WELCOME TO DEMONLAND - KYSAIAH KROPINYERI PICKETT

Recommended Posts

I want to select him now just to annoy those who don't want him, and then remind them of the fact until the season begins.

Get it done Jason Taylor.

Is Barry Prendergast posting here, maybe under several names.

There are some weird [censored] drafting theories getting bandied around.

It sounds like the bloke we took in the second round two years ago, and how's that working out? I know he's a much different player to Spargo, but the stats don't lie. If we are desperate for a small forward I'm sure we can find one at 28.

Maybe Spargo is your answer and u can't see it at 28 or 31 after bids 

not fast enough not physical enough  not enough goal sense No X factor 

We could recruit 3 Spargos and not hit the jackpot 

This  is the money shotat 10/11 or whatever snd I think our small man forward  barren results snd slow development ate worth the risk of a diamond.

Go Forth JT X factor Kozzie welcome  to the Dees!!

If nothing else Jackson Kozzie and Harley should now be the "Entertainers".

Long May they live (decade at least ) !!!

Having  said Charlie (Spargo) is not up to it yet I am bullish about 2020 for him.

put on poundage bulk and is stronger in the body and could have even gained pace!

Year of  surprises Weid Charlie Pruess Picks 3 and 11 plus Harley and Oscar Yes Oscar more bulk etc are all ready to blossom as are the 2017 draftees.

Depth is not a dirty word !!!

Pickett won't go at 10, if Geelong's player gets down to 10 we will swap picks and take Pickett and best available. If Geelong miss their guy we take best available.

 

End thread.

I do wonder if we can coax someone into a swap like that so we get two inside 10-20 as opposed to 10 and 28.

I've read somewhere that, if the Crows pass on McAsey, it might open up those opportunities more when the picks come around to us.

While I'm more than happy with Pickett, I still think there is plenty to play out before we draft him.

That's what I am reading as well. They won't commit incase their player is gone.

I can't recall Cyril's under 18s year all that well. I do remember I think in one of the under 18s championships games he kicked 7 goals playing as a midfielder/ half forward. I think that game really skyrocketed his credentials in a big way.

 

He was a freak. Tore it up for Scotch a few times.

I am more comfortable with Pickett being selected by as at pick 10 than I am with taking Luke Jackson at pick 3.

I look forward to seeing what this kid brings. I still think he went a bit early for what I’ve seen but I’m not unhappy to get him.

X-factor, goal sense, loves smashing blokes and can turn games in minutes.

Massive reach?  You need to reach for the tissues.

This bloke will win games off his own boot.

Agree it is quite a reach, a pity we weren't able to trade down for a couple of picks that probably would've got Pickett along with another kid.

Both picks are a bit of a reach, imo (Pickett in particular). Part of me is saying "JT better be right", another part of me is thinking that he has reached for them for a reason = must really like what he sees in them.

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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
