I’m looking forward to the melts from Rusty if we don’t pick Young. He’s already penned him into our backline ahead of our best small defender!

Who now doesn't have a spot in the team!

Coz we dont need his elite kicking.

Just one of those players that we never seem to have but other clubs do. His mantra being get ball, kick ball and kill the opponent!

At first I thought Young and Weightman , but now I’m coming around to absolute best available.

Young, Kemp, Serong, Flanders, Weightman in that order.

Green and Kemp with Steven being unlucky. Ruled him out for being a SA boy.  Weightman as a top ten pick, no.

Is that you Goodwin?

Best 22 will look like this

B: Inside mid,  Inside Mid,  Inside Mid

HB: Inside Mid, Inside Mid, Inside Mid

C Inside Mid, Inside Mid, Langdon

R: Gawn, Inside Mid, Inside Mid

HFF: Inside Mid, Inside Mid, Inside Mid

Green at 3 Best available

I could have done all our  draft picks and delisting on my own for peanuts to what the Club pays in recruiters and meetings.. Agree with them all expect Frostie. Just needed one guy giving me a chop out doing the Langdon and Thomlinson deals

I am starting to wonder if we should take Fisher Macasey and Caleb Serong. MaCasey is a tall forward and Serong is a Midfield/Forward. Wouldn’t those 2 meet our needs best?

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.

No best available unless we get s third pick then  small forward or Sokol would be nice 

so Young At  3 and Kemp/ Serong / Jackson at next pick and Weightmen/Sokol for last pick.

PSD Reckon Martin/Sam Gray/ Christiansen/ or Walker from Lions fir key forward and defence steadiness depth. Good mark and doesn't panic Could take Oscars place!!

Geez Stephens is quick and what we need. Wonder if we could turn him into a ground ball half forward like a Castagna type. Then later in career can play wing.

I pointed out in another post that we haven't had a great deal of success with SA players from the SANFL, I notice that Dom Barry was mentioned in that clip as being, perhaps, best on ground.

If I was going for an interstate player, I'd pick one from WA before SA, Jackson looks a gem, as does Robertson, I'd be stoked if we picked either of them with Young.

If we go to the Draft with pick 3 and pick 8 then it’s Young and Kemp that I hope we draft.

However, my dream result which is most likely a pipe dream would be trading pick 3 to Fremantle for pick 7 and pick 10. I think it’s highly likely that Young would be picked with one of the first 6 picks, if not then we would obviously pounce with pick 7. If he has been picked then I would hope that we pick Kemp, Weightman and Gould with picks 7, 8 and 10. 

Question is whether Fremantle would even be interested in trading their picks with us and whether they have a target at pick 3 who would be gone by pick 7 which is probably unlikely.

Gut feel is we head to the draft with pick 3 and pick 8.

Love the sound of this.

If we arent picking a player at pick 3 that has  star potential, we may as well throw the pick in the bin.  Too many of the kids projected to go from 3-12 look to be very average, at best they might fill a role in a team if they make the grade.

But pick 3 isnt for role players, its to get a superstar.    Kemp or Serong for me at 3.  Would be a dream to get both (realistically would be Serong 3 and Kemp at 8 )

Serong [3] and Weightman [8], but it won't happen, most likely. Perhaps, Kent as we have a plethora of improving smalls.

For no other reason that when they retire they could buy a pub.

Melbourne would benefit most from the speed and polish of Dylan Stephens and secondly from  Weightman who has the attributes of a Brent Harvey.

Importantly, Stephens is senior football hardened and would shine from Round 1.

Young and Stephens by a long, long way...

Dont mind this, young has to be a lock at 3, be way too hard to split it and still  get him so i say no to splitting.

stephens has played senior footy and played good senior footy and has the speed and foot skills to break a game open.(yes im a 3 minute highlight clip expert).

Yesterday I had breakfast with a mate that has been part of an AFL club’s recruitment team for 10 years and due to him passing me info prior to the actual Draft, I would rather keep the Club confidential, however, let me assure you that this is one hell of a successful club. 

My mate’s role is purely Victorian based and focuses totally on the TAC, no other league. 

The bottom line is that he told me this Club had a major meeting last Saturday whereby all the TAC watchers met for a full day and compiled a mock Draft of Victorian TAC players. 

Whilst having to be a little guarded at this time of year, my mate told me that at Saturday’s meeting, Hayden Young was the almost totally unanimous choice as number 3 from the TAC. In fact, my mate scoffed at the thought of overlooking Young at 3 even after the interstate kids were factored in  

He was very strong in his praise of Kemp but didn’t want to elaborate too much about other players in the 5 to 10 range as this is where his Club would be selecting.

He did however say that neither he or any of his other TAC watchers had Weightman in the first 12 and said he’d be highly surprised if any Club took him in the Top 10 after the interstaters were added in.

Thought you might be interested.

 

 

Thanks for the heads up.

Were they the same people by any chance that were unanimous on Toumpas? :blink:

We don't have to dream on Young but i assume you are referring to 'the rest'.  Decent mix if we land them.

The alternative is, IF we believe we can get Stephens or Weightman at 10 is a swap with Freo for their 10 & 58.  58 on Pickett, provided we are certain he is going to be there.

Can we split 8!

If dealing with one club only and keeping the picks in the first round then it would have to be for Port’s picks 12 and 18 or Geelong’s picks 14 and 17.

I think we are massive chance to split it with Freo for pick 10 and 22. Id assume we would leave it to the last minute to do deal(provided the player we want are still there)but feel it will work for both clubs. If they want Jackson or Robertson an earlier pick might suit them. Also they might be fearful that us or Carlton might bid on Henry before their bid. Even if neither of us bid on Henry it’s a cert that he will be picked before 22 and Freo will match using pick 22 anyways. 

We will get good player at 10 and be able to pick up another player with 22. Could get Stephens or weightman at 10 and maybe Bergman of Taylor at 22. 

Also by doing it on the night we can see if there’s a gun we want still available at 8 we just take him. 

Win win

I think people need to keep in mind what we sold to get pick 8 - and why we were willing to sell what we sold.

    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

    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?

    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.

    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.
