Seems to have footy ‘smarts’, a strong work ethic, good agility for a tall kid, good hands and a long kick.  Very happy if we can work our way up the draft and nab him.

Moves real well, cant wait for the 194cm debate......

Oh, he's 194cm? Will never be a player. No thanks. Admins, please close the thread now.

Best key forward in the upcoming draft. We’ll need to get a top 5 pick to have a chance at drafting him.

Also believe there’s already a thread about him?

It’s reach that matters, height is irrelevant.

Measure out 6cm it really isn’t that much. If he has a leap and good reach it will neutralise them deficit. Plus he may grow another few cms in the next year or two.

Can he crash a pack though ?

Apparently we are looking at this kid very closely 

 

Aaron seems to have a good :"footy brain" - sees options , shares the ball, tackles fiercely - but those misshapen goals at KittyLitter Park seem evasive 🤯

For comparison, here is a really interesting video on Charlie Curnow from his draft year.

He talks about not really knowing where his best position was, but he says forward, mid or back.

At that stage, he was 191cm (I think he's 192cm now), but it's his explosiveness that makes him such a threat and provides him with that x factor.

Interestingly, he compares himself at that stage to Jake Stringer.

Cadman does seem more like the smooth moving half forward type, but perhaps JVR can be that more explosive competitor at 192cm.

Be interesting to see who gets Cadman and I'd love to be a fly on the wall amongst Melbourne recruiters this year.

If Jacko wants to go to Fremantle, I'd be asking their trading guy for a suitably high pick.

If he refuses, we could then respond with "Don't be a cad, man".

Of course, that risks being banned from the draft under the Appalling Dad Joke rule.

Luckily, he has grown. He said on the Road to the Draft podcast he is now over 196cm.

Highlights from the last Championship game for those that are interested in the key forward. If I'm North Melbourne I'm not passing him up considering the amount of mids they've invested in recently.

Just confirming - in the last ten minutes he won the game for Vic Country with a goal weaving through a pack followed by a goal from a strong leading mark?

Noice.

I don’t think Norf need a KPF but could understand them taking him. They need more half backs and outside midfielders. They already have Larkey and Zurhar which are good forwards. I think they will also need a ruck as Coleman Jones is a bit meh.

What’s he like in pack mark / contested marking situations? Of the three highlights packages most of his marks are on the lead and he’s out in space. When going for a contested mark he only really took the one and that was juggled. 
Long range kicking for goal reasonably accurate with the odd shank. 
Keeps his feet in the contest.

    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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
