Gee, he even moves a bit like Lever from that footage.

No way Maynard is worth a first. A second should get it done if there's genuine interest.

Pick 36?

192cm, 79kg and ummm, 192cm

A great kid who's been playing for the bushies and Albury Tigers alongside our very own Daniel Cross and Jeff Garlett. An intercept defender who reads the play extremely well. The fact he's playe

Each to their own, but I don't think we'll be stupid enough to trade a first rounder for a B grade half back. 

I like Maynard, he's a nice player, but you don't give up a first rounder for a player of his type.

He'll need to be to come into a new zonal defence and learn how we want to play. I've thought this is the toughest thing about bringing in someone mid season. How do they adjust to the system the team is playing? Will be fascinating to see how he goes at Casey.

Thanks as always for the insights mate.

I hope the club hope neither of these will be needed in 2021.  Brought in as insurance / back up.

Yes, but why bring in a 19 year old... He will be on the list - barring unacceptable behaviour/standards - in 2022.

Looking at Daniel 's highlights There's no doubt he looks like Jeremy McGovern clone,

His delightfully casual but so cool and composed marking plus peeling off with an elite disposal without any delay have got Gov written all over him.

I loved Harrison Perry's highlights from Draft Day 1 and have had to be patient up to now for Harry to get his chance. He has improved with every game so far and looks every bit as good as I hoped Have earmarked  Petty as a KPD since then. 

Daniel Turner looks  like another quick learner and even the  slightly overweight bit is Jeremy Gov to a tee. Looks a natural and if I was Marty Hore my chsnce is well under threat. 
Also  he is 194cm now taller than listed apparently. Plays and marks tall  looking at the highlights. 

Welcome to our new Defender to join our elite group already developing . 

Will also allow Declase to play mid /wing maybe  or up forward as a pinch hitter.

Lot to like about these 2 selections and JT May have nailed another 2 gems from his kitbag. 

Won't die wondering I dont think.

If that music is the soundtrack to his game, then the opposition are in deep [censored].

All jokes aside, he looks like he has the Jeremy mcgovern chesty build

Maybe JT judged that he wouldn't make it through until our turn, and thought he should snap him up when we could.

The big men always take longer to develop, Gawny is the best example and look at him now!

Maybe Carlton could have benefitted from your insight before the last trade period?

The cost should be similar to Hibberd, Melk, Langdon...as you say a 2nd rounder, or commensurate trade.

They always paid overs...and for 2 of them.

This and we get him now, we don't need to use a Draft pick on him in November, he gets 6 months developing with the best defensive unit in the AFL.  

I like the balance of the picks, a mature player that might push for selection and a young player that can be developed.  One eye on the now and one on the future.

We've needed to get a young key defender on our list to develop, so this pick made a lot of sense. Sounds like someone who reads the play well and makes good decisions, which is exactly what we want in a player who will be part of a defensive unit.

Agree monoccular Strategic we now have our medium- tall backs covered in case Petty or one of the pillars get injured, it is going to be a long campaign.

How's he going to survive if he's not good enough to play at VFL,  SANFL, or WAFL level?

The VFL is for development. If they are up to scratch and develop well they progress, if not they drop off our list and most likely go back to playing a lesser standard post football.

Ovens and Murray league wouldn't be that far behind these competitions.  For a 19 yo to hold his own in that league he will be able to hold his own at VFL level.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
