  1. Preseason Training - Week commencing 4/12/17

    I got along yesterday for a look. Joel Smith is quite a specimen. Let's hope he can stay injury free because he's a great size, super ripped and I believe he's pretty quick, so you can understand why Ben Guthrie said in the AFL.com.au article that the Coaches are incredibly keen to get games into him. Spargo has used his year of shoulder rehab to master the leg weights. Nicely defined quads. I always cringe when small guys automatically get compared to Boomer Harvey in their draft profiles, but I'd suggest Spargo has the frame to become a little ball of muscle like Harvey was. Seems to always look angry and very serious. Hannan has bulked up significantly. Didn't appear to be moving too well with the knee strapped and some more strapping coming out of his sock, but he's noticeably bigger across the chest and shoulders. Dion Johnstone is another one in great shape. Appears the right size now not to be pushed off the footy. Couple of nice low, drilling balls in one of the drills too. Let's hope he can take his chance in the NAB games. Pederson super impressive in some of the running I saw, up the front with Hunt and ANB. Oliver, Petracca and Tyson towards the back. Lewis was helping Filipovic for a little while there with his lining up/visualisation while kicking for goal. Lever just does everything well. Petracca kicks the cover off the ball and I hope he can add a bit of touch into some of his passing to lead as some of the kicks were almost un-markable.
  2. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - HARRISON PETTY

    We haven't played finals for a decade mate. Question everything the football dept do. If Goodwin plays Pederson early last year ahead of Spencer and Tim Smith, we play finals. If Taylor calls out Charlie Curnow instead of Sam Wiedeman a couple of years back, we play finals. They are not always right. Too many sycophants on here.
  3. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - HARRISON PETTY

    Here it is simplified for you. We are out of the super draft next year, so there's another opportunity gone to get a quality midfielder. 3 of our mids are almost done. Only 2 are proven AFL midfielders and will be there in 2020 when we are beating down the door. We don't need another half forward flanker or key position defender. Constable or Petruccelle at 31, and Worpol at 37 would have been better selections given our lack of midfield depth.
  4. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - HARRISON PETTY

    Jones missed 6 weeks last year with a quad and has already done a calf this pre-season. Vince is borderline best 22 and has 1 left. Lewis has 1 good season and 1 ordinary season left. Salem and Brayshaw are far from proven, bona fide afl mids capable of playing 20 good games a season. When Viney misses, as we saw last season - it all falls onto Oliver's shoulders. There is not enough depth. I hope Brayshaw and Salem finally begin to justify their draft ranking, and that Maynard, vandenBerg and Harmes come on to help this. I like the look of Petty, but it certainly wasn't a need. Our key defenders are young and developing. The way they have pumped games into him, our FD seem to have great faith in Oscar as a long term prospect. Unlike the midfield, no one retires in a year or two, in fact they'll just be entering their prime. Petty now develops behind Oscar, Lever, Frost and Keilty, who have 8-10 years ahead of them. Who knows how Tom Mac goes as a forward when the oppposition start putting work into him as a forward. I also see no need to bring in a medium forward who is a clone of Mitch Hannan. Fritsch needs two seasons in the gym and has not proven himself of being able to pinch hit in the midfield at VFL level. Once he puts on 8 kilos, will he be good enough to dislodge Petracca, Hannan, Melksham, ANB, Harmes, Bugg etc from a half forward flank? We have them coming out of our ears! Anyway, good luck to them and I hope I'm wrong, but for mine, Fritsch and Petty picks should have been Pettrucelle and Worpol.

    Tom Mac will be Forward 5 minutes if Weideman comes on mate. How many backs do you need? Richmond and the Bulldogs have won flags with how many dominant Key Positions Forwards? Matches are won and lost in the midfield. We added a dwarf 170cm forward mid, and an outside winger that averages 16 touches in the NEAFL. Petrucelle and Worpol were still on the board. I hope I'm wrong, but I see the midfield as seriously lacking depth in a year or two when Vince, Jones and Lewis are gone.
  6. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - BAYLEY FRITSCH

    Some of the Phantom drafts mentioned West Coast were really keen. They took the extra time for the very next pick. I reckon we threw them. Too early for mine.
  7. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - HARRISON PETTY

    Petrucelle the next pick? Best available before needs. Given the plethora of key and medium sized defenders we already have developing, I'm not sure about this one.
  8. WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - OSKAR BAKER

    There is a 3 minute highlights video of him available on the afl.com.au Draft Machine. http://www.afl.com.au/draft/draft-machine Type in Oscar Baker. Looks a nice prospect but it almost looks like a non-contact league in that video, and I'm not sure AFL players will buy the candy he is selling.

  10. Guide to the Draft

    I reckon he's more Rory Sloane than Rory Sloane.
  11. Draft Pick #29 (ex 27)

    Mick Ablett must not do much list analysis before he runs with these suggestions. In an earlier show after we had brought in Lever he said that, given we love Lever so much, Oscar Claravino would be a good pick up as a similar player. Now he's got us taking a ruckman to play at Casey for the next 8 years behind Gawn?
  12. Stewart Crameri to the Dees?

    Based on the fact he's had 5 seasons at AFL level where he's kicked over 30 goals in a season - numbers that Harmes and Bugg could only dream of. Put him in a training singlet and you'll be drooling over him in no time.
  13. Stewart Crameri to the Dees?

    When fit, Crameri's a better player than Harmes and Bugg, who were regulars. He'd also have Kent and vandenBerg covered. Melksham and ANB's form was pretty solid. He'd probably compete with Hannan for a spot. I like Hannan, and am hopeful with a full pre-season he can be involved in games for longer. Hannan's also a heck of a lot quicker when it hits the deck. I see the forward line as something like: Petracca, McDonald, Melksham Garlett, Hogan, Hannan But you never have everyone available and form dips, so I'd be very happy to rookie Crameri.
  14. Sam Gibson

    Smart pick up by Adelaide. They lose a bit of run with Brodie Smith's injury and Charlie Cameron's likely departure, and give up nothing to secure a capable wingman who provides quality depth and insurance in case anything goes wrong with a David Mackay etc while in their premiership window.
  15. Mahoney, get away

    Up in the air? You're kidding? Kelly went at 2 and Bontempelli at 4. They are 300 game elite bona fide A+ stars. Our Football Dept, recruiters, scouts all farked up enormously thinking that pick 2 was worth more bundled into a deal for Dom Tyson than seeing the potential in those kids. Tyson and Salem are just good ordinary footballers. And to say "we would have taken Billings" just further proves how wrong the FD got it. We would have got Hunt without the trade as we had pick 58 before the trade and took Hunt at 57, so take him out of your equation.
