Yeah I make it up.. cus as a workaholic, 4 kids, a huskey and an unhealthy reading habit I have time to make things up for the reason of.. if dunno.. catfishing???

 

I report what I hear and always have/will, and even then it’s a MINUTE amount, sooo much gets thrown up and tossed aside, some of the crazy stuff I don’t list ends up true ie Grundy mid last year. The more you Know peeps in the industry the more you realise how much is muted about, go watch the player agent docos — LOADS of stuff gets leaked and talked about. My rule is if it’s single source, unless directly club linked I don’t share — if it’s same topic multiple ppl then I share, but even that’s limited! Go ask any afl list manager how many players per year they talk to agents of or to other clubs about.. it’d be 30+ EVERY year 

Don’t even listen to downiedavey, he’s the biggest flop since Mason Cox

Part trade rumour/ part trade anxiety: I worry about Petty’s name coming up during the period.

Some murmurings of Adel throwing his name in the mix for McAdam trade (which we all scoffed at) but if you think about it, as a rare, flexible tall who is on the up, I’m pretty sure his market value would be much much higher than his current pay packet… 

Also you’d expect our plan is to groom him a forward to suit our needs… who’s to say that doesn’t suit him?

Not a rumor but just wanted to ask what are we going to down about replacing Grundy?

Can't really afford to bring in a trainee with Max getting on a bit.

Also it's much more preferable to also get an established big bodied fwd  or two with Tmac and Bbb futures  in doubt.

Fix those three problems successfully and I'm confident we will make top four again.

I have no insider info but this picked up my ears as well. thinking we'd go after another ruck... is Sean Darcy on the move?

I hope we are up to something on a number of fronts:

coaching replacements and switches - forward and midfield coaches, new ball movement plans.

Some better ball users and elite talent (both new via draft and trading in).

Ruck replacement for Grundy, if he goes as planned.

KP players for FB, CHB, CHF.

No rumours here, but if what the jungle drums are signalling (by no signal), I hope we are going to make a big splash this trade/draft period.

two nuffies talking rubbish

they openly admit they have no idea what we're doing

which, i suspect, is just the way that tim lamb likes it; we don't leak

I'm coming around to the idea of throwing a 2 year peanuts deal out to Levi Casboult. Can play ruck, back and forward, is great in the air and should have no issue spending time at Casey. Plus we wouldn't even need to play him in the ruck at Casey so as not to interfere with Farris-White and Verrell's development, however could walk straight into ruck in the seniors should Max get injured.

chol is the one on the market, and he's going to north - i suspect as part of the deal for their new magical future firsts for pick 4 etc.

Big Bang?

Not that many I would have thought. Given a key forward is where we’d try to splash, even fewer. Cameron, Oscar Allan or one of the King twins probably the only one’s Big Bang worthy. Naughton wouldn’t quite get to that level for me.

It seems the done deal is Grundy to Swans.

Must be relatively simple if as agreed upon as it appears. Do we not even know what that trade is?

Demonland intel is broken.

I’ll pretend I know something…

Grundy +p24 for p11

Oh. And no chance Nth get p3 for McKay, sets unworkable precedent.

That would be an incredible win for us, but I don't see it happening.

Oliver on the move? No intel.

Don’t even joke about that. The only way we’d let him walk from a 7 year contract is if we were given picks 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. Even then we’d probably ask for 11 too.

I reckon it's Naughton.

What’s a big move?

Trading for pick 1?
Trading for pick 4?

Targeting a key forward (feels like we’ve covered them all. But I’ll add a name if we’re just taking wild guesses , Riley Thilthorpe)?

How about trading for midfield class? 

Can we convince Tim Kelly and his partner to come give Victoria another go and play finals rather than rebuild at 29?

Can we convince Zach Merrett that Essendon aren’t going anywhere?

Richmond need picks to kickstart a rebuild, what if we offer the world for Shai Bolton?

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
