Thanks for that GLG. 

No worries. It's the former father/son system where you could match with your next pick, whatever that was. Think that's how we got Viney for pick 26

Not only should we bid but we should bid and pray GWS dont match. Green looks every bit as good as Oliver looked at that age. Jackson looks too raw to take a risk on at pick 3. It could work out but its a risk we dont need to take. We should at the very least bid on Green.

I just wasn’t sure if they go use their next picks and then use their lower picks and bring a deficit into next year and keep their later first round in the example I gave. 

In other words would if we bid on Green and they decide not to match they would be rating Jackson better than Green and a pick in the late teens.

not really, because the cost of getting green is now pick 4 instead of cobbling together late picks and a 2020 deficit

if we don't nominate green, they get a top 4 pick then wait to match a later nomination for green where they can get him cheap

At least make the bid, and if they match then take the alternative. Personally I want Green. Another player similar to Oliver, Yes Thanx.

He doesn't look as good as Oliver at the same age to me. He's slow & he even admits he lacks pace in his interview on YouTube. We have way too many of this type of player in Viney, Brayshaw and Sparrow. Don't see what the fuss is about.

I’ve only seen the highlights package, so I might be doing the player a great disservice, but I’m not sure there is a lot of upside potential in Green. He is a bull at the under 18 level, as his physical development is more advanced than the majority of opponents, which is his big advantage now. But at afl level, there are many more bigger and stronger players than him, and without the ability to explode from packs, which he lacks, I just think his upside will be limited. Whereas a player like Jackson, while maybe a work in progress, appears to have the attributes that give him a much higher ceiling than Green. For this reason I think we will go with Jackson.

Bidding on Tom Green makes sense.

 

We shouldn't let GWS get a free pass either.

 

Let's force their hand to take him early.

 

There is no way GWS will allow a bid to go unmatched.

We don’t need another big bodied inside mid. With Petracca coming into the middle more, taking Green seems like more of the same, and with Oliver, Viney, Trac and Harmes,... do we really need another? 
pass for me

interesting the Sydney appear to also be passing...

While I agree we don't need more inside mids, the general consensus among recruiters is you draft for talent at the top end, and if he's rated as the best player available then the Dees will take him.

Reportedly going to slide until around 10ish somehow going by media today. Would be staggering if that happened!

Thinking about how easy it was for Kelly to get to WC from the cats, is there going to be an already made Captain of the future at WC in this draft. I think that there will be. 

From our perspective have we picked up anyone from GWS fairly easily. Has a carrot been dangled to ensure the path of Green to GWS. I think there will be be. 

Like in the US, nothing written down, nothing here......

Definitely bid on Green.

It doesn't matter if we're flush with inside-mids: our draftees won't make a difference to our immediate flag chances. 

If we uncover another blue-chipper like Oliver in Green - then the investment will pay dividends in a couple of years. 

Whether that be trading out Green, or another one of our insiders. Oliver is worth close to two pick 3's. 

Paraphrasing, but Taylor said in his recent Road to the Draft interview that Green will have a stellar AFL career.

Not really LT.  Assuming we don't bid on him GWS then get to use their pick 4 on a top 10 prospect and any bid that comes after that will be matched by GWS with a bag of chaff.  Why would anyone else bother after 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

    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
