  1. On what I’ve seen of JVR, he will play up forward.
  2. Earlier training photos had Andy Moniz-Wakefield wearing the #41 so JMcV gets another jumper - perhaps 43?
  3. I used to be a grumpy person but winning the premiership has turned me into a model citizen. I don’t litter the streets and I help little old ladies cross the road. I’ve become a cross between Mahatma Ghandi and Jesus.
  4. Considering the subject matter, it’s quite humorous.
  5. The idea of playing in the first match of the round grew on me last year when we won those Friday night games. Looking forward to it now.
  6. The NGA system for all clubs except the northern academies is basically on its knees. Who would spend years developing a kid for him to be virtually open slather for selection by other clubs.
  7. Ned Long was an early stand out in the NAB League. What happened to him?
  8. It was confirmed today by the AFL that Melbourne’s NGA nominations for the draft were Mac Andrew and Andy Moniz-Wakefield. Former NGAs in Kobi George and Ryan Koo Kwet Kim we’re not nominated by the club.
  9. These are the official father-son nominations for 2021 - Collingwood – Nick Daicos Melbourne – Taj Woewodin North Melbourne – Jackson Archer Port Adelaide – Jase Burgoyne Western Bulldogs – Sam Darcy

  11. On the other hand, the 2020 draft: 1. Jamarra Ugle-Hagan (Western Bulldogs) 2. Riley Thilthorpe (Adelaide) 4. Logan McDonald (Sydney) 6. Denver Grainger-Barras (Hawthorn) 8. Nik Cox (Essendon) 10. Zach Reid (Essendon)
  12. I wonder if the likes of Declase and Hore have their eyes on the fact that unless you nominate for the draft, you won’t be eligible to be selected by your original club again at the following mid-season intake. Return of the Mummy, Part II? Retired Giant's shock draft nomination
  13. This should be interesting because all of a sudden a number of players who have been completely out of the limelight for the past three months are going to be front and centre. Reputations could be made if players test well.
  14. I’m still liking the look of this player. I see that he seems to be drifting out of the estimation of the draft gurus. Cal Twomey has him at 21.
  15. Going to the Cats so no longer of interest on the draft board.
  16. Here’s the link to the story. Good luck getting past the pay wall. https://www.heraldsun.com.au/subscribe/news/1/?sourceCode=HSWEB_MRE170_a&dest=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.heraldsun.com.au%2Fsport%2Fafl%2Fdraft%2Fmac-andrew-opens-up-on-his-meteoric-rise-as-his-afl-draft-stocks-soar%2Fnews-story%2F9abf2f091c60a268079d2deb1a185b82&memtype=anonymous&mode=premium&v21=dynamic-cold-test-score&V21spcbehaviour=append It’s a nice feature on his life and attitude to football but very little analysis of Mac’s game.
  17. MELBOURNE CEO SHOOTS DOWN "BEAT UP" REPORTS AROUND NIGHTCLUB STOUSH WITH WESTERN BULLDOGS “Responding for the first time to the allegations, the Melbourne CEO said there wasn’t anything sinister that came from the potential incident.”
  18. As much as I wish Jay well, it’s a strange decision by GWS to chase a player who has been on another club’s list for a year and a half and struggled to get a game. Then again, they are after Brander as well and he’s very much in the same boat.
  19. We were hard done by in 2020 but we needed that extra 12 months for that younger group who underpinned our success to mature.
  20. Thanks WJ. Fullerton’s a nice part of the world, sunny climate and very close to Disneyland. And if Deakin’s into beaches and surfing, the drive to Huntington Beach isn’t too far.
  21. It’s been written elsewhere that the is a a shortage of young ruck talent available for this draft. That being the case, it’s hard to fathom that the best ruck draft prospect would still be available with our second draft pick at 39 (or wherever that eventually falls).
  22. Yes. Where does this leave Collingwood’s ruck stocks? They have Grundy, Darcy Cameron and Mason Cox who according to most judges, is a tall who is no good in the ruck. By the time they use up their draft points to acquire Nick Daicos, they’re not going to be in a position to pick up any ruck gems.
  23. When the write Adrian Dodoro’s biography, this will go down as yet another triumph.
