The Splitting of Pick 8

Recommended Posts

If Geelong are only offering pick 14+36 for pick 9, there is no way they will offer 14+17 for 8.

We've given up a likely 2020 top4 pick, 26 and 50 for pick 8. Would have to be a pretty good deal for us to part with it you'd think.

Yet to see any realistic hypothetical that would make me want to trade either top 10 pick.

If we were going to trade, I would have done it during trade week for a player + pick.

Cant see any club with the currency to make it worth our while.

Depends entirely on what happens at 3... if we get green with no match from gws ... then split 8 with gc or bris or cats to get a tall ...McAsey or Worrell and a tiny Pickett or weightman... 

then rookie Bennell and Murray... to add to Langdon and Thomlinson...not bad haul

if gws match at 3 then jackson at 4 and Kemp or Flanders or Serong at 8 ... and Brent crosswell at 97

That several clubs are prepared to package up their mid teen pick for a top 10 shows there must be some real gems in the top 10 that won't be on the table at 14, 15, etc. 

Two top 10 players (@3+8) are far better for us than one top player @3 and two lesser more speculative players in the mid to late teens, especially now that we are likely to have Bennell.

Unless we get an offer too good to refuse we take 8 to the draft!

Even if they did offer 14+17 we should not accept it - In draft points 14+17 is worth far less than what we gave North to get pick 8 and their is an intangible value in the quality of pick 8.  No way should we 'sell' it at a discount to another club. 

If we did we would look pretty stupid having given up our 2020 first rounder and paid a massive premium to get 8.

We are backing ourselves to rise further up the ladder next year. Our 1st might have been 10, 12 or higher. Yet in a draft where up to half of the top 20 are academy or FS, that could easily get pushed to 18 or 20.

All hypothetical, but also quite realistic IMO. Good planning, I say

 Pick Trade Prospects is about the jostling for top 10 picks and a lot of clubs wanting to trade out their 2020 first-round picks but now there are few takers. 

My take from the article (paraphrasing and added my comments):

  • Giants are snookered if Adelaide won't trade #4; will have to use 6 for Green, as Sydney won't let him slip past their 5. 🙂
  • Adelaide are linked to Fischer McAsey, as is Port, Geelong, Hawks and GCS.  If Adelaide trade pick 4 or don't take him Hawks are best placed but they Geelong, and GCS are trying to trade into the top 10.  (Interestingly, McAsey hasn't had much attention on DL.)
  • Hawks are also interested in Dylan Stephens and Brodie Kemp and want to trade into the top 10 but are hampered by AFL rules that don't allow a club to trade out future picks if they trade out their first future, so like GWS they don't have enough currency to prise out a top 10 pick.  hawthorn-facing-draft-snag-as-it-looks-to-trade-future-firstround-pick
  • Melbourne (#8) and Carlton (#9) are mentioned as potential pick trades with GCS.  (Haha, after the Jack Martin shenanigans by Carlton I can't see GCS (ie Cochrane) allowing it).
  • Suggestions that the 2020 draft isn't as classy (and compromised with Academy and F/S players).

Pick trades end on Friday.  Then live-pick trade starts with the draft next week

We did very well to get our 2020 first-round pick trade done early and landed #8.  There may be few takers now with various clubs wanting out of 2020.

With so many clubs desperate to get into the top10 our pick 8 has just gone up in value!!

Candidates for pick 8 trade:

Freo: 10 + 22

GC: 15 + 20

Geelong: 14 + 17 (24 too late for me)

Port: 2 of 12, 16 and 18

Port: 2 of 12, 16 and 18 

equivalent pick 25 difference (12 + 16)

I've added the differentials to pick 8 above.

With such competition for a pick in the top 10, I think we can take advantage of the situation.
Assuming all are genuinely keen...

Dismiss GCS out of hand, and any thought of Port's 16 & 18 based on the pick values above.
To move up into the top 10 before a very weak year will cost you, and it'll cost you an early 2nd round pick.

Bluff using Freo.
Geelong? 30 is not enough when Freo are offering 28.
Port offering 28? There's a player we think will be there at 10 but not 12, so we're going with Freo.

Port offering 25? Now you're talking.

I think it will ultimately come down to where we think the players we want will fall.

10 + 22

12 + 18

14 + 17

All offer similar value but may deliver different players.

Personally I think we could trade 8 for freo's 10 + 22 allowing them a boost up the order before a Henry bid.

Then I would trade 10 for 15 + 20 from the suns as it is clear they want another top 10 pick as they might not even be able to use pick 20 due to list space.

Would leave us with picks 3, 15, 20, 22 = essentially 4 top 20 picks

It would be 8 for 15, 20, 22.

Jackson at 3

Trade 8 to Freo for 10 and 22. If they don't accept, bid on Henry at 8. Best small forward in the draft, if Freo don't match we then have two WA boys coming over so hopefully reduces go home factor later

If Freo accept the trade, go for Robertson at 10, good ball user I can imagine coming off the half back line (with leadership potential), and same philosophy as above re two WA boys. Then hope Weightman gets through to 22, if not, Pickett

Freo trade would be enticing and Gold Coast offer would be less so but I say keep the pick.

I see this as a real draft day decision, I think we'll take Jackson at pick 3 and then will see how the rest of the draft order shapes up to see if we split 8 or not. There's a chance Young or Serong are available at 8 and I think we'd take them, but if both are gone, then I think we'd looking at trying to get access to Weightman, Pickett or Taylor.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose.

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues.
