AFL National Draft 2014 Picks 2 & 3

Recommended Posts

"But in a late surprise, it is believed the Dees are considering overlooking Petracca in favour of 203cm forward Peter Wright.

Melbourne is expected to decide on Thursday morning on whether it needs another tall goalkicker to partner Jesse Hogan instead of Petracca’s X-factor."

Paul Roos has all but confirmed Melbourne will select Christian Petracca with one of its two top three picks in Thursday's national draft.

There was talk the tough Eastern Ranges midfielder could slip as low as pick 5 for Collingwood to swoop.

But Roos poured cold water on that theory.

While refusing to declare the Demons' hand, he barely hid it.

“I can tell you that Christian Petracca will not be playing for Collingwood,” he said on Sports Today.

As if we would leave a decision like that to the last minute.

Almost tempted to pay homage to Rangey and institute a poll but a simple question will probably suffice.

If hypothetically :rolleyes: we grabbed Brayshaw and Petracca, who would actually be upset ??

I wouldnt...seems a good get. Something to work with ^_^

I find that hilarious actually.

Too funny.

On the footage I've seen, Peter Wright is a gentle giant. Like others above, I can't believe that we would pass up on a quality mid for another "nice" young man.

If available it must be Brayshaw and Petracca.

Are you positing that his eyes close at the same time?

Or

To, Too, Two

Whats the difference between to, too, and two? Its not too difficult to use them, once you take the time to learn what they mean and do some practicing, too.

To

To has two functions. First, as a preposition, in which case it always precedes a noun.

Secondly, to indicates an infinitive when it precedes a verb.

Im going to the store

He went to Italy

This belongs to David

I need to study

We want to help

Hes going to eat

Too

Too also has two uses. First, as a synonym for "also":

Secondly, too means excessively when it precedes an adjective or adverb.

Can I go too?

He went to France too

I think thats Pauls book too

Im too tired

Hes walking too quickly

I ate too much

Two

Two is a number.

One, two, three

I have two cars

She ate two pieces of pie

Edit:- I had to fix the errors in the eLearn English paste !!!

Sorry Sir, it shan't happen again! Edited by Earl Hood

That could equally mean he thinks the saints are going to pick him.

Or that he wouldn't get past GWS at 4 and therefore not get to Pies pick at 5.

Roos has as good as confirmed on the radio this evening that we will be drafting Brayshaw and Petracca tomorrow. He made this claim on the basis that the interviewers were adamant that McCartin would be picked by St. Kilda. A decent midfield at last? Now all we need is to focus on another tall that might slip through to pick 40!

Petracca and Brayshaw is a HUGE win for the MFC!!!

Both capable of playing majority of games next year with impact.

Additions to team in 2015: Hogan, Lumumba, Gartlett, Petracca, Brayshaw, Frost.

Quality, X-factor, scoring capacity, run, skill, and aggression.

Emma Quayle has just released her first round predictions and has McCartin going to the Saints at number 1.

She has Dees picking Brayshaw at 2 and Petracca at 3.

She is usually spot on so close to the draft.

Most of the scribes are pretty spiot on close to draft time about what order they will be selected. None of the scribes are ever right when you compare the draft order they nominated as opposed to the output of the players.

I am assuming both Brayshaw and Petracca are nice upstanding Grammar School boys! Edited by Earl Hood

My erection is slowly rising.. For it to be accomplished I need to hear Brayshaw and Petracca read out by Jason Taylor.

I understand that Roos "says" that he only consults on drafting and let's the decisions be made by the recruiting staff however.....

Roos is on record as saying ( and I paraphrase) " draft for mids, trade for talls". It would therefore be hard to see us bypassing petracca and Bradshaw if McCartin goes number one.

I wonder how many Dlanders are prepared to wait for the benefit of say the possible pickups in Brayshaw and Petracca ?

I want to see us bring them up to speed before loosing them on the field. I want o more 'kids to the rescue" type team selections.

    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
