Josh Kelly anyone?

Oliver wasn't expected to be a high pick either. GWS must have rated Curtin so high that they literally traded out to get away from him.

Windsor was best player available, If we went needs we would've gone a key forward or key back.

GWS would've taken Windsor after us. He was highly rated.

From the outside its impossible to tell who is a reach or not. 

A lot of people had Curtain as a top 5 pick, Leake as a top 10 pick, Darcy WIlson as a borderline top 10 pick.  No one had Gothard as low as 10.  Tholstrop similarly was considered in the mid teens.  

It looks like Windsor, Gothard and Tholstrop were higher up clubs' draft boards than expected. And not just by Melbourne - sounds like if we hadn't picked Windsor, GWS would have at 8, or somone in that 9-12 range.  Same with Tholstrop - was apparently in the mix at Essendon's pick and would have been taken by St Kilda after us.  Gothard too had interest from St Kilda, Sydney and GWS.

Is it just me or is there a hint of the great man himself R Flower.

Obviously, a big call but the way he handballs and moves reminds me of a young Robbie. We can only dream.

Don't know why but thought the same.

In his highlights the two left-handed handballs in traffic are almost exactly the way Robbie handballed - we can dream

We have gone totally for needs. We have some talls and Jefferson to add in time.

Windsor brings us a total outside running machine on the Lingers style up and back but is more highly skilled and will kick more goals.

Kolt is an X factor half forward and potential mid who will excite fans and annoy and embarrass the opposition. Total fan favourite with a swagger and style. Let the MCC members get out of their seats once this dynamo gets among the big boys on the G. 

Both are 185cm plus but seem taller in their highlights. Neither will take a backward step it looks like from their tapes either. 

Bring them on as excitement machines to end our mundane forward thrusts. 

Well done again JT.

Thought exactly the same thing. Both hold the ball well in front of them when handballing with their left. And both seem to glide across the ground.

Looks to have a nice turn of speed and smart delivery but I don't think he's got enough class to warrant being selected in the top 10. 

Depends what you call class and Caleb’s got it. Smooth running long kick goal scoring and great link man on the wing. 
I’ll back JT’s judgement against yours Danny any day or night at the G!

At the end of the day when you have someone like JT calling the shots you back him in with any 'reach' picks. 

Exactly Oliver and Jackson where reaches at the time. We have one of the best in the business leading a team following these kids from around 14 for 3 years . They know way more about them than any pundit on the radio or tv or forum

I would say every poster on here would back JT over any other poster. 
We can still all have opinions and be civil about it. No need to be shoot down other posters for the sake of it. 
By the way every form guide that was published during the season agreed with Danny.

So would I! He's a gun recruiter.

I just saw the new highlights package on melbournefc.com.au in which he looked stronger in the contest than the reel I saw prior on AFL.com.au.

I hope he really pushes our wings next year. I felt Hunter in particular was too comfortable in his role and lacked intensity in many games last year.

Its interesting not since maybe 2017 have we drafted proper inside mids. The last few years we have looked to improve our outside players with a bit more class. Rivers (2019). Bowey (2020), McVee (2021) Windsor (2023).

As its been stated often here, our midfielders lack consistency with their affective disposal by foot so adding these types and building them into the best 22 can only help.

As always, very excited by new recruits coming to the club.  Hope is one of the secrets to a happy life.

I'm not sure how likely it is that these new kids will be playing next year, I dare say they are more likely in the coming years when Langers & Hunter may not be on the wings anymore, or Tracc is spending more time up forward than in the middle.

After years of MFCSS, the one thing I have been cured of is distrust in the recruiters.  They have done a fantastic job the last 5+ years and the club seems to have the right culture for success.  I'm sure these kids can get the most out of themselves in the MFC environment and with the right approach.

Even though I was hoping for Curtin I am very happy with Caleb Windsor, has speed, endurance and great foot skills and will provide that outside class that we were crying out for this year. Really looking forward to seeing Caleb force his way into our best 23.!!

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
