Plenty of duds in that draft.

I said at the time we should of taken Curnow & so far I have no reason to change my mind.

Sometimes I reckon the AFL listen and lean, on these things.

I'd expect they will pick him above Peds for the last 2 games and finals if we make it (ggaaahhh I hope we do). Get some more games into him, high stakes games. He has shown a little bit for mine, but he really needs to start coming on if given the chance now and coming into next season.

Peds has shown he just doesn't cut it at senior level, Weids its time to shine sailor.

I mentioned in another thread that my information is that, at this stage, he will be seeking a trade at end of year. He is not happy with the limited opportunities he has had, citing that he gets the chop very easily whilst others seem to get different treatment. I suppose 15 games in 3 years would tend to back that up. At this stage, I really do not know what to make of him as he has not had a decent stint in the ones to settle in to a role. But I would suggest that if he is not selected this week, he is gone.

I'm not really sure what he'd mean by different treatment. Pedo usually gets the bullet almost as soon as he comes in and Tim Smith has played the same amount of games as Weed.

Hmmm that’s interesting. His dad swims laps at the pool I coach at, so will ask him when I see him next.

Bit rich considering he has also spent a bit of time on the injury list, and was about 12kgs wet when he got to Melbourne.

Having said that, it is his time now to show us that he is worth the early pick we invested in him. Needs to stand up and deliver, and they should play him from now until the season ends, whenever that may be. Regardless of how he performs. Nothing to lose, as literally we are cooked.

IF that is the case, I doubt we’d let him go unless the trade offer was significant.  His stocks are as low now as they could ever be and he’s coming to an age and size that he can start to make an impact.  We’ve already invested a lot of time in him and out no 1 forward has just gone down with what is a potentially very serious injury.  Contracted to the end of 2019, so I’d hope we keep him.

That’s the gamble.

Id say he has very little value at the moment so would rather keep him and look to build upon his potential.  

It comes down to whether you think he has what it takes at senior level.  I think he has the makings of a decent player and could surprise a few in the next year or two.  With that said, I completely understand  people who aren’t convinced as he hasn’t had a great showing at senior level as yet.

I doubt anyone would offer better than a third round pick.

It's Weed time.

Form in the 2's.

Taylor made form to step in and grab his chance.

He has a strong tackle and is a good grab.

If he nails his set shots and does the defensive work he could be the tonic for a rejuvenated side coming into finals.

Sink or Swim.

You are correct. I just see nothing that suggests he is an AFL level talent.

I just think we are better playing him out this season at Casey then see what he can do senior level in 2019 after another pre season.

Interesting point and I probably agree. Out of interest what do you think Moore and McCartin would command on the trade market. Not much more than the Weid perhaps a second round.

The time is now.

After nearly three years on the list, it's time for Weed to show something. I don't expect 7 goals, 10 marks and 25 possessions. A couple of goals, the ability to bring the ball to the ground and some relief for Maxy in the ruck will be enough for mine. Basically what Pedo did last year before Father Time caught up with him.

I think this game will say a lot. Weed for mine has looked as though he feels he doesn't belong at the top level. His gait, facial expressions and when he goes to mark screams reticence. His tackling is the exception to this. He now needs to transfer that confidence to the rest of his game.

If Pedo can do a better job trying to get us into the finals than Weid then Pedo stays.

Can't afford to have someone on his L plates in MFC's two most important weeks in years.

Having said that Pedo has been atrocious this year in the seniors. A real step back from a good 2017.

I would have thought McCartin would be a round 2-3.  Talent probably places him in the 2nd, concussions and health/injury issues push him to third...

For the life of me I simply do not understand the hype around Darcy Moore and would be flabbergasted if a club surrendered a first round pick for him.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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

    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.

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
