Change Coming to Father-Son & Academy Rules



Recommended Posts

NGA rule changes costs us Mac Andrew and now possibly Kalani White? What a joke.

I think the bidding should be before the trade period. Not sure how it would work but allowing teams to trade out first and second rounders for 15 junk picks is ludicrous.

I thought Kalani was almost a certainty for us? We definitely need him as a replacement for Max.

He’ll come through F/S. I doubt he’d be a first rounder though.

If the rumoured changes are true, an interesting scenario that will likely arise is when a club is put in a position where their academy or F/S prospect hasn’t been picked by another club at their pick during the round. They then have to make a choice whether to pick the prospect or take a gamble on another player hoping the prospect gets through to the next round. 

The end of round picks will become highly sought after as clubs with prospects look to pursue some hedging options in the draft making for some frame before and during draft week.

Well if the rules change, then if his in top 20 we will have zero access to him

Why is that? Based on the SEN excerpt, it purely sounds like you'd need to match within a certain amount of picks - it doesn't seem like they're restricting access in the same way that they changed the Academy system.

Not matching the pick 5 bid on Mac Andrew allowed us to bring in JVR and Blake Howes; a solid win so far.

K White is 100% nominating the Dees.

Yeah thats my read too, he'd be battline for #1 ruck position by being only a few years behind the newly recruited Ethan Reid. Much better to come down to Melbourne and take the tutelage of the best ruckman of all time in Maximus Aurelius Gawn

The F/S just need to be tightened up not overhauled like the academy system. The F/S just needs an 'anchor' pick from the round they are bidded on. Bundled with other picks to meet the point requirements (if any). It just avoids situations where a club can effectively double dip in the 1st round of a draft without having the round 1 picks. 

The academy is simple, even up the playing ground and take away any concessions afforded to interstate clubs - they always complain on social media about the Victoria clubs getting better treatment. Time for them to get the Victorian experience in the draft.

Unless he has onball skills a la Luke Jackson I can't see a ruckman being picked in the first round in the foreseeable future.

I'm envisaging 1.5 years at Casey minimum if not 2.5. First ruck is a very demanding role.

If it suits him and the family I'd even be offering to leave him in Qld for year 1 to develop just that little more. With his Dad as his ruck coach it probably wouldn't do any harm and gives him just that little more time.

The cold winds of Casey can be a lonely place to ply your trade

nope; not if he wants to play as a first choice ruckman any time in the next decade plus

ethan read will have that position locked by the time white is ready to roll

far better to come to the dees, learn from all-time great, and play for the side his old man was terrific for for years

I don't know how the father/son rules work.
 
All I know is that I watch the players sing the song after games with armfuls of kids and there are too many girls for my liking.

Is that knowledge or just an expectation?

Well I can tell you, when Jeff talks about Melbourne when he is commentating on the ABC in Queensland, he refers to Melbourne as we.

Yeah I totally agree that Jeff seems to love Melbourne and I think that's genuine. Kalani seems to have enjoyed his time with the Dees too when he trained last year. But purely based on what I see on social media and some comments Jeff has made about his son, they seem very ingrained in the Gold Coast lifestyle and have a strong network in Queensland. 

I have no personal connection and could be entirely wrong (hopefully so!), but I think there might be somewhat of a lure to staying on the GC given how ingrained he appears to be.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
