Harry Sheezel really can play. I’ve watched him grow as a player and a person since he started 10 years ago in the AJAX Under 8s and he’s going places. Hard to see him landing at the Demons but he would be a great fit by every metric.

Rare air: The top-10 draft hopeful with MASSIVE numbers

 

Trac 2.0? If LJ leaves, might not be out of the equation

He is a gun but unless we find a way to trade up to a pick in the top 3, then he will not be available.  I have an inkling once we receive the Jackson picks that we will have a crack at getting WC’s pick 2.  Just an opinion.

Seems to be the year where that actually may be possible.

We would have to trade into the top 5 picks to have any chance of him or Cadman.

Not sure how we will get that done, given Ashcroft will go 1 to Brisbane we will have to essentially get a top 4 pick off North, West Coast, GWS or Essendon.

If we get pick 8 from Freo if they get it from Port, we will then have to talk one of these sides into swapping down. West Coast may be open to it given Jedd Busslinger from WA is expected to go around that pick, but they still need high quality midfielders so may not be willing to.

I agree, find it tough to see either of those two falling out of the top 5 although quirky stuff can happen on the day. Would definitely help to snare something in the top 10 that could be used to get a trade up but who knows at this stage.

A stack of class, but doesn't seem a very dynamic athlete. Is he going to be a consistent goal kicker without speed, a leap or size? Probably has to be a midfielder to get maximum value. A little big Jack Billings ish for mine. If he falls to us I'd be very happy to have him but I'm not sure we'd be desperately trading up to get him.

You sell him a mile short and in comparing him Billings you're neglecting the number one attribute that separates them. Competitiveness. 

Sheezel carries enormous intensity and energy around the contest which makes up for any lack of speed. Billings' biggest knock is that he lacks that fierce intensity around the ball which is why he is a vanilla player. 

The reason he'd fit so well for us is that he ticks the competitive box first and foremost which is what we look for in every player that we bring in. 

But he compliments us because his ball use, composure and ability to hit the scoreboard is absolutely elite. He is the perfect link up player and will be a huge upgrade on our half forward line once he builds his tank.

Interesting thought that (if we got him + if he meets projections) we could end up with three forwards who are each the best of their different types (Fritsch, Pickett & Sheezel) but none of them would be the classic tall forward.

We'd be in sore need of our own Cameron Mooney!

Fair, and for the record I think he’ll have a lot better career than Billings. (Billings would’ve had a lot better career anywhere but St Kilda too).

Sam Flanders is not nearly as classy but was a gun junior forward/mid with competitiveness, kicked 19 goals as a bottom ager, hasn’t got going at afl level at all yet.

It’s just really hard to beat afl defenders purely on smarts. It’s easier if you have genuine speed or the ability to really jump at the ball. Not to mention how important that athleticism is defensively. And unless footy changed drastically half forwards are going to be the first line of defending. 

I might be wrong and he might be the next Robbie Gray, but I think Gray had more burst in his earlier years. 

I’d absolutely love to have him using it inside 50, just not convinced to the extent that I’d be packaging all the LJ compo and then some to get in to the top 5 to get him.

I'm still in the Cadman boat. But jesus if Sheezel was still available at our pick I'd be stoked.

Reminds me a lot of Steve Johnson/Alan Didak.

i see him more in the greene mold, can go up the ground and impact and also is super crafty around goals. or like a rozee

Bit surprised he isn't been talked up as a genuine number 2 pick.

Reckon he's an absolute star in the making.

    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.
