If we want Cadman we are going to have to pay overs to get to pick 2 

If Cadman is a great player would probably take 4 years plus till we see him dominating consistently 

we are in our window now, either use all draft picks on a big free agent or draft players that can play afl straight away 

North will take him with pick 1 which becomes 2 after Ashcroft F/S.

GWS are keen on him and are likely to get North's pick 1 by enticing them with pick #3 and #12.  We can't outbid GWS. 

GWS aren't shy about paying for the bid they want:  they used a lot of draft currency to get up the board to draft Green.  Ironically in the end they didn't need to as clubs didn't bid on him at the top end.

...if not, why the hype.

It is because most clubs want that type of forward so 'his perceived value' is being pushed up.  And a fair chunk of 'generational player' type thinking.

A bit like a competitive house auction that becomes a 'must have' even tho there might be others that fit just as well albeit it not the perfect fit ticking all the boxes.

Even if he miraculously lasted to our pick, he’s not going to help our cause in 2023. Even 2024 might be placing too much of a burden on him.

We are ready to go again, we need a KPF who is ready to go now.

We just can’t think like this. You don’t want to spend whatever small amount of capital on the wrong player. Gawn with Grundy fundamentally changes our forward line; I don’t know for better or worse but maybe it means medium talls are better for us in the next 3 years? Maybe we can afford to keep players in our forward line and have them lead at the ball? It’s hard to say but TMac and Brown buy us some time to get this decision right. Because I want to be great for a decade or more - not just next year.

His highlights are pretty average...

That's all I could say.

So all those that think we should get him, who has seen him play?

...if not, why the hype.

 

Have seen him play a few times and think he’s shown enough to justify most of the hype. He’s competitive, very good athletically, has great hands overhead and looks to get involved when the game is on the line.

Dragged GWV over the line in a few tight ones this year. The AFL website’s On Demand section has all of the seasons NAB League games uploaded, would strongly recommend having a watch of the Rebels v Power game in rd 15 in particular if you want to get a feel for his game.

Added bonus of seeing Bailey Humphrey tear it up early (before a head knock finished his day early).

He'd need to be a nice Wayne Carey to justify what we'd have to trade to get him.

At this rate, it’s looking like that. Not sure we can get the deal done. 
 

Our forward line would be set for a decade if we could get it done, but our best bet might be him going to GWS and trying to pinch him back in 2 years!

Yes, I agree. With the caveat that I'm basing my perspective from highlights reels.

Get the ball out of the centre, take one bounce, kick it over the full forward's head and right through the big sticks. Certainly worked for my mids when I played full forward.

Is he the Mac Andrew of this years draft????

Couldn't be further from it. Mac Andrew was a skinny kid drafted on potential with glimpses of magic but ultimately little output.

Cadman is physically developed at 90kgs +, and has great output. Highest goal kicker at the level, high in the marks and contested marks stat, finds a lot of ball when playing as roaming CHF type, dragged his team over the line at times. He warrants a top 5 selection. Andrew did not warrant a first round selection, and his output before and since been drafted has shown that. 

Seems Cadman is beyond our reach now even if we get a top 5 pick. It's a shame as he really is the only person who fills a direct list need in the first round for us IMO. Typical that the only year we're likely to have a high pick, it's a dud draft with nothing we need.

Twomey suggesting Cadman to go somewhere in 1-3 mark. Can see the other posts suggesting the same.

We will struggle to get him and we'd need WC's pick 2 to have a chance. But even then, GWS will probably trade with NMFC to get him. Norf dont really need a number 1, but 2-3 first round picks would do them a great deal of becoming and remaining competitive for a while and thats even without even considering what they could get for JHF.

Would love to land this guy

I suspect would have been gone at #5 if not for Rankine. I have flight risk vibes though. Admittedly an eon ago, but I played against one of them as a junior a few times (an uncle perhaps, I'm not sure), and recall a large and very parochial clan on the sidelines.

Reckon it's a inevitable that GWS will grab #1 from North, so we will miss out on him as GWS will pick him up. Then he will eventually go to Geelong or Richmond. Oh well

So if the Eagles/Port/North/GWS mega trade doesn’t get up (and I think it will) do we go:

West Coast’s Pick 2 for pick 13, Freo’s future 1, Melb’s future 1? Maybe with a late pick back. 3 firsts is serious business.

I reckon we’ll dangle it out there. The biggest issue is North aren’t locked in to pick 1 and could still trade it so we couldn’t do it until the draft (unless we go all the way to 1)

Ashcroft is the standout this year and then there are a whole bunch that are even keel.

Giving up pick 13, Feo's FF and our FF for pick 2 would be ludicrous for that ^ reason as well as the fact that next year's top 10 are considered stronger.

Seemingly Cadman will be off to GWS at pick 1 or 2 (if they bid on Ashcroft, which he deserves to be as the #1 player in the draft by some margin).

I don’t want us to ‘reach’ for a KPF, as we did that with Cook, so it will be interesting to see who we like or if we swap for futures or try and trade in some players

Whoever GWS take will be gone in 3 years anyway. You can only play in front of 4,000 people for so long. 

Yes let’s interview him and let him know we’d love to “keep in touch” wherever he may go … probably GWS which means he’s gettable in 2-3 years time.

    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
