I’ve heard he Tries hard but would need everything to go right and improve a lot to get drafted. Has a great attitude. 

Ive heard differently from both East Freo and Aquinas. Very hard working and driven young man with good skills and decion making. 

Will watch a bit of him this year in PSA first VIII, my boy is at another PSA school but a bit young for first VIII this season.

Woey Snr is one of the new coaches at my boys school so taking a keen interest for several reasons

Thanks for clarifying PSD.

Always good to hear it from someone who's actually closer to the inner sanctum with good sources.

Knightmare was asked on bigfooty about Taj’s prospects:-

“He'll need to keep developing. At this stage not sure he gets picked. But with improvement, he could move up draft boards. Have to see what he can do this year.

“A wait and see at this point.”

Thanks for that, and that's some respectable numbers too.

theres almost no chance he has seen him play and he's a historically putrid judge in any case.

Anyone know much about Taj? Is he a chance to be father-son?

love the total disposal numbers and then tackles column, i imagine he's playing a centre bounce/hf role? hopefully he gets a senior game or two as the year progresses to really push his case

He sounds like a very mature and driven young kid. Has Fantastic leadership qualities and obviously someone who's respected among his peers.

The type of player Simon Goodwin/Jason Taylor crave.

Indeed - captain of a very talented East Freo colts side expected to have multiple first rounders.

Developing nicely in a heavily covid impacted environment for the 17/18 year olds. 

Anyone know where Woey Snr's relationship with the club is at?

Since Woewodin left the club unfortunately he's never been invited back to a best and fairest function, or anything related to MFC.

I was listening to a podcast where Shane was interviewed. He has stated that at times he feels like he's more Collingwood then Melbourne. But did state that Taj is a very passionate Melbourne supporter and his favourite player is Jack Viney.

I have a vivid recollection of Shane being in a Melbourne corporate box area wearing a demons scarf with other past players a decade or more ago. Think it was during the Stynes administration. Shame if that was only a one off and the club didn't try to bring him back into the fold further. Perhaps it was a grand final reunion.

i'd be very surprised if the club hasn't been in close contact with the woey family in recent years, given the f/s opportunities

I would say the recruiters have been in close contact for sure.

Taj was down in Melbourne for a week and trained with the club.

Shane has also lived in Perth and Brisbane in recent years. One as an assistant coach for Brisbane, and also doing some Academy work in Perth. I would think his time has been consumed with this.

I'm also going off what Shane said in the podcast btw.

Compare the pear 

the pies on the fat end and the Dees up the top on the pointy bit. At least for now and some time to come I hope. 
as a young lad where would you prefer to go, we are a destination club or at least heading in that direction and with almost  50,000 members ( next week perhaps) 

send his dad some tickets to the long weekend match. Have him in our corner and do it before Collingwood do.

Woewodin didn't play 100 games for the Pies. 

The issue of father-son is in many ways separate from the issue of a past player's relationship with the club. Brad Green with Neitz and others seem to be lifting the game on past player relations, and like a lot of things winning helps.

Obviously there's a link but whether or not Shane has any great relationship isn't a huge factor on whether he thinks the club will be a good fit for his son. Especially if he's a marginal prospect and doesn't have a lot of interest from the WA clubs (that's not my opinion, just a hypothetical). I'd imagine as long as the relationship isn't actively bad Shane would want him to come to the club where he won a Brownlow and a club that seems to be doing well with development, especially with a couple of East Freo boys.

You would think he'll be at the Dees if drafted as it would be the best for Taj's Deevelopement.

I'm sure bygones will be bygones as past administrations are long gone.

With Taj being a Melbourne supporter he would have dreamt of playing in the Red and Blue. 

If he's good enough and warrants a gig then im sure the club would be all over it.

How does it work (not saying it's going to happen but more to understand the system) if Taj and our NGA prospect Mac Andrew are both rated in the 20s?  I.e. no one elects to take them or nominates them in the top 20.  Do we need to choose one or is it just a matter of having enough picks (points) to cover their position if another club nominates?

top 20 only applies to nga from this year

so, yes if andrew is > 20 and taj nominates as a f/s then we can take both if we have picks. note we can go into credit on picks if necessary

    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

    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.
