Little whisper we will be nominating Tom Green, if we have pick 3 and will be happy to take him, if not matched by GWS. He also has a brother in the GWS academy, which could make it even more int

If MFC have their heart set on Jackson then we're not going risk him just to keep GWS honest. It sucks they may get two top 5 picks but we're not going to compromise or alter our draft approach just t

How can the most talented list in the comp who  just played in a Grand Final two months ago,   have two top 5 picks in this draft What a farce

If we keep pick 3, I'd like to hear views from Demonland's draft intelligentsia about this guy.

Should we call his name at pick 3, possibly forcing GWS to match bid? If they don't match, is he good enough to warrant pick 3? 

I'm not a fan of drafting for need, or bidding to force a hand. My view is almost totally 'best available' at that pick.

Thoughts?

Sounds like Moonshadow, contrary to his stated aim of ignoring me has taken my advice on picking Green. 

Don't think he is taking your advice, there are plenty of others suggesting we nominate Green but it will be to no avail as GWS will still take him.

Has there been any acknowledgement in the media that GWS want pick 3, or is this isolated to demonland?

I feel like this scenario, if true, should be obvious to people in the business; but i have not heard anyone mention Green or a gws/melb pick swap. 

 

There has been consistent talk of GWS needing to get a 'low pick' to get Green and a high quality draftee.

If they stop where they are, it more or less places his value at pick six (or we have offered too high a price for our pick).

Mitch Cleary just said that he doesn't think we will bid on Tom Green, which then makes sense why we wont split pick 3.

Good, lets take pick 3, take Hayden Young, look at getting a small at 26 and a tall with out 3rd. Keep a pick for the pre-season or rookie draft and get on with getting the club back on the road.

Can someone pretty please explain this

 

is Tom Green an academy player /etc that’s why GWS can match!

 

if we bid, and they match, what does that actually mean in terms of draft/ picks/$ etc

we bid on him at 3

GWS says no we’ll match

then what?

they have to give up their next x picks to match the value of 3 in points which effectively releases a player further down the draft?

does it have a deleterious effect on us except maybe make us look like pr1x

they get a 20% discount on points to pick him up - they must use points from their NEXT pick (which is new, i think, as you used to be able to use back-ended picks)

only danger to us is we have to take him, which would be a shame as he looks VERY good

we won't nominate him with 3 i don't think as we won't rate him in the top 3, but who knows...maybe we do! hard to know cos we DON'T LEAK anymore

Thanks !

how can you use points from your next pick, eg if your next pick is 8 how can you take points from a pick??

each pick has points attributed to it

so we use pick 3 to bid on green, it's worth xyz points, then gw$ need to use xyz-20% points, which they can do so by using a combo of pick 12 and pick 50 say which are worth xyz-20% points

it's convoluted, and a farce, but less easily exploited than when sydney matched the mills bid a few years back as an example

That makes sense now

we could force them to pay overs by using 2 picks and sacrificing one to access the points

 

all because he’s an academy or father son?

 

thanks for explaining, much appreciated !👀🕵️♀️🤯🙏

If GWS had pick 3, they could use that on say, Sarong, and then use subsequent picks for Green when a club selects him with their pick. That's why there was talk here that we could split pick 3 with GWS and possibly receive 2 picks inside 15 for 3. Could be win/win.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
