yeah it’s on good record that we made a strong play for May before Melbourne offered pick 5. We offered pick 9 which happened to be used on Naughton(thank damn that didn’t go ahead). You have to give up something really good to get them.
Melbourne got May a season after we drafted Naughton.
Spot on. In 2017 Melbourne got Jake Lever for pick 10 and we drafted Naughton at 9.

Steven May for pick 6 was 2018. GC used it on Ben King and we got Bailey Smith at 7.

We have had good success with untried Geelong defenders in the past, potentially we could go after another one in Nathan Kreuger

I'd be looking at Astbury.

Shai Bolton's next conract grows bigger by the week. Balta would have had a decent pay rise. Prestia, Grimes and Cotchin are all locked away. Dusty is supposedly on 1.2 per season and Tom Lynch's big money years start in 2022 (reportedly still owed 5mil over the next 4 seasons).

They still have fan faves in Riewoldt, Edwards and Houli yet to sign and teams have been able to pry out their small forwards recently and Castagna, Rioli and Stack are out of contract.

Could be the perfect storm needed to lure him out. Give him an extra year and 150k more per year than the Tiges are willing to pay.

Sam Weideman as Melbourne seem committed to playing Ben Brown. Could make a top line Defender
We aren't getting weiderman. We will look after our young list and then poach someone cheap. We have a lot of good players coming off contract soon. We need to be realistic with expectations. The only way we get a top liner is by losing dunkley or Smith

So we are in line for TWO top liners this off season?

If Weideman asked for a trade considering Melbourne aren't giving him a game they couldn't get a lot in the way of draft capital.
Or dollars for that matter, highly unlikely too happen but would be quizzing his management to gauge any possible interest

Melbourne would ask for a 1st rounder and Weiderman would want some money. What makes you think hes going to be a good defender? It is just unrealistic. The one we really missed out on was Allir from Port. We get him I think we would be pretty hard to beat and he wasnt expensive on contract or trade

Tom McDonald will go back in the backline and that will open a spot for Weideman

His name has been mentioned for years on this board but still think McStay could be the man for this. I played juniors with him and he's always been a much more natural defender.
I coached him in Juniors.... along with Christian Petracca and Marc Pittonet.
Good young fellas all. Park Orchards Golden or a little later on?
Would love to see him in the colours!

This is what happens when an obstinate Beveridge refuses to play JUH, who has clearly been ready since round one.

Other teams are already sniffing around and Dedoro is the best in the business at getting in the ear of disgruntled guns wasting away in the 2nds.

The jungle drums are starting to beat that JUH isn't at all happy with not playing round one and is fielding offers for his next contract.
