Where’s the incentive to develop young players if other clubs gain from the fruits of our labour? 

Because the AFL and it's competing clubs need to do way more to support junior football, and not just at the higher levels.

It is too easy to cop out and use the pandemic as an excuse, but participation is down, standard of play is down, volunteer numbers are down, and interest in the game from juniors is down. The AFL and the clubs need to give more back.

Yeah agreed. Not sure why there should be any scaling for father son and academies?

You already have access to them, why also get it at a reduced cost than others would pay. Doesn't make sense.

Well said Action Jackson.

I think that was third eye's point.  Incentive to promote development.  Why bother if all the hard work goes elsewhere?

Alan Jarrott, a competitive and nuggety type who played 91 games for Melbourne in the 80s after crossing from North Melbourne, was from Moyhu. 

The only other VFL/AFL recruit to hail from there was Hawthorn's John Hendrie, a forward who played in two premierships and who was more than a decent player.

Yep our NGAs may get picked and we can also pick Academy players of other teams if we want them and they are available at our pick

PMBangers from https://central.rookieme.com/ answers a question about Finn on a draft thread from bigfooty.

 
PMBangers I’m liking what I see with Emile-Brennan at Dandy. I’ve seen him play a couple of times now, again yesterday and IMO he will be exciting clubs with his run off HB. I know it’s early but I can see him becom a rnd 1 selection. What are your thoughts?
Yeah he really caught my eye in Round 1 vs Eastern, I've made the Wanganeen-Milera comparison with his movement and kicking at short to medium distances, uses it really well by hand and is surprisingly comfortable with contact for a slim frame, in comparison to some of the other medium defender options in the draft frame he's looking pretty high up, especially if he can keep improving each week. I could see him going first round if he gets an opportunity in the midfield, but currently I think a guy like Conrad Williams provides a similar skill set and he's more proven over time.

I'm from Moyhu.....unfortunately my footy credentials don't quite stack up against those  two! :)

The mighty Hoppers.

Yes Dazzle-got done by Greta last Saturday though. I occasionally do my morning exercise on the oval-for some reason early morning its always wet that time of day-guaranteed wet socks and feet! :)  I'm a couple of klm's north of Moyhu but can see the lights on during training and can hear the boys calling for the ball. :)

Not being able to pick a player inside the top 40 is one of the more ridiculous drafting rules they brought in.

I can kind of understand the top 20 to an extent, but there is just no incentive to put any time or effort into the players if you lose access to them.

personally i think the father/son and all academies priority picks should be changed

make all the club for academies be more responsible for development activities (monitored and measured)

scrap all point discounts (getting priority is enough of an incentive)

all clubs to get priority (f/s or academy) but at the full points value bid (i.e. no discounts)

limit the number of priority picks in any year to 1

maybe not allow for future points to be used for priority picks (not sure on this one) or set a maximum future points limit

Personally,  I like the traditional of the father/son rule, but I think the academies should be abolished in as far as they currently exist.  Somewhat annoys me that we miss out on getting our cream, when others like the Bulldogs and Sydney have had their lick of the ice cream (and Sydney is still at the Ice cream shop lining up for more).  However, if it's not regulated and moderated, I could easily see this going back to be like the old 80s zone system, where those with the most productive zones consistently get the best players, or a higher proportion of them.

For the benifit of the game overall, I think it would be much better if the league/clubs put more money into developing elitle talents at TAC clubs etc and through providing more development and administration support at local grass roots weekend footy (excluding the private school boy stuff that is already generally funded and resourced to the hilt).  Could employ a bunch more of the ex/retired AFL level footballers and assist them to transition to life after football and still utilise and leverage their elite skills and professional sporting background to teach these same skills and ethos to the lower levels and next gen of up and commers.

Still going strong according to the latest Rookie Me Central scouting notes - 

#13 Finn Emile-Brennan

The classy defender was able to produce some outstanding dash and drive out of defence, with a long booming kick. Though he made the odd rare mistake, when his kicking was on-point, it was deadly, and he was able to run hard in transition, showing clean hands and neat overall skills. Emile-Brennan’s best kick came in the second term when he was coming out of defence and managed to nail a long-range kick under pressure. He also showed strong evasion to avoid opponents at a stoppage, and always kept involved on his way to the second most disposals for his side.

Finn Emile-Brennan has been called up to the Vic Country team to play the AFL Vic Young Guns next weekend.

All eyes on the target - a report would help after this match.

    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
