    I saw on the Demons Supporter Page on FB that Balic will wear #27, but wasn't actually at training this morning. So I think he has merely mistook Balic for Smith ... Fair to say Schmook has made a bit of a schmuck out of himself on this one .... I'll see myself out ...

    That sounds a more likely explanation than the merry go round that I was imagining :(

    Finally I can get my 2014 #8 Guernsey Frawley presented me with, signed by a player who isn't a flog and frame it! :D

    Best part of post-draft is trying to guess the number assignments.

    Assuming that -
    Lever = 8
    Balic = 27 and
    Maynard = 20

    I would like to see the following:
    Spargo = 31
    Fritsch = 4
    Petty = 9
    Baker = 35

    But my prediction of what will happen is
    Spargo = 31
    Fritsch = 33
    Petty = 41
    Baker = 35

    My guess:

    33 - Fritsch
    35 - Spargo
    41 - Petty
    46 - Baker

    I'd leave 4, 9 and 31 out for this season at least. Maybe someone like ANB or OMac has a ripping year and gets one, but I don't think they should go to kids - whether pick one or pick 100 - for a while yet. Probably the three most important numbers at the club, and wearing them should be a privilege.

    Love it. Wasn't he a Melbourne fan coming into the club? Would make it pretty cool from his perspective to wear such a significant number, and he's worked hard for it too.

    He was indeed a Melbourne supporter. He and members of his fam were Dee supporters. So he was over the moon to have landed here. Has earned the #4. Although I feel he made #43 his own. Either way, #4 will suit him well. Up and at em, Horse! :D

    I know in the scheme of things numbers mean **** all but we shouldn't be giving out 4/9/31 to draftees ever.

    I'm happy for Harmesy to take the 4 as others have mentioned being a dees fan and likely to stick around a while.

    The other 2? Well Lever/Hogan/Oliver/Trac/Brayshaw/Hunt would be the only ones I would offer them to this year or else wait like striker said. No need to rush them their are plenty of numbers available.

    I suspect the no 4 thing is good news for Harmes. Indicates the coaches have confidence in him. I do - though it took me a while. He’s come back to training in great shape and looks determined, tail up sort of thing.

    Why is tail up an expression anyway? In cats and dogs it just means visible arsehole and I don’t see why that is a good thing.

    I like to think it's because when peacocks have their tales up its because they are ready to go.

    7.
    12 was his old man. Tyson recently vacated the number 12.
    Edit: I just realised you're suggesting Jack goes to 12. I think Jack wants to build his own legacy and is happy with the 7.

    Already stated my preferences but i'll go again.

    Feel like May might do a Melk and pick a number close to his old one and end up with the #16 but i can see him in the #1
    KK feels like a #27 to me
    Preuss while i don't believe in assigning numbers to players who played a similar role to a past player, i'd love to see him in either #37 or #40
