Trade Rumours 2023

Recommended Posts

i don’t mind it. we desperate needed a ruck /fwd and Fullarton could surprise a few

we needed fwd pressure, class and marking in fwd 50. McAdam. Russell Robbo mk II?

And we needed some outside run and midfield depth in Billings

The high draft picks can provide the spark and the traded 3 can play their role

Sounds to me like Petty and his manager got thrown an opportunity and took it as a chance to bring stuff to the table with Melbourne. 

We might need to pander to him a little to try and convince him to stay longer term. 

I took from what lamb said was that the MFC will get his family from sa more involved and over more during next season. 

Imo This may go along way to appeasing Pettys desire to go home.

The main target for us should be to move his partner to Melbourne. I don’t know what she studies or does for work, but surely someone on D’land can get this girl a job in Melbourne.

Ha.. spoken like a true ex copper here Lamby.

No [censored] and doesn't feed into what the media want to create headlines.

What does the reporter ask when Lamb just glares and says “No”.

I just can’t hear it. Why can’t they give the journos microphones?!

Is he actually an ex cop?  Explains a lot if true!

Wish coaches spoke like this more often and just don't feed media [censored].

The Petty stuff still worries me, hope we can get him to settle in Melb.  I Travel weekly to SA so happy to transport his mum's cooking every week.

... any other non legitimate drug operations? 

Based on the posting history of some Demonlanders, reckon we could have a few candidates! Then there are our Amsterdam-based posters and their international network!

You must be thinking of a different Russell Robertson!

I suppose it makes for a welcome break from Essendon ‘winning trade week’.

 

I take it back.

Essendon won trade week again…

Port needed rucks and key defenders and got 2 of each and lost Duursma who has been disappointing recently.

Think they did really well.

Bit ridiculous rating trade week in isolation of the upcoming kids draft.

West Coast did very little over the trade week and have an average draft hand.  They are in for quite a few more years of pain.

(not that that’s a particularly bad thing)

 

They could turn 1 into Curtin and 2 more high pick players, so that’s not bad and added a ruckman to replace the non playing Nic Nat and a talented forward in Brockman. 

That’s a good start.

But also worth remembering that Petty is contracted for 2 more years, '24 and '25. No one forced him to sign the contract. Adelaide will be asked to cough up next year if they want a contracted player that we've invested heavily in

On todays Gettable episode they described an early pick swap scenario involving us Gold Coast and North.

Wasnt fully detailed but essentially would have seen North with picks 2, 5 and 6 with Melbourne getting 3 and North's 2024 end of first round pick after giving up 6, 14 and future 1st.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
