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.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z
