My theory is that the only reason with bought pick 8 was for Kemp.  Id say we know he will be there at 8. 

 

 

 

Seems a long shot.

Not sure why clubs would have a 'gentleman's agreement' on who is taking who during trade week. It's far too early. 

You might be right that we're hoping he'll be there or that chances are good that he'll be there. But that's about it I reckon.

Yeah don't think so.

Sydney will bid on Green as they are desperate for an inside mid. Once GWS select Green they will turn their attention straight to Kemp who they are big fans of.

The thing that might help us is clubs might be reluctant to use their first pick on a boy who can't play for a year. Club fans may be more impatient and want to see their boys playing at some level right away.

For us, he would be our 2nd pick after 3, which allows a bit more understanding from the fans.

Then again, a strong club wouldn't worry about what the fans think and the Swans are a strong club.

Interesting times.

If there are no pick swaps in the top 8 it could go something like

3 Young 

4 Serong

5 Flanders

6 Green

7 Jackson

8 Kemp

On the above Ash is still there to help Kemp get to our pick.

As I said Interesting times.

Any recruiting dept that made decisions based on this factor is totally derelict in their duty. Should never be a consideration.

Even less of an issue for us, given that we have no first rounder next year. Very few have an impact year 1 like a Selwood or Walsh (don't even think Cripps or Fyfe were that much chop in year one).

yes but there is massive massive pressure on clubs to improve for memberships, sponsorship and to move up the ladder. I have no doubt most clubs are impatient and for instance its much hard to prize a first rounder this year than next year from any club.

If we traded to 8 to take a shot at Kemp - and I believe we have (taking Jordan early last year provides a clue to our approach) - and Kemp is off the table: it will mean there's something solid still available.

There's about ten decent players being bandied about who appear to be considered quite even after the top 4, and then there's a sharp drop-off - trading to 8 is really hitting that 'sweet spot' of the draft.

If we're not interested we can start live trading down for freebies - possibly more than once - and maybe down to Weightman territory. These are the clubs below us. Let them fight it out for the last scraps. 

Carlton 

Freo

Hawks

Port

Bulldogs

Geelong

Brisbane

Richmond

Yeh nah you’re Range Rover. 

I know this is all a bit of a game with you Ethan, but I can vouch for Ohio David.  I went to school with him in the late 1950s and the 60s when we rarely missed going to Melbourne home games together.  I moved interstate in 1970, but our passion for the Dees became the the 'glue' that  cemented a friendship that has lasted more than 60 years.   I promise you, if David is 'Range Rover', you are the equivalent of a Leyland P76, and I respect most of your views far too much to regard you in that light.

I don't know if Kemp is the one, but I think we are really looking at someone at 8. I think if they are gone we might go talking during the live trade for (say) a couple of mid teen picks.

That said I hope we don't. I hope that we do what we have done over that last couple of trade / draft periods - know what we want and make it happen. I think we have a better team and admin than the average supporter gives us credit for. 2019 was a blip for many reasons, so I'll back the team to be better and smarter in all parts of the game from now.

What? You don't know the rules? You have to discredit the poster you disagree with, not do all that fact stuff. Troll them and then claim the win no matter how stupid your plan was. Sheeesh. I't in the T&C here somewhere.

It could just be that we think the top 10 this year are better than the 15-20 range next year. Given we're backing ourselves to climb the ladder next year, we would hope we'd be looking at a top 8 finish next year, therefore 15-20. Once you take into our account the alleged compromised nature of the 2020 draft, it makes enough sense.

That is why I put in the 3rd line of my post.

Don't kid yourself, some clubs do things to appease their fans.

My line of thinking wasn't down-trading for two picks in the teens. More that we'd be dangling for a Carlton/Adelaide 2018 type deal to get us to the the top end of next year. Failing that we could slide for one pick in the teens and pick up something for next year similar to what we sold to get to 8 - scoring a free/cheap pick in the teens.

I asked a draft watcher today his thoughts on next year’s draft...he was...not complimentary 

Also said that he doesn’t believe a thing that is said in the media about Melbourne’s trade / draft plans as - since the regime change and Mahoney’s role change - “they don’t leak”

He thinks we might trade pick 3 still but if we don’t then we’d be crazy not to pick Young

This is a thread about drafting Brodie Kemp. Can I direct you to the delist section with that line-up.

I think we might just bid on Green with 3 and GWS will match it and then we will select Young. I do not see us splitting pick 3. Pick 8 will be interesting. I think that Kemp might be the one we want and if he is not there come our pick I think we might be open to the trade of picks. Maybe with the Freo. Our pick 8 for their pick 10 and 22. Effectively dropping one or two picks and picking up an early second round.

Kemp brought up in JT podcast.  Upside is huge. Have to see if JT has the nerve to back Kemp in for 2021.  His abilities are Dangerfield like and the type of players all of us want to see. Real talent and excitement.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    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. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    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

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w
