...they underperformed with the list they had, would be #1 if they beat Hawks in 2008).
Richmond is still going, they win next year, and they are #1, no matter what you think of their raw list talent. Teams win flags and 4 flags in 5 years is a record that can't be argued with.
...ask them who they were more impressed by:
1. The kid who runs fast and kicks it long, or
2. The kid who is composed, is a good baller user, and makes smart decisions with ball in hand.
Guarantee 9 out of 10 will select #1, and won't even know who you're talking about when you're referencing #2.
...at #1 (not unreasonably given Twomey has him rated #1), they do not have enough draft points this year to match that bid.
Currently they have #12 (1,268), #36 (502), 48 (302) = 2,082.
They would need 2,400 after discount, meaning that as it stands they go into credit in 2021.
If I was...
...on JUH, forcing the Dogs to use all of the points from their 1st, 2nd and 3rd picks (whatever they end up being)... Their 1st pick moves up to #1, and our pick (and every other intervening pick) gets shuffled down by 1 position. Their 2nd and 3rd picks move to the end of the draft.
...thing, that) the least unhinged trade of all when compared to those above
At various stages in that trade period, we could have held draft picks 1,4,6,19,20. Not a brilliant draft admittedly, but we ended up with Cooney, Ray, Rawlings, Veale, Koops and Street. Players that were available...
...you factor in that we will likely bid on JUH and have that matched, we don't really get to choose the best young player in the land with Pick #1, so Band 1 would mean we end up with #2 and #3, which is less of a boon than #1 and #2. Hopefully the club are proactive in providing this clarity...
Here it is:
GWS were given #1, #3, #5, #7, #9, #11, #13, #15, Phil Davis, Rhys Palmer, Callan Ward, Tom Scully then access to Bugg, Cameron, Darley, Golds, Growden (easy Joao ), Harding, Hombsch, Shiel, Treloar, Tunbridge, Ugle, Wilson, Shaun Edwards, Hampton, Aylett, Josh Bruce, Sam Schulz...
...out the current value of their concessions and first round picks by judging the worth of what they left for.
Such as if they picked a player at #1, that they trade for a player and #6, where the player is now retired and the #6 pick was traded for #30 and that player drafted at #30 is now...
Again, I can understand why a club may choose to have their pick #1, stay as that pick #1.
If others can't, that's fine. I've given my reasons and others will have her own opinions on the matter.
Your position though is fail-safe as if they bid on Jamarra I get a "I told you so" and if they...
I reckon Rayner is worth a pick between 10-15 and Saad a pick between 18-25.
Rayner was taken at #1, but I don't think he's done anything to justify that selection thus far. That may change, but he's still got a long way to go. If he was down here in Melbourne, he would be heavily maligned. The...
Please take McDonald at #1, Adelaide, much prefer a decade midfielder at #2.
I'm really intrigued by a Cox vs McDonald/Grainger-Barras/Thilthorpe comparison.
Reckon Cox at our second pick would be outrageous (#HighlightsVideoDraftingExpert).
I don’t see any reason why he can’t be the #1, what we might need is someone to underpin the whole thing structurally and play the anchor role.
Cox does that for the Pies and they let Mihochek roam, likewise with McStay and Hipwood, Casboult and McKay another example where the deepest anchor...
We could do this to Sydney as well - Sydney have more draft points worth than Port, who have more than WB. So at pick #1, bid on Campbell, matched then bid on Jones at #2, matched then bid on JUH at #3. This sequence means all those players are very likely to be matched.
It should also have serious consequences.
Say, West Coast finishing last next season and Cripps opting to go as a free agent there, Carlton match and Cripps says I'll go into the draft.
Picked at #1, no compensation pick, no trade.
...be no way Bevo plays him (e.g. Minson, Campbell).
I don't know if any are obtainable, but ideally I think we need a mobile ruckman who can play #1, allowing English to play forward/backup ruck, and still has quite a few years left, not a stop-gap older guy. Or at least someone who can step...
