Wow, surprised how much supporters overrate Harmes. He’s barely had 1 good season.
2018 he looked good in the back half of the season but beyond that he has been very average.

Agreed, its the first round compensation for Gresham that I'm questioning. He belongs in the 3rd round with Harmes. Maybe, just maybe we accepted unders for Harmes.

End of First. Which is 2nd really, which I think is fair.

Over time I’ve rated Gresham’s excellent agility. It hasn’t always translated to success but he’s been in poor systems.

See above. Not saying he was by any means a world beater, just that the difference in quality of he and Gresham is not an end of first round versus a future third rounder. 

Anyway. It's done now so let's see what Lamby etc. can achieve.

I'm certainly in the camp of getting 2-3 good young players rather than trying to land pick 1.

Sound thinking. As the old adage suggests “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!” Then again ‘you can’t make an omelette without cracking eggs.’

Some might be overrating Harmes, but some are equally overrating Gresham, as is the compo pick for him. Gresham has not put together a consistent season as an AFL footballer.

It's funny, we are supposedly the easy club to deal with and have a good reputation in trades.

We clear an AA and dual B & F Ruckman and a Premiership mid quickly and cheaply and yet offer good picks on fringe players and are still trying to get the deals done, after a week of the trade period.

Club did everything they possibly could to try and get Tom Lynch this trade period and Richmond wouldn’t bite.

Would have been interesting conversations between the Melbourne recruiting team and the Richmond team.

Yze/Tiges would have been mad to let this happen

Wow. Surely. Adelaide are burning their reputation within the industry with this sort of nonsense.

Wouldn’t think McAdam’s Manager would be happy. In the memory bank, if another player is deciding between Crows and another club.

Yep, totally.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    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
