So you reckon pick 4, 18, 23 & a player like Tomlinson would do it??? 

The Crows offered North Pick 4 and their 2022 first-round pick and Melbourne’s 2022 first-round pick and North said no. It would have to be 2 top 10 picks for North to be interested which would be unlikely.

I remember then saying similar things about JHF, and look what happened

Pick 4, 5 and Future 1st

I'd do it, but would North?

Also not convinced we are the most likely to get the Suns pick but we have a good hand to make a play.

Edit: if they do receive pick 2 from the McKay compensation (they shouldn't but that's another debate) then it could actually help us to an extent.

Roos would then consider picks 2, 5, 6 and future 1st.

Vs

1 and 2.

Pretty decent haul.

Big call to say no to Reid though for them.

The Doggie implosion has blown-up an in-principal deal with WCE for us to get Reid.  Lyon has been involved at a personal level.

The final decision whether to exercise the deal, by both WCE and MFC had yet to be made.  Plenty of water still to go under the bridge between now and November.  Nevertheless, we have been actively pursuing Reid as an option on how to spend our draft bonanza.  It would seem we are still keen to have this option with NM, but considering everything our chances are now weak.

There is zero chance that we had an “in-principal” deal with WCE. It is one of the dumbest things I’ve heard, I have no idea how people still get sucked in by your garbage. The part about Lyon being “involved at a personal level” did give me a laugh though, so points there.

Given Nths list, they really don't need Reid; they are stacked for midifled talent. Trading 1 to us for multiple top picks could really fast track their rebuild, and they could still get Curtin plus other young guns, including a gun small forward in Watson

Please excuse me for picking up on the peak irony of us actually wanting/needing Reid compared with North based on your midfield assessment. 🤣👍

What's Lyon's role in this? We don't have to convince Reid of anything, we just give him a courtesy heads up that we, a top 4 Victorian club, like him and want to draft him, and he may hear that we're after pick one to do it. What's not to like?

It's the holder of pick one that needs convincing.

I’ll take a shot. North are [censored] right now. They lost a few veterans. They’ll be worse next year as the list hits rock bottom. They are short of a KPD, small forwards and and a variety of other roles.

Do they take a crack at trying to get Curtin, Watson and McKercher. Or go with Reid? They will already get Sanders by all accounts.  That’s 4 guns that in 2-3 years time will be talked about regularly. 
 

im happy either way.

Sure, but remind me of how old Trac and Viney are and who their replacements are going to be.

I don't think North will trade the first pick. But they are stacked with young midfield talent, while we haven't taken a midfielder in the first round, let alone the top 10, since Clarry.

I’ve never really seen too much of GNF on DLand but appears very polarising.… What is the background there?

No disrespect RPFC but over the years I have openly spoken on what I have heard.  Some things have come to be, some have not.......... and sometimes yes, you have annoyed me so much I have had some fun.  

Perhaps you forget some of my scoops like  Roos a lock to coach the Dees next season a done deal after round 7, 2013.  The abuse I copped on here for 9 months was extraordinary........ but no apologies in the end.

Anyone can go through my record if they could be bothered, the truth is its far better than any journalist as I have enjoyed a direct ear from the very top for a long time.  There is plenty more I hear that I simply dont tell as its not in the MFC interest.

To suggest I make it up is not true. I have rarely done this, when I have it's been so obvious, it's been to get you back.

This place is pretty boring most of the time. What is the point of having a rumour thread if those hearing rumours only get abused, or belittled when things don't eventuate. 

Unfortunately, I am terminally ill, I have been for 3 years.  This will be my last season to pass on what I hear.  So enjoy it while it lasts.

As for Reid, what I have written is 100%, we had an in principal agreement with WCE....... but as I said who knows whether it would have eventuated anyway.

GNF that is very sad news you have passed on about your health. I wish you and I am sure the whole of DL also joins me in wishing you all the best.

I hope you receive more joy from the Dees and that you are with us for much longer than you or your Doctors think.

I have enjoyed your posts and rumours of course don’t always come true. I have always looked forward to reading footy rumours and taken them with a grain of salt.

All the best mate, thinking of you.

Don't think the Dee's were, Lyon had a meeting with Reid's parents in Kyabram, where Lyon is from. I wouldn't think Lyon would have any official connection with MFC anymore.

No, Ralph was hinting that Melbourne FC had a meeting with Reid on Monday,  he tried to get it out of Gary but he just let it go through to the keeper.  

Sorry Travy but I have to correct you,

JR to GL  Did you have a meeting with Harley Reid's parents in Kyabram on the weekend.

GL reply Yes I did, very nice people to.

JR to GL  Have the Demons had a chat with Harley, do you know ?

GL reply If they haven't they should, but after the events of the weekend probably no use or words to that effect.

GNF ...sorry for your troubles. Hang in there we need all the supporters we can get!

 

So if Suns put in a shocker in Tassie what do Norff do? Do they kick the ball over the fence everytime they get it. They cant win or lose Reid.

The AFL has got to stop giving Norff 1st and priority picks. If they get their 4th spoon next year they get pick 11 and thats all in R1. Done  FFS.

So sorry to hear this GNF. Personally I’ve always appreciated and enjoyed you passing on what you hear. Thanks for being part of my  DL experience. Wish you well in your transition 🙏🏼 Hopefully the boys can bring home a flag for you.

Would be hilarious if the Suns rest several more players like Geelong and a young North side want to win, despite who they have on the field.

Despite resting players and switching them around, what else can Clarko do to ensure a loss.

If a miracle happened and WC get 1, the only way for us to get Reid, is for Curtin to absolutely convince North and Hawks he will go home in 2 years.

For one of them to take him in those circumstances, would be extremely foolish. Another JHF situation, which would heave the fans furious.

I think this Reid situation is just too difficult to happen for us.

Couldn't have said it better.  Let's hope we can snag another shortly GNF.  Ty for your input to the site over the years.

I got a real kick reading your name after the premiership.

Peace to you & best wishes

Like i said he was implying that it is happening and was trying to get the info out of Garry who wouldn't budge.

    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

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
