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 see in another post, there is voting on our picks 3 & 8. Voting update now has Young and Kemp as our preferred options.  That’s my call from early days.  I see Young playing in about 7-8 games next year and being managed. 
 

I hope JTs strategy to get pick 8 was to land Kemp before he becomes one of the big clubs bargain buy.   Hawks & Cats at 11 and 14 would think its Xmas if he got that far.  Sure we’d wait until 2021 but he’s got qualities not often found.  Speed.  Size. Power. Goalkicking.  Mid or forward.  Dangerfield like.

And a bad knee. It would be demonesque to draft another inside mid in top 10 with a bad knee when we are crying out for small classy forwards who can kick and outside mids who can stay on the park.

I dare say that Gawn had a worse knee before and after coming onto our list, yet he's turned out to be a half decent pick up.

Seriously @olisik a little optimism may do you the world of good.

You really are Demonland's answer to 'old man shouts at clouds'.

Also, you're wrong. Again.

Pardon my ignorance but are there any highlight videos of Brodie Kemp?

I am open to drafting him at pick 8 if he is still available.

The ACL issue is a risk, but we had Petracca do his knee in his first year that we drafted him so you cannot predict anything like that.

I actually think Sydney will take Brodie Kemp as a long-term replacement for Josh Kennedy.

Kemp will be an option for Crows and Swans.  Agree Swans may see the huge upside in waiting 12 months and get a potential superstar quality type.  Without too much pressure, this kid is a potential serious A grader.

'norm', I'm beginning to think you are the shifter Sheahan of Demonland.

Never short on praise/hype for the kids coming through.

How does Kemp rate talent wise to the top prospects in the 2020 draft?

If he is as good as advertised and the 2020 draft is short on talent at the top end and we can steal him at pick 8,   the North pick in 2020 almost becomes irrelevent to me

I think the view of most list managers (Except Norths) is next years draft is thin, and corrupted by 16/40 being NGA.  ie If we kept next years first round (assume in teens) we may have ended up with a pick that would be equivalent to a pick around 25+ this year. No way would a Kemp quality player be available next year in the teens (or even at 8).

Of course there is an element of risk in taking Kemp - but that is why he may be available at pick 8 instead of going well inside the top 5.

FWIW, I would take a player following a knee reco over a player who had torn cartilage in his hips.  Completely different injuries and players.

Good call. He is better than most of the Top picks imo in the thin-highly compromised draft next year. That’s why I like the swap with Kangas

I would have thought an expert medical consultant such as yourself would know that Jimmy Toumpas only has one hip, or pelvic girdle as it is also known. It's also not connected to the knee, so I don't get how the two player's conditions can be compared.

Q: Is it wise to pick a player like Kemp who may be sidelined for twelve months and would be selected based on minimal past records. ? i acknowledge his athleticism and history.

Welcome to DL Ohio.

In answer to your question- you don’t have to worry, mostly everyone here is an expert on every player from 4 minutes of video highlights.

Having not even watched his footage I can tell you Kemp will clearly be a superstar. Unless he becomes Trengrove-mark-II.

Somebody else will likely have a more illuminating answer you your valid question.

True.  I also have read in a few articles that Kemp will be available to play in the 2nd half of the season (if all goes well with his rehab).

I really hope we draft this kid.

I saw Vic country v SA under 18s.  It was a high standard game and great performances by Serong, Flanders, Ash, Kemp and Weightman.  

Kemp had the ball on a string and showed his pace, strength and kicking. I thought he was BOG but it was probably also because he kicked the winning goal.  
 

Serong also showed that he will be very very good player and I wouldn’t be disappointed if we called out his name.

Kid called Will Gould was also outstanding for SA.  Had him for a top 10 pick. Reminded me of Shannon Hurn. His presence and long kicking was top grade.

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.

Will Kemp play this season? or is he out for the season? When did he do his knee? I wouldn't mind Kemp being picked by us at 8 there is very little to worry about with knee recos now. One year out and your back on your feet, still prefer Weightman I think you can pick up a small forward at 8 if he is that good.

I take your point except plenty of good footballers played their first game when 17 or 18 yrs of age. The likes of Ablett Jnr, Robbie Flower etc. I just hope we do not pick a lemon.

I recall Clayton Oliver was a smokey pick jumping up the ranks very quickly. So hope you are right about Kemp.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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! 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?

    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

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    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. That should never have happ
