Brodie Newman from Calder.  Again showed his best. I only saw him play once this year against my local team (Chargers).  He was like Easton Wood and Brendon Goddard type.  Controlled the backline.  Mature and composed and kicked with real purpose.  Not a lot of hype but I reckon he is the AFL type.  I will keep on seeing him as a pick 50-60 type. Think how the Hawks, Swans, Pies keep getting these types as 50+ bargains.

MORRISH MEDAL 

Western Jets co-captain and rebounding defender Lucas Rocci has claimed his club’s first-ever Morrish Medal for the NAB League Boys competition’s best and fairest player.

The 175cm top-ager averaged 17 disposals, four marks and five rebound-50s per game across 13 home-and-away matches. He polled 17 votes to finish clear of Sandringham Dragons skipper Ryan Byrnes on 14 votes, with fellow top-agers Ned Gentile (Calder Cannons), Mitch Mellis (Eastern Ranges) and Jay Rantall (GWV Rebels) rounding out the top five on the leaderboard on 13 votes apiece.

It’s closing in on three quarter time at Ikon Park and the Chargers lead the Dragons by 39 points. While they are not dominating, the 1/2 draft duo of Rowell/Anderson are showing their class and why they’re so highly thought of among recruiters. If the AFL gives the Suns a priority pick at the start of Round 1, it will truly be an absolute gift and probably far better than it would be in most years. The two are going to be great players at AFL level in a very short space of time.

interesting that all the best nab league players this year were top-agers; usually there's a couple of bottom-agers in the team of the year?

how's the next draft class looking, i wonder?

Oakleigh Chargers thrashed Sandringham Dragons by 75 points

I’m going early with next year’s NAB Rising Star - Matt Rowell. 

The two wingers in that NAB League Boys Team of the Year, Noah Anderson and Trent Bianco would be handy at Melbourne where we need some classy runners.

Not overly strong, going on the u16's report from last year. That and the fact that so many of the 'top' talents are already aligned to clubs via NGA, F/S etc.

The amount of quality left for 'open' picks will be slim pickings next year.

Correct. Next years draft will be the most compromised ever by a fair margin. To clubs without academy options, it’s shaping as one of the worst drafts yet. Need to hit the draft high this year while we have the chance.

The gift to GC will also be in how much of a penalty is being applied to other clubs, given the drop from the calibre from those two to the next group. They'd be getting a fair leg up in this draft pool if they get pick 1 and 2 as many suspect they will.

One of the standouts in next years crop was on on show today. Key forward Jamarra Ugle-Hagan has been very good this year and kicked 4 today. He has been called the next Buddy by some, but is already tied to the Bulldogs NGA. Next years draft looks like another highly compromised edition.

be interesting to see what we do in terms of trading a future first then...

if we split pick 3 into 12 and (let's say) 15, plus a gw$ player, then we'll have the ability to trade our first rounders in 2020-2022 each year

Chargers will be hard to beat. Two absolute guns and Bianco is a top 25 chance. Also Macrae and Ugle-Hagen as youngsters that are highly rated in 2020 draft class.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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

    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.

    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.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
