Young will not last that long. He’s a certain top 5 pick. If we split the pick, we miss him.

I’m hoping we hold onto 3 + 8 and take Young and Stephens.

A very solid outcome unless we can split 8 and still land Stephens with say 10/11 & a bonus of Pickett with a third pick somewhere around 30 to 40.

The Hawks have 11 & 30.

With Freo having Robertson, Jackson and Henry around their picks why would they trade?

If they pick Robertson at 7,  then they have to hope that ourselves or Carlton ( who have both indicated they are interested in small forwards)don’t pick Henry or they will be forced to match bid or else miss out on him. Doing a deal with us is their best way to secure 2 top 10 picks and Henry.

Rewatched Henrys highlights, he will be a star and is an impressive young lad, so yes an early bid as you say by us or Carlton would be on the cards.

Swap Kemp with Stephens and that is my dream scenario too.

Listening to Jason Taylor on Road To Draft podcast - Luke Jackson in the frame for pick 3. They see him as a forward option. Don't think he will be a full-time ruckman at AFL level. If we draft him, he will be part of the forward group. Interesting to hear considering he's barely played forward and has played pure ruck through the year. Seems we may get a 'tall forward' after all...

I certainly hope not LT.  Pert should be intervening on this IF Taylor (Goody) is/are seriously considering a ruckman at 3

No he shouldn't. He's the CEO, not the list manager or talent scout.

If, as a CEO or footy manager, you don't trust the judgement of your recruiting manager, then they should be your recruiting manager.

Young and Kemp. Young because he has kicking ability we need and is rated number 3 in most phantom drafts. Kemp because he would be and was rated number 3 prior to his knee issue. Pick for best available in the top 10 selections.

so how many times have u seen these guys live?

I think the recruiters know more than phantom drafts on bigfooty

So I cannot have a preference. And the phantom drafts I speak of are Cal Twoomey, not big footy. So once again. Young and Kemp.😁

Twomey and Doerre ....

..."As well as attending live games, Doerre pores through match vision, analyses the stats and talks to industry sources to ensure he can offer the most insightful draft analysis"....

Young & to a lessor extent Kemp both prominent in that win (statistically anyway...didn't see the match).

Rowell was a cut above that day. Anderson and Young also played well and showed they could match it against men. Bianco was also good with his dash. If we had a second round pick, he'd be right in our cross hairs. He'll wind up a decent little player IMO

Yes Bianco also seems to figure in other matches at this level.  I haven't seen any footage

Bianco is projected as a pick 15-30 type. He’s a small-medium player who has good kicking skills and a bit of dash. Played mainly wing and  halfback flank. I reckon we’d be right into him if we had a second round pick to use.

Footy (sporting) clubs can rise and fall on the back of one monumental mistake GLG.  Sorry but there are times when a CEO needs to step up and be counted and that would be one of them.

Pert is not a babe in the woods.  He would know when he sees a mega blunder looming and if he didn't act then he isn't doing his job and may as well walk himself.

98.5% of the time certainly.  But there comes a very rare time when it's a must...

Rowell is clearly the pack leader for 2019 LT but i would have Anderson and Young not that far apart either.  Anderson possibly by a nose as by all accounts he has the ability to kick a few handy goals pushing forward.

There is a top 3 (☝🏼) and a bit of daylight from there imv.

Personally, if we're to go by highlights, Dylan Stephens is exactly what our midfields lacks & needs. Speed, class & goals - Fantastic point of difference from the kid.

I've timestamped 3 bits of vision below that have impressed me more so than most highlight packages thus far.

1. @ 1:03

2. @ 2:06

3. @ 2:36

Maybe it's Dylan we're looking to make an early jump on? I hope so.

 

wow, Dylans highlights are by far the most impressove, reminds me of robbie flower

Well, it looks likely, unless we stuff up completely, we should get 2 very good players if we keep 3 and 8.

I can see us taking Young 3 and Stephens 8 if available.

Stephens is versatile. Can play wing, outside mid and half forward. Has a lot of zip!

I do think Adelaide would be prepared to take him with Pick 4.

I'm not sure picking 1 18 year old over another is the 1.5%, but each to their own.

Pert was reportedly far too involved in the Collingwood FD during his tenure there. I'd be loathe to see him doing the same here.

    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 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.

    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?

    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.

    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
