Harley Reid

I believe Lyon was at the same reunion in Kyabram that Reid's parents attended.  I don't believe there's anything other than a happenstance meeting.  Lyon confirmed he attended a Kyabram reunion on radio during the week and Reid's parents were also there.

Eagles need multiple 1st round picks. I wonder if we also offer them Grundy as well.

Brodie won’t want to go west when he has so many suitors on this side of the continent.

And before we talk about ‘we hold the whip hand’ - no we don’t. Players can refuse to go and while we can just keep him. Do we want to? Don’t we want to invest in a forward? Maybe JVR can avoid rucking?

Unfortunately, North are still best placed to trade for pick one.

2 + 16 for 1? WC get Curtin and a bonus 1st rounder (Port's)

We could come in and top that. If we can get GC pick. We’d have to pay massive overs, and get something back.

No guarantee WC gets Curtin with 4 or 5 though

Simpler just to trade with North direct

Deal 1

Dees: Out - 4 and 18

           In - pick 2

Roos: Out - pick 2

           In - pick 4 and 18

Deal 2

Dees: Out - pick 2, 24 + F1 (15-18)

           In - Pick 1

WC:   Out - Pick 1

          In - Pick 2, 24 and melb F1

 

Essentially a 3-way trade. Not the worst possibility, and importantly a potential option if we can't get pick 4 from the suns.

I've read on another forum that the Suns have plenty of picks to cover bids for their 3 (likely top 10) academy players.  The thought being that they're more likely to try and trade pick 4 for another team's future first.  Ideally a team they project to finish near the bottom in 2024.  But who knows what Taylor has up his sleeve.

Pick 4 still equates to roughly 2,000 points. So they'll need to recuperate that in addition to a future 1st if that's their intention. Not many clubs will be able to facilitate that.

Yes, they'd want a future first plus extra.

Today's results are certainly great news for MFC.  Opens up our options.  WC need multiple first rounds picks as we did in 2013........  splitting our number 1 pick went along way to rebuilding our list....... a super important step to building our premiership list.  No doubt WC are very aware of this.

Reid becomes a real and live option again.  Whether it can be done and whether this is the direction the MFC wants to go, only time will tell.  But what we do know is that we have been interested enough to pursue Reid as a possible payday for our 2023 draft bonanza.  It is a fact that we have put in enormous time and effort to make this a possibility of happening.

The MFC has options on how to spend its bonanza everywhere. 

This is the honey train draft/trade period for us.  Whatever direction we end up taking.......... if we nail it, we set our football club up for a decade.  We give ourselves the opportunity to create a genuine dynasty.  

I am just so excited.

Yep it is exciting, Reid or multiple good young players, what a wonderful problem.

We also have a real chance at another flag.

That is way unders. 4 and 5 is a much better offer. So they miss Curtain - they’ll get two gun midfielders for the price of one. 
 

 

I wouldn't be trading 4 + 5 for pick 1

But they want Curtin, he is their Reid.

Any deal needs to ensure them of Curtin.

2 plus 16 would do it.

    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
