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.

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

Being sub-175 cm tall doesn't automatically preclude you from being an AFL player, but it does put you at a serious disadvantage.

Recent history shows that if you are sub-175 cm, slow and don't kick goals, your chances of being a long term AFL player are very slim indeed.

Those that make it are generally elite at something else (eg Caleb Daniel's disposal and decision making), which is why I don't think any of Spargo, Bedford or Chandler will make it and why Kennedy-Harris has possibly played his last game.

poita - haven't had an opportunity to see Bedford and Chandler.   Is it too early to tell if they have the skills or the pace?

Having been a bit of a fan of Spargo last year, he either has a bad case of second year blues, or sadly, I tend to agree with you.

Also have been a fan of JKH but his papers look to have been stamped if he can't squeeze into this line up despite good reports from Casey

makes you wonder why we have 4 of them on the list.. which is what I was saying about having a lot of smalls at Casey.

So on that basis it's a pass.

IIRC JKH was originally touted as a small forward and that went nowhere after his early injury.

We really missed the boat with the smaller type player when we (along with most others) elected to play it safe and ignore Sydney Stack when he was available because of our “no d***heads” rule. 

We now have a number of midgets on our list who are a long way off getting a game while Garlett’s injured and probably need to trade/delist a couple of them before considering bringing in more of the same.

Definitely on board with this! We desperately need a small forward with x-factor and he seems to have that in spades. 

Go for him Dees!!!

He can come and board with me and be seated on the RIGHT side of the Fence, get marvelous home cooked meals, be entertained with riveting stories of my great Footy and Cricket Career, and as an occasional treat visit Uncle Bitter at the Manor for even more entertainment!!!?

It's a win, win?

Absolutely. May be available at 50.  

I like Elijah Taylor at pick 26 though 

I’ve got no idea who he is, I’ll look him up. I just keep reading how the talent will drop off, that and I miss the days of Flash. Thought he’d be worth a look.

Gawwd from what I"ve seen in highlights reel a real chance Dazzle????? Your appraisal??

Exciting and fits exactly what we have been missing since early Aaron Davey days.

I wouldn't be against using pick 26 on him though.

Exactly what we are lacking

this is sanfl seconds you do realise? and only 1 game

in 12 games (sanfl 2nds, u18 and 2 games sanfl) he kicked 17 goals. take away the 6 in 1 game and you have 11 goals in 11 games

hardly a prolific goal sneak.

yes, he is a natural footballer type with x-factor but at 170cm i'd like to see a lot lot more of his capabilities and record to date

far too easy to be seduced by a highlights video of one game.

I’m guilty of being seduced....

I was waiting for a full phantom draft to see what other small forwards were available if any this year.

Yeah I agree with you completely. Looked like a lower grade he was playing but I like his positioning. He knows where to be. Having said that a larger sample size is necessary.

He might still be there at 26, whereas I think Weightman will be gone.

We really need a small forward who can impact games similar to a Gryan Miers did at the Cats.

If we select someone like Hayden Young at 3 and Pickett at 26 we fill two important needs. Outside skillful left footer and someone to win the ground ball inside 50

I don’t follow the under 18s closely, but you have my vote.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
