Farewell Pick 27



Recommended Posts

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.

True, a list spot is needed which we have.

But a draft pick needs to be 'used' albeit as high as 6th or 7th round. 

That upgrade 'draft selection' counts as one of the 3 minimum players each club needs to draft.

The Dees have given Port Adelaide picks 33, 43 and 53 in exchange for pick 27.

 

 

 

"We have today been involved in a pick swap that sees us improve our hand in this year's draft," Melbourne list manager Tim Lamb told Melbourne Media.

 

 

 

"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.

 

 

 

"It has always been our philosophy to try and improve our draft hand every year and we're pleased to be able to acquire selection No.27 through this trade."

Trades out - 1200 points  #33,43,53

(equivalent picks total to pick 14) 

Trades in - 700 points #27
 

hmmmm I thought we’d use pics to bundle up points to see what we’d get from the Lions who need points 

Is pick 27 enough for Grundy !!??? I thought Pies wanted a pick inside top 25 at least

I'd be guessing that Brissy will probably swap picks with Gol Coast, who have a heap of picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, as compared to us. I'm sure we probably asked the question of a few clubs and Port must have come back with the best offer.

Strange times.

One can only guess that a whole string of clubs have reached in principle agreements on what they would need, and now it is all being shuffled around, while a whole bunch of points-picks are getting ready to be hurled into the fireplace.

Looks like once again we'll have that weird situation where picks 15-30 or so are all pushed back a few places by the early bids, while picks 30+ start to compress as a dozen picks get cooked out for the academy sauce.

Points schmoints 

If we are using 27 for Grundy (or onto GWS with Bedford for 19/21) then no doubt we have spoken to those clubs and they have said theyd rather pick 27 than our three picks (despite being worth more points)

All the talk is that this draft has no depth so perhaps the extra late picks not as valuable as other years

I’m pretty sure the original pick swap which got us Kosi Pickett was a clear loss on points value. That’s why you ignore them. 

....Bang!

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. 

Not so sure LH Reckon 27 is Grundy's to Pies snd we are not taking  44 off GWS yet for Toby. Still have 52 from WC For flexibility to repay back in a deal.

    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.
