Tho admittedly not looking very hard, I can't seem to find the answer ... Is Bennell still available in the draft? Tho it's still pretty unlikely, but is a Sydney or a Geelong able to cut our lunch here and draft him before he starts training with us?

No, he will be ours as long as he does not train with another team before December 1st I believe. He can train with us from the 3rd and we pay him with the option to buy. I believe that is how it goes, Not sure on Murray though, he cannot join a club until February I think.

HB: Young Murray

I/C: Pick 97

Who am I missing
Nice. Lots more pace, run and carry and x factor.

Fleshing it out it looks like:

B: Salem May Hibberd
HB: Young Lever Murray
C: Langdon Oliver Serong
HF: Martin TMac Bennell
F: Petracca Weid Melksham
R: Gawn Brayshaw Viney
I: Tomlinson Jones Harmes Fritsch
E: Jetta Hore Petty

Not bad. Weid still sticks out like dog’s knackers as a woefully inadequate key forward option. Biggest weakness in the side.

Ah cheers

Murray can't play until Feb 17 (which is meaningless given there aren't any games on anyway) but he can train from Nov 17, so he could start at the same time Bennell.

Weid is easily at the top of our greatest talents.

Or maybe it was we wanted to trade out a lazy sooking campaigner who got munted all the time who doesnt give 2 fu**s about football. Or 1 of the best ball users who also couldnt be f’ed putting in any work cause he was too busy swimming in tits. Costing us near on $1.5m a year. Bennell costs us nothing and still wants to play after all the injuries. Not even close to being the same
who were we spending $1.5m on?

Just pointing out people used to have a problem and now they don’t, injury prone drug users were bad now they aren’t
Nah mate try again. The difference between the bloke you still have 37 posters on the wall as a homage to and Bennell is one of them wants to be at Melbourne and the other doesn't.

Even though we should, we're not getting Martin. Serong will be gone by our 8th pick. I'd say Weightman, Jackson and Kemp will be the 3 we're looking at. I think 2 at least will be available..

But yeah, Weid has been a huge disappointment so far. Look, we might be foxing in regards to stating we're into Jackson for the draft, but I genuinely believe we're looking at him because we really aren't sure whether Weid will develop into anything decent. He simply has to lift this season. Petty nearly showed more in half a dozen games.
