The player I noticed in these highlights wasn't Serong it was the things Young did. How was that kick threading the needle to a leading forward inside 50. Just what we are crying out for. Just because he played half back as a junior doesn't mean that's where his AFL career will be. Hogan was the AA U 18 CHB. T Mac was a forward as a junior and recruited as a back.  J Howe was recruited by Pies as a forward and we know how that ended. 

I have no idea what kick you are talking about? When is this in the video?

I think with Serong, a lot of people are missing that one of his strengths is his decision-making and ability to stay involved.

I rate him higher than Young.

Do you call people at work trolls when you also have differing opinions? Lol, weak argument mate. We time and time again opt to draft inside mids over outside players but your heads stuck in the sand buddy. Yeah let’s draft more and give North pick 1 on a silver platter next year.

I agree Serong is a smart footballer with good intensity at the contest. Small forward in first 1-2 years then progress to midfield role.  Dependable Trent Cotchin style type.  
 

I’d take Young and Kemp first though as their upside is huge.

Said few weeks back that I don't think you can go wrong with either Serong and Young. Both are going to be jets. 

If you're picking someone based on needs then i think Young is the first priority. Where's Serong I see someone who can slot in straight away and make an instant impact across half forward.

At the moment I am still undecided on Young/Serong for pick 3.

There is a difference between having an opinion and just blatantly trolling which you are doing. You go on every single thread and crap on about how Goodwin is a [censored] coach because all he will do is pick inside mids in this draft. 

It's no wonder everyone takes the [censored] with now at every opportunity because you are well renown as a troll. I do hope mods pick up on this and send you away for good with @Matsuo Basho

Nat Fyfe had one of the worst under 18 highlights I have ever seen.

Judge him when he is around the 70 to 100 game mark.

I remember when a significant portion of draft watchers on here wanted us to take Jayden Laverde because of his electric highlights package. 

Similarly, most here thought Parish was a can't miss prospect and were upset when we drafted a fat ranga at pick 3 instead of him. 

I love the draft. I love picking my favourites. But let's not pretend we have a clue how any of these guys will go, especially if you're forming strong opinions off highlights packages.

Exactly right. Youngs highlights package look good, real good. But so did Jimmy Toumpas.

A lot can happen once they are in an AFL environment.

Well said DD, good to know there's a few options with the pick, I'm sure the FD are sorting through our needs  projecting forward with contracts list age profile on mind as consideration to weigh up on who to go with and making the call.

Lol yeah ok mate. Can you stop talking about me or trying to antoganise me? Let me share my opinions without accusing me of being a troll? Give it a break buddy.

Different opinion = Make false allegations, personal attacks and call for them to be banned

Truth is Goodwin continues to talk about contested ball and we continue to draft players like Sparrow and Spargo while playing inside mids like Jones and Brayshaw on the wing and flank positions.

Taking Serong would be a disaster.

We went from prelims to 17th. Let’s that soak in.

Just so we can judge your opinion accordingly, can you please let us know when you have seen Serong play. Which games? or highlights packages are you basing this opinion on?

Saw him play at the TAC cup. Also you missed the point of my post. Are we here to judge each other’s opinion now? What’s your opinion? When have you seen him play? What do you think? Do you love him?

 

Didnt know you had to see every game a player has played to share your thoughts now.

Oh yeah where exactly has he mentioned this leading up to the draft? You keep harping on and on about this and yet Goodwin already has shown that by recruiting outside players in Langdon and Tomlinson he is fixing a glaring need already.

Why do you keep bring up past draft selection when discussion has been clearly focused on this year's draft.

You're out of wack.

Which game?

If your opinion is based on one game, then I hardly think it's a valid one. If you have seen him player 5 times for instance, then fair enough.

I have only seen him play in the Vic Country vs WA game and then seen some highlights from the NAB League APP.

I certainly have not seen nearly enough of him to make an opinion that he would be a disaster. He didn't have a great game in the one I saw but definitely saw some things to work with there, would need to see a lot more to make a solid judgement regarding his pace and if his marking will stack up at AFL level.

So no one should share opinions unless they have watched more then 1 game of any player? Would be a very quiet forum if that rule applied

Problem is  that they don't all get to the 70 - 100 mark.

The skill and the luck is picking the right one.

On a phone or ipad, go to the 3 horizontal bars top right of screen, then go to account, then down bottom ignored users, then type on moonsha....... oops, I mean Olisik.

It gives you the option to ignore posts and messages, but not where his post is quoted, unfortunately

Dogs and Hawks both won flags then failed to make the 8 the next season.

Not really sure what you're point is here

    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

    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. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    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?

    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.

    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.
