WELCOME TO THE MELBOURNE FOOTBALL CLUB - KYSAIAH KROPINYERI PICKETT

Recommended Posts

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.

Just like his uncle Byron? Oh wait...

In fairness there is quite a lot of difference in their build!

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. 

You are making [censored] up to suit your dominating narrative. Give it a rest and let others have a say

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.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
