Tom Green (Drafted by GWS Giants)

Recommended Posts

To me GWS has shown their hand. They're going to match any bid on Green, otherwise there's no point doing the trade.

We must bid on Green to stop GWS picking up 2 highly rated players. GWS match, we can still take whoever we want at 4.

How can GWS be so sure that we wouldn't bid on Green?

This whole time its been Rowell, Anderson and Green as the clear top 3 with even some dispute as to green being the clear best inside mid, and if the comparisons of Crips are real and he is the best inside mid surely we bid!

Is there any proper footage from his Under 18 NAB champs?

Nah I think it means they are happy with either Jackson or Green.

Scenario 1: Melbourne don't bid on Green, select Jackson at 3. GWS select player X (Young?) at 4, then Green with later picks.

Scenario 2: Melbourne bid on Green, GWS don't match. GWS select Jackson at 4.

It looks like Green is ours if we want him.

There's 4 games of highlights on the Nab League app.

He's an imposing unit with an off the charts ability to clear his hands and then fire off excellent handballs on both sides of his body.

But I watched 2 full games and I didn't see him even once make a difficult 20-50m attacking kick, it was either long or rushed from a contest or short safe hit ups. Similarly I don't see him once run the ball and attack, it was all handballs.

He certainly does some things exceptionally well but it's almost all at or around stoppages/contests and so in many ways the same questions that apply for Jackson apply to Green as well.

Ultimately, not a lot has changed for us.

We don't get to trade with GWS, but I don't think we wanted to anyway.

We still get a top 3 player at our first pick.
The likelihood now is that we get our choice between Green and Jackson, unless GWS decide to match, which will hurt them.

Agree FiTB. Bid on Green @ 3, that way it stops GWS from bringing in 2 quality players before our subsequent pick 8 (and thus one less top quality prospect for us to contemplate drafting).

What's the worst that could happen? We pick up Green.....................oh no 2 Clayton Oliver's in our midfield. Yes please!

We have as they say "the first live pick" It has to be Green, if only to keep GWS honest. No free picks, pay the same dues as the rest of the competition.

They might want anyone, we should ensure pick 4 is used for one player if they want Green.

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 to upset them.

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

They've also given up pick 12 (received from Shiel), pick 18, a future first and will wipe out all of their remaining picks from this year and next year to do it.

The academy system is a farce but any other team who traded out a player like Shiel and then  combined a bunch of picks to work up the draft board would end up with 2 very high picks too.

Knightmare saying on twitter if he was Melbourne he would be bidding on Green as he considers him on par with Rowell and Anderson and thinks the only reason the Giants wouldn't match is he's a surplus positionally to what they need, but i think the same is true for us as well.

I believe GWS want Green’s brother next year too, can’t see them not taking Green this year. I believe GWS have probably done a deal with the Dees, otherwise why release their pick trade now? By releasing the pick trade now, instead of waiting until the Dees made their pick on trade night, they have let us know that we are the only team that can bid on Green.
 

As others have pointed out, it’s a massive waste of a trade if GWS are going to match any bid on Green, which makes me believe that they know we are not going to bid on Green, or they don’t care if we do. Guess we’ll find out in 8 days 😂

No true for us.

We need superstar talent, and  Green is that.

Never draft by positional need at pick 3

Funnily enough he is exactly the type of player the GC needs. 

I wonder if they will go will Rowell and green with picks one and 2. 

That will be some engine room in 2-3 years

Always go best available!

Im not wowed by his highlights either tbh, sure his ground ball and quick hands are great but he doesnt look to have much acceleration or precise kicking.... Is it possible his Power rankings are high because he is playing in NSW against poor opposition"?

 

Having said that, i remember people commenting on Ollie Wines' ability from highlight packages picking out his lack of pace and penetration in kicking....

Personally i like Young @3     Kemp  @8, BIg body powerfull explosive midfeilder...

I suspect if we bid on Green GWS will have a contingency in place to trade down the order for multiple picks with greater points value. Not their ideal outcome but still ensures an pick in the best 30 or so players on top of Green.

Maybe Sydney would want to talk about jumping back in front of GWS. Maybe 3 and 2020 2nd and 3rd for 5 and 2020 1st. Lots of permutations still possible.

Noah Anderson would be a very handy pick in that case.

The point is 99.5% of the football world think it is ridiculous for Jackson to go at 3. Lost me if it happens, sick of this crap.

I appreciate the work of KM and the effort he puts in ..... but he’s a one amateur from Victoria and there is no way he has the resources to be anything more than an interesting rough guide for the rest of the amateurs. 

Why do you think GWS and Melbourne are both trying get Jackson? Why did he say that he was probably going to go to Melbourne (pick 3), GWS (pick 4), Adelaide (pick 6) or Fremantle (pick 7)? Because “99.5% think it’s ridiculous”?

No, it’s probably because the AFL recruiters know that he’s one of the very best players in the draft, and they are clamouring to draft him.

Or maybe, as many of you seem to think, it’s because the majority of AFL recruiters are complete idiots.

No but considering you must think we are, you might be able to explain the possible Jackson Draft with Gawn and Preuss.

    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! 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
