I figured some of the rankings here are quite shocking, especially Terry Wallace (the former Tambling selector). Anyway let's start. Dominic SHEED: Is not as good or as high as some consider, good

People keep saying that Queen's Birthday is our Grand Final (which annoys the crap out of me), but Draft day has become our GF.

Craig Smoker yeah???

We need to draft Sheed, WCE will be laughing if they're able to pick him up. Aish may have all the talent in the world but Melbourne needs to learn to stop recruiting skinny kids hoping they'll come on in a few years time. In the AFL you need hard bodies to compete otherwise your talent will get you nowhere. Look at Richmond, stopped goin after the Fiora, Tambling types and have gone for Martin, Conca and Vlastuin in the last few drafts, guys who can impact in their first season or two.

I reckon the 173 cm Lewis Taylor will potentially slide to our second pick at the start of the 2nd round, only because history shows.

Similar to Ruckman, clubs appear concerned about using their fisrt pick on a small/ short player (exc. Collingwoods picks 18, 19 and 20 in the 2012 draft).

Andrew Hooper 172 cm Joint Larke Medal winner 2010: Slid to #35 in the rookies.

Ben Kennedy 174 cm. Another highly rated youngster: Slid to #19 in the 2012 ND.

Nathan Hrovat 174. Won the VM Metro MVP ahead of the likes of O'Rourke (ND pick #2) and slid to pick 21.

If we have the chance of obtaining Taylor with our second pick I would be stoked if the club snapped him up (obviously depended on who else may potentially slide).

The TAC Future Stars Panel went through the entire first round today with Gardner and Crouch dropping out of the top 10 and Zak Jones just making it into the first round although playing in a team that was so badly smashed today wouldn't have helped him much.

2. Melbourne JAMES AISH (South Australia)

3. St. Kilda JOSH KELLY (Sandringham Dragons)

4. W Bulldogs MATT SCHARENBERG (South Australia)

5. Gold Coast JACK BILLINGS (Oakleigh Chargers)

Crouch at #17 is really a surprise.. had 25 possies on VFL debut this year. You'd think if he's there at #20, we would take him for sure. If we were to take Aish at #2, we would have to take an inside player at #20... Only recently has Jones moved from a back half to the middle, so I'm not sure if he is an inside player? Feel free to add info on this.. But one of crouch.Dunstan or, being an optimist, Freeman were there at #20.. you would think they'd be taken over Jones.

I usually get right into the draft. It's been one of the things that keeps me going in crappy years.

I'm finding it very hard to get into now that we have appointed Roo's. Its hard to know who to look at when your not sure if you are going to have first and second round picks.

I guess it will be a lot more exciting when the trading period is over.

I'd be very surprised if Crouch went through to 17 but would love to pick him up.

This draft is relatively weak, with next year's billed as another "super draft".

It wouldn't be surprised to see us trade out of it to a certain extent.

Not overly excited by any players outside the top 5 this year.

Got a feeling if we keep pick 2 we may "reach" for Scharenberg.

I pray that we either receive a priority pick at the start of the second round. #19
or, if sylvia leaves a band 3 compensation pick that should wind up being #21
then Dunstan and Jones slide to out two picks at the start of round 2 to complement Aish

Collingwood MARCUS BONTEMPELLI (Northern Knights)

This kid is going to be something. He is very, very classy, a raking left foot and plays Wing/HBF. If he goes to Collingwood and learns of Pendlebuy watch out

Don't expect Jones to go first round. Just a lot of hype over the past few weeks. It will settle down. He will be there for our second rounder. Dunstan will also be there so here is hoping we do get another pick down there.

Sounds like we will get an end of 1st round PP now so that leaves us with 2,19,21 and somewhere around the 20-25 mark if Sylvia leaves.

Pick 2 for Swallow

pick 19- Zak Jones

pick 21- Luke Dunstan

pick 25- Blake Acres

The article in the Age this morning was pretty adamant that we would not get awarded a PP when the Commission meets today. I hope that your sources are more reliable that those of all the football journalists!

Just what was on the AFL website, I sorta figured an article like that being released at this point in time may be the AFL's way of getting people ready for what is probably going to happen with the PP.

Luke Dunstan shouldn't be picked any earlier than 30.

We'd take him at 20, big bodied midfielder.

I didn't think he was all that clean with his hands, but that said it's a weak draft for mine.

A player like Dunstan could have a ready made impact, if we were to take Aish or Kelly, then Dunstan would be a logical fit at 20.

If we're looking at inside mids i'd still personally rate Zak Jones ahead of Dunstan, if we lose Sylvia the compo may mean we get both which would be nice.

    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. Were th

    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,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    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. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    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
