Just in reply to your post about Lin Jong and the grand final last year.
He was 50/50 to get picked up. The coaching staff kept him around the ball as much as possible to show off his 'draftable' attributes. He is very raw and won't be suited to being a burst player as he gets a touch lost. I think they way they used him got him over the line. 1 of the big clubs were very upset they missed him!
When it comes to TAC coaching there is lot more behind the scenes than you think. They don't take those decisions of tactics lightly.
