Welcome to Demonland - Pick 33 & Pick 50



Recommended Posts


Pretty good deal to be honest.

We swapped second rounders (although this one will fall a little later than our one next year I'd say) while we get a third for a fourth rounder.

Plus it will help us land Brown as well which is a positive.

And we still potential picks coming in for Preuss and Hannan, so we can make further moves if we wish.

Our picks 26 and 33 to North for Brown and their pick 28.

Or does that make no sense?

Have a feeling pick 33 alone won't be satisfactory for North.

North don't want him, they have clearly stated that, pick 33 is more than enough, I reckon 50 should be enough.  We are just building mid range picks to better our draft position.

Anyone think we're going to use pick 50?

Yes, on another indigenous small forward, who becomes better than Cyril Rioli and plays 300 games for us,  winning the Norm Smith 3 times and getting 5 flags with the Dees.

Cal Twomey is of the opinion that we will only use 3 picks. Given that we have 3 better picks at this stage maybe not. 
Wonder if pick 50 is of any value to another club?

The brains trust have made a mistake if we are unable to consolidate our picks or push one of them into 2021.

Really FT 

You have no idea which players we will pick up at 18 19 or 28 even allowing for the compromised draft picks in between pushing out our choice ( like every one else).

I am more than happy This draft is an absolute beauty fir the style of run  and carry wingers and smart outside types and Small skilled options rather than KPF or KPD or rucks types.

To be honest I would and most Demon  people will go with The current picks or an upgraded version fir JT and JM to continue on from  last years Bounty.

3 more youngsters with fresh legs and bodies up replace some of our tired 2018 heroes sounds just the antedote   for  all to start 2021 on track.

In any case we dont often know till 1/2 years on or even later in careers.

Let the draft begin.

We have 4 picks of value this year and limited list spots. It would be dumb if we take 3 players and pass at #50 (particularly after we did multiple pick swaps to obtain it). Either we are looking to take four players or we need to slide up or into the future to keep our currency.

Tony mu understanding is we will keep a pick for the Pre season draft or the mid season if there is one so as Cal Twomey says we may use only 3 on draft night.

Your comment has no relevance either way as it is our choice to use the very good picks any way that JM has given us.
 
Let's hope we welcome 3 newcomers like last year with big futures in the Red and Blue who can assist in making our list more complete.

If Sydney's second NGA pick (expected bit in the 20s) hasn't been bid on by the time our 18/19 come up, don't be surprised if one of those selections plus 33 and 50 go to the Swans for a combo featuring their 2021 first rounder in live trading on the night.

Gets them a draft pick ahead of their points burning as well as the later points to burn, and gets us realistically well inside the first round of 2021. And we get to make the decision after we have picked our favourite of the options at 18.

Sydney would be loving it; pick 3, then top ten level NGA pick, then pick 19, then early second round NGA pick. Working the system twice in one draft because we'll be holding that 19 safely for them until after the first points burn is done.

It's hard to figure out exactly but I think that means all our pick trading, aside from some practical positioning, would bring a net result of turning our 2021 first rounder into Sydney 2021 first rounder, plus loose change, without actually giving anything up.

We do have 28 though. But since that hypothetical is giving Sydney a free hit at another first rounder + their next academy pick on the cheap, I wouldn't be including 28 in the deal anyway. 19 + 50 for next years first + something else coming back our way could be good for both parties.

The phantom drafts have Sydney's kids going at 6 and 22. They will be short on points by 376 points (equivalent of pick 43) if this occurs.  (I reckon the first kid will slide like Green did last year). If they go into deficit their first pick next year will be pushed back. They will desperate for this not to happen. 

However, Sydney's first pick next year a good one. Potentially top 5 again. There is no way they trading out of the first round for around pick 22-25 this year.

They will be much more likely to trade a future 2nd or 3rd round pick for an extra pick around 43 to make up the 300 odd points.

They will finish up with 3 excellent kids and keep their excellent pick for next year.

You can have as many picks as you have available list spots.

If a team delisted 20 players they would have 20 rounds of picks.

Its a common misconception as the phantom drafts and AFL website often only bother going up to the third round. Also, there is a rule that you must use 3 picks in the draft. Not sure if that rule still applies these days.

For this draft only (and in classic AFL HQ 'on-the-run why would we let anyone know in advance hey why not announce it after trade period that'll be fun' style) teams can select fewer than three players if there are circumstances such as, um, being Gold Coast or similar enough to Gold Coast that it would be too obvious if they excluded you.

I believe there is also an extension to how many late picks you can horde for points burning - previously you could only cash in as many picks as you actually could have taken in the draft.

Also worth noting is that if Sydney can't cover their priority selections with points from this draft, that carry-over cost will move their first selection backwards in the 2021 draft. Just to illustrate - by the points system, pick 28 is about the same as going from pick 5 to pick 13.  If their first academy pick goes well inside the top 10 as expected, that will burn both their picks in the 30s and they definitely won't have the spares to cover the second bid.  So, realistically, either Sydney trade for more burner picks this draft or their top pick in 2021 will actually be multiple places earlier in the draft IF it is held by someone other than Sydney!  The other time would get, say, 7, but Sydney would only be giving up 11!

Personally, I'd be okay with us giving up 19 and 28 this year for 'hypothetically 7ish' next year.  I also think Sydney would see giving up what would otherwise be 'hypothetically 11ish' next year for pick 18 this year and the burner points to stop their second 2021 pick from being crippled.

The trade would work out as;

We give up 19 and 28 (2020) and get 7~ (2021).

They give up 11~ (2021) and get 19 (2020) and effectively 'advance' their 2021 second round pick from 40~ to 24~

Bureaucracy is magnificent.

 Fully agree on what you are saying, but I cannot see Sydney giving up thier 2021 first rounder.

I've done the rough maths and they only need to cover around 376 points. They are much more likely to offer their future 2nd as a trade to a club and get burner picks back in exchange.

This would still be a great deal for the club giving up late picks.

Mahoney has come out publicly and said we might be moving up the draft.

I found it strange that he would say this and think that there is a potential plan in place already depending on how the draft plays out.

Personally, I think our plan was to bundle 19, 28 and 50 up to move up the draft. It's about 1800 points or the equivalent of pick 6 (we would have to pay overs so would likely get pick 10-14). I cannot figure out who would need points bad enough to do it though.

    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

    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.

    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 Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football.

    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

    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

    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
