Farewell Pick 27



Recommended Posts

Who gives a rats about points. You do the deals to get the players and picks you want. 

27 gets us the second best ruck in the game. Fantastic deal coupled with the Pies paying some wages and him taking a pay cut

Not necessarily.  With 3 F/S and 1 Academy player in the top 20 a lot of mid range bids will be chewed up by matching bids. 

So a pick in the low 50's will come in to something in the low 40's.

Not to be sneezed at.

We have a pick for Bedford coming somewhere and we have the other pick in the 50’s. When the draft only goes 45 players deep we’ll be picking the same players.

The only cost is the opportunity cost to move up for one or the teams moving back.

Grundy for pick 27 would be a steal.

Much better then the original discussion of having to give up a 1st rounder which I was highly against. 

Wonder if we'll package up a future 2nd also? 

Agree. You had people saying that we should give up a pick in the teens because that's what Grundy is worth.

I’m on the record as predicting the Gawn/Grundy combo won’t work (mainly because of Max being an ineffective forward), but if we can get Grundy for 600k and essentially pick 27 then I’m willing to take the risk. That’s a bargain. 
 

Also remember that pick 27 will blow out to about 32 once all the academy, next Gen and FS get bids. 

I think Max might return to his floating behind the ball role after the center bounce, with Grundy playing the forward half of the game kinda like what Geelong did in the grand final with Stanley and Blizcavs. 

This will also double our options kicking out of defensive with two tall targets to stretch across the ground instead of always going long to the left to Gawn.

The MFC has Chandler to Upgrade and Grundy to add to the main list, if they get good picks for Jackson, maybe losing Hunt, Bedford and Jackson along with the delist of Rosman there is only 2 spots left so they may not use picks other than 1st round and second round for Bedford therefore we are giving away picks we may not use.

Almost like the points system is junk. 
 

53 - 0 points in this draft

43 - the minimum steak knife to get 33 to 27 

 

You should be ecstatic with this trade given how poor Jason Taylor is with later picks. We've taken them out of his hands.

The pick for Bedford is part of the #27 swap.  As it will become a pick int he 40's its final value is a lot more than the points it currently has. 

Just saying we paid a hefty premium for # 27.

I've forgotten, did the Pies say they wanted a pick inside 25 or 21?

Inside the top 25 is what's been reported, but was also reported they wanted 'one of the first round picks Melbourne would get in the Jackson trade'... So who knows what's accurate atm.

Chandler will be upgraded with our last pick probably #86.

Lamb: “We have been able to do so by bundling three selections, including two that we did not intend to use at the National Draft this year."

That is a lop sided trade.  We give up picks worth about 1,200 points for one worth about 700 points.

I would have thought whoever is getting pick 27 would do better with the picks we swaped

Odd.

It all depends on how many picks we want to take to the actual draft though. Assuming we receive at least 1 pick in the first round this year (may be multiple if Freo can't get a top 10 pick for us) and factoring in the Bedford pick from GWS plus the Hunt compo, had we kept those 3 picks we just traded to Port that's 6 picks plus Grundy to come in. And assuming we're still looking to bring in more players via FA or trade there's only so many list spots to go round. So really it was trading away picks we were unlikely to use to get a pick for Grundy and knowing we'll be getting a couple more picks in the 30s and a decent first. 

So yes it's a good trade for Port but not really a big loss for the Dees once you consider all the comings and goings.

I hope that means that we may have another target, and not re-signing Baker.

We are happy to lose on points because points are only valuable for those with academy or father son picks. We are aiming at neither.

Don’t worry I am. But the good news is I’m still upset with Lamb keep his Cutlets rather than turning the list over.

It also means we are an easy team to deal with. 

Can been seen two ways.

If close to what is the going rate for what we want or give, then we sign, or a teams can play hard against us and we will fold.

Hope it works as the former, where others don't see us as time and effort wasters,  and we all exit happy, with win win.

Many other teams, stuff up the dominoes falling well.

Deal with the MFC and everyone's dreams can come true.

This hasn't been the process for a few years now. If you want to upgrade a player from the rookie list you just have to have an open list spot.

Therefore, the pick doesn't actually get used.

I reckon it's too early to say. Let's see what happens with that pick.

I wonder if pies will end up accepting 27. A poster recently put up Bedford and 33 for pick 21, maybe Giants won’t take that,  and now it’s 27 + Bedford for 21?

Hopefully pick 27 will do for Collingwood, and we can play around with whatever we get for Toby toward something else.

    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.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
