  1. This team is broken. Loser mentality after half time. Something is up with Brayshaw. Absolute shadow of his former self.
  2. With Tom McDonald injured for the year, it has become even more apparent that we are light on for genuine KPF's with only Weideman holding the fort and still developing. Tim Smith is sadly injury prone and already 28, with his ideal position as a 3rd tall. Preuss may provide another target while ruck relieving but he is not a long term solution to our forward line. We have no other genuine AFL quality KPF's on our list. Time for some stupid draft hypothesis that belong in fantasy land. We should go hard for Jeremy Cameron. He is 26 and out of contract at the end of next year as a RFA. I believe I read somewhere here that Geelong have been in his ear and believe he's gettable. We should attempt to trump them this year with an offer of our 2019 1st as well as our 2020 1st rounder. In return we get Cameron and Essendon's first rounder they hold from their Shiel trade. Maybe a balance of swaps of second and third rounders to even it up. In: Jeremy Cameron, Pick 9 (as the ladder stands) Out: Pick 3 (as it stands), Future 1st. Maybe we swap a future second for their third or something along those lines. This gives them maximum compensation while giving us a first rounder that I believe we are required to use this year (unclear on the exact rules of that). It also enables them to take a player before a bid on Tom Green comes in which might be somewhat influential. Then we go hard for Coniglio as a free agent this year. Trade our current 2nd rounder for Langdon (yes, freo will want more) and pick up best available with pick 9. Do I need to put down the pipe?
  3. Ads are getting smarter.
  4. As people have already pointed out, he's found multiple best 22 players from late in draft. Regardless, I don't think you can safely say that every person recruited was solely a Taylor decision which it seems that you're implying. I would imagine he would bring extensive research and create profiles on multiple targets that is then presented to the football department. Further meetings would then take place with group discussions surrounding the pros and cons of each player. It is perfectly reasonable to suggest that Taylor would have a different order of merit compared to Goodwin or others in the department who would consider things like list balance and may prefer certain personality types or skill sets.
  5. Well, 2019 is proper boned. Can't believe that the draft will become more relevant than September this year. At least we'll actually have a 1st rounder to use. Draft: Matthew Rowell Noah Anderson Other top 5-10 suggestions..? Trade/FA: The dream but won't happen.... Coniglio Would also love Fiorini from sun's or Florant from swans but probably not worth speculating over. Other slightly less unrealistic options that are either out of contract or not getting a good run at it... Zac Jones Ed Langdon Lewis Taylor Matthew ling Nakia Cockatoo Shai Bolton Darcy Parish Jayden Laverde Jack Martin Brayden Sier Any half decent small forwards available? P.s. I'm not advocating that all these players would be a good fit at mfc. Was looking forward to this season for 5 months, ugh...
  6. Great work, thanks for the time and energy you put in. If I may add a small adjustment, in 2015 pick 29 which we traded to the Suns was used by them to pick up Joshua Schoenfeld at pick 34. This was pushed back 5 spots due to academy picks for Mills, Hopper, Kennedy, Hipwood and Himmelberg.
  7. Useless fact. Jesse Hogan leaves MFC as it's 42nd highest goal kicker.
  8. AFL trade wrap today says talks are progressing between Freemantle and GWS for Lobb and suggested the following swaps could be on the cards. GWS give Lobb and Pick 14 Freo give Pick 11 and Pick 23 If that happens then I can see a trade happening for Hogan quickly with Melbourne receiving 5 and 14. We will possibly have to even out with some later pick swaps for Freo to be happy. Guess it's all dependent on Freo trading Neale and learning to not be a d!ck. So probably won't happen actually.
  9. Mathew Ling? Probably unlikely as he was a late first round draft pick last year and signed a one year extension. Is a Vic kid that could be tempted home perhaps? Pacey outside mid I believe.
  10. Hardly a frenzy. You do realise that you have replied to a topic on a Melbourne supporter website in the "draft and trade" forum? Not sure why we can't speculate about potential players that could be involved in a deal for Hogan. Or can we only speculate on players that have been directly linked by the media? Yes it is unlikely and a deal, if any, will probably only involve picks. However I would hope the club is asking the question much like Adelaide inquired about Petracca when we came knocking for Lever. We have the upper hand and should leverage as much as we can if a deal were to happen. Speaking of being on the draft and trade forum, can you recommend any cheese boards? I would put a wish list down but would hate to offend anyone's sensibilities. Stuff it, I'm going for a stone and marble board. Come at me.
  11. 2017 Pick 5 - Freemantle Dockers Age: 18 Height: 186 Weight: 85 kg In the event that Hogan is successfully poached by Fremantle, I believe we should make this kid one of our demands along with top 10 pick. He did sign an extension earlier this year, however was the last of the top 10 from the 2017 draft to do so with a couple articles speculating he would be obtainable. For reference, Dom Tyson was traded to Melbourne after signing an extension in the same year as well as Schache from Brisbane to Western Bulldogs. It can happen. Freemantle want to offer Hogan buckets of cash year on year, fine... time for us to play hardball and demand a quality Vic kid in return. Knightmares write-up. Best position: Inside midfielder Height, weight: 186cm, 85kg Recruited from: Eastern Ranges Projected draft range: Top 10 Similar to: Trent Cotchin October Ranking: 3 Rationale: Cerra is as dominant and classy as any midfield in this year's draft crop. Less exposed form and slight lack of explosiveness is all that places him slightly behind Rayner and Davies-Uniacke. Strengths: Contested ball-winning Wins first possession at stoppages Stoppage work Wins clearances Stands up through tackles Strong build Powerful mark overhead One-on-one marking Clean at ground level Clean ball user on both sides of the body Decision-making Vision Composure under pressure Production Evasiveness Endurance Workrate Best suited through midfield but can also be utilised forward or back Weaknesses: Acceleration
  12. Win either game and we'll make finals, only positive I have
