line 😁

Frawley joined the Hawks after they won a flag. Danger joined the Cats when they still had the core of their 2011 Premiership team. Cameron joined the Cats after they lost the 2020 G/F. 

His point stands. They acquired big names whilst in their premiership window.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
