He’s gone from being the Dees “most likely” (young key forward) (in Knightmare phantom drafts) to “please JT, do not consider”.  Given our recent draft recruitment of young key forwards has been generally unfulfilling.   

If our recruiting team continue on with this mindset then why bother ever drafting a key forward again?

Gotta back JT's team in that eventually we'll actually recruit a future key forward who'll go and play a 10 year career for the Dees.

Remember it also comes down to our development and coaching team. At the end of the day it's up to them to develop the player. The recruitment team just picks them.

I'm personally not a fan of Jefferson myself but that shouldn't stop us looking at other options like a Phoenix Foster or Harry Lemmey who I rate much the Jefferson.

We need more mature support alongside JVR in his first few years. If tmac or BBB dont come up we absolutely need to pick up one of around 4 or 5 good KPPs that are free agents next year. Another junior burger doesnt help us while we are contending now

Sure but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be looking for another developing “junior burger”, as you put it, in the draft.

Highlights from a player some have around our part of the draft.

First minute is from his 7 goal game vs WA.

What have I missed, in that highlights package he looks good. I read earlier in the thread he avoids the contest but he seems to take plenty of contested marks, also kicking them from various angles.

He looks a bit laconic in general play but brave in the air

One of those words that mean something completely different to what many people incorrectly assume.

Laconic definition:  Using as few words as possible; pithy and concise. The definition of laconic refers to someone who doesn't talk a lot or uses very few words.

There has to be something in the Harry Lemmey story that we don’t know about. Touted as a top five pick before the season started and now outside everyone’s top 40.

Takes most of his marks clean and on the reach but not many if under any form of body pressure. Does not mean he cant but nothing that I see there would give me confidence in his body on body work.

A recent draft recruit by the initials of JVR might be OK and better than unfulfilling.

Compare his highlights to phillipou. I agree that Jefferson looks a long way off. Phillipou looks much more robust. I'd be trading up to make sure we get him. Contested marking and kicking them from 55. 

Easier trading up than said.

Yes Docs  some D/Lers have got very short memories OR selective choice overruling the JT record for recruitment.

Yes Weid was not  tick but Jesse was largely successful. 

JVR is being willed as our next best forward yet JT can't be trusted to select the next best option available!!

Strange bedfellows some D/Lers. Of course we are all experts and we want a finished product hot off the draft ! No Casey training and improvement or Choco kicking school. Must just about kill his opposition and kick 55m both feet  .  Oh and no West Australians please they miss the family dog too much. 

Again JT we trust in the draft and often up trading in selections for our benefit.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
