THE MYSTERY OF DRAFT PICK 3?

Recommended Posts

Shattered but that's the way it goes. They should of given the priority next year.

So who is it Ash, Serong, Young or someone else? Thoughts?

Personally i think Lachie Ash, but the smokey i'd consider is Flanders who i think is going to be very good player. 

young also ticks a lot of boxes. it's really him or Ash for me.

Bid for Tom Green.

If that’s matched (all but certain) I like the look of Young.

We won't take a Pick 3. We'll trade for a couple of lower first round picks (or some kind of combo with later picks).

Apart from anything else, we need to find a mid second-rounder for Langdon.

This pick is going to GWS for Toby  Greene, he wants to reunite with his father, after his father's arrest, he wants to understand why he is a cheap shot hero

Second rounder for Frost would be unlikely/daylight robbery.

Tom Greene if it can be done.

Caleb Serong by a country mile if we hold on to pick three, (which I hope we do). 

He's an extremely well rounded player who is exactly what we need in our forward half.

Not our pick 21 (and maybe a future pick back if they figure he is not worth pick 21)?

Is he an elite kick?

Hayden Young, watched a bit of the U18 championships IMO he is the best kick in the draft, meets a need an attacking HBF with a enough pace, good size

We should trade pick 22 and our 2020 first rounder for Langdon and pick 6 which Fremantle get from St Kilda.

Then we take 2 of Young, Serong, Weightman, Flanders and Ash...

Those three names are pretty much who we'll be looking at for pick 3.

A Smokey for this pick will also be Sam Flanders.

Has to be Hayden Young, he's the best kick in the draft, is an elite intercept mark, provides a lot of overlap run and is also very good defensively, he's even shown a contested side to his game this second half of the season. For a HBF has no weaknesses that I can see, reminds me of a taller bachar houli. He's exactly what we need perfect, hibbo replacement and allows Salem to push up on a wing if we need.

Just re Ash, our back half has no speed. May, Lever, Jetta, Salem, Hore are all neat kicks but it's that run and carry which we really lack currently

He's the [censored]. 

Just think of all the smart users. He's not a laser foot, just knows where to put it. 

In today's footy, with the use of zones and screens. knowing where to put and being able to do so (e.g. by weighting the ball  chipping over a wall etc) is more important than a laser like kick.

Just look at how hard tigers made it for gws to get the ball forwa4d of centre.

This is one reason why fritter, who is a beautiful kick, turned it over often when playing back. Struggled to get it to where it needed to go.

Agree and further to it Tigers use laser handballs rather than kicks, sharp, low at the body and creative.

i'd be happy with any of Ash, Young, and Serong for pick 3. they all look good players and are not purely inside mid sorts.

but I do think they'll try and split the pick, probably with GWS, and draft a speedy forward type like Cody Weightman or Miles Bergman, and a rebounding half back sort like Will Gould instead.

Ash to me is exactly what we need, Half back with speed, composure, and a beautiful long kick, he loves to take the game on. 

if you've got him and Salem on the flanks our kicking out of the back half suddenly looks a hell of a lot better. and Hibbo either has a hard time holding his spot or potentially could make the move further up the ground to a wing.

    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

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    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

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    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

    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
