Bolton struggles to get his message across to the players, his club or the AFL in general.

Perhaps he should get himself a milk crate.

The rejection of the pp is a good sign.  It is the second time this year the AFL Commission have turned down an AFL Admin proposal.  The first was when Gill had set up a fanfare press conf to announce the GF would be a twilight game only to have the Commission knock it on the head.

The reason for knocking back the pp's is:  "...Carlton have got 18 first-round picks and they'll get the No.1 pick again this year.  "Gold Coast have got 15 first-round picks on their list and they're going to get picks two and 15 this year if Tom Lynch goes to another club...they'll get pick three..."

Well hello, as if blind freddy couldn't see that in advance

When combined with the Commission's stance on pokies this is good progress with some accountability for Gill and Co.  When Fitzpatrick was head of the Commission it just rubber stamped what Gil and Co wanted (especially if it helped Carlton).

They're effectively getting 2 second round picks! It's just disguised.

They might get a Tim Kelly and a Bayley Fritsch. 

Or a Mitch Hannan and Tom Stewart. 

This isn't progress at all.

Don't care what they get as long as it isn't a high priority pick. 

The truth is even if either side got pick 1 in the draft, would that improve their on-field performance next year?  As Gil and co have noted Carlton have 18 first round picks in their side already!  One more will not get them off the bottom.

To do so you have to trade to get multiple high picks over a couple of years...just like we did.  That way you have a group of young skilled players coming through together. 

If Carlton want to do that, then put Cripps on the table, and start putting a team together with what he can attract.

I don’t think either club can complain about the outcome. Based on lady year’s draft, they are getting access to players who would be available in the 20s or 30s. If they select or trade those picks well, it should be adequate in terms of assistance.

Terry Wallace has revealed his top 10 players outside the AFL system who clubs should consider recruiting in this year’s draft. I think he erred in omitting Sam Collins of Werribee who I would rank ahead of anyone on this list.

Plough’s top 10 potential draftees outside the AFL system

Plough’s top 10 state level players (not in any order):

Mitch Grigg (Norwood/SANFL)
Shane McAdam (Sturt/SANFL)
Josh Clayton (Southport/NEAFL)
Michael Gibbons (Williamstown/VFL)
Ryan Gilmore (Townsville/Gold Coast Academy)
Josh Corbett (Werribee/VFL)
Sam Sturt (Peninsula Grammar/Victoria)
Jye Bolton (Claremont/WAFL)
Jordan Morrissey (County Carlow/Ireland)
Will Hayes (Footscary/VFL)

... and there are a couple of handy players at Casey who he has overlooked.

Carlton and Gold Coast have used their mature age entitlements with the former trading theirs and GCS keeping them.

McAdam is off to Adelaide while the Suns have taken Corbett.

Nathan Krueger (South Adelaide) is off to the Cats. Chris Burgess (West Adelaide) and Sam Collins (Werribee) also join Gold Coast.

There are still others around worth consideration.

So Carlton trade their 2 picks to Adelaide and Geelong respectively for more ND picks and GC used their 3 picks on players?

AFL website journalist Ben Guthrie has produced his listing on players within SANFL, VFL, NEAFL and WAFL that could be drafted. 

Noted Demons could be interested in Hayden McLean, 19 yo from Sandringham VFL and previously Sandringham Dragons U18s. Definitely one to consider if we miss out on drafting in Bailey Williams.  

McLean was unlucky not to get drafted in 2017.  Forward ruckman who provides ruck relief.  Could be a very handy backup for Weid/Tmcd. I think Dees offer him a good chance to develop in AFL environment and maybe a few games in 2019.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
