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.

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?

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.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
