    I have heard whispers of a possible trade.

    Nothing confirmed ( a long way from it) and information is very thin. I did hear it from two different people.

    TMac/VdB packaged with a 2nd round (this year or next) for their first round 2020.

    No idea where this originated.

     

    That would be Williams compo pick 10? Adelaide have GWS's first round pick 9

    How would we fit Brown in then?

    Some have suggested that offloading tmac is more about having room in the cap for a bunch of re-signings next year, including Mr C Oliver, rather than fitting Brown in.

    Also, the Brown contract might be back loaded, though that seems out of favour these days, tmac being evidence where a struggling player gets big money late in their deal

  3. Regardless of our pursuit of Smith, the real story here is the continuing fact that the FA system favours power clubs more than it does minnows. Clubs like us, Norf, Saints and WB will find it increasingly hard to supply flags and brown paper bags to entice stars 

    The easy solution is to ban top 4 or top 6 clubs getting FAs, or force them to trade for them. Though I suppose short term player rights is more important than longer term competition equalisation...

    It was his doubling down that has now cost @Dr evil all credibility with any future mail that he purports to have. 

    He was arrogantly adamant that Smith would be a Demon in 2021 that people were led to believe that a contract had been signed and the club was just waiting for the perfect media cycle window to roll him out.

    I absolutely love whispers at this time of year but I've lost all confidence in his inside word. He pushed this one too hard and now has to live with the consequences that he is tarnished goods now. 

    RIP sweet prince. 

    You must be real fun at parties, Lefty

    Appreciate that dazzle. Apologies for the disappointment I’ve caused to any posters. its a strange time of the year 

    Apologies? Mate, you're not supposed to apologise when you get it wrong on Demonland. You should be making excuses and covering your tracks!

    BTW, I knew you were wrong all along. Smithy told me last week

  6. Think Andy will have his finger hovering over the 'delete post' button here for a while!

    Keep posting evil doctor. Great that you can take it in your stride and not throw the toys out of the cot, unlike some others. Its certainly been a fun couple of days in this thread 

    Youll get more hits than miss, I reckon

    Nah [censored] it Moon, lids off!

    The Weid comment is interesting. He absolutely has the potential to kick 40 goals. By the time he had played 10 games this year he had already kicked 18 goals. In a normal 22 game season,  he's on track to a potential 40 goal season.

    In the last 3 games he went goaless, but that's something I hope weid can build over the summer period.

    Like it Dazzle.

    I want Weid to get stronger through the hips and core. Not necessarily put on more weight, just get stronger so that he doesn't get pushed off the ball as easily.

    He has many good attributes that we underestimate, and is somewhat a confidence player. Presents well, gets to contests, can hold a grab (despite the naysayers) and knows where the cumbers are are around him. He knows his role, but must get stronger to improve it.

    Also needs to nail more set shots.

    All of these things are relatively simple to fix in the scheme of things, pending a big preseason.

    I'm a Weid fan, so to speak...

    5:30am is my morning gym and coffee Mr Wise ?

    Hanging for this to be confirmed. The prospect of Brown in red and blue is exciting. Imagine if we still jag 40 to 50 goals next year?

    If Brown kicks 50, a fit Weid will snag 40 and Jacko 25. Not to mention the small guys scouting around for crumbs. The flag is ours!

    Sorry, got ahead of myself....

    Is there a more redundant phrase than "moving forward"?

    It's not as if time stands still or we can go backwards!

    But it is possible to 'turn the corner'

    Do that often enough and one can move forwards and go backwards

    Hard to find fault with anything Lloyd and Cornes have said here.

    Interesting comments from Lloyd on Eddie Betts and how he has been instrumental in attracting Martin and Williams to the club. Great example of how the value a senior player brings goes beyond on-field performance. Very smart from Carlton. Jones detractors take note please.

    Has Nate Jones been instrumental in attracting key players? Which ones exactly?

  12. Higgins was 1st round pick 17. Played 43 games in 3 years, despite having his brain operation.

    Saints first pick this year is 14. Second isn't until the late 50s. 

    Will he interestingvm to see how they pull this trade off, and any others that might come up for them.
