I find it frustrating that as a side we used to have so many exciting indigenous and irish players.

Farmer, Jurrah, Davey, Woenamirri, Stynes, Wight etc.

We don't seem to pick any players like that anymore.... our side lacks imagination and x factor.

Look at the Eagles yesterday! Riolo, Ryan, Cameron, Jetta....

Demonland: What kind of idiot does Taylor have to be to pick such a small player like Spargo in the second round

Also Demonland: Hey Taylor we should pick this player even smaller than Spargo in the second round

But in all seriousness, looks good, a punt on a kid with pure talent up forward is what we need

Taylor also drafted an inside contested mid (Sparrow) with our second rounder last year. The same year we traded away Tyson because we had too many inside contested mids...

Think Weightman is a better prospect if he’s available. 177cm, has pace, has good leap and mark for a small, can crumb well, kicked bags of 4 goals back to back matches in the championships too. He’s a specialist small forward. He’s projected to go around pick 20, so is the perfect target for our second round pick IMO.

We dont have a good record with midgets.

Think long and hard.

Did you know that he might be the only player that doesn't need to bend over and pick up the ball ?

Remember the name kysaiah Picket.

Sparrow isn't an "inside mid", and if you think he's similar to Tyson then you've either not seen Sparrow, Tyson or both.

“A medium forward/midfielder who is a super competitive with his ability to win the contested ball”

Sounds like an inside mid to me but we can agree to disagree.

Just as I thought, straight to google hey mate?

He's a bit like a Dangerfield type (not saying he'll be that good obviously) with a burst of speed from the pack, ability to chase down opponents and is a handy player around goals.

But sure, that's exactly the same as Tyson....

Yep, you never gone to google for evidence before?

Where has he been described as Patrick Dangerfield before? That said Patrick plays as an inside mid, a role that we just pushed another player out of the team for having too many of that type.

Not sure drafting a poor mans Patrick Dangerfield changes the role/position that Tyson got pushed out for.

Whether he plays it the same way or not, it doesn’t change how many players can go in for center bounces.

Ok, so now we're comparing Dangerfield and Tyson are we? I'm out. Have a good one.

Seems to complicated for you to get. Based on your logic we should just go recruit 10 players to play the same position/role, as long as they play it different to each other.

'Complicated' says the bloke that seemingly doesn't understand how list demographics and development work, or that all players who play some imaginary permanent role that defines their abilities aren't exactly the same. Come on mate, look deeper than the first page you find on google.

Nice evidence based argument as usual from you. Strong and supported justification right here. I now agree with you, let’s go get an inside mid who plays like a poor mans Fyfe, and a while we are at it let’s get a poor mans Cripps and a poor mans Mitchell. Let’s not worry about the gaping holes on the outside or find players who can kick.

Righto put your [censored] away fellas and get back to talking about the forwards we need to draft.

Sorry, back to Kysiahah Pickett. Get this kid on the list. In the second clip I posted you can see he can tackle to.

Exactly Oli.

He knows how to rove a pack and be at the fall of the ball. That automatically puts him ahead of Spargo playing as that crumbing forward.

Certainly looks to have that burst of speed that is essential for a midget

That comment was in reference to go home factor. His uncle left North Melbourne, to go home to the Dees!

He returned to Port Adelaide from North Melb, before we topped up his super for 29 games.

I can't weigh in too much given I have paid zero attention to potential draftees, but what I will say is we have some issues that need to be addressed at the draft table. One of those is speed and a goal sense.

If this kid is the best available to meet those needs then that's good enough for me. 

I will do some reading on prospects....seems I've been a tad lazy this season.

While there is very little information provided from a single game, from what he showed there I'd say no to this kid.  He positioned himself well and has good hands, but to me his pace looks average and his size is a huge disadvantage.  I'm a fan of drafting footballers before athletes, but there are limits.

Which part was made up? The part about him leaving north or the part about him going to the dees? Point was that he ended up in Melbourne which was in response to you saying let’s not pick Pickett because of go home factor. When his uncle left SA to come to Melbourne. The PA part is irrelevant here or if anything backs up my case further if you want to include it.

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.

    ESSENDONE & DUSTED by George on the Outer

    Essendon was the latest casualty as the Melbourne juggernaut rolled over the Bombers on its way to a 12th win for the 2021 Season.  It was a display of the difference in quality, coaching and system that defines those who will compete in finals and those that lie outside the top eight. Sadly, in these Covid times a mere 19,414 attended the game and the silence outside the ground before the match was eerie.  Normally, thronging crowds lining up at ticket gates and food carts were replaced by
