Why are you basing a stupid and under-researched post on a game off a four-day break against the top side after a 2pt loss against the second top side.  Its nonsense.

@Elegt correct me if i am wrong here? I don't think you entirely understand how list management works do you..  

We got Jackson, Pickett and Rivers out of our last draft. I'd say that was a clear win. Well done Jason Taylor.

@Elegt go to bed.

I would probably add Luke Jackson to that list of puzzling draft selections ..What is the point of a forward who cant mark above his Head ? Hopefully he will come good in this area but I already have m y doubts .

Agree on last year, I think a Caleb Serong / Georgiadis combo would have us looking much better right now. Instead we took 2 raw athletes

Elegt....

Its not a 50/50 marking system... it’s also not one guy’s decision.


Rookies, >40 in draft have less theoretical success rates.

 

61% of players play >10 games. Less than 1 in 3 play 50 games. So are they all successes?

 

Would be interesting to have a look at Dodoro, etc “success” or whoever you deem as a replacement... you will be surprised.

 

I don’t read every thread, so probably mentioned elsewhere, the guy 3goals against us this week,  Jason wanted.

I think the mistake was hoping Jackson would be a good forward option, given he never played there as a Junior, better to get a more natural forward if that is the ultimate aim. Sure he may be a great ruckman one day but he's never going to be a buddy franklin

Yep and we could've drafted Georgiades. We picked 2 players ahead of him

This should have been your first post and then you wouldn’t have copped it as much as you’ve had. 

Possibly, but half of what he posted was around trading, which Jason Taylor would have very little to do with.  All I could see someone like Mahoney doing is saying 'we are trading our first rounder, do you think we can get this type in the second round and so forth'.

While he might have missed on a few over the years, can any recruiter claim to have hits 100% of the time?  Not a chance.  

At the moment you could regard a selection of someone like Weideman as a miss, as we would have hoped to see more from him to this point.  The same could be said for Brayshaw.  Both picks inside the top 10.

But he was the recruiter who went with both Petracca and Oliver, both clear wins for us.  He was part of the 'mini draft' trade/selection that allowed us to nab Hogan before he hit the draft. 

I'm not going to sit here and say he is perfect - far from it.  But for every perceived 'miss', he has had some hits along the way.

I think the ultimate aim is to get an elite ruckman.

My point was that it’s better to have more substance to an inflammatory statement. Doesn’t make it right or wrong.

Why so early? Gawn has heaps of years ahead of him. How long does he have to wait?

I think we should have picked up Georgiadies with Jackson's pick the only reason why he wasn't taken early was because he was injured. He's exactly what we need we don't need a ruckman but now we are stuck with him praying that he can become a forward.

None of these have anything to do with Taylor.

I'll now wait for you to start a "Sack Tim Lamb, Josh Mahoney and Darren Farrugia (is he even still there?)" thread.

Plenty of criticisms of late picks, who for the majority of draftees, don't have long, successful careers. 
Criticising Rookie draft picks looks like desperation too.

There is zero certainty in drafting and even now, after the fact, there's not many convincing alternatives being offered.  The real value of the Lever trade has been covered many times and Lever has outplayed the players taken with those picks.  It's pointless going through it again because the same people only focus on the 'two first round picks' sound bite without looking at what those picks were and who was available at the time. 

For a draftee taken:

31-50: Only 35% play more than 60 games, whilst only 24% make it to 100. 
You've got a 1 in 4 chance of finding a 100 games player.
91% don't make it to 200.

 

51-70: Only 40% play more than 20 games in their career. 
86% don't make it to 100 games whilst 95% don't make it past 200.

A top 10 pick in the Rookie Draft has a 15% chance to play 100 games.
39% of the top 10 never play a game.

 

 

Besides... I though the team was good and the coch terrible..?

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team
