  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


2023 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch



Recommended Posts

Just watched the "Gettable" podcast.

In terms of the Dees 1st pick, Cal said we would wait to see who was left out of:

Curtin / Sanders / Watson.

He also said we would have an eye on Caddy (as he is a forward) and Windsor (who he described as the "flyer").

Also, Cal thought pick 1 would be traded to North. This would mean WC would be taking Curtin, which would leave us with Sanders or Watson. That would be a great result at our first pick, and I would expect it to be Sanders.

No Leake?

In all I’ve taken in (mostly from Cal Twomey and the like) we seem to be sitting in the bottom of the first two batches. 
top 6 of Reid duursma and mcKercher, curtin watson and sanders 

then next grouping is caddy Leake o Sullivan Windsor and Wilson. 
 

If all is out of our control and we walk away with Sanders and Wilson then we’ve done alright. Nothing wrong with either pick and both should work out fine. But to me it just feels too vanilla (off topic:very underrated flavour) 

I just have the feeling sanders isn’t a good Melbourne fit and will get the James Jordan treatment of waiting for something to go wrong with our all star centre square squad, none of which are close to finished. 
 

If there isn’t a slider presented to us then personally I’d prefer Leake or O Sullivan at 6. Might be a stretch but I see both as better needs picks and would rather choose for list balance than for top end talent.

Feel like there ain’t no Bailey Humphrey at pick 6 in this draft unfortunately

Adelaide are the club showing most interest to Darcy Wilson and could grab him at pick 10.

It's quite amazing how much 'filler' time they do with that gettable show.

Non-stop talking all year round....

Yeah it’s good this time of year though. Best source of accurate information about the draft.

On the draft night when it comes to our pick 11, can we swap it for someone elses future pick. And could we for instance at our turn, swap our pick 11 plus our future 1st or 2nd to say Hawthorn for their future 1st?

Im not asking is it good value, I merely want to know if it is allowed.

Yep, providing all of that happens before the earliest current selection being utilised has been utilised.

6 & 11, for me , like to see any two of Curtin, Sanders, Leake, O’Sullivan, (Darcy) Wilson, Windsor or Murphy.  

I’m swaying towards Schoenmacher as pick 11 if we take a mid with pick 6 and O’Sullivan is off the board. 
194 not considered KPD but looks to me like one who has some brutality about how he goes about it and love that left foot

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
