WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - KADE KOLODJASHNIJ

Recommended Posts

KK has the potential to be an elite player, reads the play well, can intercept and run the lines, Much prefer KK off halfback to Lewis  or on the wing instead of Jones or Tyson.

Concussion history a worry and should reduce Suns asking price. Reports are Docs identified his concussion susceptibilty as being neck related and that neck issue has been corrected . Still a risk for mine but high reward if he becomes a regular.

If he comes to Melbourne let's hope he's not just another high draft pick that doesn't quite make it despite changing clubs. Jono O'Rourke, Gysberts, Toumpas, etc

Watt?

2nd in a club b&f shows he can consistently perform at a high level.

Other failed players being mentioned on this thread were never able to do that.

B and F finishes in a low performing club need to be taken into account

kade is clearly flawed if he can't get a game at gc and they want to move him on

Battled multiple concussion issues which are now over.

Very good disposal and as much as I hate comparing players was similar to Grant Burchall.

Very good pick up

Speculation for players that have unrealised potential: Frost, Balic, McKenna, Kennedy, KK

I put KK in same category as Ports acquisition of Mr Watts last year... a bet against exposed form based on pedigree (draft pick, “talent”, etc)... and Jack was getting games in a middle of the road team, whereas Kk struggling in a cellar dweller...

I wouldn't put KK in either of these categories.

He's a much better player than all listed.

He has played quality footy but injury has been an issue, in the first list none of those had proven form apart from the odd game for a couple of them.

He's certainly nothing like Watts and that acquisition. Jack got nowhere near top 2 in our b&f good or bad years.

The bet with KK is nothing to do with form and more to do with getting him injury free and confident in his body.

Yep, I think we're on the same track. I just wouldn't put him with the others on the list.

I think he has some good exposed form, the others really didn't. They were more spec picks...

The spec here is whether he can get over the previous injuries.

I'm excited about him as a prospect, I was trying to think who we could bring in without going down the big fish path.

There had to be someone out there that would be a perfect fit for us and I think the FD uncovered him.

Sounds like GC will delist him if they can't get a deal done, so I imagine it'll be for a 3rd rounder at most, maybe a future 3rd/4th if he's not an add on to the May deal. I'm hoping he's done separately, right at the start of the week, as the Hogan/Freo/May circus could drag on a bit.

Sounds odd that you’d delist such a skilful and talented player. Especially when that’s exactly what your club is lacking in.

Underwhelmed by this guy given his track record.

Unrealized potential is an unconvincing reason to buy him. 

I think he has the upside of someone like Yeo...

A pretty convincing reason to buy.

Hope your right rjay so I will bow to your greater knowledge.

Apropos of another post of mine, I should heed my own words and have confidence in our selection and selectors.

It's amusing.  Most posters familiar with Kolodjashnij rate him and those who have to ask others or look up stats don't.

If you have no clue about a player why proffer an opinion ?

I don't know why it is amusing, unless you think your cleverer than the next person. 

Like looking at someone's CV, you can form an impression or an opinion based on a person's track record. 

In the KK case, his injury history, lack of games, and GC's willingness to trade provides an uninspiring track record.

The other reasoning relates to his untapped potential, which is always debatable.

In the past, we have had a litany of names with potential on our list. And we all have opinions on those names.

GCS departures:

Lynch, Hall, Kolodjashnij, Barlow, *May, Rischitelli (ret),  etc..

Who in their right mind would want to go to play for this club? Their supporters must be so disillusioned - although, I can empathise.

Off your high horse Pro, if his coaches want to trade him for a third round pick then they don’t rate him, despite your superior wisdom. 

If we pick him up our coaches are backing themselves to get value where Dees crew have failed or given up.

Dewy will probably go for the Roosy-Swans type players, contested contested contested. types.  Hard workers under heavy attention.

I don't know much about sPecial-K,  other than he was as a junior, Highly touted as a skilled ball user.

 

But I have no perception of his contact play?

I’ve got no idea about him but given you think he would be “one of the most talented on our list” and could be a “revelation” what do you think would be a fair 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

    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

    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

    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
