  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

Tim Lamb will be holding his cards very close to his chest but at his presser he doesn’t sound like he is laser focussed on Reid

”west coast have the golden ticket” very happy with 6 and 11 if we can get a bit higher etc

It’s at 3.26 of the attached

13 out

4 in

9 picks over national/rookie draft or perhaps a delisted free agent plus spot held over for a pre-seasom supplemental selection.

They have 5 first rounders then picks 57 and 82.


Based on that alone, can’t see them happily giving up all those late first rounders. Wouldn’t se surprised to see them collect a few rejects like Mathieson.

The reality is we are no chance of getting pick 1 without North providing us pick 2 or 3, and North want Reid as much as any club. 

The Harley Reid dream is over as far as I'm concerned. A deal between WCE and North will get done.

The AFL has engineered it, with free picks flying to Arden street.

This one is slightly different in that the video is broken down by skillset eg. Marking, contested work etc..

 

 

Yep, he's good :)

No wonder, in June, we flagged our wish to have him. 

Miracles do happen...

His handball creativity reminds me of Oliver's first few years

Reid is an amazing prospect

His stoppage work is a cross between Neale and Trac and disposal akin to Oliver. Smart footballer. I think he'll be a great player and given his style will quickly rise in the AFL ranks and hopefully displace all the talk around N.Daicos sooner rather than later.

There was a great premiership coach who believed kicking on your opposite foot was highly overrated.

No left foot. It's a huge risk for WCE to ignore the substantial offers being made for pick 1.

Read between the lines...@rjay

Daicos is a beauty, unfortunately he has to play for C/wood.

A clear run with injury and Reid will be up there no doubt.

Harley Reid, a highly anticipated draft prospect in the AFL, is almost certain to play for West Coast in 2024. Rival clubs are racing to offer the Eagles an out-of-this-world deal to trade the No.1 draft pick and get first access to Reid, who is seen as a clone of three-time Norm Smith medallist Dustin Martin. The Eagles have not had any proposals from other clubs that were yet to catch their eye, despite several being interested.

The picks only trade period ends on Friday, leaving only opening draft night on November 20 for a deal to go through. North Melbourne and Melbourne have been the key players offering at least two deals to get a trade done with the Eagles, including an offer of pick 2 and two of their late first-round selections (15, 17, or 18) for 1 and 23.

Melbourne have also come hard for the pick, putting forward 6, 11, 42 and a future first-rounder for just pick No.1.

Both deals have not made the Eagles move, making it more likely than unlikely that the wooden spooners will hold onto the pick. Tongala prodigy Reid is almost certain to head West, having long been touted as the best prospect in this year's draft. Reid will automatically sign a three-year deal instead of the previously normal two-year contract under the new CBA rules, giving West Coast strong bargaining power should he request a trade back to Victoria.

This will be the third time the Eagles have used the No.1 pick, having previously picked up dual premiership player Drew Banfield (1992) and former All-Australian ruckman Michael Gardiner (1996). However, the Eagles are likely to buck the minor trend unless they pull a shock move and pick Tigers utility Daniel Curtin with the first pick in the draft.

Curtin is almost certain to be picked inside the first half a dozen selections and was invited to the first night of the draft alongside Subiaco forward Koltyn Tholstrup.

Would like to think we could do a reverse Luke Jackson for Reid end of 2027. My guess is that some Melbourne club will make the mega offer. He could be the first $2M a year player. If he lives up to the hype he'll easily command 6 x $1.6+ in 2027

He's from country Victoria and is a Geelong supporter. Will likely be down at the cattery in a few years time and handed the keys to the city.

Given that article that WC will keep 1, makes me think they are certain to trade it.

IMO, the key is whether WC believe Curtin will be there at our pick 6.

The Hawks and North possibly, hold the key. If WC believe they won’t take Curtin, I believe we will get 1, if we are prepared to sell the farm.

TBH, I would keep 6 and 11 and take Curtin and whoever we rate at 11.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
