The fact that they're refusing to give up pick 2 means that they have no effect when it comes to negotiations. 

Expect the deal to go through today for 13, F1, F2 (freo) --> Jackson, F3 (essendon)

Yes I agree. 

probably be pick 13, F1, F2 (freo) for Jackson, F3 (essendon).
 

needed for a top 6-7 pick at very least as well as Freo future 1st  … dockers were poor in not trading up 

But imv I think we’re getting screwed for a Ruck/mid/fwd, 21yo, Generational player, rising star winner and premiership player.

We're not moving Weid FOR the jackson deal. We're just moving him because he wants to move and we dont want him, 

Exactly. That's what I believe. Some on here are claiming Weideman is tied to Jackson.

I would hope that at least that F2 is the North one.

Beat me to it haha.

You're a year older than me and therefore like me, a Gen Y. Treating one group of people as a monolith hasn't been that helpful in the recent past and it amounts to nothing more than patronising, needless culture wars.

I'd say (as a Gen-Xer) the term "Ok Boomer" is a tad 'monolithic' too. 

And as crudely it was originally put by the OP, there is a genuine increase in anxiety/depression and a host of other neurological maladies in the younger population these days, which is a legitimate (and unfortunate) factor in the discussion of young player's mindsets.

I think the Weid pick may be, as we might need the Bedford pick to add to/combine with 27, to trade for Grundy

The pick will be. But it's not like we're trading him just so that we can facilitate the Jackson deal like some have implied

Based on what? A vibe?

Freo are looking a cert for finals next year, and this future first of theirs has not exactly gotten me all that excited.

They have a similar game plan to us which teams had worked out by the end of the year. Very stodgy ball movement, forward half more dysfunctional than us

They lose Mundy and a number of other players, they’ll have a harder draw

Longmuir is a good coach. He may well tweak the game plan and improve them again. They’re every chance to play finals but I just have my doubts and won’t be surprised if they miss out

Our firm takes on graduates fresh out of uni every year. Maybe it's our recruitment processes, I don't know, but they are as hard working and switched on as previous cohorts. Definitely not snowflakes as they are sometimes portrayed to be. I'm in finance so might be different in other sectors

The increases in anxiety could just be a consequence of greater acceptance in society of mental health as opposed to an actual increase. Having said that I can't see how social media and the pile on culture could be anything other than detrimental to people's mental health

Me too.

Every year, at least 2 teams slip out of the Final 8, sometimes 3.  The av is 2.7.

Lets say its 2 teams fall out.  I reckon Freo are in the frame to be one of them. Maybe Dogs too.  Blues and Power to come in.

The rest Tiges, Lions Dees, cats, swans, Pies (maybe),  keep their spots.

Freo's picks may well be attractive.

Is it an increase in anxiety/depression or is it a better ability to diagnose conditions and seek help for them without being socially shunned? Edit. @BDA nails it above.

There is definitely the element of increased diagnoses pumping up the numbers. 

But thanks to the Information Age, we now get served up news about climate change, potential nuclear war, increasing wealth divides and widespread corruption with our breakfasts. 

Then throw in social media and the various elements of that which all add up to “you’re not doing enough with your life” (or worse), and you’ve got the perfect storm for the mental health epidemic we’re currently witnessing.

Note, I’m not framing this as a “young people are snowflakes” argument. Which is what BDA was addressing to another poster.

In previous years players got slaps on the back and some abuse over the fence. Now there is an avalanche of personal criticism.

 "Your opinion of me is none of business" would help.  But easier said than done.

I agree although I think the 24 hour news cycle and social media is impacting all generations though.

Straw man comment. Not unexpected 

Mundy's spot will be will be hard for Freo to fill adequately, regardless of B&F finish

Fwiw, I too think Freo might drop a little, maybe 8 or 9. Logue, Acres and possibly Lobb are also significant outs.

Time will tell

If they get the coaching right and he develops his midfield craft as quickly as I think he can Jackson should take a lot of Mundy’s midfield minutes. 

Mundy was still getting the ball but he was a defensive liability, Jackson can be a defensive force and an even bigger body. That will allow Brayshaw and Serong to play more attacking roles. They will need one of their young mids to step up though to give cover for when Jackson rucks or is on the bench.

I expect Freo to be excellent defensively again and no worse in attack. There’s a chance it goes either way but they seem rock solid 4-10th on the ladder.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
