Welcome to Demonland Pick 13



Recommended Posts

Probably already been posted but Kevin Sheehan link to Draft possible Rucks/Forwards.

Kevin Sheehan’s 2022 NAB AFL Draft Top Prospects – Tall Forwards/Rucks

Great draft hand next year. Two firsts and 2 seconds. Likely will try to trade up further.

Likely a tall Ruck/Forward this year and next year. TMc, B Brown, Gawn all around 30 plus.

Sure to get Kynan Brown as a F/S mid next year as well.

Surely we wont be drafting this guy:

Thomas Scully
State: South Australia
State League Club: West Adelaide
Community Club: Lockleys
Date of Birth: 02/11/04; Height: 203cm; Weight: 89kg

A tall forward who had a wonderful start to the 2022 season, with his overhead marking and accuracy around goals earning him a call up to AFL Academy team that represented Australia. He showed glimpses of his sizable potential up forward as a marking target during that match against Collingwood’s VFL side in May. He booted 50 goals in 14 matches for West Adelaide in the SANFL under-18s, as well as playing one game for South Australia at the 2022 NAB AFL National Championships U18 Boys

From Cal Twomey's phantom the only 2 tall forwards/ruck we could access at around pick 13 would be Jefferson (pick 10) and Keller (pick27).

Should be a few of KPFs around pick 37. Lions have picks just before ours which will be used on their F/S bids.  So we will come in a few picks.

No doubt JT and team have their eye on a few. May surprise us and pick a mid???

I'd like to get Oliver Hollands with our first pick. He won the draft combine time trial with a 2km run in 5 minutes 54 seconds and who knows in a few years time we might be able to lure his brother Elijah back to Victoria to play with his bro. With our second, if any are still available I'd try to get Keeler (ruck/forward), Barnett (ruck) or Verral (ruck/forward). 

Now that we have Schache and JVR developing nicely, we don't have an immediate need to get a KPF this year and I just don't trust Jefferson at this stage, he may be a good player in time but I find skinny tall forwards are just serviceable ala Mitch Brown and Watts who were both first round draft picks... but who knows maybe he could be a Gunston.

Actually looks like the perfect target with pick 37! He's shown a lot and looks more likely than some other higher fancied tall forward names IMO.

Schach Attack?

We’ve got someone getting ready to sew a new mini-banner for the cheer squad already with this exact same wording! She misspelled Schache just as you’ve done so I pointed it out telling her that after all, we don’t wanna be confused with the Coll or Ess cheer squads. 😁

It’s a shortening to make it rhyme. Not a misspelling. Schache Attack doesn’t make any sense. Schache Attacky seems too gimmicky. But you might want to hold off just in case we go with Schache down backy or unless it’s a Casey banner

This quote is from…????

Coz we’re defs making one. 😁 Tacky or not. I thought Fritsch Blitz was tacky until I befriended Fritta’s mum. And she loves that banner so I’m not saying [censored]. 😁

Someone just suggested “Shaq Attack” 😳 Hopefully they’re kidding.

I’m sure you’re joking but we aren’t changing our draft plans based on Le Shach! I have no issues drafting skinny talls, but if you’re skinny you need to be a special athlete and I’m not sure Jefferson has the speed, height or leap to make up for a thin frame.

Schache definitely isn't the answer to our forward woes, he's just a stopgap solution while we chase a gun forward in the draft or as GNF mentioned we are hunting Mitch Georgiades. But i agree with you on Jefferson, if he has all the tricks to be a gun forward then sure we should go after him but if we have doubts about him then I think we should get best available mid at 13 which looks to be Hollands.

Any chance we package up some future picks to have a crack at the bombers pick 4? I thought I heard it was on the table?

Essendon said they’d consider moving it but don’t want to go too far down the order.

Which is pretty much what every club says every year.

We’d have to make them a crazy offer to go down to 13. I’d be shocked if they moved below 7 and likely not at all

    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.
