Weightman is a Spargo like player.  Not the 200+ gamer that is the top 10 aim. 

I would rate 20 youngsters well before Weightman.

JT would be a lunatic to pick him at 3. 

 

Well take it to the bank spirit we will take him at pic 3. 

Its the melb way!

Well he's not even in the top 20 in most phantom drafts so unless he's seriously bolted. Saints will give pick 6 to Freo so they aint gonna use it on him. There's also 2-3 other good forwards in the top 20 like Caleb Serong & Taheny.

I like the look of Flandersisis at number 10

not just for the simpsons joke opportunities.  big body, mid and fwd.  if we split pick 3 he's the type we might get

I have no issue with us getting 2 or even 3 forwards with the picks we have in the draft. Its our biggest glaring list hole and the only way to convert some of that inside 50 dominance.

This comment just proved that you have not watched Weightman in the flesh live and only going off what you read on Bigfooty draft boards.

I shall and won't explain any further only to say that Weightman is a completely different player to Spargo. And this coming from someone who had a lot to do with Charlie when he was coming through our development squad in the Murray Bushrangers program.

 

Watched at Shepley oval and wasn’t that impressed. Say hi next time hey. Ash and Young were the standouts and I’d be happy with either for pace (Ash) and class (Young).  Kobi George is one to watch.  He could be an NGA special for Dees

No.

But it shows the type of payers we will be looking at. Small forwards and outside runners. Weightman obviously fits that bill.

Agree need smalls.

I haven’t seen anyone yet n watching a dozen nab games this year.  Reckon we either trade in or put another year into Chandler and Bedford.

Id assume Browne hasn’t put 2 and 2 together. I’m sure both us and stkilda are keen - like we are both keen to ‘split our picks’ to have 2 mid-first round picks. A pick 15 wouldn’t be too high for Weightman if he tests well at the combine.

Fantasy Post (if split picks)

  • 1st round picks from GWS; draft Weightman, trade for Laird.
  • 2nd round pick; Langdon.
  • FA; Elliot and Tomlinson

 

That would be an insanely good trade period for us if we can pull that off. I think that will block every deficiency we have and push us right back up there assuming the boys work hard over summer and we remain healthy. 

We would still have to use our 3rd and fourth round picks in the draft in that scenario however, so we would need to clear a total of 7 list spots...

Jeffy, Keilty, Lewis, Maynard (confirmed) ... JKH, ANB & J Wags?

They talk about him on the latest Road To The Draft Podcast, on the AFL website. I tweeted a question to them about how high he could go, and they answered it. Even made fun of my Twitter name 😂

Can he slide to pick 38 that's when I'd like to pick him up. If we split our picks that will have me peeved. It didn't work the first time pretty stupid to do it twice. Kelly and Billings are a lot better than Salem and Tyson can't get a game.

Anyone got a highlight video of this kid?  Good chance we swoop on him a pick 8 if you believe the rumours.  He would fill a huge need for us (if hes good enough)

Would be nice to have a star small forward at the club.  We haven't had one since Jeff Farmer and he only had one great season anyway.

Jeff Farmer had two excellent seasons, 1998 when he took us to a prelim off his own boot and 2000 when he took us to the GF off his own boot.

I've changed my mind on Weightman.

Rather take a chance on this bloke tbh...

Super green and possibly a year or so off it but....Genuine X factor, cat like around goals and can take a nice speckie.  Came 10th in the National Combine in the running leap test as well.

A small that has the tall traits a la Cyril (speckie at the 1 minute mark)...

Bit of mongrel never hurt either....

Sixth sense around goal...

If we draft another Spargo at pick 3 then that’s it for me.

We've had a good go at moderately paced midgets without tricks over the years.

Also reminds me of Parish hype a few years back.

Little blokes need to have Rioli type skills for top 10  IMO.

So looks like you're basing your entire opinion on Weightman on having no vision of him. Right. Name one decent source that has Pickett above Weightman..

Saying he is like Spargo or Parish is pretty funny. For starters he is a small forward, not a small mid. Maybe watch a video or two of his games, you would never make those comparisons.

Not at all 247.  Watched all highlight vids (about 5) via the league App and he looks very solid.  I've been keen on him for a few weeks but that was prior to seeing Pickett.  Taylor might be a step up on both but haven't seen any videos.

I'm not worried about sources or draft positions.  I trust what i see albeit i realise it's limited vision vs Weightman but the eyes don't lie.  This bloke is a cat with the X factor we need imv.

Having said that i doubt anyone would pick him up in the top 20 or so as they'll be too scared of getting the pick wrong i reckon.   Necks on the line.

Don’t get me wrong, I would like us to pick him up. Unfortunately we don’t have an appropriate pick atm

Yes i agree.  He'll be gone by 97 or whatever it is.  Unless we can somehow split the pick and still be g'teed of landing Young with the first.  That might give us 6, 8 and something in the 20s/30s that's more appropriate.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    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

    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
