  • Demonland changed the title to Jason Taylor on Gettable (17/11/23)

Only heard a snippet on Twitter in respect of visit to WA to meet Tholstrup. JT said that he's got 15 potential players at pick 11, and Tholstrup was the only one whose parents he hadn't met. He said it's important to meet at least one of the parents of potential draftees, and it was just circumstances that his visit to meet Tholstrup's parents was so recent.

My take is that Tholstrup is not a lock to be taken if available at pick 11.

One of the most interesting things he had to say was that he was still hoping to improve upon picks 6 and 11. Also the discussion returned to West Coast not having said no to our previous offer for pick one rather they have just not accepted it yet. In Jason Taylor’s mind at least, he has not given up on our ability to improve our draft hand.

6, 11 and future first (18 obviously) still seems enormous for pick 1, but Taylor has made some pretty unequivocal statements there about how much impact he thinks Harley Reid can have.

Unfortunately, if things do pan out that way, Petracca and Oliver can probably say goodbye to their Brownlow hopes!

Hmm, or, I guess, there's always the Voss-Black-Akermanis scenario.

Possible that we believe Petty will ask for a trade at the end of 2024 and that will net us a better first round pick than the one we will have ourselves, so its a gamble worth making

Gave nothing away other than we're still keen to trade up whether for pick 1 or improving our draft hand. 

The recruiters do a mock draft together every year and it was this afternoon. If anyone gets details of how it went, please share!

@Lord Travis what do you mean the recruiters do a mock draft? As in all the recruiters from the AFL clubs get together and do a mock draft?

Yes, they do a trial run for the technology and any rule changes. Whether they actually input real players or they get set up with 70 fake names to work with I'd have no idea. Maybe they do use the real players and the recruiters use it to psych each other out.

Pretty ordinary interview, way too much time focused on Harley Reid and a random Matty Jefferson question.

Nice to hear about Kynan Brown but no follow up on the rookie only designation. No question about Marty Hore.

The 2 big takeaways were:

1. JT does see a gap between the first bunch of names and the second, but not a huge one

2. Best available seems the motto - whether that's true or not time will tell

They do use it to create a bit of intrigue for sure. We took Hayden Young and Pickett in the year we the two first rounders, so showed our hand slightly. Jackson the surprise bolter then, someone else could be the same this year.

Honestly the idea of a mock draft with fake inputs, and double fakes, bluffs etc. is amazing.

A kind of standard interview from Jason Taylor.

He is a smooth operator who gives the expected responses and keeps his cards pretty close to his chest.

As he says himself, the AFL National Draft is the "Grand Final Day" for AFL recruiting teams. Let's hope we get some genuine star players at the Demons!

Especially players that are elite kicks and excellent decision makers! Fingers crossed! 🤞

Good luck to Jason Taylor and the rest of the MFC recruiting team. 😎👍

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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

    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
