    Prediction Rate our top 10 young talents

    Be interesting reviewing as the year goes on, hopefully will see some surprises in the general consensus and by years end, would love to see a Setterfield Dow Lob or Cuningham type make a push to the top end of the rankings.

    Training 2020 Pre-Season Training - pics, reports etc

    Thats just it with Polson, he clearly doesn’t have the game to play in the midfield, not a forward either at this stage, not dynamic enough offensively or defensively. He looks a completely different play at VFL level, at AFL level he brings effort, but he doesn’t really make an impact at all...

    Prediction Rate our top 10 young talents

    Just to get a gauge on our players taken from the 2015 draft on wards, basically from when SOS takes the reines. Brisbane and GCS are the only two teams that even come close to having the kind of talent we’ve assembled in that time frame, but our list bats much deeper, our top 10 easliy has...

    Prediction Rate our top 10 young talents

    Thought this could be fun, rate our top 10 young talents, from the 2015 draft on wards. 1. Harry McKay I love this kid, almost ashamed to admit I was disappointed we drafted him back in 2015. He is a beast 203cm key positions forward, with pace, skill, great contested mark, great below his...

    Toast Pick #17 Welcome to Carlton Brodie Kemp

    Couldn’t believe that Kemp got past Geelong and Hawthorn either, two Victorian clubs that could have afforded to play the long game with him, seems the hawks really wanted a running defender and rated Day’s up side highly and Cats really wanted the local inside bull Stephen. Seems absolutely...

    Toast Pick #17 Welcome to Carlton Brodie Kemp

    When you break it down like that, it does make it seem much more possible for a player as highly rated as Kemp to slide down to pick 17. Very good point about the acl playing a bigger part for an interstate club, as home sickness is much more likely to play a part if a player is rehabbing a...

    Toast Pick #17 Welcome to Carlton Brodie Kemp

    I get that King had runs on the board and was seen as a potential number one pick, but an elite 193cm midfield beast that can genuinely go forward and be a threat are probably just as rare, most teams have a 185-190cm midfielder, but mids that are closer to the 195cm mark like Cripps 194cm Fyfe...

    Toast Pick #17 Welcome to Carlton Brodie Kemp

    It’s like we’ve added another top 5 pick to our stable, this ones a 193cm midfield beast with pace, composure, good disposal, versatility and also has the intangibles, like on field presence and leadership. I do have this lingering doubt, due to the fact that Kemp went from top three prospect...

    Toast Pick #17 Welcome to Carlton Brodie Kemp

    Yeah half back would be a good for his development, once he’s closer to the finished product, suspect he could be the unicorn of the AFL these days, the 192cm+ elite level midfielder that can dominate the clearances and contested ball, then also go forward and dominate, the Fyfe Bont Cripps...

    Brandon Ingram

    BI is becoming a super star right before our eyes, he’s had to do it tough too, had so many haters on him since being taken at pick 2 in the draft, media people calling him a bust, even Lakers supporters, it was like he was expected to be a plug and play Kevin Durant 2.0 He’s longer the Giannes...

    Toast Pick #17 Welcome to Carlton Brodie Kemp

    Brodie makes the trade with Crows a massive win. Kemp was consensus top 3-5 pick after champs, Stocker we had as the 6th best player on our board in 2018, would expect Philp would have been rated as a top 15-20 pick too So basically pick 4 net us, two top ten propects, one of them, from one of...

    Has Jack Martin finally arrived ?

    Yeah ok.. just off the top of my head Charlie Cameron Micheal Walters Cyril Rioli Chad Wingard Hugh Mccluggage Sam Walsh Jayden Stephenson Brad Hill all players on the lighter side, tell me they don’t have much impact on games lol

    Has Jack Martin finally arrived ?

    Yeah can see Eddie making our forward line group walk a little taller, no pun Lol Think our young talented forwards might even make Eddie fall in love with playing footy again, will certainly love being in a forward line which he isn’t the best contested mark in, with the contested marking...

    Has Jack Martin finally arrived ?

    I posted this tread in 2017, after Martin played a ripper game against us, he had actually played a really good patch of high level consistent footy and it didn’t get much attention from the Melbourne media, but people were starting to see that it wasn’t all hype and this kid could seriously play.

    Has Jack Martin finally arrived ?

    Yeah I’m a big fan of Cuningham, he’s has gone under the radar a little due to injuries, but he could be a absolute gun, has some serious tools to work with and has a rare mix of explosive speed and goal kicking nous. Haven’t seen much of Honey or Phillips, but I think our best 22 has moved...
