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.

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)?

He's the [censored]. 

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

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

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.

    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 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. 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? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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
