So the top 6 seems mostly settled. 

Let's assume Jefferson to the Eagles is legit.

To me, that means Ed Allan has already been picked, let's put him to Geelong for the sake of the argument (could easily be St Kilda or Dogs):

So we've got:

7. Hawthorn: ?
8. Geel: Allan
9. WC: Ginbey
10-12: St Kilda, Carl, WB ???
13: WC: Jefferson

So 4 picks and the following 5 guys: Clark, Tsatas, McKenzie, Hollands, Busslinger.

We might have some extra homework to do if one of those guys are available. JT would've done the work on McKenzie and Hollands and be pretty happy I reckon. Probably wouldn't need to do anything on Clark, you'd just take him.

Eagles need key forwards over key backs but it would be a surprise if they pass a local tall at ground zero of a rebuild. Saints, Dogs or Blues might've pounced on Busslinger anyway.

Tsatas would be interesting, a very non Melbourne player. Trade out of the pick for a team willing to pay up, then trade back in at 19 for Barnett or George? I can see that.

This. Again, recently Cal said that someone will slip to our 1st pick.

If the big Jeffer goes to WCE @ pick 12, does Allan slip through to us?

Bloos take Hollands, Dogs grab the big Buss 

I hope so. I was wondering if that was what JT was referring to as a potential great result.

Summarises very well all that seems to be said and heard about what we might do. Only thing missing is players we may target around the 37 range if our pick stays around that mark.

No reason to expect that.

Pick 37 is like 2 new players for each club. You are not saying the 2nd new kid for each club, each year, will never make it, are you.

Max was a pick in the 30’s and Tom Mac 54 and James MacDonald was a rookie as was Flash and the list goes on and on.

37 probably has a chance but after that it is like picking with a pin which is probably why we wont use our last two picks.

No, we won’t use our last 2 picks because we only have one rookie spot after tonight.

Keeping Hibbo and Melk limited our picks this year, but probably makes things easier next draft season.

I have no doubt we will get way more out of Hibbo and Melk that picks 73 and 78.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
