WELCOME TO DEMONLAND: DANIEL TURNER

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?

 

Dreaming.......

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.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
