Any deals to secure a pick in the mini-draft must be finalised by 5pm on Thursday, 13 October, with the mini-draft likely to be held on the closing day of trade week on Monday, 17 October.

O'Meara also sounds like he has no problems leaving Perth.

I think our priority during trade week should be using our compo picks to acquire the pick for either O'Meara or Crouch.

Along will filling the holes in our list, of course.

Might have to and I wouldn't hesitate and then some. O'Meara for Scully - it's a no-brainer. Sure GWS get a great deal but let's worry about us, not them.

If that happens.... I would love to see Adelaide screw GWS over and take O'Meara anyway...

Maybe the MFC, the ones who are professional and do this for a living, just didn't think he was worth throwing everything at. I trust that they know whats best and what he is worth. A lot on here see

I am still not certain how all this works at the edges...

They have two trade weeks to get these deals done.

How do they judge the best deal, the second best deal, etc?

Who is doing the judgement exactly?

Answer me these questions people. And don't give me links, I have read the links.

I want the truth!

Good find Lulz. That's great news about the deals having to be stitched up by end of Thursday trade week - I was worried Sheedy and Gumby would hold up all other trades until the death.

RPFC, my understanding is the trades work like any other, there's a week long Trade Period starting on Monday, half way through is the deadline for these trades. Clubs offer GWS trades, GWS makes a decision on what to accept and gives the picks out in order, clubs are bidding for pick 1 first, then pick 2 - through to as many as GWS want to trade up to the maximum of 4.

From what i have gathered is that u can bid for pick 1 or pick 2, which are seperate bidding systems!! GWS then choose the best possible deal for each pick and hand out picks 1 or 2. They do have 4 pick and they dont all have to be used this year.

someone plz correct me if im wrong!!

A question i have of my own is if we traded our pick after our 1st rnder to gws, when they use that pick does it go off our ladder position or theres?? Therefore if they finish last next year and they get that pick they will have picks 1 and 2!!

I thinkn they have to trade all 4...

They've got a maximum of 4 over 2 years but they don't HAVE to trade any. They'd be mad if they didn't but they don't have to. Thety can't take O'Meara this year, but if they don't trade any this year, they can pick up O'Meara with ND pick 1 (which they'll probably have for finishing bottom next year) in 2012 when he eligible.

rpfc surely the reason no one understands the rules is because the vaguer they are, the more the AFL can manipulate them to the their advantage.

Am I too cynical ?

I still don't understand why the result is to be announced after the trades are finalised on Monday 17 October.

If you wanted to trade John Smith for O'Meara as part of the mini draft and had to wait to find out the result, then you might find yourself holding a player you don't want after the trades if you happen to be the losing bidder.

1 more thing - how can a club be given Pick 2 for example if there are two picks to be 'awarded' next trade week? Suddenly Pick 2 becomes Pick 4 and Prendergast has an apopleptic fit as he is pushed down two places.

What incentive is there for clubs do get this done this trade week if they can be gazumped a year later?

RPFC the mini draft is totally seperate to the national draft, this does not affect our picks in ND. i think there are about 26 17yr olds in the mini draft where theres only 4 picks but gws dont have to hand all 4 picks out this year!!

Yes, I know!!

What I am saying is that what 'picks' will be handed out this trade week? Picks 1 and 2?

How can that be when the Picks are judged on the value of the trade. They may be superceded next trade week.

And the teams that get supereceded might have thought it not great that they get the 4th pick and they also may think it would have been best to wait until next trade week to try and get Pick 1.

I repeat - What incentive is there for clubs to negotiate this trade week?

Very little from what I can see.

In your scenario, if GWS only decided to give up two picks in the mini-draft and we were given pick 2, then we get to pick the second most talented player from a pool of 26 or so 17yr olds (with O'meara likely gone at no.1)

The following year GWS have to trade the last of these 2 picks to clubs who then auction of for a new batch of highly rated 17yr olds born from 1 Jan 1995 to 30 April 1995.

GWS can determine how many picks they will offer up to maximise their trade value to gain experienced players or more draft picks.

The thing i'm not clear about is when GWS make it known how many picks are available this year. Would it be before bidding?

Well clubs can bid for what pick they want!! so if a club feels pick 1 would cost too much they can therefore bid for 1 of the later picks!!

Players in this mini draft will not be in nxt years mini draft coz its 17 yr olds. so thats the incentive if theres a player u really want eg. o'meara. He will be in the ND nxt year!!

There's Trade week this year, there's a Mini Draft this year at the end of the Trade Week, GWS can trade up to 4 picks in this year's Mini Draft, deals have to be finalised by Thursday of the Trade Week. The traded picks are 1.2.3. up to 4 in this years Mini Draft. If GWS don't trade any picks there's no Mimi Draft this year. If they trade all 4 picks this year, there's no Mini Draft next year.

If GWS trade less than 4 picks this year, then next year same thing happens as this year with the remaining picks . Next year's picks become picks 1,2,3 etc in next year's Mini Draft.

What's so hard to understand?

I imagine the keep trading up to 4 until they stop. For example, they trade pick 1, then theyy trade pick 2, then they say "that's it for this year" unless they get an offer too good to refuse for pick 3.

GWS can't trade pick 2 until they've traded pick 1 - what happens if they can't do a suitable trade for pick 1? They'll have to trade the picks in order and clubs will be bidding for pick 1 first. I expect it to go down to the wire on Thursday with clubs bidding for pick 1 - the offer GWS thinks is best will get pick 1, they'll offer pick 2 to the next best offer - the club making that offer can accept pick 2 or decline, etc until the the offers are not acceptable or time runs out.

IF GWS likes the offers it gets from this.... all 4 can be done this year. If they hate it, they pull up stumps and say try harder next year. The 4 picks are just that.

Seems like you are geting confused by reading too much into it.

OK, IF Gold Coast say we want to give you pick 4 in the national draft for a pick in the mini draft. If that's the best offer then GWS Say here have pick 1. Someone else might trump that offer with players, and then GC might say not interested without it being pick 1. It would be no different to anything else that goes on in trade week... except you are trading for picks. Some clubs might be gunning really hard for pick 1 to get O'Meara... where other clubs like Geelong, Hawks, Collingwood would see it as an opportunity to get a player who is possibly a top 5 pick in two years time (again there is a lot of speculation in draft order) but they can jump the queue offering a player and a pick given the likelihood to get a top 5 pick after being a top 4 club is highly improbable

The incentive to trade is to improve your list, same as it always is!

I would imagine they just see what they are offered... and see if any club is prepared to accept pick 3 or 4 and they get enough value.... All 4 would be on offer this year, but as to whether they use them all is another thing.

yer i know that!! But from what ive heard is all the picks are seperate bidding systems. so if a club feels pick 1 would cost too much, they then wait to bid for pick 2 when pick 1 is gone!!

Where have you "heard" that "picks are seperate bidding systems" - link please. How will they know "pick 1 would cost too much"? A club could wait until pick 1 is gone before getting involved but why do that - they might make the best offer and GWS might accept it for pick 1. It just makes no sense.

Think I was getting confused when they started throwing around the words "auction" and "bidding" when in essence it’s just more trade negotiations that happen every year, except you'll be trading for the right to select a player that won't be eligible to play until 2013.

I didn't realise there are effectively two drafts with two different pools of 17 year olds if GWS don't accept all 4 trades this trade week.

Makes more sense now.

I wonder how clubs will try to gazump each other to get a pick or the number 1 pick?

Will we see extra steak knives added on in the auction like atmosphere?

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren.

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
