  1. 39 might move up as picks in the 20s and 30s are swallowed up for NGA and FS. Handy that it's inside 40 in case Dees look at our potential NGAs outside 40, eg. Riak Andrew
  2. And a midfielder with elite disposal by foot. Pretty please?
  3. One of the better stories for the Dees this year. And congrats to him and his partner on the birth of their child Looking forward to a big preseason from Joel and continued success in 2024
  4. Reckon that's a good offer from Hawks. Hard for us to beat it
  5. But he is from SA, and Melb is 1,300km away from his home town. He also played at Norwood before his draft. In short, he does have past links with SA and Adelaide city. Not that this means he is homesick
  6. Wasn't necessarily Oliver to GCS for 4 plus, but a scenario that gets us pick 4. Could be multi club deal
  7. Sorry, later pick was later 1st round pick. That would be multiple 1st round picks
  8. Trade radio saying that a senario where pick 4 and a later pick might be enough for a trade with Clarry Then 4 and 5 used towards pick1 We might have a few in tears on this board next week
  9. No, cbf, but you could try looking at WCWs post history
  10. Yes, and that post mentioned that Goody gave the biggest spray to Kossie post game on front of the while team. Wouldn't be the first rule of Management 101 Just throwing this out there... maybe part of the problem is Goody?
  11. Agreed overall, but there have been some f ups over the last year or two that have taken the shine off my view of our recruitment strategies. Grundy trade this year was a flop for what we had hoped for, and despite injuries we still lack a tall dominant forward, for which Gawndy was never going to succeed. Are we seen as a 'destination' club anymore? Perhaps that's a contributing factor in all the talk of getting high draft picks rather than landing a big 🐟 Granted, its early doors in the trade period
  12. If, of we were to trade Clarry, I seriously think many Melbourne fans would be bitterly fissapointed with the return. IMO this talk of us working it to get picks 1 and 3 are pie in the sky stuff, even if we bundle 5 into it. I think we'd be more likely to be offered something roughly similar to the Jackson trade, 2 x 1sts and a 2nd, with the two 1sts being outside top 10 But it's all smoke and mirrors at the moment, who the f knows!
  13. Yeah righto... And we are weighing up whether to make a play for Nick Daicos, the Bont and Walsh FMD 🙄
  14. Is that so? Bloody Nora, our list will have some sort of turnover this year
  15. Reckon they'd give up 2 and a later 1st rounder. Don't they have 14 or something similar? Maybe a 2024 late 1st as well. That leaves Norf with 1, 3 and the AFLs gifted end of 1st round. That's a bloody good hand. They might even grab O'Sullivan with 3 to replenish their key defensive stocks A lot to like about Norf's list going forward WCE get their WA boy and a couple of 1st rounders Win/win
  16. I'll have a go... Grundy leaving frees up possibly $650k, Hibberd about $450k, JJ maybe $300k, Dunstan $250k? If Harmes leaves that's another $450k We'll inject about 4 in the draft, incl 2 x 1st rounders and Pup Brown. McAdam from Crows gets about $500k I'd say our cap isn't overly tight
  17. Happy about this, love what he brings to our forward line Won't cost a lot, financially or list wise, especially with the number of players retiring or leaving for opportunities elsewhere
  18. Speaking of umpires, I think it's time to throw the ball up instead of bouncing it. I used to love the tradition of the umpires having a ball skill, now I'm just sick of seeing their crappy bounces being recalled. Happened at the very start of the GF, what a let down!
  19. You do know that Bedford doesn't play for Melbourne? And that Hibberd isn't a "Laurie type" player? Or that most of those players aren't the same height or skill level? Eg Spargo isn't the same 'type' as Harmes or Jordan
  20. Cox gets a $1 fine for his GF hip to the head, but JVR gets a week for similar against the pies Go figure!
  21. We can only hope that high on the AFLs 2024 priority list are corporate accountability and transparency, and improved standards of umpiring with a level playing field for all clubs. Happy that Gil is leaving, unhappy that his replacement is from within the Boys Club There should be more to the AFL than making profits
  22. Pies shouldn't have been let past GWS prelim by the umpires
  23. There were about 3 frees to Bris in the last 3 mins that went unrewarded, not to mention the ridiculous 'advantage' call
