Yeah seems a bit weird that one. Personally I think he would improve our best 22 as another link up player with good kicking skills and outside run, which we lack.

Definitely think he'd help on paper. As long as we got his mind right the rest would follow, I started as a harder no but slightly more open if the deal is right.

If he picks Freo, they need to trade Lobb to get the pick.  You would be picking Freo, they are building a got list

Doubt they’d need much currency to get in omeara in a fire sale. He will be 29 when the season starts

I think Dazzle mentioned this earlier in the thread. Hawthorn are positioning themselves for early picks next year, but are going down the path we did, which was a disaster, where we shed all our experienced players. You can't expect a bunch of kids to lead the way immediately. You need some experience. If Mitchell and O'Meara go, they're in big trouble I reckon, on top of Gunston already out the door, and the spectre of the racism affair hanging over the club.

Yes, it should lead to further disaster and one can only hope.

I think they are showing him as damaged goods that needs a change in scenery but with 2 years left and his mental health issues are doing it delicately. Aside from Haw and ESS most clubs are run well.

Yes, I compared them to the 2013 of Melbourne when we just gave away all our senior players.

If O'Meara and Mitchell leave then I have them for the wooden spoon.

Mitchell putting his stamp in the club

Interesting isn't it. As Dees supporters who have lived through it (the kicking out of experience for youth) it will be interesting to see what happens at the Hawks.

I would love them to stay down the bottom for a a long time but they always find a way to rise again.

North called. They want their spoon back.

I think the Hawks will pry from their clammy grip to be honest.

Ignoring the Clarko mess for a second - North are well ahead of the Hawks as they have already bottomed out, have the talent in the squad with high draft picks this year straight into the system.

The Hawks are still 12 months from bottoming out to access that talent.  They won't start rising up until 2025 imo.

They'll be VFL level like in 2023 & 2024 and my god it will be beautiful to watch!!

Would like to see us have a crack at Henry now, pick 13 would do it..just what we need in the forward line someone with good hand.

He is wanting to leave to play with his brother at Geelong - don't think he is what we need anyway

It’s a disaster if you get it wrong. It’s the blueprint for premiership success if you get it right. 
 

Every flag from the Swans 05 until Geelong 22 was won on the back of elite talent drafted with top picks.
 

They’ll be cutting it thin on field but clearly there’s some faith in Newcombe, Worpel, Ward and Amon to carry the midfield. Mitchell’s already shown a belief in the likes of Moore, Nash, Impey, Day to run through the midfield too, he’s not burdened by a belief you need to dominate clearances to play good football with a rebuilding side.

Off field is the bigger danger but the soft cap is coming back up, Box Hill is always solid and they must have faith Sam and the few senior players they’ll have left can handle the load.

I thought the draft and the order, was about equalising the talent across the competition. I want closer games not blow outs.

Destination clubs are effecting the balance.

Management,  of the club lists and player renumeration need to be done better, so as to get fair compensation and teams high on the ladder shouldn't get a leg up.

The clubs down the ladder may stay there for several season if the AFL allows the "poaching" of picks and players.

Geelong have to be happy, as are us.

North, Gold coast, wow!

The AFL has umpires for that Kev

Agreed, but I think we'll see them struggle for a few years now. We can only hope.

I would love to pummel them for the next few years like they did to us.

So we don't need a strong marking forward did you watch any games last year?

Yes, we do - but none of that is relevant when he has stated clearly, he wants to go to Geelong if he is going anywhere

And yes, I do watch lots of games and many Collingwood games actually

    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
