Yep, it's his call, the same as Nick Blakey last year in choosing between North and the Swans.It should be up to the two clubs to decide who wants to use the higher pick on him.
I have a feeling its up to him to decide though.
He would probably get game time with us quicker than at Freo, they have some pretty handy small forwards.Yep, it's his call, the same as Nick Blakey last year in choosing between North and the Swans.
A difference tho, would be that apparently the Wiz lives in Melbourne, so making the move might be something he's more open to.
Kobi George is a bottom ager this year but I don't think will get picked, has talent but needs to work on his tankBelated update on our approved nga prospects.

Just a couple of articles I've found after a quick google search:
The NT Thunder Academy will field a strong team in its first game of the 2019 NAB AFL Under 16 Championships in Sydney tomorrow.www.aflnt.com.au
By Nick Creely AFL Outer East has today announced its final squad ahead of Saturday’s interleague clash with the Bendigo …pakenham.starcommunity.com.au
Both Andy Moniz-Wakefield and Ryan Koo Kwet look like really exciting prospects
Do you know anything about what kind of role he plays etc?Shane Woewodins son Taj made his WAFL colts debut a few rounds ago for East Fremantle which is a pretty good effort as there wouldn't be more than ten 16 year olds who have played a game this year in the entire comp. Also made the WA u16 squad and talent academy.
Didn't he come back to the club after Collingwood dumped him?Left on pretty bad terms. I reckon he’d tell his son you’re not going to play for Melbourne .
He may have? I just remember it was bad at the time.Didn't he come back to the club after Collingwood dumped him?
At Melbourne he's known as a Brownlow winner, at Collingwood he was just another underperforming recruit. Plus he only played about 60 games for the scum, unless he risks going up to the GCS he can pick Melbourne
Just another example of this club f****ng up! Woey was still playing ok football when we decided to trade him. But he bled red and blue and rightfully so, was pi$$ed off at the club for considering trading him. He only won the Brownlow a couple of years beforehand! I'm still pi$$ed off with the club for this one. And for retiring Junior too early! Those two stand out to me..Left on pretty bad terms. I reckon he’d tell his son you’re not going to play for Melbourne .
The Woewodin trade was a salary dump. I don't remember where i saw it but there is a video which goes into a bit of detail about it.
I believe Woey has made up with the club, mostly he was pi**ed at the decision makers at the time, but i think some of his ex team mates who are still around occassionally have helped heal those old wounds.
Best of luck to them all but I just don't know how I'd feel about supporting someone named 'Pugsley' playing for Melbourne.
Woey had 3-4 good years but stalled/went backwards after his brownlow.Woewodin was a good player who had one remarkable season. His manager then got him on an amazing contract, good luck to him, but unfortunately he was never able to produce that high level again. The pressure that Pickering put him under to produce the value of his contract was enormous and it destroyed his career, clubs just can't afford to pay top dollars for so so performers.
Woey was one of my favs as well but you need to tell the whole story. It's sad because he was very quickly forgotten at the Pies, they dumped him after 3 average years. He should have been a 1 club player, celebrated for what he did in 2000, but greed from his manager contributed to the story.
Thanks to space_cowboy who shared knightmare's thoughts about the above two guys in the 2020 draft and trade thread, posting it here as well to keep all the info in the same threadKobi George is a bottom ager this year but I don't think will get picked, has talent but needs to work on his tank
Deakyn Smith is a 2020 prospect, looks to be coming along nicely, gets a mention in the below article, about halfway down
George and Smith both have wheels.
From my piece on ESPN 4/9/19 I noted of George: "Breaking the lines, demonstrating the speed and agility to get by opponents, winning loose balls and bursting away." They're the things he brings to the table.
Smith similarly has shown his speed in game and also seems good aerially.
Both have some attributes to suggest there should be some interest in them as players with developable traits, without nearly having complete games.
I don't believe either were invited to the national combine, but I do see both of them as possible late/rookie considerations.
Pretty sure we've had him over here at one of the member functions (I could be wrong) so pretty certain there's no animosity held.The Woewodin trade was a salary dump. I don't remember where i saw it but there is a video which goes into a bit of detail about it.
I believe Woey has made up with the club, mostly he was pissed at the decision makers at the time, but i think some of his ex team mates who are still around occassionally have helped heal those old wounds.
This has me excited. Any idea yet on what part of the draft he'd likely go? Top end, middle, lower end?He also got named in the PSA team of the season
Taj Woewodin (Aquinas)
The son of Brownlow medallist Shane Woewodin has been one of the school’s best and most consistent players this season, stepping up in his leadership role in the absence of injured captain Josh Cripps and vice-captain Sam Emery.
The 2021 draft prospect, who is eligible to go to Melbourne under the father-son rule, has got an elite kick, gets in the right spots and attacks the ball hard.
