Jason Taylor Resume

I still think of JT as a Collingwood product, but he's now spent at least twice as long with us than he did with them. But I recall him coming to MFC as highly-credentialed. What was it he did before us to earn that reputation? Or do I have my facts wrong? 

Dwayne Beams and Sidebottom were amongst some of his selections in the 2010 premiership side.

Listening to a The Outback mind podcast of Jason Taylor that gives a lot of MFC stores, his philosophies, and his story about recruiting at MFC.

Thank you for the link to the podcast. It was most enlightening.

Jason Taylor also mentioned he is contracted to the Demons for at least another 4 years. So that's a positive! 🙂

I get the impression from Jason Taylor that he wants to stay at the Club for the long haul and build a Demons Dynasty. He is certainly not satisfied with just one Premiership for the Melbourne Football Club.

Thanks Superdemon and Redsoxman,

 I really enjoyed it. Our recruiting with JT is in great hands.

I love that JT states his emphasis is on Character/competiveness/resilience. He takes into account positional needs (say coaching staff) but Best available overrides. 

He comments on choosing the wrong people against a good character. He quotes Chris Judd (I think) "less impressed with talent"

I would love to take a chance on Syd Stack but I suspect it won't happen.

Our List management committee is in good hands

Jason Taylor will be on afl.com tomorrow at 12:30. I won’t be able to listen, but I’m sure someone here will catch it and share what they hear :)

Anyone catch JT on afl.com interview today and able to share what he said?

All I can see if a small clip talking about key position needs could be targeted at either pick.

Didn't miss much to he honest. Only other thing of note was he pretty much said we won't be able to trade into the top 5-6.

Jason and the team are sensational. More credit needs to applied to Tim Lamb- what a stright shooter- never waivers from getting the job done.

I've never fully understood who actually does the player and pick trading. I think most of us gave Mahoney the credit for it in his time at MFC but is that right was it Tim Lamb doing the negotiating even then. In fact is it Tim Lamb doing it now. I assume JT and team go out and find the talent and then it's over to TL and team to negotiate. Anyone know how it works.

Your idea actually has merit when considering all the data available.

We could have done a lor better during that horror draft period by simply drawing names out of a hat.  Such are the vagaries of drafting

You should read up on the history of drafting in baseball ... a complete [censored]-shoot although Houston lucked out by drafting 3 guns in 3 consecutive years after tanking 3 years in a row.

The luck factor in drafting cannot be overplayed enough.  It is an inexact science and most probably always will be.

But belief systems are belief systems so my words are only directed at 15% of the draft believers.  Most others have bought in and are therefore all-in

Just like your good self RR. 

Good to have you back but on this occasion we'll have to agree at disagree.

fair points but Taylor only had a few chances at the really high picks early on and nailed Petracca, Brayshaw, Oliver and missed with the Weid. Then nailed Jackson with a pick 3 and pickett pick 12. if he misses a couple maybe even 1 of those we dont have a premiership.

Lamb was a talent spotter under JT, I’m sure it’s a collaborative effort to value future picks and trade players, but then JT is ultimately in charge of the draft board. I hope they’re collaborating with analytics, coaches, factoring in the salary cap and so on.

From what I’ve seen of nfl draft rooms (which is where the afl usually borrows from) teams usually have multiple people set up with phones allocated to various teams. And they’ll try to use previous relationships if possible. But it highlights why teams often have to have deals lined up before the draft, there’s a lot of chaos on the night.

You can catch it all on the afl exchange podcast feed.

Talked about needs v best available. Seemed to be weighing needs quite a bit, but more so at later picks.

Confident they’ll be a good player at 37.

Has a possible great result at pick 13 and another good result based on their scenarios. Seemed to be that was if using the pick rather than trading.

Didn’t deny key forward was a need. But I get the feeling tall back, ruck and possibly inside 50 kicker might be seen as needs just as much.

The JT second drafts like Riv JJ Tommy Sparrow Plus Bowey as a late 1st rounder and JVR are all good as well

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
