Update: he can fly.   

Told Kobe has been offered a list spot with announcement to follow 

Also note the hashtags that he used on the photo: #deesupayingattention #draftthiskidwhileyoustillcan...nothing about the Dockers.

Attached screenshot from my phone. Has the quote I copy pasted as well as stating Kobe is part of Freos next gen academy. Looks very unlikely he’ll go anywhere but Freo if he’s good enough to make an afl list.

Thanks mate, I think the article might have been updated since I read it, couple of different versions of it online now.

I'll call this thread the "Peter Pan" thread

Fanciful and delusional!

When is the last time we have had a father son pick that has been ANY GOOD!!

Come to our club???

Won't happen and time to think Logically

Remember 

This is MFC!

I'll call your post the "Negative Nancy" post.

What a pathetic, negative comment, Picket, regardless of Kobe's destination.

Bad news my friends (and I really hope my source is wrong)

Work with a bloke who is par of the Fremantle talent pathway and would be VERY surprised if Kobe Farmer doesn't elect to go as a father son for Freo 😥

It's only "his opinion" but after seeing him on the news in Freo colours the other week, I think our chances of getting him are slipping away.

We already basically know this, seeing as he is a part of their NGA. It's a feel good story, but he doesn't seem to be setting the world on fire either so no great loss.

This came to light over the past month. He's going to Freo if he’s good enough to make an AFL list.

Mods merge this with existing Kobe thread.

Where is Kobe Farmer? I reckon i was praying on Chris Johnson & Jack Viney for less time. Surely he is getting close to draft age?

I’d give up.

Cant recall if I’ve posted this on here before, but despite Jeff’s desire for Kobe to be a demon, Kobe’s mother is very unlikely to “allow” the kid to leave WA.

See above older posts. He’s part of Fremantle NGA, already trains with them, and Wiz now works for Freo as an ambassador. His family is settled in WA. His mum doesn’t want to move. If he’s good enough to make an AFL list, then he’s going to Freo as one of their elected NGA players. 

This thread should probably be closed now.

Sorry mate I don’t read every post on demonland. I missed your post on this.

With the Pickett thread it just reminded of a fellow indigenous player who made my 90’s.

Sad that if he is good enough he won’t be following in his dad’s original footsteps. No doubt the Wiz played his best footy here but I’m 99% sure he ended up playing more at Freo in the end. 

He’s a WA kid so it’s understandable that he’d have a strong desire to remain there. Sucks but there ya go, could be that Jeff is also trying to create an almost bidding war between the Dees and Freo for him to give him a greater opportunity at getting onto an AFL list.

Yes, but they still have to find the points for him.

Is his draft year 2020?

Highly unlikely, but with all the academy and f/s nominees next year, some clubs may have to prioritise what they can take and what they might leave behind. All it takes is for a outsider club with an early pick to bid and it could stuff up a raft of planned selections. Other may know how many potential academy/fs Freo have next year, I'm not sure.

We could do that this year with pick 3 and Tom Green. Makes GWS pay top price, or we get a bloody good player. Roosy did it by bidding for Mills when we got Clarry (thank christ)

If Fremantle are in the position where they have to prioritise whether they take him or not, then the reality is that if they decide not to take him, then he’s not much chop.

It’s not sounding as if he’s setting the world on fire anyway.

True, but we are in trouble if we use Freo's talent scouting as a guide.

They did well recruiting Sylvia, Bennell, McCarthy, etc

Does anyone know if Kobe made the WA U18 team as a bottom aged player this year? Or even if teams have been named yet?

I'm certainly eager to see how he goes and can't help but wonder if the club still has him on their radar to come in a scoop him from the Dockers.

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist
