Not sure if this is too early, but I'm keen to give it a crack! Couple of things;

* Assume all listed players are fit. At this stage, we don't know if anyone wont be available for selection by round 1, so let's assume they are all ready to go.

* I am including Joel MacDonald, assuming he will be taken in the PSD.

* I didn't include rookies as I'm not 100% sure on the rules of picking them (ie do we need players on the long term injury list before they can play?).

* Had to put Jack Watts in the "new" group as I couldn't fit him in the "young bulls" group.

Good luck! Thank god I'm not a selector!!!

not sure aboutt blease however after missing so much footy. Might push Green into the middle, Petterd into a pocket and someone else - possibly MacDonald if we get him onto the bench.

I would have thought that Blease was even further behind Watts, with only just finishing school, having a broken leg and playing very little (if any) football at Casey.

If McDonald is not captain he would not be in my best 22 as he will take a spot of a developing midfielder, but I think in all likelihood he will be.

I think this list includes 11 old bulls, 8 young bulls and 3 newies. That sounds like a good balance. There's a great article in 'The Age' today on Paul Roos. He says he won't play pick 6 Gary Rohan in 2010 because the gap between TAC and AFL is too big. He says the youngsters get shattered when they find out what it takes to be an AFL player.

That's why my only difference would be Wonna instead of Scully for round 1. We've got 8 guys on our list who have never played a game of AFL. DB made a big point about giving the kids time to develop so I think they will gradually introduce these new kids over the year. The exceptions will be Gawn and Fitzpatrick who wont be expected to play senior football till at least 2011.

Geese I love the look of that team!

The only change I would make would be to swap Blease with Aussie and chuck Tapscott as first emergency!

The thing I hate about making team sheets is all of the players that miss out: Maric, Jetta, Cheney, Dunn, Strauss etc

Rivers, Jetta, Bennell, Cheney and McNamara were unlucky not be selected.

I think Miller, PJ, Bell, Bartram and Dunn from the senior list and Meesen, Newton, Spencer and Hughes off the rookie list are all playing for their careers this year. Bail and Healey are probably outside chances to be delisted at years end but only if a few of these guys step up. I think we'll probably only see 3-5 delistings per year for the next 2 years.

And just to get you salivating I did a team of players under 22 at Rd 1 next year. Don't think any other teams could match it. Doubt many other teams would be able to make a full team of U/22's let alone complete with emergencies.

If your going to put Watts in the "new group", then you should also include Blease, Strauss, Bennell, Jetta, Bail and McNamara.........Mckenizie?

Jurrah aswell......

There are a number of players already who are a bit "iffy" to be considered for Round 1. I consider those players to be amongst: Garland, Blease, Strauss, Wonna( due to injuries) Scully, Trengove. Gysbers( due to being raw recruits)

Of the newies I believe Tapscott may be the "bolter" due to his advanced physical development. My team therefore

I have concerns with Watts and Jurrah in key forward positions. Their bodies just aren't big or strong enough for this role at the moment. They'd get smashed, and Watts has indicated he wont fill this role for a while. I see Miller as a prefered option in the short term.

Another option here is Martin. I'd like to see the club give him one role, rather than moving him everywhere like last season.

That forward line is way too small/under-developed IMO. Watts can't hold down CHF atm. I assume you've decided Garland won't be fit.

Neither can Brad Miller, for different reasons. Sylvia, Bate and Green in particular have to fill the void at CHF between them whilst we wait for Watts to get stronger and Jurrah to get fitter and cover more ground. Petterd is also handy in that area. Trengove has strong hands and a good tank, the half forward line should be a nice place for him to start, in a similar role to Nev Jetta this year (who will also be pushing for a role around half forward or midfield).

I doubt we will have a St Kilda set up where Riewoldt does 80% of the work around half forward. I think we will be more like the bulldogs where they rotate 6 or more through CHF with Murphy and Johnson taking most of the work. Even Geelong deliver to Chapman out infront with precise foot skills as much as Mooney.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place.

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for.

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.
