    Strategy 2021 Player wishlists, random thoughts and Hypothetical trade proposals

    I'd argue that not getting the top age last year made for a more interesting draft than not having the bottom age, most of the bottom aged kids get played out of position to accommodate the older guys wanting to get drafted. That meant the kids who had were licking their lips at a prospective...

    Universal Love Timmy’s mark of the year

    Yeah as tough as it is, I loved TOB's more because he's a Hawk but type of mark that Riewoldt took are so much more impressive and rarely rewarded as highly.

    There might have been less football played, but there was still enough. Interstate leagues have barely had any interruption, and there were games played in Victoria this year contrary to last. NAB League had about half a season, there was some school boy football played and most of a VFL...

    Well why worry about picks in the teens if it's going deep into the second round? The priority should be to get picks as early as possible. That means you get as close to the top of your draft order as possible, gaps can be filled with what's left over whether that's pick 16 or 30.

    Multiple late first round picks aren't helping any rebuilds. Since 2010, picks between 15 - 18 have yielded 44 players, of which 14 aren't in the league anymore and only 1 (Brodie Grundy) has made AA. If you want to help a rebuild you need to put yourself in the best position to get elite...

    Yeah there are better comparisons, was just making other comparisons to show that the "worse than Frost" thing is silly. Walsh also takes more challenging kicks, but it's hard to quantify that - Champion Data have their kick rating stats but they're not publicly available.

    Or, equal with Bailey Smith and above Scott Pendlebury and Zach Merrett? Position and pressure impacts kicking efficiency. Stats in isolation never tell the full story. The 99 times out of 100 part was obviously hyperbole.

    Player Watch 2021 AFL National Draft - NOT FOR TRADE DISCUSSION

    Rachele may be a little bit on the small side, but there is something to be said about a player that can come into the side in a certain role before graduating into a more imprtant one. Rachele gives us the option of picking a kid who could have impact up forward immediately, before coming a...

    Walsh is carrying the Carlton midfield, Smith is essentially playing 4th or 5th banana in the Doggies midfield. I'd take either, but if both were available you'd take Walsh no question.

    Sam Mitchell's direction for the club

    Indeed, Clarko's focus on defense meant that we were always preparing to protect the back 6 instead of move forward. That doesn't work for the cattle we've got at the moment because we don't have the midfielders who can use it like Hodge, Lewis and Sam could. Those guys could get the ball back...

    Universal Love Timmy’s mark of the year

    I honestly thought the worst of the three won. O'Brien flew and contorted his body, and held it despite a face down drop to the ground. Riewoldt's was back with the flight against a pack. That was just a bog standard specky. Got great height and a second lift, but didn't have much else.

    Only reason I went Rockets ahead of Pacers was that Geelong, like the Rockets, actually won a couple.

    List Mgmt. List Management Discussion for 2021

    Indeed, Nash in those few games in the midfield had more two way impact than any game I saw Cousins ever play. I watched Cousins have good games as a defensive midfielder and tagger, and I watched him have good games as a bloke who sat outside and did more attacking play - he never got the...

    I'm not even sure what Sam Day is anymore, reckon Nixon is picking up the family connection and throwing darts. Previous two years he's barely made a correct prediction so I don't think we need to worry about it.
