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.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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

    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 by George on the Outer

    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.

    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

    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
