WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - JAKE LEVER

Recommended Posts

The thing is, if he digs his heels in again over lever and forces him into the draft, they’d be passing up a good deal no reason. 

Sorry brett but if danger is worth 9 and 28 

10 and 27 is more than fair for lever. You set the bar.

Every single year this happens. I remember the Gold Coast guy saying the exact same thing re. O'Meara. Brisbane were super strong re. Aish. Both ended up at their club of choice. You also need to factor in emotion, how would YOU be feeling if Petracca requested a trade to Collingwood three days after losing a GF we should have won? Yeah, I thought so.

Burton will calm down and soon realise we're good and fair to deal with. We paid Essendon slight overs (at the time) for Melksham and they were good enough to return the favour with Hibberd for slight unders the following year. 

Playing hardball gets you nowhere.

Lever is just about worth two first rounders outside the top 10. He's a very good player, although I question his selection in the AA squad. He's also injury prone. But draft picks are overrated, if it ends up being 10 and 20 or something for Lever then I won't be losing any sleep over it.

If we could trade pick 10 and somehow end up with, say, two picks in the 16-18 range, then fair deal. But if we throw in 10 and another first-round pick, it's major overs. If it's pick 10 then a pick in the early-mid 20s will get it done. And if Adelaide baulk at that, then we can point to Dangerfield, Eddie, and Scottie Thompson.

That was the best interview BT has done, to hear Lever say it feels sooooooo good.

Yep, Lever made it absolutely clear, he wants to join the Dees.

How long is the interview? Only thing I could find was on the CH7 Facebook page which was only about 1:50 long

About 2 minutes, was on the channel 7 sports segment, more like a coffee and chat. I'm sure the more computer savvy Demonlanders will have it here soon or even before I post.

He sounds a compassionate and thoughtful young man.  He genuinely looked happy when talking of joining the Dees.

Will be a terrific asset for us on and off the field. 

Should also go well with sponsors - quite articulate.

He is only 21 and he is a gun, will soon become a fan favorite and will be a vital cog in our quest for the holy grail.

A big summer woking on his 1 on 1 defending is what is needed for Lever.  Hogan will be a great training partner in that regard.

Will he be the next Rance/G Jakovich, or will he just be a better version of Jared Rivers?
