Welcome to the Dees Noah Anderson. 

Yeah umm, won't happen if GC get a PP before the first round. Until we're told it isn't so, i would be holding off popping the champagne just yet Dazz.

Don't worry I have already accepted that GC will get a PP. Just a pipe dream.

Bloke will be an absolute star.

Not under Goodwin he won't be. He'll drain all the natural talent out of him inside of 12 months. I just hope that come December, Anderson is at the MFC and Goodwin isn't.

Garbage, did we drain Petracca’s talent or is just not developed as we we had hoped?

Langdon for 2nd round 2019 (circa #21) and swap of 1st rounders in 2020 with Freo. Outside run on the wing  GET HIM IN  

Schoenmakers 25yo who can be picked up as a free agent - 3rd tall or backup for Weid  - Good Eye for the goals  (we need goal kickers)

#2-3 Ash -18yo  instantly walks into wing opposite Langdon  ; big call needed if Rowell was available 

#39 Bergman - 18yo classy youngster from the Dragons    Suits our need to get skilled footballers in  

# 57 - Brodie Newman 18yo  super talent  doesn’t get all the recognition  like an Easton Wood type   Competitive skilled wins the footy 192cm   Allows Salem into a roll in mid if needed

# 75-  will Fordham 23yo  (Frankston VFL) classy skilled midfielder who runs and accumulates OR Matthew Allen - eagles listed but  stars everyweek in wafl (wasted)

upgrade to the list. Dunkley. Lockhart.  CWagner

Gone. 9) Lewis Spargo Keilty T Smith Jkh Maynard Garlett Walker Jwags

Wouldn’t write our 2020 first rounder being off the table for 2 reasons

1. Clubs may value it highly due to our 2019 performance and not rate our chances to rise on the ladder hence giving us good value for it

2.Goodwin and co cannot risk another season like 2019 and would rather front load any talent income possible which our 2020 future rounder can provide.

I would look to trade it for a pick between 4-7 and see if any clubs bite.

if we can do that could look at both Anderson and Ash.

Out

Maynard 

Lewis

Garlett

Keilty

Tim Smith (May retire I heard)

J Wagner 

One of JKH and Stretch 

I’d hang on to T Smith if he isn’t retiring.

 I think we’ll land Langdon. And I’d be using our first hopefully on Anderson.

I would pick Anderson first. Big upside and his style and run makes him the AFL prototype  

But Rowell is ready to go in the midfield from round 1 2020. Suns may go for Rowell as a young leader. Great player. Selwood mould.

Bit of talk going around that it's been decided officially now GG will get pick 2 as a PP.

 

Have heard the same thing. clubs not happy but the AFL were never seriously considering alternatives. it was always going to happen.

i do wonder if we desperately want Noah Anderson would we entertain an upgrade. pick 3 and steak knives player to upgrade to pick 2

I just don't agree with compromising the top 10 of the draft for any reason at all. it flies right in the face of the equalisation policies. they should have been given pick 11 and pick 20. so they get 1, 11, 19,20 and then off field assistance and access to state league players without screwing over other clubs.

Jeez we're an arrogant lot aren't we. 

We've been around since the dawn of footballing time and it was only 10 years ago that we received a priority pick from the AFL. What's worse? As recently as 2014 we submitted another request for one with the AFL denying it. However, we did recieve pick 2 as compensation for Frawley leaving that year. For Frawley. Let's just take a minute to think about how other clubs felt about that if we're playing this game? 

The AFL bring in two more AFL clubs to expand the game and there are Melbourne supporters on here whining that the Suns might be taking precious pick two away from us. We've been around for how long and still need assistance in almost all facets. We make a prelim and are so arrogant to think it will just happen again the following year. 

We are a nothing club right now and supporters whining about the AFL giving the Gold Coast assistance are completely contradictory, pig-headed and are in total denial of the state of their own club. It beggars belief.

How about we look after our own backyard you peanuts.

The silver lining is we may now have to really think about our pick without the noise that 1 and 2 are set in stone. That approach has not worked for us in the past.

I’m not a fan of them getting a PP after their first. Should be end of first. They have enough young talent. Gil and co need to put work into player retention.

Bit of talk around that we will try and downgrade our first rounder if it's pick 3 to two later first round picks. and potentially even move on the 2020 first rounder to try and get something else back in the first round. 

i quite like this because i don't think the club is really 100% sure themselves what's gone on this year and needs to plan a little each way, we might rise back up the ladder, but we also might not, so if we can get 3-4 first round draft picks and really boost that young core and keep building for the future as well as add say Ed Langdon i think we are in a good spot. 

I believe Jeremy Cameron is a free agent next year? and lots of talk of him coming back to Vic so may be worth popping pick 3 under the Giants nose and seeing if they're tempted to maximise their value.

Sounds like Tyson Kelly trade. Can bet your money Anderson and Ash go on to become super stars while we are left with players who don’t defend or can’t hit targets

    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

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    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
