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.

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues.

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot
