Dont be deceived by the kicking action. He actually drops the ball lower and closer to his foot thereby alleviating and minimising margin for error. He wont fudge many at all! I like what he brings, Pace, Agility, Poise, takes a great contested grab and kicks very well! Stay Tuned, some serious X Factor from what I've seen.

Most excited I have seen from you about a recruit but I am with you on this pick.

I just said it was an interesting kicking action, not that he cant kick.

I love this pick for us.  His upside is huge and looks a real excitement machine.  Chocco Williams will be on the case!

Fraser ROSMAN

Clubs: Sandringham Dragons/Vic Metro

Position: Utility

Size: 194cm/84kg

Teams that may suit: Adelaide, Essendon, Melbourne

Bio: Rosman had a number of standout performances in the APS school boys competition for Wesley College last year, sneaky in for two games at the NAB League level with the Dragons. With untapped potential, Rosman could develop into a strong utility in the attacking half of the ground. He makes things happen and can catch the eye with his X-Factor and speed. He isn’t just a one trick pony given his endurance as well, marking overhead well when required. He can play deep as a tall or push up the ground to show off his athletic traits. Recruiters won’t forget some of his work in the pre-season and it was indicated when he earned a national combine invite.

Is it just me or does it seem like Yze might have had some influence on the type of player we were looking for this draft.

Not very Melbourne-like to draft good ball users with speed. Not one inside mid, messiah or ‘athlete’ with potential. Are they signposting a coaching transition?
Anyway, good to see needs being addressed and I look forward to a season where our players either, execute the game plan correctly or the plan is exposed for what it’s worth.

Not so sure about that Demi. The need for outside run and kicking skills has seemed pretty obvious for years. We used our high draft picks to recruit inside bulls while our better flanker types, except for Salem, have been recruited (Melksham, Hibberd, KK, Langdon, etc).

I love the name Rosman. I admit, I spend time searching out players with typical German names. I could name a Demon historical side of  Krauts who have played for the Demons. I'd like to add the name Rosman.Does anyone know of his family's origins? A Wesley boy, therefore cosmopolitan, the name, according to Google,  of Eastern  European Jewish descent. I love the highlights package, I am impressed - a high-marking left-foot wingman, just what this side needs.

Hands look great in his video, and that speed for a fella of his height was quite surprising.

Would love to know what position the footy department has in mind for him. A lighting fast 190+cm wingman, umm, yeah!

 

Welcome to the Dees Rosman family. Hope your boy has a blast at the Dees, and we can all see some success together.

Yep. Taylor seems to have a fascination for slow inside mids or midget small forwards, has bucked that trend this year thank god

In the photo up top Fraser has his polo on inside out?  Hope he doesn't do that with his Match day Guernsey!!!

Probably  overwhelmed a little eh???

The sky is the limit for the Rosman!

I'd be very worried if someone was putting on a polo shirt inside out...

Just mirrored due to being a selfie - someone from the club should have flipped horizontally in photoshop

I wasn't really being serious or sarcastic, but have you actually watched this bloke play against men yet,Paddy McCartin was supposed to be better than Jack Watts,Charlie Curnow was supposed to be the next buddy he might never play again injuries who knows.

Nah, I reckon the recruiters were working to a list of needs earlier than Yze appointment.  Might have added to the conversation, but don’t think he shaped it greatly.

Based on limited vision I think he is the most likely to make it out of all three recruits

I have serious reservations about the other two - just too small 

We already have Pickett , Spargo , Bedford - not convinced we needed another two players of that size. Hope I'm wrong but really question the strategy of trading out of next years 1st round at this stage

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
