The Josh Kennedy Revelation

Recommended Posts

I'd do 2,3 and 23 for Kennedy and Mitchell but don't think they'd trade Mitchell if their best midfield so won't happen

I wouldn't. That's still overs. Mitchell couldn't crack the 1sts.

Yeah in Sydney's midfield. What a hack!

This all seems very fishy. Clarke and Lumumba trades blowing up, no frost deal, contrary to Mahoney chat just a few hours ago.

Could this be a very well played troll?

Maybe not a troll but misinformed I would say.

Who will we take at 2 and 3.

Balmey reckons Lumumba will be signed off tomorrow.

He's worth pick 23 sure. Probably more. I'd give up a top 15 pick for him up to about pick 10.

But he doesn't really contribute to evening the deal by adding him and pick 23 to 2 and 3.

Now if we were giving up 2 and 3 for Kennedy then sure throw in Mitchell and 23 as well. But that's even less likely than getting Kennedy.

The swans give up 1 of their best ball winners. It's unlikely but stranger things have happened. The swans give up another, can't see that.

I didn't say he was a hack. I implied he wasn't worth a top 3 pick on his own and that's what we'd essentially be giving. He's not an A grader, so you'd want a top 10 pick back at least. Sydney can't provide this. No deal, for mine. But each to their own.

Pick 2 and 3 for Kennedy and Frost (from GWS for pick 39) is an absolute win. One superstar and one long term known quantity who is known quality with lots of upside. 2 and 3 are UNKNOWN QUANTITIES!

Deadset, if we can't back ourselves to develop the 2nd and 3rd best talent in the country, we need to toss it in right now. Are we the new Melbourne or not?

Giving up both of those picks for one player who turns 27 next season is madness. Absolute madness.

Well, marketing and web content at Hawthorn knew about (and published an interview with) Frawley before that happened.

Everybody knew that had happened before it happened.

We need more than one middielder for pics 2&3.

It's a crap trade if it's only one player.

Steve use your common sense, we aint going to trade Pick 2 & 3 for Kennedy alone

Sydney are that close to a flag, really would you trade out your best midfielder, look at their midfield without Kennedy not really big enough to match it with Freo and Hawks

Balmey who would know has already kiboshed the story of Collingwood making the HL/MC/TV trade messy it's agreed to will be done

...and he was their only mid to put up any resistance in the GF.

Would I take Josh Kennedy over:

2013 - Josh Kelly/Jack Billings? Too early, but probably.

2012 - O'Rourke/Plowman? YES

2011 - Coniglio/Tyson? Probably not.

2010 - Bennell/Day? YES

2009 - Trengove/Martin? Marginal. Probably not. Martin is very good

2008 - Nic Nat/Stephen Hill? YES

2007 - Cotchin/Masten? Probably not, but JPK def has more impact than Cotchin

2006 - Gumbleton/Hansen - YES

2005 - Daisy/Ellis - YES

So, out of the last 9 drafts, 6 out of the 9 are a win, 1 is marginal and 2 are a probably not, but they're close.

I'm pretty comfortable with this trade.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
