I think the exciting thing with this pick, is we have taken a player who has a number of attributes, who might be able to be developed into a very good player. We can then live in hope we have got a v

He will wear the number 43.5 then

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!

Article from a coupe of weeks ago

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

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    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

    A- Alice Springs. Happy hunting ground.     B- Backline. Finally found the non-leaking version.   C- Cairns & Covid. How a season was ruined.    D- Demonland. Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    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
