every incentive for gc17. gw$, and the swans, who retain their 'rights' to players

the concessions given to gc17 are a joke

Wrong.  Jokes are humorous.

From Scouting Notes: 2022 AFL U18s – South Australia vs. Vic Country

#13 Finn Emile-Brennan (Dandenong Stingrays)
7/05/2004 | 181cm | 62kg | Defender

“The Melbourne Next-Generation Academy member certainly has some eye-catching traits, and showcased all of them in a promising representative outing. Operating in his usual role off half-back, Emile-Brennan was aggressive with his rebound run and kicking, displaying great athleticism to break the lines and surge Country forward. He was shifted up to the wing in term four, with his punchy ball use a feature among 19 touches.”

Under the Radar: AFL Draft prospects on the precipice

“Finn Emile-Brennan (Dandenong Stingrays/Vic Country)
7/05/2004 | 181cm | 62kg | Defender
What he does well:
A silky smooth and skilful rebound defender, Emile-Brennan is the first and only club-tied talent on this list. The Melbourne Next Generation Academy (NGA) member will make the Demons sweat, given he could well be considered a top 40 talent, making him unavailable via bidding rules. He can play above his 181cm listing, but looks most potent when surging the ball out of defensive 50 and utilising his booming boot in transition.
The knock:
While certainly capable of impacting in an aerial sense with his notable athleticism, size works against Emile-Brennan in another sense. He is still quite lean at 62kg and, suffice to say, has some filling out to do. He may well remain that skinner defender, akin to the likes of Kade Simpson, but could encounter some difficulties against bigger bodies at senior level. Sustaining his impact throughout games is another area the young gun can work on.”

Lucky he isn't a skinner ruckman or he would go top 5!

Thanks WJ. It’s a good summation of FEB.  I think he’s got AFL qualities no doubt, and probably going to be draft range around the 40-50 mark. Love to see us get him as we can let him develop over his initial 2 years with plenty of gym work and in the Casey program.
Not too sure Clarke and Binns are under the radar as they have shown brightly in the U18s championships.  Both would be excellent in red and blue.

Not considered in the top 40. We should be able to claim him with a later pick. It would be great to have an elite kick in our squad.

Wait a minute, the qualifying factor to make our Academy is that your mum has to come from Mauritius?

No wonder we don’t seem to have many coming through.

I'm not sure if this is serious or a joke, but the qualifying factor is players born in certain regions (parts of NT and South East Melbourne) of either Indigenous backgrounds, who were born overseas or having parent(s) who were born overseas.

The reason it's such a farce is because you can be born in an African refugee camp, moved to Australia not knowing anything about Aussie Rules (or anything about Australia for that matter) or you can be born to Australian parents with strong football backgrounds who were temporarily living overseas and be equally eligible.

To exclude kids born o/s when their parents were temporarily there I don't know why they don't make the o/s criteria that you or one of your parents have to have also grown up speaking a language other than English. Might get a few dodgy claims but it's not like the system is fair at the moment...

Will be on show in the NAB League Grand Final on Friday evening.

Fantastic to hear! Let's hope he plays well but not too well.

We don't want another Mac Andrew situation to arise with another NGA player for the Demons. I still feel we were definitely cheated by the AFL in what happened there! 🤬

Finn played well in a badly beaten up side last night in the NAB League GF. His stats were 14 kicks, 3 handballs which was one disposal less than the best for the Stingrays (Jaxon Binns) and strangely enough, the most kicks. He disposes of the ball very nicely and could do with a couple of pre seasons at AFL level, possibly as a rookie.

Yes likely as a rookie. He has good foot skills which would improve our team and transition.  I agree he’s in need of 2-3 years in the gym.

    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
