Gee, so many reasons that I hate Cats, another example above. Port offering overs. Apart from some good games this year as a defender, Ratugolea been very mediocre IMO, given taken with pick 43 in 2016 think pick 24 is good return for someone wanting out.

Isn't Mackie their list manager. Another complete arrogant [censored].

Port's approach to their defence is interesting.  Ratugolea showed promising signs in defence as an individual this year... but Geelong's defence looked much better once he was no longer in the team.  To me they need a lockdown defender to allow Allir to go third man up.  Instead they're chasing two defenders that haven't been able to play the lock down role in Ratugolea and BZT.

I'd be happy to go to the draft with our current picks of 6 and 11 and fill our needs to replenish the list. I think we need to get a gun defender like Curtin, O'Sullivan or Murphy with Pick 6 seeing as we need a replacement for May in the next couple of years. Pick 11 is more interesting and I would target a Mid or Fwd/Mid such as Caddy, Sanders, Wilson though I believe North Melbourne are trying to get priority access to Sanders through his indigenous background and picked up as a NGA. We'll also get Nathan Browns son. 

Having lost Harmes, Jordon, Dunstan we are now light on for inside mid's se we may have to look for a delisted free agent to cover those losses. Pick 41 should get it done for McAdam as he is no better than Harmes who went for a future 3rd rounder but will probably ask for our Future 2nd from the Grundy Trade. Pick 46 or our Future 3rd from Harmes probably gets the job done to land Fullerton. 

I like the idea of trying to land Haynes and pick 7 from GWS but they have recently said they'll keep him now so watch this space. He was a gun defender a couple of years ago and could be a missing piece to winning another premiership. 

Getting more games into Turner, Woewodin, Laurie, Howes and Sestan is a must for next season as we've lost a lot of fringe players and are light for depth.

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.

grundy is a pretty big name on a huge salary

it didn't work; move on

there's no one that's a 'surprise' on the move this year other than schultz who has quite clearly been tapped up by the filth in addition to wanting to return to melbourne for personal reasons - same as the crom tapping up petty to try and pry him loose

we've moved pawns around and would appear to be in a decent position from a salary cap point of view to keep adding to our list in the years to come

Pies Vice Captain goes for 33.

AA and dual B & F Grundy for 46 and F2.

Cats want better than 24 for a guy they don't select in their side.

Gotta love them, coming from Dodoro college.

I wouldn't be surprised if we do a swap with Geelong to move 11 up to 8 as well.

If North do a swap with the Eagles it is actually a good thing for us, as it means one of Sanders, Watson or Duursma is likely to slide to our pick as the Eagles will take Curtin.

If this happened I would be very happy with a draft of Sanders, O'Sullivan and Brown.

As does my point

Danger moves to Cats 5  years after they win a flag 

Lever moves to Dees from a team who finished H and A top and lose the GF to move to a team who hadn’t played finals in 12 years but look on the up

Cameron moves to a team who are in the window because they made GF the previous year you say

May moves to Melbourne after they made the PF the previous year but doesn’t go to the side who finished R/up

Grundy, even though it failed. Was to be kind of a replacement for Dogga

Are we putting Oliver back on the market?……….too soon? 

Considering the latest update to the Oliver thread, way too soon I’m afraid.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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
