Trade Rumours 2023

That pick would then be traded back to Essendon in a deal that would see Dylan Shiel land at St Kilda, in a move that would bolster the Saints engine room.

The rationale behind the deal would be Essendon clearing Shiel’s remaining salary off their books for the final year of his contract, to increase some flexibility in their salary cap, to help bring in their two free-agent targets.

It has the benefit for Essendon of handing them a handy draft pick, while turning Shiel into McKay. At St Kilda, it means they effectively swap Gresham (who they don’t really want at this point) for Shiel.

I reckon Ralphy’s got his wires crossed on this one. 

The Saints surely want a decent pick for Gresham and Shiel is worth nothing given his age, injuries and salary. 

Unless there’s no market at all for Gresham and the Bombers have to pay him massive overs I’d expect the Saints to hold on to the good pick and hand Essendon a lesser one.

Either way, it’s the height of all dodgyness and the AFL need to stamp it out.

(Unless we can do something similar if JJ and Grundy both pick Sydney and we can pay some of Grundy’s contract in return for the Swans boosting JJ to buy us good compo).

I reckon picks will get it done if we want it to. We have a top 5-7 pick, another late first rounder, two seconds and a future first, that's enough capital, along with what North already have to revitalise their list.

Larkey is 26, a long term deal with us gives him the chance to play finals.

North are having 9 first round picks over a 3 year stretch and Larkey is happy there. He’s not going to move. They’ll improve next year, win at least 10 games if not play finals in 2025 and be a finals lock from then on.

Plus what are North going to do? Draft Nate Caddy and hope in 3-5 years he’s good? They’d be mad to get rid of a key forward just for more picks when they’ve had a stack and got more coming.

The talk of Larkey is fantasy. If we land a coup, it’ll be Ben King or Aaron Naughton. Both will cost us plenty.

Would be a small drop in the ocean if it leads us to another flag though. We are in contention now, strike while the irons still hot. Go all in and bring in talent that will help us for the now

Even fake accounts can strike gold sometimes. ;) What if we offered more than 6 years? We have draft capital to offer North and cap space to offer Larkey. We're in a rare position. Who knows.

And didn't even realise it was a fake account. At least I'll acknowledge a fake rumour compared to old wink wink over there who'll claim it as is own.

On Larkey, you don't sign a huge 6 year contract only to then turn around and speak to other clubs 5 minutes. He'd be nearly on a million a year so money wise he's set at North.

C'mon mate, even you're smart enough to think that's absolutely absurd. 

If this was Petracca or Oliver doing this you'd shut it down as nonsense.

You might find this interesting because at this stage I don’t believe the media even know about it.

As strange as it seems, Taylor Adams from the Pies has contacted the Swans himself to discuss their interest in him moving there. Wants to play more midfield and clearly feels he’s not getting the love from the Pies. 
 

Totally separate to this, my sources tell me that Callum Mills has badly damaged his shoulder/collarbone in a mad Monday wrestling match and will miss a major part of preseason. Apparently Longmire was as angry as he’s ever been after hearing about it. 

@goodwindees strikes again

Brody Grundy. Not equivalent, but not too dissimilar

Stranger things have happened Dazzle!

Barry Prendergast.  He drafted guys who were rated at the time.  The development was horrendous. And a few had injuries like Blease who badly broke his leg before he started and Strauss who took a little while and just as he was beginning to look like the standard he busted his leg too. And then there were a few big misses.  A very forgettable time.

I have forgotten alot of things from that time period but never the name Barry Prendergast.

Etched into my brain for all the wrong tormenting reasons.

Entice Taylor walker to cross on a 2-year deal. better chance of a flag before he retires (although i tip the Crows to play finals next year)

We already went after Walker and Fogarty 2 years ago especially Walker and were politely declined.

Online article on the Herald Sun website purporting to have the "latest" on Petty. Can't access it.

No SA homecoming for Dees

Melbourne will rebuff Adelaide’s attempts to secure star duo Harry Petty or Tom Sparrow in the Shane McAdam deal.

The Crows are keen on a ready-made quality player in return for McAdam, who turned his back on a fresh deal at Adelaide to join Melbourne in the exchange period.

But the Demons will likely offer the Crows a third-round pick or low-round pick swap in the McAdam deal.

Melbourne’s top priority is to secure adequate compensation in the trade for Brodie Grundy to Sydney, such as a second-round pick.

Article on sen in regards to suns pick 4.

“It will be changing hands. Whether North can compete with the Bulldogs remains to be seen, or whether North pivot and go for Melbourne’s first pick.”

Swear afl journalists have such a poor understanding of the trade and draft period. In what world would we accept pick 14 and 19 for a top 5 pick. We don't need points and 14 and 19 will become compromised by at least 4 academy and f/s selections. Would roughly look more like pick 7 for 18 and 23.

It was quoting Sammy Edmund.  I listened to the segment and thought he meant to say West Coast, but said Melbourne.  He might have just had Melbourne on his mind, because he also suggested Dees could still have a go at Pick 1.

That said, if Roos would still like to take Sanders, they could probably split pick 2 (or a band 1 compensation pick for McKay) with us and still be pretty certain of getting him with our pick from Freo (would be independent of whether they land pick 4).

Cheers, that makes more sense.

Maybe they are looking to split their 2nd pick? NM Pick 3 (McKay comp) for 5 and 15. They can then use their first rounders and chase GCS and end up with 2, 4 and 5.

They're just generating clicks, there is little to no real news ATM.

    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
