    What about Polson? I think someone took him a few picks after your Caminiti selection. Have no real idea about him, but he is down at Peel and tested very well for the sprint and running jump. They sound kind of similar athletically. I can totally see us selecting 3 x small/medium players...

    I would take Daicos and Horne-Francis (183-184cm) over the taller mids, but we won't have that option. I can't see how the players available to us won't be rated approximately equally, and therefore it makes no sense to take Hobbs, Ward, etc. How do you think Essendon are viewing their...

    He is 183cm. It's not midget territory, but he's not going to help issues against bigger bodied midfields. The smaller mids like Hobbs, Ward and Sonsie are a poor fit for our midfield (Brayshaw, Serong) when compared with the bigger options like Erasmus, Johnson, Goater, etc.

    Those names you have listed only enhance the reasons to take Rachele. Only Walters is a genuine quality small forward, and his time is almost up. Freddy, Western and Henry project more as players who do their best work up the ground. The others are battlers who try hard (and Switta is made of...

    Anything more than just the top 3's? Would like to see Motlop's sprint time. He didn't look particularly quick nor agile when playing for South league, but playing a league finals campaign would have been tough. I don't know what to make of the agility test because often the results don't...

    That's not really where he has played his best football as far as I can tell. He does his best work as a centre bounce mid. He sounds like a balanced inside/outside mid, but he is not a genuine winger. All good sides have large mids that are amongst their best players (Wines, Petracca...

    Ward is too small. I have no issue with taking Rachele (similar size) to play as a forward, but we don't want our prime mids being Brayshaw, Serong and Ward. It won't work as a collective. Plenty of big mids are going to be around the mark.

    List Mgmt. 2021 List Management: Draft, Trade, Free Agency and Academy

    33 on the main list. This must be 36-38. 4 on Cat A rookie list. This must be 4-6. Total 40-42 when combined with main list. So we have up to 5 free spots at the moment. 1 (Irishman) on Cat B rookie list. Can have 1 more. I don't think we should be taking any DFA's, because it limits our...

    He had a shocking hip injury that has unfortunately stayed with him permanently and seen him go into hospital for multiple surgeries many years after he stopped playing. Well and truly Fremantled.

    List Mgmt. Welcome Jordan Clark

    I'd play him as an attacking wing or even half forward. A lot of his highlights are forward of centre and have him kicking goals. We have enough players already down back.

    Traded Jordan Clark and F4 traded to Fremantle for #22 and F3 (Carl)

    Treacy, Chapman, Young, Frederick, Walker, Sturt, Henry, Serong, Brayshaw are all in our best 22. They will play every game next year if they are fit. All aged 19-21.

    We don't have endless list spots for someone like Brander. We'd need to delist Crowden (which I would be happy with to balance our over supply of midgets), but even then I would prefer to have more flexibility on draft day than add Brander as a DFA. Including Crowden and Brodie, we are...

    It is an interesting concept and I wonder how much clubs really look into it. I remember reading an article about someone analysing Nic Nat's workout/rehab/training videos and saying how bad his movement (or range of movement) was. Something to do with his ankles and how that could lead to ACL...

    There was one ruck contest late in Q3 where I caught a glimpse of him maybe getting a knock. Possibly knee-on-knee when jumping at a centre bounce. The camera went away and couldn't really tell for sure. Didn't really notice him after that.

    I don't want us to draft Sheldrick. Maybe if we hadn't overloaded the list with midgets over the last several years, but we have to stop adding small midfielders. Not having a go at Sheldrick, it's more about our list profile. Obviously if Neale comes back in a few years then that will be...

    Two issues with Jaeger ... his body and his kicking. He has stayed on the park reasonably well over the last few years, but is there a tipping point where his body will suddenly fail? When he went to the Hawks there were question marks that his knee was wrecked. Then he suffered another knee...

    The deal would have had North's 2nd going the other way. Part of me thinks North played some reasonable footy and should go up the ladder ... but it is feasible the North F2 and Melb F1 are similar. Which makes the trade #1 for #4 + Adelaide F1. Let's say #1 for #4 + #4. It's not as crazy a...
