You believe in Homeopathy dont you.

 

Sorry thread. I will give it a rest.

I want Kemp at 8. Long term i believe he is worth the risk.

brodie sounds such a collingwood name

Broderick. Broderegar. Brodiegenhaarn. Brodear. Brodocea.

I'm sure we'll find a solution for Mr Kempington's unfortunate condition.

Yep.

Ofc if you asked me when i was 17 and wet behind the ears the answer would probably be different. 

If anyone can show me some proof it assists in identifying a better footballer im all ears. Facts, not feelings. I reckon i will only hear crickets.

 

 

 

What an incredibly banal hill you’ve chosen to die on. 

Anyway, you’ve demonstrated that recruiters wouldn’t even need to ask you one of these questions to put a line through you. Irrespective of talent you’ve shown a tendency to throw the toys out the cot at the mere prospect a minor inconvenience. Bravo.

What are the odds he makes it to pick 8? He would be a steal there

He's a very good chance to still be there at our pick 8.

Going by most reports, he's close to a certainly to be there at 8.

He's ours to lose.

Is there anything wrong with a sociopath or psychopath on the playing list? If they play their role on & off.

You’d be trying to identify those who crumble or throw their toys out of the cot at the minutiae.

They would probably be pretty harmful off field.  Prone to playing idiotic power games and manipulating people for personal gain.

All of this nonsense for a fluffy ball?

Come on guys.........

 

The highlights vid of Kemp looks sensational. I'd be smiling if we got him at 8, although we all need to remember how Norf supporters carry on whenever draft time comes about. They "won the draft" year after year.

There are still as many misses as hits in the top 10.  Would be nice to finally get some stars on the list.

Yes - there’s a bit of a shock at No. 2 but not much of a shock for those who have been following this draft for longer than the last month. Tom Green is very, very, good.

But the real shock might come for those of you who are fixated on us picking Brodie Kemp at No. 8 - have a look at where he’s rated here.

Still rated at 21 after missing half a season.  Champion data rankings are stats based.  Kemp will be a gun and had he not done his knee he'd be in top 5 or 6 calculations.

If we bid on Henry wouldn't  we effectively be picking him at 7?

I spent some time this morning relaxing in front of the tapes.  Because what else do you do when you've got all the pastries already in front of you?

Even moer than both of these guys being decent marks, far from soft, long icks and having good vision and awareness - they both have initiative.  Neither of them need to stop and think or need to run backwards from the mark a bit to change their brain into gear before they look around.  I especially liked the times, for both of them, when a mark slipped or something else didn't quite connect and theere was not even time for an 'oh bugger' before they were back into it based on the new situation. Several times there was an instant recovery (i.e. dropped mark followed by getting the contested ball) or they influenced the play to limit the damage.

Give us 22 footballers with that mindset thanks, Mr Taylor.

Swooper got in before me. Champion data is based on... data.  It is kind of impressive that Kemp is anywhere on the data radar.

Surely it’s based on data averages, not aggregate.

Not sure why Kemp gets so much love. Good size, but I think a few too many have been sucked in by the Dangerfield comparisons. He’s not the first utility to come along at 192cm.

I don't think Dangerfield is a good comparison. He doesn't have the explosive movement that is Dangerfield's biggest weapon. He does have a lot of power though, and knows how to use his size and strength to break through tacklers. He is also a good mark and kick and executes under pressure. I see a lot of upside there.

Interesting that Cooper Stephens, who played 2 games before breaking his leg and missing the rest of the year, is ranked at 16.

It is indeed, but Cooper Stephens would never be in top 10 consideration. Be interested to see champion data rankings for Alex Rance at the moment.  They provoke discussion but I wonder as to how relevant they actually are. My view from watching games (not stats) hasn't changed.  Young and Kemp will both be very good to excellent AFL players.I hope we take them both.

I have no idea how they arrive at their rankings but i wonder if the data is a tad weighted towards factors that tend to result in inside mids accumulating somewhat more favourable outcomes vs someone who doesn't play alot of time at stoppages.

I can't speak for Stephens as i can't recall seeing much of him in the Nats (inj?) but Kemp spent minimal time as an on baller, mostly playing up forward.

    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

    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. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
