Apologies for giving Cornes oxygen.

'Like for like'. Would it be? In football terms for one (@Demon Disciple's response noted) but also:

The player's respective desires to move (if any)?

Does HP still get the $3.4m? And what contract for RT?

Just because there's a lure doesn't mean it will catch anything. 

As a fisherman who mostly uses lures this is 100% correct 😂

Petty has to be the most underrated player in the competition!

Any Petty trade significantly reduces our current window while Max and May are still elite AFL players. I would only consider Thilthorpe plus all their first rounders.

Would you pay Harry Petty who is currently recovering from a very serious foot injury 800-900k a year? 

I rate the kid, but no way in the world i'd be spending that sort of money on him

A 4 - 5 year deal at $650-700k.would be fair value IMO. He is an excellent key defender entering his prime over the next few years and has demonstrated he is very capable as a key forward. Look at what Essendon paid for Ben McKay.  The $800k that Adelaide are supposedly offering includes a premium to entice him out of an environment he is happy in - Roos once said it costs 20% more to trade in a player than to retain one.

On a side note I like that Tom Morris is reporting Petty's lure to his boarding school 'home'. The whole idea of boarding school is somewere to stay while you study away from home. As some have pointed out here he is not from Adelaide but South Australia.

We won't trade Petty. Hold him to his contract and start negotiations on a great extension next year.

If it doesn't work out then we've got a year to make alternative plans.

He has 2 years to run so if he wants to go to the Crows at the end of next year they still have to pay up big for a contracted player.

Would you take this?

Basically values Petty as Future 2nd and McAdam to us. Every other club says yes because Melbourne loses out so badly in this deal. Thilthorpe, pick 10 and McAdams to be in the conversation for Petty.

Petty is a great player and would love to keep him at the Dees. 
However I think we are crazy not to consider options given he may want to leave at the end of his contract anyway. 
 

I would consider a trade along the lines of: 


Thilthorpe or Fogarty, 10 and McAdam

for Petty and a Future 2nd 

yes it’s overs for Petty, but they are offering him 1 mil 2 years out from a contract. 
 

Thilthorpe or Fogarty are young enough and will develop really well with JVR. mcAdam comes across with another player which may assist in forward connection earlier, and we get another first rounder to throw at Eagles for Reid.

 

We can cover petty down back with Disco.

Petty must stay at Melbourne. Adelaide can go and get stuffed. As for Mcadam he is about as reliable as passed wind in a pickle bottle.

agree about mcadam. he's inconsequential

could pickup a mcadam type from the vfl easily

3rd rounder or go jump, crows

Disagree covering Petty.

His is a super star in the making if his body holds up better.

Plus I know he's only played a few games fwd but ultimately that's his best role and we would struggle to find a replacement for him there.

We have no serviceable tall feds apart from him. Maybe Smith but he's not super tall or as good.

Hope we  can keep him.

Stuff McAdam. Just another overrated [censored] in the money fueled trade period. Stuff the crows. I dont want any of them playing in our jumper( except Tex).

Hey crows!!!  wanna give us Tex!

We'll give you Spargo Chandler and a future 2nd round pick.

    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

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
