WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - CAMERON PEDERSEN

Recommended Posts

Mature age - 25 years old. Played 16 games for North, but only two this year. Can't get a game because of Petrie, Hansen, and Tarrant. Played 14 games last year and looked pretty good averaging 5 marks and kicked 18 goals. He's 193cm's and has been playing ruck in the VFL. He has been in the bests 11 times in 15 games, including 9 in a row, and is averaging 6.5 marks a game.

I haven't seen enough of him, but I remember he came on the scene last year and did well for a debut season. Some will say that if Hansen is getting a game ahead of him he must be no good, but I'm more interested in posters who actually have a good idea of him. How agile is he and what is his pace like ? Could he help Clark in the forward-line for a few years ?

I thought he looked good in a couple of games last year. Certainly comfortable at senior level. And certainly worth a look.

You'd delist Cook and recruit Pedersen in a heartbeat.

Can he win a clearance?

As you possibly know, for me its mostly on TV but with that caveat.....

He seems like a combative type and good hitup player from deep. Maybe a bit "same/same" as Clark?

Would he inhibit Fitzpatrick's development in the same spot? Will Fitz even make it?

Not sure about the engine or sideways movement but very good depth I'd have thought as a lead up type.

No, you would.

Flushing down the toilet the 2 years spent developing a KPF for nothing really is as stupid as it sounds.

Toilets have got to be flushed at some point or they get backed up.

I saw him and liked him. But is he only 193?. We really need another biggy for that key CHF slot.

Brad Scott would say hes a required player(depth like H-mac), so it would take a good pick to get the deal done.

He's not worth #3 #4 or #13 and our 2nd rounder which will hopefuly be taken on JV.

And I can't see NM wanting any of our fringe/reject players, They would only listen if you threw up a name like Sylvia or Frawley (not gonna happen). It would need a third party to get any deal done.

Will be traded or delisted. Can't play a key post role at AFL level. He is an oversized ruck rover playing at his level in the VFL.

Khan Haretuku from Frankston Dolphins?

198cm, 98kg key forward and kicked a few bags of goals in a forward line starved of opportunities. He turns 23 next month also so we wouldn't be waiting on a kid.

Also has the ability to pinch hot in the ruck if need be.

His first quarters are his best. He drops off after that.

If you had seen him yesterday at Casey you would do a double flush.

Surprised he did not "do a McKernan" (play one good game for the year) and kick six against us.

Reported in AFL.com that we were in the hunt for Pedersen. I'd be rapt to be honest. I rate this bloke highly in terms of moving forward and kicking a few.

I had him in my suprcoach team last year so watched a few games andvwas impressed with whatbi saw. I am puzzled though of the lack of selection in the senior side, was he injured this year?

Will be interesting but this one caught my eye not so much for the hypothetical trade options but more just the fact that I really rate this bloke as a player.

I assume Scott didnt get along with him like Neeld/Moloney - no idea but it seemed off because he looked very impressive when he did play.

The article mentions his VFL form being very good, does anyone have any insight into how he was performing?

Wonder if this signals Collingwood think Cloke is GONE - or is it just back-up for Jolly. If its just back up for Jolly does not exactly sound like an exciting role. But it does sound like a player of interest for us - if Martin goes.

Insane that North would think they could demand our 2nd round pick considering they won't even play him.
