Yep. Because all 18 y.o ruckman stink and you should never draft them..

I knew there was a reason for this absurd suggestion...

You are absurd.If indeed, a player is worth considering, it should be or it’s our option to mention it.

It is my understanding,Tom has just been interviewed by Essendon ,awaiting Woosha to come back to Essendon to qualify things He would make a wonderful get in my opinion.Got a 72 hit out one week followed up by 60 in the VFL.Not bad indeed.Killed Preuss when they came up against each other.Pruess was not really rated in the VFL this year.He had quite a disappointing year.Tom would still have a 5/6;years ahead of him with a very strong developed body already.

i hope J-Money, Vines and John have a real good look at this bloke.....a great pick up indeed.

As I've discussed before. He'll be a rookie list option at best.

Definitely a good dominant VFL ruckman thats for sure.

Tom will be picked up by North as a rookie , by the 1st December.....Demons loss ...( for North - a replacement for Preuss ).

Demons loss? How so? Footscray didn’t want him why should we?

Because he is a better player  than Preuss in my opinion.

That’s the problem, we have gone for kids and they have failed...need mature bodies for this role.

I'm hoping he just goes on Casey's list so we can play Bradtke forward. We need a mature body for that role he would be perfect but if he's off to North there is nothing we can do.

Who was the best player for Box Hill in the GF? IMO if Campbell was playing for us we would have had a better chance of winning.

Drunkn can tell us who the rucks are for Casey this year, but I hope to hell we don't kill Bradtke.

As stated Tom has been picked up by North to replace Pruess.We had the chance this draft to pick up a tall, such as Campbell, but didn’t ....did not pick up a tall at all.

We have only 2 Rucks, and 3 tall forwards on our list inclusive of T.Smith ...to me a bad draft,especially the rookie pick.

Weid and T Mac can pinch hit in the ruck if needed.   We played Gawn solo all last season with those guys relieving him.

We have gotten stronger with Preuss.

That is only your opinion, i will trust the opinions of the people running the football department.

No, waste of a list and rookie spot. 

Rather give a promising under 23yo ruck/forward a go. 

Plus you mentioned Chris Connolly. Yuck.

If you saw Chris Connolly play football - usually well beaten against height, weight and reputation - you would not say 'Yuck'. That guy was a terrific footballer who played 'above his weight' week in, week out to terrific effect in very weak MFC teams - for several arduous years in terms of win-loss outcomes. His onfield victories against big names were stacked up like a pack of cards at the one-on-one or two-on-one contests. Even his aerial duels were the source of unexpected poise and power. It may not have transferred to his coaching career in all regards but it was difficult, at that time, to discount his game interpretation.

It would not be good form to discount the Preuss we picked up - he is highly motivated, young and teachable, driven to succeed in a Max environment and very likely to come out of the blocks of the MFC with roaring form and appetite to invoke opposition fear, trepidation and uncertainty at the widespread level. He is no 'Gentleman Cox', at all. At Preuss' age with his experience so far, Maxy was well known as 'Gawky', and he developed somewhat from that crassness. Preuss is going to murder opponents and play on as a very big part of our team.

Agree , Connolly was a very solid footballer for us, in a totally embarrassing period for the club.

Was one of my favs at the time. Of course being from the same town helped.

Fair point.....and so must I, but, if one of our only two rucks go down....what happens then...also, If TMac goes down or Weid does not come up, then...we can blame the club...agree?

I also understand your point of view and I agree.But, to be able to pick up a ruckman as a rookie, such as Campbell would have been a worthwhile in my opinion.To have at least 7 small forwards on our list rather than 3 ruckman, is the factor I question.

Tom was interviewed by Essendon, Adelaide and North Melbourne and will join North this week whilst Melbourne showed no interest.I question this attitude.And the fact that Chris Connolly knew his family extemely well and somebody like Kelly O’Donnell played with him...a further factor I question why did he not even get interviewed .He passed a medical at 3 clubs that interviewed him. It is over now, but, we need to pick up someone in a year or two if Bratke does not seem to make it..hope he does .

    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

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The

    DRAFT STORY: THE BYSTANDERS by Whispering Jack

    It was an eerie feeling, like floating on air high above the events taking place on the ground below. This was the New Draft, a two day festival of little importance to Melbourne supporters on the first night and seemingly, of little consequence on the following day. It was as if we were the bystanders of the 2018 AFL National Draft. From the time the Demons traded away their first round selection in this year’s event as part of the deal to secure Jake Lever more than 12 months ago, it was
