I know the TV coverage starts at 7pm, but what time is the actual first pick made?  Is it 7.30?

(No desire to sit through all the waffle before the interesting stuff happens.)

It's going to be like watching the Brownlow isn't it?

We're apparently keen on acquiring GWS' pick 7 so must be keen on a player who will be gone by our pick 11.

Windsor at pick 6 very likely unless Watson is still available. Watson a chance of getting through if North select Curtin instead of Duursma.

Doggies apparently are set on drafting Sanders even if Watson is still on the board.

Hmm, Leake, Caddy or O'Sullian

I think our ideal situation outside of pick 1 (Reid) is landing GWS' pick 7 and selecting both Watson and Windsor if available with picks 6 and 7 likely to be picks 8 and 9 after academy bids. Something like the below.

1. Reid

2. Walter

3. McKercher

4. Curtin

5. Duursma

6. Sanders

7. Read

8. Watson

9. Windsor

Is our 11 + F1 > Adelaide's 10 + 14/20?

Remember the Old Days when this was Our favourite part of the year. Normally started by Round 4 because the season was done. Being a Finals worthy Club with TWO fairly high picks I've got my eyes closed, fingers crossed for a Key Position Type and a young bloke who hurts you with his foot skills forward of Centre. Think there's plenty of options and may the Recruiting lads continue their success.

Crows eying off WC future 1st with Sid Draper in mind:

They get Scott Welch’s boy via FS next season. Looks fairly handy so wonder will they look at packaging some first rounders next year for a top pick before Welsh gets nominated or to target a ready made player like Petty

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
