Rookie (1/10)



  1. I think this shows, how reading a quote out of context , compared to actually listening to the quote , can give a complete different impression. If you just looked at the quote in the tweet, as i saw NickDal Santo do on fox footy last night, it comes across as fair crack at Lyon. But actually listening to the quote it's really just a perfect comparision of Goody to a coach with a completely different old school style in Ross Lyon
  2. My membership arrived today with for some reason 3 Scarfs
  3. Oscar signs on until end of 2020 http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2018-09-13/oscar-signs-on-until-end-of-2020
  4. Based purely on the fact we are 13-3 when Spargo plays, and 2-5 in the games he's missed, Spargo has to play. So no change
  5. After yesterdays game he's now ranked 1st in AFL for Metres gained per game
  6. If Weideman, Curnow, and Francis are gone at pick 7 would Ryan Burton be worth taking or would that be a bit high? All Australian as a bottom-ager before missing this year with broken leg. Before his broken leg last year, he would have been rated higher then those 3.
  7. It wouldn't be a training report on Demonland without it turning into a thread about Saty.
  8. Jack Viney Captain, Vice captain Angus Brayshaw
  9. http://www.afl.com.au/afl-hq/the-afl-explained/rookie-players FATHER-SON – ROOKIE PRE-SELECTION The Father-Son Rule previously applied to players selected at the National Draft. Under the rule, other AFL clubs can bid for eligible players who have been nominated under the Father-Son Rule by an eligible club. The nominating club can select the eligible player by forfeiting its next available pick in the draft if a bid has been made by another club. If there is no bid from another club, the nominating club forfeits its last pick in the National Draft. A club can pre-select an eligible player as a Category A rookie between the Pre-Season and Rookie Drafts (with the player’s consent) provided the player had nominated for but was not selected by another club at either the National or Pre-Season Drafts. In that case, the relevant club would forfeit its last available selection in the Rookie Draft to take the player. This is the rule from last year, and with the new bidding system, obviously the National Draft rules have changed. But with the changes to the biding system only effecting players bid in the first 3 rounds it shouldn't effect the rules for Father-Son Rookies
  10. He has had 25 touches 6 out of the last 7 games, so that's reasonable consistency
  11. Not sure where i saw it , but Jake was listed as unavailable for the last championship game with a Hip injury
  12. Yeah your right, nominations were monday From Afl website: Monday December 1 - AFL delisted player free agency period (3) ends. AFL club list lodgement (3) and TPP estimates. International players inclusion on rookie list form; Scholarship players rookie list form lodged; Father/son and Academy pre-selected rookie nominations. So Brisbane decided not to nominate him, so he's free to be taken by anyone
  13. I like that he was struggling as long as he was battling though it, shows he was actually putting in and not cruising though.
  14. Ok, yeah when i was looking at it afterwards it seemed wrong, looking at the birthday paradox it's over 99.9% chance that a player will share a birthday. I was only calculating the likely hood of each individual draftee having a teammate drafted with the same birthday, not the whole group . If each team drafted 4 players, each player would have 3 teammates drafted with 1/365 of having the same birthday as them, so each player has 3/365(0.8%) Chance of having a team mate with the same birthday.With 72 players or 71 pairs of player combinations, with a 3/365 chance of having a team mate drafted with same birthday, making 213/365 or 58% chance of a team drafting team mates having the same birthday each year. But i'm probably completely wrong
  15. Unless we delist a contracted player the senior list is complete. We have 2 free spots on the rookie list .
