Could we clone him for Carlton & Collingwood?

 

Edit:- North have never heard of due diligence, get on the phone ask a Melbourne person or supporter or look at his selections, no too hard give him a try. What could go wrong?   hahahahahahha

No we can pass thanks.

 

Edit:- Maybe his role is to provide his picks and the club ignore them, it might just work

In further news Prendergast's wage is to be paid up by the 15 other clubs.

Ben Cousins has been touted for a player welfare role and Mark Neeld for a role in player development.

“LOOK 

No just one of me, isn't that right Barry?

I think they must have really liked Gysberts, we could get more couldn't we Barry, you bet Barry, we could corner the market, is Lucas Cook available?

I struggle to even find the words for it.

I wonder if his position as 'academy dude' came about because his personal sales pitch was 'I picked great players, the greatest, it is all Melbourne's fault for not developing them properly, you should get me to develop them too.'.

North haven't let any of their kids from the last two drafts (2014-15) get any games, not even 15 between the dozen of them.

Bizarrely, two of their three most experienced players under 24 are Hrovat and Williams.

This isn't the bloke that promised Rory Sloane's parents that the MFC would pick him at pick 19 in the 2008 draft??. Then proceeded to overlook him twice- Strauss and then Bennel at pick 35.

Where is Craig Cameron these days, his drafting record would be one of the worse in the AFL

This is such an ignorant comment but I can't be bothered giving a detailed response other than to say while Craig was there we played finals 7 of about 11 years while he was doing the job that is now covered by at least 3 people - Taylor, Viney, O'Donnell. I'm not sure how many full time recruiters we have now but Craig had no full time help.

In the first rookie draft he picked Junior, Nathan Bassett, Daniel Ward, Matthew Bishop and Russell Robertson. Not a bad collection that.

Like anyone associated from that time at Melbourne you never know how much was there fault and how much was other peoples and part of the culture of failure.

Got some decent late picks with Gawn and Jetta, even big Fitz offers more than most late picks. Scully and Trengove were no brainers if we didn't like Dustin Martin. Watts might even have been the right choice if developed properly. Gysberts had the talent.

Strauss, Blease and Tapscott were the 3 top picks that really look bad in hindsight. All 3 had persistent and continuous injuries. But they also had big flaws. Maybe those first 2 don't break their legs and Blease gets a tank developed from an early age and Strauss gets confidence beating up on Eddie Betts and playing consistently. Neither had the work ethic or confidence which sums up MFC at that time.

The stories about Rory Sloane just make me mad. Maybe Barry P had the right idea and somehow we Melbourne'd him in to picking the wrong players.
