    Jesse Hogan Trade to Freo

    I didn't always think this, but seemingly it was always going to happen. I'm happy to draw the curtain this year and move on.

    My "gut feel" is very different to Range Rover's. 80/20 he'll be in purple next year.

    I wonder how many of those poster who don't rate May wanted to play Pedersen every week and were livid when Watts was put on the market ? I'm guessing strong correlations. 😦

    The Steven May Thread

    But May is naturally offensive while at the same time a very good negator. He's also 27 and 102KG. He won't get shifted like Oscar is occasionally. It will be interesting how they're used.

    The Steven May Thread

    The notion of FB and CHB has changed. May gets the no.1 key forward, Oscar (or Frost) gets the next tall/resting ruck, and Lever is the intercept.

    No, it's not. Pick 5 and 23 is BETTER than what we paid for him. We gave up one first rounder - pick 3. Our pick 13 then slid to pick 20.

    Due to Olisik's incorrect assertions it seems I also have to post this here. A few things... I doubt you know that every one of those goals was kicked on May. In fact, I know you don't, because Kennedy kicked 4 on him and Riewoldt 6. And key defenders are only as good as team structures and the quality of their midfield. You think May is slow when speed is one of his biggest strengths. This clearly tells me you have no clue about the player you're criticising. The following is from a recent article: In 2016 he (May) was the third-best defender in the competition behind Alex Rance and ahead of Jeremy McGovern, losing just 14 of 71 one-on-ones for the entire year. This season Gold Coast haemorrhaged inside 50s, giving up five more than the next-worst side. The offensive stuff is what elevates him above the dime-a-dozen stoppers. This year he averaged 17.4 disposals (second-most for key defenders), 334 metres gained (second most for key defenders) as well 7.6 intercept possessions, three intercept marks and 6.8 spoils (all above average). Put him into an good side with quality players around him and you have a weapon at full back. They (Melbourne) get Jake Lever back at some stage and improved their defensive mix late, but still were the fourth-easiest side to score against across the entire season. Slot him in alongside Lever and Max Gawn becomes an offensive threat again instead of being forced to play as a seventh defender at times as well as a ruckman. To sum up, Olisik, you're welcome to your opinion, but it's hopelessly misinformed.

    Cheers. That's his "mail", but it would still surprise me. 5 and 23 seems fair.

    That would be disappointing. I don't get too hung up on picks, as it's about outcomes and improving your list based on cards you're dealt, but that would be a poor outcome, imo. That said, I didn't hear his comments and only have your interpretation to assess.

    It needs to be reiterated that 5 and 23 is a BETTER outcome than 10 and 16. The first scenario represents a first and a second, while the second scenario is two firsts. Don't fall into the trap of thinking it must be two firsts.

    That wasn't a "report". That was just thrown up as a likelihood. And they weren't drilling down, just having a chat. Don't take any notice of lightweight conversations on SEN.

    There are plenty of posters that one isn't enamoured with, and I'm sure I fit the bill for some, but this a-clown has almost completely ruined the most highly read thread on Demonland.

    Rating Josh Mahoney

    This was an AFL.com.au rating of our 2015 draft: Nathan Schmook's verdict: Brilliant. The Demons used the incoming points system to perfection to gain picks No.3 and No.7 in this year's draft. They read the play quicker than other clubs, working well with GWS to secure pick No.7 and Bugg. Rating A+

    I was just about to post the same. There was extensive media commentary post the 2015 trading period extolling Mahoney and co. for showing other clubs how to use the new rules to their advantage.
