Return to Glory

Brodie Kemp (drafted by Carlton)

Recommended Posts

Data data data. Ridiculous. Kemp missed last half of 2019.  Pick 21. Kyle Langford comparison is a joke. 
 

I don’t think this article is based on watching games. 
 

Kemp is top 5.  He slides due the ACL injury which rules him out for 2020. But his physical size and pace alongside versatility and kicking make him very very likely to go top 10. He looked “Dangerfield like” in some stoppages with a burst of pace. 
 

Dees would be mad to miss him at 8 or 10 (if we trade 8 for 10 &22 from Freo)

Worrying about an 18 year old kid not playing in his first season is pointless. He shouldn't be playing seniors in his first season anyway. A year of rehab means he will be better prepared physically when he does debut.

But....but...how can he possibly be the club saviour if he does not play for 12 months...??😂

Another saviour hasn't shown his face now for over 2000 years, 12 months is nothing SL 😁

On a serious note, his highlights are pretty bloomin good!

 

I saw him live. I saw his highlights. Forget the ACL. 

This kid has the ability for a future superstar. Dees might not punt in him at 3 but would definitely HAVE TO GRAB KEMP AT PICK 8 IF AVAILABLE!! Speed. Strength. Goal kicking. Dangerfield like at times.

Exactly. That is why gave away so much including our First pick in 2020 to get Brodie Kemp. I'm more confident now we will not split number 8 pick. Brodie Kemp potentially could've been a top 5 pick if he didn't get injured. His highlights package was awesome to watch.

I don't think we split just to potentially target Kemp. We have a range of players that we are looking at pick 8, which Kemp is part of that list.

As Jason Taylor said, you can't trade into a first a first round just to focus on that one particular player because at the end of the day they might not even be there at that pick.

Swans are really looking hard at Kemp with pick 5 potentially if they bid on Green and GWS match the bid.

The short-term pessimist long-term optimist part of me that thinks taking Kemp and accepting his year out actually kind of works out in a twisted way.

We've got quite a list management puzzle at the moment particularly dealing with a LOT of players who are hovering on the fringe or who need to find a way back from injury.  And there's a serious concentration of that status at similar height and potential roles to Kemp; Hannan, Hunt, Vandenberg, J Wagner, Kolodjasnij, Hibberd and Smith.

That's seven names Kemp could replace their role and would anticipate surpassing pretty quickly. And any (Maybe even most. Maybe even all!) of them might be gone at end of 2020.  But for now, we've got them all to sort through and see what we can make of them. To unclog a list you actually need to get the lumps flowing.

We've traded out of the pointy end of the 2020 draft but it is likely we will have major list turnover then as well. Is it conceivable that Kemp is basically our '2020 No.1' selection?

I like this idea, mate. Mostly because I think Kemp could be a star and if he's the second player we pick, the risk is lessened.

What are you basing this on? You have knowledge from someone or just from reading one of the draft writers pieces?

Every chance the blues grab him at 9 you'd think

Agree. He’s got real talent. Some of Kemp’s burst of pace out of packs at the championship was very “Dangerfield like”. If we still have pick 10, he would be the definite choice.

Where do you play him NS?  Forward?  Played quite well when forward in some of the latter Nat matches.  Proved to be a solid to impressive competitor in the air.  A very decent set shot action which should hold him in good stead as a medium mobile tall prospect.

Good by hand in the middle, at times, but not necessarily elite here.  Does show elite glimpses (by hand) though.  By foot and movement away from stoppages?  Lots of work ahead imo and a WIP if he is to become a decent to top liner in the mid.  Might take a bit longer than some to find his feet in this sort of role given his height and possibly a poor tank at this point vs others he was competing against.  Ability to win the ground ball at a very good to elite level as a mid?  Again a WIP imv vs some of the better mids in the Nats.  Good to vg work at times when receiving from others around stoppages on the exits but again, disposal by foot (on the run) needs a fair amount of work.

Kemp has 12 months recovery through to June 2020 from ACL.  He will do a lot of gym work and build up his upper body.
 

Where does he play?   At the start,  probably half back.  Within 2 years he can play ruck rover and be very damaging alongside Viney and Oliver and Petracca. He may also play as an attacking CHB/half back like Brendon Goddard.

Kemp can move. He has real pace and strength. If we hold 10, I hope he’s available. I think Blues will grab him unfortunately. 

 

Pumping up his tyres a lot you are. Are you his favourite uncle @spirit of norm smith?

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    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.

    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
