Redleg (4/10)



  1. I wouldn't take those numbers as gospel, pretty sure they were wearing this year's training kit so it was more a size fit than anything else.
  2. This is a strange response for mine. These kids have put their name on the radar as 17yr olds and still have a full year of growth and development from a physical and football perspective. Of course the list of "top 10" will chop and change over the course of next year. Cadman, Ginbey and Humphrey weren't on this list last year while Hayes and Lemmey were taken much later on draft night and Teal not taken at all. Still, 7 out of 10 of these listed players last year were taken in the first round and 5 in the top 10 itself. We have 3 x first rounders (1 future) and 2 x second round picks to play with which gives us the strongest draft hand we've had in years. Worth keeping track of the talent on offer in my view. Also the phrase "next year is next year" will be equally applied to the end of the 2023 season and I would put money on us attempting to trade up as high as we can with the draft capital we have.

  4. Also quite possible she is a demons supporter. Would make that moment all the more special.

  6. ESPN Chris Doerre continues to dislike our performance at the trade and now draft table. Melbourne Picks: 15, 38 Players drafted: Matthew Jefferson, Jed Adams Grade: E Rationale: Melbourne's first selection in Matthew Jefferson was a speculative one for the stage in the draft. Jefferson is an athletic and strong marking key forward who doesn't need a lot of the ball to hit the scoreboard heavily but will also need to start finding more of the football more often to become a consistent key forward. Adams was a surprise choice in the second round given his injury history though is an athletic defender who has played a competitive brand of football when available.
  7. Has he given us a D- or F yet in his ratings? Just checked, he gave us an E
  8. Cal Twomey didn't know who this guy is. Looking forward to a highlights package if one exists.
  9. An article linked us to him earlier and we're allegedly keen on a young ruck so wouldn't be surprised to see us pick him assuming he's available. Also on board with @Pennant St Dee and hope we look at Sam Gilbey as a medium defender. Not a real need for us but I really like Blake Drury as well while Jonti Shuback might add more depth to our wings if we go down that path.
