This makes our drafting of Finn Emile-Brennan interesting as we no longer have a B rookie spot.

So do we think he will go around pick 37 or do we not intend to take.  Of course we could swap in a late pick. 

Intriguing.

Edit: correction of pick 47 should have been pick 37.

Finn could go straight onto the rookie list (category A) if he made it through the National draft. Or Melbourne may choose to upgrade Moniz-Wakefield to the primary list so Finn can take that spot. Think he’ll be at the Dees regardless as long as he makes it past the first 40 picks.

MFC ruck duo in five years time - Kalani White and Farris-White?

Is there anyone out there called Farris (sic) Fawcett because they should be able to kick majors.

Worth a shot considering we're a bit light on for ruck depth.

I rather like his nonchalance with opposition 'gamesmen'. He seems-  on the footage - to possess some attitude, self-confidence and is not fazed by other blokes. Good qualities for a 'tall', alongside his agility, 'reading' the plays, taking possession of the ball, and he knows (albeit basketball) how to be effective, and when.

I genuinely feel sorry for blokes out there that have been playing footy since day dot, go through the system busting their absolute [censored] [censored] and yet a bloke can get plucked from a basketball court straight onto an AFL list having yet not played footy for a few years.

Doesn't sit right with me.

Doesn't seem right for me.

Inclined to agree, and also not convinced about the return on investment.

Someone like Stef Martin went through the grades organically. Turned up to play with his mates then through to the VFL. 

Half decent form in local footy would have anyone 206cm and athletic on VFL clubs radars as is.

I wonder if you gave Casey 100k more on the basis that they could spend 50k per year more on coaching/support staff and 5 x 10k on retaining high upside under 22 talent if you’d produce more afl players.

definitely 2 Brookies, maybe we take FEB as an a rookie as we have the spots?

Perhaps there's an ability to shift AMW from Cat-B to A which will allow us to take FEB? We have I think 3? Cat-A rookie spots to fill so could be a way around the issue.

There are far more advanced footballers or ruckman in this instance, either in the NAB league, suburban and country leagues or state level that would be well ahead and much more developed from a footballing point of view.

Getting a bit over clubs getting so sucked in by raw athletic ability over more natural footballers put there waiting for their opportunities.

You're either good enough or you're not.

The recently retired Stef Martin had basketball background.

 

And tennis and footy. He was good mates with my son at Haileybury, Berwick. Top bloke with smarts and lovely family. We were so disappointed when he went to the lions. Long time ago

The thing is Dazzle that as a club we now lack talls and this kid at 18 is already 206cm and 95 kg, he has played footy in the past so not a total novice and is originally from Vic. I also liked the way he handled himself body on body wise on the court. This could fill one of our long term issues, now let’s get a tough tall forward into our ranks. JT is on the move.!!

Nah, not necessarily. 

It's a fair bit more then that mate.

Let me rephrase that. Some attributes are valued more highly than others.

The most enticing thing about all of this is the fact that with ANB, AMW, this bloke and Finn Emile-Brennan possibly coming in, we are coming close to breaking an old club record of the most players with hyphenated names in its history.

He will get to learn at the feet of two of the best current ruckmen.  

He's already 206cm, so there's wont be much learning at the feet. Learning from Gawn's eyebrows and Grundy's man-bun?

Also, that means we now have FIVE 200cm+ players on our list, so we can finally hold an EntMoot.

Great prospect. Already knows a semi professional environment. Big unit considering he is only 18.  

Love the lateral thinking by the club. We now have 2 A grade rucks, a soon to be developed ruck in Faris-White and a future father son in Kalani White. We also could pick another in this year's drafts or even next year. very happy with this selection.

    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.
