Great get guys! Well done!

Love to hear more from him about Sparrow and Jordon if possible, maybe even Bradtke.

First two (and Nietschke) are on the list of questions but I forgot about Bradtke. Interesting to see where he stands given the drafting of Jackson.

Please ask if we would have gone for Anderson if GCS didn’t get the priority pick? Also if we were close to bidding on Green and whether GWS snookered us by moving to pick 4?

If you get the chance i’d be interested to know if they take into consideration the “go home factor” on a player by player basis if at all.

How does he and Mahons work in relation to picks? Taylor rates this years draft better than next, “hey Josh get me as many low picks as you can this year!” Does that happen?

Since he came to the club is there a player or 2 he was uhming and ahhing about and chose a different player that he now regrets not taking?

Any players we were going to pick but just got pipped on by another club that he’d love to have at Dees?

Questions:

Can he give us a rundown on who the demons might have coming up as potential academy picks (or whatever they're called)? There are clubs that seem to be dripping with options and others (like us who have very few). Can he clarify our (NT) zone in this regard and has any of it been lost to GCS. I believe we have the Alice Springs area but is that the extent of it?

Can he also talk about father-sons coming up in the next few years? Is Jeff White's son automatically tied to GCS with these new gift rules or can he still come to us (assuming he makes the AFL grade)?

What is the departmental structure now that T Viney is behind a tractor? Who's the list manager etc?

Cheers

Considering we took three interstaters in the draft, I’d like to know how much ‘flight risk’ or ‘return home’ factor they take into consideration? I’m assuming a straight bat answer by JT might be played here and clubs like to back themselves in but to be fair dinkum - does this not rank highly in the selection process?

It might be too specific, but I'd love to hear his thoughts about Pickett vs Weightman.

 

I'd also be interested to hear about:

- science vs stats vs gut feel when it comes to drafting. Are certain stats non negotiable or very strong lead indicators? How strongly is biometric information considered? Ie expected height based on family data?

- draft night process. Do we rate all players in the draft in order then pick the highest available? Do we rate groups of players collectively so that we can pick sliders? Who makes the call to trade live picks vs draft what is available?

In the interview with Cal Twomey he said because of where we looked like finishing he sat on some junior players quite closely towards the end of the year. Can you ask if Jackson and Pickett were two of those players?

Kobe Farmer.

Also Kalani White (the other Jeff's son). Probably still a few years off but would be interesting to know if Father Son trumps Gold Coast's academy zone selection. Knowing the AFL they will most likely change the rules if he is looking like a gun.

I'd like to ask him who he expects to jump out of the pack this year and surprise.  Also, where is Petty pencilled in to play.

Some really good questions suggested here, mine are mundane.....

Asking about NGA prospects for next year would be good. Kobi George and Deakyn Smith I am aware of, but are there others?

Just to finish with a trivial one:

Daisy Pearce has had twins, a girl and a boy. 

If both of them turn out to be potential AFL players, what is their eligibility to play for MFC as Mother son/daughter?

If you're referring to this season, Goodwin said he will play forward in his interview with SEN.

Thank you. We did it 2 years ago and I was planning on doing it again last year but then the opportunity to interview Josh Mahoney came up.

Daisy said on SEN last year when they were born that she needs to play 50 AFLW games.

They should lower it to 25 or 30 if they are only going to play just over a handful of games a year.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    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. That should never have happ
