Having said that, I would take him at pick 3.  He has star power unlike Young, Ash, Serong, etc etc.   Im just saying that I doubt we will take him as Mahoney and Goodwins (and others) jobs are on the line in 2020

I would imagine/hope the club would have a longer term view than the next 12 Months, if they are that unsure of their jobs they shouldn't be there.

Yes we will

My initial reaction was Flanders and Young but I'm more than happy to substitute Kemp for one of those two, preferably Young.

I'd love to have a quick 192cm, 82kg player who can play in a number of positions.

This reminds me of the 2009 draft where there were two standouts, Scully and Trengove (?), with a host of others that looked pretty good too. Third was Martin and he turned out ok, we also took a player with wonky knees who just won our B&F. Think Kemp.

There were a couple of busts, but it was a pretty good draft, Fyfe taken at 20 and another couple taken at later stages of the draft who have been pretty good. This could be another draft like that. If we play our cards correctly we could walk away with a couple of really good players.

Amazing looking at that list that someone like Butcher who pardon the punt butchered the ball so badly was a top 10 pick!

Iirc, there were plenty on here keen on Butcher.

Never a more appropriate player name...

Mahoney traded away our 2020 1st round pick to North , banking on us rising up the ladder next season. 

We need to take ready made kids at 3 and 8 who can impact immediately. 

Kemp will miss all of 2020.  We will not be drafting Kemp.

Or possibly he feels that the player we're eyeing off at 8 this year is better than anyone we'll get in the next draft?  Given that Kemp won't play next year you could regard him as next year's draftee.  His quality would put him well in the upper ranks of next year's group. 

I look at that footage of Kemp and I see good burst pace and plenty of power.  His attack on the ball reminds me a little of some plays David Schwarz made in his day where he burst through tackles.  Obviously this kid isn't another Schwarz (wouldn't it be awesome if he were?), but he has power and explosiveness and he can kick.  We keep talking about how the club plays it safe with their picks.  This is another kind of risk, and we should back ourselves in to manage him properly and get a star out of it.

My first two were Flnders and Kemp, but starting to change over to Young as well.

I'm hopping this draft is going to be the one, we look back on and smile, fingers crossed.

To have both Martin and Fyfe playing on our team, how good would that have been?

Also i didn't know our own Jakey Melksham was a first round pick? Even though esscum chose him.

Gawny at 34 was a steal🎯

Gawny at 34 was the only thing that made up for picks 1,2&11 being ordinary.

I could understand  passing him up at 3 (although I'd be happy to get him there) but if he is still there at 8 and we don't take him I believe we'll regret it.

Exactly. Ditto. Agree. 
I think Kemp is a Dangerfield type who don’t come up too often. I’m all for the risk of taking Kemp at 3. If he was injured he would have pushing up to Rowell/Anderson as likely no.1 pick. 

I can understand choosing Hayden Young at pick 3 (4- depending on pick swaps or nominating Tom Green) as he is the type of ball user we desperately need  

But if Kemp was available at 8, you CANNOT pass him up. Simply too good.  Tall. Fast. Great kick. Midfield. Goalkicker.  Sure you have the wait out 2020 while he recovers but huge huge upside for start of 2021.  He would be (on form at national championships) into our best 22.

I reckon there's a strong chance the thinking when we went after a second first rounder was, package two top 10 picks for an A grader at GWS or get two bites of the cherry in the top 10. This way, we'd get one kid who might be able to make a difference in 2020 and the second kid is so good that him sitting out in 2020 due to injury is worth it because of his talent, and in this situation, we'd still have the ability to service our 22 in 2020 with a Gould or Young type.

If our recruiters think Green is good enough, I'd be nominating him at 3, then going Kemp at 4 if GWS match and taking Gould at 8.

Butcher was a lock for pick 2, twelve months out from the draft.  
Top 3 going into the U18 season were Scully, Butcher and Lucas... Things can change very quickly with these kids.

It's very unlikely that our overall fortunes in 2020 are going to be dictated by who we pick at 3.

When was the last time even the Rising Star winner was decisive in a team's season outcome? I'm tipping almost never - maybe Joel Selwood in 2007.

I still think we'll do some deals on the night with Freo and potentially GWS so that we convert 3 and 8 into 7,8 and 10.  If it's as even as people say around these picks then at least we get 3 goes at it - Freo and GWS would be open to a deal due to their Academy picks.

Is this possible? Not sure if rather 7, 8 & 10 or 3&8.

Exactly we can t wait 12 months not a part of our short term strategy

The kid looks like he has plenty of talent, but is this the 'risk' we all want to take?

I know it's been a talking point in terms of the club not wanting to take risks, but I'm not sold on this being one of them.  I'd rather take Ash/Young/Serong and then Weightman at Pick 8 and go from there.

I see your favourite player is Max, good thing we didn't adopt that short term strategy when we drafted him.

If Kemp is the player they want, they will take him.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date.
