Perhaps we should go with what has worked best in the past and pick someone called Christian.

Does that mean we use the pick on the Pope but with his age demographics probably wants to go to Geelong anyway?

Would love Sinn if he makes it down there. I still think that Wilmot is the guy we take unless someone drops. Wilmot is a Taylor and Goodwin player through and through

Agreed.  Unlikely options (unlikely to be available) are Andrew, Sinn, Sonsie or Goater. 

Likely available options possibly are JVR, Chesser, Roberts or Wilmot.

Knevitt seems like a Goodwin type

There's extended footage of Goater where he looks a bit like a Sam Frost midfield equivalent

Not sure if he slips down to pick number #17 in the 2021 AFL National Draft but I am definitely keen on the Demons grabbing Josh Sinn from the Sandringham Dragons.

 

Here is a news story about him: https://www.afl.com.au/news/574499/no1-draft-pick-contender-josh-sinn-piles-on-13kg-in-six-months

 

13 kg in six months - sounds like me in lockdown 🤭

There's probably a joke about Christians and Sinn to be made, but it's not as if I'm the type to do that.

As I recall there was a Cardinal Sinn in the Phillipines a while ago

Indeed, the Cardinal of Manila was Cardinal Sin. I still remember that at the same time there was another public figure in the Philippines by the name of Miss Concepcion.

Chesser's teamate in blake howes likes good too ,  190 cm forward / wing , my first thought after seeing his highlights was he moves a little like fritta .

I think we could do with another med forward especially with Melksham at the end of his career 

Sorry not sure how to post his highlights

I'd be happy with whoever we go with. Taylor has a track record you can trust. If your looking for depth in positions we need a ruck, key forward, midfielder and back pocket player.

One side advantage of holding a pick inside 20 is it slightly increases the chance of Andrew falling out to 21. (We won't get him otherwise.)

As a hypothetical, what happens if we use 17, then Mac is available at 21? Do we have the points to match or will we need to make a bunch of draft-day pick swaps to make it work?

We may be able to game the system if Mac is still available at 17, which will be 19. Bid on Fahey so GWS match, then we have pick 20. Select who we want then Mac can be bid matched. Very unlikely he is not gone by then though.

I don’t think that’s a likely scenario because by 19 GWS doesn’t have any picks left to go before 20 anyway. There’s also a chance that GWS won’t match themselves.

Think we’ll be close or be able to swap a future fourth rounder to make it work. It will also depend on where Woewodin goes. I don’t think it matters that much if we get pushed back a pick or two next year anyway given we have already traded out of the first round.

From those highlights: fantastic overhead, good agility, skills a bit suspect.

Agree. It's bloody tough to judge with such limited footage though. Even some of the more highly touted picks have only solid highlight tapes given the lack of games.

I think we will likely go for one the rated talls KPP's if we see some slippage at 17.

Would not be surprised to see us package up our 30's and 40's pick to move higher if there is slippage for a player we want.

Given the number of available list spots i would not be surprised to see another delisted player picked up for depth.

I'm still keen on Josh Sinn with pick #17 in the 2021 AFL National Draft.

Here is his highlights package shown below.

 

However, until it is closer to the Draft at the end of November I really won't know who we will look to pick.

Either way, I have faith in Jason Taylor finding another gem for the Demons.

    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
