GWS 1st rounder next year may well be in the late 20s after all the bidding is matched. We should think of the pick number rather than 1st or 2nd round I'd rather 3 for 6 + Caldwell or O'Halloran

If we can leave Bonar out of this and get someone of the type we need instead (or a suitable pick) it would be so much better.

Surely we have some sort of deal already worked out with GWS, otherwise what was the point of them moving down to pick 6.

Not a shock really, I wonder if we'd look at getting 2 first round picks - say trade with GWS who have picks 11 & 13 at the moment. Or will we try and use it to get a player plus a later first round pick?

For example:

- Ben King plus pick 17 back from GC

- Langdon plus pick 6 from Freo, we might need to give a 4th rounder as well

Would only do this if GC get the priority pick - otherwise we should just take Rowell or Anderson (too good not to take).  We need to get some top end kids onto this list.  We have not had ONE rising star nomination in the last three seasons, which says it all really.

Fishing trip.  Throw out the bait and see what bites.  We can assess the offers and go from there- see how badly others want to move up.

we have no fs or academy players we want to split a high draft pick for, so we could look for player plus pick, or picks.  Going on points system, we could get Langdon plus Freo first rounder and change.  We have quite well with these approaches before - moving up or down to get what we want - so hopefully we can make the most of it again

Here is my scenario...

3+21 to Sydney for 5 + Papley (values Papley approx pick 12) 

5 + 57 (1927 points) to WCE for 15 & 23 (2060 points) (WCE will want a higher pick to pip Freo in the Kelly deal) 

23 to Freo for Langdon 

Take 15 to the draft 

Overall:

In: Papley, Langdon, P 15

Out: 3, 21 & 57

I'm all for swapping back but I'm not sure on the options. I suspect they'll at least want to remain in the top 10 

7 & Langdon for 3? Might be the most likely

5 & Papley for 3 and a 3rd round pick. I'd like this but I don't think he wants to come to us

I just don't see what clubs can offer us on the top 10 that makes it worth it. 

1. Gold Coast

2. Gold Coast

3. Melbourne

4. Adelaide

5. Sydney

6. St Kilda

7. Fremantle

8. North Melbourne

9. Carlton

10. Port Adelaide

11. Hawthorn

------------------------------------------------------------

12. Greater Western Sydney (tied to Essendon)

13. Western Bulldogs

14. Greater Western Sydney

15. West Coast

16. Brisbane (tied to Collingwood)

17. Richmond

18. Gold Coast (tied to Brisbane)

19. Geelong

didn't work too well with Tyson and Salem v Josh Kelly.

It's the conservative approach for a desperate team which as usual we are.

Frankly we have known for a long time that we will be picking in the top ten so there is no excuse for not having a very detailed plan going forward. The fact that we have pick 2 or 3 should make it easier

Strange view. I feel like the conservative approach is taking what you have and picking the top rated player available. This is taking a risk, taking what you have and gambling that you can turn it into more

Might have been the plan all along, and from everything I've read the top 2 picks are set then it's a bit of a blanket over the next 10 or so guys. While there are some that have been talked about heavily on here, Ash and Young, there are others such as Kemp, Serong, Robertson, Stephens etc, who could be just as good. So a drop down the order might suit if we can get other assets in.

I'd hazard a guess that it indicates a few different things:

- we're not that fussed about the quality of the draft as it progresses (you could throw a blanket over the top 10-20 after the first couple)
- we'll have plenty of list spots to fill, as opposed to just taking the minimum 3 picks
- we're targetting GWS' picks in the teens, and are aware of the value of an early selection to them with Tom Green as a likely top 5-10 academy selection
- I'd still be gunning for them to throw in a Xavier O'Halloran along with 11 & 13
- We need picks/assets to facilitate the planned moves we have in store

You'd reckon GWS would love to get a pick ahead of anyone bidding for Green, and just as happy to dispose of those first rounds picks for a collection of 'points picks' later in the draft.

Yikes, GWS could realistically have three picks in the early teens range, with their existing two, plus Coniglio compensation.

I wonder, in fantasy worlds, could we get all three?

Pick 2(3) out, pick 20(21) out, and some later points-picks thrown in. GWS Gets a top draftee and then can safely use their academy points to get Green, effectively finishing with two top-6 picks.

Meanwhile, we go from pick 2(3) and 20 to picks 11,12,15.

Obviously, since (with no real insight excpet the chatter) I'm reckoning this draft seems pretty even for the first round with lots of suitable options for us, I think this would be a spectacular move.

Also puts us in a great place for live pick trading on the night if we want a little boost by throwing in next years third rounder etc.

I should probabyl mention I'm not sold on Melbourne attending the Hill, Langdon etc auction.

Agree with both of these, as it is now the Giants would have picks 13, 15 & 16 (assuming GC get the PP and Cogs goes). They might hang onto one purely for points reasons, with Green expecting a bid in the first 6 or so picks, although if Tomlinson goes as well you'd assume it might be for a second, so roughly pick 35 or so.

Our pick 3 & 22 is overs in the draft pick point index, so then they should include a Bonar/O'Halloran/ZLangdon as well. 

We could then look at sending pick 15 plus 41 (our 3rd) to Freo for Langdon and pick 24, which still values him as a 2nd rounder, but would then give them access to early picks and points for matching their academy kid as well. 

So we'd end up with picks 13, 16 & 28 and Landgon plus Bonar/O'Halloran for picks 3, 22 & 41.

I might be in the minority here, but unless we are able to trade in a quality player, i'd rather we held onto pick 3 as opposed to 'splitting' it.

I know the draft is said to be top 2 then a bit of daylight to which you could throw a blanket over a number of kids, but having seen Hayden Young's kicking ability, i'd much rather bring him to the club than having to compromise and pick up any leftovers.

Like it GCDee. 

Addresses 2 major problems and still leaves us with  a pick in the first round. 

Plus Langdon and Papley are still under 25 (pretty sure)

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date.
