Legend (6/10)



  1. Not MFC but a look back at history and the dawn of television in Victoria. How Melbourne's 1956 Olympics paved the way for AFL broadcasts of the future
  2. Thanks to Ricky @moredees on Insta for these great images ~
  3. Eye on the future: 10 draft prospects to watch in 2024 24 in 2024: A look ahead to next year’s top prospects
  4. More rubbish reporting from the Herald Sun. Headline: DEES’ OLDIES RIPE FOR FIRST SESSION, OLLY MISSES MEMO Josh Barnes - Track watch Opening Two Paragraphs: “A bunch of senior Melbourne leaders joined their younger teammates for day one of pre-season on Monday but Clayton Oliver was not one of them. “As an experienced player, Oliver is not required back until next week, with the first week of training officially only for first to four year Demons.” If Clarrie is not required back until next week and is still on leave, exactly what “memo” has he missed?
  5. For all bar the northern states, the academy system has been rendered meaningless. A move is on foot to change the rules again to make the academies worthwhile again. Academy bid disparity “going to change” as early as 2024 draft
  6. The starting order for next year’s draft. As usual, we can expect plenty of changes over the next 12 months. 2024 draft order: Pies hope for Hawks slide, Tigers load up
  7. And the winner is … 143. Tyla Hanks 105. Kate Hore 74. Olivia Purcell 65. Sinéad Goldrick 47. Eden Zanker 40. Lauren Pearce 37. Alyssa Bannan Eliza West 34. Eliza McNamara 33. Shelley Heath Paxy Paxman 30. Blaithin Mackin 22. Tahlia Gillard 21. Maddison Gay 16. Lily Mithen 6. Sarah Lampard 4. Megan Fitzsimon Casey Sherriff Rhiannon Watt 3. Tayla Harris
  8. According to the Herald Sun, this is the order for Day Two of the Draft My guess is that there will be some passing as the evening drags on and there's space for rookie upgrades. ROUND TWO 30.

  10. No 42 is gorn. Day 2 of the Draft is going to be a wipeout for the Demons.
  11. I don’t suppose that Melbourne has ever had a Koltyn playing for the club before?
  12. Wow. Another disappointing way to bow out of a season! Three consecutive losses. Ouch! Let’s vote and remember - there’s always next year.
  13. There’s a lot more to recruiting that meets the eye. The top recruiters spend a great deal of their time on due diligence, interviewing the players they fancy, their families, coaches, school teachers etc in order to establish as thorough a profile of their target as possible. I don’t have that information but on what I’ve seen of his footy skills and prowess, I would be happy to see his name come up at pick 6 if that indeed, is our first pick on Monday night.
